Microsoft is weak AF if they don’t completely monopolize Bethesda. Sony has exclusives so Microsoft should do the same thing. And I’m a PS4 player!

To anyone who’s confused, Bethesda will not be making their IP’s we know and love exclusive to Xbox, more likely it will be a new IP you can only play on Xbox, there’s no way Fallout, Elder Scrolls, Deathloop, Doom, etc. is missing out on PS4/PS5 market

It could be another great way to raise $ for causes and give some gamers with disabilities another career path as I'm sure at times its hard to find a job with a certain disability. I have seen vids of people with a disability who would destroy me lol...anyways just a thought.

If Sony had bought Bethesda, Xbox wouldn't be getting Elder Scrolls, Doom, etc. I'm certain of that. That's the same company who started the third party exclusivity with Final Fantasy 7 decades ago, and they'd do it now. I know Microsoft wants to make gamers happy, but they spent $7.5b on those studios. They need a revenue return to validate the expenditure. Drive people to your platform. They can play the games on their phones, PCs, and even a $300 console that can be bought at $25 a month (with Game Pass included).

having more platforms to sell on will actually help them get the money spent get back quicker. Who knows they might cap the frame rate or the graphics for all the other plaforms but xbox or might make special bonuses/pluses for getting it on the xbox. in all honesty though this exclusive practice is kind of toxic in my opinion because the the consumer will be forced to get a console just for the ip's they like not because of the console/controllers with the only solution being buying both consoles which is well over 1k dollars. lets say I want to play demon souls and halo I cant do that unless i get an xbox x and ps5 which i obviously cant afford to do so, in the end i have to quite literally pick between both games but if i want to play the other i have to spend 800 dollars more? and I wont even spend a breath on how consoles these days make you spend money to play online ps+ and xbox gold should only be for the free games I mean yeah it makes them alot of money but overall If i was a customer and I heard that i could play online with my friends without having to recharge every month I would be buying that console which is what i did for the ps3 because xbox 360 introduced gold. In short i want to get the ps5 because i prefer the UI and the hardware benefits I have smaller hands so the ps5 controllers dont strain me unlike the xbox 360 does after a few hours. the exclusive i literally dont give a damn about the rest of them but pulling ES6 away really annoys me because that was one game i was looking forward to play

If they deliberately dumb down "other platforms" visual experience to make MS platform the place to play, I won't be happy as this goes against everything Phil Spencer has been touting and promoting. This would be anti consumer. Just release the damn game at the best the "platform" is able to reasonably run. Profit is profit no matter what platform they sell it on, they still get their slice! This is coming from an avid gamer of ALL the systems. I get all systems (MS, Sony & Nintendo) because I appreciate and love what each bring to the table.
Another worrying sign I don't like is if they (MS) are using the acquisition of these top tier studio's, to only then use them as a cudgel to steer or force people to get on their game pass subscription system. I have no interest in continually handing over cash, to just have access to games. I have a preference to purchase games to own, not rent. Yes, I know there are lots of people that do like Game Pass and I don't begrudge them of that, I'm just talking personal preference. I just don't want to be forced onto a subscription service to play a game that I really like. Keep choice available so people can buy to play, or rent to play.

Why in any universe would you want to play the ps4 version on ps5 when you have the ps5 version. Makes no sense to even have this as an option. It’s cool to get the ps4 version if it lets me download it on ps4 I just got the game so I’ll have to check. If not though there is no point to make it more complicated.

So basically Bethesda games will be on all platforms but the games will look better on the series X console, probably some timed exclusivity too. That’s fair, Sony been doing it for years. I’m just glad I’m going to be able to play the next Doom game on the PS5.

I don't really care about the Xbox having quasi-exclusives. I don't plan on buying a gaming PC. The XSX is essentially the middle ground between console and gaming PC.
It's simple. I play games on console and if you want to compare consoles then the more powerful system is the XSX and I'll glady enjoy playing Bethesda games which are not available on the playstation. If Fallout: New Vegas 2 releases as an Xbox quasi-exclusive then it may just be gameover for the playstation.

So pretty much they are saying it all depends on how much money they make. If they make alot of money without those titles then it probably be exclusive. If they don't and want to make more money, they probably release the game for Xbox first and withing a year to other platforms.

Nah im telling you, you don't spend that money and not make the games first party especially when you need first party games. They're just trying not to make Sony bois upset right now but what that comment means in my prospective is they aren't foing to pu existing games off the systems but i guarantee anything new going forward including new games in existing franchises will be exclusive to Xbox and PC msybe even an occasional game to Swith, pretty much just not Playstation. Guarantee you.

@TheShadowedCrow Microsoft gave up on that long ago. The last fight of the exclusives was the 360/PS3 era and in the end, despite getting hammered near the start, Playstation even won that. Ever since then the only one really pushing the amazing exclusives has been Sony while Microsoft has gone a different direction embracing more of a "pro-consumer friendly gaming hub" vibe. They want to be your best buddy and allow you to play all your games on pc, console and now even phone. They don't care about the direct hardware war. It's all about the services they provide and the ecosystem they have created. That's why every piece of marketing for Series X has been about old games and backwards compatibility while PS has been pushing Demons Souls, Miles Morales, Ratchet and Clank etc. It's a different focus. If I was to sum it up, Xbox is an amazingly priced, amazingly powerful piece of hardware that is basically a PC and a great offer for those that prefer the lounging gameplay of consoles or can't afford a high end PC while Sony is saying "we're not just a PC, here's things you can ONLY do on our console, haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, Tempest 3d audio, advanced SSD architecture, amazing exclusives you can't get anywhere else (at least not for a year or two like with Horizon)." Two different approaches.

It's a bad move from MS if they still allow Bethesda games on PS and Nintendo.
They've spent 7.5bn dollars, exclusivity would really help sell Xbox consoles and Gamepass subs, if a PS5 owner has to wait say 6 months for the next Elder Scrolls game, that's not gonna bother people all that much.
I own both consoles but Xbox needs to be a lot more ruthless if they're ever gonna take the marketshare from Sony
