>"In the case of things like Scalebound or Crackdown or Quantum Break, you know, just to be completely honest with you, we started those games before we really looked at expanding into Windows in the way that I wanted to bring as part of becoming head of Xbox.
>"Going to those teams mid-cycle and saying: ‘Hey, by the way, I want to add a platform,’ didn’t really feel like necessarily the best way to end up with the best result for the game. They had a path that they were on. It’s not to say those games could never come to Windows, but right now we’re on the path to finish the great games that they’ve started, and I want that to be the case. These games are on a path, whereas with, like, Halo Wars 2 I had the opportunity from the beginning, when we’re sitting down with the studio, to say, ‘Here’s the target. Here’s what we wanna go do.’
He also said the reason why Xbox One doesn't get more high profile exclusives is because it isn't selling well enough.
>"In order for us to realize what we want to realize, the financials have to work. This is why at certain times, when people will push on, ‘Hey, should Xbox console games go to PC? Why are you guys focusing on Windows?’"
It's a neverending cycle.
They always say "alright we will focus on pc gaming dont worry" then nothing happens. They do the odd release 6-12 months after the og console release and with 0 hype and thats that. No halo or forza which is obviously the main pull for the xbox. Then some time passes and they come out saying "ok now we REALLY want to focus on PC" and just repeat the same shit.
Phil is just another bullshitter. These games most likely already have dev builds capable of running on PC's. But even at worse it wouldn't take more than a couple of months, yet he pretends its like developing a new version of those games from scratch.
Whats your point? Xbox executive makes the decision to keep games exclusive to their platform in attempt to boost sales. Will later port said games in an attempt to recoup fiscal losses as a result of keeping it exclusive to a platform everybody hates.
Good luck with their windows 10 exclusives too. Those games are too shitty for anyone to actually care.
They're just making PCucks hostage by Xbox success.
"So do you want this game? Maybe if you buy it for Xbox and if turns out to be financially successful for that platform we can think of porting it to PC some years later!"
>fuck getting Windows 10
Why do some of you stubborn kiddies still think this way?
I'm still on it since the preview version and it's definitely the faster, more optimized, better suited OS. Some crying about m-muh spying big brother isn't going to change a thing (and it happens just as much on the other OSes). I couldn't care less if Bill wants to look at my fetishes.
I actually care about my privacy and no, my copy of Windows isn't spying on my machine since I disable updates
I use a vpn, until someone makes something that block telemetry, fuck Windows 10
Phil Spencer is pushing for Xbox One to become a Windows 10 device.
It's so fucking obvious, he realizes that they will never catch up to Sony, he also realizes that the old "console definition" is dated and is becoming more and more pointless.
The OS doesn't send Microsoft more information than what your daily use internet browser does to their owner.
The only people who worry seem to have something to hide, like child porn.
It's not even comparable.
>Microsoft wants to spread windows and they dont care if people buy one windows platform or another
How is that a supprise for anyone? Its pretty obvious that they want windows to be the platform that is most dominant in all sectors.
And with one quick download and one button press, W10 is less spyware than the older OSes combined.
That's not true at all, people who care about privacy do so because they don't want everyone to know anything without their knowledge
Everyone has something to hide and the cc number example is perfect
And as he said it received fuck all advertising, I didn't know it had come out until around 4 weeks after launch, also we want unique games not "Shooter 17: More Shooting", also releasing games weeks/months/years after it came out on console is a brilliant way to kill it as.
A) Everyone who couldn't wait bought it on console if they could.
B) Unless there's a constant stream on content the game dies on it's arse.
C) The hype train as slowed to a halt all those fancy ad's mean shit to a game 6 months after launch so many people will be buying other things.
I am convinced this guy single-handedly tarnished xbox rep to such a degree it's still suffering.
Again, so you have something to hide then? Like child porn?
I genuinely can't come up with anything that you would store on a fucking computer that could lead back to something bad.
Or the touch screen abortion that 8/8.1 was...
Me personally my stance on privacy isn't exclusive to computers, I lock my house and close my Windows, I'm not doing anything illegal, I'm not running a drug ring
With your logic, you don't care if the cops can break down your house without cause
>Again, so you have something to hide then? Like child porn?
What is it with you and kiddie porn?
Do you not think perhaps some people just don't want companies collecting and knowing every single detail about them?
No doubt about it. The fallout from Mattrick's asinine naivety about their target audience was astronomically hilarious.
I'm full idort minus Xbox and even I felt bad for the fans.
>Maverick kills all the good will the 360 Generated with the announcement and launch of Xbox One
>Jumps ship knowing he fucked up royally
>Becomes CEO of Zynga
>Fucks up so badly there at what is a turnkey operation that they fire his ass a couple years later
Only Konami has fucked up harder than Donny.
But nobody is doing that. There is no "every single detail" that is being sent.
The worst information that is being sent is how often you start Windows Photo Viewer, if you even use that (irfanview is infinitely better).
I swear you niggas are paranoid as FUCK.
Oi arseprodder , that's the first time I've posted that in about 2 month's so fuck off, in addition it is relevant to how fucking using W8 made most people's feel.
>Ok so I have an idea on how to save the Xbox, lets just release all our exclusives on pc!
>Console Sales cause Exclusives instead of Exlusives causing Console Sales
is Phil retarded? I mean I like the guy, but that's probably the dumbest line I've ever heard in this context.
