Xbox’s Phil Spencer Thinks Sony Will Have a Good E3: “Great Brand;” Challenges Pachter’s Predictions

by on June 4, 2014 1:14 AM 420

There have been conflicting predictions on the outcome of E3 next week. Some predict great things, while others expect a rather bland show. One of those that predicted a mediocre outcome is Wedbush Securities Analyst Michael Pachter, but Xbox Division head honcho Phil Spencer took it in stride on Twitter.

Ahh that @michaelpachter guy, he’s a friend. I’ll see him after our briefing, we’ll see if our show matches his predictions.

Spencer was also asked if Sony is somewhat intimidated by his new role, but renewed his appreciation for the competition, and mentioned that he thinks they’ll have a good E3 as well:

I don’t think Sony is intimidated. Sony is great brand and strong team. Competition is good, they’ll have a good E3.

He also explained that the Xbox team is in high spirits and working hard, as the big test approaches:

Thanks, XBOX team is all working hard. There is a renewed sense of belief we are on a good path here, good vibe in the halls.

As a final additional bonus, Spencer also stated that pushing for backwards compatibility (for Xbox One) is a “good push.”

It’s not the first time that Phil Spencer expresses positive thoughts about Microsoft’s competitors, and it’s definitely nice to see him heading into E3 with this kind of sportsmanship. Wouldn’t it be nice if the fans were able to imitate it, and enjoy the show as a celebration of gaming, instead of a bloody war?

    Nothing new here

    Phil Spencer is the only guy i like at Microsoft. him and Shuhei Yoshida are actually gamers and care about gaming. i know both got the best interests for gamers at heart. if Bill Gates was the one who was running the Xbox Division it will be a whole another story but with Phil Spencer he can improve and make it a TRUE competitor to PlayStation.

    • The Moeshit

      Of course. Spencer and Yoshida are(for Spencer’s case, was) the heads of first party studios management.

    • Dr. Manhattan

      I thought Spencer was a complete arse hat before he took over but he’s done pretty good since then so +1 to him.

  • Negi Springfield

    I knew it ! Microsoft and Pachter were cahoots !

    • GodGamerDerp

      They’re past 8 million by now.

      All 3 are going to have a good show, anyone non-biased has been saying this for a while.

      • HardcoreGamer

        Ya right 8 million my butt still 7 million and I don’t buy Sonygaf posts so good try

        • superkarma

          Still 7 million? The PS4 has been selling, on average, about 1 million per month. It was announced it already passed 7 million almost 2 months ago. Expect an 8 million or more announcement at E3.

        • Porcu Peth

          vgchartz says 7.8 and they’ve been undertracking PS4. SO yes, definitely has reached 8 million by now. versus less than 4.5 million XB1… *wink*

          • Negi Springfield

            ” I`m pleased to announce that Xbox One has SHIPPED 5 Million units as of now ”

            LOL !

          • xbox1rules23

            vgchartz is inaccurate moron

          • Porcu Peth

            yes because they benefit the Xbox as proven by NPD. Which is why the gap between PS4 and XB1 is even bigger than they show

            problem? umad bro?

          • WingsOfChicken

            VGchartz has been accurate all generation so far. They’ve only over estimated the PS4. That’s it.

        • Neil Riley

          it’s knocking on the door of 8 million. Probably 8 million by E3. Lets put it another way. It’s quite rightly well ahead of the competition.

          • Dr. Manhattan

            Easiest way to put it, Sony is kicking arse and taking names.

        • GodGamerDerp

          Your entire post history is lying and trolling. You have no clue about sales, just acting like a fanboy.

          They’ll announce 8+ million at E3 or earlier, I’m constantly right.

      “enjoy the show as a celebration of gaming, instead of a bloody war.”

    • Ryan 741

      That picture actually make me sad, about 80% of these guys probably got made redundant or replaced with cheaper staff

      • GodGamerDerp

        Ridiculous FUD. The games division has overall been growing, cutbacks are in other areas of the company.

        • Ryan 741

          Sadly they are all linked hence the massive loses. Think of the Playstation division as a finger in crumbling dam.

          • GodGamerDerp

            No, you are making ridiculous exaggerations and FUD.

          • They Call Me Senpai

            Crumbling dam? Nothing’s crumbling except for your comment.

          • Ryan 741

            I like Sony, I genuinely hope they survive even if its just like Sega.

          • JustGaming

            Step away from the keys, son.

            You mad bro?

            LOL no, it’s some sound advice. You are making a world-class fool out of yourself.

          • Ryan 741

            I’m afraid its you Sir, that’s making a fool of yourself. You have my condolences.

          • GodGamerDerp

            It’s sad PS4 is so successful MS fanboys are left wishing Sony would go bankrupt so it stops dominating the console market.

          • Ryan 741

            Anybody wishing a company goes bankrupt and people losing their jobs is just ignorant and dumb.

          • GodGamerDerp

            Haven’t looked in a mirror lately?

            Sony isn’t going bankrupt, there are no huge layoffs in the Gaming division, you’re spreading FUD.

            Yes they’ve sold their PC division and closed some Sony stores, those were both bleeding money.

          • Ryan 741

            Eh what? That pretty much what I said. While the PS division makes money its a drop in the ocean compared to the loses.

          • GodGamerDerp

            But you pointed to a picture of Kaz Hirai and Gaming Division employees and said “about 80% of these guys probably got made redundant or replaced with cheaper staff” despite no major layoffs in the Gaming Division.

          • Ryan 741

            Exactly, hope they were not laid off.

          • Sucka Free

            Isn’t that what you’ve been doing?

          • Ryan 741

            Not at all.

          • Sucka Free

            You’re right, you are not sincerely wishing harm on Sony, you are just trolling

            No Ryan, its you making a fool out of yourself, upvoting yourself and everything.

            “support starts at home”, lol, right. And there’s nothing obsessive about it, takes a sec to put the mouse over it to see. But play on player.

            Its better than nothing right?

        • Jessie Bristol

          I believe Sony should focus primarily on their PlayStation division and their Film division and just cut all the dead weight that is losing them money. For every bit of profit that their PlayStation division brings in, other sectors of Sony seem to piss it away. If they focus on their strengths they would come out better for it.

          It seems they have started to do that once Kaz Hirai took over Sony.

    • Christian

      Hi Kaz!

  • Redinferno124

    Here that fanboys? This “console war” you all rage on about is about as real as Roronoa Zoro being elected Secretary of Defense.

    • GodGamerDerp

      All the rage by a few hateful fanboys on disqus and misterxmedia’s blog has little or no impact on sales.

      • Redinferno124

        Can you please explain who the hell misterxmedia is? I’ve heard his name pop up so much and rarely has it been in response to something good.

        • GodGamerDerp

          Google it. He thinks Xbox is secretly more powerful than PS4 and constantly lies about Sony and PS4. He has a cult following of hateful fanboys on his blog.

          • Redinferno124

            Holy shit I think half my brain cells committed suicide after visiting his blog or whatever. All of that was pure speculation or utter nonsense. I have enough respect in the Xbox community to trust they aren’t this stupid. I want that 2 and a half minutes of my life back now!

