Phil Spencer on Xbox One at E3: "It's only going to get better"

Speaking to CNN's Fortune, Head of Xbox Phil Spencer dropped further hints on the big plans Microsoft has for this year's E3, and pledged his ongoing support for all Xbox exclusive games, from the indie titles coming out of the ID@Xbox program to the blockbuster behemoths like Titanfall.

"My hope is that Titanfall has affirmed one of the most fundamental principles of game development I believe in: A great game can come in all forms, shapes, and sizes," he said. "There's no set formula or checklist you need to hit. When you assemble a team with a passionate vision and arm them with the platform and tools they need, they can do amazing things. Titanfall's early success has proven that, and I think that's very inspiring.


"This E3 is important for us to show gamers our future plans for exclusives and third-party support," Spencer continued. "Right now I think we have a strong lineup of in-development exclusives, including games like Sunset Overdrive, Project Spark, Quantum Break, and Halo, in addition to some exciting titles you will hear more about at E3. It's going to be great at E3 to be able to share the games coming exclusively to Xbox One, and it's only going to get better."

When asked what role he thought indie games played in the current games market, Spencer replied: "I love all kinds of games -- independent games, blockbuster franchises, new IP -- a good game is a good game, and we want as many as possible on our platforms. Independent developers are a vital part of that equation, and their games can range from niche fan bases to AAA titles on par with blockbuster first-party games.

"Independent creators are in a unique situation where they're able to really experiment and map to their own priorities and timelines. In a way, they challenge the rest of the industry to stay on their toes and continue to think outside of the box in creative and compelling ways. As a program, ID@Xbox was designed with these developers in mind, and I personally can't wait to see what's to come." We can't either Phil - here's hoping this E3 is a big one.

Just learn from their PR mistakes of last year, and continue showing the games then it will be a good year. Seriously E3 last year was hilarious of the mistakes that they made. Ah I remember just laughing my butt off at some of the stuff they said.

Lol. That pic is great. Not so fast, though, guys. Dont forget about 'the order.' We'll be hearing more and more about how great it is as fewer and fewer sonydrones play it, too. just like infamous.

I've also heard that sony plans to render TWO old man faces on screen this year at e3. So, i mean, it's not like we dont have anything to be concerned about.

Microsoft's first party devs are joke next to Sony's, they're all unproven and some of them aren't even doing console development ffs. I really don't think the timed exclusive thing is going to pan out for MS this gen.

can't get much worse for either console, well it can if they don't announce some good new exclusives.
