Today, Xbox executive Phil Spencer posted a lengthy blog outing about his vision for the future of Xbox,media reported. Although this article contains many marketing terms and buzzwords, its core describes a user-centric approach to hardware and software development where user happiness and satisfaction are the primary content of the gaming experience.
Spencer begins the article by discussing Xbox’s desire to address harassment and hatred that exists throughout the community, and noting that the Xbox platform is designed for everyone’s enjoyment. So he hopes that this will eventually be achieved through the hard work of the Xbox security team, the nearly 300,000 diverse “ambassadors” and the development of new technologies designed to reduce hate speech and toxicity.
Spencer also devoted some time to the Xbox Series X. It refers to a wealth of information that is already known, such as host-built high frame rate support, backward compatibility, ray tracing, and reducing or eliminating load times. But he also mentioned some interesting information that hasn’t been made public before, such as that all first-party games released in the next few years will be available for current consoles and next-generation consoles. The company has no intention of forcing players to upgrade to Xbox Series X in order to play high-profile games such as Halo Infinite.
In addition, Spencer promises that players’ existing Xbox accessories — especially handles — will work properly on the Xbox Series X. That is, if you don’t want to buy, you don’t need to buy a new one.
It’s clear that Microsoft is taking a more consumer-friendly approach to promoting its Xbox Series X.
