Phil Spencer Will ‘Absolutely’ Buy The NES Mini, Greenberg Says They Have ‘Big Plans’ For SDCC
Spencer sounds off on the big news of the day.
The big news today was that against all odds, Nintendo will be launching a new console this Holiday season after all- it just won’t be the NX. Instead, they will be launching the NES Classic Mini, a re-release of their first console, and the one tat revolutionized the gaming industry, bundling it with 30 games, all for a price point of $60.
Speaking on Twitter, Phil Spencer, head of Xbox, confirmed that he will definitely buy the NES Mini, noting a necessity to keep older games playable. He also mentioned that an Xbox app on Mac could happen, but right now it is just a question of development priorities. How that would work, especially since the Xbox app is an integral component of the Xbox Anywhere ecosystem, is anybody’s guess (and really just a hypothetical question at this point).
Finally, Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg also confirmed that Xbox has plans for San Diego Comic Can this year, that they will be sharing soon. I don’t think one can expect any new announcements from Xbox at Comic Con, but at the very least, there should be some upcoming Xbox games playable, if nothing else.
