Microsoft’s Phil Spencer Says Xbox One DRM Controversy Hurt Him Personally

Head of Xbox Phil Spencer told Microsoft's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb during his latest podcast that last summer's controversy about Xbox One's DRM hurt him personally.

Spencer also said that he knows Microsoft could have done a better job communicating this last year.

"I believe in why this company builds products. It's one of the reasons why the whole thing around last summer with Xbox kind of hurt me personally so much," Spencer said. "Because I know we build Xbox for the right reasons. We didn't completely communicate it the right way; some of the decisions maybe didn't land or weren't the right decisions and we changed some of those. But this a company that has the resources to really do things that change the world."

Spencer has acknowledged in the past that some of Microsoft's Xbox One policy decisions announced last summer were "wrong."

Spencer also teased that Microsoft has major plans for PC gaming in the future.

"On the PC space specifically right now, we're doing some PC-specific work that I'm really excited about," he said. "We're probably still months away from showing it in any major way. But it's nice to see us getting back to our roots at Microsoft Studios because we started as a PC developer."
