Phil Spencer Responds


Phil Spencer was speaking with Eurogamer about Andrew House's comment made near the end of Sony's Gamescom presentation.

"While others have shifted their message and changed their story, we were consistent in maintaining policies and a model that is fair and in tune with consumer desires."

In which Phil Spencer told Eurogamer:

"The two-way conversation that we have with gamers is critical, if we weren't able to listen then I don't think we're really creating the ecosystem that means people want to come into the platform. Other people will do and say what they're going to say. FIne. We're running our program."

Phil Harrison "Best lineup of games in the history of consoles"

Phil Harrison Corporate Vice President of Microsoft, said that the Xbox One launch lineup of games is the best lineup in console history.

In an interview with CVG, Harrison stated:

"Ultimately it's the games that make Xbox One stand out, and we have the best lineup of games--we think--in the history of consoles, we clearly have strong exclusive games, and we have partnered with EA to bring FIFA to Europe in a very meaningful way. Football in Europe is the sport, and in some countries it's the religion."

Those launch titles include Call of Duty:Ghosts, Battlefield 4, Killer Instinct, Madden NFL 25, NBA Live 14, FIFA 14, Dead Rising 3, Fighter Within, Ryse:Son of Rome and Forza Motorsport 5.


Starting with Phil Spencer's comments.

Oh Phil, you give the human race to much credit.

As much as I want to not see either company and gamers alike not throw mud at each other for sticking with a "team" it's not going to happen.

But come on, Microsoft and Phil Spencer should have seen this coming, with all the "180s" Microsoft has been doing for the past few months this was giving anyone from Sony the perfect ammunition to use against you. It's like if Dracula handed Van Helsing a wooden stake, held it against his heart and told Van Helsing.

"Hit right here"

As for Phil Harrison's comments.

Hold your horses there Phil 2.

Look you may have some good launch games but they are not the best in console history.

Dead Rising 3 does not have my interest, I've been playing Dead Rising 2 extensively for the past few days for review and for the fun of it, I would easily pass this game up for something else.

Ryse:Son of Rome? Still looks pretty bland, even with the new Gladiator Mode footage, still looks very boring.

Forza Motorsport 5? If there is anyone out there who wants to play the game that doesn't have an internet connection, will not be able to complete the game.

Best in console history is far fetched. I understand that he's part of the company and is supposed to promote the products made by the company but don't over exaggerate.

Before I finish this off I want to do a Q&A with you guys.

I've been doing this blog for quite some time now, in fact yesterday was the one year anniversary of when I first started the blog.

Ask me anything about the blog, why I started the blog, how do I decide when it's time to review a game, what games I prefer to play. My take on the Xbox One vs PS4, what else besides game reviews do I post on the blog etc.

It's a special thing I want to do for the one year I've been doing this and also because I'm interested to hear from anyone who's been a regular reader of my blog, if there is anyone out there who regularly reads my posts.

I do this for fun, share it and let the cards fall where they may, I don't know if I have regular readers so I'm very interested to find out if I do.

That's it for tonight guys, thank you for reading and ask away.
