Phil Spencer: Don’t wait for Live Anywhere

In an interview with the Official UK Xbox 360 Magazine, general manager of Microsoft Game Studios, Phil Spencer has told gamers not to “wait for the day when Live Anywhere goes from being off to on.”

Spencer described Live Anywhere as “a vision that [Microsoft Game Studios] set forward.” He also boasted about the “specifics of cross platform” using Shadowrun as an example. “Shadowrun was interesting step for us. I think we did some goods things there, I think we left some good things not done there but in no way are we turned away from the idea.”

Live Anywhere was first revealed at E3 in 2006 where Microsoft showed a demo of XBOX Live functionality between PC, XBOX 360 and mobile devices. There was a hint Live Anywhere would appear at GDC 08 though this wasn’t the case.
