Microsoft Exec Talks PS4, Wii U, and “Unhealthy Dislike” Among Fanboys

Microsoft's Phil Spencer recently shared his thoughts on the current console war between PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Wii U. 

In an interview with Geoff Keighley at SXSW, Spencer discussed the problem with hardware fanboyism. "There seems to be this natural faction that gets created around what console you own, and then this… I would call it ‘unhealthy dislike’ for people who own the other console," he explained.

Spencer then went on to add:

I have ton of respect for people at Sony and the franchises they build. The same with Nintendo, or my friends at Valve… In the end what we all wanna do is to take this art form of playing games and experiencing the breaking down of the wall between the narrative and interaction...

I love the fans that we have, but being a fan of Xbox doesn’t mean you can’t be a fan of something else, or that you have to be an anti-fan of some other brand. I own a PlayStation 4. I play games on my PlayStation 4. I own and I play games on my Wii U. I learn a ton from what happens on those other platforms.

Can't we all just get along?
