When it comes to topics such as the “console wars”, many video game fans have an assumption the companies involved in them are locked in constant rivalry.
Corporate VP of Xbox Engineering, Mike Ybarra, disagrees with that assumption. In an interview about the Xbox One X with GamesIndustry, he shares how Nintendo and Microsoft’s employees complement each other more than they compete.
“That is a very different customer. I love what Nintendo is doing with the mobility element. They are not going for the highest pixels… in fact, almost the opposite. It is funny, because Nintendo is a block from us, and so we see their employees and we talk… we complement each other more than we compete. To me, I embrace the gamer that has all the platforms, plays all the games, and the excitement that they bring.”
