1) Will wait and see with the Hardware. All we know their next Console could be nothing more than a Dongle. 

No. There is literally no evidence to suggest that.

2) Sega was competing with Sony and Nintendo. Sony had the 3rd Party, Nintendo had the 1st Party, Sega stood no chance. 


The Nintendo 64 failed to set the world on fire... And the Gamecube (Sega's Dreamcast Competitor) hadn't even launched when Sega dropped out of the console hardware market.

Sega LITERALLY only had SONY as competition.

Have you even been reading the posts?

3) Tell me, How has Steam evolved when Competition was added like UPlay, EA Play, GoG and EGS? I understand Steam had Competition to get to number 1, but now they are number 1, competition has zero affect on Steams operations and innovations.

1) Discord has provided Steam competition and Steam has started to adopt Discord-like social features.

2) Valve adjusted it's revenue splits, giving more cash back to developers thanks to Epic stores favoured splits providing heat.

3) Epic Game Stores game review system is superior and Valve is working on it's own system to better it.

4) Steam big Picture mode was thanks to competition from other clients like Pegasus, Gamehub and more, to enable a UI for games with controllers/TV's.

I can keep going on, but you get the gist.

Right now competitions MAIN benefit is more revenue for developers. (Thanks Epic Game Store!)

...And that alone means you are flat-out wrong on this point.

4) If Sony rejects, Nintendo will accept. Nintendo would Glady have Elder Scrolls 6 to increase Hardware and software sales. What many don't understand is that Sony will take a cut of Xbox profits with game sales and Subs. Every digital game Xbox sells on PS will add more revenue to PS. More games = more profits. Steam is a great example of this.

Sony and Nintendo are independent and may refuse to agree, or may even agree to agree.

To blatantly assert that if Sony will reject something that will mean that Nintendo will accept something... Is blatantly false.

This is just your own hypothesis and not based on what these companies will do.

5) Companies have been making games for both platforms, this is normal. I am sure they will have no issue porting old games to PS. Doesn't have to be the whole library either. Also GP games can be streamed on PS. Otherwise all new games will be developed on PS moving forward.

Technically you can stream gamepass games to a Windows 98 PC if you can get a modern browser environment via a hacked kernel.

But you are ignoring the part that games that are streamed have to be ported to the servers hardware, are you even reading my posts?

6) Valve and MS have allowed people running GP on the Steamdeck. Valve isn't exactly trying to block GP from working.

Valve has allowed people to modify the Steamdecks software and hardware environment to any extent they desire.

Gamepass is not a native Steamdeck App.

7) MS will make more billions when they spread GP and Games across all platforms.

That is the general goal. - But isn't their userbase growth starting to slow? They need more consoles to sell more subscriptions.
