@Tiz: Hopefully, but they need more than just 1 or 2 talented studios, probably 10 or so. Which I just don't see Microsoft investing that much money on it, to be honest. But I would love to be wrong. (2 minutes ago)
I can give them time. It took Guerilla 17 years and how many Killzone games before finding their feet with Horizon: ZD. (8 minutes ago)
@Sdarts: I like seeing all companies succeed, and where MS are concerned, my eyes are on them and Playground Games. (9 minutes ago)
Yeah, I was all-in on PS1 and 2 back then. But I never hated them. And now I miss what they represented to the gaming business. I will never forget that. (11 minutes ago)
@Sdarts: Dreamcast was the last time I ever fanboyed for a company, but 1st party titles were the least of their worries. (13 minutes 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. (15 minutes ago)
