Microsoft Game Studio Head Phil Spencer was interviewed at South by Southwest Gaming Expo by Geoff Keighley, and expressed some very interesting concepts during the quite laid back chat.
Put them fanboys on blast Phil.
$#@! fanboys! they ruined DRM, always on-line and keep bringing up facts whenever we talk about the "power of the cloud". /s
Exactly if Microsoft was on top they would be all about the fanboys. The same way there where all about the fanboys when the 360 rained supreme.
Man... another Phil Spencer says article....
So now all gamers and MS's costumers are fanboys? Ha.
@Jebabcock This is no different then Mark Cerny says articles last year. Its not a bad thing that both company's are reaching out to us. Its kind of a good thing.
He should tell that to Aaron Greenberg. He hangs out with Tim Dog, a guy with his own posse that hates on everything Sony and wishes Indies would just go to hell and die.
i have nothing against xbox. my problem is the MS mentality in general and how they treat consumers..
As someone who predominantly plays on PC but who has witnessed the fanboy console wars over the past couple generations the way I see it is that Sony fanboys got some convenient ammo thanks to some of Microsoft's missteps, but you guys would have hated on the Xbox One no matter what. You hated on the 360 just as much.
Uhuh Uhuh who is this ho? See why you ain't appealin to me. Tryna get my money You ain't stealin from me.
haha look- hes mad right now. he wants your money Sooo bad right now. hes actually thinking of another Scam right now. (KOTD joke)
@angelice The guy is great, definitly the right person to be leading the xbx team. i like his straight forward and humble approach. Always nice to hear what he has to say and i agree this fanboy wars is crap,actually glad those i game with dont involve themselves with such..kinect definitly needs some killer apps and He talks about return of old classics, i wonder what games he is reffering to? Its also good to see him speak so highly of the big N and Sony..he has definitly learnt alot from them Keep up the great work Phil. You doing good.
[The Simpsons Nelson voice] "Ha Ha!" Even Phil Spencer owns a PS4 - and prefers it! Maybe. Spencer certainly comes across as being one of the more down to Earth suits at Microsoft, and is much less abrasive then Aaron Greenberg or Major Nelson. But hasn't he been doing a lot of PR this past month, is this all it takes to win back his homeland?
Fanboys ruin gaming! They need to disappear... so gamers can prevail. Everything taken to the extreme is not good, and that's what fanboys do. They praise their console (and games) of choice to the extreme and bash and hate other consoles (and games) to the extreme.
A very respectable and the only good man is speaking the truth so please let's listen not criticizes!
The power of dx12 and the cloud will enable Phil to go back in time and bin kinect, use an Intel CPU and strike a deal with nvidia to produce the GPU, all your problems are fixed xbox 1080 Ta Dah!
Play that good guy role Phil. Don't let his weaselly face and rich guy smirk throw you off. He's all for the gamers, yo.
Wow, it's cool to finally SEE him say this...part of my job is reading the way people talk and judging through body-language...he was being completely genuine. I like that this guy is in charge at Xbox...he knows what he's doing, and it's showing in the line up of games that he's helping to invest it.
Love how MS twists things around. They are masters of deception.
What's he twisting here?
No body is asking MS to praise Sony or take jabs at them in alternating fashion as they have been doing. They want to seem like the nice company that is above fanboyism now that it doesnt suit theim. Whereas they were the ones who inflamed the flames themselves when it suited them. Only recently this same dude commented on Sony taking jabs at MS because of NS policies, n how being the good MS that they are, they view it as "just business". The truth was however, that MS was directly criticised ONCE by Sony (in the "how to share games on Playstation" video) the rest of the criticism was from the consumers tgemselves who realized how MS was going to shaft them in the new generation. MS was vasically blaming the negative press on Sony. They are hoping that people have short memories. Then they alternate comments like thiose with "praise" for the compitition and how they themselves are above fanboism. They are basically hoping that people who bought PS4s will read this and decide to get an xbox as well. Ias much as i have always had all consoles, personally dont like it when ccompanies think im stupid. Microsoft is the definition of dirty business practices. Lokok at what they do in every field they compete in, they spend as much money bashing and using negative advertising campaigns as they do on promoting their own products. (Remember the ad they came out with wen iphone 5 was coming out?)so im sorry if i dont think this guys "praise" is genuine...
lot of respect for those words. points for phil.
hahahahahaha atttttttttttack the ps4 fanboy wow that some great balls there
If you actually bothered to watch the interview, he only mentions XBOX fanboys, not Sony/PS4 fanboys, and then addresses fanboys in general...like you.
'' i own a playstation'' good there lol
You ever thought that maybe he does.TA-DA
and Yoshida owns two Wii U is there a problem
phil whats your psn? so I can add you
Got to give Phil credit he seems far more truthful, respectful, and likeable then other xbox management like Penello, Greenberg, Matrick, or Hyrb. Spencer should be their main presenter during MS E3 conference.
Good video. Good interview. Here's the thing a lot of people tend to forget, from time to time: This industry is kinda like WWE. We hype up the Sony vs Microsoft spin and throw our cheerleaders out there and get our fanboys doing damage control and or trolling...and we make it look like this huge war, between these 2 giants. But when the curtian falls and the show is over, these guys go out to lunch together, get beers together and play golf together. There is no good guy and there is no bad guy. They may be competitors, but theyre ALL on the same team...and they pat eachother on the backs and congratulate eachother and give eachother kudo's, back and forth. WE....see it as entertainment, like 2 All Star football teams, going at it. At the end of the day, man...you just gotta do what makes YOU happy. If youre an XBox fan, be an XBox fan. If youre a PlayStation fan, be a PlayStation fan and if youre a Nintendo fan, be a Nintendo fan. If you own all 3, more power to you. And if you wanna be a fanboy, fine...take a bullet for your brand. Whatever. But do so KNOWING that it's all just entertainment, man. You feel me?
Phil I will get an Xbox one just for you, cause you're a good guy!.
I love and respect Microsoft and xbox , but Phil Spencer just has a face you just want to punch.......reeeeealy hard
There's something wrong with you. I've heard people make similar comments about all sorts of people and I somehow never have that urge. If you want to punch somebody because of the way they look you've got serious problems.
It's quite interesting he only mentioned when Titanfall was signed to be a timed exclusive, and not the more recent deal to keep it a lifetime exclusive to Microsoft platforms. Maybe the actual deal was to just to pretend it had become a lifetime exclusive? And we know, there's even talk now about it coming to Mac! It would simply cost Microsoft a fortune to keep it exclusive with how well the PS4 is selling, and EA is just too greedy.
