Scalebound Cancellation Is Unfortunate, Xbox Scorpio Will See Lot of First And Third Party Support – Pachter

‘Microsoft have been pretty good with content.’

While news is currently being dominated by buzz and chatter about Nintendo’s newest system, this week was also the week that saw the cancellation of the long awaited Xbox One exclusive Scalebound, the action RPG led by the legendary Hideki Kamiya.

Scalebound‘s cancellation has precipitated a sort of chain reaction among all circles- fans are making an outcry about the lack of upcoming Xbox exclusives, insiders are reporting that apparently Microsoft aren’t even working on many games at the moment, and in general, it’s a bad look for Microsoft, coming on the heels of an extraordinarily good year for them.

According to Michael Pachter, analyst at Wedbush Securities, however, Microsoft will continue to support their systems, including the upcoming Scorpio, with first party games- and those, coupled with third party games, should ensure content. “Microsoft has had great first party. The Scalebound cancellation is unfortunate, but they launched Gears and Forza last fall, and they have been pretty good with content. I am sure we will see a lot of first and third party support for Scorpio,” he said to GamingBolt.

I hope he is right- I’d love for Microsoft to go all out, and release a spate of unique and desirable exclusives, much like they did for the original Xbox, or in the first half of the Xbox 360’s life.

    unique doesnt always sell…check most of sony’s exclusives. Desirable is a personal opinion, your crap website did a crack at halo, but it sold 5 million in 3 days….
    EVERY big 3rd party game comes to PS4/X1, so its just stupid to have this up…but this site is not about quality.

    • Psionicinversion

      no its about getting things wrong!!

    Desirable is subjective, I think unique and successful works better.

    You heard them. Xbox Live engagement is at an all time high. Its not about the lost hardware sales, or the lack of 1st party games. Its all about the Xbox Live subscriptions, and the ads.

      I’ll call your bluff. Post the old Crimson profile pic. The truth is, you saw what I really look like and it wasn’t what you expected. You like that muscular man body, you’re probably sweet on me.

      There are never any ‘product’ ads as was suggested. Most I’ve ever seen is a simple square that links to the latest game release or whatever.

    The sad thing is MS still think she that hardware was the problem with the XB1. Just like the last few years of the 360 til now they haven’t created any classic games. The Scorpio will not solve their problems because in the end it will need some good exclusive software support.

    • clyde

      Hmm interesting point. Not sure I agree though. They kind of go together. Good hardware (desirable by consumer) gets sold a lot. Large install base encourages developers to make more games and they are more likely to make exclusives games as well. See 3rd party exclusives on the PS4 vs XB1. Good hardware (easy to develop for) attracts many developers to make games. Plethora of games available for a system encourage consumers to buy the system.

      Also see the Wii U – Nintendo created published many great games from mario 3d word to bayonetta 2and they still had problems.

      For Microsoft’s part they haven’t done to bad. For XB1 i really enjoyed Sunset Overdrive, Gears of War 4, Quantum Break, Ori and the Blind Forest. Halo 5’s campaign disappointed but the game is good and multiplayer is a blast. And master chief collection is one of the best collections in gaming, akin to the orange box last gen.

    Just make another Killer Instinct already 🙂

      Why? Regardless of it being cancelled, it had fail written all over it. Sea of Thieves looks like fail too. Crackdown 3 sounds like fail. MS is wasting their efforts of these multiplayer focused games when people want the type of epic single player experiences that are on Sony’s console. Phil Spencer knows this and this is why he moneyhatted Tomb Raider to compete with Uncharted 4. But that ain’t enough to save the Scorpio from impending doom when these remaining 2017 Xbox One exclusives drop, and fail.

  • crazy_black_man-

    No, you dug up my old Disqus profile from all my comments on old Madden articles on Pastapadre. I get it, you’re probably just a skinny little runt with no muscle mass at all, and youre masturbating to my profile pic. I don’t blame you bruh. I get that a lot.

  • crazy_black_man-

    Yes, I would like to officially clear the air. Efnet loves the taste of transgender penis. He lives in Florida, and when’s he’s not online defending the Xbox, he’s in booty shorts with his azzz cheeks hanging out, partying at the Pulse Club.

  • crazy_black_man-

    LOL. You dont want none of this.

    • efnet

      You just told on yourself, you’re in florida ….
      Jacksonville.
      And it is you who don’t want none, trust me old man.

    • crazy_black_man-

      Actually, I’m in California. 3hrs away from Los Angeles.

    • efnet

      Hey! Don’t get silent now chunky.

    • crazy_black_man-

      Sorry, had to leave for work.

  • Code Geass Season3!!

    Wow you sure have done a great job getting under degenerate_black_man’s skin. He is being such a keyboard warrior as of late it’s hilarious.

    • crazy_black_man-

      Wow. You are holding his sack ever so tightly there buddy. Careful not to squeeze too hard.

  • Code Geass Season3!!

    Keep going it’s amusing how pathetic he is acting and how hard he is trying to sound clever and one up you but fails every time.

    • crazy_black_man-

      LOL. You need a hero like him to fight your battles little fella? How sweet.

  • Mr Xrat

    Nooooo! The Pachter curse!

      “”Pro is very smart branding, it’s clear we all understand that, we all understand it’s a more expensive model. It’s a PS4 Pro. I get it.”

      Yes indeed..:)

  • crazy_black_man-

    Thanks for that. Not even curious about the name.
