PlayStation Execs Congratulate Xbox's Phil Spencer On His Award

It was announced yesterday that Xbox boss and Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer would be the next recipient of the prestigious AIAS Lifetime Achievement Award on Thursday, February 24th in Las Vegas, and many industry members have since been taking to social media to congratulate Xbox's head honcho.

Spencer has responded to many of these including 343 Industries head Bonnie Ross, Gears of War creator Cliff Bleszinski and Gearbox founder Randy Pitchford, along with Naughty Dog's Neil Druckmann and current / former PlayStation executives including Shaun Layden, Hermen Hulst and Shuhei Yoshida. Quite the list!

As we mentioned yesterday, Spencer's reward is "reserved for individuals whose accomplishments span a broad range of disciplines over a lengthy career in the industry." Those who are selected to receive it (there haven't been many) are said to have "driven significant and positive change across the industry."

It's great to see the industry coming together to celebrate Spencer's achievements... we'd like to pass on our own congrats, too!
