Meet The Gaming Guy Who Is Now Running All Of Xbox

KT:Ten months since the Xbox One was revealed at an event that focused a lot on the platform's non-gaming aspects—TV, sports, TV, sports, you might remember—Microsoft's got a gaming guy in charge of the platform.

Phil spencer totally deserves this. Sadiya Nadella definitly made the right choice..... Congrats Phil, congrats to the entire xbox team.

It's amazing to step back and see how far Microsoft and the Xbox brand has come since last year's E3.

bro if they bring J Allard back then OMGz

maniacmayhem1270d ago

Seriously, if they brought back J Allard that would put Xbox over the top.

Good luck to this guy, he has a long ways to go cleaning up Mattrick's mess.

christocolus1270d ago

That would be insane..i would go out and buy another xbox one...lol.

"But Xbox One is our most important gaming asset to date. [We want to] make sure we're completely focused on that gaming customer, that core gaming fan. Making sure of that, that's what I'm going to bring to this position is a focus on gaming for Xbox One. The entertainment features that we have on Xbox One are important, but those can't come at a cost for what we do for the core gamer."

Lol He mentioned gaming like 5 times here.

Because he learned from Don's mistake. Remember TV/Sports/Xbox Go home?

This should be good for us. Xbox does better, forcing Sony to do better = happy gamers. They got rid of that Nokia dude, hopefully this move wasn't just to ease our suspicions of selling xbox

Silver3601270d ago

Now we know why Whitten left. He knew Phil was getting this job.

Agree definitely the best choice. A proper gamer who should push the company through the slightly rough start.

amiga-man1270d ago

Slightly? talk about an understatement

dodgemoose1270d ago

Have they or have they not sold millions of consoles? Multiple times as many as 360s sold in the same time period?

They've had a slightly rough start. It's not bloody doom and gloom as you obviously wish to believe.

MasterCornholio1270d ago (Edited 1270d ago )

So did they sack Elop?

Because if they did then that's great.

NYC_Gamer1270d ago

He's still with the company but he won't be in charge of the gaming/xbox brand

JBSleek1270d ago

1. They didn't sack Elop.

2. It wouldn't be great to sack him actually.

3. He isn't working with Xbox.

MasterCornholio1270d ago

Ah so he was just head of Xbox temporarily.

Thanks for clearing that up.

Elop will be in charge of the devices division. One of the big changes that Satya also made, was to unify the Xbox division with the windows division. Phil will report report directly to Terry Mierson. You can check the corporate email that Satya wrote to employees at the verge.

This are amazing news and goes to show, that MS is still going by their one MS vision. Looks like Xbox is here to stay, on contraire of what people here wants to make you believe with all the "MS wants to sell Xbox" thing.

chrissx1270d ago

A good choice. This guy genuinely knows about games
