The Elder Scrolls VI for the sexual perverts,
One Fallout for the nostalfags without gaming skills,
More Doom for the retarded Krunoes,
The Xbox game pass from the Dark Lord on his throne,
In the land of Microsoft where the shadows lie.
One Bill to rule them all, one Bill to buy them all,
One Bill to bring them all, and in the decline bind them,
In the land of Microsoft where the shadows lie.

Spencer with that Big Dick Energy.

Not sure how bad a negative this could be. For all their bullshit, Bethesda (the publisher) made more singleplayer focused games than most other companies lately. Fallout 76 and Elder Scrolls Online yes I know, but Activision ain't makin' Prey and The Old Blood and Evil Within and shit. Will Mirosoft? I dunno... they bought all these studios years ago and very little has been shown from it. Halo Infinite was supposed to be a 10 year "platform." Hard to nail down what their strat is when it comes to game genre types. Also how long until things become Game Pass exclusives? Ugh... still it could be worse, they could have sold to Sony and we'd see console exclusive Doom games *shudder*.

As for the console wars it's definitely a big dick move. Would have been more big dick if they could have announced an exclusive at the same time, or shown Starfield footage or something, but oh well.

Fixed for accuracy.

Yes MS now owns Deathlop and GhostWire: Tokyo two timed Playstation exclusives
:lol:

Playstation and PC. I really wonder how those contracts are worded though. Outer Worlds had a rock solid publishing deal in place with Private Division they couldn't get out of, but Sony merely bought an exclusivity window.

Probably one of those hasty last minute deals concluded one day before pre-orders of the XS start.

Either way, all this monopolization will simply lead to more disinterest from me for AAA games. I hope Arkane can still knock out 1-2 good games before they become submerged into the Microsoft structures.

Better MS than Sony. That said, money won't fix creative bankruptcy. On the contrary, good design requires constraints, and budget constraints work like any other. Just look at Ridley Scott, he made Alien on the budget of 11M, and given 110M he made Alien: Covenant.

Didn’t say it would be good but it might end up happening. I’m sure Sawyer is asking about it. Damn poor Avellone.

If Sawyer was on the helmet of project , at least the game's system and mechanics would be 10/10.

Btw Microsft has In-xile , Obsidian and now Bethesda. What's next? Larian ? lol
