I wonder if anyone is ever going to ask if Xbox Live will create a Paywall to access all the features?

Do I still need to Pay for Live to access Netflix, Multiplayer or even to watch my cable channels, lol?

Wow. I take what I said about Phil's confusing people back.

That was a great interview when you don't take it out of context.

Eurogamer played hardball and Phil gave it right back to them.

@ MasFlow

I think it was inferred in another interview that Gold will still be the same.

Are you THIS delusional? Seriously?

Root1829d ago


I know's bloody hilarious

Just like that...he's forgiven despite him still coming off as confusing. He's just telling people what they want to hear because of damage control, it's his job, he's making the best out of a crappy situation to get some positive reception going.

No wonder Microsoft are the way they are with fans like that

Evildead dunno what hit him.. If you see him walking the streets do not approach he is dazed, confused and after the madness that is Xbox one... Dangerous !!!

The PR spin from Ms would make my mums salsa group proud!!

Majin-vegeta1828d ago

Never in my life have i seen someone literally bend over for a company and accept all this BS.

'The PR spin from Ms would make my mums salsa group proud!!'

LMFAO. That was a classic. Kudos.

I simply said Phil gave a great Eurogamer interview. Which he did.

If that's all it takes to offend the usual suspects to call out names then..stay mad. lol.


rainslacker1828d ago

I think the interviewer asked some good questions, and good follow up ones, but Phil's responses were all PR speak. The only thing in the interview I liked that he said was about the way they're handling indie/XBLA games. The rest was just spin.

It doesn't look like Sony lost much when Harrison left.

Phil is completely in full PR mode and not at all convincing me . Especially with ludicrous example such as Office 365 , when being told how horrible the Game for Windows experience is . he is obviously dancing around and avoiding .

However kudos for the interview , it's the first time in the decade i've seen someone try to ask such tough and direct questions . And truly call a company on the crap they do , right in front of their PR rep .

One glance at IGn with their silly "Xbox One's Kinect Is Legitimately Awesome " title and tone and you see the difference in professionalism

It's a good interview...surprising since it comes from Eurogamer

Off topic but Phil looks like an Observer from FRINGE


dedicatedtogamers1829d ago

Eurogamer gave no quarter.

I might actually start visiting their site regularly and giving them ad revenue. They actually put the screws to Phil.


Eurogamer asks "you say Kinect 2.0 is better, but you are promising the same stuff that you failed to deliver with Kinect"

Phil: "well, you see, Kinect 2.0 is better is better. And since it is better, you have to realize, that it will be better"

"Our goal is to make it really customer-centric"

what a bunch of shit

"really simple and really understandable"

clearly they are doing a very good job at that, except for people being confused.

Unicron1829d ago

Games locked to accounts is not customer-centric.

SexyGamerDude1829d ago

Phil needs to just stop talking. The more I hear from him, the more the XboxOne turns me off.

MadMen1829d ago

Phil is a pimp, he tried to warn SONY on the PS3 clearly said the vision was a total mess, unlike the PS1 which he was almost entirely in charge of.

thelaughingwiseman1829d ago

That interview was really confusing.

Agent_00_Revan1829d ago

That's the point. Smoke and mirrors.