          • superkarma

            Sadly, there are plenty Xbox fanboys (like Vious) who think his blog is a “great community”.

            His little livejournal blog has spawned too many idiotic fanboys and trolls, it’s insane. Just last night I saw one of them saying how some type of technology (can’t remember what he was rambling about) is getting unlocked on the X1 in 2017, because that’s when the NDA expires.

          • Redinferno124

            But isn’t MisterX just as guilty of making promises that never get fulfilled as any PR team? He also made it sound like MS has never used prerendered footage. If you want to accuse anyone accuse Ubisoft.

          • superkarma

            Trying to make sense of anything relating to MisterX will just frustrate you further. Don’t attempt to bring logic and common sense to the table when it comes to him and his fanboy following.

          • Redinferno124

            I can’t help but feel bad for those guys. Makes it sound like we’ve never called sony out on its bullshit before when that’s what many of us did for most of gen 7.

          • Sucka Free

            They are falling behind, it’s kind of unhinged a few of them. To people like that, it’s not enough to have a great console. It has to be the very best or it sucks. There’s no middle ground with them at all. So rather than do the sensible thing, which is to just be happy with the XB1 as it is or trade up to the PS4, they come up with these crazy ideas…

  • megablast16

    Ah, the old praise the competition to lull them into a false sense of security ploy eh Phil.

  • CervantesPR

    if don matrick was still in charge xbox one maybe even be at wii u levels of failure, as far as phil, dude seems to know what he is doing.

    i still cant get his face and reaction out of my mind whenever i hear about him lol too funny that face and reaction at last years E3 lol

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PzDsYEPkSc4

    • superkarma

      Lmao, that shit was hilarious. I actually felt bad for him.

      The place absolutely erupted when Sony dropped that bomb. Good times.

      • Redinferno124

        Was that booing actually real? please tell me that was some really good sound editing or something. Cause if it was real, what a train-wreck lol!

        • superkarma

          Nah, it was definitely real. I remember it from watching the livestreams, lol. It really was awkward to watch.

          • Redinferno124

            I remember watching it but I don’t recall this part being this bad. I’m dead serious here, I’m really shocked right now.

          • superkarma

            Lol yup. There was that and then the Killer Instinct mess at EVO:

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vKifOwcjgYg

            To be fair, though, the EVO crowd is a bit biased, so it’s not really a surprise they got that reaction.

          • Redinferno124

            Yeah I chalked that one up to the EVO crowd being EVO.

        • CervantesPR

          the video was edited obviously but the booing was in fact real, there was even someone who said “xbox sucks” in the crowd and the security guard almost kicked him out lol

          • Redinferno124

            I thought that was just a rumor? Like someone thought they heard something they really didn’t.

        • Dr. Manhattan

          Think about it, if you were at that event would you have cheered?? I would have been pissed.

      • alffellfromsky

        Lmao, tells me that you have no class and are not a real gamer. What sony did last year at E3 was a disgrace to this industry. Microsoft complemented sony for the success of the last of us and for the launch of the ps4, they paid them back with that type of mud slinging because microsoft was trying a different approach with the drm so that company’s like gamestop will stop robbing customers and developers out of their money which also tells me you know nothing about drm’s and steam. Just like gta is the highest selling game in history, while really great games like azura’s wrath, shadows of the dame, ninja blade, vanquished, and Binary Domain get ignored by so called gamers. This industry has gone down the toilet because of people with you kind of mind set and developers have to keep closing down because of this type of attitude in the gaming community it very sad to see such a great and different art form dying right before our eyes and all we have to say is lmao. Dame what a shame.

        • superkarma

          Oh wow…Microsoft complemented Sony? Lets give them a round of applause. What about during the PS3 launch when Microsoft were the ones “mud slinging”? I guess you forgot about that, right? I already explained to this to your fellow Xbox fanboy above. I’m not going to do the same with you, since you appear even more delusional than he did.

          Anyways, I have no idea how finding the crowd reaction to Microsoft’s blunder hilarious means I have no class and I’m not a real gamer…but ok. Anywho, nice troll account, fanboy. I think you should stick to your misterx livejournal blog.

          • alffellfromsky

            First of all I clearly said that sony was unprofessional, if you think that’s funny that tells me that your immature. Please tell me when microsoft throw a low blow at ps3 if you have proof by all means post it up. I’ll be waiting, and I am difinitly not trolling nor a fanboy I’m a 40 year old gaming vet, just because you can’t read an educated comment by fellow gamer is not my problem. Go back to school while you still have a chance. Oh yeah smart guy how is buying a game for 65 dollars today and then returning it tomorrow it’s only worth 25 or some cases 20 dollars is not repping people off and then reselling the same game back to customers for 55 or 57 dollars that only gamestop get the profits from. YOU SOUND RETARDED!!!!!!!! last but not least I never said that I agree with I clearly said you do not understand DRM’s and steam and I understood what microsoft was trying to do and this goes to everybody that posted a stupid or smart a$$ remark and thinks everything is a conspiracy. Yes microsoft would make more money and so would developers and gamer would pay less in the long run because the fees would be small like steam. Also for the people that have financil limitation I understand why the DRM’s is not cool but for the people that can afford it their just being cheap. The society we live in today wants everything for free, and that’s why so many mediums keep disappearing. So I may be delusional but at least I can understand what I read.

            But their damage control is always the same lmao shits entertaining, then comes E3’2014. Cant wait to see who knocks it out of the park at these Conferences.

          • Sucka Free

            LOL @ that gif. I suspect that MS will win the day this year, but Sony will have a good show too. I said it earlier, MS needs the win or they will be in danger of falling too far behind

          • GodGamerDerp

            They’ll both have good games to show, no doubt about it.

          • DEO エリヤデボンオットリ

            What gets me is Nintendo still has an advantage over they’re competitors which they should take very seriously with the WiiU, that’s if they really want to sell their Console. We’re not seeing any any real major title’s for PS4 and XB1 until 2015 from what I’m hearing, the last thing I want to do is place them back in the box until then.

          • Sucka Free

            Yeah, now would be the time for Nintendo to rain down the games, new Metroid, new Zelda, new Pokemon, new Smash Bros… boom. They could steal the show from both of the big boys.

          • DEO エリヤデボンオットリ

            Yeah that would be something… wow man.. Megaton’s to be dropped everywhere at this years show floor gonna need KeighlyZilla aka the DoritDEW Pope to restore natural balance & order if things tend to get out of hand, then there was ReggieFils-A-Mech. I would imagine this Years E3 to be better than the last one now since everything is pretty much laid on the table. I say bring on the new gaming experiences and entertainment.

          • DEO エリヤデボンオットリ

            Sorry Dude the anticipation for a sequel to the Legendary’s latest GodZilla film and the things that are about to take place at E3’2014 tends to rub off on me whenever Megatons is mentioned.

            Oh yeah, this year will definitely be better now that the console launches are out of the way, it will be all about the games

            Yep

          • Fweds

            Sony to announce more indie games to cover up the fact they have nothing for 2014.

            Meanwhile MS are still announcing big titles for 2014 BEFORE the E3.

          • Sucka Free

            The closer we get to E3 the more desperate you trolls sound. Wait and see like everyone else

          • GodGamerDerp

            Wrong and hateful fanboy shill.

