“Xbox One Is The Best Place for Gamers” Interview with Microsoft

Strong words from Microsoft, after unveiling the Xbox One earlier this year there was concern that the system was becoming more main stream. Focusing instead on television integration as opposed to quality gaming.

At this year’s E3, Mircosoft is now singing a different tune. On VGS this week, Craig Flannagan from Xbox Canada joins the show to discuss why, “Xbox One is the Best Place for Gamers."

what you want them to say ?!...really ?!

NewMonday1113d ago (Edited 1113d ago )

they talk the talk but don't walk the walk

in the XBone event it was all TV TV sports TV

LaChance1113d ago (Edited 1113d ago )

But you conveniently leave out the E3 event ...

Sorry but going from both MS and Sony's E3 event I'll be going with the XOne.

MS showed loads of exclusives while Sony just showed multiplats with exclusive timed DLC. Funny huh they actually pulled a MS :)

You can have the exclusive DLC for Destiny, I'll go with the exclusives, you know that thing that was seriously lacking form Sonys event.

"“We’ve given developers a pallet to create games unlike anywhere else” citing 17 exlcusive titles coming for the Xbox One in the first 6 months of release, 10 of which are completely new IP’s. "

My god, MS is telling the truth. There are exactly 17 exclusives, and 10 of them are indeed new Ips, all were revealed at E3.

Below
Crimson Dragon
Dead Rising 3
D4
Forza Motorsport 5
Halo
Killer Instinct
Kinect Sports Rivals
Quantum Break
Ryse: Son of Rome
Sunset Overdrive
Project Spark
Minecraft: Xbox One Edition
Fantasia: Music Evolved
LocoCycle
Titanfall
Zoo Tycoon

That is even before Black Tusk Studio, Lionhead, Epic, Team Osaka show their games yet and from the surprise publishing deal with Dead Rising and Sunset Overdrive at E3, other third party exclusives being published by MS will no doubt be in store in the future as well.

Anyone care to explain why someone who says all the talk was about TV gets more agrees than those who mention E3 and list actual games coming gets more disagrees?

This is what happens when you have a gaming site dominated by one fanbase, a false representation of what's really going on.

@ MikeMyers

"This is what happens when you have a gaming site dominated by one fanbase"

No, this is what happens when Microsoft prioritizes (i.e announces first) TvTvSports. Some people believe MS's PR when they say "we're all about the games". Other people doubt that same PR. Some people have reasons to believe the PR (look at all they showed off at E3). Others have valid reasons to doubt it (but look at their track record and look at the X1 reveal event).

The public opinion is against the X1. Not 100%, of course, but it is lopsided. So, why is it odd to see a reflection of that on a gaming forum?

For the record, this is exactly what happened to the PS3. PS3 had its loyal supporters, but for several years the PS3 was seen as inferior to XBox 360.

DivineHand1251113d ago

Don't forget that there are many gaming events between now and the launch of the consoles so just because Microsoft laid down all its cards at E3 mean that its competitors did the same. Over the previous years, Sony has shown very few new games at E3 and either announces games before or after the show. Nintendo has also said that they intentionally held back on showing new software during E3 because they wanted to have exciting announcements in its future directs.

You know what's REALLY funny? The "exclusives" argument was made against the PS3 at the beginning of its life (PS3 has no games, Xbox 360 has better exclusives, etc) and look what happened. When are people going to learn that Sony always has too many exclusives to show all at once?

@DragonKnight,

What's even funnier is hearing people suggest the Xbox One isn't about games and when people list games those people don't comment on them while at the same time moving the goal posts.

Xbox One having LESS 1st party exclusives than PS4 (20>15) from LESS talented developers (Sony studios>MS studios) means it's the best place to game? lol

Xbox One having LESS PC/Console (F2P or not) exclusives than PS4 (PlanetSide 2, Warframe, Primal Carnage, Blacklight, DCUO etc. etc.) means it's the best place to game? lol

Xbox One having LESS indie exclusives and indie support in general than PS4 (Outlast, Octodad, Secret Ponchos, etc. etc.) means it's the best place to game? lol

Xbox One having inferior hardware compared to PS4 (50% less powerful GPU) and less efficient RAM for games (DDR3) means it's the best place to game? lol

Wow, just, wow... Just how far will MS's delusion take them. XD

TI_211113d ago (Edited 1113d ago )

@Sonic Just want to point out one inaccuracy.

