Phil Spencer, head of Xbox, led the presence of the Microsoft brand at the Tokyo Game Show 2023 and took advantage of the occasion to visit Hideo Kojima. During his participation in the Xbox x Esports ExtrasJapan event, Spencer generated a stir among attendees by accepting a peculiar favor.
One player brought with him the cover of his PlayStation 5 and asked Phil Spencer to autograph itwhich the head of Xbox accepted in a humorous way, asking the audience if it was okay for him to sEsports Extrasa product from the rival brand.
This gesture from Phil Spencer was well received by both the gaming community in Japan and internationally, being highlighted by Shawn Layden, former head of PlayStation, who shared a Kratos from God of War celebrating the Xbox executive’s autograph. This gesture symbolizes the idea that there is no console war, but rather a community united by the passion for video games.