          • GodGamerDerp

            Microsoft and Mattrick, Hyrb, Penello, Greenberg, Medhi, etc.
            have been making the arrogant PR blunders, anti-consumer sentiment, spin, and BS this gen, not Sony. That’s why PS4 is ~3.5 million ahead in sales.

          • cozomel

            I would be ashamed to admit i was 40 yrs old if i were you, cuz you’re acting like a childish fanboy, who’s barely making any sense. You’re all upset over that video even though its the truth, because you are to in love with MS to see that. Its pathetic really. Now grow up and stop acting like such a little you-know-what.

          • Tony

            You should look in the mirror and tell yourself to grow up. You’re no different clown LMAO

          • Tony

            Someone is little sensitive. Who cares man it’s about the games. Consumers win.

        • Creed
        • GodGamerDerp

          Nice meltdown.

          Consumers don’t want 24 hour drm check-ins. Doesn’t matter how much you spin and shill for it, it’s a business failure. End of story.

          Microsoft has been making the arrogant PR blunders, spin, and BS this gen, not Sony. That’s why PS4 is ~3.5 million ahead in sales.

        • Dr. Manhattan

          How on earth is Gamestop robbing customers?? That place is epic for us, we’ve never had it so good. Now from a developers perspective I understand but let’s be real, MS only wanted to institute DRM as it felt it could lure mass developers to XBO since they could make more money since their games could not be resold, not like they were trying to help their customers.

          • Tony

            Trade in value are ridiculous. You might be good with the trade in for systems, but when you get to the games, you get robbed especially when you buy games in the stores and pay taxes for them. It really adds up.

        • They Call Me Senpai

          The only fact in your comment was Microsoft complimenting Sony on TLOU. The rest just showed how biased and blind you are, especially if you think Microsoft’s DRM was going to help anyone but themselves.

          You might wanna unrustle those jimmies of yours, buddy.

          • Tony

            Not really! I think people over reacted cause it was DRM. Microsoft had a awesome plan with the family sharing and the way you trade games. To me it was different and revolutionary. I prefer disc base, but their direction is gonna happen. The DRM plan was just ahead of time and social acceptance. Again alffellfromsky prove his/her point with you bad mouthing. I think you’re the one that’s blind XD hypocrite

    • GodGamerDerp

      He really had a “we’re fucked” look on his face when he announced the price and the audience was nearly dead silent with a few boos.

      • Redinferno124

        lol someone said be quite in the audience. How did I miss this the first time? Also I realize Phil’s presentation was edited down, but he paused to many times during this. He was poorly prepared for E3 last year. Hopefully he feels more comfortable this time.

      • islan

        That video is heavily edited.

        http://youtu.be/B2zslQ9PWPQ

        Still not a great response, the applause came more off as an “okay”.

        • Dr. Manhattan

          The response came off more as a “clap because I feel bad for the guy”. lol

      • Dr. Manhattan

    • megablast16

      Yeah last year wasn’t great for MS was it? lol

    • chrisredfield31

      I’m not gonna lie I wanted to punch him in the face (along with that snake Don Mattrick) but to be fair, Phil has created a much better image of himself.

    • Neil Riley

      I feel sorry for him now but at the time It was cringe worthily hilarious.

    • someguy

      the crowd was none too pleased that day

      • GodGamerDerp

        If PS4 has some real competition, it isn’t showing in sales yet. PS4 is still regularly outselling it more than 2:1 globally every month, with a ~3.5 million sales lead. It hasn’t outsold the Wii U yet.

        • Orichalon Hades

          are you talking about the X1 or PS4?
          Cuz if its PS4 i thought it already outsold the WiiU.
          (well according to VGChart they did, i know i know, unreliable and all that jazz)

          • GodGamerDerp

            PS4 outsold the Wii U a while ago, Xbox One hasn’t yet.

    • Dr. Manhattan

      Man that face, he looked mortified to say that price.

  • Stranger On The Road

    Good man; double thump up.

    Now everyone together: JRPGs, JRPGs, JRPGs…. for western release.

  • Deadpool

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, calling Patcher an ‘analyst’ is an insult to the word itself. The guy just gets high, and spews random “predictions”, almost none of which have ever come true.

    • Sucka Free

      Yeah, he occasionally gets something right, like when he’s predicting no brainer, obvious stuff that everyone already knows…like this

    • chrisredfield31

      Phil’s been president for awhile now, he’s been cool towards Sony and also disowning the Xbox fanboys that we hate so much. Yet the Xbox fanboys are STILL at it.

    • Tony

      Amen bro!

  • Ryan 741

    Remember when it was second job Sony? Its just MS turn at the moment, it all works out in the end.

  • PachterStation

    Even before E3, Phil Spencer shot himself in the foot with the recent One price drop (a very poor start). £349.99 without Kinect and a game, it isn’t enough. Considering that the PS4 sells for the same price (it can be picked up discounted for £330), most looking to upgrade would go for a PS4. But both the One and PS4 could do with dropping to £299.99, more so the One. Fingers crossed that there’s typical discounting, bringing the One down to £300, but I can’t see it. But both the One and PS4 haven’t delivered. It’s going to take some time to get even a decent amount of quality games on both consoles. Good job the 360 and PS3 are still out there.

    Phil as well as MS as a whole are very classy. While Sony likes to take childish shots at there competitors. That is the truth! and has been for the past decade ironically its rite around the sametime Sonys company began on its downward slide…It speaks volumes of where both of these companies are at as a whole, financially and business wise speaking.

    • superkarma

      Lol, you’re an adorable little fanboy.

      Competitors take shots at each other all the time. It’s called marketing. When your competition is down, you let the public know about it. That’s the way of the business world. I guess you forgot how when the tables were turned during the PS3 launch, Microsoft took digs at Sony and the PS3? I guess you also forgot about all the Microsoft commercials that poke fun at Apple devices?

      I guess when Microsoft does it, it’s acceptable and classy…but when Sony does it, it’s childish. You fanboys have some interesting logic.

      • HardcoreGamer

        Ouch butthurt little PS fanboy lolz

        • superkarma

          Why would I be butthurt? Lol.

        • GodGamerDerp

          Worthless feces flinging troll.

      • DIGITALxALCHEMIST

        Taking shots is one but being down rite immature about it is another…

        And about your fanboy remark..I own all next gen consoles and love all 3system but prefer my PC over any of my consoles. I like playing games and i refuse to be small minded like yourself and deprive myself of great games because i chose to warship a company who dont know i exist..

        • superkarma

          I don’t care what consoles you own. That means absolutely nothing. Simply owning all consoles doesn’t magically make you less of a fanboy or less biased towards one over the other. Your above comment made it very clear you’re obviously a Microsoft fanboy. There’s nothing wrong with that. Embrace it.

          Again, there’s nothing immature about what Sony has said/done. It’s no different than what Microsoft has done time and time again. Are you saying the Microsoft commercials poking fun at Apple are mature and classy? Is taking a huge boat plastered with “Xbox 360 loves you” all over it and crashing the European PS3 launch party considered classy and mature? Is saying Sony has done nothing with their online classy and mature? Is saying the PS3 has no killer games classy and mature? Is sending a bunch of beer to CVG offices to demonstrate the price difference between the 360 and PS3 classy and mature?

