    Microsoft really need to get their first party studios in check. Competition is a great thing for consumers but at the moment there's just none.

    That's a shame, that was their only chance to compete with Sony this holiday.

    Hmmm well kinda expected it to not be a launch title at all. But still sucks for the X peeps.

    I was just thinking this before this delay, what are the big games coming out for Christmas this year besides Cyberpunk 2077? (watch it get delayed again too) AFAIK NIntendo has nothing big, Sony or Microsoft now.

    I also will not be surprised if both console launches are delayed to early next year. There's just no big reason to buy them and people are struggling anyway.

    Well, this means I might actually get my hands on one without having to wait in line overnight for a pre-order. I only played multiplayer halo 2, so I have some catching up to do I think.

    Well I was wrong they confirmed Xbox Series X comes out November. I guess they will have to use Cyberpunk 2077 to try to sell the system, a game that is also on PS4/Xbox One. I don't know of any big exclusives coming out at launch for XBSX, at least PS5 has Spider-man.

    What, 3 months out isn't "adequate time"? The hell are they smoking over there?

    It's not really 3 months you need about 3-4 weeks for the game to go "gold" and print discs. Since games take years to make and now we're talking next gen a couple of months just isn't very long unless they were close. On top of that it's probably more difficult with Covid as mentioned.

    WELP, looks like Xbox don't care about hardware, while simultaneously claiming it's "the most powerful console"........
    how many times we have to see that it's not the most powerful but the one with the coolest and/or most games the one that wins?

    On one hand we have ppl saying "with all this power 60fps should be the norm", or "gameplay above graphics"...
    On the other hand "game doesn't look that good", "is this next gen"...
    Ultimately cinematic presentations and shiny screenshots will win and 30fps will have to be the target for graphically intensive titles once more.

    Them buying TikTok is probably a great move, as a financial safety net in case the SeXBox flops. (Again)

    Welp! There goes my only reason to buy an Xbox Series whatever-the-hell on launch. But I do completely understand. And it's necessary for at least one person to quote Shigeru Miyamoto whenever anything ever is delayed: "A delayed game is good eventually, but a rushed game is bad forever." Especially after the complete fucking waste of resources Halo 5 was, and the slight disappointment that Halo 4 was, I'm definitely willing to wait a bit to experience it.

    Just please make it good this time.


    Please.
