I was not aware of Phil Spencer at the time I don’t know if there was possible that I spoke with him just at most once or twice. What’s is interesting about Phil is the fact that he’s a person whom I’m not sure. I’m not going to claim that Phil Spencer is Phil Spencer. He is the one who runs all games within Microsoft. He has personally been around, and I have even what I observed about him. He is a real person. in all respects, one who isn’t a fan of games. So they are able to trust her.
