Hopefully Dishonored (all three games) get the FPS Boost treatment very soon.

Only if they announce exclusivity, then oh boy. Ill be honest im just looking forward to the drama here.

Oh yeah, Cows (ie. PS fanboys that keep getting milked by Sony) will be out for blood this week no doubt.

All we can say is: TCHBO (The Cows Have Been Owned).

Only bethesda games on Deals with Gold is The Evil Within Digital Bundle and The Evil Within 2. I wonder if it's indicates something about GamePass.

I'm pretty sure all Zenimax games will be on game pass very soon. Maybe not all at once, they may want to distribute them a little bit over time, but they will come.

Let that figure sink in. Almost 8 BILLION DOLLARS. that's nearly the amount disney spent to aquire marvel and 20th century fox combined. Not to mention disney also got lucasfilms for 4B as well. That's some buying power right there. I just hope for some solid single player fallout games now

I tink you mean Marvel and Star Wars, 20th Century was $70 billion

Good to hear

There was no doubt that it wouldn't but what will happen now is PlayStation fans will not be happy with this because I think they may have been hoping that the EU would step in and say this isn't fair not sorry we are blocking it.

HUGE news when this was revealed last year.

I had to go back to the original post of the acquisition to see the hype!

From PC Magazine's article that I read, MS has no intention of making games exclusive. Last paragraph in article:

When the deal was first announced, there was a question mark over ZeniMax games becoming Xbox exclusives. Microsoft was quick to state that wasn't happening. In November, Xbox Chief Financial Officer Tim Stuart explained, "What we'll do in the long run is we don't have intentions of just pulling all of Bethesda content out of Sony or Nintendo or otherwise. But what we want is we want that content, in the long run, to be either first or better or best or pick your differentiated experience, on our platforms. We will want Bethesda content to show up the best as -- on our platforms."

Now kill the fallout engine microsoft

ID: gq75as7

...the fallout engine?

ID: gq77k2d

Why? They just spent alot of time upgrading the engine. It's their biggest engine update to date.

No, thanks.

I do not get how this is a good thing. Games that have been multiplat for decades should never become exclusive.

ID: gq7cxbp

Spider-Man was multiplatform for decades, but any time that's brought up, it's different for reasons.

ID: gq7bcv9

It doesn’t mean the games will be exclusive to Xbox
