Xbox boss Phil Spencer has tweeted out that he and his team are currently in Japan talking with game studios and publishers about 2020, and beyond.

Spencer tweeted: "Great to be back in Japan with the team talking and listening to amazing studios and publishers about 2020 and beyond. Really strong energy and excitement here about gaming's future". Microsoft hasn't been as tight in Japan as Sony has in its home country, but we could see that change in 2020 and beyond once the Xbox Series X launches later this year.

Microsoft having a larger influence in Japan going forward only makes sense, especially as it will want to battle Sony wherever it can against the PlayStation 5 with its new Xbox Series X console. Maybe Spencer and his team were there to talk with Japanese game studios about a possible acquisition? I guess we'll find out soon enough.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Anthony Garreffa

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
