     SMITE and  ELITE DANGEROUS are major players in pc games and for Xbox one to land them exclusively is huge for Microsoft. It’s so interesting to see the Xbox One evolve into a superior format despite its beginnings and global 2nd place. Its very curious seeing the so called entertainment console rule in games while the “made for games” console ps4 waits in the winds. Let’s look at this for a minute. Who would have thought this a year ago. Ps4 was suppose to be the end all be all to gaming. You would have thought that ps4 was the one getting these games while Xbox one waits. Especially looking at the global sales. So what does this mean or what does this show me? It shows and proves to me that Xbox one and Microsoft are beasts. They are seriously not taking anything for granted. They are under great leadership and vision and are getting stronger and stronger. The numbers aren’t giving Playstation the advantages because they aren’t dominate in the U.S in game sales. Hardware sales worldwide isn’t what make differences obviously to developers. Microsoft’s Xbox one is clearly not what the media claims when they want to praise ps4. Here in the States ps4 has never dominated sales. While they lead it’s not by much as compared in Europe and other territories. U.S sales truly does set the tone for developers it seem. They see xbox one is huge in the States so they have no problem in given exclusives to them. The biggest thing is that these games aren’t just coming over, they are 1 to 1 transfers with amazing graphics and frame rates. Once direct x12 and Windows 10 comes to xbox this could be just the start of you seeing more pc games porting over to xbox one. If this happens enough times ps4 could be in serious trouble. Content is everything and Microsoft seems to be stacking the deck so they can truly deliver for its Nation. As I have said before games like Smite and Elite with Halo 5, Quantum break, Tomb Raider, Forza 6 and the like for Microsoft has clearly shown them to be #1 for games this year again. A lot of people assumed it would be the opposite. Personally I’m shocked too that these games are coming out for Xbox one over ps4 for even a timed exclusive event with as many consoles ps4 has sold and how easy the format was said to be. I can only assume the learning curve might be coming to a end for Xbox one’s developers and they are starting to master the program language and tweaks needed to nail it. Basically this so call war is far from over guys and this means all win.
