    Phil Spencer Wants Mario on Xbox One

    Although it is extremely unlikely to ever happen, Xbox boss Phil Spencer was asked by Aus Gamers whether Nintendo properties on the Xbox were something the team would consider given that both Pokemon and Mario have and are making their way to iOS and Android. Spencer said rather enthusiastically that he would love to see Mario make his way to the Xbox if it was ever possible in the future.


    I’d love to see Mario on Xbox. As someone who’s been in this industry and played games forever, I’ll still say it: Nintendo has the strongest first-party of anybody. They’re just fantastic and the memories that they have instilled in so many of us, who’ve played their games and had those delightful experiences, having those on Xbox would be great. Obviously we have Minecraft on Nintendo and when that opportunity came up to work with them on Minecraft, you know, some people might look at it and say ‘why would you even do that?’, but with Nintendo, it’s been a great partnership on Minecraft. In fact they put Mario in Minecraft on Wii U with the mash-up skin pack.


    And continuing to work with them on that and building a stronger relationship… I mean if that paid dividends down the road that lead to something else, that would be fantastic. I know I get questions all the time on would I ever like to see Banjo in Super Smash Bros. and I’m, like, “yes, I would do that in a second”. And certain people think I’m saying that as some sort of PR answer and I’m, like, why wouldn’t you?


    Anyway, I’m a big Nintendo fan and I think they’ve been incredibly important for the games industry, they do a great job with younger audiences, and if we ever had a chance to work with them in the future, I would absolutely do it.

    I like this new Nintendo CEO, he seems good
    ..oh he's head of the Xbox division?
    This is awkward...
    Well he's still doing a better job at it than Nintendo

    You know I was gonna say "his body isn't ready" but that feels so overused at this point.
    Instead I'ma just gonna say that I don't think that make much difference, at least not with the way NoJ presumably handles things. They seem stuck in their old ways and habits

    I think they could easily release some older (SNES/NES) Mario games on Xbox. Then they would be making money off the Xbox purchases and the Wii U/Switch ones.

    No it'll be Zelda on Xbox One and you'll get the crappy Play Anywhere version on PC

    That's actually a really good idea. Do you understand how good of a marketing chance it is to be able to say that Xbox is the only non-Nintendo console where you can get authentic classic Nintendo games!

    Only way this happens is if Nintendo becomes the new Sega, obviously. I don't think that will happen any time soon. With that being said, I love Phil Spencer. He has been making some excellent decisions, and that's a big reason I went and bought an Xbox.

    If this is sarcasm it's tiring.

    No it's not sarcasm. I'm actually saying that in this hypothetical scenario it'd be a win-win. Think about it:

    - Nintendo sells really old games and makes a healthy profit on a larger market share. (Plus I'm sure the hype of "Nintendo Games" on a non-Nintendo console would sell some software)

    - Xbox has something they can market as an "exclusive" to their platform (even though it's not really one).

    Nintendo wouldn't be going the third party, it's essentially the basic premise of an NES Classic Edition, a separate console that plays Virtual Console games. In this case, though, it'd be an Xbox.

    I think Phil Spencer is a bigger Nintendo fan then most people WORKING for Nintendo!

    But that concept of Nintendo exclusively licensing NES/SNES/N64 titles to Microsoft for an Xbox eShop would be friggin AMAZING.....for Microsoft!!!

    If Xbox gamers could get Nintendo classic titles on the XB1, precisely what incentive would they then have to pick up a Switch!?! Modern titles, sure. New Nintendo IP'S, yes. But this would NOT be a very wise move for Nintendo in the long run!

    I'm pretty sure most folks under 30 get a Nintendo console for new games, the fact that previous ones are playable are just a bonus of the hardware.

    They likely don't have the nostalgia for extremely old games

    I really wouldn't call GCN old, heck even N64 gets a pass, but I highly doubt that NES and SNES games will stop people from buying a Switch.

    Heck if anything it'll interest people in Nintendo again

    I seriously thought you said GNC. I was wondering who called her old.