          • DIGITALxALCHEMIST

            Your clueless! its that narrow small minded thinking where you wont get it till you shed your train of thought..Go play games and enjoy it no matter what system you own..

          • superkarma

            I’m clueless, but you’re not going to answer any of my questions, but rather just dodge the facts? Microsoft took many digs at Sony surrounding the PS3 launch. Now it’s Sony’s turn to do the same thing back to them. It’s fair game all around.

            When a company leaves themselves open to it, the other will take that opportunity, run with it, and use it as ammo for their marketing. Again, that’s the way of the business world. If you weren’t such a fanboy, you would realize this. I don’t see Phil or Microsoft crying about it, so why are you?

          • GodGamerDerp

            I am a”Fanboy” of games. I can go play inFAMOUS 2nd son, Titanfall(pc) Mario Kart or Dead rising3 and luv all my plats and games..Why cause i choose to put games ahead of any crazy allegence to a company…As i stated earlier i will not deprive myself of Great games on any system..If thats being fanboy! i”m guilty as charged

    • Jecht_Sin

      Classy? This is how MS treated its loyal customers, not just the competition:
      - “Major Nelson” (what an idiotic nickname) nearly getting to hands with a fan over the always online BS
      - You don’t have an internet connection? Buy an Xbox 360!!
      - The Kinect is an integral part of the Xbox One and as such it can’t be removed (we have seen it indeed..).
      - The best one: “Deal with it”

      Just the first few which came to my mind. Feel free to add the many others around.

  • http://avluis.net/ Luis Alvarado

    While I personally don’t really like the guy much, just the face really (really want to punch it), I am glad he is in charge of the Xbox team now.
    I take it he put those people in their places (in Microsoft HQ) and could no longer sit by and just watch the Xbox brand become the joke it made itself to be after E3.
    The man knows what he needs to do to get people to buy the hardware and it looks like he is doing just that.
    Props to him (still want to punch his face though).

    • Orichalon Hades

      “really want to punch it”

    • chrisredfield31

      It’s called being passive aggressive. It’s Xbox fanboys taking shots on Sony fans everywhere they go and everything they so. You see Sony fans defending their platform and that’s what you call vile. If anything, the Xbox fanboys are vile for trolling Sony fans.

  • Jecht_Sin

    That Phil Spencer is the best thing it could happen to the Xbox. Honestly. For once I don’t feel like we are dealing with a total retarded.

    • superkarma

      Agreed. Even though Larry Hryb calls himself a true gamer, I don’t believe it. He still comes off as a complete douche. Phil, on the other hand, actually comes off as relatable and down to earth. He’s exactly what Microsoft/Xbox needs. As far as I see it, he’s the only one that’s not just some corporate suit.

      • Vious

        about you not believing that Larry Hyrb is a gamer, he actually has a decent amount of achievements and gamerscrore and has huge amount of games played. whether you believe it or not, the guy does play a lot of games. so i’d call him a gamer.

        • superkarma

          Yes, he plays games…but I don’t consider him a true gamer, which he has called himself plenty of times in the past. Even still, his overall attitude points to him being an obnoxious douche who acts as if he’s better than everyone else. That’s just the vibe I get from him.

          • Vious

            wait…then what is a “true gamer”?

          • superkarma

            It’s all subjective. I don’t consider him a “true gamer” based on his attitude towards other gamers. As I said, it’s just the vibe I get from him. He comes off as a huge douche, always knowing what’s best/right, etc.

          • Vious

            I think the key phrase in all you’ve said was “it’s all subjective”, seeing that “true gamer” literally has no real meaning. because if playing lots of games doesn’t denote you a true gamer then I don’t know what does. and as far as a I know, being a gamer has nothing to do with sportsmanship.

          • superkarma

            As I said, subjective. I don’t consider him a true gamer, you apparently do. That’s fine. I see him as nothing more than a corporate suit who plays games. Does he even own any other consoles other than Xbox? I highly doubt it.

          • Vious

            xbox and PC (as far as I know)
            phil owns xbox, pc, ps4 and wiiu
            - by your comment, i’m taking it the only one at sony who’s a true gamer from your definition is Shu yoshida, correct?

          • superkarma

            Yeah, that’s what I figured. I didn’t say anything about owning other consoles makes him a true gamer or not. Don’t get ahead of yourself. I also never asked what Phil owns, as I already said how I feel about him.

            As I’ve said many times now (but you feel the need to continually argue) to me, Larry comes off as a douche on more than one level. You sitting here defending his honor isn’t going to change that fact.

          • Vious

            not won’t argue on a subjective matter.

            He is not defending his honor. You guys are talking about what’s a true gamer. You were basically asking what he owns in your last comment. So stupid. There is this person name superkarma and he is what I call a “stupid gamer.” I know people it’s subjective but he comes off as a douche. As I’ve said many times now (but you feel the need to continually be stupid), I’ve defend gamers as gamers. But you can’t change stupid gamers and that’s a fact.

          • Tony

            Do you own any other console other than playstation or wii u? I highly doubt it. Sorry for my subjective comment LOL

    • Jecht_Sin

      You called MS “classy” while slaughtering Sony at the same time. Which is a pretty fanboyish thingy to say. The only reason why MS didn’t take any shot at Sony is simply because.. They couldn’t. They had no material for it. So much that dear mr. Phil Spencer above ended up copying piece by piece the PS4 offer. Which consists of:

      - Dropping the Kinect
      - Selling the Xbone at $399 (same PS4′s price)
      - Dropping the paywall
      - Giving out free games on XBL Gold with exactly the same modality of PS Plus.

      Am I blaming Phil Spencer for it? No, because it was the most sensitive thing to do. But that happened only because the PS4 is crushing the Xbone. If mankind was dumb enough to give the leadership to the Xbone now we would be dealing with always connected consoles, paywalls for any network service in the console, no free games, nothing.

      • Vious

        the games are free, they’re rented.

        • Jecht_Sin

          It’s a subscription service, not a rental one. Which grows longer one stays subscribed.

          And whatever it is, it’s the second coming in video gaming. Once you’ll start to enjoy it you will finally understand the meaning of having an huge backlog.

          • Vious

            rented = they’re not yours to keep forever, lose your subscription, lose the games.
            I don’t think I’ve said anything wrong when I say they’re not free, they’re rented.

          • Jecht_Sin

            They are free on top of the subscription. MS as well is calling them “free games”. What? Do you mean your lovely MS is lying now? :p

            And anyway, with digital games one own F nothing. Only an unlimited time license. Not the game.

          • Sucka Free

          • alffellfromsky

            So you justify glorifide rentals but you have a problem with DRM’s you sound like a hypocrite. The only reason xb1 is using this method is because their are not enough games out yet for this genertion, once they have enough games in the market they will the same like xb 360 were you access to the games at all times weather your subcribed or not , online o not or take them with ever you go. That is the difference between owning and having glorifide rental especially if you like the games. BUDDY!!!!!!!!!!!

