Microsoft's Xbox head hints Xbox One could get hardware upgrades like a PC

If you own a Xbox One, you might be able to upgrade your console with new hardware in the future. At least, that's what Microsoft's Xbox division head Phil Spencer seemed to hint at during the company's spring press event for the Xbox One and Windows 10 gaming.

According to Polygon, Spencer stated:

"We can effectively feel a little bit more like we see on PC, where I can still go back and run my old Doom and Quake games that I used to play years ago but I can still see the best 4K games come out and my library is always with me. Hardware innovation continues while the software innovation is able to take advantage and I don't have to jump a generation and lose everything that I played on before."

In a follow-up chat, Spencer stated:

"I still think a console is the best price to performance deal that is out there but when you look at the evolution ... I'm not going to announce our road map for hardware ... but what I wanted to say on stage for people when they see this vision of ours and question our commitment to console I want to make sure that people see that what we are doing enables us to be more committed to what consoles are about than we've ever been and innovate more consistently than we ever have. That's the key for me."
