Xbox boss Phil Spencer, who is now in charge of the division along with Xbox Live and Microsoft Games Studios, spoke to Polygon about the upcoming Xbox One line-up for E3, stating that it is “the best lineup of content in a long time.”
“We’re early on in the console generation and obviously Sony’s having a great launch. Console gaming is doing incredibly well right now. Six months ago, everybody wondered if console gaming was dead… but this is a long, multi-year generation and my fundamental belief is that great games create the best platforms.”
As for his new role within the company, Spencer stated, “With me you’re going to get a focus on gaming first and a best platform to play games on. It’s not a focus we ever lost but it’s one I’ll be accentuating at Microsoft. It’s really going to be a gaming-led focus with Xbox and my new role allows us to execute on that.”
Spencer also said he’s aware of the number of requests made to bring Shenmue 3 to the Xbox One. Whether it happens or not remains to be seen though.
