Will Xbox One Be Last Console? Microsoft's Phil Spencer Thinks Not

NowGamer: Microsoft's Phil Spencer doesn't believe that Xbox One will be the 'last console as we know it' even with the rise of cloud streaming technology, as he describes local hardware scenarios as 'critical'.

I hope he's right. I don't want to see the end of consoles.

In an interview between Adam Sessler & Matt Booty,Matt said that The XboxOne might be the last console you'll ever buy,he did say though that it "maybe a little bit of a stretch to say".

Don't really know if Matt knows something we don't,but this was before Microsoft ditched the Always Online DRM fiasco so who knows?

I do wish for consoles to stay alive as well,healthy competition is always welcomed.

Xbox is doing fine with sales, so I don't see Microsoft getting rid of xbox. PS I am going to get dislikes anyway so I might as well say something worthy of them, Microsoft is a shark and Sony's financial troubles is like blood in the water. I think Microsoft will keep pushing them to failure, you see how Sony keeps undercutting its own prices to make sure they sell.

No it isn't. The Xbox division is non-profitable for Microsoft, and is always discussed if it should be sold off. However, Sony is losing profit from their other divisions and not the gaming market. Xbox will eventually disappear.

Sony didn't undercut, they just didn't sell the PS camera with the PS4, since it's not mandatory like Kinect is to xbox one. even if they did sell the PS camera with PS4, it would only put the price at $460.

" I think local compute will be important for a long time"

"You can look at mobile, connected to faster networks, more cloud services but local power still increases each gen."

"Bandwidth caps clearly an issue, still believe HW & SW engrs working together will find local HW scenarios critical."

It's nice to see at least one MS exec isn't up in the clouds (no pun intended :p).

I don`t want it to end but sometimes good things must come to end(No Seriousness intended :p)

Good things may come to end one day but bad pennies like you never end and still have one bubble to spawn in MS news and troll. Waiting for your perma ban one day.

Well, the potential candidates for the position of Microsoft's new CEO seem to think it will be, given that they want to ditch the console business. I know that Elop guy who's likely to get the position wants to sell off Xbox as soon as possible.

lifeisgamesok3834d ago

Won't happen but I guess you can keep hope alive

Mikefizzled3834d ago

I think Satya Nadella will be announced as CEO. He is a big player in the cloud computing.

mhunterjr3834d ago

Elop isn't likely to get the job...

sak5003834d ago

More likely sony closes/sell off PS brand last 10 years worst in companies history with billions of dollars losses.
