Xbox Chief hanging out with Hideo Kojima during his visit to Tokyo

Phil Spencer recently traveled to Tokyo, Japan to attend the Tokyo Game Show 2022. Moreover, the event brought together many famous video game developers. One of those many game developers was Hideo Kojima, the Japanese genius and mastermind behind games like the Metal Gear Solid series and Death Stranding.

Kojima recently shared some photos with Spencer, who visited his office. It’s no secret that Xbox and Kojima Productions are cooking up something exciting. We already saw in August that Xbox Game Pass for PC added Death Stranding, an action game developed by Kojima for PlayStation.

Moreover, Spencer recently shared in an interview that he knows Sony is better than them in the gaming industry. However, he also wants to improve Xbox, making deals and investing to strengthen the name of the mark in the gaming industry. Spencer even said that he likes to visit Tokyo, where he meets talented developers and has a production partnership with Kojima.

Kojima even appeared on Xbox & Bethesda Showcase 2022, discussing his enthusiasm for working with Xbox’s cloud technology. So, Xbox fans should look forward to playing a Kojima masterpiece in the future. However, this news might not be very joyful for PlayStation fans.
