Microsoft Won’t Have Its Killer App Until Next Year

Microsoft added five game studios to its branch of first-party game studios. However, this is just a façade by the company that did more than talk about all the games that its platform can play at E3 this year. Why isn’t this a good thing? Because it has been five years and Microsoft has not released a single game that has been a console seller. And this still holds true. Being an open platform is great and all, and I applaud the company for welcoming in more talented developers into the fold, but without any true exclusives, one must wonder whether or not they know when they expect to see results from the companies they partnered with. Nonetheless, Microsoft is going is to be in a prime place to overtake Sony again…next generation. With mentions of a new console (the third in five years mind you), I am starting to worry about Microsoft. Phil Spencer and company are playing the long game now with this new generation; I sincerely hope it works out.
