It certainly doesn't stack up well for them when Nintendo & Sony are leading by example

I agree with pretty much everything he says here.

Re: Jim Sterling: It's Microsoft's Fault That Videogames Are Bad (The Jimquisition)

It's obviously partly clickbait but he makes a strong argument. They had a part to play but ultimately I think we'd be pretty much where we are now with or without Microsoft's help.

The concerning thing is once microtransactions/lootboxes/whatever name you dress it up as fall out of favour or are outright banned in too many places to be commercially viable then what do they move on to? I doubt it'll be pretty. I'd rather video games didn't increase in price or for more and more games to be locked behind 'DLC' but that may be where we're headed, if not something worse. We already pay more for games/consoles here in the UK

It's one of his worst videos. Blaming Microsoft for microtransactions is not his best idea.

His most valuable contribution so far has been the link between addiction, microtransactions and how the games developer's intentionally create gambling addicts.

They allowed Banjo and Kazooie to finally join Smash, so I doubt MS are entirely evil.

Re: Jim Sterling: It's Microsoft's Fault That Videogames Are Bad (The Jimquisition)

xbox's exclusives have been utterly shit for the most part. Huge reason I moved over to the PS4.

I can't honestly name a single exclusive title besides that quantum break game and that was shite. Games like halo or gears of war are fairly tired now.

big problem is, I think it boils back them wanting the xbox one to be an entertainment system, not primarily a games system, thats why its called the xbox one, one box for everything. Sony made the right choice in focussing on the gaming aspect because thats what people want. Xbox clearly put the games on the back burner and it really shows.

xbox 360 focused on the games and look how well it did. I had much more fun on the 360 over the PS3, can't say that for this generation.

He definitely has a strong argument for sure. Microsoft is responsible for pioneering and founding the idea of monetizing console games, but as DocBlue pointed out we were always going to end up here. The industry has a history of pushing the envelope for how much they can get away with until it gets cocky and it end up putting its foot in its own mouth.
