Xbox One Boss Phil Spencer Likes The Playstation Experience, Wants More XO Events

Spencer all but said there may be XO events but they need time and money.

Phil-Spencer

Late last week, Sony announced that it was going to be putting together yet another Playstation Experience this year. This year it will be taking place in San Francisco on December 5th & 6th and if last year’s event is any indication, it will include at least a couple of big announcements. Sony fans were huge fans of the PSX last year and it appears that Microsoft execs were also impressed by what was done. Phil Spencer, in particular is a fan of the way Sony is handling their business when it comes to the Playstation Experience.

The Xbox One chief took to Twitter in order to talk about what Sony is doing and that fact that he was a fan of the XO Events. Spencer made it clear that he would like to have more, perhaps as a kind of way to compete with the PSX. The XO events have apparently not gone away for the most part because Microsoft doesn’t think they work. Rather the time and expense of putting those events together became something that just wasn’t worth it. Spencer said that he would need to think about the tradeoffs before he went and schedules another XO Event.

Spencer went out of his way to make sure that he said some nice things about what Sony has put together saying, “yea, PSX seems well done and fans like the event. The idea is smart.” With all that in mind, it seems likely we will be seeing some new XO events in the future.

    Once again Microsoft stop copying other people ideas do your own thing,do your experience in Japan or china.

    • GamerJudge

      Are they copying something original or something that has already been out there for a very long time?

    • legacy

      Wow okay, i don’t remember anything like ps experience where the whole show is dedicated To one console,don’t think that happen before. e3 and gamescom is for all consoles. And this is no pc article

    • GamerJudge

      “show is dedicated To one console”
      Nintendo for starters but either way you are just grasping at straws doesn’t matter if they are doing an event just for themselves is not original so nothing is being copied.

    • legacy

      Whatever man

    • GamerJudge

    • GamerJudge

    • GamerJudge

      How predictable! I knew you were going to damage control and bring up the number of games the PS4 has because I proved you wrong time after time.

      Sorry to burst your moment of triumph (which you never had) I’m not the id*ot who said the Xbox One didn’t have games through the first half of 2015.

      #keepdamagecontrollingfantard

    • XbotMK1

      You can’t deny that the Xbox One has been dry all year.

      Ori and the Blind Forest, Neverwinter, World of Tanks, Fable Legends, and Gears Ultimate are on PC. Some of those will probably come to the PS4.

      Tomb Raider is a timed exclusive.

      Stop damage controlling for Microsoft.

    • GamerJudge

      It has not been dry and I gave prove, they may have been on PC but they weren’t on PS4.

    • XbotMK1

      So you’re saying that if Microsoft makes an Xbox experience event to compete with PlayStation Experience, then that is not copying?

      LOL GTFO!

    • GamerJudge

      No but that fact that tools like you say an event like PlayStation Experience is new, innovative and unique is BS.

    • GamerJudge

      In this date and age nothing the consoles have and what the companies behind them have done is original. Everything being done has already been done only difference is how they are named.

    • XbotMK1

      That is completely false. All you are doing is damage controlling for Microsoft. PlayStation Experience is unique out of the 3 console manufacturers. Many of the things Sony has done this gen are unique. Companies own patents on their ideas.

      Microsoft hasn’t really done much that is unique or innovative this generation. Mostly all they’ve done is backtrack, lie, and copy the fk out of everything Sony does. Microsoft has a long history of stealling ideas. They are not as innovative as fanboys pretend they are.

      That is why it really exposes the hypocrisy of Xbox fanboys and the media who bash PlayStation and everything Sony does, and then turn around and praise everything Microsoft does. Gamingbolt, IGN, Gamespot, Polygon, and most gaming news sites are guilty of this.

    • GamerJudge

      Kid take a hint nothing you say has any relevance. All you say is garbage and pure kiss up to anything Sony related. You are a PS Drone Corporate Slave Fanboy who doesn’t know any better. You are a lying, hypocrite piece of garbage this Earth had the bad chance to have.

      Either way please tell me what has Sony done that’s so unique.

