review scores and user reviews are now irrelevant if they are only the exact same type of sub genre which are all under the same genre.

Is this only applicable to games that are exclusive to Xbox platforms or all games in general?

always moving the goalposts to protect anything Microsoft.

Bro, a guy was playing a game on a pregnancy test the other day

Get out of the 2010's. Wake up and join us.
I'm waiting to play it on my fridge.

That last sentence is more of a Pony trait. Microsoft have been blasted by Xbots like myself for their stupid mistakes. Their last mistake was to sneakily up the price of Xbox Live. They soon reversed that due to the outrage.

The price will be coming back you aren't that naïve to believe thats it are you, just delaying the inevitable.

No doubt the price of Game Pass (not Xbox Live) will go up one day. Regardless of how sustainable Phil Spencer may say it is.

But the manner of which they tried to up the price of Live was a little dastardly. They read/heard the feedback and reversed it.

Considering it will be hugely enriched by the modding community I’ve no idea why anyone would want this on console. I’ll be building a new desktop for this regardless of whether it was to come out on PS5.
The same reasons 10s of millions have bought Skyrim, GTA 5 etc. on console? Cause most people don't have and don't want a gaming PC?

For what it's worth (unless it's changed?) you can do mods on Xbox. I'm pretty certain you can do mods for fallout, elderscrolls etc. but you have a smaller pool as they have to be certified (or something). Doesn't have the same options as modding on PC but it's not a bad compromise considering historically it was always a PC only thing.

Ok you took “I don’t know why anyone” a bit too literally there.

I personally have no interest in playing it on a console.

I’ve been thinking exactly the same. This, Starfield and Hellblade 2 have had me thinking of getting an XBox but I’m also considering building a desktop for the first time in 15 years. The ES6 has to be worth it to get the very best out of it right from the off.

Q3 20213.24m1.36m

Fourth quarter should be better for Xbox if they've kept units back given the big software releases. They might even break the 1.4m barrier.

What is even the point in Xbox.
Or the PS5, for that matter. It's still unbelievable to me that two tech giants released new consoles and a year later it's still borderline impossible to get one at retail price without a huge a mount of hassle.

Your issue is the scalping market, not the companies.

The more people keep buying consoles from them (scalpers) the longer it'll continue. They prey on people's fomo and it's obviously a very lucrative market. Any attempts to stem the tide is met with derision. Amazon released PS5 this morning to Prime customers and people moaned about that because they couldn't get one. If they went on general sale the scalping bots would have snapped them all up.

I thought XBox was supposed to be winning? Looking at those numbers it's looking like the fight could be over before it starts...

I also thought people didn’t want to pay £70 for games…….
Tbf I still don't, but people in general do not mind paying for quality. I reckon XBox could have gotten away with charging at launch for their big games and bringing them to GP in 3-6 months, maybe a year... but they were desperate and I think it's funny that XBox owners have stopped buying games as a result.

I posted this elsewhere but eBay currently has a voucher for 20% off products from small stores using the code BLACKFRIDAYUK

Only lasts until tomorrow but it's a nice way of getting some money off games you might be planning to buy, including pre-orders.

ShopTo is on there which is usually cheap -> https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/shopto_outlet

Admittedly probably better for PS5'ers :)

People morning about Halo delaying co op whilst Naughty Dog haven't even mentioned multiplayer 18 months after launching the game. Doesn't get a mention.

Standard.

It's like I said earlier people hold Xbox and PlayStation to different standards. It's like the fact that the GTA trilogy have got a higher rating on MetaCritic on PlayStation even though it plays worse than it does on Xbox.
