‘Business deals happen' – that's the reaction from Xbox boss Phil Spencer to the news that Street Fighter V will be a PS4 console exclusive.
Capcom's game was last week revealed as a PS4 and PC exclusive.
Business deals happen. We won't do all of them,” Spencer said on Twitter. When we have a 1st party franchise in a genre I'd rather invest in ours [referencing Killer Instinct].
I'd love it if Xbox fans could play all the games, but business just makes some deals happen. It's all part of competition. Love the idea of game franchise bartering, I'll work on making amends for Street Fighter.
I appreciate the competition, they do good work. I just focus on us and like you say I think that makes us better.”
Spencer also complimented Sony on its PlayStation Experience event at the weekend.
PSX was a nice event, good way for Sony to celebrate 20 years,” he added. I watched, it was well done. I feel good about 2015 for Xbox.”
