the reality is on thursday phil spencer, matt booty, and sarah bond are going to sit on some little yellow couches and pretend to talk casually while asserting the idea that after that podcast is over you will have even less reasons to own an xbox than you do now.

But they will continue to act like your friends like on a Nick Jr show so yall can sleep soundly that night.

Can’t wait for Xbox to announce them doing Sony games as well as removing day 1 on gamepass for their heavy hitters…

but the Ms Stan’s here will be guzzling Phil because they announce their next consoles, like finishing a gen early twice in a row is a good thing, Phil you ain’t making no switch, you’re just making another bronze box.

What Sony Stans speculate - Xbox goes 3rd party and gives up on console hardware.

What Xbox Stan's speculate - Xbox denies publishing games on other platforms at all and assurance that hardware is here to stay.


What logically folks expect - A mix of all of that.

What I expect - some rebranding and expanding of what Microsoft studios does and wants to achieve. I believe ABK (Zenimax also) and whoever they acquire in the future will continue to publish as 3rd party overall with most of their games coming to gamepass.

Essentially nothing is off the table when it comes to being published on another platform. ( A early goal of theirs anyway just via gamepass instead of a disc) You'll just be able to play is sooner and "free" via GP

Gamepass gets a price hike via a restructure. Possibly some kind of ad or trial version of GP (probably not at or during this event)

Assurance that hardware is here to stay.
Xbox games coming to Playstation while still being "here to stay" is like having a girlfriend that starts to date other guys on a "case by case basis" and assures you she's here to stay.
