Speaking with AusGamers during E3, Microsoft's Jeremy Hinton talked about the bickering between all three platform camps and enlightened that being the only console in the marketplace wouldn't be "good for anyone".

"I’d say the last 12 months has been a humbling 12 months as well," Hinton who is business group lead for interactive entertainment at Microsoft Australia tells us. "And I think you do look at “what are we ultimately trying to do?” and so a lot of this comes from Phil Spencer in that, you know, we’re trying to deliver the best games box on the planet and if we were the only console on the market that’s not good for anyone.

"It’s not good for us because you don’t innovate as much; you’re not pushed, so it’s genuine from Phil down and through the rest of the Xbox team that we want content to be successful," Hinton adds. "We want fresh ideas from indie games, we want our competitors to bring new things to market. So at least from our perspective it’s a healthy industry, and it fits Microsoft and Xbox and the consumer as well."

Our full interview with Jeremy also covers creating unique content and services for Australians such as Bathurst being in Forza Motorsport 5 or helping to facilitate dedicated servers for Titanfall while we wait for Azure's completion on our shores, working with local indies to support development of new content for Xbox One and much more.

People are in faster, and Australia is absolutely one of the best performing markets for Xbox in the world.


Yet we still don't have azure servers? I don't understand that.
