How so? I think MS has definitely taken the necessary steps to increase their output both quantitatively and qualitatively, but so have Sony. 



Around the Network

Sony Will win again, I don't think Microsoft built any momentum in terms of exclusives this gen. One could say "The PS2 crushed the Xbox, and the 360 lost a very tight race the following gen." That would be true, but the OG Xbox had many more highly rated exclusives in its resume and franchises like Halo were starting to soar....fast forward to today....and there hasn't been a great Halo game since Reach. So yeah ...Microsoft has an uphill battle next gen.

What a stupid survey, this kind of trashy thread has no place in gaming discussion. This trash deserve to be in a sony discussion.

That's a bold statement when we have yet to see anything from their new studios, versus Sony who has a proven track record and hot sequels in the pipeline.

But we shall see, it will be more interesting than in a long time for sure.

Fully agree, this could have been written by myself. MS could do what Sony is doing, but they have decided on a different strategy. They are a giant company, I'm sure that the console side of things is not a priority to them in the big picture. Some people even say that they came in on the console business just to slow Sony down basically.



I find the Xbox PC service more appealing way to access exclusives than buying yet another hardware.
It's also ecologically more conscious, less plastic and waste being generated...

To the unified gaming platform !

You say tomato, I say tomato 

"¡Viva la Ñ!"

This is the only conclusion we can get to without MS having prooven anything yet with any of its new acquired studios.



It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.

Microsoft isn't even competing anymore. They don't need to sell Xboxes. They are perfectly fine with their users playing on Windows. Xbox is just another platform for them to sell software. They are a software company after all. The bigger fight will be between MS, Valve and Epic. Plus Microsoft is in an extremely good condition for the upcoming cloud gaming wars with Azure.

Sony in the other hand relies big time on their business with PlayStation. It has become one of the most important branches in the entire company. So guess who will push more for hardware sales.

Doesn't mean jack in the long Run though. Consoles as we know them are coming to an end. Which platform will remain relevant in the glorious future of mobile and cloud gaming remains to be seen.

Sony won CES with just a PS5 logo. Of course they're going to win.
