That's why they've defunded their internal studios and aren't interested in funding indie games or new IP. That's why during the Xbone's initial public introduction, they barely touched on the gaming aspects of the machine. That's why they were so willing to screw gamers while kissing up to content providers like ESPN and Netflix. Do you all recall the Xbone's very first commercial? It was about watching the NFL on the machine, not playing games.

Microsoft is more interested in competing with Apple and selling a living room hub than a game console. I have no doubt that they would be happy to drop games altogether to just sell annual licenses to watch movies, TV, and sports.


So im not sure where you got your information, my guess would be your ass, but here is a link showing they are throwing $1 billion into games.

He never said they were NOT making games: he said they did not CARE about games. I fully agree that their focus seems to be on entertainment and they would drop games at a moment if given a profitable chance.

Game consoles are dead. This *is* the era of living room entertainment hubs.

Seriously? Microsoft has more new AAA IP's than the PS4, by far. They've opened new studios, they're providing dedicated servers for EVERY game for FREE, and they've already set aside a billion dollars for games.

The Xbox One has a dozen things you can complain about, games aren't one.

Glad to see another person on this board with some sense TC! All these blind fans can't see that MS doesn't care about their gaming. Its about entertainment of other sorts now. MS has screwed over gamers yet these sheep still take the bait.

You mean after they stated games would come at e3 before the conference happened they didn't show games at the initial conference? NO WAY.

If MS doesn't care about games, why did they spend 1 billion on games? Why did they spend over 100 million on the controller? Why did they create a program exclusively for Indies? Why do they have more AAA games announced than Sony? Why did they make Titanfall exclusive?

I Why do they have more AAA games announced than Sony?


Let me guess, a game becomes automatically AAA if it's exclusive to Xbox One and non AAA Xbox One exclusives don't exist? Right?

Doesn't the ps4 do all of that stuff, too? It's perception. Microsoft wants nintendo's people, and Sony wants the 360 peoples the other demography are the same as before.
