Poll With MS buying bethesda etc, there is no reason why it should come in 2nd or 3rd place next gen? (22 votes)

Yes, there is no excuse for it not to come in 1st place 9%
No, PS5 will still outsell the XBSEX regardless what MS is touting. 91%

MS has been touting supposedly awesome game services and buying up a bunch of game studios that there is no reason why it should come in second place or 3rd for that matter.

This is a company that killed Rare and turned Halo into a meme. They'll find a way to finish last again.

The PlayStation brand loyalty is just as big as Nintendo's. Sony would have to screw up really badly for Xbox to get ahead.

So they will finish first because they bought a dev that makes games nobody cares about anymore? Fallout and Elderscrolls are past their expiration date.

I'm assuming you're talking console sales. Considering MS makes their games all available PC day 1, If Xbox sales are even close to PS5's it would be a massive collapse for the PS brand.

Well considering that Microsoft also put their games on PC I would imagine that the PS5 will still outsell the Xbox Series consoles.

That's pretty much what I said... It would take a massive collapse for Xbox console sales to catch PS, Quack.

Bethesda has gone downhill with fallout 76 and all. Will ES6 exclusive really change things?

If MS needs a developer that won't factor the XB1 into things when designing a game then it needs to be for the next Elder Scrolls games.

I think the polls speak for themselves. The OG Xbox had Morrowind and Doom 3 and it still got crushed by the PS2. Sony knows what to do when it's crunch time.

@narlymech: Even Nintendo has dropped duds from time to time.

Yeah, Fallout 76 sucked but it's one game and someone could even argue it's more of a spin-off to the main line single player Fallout games.

Elder Scrolls VI or Starfield are likely gonna be better received

It will be filled with micro transactions to make up the development cost. ES games cost more than a 100 million, they cannot just put it on GS in their current size and scope for nothing.

Actually, hope it does go exclusive to Xbox, love to see it turn to shit.

Win. LMAO.

Freaks and their attachment to companies and plastic boxes.

What about we the consumers? Exclusives suck for consumers. Consolidation sucks for consumers. $70 games suck for consumers. Overpriced rehash and remakes suck for consumers. Paid online sucks for consumers.

I don't want any of these companies to 'win', whatever the hell that is supposed to mean. The best we can hope for is real 3 way competition that keeps these companies from bleeding us dry.

Fallout 76 may have been a dude but I guarantee that when Bethesda show off a proper Fallout game, Elder Scrolls VI, and probably Star Field as well gamers are going frothing at the mouth for those games.

At this rate, longer. Very little has been shown, which to me means we're looking at 2+ years before their first party stuff starts hitting.
