Completely agree, i buy iPhones because I prefer iOS, like I have a mac because I prefer MacOS. But I still feel like it shouldn’t be a thing. If I was a game developer who put thousands of hours into creating a world for players to enjoy and get immersed in, I’d want that game to be played by as many people as possible regardless of platform.
I just don’t like exclusives, we’re in 2020 now but you still can’t play what you want where you want with who you want, but, I do feel like that is Microsofts vision now, and that’s why I’m probably destined to stick with xbox.
Shenmue 3 is a very good counter to my argument, however, aside from that, what else have they done lately though that’s really “For the players”?
They handled the fallout and tremendous Fail that was Microsofts initial Xbox One announcement perfectly and rode the wave into stealing this generation, but apart from exclusives they’ve got nothing? I’d like to be wrong but that’s the only argument I ever see. Hell CrossPlay us only a thing in some games because they were bullied into it by Epic & Fortnite who literally left them with no choice
