Microsoft is in the middle of a true storm after the Spring Showcase where it became pretty clear, according to many people commenting on the Internet, the platform holder is shifting its mid-long term focus on PC gaming rather than Xbox One. Of course, Xbox gamers are not appreciating this at all and flame over social networks and forums is spreading.
A Twitter user, linking a Spencer video interview, claimed the Xbox Head said you need a Titan X “to run games at the same resolution as an XB1”. @XboxP3 took the occasion to clarify his statements and point out this was “my mistake”. “The comment is wrong”.
“My point is from a performance/price standpoint console is a great value”, Spencer said discussing the topic. On one hand, we think, he is not wrong: building up a good PC is harder for those who usually don’t care about hardware, and this is the biggest part of the gamers, while consoles offer them a chance to have a fixed hardware they can enjoy from the first boot.
Let us know your opinion in the comments below. We know this is a particularly tough topic to discuss as people usually care much more about the platforms they currently have, so fanboys are just around the corner, but we still hope a good discussion is possible.
@FlaxeLaxen No and the 2x comment is wrong, my mistake. My point is from a performance/price standpoint console is a great value.
