In an interview with AusGamers, Spencer stayed coyly mum on the idea of Xbox One, with its cloud support, Windows 8 features, and PC-like architecture, could see some cross-play titles with PC in the future.
“I’m not allowed to leak things (smiles). But I think what you’re talking about makes a lot of sense,” Spencer said.
Spencer pointed out that it wouldn’t be the first time Microsoft has paired Xbox and windows together in a similar fashion.
Shadow Run on Xbox 360, Spencer said, pitted PC gamers against Xbox 360 customers, which the Microsoft vice president said didn’t have a whole lot of success but the process was a learning one.
Spencer also pointed to this year’s release Skulls of the Shotgun, in which gamers could save on one platform and pick it up on another.
“This connected ecosystem across all the different devices is definitely where I think the future of gaming is going,” Spencer said.
However, Spencer prefaced the idea of playing games across multiple platforms would need a system like Xbox Live to keep tabs on who a player is, who his or her friends are and what Achievements and progress in a game they may have.
