It’s no secret that the Xbox One has performed abysmally in Japan – the launch was pretty embarrassing, with interest levels low and just a handful of consoles sold. A lot of commentators have put that down to various reasons: Mobile gaming is more popular, and Microsoft being a western company, unlike rival Sony have been cited for the poor release. Now Xbox chief, Phil Spencer has discussed why he thinks the console has failed to ignite the East. In a frank exchange, … Read More »

It’s starting to appear like Microsoft is confident with taking shots at Sony.  In a recent interview with Albert Penello, head of product and planning  for Xbox, he has made it very clear that they are focused on what developers want with 4K but the competition is not. “I think there are a lot of caveats they’re giving customers right now around 4K. They’re talking about checkerboard rendering and up-scaling and things like that. There are just a lot of asterisks in their marketing around 4K, which is interesting because when we thought about what spec we wanted for Scorpio, … Read More »
