Unfortunately this is likely true, Lol. They'd be shooting themselves in the foot though, the reason why Warzone is a buggy mess is because the Raven QA team went on strike during this but American corps hate unions with a passion, Microsoft is no exception to this hate, they hate unions too, I'm sceptical that Phil will stand by his word.

He went on to say this...

During a previous all-hands meeting a year and a half ago, Spencer said that he didn't have much experience with unions. In today's all-hands, Spencer addressed that previous statement. "Linda Norman and I have been spending a lot of time educating myself on unions." Spencer said. "We absolutely support employees' right to organize and form unions."

So he's saying anyone in Xbox can organise and form unions now, he has opened the floodgates, I'm fairly confident that Josh Sawyer of Obsidian is pro-union so it'd be interesting to see if any Xbox studios jump onto this, it'd be interesting to see if it causes a ripple effect, I firmly believe that Xbox should be pro-union in the wake of corporations and publishers being so anti-union, not only is it ultimately better for the employees but I do believe it would make Xbox a more desirable place to work at during a time where talent is scarce and everyone is swapping jobs, Xbox being the first pro-union major publisher would be an interesting thing.

Maybe Phil has more weight to make these decisions as CEO of Microsoft Gaming, maybe Microsoft Gaming can make their own policies and decisions which don't apply to Microsoft as a whole and that will be the excuse as to why Xbox employees can unionise but Microsoft doesn't allow it, or maybe this statement is bullshit and they're going to find a way to fire anyone who unionises but good luck doing that when the vast majority of the QA team voted in favour of unionising and talent is scarce.

I'll believe it when I see it, I suppose.

Does anyone have the numbers for OG Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One and Xbox Series in Japan?

A somewhat disappointing community response imo.  It'd be nice to have their tentpole series just go out with a bang and move on.  

-Gears 6

-MP content drip feed

-Maybe 2 official SP/Co-op expansions

Boom!  Give The Coalition creative freedom for a new IP and go from there.

These are just the estimates on VG Chartz.

I wouldn't know where to find a week by week breakdown of each console.

I just threw this together using the monthly sales comparison charts as a starting point. This is based on VGChartz estimates, which are based on Media Create/Famitsu. Sadly OG Xbox is before VGC existed, so we don't have weekly/monthly estimates for it.
