Microsoft started the current generation by launching two Xbox Series devices, one of which is powerful in terms of capabilities, which is the Series X, and the other is for players who are looking for a new generation device at a moderate cost, which is the Series S. But how satisfied is the company with its hardware and its performance in general now?
The Xbox and the value it offers to the public has always been a hot point of discussion among the gamer communities, some argue that the company did not offer enough premium or first-party titles to be worth buying the device, others think the device is an excellent deal with Game Pass’s diverse library of games, and now internally There seems to be dissatisfaction with Microsoft about this.
During the last episode of the podcast Game MessVeteran journalist Jeff Grubb said Microsoft isn’t happy with how things are looking on Xbox at the moment.
Journalist Jeff confirmed that the device’s lack of games in the first two years of its launch was a painful blow to the company. Because the voices of the players and their opinion on this matter was clearly audible, and he continued speaking:
“We’re just trying to diagnose the condition a little bit, right? You know, they didn’t release a first party game last year, and if that doesn’t affect you if you always have something to play again as a player, great, but a lot of people regret buying an Xbox.”
This news comes on the heels of revelations that Xbox Series sales declined year-on-year while the PlayStation 5 continues to lead the home console sales market.
Xbox has highly anticipated first-party games like Redfall and Starfield coming out this year, and things could change because of them. There’s also a Forza Motorsport launch later this year that will add another first-party game to the console’s lineup. Other games like Fable and Perfect Dark remain in early development and aren’t likely to be seen anytime soon.
Do you think that the company is really dissatisfied internally with its devices, the performance of its devices in this generation?
