As part of that feature,edge spoke to Ken Lobb, Microsoft Studios’ partner creative director, to get a sense of what the platform holder’s policy reversals mean for developers and Microsoft’s position in the next gen race. Here’s what he said.
Good guy MS Studio creative director, getting a PS4 despite being a MS staff.
I would expect all execs from each company to have all consoles, I know that Albert penello has a Wii U and PS3. Im sure yoshida and the like play other consoles when their not in the office
most of them are gamers and own all the systems including the Wii... Major Nelson talks about all kinds of games even PS3 games he and the crew have been playing on his podcast
In his position why wouldn't anyone do the same thing especially if you do love games (as far as buying a PS4). It's just IMO I expected MS to go all out and be the end all be all system, but they just took a completely different approach this time out. I felt Sony would be Sony, but didn't expect Nintendo to fall so hard.
No this is the kind of stuff the fan boys should be reading and taking not of as if you only get one console because you hate another company for what every reason its you that's missing out on some amazing games.
This might be the first bit of Xb One PR I've heard that doesn't leave me feeling lied to, patronised or suspicious. Well done.
I donno.... Read it again, I'm sure you could find something. jk, jk. :)
I chose to ignore the stuff about the cloud :)
Good job! Straight talking interview, hardly any PR tag lines and lots of relatable answers. 7 more weeks! Bring it on! Edit: "Do you think the comparisons with PS4 have hurt you in the long run? And did they hurt you in the short term?" I would have answered... Well you prats didn't help us much with your obnoxious cover, assholes. lol
Great to see him fly the 'for all games' flag. It's perfectly natural to prefer one format but really, anyone who's so into games that they check the forums etc. is only losing out by ignoring the rest..
I didn't feel it was that honest of an interview. It still felt like he was cleverly weaving in MS talking points and PR. It is funny how now that the Bone is the weaker console they are now in the "all games" camp. I guess the most "refreshing" part of the interview is he didn't say anything stupid or arrogant.
"Xbox One: the state of play, according to Microsoft" Xbots will love it the rest are getting PS4's, simples!
or you know people who actually play games for the games and not the brand named box they put the disc in will get both and a Wii U to play the exclusives, with their friends on their console of choice and to experience the gimmicks that both bring (except the social aspects of twitch and the thing sony is doing i'll never do that but millions will )
Me and I assume most people want the best experience at the best price. The PS4 has the better hardware so it will offer the better version of multiplats giving the best experience, and of course the $400 price point of the console with the added benefit of PS+ and they also offer the best value. Anyone that thinks you should drop an addition $500 for a Bone and $300 for a Wii U and $xxx for a Steambox just so they can be called a "true gamer" is insane.
@RiPPN how do you know what the experience will be for the PS4 it's not out yet? maybe ND will lose the plot and release a string of god awful games? and i'm not saying drop 1200 in the one evening... hell within a year i'll say both prices will drop.... and i never mentioned the words "true gamer" i said those who play games for the games not the brand name... i'll be getting all 3 (already have the wii u) and i'm hardly a true gamer, just a plain auld gamer who doesn't get obsessed with a symbol that's on a box... if i wanted better hardware i'd upgrade the shit out of my PC and all i'd have to change now is the GPU and i'd leap above the PS4... also i assume by "better" version you mean in the graphical sense or the 6 FPS difference some people are touting... can honestly say graphics haven't played a choice in my game making decision since around 2008 and i can't distinguish between 60 and 54 FPS while actually playing a game hell i can barely distinguish between 30 and 60, my decision on what console to buy the multiplats is based on what my friends all go for... if they choose xbox one for one game, ps4 for another and wii u for a different one then that's where i'll go
Xbots? what are the people who get the ps4? how old are you?
lmao...was about to ask same question.
psheads? "how old are you?" I had an atari 2600 when a kid! :)
Cool Dudes!! ;) and you guys are the Xbros!!
He sounds a lot more reasonable than the other MS guys that usually give interviews that seem to be full of crap.
"The state of play".... for dumb people. There fixed.
"The state of Play...............STATION&quo t; there better fix!
Lol, good one.
