Microsoft exec pledges free-to-play support coming to Xbox One

Microsoft has been curiously slow to embrace free-to-play, with only a few offerings on Xbox 360. Sony, on the other hand, has been much more aggressive, with free-to-play games on both PS3 and PS4. In spite of their slow start, Microsoft promises that more free-to-play experiences are coming to their next-gen console.

"Good success with F2P on 360 will mean things come to Xbox One," Microsoft VP Phil Spencer tweeted (via Gamespot). "We'll announce closer [to] their launches."

Currently, the only free-to-play experiences on Xbox 360 include World of Tanks and Happy Wars.
