Microsoft Exec: ‘It’s Almost Impossible To Become Stale Because Our Consumers Don’t Get Stale’

Skating to where the puck is, not to where it will be.

Posted By | On 29th, Dec. 2016 Under News | Follow This Author @Pramath1605


The question of keeping things fresh is doubtless one that haunts the executives at every major company- see, if you lose the ability to surprise the customer, you risk becoming stale. And if you become stale, if the customer knows exactly what to expect from you, you risk losing the customer- they can become disenchanted and move on to other pastures.

Given that Microsoft’s Xbox division has been comprised of the same few people for so long, how do they ensure that they’re not getting stale? Surely for Microsoft Game Studios, who are responsible for Xbox’s first party lineup, and who have long been fighting against the company’s output being reduced to a Forza/Gears/Halo cycle, understand this. So how do they ensure that they don’t get stale? How do they ensure that they retain the ability to surprise the customer?

“We do bring new people into our leadership team pretty regularly,” Shannon Loftis of Microsoft Game Studios told GamesRadar. “For example, Dave McCarthy is someone who only joined us a few years ago, and he brought a great, fresh perspective. We got to work with Kudo Tsunoda for a few years and he’s one of the most creative people that I’ve ever worked with; he’s still a friend and a mentor, and he’s moved on to something else.

“So there are a few leaders like myself, [head of 343 Industries] Bonnie Ross and [head of Xbox] Phil Spencer that have been around for a long time, but I think that when you keep the consumer at the centre of everything you do, it’s almost impossible to become stale because our consumers don’t get stale. Gamers change all the time, and gamers told us that they want more choice, right? That’s why we made the announcements we made.”

“Through ID@Xbox and my publishing team we can engage with game developers on every spectrum, from the one- or two- person shops all the way up to the big AAAs. It keeps things moving and it repeatedly challenges what we think about game development and what we think is the right direction for the future.”

If Microsoft’s intent, then, is to keep responding to the changing customer’s desires and wants, then that at least ensures that their lineup doesn’t get too homogenous- and sure, we’re seeing that, what with Microsoft funding games like Quantum Break, ReCore, Scalebound, and Sea of Thieves in addition to their traditional Halo/Gears of War/Forza output. But at the same time, I think something is lost as a result- if Microsoft are forever chasing trends, then they will no longer blaze trails like they once did, with prescient, at that time unprecedented games like Halo and Gears of War. While Microsoft’s output now is, I suppose, more varied, it’s also become safer. Something is lost, and I have to wonder if it was worth the trade off.

Awesome Stuff that you might be interested in

    Uhhh Pramath, u need to have some “safe” franchises to keep the business afloat. That’s why we see Sony and Ninty hold onto their main franchises as well, that usually turns a profit, and that allows for new IP and other developements. I enjoyed RYSE, Sunset O, D4, and ReCore brings back that old school stay on your toes gameplay. ScaleBound looks to be a fresh JRPG for me, Sea of Thieves looks fun, and I wanna see what uncle Phil shows at E3. So yeah Microsoft has invested in new games, but they didn’t blow. Guess what tho, neither does most of Sony’s new games and Nintendo, not to take shots but just sayin. Funny thing is, people say they want new stuff, but they rarely buy them, on ALL consoles……so who’s the hypocrites?

    • XSpike

      What safe IPs does Sony keep around except GT? They might run with an IP for awhile but Sony is no stranger to dropping IPs once they’ve run their course & go on to create / invest in new titles. MS barely has anything to show & the new titles that they are showing – ain’t that impressive. Though I am interested to see more of Sea of Thieves (not holding my breath) & Crackdown 3(Cloud computer, 3x the power of Xb1 for every Xb… Not.) Still be interesting if the game releases (Will get on PC if they any good).

      Early next year I’m so looking forward to Nioh, Persona 5, Nier, KH1-2.8, Tales of Berseria, Berserk & Horizon, maybe another title or two but have to wait for some price drops too many titles as the games keep coming.

      A good lot of new IPs / exclusives for well on PS, it is why you see Sony invest in games like Heavy Rain / Demon Souls (though Sony only did Japan) which MS got offered first. The IPs did very well, sure Beyond Two Souls wasn’t that great – Detroit:Too Human looks very good.

      TLoU wouldn’t of sold if people didn’t want new stuff, they do but it has to be good it can’t be Quantum Break, Recore or any of them titles as it at least has to be a good game that leaves a good impression.

