So, what were they aiming for when they bought the other 15 or so studios these past couple of years?
what they aiming for is to stock their cabinets with quarterly releases (or more) per year at a steady pace, which then in turn added with gamepass and xplay turns u in to an xbox customer...

whether you lookin for top tier ie. series X
or a 2nd console ie. lockhart @ $250.00
or your sticking with PC and using gamepass ultimate

either way, they trying to make it real easy for you to buy into the eco system..
SONY nor NINTENDO dont have the infrastructure to compete with MS/XBOX at this level... so xbox sees amazon and google as rivels.. not small compaies like sony or nintendo

Xbox live itself is worth more than all the consoles sony sold this gen, just to put things into perspective on how huge MS is as a company

for the longest i never understood the feeling pc players feel when they look at good news like it's nothing big but damn i feel that right now.

i cant argue with anybody about this subject but all that went through my head was "oh the spiderman game from 2 years ago"

i fell asleep the one and only time i played that game but still... they only have 2 good games in the past 5 years.

Games they can put on their platform

Most of those studios died or were sold as well

MS made a hard pivot towards software

Probably because all our devices are becoming PCs anyway

Imo this isn't good for console gamers and I hope games don't become stagnant

and didnt you ask a question that u got answers for?
instead of being grateful ppl took time to answer, u mocking
like its some known fact.. cause ive only known this since their last investor call and only recently again got brought up because of the latest investor call...

but u been knew this? but asking weak questions? so why ask if u all in the know then?

What does anything you have quoted me with have to do with what I quoted? Dude made a post saying MS wasn’t in the business of buying studios, and all I did was point out all the studios they bought.

No sir, it was a sarcastic question meant to make fun of him saying buying studios was not what they were in the business of doing.

These days, hit videogames are making a billion dollars easily.

Sony gonna profit well off of this buy.
wow! wait what? a billion off a couple of video games. video games are that popular now. i remember it just been for nerds and kids.


have not played video games regliously since 2006. and last game i beat or played was karvno revenge on 2015. and finshed my nes collection beat 40 nes games from 2009 to 2015.

i figure i am going to be a video game master.

i am going to beat all the popular titles from nes to wii.

pass nes. now off to sega.

Its a good purchase by Sony. Keeps the Spider-man games and likely the character exclusive to Sony which is bothersome for anyone not on PS systems. Like, would the new Avengers game ever feature Spider-man? Maybe, but I hate that Sony could leverage the deal into further BS exclusivity w/ the character from other platforms.
