“Every Screen is an Xbox”, Xbox President Sarah Bond Allegedly Told Employees While Showing Palworld

During last week’s rumored Xbox town hall meeting, Xbox President Sarah Bond reportedly told employees that every screen is an Xbox.

At least, that’s what outlet Inverse reports based on information presented by several Microsoft employees who attended the event last week. According to the outlet, these employees have requested to remain anonymous as they weren’t authorized to speak to the media following the event. “Every screen is an Xbox,” Bond allegedly told those attending the meeting while also showing off Pocketpair’s Palworld on various screens.

“To illustrate the idea of Xbox on every screen, Microsoft showed images of Palworld on tablets, TV screens, monitors, and handheld devices”, the article from Inverse reads. “Internally, employees expressed surprise at seeing so much Palworld and joked about the possibility of an Xbox handheld, which has also been rumored. Xbox did not return multiple requests for comment.”

Some days ago we already made mention of the internal Microsoft event last week, during which Xbox boss Phil Spencer is said to have assured employees that the company will keep making consoles. “The company held an internal Tuesday townhall where Spencer told employees that there were no plans to stop making consoles and that Xboxes would continue to be part of a strategy that involves multiple kinds of devices”, known reporter Shannon Liao was first to write on her blog last week.

Microsoft has planned a “business update” for later today in which Phil Spencer, Sarah Bond, and Matt Booty will talk about the future of the Xbox brand. “We’re listening and we hear you”, Spencer wrote on X last week following rumors about Microsoft going third-party. “We’ve been planning a business update event for next week, where we look forward to sharing more details with you about our vision for the future of Xbox. Stay tuned.”

We’ll update you as soon as more information about Microsoft’s Xbox “business update” comes in. What are your thoughts on this matter? Hit the comments below.
