Phil-Spencer

Phil Spencer is a man of many responsibilities ever since he took over as head honcho for the Xbox division at Microsoft. Things have turned around significantly for Microsoft’s Xbox One since then, though it still lags behind the PS4 in sales. With E3 2015 coming up in the next few months, how are plans coming along for the convention?

Spencer revealed on Twitter that as of now, “Planning is going well. And with E3 one week later than norm and Gamescom one week earlier feels like summer is one big show.”

As for updates on the Xbox 360 for when Windows 10 rolls around, Spencer revealed that the company is working on keeping the previous gen console in sync with the Xbox One. “We’ll work to keep the Xbox Live community together. Some things are different on 360 but goal is to keep in sync.”

Finally, if you enjoyed this past weekend’s “Try Before You Buy” offer with Sunset Overdrive, then you’ll be happy to hear that more such offers are being considered. “I think you’ll likely see this with other games. EA Access is this kind of program.”
