The only reason MS is funding it is to differentiate their platform from the competition. Without exclusivity there would be no game.

They can differentiate their platform with the power it has to run it better than on other consoles. They are already releasing their exclusives on PC as well. I always read about how Sony, Nintendo, and MS take a loss on their hardware because software is where the money is made. What better way to sell software then to make it available to a larger audience?

I just don't get the obsession some gamers have with game exclusivity and a false sense that it's important to selling consoles. I think MS should license their platform to other hardware manufacturers like Samsung, LG, and even Sony. Let them make Xbox compatible hardware as long as it meets the required minimum specs for their games. The hardware companies can compete with each other through other features like HD bluray players, voice assistants, and other features outside of the core gaming experience.

The best part would be the pressure this would take off of the game developers as well as remove any need to have to purchase multiple consoles. The money you spend on consoles would go where it's most important..... the people who develop the content that you enjoy on your hardware.

You had me until multiplat.

Well that's a shame. I had you until I mentioned that anyone could play the game?

Games become no fun to play when more people can play them?

I don't mind a world without exclusives.Its not about me not wanting people to play a game its about me not believing that MS would publish it as a multiplat.


All of Microsoft’s recent and future releases are multiplatform games. Why would this be any different?

No. We just know that Playground games is working on an "open world rpg". Could be Fable 4, but that's irrelevant to the topic since it doesn't matter what the game is called. It's going to be a big deal.

I'm just making some predictions/hopes/dreams/wishful thinking. It's most likely going to be something pretty damn epic though because you can't just release another open world RPG and expect it to impress anyone without being really special. We've come a long way since the last Elder Scrolls and Fable 3.

You didn't answer the question. I'll even reword it so we get rid of that scary word "multiplat".
All of Microsoft’s recent and future releases are also on PC. Why would this be any different?

They didn’t. They released games for other multiple platforms. Making those games multiplatform games.

Actually, they did. Minecraft. But that’s likely an anomaly.

It won't be mp. I'm against exclusives, but everyone knows Sony is ahead of Microsoft this gen mostly because of them (i don't like their exclusives, but they are usually AAA mainstream games, therefore popular). Everything else Xbox does better, but exclusives matter, and Phil knows it.

Be ready for a s*** ton of MS exclusives between 2018-2021.
