Xbox Chief On Controllers & Single Player

There has been much debate about the merits of both next-gen consoles that are still hard to find.

One thing that seems to be universally agreed upon is that the PlayStation 5’s DualSense controller is next-gen, in a way that the Xbox controller is not.

Combining a better form factor/weight with precise haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, and a combination of both adds immersion to in-game environments.

It’s quite impressive that Microsoft has noticed and is looking to implement the same technology in their controller.

Phil Spencer, Microsoft’s chief games officer, said that he believes Sony has done a good job with their controller. However, we looked at some of it and [think] there were things we should do.”

Spencer claims that Xbox does not have any plans to offer VR on their console, even though Sony is working on next-generation VR. In addition, Sony has not suggested copying Microsoft’s most popular features, such as Smart Delivery or Quick Resume.

These comments were made by Spencer, who The Guardian recently asked about the future single-player narrative adventure gaming (ala “Mass Effect”, “Red Dead Redemption,” and others) at Xbox.

While Sony embraces this model with franchises such as “Uncharted,” “The Last of Us,” and “Spider-Man,” Xbox has focused almost exclusively on cross-platform, connected games. These games include multiplayer shooters and racers such as “Halo” or “Forza,” but they are based on a conservative approach to not changing much and generating regular cash. This may change soon, though.

“I believe we are building more single-player narrative games now than ever before in the history of Xbox. As a result, platform owners, regardless of whether a subscription, a hardware device, or a store, are investing in new, more risky things because if it works, we get value from bringing players into our ecosystem.

Microsoft revealed at E3 plans for combining Game Pass and its streaming technology xCloud. This will allow users to play demos of titles before downloading them. In addition, Spencer believes this is an opportunity to offer a “Steam early access” service for Xbox Series S/X that allows players to contribute to the creation of games.