    • Mark

      Really? Sony is up to GOW4, UC4 (possibly 5 in the future) GT 7 I believe, Persona 5, Yakuza 6, Infamous 4 in future, possibly KillZone 5, and there’s probably more. That’s waaay more than Microsoft, so I don’t get what u mean. And I didn’t say Sony never killed off their older franchises, I simply said they have a “safe” group of heavy hitters that keeps the business going great…just like the others.

      Microsoft barely has anything to show? Like Scaleabound, Sea of Thieves, Crackdown, State of Decay 2? YOU may not like it, but that’s subjective. I feel mainly the same about Sony’s new games, so yeah. Sony showed their hand at PSX, it was good imo. But we have to allow Microsoft to show new stuff too at E3, since they don’t run their own game shows.

      As for most of the Sony fans, they (not you) love to mention their exclusives, but RARELY do they buy them. Last Gaurdian? SF V? All the “must have” JRPGs they list when arguing? Why aren’t the charts lit up with Sony exclusives? There’s 50 mill out there….oh and some of these same games have good reviews by MetaCritic, but not bought. Like I asked before, who’s the hypocrites? Most of these dudes are console keyboard warriors, period.

    • Gamez Rule

      I thought PS4 had about 1200 games, ( over 100 are exclusives ), while Xbone has about 880 games with a ( smaller amount of exclusives approx- 30 )

      I could be incorrect but Sony just offers more games with more choice of games. As you know yourself exclusive titles have always been a big part of video game marketing and what helps sell a console and it’s Sony that has the upper hand when it comes to console exclusives so looking at that really MS and Xbone is looking kind of stale when compared to what Sony offers it’s gamers.

    • Mark

      Ok then, list these games that set the NPD, Amazon, SuperData, or UK charts on fire that u mention. What sold 3 million copies on PS4, exclusive? I know VGchartz isn’t perfect in sales, but they do follow NPD and these other physical sales stats. I’ve seen the numbers for PS4 games, and they barely hit 2 mill. I know this is close to being true because Sony’s exclusives can BARELY hold top 10 in charts for even a month…please list these games that have sold many copies, which cements ur argument about Sony’s “dominance” in exclusives…

    • Gamez Rule

      So now it’s sales on exclusive games that count, BUT not the amount of games offered to users? How about looking at it like this, due to having more game choice on the Sony platform each game sells less but overall more game sales happen.

      Truth is like I stated “I could be incorrect but Sony just offers more games with more choice of games. As you know yourself exclusive titles have always been a big part of video game marketing and what helps sell a console and it’s Sony that has the upper hand when it comes to console exclusives so looking
      at that really MS and Xbone is looking kind of stale when compared to what Sony offers it’s gamers.”

    • Mark

      Hunh? If these millions of people that picked up a PS4 for the exclusives are excited for them, that should translate into sales no? We can see that multiplats DOMINATE the PS4 charts, by far. I mean SF V and Last Guardian bombed from what I’ve seen. So have MANY of their exclusives. Nobody I know says “I love the variety on PS4, but I have no interest in them.” That’s an oxymoron. People know what games they want, and sales of those games reflect that…

    • Gamez Rule

      Yep, same as consoles too. And the sales both favour Sony

    • Gamez Rule

      For stating truth..Yeah kid☺ If that makes me a fanboy then I’m proud..At least I own consoles LMAO!

    • kma99

      I know you’re proud. Kids will be kids. About time you admitted it instead of crying and trying to look at pictures of grown men.

    • Gamez Rule

      Sad, very sad. Troll on kma99 and make yourself look even more childish than what you’re already doing.

    • kma99

      You complain everyday yet somehow im the child lol.

    • Gamez Rule

      You post fanboy pics all the time just like a kid would do, and sad ones at that too.

    • kma99

      And i will post them long as u keep up your stupid antics. Crybaby

    • Gamez Rule

      See what I mean, LMAO!, Carry on with the crybaby comments as well as throwing your toys out the pram over PS4 / Xbone, comments as all it shows is how sad you really are as a person☺

    • kma99

      Cry some more clown

    • Gamez Rule

      LMAO! Thing is you must think people laugh with you in life when in truth they must laugh at you if going by your posts☺

    • kma99

      No we all laugh at you. Grown man crying over the internet about video game console makers lol. Get out of the house and find a girl. You’re pathetic.

