Your simplistc argument doesn't stand unless you also believe all the low budget indie crap that aren't coming to last gen are also next gen games, but if that's enough to make you believe a game is "next-gen", then i can see why you like to talk about casuals so much
He's retarded because he makes retarded posts, and don't worry i only bestow that title upon you if you make enough of them. You're on your way there Darky
Edit - What analogy did he use? Do you even know what an analogy is?
What low budget indy games are only on next gen consoles? Most indy games hit last gen consoles and work on current gen too. Your comparison of an indy title and Flight Simulator is odd as well. Fight Sim is a big budget game that many PCs struggled to run well and relies on the cloud for data streaming. It's also not on any last gen consoles. Again Flight Sim is a current gen game its not cross gen and it isn't last gen. I don't get what you are even arguing anymore.
An analogy is a comparison used to make a point. You made an inaccurate statement about Flight Sim and he made one about Ratchet. If anything is retarded both of those comparisons were but he was joking and you were serious.
It could perfectly run on an Xbox One X, but MS has no interest in doing that for marketing, budget and logical reasons.
You have no evidence of that. MS is the company all about supporting the last generation. Phil Spencer never said anything about 'believing in generations'. If MS could have gotten Flight Sim working on X1 they would have. There is also no game that works on the X1X but not the X1. You realize it's the same platform right? They have the same CPU and that is the weak link.
The Series S needed to make an impact in the short term to get people in to next gen. The manufacturing cost of the XSX is only going to get cheaper.
The sales of the XSS does not determine the success of the Xbox Series this generation. It is one of many ways MS can make money. The XSX is still selling well and that is enough to keep people excited about this current generation. The XSS is the system for the long haul and for causals.
