Local computing power will continue to be important for a long time, says Phil Spencer.
Spencer was asked if the Xbox One would be the last console of its kind which Microsoft releases, suggesting local hardware would be less important in the next generation.
“I don’t. I think local compute will be important for a long time,” responded Spencer.
He added: “You can look at mobile, connected to faster networks, more cloud services but local power still increases each gen.”
“Bandwidth caps clearly an issue, still believe HW & SW engrs working together will find local HW scenarios critical.”
