Of course it’s a big deal. That’s why Sony did it. They have no obligation to please anyone but their customers. This is the way the world works. Want to play Spider-Man in The Avengers? Buy a PS4 or PS5 and stop crying. Get over yourself. I can’t believe the amount of entitlement dropping from that post. Sony owes you nothing.

If Sony hasn’t allowed SE to put Spiderman in the game then he wouldn’t be there at all. But both SE and Sony know he will move units, which is good for both companies bottom line, and don’t kid yourself. That’s all any multimillion dollar business cares about. Sony doesn’t “care” about their customers. They please them to make more money. Judging by how this last console cycle went, and how The next one is looking, they are going to do it all over again.

I own all systems fir this very reason. Having loyalty to either Microsoft or Sony, two companies that give no shits about you, is a ridiculous. Maybe be pissed at Microsoft for not out bidding Sony on rights to Spider-Man while you’re at it. That’s an equally incredible waste of your time and energy.

 

Sony only owns the movie rights to Spider-Man and they've owned them since 1999.

 

Why the hell would a software company (Microsoft) buy movie rights?

 

Also Spider-Man was just in Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 for the Switch.

 

Maybe do a little homework before YOU waste of your time and energy typing up rants.

Anyone have a link to where you can see what part of your gift card balance will expire and what date?  I can't seem to find it anywhere.

 

I had to check from my Xbox (under payment options) to see when my balance expires.

 

When I logged into my MS account this morning my expiring balance didn't show up.

You do realize that the PS4 destroyed the Xbox One in sales this generation and part of that reason is no variety in games, right? If you wanted to play Yakuza and Final Fantasy VII you would have bought a PS4. The people that actually buy consoles for these types of games aren't going to wait years for them to finally be ported over to Xbox. Microsoft would do better to invest money in good Japanese exclusives instead of substandard first party titles that no one wants to play. Other than Halo, Gears,a and Forza I'm willing to bet most if not all of their first party games sold below 200,000.

 

The Xbox One was $100 more than the PS4 and weaker.

 

It also had the fallout of the Xbox One reveal and DRM attached to it.

 

I love Japanese developed games as much as anyone but for the vast majority they are not system sellers unless it's a Nintendo IP.

 

 

Other than Halo, Gears,a and Forza I'm willing to bet most if not all of their first party games sold below 200,000.

 

Sea of Thieves has sold over 1M copies on Steam alone.

 

I have no doubt both Ori titles surpassed 200K and Grounded is a huge hit already.

 

Ryse Son of Rome & Dead Rising 3 did as well.

Microsoft needs more Japanese exclusives for the Xbox. Final Fantasy and Yakuza are years old by the time they finally come over and irrelevant for people that own both consoles. The 360 had tons of Japanese exclusives and then Microsoft just gave up this generation.

 

No they don't.

 

They just need Japanese titles to come to Xbox period.

 

The most popular Japanese exclusives in the 360 gen were Tales of Vesperia and Blue Dragon with sales around 200K each.

 

It's not worth money hatting Japanese exclusives.

My Xbox is currently saying that I own 5 digital copies of the Toy Story 3 game... Good old Alpha Skip Ahead nonsense.

 

Same.

 

5 Toy Story 3s, 3 Meet The Robinsons, and 2 Star Wars Battlefront 2s for some reason.

Carrion was pretty fun.

 

Got lost a few times though...

I'll never understand how people are getting so excited over CGI game reveals. They literally showed nothing about the game. What's there to be excited about Avowed?

That it exists.

 

Same with Fable.

Ori Will of the Wisps launched on Game Pass.

 

By most accounts it's a great game.

 

As is The Outer Worlds, Gears 5, and Forza Horizon 4 IMO of course.

 

Those all launched of Game Pass day one.

 

If you didn't like what was shown that's cool but let's not blame Game Pass because what was shown didn't live up to your expectations.

GEMS OF WAR players, check your Xbox Live messages to see if you got a free Starter Pack 2 gift. It's predominantly traitstones with some gold, keys, and gems. It also includes 100 VIP Points.

If anyone has abandoned the game and does not plan to use theirs, I would be extremely grateful to have it, mainly for the VIP. I've logged 1440 hours into the game.

I also run a decent casual drama-free Guild for midrange players that has a few CAG members in it if anyone wants to join.

 

PM'd you mine.

Xbox Showcase is officially happening July 23rd

A bit early to confirm a date if you ask me.

 

Especially this year.

FYI for everyone cashing out their MS reward points to preorder the XSX:

 

If you split the payment of your preorder between your MS balance and a debit/credit card your balance isn't charged until the XSX ships, so basically your balance would expire.

 

If you have the full price including tax covered with your account balance then it charges immediately.

Not much will change for me if prices are raised to $69.99. I rarely buy a non-Nintendo 1st party game unless it's at least 50% off and I assume Switch games will remain $59.99.

 

Also Game Pass Ultimate and MS Rewards FTW.

It's so strange that the company fighting an uphill battle for sales has decided to wait until far after everything else is over to show what will decide their future. You already see people here becoming uinterested, and I'm sure far fewer people will watch in what is usually consider "the dead season of gaming". They also better hope that Ghost of Tsushima isn't that good, because if so, they better actually have some stuff to show or the jokes will come. What's next, theyll say that the main conference is at 8a.m./9a.m.PT? LOL. Why they didn't show their main stuff at the show in May or even have a show in June is wack.

Also, where is Kiwami 2? Werent all three supposed to be in the first half of the year? I'd expect them to eventually bring all of them over before the series X launch since Yakuza 7 is a launch title. And yes, I know the games aren't related, but it wouldn't make sense regardless if they didn't.

 

 

I'd rather Xbox take their time and put a great show together than rush out just to counter Sony's presentation.

 

When Xbox was dropping blog posts and info on the Series X Sony bided their time.
