Earlier today, at the Xbox E3 2016 Briefing, Head of Xbox Phil Spencer took the stage to share the vision for the future of Xbox. Spencer shared that the team sees a future full of choice, without being constrained by technical boundaries, devices people play on, or console generations.
With so many people playing games on more than one device, there’s a fundamental shift in the way the world thinks about gaming.
In a post penned by Spencer over at Xbox Wire, he shares some of Team Xbox’s core beliefs. From the post:
At Xbox, we believe you should have a diverse and expansive library of games. That’s why, in addition to the many exciting games we announced today for Xbox One and Windows 10, we unveiled the new Xbox Play Anywhere program that will enable you to buy a game once and play it on both the Xbox One and your Windows 10 PC. We believe in uniting gaming communities where you can play, compete and connect with friends, wherever they are. Today, we showed how Xbox Live is being made available for developers to use across Xbox, Windows 10, VR and mobile, as well as across other participating networks. We believe in Gaming for Everyone, and we feel strongly that all gamers deserve to be welcomed, respected and supported. With that as one of our driving forces, today we announced new Xbox Live features to help you build out your gaming network and play your way. We believe in hardware innovation without sacrificing compatibility. The first step on that journey of innovation was today’s announcement of the Xbox One S, the newest addition to the Xbox One family. We shared that our existing Xbox One games and accessories will continue to work with it.
Finally, Spencer introduced the next addition to the Xbox One family: Project Scorpio. Project Scorpio will be the first console with 6 teraflops of power, which will empower the world’s greatest game creators to fully embrace true 4K gaming without sacrificing quality, generate premier VR experiences, without sacrificing performance, and putting greater graphic fidelity in the hands of the world’s best game creators.
