Oh god, Bethesda. It's ALL on you now. Xbox is coasting on fumes. Indies, PC hand-me-downs and multiplats that MS is expecting to be deleted from your Playstation I guess. 不不不

  • Adios
  • The Artful Escape
  • The Ascent
  • The Big Con
  • CrossfireX
  • Dead Static Drive
  • Echo Generation
  • ExoMecha
  • Exo One
  • The Gunk
  • Halo Infinite
  • The Last Stop
  • Lake
  • Little Witch in the Woods
  • The Medium
  • Microsoft Flight Simulator
  • Psychonauts 2 (also on PS, Xbox version on Game Pass)
  • RPG Time
  • Sable
  • Scorn
  • She Dreams Elsewhere
  • Shredders
  • Song of Iron
  • Tunic
  • Twelve Minutes
  • Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer's Legacy
  • Warhammer 40K: Darktide
  • Way to the Woods
  • The Wild at Heart
  • The Yakuza Remastered Collection (MS PR is high on crack now)

https://news.xbox.com/en-us/2021/01/15/2021-xbox-exclusive-games/

I still wouldn't count on Halo this year and Flight Simulator is best played on PC. This is a sad lineup of games for a box that still needs some kind of AAA first party release to justify its existence. Everybody thought they were getting a deal on those $1 Game Pass subs. Looks more like MS is just stalling for time with fluff until everyone is paying full price. 不

The Yakuza collection is already on PS4 lol. Craiglo Infinite looks like ass. Literally haven't heard of the rest of the list. I'm assuming it's all indie crap.

LOL! Their words, right in the link. They are STRETCHING the definition of exclusive in some cases, and just lying in others.

Looks pretty shit to me...but that was expected.

MS was pretty straight forward with what to expect and the xbox owners seem content with that... so whatever.

Isnt Forza Horizon 5 supposedly coming out this year? Anyway Im pretty hyped for that Halo: Infinite, Microsoft Flight Simulator, and The Yakuza Remastered Collection. Kind of taking a wait and see approach to The Medium, Scorn, and Psychonaughts 2. Yeah its going to take a bit of time for things to really ramp up but when they do the games should be coming fast and furious with all the developers and IPs that they have now. Regardless Ill be more then happy to spend my time with a vast array of multi platform games until then. Im going to have more games then Ill have time to play anyway so Im certainly not going to complain.

It's a good thing all of those sad and pathetic MS games are all coming to the GP which I'll be playing on PC. Thank you, MS so I won't have to buy your pathetic consoles ever again.

  • Halo: Infinite
  • The Medium
  • The Gunk
  • Starfield

Those are MS games I'm way more interested in than the rest of that list.

Aside from the very poor list of "exclusives", surprised Little Witch in the Woods is exclusive on Xbox. Last we heard was the dev is doing extra works to make sure it comes to PS4 and N. Switch alongside PC release.

My theory is right, devs develops for other platforms while waiting for microsoft to come with money and techs to make it a gamepass game. Free money and word of mouth marketing before it actually came to the intended platforms in this case PS and Nintendo.

Its becoming pretty clear why Microsoft produced so few Series X/S consoles. From the numbers we have, sure the Xbox consoles are selling out, but theyre also being outsold by a 3to1 margin.

The Xbox has literally never cared about exclusives. Halo 1 was a PC game too. You'd think you'd be used to it by now XD

For some titles, it's better to put "MS's" at the beginning.

  • Adios
  • The Big Con
  • Dead Static Drive
  • The Gunk
  • The Last Stop
  • Scorn
  • Shredders
  • Way to the Woods

That list looks as garbage and unexciting as the PS5 list. Honestly, I am not sure what PS or Xbox fans are constantly fighting about. It's all pretty terrible. If Playstation came out with a new Spyro game, or a new Twisted Metal, It may pique my interest. Or you know, if Microsoft did anything positive with Rare. But, for Christ's sake both consoles have been spiraling down the shitter in terms of exclusives since the early-mid 2000's. That is why they put so much emphasis on hardware and graphics, and fight over who does multiplats better, to hide the fact they have little actual substance in software of their own.

The list has a few games that should be very good.. some that will be ok ...and some that will be meh. Looking at PS5's exclusive list I see the same mixture

Probably more Xboxes in actual gamers hands than PS, way less demand is obviously true. However, they may not need that many games if all the playstations constantly end up in scalpers hands.

That's a cool list. Another killer year for Gamepass no doubt. That's the good part of cows being completely obsessed with Xbox, they even make lists promoting it.

Thanks for the hard work! Some titles like The Artful Escape I wasn't aware they were day one on Gamepass and that's great to know. Disappointing that Stalker isn't listed for 2021.

It even says in their write-up on the Yakuza games...

"These ones arent technically exclusive, but its the first time these games are coming to Xbox and Xbox Game Pass, so were pretty excited. The Yakuza games have been making a big splash on Xbox recently, especially once the most recent titles hit Xbox Game Pass last year, and the critically acclaimed Yakuza Like a Dragon launched alongside Xbox Series X|S. Later this month, The Yakuza Remastered Collection, which gathers Yakuza 3, Yakuza 4, and Yakuza 5 will land on Xbox Game Pass. Then, in March, Yakuza 6: The Song of Life will be added to the service, completing the Kazuma Kiryu story arc of the Yakuza saga. This means that fans will finally be able to play the entire saga of The Dragon of Dojima, from Yakuza 0 to Yakuza 6, with one Xbox Game Pass subscription!"

...doesn't seem like they are trying to pass this off as exclusive.

Those are MS games I'm way more interested in than the rest of that list.

Sometimes I feel that way. I felt super burned by Xbox One with the lack of exclusives (really liked quantum break, sunset od, halo 5). Glad I'm not PC hesitant.

Somebody missed the part where Sony announced delays to 2022 for everything except ratchet and clank. As for the other games exclusive to PS5 in 2021...they make xsxs list look positively first class.

Well Phil did say the x-series x launch game lineup was the best lineup in xbox history. Except original xbox launched with halo 1 and yeah....

So i guess this is the best launch window lineup in xbox history according to phil too?
