Phil Spencer: Game Attach Rate on Xbox One Is "Great;" Talks Third Party Marketing Deals

Phil Spencer talks about game attach rate on Xbox One, and wonders why gamers care about third party marketing deals.

Today Microsoft’s Xbox Division Hear Phil Spencer took to Twitter to respond to questions from fans about the game attach rate on Xbox One and third party deals.

First of all, he mentioned that the game attach rate is “great,” also reiterating that there is no problem at all with it.

Secondly, after mentioning once more that first party titles are critical to the future of the Xbox line up and for the launch of the new console code named Project Scorpio, Spencer explained that, while he appreciates partnering with third party publishers, he doesn’t understand why gamers care about which console manufacturer gets the third party marketing deal with a certain game.

As an additional small bonus, Spencer teased that one of his most anticipated Xbox 360 backward compatible games is coming in the next few weeks, even if he remained firm in not commenting on the much requested Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
