During AMD’s CES press conference, Xbox Division Head Phil Spencer joined the graphics giant’s CEO Lisa Su on stage to talk about the partnership between the two companies.
Spencer pledged his support for the collaboration between Microsoft and AMD for “future platforms,” also mentioning that he looks forward to showing them in the future.
“As a company, we look at the opportunity in gaming and one of the things I want to say is when we think who our partners are, we think about great companies that do great work, but also do it in the right way.
You’re somebody that I respected a ton in this industry and I’ve seen the way you’ve led AMD, and I think having a partner like AMD that works so collaboratively with us on our future technology, but also as a cultural level I think fits so well, it’s awesome to have you as a partner.”
“As we look forward to future platforms that we’re building and work that we’re doing, the partnership and the innovations that we’ve seen in the past have led to what we’ve been able to do today, I think they’re going to be critically important to our future endeavors.
I’m really looking forward to showing those to people more in the future.”
Spencer also explained that over the next decade investment needs to focus on three components: content, community, and cloud, and that’s exactly what Microsoft has been doing recently with the acquisition of new studios, its focus on the Xbox Live community, and the upcoming launch of Project xCloud.
Back in December, Spencer mentioned that 2019 is “Lined Up to Be Another Better Year.” He also talked further about the upcoming Next-Gen hardware.
