Microsoft Doubles Down on Gaming
During a recent Microsoft shareholders meeting, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said that the company remains very focused on gaming. While the Xbox Series X/S released recently, Microsoft continues to look beyond just the hardware aspect of things as Nadella touted the potential of Game Pass and Project xCloud. It looks like Xbox consoles will remain a staple in the gaming industry for the foreseeable future and the Xbox ecosystem will continue to expand. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate brings the Game Pass lineup to Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S. PC, and mobile for $14.99 per month.
“First thing, we’re very excited about the new console launches in the market,” said Satya Nadella. “We always have sort of focused on ensuring that our gamer community that counts on us to produce the best consoles has a new generation of consoles, which are powerful and really great for gameplay. And we are supporting it with the best content with the best community.But the broader vision we have is to ensure that the three billion gamers out there are able to play their games, anywhere they want with all the content they want and with whom they want to and that’s really what we are building our strategy around.”
“You’ve seen us double our content portfolio with ZeniMax acquisition, you see us make advances in our community efforts and our subscription offers with Game Pass,” continued Satya Nadella. “And that’s what you can expect from us. We are absolutely very, very much focused on gaming, and ensuring that all the three billion gamers around the world get the best content, best community, and the best cloud services to power their gaming experiences going forward.”
