Fixed what? we're 5 years into the gen and I highly doubt they have time to fix their problems before the next Xbox comes out. 

Next Xbox will do better automatically if they don't include any peripheral and the same price as PS5. If next Xbox dominates North America and U.K. they automatically win in the console space.

assuming sony just sit there and do nothing while shutting down all studios. History has proven xbox crowd has never supported new IP the way playstation crowd has,Sunset overdrive and QB are the prime example and i doubt that is going to change, with new studios.

They win compared to now. Doesn’t mean they’ll beat Playstation though. They’ll probably never do that again. Last gen 360 was dominating in the US. They sold 50 million in the US, yet only 35 in the rest of the world. Sony would need a huge fuck up for MS to regain that ground and even then, XBox simply doesn’t have the popularity worldwide.

I’d definitely hope MS will start to be competitive again, that would be enough. Dominating is very unlikely as things are now.

I’m really a bit disappointed with this event. Seems like they’re totally focusing on luring people into GamePass. I somehow expected more than a glorified promotional event.

Nah, Xbox dominated big time in USA and UK last gen and it was a Tie at the end. Dont see Sony doing as bad as they did with the PS3 any time soon.

In terms of console sales it was a tie, but software wise it wasn't even close. North America and UK buy more software/subscriptions than any other region and that's what makes the most money.



You can see that its gamepass that MS want to drill into people for their future online digital rental system. Not for me, I am a disk based person... but I can see after the next gen It may go the way of digital only, which will be a massive shame.

Software and subscriptions services are what matters the most and North America and U.K buy more games and services than any region. That's why the attach ratio was almost 2:1

2:1? That’s a huge exaggeration.

If that’s would be true, why is the attach rate almost 3:1 this gen in favour of PS4, although X1 is closest in the US market?

I have a very hard time believing that Microsoft will ever do as well as the Xbox 360 again. The first Xbox didn't sell all that well, the 360 sold well mostly due to how terribly the PS3 was doing (No other console manufacturer would get away with something like the Red Ring of Death and live to tell about it), and the second half of last gen somehow let Ps3 win overall. 

So Xbox wasn't putting out exclusives or making much ground for the second half of last generation, went into this generation with terrible PR and marketing, and have continued to spend the last 5 years not offering anything of value outside of Game Pass; what makes you think that they've earned consumer trust? 

So far this year they have 1 quality exclusive (Forza Horizon 4) compared to PS4's 14 games and the Switch's 8. (That's games with a 75 average or higher with 20 reviews or more on Gamerankings. PC multiplat and last-gen remasters DO count. However, if we're going by JUST PURE exclusives, then the numbers go: 0 for Xbox One, 6 for PS4, and 2 games on Switch). My point is, you're being awfully optimistic when it comes to this stuff.

Xbox one isn't doing nearly as well as PlayStation in Canada (Part of North America) and U.K. which makes up a huge chunk as well. The other countries do help, but not nearly as much.

What do you mean? They have plenty of time to fix the lack of RPG's problem next gen. inXile has been working on Wasteland 3 for a couple of years now, will very likely end up being Xbox/PC exclusive now. Obsidian meanwhile has 2 teams, 1 is doing a game for Take-Two which MS will likely let them keep developing for Take-Two, though they may buy the publishing rights to it from Take-Two and make it exclusive. The 2nd team meanwhile can get to work on a new game for next gen now that will be ready by 2021 or 2022 most likely. Then we have Playground's 2nd studio, who is supposedly developing the next Fable, they started on it last year so it will likely be ready by 2021 as well. 

And yet the console continues to not get exclusives, continue to sell less than the Ps4 and Switch, and continues to devalue itself by allowing users to play its 'exclusives' on PC. What value does an Xbox HAve anymore? 

They can talk all they want about these new studio acquisitions and the future but they have to give me something NOW. They've not given me anything of value for years now and the only reason my Xbox One gets use is because my roommate really loves Forza and the Youtube app. So what gives you the impression we can trust Microsoft to not screw it up? I mean, they have RARE under their belt and when was the last time Rare made a good game? They were still working for Nintendo.
