Xbox boss knows that fans want more AAA exclusive titles

There is no doubt that Xbox had a strong presentation at E3 2017 in which it showed a lot of titles. The problem is that the AAA exclusives that was shown can be counted on the fingers of one hand, a fact that did not please many of its fans. However, the audience of Xbox has nothing to worry about, since Phil Spencer, head of the brand, knows what fans want.


In an interview with Waypoint, Spencer said that fans can rest easy, since they have invested in new projects, and have closed some deals. However, the executive does not want to go the easy way to show something that is years away just to look good with the audience.

“We are investing in new things, we signed some things that made me think ‘hey, from a public relations standpoint it would be very easy for me to put a trailer on screen’, but I know the game will not come up in 2 years and half or 3 years, so I did not want to do this,” he said.

Later, Spencer made it clear that when he started in his current position, the company’s main focus was on hardware; However, with the launch of the Xbox One S and Xbox One X he is happy with what they offer. Also, he said that they are focused on launching more games so their consumers can enjoy their new console.

“Trust is important to us as a platform. From the CEO to the low spots, if you talk to Satya [Nadella] he’ll tell you ‘I understand, we need to invest in content in the gaming space… great AAA games for consoles is what I listen to, and I’m committed to this. [In E3 2017] I wanted to talk about things that you can play when you have the console, but I will continue to work on delivering games. We did it on hardware, we did it on the platform and backward compatibility, and we will do it also with first-party. It is something very important.”

As you know, Microsoft’s big focus at its E3 2017 conference was Xbox One X, the console that will allow games like Forza Motorsport 7 and Paladins: Champions of the Realm to run at 4K and a frames rate of 60 per second. This console will be available from November 7 in exchange at a price of $499 USD.

    If he knew what gamers wanted he wouldn’t have made a pathetic, underpowered, inferior console like the Xbox DONE in the first place..

    It was another embarrassing E3 showing from Microsoft – a weak, underpowered, smoke and mirrors overpriced console with not a single game worth playing announced for it. The Microsoft fangirls can disagree all they like but they know it’s true and that’s why they’re refusing to buy the console they claim to love so much.

    Xbox fangirls are the most cowardly, hypocritical and two-faced fanbase in the world because they say they love the console but they don’t buy it when it’s available and instead they let it get outsold 2-1 worldwide by the PS4 and leave the Xbox to rot down in the bargain bin like the unwanted trash they know it is.

    Even Xbox fangirls know the Xbox is a trash console with no games worth playing and sales prove that! That’s why the same sheep defending the Xbox in comments sections on the internet haven’t even bought the console….because they know it’s garbage!
