Phil Spencer, Microsoft Studios’ corporate vice-president, has made it clear that a steady flow of first party games for the Xbox One will be a priority.
Hopefully they saw the massive catching up PS3 did due to the lack of exclusives late in the 360 life cycle.
Agreed. The last 3 years of the 360's lifecycle had months and months of "gaps" between worthwhile titles, especially after MS shifted focus toward Kinect. Hopefully Microsoft realizes that it was their behavior in the first 4 years - not the last 3 years - that allowed the 360 to become such a popular console.
I really think MS learned they have to keep exclusives coming. Personally, I don't care who makes a game as long as I like it, but for the console itself, exclusives are nice to have. It looks like the +billion they threw into their studios and the new ones they opened appear to be working. Lets hope they deliver good games.
That's great news, it seem's they know what their mistakes were for the past couple of years...
So far the outlook is good, hopefully the 'launch window' won't be Wii U epic!
And this my fellow gamers is the reason why competition is good.
Even more confident in my purchase with that statement It's going to be great years of gaming ahead My excitement for Halo 5 is up there but the real time graphics of Quantum Break and Black Tusk look incredible
I totally trust them at this point.
I have been saying this yet some gamers on this site kept refering me back to the 360s lack of ips...ms has learnt...they are doing major investments into new studios, new ips, hiring great talents and investing big into third party exclusives too..just go online and do a research ...rare , lionhead , blactusk, 343, turn 10 etc..have all been on a hiring spree...thier numbers are huge now and the devs they are hiring are aa rated , they have multiple teams .not even mentioning the new devs or new studios..almost all their in house studios have more than 2 titles unannounced and currently in development...this is great news...next year alone we got sunset overdrive, quantum break, titanfall, halo5, fable legends, kinect sports rivals and story mode/new characters dlc pack for ki.
Agreed and also a tease from Phil about maybe even a Battletoads and Crackdown comeback. He also said he's working with some Japanese developers to bring some games to the Xbox One. I am very curious to see what they have lined up next month. I am really hoping for a Perfect Dark. That title needs to be up there with Halo as the go to console FPS exclusive.
Lol..its like you read my mind.
fable, forza, halo, repeat....
Add sunset overdrive, kinect sports, d4, quantum break, ryse, crackdown etc to the list...but since you aint getting the xbx one, it shouldnt bother you much what titles they release...just the ones above will hold till the next wave.
