"Phil Spencer was interviewed by Major Nelson today to talk about his new role as the head of Xbox. Phil makes it clear that he sees Xbox as a game console above all else.

Weíve transcribed this quote for you below. This is a response to a fan question that asks; what are you (Phil) going to do differently?

I think what Iím going to say is Iím going to focus on certain parts of the business. And, when you take the person whoís been building games for oh so many years and you put them as head of Xbox you are going to get a real games focus on what Xbox is about. For me, Xbox is 1st and foremost a games console.

Todayís game consoles do more than just game, but thatís how I think about it. I think the core of this product has to be as a great game console.

You can check out the full interview via podcast here."

I don't believe him. Hopefully for gamers he makes good on those words.

He said the complete opposite last year, which is why there's no credibility is this statement.

They designed the project with multimedia ahead of gaming, and it's shown.

What, so does that mean it wasn't a Game console before Phil became head of Xbox?

lol, literally proved all those who said otherwise before, wrong.
