Three Reasons Why Phil Spencer Is Just What The Xbox Brand Needs

Phil Spencer - head honcho at Microsoft Studios - has been promoted and will serve as the head of Microsoft’s Xbox, Xbox Live, and creative teams, including Xbox Music, Xbox Video, and Microsoft Studios (still.) The announcement came yesterday after a period of leadership that didn’t seem to have a great deal of direction. With 12 months of chop, change and change again hopefully behind us, we’re glad that the man they call XboxP3 has been called up.

Number 3 I'm all for. Games First TV second.

Also great news.

"Microsoft E3 2014 press conference will bring the the best line-up of content in long time"

I read that too,its really great. Makes the wait for E3 seem like forever.

Can you remember this comment he made on twitter?

"Haha, I like working on games too much. If I were CEO we'd have 130K people building games...."

Definitly the right guy for the job.

TrueJerseyDevil1478d ago

I agree Phil s doing and will continue to do a amazing job. I think this is what the Xbox One needs to turn things around

AngelicIceDiamond1478d ago

I was trying to find that tweet actually.

Now he doesn't mean literally but he does want as many people on board to work on X1 games.

Now that hes in charge that should come into fruition.

Of course he was joking but that's the type of passion every gamer wants to see in a guy who runs the xbox division and now that he is the head imagine how much resources he will put into games and getting more exclusives for the xbox one. I imagine he will keep expanding their 1st party studios while opening up new studios and making great deals with 2nd and 3rd party devs.

E3 will be huge

This guy will do anything to make sure X1 will win this gen, as he said before "we're in this to win". And now that he's in control of third party deals you can expect more Titanfalls throughout X1's lifetime.

He knows X1 must continue to outdo the PS4 drastically in exclusives. This will continue as long as this guy is head of Xbox.

You best believe X1 will bring a staggering amount of AAA titles to make sure it's the number one console for games. Keep up the good work, Phil.

I find it almost amusing that people keep saying that Xbox One needs to turn things around, when highest rated exclusive AAA current generation game is released, stellar launch game lineup compared to competition and continued releases, major updates have been occurring on OS with rapid releases of new features AND dedicated servers like promised.

There is no turning around, just more momentum coming with Phil Spencer at the helm.

From the competition, all I see is almost zilch movement and just riding the hype wagon.

1 reason he's a gamer who better to be at the top than 1 of our own.

Whitey2k1477d ago

As both phil and mark are great they botg want games games and more games but I still believe mark cerny still has the edge when it comes to hardware

Nocando1477d ago

Stands to reason, isn't Cerny an engineer?
