This is literally regurgitating what he said in the FTC court hearings back in July. Nothing new. I swear this dude repeats himself just to stay in the news spotlight.

P.Diddy...the P stands for Phil. All in the videos press. Dancing talking just to talk.

Hypothetically, if sales of Starfield aren't meeting MS and Bethesda threshold then I could definitely see Pete Hines having talks with Phil Spencer bout the next Elder Scrolls being on PlayStation too. Bethesda is in uncharted water right now. Their newest AAA RPG launched day n date on a sub service. Lots of questions are gonna be brought up behind closed doors.

They don't care. They have enough money to bleed until the competition is driven out of business. Which is the point of all these acquisitions and why they are anti-competitive and illegal, irrespective of what corrupt judges and regulators might say.

Their share holders might. Phil sold Nadella a dream that didn't pan out. They missed all of their tatgets and projections by a large margin. Xbox has been on the chopping block several times now. At some point, people will start asking questions.

More likely it will be Satya Nadella having a meeting with Phil to discuss his severance package and hand him a box for his personal effects before security escorts him off the Microsoft campus for the last time to “spend more time with his family”.

Phil's the type of guy who'd piss on you and tell you it's raining. It's most certainly going to be exclusive to Xbox - they're just trying to ride the fence as long as they can to keep people's hopes up. As soon as it gets its first trailer, I'm 99% sure it'll be announced as Xbox exclusive.
There won’t be Xbox to make it exclusive to by that point in time.

Not only that, I can see Starfield being released in PS5 in a year or two after realizing that to make it exclusive didn't add substantial sales to Xbox hardware and didn't bump Game Pass numbers, meaning that to make it console exclusive only meant that MS left a ton of money on the table.

How can anything he say be trusted in court… Isn’t it illegal to lie in court? Clearly this information was emailed before the court
Did you really believe Elder Scrolls 6 was coming to PlayStation? Lol. Phil just used a diplomatic answer because ES6 is 5 years away and will likely launch for next gen consoles

No I didnt think they would.

Saying you dont know in court, but actually have discussed this officially within your organisation members is a bit dodgy in court. In normal people‘s cases that is perjury. Not sure how it rolls in hot shot corporation court

A diplomatic answer in court? Damn, I swear some people have brain damage, especially those on the green side.

You can just say he lied. It wasn't a diplomatic answer, it was a lie and it's a common occurrence with him. The emails from the FTC trial were very clear about that.
