groovy, funky microsoft being groovy and funky and hey kids we're groovy and funky

also, xbox one was a complete failure. like, a MASSIVE failure for microsoft. if it had sold as well as the ps4, i guarantee they wouldn't be doing this

ms and nintendo just saw an opportunity for mutual benefit
every western tech company wants to do game streaming first lol

saying ms and nintendo are not competitors is dangerous though i think ... they definitely are
red chamber dream
i think it'll all come down to who can buy the most/best studios

right now sony and nintendo are way ahead of ms on that front, but ms has been bulking up lately soo idk
nintendo's IP is still far more valuable
red chamber dream
yeah, i'm the least worried about them. no one else has anything even remotely close

not even master chief or idk, kratos? maybe nathan drake? come close to being as recognizable as even, say, kirby
certainly not internationally
I'm still amazed sonic is so widely known actually

that little fucker hasn't been relevant in 25 years

I mean Nintendo's just kind of gone off and done its own thing since the Wii, Switch is a handheld when you get down to it. Switches selling doesn't really hurt MS in the way PS4s might, even less if those Switches are playing Micrsoft's games.

I'm sure they'll yank it back sooner or later and they'll try to make Windows Store A Thing on PC again because they are very stupid, but it's funny to watch them act like they've almost learned something for the umpteenth time.
I actually think nintendo's strategy of making underpowered consoles has been pretty smart, you don't have to bother competing with the big boys and you can essentially manufacture your own market just by building a significantly cheaper machine than everyone else
they've just not been great at courting third party developers
One shall stand, one shall ball.
The downside of the less powerful console, I guess, is developers can't port their new games over as easily, which I can only imagine is a turn off. Not that Nintendo was particularly good at the whole third party thing before the Wii and such. Didn't they piss a bunch of them off in the SNES era?
they definitely pissed sony off
everyone saw this right?

turned up in a box in someone's fucking attic
red chamber dream
i did yeah, it was fascinating to finally see it

tbob i think it's more that all the companies are competing for the total time people play games. switch is the only popular handheld right now, but google's thing is going to work on mobile, as will microsoft's xcloud thing... handheld isn't going to be a differentiator in 10 years

I used to think that, but looking at it now that makes no sense because third party devs happily developed for x360 and ps3. they may have roughly equal power but the processor architecture of the ps3 is completely different.
nope dj, never saw it. until just now. hard to believe that happened lol
yeah, I mean the fact that it existed as a concept has been well known for a long time, but I don't think anyone realised there was actually a prototype out there

I remember a lot of devs being annoyed with the PS3 but the Wii literally couldn't run their games, which the PS3 could despite being a pain in the dick.
