Phil Spencer Becomes Head of Xbox
Following recent departures, Phil Spencer has been made head of the Xbox brand.
“This past year has been a growth experience both for me and for the entire Xbox team. We’ve taken feedback, made our products better and renewed our focus on what is most important, our customer.
“Our mission is to build a world-class team, work hard to meet the high expectations of a passionate fan base, create the best games and entertainment and drive technical innovation. As we continue forward, this renewed focus and mission will be a foundational part of how I lead the Xbox program.
“You will hear much more as we head into E3, but we are at the beginning of an incredible new chapter for Xbox and I can’t wait for the days and years ahead. This is going to be fun.”
Out of all the Xbox “frontmen” (i.e. those numpties in suits who spoke bullshit most of last year), I have to say I actually quite like Mr Spencer. He has a strong background of actual gaming and has the potential to turn the companies’ poor image around.
