Phil Spencer: 'We’re only platform shipping games on PC, cloud and console simultaneously'
 

 
The Xbox boss reaffirms Microsoft's commitment to PC with a shot at PlayStation's porting strategy.

Xbox boss Phil Spencer blasted PlayStation's PC strategy in a media briefing earlier this week, accusing Sony of double-dipping with its exclusives.

In recent years, Xbox has made a pretty successful pivot to treating PC as a first-party platform. Most, if not all, first-party games hit the Windows 10 store alongside their console release, with the horrors of Games For Windows Live now a distant memory.

Without naming names, Spencer pointedly compared Xbox's current strategy to certain rivals. PlayStation has only slowly begun to bring its first-party games to PC, starting with Horizon Zero Dawn —which took 3 years to leave console exclusivity.

"We’re the only platform shipping games on PC, cloud and console simultaneously," Spencer boasted. "Others bring console games to PC years later, not only making people buy their hardware up front but then charging them a second time to play on PC.

"We have a huge growth opportunity on PC. We expanded to simultaneously shipping our first-party games on both console and PC. And last year we more than doubled our first-party retail games sales on PC. And we’re also one of the biggest third-party publishers on Steam."

Sony has expressed a desire to bring more of its console exclusives to PC. Zombie road trip Days Gone made the jump earlier this year, with rumblings that Uncharted 4 will eventually do the same. No word on a Bloodborne port, though. Sorry.

Spencer is bullish about Xbox's future on PC, telling us to expect an "amazing slate" of titles from both Xbox Games Studios and Bethesda over the coming year. But he also seems excited for cloud gaming in the PC space. Considering the difficulty in getting new hardware these days, this may become a very tantalising option indeed.

"With cloud gaming, we now have the ability to bring these great AAA-quality games to the hundreds of millions of below-spec Windows PCs that to date haven’t been able to play the hit games that everybody sees."

Imagine trying to dictate how other gaming companies should release their games
This n*gga throwing shade at Sony for making consoles their main selling point and making games exclusives to console sound like its a bad thing

The reason they release their sh*t day and date on PC and everywhere else is coz the Xbox community dont buy their sh*t... Now they're releasing mediocre sh*t on like 5 platforms and they're still last when it comes to marketshare

Nah you know Sony will admit they're doing the same sh*t 8-10 months from now and the same folks dissing Microsoft for it will be trying to rationalize why Sony's doing it


Seems to be the pattern as of late

a second time? people aren't forced to re-buy it on PC if they already bought it once before all it does it open it up to people who previously didn't have the option to play it



also what does phil spencer know about releasing and managing high quality games it's easy to keep games that don't sell and are unwanted on some cheap value menu service

I think it'll definitely be MS's best e3 in a long time given how bad their past ones have been


and they'll finally show off games people care about although I think the bulk of their bigger titles are years away still


that chinless salamander looking dude jason schrier, or w/e his name is, said that starlight is an end of 2022 or beginning of 2023 title meaning, if he's right, then something like ES6 is probably an end of gen or next generation title


nevertheless, I think MS knows how badly they need this e3 so I don't see them flopping like the last couple years

Bro tell this n*gga the best way for game companies to be pro consumer is to release a steady stream of good games.

I’m tired of these trash a*s narratives. Make a fu*king game that will distract from life for a couple hours minimum bruh. sh*t ain’t rocket science lol
