The Xbox Series X was designed by people who believe in games

Xbox Series X is exactly the console Microsoft needed to build. And I'm taking it as a sign that Microsoft believes in Xbox's future.

“I'm taking it as a sign that Microsoft believes in Xbox's future.“

Well the billions of dollars spent on content and Studios make this point fairly obvious.

Ideed. More acquisitions to come.

Phil Spencer is on fire

crazyCoconuts49d ago

Oh no! Did he get too close to the XSX exhaust port??
Just kidding :-)

Nasdac49d ago (Edited 49d ago )

At this point MS doesn't need more acquisitions(on small scale it doesn't matter), they need to focus on delivering quality games. If they continue to acquiring Studios this will turn out to Gaming Monopoly and we don't need that in Gaming Industry.

Money cant secure success thought, talent and fresh ideas can.

" More acquisitions to come"

Id be surprised if everyone stopped all of a sudden.

Phil Spencer is on fire? More like Phil Spencer should be fired.... Xbox under him has been painful these last 5 years

As a console, not just as a service.
It *should* be fairly obvious what he said, you're correct there.

All these billion dollar studios will be creativily limited by 10gb of slow ram and a 3.9tf gpu. Defenitily believing in the future there Phil.

CaptainObvious87849d ago (Edited 49d ago )

Exactly.

It's so utterly stupid to say xbox believes in the future of the industry in that context.

All they care about is their precious gamepass. It's why they are perfectly fine releasing a gimped xss to sell to uneducated casuals that's going to hamsting the xsx for the entire generation.

And yet there's so many fools defending or dismissing this.

If you want an actual next gen console with actual next gen games, get a ps5, it's as simple as that.

Civil engineers who believe in games?

Fishy Fingers49d ago

Might be worth googling what 'civil engineers' actually engineer...

Christopher49d ago

@Fishy Fingers: I was just trying to go with the flow. But, yeah, no bridge building happening here. I like that you replied to me and not TheExecutioner, though :P

Southbridge and northbridge are standard parts of a motherboard dude.

Christopher49d ago

@Fishy Fingers: I thought AMD called them controller hub and apu?

RememberThe35749d ago

Fishy so sassy nowadays

I love the new direction xbox is heading. That change in leadership (both at XB and MS) has done an amazing turn around for the platform. No tv tv tv and more games games games.

Christopher49d ago (Edited 49d ago )

With Microsoft so heavily focused on cloud computing, Xbox is only going to see continued support to dominate in that arena against Google and Amazon. It's an arena Microsoft cannot afford to lose (neither can the other two, though). And as long as they get that support, their hardware and software will continue to be supported as a means to their goal because everyone realizes that the biggest differentiator in the cloud is content and pricing.

Christopher49d ago (Edited 49d ago )

@darkWingsoul: This isn't so much as breaking barriers as it is preventing others from doing it if it's possible. Microsoft DOES NOT want Google or Amazon entering any cloud market they can't beat them at.

CaptainObvious87849d ago

You mean the direction of their abysmal support for this entire generation and will continue that pattern by not releasing a single launch exclusive for their glorified pc (xsx), which will be throttled to cater to the weaker xss, all the while they brag about BC because that's literally all they can brag about and continuing their push to turn the industry into a subscription model that will see the disappearance of quality AAA games that will be replaced with shallow, poorly made GaaS that are riddled with MTs?

That direction?

You people supporting this are beyond the pale.

Hey, CaptainObvious, you seem to view gaming as it is in it's current state and not see where the future is going. This has nothing to do with bragging rights on launch day. I'm glad Phil is focusing on where he is taking Xbox. In five years nobody will care about launch day, who had a 4k UI, or that one remake that may or may not be next gen. I'll be playing Starfield and ES6 on my Series X Pro in my living room, my PC at work, streaming to my Series S in the bedroom, and on my tablet or cell when I'm away from home. You will be like Al Bundy reminiscing how you had 4 touchdowns in high school while the rest of the world grew up 😁

CaptainObvious87848d ago

Yes, please forgive me for wanting the industry to continue to produce amazing AAA games that I can actually own for a reasonable price.

Ironically, It's actually you that fails to see where the future is headed. And thanks to your ignorance you'll be supporting it's inception.

Killer73nova49d ago

Not really. It was built for its fans.

Christopher49d ago

You do realize this is about who built it, not for whom it was built, right? It can be both built FOR fans and built BY people who believe in games.

SinisterKieran49d ago

tbh thats 100% false, it was built for developers. cerny did a trip going to all major studios and asked what they wanted in the new console.
their number 1 ask was for a super fast SSD. other things of course etc etc.

I've upvoted because I think some didn't get that pun...

No, the engineers at Sony believe in the tooth fairy and Santa Claus. And that the Children are the Future. Facts.

GaboonViper49d ago

Jeff Grubb LOL, him and Tom Warren are the biggest shills out there.

Ausbo49d ago

Jeff grubb actually prefers nintendo games more than anything else.

How have positive articles now automatically be branded as “paid for”. Just because it doesn’t support your agenda