          • Craig Sloan

            Games with Gold on X1 is the same as PS Plus now. You don’t get to keep them if your sub expires.

          • https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQNHs-Wpr24PIsKl5CV8Xtw Vulcan Spectre

            Why does everyone think that when you let your subscription end, you lose the games forever? You don’t, the minute you renew you can play them all again. Letting your subscription expire is stupid, especially when you have a PS4 and require it to play certain games. Microsoft is no different in that regard anymore, the whole “Sony is renting you games” argument doesn’t work, because Microsoft is exactly the same.

        • Tony

          I think the biggest irony out of all this. The subscription free game service is a form of DRM. People are too stupid to realize that lol

            yup i called it, you’ve got comments going back 6 hrs hahaha i guess it takes you a while to read what phil had to say about ps4. what a sad life. i can’t argue with you guys anymore. you same 2-3 people are in every article anyway so I’m sure we’ll cross paths rather soon.

          • superkarma

            And here you are…now 34 minutes and counting going back and forth with me. If I have such a “sad life”, what does that say about you?

          • disqus_TCr2DiTW3m

            alright one more comment. 34 minutes while I’m waking up/getting ready for work is a little different than 6-7 hrs. but i know, you guys are always right…see ya buddy

          • superkarma

            Ahh, ok, I see. As long as you had a good reason (in your eyes) to troll, then that totally justifies it. It’s ok. You wasted 34 minutes trolling and whining like a little baby. I now understand why you’re projecting your feelings outwards.

          • GodGamerDerp

            Get help, you literally hate people for preferring a different console.

          • 3rdworldgamer

            well. you should have just read the article and not comment. like i said above, it goes both ways. Xbox/MS fanboys are “like flies on shit with Sony articles”.

          • DEO エリヤデボンオットリ

            Wow really on a site called DualShockers …Okay so you mentioned xbox news am I getting this right lmao …ohh the irony I’m in tears. Why contradict yourself on calling other users out on pointless terms for that matter. All I read here in the Article is good guy Phil given props to his competitor prepping for E3’2014, in regards to whatever Pachter mentioned. Read the comments and mainly you from the rest of User’s comment’s come off as agitated for reasons I could care less.

        • Sucka Free

          Yeah, you are a bit boring

        • Sucka Free

          Here’s a thought, why don’t you comment on the article instead of worrying about what other people are doing…

          • Tony

            You’re doing the same thing! *facepalm*

          • Sucka Free

            Hey, look at my history, calling out trolls like you is not all that I do. I’m relevant to the topic when you fools will let me be

    • 3rdworldgamer

      it goes both ways

    • GodGamerDerp

      Is someone saying something that would get them banned? Or are you just complaining that people are making comments on an article?

    • Redinferno124

      I like meat!

  • Tauriq Moosa

    As a PS4 owner, I want Microsoft to have a mindblowing conference. Give Sony proper competition so everyone wins. Spencer is amazing and actually a reason I really am interested in Xbox One (but as a non-American, non-TV watcher, the Box simply has no appeal.)

    • DEO エリヤデボンオットリ

      Spencer is pretty much the best thing that happened to Microsoft Xbox division in a long while, the gaming Industry and its consumers can thank SCEA/J/E for that. Now only if Nintendo can follow suite and put one foot forward and quit the baby steps, but first let’s all see what play’s out at this years Electronic EXPO.

    • Sucka Free

      I think that is how it will go. I’m a Sony fan too but I think that MS will knock the ball out of the park this time. It fits the back and forth pattern that they seem to have. MS needs to have a solid win or they will be in danger of falling behind. I don’t think anyone wants that

  • DEO エリヤデボンオットリ

    Why is this Pachther guy still relevant, He’s barely ever accurate on his so called predictions, thought He’d at least set a date of his departure with GT by now with all the changes going on for that site. A similar departure to what Marcus Beer and Adam Sessler did as they found themselves running out of material or provided new avenues for themselves before the new year.

    • superkarma

      It really is ridiculous why the media even still pays attention to him. At this point, I think he’s just trolling the media. Surely he can’t honestly believe his laughably outlandish predictions. I haven’t even bothered to read what his E3 predictions are for this year, but I’m sure it’s laughable like all of his past predictions.

  • Jarbloko

    I hope the best for both

  • metalman5150

    Phil always plays his cards right; singing praises instead of screaming insecurities. I think MS should have elevated Phil, much long ago.

  • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

    “Ahh that @michaelpachter guy, he’s a friend. I’ll see him after our briefing, we’ll see if our show matches his predictions.”-Phil Spencer

    Can’t wait to see how this turns out. LOL I like his response.

  • Dr. Manhattan

    Philly Phil is right, we shall have an epic E3. I’m still wondering what MS can pull out of the bag, they need some good stuff to keep up and competition is good for gaming so they need to keep things going on the right track.

  • MTM2

    Guys, it’s okay to like Phil Spencer but don’t act like he’s the new ‘god’ of xbox, he was a big part of the big fiasco last year and thought gamers would be pleased with a $499 price tag – I don’t see how Mattrick has been slaughtered yet Phil Spencer is cleaned of his mistakes and idolised.

    • Failz

      Most of the PS team today are the same guys that did the awful PS3 launch. Work that one out.

      • Sucka Free

        Looks like they learned from their mistakes. You work that one out.

      • superkarma

        Yeah…what’s your point? They learned from their mistakes…something Microsoft clearly didn’t take notes on. Meanwhile, everyone involved in the X1′s reveal has been fired. In 1 year, 5 or 6 Microsoft executives were forced out. Work that one out.

        • JustGaming

          She/He can’t even fathom it.

          • superkarma

            Coming from him, I wouldn’t expect him to. I think I’d even go as far to say he’s worse than Vious…and that says a lot.

          • JustGaming

            It’s funny, because I truly do believe that SONY is trying to be 100% transparent this time around. For the record, and coming from someone who is a Nintendo fan at heart, XBone’s reveal was waaaaaay more f***ed up than PS3. I don’t remember anyone trying to force anything down everyone’s throats then being butt-hurt by the backlash…..

          • Failz

            Here’s something for you to watch. Might refresh your memory.

          • Sucka Free

            You really love the golden oldies don’t you, troll

          • superkarma

            It’s the only argument he has to fall back on. That and PC’s. When in doubt, fall back to PC’s and call everyone else “console peasants”.

          • Failz

            You want to know why Sony as a whole company are losing billions? Because the smart buyers no better. LOL keep buying there products.

          • superkarma

            Ahh yes, then you have the money argument. I almost forgot about that one. Yeah, I can see how all of Microsoft’s money is helping them sell X1′s.

          • Failz

            Money proves stability with the industry. Without it the world stops. MS can support us with games for our entire lifetime. Unlike Sony. Guess Apple will be taking over the PS brand soon.

          • superkarma

            Again, I can definitely see how all of Microsoft’s money is helping to move X1 units.

          • Failz

            Funny that, how come I see more games for X1 then PS4? You see your judgment is blinded by the hardware which the PS4 is only selling off Hype and its in 72 countries.

          • superkarma

            More games? PS4 has more games than the X1. That’s a simple proven fact. Whether or not you like those said games and consider them “better” is completely subjective. But purely on a number basis, PS4 has more games.

