All Future Forza Games Are Coming To PC. Is There A Point In Owning A Xbox Anymore?

Microsoft has announced that all future Forza games are coming to PC. What does this mean for the Xbox One?

Microsoft has confirmed that all future Forza games will come to PC. With so many Xbox exclusives already coming to PC, or already on PC, is there a point in owning a Xbox One anymore. My opinion my differ from a lot of yours, but I’m going to say no here.

The only games I truly missed playing on X1 was Killer Instinct, that’s already on PC, and Madden. Madden might not ever come back to PC and that’s just something I’ll have to accept because I’m not going back to console gaming, but my point here is if you have a decent gaming rig there’s no point in you buying Microsoft’s console unless you prefer sitting in front of a tv with a controller in your hands.

Quantom Break, Killer Instinct, Forza, Gears of War, Ori and The Blind Forest, Recore, Sea of Thieves, and Halo Wars 2 will all come to PC. There are more games, but I think I’ve made my point. Right now the only reason to get a Xbox would be for Sunset Overdrive, Halo, and Madden. I can’t see myself forking $300 for those games. I’m not interested in every game I mentioned above, but it’s pretty obvious that if you own a PC you should probably stay clear of the X1 and choose another console.

The Xbox One isn’t a horrible console. I had fun with my Xbox while I had it, but I rarely purchased games on it and it was just sitting next to my Wii U collecting dust for months before I decided to get rid of it.

If you prefer consoles over PC that’s fine. This is just my opinion on the subject and you’re welcome to disagree with me.

  1. I think while I have the financial status I have, I’ll always have consoles.
    The only real reasons why I choose console over pc is,
    1. It’s cheaper, I don’t have to upgrade my Xbox when a new graphics heavy game comes out like Battlefield (which I play a lot), (although with Playstation saying they might be bringing out upgradable consoles I’m worried about that)
    2. It’s easier to play co op with my little one.
    3. I have a Mac for doing my art and stuff for my voluntary job. I can’t do it on a Windows pc I’m reliant on Mac store apps and I’m going to be helping to make an app in the app store, so it would mean having two PC’s.
    If Steam boxes get better, I’d love one of those. đŸ˜€ For now I’ll be keeping my console, but if my financial situation changes then I’d love to do more PC gaming. I feel like I’m missing out a lot.

    1. You don’t have to upgrade PCs as often as you think. The GPUs in consoles is ancient and you can easily outperform one without spending a lot of cash. I can run The Division on full ultra settings at 60fps which is twice as good as the consoles can run it.

      Playing co op on PC is easy. Hook it up to a TV, grab two controllers and you’re good to go.

      I’d recommend a PC for Xcom 2 alone. I love that game :].

      I understand your reasons for wanting to stick to consoles. I used to be that way too :]. This new generation of consoles in my opinion pushed me away from them because they’re just so disappointing. They’re weak, lack exclusives, and are a overall disappointment to me.

      That’s just my opinion though :].

      1. They are disappointing, I was expecting to notice a real difference, but I think because Xbox are still producing games for the 360 that we haven’t seen the jump yet. I’m pretty mad that they are still doing that. They should be devoting their time between PC and Xbox One.

      2. Even the games that are only for X1 and PS4 are disappointing to me though. The best looking games that X1 and PS4 has are Ryse, and The Order and both of those games look worst then Crysis 3 on PC and that game came out years ago.

        I do think that the 360 and PS3 are holding the new consoles back in terms of graphics, but that doesn’t change how weak they are when compared to decent gaming rigs and I think Microsoft and Sony knows this because of the rumors about the new PS4.

        I wouldn’t be surprised if they came out with stronger versions of their consoles, but how would they explain this to their fanbase that already went out and brought their console of choice. It’s a slap in the face in a way.

  2. I suppose my own reason for having an Xbox is exactly what you described: my PC’s specs are not at a level to match a console. I’ll eventually save for a decent one but for me right now a console is good enough.

    1. That’s how I was a few years ago. When I got the PC I wanted I gave up gaming on consoles and eventually sold my Xbox. Only thing I have is a Wii U and 3DS.
