***”I’ve played some great VR games, I got to play HL:Alyx in the summer, amazing. It’s just not our focus with Scarlett”***
I do think that Phil Spencer was too quick to dismiss VR as a novelty in a statement recently, but I agree with his sentiment that the focus for Scarlett should be what the Xbox platform has lacked this generation – diverse, high quality first party games.
Looking at the Twitter response it seems the majority are in agreement including Ryan McCaffrey
***”I can’t disagree with @XboxP3 here, re: VR on Scarlett. While I applaud the efforts of Sony/Oculus/Valve, the numbers aren’t there after 3.5 years. Phil would no doubt agree that the new Xbox studios’ bandwidth is better spent on games for Scarlett, not VR”***
