Today on Impulse, we discuss if Microsoft's spending spree will give it the advantage in the next generation


Netflix Originals? Can't wait for Xbox Game Pass Originals!

In today's episode, me and Associate Editor Peter Glagowski discuss the recent purchasing habits from Microsoft, which lately has included a number of notable game studios. From Obsidian Entertainment (the fine folks behind Fallout: New Vegas) to even Ninja Theory and InXile Entertainment!

But, will this help them in the next generation of hardware? Personally, I think this has been a long time coming. Despite Phil Spencer's statements in the past in regards to exclusive games, I absolutely still think they're the reason why so many people buy the hardware itself. I just hope these new studios they've purchased don't end up down the same road as Rare did for nearly a decade.

Whether or not these studios will be making Xbox exclusive games is still anyone's guess, but, if anyone can do Fable IV -- Obsidian Entertainment sure as hell can.
