The Microsoft gaming chief has been met with some criticism over recent comments dismissing the innovative platform, and one fan suggested he should acknowledge its success to date while leaving the door open for its use on Project Scarlett or other platforms in the future.

Phil admitted it was "fair feedback", and tweeted: "I've said publicly, I love how our industry has pioneered: AI, physics, 3D, RT, VR/AR etc.

"For us, it's about focus on our innovations right now. I've played some great VR games, I got to play 'Half-Life: Alyx' in the summer, amazing. It's just not our focus with Scarlett."

His comment comes after he claimed he had "some issues" with the platform and insisted "nobody's asking for VR".

He said: "I have some issues with VR. It's isolating and I think of games as a communal, kind of together experience.

"We're responding to what our customers are asking for and... nobody's asking for VR.

"The vast majority of our customers know if they want a VR experience, there's places to go get those. We see the volumes of those on PC and other places."
