    This is much better, clear concise, direct information everyone us looking for, why couldn't they lead with this instead of the previous shambles?

    I expected Xcloud to be a separate subscription, even though it wouldn't be in their best interests to have two concurrent services.

    Now that we have more clarity on their intentions, it looks as though Microsoft really are so far out infront of the competition.

    IF their studios can finally make good games, nobody will be able to touch them.

    I've heard a few people stating Microsoft are shooting themselves in the foot as any exclusives can be played on the old device/streamed so I'll just buy a PS5 and skip the Xbox. They are missing the point completely. Microsoft do not care if you buy a new xbox or not - they care if you are subscribed to their services. This is how they make their money. The consoles (hardware) don't really make money - the money nowadays is all to be made in services.

    They aren't the only ones, Sony tried to force digital only down everyone's throat, but had to back track. Trust me, as soon as people are ALL on board with subscriptions, Sony will ditch consoles as they are now.

    All corporations have been pushing toward subscriptions turnover a decade, it isn't an overnight thing, I've always been against it personally.

    Atleast this model (currently) is reasonably priced.

    What I'm still not clear on is why Microsoft hasn't made the Xbox into an entry level office and browsing machine. Microsoft tried things like Windows S to lock people into its own app store, but the Xbox is much better at that. Why not make Edge on the Xbox work seamlessly with the mouse, add Office 365 support, and possibly even roll that into the Ultimate service (or as a low cost extra)? Then my son could play and do his homework on the same machine. Instead of buying another PC, I'd buy another Xbox.
