It's no secret that the Microsoft Store is difficult to navigate on Windows 10. You can't find games that easily and even updating games is quite a chore. Due to this and many other annoyances, a lot of people don't like using it. Luckily, it seems like Head of Xbox Phil Spencer knows that it's an issue and promised to fix it during today's Microsoft event.
Today during X018, presenter Julia Hardy asked Phil Spencer what he saw as the future of gaming. Instead of giving some grand answer about the prevalence of virtual reality, he mentioned how he would like to fix the Microsoft Store to make gaming content more discoverable and easy to find. Additionally, he added that he was committed to powerful hardware like the Xbox One X, so that Microsoft would lead the industry going forward.
The Xbox One X may not have had a lot of support in 2017, but 2018 changed that rather dramatically. Games like Red Dead Redemption 2 achieve native 4K resolution on the system, but utilize fuzzy checkerboarded techniques on PlayStation 4 Pro. There are some titles like Immortal Redneck and We Happy Few that run at 1080p on PlayStation 4 Pro and native 4K on Xbox One X.
Hopefully Microsoft will ensure that it has great storefronts and hardware going forward. The public image of the Xbox One should serve as a learning experience for the future.