    • XbotMK1

      Unique things that Sony created out of the other main console manufacturers:

      PS One era:

      – Dual Analog sticks for shooters (which Microsoft and Nintendo mimiced)
      – Dual built in rumble motors (which Microsoft mimiced)
      – CD ROM technology which allowed music playback(which Microsoft mimiced)

      PS2 era:
      – USB support
      – Hardrive expansion bay which allowed linux to be installed
      – PlayStation Eye Toy camera which allowed hands free motion gaming and voice interaction (which Microsoft mimiced with the Xbox Live Vision and Kinect)
      – DVD ROM which allowed music and video playback (which Microsoft mimiced)
      – (2003)Live TV DVR with the PSX (which Microsoft mimiced)
      – Portable movies and music with the PSP
      – Cross media bar on the PSX

      PS3 era:
      – (2006) Built in six axis motion sensing into the controller
      – (2006) Blu Ray ROM (which Microsoft mimiced)
      – Video editing and uploads (which Microsoft mimiced)
      – (2006) Remote Play which allowed you to stream music, movies, and games from your PS3 to your PSP or PC.

      – (2009) PlayStation Plus (which Microsoft mimiced)

      – PlayStation Home

      PS4 era:
      – Project Morpheus VR
      – Controller Touchpad
      – Share Button to allow quick video saves (which Microsoft has been trying to mimic)
      – Real player names (which Microsoft mimiced)
      – Dynamic Menu (which Microsoft is mimicing with the new Xbox One UI)
      – “Game Hubs” as Microsoft calls it, is really just a copy of the information that displays beneath each game on the PS4 Dynamic Menu.
      – Remote Purchases (which Microsoft mimiced)
      – Activity feeds (which Microsoft mimiced)
      – Players You May Know (which Microsoft mimiced)
      – Rating your friend’s activities (which Microsoft mimiced)
      – Joining a live streamer’s game, midstream (which Microsoft mimiced and is why Microsoft delayed their Twitch app in 2013)
      – Trophy Rarity (which Microsoft mimiced)

      There are many others. Microsoft mimiced many things, especially after the PS4 was revealed. Mainly social features, like video sharing. Microsoft has even stolen some of Sony’s marketing slogans such as “Sharing is Caring” and “Best Place to Play”. They’ve even coppied some of the games Sony offers up on PlayStation Plus. Microsoft has reached all new levels of low.

      I’m not saying Sony never coppied ideas in the past, but this generation Sony has created more new ideas while Microsoft has done very little besides backtrack and mimic Sony’s marketing, policies, and ideas. What has Sony taken from Xbox One?

    • GamerJudge

      I’m only going to talk about the PS4 era since the rest I have to do my homework but you are full of it NON OF THE THINGS THE PS4 IS DOING IS NEW OR UNIQUE!

    • XbotMK1

      Yes, they are. Sony did those things before Microsoft and Nintendo. You’re just denying it because you’re a fanboy.

    • GamerJudge

      I’m denying it because its not true! Not because I’m a fanboy! Sony didn’t create, invent, came up with any of those things! All those features have been in the market for a long time way before the ps4 was out.

    • XbotMK1

      Yes, they are. Sony did those things before Microsoft and Nintendo. You’re just denying it because you’re a fanboy.

    • legacy

      Hey everybody if you want to know the definition of a nut hugger look no further,gamer judge been hugging Microsoft balls so long he can’t see straight

    • XbotMK1

      Gamerjudge is just being a Microsoft defense drone. He’s begging for more Xbox events after he hyped up Gamescom and E3.

    • GamerJudge

      Prove it.

    • legacy

      Don’t argue with him he don’t got nothing to play but scream ride and he’s piss.

    • XbotMK1

      Check out this article so you can see Gamingbolt’s hypocrisy and Xbox One defense in the flesh.

      http://gamingbolt.com/phil-spencer-says-catching-ps4-sales-isnt-his-priority

      Gamingbolt: “You don’t want execs allways being reactive with their products to what their competitors are doing”

      A week later, Gamingbolt: “Microsoft should create an XO event to compete with PlayStation Experience”

      These websites are riding Microsoft hard.

    • Mark

      C’mon Legacy, only fanboys care about who’s copying who, and in reality, it’s MUCH better for u and me that they copy each other, along with their own unique features too. But personally, I don’t see how they can demo the same games from E3 if they do an XO event, it’d be kinda redundant..

    • legacy

      You right it’s good for everybody ,but there won’t be a xo we know what’s coming out from now to next summer.

    • Mark

      Yeah true but I think Phil was thinkin about next yr, it’s kinda too late for it in the fall.

    • freekface

      Your an idiot, everyone but you know MS release their big games in the last quarter of the year, actually come to think of it you obviously do know that.

