According to a new report, Xbox creators might bring Xbox games to rival PS5. This could be the end of exclusive Xbox games since many of its exclusives are already shipping for PC as well.
Former IGN reporter Colin Moriarty claims Microsoft wanted to bring Halo to PlayStation. Microsoft planned to bring Halo: The Master Chief Collection to PlayStation, Moriarty said.
His claims based on “good authority” could be the end of Xbox exclusives. Project Scarlett may end up seeing many of its games come to PS5.
Sony and Microsoft are already exploring a strategic partnership for streaming. Both companies will partner on “new innovations” to enhanced user experience. Microsoft will use direct-to-customer entertainment platforms and AI solutions for the cause.
The two companies will explore joint development of cloud solutions based on Azure. Microsoft and Sony will use Azure for their respective content-streaming services.
Sony has always been a leader in both entertainment and technology, and the collaboration we announced today builds on this history of innovation,” said Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft. “Our partnership brings the power of Azure and Azure AI to Sony to deliver new gaming and entertainment experiences for customers.
The partnership between the two companies can go beyond streaming services. Writing about the possibilities one has to wonder if streaming will bring them together.
Is it too far fetched to think we will be able to stream Xbox games on PlayStation? Services like Xbox Games Pass on PlayStation would usher in a new era of gaming.
Xbox Game Pass bring PC and Xbox together in the most meaningful way. What’s stopping the company from considering Xbox Game Pass for PS5? If the company already thought about Halo on PlayStation. It is exciting to think Microsoft and Sony can come together this way.
Microsoft’s Project Scarlett reveal is set for 2020. The console will release in Fall 2020. While seeing Xbox games on PS5 is exciting, hardcore fans may not see it that way. It’ll be a very tricky business to handle.