    • Gamez Rule

      And here comes the insults PMSL! Sorry but who was the one that jumped into a convo with a silly fanboy picture?…Oh that’s right it was you kid, so before trying to call someone pathetic try taking a look yourself and deep down you’ll see just how pathetic you really seem☺

      Go and play on your imaginary consoles mate☺

      My point has been made 100% kid ☺☺☺

    • kma99

      No it hasn’t crybaby

    • Kyle

      the article says nothing about ps4 or the competition all the article say is that the games are fresh, look at the article and actually read it this time

    • Gamez Rule

      I was replying to Mark on what he was posting in a convo, so no need to read anything thanks☺ Plus we can post what we like within reason on articles so no need to worry yourself about who post what☺

    • Gamez Rule

      “Ok then, list these games that set the NPD, Amazon, SuperData, or UK charts on fire that u mention. What sold 3 million copies on PS4, exclusive?”

      “Uncharted 4 is the highest rated game of 2016 and has already won over 100 Game of the Year awards” Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End has sold through 8.7 million copies worldwide since it launched back in May 2016.

      8.7M sales without being a year old yet is really good as a exclusives go. ( I could be incorrect but I think that game alone sold more than any single Xbone exclusive game )

      http://thisgengaming.com/2017/01/05/uncharted-4-has-sold-8-7-million-copies-worldwide/

    • Mark

      You’re listing the biggest game on PS4? Of course it sold great, so too did Halo 5. I’m referring to all these other must haves that Sony fans mention…

    • Gamez Rule

      Truth is that game I showed above shows that PS4 gamers do buy and support console exclusive goodies, and that game alone has lit up all charts on fire. That game also eclipsed Halo 5’s reported first-week sales too.

      It’s like Driveclub, some people said that it sold poorly, but truth is that Driveclub sold more than two million copies in nine months ( before the release of Playstation plus edition )

      https://twitter.com/Rushy33/status/627124414325354496/photo/1

    • Mark

      Yes, that game, alone, sold great on PS4. But why wouldn’t it? It’s Sony’s flagship series. Same as Halo. But all the other Sony exclusives sold ok, or simply poor. 2m in 9 months for DriveClub isn’t really good, it’s only decent, and that’s with huge marketshare. There’s been times where Xbox exclusives have charted higher than PS4 games, and that’s with half the install base. Where’s Last Guardian that people bragged about? Why aren’t these games charting high? I know why, just go look at FFXV, Destiny, COD and Watchdog sales..this gen is ruled by multiplats, power, and price. I respect ur opinion, but I ain’t seeing the proper data to make me feel otherwise.

    • Gamez Rule

      Posts show that PS gamers do buy and support games. Not all games sell well on all consoles, but exclusives do sell when people want them as shown above.

      Driveclub was at 2 million within nine months of release and before the release of the PlayStation plus edition, so when compared to Forza Horizon 2 which released also in 2014, that only recorded 1.21 million sales after a year from it’s release date, now Driveclub sales don’t look to bad do they.

      Also Forza Horizon 2 was on 360 and Xbone unlike Driveclub that was only on PS4. So the installed base was bigger than what PS4 holds due to being on both MS consoles.

      Plus Halo 5 is also sold on Microsoft Windows so those 5 million sales are not just console sales unlike Uncharted 4 sales and that also means that the install base would be much more than what PS4 holds.

      Multi plats will always have the chance to sell more due to being on multi-platforms, but PS4 also offers more games than what’s being offered on Xbone as we both know and data shows that too.

    • Mark

      Well Forza selling less than DriveClub doesn’t really mean D Club sold great, it just means it didn’t flop. If u look at all those PS4 exclusives since launch, only possibly a handful got to 2-3m, again on a huge install base. That just doesn’t add up that people are buying the PS4 for those games, when they rarely buy them. As for multiplats, I’m speaking of what was sold on PS4; they crush the exclusives outside UC4…what does that say? People demand multiplats, more than they’re own exlusives, on both systems. All the data’s there.

    • Gamez Rule

      But point being made as shown many times by the sales of the above games is that PS gamers do buy and support exclusive games and by the looks of it even when MS have been selling games on 360 and Xbone some Sony exclusives still sold more.

      Unless ever game shows it official sold figures we’ll never know, but from the data I’ve shown above shows exclusives do sell even though they may not sell as good as multi-plats in which we already knew.

