THE GTA6 trailer just looks like a RDR2 skin with some improvements.

I mean I'm psyched but it's not that ground breaking.

RDR2 was a GTA5 skin with some improvements, and I love it despite all that.

I hope it's just as much fun, I don't care too much about ground breaking.

Indiana Jones looks alright, though somewhat unoriginal. Good fan service.

Avowed continues to underwhelm me - hopefully the actual game will turn out better than it's promo materials.

Haven't heard of Ara before - looks like a solid Civ-like.

Microsoft plans Starfield launch for PlayStation 5
Microsoft weighs launching Indiana Jones on the PS5

https://xboxera.com/2024/02/04/exclusiv ... station-5/
https://www.eurogamer.net/microsoft-mul ... -5-reports

Jez Corden: Microsoft unhappy with how much money current strategy is expected to make. Jez expects Starfield to come to PlayStation eventually, and has heard both ‘some’ and ‘all’ Xbox games to go multiplatform, from different sources
Jeff Grubb - Microsoft is considering bringing Gears of War to PS5
Next Halo Title Might Get Released On All Platforms
@Shpeshal_Nick on Xbox multiplat rumors: Sadly, Starfield isn't where the plans end. Reckon you'll probably see Hellblade II as well

Timdog on why Xbox is going third-party (self.GamingLeaksAndRumours)
twitter.com/IdleSloth84_/status/1754361009215541532

Tim has heard that Call of Duty may not be coming to game pass.
Hardware sales have not met the projected sales and the CFO got spooked.
In the last three months of last year, they had consoles for $350 and no one cared.
Xbox One was more wanted than Series consoles.
They said the hardware is dead, and they are seeing declines in hardware year over year.
Game pass is unsustainable; the market they have is not enough to offset the cost.
Tim heard from someone at Microsoft that you may not like Xbox when they get Activision. They want ROI.
He heard that Xbox has an insane showcase with tons of games, but everyone is going to be saying asterisks.
The leaks happened because a Microsoft employee who didn't want this to happen leaked it, so there would be a public outcry.
Microsoft now has no problem buying more companies in the future if all games go to all platforms.
Tim thinks they will go all-digital, with ads on game pass (pre-roll or at the end of a chapter e.g. Like a Dragon) and AI community managers.

That MS are moving to an all digital future is no real shock or surprise. The moves they've been making have suggested they want to be a gaming service provider rather than a hardware manufacturer for some time.

An ad supported tier in Games Pass would be no real surprise. In fact I'm surprised there isn't already one (though this is somewhat contingent on games being built in such a way that supports it). So long as they keep an ad-free variant that's not unreasonably priced it won't bother me greatly

It's worth noting the considerable cost of living pressure in many countries in the last 3 months of 2023, so I don't think there's too much to be read into slow sales then.

All that said, the golden age of gaming console hardware is pretty much over in my opinion, though cloud gaming isn't really an option for everyone yet.
