Forums - Gaming Discussion - Would it be wise for MS to emulate the practice of acquiring desirable games like Sony this late in the gen?

Or should they wait until next gen?

Depends on how long they keep going this gen, I guess.



They should start by OPENING studios. Making more games. Milking less of them.
That or invest in games that AREN'T out yet, as opposed to waiting until they were out then chipping in at the end.



  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

Did I miss the part where Nintendo wasn't also doing that with games like Bayonetta 3? Ocotpath Traveler, Mario + Rabbids, SMTV and more? Nintendo and Sony are both killing it. MS tried with PUBG.

Nintendo bought SMT and Octopath?

Only if they own the games. Since they're going third party, there's no point in pushing a console business that they're planning to exit.



If they're smart they try to found or buy and expand studios now and start development on next gen titles already, including VR, so the'll be ready and prepared when next gen starts.
