Da Microsoft købte Bethesda gav det anledning til en del bekymringer for især Playstationejere. Og Xbox-chef Phil Spencer har da også forklaret at det handlede om at få eksklusiver.
Det har dog eftersigende også sine fordele, og Todd Howard fra Bethesda siger i et interview med The Telegraph at det i sidste ende giver bedre spil:
"You don't ever want to leave people out, right? But at the end of the day, your ability to focus and say, this is the game I want to make, these are the platforms I want to make it on, and being able to really lean in on those is going to make for a better product."
Howard siger dog også at han tror at flere, og ikke færre rent faktisk vil kunne spille:
"By focusing on those platforms, you really get to lean in a lot on making it the best it can be for those systems. And we're big believers in all of the avenues that Xbox and Microsoft are doing to get games to more people. Whether that's the integration with the PC, which is huge for us, the cloud streaming and all those things. So I think it's about taking a long term view. And our belief that those things are really fundamentally good. So we see it actually opening up more and more and more so that people's ability to play our games - via Game Pass and other things - their ability to play our games doesn't go down. It goes up dramatically."
Betyder det problemfri spil til PC og Xbox? Hvor lang tid skal Playstationejere vente på det næste Elder Scrolls eller på Starfield? Der er mange og store ubesvarede spørgsmål der hænger i luften.
