Powerhouse? Does this mean that these companies are going to stop putting out buggy and incomplete games that are way too focused on in game transactions?

This is really good news. Microsoft the last few years has had a good practice of supporting their talent and not strong arming them. You know like EA does.

Already preordered here in NZ. Launch date consoles went fast with Series X selling out first. Can still preorder for 2021.

Still have no plans to buy an Xbox. I haven't bought a Switch for the one or two exclusive games I'd like to play on the switch, so I can't see myself doing that for an Xbox either.
