Xbox One Boss Phil Spencer has bought a lot of positive things ever since he transitioned to his new position. Talking to GameTrailers in the on going live stream, Spencer was asked a few tough questions.

On why players should buy an Xbox One over a PS4:

“One of the things that I am really proud of is the number of games that we have shown here to talk about live innovation, like dedicated servers or drivatars, we showed Crackdown at the end of the shown which is one of my favorite games of all time. The destruction that Dave Jones is building using the cloud, that allows to do things on a console that have never been done before will be really special.”

On multiplatform games looking better on the PS4 and the work they have the console’s GPU:

“I think it’s really important that we are a great development platform for developers and you might have seen that in our June update we did some work on the GPU. Its been a good uptake from our 1st party partners, developers and studios. They have been working on these games that will be launching this fall. We have had great feedback from Bungie for Destiny and the impact it is going to have on the resolution. Being the best place for developers, live service and core development platform is critical for our success.”

On people who bought the Xbox One with the Kinect for $499:

“First all of thank you. I appreciate them signing in the beginning and I want them to know that with me being the head of Xbox that Kinect is critical to our long term success. It fundamentally is. Our choice to give the consumer a price choice,  I think in the long run it will be good thing for Xbox as well as Kinect.”
