Ensuring first-party titles are ready for Xbox Scorpio is "critical," Xbox boss Phil Spencer has told fans in a reddit Q&A.

"Having our 1P games ready for Scorpio is critical," wrote Spencer.

"Very focused on 1P games. I'll be careful about when we announce things but I know strong 1P is critical," he added.

The Xbox boss says first-party software is the latest piece in the Xbox puzzle.

"It's a journey. Started w/ focus on hardware, longest timelines. We've rebuilt XBL and OS. Bringing same focus to 1P."

Spencer also revealed that you can expect the Xbox E3 conference to spend more time showing off its first-party titles.

"I want to give our games more time on stage at E3, I sometimes feel like we rush telling the story of our games at E3," he said.

As for if Project Scorpio will be announced at E3 or before, Spencer said he "can't announce this yet".

Many believe Xbox will do a big Scorpio reveal prior to E3 in order to focus on the games at the annual expo.
