As for this MS acquisition, MS has repeatedly stated that such acquisitions as this one are intended to bring exclusive content to platforms where game pass exists. That's almost a direct quotation from Phil Spencer concerning the Zenimax buy. They will obviously honor existing contractual obligations as part of the sale, and those include continued support for games contracted to be present on other platforms, e.g. Sony and Nintendo. Those games that are not currently on other platforms will very likely remain exclusive, and new games from these studios will almost certainly be exclusive. It remains to be seen whether new versions of existing games will be exclusive. I could honestly see that one going either way, depending on the game. Making, for instance, COD and Candy Crush exclusive seems like a really stupid move, but other games, not so stupid.

- Apple will need to start caring about games other than those in the Arcade.
- Game developers will need to port their games to this device.
- Apple will need to make it compatible with existing VR platforms, e.g. Steam VR, Meta, Windows Mixed Reality, etc.
The other, and more likely IMO, possibility is that it because a must-have accessory for my work PC. It's doubtful that my employer will invest in that particular possibility, unless it becomes obvious that it will be a cost savings. It's even less likely that I would be allowed to connect such an accessory to my work machine. Our security is so locked down that it took me three months to convince them to allow bluetooth connections other than the keyboard and mouse. 😕

That said, features, not style, are what will sell me on a new phone. At the moment, my 11 is serving me well, though I'm going to need the battery replaced soon. I'm looking forward to a new watch more than I am a new phone.
