First party games "critical" for Scorpio launch, says Xbox boss

Phil Spencer assures fans that Microsoft is on the ball with Scorpio's launch line-up.


Over on Twitter, head of Xbox, Phil Spencer has been answering fans' questions about the new console, and the Scorpio is going to be all about first party games.

When asked if the console would have any games at launch, Spencer tweeted that having first party games for Scorpio at launch is "critical."

He echoed the statement in an earlier tweet, where he said that they were "very focused on [first party] games. I'll be careful about when we announce things but I know strong [first party games are] critical."

How intriguing. We'll no doubt find out more when he spills the beans at E3 later this year.

Microsoft's press conference will take place at the Galen Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, June 11. It'll kick off at 2pm PDT/5pm EDT/11pm UK.

There's also going to be a Fan Fest to look out for when they announce more details, so keep your ear to the ground.
