Xbox boss Phil Spencer has complimented Sony, saying he believes the Japanese giant did a “good job” with its recent PlayStation 5 storefront, but believes Microsoft will be able to demonstrate the Xbox’s “hardware advantages” Series X with his speculated the July live stream. He added: “I think we are in a very good position.”
“Just being honest, I felt good after seeing his show,” said the talkative suit. “I think the hardware advantages we have built will show as we talk more about our games and frame rates and whatnot.” The executive refers to the fact that Microsoft’s next-generation console has more teraflops than the PS5, although Sony’s system has advantages in other areas, such as the speed of its SSD hard drive.
“I thought they did a good job,” Spencer continued, speaking as part of GameLab Live. “I thought they do what they do very well and they did that, but when I think about the position we are in, with the games we are going to be able to show and how they are going to appear” and the hardware advantage we have, I think we are in a very good position. “
Microsoft already had an opportunity to showcase the Xbox Series X, which fell like a lead balloon. However, Spencer has suggested that fans “will be really happy” with his next presentation, which will likely focus on exclusives like Halo Infinite. Sony is rumored to speak again in August, with this month’s reveal event touted as just the beginning of PlayStation’s communication plans.
