Sony and Microsoft are doing whatever they can to entice us into either buying a PS5, or Xbox Series X.
One thing keeping many people leaning towards the Xbox side was the lack of exclusive games. Well in a surprise move, Microsoft has bought Bethesda Softworks and ZeniMax Media for $7.5 billion.
Bethesda is the creator of The Elder Scrolls series (such as Skyrim), and Fallout 4. They also publish games such as Doom, Wolfenstein, Dishonored and more. While this will no doubt worry many gamers, it's a huge win for Microsoft. The next Elder Scrolls game might very well be a Xbox exclusive.
