Phil Spencer, executive vice president of Xbox games, unveiled Microsoft's plans to introduce Xbox X-series games to the next generation of consoles. Forget what you know about the previous generations, as the gameplay is very different.
Microsoft's Matt Booty recently talked about an exclusive sale, telling people not to expect any games to start until at least a year or two after the release of the Xbox Series X in late 2020.
The idea is that first-party games like Halo Infinite will launch on all Xbox models, but the Xbox Series X version will have the highest fidelity.
In a recent interview with Gamertag Radio, Phil Spencer explained in more detail how Microsoft made this decision, saying that it made it "player-centric, not device-centric."
He explained: "One of the benefits we get inside Microsoft is that we are close to the trend of PC development for many years." "I think today, if we look at the PC ecosystem, we will find high-end gaming PCs everywhere Some of the best, highest-fidelity games, while others can run on older PCs that are less capable a few years later. Today, the state of the engine and features means that developers have the ability to make the most of the games that precede them Hardware.
"Obviously we have a strategy based on Series X, so we have to keep this in mind-we want to build a gaming console that will be the absolute best choice we can offer on TV and provide unique features for creators So that they can use it to create the best games. However, you don't want to do this to exclude everyone else, and you also want to go hand in hand with developers, because developers want to find as many audiences as possible. Yes, always Will have the right to choose.
"I wo n’t tell every third-party studio what they must support, but in today ’s world we are seeing gamers want to play games with their friends, regardless of the device they use, people want With the most games to choose from, and developers want to take advantage of the best technology available. We developed this plan with all three of these inputs as input and we are very pleased with our position. "
