Interview: Phil Harrison on Xbox One

CVG:It's half time in Microsoft's big Xbox One reveal, and while we all scurry off for an intermission meat pie and pint, the platform holder is frantically prepping an E3 finale aimed at answering any of our remaining questions, of which there are many. (Phil Harison, Xbox One)

you don't get any more 'core' than Call of Duty. Having Activision partner with us to bring the Call of Duty world exclusive to our event was pretty amazing.

- Phil Harrison

Edit: Just reading through that makes me so sick.The way he tries to spin things, dodge questions and ramble about something irrelevant to the question.

Just admit it's a freaking user locked disc behind a paywall, you dbag.

I know I'm being crazy by bringing up graphics (seeing how there was SO MUCH other stuff that went wrong with the reveal), but anyone else underwhelmed by the graphics that Xbox One showcased?

I mean, it's crazy - CRAZY! - to compare the graphics of two next-gen systems. I know. But in the midst of all of the other nonsense, I thought the Xbone's graphics were pretty...incremental.
hazelamy  +   479d ago
well, the only game that showed actual graphics was COD wasn't it?

not actual gameplay, but still, what the machine could actually produce in real time as opposed to all the other stuff that was prerendered.
rainslacker  +   479d ago
It's hard to say for me.

There were a few seconds of game play graphics in quantum break, along with what i assume is a in-game cut-scene. The game play part didn't look amazingly great. Heavy Rain was more impressive and it's a few years old now...but again I'll say we didn't get to see enough to make a fair comparison.

EA was mostly work-in-progress stuff, followed by a pre-rendered(arguably in-engine) demo which doesn't give a true understanding of it's real world potential.

Forza may have been in game, but I doubt you'll see that level of detail in game play based on the specs of the video card, so it was likely selective graphics like most tech demo's are.

COD I'm skeptical on. It didn't look good enough to be PC, and only looked marginally better than what we have now.

So it's not so much that I was underwhelmed..it's more that I don't think we've actually seen it yet.

I really don't see any point in interviewing Phil about anything. This guy's answers are straight from a script and it is definitely what any Harvard/Stanford 7 or more figured salary company man would say. Straight text book.

very impressive.

'and then you don't get any more 'core' than Call of Duty.'

That made me chuckle.

"I think we will always take a customer or player centric view with this and our plans are very consistent with the way the world works today, which is if I buy a disc I can install it on my machine. I can play it and anyone associated with my machine can play it as well. I can give that disc to somebody else - maybe my son who has his own Xbox One somewhere else in the house - and he can install and play it on his machine.......I can come to your house with that disc, I can install it on your machine and we can play it and while I'm with you we can have all of the capabilities of that game. The moment I go home and notionally take that disc with me, you no longer have the ability to play that game."

So tied to your profile? He didn't explain the scenario of a person letting a friend borrow the game with out me being there or my account being active on his system

He is like The Boss. His name will forever live in infamy, but behind the scenes he was a true hero.
PANTHER1030  +   479d ago
Yeah!

Mission accomplished, Agent Harrison. You have earned the title of Lex. It's time to come home.

You sony fans can joke all you want but you missed one important comment he made

"I think that today's presentation showed a commitment to that, both in an investment that Microsoft Studios is making over 15 exclusive games that will be coming to Xbox One, eight of which are brand new IPs, over a billion dollars of investment - more than we've ever invested in content before. That's a tremendous commitment."

with over a billion dllars invested in these 15 games do you sony fans still believe they are kinect and xbla games.
boybato  +   479d ago
For the sake of 'gaming' I hope you are right.
rainslacker  +   479d ago
You realize that's almost 67 million dollars per title? Now, I don't want to discount that maybe they have a billion dollars supporting, I think, 21 studios they have now. But 70 million per game? Yeah, that's just not the case. The average AAA game budget is between 20-30 million dollars, and I'm sure most of those 15 games aren't AAA titles.

MS is sucking you in with those big numbers. 8 billion transistors ftw!!!
