Xbox Exec Phil Spencer Speaks About "Hardware Advantages" Over PS5

Developers are going to adopt with the one with lower specs anyway, so doesn't really matter on hardware power, it's the software that matters.

Xbox Exec Phil Spencer Speaks About "Hardware Advantages" Over PS5

Phil Spencer says he "felt good" after watching Sony's recent showcase because he knows what Microsoft has cooking.





Xbox executive Phil Spencer has commented on Sony's recent PlayStation 5 showcase, stating that the competitor did a "good job," while also acknowledging that the Xbox Series X has "hardware advantages" over Sony's next-generation console.

"As a competitor, it's great to have them out there now so we kind of know what the program is, we see the device, we see the games," Spencer said during the recent GameLab event, as reported by VideoGamesChronicle.


Spencer says he "felt good" after watching the PS5 event because he thinks Microsoft's own Xbox Series X stacks up well against Sony's machine.

"Just being honest, I felt good after seeing their show," Spencer said. "I think the hardware advantages that we have built are going to show up as we're talking more about our games and frame rates and other things."

Spencer went on to say that he feels "really good" about the Xbox Series X launch lineup, especially after watching Sony's show where it announced titles like Horizon: Forbidden West, Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, and Gran Turismo 7, among others.

"So I thought they did a good job," Spencer said of Sony's PS5 showing. "I thought they do what they do very well and they did that, but when I think about the position that we're in, with the games that we're going to be able to show and how they're going to show up, and the hardware advantage that we have, I think we're in a very good position."

Microsoft's next big Xbox Series X event is coming in July, and Microsoft will use it to showcase some of its upcoming exclusives, with Halo Infinite leading the way. Spencer said he thinks people "are really going to be pleased" with the show, following the lackluster program in May.

Their low latency tech might be more important than their power advantage. If every cross platform games looks about the same but feels better to play on xbox that could be huge.

Honestly, and do you believe them after the "power of the cloud"?

I'm not entirely sure what you're talking about. Are you talking about the things they said about cloud computing being mixed with regular games like in Crackdown 3? If so I had a feeling the logistics of that would cause it to be left by the wayside. Low latency tech on the other hand, well it's either done and ready to ship or it's complete bs. Either is possible but that seems like a strange thing to lie about so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt, at least for the sake of discussions, until we can feel it first hand.