SPEND. MONEY. TO. MAKE. MONEY.
W10 exclusives are bad because even Microsoft admitted the spying is so ingrained they clicking all the right boxes changes nothing.
Once W7 support ends, I'm making a Hackintosh PC
I don't have to have something to hide. What is mine is exactly that, my own. I don't have to justify my privacy to anybody, it's mine. Your shitty company has no reason to be looking at my personal info and datamining the ever living fuck out of me. It's YOU who has a lot to hide with your shitty forced updates without any notes whatsoever and your non-disclosure of why do you need to know what's going on inside my anus.
Fuck off, microsoft marketer.
These games most likely already have dev builds capable of running on PC's.
right under our fucking nose but no-no can't release that shit because of reasons.
And then you open limewire to monitor traffic and ta-da! The same amount of data and the same servers are being contacted because you can't block what's embedded in the very code of the OS itself, meaning you'll need an EXTERNAL way of blocking it, such as a dedicated computer to act as a firewall.
I think it's pretty clear by now that microsoft aren't going to do anything with games unless it's getting people to go on their platforms like the Xbone or windows 10/windows store. They haven't given a fuck about anything other than their consoles for the past 10 years, why should they start caring about PC now?
>mfw this is literally what happened last gen with the ps3
Since when? The ps3 was a 599 dollars brand new console that was also a blu ray player that cost 823 dollars to assemble, which is why sony took a nauseating 5 billion loss when the whole gen is considered.
You go and try to find me a standalone blu ray for 599 dollars at the time when the ps3 came out.
PS3 had free online, played used games, did not require an online activation, and you could even install fucking Linux on it. How is that anywhere close to what the Xbone was? Early ps3 was criticized because of the retarded price and apparently hard to work with dev environment.
>Says he's going to blur the line between console and PC
>Phil is gonna kill traditional consoles
>Next Xbox will just support anything released on Windows while being backwards compatable with every xbox before
>PC gaming will be treated the same and consumers have a choice where they want to play
>All the money Sony spent on *also on PC is rendered worthless because PC games just work as long as they have controller support
>This was the plan all along
This is it lads. It's over. Consoles as you know them are dead.
So sony doing the only thing that microsoft does, which is pleasing dudebros, while also pleasing everyone else, including weeabos, suddenly doesn't make the MUH HALO box not be a dudebro one? That's why the bone doesn't sell anywhere but in murika, amirite?
Such variety, such as halo, forza... gears of war and... uh... halo and.... forza? Uh.... then there's Halo and.... Halo Collection?.... hmm... oh and forza and.... uh... halo 5?
Keep the exclusivity mindset to consoles, segregating a playerbase is fucking retarded. There's literally no reason it should be windows 10 exclusive. I really want to play KI on PC but I'm not upgrading to Windows 10 for it. Same with Gears of War; I would really like to play through it again on PC, but I'm not going to upgrade for it. And unfortunately for the dumbfucks over at Microsoft, SFV is coming out a month before KI AND there's no silly ass exclusivity surrounding it so KI is probably dead in the fucking water.
It's still a point, among all the other points, that reassures how much more open it was than the spybox, which is precisely the point he was trying to use to refute the retardation of the other guy who implied some kind of similarity between the bone and the ps3.
Are you retarded or is simple logic just that much out of your reach by any chance?
>b-but he wanted
I don't give a shit, I care about reality, not promises, he can go fuck himself together with microshaft and xfail and I will pirate PC games until my dying day or when they finally reales them DAY FUCKING ONE like consoles, I'm no second hand customer, I put my money where my mouth is fucking fags.
For all I know and ever known Halo:CE was an awesome game but halo 2 was a piece of shit port with lame ass controls and terrible crosshair position, I never got to finish the fight and they cut me out from the only space fps I liked at the time and told me "lol go play with a controller and pay for online!" fuck them, fuck their shit and fuck everyone, Yes I mad.
>Weebgames on PC

I just like posting anime girls
Guys he is basically saying the he felt it was stupid to ask those teams to just make what would end up being last minute shitty ports to PC, he wants windows to have games built from the ground up for windows, that's a good thing.
I still think they should get rid of the xbox and focus completely on PC gaming pushing the boundaries of game development to reaches the ps4 can't possibly compete with, Sony doesn't have any computer to fall back to, Microsoft is surely keeping windows gaming as a back up in case xbox bombs, and it is damn well on it's way to do so, them hiding sales numbers for the first time in a decade is a sign of that, I'm just tired of waiting, I'm sitting here playing Halo: The silent Cartographer and sighing at what amazing things we could build with the more recent Halo games modded.
I 'upgraded' and the day after my three-year-old PC gave me my first bluescreen in its lifetime. That's a stop sign right there. Fuck W10. I've convinced my friends to not upgrade.
i don't want to upgrade past Windows 8 because that OS already functions perfectly fine. As did 7 (eventually) and XP. The only reason people finally moved to 7/8 was because MS officially stopped supporting XP, or everyone would still be using XP, cuz there was nothing fuckin wrong with it
This constant obsession with upgrading seems stupid to me, if it does all the shit you need it to do while shitposting and playing vidya then why ever upgrade? maybe it shaves a couple seconds off your boot-up time or a program opens 2 seconds faster?
