Well then they be liars. I’d say Phil was optimistic in his PR which you can’t blame him for keeping things hopeful. Seems BC, Xbox X and Game Pass was their main R&D for the first few years. Somewhere along the line they realized it’s easier to buy studios then form your own. Phil pitches to the CEO and the rest is history.
Yes I agree and I don't blame him for being a PR person trying to promote his console the best he can (even if I point out the hypocrisis in some of his speeches) I just laugh when people deny that he is doing it and have been promising and not delivering until this last year of X1 (even if it doesn't really have a direct impact to releases on X1 anymore) excusing him that it takes years to improve the first party (sure the games to release will take time, but we can't say it takes 4 years to buy the devs, and then excuse another 3 years to release games).
It's been said at every E3 last few years.
Well...I admit it wasn't the perfect analogy. 🙄
I don't expect XSX to win either. And I'm pretty sure nobody expected the XBO to compete. As much as I love it, it was doomed since the day it was revealed. No head start, weaker hardware, higher price, etc. I think I made a thread (maybe it was my alt, attaboy) saying this gen was gonna be one sided and no fun. Next gen probably will be as well but I do expect the XSX to have a few victories here and there.
