Microsoft not satisfied with Xbox?
On the most recent edition of the Game Mess podcast (via Insider Gaming), Grubb surprisingly stated that Microsoft is completely happy with Xbox right now. The reason? The journalist recalled that 2022 was a difficult year for the brand and its players due to the lack of first-party launches.
He highlighted that, despite this, fans of the brand had great third-party launches to enjoy, but suggested that this does not make Microsoft very happy in terms of the perception of the brand and its first-parties.
“They are upset. We’re just trying to break it down a 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, that’s great, but a lot of people do regret buying their Xbox,” Grubb said.
The journalist affirmed this in the same podcast where he spoke about the alleged commercial failure of Hi-Fi RUSH, something that Xbox has already denied. So, it is best to take the information with a grain of salt, since none of the companies spoke about it.
Xbox currently has long-awaited releases on its hands and several of them will arrive in a matter of months. In addition, it is a matter of time before it is reinforced with the purchase of Activision Blizzard, which will undoubtedly greatly enhance the Game Pass catalog.
