Microsoft Studios head Phil Spencer believes Wii U is simply an Xbox 360 posing to be something new. The guts of this man.
It was in an interview with GamesIndustry Spencer let loose feelings, offering nothing but praise for Nintendo’s latest effort.
“I think their Pro Controller makes a lot of sense with the platform they’ve built. They are building a platform that is effectively a 360 when you think of graphical capability” he said.
“Now they are really making an on-ramp for the back catalog of games that are on 360. It is easy for those games to move over the Wii U. They’ve moved the buttons around, and they’ve made a controller that feels familiar for 360 gamers, so I get why they are putting those pieces together.”
Fighting words, wouldn’t you say?
