IT WAS A LACK OF INFORMATION ON THE PART OF SOME FANS. THE MEDIUM REMAINS EXCLUSIVE TO XBOX
Since yesterday, January 28, 2021, the community that likes horror games has been testing the new Microsoft title: The Medium, an exclusive for Xbox and which is one of the first titles that take full advantage of the power of the Xbox Series X.
Well, how could it be otherwise, speculation has already begun about its exclusive status just one day after its launch, especially on networks such as Twitter and specialized forums, about its possible jump to the Sony console, PS5.
Where did this information come from? The rumors began thanks to the image of a streamer who received a personalized Xbox controller with the art of The Medium, as part of the advertising campaign of Microsoft and Bloober Team, the developers.
The image of the control box raised suspicions among some, since with the appropriate zoom it is possible to clearly see the square, X, circle and triangle symbols, a combination that many associate with the control of Sony consoles and it is already something quite own brand.
EVERYTHING IS FALSE, WE REPEAT, EVERYTHING IS FALSE. THE MEDIUM REMAINS ON XBOX … FOR NOW
What actually happened was that the personalized controller is not “official” from Microsoft, it is a design of the AIM Controllers brand, who in all their products use these boxes that include the symbols of the PlayStation control.
This was known thanks to a video by the YouTuber CrunkSkunk, who showed more boxes from this brand:
However, it should be noted that Bloober Team is an independent studio that is not within the Xbox Game Studios and that it was not published under the Xbox Game Studios Publishing label, as was the case with other third-parties such as Tell Me Why.
That said, The Medium could repeat the story of Blair Witch, and after a couple of months stop being exclusive to Xbox to reach other platforms, such as the PS5.
