New Xbox Head Focusing on Gaming With Xbox One, E3 2014 Offers “Best Lineup of Content in a Long Time”
Phil Spencer also talks about the number of Shenmue 3 requests received.
Xbox boss Phil Spencer, who is now in charge of the division along with Xbox Live and Microsoft Games Studios, spoke to Polygon about the upcoming Xbox One line-up for E3, stating that it is “the best lineup of content in a long time.”
“We’re early on in the console generation and obviously Sony’s having a great launch. Console gaming is doing incredibly well right now. Six months ago, everybody wondered if console gaming was dead… but this is a long, multi-year generation and my fundamental belief is that great games create the best platforms.”
As for his new role within the company, Spencer stated, “With me you’re going to get a focus on gaming first and a best platform to play games on. It’s not a focus we ever lost but it’s one I’ll be accentuating at Microsoft. It’s really going to be a gaming-led focus with Xbox and my new role allows us to execute on that.”
Spencer also said he’s aware of the number of requests made to bring Shenmue 3 to the Xbox One. Whether it happens or not remains to be seen though.
