  1. I'm just going to ignore the last few pages and put up my answer to the original question. The jump to $70 just feels unnecessary when you look at the rude health the industry is in overall. The PS4 is probably the most successful console of all time when you consider both hardware and software sales. It won't keep that title for too long as the Switch is still selling brilliantly and will almost certainly reach the 100 million consoles sold landmark before the end of the year. Based on very early indicators its entirely possible the PS5 will also end up surpassing the PS4 a
  2. Unexpected news but looking at what has been said it could be a good outcome. Keeps them out of Facebooks clutches which is undoubtedly a good thing.
  3. I thought my Microsoft predictions were possibly a touch pessimistic but sadly it seems like they were more optimistic than half the predictions in here. Funnier than the other half, which is borderline tragic.
  4. I'm just going to do Microsoft predictions for now because thats what I've been seeing and hearing more about on podcasts and such. -Ubisoft and EA announce support for the Windows Store -EA Play Pro and Ubisoft+ are offered as subscriptions that work across Xcloud as well as the Windows and Xbox Stores -Starfield reveal including release date (Early 2022) -Halo Infinite demo and release date (2021) -STALKER release date (2022) -Forza Horizon 5 demo and release date (2021) -Psychonauts 2 release date (2021) -Console Flight Sim release date (2021)
  5. At this moment the whole xCloud project still feels a bit like its aimed at stopping Google and Amazon getting established more than anything. If they get to a point where MS are offering the ability to either download or stream a game for the same price Stadia are offering a streaming only option then the MS option seems a no-brainer to me.
  6. https://www.theverge.com/2021/5/2/22415712/microsoft-xbox-store-cut-epic-games-court-documents Well that'd be absolutely massive if it came to pass.
  7. Mays Stadia Pro games: Trine 4 Hotline Miami 2 Floor Kids Rumour is that a fourth game will get announced during the month.
  8. It just feels like Activision are on a different path to all the other major publishers. EA, Ubisoft etc. all have their big franchises but they also seem to be at least trying to find their next big thing. Activision's focus seems to be getting narrower and narrower each year but it's working for them.
  9. I think it could easily be a repeat of the Days Gone-Last of Us 2 situation where the games shared enough in terms of setting that people ended up viewing Days Gone as a bit of a stopgap on the road to Last of Us 2. They were very different games but sticking them in the same showcases didn't help the new game. I think Sony, Nintendo and now MS all have enough different games in the works that they don't need to show stuff that's more than 18 months away. Knowing that The Initiative are working on Perfect Dark is neat but what was the value in another CG trailer? Let E3 be
  10. I don't think we're going to see anything about ES6 until after Avowed comes out.
  11. I'm not expecting a ton of MEGATONS this year but I think it'll be an enjoyably news heavy couple of days as companies start to get back on track after their schedules were turned upside down by the pandemic. We have a (provisional) date for Deathloop but beyond that it isn't very clear whats coming out when in the second half of the year.
  12. https://www.windowscentral.com/io-interactive-may-be-working-xbox-exclusive-fantasy-rpg Wahey, Dragons!
  13. If they were starting from scratch I could see the value in that approach but I don't think its a realistic option now. At the very least any new XBox store would be tied to your Microsoft account and need to give you access to games you already own so it'd be tied to the existing store in some way. Does it make sense to put resources into building a new store or into improving the one you already have people using? Theres supposed to be an overhaul of the store coming this year, possibly before August with a whole pile of changes. I wouldn't be surprised if we see EA and Ubisoft
