Microsoft will host a gaming-focused global media showcase in San Francisco on February 25.
According to NeoWin, attendees will be able to “hear from Head of Xbox Phil Spencer and get hands-on with the best games and platform experiences launching this spring on Xbox and Windows 10″.

“That’s not actually what we’re trying to do.”
If Wilson said what EA is actually trying to do, it was not reported.
