I get what you're saying, although I would disagree about mobile market as mobile gamers prefer different experiences to console gaming and it's highly doubtful they will be playing traditional console games.if they are relegated to a single platform that is not even covering on third of the entire market , absolutely yes they are horribly bad. Whether it's Ms or Sony or Nintendo it doesn't matter.
Ms, as you can see in the image below has changed its paradigm and, releasing simultaneously on PC, console and mobile with xcloud, can reach +/-80% of the market. The three consoles together Sony Ninty and Ms cover only 28% of the video game market and this 28% must be divided with respect to the marketshare of each console. You will understand the difference between releasing one exclusive on a console (Playstation) that reaches 15% of the market and one platform (PC + Xbox + xcloud) where 80% of the market has the opportunity to play the "exclusive" game. The first case is bad for almost the whole market, the second for a very small part of the market.
This is all besides point, my post isn't about which exclusives are good or bad for gamers in general, it was about Phil Spencer constantly lying and flip flopping. The man has lost all credibility at this point. I don't get all these Xbox fans acting like he can do no wrong, the man is the biggest liar and flip flopper in videogame industry. It does feel like he has some competition in Jim Ryan though.
