Steam show no intention of shifting, so Sony and Nintendo will probably carry on. Publishers won't skip those platforms because of the percentage, as it's still hugely profitable for them. 
 
The only people that benefit from this are the CEOs and shareholders. No way will it get passed on to consumers or developers.
Exactly this. The only time you see Epic exclusives are due to paid exclusivity deals, not due to better margins.

Not happening it seems.

 

.. for now...

 

I reckon there's a very decent chance they will go ahead with it next year; as per the leaked plan document (and as they have just done so on their PC store).  Would be a real deathblow to Sony & Nintendo's third party support that Microsoft could easily absorb the damage from (thanks to Gamepass revenue changing the console industry game).

Yeah true, wouldn’t be the first time a company downplays something only for it to rear its head again further down the line. It certainly feels like the industry is shifting this gen.

If there's anyone looking to take advantage of the new slew of titles that have received a FPS boost on their Series S|X, Assassin's Creed Unity is available for £1.99 through CDKeys here. Don't know how long it'll last but for that price, its worth a punt surely, especially as its supposed to have been patched from all its bugs by this point and now runs at a steady frame rate. Hell, I don't have a Series console but I'm tempted to pick it up for down the line.

It’s always hovering around that price, if anything it’s usually cheaper.

To be honest? I'm getting pretty annoyed that the Xbox BC team is currently focusing on enhancing games that are already up and running well on Series X/S and are not bothering with getting more games actually up and running in the first place!

I'd much rather see them focus on getting more than the paultry 42 original Xbox games up and running before they start doing 120FPS enhancements of well worn games that we already have running on the damn thing!

I'm more surprised that some of the games I've played on that list weren't 60fps originally. If the framerate has no notable drops I just presume it to be 60fps - as long as it's smooth, I just don't notice anything in regards to the framerate (I often set PC games to 30fps to turn up other settings that I can see, too).
