@npiet1:

Mike Ybarra used to work for Microsoft. On Xbox.

Anyway, yeah, if you have the PC for it, an Xbox is kind of pointless. Not that I think Microsoft cares; it's all about Gamepass and the Xbox platform for them these days.

@madrocketeer: Consoles are sold at a loss, so yeah I don't think they do. Xbox has literally asked to be on PlayStation and Sony said no.

@npiet1:

Yup. Software is where the money is, so they must have decided that it makes no sense to limit profitable software to loss-making hardware. Set the software platform free from the hardware, reach a larger consumer base, get more money.

Could still happen... ...sort of. Might be a reciprocal deal; PSNow on Xbox, XCloud on Playstation. They are apparently already cooperating on cloud gaming.

@xfighter:

LOL. Look the time of tweets. You think i'm all the time on twitter to see what Mike Ybarra said? Btw. my point still stands, exclusives sell systems. That's why he will buy PS5, not XSX. Because exclusives, Switch is selling like crazy.

I've said in first post : POWER OF TRUE EXCLUSIVES

@mowgly1: Your tweet is only a bit earlier than that one...

But sure exclusives sell systems, Microsoft doesn't really care about the systems though. As long as they can sell you services they are happy.

The bigger point Mike is making is the console wars don’t matter. The companies are thinking bigger. Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo are looking for ways to expand their audience across PC and mobile. Targeting you console kids is a losing strategy and is just an afterthought now

And lol, I knew “CrapGamer” was gonna be involved in that twitter thread somehow. Mikes tweet must have put some of those YouTube goons in a frenzy. Mike was their guy! Lmao

@mowgly1: exclusives do sell systems but software is where the money is. Sony has been killing it with the exclusives but, those games are limited to the PS ecosystem. These companies sell consoles at a loss to make it up with software sales, MS has taken the approach of let’s move more software and less consoles. Sucks for console wars but great for profit. If they tried to fight Sony head up with exclusives they would/have been handily beaten.

No reason to lie if he's not working at MS anymore. Just like any gamer who cares about having the best experience, he'll play MS's games on PC.

I wonder if MS themselves are even gonna bother advertising their next Xbox. Right now it feels more like "myeah, we're making a new Xbox for those who still wants one, but you should really get a PC, look at our new support for PC! Hopefully, this PC looking console will make you go PC later!"

In some segment of the market this makes sense. Its why I think its important for MS to put out the most powerful console almost as a feature. You buy xbox because its the best console hardware can do.

No wonder he left MS. LOL! But seriously though, if you have even a decent gaming PC, there's no point in investing in Xbox hardware. That's why they need to get on the ball and put b/c functionality on PC already. Same would go for the other platform holders if they put their games on PC. Consoles are just entry-level gaming machines. And that's getting stressed more and more each gen.

Yeah that's a waste of money then; as he said, he will be playing mostly on PC. PS4 had maybe one or two exclusives per year that were worthwhile, and with Sony bringing games to PC now, there are even fewer reasons to play on PS5.

Mike Ybarra, PC gamer and occasional console user. As it should be from an industry professional.

Well good for him. As for me I’d rather play my games on the Xbox consoles instead of PC so it’ll be the Xbox Series X for me on day one and a PS5 later on down the road.

Same here. My PC I build 2 years ago is stronger than the XSX, there is no point in getting it. However, I think this is a good thing. Locking games behind hardware is a shitty move. It would be much better for consumers if every game came to every plattform.

Since you don't have a PS4 currently if I remember correctly and you have an Xbone already for Halo Infinite , you should consider a PS5 first if it's b/c with PS4 because you've missed so many great games already. There's got to be at least 10+ games ready and waiting in your PlayStation backlog.. I can't imagine not being ready day 1 for Horizon Zero Dawn 2 , Spider-Man 2 , God of War 2.

Either that , or you should grab the PS4 bundle with Horizon , The Last of Us , God of War now! You've missed too many GOTY/GOTG experiences already and a plethora of other great games.MEGATON The Last of Us Part II is coming soon , and Ghost of Tsushima down the line too !

@Nike_Air: I prefer the Xbox platform personally and would rather get the Xbox One Series X first and play Halo: Infinite day one on that. There are certainly some PS games I’d like to play but I really don’t mind playing them later on down the road.

Well after this gen I really can't blame one for going to Sony. Pretty much abandoned PC at then end of last gen, but meh, I'd rather just play MS games on PC and get a PS5 and the future Nintendo console to complete it all. Too bad I'm going to have to wait till fall for the RTX 3000 series, don't know if I can.

How is what he said bad thing or jumping ship?

He is still supporting the Xbox platform and software.

He wouldn't buy a PS5 either if he didn't have to. You guys make it sound like he CHOSE PS5 rather than lack of options

"PS5. Will play Xbox exclusives on PC. Wish they were all on PC!"

If he is choosing to play Xbox exclusives on PC and only buying a PS5 for the exclusives (that he can't play on PC), he is basically saying that consoles are shit and he would go PC only if he could. I fully agree. hehe :)

It's not about money issues, it's about spending your money wisely and as such, Mike Ybarra has a PC that can play Xbox One games. PS5 & Nintendo Switch games aren't coming to PC, so you'll still need to buy those 2 consoles.

Ybarra knows purchasing an XSX would be redundant. He also knows PC is superior, the choice was easy.
