Microsoft’s having a good generation with Windows 10 and Xbox One, according to Xbox Head Phil Spencer. He had a quick chat with his follower XBX4LFE on Twitter, who said Xbox is not performing pretty well and is basically not good enough to compete with PS4, as many users don’t own a Windows 10 PC or don’t care about the Redmond giant improving in the personal computer space.
“Strange comments. Xbox is having a good gen, our best yet. XB1S strong since launch. Can always improve but proud of where we are,” Spencer answered, confirming he’s confident with the offer Microsoft is giving to all the gamers and not just to the PC users who are all of a sudden gaining games once upon a time console exclusives.
This time, it’s easy to understand both the positions. Xbox 2017 lineup might be pretty good, with State of Decay 2, Sea of Thieves, Crackdown 3, all coming this year – together with Halo Wars 2 which has already released.
But actually we don’t have many clues about those specific titles and more importantly there seems to be a lack of good AAA single player blockbusters, a space where the upcoming and yet to be announced Forza Motorsport 7 game doesn’t seem to fit.
