Insider talks about big problems at Xbox 13:08

According to Christopher Dring, editor-in-chief of the GamesIndustry.biz portal, many problems faced by Microsoft were identified at the GDC 2024 developer conference. This is what he’s talking about said As part of the GI Microcast podcast.

Thus, sales of game consoles and Xbox software continue to decline in the EU in 2024. Dring stated that Microsoft, as a hardware manufacturer, is experiencing serious problems, especially in an increasingly competitive environment.

Additionally, an unnamed major publisher with a major game coming out in 2023 expressed confusion about its decision, citing poor sales on the Xbox Series X/S. Other publishers have also expressed doubts about whether it is wise to release games on Xbox, given the significant effort required, including separate optimization for the weaker Series S, where the main platforms are PC and PlayStation 5.

Previously, concerns about declining demand for Xbox were mostly voiced by retailers, but now publishers have begun to voice similar concerns. The seriousness of these concerns and the willingness of some companies to refuse to publish games on Microsoft platforms remain unclear. Dring also shared information about the possibility of many of Microsoft’s exclusive games launching on PlayStation 5.

Despite the current challenges, Microsoft has a plan to overcome the current situation. The company has previously stated that game consoles will remain its core business and the sole platform for Game Pass. Development of the next-generation Xbox is also already underway, but its launch is still a few years away.

Previously reportedThat Microsoft was developing several portable versions of the Xbox at the same time.
