Next Xbox Will Learn From Past Mistakes, Says Phil Spencer
The next generation of consoles have been confirmed and both PlayStation 5 and Xbox’s Project Scarlett is set to debut next year. With the DualShock 5 controller patent giving us a sneak peek at what possibly lies ahead and the games reportedly launching with the PS5, Sony is handing fans a lot of features and attractions to look forward too. Of course, so does Xbox and they plan to learn from past mistakes.
Seeing as the PS5 doesn’t pose a threat to Project Scarlett alongside the informative reveal earlier this year, the next Xbox generation seems to be shaping up to be solid gaming hardware. Despite Xbox One’s success since 2013, Xboss Phil Spencer admits to the console’s shortcomings. In an interview with The Verge, Spencer revealed that the team is going “all in” with Project Scarlett to pave the way for generations to come.
“We had the discussion years ago ‘do we want to go do another generation?’ Yes, and do we think there will be multiple generations ahead of us? I actually think there probably is,” Spencer explained. “So we’re going all in. We’re all-in on Project Scarlett and I want to compete, and I want to compete in the right ways which is why we’re focused on cross-play and backward compatibility.”
Without a shadow of a doubt, Microsoft’s goal with the next generation of Xbox is to be a smash hit with the community. In order to do so, however, the users have to like what they see and the price needs to be within reason.
“I would say a learning from the Xbox One generation is we will not be out of position on power or price,” Spencer acknowledged. “If you remember the beginning of this generation we were a hundred dollars more expensive and yes, we were less powerful. And we started Project Scarlett with this leadership team in place with a goal of having market success.”
Thankfully, Xbox understands the areas in need of improvements and they’re willing to own up to it so when the holidays come around next year, we’ll be happy to see what they bring to the table. Xbox has a solid fanbase and the best thing the team can do is give their all.
