E3 2014 is now history, but some people have wondered why Microsoft only showed their upcoming Xbox One games at the annual video game trade show, and ignored upcoming titles on the Windows PC and Windows Phone platforms.
Microsoft's Xbox head Phil Spencer attempted to answer that question during the show. He explained that E3 2014 is mainly a retail event for showcasing upcoming console games and that the company felt it was not the right venue for promoting upcoming Windows game titles.
Indeed, Spencer hinted that Microsoft might use a big PC pro gaming tournament as a venue to make some Windows gaming announcements. He stated, "Well they do these huge world championship events and they fill up arenas. I do think there could be a space there."
What do you think about Spencer's comments about Windows gaming and do you think Microsoft is really committed to that platform as he claims or is it just lip service?