The PS4 has a 50% stronger GPU than the X1.
That means the X1's GPU is 33% weaker. ;)

xJumpManx1113d ago

@sonic200, how may of the ps3 exclusives were cheap psn titles?

Mounce1112d ago

What microsoft meant to say was, Xbox One is the best place for suckers.

As the interview ends and they get into their limousines and begin laughing hysterically while drinking champagne

For the sake of the people who plan on buying the X1 I hope this remains true. While I don't think its absolutely the best place for gamers, its pretty obvious that this your average run of the mill PR talk.

PureSophistry1113d ago

Do not disagree- Playstation rep was a thousand times better. Even if I am partial to Xbox. Easy to do great PR when you have public support

RandomDude6551113d ago

The cloud is foggy on this one

KingPin1113d ago

"xbox one is the best place for gamers"

said no gamer ever.

True_Samurai1113d ago

Says Me and the other million gamers that support them ;-)

TheGrimReaper00111113d ago

he didnt actually finish that sentence
"xbox one is the best place for gamers to get screwed"

RandomDude6551113d ago

nah,

"xbox one is the best place for gamers to watch TV TV TV TV , after a gaming session on PS4"

No_Limit1113d ago

"“We’ve given developers a pallet to create games unlike anywhere else” citing 17 exlcusive titles coming for the Xbox One in the first 6 months of release, 10 of which are completely new IP’s. "

Man, that is great news. More games, the better. Xbox 1 is indeed focus on gaming. Can't wait for the first wave of games to drop.

latincooker2141113d ago

lol its the Xbot No Limit again hi there have fun with your cable box bud. PS4 FTW:) i hope they keep the ball rolling for you 3 years from now. and BTW don't forget to cash that check from microsoft.

True_Samurai1113d ago

Oh it's the $ony bu++lover Latincook came to troll yet another Xbox article. Dang son you keep this on you'll be a CEO soon :-) oh BTW make sure you wipe your face after Sony is done with you ;-)

AngelicIceDiamond1113d ago (Edited 1113d ago )

Seriously @latin? And yet dense stupid fanboys say "Huur durr this is not a Sony fanboy site." Yeah ever time there's a major Xbox article Its ALWAYS Sony fans who comment first. The fact that You got all those Agrees for an extreme fanboy comment who should be marked for trolling. And no limit got all those unfair completely biased disagrees knowing he didn't say nothing wrong but stated his excitement is simple proof of no life jealous fanboys.

So I'll ask this, why do Sony fans always invade Xbox articles instead of Xbox fans since it pertains to them?

And how come I see little to no Xbox fanboys in a major Sony related article. "Since this site is even with fanboys."

Btw coming into a an Xbox article and arguing with MS fans is not a sign of this site being even genius's.

Why is it so hard to get a decent conversation going regarding MS articles because you have to fight through a sea of stupid no life fanboys?

I don't wanna hear a fanboy ever tell me this isn't a "Pro Sony site" ever again. I'll just mark you down for trolling.

Anyway I like what MS showed as well. I wanna see more on Titanfall, Quantum Break and Insomniacs new game very soon. X1 does have me excited and intrigued.

Kryptix1112d ago

lol It's funny cause back in 06, this site was filled with Xbox fanboys posting Sony doom articles all over the place. Now that the tables have turned starting with the PS3's great recovery, now people are bitching how this is a Sony fan site. No dummy, this website goes with what's best. Wait your turn when Microsoft tries again with a less TV focused console and when they don't try forcing unwanted "features" up your behind without knowing then reverses it into something else. PS4 is the most comfortable system for gaming at the moment since Sony takes the time to listen to fans and developers.
