I was still on the edge on which console to get but if games like Fallout and Elder Scrolls are going to be exclusive to Xbox then I have to get a Xbox.

Fuck. If they become exclusive that will be shitty. 

Maryland? 

I hope they don’t get fucked to death like Rare did...

Looks like Im getting the Xbox instead of the PS5.

There has been zero confirmation that going forward those will be exclusives.

IIRC Microsoft has produced games that have been on multiple platforms. This one is tricky, on one hand they could pull those future titles away from PS and it would be a critical blow to them. 

However they still profit from them, so they may still allow them across multiple platforms.

It's interesting.

I've never owned an xbox, I've played them, but never owned one. If they become exclusives I guess I'll have both systems for the first time.

Hopefully they get Elder Scrolls 6 out sooner
