wait your title is about Phil and yet the main point is nearly at the end of your podcast. ill pass
As you can see from the time codes, we do go through a large number of topics. This is an expansion of last week's Scorpio heavy episode, and a callback to the very first episode where we discuss Microsoft's long term plan for the Xbox brand beyond consoles. But if that one point is all you want to listen to, you can certainly just skip to it, listen for 24 minutes and then turn it off. Or not. Your call.
L.M I was literally was gonna play it til i saw ya time stamps. I wasn't tryna make an early morning rant my bad if i came off like that. I'm just used to the meat being in the middle of other podcast i listens too.
No problem. I usually structure the show in such a way that the biggest discussion happens at the end of the news section, particularly if there are other topics that lead into it that provide shading to the discussion. The time stamps are for those who want that one thing specifically, and don't need/want the other discussion. Either way, I try to respect people's time.
@whitesoxfalife1976 You are being overly harsh on the bloggers as they are being entirely transparant. The Phil Spencer element is the most important so they use it as the headline. It isn't at the beginning of their podcast show but they do give timecodes so you can jump straight to it.
Reading the lines is all what fanboys do.
What's interesting is the things that Spencer talks about off handedly in the middle of talking about Scorpio. Taking them into consideration alongside their strategy on the Play Anywhere initiative, it makes for some interesting discussion about what's next for Xbox as a brand and/or service.
that i do agree
slow down there youngsta......
You don't find what Spencer actually talked about this week interesting?
There is zero support for Phil wanting a modular Xbox. Total BS Podcast.
I think perhaps you've confused the discussion of what Phil Spencer said with one of the hosts' interest in such a model. Phil Spencer's direction is more along the lines of Trip Hawkins's concept of the Xbox brand as a service.
