Who ‘won’ at E3? The gamers, says Phil Spencer, head of Xbox

E3 2014, held this week, was “incredibly special,” writes Phil Spencer, head of Xbox, in a blog post. “We saw amazing games from innovative creators, developed for Xbox, Sony and Nintendo. Some people have asked who ‘won’ this week and the answer is simple – the gamers. It’s wonderful to see our industry healthy and delivering what we all want – great games.”

With Xbox exclusives like “Halo: The Master Chief Collection,” “Sunset Overdrive,” “Forza Horizon 2,” “Fable Legends” and “Ori and the Blind Forest” on their way, “as well as the pipeline of creative independent titles coming through ID@Xbox and blockbusters,” including “Assassin’s Creed Unity,” “Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare,” “Destiny,” “Evolve” and “Rise of the Tomb Raider,” it’s an “incredible lineup” of games coming this year, Spencer writes.

Also, Xbox Feedback, the new place fans to suggest ideas for Xbox and vote on ideas submitted by others, has been busy already. “It’s been really exciting to see over 169,000 votes on the site since it launched earlier this week,” he writes. “As I said at our briefing, Xbox One is being built by you and we are better for it. I can’t wait to hear your ideas.”
