Phil-Spencer

The big issue we have had at GamingBolt recently has been the redundancy of owning an Xbox- as Microsoft has moved to announce more and more of its games for Windows 10 PCs, we have begun to wonder at the wisdom of the strategy, since it completely nullifies the need to own an Xbox in the first place– at some fundamental level, consoles still need exclusives to justify their existence.

It seems that, on some level at least, Microsoft does agree with us, because Xbox head Phil Spencer has spoken out, assuring fans that not all Xbox exclusives will be coming to Windows 10.

Speaking to IGN in a podcast, Spencer said that Microsoft is more committed to consoles than it has ever been, and that not all Xbox One games will come to Windows 10 too.

Of course, with titles such as Scalebound, Forza Horizon 3, and Gears of War 4 all variously starting to be rumored for PCs too, at this point, I am not sure how seriously I want to take what he says. It is time for Microsoft to put their money where their mouth is.

    C’mon with the foggy messaging Microsoft. I mean these guys really shouldn’t have people guessing which game will be on just Xbox or PC. Starting to get annoyed by this whole thing. I don’t mind Xbox exclusives goin to PC, good for the Xbox division all around. But when u have people considering an X1 to buy for a certain game, u simply have to be transparent about all the platforms it will hit. Geez. Just allow all dam Xbox games to hit PC already! Lol. I mean why not? U already lost the console race, so why not make top potential profit off all your games?! And then reinvest that into new ip and sequels like u said. Ugghh. I’m gonna continue to have fun with ma games anyway so whatever.

      This is the problem with MS , they seem to be continually flip flopping. They ought to be clear and stick to their decisions. Phil is the head of Xbox he ought to be clear on what direction they’re moving in, instead of one thing today and another tomorrow. I’m really hoping Nintendo can resurface once again and we wouldn’t have to deal with all these flip flopping fiasco.

    • Mark

      Yup, I feel u. I’m so hoping NX is atleast comparable to the X1 or PS4 in performance..

    • Alistein

      Amen to that.

    • Michael Norris

      Said to be around Xone level performance which puts it near Ps4. That said i still think Nintendo is in a bad spot,they have also pissed off folks. No real Mario,Metroid and Zelda titles to speak about on WiiU.

    • Mark

      Word? I thought people were enjoying Twilight Princess, but I’m not the one who knows much about WiiU games so little do I know. All in all I’d love Ninty to become atleast a shadow of their old glory days (strong performance, full 3rd party multiplats, and top notch exclusives)….then I might cop an NX

  • JURIM-KILLZONE

    Yup…

    Fable Legends is one of them… 😉

  • Mr Xrat

    Yeah, the real junk like Fighter Within probably won’t get ported.

  • One With Shadows

    Notice how he said “come to Windows 10” and not “go to Windows 10”. Guess we know where his allegience lies.

  • One With Shadows

    “Not every Xbox game will come to Windows 10″….only the blockbusters.