      Truth is PS4 offers more games than Xbone, and PS4 exclusives do in fact sell, and in some cases as shown above they sell better than 360 and Xbone exclusive games like Driveclub and Forza Horizon 2 showed us.

    • Mark

      Well I never said exclusives don’t sell. My feelings are that people say that’s the reason PS4 is dominating, yet other than a very few exclusives, manage to sell 1-2m, again on a large install base. Yes PS4 has more games and more variety, but most PS4 owners simply don’t care about them in the way you feel they are, going by the numbers. Supporting a game to hit 1-2m is one thing, but those numbers defenitely don’t show me that this is why gamers are going PS4….I have my own theory and I do have some data to back it

    • Gamez Rule

      So may I ask what your own theory is on why gamers are going to PS4?

      We both know PS4 exclusives are selling, and getting supported even when sales haven’t been updated as shown by Infamous Second Son only showing a million copies sold in Nine days but the DLC beng downloaded at 3.5 Million. We now know PS4-Pro is still selling good as most stores are out of stock, so I am willing to drop what we have been posting about and I’m ready to see your theory?

    • Mark

      Check dis out bro, now this is what buying a system for its exclusives looks like; I did a little research on WiiU and dam, they have atleast 5 games that hit over 4m. 1) Smash Bros – 5m. 2) Mario Kart 8 – 8m. 3) Super Mario 3D World. 4) Splatoon – 4.6m. 5) Super Mario Maker – 3.8m. Wow. And mind u, the WiiU is only about 14million units worldwide! That absolutely puts Microsoft and Sony to shame, especially wit their huge marketshare. This is the kind of data I’m lookin for brother, super impressive

    • Gamez Rule

      Have posted below… Look for “I have seen the Wii U figures”

    • Mark

      Well as for Infamous First Light, it was a standalone DLC, and when it was downloaded 3.5m times, it was actually free with PS PLUS in Jan. 2015. So personally I wouldn’t count as sales.

    • Gamez Rule

      My point for the Infamous post was to show that 3.5 million people downloaded that DLC *First Light* from PS+ and that shows support even IF that’s been free or 50% off etc.

    • Mark

      I think we’re thinking about this differently, of course u guys support ur exclusives, but I’m talking console sellers, with numbers to back it. The numbers that says yeah, this is why people are buying PS4 in droves. Uncharted and Halo are, so far, the only games that have performed well enough to be considered that. Again look at WiiU numbers I posted.

    • Gamez Rule

      I have seen the Wii U figures. And I understand where you are coming from by showing those figures. But we wasn’t on about other consoles, we was on about PS4 / Xbone, and I’ve shown that PS4 gamers supported some of their exclusives more than Xbone exclusives even when games are released on both 360 and Xbone. And some games are console sellers as clearly pointed out by devs as well as Sony / MS.

      But IF looking at Wii U and PS4 / Xbone, then IF people are supporting the exclusive games on Wii U * Why isn’t the console selling* and why is it coming to an end in such a short time of release?

      Truth is people buy consoles for so many reasons and exclusive games is part of that BUT Sony have given those buyers other reasons they needed to choose PS4 as the PS4 has outsold Wii U and Xbone combined.

    • Mark

      My theory; PS4 is winning mainly because of; 1) Price advantage at launch and in more markets than Xbox 2) Power advantage 3) Microsoft’s DRM confused and

    • Mark

      GamingBolt is screening my “Theory” I wrote lol. I’ll try to repost it later. Look at this in the meantime tho, tell me what u see. It’s a Neilson report about what motivates gamers to buy PS4, X1 and WiiU https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b3d4c1b1ee2e9057c7cc17ef6bc4e0bd2c23850111ecbf3a6a370a32047ac98e.png

    • Gamez Rule

      All I see is a chart with 13+ year olds being asking why they purchased the following systems. Ones like we see all over the place if being honest.

      Everyone has their reason on buying BUT if you have to pick why you bought from a selection of answers then that could stop the real reason why people made their choice..

