Hypothetically speaking, if MS somehow catches up to the quality/ volume that sony has been putting out these past couple years, in the next 2-3 years. How would you feel if xbox games became truely exclusive again? In other words, do away with play anywhere and be like Sony.
While I own all systems and a pc, play anywhere really pissed me off cause it invalidated my Xbox one since ive been primarily Xbox since 360. On the other hand I can play Xbox exclusives on my pc while my friends are on xbox.......
My personal opinion is that MS NEEDS to abandon play anywhere if they want to promote Xbox. I agree with the general narrative on system wars that the exclusives define the system. The problem is that it's a lose lose situation for MS.
If they go back to traditional exclusives. They will be hailed as the epitome of anti consumer. If they keep play anywhere, they have no exclusives and will continue to get trashed like they have been the past 2-3 years.