            *waits for the indie reply*

          • Failz

            LOL yeah your right sorry I forgot to include the indie department and and a bunch old PC games. Nice buy.

          • superkarma

            So you admit…the PS4 has more games? Because last time I checked, indies and PC games were still games.

          • Failz

            Yeah PS4 has more games. X1 has more AAAs.

          • superkarma

            But you just said X1 has more games than PS4. It’s interesting how you quickly flip-flopped.

          • Failz

            truth hurts doesn’t it.

          • superkarma

            So now X1 having more games is the truth? Which one is it? Make up your mind, troll.

          • Failz

            Life is hard for you isn’t it? I can understand your frustration for not understand. It explains why you bend over for Sony and why your on a MS article.

          • Jecht_Sin

            Prove it…

          • GodGamerDerp

            PS4 has more games than Xbox One, fact.

            Xbox will hardly sell anything in smaller “tier 2″ markets already dominated by PS3 and PS4. The global gap is growing wider, Xbox will never surpass PS4 in global sales.

            The 13 countries Xbox One launched in already account for ~90% of 360′s sales. Remaining countries will be 10% at best, but probably less since it’s launching late, more expensive, and less global appeal than the MURICA’ NFL TV box. I estimate the % of sales from non-launch countries around 5-6% at best.

            PS4′s stronger hardware is a major factor in why it has a ~3.5 million sales lead, and it will continue to dominate multiplatform sales. Multiplatform games are now more important than exclusives.

            The PS4 version of Watch Dogs accounted for 49 per cent of first week sales, followed by the Xbox One edition (27%), the Xbox 360 version (13%) and the PS3 edition (9%).

            PS4 version of Watch Dogs outsold Xbox One by 2:1 and “gamers don’t care that PS4 is more powerful”? You’re arguing against reality and trying to downplay PS4′s hardware power, and losing. It seems most people are ignoring attempts to downplay PS4′s stronger hardware and buying PS4s anyway.

            PS4 has the lead on the two biggest multiplatform games of the year, Watch Dogs and Destiny. Watch PS4 dominate Xbox yet again during Destiny month. Every AAA console multiplat that runs better on PS4 is another reason to buy one.

            You can stay in denial, I’ll be over here in reality where PS4 continues outselling Xbox.

            Oh and clench your cheeks for May NPDs, it’s gonna be ugly.

          • Failz

            I stopped reading at PS4.

          • GodGamerDerp

            Worthless, hateful, malicious troll posts.

            Because name calling on the internet is tough. Don’t try too hard.

          • Jecht_Sin

            Are you really upvoting all your own posts? Lame.

            PS: In what parallel Universe the Xbone has more games?

          • superkarma

            He does that all the time. Like I said, he’s worse than Vious.

          • Jecht_Sin

            Bah.. not worth wasting time.

          • Failz

            So what brings a Sony fanbabie to a MS article?

          • Jecht_Sin

            First who who said this is an MS article.. It was in the PS4 section and it talks about Sony as well. In case you didn’t notice when you judge someone you are talking about that person..

            Second I saw your crappy attempt at trolling in the top posts. When i read crap like “the xbone has more games” it triggers my anti-troll OCD. I just counted the games for the last 90 days in Metacritic a couple of days ago. It was 30 games for the PS4, 14 for the Xbone. The PS4 had more games in green (thus good) than the Xbone all together. Here, have a biscuit.

          • Failz

            Are you hear to try to put down a corporation with your baby attempts of name calling?

          • Jecht_Sin

            Don’t derail. I gave you numbers, you give just your delusions.

            regarding the name calling.. You are a troll, you even use a troll avatar. Unless you meant my use of “Xbone”, But MS gave up and said that it is allowed. Thus shut it.

          • Failz

            Lol those numbers are for those who dont understand what Indie or old PC games are. You see if I wanted to play old PC games or Indies ill be buying them on my PC. Good try though.

          • GodGamerDerp

            It would have to be the microsoft shills that can’t help but start talking about PS4 and Sony. And this article is partially about Spencer mentioning Sony.

          • Sucka Free

            Not really, MS makes its money off of Windows and Office. Xbox is a money pit, always has been. and that money can disappear very quickly with a few bad decisions, just ask IBM

          • GodGamerDerp

            Xbox does not have access to all of MS’s money, they’re given a budget by shareholders and expected to turn a profit. MS shareholders aren’t going to throw endless billions into the Xbox brand that shows little or no sign of turning a profit.

            OG Xbox lost billions, 360 made some profit but not nearly enough to cover the OG Xbox loss. Xbox One looks like an even bigger loss. Why do you think shareholders keep demanding Xbox be sold off, and execs keep mentioning selling Xbox? It’s a net loss that has lost Microsoft billions of dollars and not likely to turn a net profit anytime soon if ever.

          • Failz

            MS will support and can afford to support Xbox. Sony cant which explains a lot of departures at there inner studios. You will understand when your older.

        • Failz

          Phil is still there and he has learnt from the mistakes. Your point is nonsense. Don’t go around thinking only Sony can learn from there mistakes. Sony PS3 team lied though there teeth trying to sell the PS3, and they are still there selling the PS4. Good Luck.

          • superkarma

            Has he? I like Phil, but even I know he’s not the savior you guys make him out to be. Back in April, he said Games with Gold was “fundamentally different” than PS+, because you got to keep your games forever…1 month later…lol jk, we’re making it the exact same subscription model as PS+.

            I’m not thinking only Sony can learn from their mistakes. It was proven last year that they did, while Microsoft clearly did not. Compare the X1 when it was first revealed to what it is now…two completely different products with completely different people behind them. That right there shows Microsoft learned from their mistakes. The problem is, they simply didn’t learn from Sony’s mistakes 8 years prior.

          • Failz

            Keep telling yourself that. Just remember the guys who represent the PS4 are the same liars with the PS3. They will sell though lies.
            Remember Killzone MP 1080p? That’s what you get when you follow liars. Once a liar always a liar.
            Phil is good, his nothing great but his fresh air at Xbox now that his in control.
            Also note if you want to be a console peasant remember these corps want your money and they will do whatever it takes (lies) at E3 for you to open up your wallet. That’s why PC gaming is the way to go. No Subs, No restrictions, no policies. Just games.

          • Sucka Free

            Remember this?

          • Failz

            Remember Cell?

          • superkarma

            Remember when the X1 was built around the Kinect and it would never be sold without one? Remember when the X1 was built around the DRM and you couldn’t just flip the switch to reverse it? Remember when specs didn’t matter? Remember when some genius said if you don’t have an internet connection, get a 360? Remember when they said Games with Gold was different than PS+? Yeah, I remember all those times…apparently, you don’t.

            Phil is good and is obviously a great addition to Microsoft and the Xbox brand. I’ve already said that I like him and he’s exactly what Xbox needs. But he’s no savior that you fanboys want us to believe. I just gave you an example of him flat out lying. I’m sure that’ll happen in the future as well. After all, like you said, once a liar, always a liar.

          • Failz

            So where did they lie?

