I have to agree with them when they say that MS switched from making great games to putting their focus on GP and buying flops like Starfield, Redfall, and the latest COD , that gamers lost confidence with MS and have no choice to switch over PS5 due to its excellent console exclusives.

So much for GP saving the XB

When your most important game in Xbox history is a 7/10, this is perfectly understandable. Folks are finally seeing how far behind Microsoft truly is when it comes to game development.

They made it so xbox is redundant, so I'm sure MS isn't surprised.

Of course you will pretend like you don't care, not like you being worried would change anything. Do you know what will happen if this keep going? IF there's another system from Microsoft, don't expect it to be anywhere near of what the X was for its launch. Instead, you will get a cheap, weak system that can "handle" games like the Series S, just so Microsoft has something their games can be rented on, and the best possible performance for the price point is out of the door.

@Chutebox: exactly...even I'm doubting my Xbox purchase because it's all on pc. Regardless, Xbox is still 10x better than ps5, which is nothing but a garbage dump.

@blaznwiipspman1: I mean, if you don't have a PC, get the series x and be happy. But if you have a PC, ✌️to xbox.

Phil Spencer in the only exec on the planet that can fail on ALL fronts and still can go back and ask his company for billions more. Is Xbox just a vanity project for MS now?

Why is Digital Foundry is discussing an issue that is irrelevant to the technical side in video games?

I agree 💯 with their views. They have turned reviews into a science with no bias.

X Series X/S is in a bad shape up till this point. But PS5 despite its high sales is also not in its prime.

The most relevant part of this video is when they point out that PS5 has also lost its lusture. The exclusives games are not as amazing as in the last gens. No Ghost of Tsushima, UC, TLU, MGS, type exclusive this generation up till now.

It's a garbage console. The PS5 is the only good option between the two.

So it looks like I was right again. Turns out if you make your console irrelevant eventually people will just bite the bullet and build PC's. Sony should taje notes. Stop releasing exclusives on other platforms.

Europeans love their games. Therefore PS5 and Switch wins. There's not a single exclusive on Xbox worth playing atm. They're all bad to mediocre

Xbox has always underperformed in Europe outside the UK. While the UK has been a strong Xbox supporter, Xbox never came close to PlayStation in Mainland Europe.

I’m very concerned too… I’m more concerned at all the games coming to Xbox next year, too many games not enough time.

Hopefully PlayStation gets Wolverine next year… Otherwise I’ll be super concerned about that too.

People must have played the shit out of Spider-Man 2 by now. Hopefully it’ll keep people going until Wolverine. 😵

I mean I'd be surprised if avg european you grab from the street could tell you what the latest xbox is called.

You don't provide regional support and marketing is next to nothing, MS has to prove why people should buy xbox to play football on instead of PlayStation which europeans have been doing for the past 20+ years

Digital Foundry truly is the Michael Pachter of our time. Every fart they make gets them a thread on System Wars.

Whatever happened to actually having a point to discuss in the OP.

Now it's just "insert youtube video with agressive controversial headline" and call it a day.

Can't begin to express how disappointed I am.

I suspect it's the FIFA PS5 bundle, they love that shit, and they already like PS brand better.

PS5 sales up 143% is eating into Series X sales.
