So here we are in 2016 proper. Holiday party time is over, and everyone's asses are back at work. Which means different things for different people, natch. Plumbers are plumbing again, electricians are electricianing again and porn stars are thrusting their hairless cootches at cameras in someone's dodgy basement somewhere. Again.
And in the gaming world? Company execs are ramping up their Buy Our Goddamn Consoles initiatives.
Last week, we saw a little wang-waving from Sony on that score. Exclusives like Uncharted 4: A Thief's End and Gran Turismo Sport, PlayStation VR's arrival, all kinds of things came out in that interview. They didn't quite say the hackneyed old there's never been a better time to own a (product in question), but they didn't quite not say it either.
Microsoft weren't having any of that BS. Two can play at that game. Here comes bossman Phil Spencer, hyping things up in the Xbox corner.
In a recent Tweetathon, Spencer answered gamers' questions about Xbox heading into 2016. He was a little evasive, even with that useless-ass 100+ character limit in mind, but some interesting info-nuggets were gleaned. New IPs, Alan Wake's future and big things to come were all hinted at.
