@yeknomdab: I think "originality" is given somewhat too much importance nowadays in reviewing. Perhaps because of how much stuff is coming out, reviewers are getting jaded, having to play so many damned games, but it seems to be a lot more important to reviewers than to an audience that maybe buys two games a month.

Let's be for real here.

We'll see new colors for the current system (not the controllers) released long before a new system.

November 2020 seems the most likely, yeah.

I'd love to see Sony wait until 2021, though, if only to see them respond to the inevitable mistake from Microsoft.

This is silly, no doubt about it. This should have been a $50-$60 game on PS4/Xbox One/Switch. This SCREAMS cynical attempt at capitalizing on the mini market, with all the care and attention of the PlayStation Mini.

I'm kinda surprised they weren't already there. The games division has long been a lark for the company. They've got tons of money in the bank owing to Windows and Office, and their Azure platform is also coming into its own. Xbox could crash and burn tomorrow, and it wouldn't really matter for the company at large.

@Atzenkiller: Just about. Microsoft showed their real view of BC back in the 360 era, when they didn't even try to get Xbox games working on the 360.

BC is a great thing, no doubt, but no one with a vast library of games they want to keep is going to sell them just because they might have to put their legacy systems in storage from time to time. Microsoft's sudden change of heart with crossplay and BC are only because they're so far behind, Sony can't even see them in the rear view mirror anymore.

@batusai4ever: This. Sony and Nintendo understand this. Microsoft doesn't. It's very simple, and the sales numbers we're seeing reflect this.

@Atzenkiller: Yeah, that did rather limit the X360. Though those memory cards were funny.

@shuttle_cock: The Xbox One S is being pushed down because the Xbox One brand is in freefall, let's not kid ourselves here. Can't speak to Game Pass, save that it's clearly having an adverse affect on game quality, as evidenced by State of Decay 2 and Crackdown 3. BC, I'll give MS a hearty pat on the back for the effort, but it's more of a "virtual console" approach, as each game has to be downloaded off the network instead of being installed off the disc since each game needs its own emulator.

And I'm not sure about Australia's prices, but it's no secret the Australian dollar isn't up the American dollar's strength. The PS4 Slim here is $300, with the Xbox One S being $299 with a game (unless you wanna buy that useless all-digital one that's coming out in May).

@ballashotcaller: Problem is that both systems have the same multiplayer games by and large - Fortnite, COD, Overwatch, et al. PS4 is also the exclusive home of Street Fighter V, making it the de-facto main console for Japanese fighting games, and thus the main console of the FGC online. It's not like there aren't mulitplayer-focused games on the system, no matter what the Xbots tell you. By contrast, there's very little single player experience to be had on the Xbone, and no real hope for improvement as Microsoft puts all its eggs into the live services basket.
