Phil Spencer does believe that IP that Xbox owns is critical.
With the PlayStation Experience over, Xbox division head Phil Spencer took to Twitter to provide his own feedback and information on the event.
For instance, with the announcement of Street Fighter 5 for the PS4 and PC, and whether it would arrive for Xbox One, Spencer said, “Business deals happen. We won’t do all of them. When we have a 1st party franchise in a genre I’d rather invest in ours.” Spencer also added that, “I agree, there is a mix of deals to do but making sure we own IP XBOX gamers love is critical imo.”
As for what Microsoft had planned in light of so many announcements from Sony, Spencer said that, “PSX was a nice event, good way for Sony to celebrate 20 years. I watched, it was well done. I feel good about 2015 for XBOX.”
He also made an excellent point when he said that many of the announcements didn’t have ship dates. “I didn’t see ship dates on everything in PSX but I know what our plan is and I think XBOX fans will have a fun 2015.”
