Spencer Comments On Sony’s Absence At Gamescom, 60fps Does Not Mean Great Games And More
Also a certain indie policy has been relaxed for a developer.
Xbox boss Phil Spencer has once again taken to Twitter to hint new information about his next set of plans and announcements. First of all, he believes that having 60 frames per second in the game does not make a better game. When bugged by fans about the lack of Xbox One games that support 60 frames per second on the console, he stated that there are a lot of games on the console that support that standard but one should not define a game’s quality by resolution or frame rate.
Moving ahead, he also commented on the recent announcement that Sony won’t be attending Gamescom. He stated. “I saw that news. Makes sense, E3 and GC are very close this year, more challenging on news. Paris show is a good show.” Spencer’s comment here makes a ton of sense since E3 is taking place later and Gamescom is happening a bit earlier than their usual dates.
He also revealed that he will be at Gamescom this year, indicating that Microsoft itself will be attending the show in Cologne. Furthermore, it seems that Microsoft have relaxed their ID@Xbox Policy for Lab Zero Games. The company tweeted to Spencer and asked him whether they can have a chat to end a certain policy. Spencer stated that: “I’m glad this worked out. Happy to get your input on how we run ID@Xbox. DM me.” We are not sure what that policy is but one can assume that it’s ID@Xbox controversial parity clause. We have followed up with Lab Zero Games to get more information on this.
