"room to breathe" is that Microsoft always seems a step or two behind the competition?
What do you mean?
They want to make sure they get it right. Not repeat the Halo Master Chief Collection fiasco. So I rather they get it right the first time, than trying to send patches to correct the flaws that would degrade what we expect to be a great game.
The collection of games was on a totally different scale compared to this.
Scorpio upgraded now being factored in? 12 months time it will hit E3.
I would like things to be spaced out more its expensive.
Ewww, season pass...
