Microsoft’s head of the Xbox division Phil Spencer is always quite receptive of the ideas he hears from the community, and today he provided a few interesting comments on Twitter.

To the suggestion of a crossover between the Halo and the Gears of War franchise, he definitely gave a more in-depth answer than many would expect:

To the request for the ability to pair Xbox One, Xbox 360 and a Windows 10 PC he also gave a rather positive response:

Interestingly, he then mentioned that we can expect more special promos for Xbox One from retailers through the Holidays.

Fnally, if you were expecting him to walk on stage carrying surprises at The Game Awards on December 5th, it may be time to curb that expectation:

It’ll be interesting to see if there will be any announcements from Microsoft at the show, or Spencer’s absence means that the house of Xbox will hold its news back from another occasion.

In the meanwhile, what would you think of a crossover between Halo and Gears of War within a different genre? Of course Spencer was far from confirming that something like that will ever happen, but it’s quite intriguing.
