I came home, looked at Vgchartz to see if there were anymore hardware updates, and software. Nope. Not tonight, but then I went to N4G and found something more disturbing than no new hardware update: Another likely Microsoft lie! More Aaron Greenberg crap flavored frosting added on top of the nasty Phil Spencer lying cake. Here's a link to what I highly suspect to be another lie: http://sirusgaming.info/2017/08/xbox-one-x-flagship-many-big-exclusives-says-aaron-greenberg/
OK, there are years of lies and possible lies here. First, though it's before Phil's time, MS said that Kinect would be an integral part of Xbox One. Please! OK, the rest is in the Phil Spencer era. Remember the secret sauce stuff? Deactivating Kinect was supposed to boost the power of Xbox One. Did it? At least to a significant degree? Then there was the power of the cloud! Where is it 2 or 3 years later? In Crackdown 3? How many times has it been delayed? It was just delayed recently. Will it get delayed again?
Back at E3 this year, Phil Spencer said that there were many more exclusives to announce. Well, Gamescom has come and gone. Where are they?! Many exclusives? What were they? 2 or 3? Now on to Aaron Greenberg. His newest potential lie is in the link above. He says that many unannounced exclusives are coming over the next year. Just recently he said that ppl buy Xbox because they have the biggest exclusives. What?! They have had one first party exclusive for the whole year so far: Halo Wars 2. It's sales were poor. The only other first party exclusives that I know are coming this year are Forza 7 and... well are there any more? Is Super Lucky's Tale first party? I know Sea of Thieves and Crackdown 3 are for next year.
Some more tidbits. They announced Scalebound and then cancelled it instead of making it work. Phil Spencer said awhile back, did he not, that they were investing in first party studios. Where are the games? Microsoft just said that more Japanese games were coming. What are their names? You'd think with such a huge drought, that they would announce every single game title coming.
Continuing, as is in the link above, more Aaron Greenberg garbage. He said that games from every genre (paraphrasing) will play best on their new flagship Xbox One X. I have 2 problems with that. 1. Every genre? So I have dozens of JRPGs coming that will be better on it? Lots of single player, story driven games? Or will it mostly be 3rd party FPS and a little else here and there? 2. Xbox One X is their flagship console? Now I may be wrong here and in all of this, but didn't MS say that Xbox One S would remain their primary console and that Xbox One X would be for the "premium" customer? Would the smaller seller for the "premium" customer be the flagship? I'm not sure on that one, though. However, I see no reason to trust Phil Spencer or Aaron Greenberg. Do you?
Lastly, all the nice guy stuff spoken by Phil Spencer. Let's all play together! Let's hold hands and be friends. Um, I don't think so. I think it's a Trojan horse trick! I think Sony is smart to avoid the trap. Think of past evidence of Phil talking all nice about Sony, then giving remarks like Xbox One X is superior to PS4 Pro (paraphrasing again) and that Xbox won't charge to play 360 games on XB1. An obvious attack on PSnow. But, we love you Sony. Better together! <3 I suggest Nintendo separate from MS immediately! Btw guys, I will be giving responses on my RPG blog soon, and will respond here soon. Maybe some tonight. I have been working and have been tired. Thanks for reading.
