    Yeah, I call complete bs. Should they ever get a large amount (majority) of marketshare with the Xbox brand, they’ll absolutely do that.

    Microsoft is gonna Microsoft. Just look how they abuse their Windows marketshare to try and shove Microsoft Edge down your throat. The latest trick I encountered at work was that Outlook now has its own setting for which browser to open links in, it doesn’t respect the OS default browser anymore by default.

      The problem with statements like these are even if Phil is telling the truth right now there’s no saying what will happen 7 years later.

      • Xbox could be losing much more badly than they are now and could try new ways of getting exclusives
      • shareholders could want more and more
      • Phil could be replaced by the next Don Mattrick

      Consumers don’t own games especially on consoles where they are too tightly tied up with the company who made the hardware. Don’t take this statement too seriously because you never know what will happen.

        But he’s not even telling the truth right now. All the FTC documents have shown everything he’s publicly said in the last 5 years has been nothing but lies.

        Of course they will claim stuff changes, but the internal documents show that it’s always been lies, always.
