For all the talk about this being the last cycle of console gaming and how the future will change things, there’s no denying the immense success of the PS4 and Xbox One in today’s world. This only goes to show that console gamers are an audience unto themselves and people like Xbox boss Phil Spencer know it.

On speaking to The Verge and being asked whether Xbox would live on as an app or brand rather than a console, Spencer replied, “No. I fully expect that you’ll see another console from us. Our best customers are Xbox console customers, and I want to keep those people engaged both on the Xbox One and anything we might do in the future. I’m 100 percent committed to that.

“I don’t want to dilute what the Xbox console customer feels. I want to expand what we’re able to do for more customers.”

Xbox executive Shannon Loftis also said that with regards to the future of gaming, Microsoft wanted to make it “more inclusive across the board” and that along with controller-based games, the company was looking into “as many ways to make all of our experiences relevant across all of our platforms as we possibly can.”

    Hardware refreshes are always welcome, especially since there’s no end of whining about the specs and resolution… =

    “Xbox boss Phil Spencer says he “fully expects” another Xbox console.”

    Well there you have it, if you thought this was the last Xbox console think gain. Though I would like Microsoft to go full PC…

    Xbox on PC I can see it now:

    Xbox Live will be the equivalent of Steam (so free ONLINE!) but it will still have its monthly or yearly subscription system to get those AAA or AA or whatever games for free, like steam it will have discounts for free without the need of subscription but those who are subscribed will get double the discounts and just like steam it will have its exclusives that are only available on the Xbox Live store. If Microsoft wants they could do Xbox Steam style Machines so casuals who aren’t good with PC’s can still get those Xbox games while at the same time getting PC games. If they can find a way where people can share their games, be it physical or digital then that would be great.

    We wanted a tv focused system.They only listened to PS4 users that didn’t want that.

    I reckon it’s the second to last console gen.

    In 10-15 years we will all be streaming no more consoles or PCs.

      You can’t get rid of PC’s. Microsoft may drop support for the PC as we know it(desktop computing), but all the PC gamers will move over to Linux. Linux isn’t going to stop making OS’s that you can actually own. Granted, PC gaming will become a niche thing, but still always an option. There’s also Steam OS, which I’m sure will always support both, streaming and personal computing.

      Microsoft and Sony might be one of those Corporations that say, “it’s my way or the highway…this is how it is,” but there are still those who exercise and recognize morality and personal privacy.

      I’m surprised Zuckerberg doesn’t have a privacy invading “social” OS, at this point. He’s all about being at the center of everyone’s affairs, pulling down their pants and delivering the shaft.

      You mean Cloud computing like Crackdown 3, Drivatars, Physics Rendering, etc

    • Riggybro

      Yes. That is a hint of it.
      But I meant more like PSNow where everything is offloaded. And we have a subscription to stream into our (smart) tvs.

    “Fully expects.” Weird statement from the head of Xbox considering the Xbone started development at this point in the 360’s life.
