@Snoopy you do realize that your whole argument was based on the fact that you think Xb is going to do great next generation because they acquired these new studio to make exclusives. if that's not the case and u believe Exclusive don't matter much they why do u think MS will do great in next gen.. what will be the difference next gen compared to this gen?? I M confused
Xbox is more than just consoles. Xbox has become a service that's why soon you will play xbox games everywhere, even on your phones. In fact, if the xbox streaming service is great, I might not even buy a console next generation. The new studios will help just a little for console sells because I don't expect these studios to produce games that sell on the level of Halo, Gears and Minecraft. Multiplatform games are still the games people play the most. These studio accusations are for xbox game pass because they have to have constant new games for it. Xbox consoles will do better next generation automatically if they don't make the console more expensive than the competitor and they can dominate North America and U.K. again if they play their cards right.
Xbox One X will also still be a viable console because I don't expect PS5 and Xbox scarlet to be drastically better. Which might be a great option for those on a budget when next gen starts.
market outside US is pretty huge.. there are still many places where Streaming services have yet to reach due unreliable internet infrastructure also spending habits are different. If MS could ditch consoles completely and jump on to Mobile Devices and PC with game pass and make Xbox some sort of OS where users can customize their own off the shelf hardware PC Parts, I can see it working.. but the reality is streaming for majority of the world is not there yet, sure the tech has improved but so did graphics and i doubt with next gen graphics and that 4K tv are getting so abundant that we will see Streaming take off in next gen.
If MS does focus on next xbox streaming tech rather than local rendering, they will again find themselves in the same situation as they were during start of this generation.. with cloud and Kinect nonsense.. same goes for PS Now and sony. So for developing countries streaming is not an option
P.S. Hence the reason MS got so much good PR for BC coz people still prefer to play game locally VS PSnow
