On last week's mailbox feature Declan Ryan asks if anyone else feels like developers are just churning out games without any real thought put into design.
This week Niall from Ireland e-mails into Xbox World 360 and asks if Microsoft are spending their money and effort in the wrong places.
To have your letter featured on CVG's Mailbox, drop us a line. Over to you Niall...
Its been in the news recently that those rich chaps at Microsoft have bought Skype! For £8.5 billion no less! Shocked! Microsoft let EA waltz off into the sunset with Mass Effect, possibly the best exclusive, GONE.
Rumours are rife that Gears of War will go multi-platform after GOW3, as Microsoft don't even own the rights to the series. Only a few months ago, Microsoft closed down many of their studios which could have made many good exclusives if they'd been given a chance.
My point is, Microsoft spent so much cash on Skype, and for what? So that we can use Kinect for Skype? So they can start charging us for a free service? They need to get their act together. Even in XBW 105, there were ads for Fable III and Halo Reach - good games, don't get me wrong, but they were from last year, and have sold about as many copies as they can!
Sony have Twisted Metal, Uncharted 3, Resistance 3, and many more coming out within the next year - they are looking to the future! It's getting harder and harder to back Microsoft's console. Please guys, tell me theres a gem hidden in the rough which will save Xbox 360?
XBW says: Answering this is a little like trying to calm someone who's frothing at the mouth about the 'Rapture', because we can see that there's nothing to worry about, but it seems that you're unlikely to see it that way.
XBW neither fears nor envies Playstation owners - nor do we go out of our way to make digs at their lollipop motion control thingy. We're the first to complain that the Kinect launch titles aren't anything to crow about. That said, we are worried about having to pay for Skype now.
CVG says: It is a little worrying but Xbox 360 fans have plenty to look forward to. On the first-party front there's Gears of War 3 and a few Halo related titles on the way, and let's not forget games like Skyrim, Saints Row: The Third, Batman and Battlefield from third-parties.
Also, it wouldn't surprise us if most of that cash came out from another division of Microsoft, we're guessing its games division is just one of many to benefit from the transaction.
