4 - The Netflix model is a black hole for money. Microsoft doesn't have the library to even attempt such a feat. Gamepass will require a HUGE userbase to be sustainable for any lengthy period of time.
Microsoft all but giving away their 1st party titles for a $10 monthly subscription isn't a good business model. The math doesn't add up. They are literally giving up their software revenue in order to make the echosystem more appealing. This has to be a move to push hardware, or it's a sign they are throwing in the towel. So why burn all this cash on the way out? I just don't get it...
Ummm, MS has been saying they wanted to support PC from the start of this gen and becoming more then just another 1st party dweller. They are like a 3rd party who makes a console to say the least. Game Pass is a smart business move and it also shows it has more benefits on PC alone. Phil Spencer is now the head of leading next-gen that is Scarlett and if you been noticing, he's buying Studio cause he's trying to be prepare for more 1st party games this time around.
But really, if you say Game Pass isn't best for business, why is MS still continuing this?
LMFAO...You're talking about the same company who tried to tell everyone that exclusive games don't matter and single player narrative driven games were dead?
You CAN'T be Fn serious with that question now?
If this generation has taught anyone anything, it's that MS doesn't have a Fn clue about what's good for business as far as GAMING is concerned.
I see you're trying to be a white knight or whatever but let me bounce your question back at you...why should anyone believe that MS knows whats best for business (in gaming) after failing on EVERYTHING they've tried to husstle gamers on with their get rich quick schemes so far this generation?
MS also believed they would sale 200 million of the $500 KINECT REQURED xbox ones this gen..
Microsoft planned to sell 200 million Xbox One consoles
Speaking to Stevivor, Spencer revealed Microsoft planned to sell at least 200 million consoles, well ahead of the PlayStation 2’s individual record of 150 million units.
“The goal that the team had was to figure out how could we sell 200 million game consoles,” Spencer explained. “We’ve never seen a console sell that many units. The biggest individual console, the PS2, did 120 million or something like that.”
Spencer revealed that but one which was ultimately felt to be the reason for its tepid reception by gamers.
“The approach the team took was people are moving to OTT Video Services [over-the-top, like Netflix and Stan] and television’s getting disrupted–and if we could build a console that could be at the center of this transition and really embrace not only people playing video games, but also people with the changing habits in television, you really take the console market and the gaming market and you expand it potentially,” he noted.
And you're sitting here suggesting MS actually knows what's best for business in gaming? 🤦 Just STOP!
They're throwing shit at walls hoping something sticks and that's it. MS is lost and clueless in the gaming world and these figures should be a sobering indication of this fact.
Do you think this is anywhere near close to even break even on Gears 5 production costs?
Let it go
You said 200 million? How about 1 billion?
God Of War 3.1 mil. copies at 60$ in 3 days >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> 3 million Gears 5 players in one week. Well, for 2$ probably.
7. Lucky number 7.
@mowgly1: SO1 was published by MS so I don't know if Sony can have that..
Published isn't the same thing as owning an IP. Sony can release a Sunset Overdrive under different name/added name or with some number
Update - Sony Interactive Entertainment has acquired the following IPs that belonged to Insomniac Games: Sunset Overdrive, Fuse, Song of the Deep, Edge of Nowhere, The Unspoken, Feral Rites, Strangelets, and their next game coming this fall, Stormland.https://t.co/ED0srR63kppic.twitter.com/6T9NNKttvP— JOAC @ Gamescom (@JackControllers) August 19, 2019
If you didn't know Scarlet will support 8k too......Because HDMI 2.1!!! Go figure!! Same crap as PS5.
Both console will have Zen 2 CPU. So, your theory that strictly PS5 - 8k, Scarlet - 60fps strictly is a dud. Why you think it will be like that?
