According to his own statements, Microsoft’s Phil Spencer found nothing but praise for the Sony Interactive Entertainment PS5 online event. Despite everything, Spencer currently sees the Xbox Series X or his company itself at an advantage.
A few days ago, Sony Interactive Entertainment used a large-scale online event to give us a first look at the design of the PS5 as well as numerous games that will appear for the new console. According to his own information, Phil Spencer, head of Microsoft’s gaming division, found nothing but positive words about this presentation and congratulated Jim Ryan, president of Sony Interactive Entertainment, on the successful event.
For Microsoft itself, it was positive that the company now knew what it was ultimately dealing with, Spencer continued. “As a competitor, it’s great to have them out there now so we kind of know what the program is, we see the device, we see the games,” Spencer said during a recent GameLab event.
“Just being honest, I felt good after seeing their show. I think the hardware advantages that we have built are going to show up as we’re talking more about our games and frame rates and other things. I thought the games line-up that we’re going to have at launch I felt really good about, and we got more clarity on what they’re doing at their show which just helped us focus in on more of what we have, and I think that will be a strength for us at launch,” Spencer declared.
Regarding Microsoft’s online event in July, Spencer said: “So I thought they did a good job, I thought they do what they do very well and they did that, but when I think about the position that we’re in, with the games that we’re going to be able to show and how they’re going to show up, and the hardware advantage that we have, I think we’re in a very good position.”
Recall that Xbox Series X will be released just like the PS5 in this year’s Christmas season.
