According to all the new console hype, WE (you, me, them, they!) are the future of gaming! It’s a nice sentiment, but as I expounded upon it in the recent Virtual Bastion post, I wondered if that was really the case.
I couldn’t help but chuckle a little bit after reading Phil Spencer’s recent and well-meaning Xbox Wire post, “You Are the Future of Gaming.” Microsoft wants to the Xbox Series X to do well, obviously, and Mr. Spencer is an awesome salesman. The post thoughtfully enforces Xbox’s current mantra of inclusion and access — how gaming of the future will reflect and consider all of us in some way, and how the XSX will be the perfect means to that end.
Mind you, the PS5 will be the other perfect means to that same end, but I digress.
