so you can buy the new console in 2 years when it has games and is $100 cheaper like a normal person

In 2 years there will be maybe one next gen release worth paying for. Coronavirus might make that even worse.

Your taste in soda sucks (unless you're a mountain dew man because coke has nothing to offer against that) and your taste in fast food seems limited. Does your town just not have real fast food? Are the two lovely chains the only ones you have available? Do you have small children who won't eat fast food unless it comes in an ugly cardboard box or with an ugly cardboard crown?

On a more Xbox related note, did the rest of you know that Ascent has 4 player couch co-op? because I found that out today while browsing the official xbox pages of the games from their underwhelming games showcase, and now I'm actually a little excited about it.

I'm surprised most of Sega's 360/XBLA library is available in XB1 BC. I don't have a 360 anymore, and I didn't get either an XB1 or PS4 this gen, so getting access to my XBLA games again would be nice, especially if VF6 never happens.

They squandered so much. The Ninja Gaiden games were classics that they allowed to slip through their fingers rather than lock down (but maybe out of their control since that lead guy was a creep and got sacked), they had a solid relationship with From Software from Xbox to the early 360 days that they gave up on (and then they went and made Demon's Souls), they even had one of the best shmup developers (Cave) porting exclusively to Xbox and managed to secure an exclusive from up-and-coming Platinum Games before Sega stepped in and made Bayonetta multiplat.

They had the intuition and were forging good relationships (didn't they even get some respected talent working on JRPGs for them on 360?) with a lot of Japanese devs that didn't matter much in Japan but was definitely having an effect overseas with people who wanted those games. They also managed to get a lot of formerly Sony-exclusive third party devs to bring their franchises to Xbox (Final Fantasy, Tekken, Metal Gear Solid etc.) which was huge. Then there's the unthinkables like getting Sega to make Jet Set Radio Future and Capcom investing in the insanity that was Steel Battalion.

Maybe they assumed since they were on a roll they didn't need to do any more than that but they really should have fostered those working relationships more. I mean the Souls games own but the best game FromSoft ever made imo was Chromehounds shortly after the 360 launch and it's still one of the best online games ever made. Sucks that we'll likely never get a sequel because playing that with goons was ridiculously fun.
