Xbox Honcho Wants No Man’s Sky and DayZ on Xbox One, Praises PS4 Exclusive Wild; Gears News in 2015

Following the showdown at Gamescom Microsoft’s Xbox Division Head Honcho Phil Spencer had a few comments to share on Twitter, especially on the games which for now have been announced just for PS4.

First of all, he had words of praise for the PS4 exclusive Wild by Michel Ancel:

You must have liked the Sony briefing, was a good show. “Wild” looked great, nice new announce.

He also mentioned that he had a chat with the creators of both No Man’s Sky and DayZ, and he’d want them on Xbox One:

Great games, I met with both creators this week at Gamescom and it would be great to bring them to XBOX.

Yet, he specifie that there’s nothing to announce yet on DayZ:

Nothing to talk about right now but we are fans of the franchise.

Talking about first party studios, he mentioned that there will be more to talk about for the new Gears of War next year:

@GearsViking doing good work with @blacktuskstudio, probably more to talk about in 2015.

It’s quite unlikely that we’ll see anything about it at Tokyo Game Show, even if Spencer mentioned that he’s now working on the plans for the event:

Not sure yet about TGS lineup. Working on the plans.

As an added bonus (and it0s a big bonus for me), he promised that a screenshot feature for the Xbox One is in the works, even if there’s no ETA for now:

Working on screenshots, lots of requests for this feature. We’ll get it done, just not locked on when.

Can’t say I’m not eager to be able to snap screenshots on my Xbox One. Hard to understand why the feature hasn’t been implemented to begin with, but at least it’s coming.
