Do you think Microsoft are messing up?
From the turbulent start of the generation, having to do a 180 on DRM policies and such, then removing the kinect they tried so hard to push, to their decision to cancel the remaster of Phantom Dust, then to port half the Xbox One exclusives to PC, and now cancelling Fable Legends, closing Lionhead studios and now attempting to merge PC and console (and even considering making the Xbox One upgradeable-rumour has it???). How much faith do you all have in Microsoft.
Keep in mind it's not been all doom and gloom, they've done some amazing things with the Xbox One like introducing backwards compatibility (with already well over 100 compatible games), providing free copies of 360 games for buying the X1 versions (eg: getting Gears 1-3 and Judgement for buying Gears of War Ultimate Edition, getting Rainbow Six Vegas 1 and 2 for free if buying Rainbow Six Siege... the list goes on). Also they've upgraded the interface to Windows 10 style, improving the performance significantly, and provided loads of multimedia as well as implemented requested features from the community. They have even been working to make the system compatible with DirectX 12. Furthermore, they've been pushing for innovation, sealing some unique "exclusive" titles such as Sunset Overdrive, Cuphead, Quantum Break and Scalebound. Not to mention trying to push the boundaries of the system's capabilities with The Cloud, and the way Crackdown will utilize it looks absolutely astonishing.
What are your thoughts? Are these redeeming qualities? Or are they just distractions as Microsoft is causing a disaster?
