Microsoft’s Xbox One Might Get Hardware Upgrades
Microsoft’s Xbox chief Phil Spencer has hinted that the company will offer optional hardware upgrades for the Xbox One in the future. Speaking at an Xbox spring showcase event last week, Spencer revealed that Microsoft plans to make the Xbox One more like a PC. “We can effectively feel a little bit more like we see on PC, where I can still go back and run my old Doom and Quake games that I used to play years ago,” said Spencer.
Spencer suggested that Xbox One owners could be offered optional hardware upgrades to stay current with new technologies, but that existing games would still run on the new hardware. That may suggest that Microsoft isn’t planning additional console launches, but Spencer refused to elaborate more on the company’s hardware plans, noting that he didn’t want to “announce our road map for hardware.”
