Yesterday Xbox Live went down which locked out nearly all users immediately from some of the main function of the console like streaming or multiplayer all the while Microsoft seemed to be having trouble with its official support pages too.
Speaking at the Brazil Game Show with Gamespot, Phil Spencer confirmed they're talking with Sony all the time about cross-play; however, the Japanese company doesn't seem like it will concede to the idea.
However, while a lot of Xbox One's leading titles in the past have been exclusives strictly for a year or less - with Rise Of The Tomb Raider being the most prominent example - there are a few games that will never find themselves on the stacked plates of candies for PlayStation 4 owners. That reason is not going to go away. I don't think everybody is taking that same approach to the ecosystem.
Microsoft mentioned that they will have a collection that will be revealed later, although players should not expect as many backward compatible games of the Xbox 360. "They've been great supporters and we continue to collaborate with them", he said.
"The relationship with Nintendo on this front has been strong".
The Xbox One X has been described by Microsoft as the first "true 4K" console, with the company having spent the past 12 months putting all of its marketing weight on it and neglecting to release any major exclusives in the process. With Minecraft on PlayStation, we have to be one of the biggest games on their platform in terms of sales and gameplay. "Their number one form of entertainment, and we want to give them the very best experience". What are your thoughts?
