Success Involves More Than Just Xbox One Sales To Microsoft's Phil Spencer
(GameSpot PC News)

How soon we see the next proper generation of consoles is anyone`s guess. Sony and Microsoft have modified their approach to console hardware to resemble something like the mobile phone market, first with the PS4 Pro last year and next month with the Xbox One X.

Below, you`ll find an edited transcript of our chat with Spencer.GameSpot: As I promised, my first question is about Cuphead. Have you beat it yet?Phil Spencer: I haven`t beaten retail.
