Funny Because no where in my posts am i denying it. I just love how we went from comparing UC4 v OW to PS has more GOTY than Xbox.
What next, you want to compare controller sales in this debate too?
Keep moving them, you seem very good at it.
Phil shifted the goal posts because the entire Xbox brand decided to change thier entire gaming strategy even before the X1 launched. Maybe you have been under a rock.
Also companies make more money via digital than physical because digital media removes the middle man. There is a major reason why Xbox went the PC route and no different to why Sony is testing the waters as well. Horizon is confirmed for PC and not just on PSNow, its coming to Steam. Why would they do that if exclusives are so important as you make them out to be? Because its money.
Hardware costs billions in RnD, the less a company produces the less they lose as consoles are sold at a lost for many years before they make it back. Digital media there is no loss. Its all gain and something MS has realised long ago. Iv been saying it for years and companies are doing exactly that.
If exclusives mean that much than why would MS put there games on PC and Switch? Why is Minecraft still a thing on PS? Serious question.
You never ceases to amaze. Yes R&D cost money, and that would be more likely a fixed cost independent of how many units you sell, so actualy the more you sell the better on this particular costs not the opposite.
And MS was talking about how much HW they sold, how X1 was the fastest selling xbox ever until they stopped talking about sales since 10M soon to be shipped, besides that ludicrous it doesn't matter how much you sell the whole year but during holidays. No MS didn't change the strategy before X1, they stopped talking about it and changed how to spin their PR mid gen.

Mr Puggsly: "Hehe, I said good profit. You said big profit. Frankly, not losing money is what I meant by good. Don't get hung up on semantics"
