Following the PlayStation 5’s official announcement in March 2020, Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer sent an email to his bosses, including Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and CFO Amy Hood, to inform them that the PS5 reveal didn’t cause him as much stress as he anticipated. On that day, Spencer said he believed the Xbox Series X|S was in a better position to succeed than the PS5. .
In an email dated March 18, 2020–the same day that Sony officially announced the PS5–Spencer told Nadella and Hood, “We have a better product than Sony does.” This email came to light as part of the huge Xbox leaks from the FTC trial recently.
He added: “Not just on hardware but equally important on the software platform and service on top of the hardware. We have the ingredients of a winning plan.”
