How is the focus not on more exclusives? They have more 1st party studios and teams than they have ever had at any point in their 20 year history as a gaming company. 15 studios and somewhere around 22 or more individual teams within those 15 studios. Plus they have numerous 2nd party games in development through Xbox Global Publishing.
They have always had studios working on games, dating back to the glorious original xbox days, but not much variety in quality came out of it. They can buy all they want, but from the statements spencer has made leading up to now, they seem to have other priorities on top. So i still stand by my comment. I'd love it if they can compete with nintendo and sony on first part games and exclusives, and pump out killer AAA hits. Hopefully this is the majoirity of their big studio games, and not just smaller AA titles.
