    Do you think he did that? I think so.

    maybe yours is true love for him, my little buccaneer. See you in the long queue of Scorpio's launch day?

    Aren't they one and the same, only separated by time?

    Reading Cyan's worship of Phil Spencer, I thought he brought world peace and cured cancer at the same time :p

    I wish Microsoft could make a service like EA Access only for Japanese games to support Japanese developers/publishers and also to introducing Japanese games to Xbox gamers.

    I don't think I follow Phil Spencer's tweet, is he saying Microsoft had to pay to get FFXV out on Xbox One? It's not delivering to just let publishers support your platform, delivering is making it happen, i.e. paying for it to happen.

    Did Microsoft have to pay for FFXV?!?!

    MS didn't pay anything to my knowledge, the tweet is structured to pretend he had a role in getting FFXV on the platform, and that now he is going to do ever more... But he had nothing to do with XV; Larry Nelson was head of PR before Phil took his place, and XV got signed under Larry Nelson

    probably not, judging by this tweet,

    Nova Crystallis ‏@Nova_Crystallis

    Switch support is under "consideration" for #FFXIV just as XBO

    I think you're confused. Larry Hryb aka "Major Nelson" is officially Director of Programming for Xbox Live. His job hasn't changed since 2003. Phil Spencer took over as Head of Xbox back in March 2014 8 months after Don Mattrick left the company. Before that Phil was head of Microsoft Studios. None of them are heads of PR. Yusuf Mehdi is the chief marketing and strategy officer for Xbox and Aaron Greenberg is head of Xbox Games marketing.

    I just read it as, people was happy to have ff15 on x1, and he's going to try and get more.
    that doesn't mean he got ff15 personally, just that he recognises people are happy that it's on the x1 platform.
    I know it can be hard to interpret things, especially tweets sometimes, but people seem to go out of their way at times.

    if you really want alternative facts, just read some posts.

    Wrong thread
    The idea that MS paid for FFXV came from you, not him! Kinda harsh to blame him for that "alternative fact" don't you think? ;)

    You could argue that he was inferring this even though he didn't state it (as a fact or in any other way), but tweets are such a lossy way of communicating that I think it's best to try not infer too much (even though I'm sure we all end up doing it from time to time!).

    To add further context to where Phil Spencer stands in the MS corporate hierarchy, as Head of Xbox there is only one direct report (Terry Myerson - Executive VP of Windows & Devices division) between him and CEO Satya Nadella.