          • superkarma

            X1 would never be sold without Kinect — lie
            DRM can’t reversed like the flip of a switch — lie
            Specs don’t matter — lie
            Games with Gold is different than PS+ — lie
            Don’t have internet? Get a 360 — Just laughably bad marketing for your new product

          • Failz

            Kinect who the hell cares.
            DRM had to be patched it. LOL not exactly a flip of a switch keep trying.
            Specs don’t matter ( did you forget the 360?)
            Whats the 360 got to do with the X1? lol your a joke.
            You sir are what I call a blind fanbabie.

          • superkarma

            So, in other words, you’re just going to dismiss those blatant lies simply because they don’t fit your argument? Interesting.

          • Failz

            Lol you clearly don’t know what a lie is. You just like to label changes as lies. That’s cool. I would have hated to see your face at the PS3 launch lol

          • superkarma

            You keep bringing up the PS3 launch as if it’s helping your laughable argument. This isn’t 2006. Quit living in the past, troll. Lets talk about that X1 launch. Something you seem to be avoiding. Shocking.

          • Failz

            I am talking about the liars at the companies. Sony has been known to lie though there teeth. And the PS3 is a prime example. X1 was exactly what MS claimed it to be. Only PS sour fans think different.

          • superkarma

            And what exactly did Microsoft claim the X1 to be?

          • GodGamerDerp

            MS is doing it this gen, not Sony.

          • Sucka Free

            You are either trolling or stupid, no point in trying to reason with you

            *cough* Killzone MP 1080p *cough*

          • Jecht_Sin

            It is 1080p in both SP and MP. Rendered on SP, projected on MP. For a native resolution of 1960×1080. Never upscaled like the large majority of Xbone games.

            Here, have another biscuit.

          • Sucka Free

            Not interesting at all, typical

          • Vious

            You really shouldn’t take people’s words out of context.
            He said they were different in the way they operate which is why they couldn’t really do up to date games and he look into ps+ implementation.
            Then guess what happened? He looked into it and changed it so Xbox users could play some up to date games on subscription instead of getting them free.
            Next time don’t take people’s words out of context.

          • superkarma

            No, he actually didn’t. He said it was fundamentally different than other programs out there (meaning PS+, obviously). The only difference between the two were that with Games with Gold, you kept your games…with PS+ you didn’t. He ALSO said that they would look into getting up to date games, but that was completely separate from his “fundamentally different” talking point.

            I know you would like to spin that to mean something different and somehow say he didn’t flat out lie, but that’s exactly what he said and meant. Nothing was out of context. Quit looking for justifications where there are none.

          • superkarma

            Just to humor you, here’s the exact quote:

            “One of our issues with Games with Gold – not ‘issues,’ but differences between the other system we get compared to, is the fact that with Games with Gold, you get to keep that game, regardless of whether you continue to subscribe…And the business around Games with Gold, for us, is just fundamentally different from some of the other programs that are out there, which does put a different financial picture on a – you’re gonna go buy a game that’s brand new, the cost of putting that in, just to be kind of blunt about it”

            There you have it. Nothing out of context. Straight from Phil’s mouth. He then went on to say the talking point about more up-to-date games:

            “That said, I have been sitting down, monthly now, with that team – some of the earlier months were already programmed – and playing a more active role in picking franchises that show up in Games with Gold, and I think you’ll see at least something that feels, at least, more true to what I think Games with Gold should look like with the constraints that are there.”

            http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/132787-Xboxs-Phil-Spencer-Games-With-Gold-Different-Than-PS

            I’m sure you’ll still find a way to somehow spin this, though. Even when the facts and quotes are right in front of you, you’ll still refuse to accept them for what they are.

        They can’t relive another unofficial SCEA corporate Mascot like Don Mattrick that must of been a nightmare to be honest. Y’know with all the stuff of April of last year, “CrossBoned”,”#DealWithit”,”DRM”, “Always Online”, “why not buy a 360″ those rotations to correct any wrong came to a full stop when they started imitating PSN recently, which is likable I might add and good for Us gamers, but I can definitely see a change in pPSN/XBL or nnet Subscription for the better and hopefully not worse .

  • jacksjus

    Why is he even speaking on Sony? He needs to focus 100% on how he intends to pull the XOne out of the hole that it’s in. End of discussion.

    • cozomel

      Just shows how worried they are of Sony, its probably all thats on their mind. I mean just look at all their moves lately, all copying Sony.

    • DLConspiracy//

      Same reason Sony speaks jabs at Xbox I guess. Some just do it different.

  • cozomel

    “and it’s definitely nice to see him heading into E3 with this kind of
    sportsmanship. Wouldn’t it be nice if the fans were able to imitate it”

    Thats only cuz he has to say that, that’s whats considered “professional”. But behind closed doors, they are no different from us. Most of these guys on here are grown men and look how they act.

    • DLConspiracy//

      Um.. To be fair guy. He didn’t have to say anything at all. MS has yet to make viral memes at Sony’s expense on anything. No “how to share games” videos, no blank sheet of paper parity memes to go viral. So, I would say that is sportsman like. You don’t honestly think Sony isn’t a corporation behind the nice polished friendly “professional” face online do you?

      Let’s just enjoy games and stop twisting everything like a fanboy.

      • Sucka Free
        • DLConspiracy//

          That’s a bit different. The future is digital on all platforms. Soon we will have 4k if that ever takes off. Xbox division was digital and has been. Not really sure what that has to do with making jokes.

          • Sucka Free

            It’s not different, especially like the part where he says:


            “We believe that we shouldn’t force consumers to pay for things they don’t want.”

            They would never do that…

            and


            “Let’s say right now we’re not sure if it’s the next UMD or the next DVD,” added Greenberg, suggesting “it got Blu-rayed” will be the expression for future products in this perceived grey area.”

            Not snarky at all…

          • DLConspiracy//

            Is that Phil Spencer head of Xbox? How about Mark cerny putting down clouds ideas in an interview. My point was both are PR BS. Plus pretty sure Xbox has one of the largest download/install bases out.

          • Sucka Free

            and my point is that neither of these companies are above this kind of thing. You act like MS and Phil Spencer are the white knights of console gaming but the only reason that they are playing it that way is because they don’t dare say anything for fear of eating their words a few months later when they have to adopt those same policies.
            If they were in the lead, they would be every bit as smug about it.

          • DLConspiracy//

            PR is Public Relations. Some handle it professionally and some put up meme’s and viral videos to take a jab at their competition. Yes they are both corporations. Yes, They both don’t give two craps about us past our wallets. Personally I just don’t see as many jabs coming from MS. Clear observation.

          • Sucka Free

            Like I said, they can’t take any jabs, they are in 2nd place right now, gloating right goes to the leader. And as I said before, anything they may say about Sony, they might have to go back and emulate later.

          • DLConspiracy//

            There is always a scapegoat for this conversation it seems. So acting professional was only because they are “in 2nd place right now”. So when Sony tried to take a jab with this video.

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xOwA46785pk

            They were doing it to be sportsman-like? It’s OK to gloat when you are in the lead, right? It’s OK to assume that would have done the same if they were in 1st place, right? That video was to try and discredit another businesses ideas for a digital future. An idea that we will see in the future and is ahead of it’s time. BEFORE they released. Especially since Sony doesn’t represent the interest of the idea that MS came up with or borrowed from Steam..

