2 years ago, xbox was considered dead, and wrote of this gen. It only become big, once they got bethesda, e3 game announcement and now activision. Jan 18 2021, the sub had 18m in almost 3.5 years. That is a baby form, especially with pc+xbox.Gamepass is not in baby form, it’s over 4 years old, only 2 years ago people figure out it existed because of shady marketing and console wars…
Their main issues was the lack of developers. They had around 5 developers when Don Mattrick left them. Its why the entire generation was kinda dead, with no noticeable new IP, aside of sea of thieves. From 2018 until now, their studios count is 31+ after ACTivision deal is completed.About those e3 games… I know Xbox fans been starving for new IPs and exclusives but for the rest of us, for over 10 years MS done nothing to capture us gamers into their systems… so we will see.
We might get new IPs in this gen, with those studios working under xbox.
Nope, both have history ahead of xbox, and more developers, with consistant 3rd party partnership. Xbox didnt have those. It relied on exclusive 3rd party games, gave 3rd party developers like bethesda, and cdpr a platform to start their journey on consoles. But exclusive wise, They didnt focus on expanding their developers which hurt them during xbox one.There’s a reason why people go with Nintendo and Sony! Both aren’t perfect but they are consistently making exclusives.
If the xbox one fiasco didnt happen, Xbox would have been in better position rightnow, considering they had major exclusive with activision, bethesda and cdpr. MS could have bought those 3 during that era.
