You still dont get it do you. QB sells under the Xbox Devision wheather you buy it for PC or not. The sales and profits dont go to MS but to Xbox so your still contributing to the brand and its end of year results. MS might not see a hardware sale but they dont have to, the console has sold 20m units and continue. Gamers like yourself never intended to buy an Xbox in the first place so MS are being smarter and still able to take your money without buying there console.
There is no money in console sales however there profits come from Software and your still supporting Xbox since game sales come under that Devision.
Im a PC gamer myself and i still own an Xbox because of many other reasons. QB will still be an X1 purchase for me even though my PC can run it better.
Except no. Again, this is just a desperate rationalization in the face of your preferred console losing one of its biggest reasons to buy said console. Talk all you want about how this is an overall victory for Microsoft Studios, but depending on how well it sells on PC you might see more and more Xbox exclusives run on PC as well. And then suddenly poof.
Xbox is gone because there's no longer a reason for it.
You have done no research in your posts which leads me to think your not even serious. Your basing your facts off He said She said nonsense.
Let me explain it to you and prove you wrong just for the giggles. Microsoft have stated many times that Xbox is an important part of there buisness
As stated by the CFO, so whos word do i take here, the CFO to one of the biggest corpations in the world, or an unknown forum warrior claiming the end of a profitable gaming devision?
XB1 has 20m units sold to customers around the world, and basing Xbox off the past, this isnt the first time great AAA MS games crossed to PC. Halo 1, 2, Gears 1, Fable 1, 2 and afew others have all made it to the PC yet the XBox consoles are still around.. wierd why? Xbox biggest brand Halo made it to PC and yet the XBox version outsold it by miles.. interesting.
Hardware sales dont bring in the profit, Companies focus on where the money is. If your going to sell more games with a higher profit margin then selling consoles with less profit margin then the anwser is simple. Sell the games. QB will sell 500k on PC and maybe even more compared to selling 100k consoles where Xbox only make little to no profit what-so-ever.
Go on, i want you to buy QB on PC, go support MS and XBox while trying to downplay there own hardware, its funny reading these comments. MS make billions a month. Thanks for contributing.
