Get to know the Phil Spencer Xbox wants you to know



Phil Spencer is the new head of Xbox, and as he said multiple times last month, he's all about the games. But what does that mean? Where did Phil "Gaming" Spencer get his start at Microsoft? What's his favorite game? Gamer game gaming. Games? Games. Xbox spokesman Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb recently gamed spoke with Spencer about his new position, giving us all a little more insight into the man now running Xbox. You can watch the interview above.

In the interview, Hryb asks Spencer to recollect his history with Microsoft and asks why he's stuck around with the company for so long. Spencer says it's because he believes in the people there and their enthusiasm. Hryb also asks Spencer to choose his favorite game that he worked on. We'll give you a couple guesses to see if you can figure it out.

Nope. Sorry, not that either. Give up? Voodoo Vince. "You think about all that I've worked on: I've worked on Halos, I've worked on Gears of War, I've worked on Forzas, games that are just amazing, fantastic games," Spencer told Hryb. "But to me, it's really about the memories that are created and the fun that you have when you play games. And I'll always remember Voodoo Vince and finishing it with my daughters."

Games.
