‘I’ll never feel strange promoting great games.’

Xbox head Phil Spencer has not attempted to keep it secret that he greatly dislikes the console warrior mentality that so many fans of video games so frequently exhibit. Discussions about games frequently devolve into inane, toxic, destructive chatter about what piece of plastic is better rather than the games themselves- and this is something that Spencer is not a fan of.

Now, he has reiterated his stance. When he took the time to congratulate the developers of Little Nightmares on their recent success, he was accused of console fanboyism on Twitter. Spencer sharply rebuked the accusation. “I’ll never feel strange promoting great games.  You should play it on the platform you own,” he said.

This, of course, isn’t the first time that Spencer has spoken out against console wars. And sadly, given the sad state of console fanboyism at the moment, it is unlikely to be the last, either.

  • Michael C

    But this site post articles that promote the behavior ….

    • Mark

      But does GamingBolt actually promote that stuff? I do agree that they’re inaccurate with their opinion pieces at times, but I don’t know Mike…..I’m on the fence here. Lol

    • Learned Handgun

      They do promote it. Their selection of article titles, wording, etc. is designed to inflame the console war and get clicks. They make their money from advertisements and that is determined in part by clicks, so it makes sense from a business perspective.

  • Troy Marcel

    Like the way he shut him down

    • crazy_black_man- ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      You were there? On Twitter? Reading Phil’s tweets and watching him scramble to denounce the console war because he’s getting his incompetent aas handed to him by Sony?

      Did you really like it?

    • Xbox live is full of violent racists like you.. no wonder in a couple of months the xbox shitpio will be the biggest flop in console gaming history.

      WARNING to other readers: do not support Microsoft! and definitely do not buy the Shitpio if you want to get rid of xbox bullys and racists like ‘DSpenc3’.

    • Smart guy

      Lol there’s racists all over the world this one person does not speak for the entire Xbox community kid lol everyone knows he’s s fool but you are too for calling a gaming community racist for one guy. Think before you type guy u are no better then he is

    • crazy_black_man- ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      LOL. Nope, this is Xbox Live in a nutshell. This clown might even be a Xbox Ambassador. I love his emotional reaction though.

    • Troy Marcel

      Dude you can’t say that.

    • Smart guy

      No he’s not lol

  • Mike Clyne

    As soon as any company is on the losing side of a console war, they’re suddenly preaching against it.
    If the day somehow arises and Xbox is selling better than Playstation some generation, let’s see if this is still the stance they take.
    I agree console bashing is stupid. I just don’t agree the corporations think so, since if they’re winning it gets people to take side and have brand loyalty, which is a dream come true for them.

    • Learned Handgun

      If it’s stupid, then it’s stupid regardless of who says it.

    • People who take part in the console war are mentally ill.

    • Old Skool

      I agree.

    • “As soon as any company is on the losing side of a console war, they’re suddenly preaching against it.”

      True story. As soon as any company is on the losing side of a console war, they stop releasing console sales numbers and they start crying about the fanboys on the other system. You know, kinda like what Phil is doing now.

    • Are you not aware of how Phil Spencer actively has denounced and torn apart xbox fanboys? Do you remember Crap Gamer?

      It’s not a matter of if they lose the console war or not. They will only hide numbers if they aren’t good numbers; it has nothing to do with an irrational console war.

    • D Spenc3


    • Stop supporting Microsoft and the xbox people! We need to get rid of these haters! PS4 for life!!

    • kma99

      Of course they are compromised because you are tge culprit. Now log in your alts and proceed to upvote again.

      Terroristic Threat Law and Legal Definition

      A terroristic threat is a crime generally involving a threat to commit violence communicated with the intent to terrorize another, to cause evacuation of a building, or to cause serious public inconvenience, in reckless disregard of the risk of causing such terror or inconvenience. It may mean an offense against property or involving danger to another person that may include but is not limited to recklessly endangering another person, harassment, stalking, ethnic intimidation, and criminal mischief.

      The following is an example of a Texas statute dealing with terroristic threats:


      (a) A person commits an offense if he threatens to commit any offense involving violence to any person or property with intent to:

      cause a reaction of any type to his threat[s] by an official or volunteer agency organized to deal with emergencies;
      place any person in fear of imminent serious bodily injury;
      prevent or interrupt the occupation or use of a building; room; place of assembly; place to which the public has access; place of employment or occupation; aircraft, automobile, or other form of conveyance; or other public place;
      cause impairment or interruption of public communications, public transportation, public water, gas, or power supply or other public service;
      place the public or a substantial group of the public in fear of serious bodily injury; or
      influence the conduct or activities of a branch or agency of the federal government, the state, or a political subdivision of the state.

    console wars are stupid because none of you fanboys are getting any of the money you are bragging about… also competition means US the CONSUMERS you know the ones who actually spend the money… WE WIN…. bunch of idiots.

    • Smart guy


  • He is only saying that because Philly is on the weaker console this generation hahahah!

    Watch when the Scorpio arrives how they are going to milk the “Most powerfull console in the world” slogan..

  • One With Shadows

    In other words…”No mas, no mas”. Or “Uncle Uncle!” Or “Please God no more!” Or…well, I’m sure you get my drift.
