Console tribalism one of the worst things about our industry: Phil Spencer

Microsoft’s Head of Gaming, Phil Spencer, said console tribalism is one of the worst things about the gaming industry. He further went on to say that toxic brand loyalty is something that he hates and does not like that in order to achieve their goals, companies like Microsoft ’have to see others fail’. Spencer also said that this could be the only thing that could drive him out of the industry.

While crossplay is a brilliant idea, brand loyalty isn't a bad thing. It's a necessary part of the free market. The actual worst thing about the games industry is oooh let's see.....unacceptably buggy triple A games, loot boxes, EA, day one patches...what else?....Fallout 76, pay to win mechanics in full priced games and toxic corporatism infecting a once beloved artistic passion. That's the shit that needs to be fixed.

Alright, how about this... all the right leaning people play Xbox, and all the left leaning people play PlayStation? If we can’t co exist we might as well have fun doing it.

PC MASTER RACE! Consoles are for babies. What kind of m0r0n would pay every month to the equipment manufacturer just to use their games online? Run away from these wastes of cash as quickly as possible!

Yeah, you're the jerk who caused it, buddy. Allow games to run cross platform and you'll see less tribalism.

Microsoft has no right to talk. They've been refusing to make cross platform software for decades. They only dislike console tribalism because they are losing.
