In its entirety, the message from Spencer wasn’t one that contained any key pieces of information, but it was good to see him make a statement in collaboration with the release of the Xbox Series X/S. Perhaps more so than any other console manufacturer, Spencer over the years has always been someone that likes to speak directly to consumers in this manner. It’s nice to see that even moving into the next-gen, this trend will seemingly continue.
