During the Wells Fargo TMT Summit, Xbox CFO Tim Stuart stated that a goal for the company is to have both first-party titles and Game Pass available on “every screen that can play games,” regardless of whether they’re rival consoles.
Of course, such a notion doesn’t seem all that realistic, with it being rather hard to imagine Game Pass on the Switch, let alone on PlayStation. Still, that ambition is admirable in its own right.
From a business standpoint, assuming this would all somehow work out, it would definitely give Microsoft ample opportunity to pervade itself in every facet of gaming imaginable.
Stuart directly said the following:
“It’s a bit of a change of strategy. Not announcing anything broadly here, but our mission is to bring our first-party experiences [and] our subscription services to every screen that can play games. That means smart TVs, that means mobile devices, that means what we would have thought of as competitors in the past like PlayStation and Nintendo.”