            I think being professional no matter what type of smoke is always best in business. It says we are confident with our product and we stand behind our ideas. I own a PS4 and I thought that was childish and a misrepresentation of another companies ideas. They did that to sell PS4′s. When they didn’t even need to.

          • Sucka Free

            I already know about that vid, I assumed that was what you were talking about from the beginning. That is just one of the ways that PR entities make their products seem more appealing than their competition. And yes, if MS was in the lead and Sony had dropped the ball as badly as they did last year, they would have been just as smug about it.

          • superkarma

            Just figured I’d chime in for a quick second…

            They’re in 3rd place, not 2nd. Last I checked, Wii U sales were beating X1 by nearly 2 million. With Mario Kart 8 just coming out, I think it’s safe to say that gap is about the same, if not bigger. :)

          • DLConspiracy//

            That’s not true. Wii U sales 7 months after launch will reveal that. I like the Wii u btw. Waiting to buy one.

          • superkarma

            I’m not talking about 7 months after launch. I’m talking overall, which it very much is true.

            Please don’t pull the comparisons between the same time frame as your argument. PS4 had absolutely no problem outselling the Wii U (by about 1-2 million) in those 7 months. I would think the X1 wouldn’t have any problem beating a console that’s been on the market for nearly 2 years, but I guess it does.

          • DLConspiracy//

            If that’s what it’s all about to you. Sure. I enjoy my Xbox One. Everyone else makes it their life goal to put it down. I enjoy my PS4 too and you don’t see me putting the system down. I just think people over look the PS4 weaknesses. That’s it. I don’t care who sells more. I just enjoy what I like to play.

          • superkarma

            I’m not putting it down. I have nothing against the X1. I very much dislike Microsoft as a company, but don’t have anything against the X1. If the majority of my buddies had one instead of a PS4, I would get it. I go with whatever consoles my buddies get. At the beginning of last gen, I got the 360 and had that as my main console for a few years. Slowly my friends started moving over the the PS3, so I made the switch as well.

            I’m just simply saying from an overall sales standpoint, the X1 is struggling and is currently behind the Wii U. We know that won’t last for long, though. Obviously the X1 won’t see all the troubles the Wii U did. As you said, the PS4 does have its weaknesses, as does the X1. Nothing is perfect and there is always room for improvement.

          • DLConspiracy//

            Different strokes sort of thing. I agree. Honestly. I don’t like when people put down PS4, but it feels like it happens far less than my friends who own a Xbox One. I think a lot of the this flame war is because of actions like the Viral Videos and Memes that corporations shouldn’t play into. It shows less class and it also tries to pit the consumer against each other to help that corporation succeed financially. So it seems anyway.

            I enjoy both for different reasons. Xbox for Exclusives/Online infrastructure. PS4 Better graphics/Exclusives/Single Player games. Wii U – exclusives and just plain fun games. PC for all of the above with a graphical edge over the rest and no restrictions on apps or websites. Online can be up in the air on PC though. Sometimes I prefer playing on Xbox One for MP more than PC. Especially since they are offering up servers.

            I don’t mind if people don’t want one or the other. People have preferences but some of these idiots put peoples choices down without even giving those people the benefit of the doubt. They are just “stupid” “Mindless” or whatever name they want to come up with and I think that is a huge problem online. It’s easy to act that way behind a screen.

          • Sucka Free


            I’m not putting it down. I have nothing against the X1. I very much dislike Microsoft as a company, but don’t have anything against the X1.

            You just nailed it for me too. I really don’t have anything against the Xbox, other than that I feel it is just one more market that Microsoft is trying to buy.

          • DLConspiracy//

            I have had plenty of great experiences on Xbox with friends and regardless of which corporation (all corps suck) I use them to enjoy times with the friends I have made over the course of 8 years. I have been unable to have the same experience on PS yet. I did when online MP wasn’t a thing really. Now, I really enjoy MP.

          • Sucka Free

            Well, of course. You have your friends, your backlog and your achievements that define your experience. I have the same thing on PSN. But that was not what I was saying. MS is a very aggressive company. They have their cash cow, Windows which still makes them loads and loads of money but they aren’t happy with that, they seem to think that they should own everything that we do on a computer or digital media device. And they don’t play well with others. Gaming is just their latest conquest. I am resistant to allowing them that much access to my life. No one company should have complete control and as a former IT pro, I’ve already seen how they behave when they have a monopoly

          • DLConspiracy//

            I don’t agree with all of MS. That’s for sure. On a gaming level though. I do enjoy what they offer for the most part. Not a fan of Windows 8 and will fight that as long as humanly possible… Which sucks to say. I don’t agree with all of Sony either though, even though I use their music software to make a living on.

          • Sucka Free

            Well, yeah. Right now the Wii U got a shot in the arm with Mario Kart, but I was talking overall, I still think the XB1 is in a better place than the Wii U. Time will tell though

          • superkarma

            Yeah, it definitely is in a better place than the Wii U. There’s no denying that. I was just talking strictly sales numbers since launch for each console. We all know the X1 will obviously trump the Wii U in a matter of time, but currently…not so much.

          • Sucka Free

            I still hope that something amazing happens with the Wii U, I would go absolutely apesh*t if Nintendo has a surprise conference at E3 and announced a new Metroid, Zelda, Smash Bros, Pokemon, etc and just pulled a complete upset

          • superkarma

            I don’t know, man…the Wii U is in some rough times, for sure. For whatever reason, Nintendo seems to hate marketing. If they just spent some of their many resources on marketing the Wii U and its games, I really think that would help turn things around. It reminds me of how bad Sony was with marketing the PS3.

          • Sucka Free

            I didn’t say I expected it to happen, but I wouldn’t completely rule it out either. Yeah, Sony was bad about the PS3, PSP, and Vita. I sometimes wonder if MS has some sort of home court advantage with the media

      • cozomel

        Twisting everything like a fanboy? Wow are you naive and gullible. I state a fact and you go and get all defensive about it. You really think Phil Spencer isnt saying these things for PR reasons? if not then you’re naive.

        Now lets just enjoy games and stop twisting everything like a fanboy.

    • jacksjus

      I’ll give you that one 100%. Most of the adults on here acts a fool with only $400-$500 vested. Spencer’s has million$, a career, and a reputation vested. Damn right he has something negative to say when the mics are off. And I don’t blame him.

  • Trim Dose

    Not bad Phil not bad, starting to see he will bring good competition. It looks like is really a humble guy and that’s not a bad thing on my book.

  • awang0718

    Good sportmanship. That is alwasy nice.
    This directly contradicts the days when Jack Tretton from Sony would call the Nintendo DS a “babysitting” tool.

  • Michel Simmons

    The PS4 is out in many more countries people, wait for Microsoft to fully launch and present their future lineup of games and exclusives. All three game companies need to prosper and very well could, just look at last gen.

  • Shadow Rebirth

    even though i never own xbox, but because of xbox that playstation it is today. i respect Phil. although he just became a xbox president, he already change xbox to better. and it will indirectly make sony change playstation to better. i hope he does well in coming E3 unlike last year.
