Sony will loose on console sales. 

 

This will have snow ball effect. 

 

But MS will put most games on all platforms, as per what they are saying.

According to a Analyst from IVG your posts will get even more nonsensical and dumb in 2022.

 

 

There you go since you believe random analyst for everything.

MS isn't focusing on console sales. Pretty obvious since they spent 70 billion on something they plan to keep multi-platform.

 

Not to mention day 1 pc release for all games.

 

Console sales are officially inconsequential hence forth.

No reason why they couldn't.

 

There are obvious areas for improvement for them.

 

But they always focus on their core audience, making xbox more of a niche product while windows/ pc is more of a mainstream product for them.

There definitely will be slight shift in the paradigm with new console buyers. I have a few friends who have been waiting to get their hands on PS5 still and are now contemplating if the XSX will be a better value for money. FSP gamers will have best value for money on the XSX and players looking for story driven games will still find the PS5 the console to pick up. People like me who like to mix it up will have both consoles and get the best of both worlds

True...but that's why they widen up and went for bigger things. 

Ultimately M$ went for bigger Risks. Once you fail and lose in any aspect in life, only then you try for bigger leap, risks and in the process, evolve. Sony doesn't take much risks...they know the formula, they play safe, why would they take risks if they knew what they are doing actually working..until now.

Tell me one thing, did Sony ever produced any game that people come back again and again and play and be engaged? No, because they mostly create VERY LINEAR story based movie games that you play once and twice and get enjoyment. Do you keep playing it? Absolutely not (well, maybe Returnal and Demon's Souls are different because they are not Sony's home product, Returnal is created by Housemarqee and Demon's Souls is just complete remake of From Software's original old game made by Bluepoint games, which only recently acquired by sony).
I platinumed most of the PS exclusives in PS4 era, and there were no reason for me to go back there and play those at all. Heck, even recent PS5 exclusive R&C RiftApart was hella easy to complete fully 100% and be done with it. And after completing those games what VALUE does those games holds for you? Almost nothing to many people, I've seen people selling their copy of these games on IVG and other forums after they done with them within a week. That says it.

Where people still have Skyrim, Fallout, Cod, Overwatch, doom, forza, minecraft, halo installed in their respective systems. 


M$ wants engagement out of you. They own the franchises which people can come back over and over again to play. Even till this day people plays Fallout and Elder Scroll games all the time. 
Now they own all the engagement heavy games from Acti Blizz.

I'm just glad that I started my gaming from PC as a main platform (well I started from 8bit chinese nintendo copy before that but it's common for everyone) and then expanded to console from ps2 era. And not strictly confined in PS2 for gaming. So I can never be a sony fanboy to restrict myself of the possibility of all the platforms or gametypes. Sony exclusives are, were always entertaining...but in a 1 to 2 times or max 3 playthrough. But they were never so engaging that you keep coming back. All of those games were third party.

These games which engages you are the one that makes MONEY. And gamers happily shell out their money for it. Why do you think people still buys skyrim in different platforms... (it basically released on every platform possible, and still it releases some version every 2-3 years, and people still buy it).

I play League of Legends, Valorant. I play LOL from 2011/12 to till now even. 10 years....10 yrs im playing that game and still not bored. I've spent 45k-50K for SKINS of the Champions on that Free game in that timespan. For you it might sound stupid and waste of money and not worth it. But for me, I don't regret it because I've enjoyed my time with this game, and still enjoy with it playing. I still spend money on it, for skins.

Same for valorant, I've paid like 3-4k for that free game over the span of only 1 and half year. I enjoy the game, I keep coming back, I spend money on battlepass and gun skins I like and I keep playing it with friends. And you won't feel bad spending some money on skins for these games because you invest time with your friends by playing these, going ranked and all.
Same for Overwatch.
Once you keep playing a game and enjoy it thoroughly and keep coming back you won't mind spending money on it. Because you are still playing it and getting enjoyment.

Engagement is a key factor if you wanna make money, and keep making money from games.
