Xbox Exec Phil Spencer on Street Fighter V: Business Deals Happen

Microsoft gaming executive Phil Spencer took to Twitter to respond to an Xbox fan's question about Sony's console exclusivity of Street Fighter V. His response: Meh.

Responding to the information released at this weekend's PlayStation Experience, Spencer said that Microsoft can't win 'em all. He tweeted, “Business deals happen. We won't do all of them.”

Spencer added, “When we have a 1st party franchise in a genre I'd rather invest in ours,” referencing Xbox exclusive Killer Instinct. He further explained, in reference to cutting exclusive deals, such as Dead Rising 3, that in his opinion owning IPs Xbox gamers love was “critical.”

Sony announced console exclusivity of Street Fighter V at their event over the weekend, though the Capcom title will be released for PC as well.
