MS seems uninterested in making the X-Box anything more than a proprietary Win10 gaming machine if they don't pull out of the console market altogether, which is unfortunate because competition is good for the industry and exclusives are where you tend to find games that aren't multiplatform service-based monstrosities.

Yeah.

OTOH it would be mega rad to buy 1 console and be able to play all the games for a generation

Also MS deserves to be chased out of the game industry for loving up so bad with Don Mattrick

I'm probably going to buy that Sega collection at the end of the month, maybe 30 years from now it'll be collections where you get 50 PS4 games for your PS7

Yeah, "competition is good" doesn't really apply to videogames because publishers/devs still want to sell a bunch of games even if there is only one platform in existence.

The best way to sell games is to make good ones.

Friend, before Microsoft online services were free. Completely free. I'm not sure losing Microsoft is as bad as you think it would be.

If it wasn't for the 'alternative' we'd still have free PSN.

So yours is the most terrible of takes.

These days there's the argument that certain genres are only gonna get made at AAA funding levels as system sellers by the interested 1st parties, but MS hasn't been great at that for a while.

Aside from that console competition is just a matter of what exclusivity agreements a given PC box makes.

I'm glad Monster Prom is getting the praise it deserves. I've been holding that torch since I played the demo at PAX. Unfortunately my friends are all lame-os who don't get its humor so I'm stuck with doing single player

If this avatar wasn't still pretty new I'd get a Miranda one. Still might.

But then some of the best games came from times when there might as well have only been one console on the market.

Eh, even in the NES era, which is probably percieved as the most single platform dominated era, Nintendo was getting absolutley crushed in Europe by cheap computers and the Master System

One of the biggest losses felt by Sega leaving the hardware industry was they were the only ones that gave their consoles rad names.

The Nomad is still by far the best name for a portable game system.

Console exclusives gently caress that up. One less console gets us closer to the One True System though.
