Phil Spencer: Xbox One Will Seem “Relevant Three, Four, Five Years From Now as it Did on Day One”

Microsoft Game Studios honcho Phil Spencer sees the upcoming years as a period of innovation, with great technologies impacting on the gaming market, but he’s not afraid of that, and thinks the Xbox One will stay relevant thanks to its computing power and the ability to connect to the internet. (Phil Spencer, Xbox One)

I don't know if anyone will catch the key word in the title? "Seem" relevant in three, four, five years. Meaning not really relevant from day one.

Does anyone understand the difference of "Seem", as oppossed to "Will"!? Nowhere did I state that these were Microsofts words, I merely pointed out a observation! It's not like if this was their true way of thinking, that it would make a difference anyway.

No that's not really what that means.

They already have a great amount of exclusives in the works, titanfall, quantum break, ryse, dr3, d4, crimson dragon, halo 5, sunset overdrive, ki, forza 5. Hope they keep it up like this

Killer you are about 2 months behind the times have you been on holiday with no internet or somthin?
Killjoy3000  +   705d ago
Ryse - Terrible, boring gameplay, looks like a 6-7/10 game
Titanfall - Multiplatform
Dead Rising 3 - Barely next gen, same as the other 2 with more zombies and a dash of Saints Row thrown in.
Sunset Overdrive - SUPER MEH
KI - Shitty Dev, looks average
Forza 5 - 14 tracks, 200 cars, lolz

Quantum Break - looks great, but we know next to nothing.
Halo 5 - Gonne be a great game, as usual.

enlighten me.
marcelliuss1  +   705d ago
The X1 will be a great console and with what they did with the 360 there are still great things to come. That's why I'm glad I'm gettin it day ONE.
thehitman  +   705d ago
Curious what was the last 3 exclusives you bought for xbox. Not trolling just really want to know.

Or you could have been playing BioShock, GTA v, bf/cod etc etc

Ya know... All the most popular games.. Lol.. People get too wrapped up in exclusives as the only reason that matter to choosing a platform
nukeitall  +   705d ago

Exactly, as long as I have games to play, I frankly don't care if they are exclusive or not.

If there are enough games to keep me busy, I'm happy especially if I get to enjoy those games and have killer features with snap mode!

Xbox On!
Xbox Play Titanfalls
Xbox Snap Skype!

and I'm set!
thehitman  +   705d ago
@ n4rc I didnt say anything was wrong w/ those titles. But when you say something is great and that it did great things you expect to have a reason that separates it from something else that has the same thing.
n4rc  +   704d ago
But when someone says they like Xbox better, it always boils down to exclusives... Because that's Sony's strength..

What if I prefer the ui? Achievements over trophies... The controller.. Kinect.. The online experience etc etc etc...

Exclusives are just games... Wanna know my last Xbox exclusive?

Gears 3... And it sucked.... Lol.. Before that was probably halo reach.

Yet my shelf has more games then I have time to play.. And I prefered to game on my 360 and actually sold my ps3 a couple months ago because I didnt use it anymore... Exclusives can be your main focus.. And that's cool.. But it isn't everyones

n4rc. What's the point of buying a console just for multiplats?
marcelliuss1  +   704d ago
@thehitman...the last three exclusives I got are Gears of War: Judgment, State of Decay, and Halo 4. I also just downloaded Alan Wake: American Nightmare and it's pretty good. Anything else?
n4rc  +   704d ago
Why not?

If exclusives don't interest you, then you aren't going to buy them..

They are just games.. being multiplat or exclusive has absolutely nothing to do with my buying decisions..

You act like exclusives are the only thing worth playing when i feel most are hugely overrated.. On both platforms
Blaze929  +   705d ago
lol so now you have a problem with the word "seem"? This Xbox One hate and over-analyizing just gets better each day. Hollywood couldn't come up with this stuff i tell ya!

Seem: "give the impression or sensation of being something or having a particular quality."
stuna1  +   705d ago
Hate you say? No! It's called seeing the "Forest despite the trees"! Any hate Microsoft has received is hate they've heaped upon themselves! You choosing to believe otherwise is your prerogative, but it more than plain to see them (Microsoft) tooting their own horn doesn't negate the fact that they are pretty much the only one doing so.
Anon1974  +   705d ago
Xbox One will seem as relevant 4-5 years down the road as it does today? But does it really seem that relevant today?

Ooohhhhh.... I gettcha. :)
user7402931  +   705d ago
well day one your multiplats are 720p. if 5 years will be relevant like day 1 you fed up.
thrust  +   705d ago
In 5 years xbox live will be even better all them dedicated servers.

exciting times for xbox live users.

true next gen online gaming.
Seafort  +   705d ago
What the hell do u think Gaikai is? A LAN party?

Sony is also prepared for online gaming too not just MS.

Most of PS3 online games had dedicated servers anyway. It's nothing special and if you have to mention it like it is then MS are in more trouble than I thought.
thrust  +   705d ago
You believe that if it makes you feel better, am going where I know it's good and only going to get better :)

Next gen online gaming no slap dash add on to try and keep up!
Lukas_Japonicus  +   705d ago
I should hope so too, i don't want to spend £430 on something that isn't going to be relevant a few years after i buy it.
DeadRabbits  +   705d ago
Worries me that he needs to convince people that the xbone will be relevant after 3 years!
DoctorJones  +   705d ago

Hmm.....you remind me of someone else that was on here, who closed his account. Gaelic_laoch I presume?
DeadRabbits  +   705d ago

We are legion for we are many!
christocolus  +   705d ago
yeah..just keep the great aa games coming in ,keep xbx live unique and running, get amazing kinect games and make sure halo5 blows our minds....
nategrigs  +   705d ago
I think a few AAA games in addition to their AA's would help
christocolus  +   705d ago
dont worry about that...ms has that covered this time .
GryestOfBluSkies  +   705d ago
he should probably aim for making it more relevant... especially in the context of the living room, which is their ultimate goal
lifeisgamesok  +   705d ago
MS says this is a 10 year plan and with Ryse and Forza being launch titles with those kind of visuals already... I believe them
Rickgrimes95  +   705d ago
Maybe if they keep telling us how great this console is long enough we'll start to believe it
LordMaim  +   705d ago
Hasn't worked so far.
Jury  +   705d ago
Considering how bad it's looking, this title seems very pessimistic
KiLLUMiNATi_89  +   705d ago
Xbox 1 potential is extremely high and weather some like it or not they'll have a successful gen again....
skydragoonity  +   705d ago
Alright then. I believe microsoft..................
deadie  +   705d ago
i dont.

hehehe... that's not exactly saying a lot considering the current state of it!

So are you saying in 3,4,5 years from now it will still be hated on, it will still under-perform & it will still be pushing unwanted features on to customers for their own corporate agenda???

It was my first thought when I read that title, "Jesus, I had hoped it would get better."
BobBelcher  +   705d ago
lol, when in doubt just talk about 720p. I tell you, if you're insecure about your investment in your console of choice it shows when you dog your preferred console's competition. Be secure in your investment and move along.
SpinalRemains138  +   705d ago
That is correct, Phil.

Today, it is running last generation visuals and is seemingly unimportant right now.

In 3 years it will be just as unimportant.
ruefrak  +   705d ago
The Xbox One will be just as relevant in five years as it is day one...
which is to say, not at all.
Hicken  +   705d ago
It's relevant. Just not for the right reasons.
SpinalRemains138  +   705d ago
Pretty much. Its the most expensive and the least impressive in terms of visuals and games.

Its basically a debacle.
