Phil Spencer hasn’t given up on Xbox VR just yet


Spencer says he's thrilled with the reception to the Xbox Series X, adding that "every decision" between now and Microsoft's new console launch will see Xbox "trying to think about things in a different way". "The response has been great, but to be completely honest with could have been a disaster", he said, talking about Microsoft's surprise reveal of the Xbox Series X at last year's Game Awards. We wanted to go build a game console that was the best we could offer on a television, and offer a unique ability to creators who could use to create the best games.

Following positive financial results for Q2 US FY 2019-2020, particularly in its cloud division which will power the xCloud game streaming service, Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) share price closed up 2.62% at USD$188.70 (£146.15). And the state of engines and capability today means that developers have the capability to take full use of the gaming hardware that's in front of them.

"Obviously we build our strategy with the X Series, we start with that in mind".

Is Trump Considering A Pardon For Roger Stone?
Trump tweeted about the sentencing recommendation early Tuesday morning, saying, "This is a frightful and very unfair situation". The Justice Department has not been in touch with the White House over the matter, the official said.

"But he doesn't want to do that with the exclusion of everyone else and he also wants to do it hand in hand with developers because developers want to find the largest possible audience at the same time". And yes, there are always trade-offs. He mentions that he was pleased with the number of Japanese published games they had at E3, adding, "I've been really proud of the way that we built a partnership with nearly all the publishers there".

Xbox's wide appeal strategy doesn't just apply to players, either. "You want your friends to be able to play it". "I don't know if we're winning in Japan any time soon, but the position that we have in Japan today from a platform isn't acceptable to me". We know this because the developer just announced Warlords of NY - a meaty looking expansion that's set to launch in early March. "Let's go try to do new things'". Then the developers could shrink all those textures down for smaller downloads and let the machine learning model restore them as the game is played. GamePass and just subscriptions in general are a way to help people discover games that maybe they missed when they came out.
