Xbox gamers have even gone so far as to get fellow gamers to sign a petition to show their support for Helldivers 2 and ask the developers at Arrowhead Game Studios to bring the game over to Xbox. At the time of writing, the petition had received over 88,000 signatures, with one comment stating “Xbox needs Helldivers 2 to lead the charge for democracy.”

Several others who signed the petition left a comment below stating console wars are a thing of the past. Over on Reddit, PlayStation gamers have been both surprised about the level of interest shown in the title by Xbox gamers but at the same time being rather assured that no matter what, the title will remain exclusive.

There was even a debate about how Xbox gamers enjoyed Palworld‘s success compared to the reaction shown toward the PlayStation-exclusive, Helldivers 2 which is also going rather strong.

Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision-Blizzard and Bethesda was also mentioned by some of those who stated the acquisition wouldn’t do much favor to Xbox gamers as a lot of the titles will still come to PlayStation consoles, ending up not affecting Sony or PlayStation at all.

On the sidelines, PC gamers will be a lot happier enjoying the best of both worlds with exclusives from both sides either releasing on PC together or getting ported to PC sometime later. Console wars may still wage on or get annulled by the slow fade-away by Xbox consoles and the eventual rise of PlayStation, either way, PC gamers stay unaffected and seem the best option for gamers to stick to at the moment.
