Practically two months ago, Phil Spencer – the head of Xbox – appeared in a Microsoft stream, and in that stream, he had a rack That might not seem like a huge offer, however in the past, Phils utilized his shelves to tease, and even coyly reveal, numerous Xbox surprises – like the Xbox Series S, which he had on his bookshelf long before the official expose. Bethesda huge pet Todd Howard even took a page out of Phils book back in September 2020, teasing the brand-new Indiana Jones video game with an antique on his shelf.
When Phil appeared on a stream, eagle-eyed investigative fans scoured his shelves for anything they might discover. 2 products stuck out: a Kojima Productions Ludens figure, and a Nintendo Switch.

The rack in concern, with the Nintendo Switch on the top shelf.
In a current podcast for GamesBeat, journalist Jeff Grubb stated that “basically everything” on Phils shelves indicated something, including the Nintendo Switch. Also, a widely known and (according to Reddit) semi-reputable leaker called “Shpeshal Ed” said that the “cat seems to be out of the bag” concerning Xbox and Nintendo, and that we would hear more in the Autumn. Its still a rumour, naturally, however proof is mounting that Phil was, certainly, meaning something.
