    Sony just lost the PS5 v XSX war before launch.

    ...I think this fits right in.

    Was a bit surprised when I saw that news this morning, yeah not great for Sony. Hopefully good news for ES6 and Starfield. It's interesting both Bethesda and Obsidian are under MS umbrella now. Lol.

    Yes! There's now hope for a proper Fallout game once again!

    I bet Microsoft bought Obsidian and asked them to do a new Fallout game, to which their replied that they can't as all rights belong to Zenimax/Bethesda. Next thing you know MS went shopping...

    I hope Microsoft does a better job with this acquisition than they did with Rare.

    Honestly I'm not excited about this. It means less competition and less developer independence. I'm hoping for the best, though.
