Xbox boss Phil Spencer is a pretty open and understanding person. Every time he talks he usually leaves most interesting debates and statements. He recently opened up about the price hike on Xbox’s first-party games and admitted that they held out as long as they could. In addition, he also defined how the growth of PlayStation is based.
As reported by the VGC media, Phil Spencer has attended the 12th edition of the New York Game Awards, where he received an award for his career. After that, the head of Xbox gave a sincere and emotional speech appealing to the unity and responsibility of the developers, which is to “inspire and invite joy at a time when there is more despair in the world.”
“Halo, God of War, Vampire Survivors, Peppa Pig… Each one of them is designed to spread joy in the midst of our lives”, Phil Spencer
This is how the director points out: “Today, as creators, as leaders, as builders of the world, our greatest responsibility is to inspire and invite joy. Each one of the hundreds of titles that players have at their fingertips today and tomorrow is a calling card of joy,” reveals Spencer and later gives several examples.
“Halo, God of War, Vampire Survivors, Peppa Pig, big games, small games, mobile games or indie games. Each of them is designed to spread joy in the midst of our lives, to give us so much joy that even people want to talk about it. We, all of us who are here today, all of our teams around the world, we are all part of creating this echo effect of joy, “says the head of Xbox.
“Business leaders are called to have the courage to protect and nurture this collective joy. We are called to generate these experiences, create them and grow them,” Spencer continues. “To seek out and surround ourselves with a multitude of perspectives. To honor our differences through experiences already practice empathy by intentionally listening to others.
“We must move away from the divide between players and creators and instead grow closer to one another as we move forward and amplify the joy together. This is the echo effect of the joy of the game”, Phil Spencer concludes this brilliant speech.
