"All the best to Reggie Fils-Aime on the next phase of his life and career. Great leader, industry partner and friend." -Phil Spencer

You heard it from the horse's mouth. Nintendo and Xbox are business partners.
No need for futile denial and disagrees.

I wanna thank Phil Spencer for proving me right.

Wow. Way to turn a nice comment from Spencer on a long time colleague retiring, and trying to twist it into some sort of great positive for MS.

Reggie's been around for a long time. He's seems like a pretty good guy, and I suppose he did a good job. Whether he's an industry partner with MS or not is besides the point, and if you understand what that term means, you'd realize that an industry partner doesn't mean what you think it means. Just means that you have two companies in the same industry, who often compete, but often do work together for the greater good.

A business partner is a business partner.
I had a comment saying "MS and Nintendo are partners" and many folks here on N4G disagreed fiercely. I don't know why they deny that fact.
Now Phil Spender has said it himself. So what I said was true.

Yeah, but you still turned a nice comment from Spencer, which actually seemed sincere and not about trying to play up MS, and turned it into something cynical.
