Microsoft has made some bold choices recently with every Xbox One exclusive now going to be available on Windows 10. Despite this new approach, Microsoft’s Phil Spencer is still trying to say that consoles and PCs are two different things.
During a new interview with The Guardian, Spencer says this move is trying not to convert console players to play on PC and vice versa. It’s just a way to make games more accessible for PC owners.
He said: “PC gaming and console gaming are different, and the customer segments have capabilities and expectations that are unique to the platforms they play on.
“But I bristle at the idea we’re bringing the platforms ‘together’. It’s not that I’m trying to turn PC gamers into console gamers or console gamers into PC gamers. We just know, and I’m sure you’re tracking it, the health of PC gaming is incredibly high right now, and we know some of our best and most active customers on Xbox One are also PC gamers – so we see this opportunity to service the customer and where they actually play, and they want to stay connected to their friends wherever they are
Gaming has changed a lot over the years as technology continues to progress at a rapid rate. This is a reason why Microsoft is releasing Project Scorpio next year and Sony is making the PS4 Neo. Anyway, it’s still interesting how the Xbox One is no longer going to receive true exclusives from this point onward. If you have a capable Windows 10 PC, you can play all of the Xbox One’s first party titles.
