Phil Spencer Notes That Xbox Scorpio Will Have A “Diverse Lineup” Of Games
(Last Updated On: April 13, 2017)

You’ve heard the words, I’ve heard heard the words, we’ve all heard these words: “I’m not going to buy the Xbox Scorpio, because it has no exclusives”. Well, it seems that those words have been typed across the Interwebs so much that Phil Spencer had something to say about the ongoing and popular opinion.

With E3 2017 coming up, a lot of people have been saying that the event should be used to show off the Xbox Scorpio’s exclusives and games so that it will drive units. In addition, there’s been talk around various forum boards that the upcoming Xbox console will be shown off with the same specs revealed not too long ago, but reiterated yet again at the event. People are also saying that the few games shown at the event will just be CGI trailers with no real gameplay footage.

Now the above is all just what a lot of people are saying and does not come in as fact. And because the aforesaid has been repeated so, Phil Spencer recently had this to say…

“Ultimately, we know you care most about great games, whether they be exclusive, multiplatform, independent or AAA. We are proud of the diverse lineup of games coming this year that will only be playable on Xbox One and will play better on Project Scorpio. We designed Project Scorpio to be the best console to play the blockbuster multiplatform games from our publishing partners, made it easy for recently released titles to upgrade to true 4K and for beloved, backward compatible titles to play better than ever before.”

The above quote by Spencer comes in from publication site GameRant, who noted that the letter was released in tandem with invites going out to press for the Microsoft’s Xbox E3 event this year (invite letter pictured below).

Microsoft has yet to reveal or discuss the console’s price, release date and game/title line-up. Nevertheless, said things are rumored to be unveiled when E3 2017 rolls around.

To be honest I’m not all that excited for the upcoming E3 event, however that could change soon depending on what’s revealed. With that said, are you excited for E3 2017 and the reveal of the Xbox Scorpio?

    Why get an Xbox if most of its “exclusives” play better on PC?

    That quote still didn’t answered the frigging question.

  • SevTheBear

    MS needs a BIG aces in their sleves. The only things so far that have got my attention is the BWC and refund service they just announced. Yet that is not enough for me to get one

  • Disqusted

    Sounds like fail.

  • Gozu Tennoh

    I wonder if they called it scorpio because scorpions wander around baron, featureless wastelands similar to the xbone.

  • Ahegao Connoisseur

    I feel like he always says that.


    Whenever someone uses “diverse” to describe something, I cringe inwardly now. Social Justice has pretty much tainted that word for me. I know Phil doesn’t mean anything by it, but fuck, man. I just can’t help it.

    • EroBotan

      same here XD

    • You’re not alone.

      I always catch myself now when describing technology as “progressive”. Even using it literally makes my soul ache because I know when reading over that line it still feels like it has some relation to the SJW’s “progressive stack” or whatever.

      “Diverse” is the same way… especially when it comes to describing things about a game because when the word pops up the first thing that now comes to mind is a trans-black Asian-lesbian who is disabled but identifies as an autistic-dragonkin.

    • Disqusted

      I wouldn’t be so sure he doesn’t mean anything by it.

      • I know Spencer cucked to Matt Hickey (of all people) and apologized to the rapist about the gogo dancers, but I always took Spencer for a PR kiss-up. I didn’t think he actually bought into the whole diversity spiel. But then again, maybe I’m wrong about him.

        • MONAD

          Honestly, that did kind of piss me off when he did that, but I can at least understand why he did it. I can’t help but wonder how many tech folks really are secretly afraid of the Social Justice screeching minority. Considering the fact that one fucking slip up could cost ANYONE their jobs. I wish folks would start standing up to these retards and realize that they don’t speak for the entire “community” (fuck, I HATE that word now).

      • MONAD

        I dunno. Phil’s a pretty swell guy from what I’ve seen of him. Doesn’t seem to have drunk the social justice kool-aid yet. As far as I can tell, it could just me my inward cringe whenever “diverse” is used.

    • Phasmatis75

      Glad I’m not the only one who cringes at that word now.
