@Sdarts: Dreamcast was the last time I ever fanboyed for a company, but 1st party titles were the least of their worries. (1 minute ago)
Though I still want Microsoft and Xbox to succeed. I still remember when we lost Sega. Think of the Mega Drive/Genesis, Saturn, Dreamcast. I would hate to see Xbox go away. (3 minutes ago)
@Sdarts: Not a situation I see happening with MS ever. But they are starting very slowly. Joseph Staten former front man to Bungie is very passionate about Recore. (4 minutes ago)
@Tiz: Yes, they depend a lot on PlayStation, almost entirely so. They either succeed or they die. Same with Nintendo for games. Xbox, I suspect, is like 5% of Microsoft's business. (5 minutes ago)
