Xbox announced 'Marvel's Blade' at The Game Awards — but could it also be coming to PlayStation?

You missed one explanation: Microsoft is trolling the Sony faithful, like they did with STARFIELD. Kinda like Lucy and Charlie Brown. "This time they won't go exclusive." And then when it comes out...

Also, on the FTC, that horse is dead. No need to beat it anymore.

The DC bureaucracts have a bigger problem on their hands: their entire internal court system is under attack in various lawsuits at SCOTUS and elsewhere as unconstitutional. And the argument is persuasive if a long story.

An online search for "administrative courts unconstitutional" will bring out some details.

the ftc horse is beaten so hard its like a red bloody paste in the ground at this point lol.

and idk, i did mention that they could be keeping it obscure for "viral marketing" discussion but i think it's a stretch. ive not heard that microsoft does that kinda thing.

Sony owns Spiderman so they can milk it as much as they desire. Marvel seems more enamoured with Sony since they already have an existing relationship so they can release the Wolverine game as a PS exclusive. Xbox is not in that club, so maybe Blade won't be an exclusive, but it would be nice.
That said, Xbox has so much scrutiny from lawmakers and detractors, that MS is trying to walk a tightrope to keep from more legal battles or claims whilst keeping its user base happy.
Alas, It is extremely frowned upon when Xbox has an exclusive, that folks would get the PC release if it exists or forgo it altogether. These same people would sell their kidneys and offspring to get ps5 for one game even ifs a glorified DLC or remake.

Marvel has relationships across all platforms and publishers. Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 was exclusively released on Switch, while Midnight Suns (3rd party but also included Spider-man, Wolverine and Blade) was released on all platforms.
If a company gets the rights to characters, then they can make it exclusive or release it on other platforms. Spider-man and Wolverine will be exclusive to Sony (since their studios are making the game), and Blade will be exclusive to the MS ecosystem for the same reason.

"Too often does it feel like Microsoft and Xbox announcements come with some kind of confusion or caveat attached, whereas Xbox's competitors are by and large far more consistent with messaging and delivery. "

Actually, this doesn't happen the vast majority of the time (really, if you factor out some vagueness around purchases, there is nearly none) - this talking point only spring from your fingers because you xbots have weirdly taken to using a select few PS ****** talking points.

What worse than some vagueness that sometimes happens is Sony getting people to lie and play coy with their timed exclusives, acting from months like the 1-year deal doesn't exist or doesn't mean an Xbox port may even happen (which is stupid, what did Sony pay for if there is no near guarantee of an Xbox port?), for example.
