The Corporate Vice President for Microsoft Game Studios, Phil Spencer, has stated that while creating new intellectual property isn't easy, it is something that his company - rather than Sony - will concentrate on, especially with third-parties.
Talking to GameInformer, Spencer states, "So, it will continue to be something that we focus on with new partners like Crytek and new people that aren't announced yet. We do think that it's fundamental that core gamers look at 360 as the place they want to play games."
Despite that positive message, however, he also takes the time to have a pop at Sony, "They've done a great job at selling old franchises with HD remakes."Apparently
he also point our that, "Microsoft does not want to sell gamers something they have completed already."
Bear in mind that Phil is the man who would like to see Microsoft upping the release frequency of Halo
, having had some success releasing an HD updated version of... Combat Evolved
