How to manage to sell more Xbox One, despite the machine being in the minority in this generation, even considering the presence of many valuable titles and services clearly more advanced than the competition? It only takes a few simple steps, and with several articles and statements it is possible make a console of the current generation ready for the next, confirming that for at least two years Xbox Series X will not present generational exclusives, and that therefore all titles will also be able to run on Xbox One. Sounds like interesting information! How can a console born already old in 2013 combine the power of a machine with many more TeraFLOPS and an SSD? Simple, it can't.
And that's why several titles will soon arrive exclusively on the Xbox Series X, just like the Sony counterpart. Denying the generational change would make no sense, if not to create confusion among users undecided about what to buy nowadays. It is clear that technology advances without waiting for any user, and that the development possibilities evolve day by day, precluding those who own outdated machines from playing the latest works that arrive on the market. But then, why give life to this affirmation? Lies have short legs, and this is certainly not the way to create the identity that sees the company in favor of consumers for 100%.
Knowing that a console currently on the market will be able to hold all the exclusives for the next generation, and that these will also all be included within theXbox Game Pass, is definitely a plus for many buyers. Too bad, however, that the statements of Phil Spencer result with the data in our possession partially false, and that the event Xbox Games Showcase has put us in front of gods again titles that won't make it to Xbox One, at least according to what has been declared. In fact, it seems that developers will be able to independently decide what to do with their games, and therefore the Xbox division will not be able to guarantee what is stated below.
You won't be forced into the next generation. We want every Xbox player to play all the new games from Xbox Game Studios. That's why Xbox Game Studios titles we release in the next couple of years - like Halo Infinite - will be available and play great on Xbox Series X and Xbox One. We won't force you to upgrade to Xbox Series X at launch to play Xbox exclusives.

Are these really the premises of the Xbox Series X?
We are therefore faced with one maneuver not entirely honest, designed to reassure players with potentially unreal information, as they are 100% dependent on software houses. In fact, it seems unlikely that these are trailers and developers who want to pass off as generational exclusives games that won't be. During the Xbox Games Showcase there was space for in-depth information on the reference platforms for each title, as well as for the initiatives of theXbox Series X Optimized e Xbox Smart Delivery. The fact that some games not designed for Xbox One may one day enter the platform does not justify the statement just mentioned. Works like Everwild e The Medium they do not have precise release dates yet, but it seems that they will only arrive on Xbox Series X within two years, as considering the placeholders and the statements on the official sites, release dates are expected to be close. By adding Scorn, Hellblade 2: Senua's Saga, State of Decay 3, Force e Fable, we have a total of 7 titles that won't make it to Xbox One, also in this case according to the trailers and the information released, and which therefore completely break Phil Spencer's statement, provided that the latter are really programmed to arrive quickly.
The recent Everwild trailer confirms that the title will only arrive on Xbox Series X and PC, while the page of Xbox.com official states that the game will arrive "soon" (assumed within 2 years) and also on Xbox One. Instead, we have further confirmations for The Medium, as we know that this will not arrive on Xbox One as reiterated by the developers, however it seems that the work will also arrive in this case "soon", as confirmed by the page on Xbox.com and the Steam page. which speaks instead of "Holiday 2020". Not a little confusing information, which in some ways could push players to buy an Xbox One or pre-order an Xbox Series X based on unreal data. There are only a few months left for the next generation to arrive, and behaviors like this could lead to a collapse of the Xbox division, which will have to deal with communication errors in some ways unforgivable.
