Microsoft's Xbox Division head honcho Phil Spencer was on the prowl at Tokyo Game Show today, and he also visited the indie area, where he found some gems that he'd like to bring to Xbox One.
"Phil Spencer was on the prowl" what was he like hunting for prey or something?? loled at the wording.
Naa, he was looking for another company to jump ship to.
Or for MS to effectively buy...
All you guys fed the Troll, (deathofthefanboy), did exactly the same as he did, called him a troll/fanboy..... Your responses were almost the same as his..... Really..... PS4 is great, so is X1. Really, it is time to move on and just play the games..... Let Sony and MS do its business, and stop complaining..... Sorry, meant those in the deathofthefanboy thread.
too hyped to see what they have in store
Battletoads Conker Perfect Dark Banjo Shovel Knight
im still dreaming with Jet Force Gemini... imagine Banjo Threie with HD Remaster of 1 and 2 :3
Crimson skies or at least that snoopy dogfighting game and a real panza d successor
Crimson Skies or Mech assault! AGREED 100x!
JET SET RADIO
Time for Nadella to open up that checkbook again!
Look at the keyword here. Like to "BRING". When he should be saying, like to "MAKE".
that's MS for you
Well considering he was at the indie booth, make doesn't apply. Same as sony can't make indies, they see their work, then convince them to come. So the vernacular is correct especially since you can't create a game that's already been made
Are you that dense? Like can you really be that dense? So now Microsoft wants to bring indie titles is a bad thing? Just give your Microsoft hate a rest already. Grow up and move on.
You should try and remove your faboyism from your rear and invest in some reading glasses. I'm not bashing anything Microsoft, all I'm saying is Microsoft should invest in making games thro their own studios. Like Sony and Nintendo does.
Well, according to all your dudebro friends, indies are garbage, and it's good Microsoft isn't allowing many on the XB1. That said, word choice definitely plays a part at this point, as Spencer should well be aware. When they're perceived as buying content rather than creating it- and when this perception is a negative view- he should know to be mindful of perpetuating that image. Unless, of course, that's exactly what he means by his words. And, judging by most of their recent actions(and their actions for some time now), he certainly does mean to buy, rather than create.
So your comment has nothing to do with this piece. NOTHING. Nobody cares what you think Microsoft should be doing. If this was an article about how phil Spencer said he doesn't believe In Making first party games, then Your comment would make sense. But its clear you have an agenda and no matter what Microsoft does you will chime in with your biased opinion. Whatever helps you sleep at night chief.
So now it matters how MS gives their customers games!? Am I seriously reading this? Remember when the main complaint was MS doesn't have any games, now that they are coming with games, now the argument is being shifted to HOW they acquire the games. A certain camp is really fishing for anything they can get their hands on and this is by far the lowest of the pond you can get. Especially when we have had just as many articles and shown just as many games of MS's 1st party and their third party partners MAKING games for the Xbox One. But yea, lets just take what Phil said and blow it well out of proportion. @Spotie "..indies are garbage, and it's good Microsoft isn't allowing many on the XB1." And according to all your naïve friends indies are our saviors and it's good Sony is allowing old PC ports to flood their system. Just stop! I guess you missed E3 when they were announcing games they were CREATING. I swear, MS buys one exclusive and you equal that to their whole upcoming game library. "...he should know to be mindful of perpetuating that image." No matter what he would have said he would have gotten extreme slack from you. When we have rabid fanboys like yourself who can't wait to take things the competition says out of context and blow it up bigger than what it should be then how can we even take you serious let alone believe you.
Waste of time arguing with closed minded people. They seem oblivious to the fact that firsty party games make up a tiny fraction of a consoles games. The vast majority are third party titles. So all platform holders will be busting a gut to get as many on their platform as possible.
Exactly. So a big publisher should invest in creating indies that are already made at the indie booth. N4g fans never disappoint me
Bring equals buy with $$$ for M$.
2 seconds reading this tiny little article (if you really wanna call it an article).... and you would understand. He's at TGS and played a couple games and wish he could get the developers to bring the games to Xbox too.
D4 is a really good exclusive,I must admit.
I'm also hoping MS make more exclusives myself. I'm enjoying both systems but I'd like a lot more diversity in both. I know it's not been a year since this generation started but I almost feel like I should've waited a bit to purchase the other system.
I think they will be alright. Every studio they have is working on something, and they opened 4 more this year
Might be expensive ...so much for profit, but I guess if you can get the games, get the deals , you get the console sold and the cycle starts going.
Sweet games galore thanks Ms.
I like Phil for Xbox but he should start looking internally and actually innovate as he is going to get in hot water over trying to pay for third party games to not be on other platforms.
I say buy away , we do need some new IP and some new studios . GET TO BUYING Phil
spencer acts like they've just been busy and that's why they don't have as many games coming to the xbox.
SPENCER! WHERE IS MECHASSAULT!!!???
I see, I see......soooooooo why doesn't MS actually make those games he wants soo much? I've heard many times from MS heads that they "want" said IP. Soooo does MSGS actually make new IPs anymore or?
Sounds like Phil wants to go on an indie buying spree. If MS didn't have the parity clause and he didn't have to worry about exclusivity, he'd be able to secure these games for Xbox platforms with less money, and invest the savings into first party AAA games. I know a lot of people like Spencer but, I find him to be glib.
LMAO imma go out on a limb and say he NEVER watched Psycho-Pass a day in his life but anything he says Xbox drones will praise him like sheep.
Dear Phil Spencer, I don't care what you'd like to do, I wanna know what YOU ARE DOING. That's when I want to hear from you, I don't want to hear about potential, I want confirmation on "Original exclusives" and release dates for said titles. Until then please shut up, at the end of day your just another suit and tie guy, a bond servant of a Corporation, and your all liars, cheats and deceivers. Trust is earned, and earned by results, not talk. Get some more results, be consistent....then maybe I'll delude myself 1 more time into thinking you really care about people.
Just played Forza Horizon 2 on a girl friends Xbox One.. OMG!!! Totally Epic Intro!!! Great Visuals, neat controls! It's the only game on Xbox One I'd totally wanna play...shame it's on the wrong console (for me), can't justify the purchase on the strength of 1 game. Maybe...I'll buy an X1/FH2 Bundle for my BF this years Black Friday Sales....May Beeee. Excuses, excoohsez Lulz ;/
