Bluehole don't make PUBG, PUBG corp does.Korean market has some good developers. Bluehole who makes PUBG came from there. Also Black Desert being developed in Korea. Kingdom Under Fire is last game Microsoft published from there.
Their headquarters is in Japan. While this position is for Korea, the headquarters indicates focus on Eastern market in general. We should expect more Eastern developed 2nd party games from Xbox soon. Would expect this to include Japan.
Bottom line is that while the consumers in Korea favor free to play, Sony’s console is starting to gain relevance meaning the market could be changing and open to traditional gaming experiences. If those traditional experiences could be available on devices they’re already using thanks to cloud, could open up some possibilities.
PUBG Corp is owned by Bluehole who’s a South Korean company.Bluehole don't make PUBG, PUBG corp does.

Sony's console also does F2P.
I wouldn’t assume that just because it’s a free to play market, all developers there only want to make free to play games. Ukraine consumers are also drawn to free to play games yet you have a developer like 4A games making Metro in that territory.A lot of them do have some great art though.

Not just an exclusive for every quarter, but a AAA game.Microsoft believes that its new studios will help it to achieve a primary goal, the delivery of one AAA game per quarter in order to drive Xbox Game Pass.

Its ideal acquisition targets have proven content and strong development teams.
All new Xbox controllers better have Bluetooth connectivity if I’m gonna be playing them on my phone or iPad (Switch?).Project xCloud: The Future of Streaming Cloud Aware Xbox Games on Mobile Devices and Beyond (Presented by Microsoft)

Yes, you can play your Xbox games on mobile!
Project xCloud is enabling Console Native games to stream through our Azure-hosted game servers and streaming clients. Any Console Native game currently shipping in the Microsoft Store on Xbox will be capable of streaming to a mobile device. Project xCloud is an open platform with a customizable Client UX where streaming starts with Xbox game developers not having to modify a single line of existing game code.
This talk - brought to you by the Xbox backwards compatibility team – will go deeper into how Cloud Aware games built with the Project xCloud SDK will help games adapt for mobile through the same graphics and input paradigms as Console Native development. You will also learn about the new microservices layer that allow customization such as glass and touch input when a game controller is not available, all outside of the game.
