Phil Spencer: “I Want To Give People A Choice”
Phil Spencer, in an interview with Giant Bomb, talked about Xbox One backwards compatibility, exclusives, and how he wants to give people the choice to be able to play the games they want to play where they want to play them.
“As a gamer I play games on PC… I want to be able to play the games where I want to play them… I want to give people a choice.”
“There’s this kind of back channel frankly I don’t really subscribe to of you need to keep people from playing in certain places, somehow that’s the answer… I want to give people choice and with Xbox I want it to be the best TV gaming experience you can have but frankly if I’m not on my TV and I’m on my laptop, and want to play killer instinct, I want to play gear, I want to play fable, I should be able to do that and to try force people to buy something by excluding their choice.”
