“As our content comes out over the next year, two years, all of our games, sort of like PC, will play up and down that family of devices,” Booty explains. “We want to make sure that if someone invests in Xbox between now and [Series X] that they feel that they made a good investment and that we’re committed to them with content.”
Oh dear. they really committed to that "no generations" thing for a while, huh? So basically the Series X (and the rumored other console) are just another round of upgrade boxes until MS feels comfortable enough with breaking away from this current gen. Will Xbox games be glorified phone apps for the time being with this strategy?
Even if the games still run amazingly, they're just going to be upscaled versions of what's available on the low-end hardware. We're not going to see those titles that justify the purchase of their possibly highest priced ever box for a while. What are you doing, MS? How long until Series X/PC become the standard baseline for Xbox games?
But, this is something that should have been expected when MS invested in new studios too late. It's not like most of them are working on AAA content, just Game Pass fluff. Did they just hand Sony another early W with this?
