View Full Version : After Admitting PS4 Has "Huge Lead," Xbox Boss Says Company Is Focused on Gamers

It is just like the early days of PS3 when everyone went for Xbox 360 instead.


Following his recent comments about how the Xbox One may never outsell the rival PlayStation 4, Xbox boss Phil Spencer has again broached the subject of Microsoft's vision for the Xbox platform and how this is affected by the competition. In short, he says it's not. Read on for Spencer's new take on the subject.

According to Spencer, he's more interested in making the Xbox One the best console it can possibly be. "Our long-term Xbox vision isn't about competitors, it's about gamers," Spencer said to a fan on Twitter. "We'll stay focused there."

He added: "Team is 100% committed to making XB1 a great gaming console. Games, OS, XBL, that's the focus."

In terms of games, Microsoft says the Xbox One will welcome the best lineup of games since possibly 2007, while the company will launch the New Xbox One Experience dashboard update in November. Among other things, this introduces backwards compatibility support for Xbox 360 titles.

Speaking frankly earlier this month, Spencer said something similar. After admitting that the PS4 has a "huge lead" over the Xbox One in the sales race, Spencer said, "We're not motivated by beating Sony, we're motivated by gaining as many customers as we can." Get the full story here.

Before that, Spencer said he's not interested in engaging much with the Xbox One vs. PS4 debate.

"I've said before, the one thing that I probably find a little distasteful in the discourse around games is the divisiveness that people try to build between platforms," he said in September.

Out of the 3 consoles, I have to admit, I'm enjoying my Wii U more. Next is PS4. I can't believe how addicting Mario Maker is.

Out of all the publishers, I have to admit, I'm enjoying Nintendo games more. Next is PS4. I can't believe how addicting Mario Maker is.


As Nintendo games is the only thing Wii U gets, enjoying Wii U over any console is literally enjoying Nintendo games more so than any company work out there.

Nothing wrong with that thu, I love Nintendo

A good start for them would be to stop releasing first party games that are broken unless you download massive day one patches.

Looks like I'll be having a Wii U Christmas this year. Again. Fatal Frame, Xenoblade, Splatoon.
