He added, "some of them we'll get right and some of them we won't, but we're definitely not going to be meek: we're going to be bold in what we're gonna try to do".

If you had today's fibre to the home connection and yesterday's install size for many a AAA game, you'd have the latest title on your console before you could even finish making a sammich.

The idea is that first-party titles such as Halo Infinite will launch on all Xbox models, but the Xbox Series X version will have the highest fidelity.

"We're going to do a much better job with this next, upcoming launch of not waiting ten months to launch in Japan like we did last time".

In a recent interview with Gamertag Radio, Phil Spencer went into a bit more detail about how Microsoft came to this decision, saying Microsoft is "putting the player at the center and not putting the device at the center" of its vision of the future. "There is no slide deck anywhere that says we want to turn everyone into a subscriber, and no one should buy".

However, with their game streaming service, new consoles, software, and the PC market, Microsoft are in a strong position no matter what happens next generation.
