I agree. It's been 623 Days Since Xbox had its last AAA Exclusive Game (Gears 5) And 5 years since Xbox had its last AAA New IP (Quantum Break) according to twitter. And seems like there won't be any for another year or two.

 

This is misleading. Xbox games are mostly online oriented. You dont need to release a new game every 6 months as that divides community.

 

Check out Gears 5, Halo 5 right now. They are constantly updated and you easily get 2-3 PS single player games worth of content.

 

Both these games now have active communities and are ton of fun online, even for casual players like me. They are following GAAS model.

How come a fact about the lack of aaa exclusive games be misleading? 

 

Also how does the prevalence of online content for certain games justify the lack of exclusive single player content for a console??

It's not misleading one bit.

Has it really been 623 Days Since Xbox had its last AAA Exclusive Game? Yes.

Has it really been 5 years since Xbox had its last AAA New IP? Yes.

There's no new AAA exclusives, definitely no new ideas, no risks being taken with new IPs. MS has really deep pockets, they can afford to take risk making new IPs, things they can call their own.

 

And please don't change the topic, I never said those 2 games you mentioned are not active. As for PS, that attempt at comparing 'updates for a game' is similar to 2-3 different games just doesn't make any sense. Even if they're active and fun, that's no reason to stop making games and rely solely on existing/third party titles.

Damn ! That’s a long time.  Doesn’t the medium count ?

Well everyone knows about the limited 1st party AAA offering ,no denying that . There is a reason they have made these acquisitions in trying to rectify the problem ,everyone knows that game development takes time and with covid the situation has worsened. So expecting miracles and game drops instantly from them doesn't make sense .
We still have halo ,horizon 5 ,stalker ,crossfire etc slated for this year and hopefully some surprises as well.


Also with GP growing a million per month without any AAA ‘s they must be doing something right . Cant imagine what will happen these games start releasing.

It's not AAA, more like AA/Indie.

Yes game development takes time, but other platforms have to deal with the same covid situation and yet Nintendo and Sony have been consistently pushing out excellent games, even risky ones like returnal. The Drought in xbox exclusive line up has been present since long before covid hit. Like you said, this seems to be changing, lots of titles coming out for Xbox, hope they turn out to be good.

 

No one is expecting or asked for an instant miracle. I responded to a fellow IVG'ians opinion with agreement and a fact, that's all. Glad you agree with it.

 

Update: I see you added the GP comment.

What is it with whataboutism?! I'm talking about one thing and GP has to be shoehorned into everything?!

GP is incredible value (especially when you consider day 1 exclusives), MS deserves absolute credit for that, been saying this since a year. But my post has nothing to do with that.

Demon Souls, Returnal, R and C, destruction all stars and Astros Playroom. 5 proper games in 7-8 months is superb, considering the times.

 

Edit: Welcome mate! I noticed your username only now!

80 percent Nintendo games are exclusives.

Sony has done decent, not spectacular. I think only Returnal is worth talking about. Rest stuff is similar to what you get when next gen starts.

 

MS also released Hivebusters, Medium etc. I don't talk about them.
