The Xbox Series Is A Failure Via Forbes
 

 
Today, the contents of a pre-recorded E3 Xbox panel came to light as we heard from Microsoft execs on their plans for what is now effectively known as the “Xbox ecosystem,” something that expands beyond traditional consoles, and blends them with Game Pass accessibility and game streaming.

The highlights? That would be Microsoft talking about how they’re already working on the next Xbox consoles. Here’s VP Liz Hamren:

“…no one should think we’re slowing down on our core console engineering. In fact, we’re accelerating it. We’re already hard at work on new hardware and platforms, some of which won’t come to light for years.”

It’s not clear whether this is a “mid-gen” upgrade like the Xbox One X, or the next true generation, though such distinctions may be getting more and more blurry regardless.

Past that, onto Game Pass accessibility via smart TVs:

We’re working with global TV manufacturers to embed the Game Pass experience directly into internet-connected TVs, so all you’ll need to play is a controller.”

And to further boost this new game streaming-centric future, Xbox will also be building dedicated devices just for that purpose, ones which will cost far less than a traditional Xbox at $300-500, no doubt:

“Beyond that, we’re also developing stand-alone streaming devices that you can plug into a TV or monitor, so if you have a strong internet connection you can stream your Xbox experience.”

All of this resulted in the release of the graphic you can see below, showing the entire ecosystem in action, a blend of hardware and compatibility with devices that can stream Game Pass titles.

This kind of set-up makes Microsoft stand alone in the industry. Google Stadia is struggling with its lack of a core console or any exclusive games. Sony has the console market locked down, but has no real answer to either Game Pass or Microsoft’s pending onslaught of persistent streaming options. Nintendo…well Nintendo is as ever, on its own island selling a trillion Switches. Which is fine.

But it does show what a unique position Microsoft has put itself in, leveraging all its access to tech to create a gaming ecosystem unlike anything else in the market. Granted, it will still take years for all this to fully materialize, including Microsoft’s first party roster of games slowly coming to life, but you can see the master plan here. And I think its rivals should be scared of it.

Everyone is doing their own thing. MS has to prove their strategy is going to work though. I think it will without a doubt but it won't be fully seen until late in the generation.

Just a clickbait thread

He didn't even include a link to the article, and the article wasn't even a negative - it actually said Microsofts competitors should be afraid of what they've been cooking

The market will dictate that, but I’m sure that’s what they are hoping for.

Microsoft just sees gaming as the next movie industry and is gonna try to own as much of it as possible like Disney


When internet speed catches up to Microsofts vision the industry is going to have some problems

I've had it about a year or so and I'm still amazed by the value.
They really do stay with something new, and with EA Play it's not farfetched that you could have an XSX and never buy an actual game.

Microsoft's investment into the PC ecosystem in this regard was the smartest thing they have done in about a decade.

Xbox is not for grown ppl. It's for children. And Microsoft could compete if they really wanted too. After 3 straight rings of death I siad never again. Not to mention all the gimmicks.

LOL I went to a friend's house for the 1st time and turned on his system and sure enough 3 rings of death.

That's what I don't understand about Microsoft. They are trying to build the perfect PC in a sandbox environment for a low price. Pre built pcs, if gpu drop, would rival and beat out that model. Seem like their strategy will be to drop the console and go full on streaming service like netflix

Long live competition that’s all I care about.

When either one of these companies get c*cky we get

-Always on online from Xbox One(Microsoft)
-A $600 PS3(Sony)
-The WiiU(Nintendo)

Whatever move Microsoft makes or Sony makes or Nintendo makes I hope each one comes with a counter move.

Hating on what though? These next gen consoles are clearly scams. I said that months ago on here, as well as telling y'all these sh*ts are more "mid-life upgraded". It's blatant as day. There is no innovation so far and none in the foreseeable future with these consoles. I have a PS5 and disappointed is an understatement. The most innovative thing this gen so far is xCloud and even that is just PSNOW on steroids...
