Microsoft's head of Xbox Phil Spencer is banking on immersion to make the Xbox Series X a must-buy for gamers, and he thinks the Xbox All Access cell phone-like payment plan will help them afford it.
In a Game Lab Live keynote today, Spencer answered a question from interviewer Seth Schiesel about what kinds of experiences he expected to highlight the power of the Xbox Series X.
"This is always a difficult question because I know people are looking for the one, two or three tech that only show up on a certain platform or is only made possible on a certain platform," Spencer said. "And I think it's just a matter of degrees. It has been for a while."
There were clearer differences to the sort of games that could be created by new hardware in previous generational shifts, Spencer said, pointing to the jump from 2D games to 3D games as an obvious difference for players.
