Some moving goalposts around here. When Sony was in a drought, no amount of third party and indie games mattered. Now they do supposedly.

MS first party output has generally been lacking, and seems to be getting worse. Hopefully they can have a good holiday, with Halo Wars 2, Crackdown 3 and FH3, but once again the first three quarters of the year are poor. Don't see Sea of Thieves making this year.

Everytime i see Cobalt on a list, i cant help but LOL

Talk about a list filler with that 67 Meta Rated game that lets be honest here, nobody cares.

 

Just like Gozilla right? hey Agro.... *whispers* that has a 38 meta.

First of all, you are lying about Sony. They didnt "had it" last year.

Actually, Xbox One has just Quantum Break for this year. If you want to count a shitty XBL game as Cobalt or Ori, a game from last year, or even a Killer Instinct DLC, i would say that you are just trying hard to include every List Filler to hide the fact that the first half of this year has been disastrous. 

Do i have to remind you that Quantum Break was underwhelmingly received by the press and also flopped sales wise?

BC is cool, but to say that someone is fine because they can battle the droughts with Xbox 360 games is laughable at best.

And finally, so what if E3 is weeks away?

Do you think that they are going to announce new games AND release them this year? 

This years Line-Up is already planned, and no matter what they reveal at E3, the list wont change.

For starters, don't tell me I am "lying". You're more than welcome to disagree with my opinion, but I don't give a shit enough to lie about it. Also, try toning down your salt levels a bit. I'm getting dehydrated just by reading your retort.

MS has more than Quantum Break this year. I listed other things. I don't care for your list wars BS. Others have replied to me and included a yearly sports update and a remaster in their list of things Sony brought by this time in 2015. Where is your reply to them about those "not counting"? And season three of Killer Instinct is more than just "a DLC" :)

You can remind me of your opinions about QB's reception and sales all you want, it's just more irrelevant salt sprinkled in.

Lastly, I never said anything about games being announced at E3 2016 and releasing in 2016. Try maybe reading the OP. He's concerned MS is throwing in the towel. He'll get his answer at E3, which is only a few weeks away. Hope that helps.

If you say (which you said) that the situation of Microsoft this year is the same as Sony's of last year, yes. You are indeed lying.

Why would i be salty when i actually own a Xbox One. It would be silly for me to bet against the console when i opened my wallet and spent money buying the console.

Also, im not fighting any list war, the OP is clear enough and im obviously commenting in regards of the Original Post.

Finally, i think you are being too agressive towards me. Calm down a bit so we can continue this discussion in peace bro.

Also, Sea of Thieves is the kind of game that appears on every list available when people are talking about Xbox One exclusives, but i see that game underperforming when it actually releases.

If the game actually underperforms, we will for sure see here how Sea of Thieves was never hyped, that nobody even talked about it, etc.

(Project Spark, im looking at you)

I'm not saying M$'s output is anywhere near Sony's but jeez! I see people saying games like Onechanbara Z (which i actually bought on day one despite being like a 29% on Metacritic at the time!) counts when comparing consoles or a port like Gravity Rush (which I also bought!) or an indie game like Resogun (which I got for free) is a system seller. Meanwhile games like Quantum Break aren't important because it didn't sell well or Cuphead is not retail and only retail games are important!

Maybe I'm not seeing the right threads but it seems like people want M$ to suck and the narrative will always switch to support it. I mean, get it. Ps4 is more powerful, sells better, has more games, had higher rated games, and has pretty much every advantage. You won ! No need to come at M$ like it's 7th gen, anymore.

Sea of Theives had been lauded since day one. People wanted Rare to make something different. You can't find a single "Sea of Thieves is going to be awesome" thread. It's still a game . It still exists. It still counts and hopefully, when it releases, it will be good.

Wow, your brutal!

I would be ashamed to include Godzilla in a List War.

MS is fighting a war of attrition. Many 360 owners are splitting in favor towards PS4, BC is really only meant keep people locked into the Xbox ecosystem.



I predict NX launches in 2017 - not 2016

If you follow the Xbox Official Thread you can find a review of mine of Quantum Break, which i loved.

I also made a thread about how Rise of the Tomb Raider is a Masterpiece.

It is ridiculous to rhink that im betting against the X1 when i actually own the console, and buy most exclusives Day One at full price.

But nobody can hide the fact that, even tho according to Phil Spencer this year will top last years "Best Line-Up in Xbox History", i cant help but be preocupied about the current exclusive situation of the console.

It is having Wii U like droughts for its exclusives and it is getting annoying for me as a consumer.

Also, i find extremely dumb to hype games without knowing anything about it.

You will NEVER see me hyping anything Sony without knowing better. I actually had plenty of discussions with fellow PS fans about the PS4 NEO, so i dont think that im the one that drink anybodys Kool Aids.



For me personally, Quantum Break + Gears of War 4 = best lineup in Xbox history.

If they don't completely mess up with Gears that is, but after the beta I find it unlikely.

I know. I checked your threads before commenting (I thought you were the guy making those "True exclusives" threads). Everything I said didn't apply to you but does apply to people in this thread.

I'm extremely happy with my XBO but constructive criticism is always welcome. This thread feels like a professional hit! It's crazy. I went into one thread this morning at about 1am and it was locked because somebody said something like "Uncharted is too shallow butTomb Raider (which comes to ps4 in a few months!) had just the right amount of challenge.

 

I disagree with that statement because U4 is waaaaaaaaaaay more balanced than the previous three and only offers hints when I'm sucking --and even then, they're optional. That comment got a thread locked and was nowhere near as venomous as some of the comments in this thread. 

 

I don't drink Kool Aid, either. I just like what I like. I always have. Some people seem to go out of there way to attack something that others like. It's not enough to win. They have to humiliate their opponents.

Stop acting brand new. We all know Microsoft releases their games in the fall/winter. Sony releases before E3 usually. Microsoft tends to always rule the fall and winter as far as releases and they like capitalize on the holidays. Thread done really.
