Phil Spencer Wants Gamers To Treat Developers With More Dignity And Respect

After receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award at DICE 2022 last week, Xbox CEO Phil Spencer commented on how the gaming community should treat developers with dignity and respect.

“Keep playing, keep using your voice, understand the power of creativity, the power of community,” Spencer said. IGN. “And one more thing I would like to say, let’s respect the creators. I think that very often, creations can be a kind of weapon and used in battles between platforms and other things. Let their peers, the industry, the players play and analyze and talk about what they’re doing, and let’s just celebrate the fact that so many great games are coming out from so many creators and understand that it’s such a foundation where this industry will collapse.”.

This isn’t the first time Spencer has spoken about toxicity in gaming, having previously discussed how Microsoft would like to help weed out unscrupulous players in the online gaming space by creating a multi-network program that could extend Xbox bans to networks from other companies.

While the idea would be “difficult to implement,” an alternative would be a system to allow players to carry their “list of banned users” with them to another platform.

In case you missed it, the 25th annual DICE Awards once again honored some of the best games released the previous year. After a big win at The Game Awards, It Takes Two took home the prestigious Game of the Year award the night Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Returnal and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy won various other awards for technical and artistic excellence.
