Like seriously? I have both a gaming PC and a base xbox one. I really like this program. Sometimes I feel like playing on my pc with graphics turned up all the way and sometimes i love to lounge and game on couch and play on my x1. I just have to buy the game once to enjoy it across both devices. How is that a bad thing? A lot of you use the exclusives reason, but listen to this: Majority of people who game on xbox one dont have a gaming pc. Most of my friends who game on xbox dont care about pc gaming or are dont want to bother with the complexity of it or are not tech inclined.

I think it's kind of funny. I love it personally.

Because taking away exclusives takes away incentive to buy xbones, which further takes away odds of developers focusing on the machine.

That's why Sony gets the full focus of game developers like Nier, while xbone gets Scalebound. There is no positive that comes out from being less than half the community size of your competition.

No one is actually upset... and if they truly are... well then... their quality of life must be terrible and you could maybe feel sorry for them.

Exclusives drive hardware sales, so having none can be a bit problematic... Competition is super important to keep everyone accountable as well. Look at how abysmally Sony has acted this gen because nobody could call them on it... Thank god the Switch is doing so well. Hopefully that rights the ship... though Nintendo tends to be off on its own usually.

Only thing I don't like about it is it's digital only. I buy physical whenever possible so I wish they could make it work for physical purchases.

As I said, xbox is for the people who dont want to game on pc. Many people and lets face it majority of people are not knowledgeable about PC gaming. They could care less about cpus, gpus, ram, ssd, etc. They just want to plop the game in and play.

No one is upset. It's just the Sony fanatic trolls like this one here who are pretending to be upset with these fake ass concerned posts.

It's a smart feature and few people are actually upset outside a few vitriolic console warriors.
the bitter truth is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so. - Anton Ego

It doesn't even affect you if you don't game on PC so I don't see what the big deal is.

I personally love the games that give me a windows copy as well because like RE:7 I can download it on my laptop and play anywhere and still use a controller and get achievements.

I mean MS owns Windows and Xbox One it's not like PC is some other console not owned by MS
