Do you see how despite the point you tried to make your opening words look like a natural inclusion so as to establish that we are both gamers on a level footing in the conversation, because it was (probably) automatic for you to share it as part of your gaming habits.I've been playing games adamantly for a quarter of a century. If someone asks me about my gaming habits I'd give them a daily/weekly rundown, not my life story.
I promise you, that that's the case for most people into gaming. He wasn't having a casual conversation with a friend at a bar, he was answering an interview question about his gaming habits
The interviews from Bloomberg have felt like fluff pieces of PR for Xbox, followed by negative speculations about PlayStation in the last few years IIRC, so I'm pretty sure they would have worded this interview any way Nice Guy Gamer, for Gamers Phil wanted. His PR team failed to spot the importance of his gaming journey to establish him as a credible gamer, and he maybe isn't a life time gamer if he didn't react like you, and that IMO is why it isn't included in the interview - unlike the details from Iwata and Inaba's interviews I recounted which established their inherent connection to gaming.
