Xbox's Phil Spencer on Game Pass, Steam and the Epic Games Store

On Monday, the day after the Xbox E3 briefing where Game Pass for PC was revealed in full, I had the chance to sit down with Microsoft's executive vice president of gaming Phil Spencer. We talked about the company's approach to selling PC games, its relationship with Steam, and many other things. It's a long read, but hopefully it'll give you a comprehensive overview of where Microsoft sees itself within PC gaming as it stands.

The story is too old to be commented.

I'm glad Gamepass is on PC. The fact that I have the option to continue playing certain games on my laptop when I'm on the go is awesome.

Very impressed with Game Pass for PC. So many options.

GamePass is the next big thing.
the quality of games in there is mind blowing and for cheap price

The market doesn't seem to share your optimistic view.

Well, the market is well enough that I can play several AAA games for dollars a month... Even recent ones

The market does share his optimistic view. just because you don't play on Xbox or PC doesn't mean you have to hate and speak on behalf of this made up market of yours.

Glad to see MS pushing hard into the PC space. Game pass is a great value, and definitely going in on it for PC, myself.

Yeah. Getting to finally play all the Halo releases on PC is going to be nice. The fact they are starting with Reach (my favorite of the series) is cool too.

And Horizon is easily my favorite racing series. A lot of good content to be had now.

Yeah there is and I feel pc is the best way to game has alot more options over consoles and I've also found it's not as expensive as it was back when I tried to pc game in 2000. Looking to build a pc early next year though as an upgrade to my latitude laptop I have at the moment and loving the price of the amd processors to.
