Phil Spencer comments on Street Fighter V exclusivity on PS4

Street Fighter 5 received an early unveiling as a PlayStation 4 and Windows PC exclusive last week thanks to a video popping up accidentally on YouTube. Over the weekend, Capcom confirmed the game’s exclusivity and PlayStation officials noted that the PS4 is the only console the game will ever show up on.

Fans took to Twitter to react to the news and some asked head of Xbox Phil Spencer his thoughts on the news.

"Business deals happen," Spencer wrote in reply to a question on Twitter about the deal. "We won’t do all of them. When we have a 1st party franchise in a genre I’d rather invest in ours."

"I’d love it if Xbox fans could play all of the games, but business just makes some deals happen," he replied to another tweet. "It’s all part of competition."

Spencer added, after a fan wrote that delivering a new Banjo-Kazooie or Conker to the Xbox One would make up for the loss of the next Street Fighter on the console,  that he loves the idea of "game franchise bartering. I’ll work on making amends for SF."

He also noted that he’s seen Twisted Pixel’s new game and that it’s "very different from anything they’ve done before."

Spencer also talked in broader terms about the weekend’s PlayStation Experience, which he seemed to like. While he didn’t shoot down the idea of an Xbox-focused event in the future, like Microsoft’s X0 events, he did write that the having a great E3 and GamesCom is important. He also said that the Xbox One has a solid year in front of it.

"We have surprises, announces and great games shipping in 2015, we’ll deliver on all three," he wrote in one tweet.

In another he noted that competition is good for the industry.

"I appreciate the competition, they do good work," he wrote. "I just focus on us and like you say, I think that makes us better."
