Gamelab Live 2020 -tilaisuudessa ääneen pääsi Microsoftin Xbox-pomo Phil Spencer. Puheenaiheet käsittelivät päättyvää konsolisukupolvea, ja tulevaa polvea palveluineen (kuten Xbox Game Pass ja Project xCloud).
Spencer onnitteli Sonya heidän Playstation 5 -julkistuksestaan, mutta totesi myös Xbox Series X -konsolilla olevan etuja kilpailijaan verrattuna. Uuden konsolipolven alkaessa Microsoftin lähtöasetelmat ovat hyvät.
"Yeah I watched the show, I thought they did a good job. I sent Jim [Ryan] a note aftwerwads and congratulated him, I thought that, in this environment, trying to pull off a high production value event is just not easy, so I applaud the team at Sony for what they were able to do. As a competitor it's great to have them out there now, so we kind of know what the program is -we see the device, we see the games- just being honest I felt good after seen their show".
"I think the hardware advantages that we've built are going to show up as we're talking more about our games and framerates and other things. I thought that the games lineup that we're going to have at launch, I felt really good about. We've got more clarity on what they're doing obviously at their show, which just helped us focusing on more of what we have, and I think that'll be a strength for us at launch".
"They do what they do very well, but when I think about the position that we're in, with the games that we're going to be able to show and how they're going to show up, and the hardware advantage that we have, I think we're in a very good position. So I feel good about July and the gameplay we're going to be showing there".
Heinäkuussa on luvassa uusi tilaisuus, jossa näytetään tulevia Xbox Series X -pelejä. Uusi Halo on tietenkin se tilaisuuden isoin juttu.
