@GreybeardMcGuff Iím one of the butt hurt, I only buy previous Xbox exclusives when they drop so cheap I canít stop myself. I do the same with Sony 3rd part exclusive, I only buy them when theyíre discounted so cheap it becomes a reflex action. 3rd party exclusivity deals are one of my gaming pet hates.

In Theory: Will there be more than one next-gen Xbox?

bladdard

10 months ago

MS are the bc kings so I see this featuring in all future Xbox's. I think the model they currently have will work perfectly for them, a new Xbox every 3 years that is at mid range gaming pc level but half the price. If Sony follow a policy every new gen of abandoning the previous PS4 gen as planned, then that will be a massive misstep and hand Microsoft a huge advantage. I don't see multiple versions of the next gen xboxes but I do think Microsoft will continue support all versions of Xbox one and continue to scale their games in much the same way as Apple does with iPhone apps. Apple have proven this is a winning formula, Microsoft seem to have got the message but Sony still seem stuck in their old ways.

@ziggy_played_guitar by lack of games I mean lack of exclusive content. Itís the exclusive content thatís a differentiating factor. Last gen I got my much loved but now rarely used 360 quite late in the cycle because the weight of great games I was missing out on was too big. Iíd love an excuse to buy a one x, it truly is an amazing console but I donít see a compelling case.

I hear very little negativity from Xbox fans this gen.

What I hear is hype, hype about gamepass, BC, even hype poorly received games and I rarely hear them complaining about a lack of games.

Xbox fans have to be the best most loyal and patient fans out there, I really hope they get something to cheer at E3.

Thereís some truth here, early last gen the 360 destroyed the PS3 and this gen has been a big switcharoo. Microsoft have gone some way to resolve the issues releasing the brilliant one x, gamepass and BC but what they really need is AAA exclusive new IP to shut up the naysayers.

@---___--- yes but none of them got a recommended on release despite the obvious potential, this got a recommended and the reviewer admits the reason was the hope that the dev would release content to justify his rating. Iím highlighting the double standard.

Using EGís logic you can review any game and give it a recommended in the hope that the developer makes it better in the future, only .... they donít do this. They didnít do this with no mans sky, drive club or even state of decay 2.

Iíve had fun with it, the atmosphere is incredible but the fun was shallow and short lived.

@mega-gazz havenít heard of the graph but I agree. The problem with Microsoft is they always thinking about the bottom line, how much the game is going to make and if itís not an instant success itís dropped like a bad smell. MS need to focus more on the platform and the library and let loss leading but good games get the dev time they need to reach their potential. I also think Rare mustíve have problems developing this because when it was released it didnít look like a game that had a 5+ years in development. I think MS lost patience, forced rare to release unfinished and will now drop it if itís not a success.

Sea of Thieves' latest update sets the stage for next week's big content expansion

bladdard

11 months ago

Content updates are ok but SoT needs a complete overhaul for me. if SoT was more like NMS is could be a great game, also if NMS was more like SoT it too could be a great game. SoT is fun, the atmosphere on deck is incredible and some encounters with other crews create unpredictable and intense gameplay experiences. If sea of thieves had a bigger world, a world full of wonder and discovery like NMS then it would for me be an essential game. Likewise if NMS had multiple manned ships and space encounters/wars with other ships that required a whole crew to work together.

I know there's plenty of time for redemption but the omens are not good for this one. The mission sounds pretty much copy/paste open world game mission template 1. Is the next generation of games going to get nuanced, complex missions that require strategy and lateral thinking instead of the standard treasure hunt quests that inhabit every game and have been around since the ark?
