Xbox Boss Phil Spencer Hasn't Beaten Cuphead, But He's Got a Reason

Phil Spencer Sony is Blocking Minecraft Cross Platform Play

We have less than a month to go before Microsoft releases its powerful Xbox One X console to retail.

Spencer backed his conclusion with a pretty convincing reasoning. I know the games that are coming for the original Xbox but I don't think we've announced them all. The console's increased horsepower and more functionalities will be capable enough to give players an enhanced gaming experience even if they don't have a 4K TV, the executive noted. However, while many have expressed that this lack of new software means that the Xbox brand has a lot riding on the Xbox One X's success, Microsoft acknowledges that they are appealing to a niche audience with the system.

On the topic of Cuphead, Spencer says it's selling "very well", although no exact numbers have been released.

All of these consoles are the regular white Xbox One S with a 500GB harddrive plus one controller. "It's like when we built the Xbox One Elite controller, we didn't try to say to everybody, 'If you need an extra controller, go buy the Elite controller.' We sold a ton of those controllers", Spencer said.

Such a setup of premium gaming was so far typical to the PCs, but now consoles are also joining in. The Xbox One X is all about delivering 4K experiences, and though it comes to market a year after Sony debuted its upgraded PlayStation 4 Pro, Microsoft's bragging point is that its console sports more powerful hardware capable of producing true (native) 4K gaming experiences, as opposed to upscaled ones.

Microsoft has announced several new XBox One S bundles that will bring stars to any gamer's eyes this holiday season. Since then there has been no update on the features.

We're close, we're really close. "I feel really good", he said. These are things that we'd love to see this generation, and Xbox boss Phil Spencer told GameStop that those types conversations are still ongoing between Xbox and PlayStation.

Spencer said he was confident that the feature would be available before the end of the year.

Crimson Skies will be among the first titles to hit OG Xbox backwards compatibility.
