With them clearly promoting cloud gaming, there is no incentive for Microsoft to sell you hardware at a loss.

 

There's not even an incentive for them to have tight profit margins, either.  It wouldn't surprise me if they simply go with an "Elite" version from the very beginning, and just charge $600.

 

Can't afford native hardware? Well, then stream Xbox games, here's a $100 small streaming box with a controller.

The problem with the streaming "solution" is that it looks like it's going to be based on Xbox One S hardware.

How does these games also being on PC in any way affect you as a console gamer? 

 

That's completely rhetorical by the way, it doesn't. You're weird.

not this shit again :D


This is just embarassing at this point. Xbox is fucking useless and the laughing stock status as a piece of shit with no exclusives is literally the #1 reason nobody wants one.

 

if they keep this up I don't even want to hear about xbox next gen, they aren't even worth discussing anymore. just a bad memory :D

-completely devalues my $500 purchase

 

-makes me feel like a moron for playing on an exclusivesless piece of shit, while there are competitors who offer real exclusives directly competing against xflop

 

-all games are running better on PC's, i'm paying for worse versions

 

-no community, nothing to be a fan of when all your games are whored out across multiple platforms, the community is split and divided

 

-lack of being taken seriously as a platform

 

-less and less people will buy Xboxes (You'd have to be retarded to pick no exclusives VS PS4's exclusives)

 

-PC gamers are fuckwads and don't have Xbox's best interest in mind

 

- It makes Xbox look like a budget retard console embarassment with no exclusive games

 

 

I could go on, but TLDR is i'm never buying an Xbox ever again.

  • No it doesn't
  • In your dumbo idiot head
  • That has no bearing on how the game would run on console to begin with
  • The community is not split, it's unified, nothing changed in the community
  • Again, in your dumb head
  • They're giving Xbox money, that's in Xbox's best interest
  • For a third time this is in your head

You're a grade A fucking moron.

Hardware won't be their main focus, they'll have something not to lose their existing hardware base users, but won't care to compete with Sony on the hardware sales front.

Streaming crowd obviously has rock bottom standards, doesn't even matter.
