He didn't say never. He said in about 10 years there will be no need for dedicated hardware anymore. That's why selling next gen consoles isn't important for MS because they're already looking past next gen.
The head of Xbox just unveiled a new console, but Phil Spencer isn’t too worried about selling you one. “I don’t need to sell any specific version of the console in order for us to reach our business goals,” he told me in an interview yesterday, the day after Microsoft held its annual E3 keynote.
And who cares if Sony pays MS $$$$$$ to use their Cloud? I'm not a MS shareholder, I just like to play games. In the end gaming is entertainment and even if Cloud gaming is the future like we're seeing now with streaming movies/music, content will still be king.
Consoles are over when we the consumer say it’s over by not buying them. We dictate when that time comes. Looks like you didn’t respond to the examples of Xcloud use. Glad we sorted that out.
Thanks for the quote that literally backs up my argument haha. MS wants you in the family. Because once you in you are more likely to keep investing time and money. The Series X appeals to those who want it, simple as that.
You said you wouldn’t expect MS to win if Sony followed them in the cloud space. I said they would profit massively lol. That profit literally would keep Xcloud investments strong if you want a gamers benefitting spin. I wouldn’t talk about it though until Sony actually announces something. Its funny you said your just a average joe gamer who likes to play good games, who previously admitted to wanting bad launch exclusives if they give a glimpse of the consoles power.
