Despite the fact it’s been only a few months since its debut, Microsoft Studios head Phil Spencer headed to Twitter yesterday to respond to a few fan questions. When asked if Xbox One would be the last Microsoft console ‘as we know it’, Spencer says “I don’t. I think local compute will be important for a long time.”
So rest easy, hardware fans, as it seems Microsoft still plans to release actual local hardware for their next console generation.
Many rumours came out about what the next-gen consoles will look like, or if there will even be a box. Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada spoke last year about how the PlayStation 5 may end up being just a controller and service. But for now, we have our Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Stay tuned to CGM for more details on what the future of gaming holds.
