Halo. Gears. TitanFall. How is it MS sees the system sellers before they happen?

Shooters appeal to casual gamers and they are the biggest market.

I never understood how Gears was popular with its Atari Jaguar tank controls

Enslaved is the most under-appreciated game of the 7th generation.

Halo sure, but gears and titanfall aren't system sellers.

Gears of wars has been all downhill and the last one was really bad. Titanfall is also on 360 and pc so it won't move systems for the xbone. It would have to be exclusive for that.

And I mean exclusive to the console, not the company.

Those games will sell well though.

Well they all innovated the genre and each one has a dedicated fanbase. I like all 3 of those.

it must be. and somehow they got their force blood on me, because lately i've been able to move things around on their xbox with the wave of my hand, and command its actions just by the sound of my voice.

Shooters weren't the huge genre on consoles they are now when MS saw the potential in and cultivated Halo. GoldenEye did okay but that could easily be written off at the time as Nintendo/Rare voodoo that wouldn't be replicated. Medal of Honor did okay, but not better than plenty of other games in other genres. Console FPSs are the big deal they are now because of MS and Halo.
