How did he do it? Even casuals were shitting on the Xbox One months after its reveal. How did he manage to turn the entire ship around and have the console NOT be stuck in third place the entire generation?
Oh, this meme again?
>Phil Spencer is such a bro, right?
Don matrick wasn't in control anymore, he single handedly steered the ship towards an iceberg and tainted a hated company more than ever before.
Now Phil is left cleaning up matrick's mess, sorta like the mess bush left to Obama and what Obama is leaving to the lucky runner up, and like them, it's going to take a long time and he might never fully succeed.
I give him props for the massive weight he's carrying on his shoulders.
Just stop already. It's not gonna happen.
really? this faggot company was ready to completely fuck you in the ass, and didnt think to stop until PROMPTED, you shouldnt have to fucking tell them it's fucking common sense
and what games? forza and halo 5 hours long? rest gets ported to pc, even fucking recore which was supposed to be their big new thing from inafune
stick with pc buddy
If he really wanted to make me happy he'd transport the halo MCC collection and halo 5 to PC.
I already play them on my bone, but I'd really like 1440p 144hz as an option.
Also forza would be nice, as my g27 doesn't hook up to the bone
yeah yeah no fucking doubt about that, love oddworld, gotham racing, good memores.
i have a lot of love for 360 too, but im mainly talking about the one and all the fucking tv and nsa and watching you jack off shit
permanently turned me off console gaming, gone pc and never looked back again
It would be nice, but he's gotta keep SOMETHING exclusive to the Bone. There would be no point in buying one if they didn't keep some of the exclusives, and the amount they're porting to PC is kinda insane already.
My guess is it's some Microsoft-wide mandate that's all about taking all the branches and streamlining them under Windows 10 or some shit.
Yeah that early Xbone shit was disgusting. But then they fired the guy who was in charge, Don "If you don't have internet, buy a 360" Mattrick, and hired Spencer because the dude actually likes video games.
Now I actually really like the thing a lot. Makes sense to credit the guy who decided to use the funds used to buy up third party games, and turn them into first party funds for actual good games.
>gone pc and never looked back again
I switched to PC in 2010, i am currently in the "looked back again" stage. There are so many games that are blatant console ports, and either control like ASS with the keyboard/mouse setup (i just use a controller with my PC), or just run fucking poorly no matter what (can't get around that one).
There's also playerbase size for multiplayer games. PC gamers love CS:GO, but if you want to play, for example, EA Battlefront, there is a laughable gap in player install base between the PC and the PS4.
As much as i hate the xbone because it's a garbage system with absolutely zero games, i must say i really do like phil. He's trying hard as hell to get his system to not suck. It's barely working but he's trying his best.
Well yeah. It's part of the whole "Streamline all Microsoft products under Windows 10" thing.
Also, I like Phil because he was the only one to fund SWERY and let him make games again. D4 a good.
Say what you will about La-La land, but it's pretty fun for however long it lasts. Which extended a fuckton longer thanks to Amiibo sales, even though they're the worst when they do Splatoon shit like locking shit behind it.
You shouldn`t be asking what Xbone did right but rather what Nintendo did wrong, they`re basically fighting for last prize.
Yeah, Xbone sure is saved... oh wait, no it isn't. It took 4 months for Halo 5 to sell 1 million copies, Scalebound is delayed a whole year, Recore is no longer exclusive, Crackdown 3 is coming to PC, and PC gets new Killer Instinct content first now. It's so far past dead that even the Wii U and Vita are laughing at it.
>its not selling so bad that means xbone is good right?
the xbone sucks balls as a console and as a service and only retarded americans use that shit, the smarter a country is the less xbone will be sell there.
I like Phil but he and MS need to get more of their classic franchises back in action.
>new Phantom Dust and Voodoo Vince
No fuck those I want a new Otogi and Mechassault. How about a Lost Odyssey 2, a new Itagaki game (he was a huge Xbox supporter and made some of the best games on OG Xbox and 360), a proper new Fable, etc? They're doing better than they were the past few years but they're still dropping the ball hard. They're letting Sony coast their way to victory.
Console sales of the 7th gen. 360 got more sales than the PS3, it took the whole gen for the PS3 to get around even. Which is probably how this gen is gonna go, but in reverse.
The fuck are you talking about
>How did he manage to turn the entire ship around and have the console NOT be stuck in third place the entire generation?
There are just two consoles out there, he can't get in third place.
>people shitting on Xbone constantly since its stupid launch plans
>finally turns things around with a competent exec and a promising library
>meanwhile right now Sony fans can't play their games because the online services are down, they're being bombarded with CoD map exclusivity, PS Vue TV services etc.
You seriously cant make this shit up, this gen is wacky
Except that's wrong. Final totals 2 years ago at the start of this gen it was PS3 at 85 million sold and Xbox 360 at 76 million. Even with a headstart and cheaper console, MS lost the race.
I'm Aussie and I remember everyone buying a 360 from 2006-2008 but then everyone sold their 360's and bought PS3's instead around 2009/2010 and kept them until PS4 was released.
And all the newfaggots who started gaming late just started straight with PS3 as first console.
People seem to forget that every launch model ps3 is prone to failure. They literally messed up applying thermal paste to all of them, meaning eventually you'll get the ylod. Don't pretend the PlayStation numbers weren't messed with too. The only legit one that gen was the Wii.
Phil making Xbox worth buying with GAMES
>Microsoft quietly moving it's lineup to PC as well, most recently, Recore
>Rumors that Microsoft's next console will run Windows 10 and thus render itself obsolete
I'm not even going to participate in the next console war, fuck Microsoft and Sony
Has Microsoft even profited at all from either of their two consoles?
>Xbone/360/Xbox games come to PC
>Xbone becomes more similar to PC
What if Microsoft goes the Steam Machine route? Obviously XBox would remain a single machine unlike SM which uses variable hardware, but a similar concept. XBox becomes just a specialized gaming PC and XBox/Microsoft accounts become completely linked.
