There are too many choices in your poll. You should limit the number of choices to a small number that are the most concern.

Online DRM + a dig on used games + cancellations + weak 1st party output.

I hope MS does better this time around and I think they will.

Hey, I went with the reason being closing down Lionhead studios. Maybe it doesn't do a bad thing as often as the DLC stuff might do, Fable and Lionhead on Xbox pretty much sold well. To keep on topic here, I think the core analyzing Microsoft does on its console does something well for games in general.

One thing, potentially about Xbox game consoles that makes sense to me is who's marketing the games remains as someone new. Closing Lionhead probably won't be huge, but that extra familiarity along with the console can be an excellent resource while new consoles are coming out.

Having a pathological liar running their brand who spends more time slurping Sony and Nintendo than making sure his own studios can hit deadlines.

I guess with @ProtossRushX: being owed in multiple consecutive threads means that we're going to get even more threads today. Good thing he's not a Lem otherwise he might end up banned.

I think they never fully recovered from the negative backlash of the E3 reveal of the XB1. Also they coasted for most of the second half of the 360's life span on Halo, Gears and Forza.... where as Sony did a good job of supporting the PS3 til PS4's launch, now Halo and Gears don't hold the same weight they once did.

Also alot of their big games have been flops or gotten off to rough starts ( cough Master Chief collection)

Really? Why is this the Xbot go to when they damage control this game being cancelled. What, about this game looked less appealing than Crackdown 3, for example?

Just go review all the negative comments about the game on it's last showing. Oh wait, I'm certain many of those comments came from you. lol :P

It's the games, you can only rely on Halo, Gears, and Forza for so long

And the new offerings this gen have been really average at best, Like Sea of Thieves, I mean I understand Sea of Thieves is a better game now, but first impressions are everything, and being bad at launch can damage the game immensely. Which is probably why MS delayed Halo Infinite.

The Xbox One is what is killing MS. This generation was a dud for MS. They shed development talent and got complacent, they had nothing in the oven and if they did they held it back for Series X. They didn't do anything for loyal Xbox One owners. They put out Crackdown 3 (which reminds me, "Power of Teh Cloud" isn't on your list). When they snatched up studios near the end of this gen it really looked desperate.

I bought all the major consoles every generation and this is the first time I regret buying one. If you owned all the other platforms there was no reason to have an Xbox One this gen. And now they're telling you ahead of time it's going to be like that for the next gen. I have no motivation to get anything from the Series series so far.

Honestly I really started appreciating Microsoft a lot more this gen. Once you grow up a lil and stop worrying about brand hardware sales... you realize they have a lot to offer gamers across the spectrum. Bringing their games and service to most platforms is a pro consumer move and really should be celebrated. Hopefully Nintendo and Sony will follow suit or offer something similar.

They have done good things clearing up the mess after launch and put themselves in a better position but we won't see the effects with games for at least 2 years. They will always be behind the black ball until the 1st party produce bangers.

Oh absolutely. Same here, How to Train your Dragon, was what had me pumped and on paper ScaleBound sounded awesome but like I said, every showing the game looked to be circling the drain and it was best for MS just to pull the plug.

My understanding is MS owns the Scalebound IP so maybe one of their new devs may get a shot at making the game.

Hope so. :D
