Phil Spencer Doesn’t Know Whether Xbox One Will Overtake PS4 in this Generation

By   /   1 year ago

Microsoft’s Phil Spencer has admitted the fact that Playstation 4 has a huge lead over Xbox One.

Speaking about the current generation during a panel at the 2015 GeekWire Summit; Spencer admitted to the fact that Playstation 4 has a huge lead over Xbox One and also said that he doesn’t know whether Xbox One will be able to overtake Playstation 4 in this generation:

You know, I don’t know. You know, the length of the generation… They [Sony] have a huge lead and they have a good product. I love the content, the games line-up that we have.

Continuing, he also admitted that he didn’t realise that the impact the launch would have on the team in Redmond:

One thing that probably I didn’t realise as much as I should have when I started in this role was the impact that the launch had on our team here in Redmond, the Xbox team.

Because it’s easy to read the blogs and the sites and my Twitter feed and see what the customers think of our brand and our product, but the team in Redmond took as much of a hit as the external community did around the launch. And I sit back and I think about an [organisation] of thousands of people, you’re down in the organisation and some words and some actions from executives kinda just trash all the work that you’ve done over the last three years, many weekends and nights, and you start to question why am I doing this? Why am I working so hard when a few crass comments can actually position our product more directly than any work that the team was doing?
