Quote from: FIREPOWER on February 13, 2024, 01:32:25 AMSubs make money if done as an additive way to your traditional business. They don't make money when you bet the farm on them like MS and Disney are doing. Throwing all your best shit on a sub day one while your traditional method for doing business are tanking is why Disney is in trouble and now Xbox is also in trouble. Disney backed off from day one movies on Disney Plus but the damage has already been done. MS stayed too long and now they are porting their games to PS5 and Switch. It doesn't make money when you bet the farm on it and if it did we wouldn't be having this conversation about Xbox going third party right now

Quote from: FIREPOWER on February 13, 2024, 04:03:11 AM You fucking idiot. What userbase? After 7 years of GamePass being on the market they are approximately 30 million, a fucking joke. It doesn't help that most of them took advantage of $1 deals and whatnot. You're a fucking moron, and it's no surprise, you are also a lemming. They are bleeding money you fucking idiot. The money they make from GamePass is a drop in the bucket compared to how much they've spent on buying publishers and licenses to keep third party games on the service. The proof is the fact we are even having this conversation of them putting their games on Playstation and Nintendo in the first place.Sony started turning a profit on their hardware a year after launch of the PS5. Same shit happened with the PS4. Sony also make a majority of their profit from games people buy on their store and the microtransactions they get which is why the profit they make from physical is inconsequential compared to the insane money they make from the PS Store. Nintendo makes money from hardware but they don't make nearly the amount of money Sony prints from massive GAAS games like GTAV, Fortnite, and COD being sold on the PS Store. It's basically free money from Sony requiring zero investment on their part. They make money from their userbase just existing and buying games and microtransactions on the store in huge amounts which is why hardware sales are important you fucking imbecile.MS decided to gamble with their primary money maker, their digital store, since you retards weren't buying games. They put all their big games in a service and the result is Xbox tanking in both digital and physical retail. The store where MS makes most of their money from which is the 30% cut they make from third party devs is bleeding money because they've cultivated a fanbase of morons like you that don't buy games and wait for everything to go to GamePass.Don't even try to deny this fact because we see it in monthly sales charts with PS5 versions of multiplats and PS5 exclusive games dominating the chart. Starfield was the first time in many years we saw an Xbox exclusive make the top 10 on any chart and it tanked shortly after.

Quote from: MalaXmaS on February 13, 2024, 03:24:17 PMI ain´t reading all that shit by you, only the first paragraph which is already enough.In short, of course 30 million is nothing because again, the userbase you moron.The whole strategy of buying publishers, at first it was a TCHBFR moment, but what everyone expected was for MS to SECURE exclusives and good games for the Xbox brand.What MS ended up doing was expanding Gamepass to the competition.From a business standpoint, it makes sense.From a retarded fanboy standpoint like you, it doesn't.Regardless, there is no denial that MS has been handling this publisher acquisitions like shit, and putting downgraded versions of their games.Which is why I already cancelled Gamepass.I am going to rely on playing old games that I bought, physical and digital.I don't care about online since I don't play online.
