    Microsoft have managed to make another mess somehow, despite having great hardware!

    Surely they should be making loads of noise about launch titles by now?

    Not good at all

    This video is like a Bad Punch line to a terrible joke , a Terrorist , a Black man & a white British women walk into a BAR ….. all while GameSpot un-jokingly is Absolutely the WORST gaming new agency in the market . Now it's evidently clear just why that is

    Does it make since to upgrade to a series x right away I don’t think so it may scare off some ppl that not many AAA games are coming at launch but this is my take on it …

    Xbox has acquired 13 studios over the past few years we have seen a few things from a couple of studios so far obsidian has been hard at work pushing out nearly three games outer worlds with new dlc coming the world builder can’t think of the name right now the one in the garden and it’s actually fun excited to see more and play more also avowed but other then that right now you will be buying a powerful console to play third party games they may not look better but could potentially run at higher frames on Xbox and you are buying into the fact that these studios are all working on different games a lot could potentially be new IPS Microsoft is currently behind it terms of game exclusives but they knew they would be but allowing the studios the time to develop these games is going to pay off

    Microsoft needs to have a early access multiplayer for Halo infinite that’s free and next year you have the full game with more modes and graphic improvements

    HALO is NOT the deciding factor for XSX. There are other reasons why I will buy a XSX. I dont even care about HALO. IF HALO is the only deciding factor, then XBOX wouldnt even be making a next gen system.

    It means 2021 will be the year of Current Gen as Next Gen won't be having much to offer. If only Metroid Prime 4 could make it till the end of 2021. Hopefully Shironeko New Project will make it instead.
    Games You Should Play Before Next Gen:
    NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139…
    Granblue Fantasy: Relink
    Tales of Arise
    Scarlett Nexus
    Project Re Fantasy
    Babylon's Fall