      Example…

      Question: why choose PS4 over Xbox One?
      Answer: Because MS tried to take away gaming offline, stopping people from using 2nd hand games and selling our games, making people use cameras like Kinect that no-one wants, etc….. *Person asking that question states* “We cannot write that, can you please choose from the answers listed below”…. New answer from list = Fun-Factor☺

    • Mark

      Well notice, number one reason is…resolution. I already knew that. Number 3 is “Game Library”. The interesting thing about this is, Xbox and WiiU has “exclusives” in the top 5, but “Game Library” is ambiguous, but it is not “exclusives” else people woulda chose that. I wrote my thesis below but it’s blocked. Funny thing is I went into detail about what u wrote with the Microsoft DRM debacle

    • Mark

      I’m goin to sleep. Good debate. Write me sumthin about my WiiU post and I’ll read later

    • Mark

      Halo 5 Forge just came out on PC Sept. 2016. Frank O’Connor mentioned that Halo Gaurdians sold 5m in 3 months bak in 2015, so I’d wager it isn’t far off from UC4. Look for the “Sales” paragraph below

      https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halo_5:_Guardians

    • Gamez Rule

      I wasn’t on about Halo 5 Forge. Halo 5 is stated on the following link “Xbone and Windows platforms”.

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halo_5:_Guardians

    • Mark

      Yooo somebody was trolling on Wiki bro, Halo 5 didn’t touch PC, other than Forge and that was late 2016. Halo 5 isn’t on sale for PC, look at the platform it’s listed under.

      https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/s/ref=is_s?k=halo+5+guardians

    • Gamez Rule

      So if i bought this halo 5 deluxe game from the MS store I cannot play this on windows?

      https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/store/p/halo-5-guardians-digital-deluxe-edition/btfm6jrrsstm

    • Mark

      I doubt it. But if u can play it on PC, all’s it is, is an extended copy of the Xbox One version, thus you’d need to buy it on X1.

    • Mark

      Frank was being annoyed on NeoGaF by some Sony fanboys claiming Halo didn’t sell good, so he jumped in the thread and silenced them. I remember that, ridiculous. Why they didn’t announce sales I don’t know but Halo sold very well

    • Gamez Rule

      Thanks for placing some understanding on that. I was always trying to find out why it happened that way and now it makes sense.

    • Mark

      Yup. Eh respond to me below and I’ma read it later, gotta sleep lmao

    • Mark

      Also, Halo 5 sold 5m in 3 months…I’d like to think it’s close to Uncharted numbers by now. And if it isn’t, it only had half the install base compared to PS4. So I mean UC4 should’ve outsold it imo

    • Gamez Rule

      Exact sales numbers for Halo 5 haven’t been published as of yet so it’s unknown where the sales are but the post made showing UC 4 sales and driveclub shows support from PS fans for PS4 games even when people believe there is no support and that gamers don’t buy games.

    • XSpike

      GT, Hot Shot Golf & MBL The Show I would say are the only games are IPs that Sony will always support. Killzone is probably gone, much Cambridge will develop a KZ but I see Horizon being the main IP for Guerilla atm. Uncharted 4, mostly a PS3 IP & they are moving on from that game – a few small standalone titles isn’t a thing to really complain about.
      Most of Sony devs are working on all new IPs, Days Gone, Horizon, Dreams, Detroit, Days Gone, others..
      MS will have some announcemnts at E3 but so will Sony & probably even have more games to announce while still going to more shows like TGS & PSX.

      Sadly I don’t really like the look of Scalebound, I do like the openworld of it & some of its ideas. But ultimately it looks like the DMC reboot for combat & Lair (PS3) gameplay when your on the Dragon. Co-op is always awesome. Really need to play the game myself before I fully judge that game, could be enjoyable.. Sea of Thieves, looks fun with friends but how fast will it get boring? Its just one of them games, looks awesome & fun but doesn’t play as you expect. Still hoping that one turns out great, as I’d enjoy destroying other peoples ships.
      State of decay, first one good idea & all the second one could be a very good game. Forza, yeah pretty cool but damn one every year & Halo.

      Still that list just pales to PS4 & Sony still has the most 3rd party support with a crazy amount of games. Its not completely MS fault they don’t have as much exclusives, but it’ll never be gained – I actually thought Sony was going to lose this gen before it started due to the Cell processor & Ms could of had full B/C day one. Sony could of only done it with the Cell or ditch B/C, even developers thought MS was going to lead this gen till that announcement.. Was a shocker, in a bit of a laugh as they had a great opportunity coming off Xb360.

