Fable and Forza were titles Microsoft made from scratch, Halo as we know it came post acquisition with directional changes, but it was still halo. I had the Xbox 360 and ignored the PS3 because of the ridiculous price. Gears of War was the fresh new IP that kept my loyal to the 360 and over (seven million other people, I am guessing. ). It was a third party exclusive they made a deal for because they wanted to use as a weapon against Sony. The game that was supposed to be Uncharted was supposed to be a fantasy game, but Sony made a creative decision to have Naughty Dog change the game into a third person shooter since the tides were turning. Last gen Microsofts third party did battle with Sony's first party with Gears vs Uncharted. Sony had no answer for Halo, so their FPS dominance could not be touched (and still cannot). To be honest I am glad Sony quit trying to be like Microsoft with Halo and decided to be themselves. IF they didnt we wouldnt have Hoirzon Zero Dawn, Gravity Rush and so many other titles that popped up between those two periods today.
If you feel the only notable games Sony has come out with are Uncharted and Horizon, then I can understand why you actually think Sonys first party isnt as great as Microsoft. Luckily for the truth, Sonys studios list of games tell the story objectively. Anyone who looks at the situation objectively cannot deny it. Microsofts studios have nothing they could really teach Sony and thats why when Sony had laid off workers from Sony Santamonica, Microsoft was ready to take their table scraps for the coalition (which back before they decided to give up on making a new IP was known as Black Tusk).
Sony is destroying Microsoft in every way that a company possibly can and really...the only thing Microsoft can say is "we have a more powerful console coming, with more controllers." The way Sea of Thieves looks....they really need to push that game back, or else its going to get destroyed.
Okay, you're projecting your interest in Gears on all 360 users. It was popular but it didn't save the system, again it was a popular game on platform with a lot of popular games.
If you feel I'm downplaying Sony's 1st party lineup, perhaps people are doing the same for Xbox? I named the titles that are truly notable.
I don't understand what you mean by, "table scraps." Do you mean talent?
Eh... Sony hasn't stopped MS from making notable games and acquiring a fairly significant audience. So no, Sony is not destroying them in every way possible. And quite frankly, that's a good thing. Competition makes Sony better.
