People seemed to know how it was gonna play out before the consoles even launched.
But now it is too early. Got it!
Indeed eh? Microsoft knew how it was going to play out the second they went through their marketing materials in print to rephrase their pitch to "The most powerful Xbox ever" "Our most powerful Xbox" . MS got devs with PS5 dev kits now - and a multitude of ways of getting intel on the competition. MS knows damn well. Just like the tools narrative... somehow one of the best software companies in the world with hundreds and hundreds of programmers, releasing hardware in 2020, isn't going to have the best tooling possible at the most crucial moment of the console, its launch? Like... everyone at MS, all those bright engineers and minds suddenly become incompetent and unaware of the situation.... all of that in order to fit a fanboy narrative and PR narrative to downplay their marketing BS prior to launch. Now "press" personalities that parroted MS marketing verbatim without a single ounce of skepticism play along with the new narrative to downplay the fact. Ohh and lets ignore devs who say they're happy with the "tools™". GTFO.
