With the acquisition of Zenimax Media, and therefore Bethesda Games Studios all future Bethesda games will be exclusive to Game Pass. This means that the Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC will have them, but not the PS5 nor Nintendo Switch. Here’s what we know…
According to the head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, all future Bethesda games will be exclusive to platforms that have Game Pass. Elder Scrolls 6? Xbox or PC. Fallout 5? Xbox or PC. STARFIELD?! Xbox or PC only. Finally, Microsoft has an exclusive other than Halo or Gears of War to boast about.
It seems that every so often, the title of Best Console switches between Playstation and Xbox. The original Xbox was miles ahead of the PS2, because of Xbox Live.
The PS3 was arguably inferior to the Xbox 360 because it had some… thingy (I’m not tech-savvy, don’t ask me) that kept you from using a capture card with the console. Also, the Xbox 360 had way more successful cross-platform games, as it was MUCH easier to program for. The PS3 had a notoriously difficult architecture.
Yeah, I googled that. Fight me.
Playstation finally took the crown when they released the PS4. Markedly better performance, ridiculously successful exclusives like Horizon: Zero Dawn, Marvel’s Spider-Man, Bloodborne, and the example of pure excellence that was God of War.
But not, Xbox might just take the title again. Granted, it might switch back if Final Fantasy XVI stays Playstation exclusive and turns out to be a great game. *crosses fingers*.
