    Bethesda games will still appear on non-Xbox consoles on a "case-by-case basis." https://www.ign.com/articles/xbox-be...max-aquisition

    Well yeah, its extra money for microsoft. Why do you guys think they are going PC same release date. Microsoft prefer to dilute the brand, but just make more money. I dont see them making elder scrolls xbox excluse, not even xbox/pc exlusive. Thats millions of sales, paying Sony 30% is not really a big loss.

    Well shit this is major news, I wonder if this will have any negative effect towards the Modding side of Bethesda's games though. Though maybe we'll get a sequel to Prey and proper new Fallout sooner rather than 10-20 years after they have milked Elder Scrolls VI for all it's worth. Additionally lol at Iconic Franchise "StarfieldGame", has there even been any credible or substantial news on what it's even going to be yet?

    Edit: Oh wait I just remembered Scalebound fell through, I wonder if that'll happen to any of Bethesda's upcoming games...

    Case-by-case probably means only Switch if the game can be downgraded enough. Just like Ori and Cuphead.

    Ori and Cuphead aren't actually owned by Microsoft.

    Bolstering their exclusive games for Xbox and PC?

    I'm going to assume they've at least bought the exclusivity, so decision to release the games on other platforms still belonged to Microsoft.

    People seem to think this means console/PC exclusivity but must I remind you MC also owns Minecraft and if Skyrim has a contender for game on pretty much everything then it's Minecraft.
    I doubt MC will make TES6 or Fallout exclusive considering there is money in multiconsole releases.

    Age of megacompanies and mega buyouts.
    But I see absolutely no reason to fear for lack of Doom/Fallout/others on PlayStation. Nobody sane would want to loose on that money.
    Microsoft, however, might be trying to slowly build up to fight Steam.
    P.S.
    What chance there is that we will fianally get less bugy Besthesda games now? -.-

    Nice, does this mean we 16 new remaster ports of Skyrim?

    guess this means there now is a slight hope TES6 won't be a microtransaction hell, but not counting on it.

    Yay, finally Microsoft will bring proper bug suppression and remediation processes to Bethesda.

    Oh, wait.

    When is the last good Elder Scroll game?
    I think that was more of a "good" exclusive where Microsoft's involvement was needed to get the game running on the system. Also don't forget that generation has the Cube and PS2 (and Dreamcast I guess) which were significantly lower powered and rarely had hard-drive.

    A “B” company buys a “B” studio.

    They should of bought Bungie.

    It is kind of interesting though.

    Timed exclusives against Sony here we come. If not, what was the point of buying them out for $7.5 billion? The return on that isn't going to happen anytime soon.

    Bungie got away from Microsoft, then under Activision, then got away from Activision. I highly doubt they're eager to go under them again.

    They were actually in talks at several points in time but Bungie wanted too much money (rumored $20b).

    A Bethesda game? Without bugs?



    On a serious note, this is not a phenomenon unique to Bethesda games: pretty much every open world game ships with a huge number of bugs. RDR2 for example had a TON of issues at launch (and still does). Even more linear, but still big games like TLoU2 shipped with a massive amount of glitches and problems. Warframe has consistently released undercooked, bug-riddled updates since it launched.

    Developing games is more complex than it ever has been, anyone expecting a game of the scale Bethesda is known for to ship without bugs is kidding themselves.

    And the idea that this is going to hurt Sony is silly because Bethesda has already said that their games aren't suddenly going to all be XB exclusives. And honestly even if they were, Sony systems have never, ever been 'THE' consoles to have for Bethesda games. PS3 had by far the worst version of Skyrim, PS4 has the most restrictive modding rules for FO4/Skyrim SE, and Sony didn't even have Morrowind at all when it launched. And Fallout 76 is mediocre regardless of platform.

    So this isn't suddenly a thing where a feather in Sony's cap got yanked away. They still have a vastly stronger library of exclusives/first part games than Microsoft and until that changes, the pecking order isn't going to change.

    Depends on how much of the Creation Engine is used in their new engine...


    Joking aside, apparently there's going to be some more acquisition news at the Tokyo Game Show on Thursday.
