A lot of MS fans got real mature this gen and are willing to let bygones be bygones and put an end to the console wars. They keep waving white flags but the trolls are colour blind except when that white PS4 destiny bunde spurs more troll topics.

All i can say at this point is $21 billion. Consumers wanted next gen, so they had to build it themselves, lol.

Exclusivity only matters between consoles, PC doesn't count.


When a PS4 owner can easily get access to a PC? Your logic just fall to the bottom of the ocean.

I was thinking about possibly buying an X1 for Ryse, Forza, Dead Rising 3 and Titanfall.

But since I own Titanfall for PC, and plan to pick up Ryse and DR3 for PC... Well, there isn't much reason for me to now. I'm not spending $500 to play Forza...

This doesn't even count Dead Rising, Ryse, and TitanFall which are still considered Microsoft exclusives. Don't be mad because MS operates on two platforms when sony can't even keep their PC division afloat. OAN all sony laptops and PCs run Windows. MS win....

Is this what fanboys have fallen back onto?

lol you can tell I've been out of gaming for a while and biking through these summer months in the great outdoors (you nerds should try it), because I completely missed that Ryse was going to PC.

Definitely will try that out for 3 in the Steam sale.

a pc is not a console.

however, if the pc is running windows- then microsoft still wins :)

See how that works?


Care to explain how MS wins if it's running Windows? Microsoft only makes money off of software they sell or develop, they don't make a cent off other people's software

also, Windows is free to college students and other people (good to know these "other people lol)", see how that works? =)


... u r dumb bro lol


Operating System =/= Software


Yeah, everybody knows that the OS is part of the hardware...

If you are going to try to stealth troll, at least try to sound intelligent and make statements that dont kill your credibility.



ms is a software company that licenses their operating system to hardware companies that put together computers.

xbox is a subdivision of MS.

if the game is no longer an exclusive because it's now available (going to be available) for PC- then this does not really count against MS because the game is just readily available on 2 MS platforms- XB1 and Windows.

Everyone playing the game (which only runs on Windows and not Mac) has therefore already paid their share to MS just by having the OS.

Hence, if the game is now available to PC and XB1, MS is still the winner even if the game is no longer an XB1 exclusive.

I said you were dumb earlier because you basically answered your question within your statement:

-How is MS winning if they only get paid for software they have licensed/worked on?
-The game runs on Windows.

So... while they don't get the profits from the game, the simple fact that the game is running on MS OS means that MS has gotten paid in some function throughout the transaction.

(sorry for breaking the TOU btw)
