Stop releasing Xbox One "exclusives" on pc.

You think you can get sales when you have no real exclusives. Your games are usually ending up on pc. Gamers know this by now. Dead Rising 3 was the last game you lost. Why would people buy your console when it doesn't offer exclusive games?

    Many PCs use Microsoft software... What's the downside of releasing on both console and PC? It allows game developers to maximize their profits and (hopefully) use those profits to improve their games for years of enjoyment across both platforms.

    Stop this Microsoft, we want Xbox one games should be a console exclusives only not to play in PC, then what the point we buying or you releasing Xbox One S/X instead we setup our PC into TV and buy Xbox Wireless gamepad.

    The PC is an Xbox in a way. It still uses the Microsoft platform to run the games. I love the ability to play my games on the PC and console and to pay only once. If there were more games from PC coming to the Xbox, Now that would be awesome.

    I honestly don't see how MS thinks it's fair to release XBOX exclusives on PC'but PC exclusives don't come to XBOX.

    i would say, no console exclusives but Windows 10 eco-system exclusives all of them with the crossplay, that would be HUGE and that's what a lot of people are waiting for, we only got a very tiny few games with that by now, not everyone has the money to buy an expensive pc, they can buy a console, it's great and inexpensive compared to the pc, but pc can't play with xbox and vice-versa, there are a couple of games...ok, but by now there should be much more games! i mean, it should almost be rule for any game, see lots of games being released to pc and xbox1 but no cross-play! why not?

    Play anywhere is good. but Almost all gaming PCs are better than XB1 x. over 60fps , 4k and so on.. XB1 needs a reason to buy. A small number of 'only XB1 AAA games' can be the answer.

    I strongly disagree.
    I bought XBOX ONE because I like the play anywhere idea. It makes the xbox ideal complement to an ultrabook such as Surface Laptop. When my xbox is retired, ultrabooks will probably have the power to continue playing the games I once bought for XBOX. If play anywhere is removed, I'd feel betrayed.
    Please Microsoft do not listen to those who want "console only" exclusives. It is one Microsoft, one store and one game for all. You do not need to build walls inside you own realm.

    I vote to keep Xbox esclusive for the console only.
    The magazine and all the press new narrative it's the lack of real exclusive on Xbox. We know Sony marketing it's pushing this new narrative, but what we can do? Magazine, forum, etc.etc. can create or destroy thrthe new or old trends.
    Now we have Xbox x, so we have the best possible technology at our side, let's get back the exclusives and nothing will left in Sony hands to push the narrative.

    not going to happen, might as well face it, xbox hardware and pc software are pretty much all Microsoft ..it aint so bad..only thing is , if you have the pc version you realize how bad game consoles really are

  • KILLER0881 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I very much like and can relate to this discussion. I have a beast of a PC that is double as powerful as the X; therefore if a game is also available on PC I am always going to get the PC version. I bought an X anyway just because I've owned every iteration of Xbox One thus far, but I would really like to see games that are on Xbox and NOT PC. Right now just about the only thing I'm looking forward to playing on the X is Halo. Everything else I have an interest in is also on PC. I also own a PS4 Pro and enjoy the exclusives on it because they are NOT available on PC. We need more games that are NOT available on PC, whether they are Xbox exclusives or on both consoles. Now that the X is out the choice between a game on X or PS4 Pro is easy, but it can NOT be on PC.

    i know right, give me a reason to want a xbox one x instead of a ps pro

  • DroopyNut8 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    This is one of my biggest peeves with xbox. How can Microsoft not understand or see the error in this process. The xbox like nintendo systems will only survive if they are provided with a healthy roster of exclusive titles just for that console. forza and halo are no longer contenders and as for gears well....that's been forgotten since it was released.. Xbox dearly needs high quality unique first party exclusives and even 3rd party support in that manner.
    after all great exclusives will sell systems that is a given.

    I vote for this with my every fiber and being!!!!

    MidBread73842 Dude, seriously. Most people have Xbox Ones because they don't want to play on PC like me. So it's not totally useless, you stupid moron.

  • StrawProduct282 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    K C Caine You mean Xbox exclusives. Console exclusives refer to games released on console in addition to PC. And you guys (not talking to K C Caine) are idiots for thinking Microsoft should keep Xbox Play Anywhere. Discontinue it now Microsoft!

  • Jayjay122 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I feel that a better idea would be to release even more "exclusives" on PC from the Xbox Original / Xbox 360 / Xbox One, especially with the cross-buy/play anywhere format as there are many times when I would love to play my Xbox games on my laptop when not at home.

  • ItsGameOvrMan commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I could care less if it is released on PC or for that matter PS4. Just as long it is on a system I own. Why do you posters care so much about the word exclusive?

  • BetaCypher commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I 100% agree, they are to scared to show Console sales numbers but yet they add to the reason as to why people don't by Xbox's, lol
