They only have a billion to play with. For a permanent exclusive they need about 200 million to cover lost sales on the dominant console. They could do it but expect no big exclusives in the second half of the consoles life.

Due to recent economic conditions, and the rising cost of Electricity, Gas and Oil, the light at the end of the tunnel has been turned off.

The 360 was a very successful console and it, too, suffered from too many timed exclusives. I can only imagine this problem getting bigger with the Xbone due to its sub-par sales.

What MS should do is go after a few solid developers like, Platinum Games, Deep Silver Volition and Vigil games and have them develop new IP's as well as resurrect old ones.

MS already has a solid number of exclusives. Some were just mismanaged and ill-used.

They have more than 5 unannounced games to be shown at E3 iirc though, so hopefully they keep knocking out the hits with the second batch of exclusives.

"Xbone"

It feels like a small kid would refer to it as such. Yuck.

MS can't be bothered with building their own talent

It's better than calling it "The One" like some people do.

I will not call it Xbox one as the original Xbox holds that name in rights, so it's either the retarded name and over Ego name of The One, Or Xbone.


Or TheXFlop what I will call it if they fail this gen.
