This affects ALL GAMERs so I thought it deserved its own thread. Any chance any of these games ever come out on PS5 now? I have to imagine Sony will do a lot to make sure they do - even including some cross gen first party games as a trade?

Instead of building communism, he now builds a precise model of this grotesque, duplicitous world.





Haven't these franchises suffered enough?

They'll still be multiplatform, MS won't ignore half a console market. (ballsy if they do)

Xbox will just get a day early release or something, early DLC or other exclusives.

Robert Trump died. All the Zenimax owners are old as gently caress and it's been time to cash out for years. They probably realised Zenimax has hit a wall in term of valuation and Microsoft was probably the first company to offer more than 2 billion.

The Year is 2028. Any PC that uses Windows now has Skyrim installed automatically. There is no way to undo this. Skyrim has reached Complete Global Saturation.

Given that Game Pass PC now specifically points out when games are moddable, and given that Halo MCC is working on mod support stuff (and given all the Minecraft stuff!), probably not.

They also went out of thier way to make sure the Xbox One version of Skyrim still had mod support, although it was pretty limited due to no SKSE but still.

This seems pretty explicitly like a bad thing and is another step in a troubling direction for the industry.

It is not good when large corporations make themselves "competitive" by simply taking away consumer choice rather than actually creating anything.

A finger closes on the monkey's paw and you now realize that the Microsoft Store will be taking over for the Bethesda launcher.

John Gonzalez, the main writer for New Vegas, has just wrapped work on Horizon 2 and is now with some startup Spanish developer. Chris Avellone is posting some rant on RPG Codex probably. So at the very least they won't be available for NV2.
