no great exclusise AAA to move Xbox right now.
But does that matter for casuals at this time that are still having issues getting new consoles in many places? Where COD and fornite with their local sports game is more than enough.
I think if there were more delays next year that may be an issue but I believe that the lack of production of all consoles (S to a lesser extent) and some bad moves by Sony brought MS enough time to get by this year they wouldn't otherwise have had.
I like this form of competition so much better. The timing might be bad but when financial uncertainty comes around sometimes people tighten their belts by spending on things to occupy time. I hope they succeed on this front.
The timing is perfect, bad economy, holiday guilt, here's an S gift you can buy for yourself or others for only $18 a month.
Also a good way to buy the X at full price when it's out of stock elsewhere, or for $35 a month on All Access, if the person is a Verizon customer as they hold stock for their subs.
That will be a tall order if Sony really has fixed their stock issues.
By itself sure. Combined with X this holiday? Different story.
Maybe in South America or Asia, In Europe? Not really.
