When E3 ends, it's often debated which company "won" the show. According to Xbox boss Phil Spencer, it wasn't Microsoft, Sony, or Nintendo--or any other company for that matter--who "won," but rather gamers.

"We saw amazing games from innovative creators, developed for Xbox, Sony, and Nintendo. Some people have asked who 'won' this week and the answer is simple--the gamers," Spencer said in a post on the Xbox Wire. "It's wonderful to see our industry healthy and delivering what we all want--great games."

Spencer thanked fans for watching Microsoft's briefing on Monday, visiting the company's booth during the show all week, and reading about the new games coming out of the event. This holiday, Microsoft will deliver nine exclusive games for Xbox One*, and there's even more on the horizon, Spencer said.

"As we look ahead, our team is laser focused on delivering the best line-up of exclusive games and continuously working to deliver new features and improvements to Xbox One," Spencer said. "As always, we look forward to your feedback."

To that end, you can write to Microsoft at the company's new Xbox Feedback portal. So far, fans have submitted more than 169,000 votes since the site went live earlier this week. "As I said at our briefing, Xbox One is being built by you and we are better for it. I can't wait to hear your ideas," he said.

* 2014's Xbox One exclusives include: Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Sunset Overdrive, Forza Horizon 2, Ori and the Blind Forest, Dance Central: Spotlight, Fantasia: Music Evolved, Project Spark, Killer Instinct Season 2, Fable Legends (the beta, at least).
