I disagree, new Microsoft wanted to release it and only a massive backlash got them to delay it because they don't know what they are doing and thought it was good.
I mean, do you expect him or any other company representative to say anything else? What some people like about him is his strategy and what he is doing with the brand. Of course he’s gonna say positive things in his communication.
I love how this narrative is always peddled without anyone ever taking into consideration the fact that Phil was one of the guys with a hand on the wheel that entire time. Xbox First Party? He ran it. Managed all those studios and helped usher in the age of Kinect Kinect Kinect. He and half his current staff were all directly involved in how Xbox came to be in the shape that it was. And the thing is, he still hasn't turned it around. He used the brand to launch an entirely different service, but... First Party games? Still lacking in quality. Their output? Still middling. Their sales? Still meh.There's a lot of receny bias in the article and i think the key takeaway is this:
The award is being given while acknowledgement of the elephant in the room is take into account. When he inherited Microsoft, it was a mess after Mattrick. He was a violinist going down with the Titanic, who suddenly had to take the bridge when the captain life boated.
The Microsoft exec brought transparency and excitement during a challenging year for the industry…www.videogameschronicle.com

The infrastructure is just not there though. PS5 has launched "worldwide" but my country still wouldn't get a single system officially, PS5 launch a failure then?You answered your own question. You cannot call it a "success" based on a few people maybe using it in one country.
In fact, I don't see anyone talking about it.
In PR stuff? Oh absolutely. But the continuos bullshit he spreads to his fanbase year over year it's hilarious and it's even more comical all the religious praise around him. But I get it, he has definitely a talent to gain the other praises with his words and this thread proved it again .
What people? The forum people maybe. But in Cerny defence he doesn't speak as much as him with rethoric words blatantly false most of the times. That's something personally I never liked by him probably because remind me too much the politicians class.Don't people say "Praise Cerny" all the time? Pretty sure it's even split between the two as far as fandom goes.
Yeah put more possible CUs and TF in a GPU. No one ever did this before that's magician engineering!!! (though doubt Spencer has any kinda of idea how to design a GPU or straightly involved in any manner).Love or hate Phil.
He is the best in the business today. Visionary with the push for GPU, fruits are being born right now.
I would love him for his desires to communicate and bridge the gap between corporation and games.
How game pass push the GPU?
