Phil Spencer Reacts To Nintendo Switch Announcement

Nintendo NX

After the announcement of the Nintendo Switch today, Xbox boss Phil Spencer made a few statements on the new console. Spencer tweeted out, saying he was impressed what Nintendo had to offer.

“I’m always impressed with their ability to state a bold vision and build a product that delivers on that vision,” he stated. Spencer, who previously stated that he found console wars to be “distasteful,” was not hesitant to compliment his competition in the market, including Sony and the PlayStation 4. A few months back he also stated that Microsoft’s partnership with Nintendo for Minecraft has been “great.”

Nintendo Switch is the new name for NX, which was the console’s codename up until today. As rumored, the system is a console/mobile hybrid making it portable allowing users to play at home or on the go. The console has detachable controllers for on-the-go gaming and a docking station for when you’re at home.

The price of the console has not yet been revealed, but we do know the Nintendo Switch will be released in March 2017. Do you think the console will be any good? What do you make of this development? Let us know about your views and opinions by commenting in the comments section below.
