So that's a 'no' then .
Well, technically Bethesda is bought by Microsoft as a whole and not independently by Xbox Division. MS could "gift" Bethesda to Xbox Division if they wanted to, but so far keeping it separate makes sense.It’s curious how they are keeping Bathesda as a seperate entity to Xbox game studios. Or am I misinformed?
Not saying it's a bad game but I was talking about sales. That article even states:Last weekend, head of Polyphony Digital confirmed in an interview that Gran Turismo Sport has 9.5 million users. It is great news for the studio as theywww.keengamer.com
^ 4, can only imagine the number now.
The past few months have been quite eventful for Playground Games. Not only did Phil Spencer announce that the team was joining Microsoft Studios, but the reveal of the new Forza Horizon 4 blew gamers away.www.google.com.au
Horizon 3 ^ even doing over 10 million.
GTSport is a great racing exclusive, but Horizon caters to the casuals and is the racing king of this decade in sales.
Keep in mind that this is a player count and shouldn't be equated to sales figures.
I love X-Box for their FPS and KOTOR.You forgot Fallout. The only titles I care about that Xbox has now are Bethesda ones. No interest in the rest. When Fallout 5 and the new Elder Scrolls come out, if they remain exclusive, I’ll buy an Xbox for the first time in my life.
More traditional than what? Do you realize that jrpg games were inspired by already existing RPG games like Wizardy and Ultima? WRPG games are much older than jRPG games, even first person RPG games are older.However I think Sony and Nintendo will be seen as the more traditional RPG consoles still..

Do you realize that original Final Fantasy was closer to "traditional" RPG games like Ultima than to modern jRPG games?
Huh? The current interpretation of RPG would fit more along the lines of Dragonquest? Thats new to meAnd those too were inspired by the likes of tabletop RPGs like Dungeons and Dragons, which itself took inspiration from fantasy novels like Lord of the Rings etc...
yes I am aware...you are correct
but I am referring to the current interpretation of RPG which would fit more along the lines of Dragonquest, the Tales series and yes Final Fantasy...
I love me KOTOR or an Elderscrolls etc, but most wouldn't put them in the same category, even if at times they have MORE customization and statistical variables then those previously mentioned
Kind of like how COD is now considered a "traditional" FPS, despite a game like 06 Doom being MUCH more accurate...
We old gamers are becoming dinosaurs
And even Bioware will have their games on Gamepass within a year of release or so (ME: Andromeda came to EA Play seven months after release). WRPG fans are feasting on Xbox.The sheer amount of WRPG talent Microsoft amassed with InXile, Bethesda & Obsidian entertainment is basically the very foundation of the WRPG genre, missing Bioware (RIP).
They're definitely OP for WRPGs, and to me, it's the best kind.
And now they don't have to scrape money together through kickstarters to realize their vision. Bring it on.
When someone says something like this, I wonder if they actually believe it or if they just feel obligated to say it as a PlayStation fanboy.Final Fantasy 16 is exclusive to Playstation. At least timed. That's a bigger deal to me than anything Xbox potentially has.
Zenimax is the first publisher that Microsoft has purchased. All the other acquisitions were individual studios. Matt Booty already has his hands full managing the 15 Xbox Games studios, and they didn't want to add to it. So let Pete Hines (or whoever has that responsibility) continue to manage all the Zenimax studios. Their generally philosophy is to make as few changes as possible to the studios they acquire. I expect they will treat their next publisher purchase similarly.It’s curious how they are keeping Bathesda as a seperate entity to Xbox game studios. Or am I misinformed?
