Following his statement that Sony is buying a number of third party exclusives and deals for PS4, Xbox boss Phil Spencer was called out on Twitter for his “hypocritical” remarks.

Forgetting that the remarks were made in response to why Xbox One has less third party stuff going on compared to PS4, Spencer said, “No fingers pointed. I was asked a question, which I clarified, and then I answered. Buying 3rd party deals is just a choice.”

Spencer was also praised for the Gamescom showing and responded that it was “Real team effort. Very proud of the teams and the energy the fans brought to the show.”

With regards to other games and pressers, particularly EA, Spencer said that concerning Star Wars Battlefront, “Rogue Squadron was best Star Wars space combat franchise Imo. If Battlefront can hit that level + on ground combat, huge.”

Spencer also liked Coldwood’s Unravel, stating that it, “looks like a game I’ll be playing. Nice demo.”

DICE was also praised for Mirror’s Edge Catalyst. “Mirrors Edge is one I’m really looking forward to, demo looks great.”

Finally, social marketing manager Graeme Boyd revealed that the Microsoft Gamescom booth is now open. Playable games on the floor include Halo 5: Guardians, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Forza Motorsport 6 and much more.
