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.

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 agree and disagree. I think you're totally right about people moving goalposts to match the "Miscrosoft sucks" narrative. Indie games count, except when they don't. Remasters and console exclusives aren't eligible, but sometimes they are. Sales numbers only count when Metacritic scores support them, or vice versa.

At this point, I don't even care what people think. I just want some damn consistency.

That said, I have no clue what Microsoft is doing. It seems to be mismanaging its studios and assets, focusing more and more on Windows, and turning Xbox into a "service." This is not what I signed up for.

Wii U and Xbox One are basically in the same situation when it comes to first party games.

The only difference is that the X1 actually has Multiplat games, Thank God to that.

BUT, as a PS4 owner myself (this would work the same way for PC owners), i only play on my X1 for its exclusives. Which sadly, i had to learn the hard way that they are few and faaaar between. Again, just like the Wii U. Huuuuuuuge Exclusive droughts.

So if you ask me today, of course im not happy with the console. I just barely play it as it is and i already played the exclusives that interested me.

I refuse to buy an inferior version of a Multiplat for the X1 if i have a PS4. It would be silly of me to Pity Buy a multiplat just to use the console and justify my investment.

I will wait because...what else? But if the only relevant exclusive of this year that remains is Gears4, i will sell my X1 in order to buy the PS4 NEO.

Bro, you reading my mind or what? I feel exactly the same except selling my xbone part. I have 27 ps4 games and 3 xbone games. I wont sell it because im a collector and because im still waiting on some kind of exclusive im interested in besides sunset overdrive.

Cup head physical or im out.



I have only one thing to say about this... BULLSHIT!
MS and Xbox are not going anywhere, just keep your eyes open on E3 and you will see.
All this talk only is happening because the BC on Xbox is proving to be working great and have a lot of people interested in playing the 7th gen titles on XOne.
