Truth:

Microsoft just doesn't feel like a company that is interested in gaming. It's just a means to an end to them. It's just a way to get extra dough. I know that's what companies want-- money-- but Microsoft isn't even coy about it like Nintendo and Sony are (the latter publishing and providing a myriad of new IPs this past gen), who seem to show outward passion for their first-party content, studios, and the industry at large. Conversely, Microsoft simply comes across as a company that kills studios in order to increase their market share.

Yes. Which is why nobody would miss MS if they were to drop out of the gaming industry.

They are still exclusives at the end of the day. What you Microsoft haters learned a new word today and are using it throughout the day. Typical.

This is why I love Microsoft, they Moneyhat the games I want to play, the huge AAA blockbusters. I would hate it if they only moneyhatted indie games I already have on my PC. :P

lol the fact that you made this post shows how out of touch you are

Other than Halo, all those games are made by 3rd party developers. This proves what the article says, Microsoft can't bring itself into investing in first party studios like Nintendo and Sony. Founding a base for long term creation of exclusive games is something that is not in Microsoft minds.

Moneyhatting developers is not something that is viable throughout the entire generation. They will do so for the first couple of years, then they'll let the Xboners enjoy solely multiplatform games for the rest of the generation with the odd Halo and Forza thrown in
