So Bethesda Games Xbox will be exclusive, but don’t expect the Xbox to say it out loud

Yesterday, in a lengthy interview, rounds were made between Kotaku and Phil Spencer with some pretty random content (could the Series S load games faster due to the lower scale texture?), But it also says close to the micros the feet that yes , On the PlayStation that its next big Bethesda Games Xbox will not be exclusive.

And that probably. They are the closest Will Come to say that, at least before Series X begins.

The crash of the exchange is that Kotaku asked Spencer if he could still recoup an investment of 7. 7.5 billion, such as Elder Scroll VI, with giant games No Sold out on the PlayStation, which will not move 100M + units in the next pay generation.

Spencer gave the “yes,” point blank before the extended point.

“The deal was not to keep games away from another player base like his. Nowhere in the documents we kept with it was: ‘How can we keep other players from playing these games?’ We want more people to be able to play games, not less people to be able to play games. But I can also say in this model – I answer your question directly – when I think about where people can play and the number of devices we have, and we have the cloud and the PC and the game pass and our console Base, I don’t have to go to other sports platforms on a platform other than the platform to make that kind of deal work. Whatever it means. “

So what does that really mean? What Spencer says without being quite clear is that yes, whatever Bethesda makes ahead of existing big deals like Elder Scroll VI and Starfield and existing deals like Deathloop will probably be the Xbox.

But at the moment the definition of “Xbox Exclusive” doesn’t just mean bucks. Micro .ft is developing the Xbox, specifically this Pay Generation, this Pay Generation, which includes Game Pass and Excluding Streaming. So going forward, “Xbox” will be considered less as a physical bass and more about a complete platform ecosystem like Netflix. Like, you’ll play your “Xbox Exclusive” on your actual Xbox, but also PCs, laptops, tablets, phones, smart TVs and whatever else can play them. Or ready to run them.

By default, it will outperform rival consoles such as the Nintendo Switch and PS5. I can Maybe See if Nintendo agrees to run GamePass / Excloud on the Switch, but Spencer suggests there may be some issues. Even Sony? Yeah Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like BT aint for me either. And so by that definition, no, you won’t be able to play those giant Bethesda games on the PS5 in the future, and Microsoft thinks they can afford it.

And I mean, they can. If Micros the Fit goes down the Netflix model and costs more than it actually brings, then Micro .ft is also one of the largest companies in the world and can afford to do things like that. They want this space to be Netflix, whatever the cost, and they want Elder Scroll and Starfield to be their assets, such as Stranger Things and Cobra Kai are a motivating factor for signing up.

But again, don’t expect Phil Spencer to say things like “No, Elder Scroll and Fallout and Starfield won’t be coming to PlayStation in the future.” This console will play a lot in the story of the war which Spencer says he hates, even if it is literally an action taken to get the micro .ft in this market in good condition. It’s just a business. And yes, there probably will be Some Bethesda games that make their way to other consoles, but I totally expect that Microsoft will save the biggest releases for the Microsoft ft, Xbox ecosystem, so that they can at least try to match Sony and Nintendo, on a specific equivalent There is a problem. Now.

When the gloves actually turn off, we’ll learn more about all of this after the launch of this new console. For now, we will hear the most about this.
