How's the remainder of the year looking like for everyone in regards to games they'll be playing? So far I'll be playing
If we take about Xbox, for me it will be finishing these two games:
Azure Striker Gunvolt 3
AI: Somnium Files Nirvana Initiative
and playing these two when they come out:
Soul Hackers 2
Persona 5 Royal
If I manage to beat at least all these by the end of the year, I'll be satisfied. And if I have some spare time, maybe I'll play Star Ocean as well.
I honestly couldn't say what the issue is at Square when it comes to what platforms they decide to release their games on. Some games skip PS such as Triangle Strategy, Octopath Traveler, and Harvestella. Then you have some games that Square decides to release on Xbox like Star Ocean and The DioField Chronicles (note how Star Ocean is skipping Switch for whatever reason). Plus we already know Sony moneyhats Squares big AAA games like FFVIIR, FFXVI, and Forspoken. Although VIIR timed deal has supposedly come to an end and yet still no port to Xbox, as I said, I couldn't say what the issue is with Square releasing some of their games on some platforms but not others. It's not just Xbox, they've skipped a few games on PS as well and even on Switch.
Edit: or just buy a PS5+Switch, that would probably be cheaper than getting a decent gaming PC.
As I said this before numerous times, it's hard to blame Square Enix for not porting the games to Xbox. Different companies do business differently. Square just don't see the benefit of bringing certain smaller games to Xbox because they know they won't sell really well, and they probably know that whatever growth they can reach by bringing these games to Xbox, won't be enough for them from business perspective to even try. Other Japanese companies like Bamco, SEGA, etc. maybe also not satisfied with how their games sell on Xbox, but they see the potential for growth. Square most likely doesn't.