      By the end of the year Xbox One will have more first party exclusives than Sony just as they did last year.
      What “First” party exclusives did Sony release this year ? LOL.

      Next year will be totally different though as Phil Spencer announced they will be launching their big titles throughout the year rather than the last quarter.

    • legacy

      Ok for the last time ps4 got a total of 647 games 77 are exclusive,now for the xbox1 that bs system have a total of 461 games and 21 exclusives count it 21 to sony 77.#stoptellinglies

    • freekface

      Stop talking rubbish, you know as well as I do you are not talking about AAA exclusives and it just shows how desperate you are to try and hide the fact that there is hardly any PS4 AAA first party exclusives.

      NAME ALL THE PS4 FIRST PARTY AAA EXCLUSIVES released this year up to the end of this year, we know what Xbox One still has to come this year so name some titles.

      By trying to tie in indie titles just makes you sound even more insecure, from November I expect you to count in all the Xbox One backward compatible console AAA exclusives to.

    • legacy

      Im not desperate i really don’t care,i just show you the total for both systems doesn’t matter if it’s this year or next it’s not that serious and the last i check indies are games to i got all the systems,you want to know all the exclusives go to Google you’ll get all your answers.and you got gears forza,and halo, tomb raider, star wars and fallout are going to sell the most then the drake collection, halo is dry,forza gets release every year nothing new there and the only people that want backwards compatible are the ones who can’t afford new up to date games and don’t got nothing to play.im done with this topic im going to play rocket league and helldivers might play some street fighter iv or maybe planet side 2,no god of war 3,maybe bloodborn, wait the street fighter v beta is back up,so is the black ops 3 beta?,i don’t know but have fun with what ya waiting for peace i got games to play.

    • freekface

      And of course Uncharted is dry and gets regular releases as does killzone, infamous etc, all stale now.

      Yes of course you don’t want backward compatibility on PS4 because the truth is you have to endlessly Pay to play PS3 games even if you have already Bought them, what a RIPOFF.

      Streetfighter is 3rd party not a Sony game it’s also not exclusive and the real funny thing is soon the Xbox will have PC TO Xbox One streaming so either way you will be able to play it on Xbox One.

      Bloodbourne NOT a Sony game it’s 3rd party and if your honest it’s just Dark Souls 2.5 and it only appeals to certain players…
      Planet side 2 is 3rd party Sony sold the company it’s also coming to Xbox not that I care it’s a FTP and I prefer World of tanks and Smite.

      You see you could not name one first party exclusive because Sony are spending what money they have left on buying up timed DLC and advertising rights.
      Good luck with that.

    • GamerJudge

      Never try to reason with someone like legacy.

    • Mark

      Haha. I try to show respect to everyone. There’s even some guys around here who’re loosening up on spitting venom (wont say their name tho) ha.

    • *Also On PC

      Maybe when Sony stops copying from Nintendo first. Space World was done well before PSX :^)

      https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/56e5ea7d592b1cb007ef0d482e533b7a848977f603de4786f801fd99af085328.jpg

    • legacy

      Nobody ask you,go back to playing with yourself

    • *Also On PC

      Sorry for pointing out Sony copies everything from Nintendo and the fact Nintendo had their own show, called Space World. Decades before PS Experience.

      Now I shall go back to playing games at 1080P 60FPS while you still have none as the PS4 has no games :^)

    • GamerJudge

      The truth blinds him sadly.

    • legacy

      You still not playing nothing,well also on pc plays with himself ask can you join him till gears of war comes out

    • GamerJudge

      Playing more than you, heck I bet I play more PS games than you. You are just like XbotMK1 a lot of talk but no do.

  • Ryan

    Sony is a joke. I love how u say they have hundreds of games. Yea all indies which nobody cares about. Even their own president said exclusives are scarce. ….

  • XbotMK1

    This is quite interesting and ironic. It looks like E3 and Gamescom weren’t enough to satisfy the Xbox fanboys and the media, so now they’re begging for Microsoft to copy PlayStation Experience. This comes after Xbox fanboys based Sony for Gamescom and E3.

    Does the patheticness of Microsoft and the Xbox brand have no limits?

  • legacy

    Xbox1 is trash no games to play ,ps4 is great a whole lot of games to play, pc players just like to look at their games,Nintendo have no third party games but what they have is still good

    • Terminator

      What a surprise another of lying, hypocritical, corporate slave, Sony D*ck Rider puppet talking out of his @ss…what else is new. You and XbotMk1 make a perfect couple.
