I thought you had a disdain for MS or am I confusing you with someone else?
I don't hate MS. I loved their hardware and games during OG Xbox and the first part of 360 era. But they went away from what i enjoyed and became more focused on shareholders and focus testing around 2010 or so, leaving investments into gaming to rot while they focused on third party deals and multimedia services and ad revenue, and kinect, with the worst of it being around the time of the Xbox reveal, which was my breaking point for bothering with Xbox consoles entirely.
They still have not gotten passed these issues.
I'd love for them to change, but as long as they don't, i won't be interested in their consoles going forward. This is why i have been advocating for things they should do to course correct, so they can give me a reason to care about their ecosystem again.
