Holy fuck. Holy fucking shit. I’m just out here drinking my morning cup of joe and Xbox drops this NUCLEAR BOMB on me on a Monday morning? Do they not realise it is inapporpriate to be this fired up at work at 9AM?
This is huge. This is game changing (pun). I’ve been talking for MONTHS about how Xbox just doesn’t have anything to play outside of Halo and some upcoming exclusives that seem too far out and are only mildly appealing compared to the blockbusters that PlayStation is working on. So what do they do? THEY GO OUT AND BUY FALLOUT AND ELDER SCROLLS.
Can you imagine not being able to play Fallout V or Elder Scrolls 6 as a PS5 owner? What about the next DOOM or Wolfenstein, because don’t forget, Bethesda owns those studios too. It’s gonna be really interesting to see how this all plays out over the next few months because PlayStation already has exclusive deals for Bethesda games Ghostwire: Tokyo and Deathloop. How does this deal affect that? Can Xbox renege?
Also, Xbox has talked a lot about how console exclusives seem to be a thing of the past. Is this one step closer to that reality? PlayStation not having the next Fallout and Elder Scrolls could force them to strike a deal with Xbox. Or Xbox could say “fuck it” and we can go right back into the glory days of console wars.
Regardless, this is the biggest gaming news of the year and I am shitting my pants right now.
