Phil Spencer On What Is Coming Next After Xbox Scorpio: ‘I Don’t Know What It Is Yet!’

“We’ve got no set timeline,” says Spencer.

Phil-Spencer

While Microsoft has seen bigger and better results for the Xbox One in the past year, Phil Spencer knows there’s still ways to go before it catches up with Sony and the PS4. Spencer has already gone on record as saying part of the recent success is due to the fact that he and his team are not, in fact, attempting to counter Sony.

Instead, Spencer is attempting to simply make his company and his products more attractive to the public.  Spencer recently sat down with Kotaku and explained the long-term plans are not to release a console every year and they are not even sure what is coming after Scorpio.

“We’ve got no set timeline on when we need to sell you the next console after Scorpio, we look and say, are there important consumer features? We looked at 4k TVs, we could see the uptake in 4K. People want to play at higher resolutions, higher frame rates — but the next thing after that? I don’t know what it is yet! I don’t need to give you a reason to buy a new console every year. In fact, I don’t actually want to!”

The Xbox Scorpio is the latest attempt to get in more customers but it has also made some worried that Microsoft is going to be releasing a console every year. Considering they are not cheap (at least on launch), that’s quite taxing on the gaming public. We will see what happens in the coming years when the Scorpio launches in late 2017.

    “Instead, Spencer is attempting to simply make his company and his products more attractive to the public”

    They might just try shipping Xbox One games inside those awesome blue PS4 plastic game cases, or try a promotion like “Buy any Xbox One today, and get a used PS4 from Gamestop for free”! Hilariousness!

      Stfu nobody care about PlayStation

    • crazy_black_man-

      LOL! I love it!

    • efnet

      I bet you watch ratchet reality tv shows, don’t you?

    • crazy_black_man-

      No, when I’m not harrassing you guys, I’m normally watching election coverage on CNN. You know, Don Lemon, Erin Barnett, Anderson Cooper, the stop Trump movement.

    • efnet

      don lemon? lol uncle tom don? stop the trump movement?
      boy do you really think stopping trump will change anything?
      we have a black president right now and still cant exercise our right like (them peoples)

      black kids cant even play cops and robbers with toy guns in 2016 ,
      a black individual cant even reach for his own id even when asked by an officer without getting shot, and then lied on even in death ….
      stopping trump wont change a thing.

    • crazy_black_man-

      And you’re blaming a black president who’s been in office for only 8 years for not fixing 200 years of racism in America. Son, I know I give you a hard time, but you have got to be smarter than that. I’m glad that you’re a success story. You’re finally living a life of comfort, but don’t let your success, and that bubble you live in, make you ignorant about the world machine, and how things really work. Leave the politics of black and white out of these discussions. I only come here as an escape from such things, to enjoy the lighthearted nature of the competing videogame consoles, their fans, and the ever changing gaming industry. I was here at the beginning, from the arcades to the current preoccupation, and the constant disappointment of the lower quality Xbox brand.

    • efnet

      not at all, im not blaming mr obama for a single thing, a few of
      his ideas helped me capitalize on this unjust and corrupt country we
      live in.
      a success story is exactly how i would describe myself so
      yea, you get 1 point for that, but you dont find it odd or sad rather
      that this comment section is your means of escape?
      wow! and here i am
      booking a week at st regis bora bora resort for my wife and i
      anniversary, now thats how i choose to get away, but this here (gaming
      sites) i so do wish people used them to converse with other like minded
      gamers instead of turning it into a escape goat for your meaningless
      venting…
      im just saying

    • crazy_black_man-

      Guess what Richy Rich. When you get to Bora Bora, you’ll still be crying about me on GamingBolt. No doubt in my mind. Ain’t no future in fronting. I told you over and over…nobody cares about your money here. If you don’t like what you read, move on to the next comment. Its very simple to do.

    • orion

      you suck

    • efnet

      Dang! Two comments on two different sites from you, did someone miss me lol
      I thought you were upset with me after you got kicked by nevla, I mean you did spaz out a bit when he shushed you.

    • -youjustgotburned-

      Harassing people on the Internet because they like a plastic box you don’t like and acts like Donald Trump wow no wonder you are who you are.

    • crazy_black_man-

      The fact is I don’t harrass anybody. I share my opinion in a comment to no one specifically and its YOU friggin guys harrassing ME for sharing my opinion!

    • -youjustgotburned-

      The fact is you do harass people and ridicule them for liking something you don’t like. Don’t try to play the victim Mr. Trump.

    • Andy Maas

      It sucks playstation will never get gears or halo dame it must suck to be a PlayStation hater

    • crazy_black_man-

      Listen, those types of recycled Xbox games are for you low expectations having teenagers. I have no desire to sit through any of them and that’s just me being completely honest.

