Phil Spencer has truly been a revolutionary in the world of gaming.
The man has been one of the loudest voices when it comes to the gaming industry, and coming from one of the most powerful organizations in the world, Phil Spencer has come out and made many open and bold statements unlike other important people in the world of gaming.
The world of consoles has been by and large lead by silent figures or the ones who give out statements in the form of press releases.
In this world, Phil Spencer is a rockstar. A man known to be an inspirational figure in the world of gaming, Phil Spencer has been coming out with many statements which have been revolutionary.
He has been leading the gaming division of Microsoft from the front and has established himself as the clear face of the company. Whether it be speeches on games, keynotes, or announcements regarding the windows 10 coming to the PlayStation, or the future of gaming on windows, Mr. Phil Spencer has been there, well dressed in a sharp suit and a white shirt, making comments in public forums.
The latest statement has been quite a firm step and a major step forward from the man. In a bold announcement he has made it very clear that the company will NOT be buying Silent Hill. “Sorry, this isn’t true,” Spencer said in response to a question from a fan. “Not sure where the rumor started but I don’t want to mislead anyone.”
The rumor has been a popular rumor online, which claims that Konami, the developer of Silent Hills was in the process of transaction, which was 80 percent complete when it was cancelled, and the rumor also suggests that Microsoft had tried to buy the franchise from the Japanese game company for “billions” of dollars.
The fact that Microsoft is spending billions was fishy because Microsoft had recently bought the far more successful Minecraft for 2.5 billion last year. Even Konami came out with the statement which says:
“Konami will continue to embrace the challenge of creating entertainment content via different platforms,” Konami president Hideki Hayakawa said said. “Not only mobile platforms, but for home consoles, arcade units, and cards, to meet the changing needs of the times.”
Guess some rumors are not just worth wasting your time on! Microsoft is NOT looking to buy the series. End of story!
