How Microsoft Is Ditching the Video Game Console Wars – The New York Times

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/06/10/technology/xbox-games.html

Microsoft sees a future where gamers want software and services rather than spend hundreds on a console. Yes. This is why Sony are absolutely fucking hammering you in console sales – because you’re essentially saying “we surrender!” before the war has even begun.

Equally :

Yeeeeaas. I’m fully aware Microsoft presented it as an “entertainment device”. This, again, is why the PS4 totally destroyed the XBox One in sales – because some fucking overpaid dunce at the helm of Microsoft didn’t spot that gamers don’t actually want an “entertainment device” – they want a games console. And what you have them was a woefully underpowered gaming console with about 2 decent XBox exclusive titles.

How many XBox owners do we really think used their XBox to play their music and watch films on, and then “ooh, let me do a bit of gaming on it too now!”. How do you executive fucking clowns justify your exorbitant wages to make utterly clueless decisions like this?!

I'm a gamer. I'm a coaster. I am happy in general. We're all born by chance and we're all gonna die. That makes me no better or worse than you. Get over that fact and we'll probably get along. I comment on the Google news feed a lot. Oh, and I swear quite a lot.