      And you still get enjoyment playing Gears? I won’t ding you for it. Videogames keep people young in many different ways. They are great stress relievers. They also help with mental alertness, arthritis, and in many other ways. I just view Xbox as a bad consumer product. Nothing against you personally Andy.

      Crazy Black Man….is that you?

    • crazy_black_man-

      Not for long. Just got off work, showered, and ready to kick all sorts of azz in Madden 17. On PS4 of course.

    • Mark

      Lol. I won 2 local tourneys here in NJ. Me and my boys were pretty good….but not enough to ever win the national tourney ahaha

    • crazy_black_man-

      You using the Bills?

    • Mark

      Ok hole up. I won those tourneys back in 2004 on OG Xbox, ahahaa. Shoulda prefaced my last comment with that. I dropped Madden when it hit the 360 and the game mechanics just changed man. Short story, I’m retired. Maybe next generation EA might bring me back, we’ll see. And oh…..RAIDER NATION

    • Andy Maas

      This is why I pick Xbox over PS4 Xbox has better exclusives than PlayStation Xbox live is better

    • crazy_black_man-

      Ok buddy. I’m gonna let you enjoy that opinion. I’m a lot older than you, and I’ve been with Sony since the beginning. Never liked what MS was trying to do to my favorite hobby, and I will never support them in the console space. Its an ethical decision from an old school lover of video games from way back before you were born. No disrespect to you.

    • Andy Maas

      So have I but after the 360 came out with halo I switched to Xbox

      Sent from my iPad

    • Mark

      Dude I switched to Xbox because the PS2 was $600 bucks in 2001, atleast here NJ. And boy, I bought Halo with the OG Xbox bundle, thinking it’d be some stupid super soldier blasting ugly aliens with ugly armor, while showing a bore of a story….dam was I wrong! I wish u coulda played the first Halo at launch, so memorable man.

    • crazy_black_man-

      I played it on PC. I felt nothing. Found it to be a very forgettable experience, but that was just me.

    • Mark

      Really? U didn’t like the campaign maps or the AI? Man it was one of the few games that I felt like it was tough to beat because of smart AI on Heroic or Legendary, rather than enemies simply hitting harder. But I hear u, everybody ain’t gonna like it. But me and ma brothers have many fun memories with Halo, love it.

    • Andy Maas

      I did play halo on the original Xbox

    • Riggybro

      Those two games you mentioned are precisely the reason why people go with PlayStation.

      Yawnfest last gen 2006 shooters… adults want more these days.

      If 0nly sony would of done that with vita and the walkman they wouldn’t be operating in the red so much.

    • chiraq

      a mind , no matter how old, is such a horrible thing to waste.

    • crazy_black_man-

      Or in the teachings of Xbox 101….”A mind is a terrible to have.”

    • efnet

      Wait what?
      Lol
      A mind is a terrible to have???
      Damn bruh lol

    • -youjustgotburned-

      His talking about his mind.

    • Mark

      Lmao

  • -youjustgotburned-

    Microsoft has indeed done a great job with the Xbox One and Xbox Scorpio won’t be their last console.

    • orion

      I wouldn’t bet on that. but ok.

    • -youjustgotburned-

      Another Xbox after Scorpio?

  • crazy_black_man-

    Wait, what hotel did you book again? Really Mr Efnet? Oh my gawd? Really? Wow! Really? Really? Really?

    Too funny!

    • efnet

      And what difference does that make?
      Still i said absolutely nothing about mobey, you did.

    • crazy_black_man-

      LOL. You thought the audience would cheer your name. Cracking me up! Vanity will ruin you if don’t learn to get a grip on reality one day, son.

  • crazy_black_man-

    No. We are the people you need to impress the most. Internet strangers. We can’t see your bow tie, penny loafer wearing , Carlton Banks looking, boring azz. Your money is your whole fake personality. So you have to constantly remind people to be impressed by your materialistic life. You’re a sad person with overwhelming depression and neediness to be accepted and validated by internet strangers. That’s sad. You seem very lonely and having money and no one left to impress but us is not helping you close that huge hole in your life. Poor guy.

    • efnet

      dude why are you still talking about money?

    • -youjustgotburned-

      “You’re a sad person with overwhelming depression and neediness to be accepted and validated by internet strangers.”

      Coming from you thats rich. You’ve have no room to judge others since you constantly harass and ridicule people over a plastic box you dont like and always tell them how, remind them how you have the best plastic box.

    • crazy_black_man-

      Stop your incessant whining little girl!

      You mean liked that?

  • Mr Xrat

    Looking at the blunder the Xbone brand remains despite Xgimps’ best attempt to damage control it, he won’t be the one introducing it.

  • Mark

    Lol
