Meh. Honestly, from the point of view of us gamers is anything significant going to be affected? We all know that the Fallout and Elder Scrolls franchises aren't going anywhere. Both of those are huge sellers.

we know where they are not going...playstation, and i can see xbox closing call of duty to xbox only.....they can even use this to force people to subscribe to their cloud system so ps owners can play anywhere....what needs to be seen is if people will threaten boycot when they anounce that.

I don't understand the outrage behind the title. I'm stumped.

Rooting around, but I don't see how the new branch doesn't fit in.

I don't play on consoles at all so I'm good to go.

a gaming console developer bought two publishers with lots of studios and original IPs underneath them. do you really think they paid this much to allow the competition to have acess to the most popular ones ?

It was a riff on the misspelling in the title. I made tree or four arboreal puns. I might have overdone it as you seem to have missed the wood for the trees...

All new games will require Crapdows 11 in the next couple of years.

BTW the new OS is a dumpster fire.

WIN 11 still has issues but hopefully those will be addressed with the subsequent and inevitable updates.


Look, I would love to use Linux as an alternative but unfortunately 95% of PC games don't run on Linux.
