In an interview with Gamespot, Microsoft Game Studios executive Phil Spencer has promised it’s not leaving the Xbox 360 behind since announcing the Xbox One earlier this week.
Here’s what Spencer told Gamespot:
“I think the [Xbox 360] is going to be very vibrant for many years. In fact, we have a huge, I think it’s huge, [Xbox 360] announcement for E3 that I keep wanting to talk about, but I can’t. I think it will surprise people. I loved what we did last year with Minecraft; bring Minecraft to the box; six million units later it’s kind of a beast. I think there’s a lot of life in the [Xbox 360] for years to come.”
Over 77 million users have bought the Xbox 360 worldwide so it makes since for Microsoft not the abandon the platform so quickly. Sony has Gran Turismo 6 for the PS3 later this year, maybe Microsoft has a killer exclusive for the Xbox 360 too?
