Phil Spencer Teases Microsoft’s E3 Games Line-up, ‘Creativity And Diversity This Year Is Fantastic’

‘It’s going to be a great E3.’

Posted By | On 27th, Apr. 2017 Under News | Follow This Author @Pramath1605

For Microsoft, this E3 is important- Sony is the strongest it has ever been, and Nintendo is resurgent. This means that what was initially a single front war is now a two front one for them. So of course, they need to have something meaningful planned for E3, right?

Phil Spencer, head of Xbox, was asked about Microsoft’s E3 plans during an interview with Xbox On, and he shared some thoughts on what to look forward to.

‘I think the game lineup this year across the board is fantastic,’ he said to Youtube channel Xbox On. And I think Scorpio will be the best console to go play these games on. But when I think about just the games we’ve heard about from first and third parties, it’s going to be such an incredible year… I know we say that every year, but I’ve had some opportunity to look at some of the third party games, which are coming together so well. I’m obviously playing our first party games. And I think the creativity and diversity this year is fantastic. Something like Destiny 2 is coming, I was over at Bungie two weeks ago, and I got to play a little bit, and it got me back into the first game.

‘But I think the games that are coming out, the new Star Wars game, Red Dead, some other stuff that’s not announced yet, the new Mordor game… I just think this year, where last year was a lot of shooter games, which I think is great, and I know Destiny is a shooter too, but there’s lots of other kinds of content too, which I think is great. It’s gonna be a great year and a great E3.’

Now, while I agree with a lot of what he is saying, and it’s great that these wonderful games will be the best on Xbox, this answer does worry me, because it seems to almost be drawing attention away from exclusives and first party games. I hope that simply showing some (admittedly great) third party games, playing best on Scorpio, is not Microsoft’s plan for E3 and for Scorpio- that would put them in a world of trouble.

    But none of it is exclusive to your console Phil. You’re just highlighting 3rd party games that everybody will get a chance to play. Who are you trying to fool? Don’t you have any major exclusives to talk about? Games that will make Scorpio a must have console vs a PS4 Pro? I’m thinking that E3 is gonna absolutely suck for Xbox fans. But that’s just me. I know they are used to it already. Too bad Scorpio wont have these PS4 exclusive games. My PS4 Pro will be ready for them.

      That games aren’t exclusive but still Xbox Scorpio will be best hardware to play them. Better textures, better performance, better resolution. Faster hardware is better for multiplatform games.

      PS4 Pro:
      – GPU 4.2 TFLOPS
      – Memory 8 GB (5 GB available for games)
      – Memory speed 217 GB/s
      – CPU: 2.1 Ghz

      Xbox Scorpio:
      – GPU 6.0 TFLOPS
      – Memory 12 GB (9 GB available for games)
      – Memory Speed 326 GB/s
      – CPU: 2.3 GHz

    • crazy_black_man-

      Best hardware to play them? That is debatable. Have you ever owned an Xbox branded console? They have NEVER been the best hardware to play anything on. Xbox consoles/controllers are known to break faster than glass. I expect to see Scorpio refurbs on UPS trucks approx 2 months after launch.

      And seriously, are you talking about 3rd party multiplayer games again when Xbox fans are starving for some good single player games?

      Does Phil even have a clue as to why the PS4 is spanking the Xbox One’s a ss?

      Here is hint: It has absolutely nothing to do with 3rd party multiplayer games. Lets try this again.

      stop the madness, pony.

    • Cenk Algu

      OMG!!!!!!Little fake Rat going too far with his lies hahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Dougdec92

      The PC has up to 8.9teraflops and even in sli, owning 8xboxones or 7 xboxone s…..7ps4s and 2ps4 pros with even better CPUs but the best games they’ve are RTS and mobas and mmorpgs with cutscene graphics better than the game itself, surprise us with some games at E3 because Nintendo is owning both the ps4 and Xbox with just Zelda.

    • Wei Feng

      They say the station of the play 5 does the 10TFops.

      Sony embosses the specificion of scoropio

    • Wei Feng

      They are speaking well of the PS5.

      Mush shame in Scorpio sales for the micosoft

    • Tomaterrrx


      First, Sony hasn’t announced PS5. Second, Scorpio hasn’t even been released yet.

    • Wei Feng

      My English has cause the coma of the white boy when I talk

    • Tomaterrrx

      Huh? I really don’t understand what you are trying to say.

    • Riggybro

      PS Pro has 5.5GB available for games.

