Why doesn't Xbox have a large, alternative ecosystem with game stores other than the Microsoft Store?

On Windows, you can pretty much do whatever you want, and now the new strategy could be to open up to Xbox as well. Microsoft has long lost the console war against Sony in terms of console sales, and is looking for new ways to attract gamers. In addition to the main focus on game streaming, and soon also with mouse and keyboard, the Xbox boss is opening stores other than his own, such as the Epic Games Store.

A well-known gaming journalist recently stated that Xbox is having a very difficult time in Europe, and a couple of developers he spoke to who chose to launch Xbox on Xbox must have wondered if there was a point. One of these companies must be a large company. It's too bad that journalist Chris Deng isn't sure if Xbox as a console will survive.

Spencer mentioned in the interview that Moore's Law is no longer as fast as it used to be, and that console components are becoming more expensive and longer.
