Forums - Gaming Discussion - Microsoft keeps getting better and better! Will it ever end?

I never seen so much firepower in Xbox but here it is it feels like Microosft has Infinity STones for their Infinity Gauntlet glove, Let me explain 

They Have the Best subscription game service add in EA play it's something that scares me and now they wanna add ubisoft play. 

Their backwards compatiblity is 4 generations of Xbox , with Xbox Original having less backwards and massive Xbox 360 games library playable to Xbox series consoles certain games have been upscaled to 4k from the Xbox 360 era this is nuts.

Retroarch this gem here I can play all Sega console generations and some Nintendo gamecube and Ps2 noone talks about this monster service it should be talked more because I've seen someone play Panzer dragoon Saga on retro arch on Xbox series X , and another Paper Mario thousand year door on Xbox series X

Xbox series will have a web browser that plays PC games, IDK if I heard this correct but this is rediculous? Someone correct me on the web browser thing?

It's dominates the shooter , western rpg, racing genres as exclusives franchise IP's.

Microsoft is growing as a company from other places it's gonna be a 2 trillion dollar company soon and noone knows how big Microsoft will be in next 50 years.

Dunno about that... Microsoft is a shadow of what it used to be in the 90s. Windows had 95% market share at one point.

Nowadays, Google and Android are the big guys. Apple is the "designer clothing" one. Valve is the cool one. Linux is the techie one.

Mircrosoft í starting to look a lot like IBM. Big and corporate, and on the way down.

Microsoft is looking to be only the second company to be valued at over 2 trillion dollars... Beating the likes of Amazon and Google. 

Pretty impressive shadow... I guess...?

Not really...  Market Cap is just a number (and the first company over both one and two trillion was Apple).  Tobacco companies are worth a chunk of money too, if that's how you value it.

In the old days, Microsoft was like Google but without any competition what-so-ever.  Apple was basically bankrupt (wish you had bought at $10 a share?).  If you bought any computing device to do anything serious it pretty much ran Windows.  Nowadays you actually have a choice to use Microsoft software or not.  That definitely wasn't the case in the past.  

Microsoft lost the technology thought-leadership years ago, basically when Bill Gates left.  Now all the technical stuff starts in Linux, and often it's Google and IBM doing it.  You could even argue that Xbox/Playstation are AMD, and PC gaming is Nvidia.

Marketshare is also just a number but you didn't mind using that to prove why Microsoft sucks now.

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Now if only Microsoft had some exclusives people cared about.



Love and tolerate.

I think people want Halo in it's purist form that is achieve-able with Joseph Staten coming back he worked on Halo combat evolved, Halo 2 , and Halo 3.

People love Fallout series

There's Doom series

Elderscrolls series

Wolfenstein series

Forza Horizon series

Fable making a comeback

Perfect Dark Series with Veteran Devs that worked on God of War and Last of us and many other developers

People loved The Outerworlds

Psychonauts series is loved.

Starfield is said to be the next big thing like elderscrolls in space

etc

Did I say that Microsoft sucks now?  They're still a very big player, just not the industry thought-leaders they were in the 90s-2010s.  I don't think that even needs proving, it's just history.  

Great companies are led by great thinkers:  Bill Gates/Elon Musk/Larry Page/Sergei Brin/Steve Jobs.  When they leave, there is a vacuum, and the company coasts.

You're literally basing that on nothing though. Microsoft does not just use Windows to prove that it is an industry leader anymore, it uses a multitude of other services and technologies. If the company was "coasting", it would be showing up on their balance sheets, which we can clearly see is not the case.