      Scorpio has 8 GB available for games.

      (2.5 GB difference).

    • Cenk Algu

      and it is a pretty big difference under metal codes hah!

    • Dougdec92

      Oh let me help you friend…lol, cuphead, crackdown 3, and a certain zombie game maybe a future halo game….the above Sony games need a 2min trailer each to own E3

    • crazy_black_man-

      Just a trailer. That’s why MS is doing theirs on a Sunday.

    • TwinStripeUK

      Your list:
      1) Just a trailer
      2) Just a trailer
      3) Just two trailers
      4) Just a tech demo
      5) Just a trailer
      6) Just a tech demo
      7) Just a re-hash of last year’s title
      8) Barely even a trailer

      I can watch all of those on my Xbox One, let alone a PS4..

  • Luke Skywalker

    Lol that crazy black dude has been on a rampage of late. When E3 comes around guys I think we need to have a defibrillator ready for him cause he might have an heart attack

    • crazy_black_man-

      E3 will be essentially over on the Saturday before Microsoft debuts a Xbox Scorpio console with no games, after Sony shows their upcoming extended exclusive library, and strong 3rd party support.

    • Psionicinversion

      exclusive library to hit in 2020 lol

    • Smart guy

      Dumb black dude has already pissed himself scared and is now too busy trying to revamp for semi pro e3 🙂

  • Wei Feng

    Great family dishonours to own the xbox!

  • crazy_black_man-

    Of you re a PS4/PS4 Pro gamer, then you probably wouldn’t buy a Scorpio for what games Xbox has to offer, but what’s truly sad is how MS is trolling Xbox One, and Xbox One S owners with the Scorpio. That best place to play argument is a slap in the face to their 3 year old consoles. At least Sony was smart enough not to market the PS4 Pro to the end that it chokes out their support for the PS4, which is STILL a better product than the current Xbox line of consoles. Phil either doesn’t have a clue, or he doesn’t give a damn about the current community in favor of pushing the new system into their hands.

    • Timothy Burchell

      Really bro just gonna say it. I own a Xbox One (Day One), PlayStation 4 Pro, Wii U, and a gaming PC and to be honest I play my Xbox One the most as it is my fav of the group that doesn’t make me right or wrong seeing it is totally up to the individual. I will be upgrading my XB1 to the Scorpio as I did my regular PS4 to the Pro. Xbox One has so many great games as does the PlayStation 4 and only blind fanboyism will keep you from playing and enjoying them for what they are GAMES not life or death on what system you play your games on. I even really enjoy my Wii U much better system then they make it out to be.

    • crazy_black_man-

      So you seem to have, and play your games on ALL the consoles.

      And your point is…?

      I didn’t get anything from what you said outside of the fact that you re probably severely overweight, you play way too many videogames, and you don’t care about getting laid. Can you confirm or deny my suspicions?

    • Rasta4

      You are a desperate Sony licking fruitcake. You are embarassing yourself so badly that it’s embarassing me !

  • Mr Xrat

    Teasing E3 yet again, the usual hallmark of another dead first half of the year. And of course, that E3 will be another mediocrity that’ll have Xgimps screaming their heads off for a few weeks but changes nothing.

    Funny how Phil gives more interviews than releases games.

    • Cenk Algu

      Again totaly the same upvoters,i wonder why? hahahaha!!!!!!

    • Mr Xrat

      Stay mad, Cronk. 🙂

    • Cenk Algu

      hahah poor kid ;(

    • Dougdec92

      Then again I thought he was bringing an epic comeback

  • Rasta4

    Pramath….Can we please ban these “Mr Xrat” and “Crazy Black Man” mental cases. They are Sony licking fruitcakes that click on every Xbox article to mindlessly bash it. It’s getting old now.

    Thanks !! Love the site.

  • SteveG

    Mental rat is mad…I would be too with Sony prividing this crap…

    No native 4k games (some as low as 720p on the pro), no back compat, a $500 PSVR lie, inferior multiplats, no upgrade to shader model 6 textures, no improvements on 1080p TVs, no EA access, gimped mod support, no 4k 60fps game capture, no dedicated servers, no game pass downloading service, no 4k bluray, no digital refunds….and NO MULTIPLAYER GAMES as good as Xbox’s. Single player one and done trade ins are a bore !

    • Mr Xrat

      Retarded woodpecker is being a r**ard again. It gets bad for you when facts upset you. 🙂
