There is no difference in flag if the Xbox community is entire: word of Phil Spencer, who “adopts” Nintendo Switch and PS5 users

We struggle to find figures in the gaming industry more averse to the fans of the ever-jovial “console wars” Phil Spenceraccording to which the presence of Xbox content on PS5 and Nintendo Switch automatically makes everyone part of the same community. This consideration comes from an interview written by the Japanese periodical Famitsuin which he was asked about the jade giant’s big picture following the acquisition of Activisiontaking with him Blizzard (and the possible debut of World of Warcraft on consoles). Spencer therefore considers the two consoles “rivals”, together with the newcomers Steam Deck ed Asus ROG Ally, parts of a single, large community. “When everyone plays, everyone wins”, precisely.

Nobody excluded: in the Xbox panorama, PS5 and Nintendo Switch players are all the same, Phil Spencer guarantees

According to Spencer, players on different platforms are one with the Xbox community simply because of take advantage of titles developed and financed by Microsoft. This includes Redfall, Starfield, and by extension, even Activision properties like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 or the Crash Bandicoot saga. The former third-party publisher can consider its multiple IPs as part of the same emerald-hued umbrella. However, Spencer was quick to specify that Call of Duty, to the detriment of the acquisition, it won’t have anything exclusive to Xbox. Those who look at the merger with fatalism can rest easy, considering that nothing from the Activision portfolio will end up on Game Pass before next year.
