Xbox play anywhere takes very little time on the market officially, trying to connect in a more effective way the Xbox One and Windows 10. Phil Spencer has very confident that games are not only Microsoft, independent or supported Xbox adopt this program.
In an interview with PC Authority , Spencer reiterated that Microsoft wants to make first-party games come both Xbox and Windows, and feels that with time, more companies like Ubisoft, EA, Activision can come aboard this new program and debuted just over a month ago.
Spencer said the smaller developers, such as those forming part of the program ID @ Xbox, “understand that selling your game and get a lot of people” as possible is a “real benefit” and the reception from the community has been positive. Editors and larger, however, developers will take another approach to wait and see.
“I would say some of the largest third party publishers, want to see how this works for us,” Spencer said. “There is always a fear that you’re ‘giving away two games for the price of one, i think there are very few people who actually buy a game twice, once in PC and console once. ”
“Really what we are doing is just to allow the client can often play their games more often. In today ‘sworld, participation in the games is more participation in the games, [and] it is almost always a good thing, with a multiplayer and business models around those games … I think the adoption by publishers third happen over time. “
