I know. "sales don't matter!"

Well.... They kinda do.

Where are the Kingdom heart games? Nier? Yakuza? Hellblade? Even cliffy decided to go ps4. And just tons and tons of indies.

Say what you want about these games, I'm sure that if XB1 at least matched ps4 sales we'd get way more games. But there is a 30 million unit gap and it's literally growing every day. Devs go where the install base is.
Whenever a game is announced, 90% of the time, it'll be at least on ps4.
An XB1 version might as well be a coin toss.

That's why Sony can be light on first party games and not matter, because the third party make exclusives for them by default.


Yet there are still 3rd party games skipping the PS4 and landing on Xbox. So there goes that argument.


Mid tier retail?

Ohh? Like?

Xbone is dead last yet again. M$ just can't catch a break this year unfortunately.

Hell, I enjoyed my 'bone just last night...I think I played, what...Sunset Overdrive...?

Hell, I enjoyed my 'bore just last night...I think I played, what...Tomorrow Children...? Nah, just kidding, Sony closed the game down...already.

It closes in November, which will give it a life 3 months longer than Project Spark. Atleast it was FTP unlike Project Spark though.
It's uncanny how everytime a company does something bad it turns out MS did it first.


Wrong again. Project Spark was free to play.

But how would you know that, right? Not owning at Xbox One and all...

Mfers acted like I was trolling when I asked if Phil Spencer was the problem


Phil is doing the bidding of MS HQ. I garauntee you that Nadella is going to be phasing out the xbox brand. At least the hardware side of it. That is whats draining the divisions finances. Slowly they are transferring the brand to the PC. Slowly they are phasing out 1st party exclusives. Eventually they will phase out the hardware.

That's a good plan, both for MS and gamers around the world.


MS does give a flying f*** whats good for gamers. They only care about whats good for their bottom line. They only care about gaming as long as it generates loyal customers who will keep paying them month to month.

The same could be said of Sony as well, but as an entertainment and hardware company, Sony has a vested interest in the actual gaming industry remaining healthy and keeping gamers in general happy. They also have an interest in producing console hardware as long as feasibly possible. Same for Nintendo. MS doesnt need the hardware, as they are a software company. They dont care about the health of the industry as long as the revenue keeps flowing. The proved that in 2013 and they are proving it now by their refusal to build new game studios or to produce any new first party software.

Some things are just painfully obvious.

Black Desert is coming to PS4 as well.

And Dead Rising will as well, it just hasnt been announced yet. The only way it wont come to PS4 is if MS partially funded it and put in a clause where it could never release on Playstation platform.
