Now that Microsoft has dated its E3 2015 press conference, taking place on June 15th at 9.30 AM PT, Xbox division boss Phil Spencer took to Twitter to talk about the Xbox One going on first among all the platforms, along with other interesting things.

On being asked why the publisher has to go on first, Spencer replied that, “We set our tone and show. Others can react if they want to but I’m comfortable being the first platform briefing.”

As for Sony seemingly playing off of what Microsoft does, Spencer replied that, “I actually think they do less/none of this than people think. They have their own show to run but I understand the concern.”

Spencer further stated that the “we have a lot of discussions about going first. It’s a good question.”

Another interesting question was posed as to whether current Xbox One games which suffered from unlocked frame rates would get a performance boost in the transition to the Windows 10 kernel. Unfortunately, as Spencer noted, “No, you won’t see shipped games perf change based on work we are doing in the future. Sorry.”

Finally, an interesting question was poised to Microsoft Studio manager Mike Ybarra. Would the Xbox One Games tab look better with a “Ready to Install” portion added to the UI? Ybarra thinks so, and stated that it was “good feedback. We’re looking at collection and options there.”

What are your thoughts on the future of Xbox One, especially with the upcoming E3 press conference? Let us know below.

    Xbox Will wipe the floor with Sony at e3 like usual

    • Corey

      Both shows will be good. Both companies have cool things coming. This console war garbage is so retarded. So much high school…..even between grown adults.

    • Starman

      STFU …no one is going to hold hands and sing Kumbaya …

    • Jen Jackson

      lol good one.

    • aceitman

      And u ask how old someone is , u stfu u dmf and go crawl back from the shithole u came from

    • Corey

      Of course not. But the amount of ignorant arrogant childishness is repulsive. Grow the f up!

    • Corey

      of course not. These are businesses. And we’re costumers. Both have decent products and services….and they’re selling them…..and people buy them. And they’re competing. Kumbaya isn’t necessary. Nor is all the console war garbage. Highschool drama is highschool drama….and temper tantrums are temper tantrums. The fact that the majority of the gaming community is a giant cluster F of children throwing temper tantrums is a pretty massive problem.

    • Poor PS Poor people

      The consoles are garbage period. They won’t even be able to play the new Ultra HD Blu-Ray discs. It’s hilarious.

    • Corey

      gotsto be able to has the new ultra mega 4k super technology!! Nom nom!

    • ImOnaDrugCalledSheen

      LOL, man this dude is diehard, stupid but diehard, Microsoft’s target audience.

  • andy

    Because they will do what they always do and just pay for a 3rd party show. Remember the massive year that Xbox showed off Fallout 3 and Resident Evil 5?
    Games that around the time of their launch, I had a friend who thought they were an Xbox exclusive. Goes to show how much it works. Doesn’t make it a good briefing though.

    • Starman

      You’re a delusional little Sony fanboy , that’s all Sony relies on is 3rd party ..because they have nothing in-house …so GTFO with that crap …

      Funny how it was all good when Sony paid for and locked down all 3rd pty exclusives with the PS2 MS does it , and it’s bad for the industry … PLZ STFU …

    • aceitman

      hey u delusional little xtard ,whats funny is how u say sony has nothing but sony Is the only one who came out with 1st party games out of the 2 through the months after Christmas, what did ms have nothing after halo mcc . and ms did nothing with the 360 but pay for 3rd party games with parity clause included not allowing devs to utilize the power of ps3 , meaning it cant look better than xbox360 or it cant be on xbox360 . tides have turned xbox is a dying brand , it will only be pc next gen .all xbox has is price cuts and apps next year ms ill have a dried up winter through spring like the last 2 years . get all ur games in fall. lmao

    • Starman

      How old is this kid ? ….thx for the laugh …oh yeah and …..STFU …

    • bardock5151

      What is with morons and thinking Microsoft forced any kind of parity?

      Do you fools even look at the games? Ever notice how the performance is better on the Xbox 360 version.

      Ever consider that a chip designed for server’s, a split memory architecture with poor paging and coherency problems, a weaker GPU and thanks to all that a much, much more complicated development environment than any other released to date may have been the source of the poor performance?

      Sony got arrogant, they thought they had another generation in the bag, they thought developers would just bend over and accept the much larger development times, the added cost to already ballooning development times and basically just showed how big a bag of d#&ks they are.

      Also notice how this generation they went easy to program for? Hmmm, maybe because they knew developers had already had jack of their BS last gen and weren’t willing to deal with the same BS again.

      Also Xbox isn’t going anywhere, the massive restructuring and rebranding to all things Xbox should tell even trolls like you that. Think about it.

    • Orion Wolf

      It always amazes me how quickly people (sony fanboys mostly) forget about things like this:

      “We don’t provide the ‘easy to program for’ console that (developers) want, because ‘easy to program for’ means that anybody will be able to take advantage of pretty much what the hardware can do, so then the question is, what do you do for the rest of the nine-and-a-half years?” explained Hirai.

      And there is this as well

    • Poor PS Poor people

      It’s funny watching PS Poor people like you. Keep up laughing!

    • Triton

      You forgot about Destiny and No mans sky already? lol

    • Demetrius Radford

      They’re focusing on more 1st party this E3

  • Demetrius Radford

    Right. Im an xbox one fanboy but i like ps4 and they just gave up on the vita and it was a great handheld. and some fans just want to deny every thing good that ms brings to the table

  • Truth

    Xbox Fanboys & Microsoft ARE the cancer of gaming.

    • Demetrius Radford

      sike lol u guys only care about 1080p

  • TristanPR77

    Preparing an E3 conference takes almost a year in advance. Planing, deciding the content and everything.

    This guy thinks that Sony will change their planned conference in less that 24 hours just to react to them?

    Wow, I expected Phil to be more intelligent than that. It is a very dumb comment.

    • bardock5151

      Phil didn’t say Sony would change their conference, he said they do less/none of that than people think.

    • Orion Wolf

      Preparing an E3 conference takes almost a year in advance. Planing, deciding the content and everything.

      Ah yes that comes from all the years you’ve been planning e3 conferences … right?

      This guy

      You mean the CEO of Xbox? The main person when it comes to planning e3 conferences?

      Yeah, what does he know?!

  • ImOnaDrugCalledSheen

    And you’re a real stand up guy Ryan I’m sure. Only thing worse then a fanboy is one who calls out fanboys while trying to hide the fact he is one.

  • ImOnaDrugCalledSheen

    Let em go first and get all those multi-plats and Kinect games out of the way before Sony hits the stage and the real show begins.

  • Poor PS Poor people

    $ 0 N ¥ has always been cancer to everything that they do since the beginning of the century. Poor low IQ tards keep falling for their lies and overhype that never delivers.

  • Poor PS Poor people

    Awww, more PS Poor people crying I see.

  • Snagg Dadon

  • Snagg Dadon

  • Speaking as someone who OWNS an xboxone.
    WHY .. WHY? does it take so freaking long to download the game FROM THE CD to the hardrive? it takes like.. 30-40 minutes!!. then.. theres always a DAY 1 update that has to upload/download from the internet, but since the files havent been made yet, it just bogs down the whole system more. :/ Dude, i have the CD, it shuld only take like a few minutes.. not 1hr.! COME ON. :/
