Corporate VP of Microsoft Game Studios, Phil Spencer, took a dig at the recently delayed Gran Turismo 5. Unsurprisingly, Spencer is a huge fan of Microsoft’s exclusive racing sim Forza Motorsport.
“I think Forza continues to define the racing genre,” he told Eurogamer earlier this week. “Especially from first parties, given that it seems to be the only one that’s shipped.” Touche, sir, touche. It’s hard to compete against a game that hasn’t released.
“It’s the highest-reviewed racing game this generation,” added Spencer. “And it continues to include the community…I think we continue to push, as first party, this line between shrink-wrapped games, Live and that social community experience.”
