Deathloop, Ghostwire and Doom PSVR are not coming to Xbox so your second statement would literally be a lie."MS doesn't need to recover the acquisition costs"
"MS does not need PlayStation sales"
"MS is playing the long game"
Yet the same people can't explain why MS said that only "some new future games" will be Xbox/PC exclusives and why they haven't said that all Bethesda games will be 100% exclusives to Xbox/PC, now that there is no more legal binding post acquisition. lol
Of course they could say something like, "bethesda games will be 100% exclusives to Xbox/PC*"
*except for Deathloop, Ghostwire, Doom PSVR.."
Doesn't quite roll off the tongue so easily right?
I'm sure they could have found some phrase that would have satisfied you but they didn't. Now anyone can take their own guess as to why they didn't. I still stand by my prediction that they will be slowly integrated to XGS. That means some of the games in their current pipeline will not be exclusive.
MMO type games, remasters and ongoing contracts = multiplat
Anything new = exclusive
I think its also just as likely that everything will be exclusive. Disney is pretty successful with that model. Don't see why Microsoft wouldn't at the very least try.
