Microsoft is committed to making Xbox One a great gaming console and no more games to be added to backwards compatibility until the feature launches, says Phil Spencer.
Xbox One boss, Phil Spencer has assured players that Microsoft’s long term focus is not on its competition but instead they have their sights set on the players. That is a pretty interesting statement since the Xbox One, despite having some amazing first party and second party titles for the next few months, is lagging in sales compared to the PS4.
Taking to Twitter, Spencer clarified his recent comments regarding whether the Xbox One can overtake the PS4 in sales. Concerned fans asked him whether he has already accepted defeat to which he stated that the “Team is 100% committed to making XB1 a great gaming console. Games, OS, XBL, that’s the focus.” He also stated that their “long term Xbox vision isn’t about competitors, it’s about gamers. We’ll stay focused there.”
So far they are doing a great job with a strong line up of games for the rest of 2015 and 2016, and with a new bundle scheme, Xbox One is expected to garner some momentum this holiday season. On a related note, Spencer also revealed that Microsoft has no plans to release anymore backward compatability games until the feature launches later this month. Whether this is a good thing is purely a subjective matter but may be Microsoft wants to polish up the feature further before they release anymore games.
