ControversialI am 100% confident there will be >0 new players once the Xbox port releases
That 25M is not just console users thoughThere are ~25 Million GamePass users, who can try AoE2 on xbox for free. 1% of that population is about the size of the entire active AoE2 community today.
The console community is massive
That's true, but there are 120M+ monthly xbox users, it's just a massive untapped communityThat 25M is not just console users though
I think for competitive AoE2 maybe you are right. But most AoE2 players are PvAI or campaigns, and I think campaigns on controller in 4k wouldn't be to badI don't think too many, have you ever tried to play aoe on a large screen? most console users play on their restrooms with big screens, this game can't be played like most games, lets say that you can do most basic stuff with the controller but the sight will get tired really easy cause the constant reading of resources, units and many tiny things on screen.
As an experiment it will be fine, but lets not forget that aok was already on ps2 and it didn't succeed.
Now I don't have the exact stats to back this up, but I'd be rather surprised if many restrooms came equipped with a toilet, a big screen, and an xbox.most console users play on their restrooms with big screens
We know one person who has such a restroom thoughNow I don't have the exact stats to back this up, but I'd be rather surprised if many restrooms came equipped with a toilet, a big screen, and an xbox.
