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".

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....

sobotz1682d ago

So now all gamers and MS's costumers are fanboys? Ha.

AngelicIceDiamond1682d ago

@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..

starchild1681d ago

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.

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.

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!
