Xbox’s Phil Spencer says Metaverse is a ‘poorly built video game’ – Destructoid
I agree with him
A version of real life, the pervasive virtual reality world has been an aspiration of sci-fi aficionados for decades, and as technology has improved in recent years, that dream is closer than ever. The Meta Project (formerly Facebook) and Mark Zuckerberg’s Metaverse project are the closest major attempt we’ve seen, but if that’s the best we’ve got, it’ll be a while until we see the world of VR closer to something Ready player one. The Internet has taken the opportunity to toast everything Metaverse has shown because it seems ridiculous. Take their latest announcement about adding legs, for example, which looks like It doesn’t even work how they said it works.
One of gaming’s most influential voices, Xbox boss Phil Spencer, shared his opinion recently during WSJ Liveas mentioned before Tom Warren From the edge. When asked about his thoughts on the Metaverse as we now know it, Spencer said, “Today it’s a poorly built video game. Building a metaverse like a living room is not the way I want to spend my time.” But he added that the concept was still in its infancy and that it “will evolve.”
Phil Spencer at WSJ Live on the metaverse:
“Today it’s a poorly built video game. Building a living room-like metaverse isn’t the way I want to spend my time. What I see in the metaverse is that we’re at an early stage and that’s going to evolve.”

Evolution is inevitable considering how unpopular the Metaverse is with both users and Actual Meta employees who get paid to use it. The truth is, it sounds awful, and so far, pretty much all we’ve seen that it’s been used for is companies trying to either pay what they sell or have their employees work virtually. Workers are already tired of it – no one wants to make their job more difficult by wearing a hot and uncomfortable headset in a digital office that looks bad. The whole idea isn’t even new in the first place. platforms like VRChat It’s been around for years, and players are enjoying this game, so at least we know it’s possible.
In my opinion, a few things have to happen before any form of the metaverse can actually take off: the device has to be compressed into Lightweight and easy-to-wear glasses, the appearance and infrastructure of the metaverse itself should improve tenfold, and those who develop it need to focus more on making it feel good rather than how much money they can pump out consumers. I’m totally with Phil Spencer on this – if they want to make something that lasts, the Meta needs to get some people who already know how to create great games on the team, because at the end of the day, all of the metaverse really is a glorified MMO.
