A short while ago, Phil Spencer was announced as the new Head of Xbox. It’s an expanded role in which Spencer, formerly the head of Microsoft Studios EMEA, will lead all divisions of Xbox simultaneously. He recently gave Major Nelson five minutes of his time to talk about the future of Xbox, and there’s some good info there. Both “quality” good, and “yay” good.
It wasn’t too long ago that Stephen Totilo had an interview with the newly appointed Supreme Commander of Xbox, and that’s definitely worth a read, with lots of original info. But it’s also worth watching the below video, which has been circulated, but it has some important stuff from the horse’s mouth on the future of the One.
It’s easy to see why Shuhei Yoshida called him the “most human guy there” — Spencer has no qualms admitting some decisions were wrong, and knows exactly what to do to win gamers back: Remind them that Xbox is a gaming machine, first and foremost.
