  1. At this point, microsoft should try to bring their Exclusives to the Nintendo platforms, in Japan at least. I’m sure that it must be a hit to have Halo in the System… Again, in japan at least.

      1. I would like it too, but with the poor optimization that game was made, im sure that the Switch could only run the mobile version… Just imagine a PUBG port worst that the Xbox One.

    1. That’s actually a good idea for them. They might actually create some awareness of their games that way to help make a more successful console in the future.

      1. Why is this a good idea ? Why team up with another loser company ? Let’s team up with the winners.

    2. This is the exact same idea that Pachter threw in during Wii U era. What’s up with that deuce though? Haven’t heard from him since Switch launch.