      I do see MS if they do it right with the Scorpio they could at least stay in the business for a while & have a new console business model. With the Scorpio with that extra grunt, on boot up you can select Win10 (or Xb OS), & even go on XBLive & play all your Xb1 games (controller only) but also go on Steam to play other titles (K&M Support).
      They did just recently announce a light Win10 for gaming, so I do hope I’m right.. Sure it’ll be kinda like the Steam Boxes that failed, least I think MS would have a much better chance of having success.. I think them releasing just a powerful XB1 with little exclusives / titles are on PC, the console will fail & MS will leave the console business. So yeah, E3 will be exciting, MS must have something pretty big to be releasing a new console – So I will be looking forward to that.

    • Mark

      Ok ur kinda using conjecture, I’ve already seen Neil say he’d help with UC 5 if another studio makes it, on Cinemablend. Every title I listed will be in Sony’s portfolio till they call on it. They will be making money off of sequels for years to come bro, and have been since launch. They will ALWAYS have a mix of new IP and old every year….like every other platform. This is historically factual.

    • Mark

      The Cloud is real too Spike. PC graphics artists already use it (Azure, Amazon EC2) to render graphics faster than their own rig could handle. It’s real bro, just that people doubt it for gaming cuz it’s totally new, and I understand the skepticism. We’ll have to wait n see for CrackDown 3, but professional media artists already use the Cloud.

    • XSpike

      Rendering graphics that doesn’t have to be uploaded in real time & to multiple players, that enhance the graphics / physics along side the base console is damn lot easier. It has the power, but getting it to work in real time & have the game running smoothly worldwide to everybody player is a big job.

    • Mark

      Crackdown 3 isn’t rendering graphics….it’s offloading CPU jobs for physics, which is way less than big chunks of data for each frame…also, Microsoft does have Azure in most developed countries worldwide. I have confidence in them to pull this off.

  • Zatoichi

    Microsoft is not and will not ever be a global contender in Console Gaming. They are a Western brand that does well there.

    Sony and Nintendo both do well on a global scale. More bull $ hit Microsoft advertising.

    If you want Microsoft games do yourself a favor and get a gaming PC..

    You can play all Microsoft exclusives on that and get either a Nintendo or Sony console for actual excusive titles.

    • Mark

      What if we don’t wanna play on PC? What if we want only the console experience?

    • Zatoichi

      Buy it.. Knock yourself out. It is a free market. Buy the console that has the exclusives you like. With Microsoft, having no real exclusives buying a gaming PC is best if you have that option. In the best of worlds, buy all 3 of the big 3!!

    • kma99

    • kma99

      You worded it like as it was facts dummy. Go back and read your own n post moron. Microsoft sold 90 million 360 and you think you know what type of contender they are in thr console market. Stay salty

    • Michael

      If ms left the game market they would be OK. Sony’s whole existence depends on gaming. Microsoft don’t need to go compete globally as long as the US keeps buying. Gaming needs ms but it’s clear they don’t need gaming. Sony will always be envious of what ms has accomplished. Sony is not who they used to be

      That’s the thing though, Microsoft is in a good position because gaming isn’t as important to them as it is to Sony and Nintendo. Gaming to Microsoft would be the tip of your finger, to Sony and Nintendo it’d be the heart, lungs, brain and spinal cord, without it they’d die off.

      The Xbox is a niche brand but it’s doing extremely well considering that it isn’t Microsoft’s focus, it’s sky rocketed past the Wii U in sales by over 2x the amount and is only being beaten by the PS4.

      Microsoft also doesn’t care if you buy their games on Windows 10, even if Xbox never sold another console but their games still sold well on Windows 10, they wouldn’t care regardless.

      You’re back on here after I embarrassed you. Most of MS IPs have been flopped and you’re trying to say that their game still sold well. LOL

  • Mr Xrat

    What a silly statement.

  • Riggybro

    Your customers are stale.

    They buy COD, Madden and FIFA every year in huge numbers without fail.

    That’s pretty stale.

    • Mark

      In both systems right?

    • Riggybro

      Shhhhhh be calm my friend… you are getting all worked up with this console war business.

    • Mark

      Wait, ur post is very selective, but I’m worked up?

  • Chris R

    Microsoft needs to work on getting better games. They have to milk the Halo, Forza and Gears franchise to keep them someone competitive against Sony.

      Hi, you don’t know me but I would like to ask you for a little favor, if you could send a message to the liar of retsuprae on my behalf? He blocked me, but I just would like to send him just one more. (it has already been tested for this site and it doesn’t get banned).

      I would appreciate it.
