Gamers are a mistake.

I find it odd that Xbox fans are so excited about a massive corporation buying up/consolidating studios. The same people that say competition is good and everyone should be able to play the games they want, where they want.

You are talking about a player in the console space (Microsoft) with the worst track record of managing studios and developing content. (Microsoft couldn't keep their prize jewel Bungie happy and they were only managing ~5 studios at the time, what do you think will happen when they are managing 50 — organization and structure are real things and they don't develop overnight, even with the simplest of structures) And it's all because you want to add to your bulleted list of console warz talking points that you ignore what a major consolidation of studios would mean for the very hobby that you profess to be so passionate about.

Let's get the popcorn! Extra salt for me please. :messenger_beaming:

i'm not a fan of xbox buying too much studios but at same time why assume MS back then is the current MS ?
imo MS is not more evil than the competition.
It has less to do with MS back then vs. MS now but I can't fathom how a MS now (who continues to struggle with developing best in class content - Sea of Thieves, Crackdown, Battletoads, Halo Infinite) will be able to effectively support these new acquisitions when the number of studios with their complexities have effectively doubled.

an argument i will agree with in 2 years if it doesn't change but not now.

Okay, who put that (didn't happen)in the tittle. It kind of ruins it if you can't confuse/trick unsuspecting readers that stumble in.
