Microsoft Has No Further Plans To Bring First-Party Games to Other Platforms

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Microsoft Has No Further Plans To Bring First-Party Games to Other Platforms

Damn, was hoping for Rare Replay Deluxe (with Donkey Kong games and maybe Goldeneye if they can work out that licensing issue). But hey, never say never. I bet if Ori does really well MS may reconsider.

And plus - this doesn't necessarily mean we won't see GAMEPASS on Switch.. Man I'd love to play Overwatch and Forza Horizon 4 on my Switch in handheld mode..

Someone needs to learn some math skills.  There have been only two consoles since I have been here, 360 and XBO, soon to be a third one.  And yes, I did make a Kinect prediction, which turned out correct, like many of my others regarding new versions of XBox HW.  The Kinect didn't help the XBO's situation, soon to be a very distant 3rd.  The S didn't help its situation.  The X didn't help its situation.  Hell, being $100 cheaper than the PS4 couldn't even help its situation.  What I got wrong was predicting that the XBO would be their last console, hence the 0 of 1.  Now, I believe that the Scarlett will be if they have another similar situation to the XBO.  Personally, I think it will turn out worse.  MS seems to think that may happen, as well, considering they want Gamer Pass on Switch and PS4/5.

What do you consider worse?

If Scarlett sells less but makes more money, is that a failure to you?

In what situation would that happen?  If the Scarlett sells worse, then that is fewer consumers to sell to.  If Xbox makes more money next gen in that scenario, it wouldn't be because of the Scarlett, it would be from them expanding their services to other platforms.

Scarlett can gain more memberships and sell less consoles than the XB1. Lets say 50m XB1 consoles were sold to the public, and only 20m were subscribers.

The Scarlett comes out and sells 40m consoles with 30m subscribers and considering Subs makes more money than Hardware (Hardware is always sold at a lost for most of its release) Also the Scarlett could sell more digital games which again profits more. Up the service subscriptions and digital output = more money especially when it adds up yearly.

You should know HW doesn't make you money, selling services and games does. Sure the more consoles sold helps sell the other two but if you market it correctly than you can find a bigger sub attach ratio as we know not all 100% of PS4 and XB1 customers actually pay for online and services.

SO if the Scarlett makes more money than the XB1, is that a fail in your books?

Alright you two.... be honest... how long until the next Steam/Switch/PS4 announcement from a Microsoft Studio?

Maybe, probably, not right now, no current plans...

How long does this PR quote last? until its proven wrong?

Idk I don't work for Microsoft. 

Look at this messageing.... 1day lateron.

"You know, we would like to see Game Pass on all platforms ultimately and I think that is a long term goal. We don't have any specific plans today, but we would love to see Game Pass really go everywhere." - head of gaming services Ben Decker (microsoft)

If games come day1 to Gamepass, and the "company plan" is to get Game Pass on all platforms (also consoles)....
Its a day lateron, and Microsoft managed to get PR to say something totally differnt than what was said yesterday.


Am I the only one that notices theres a communication issue over at xbox?
No one else see's this as a issue?

Awesome lesson friend but it doesn’t apply here when you made predictions regarding four different consoles 👍 Actually you just made a Scarlett one in this thread, so make that five consoles. Hell you probably predicted it about Kinect, too 🤣

You're getting warmer buddy. There might have been only two consoles, but there have been iterations for each one. You did predict the Xbox One would be their last piece of hardware. But then they came out with the S, and you made up some BS about them giving hardware one more shot but if the S fails they'd be done. But then they revealed Scorpio and you made up some BS about them giving hardware one more shot but if the Scorpio fails they'd be done. But then they revealed Scarlett and you made up some BS about them giving hardware one more shot but if the Scarlett fails they'd be done. Idk about everyone else but I'm seeing a pattern. Something tells me if we see a "Scarlett Slim" or something in a few years, you'll make up some BS about them giving hardware one more shot but if the "Scarlett Slim" fails they'd be done. Also throw in that same prediction at the end of the 360 era. You've had an erection for MS leaving the hardware race for a long ass time lol

Again with the misrepresentation. First of all, I highly doubt I said that about the S. However, I did say that about the X. I figured it would be the last hurrah because of my actual prediction was still Xbox One would be Microsoft's last console. So, again, same prediction. 0 of 1. Now, we have the Scarlet coming out. We'll be able to test my second prediction of Microsoft leaving the console business.

And as I did say with the S, if there is a Scarlett Slim that doesn't change anything. Even if the system is failing, manufacturers will always find ways to make a product cheaper.



Maybe you’re always assuming and looking for MS spin because you constantly spin yourself?

“No new hardware if ___ fails!”
*company literally releases new hardware*
“Doesn’t count!”

Adorable. Keep flinging that shit at the wall, friend 👍

Nope.  MS has stated on more than one occasion that gamepass, Xcloud is the future.  MS will be pushing to make both very successful and since Xcloud and gamepass really go very well together it make sense that MS would want them on as many platforms as possible.  Would you consider this any different from Google Standia.  Do you believe Google cares if you use their could service on Xbox, PS or Nintendo system, No.  From interviews, it seems MS is already trying to get away from the console wars and move into new territory.  That territory is where content is king and the hardware can be considered like a PC where any vendor can create the hardware to run it.
