Microsoft’s Phil Spencer Promises Consistency in Xbox One Titles Well Into the Future

Microsoft’s Xbox One is set to debut in less than two days and the thirst is real for quality first and third party games for the system. One of the biggest hurdles for any system to overcome, especially in their infancy, is the difficulty of weathering launch and delivering system-selling titles that will hold gamers over until the library really starts to grow. Microsoft’s Phil Spencer used the Xbox 360′s launch as an example of what the company will not be doing this time around.

The future list of exclusive titles for the Xbox One include: Titanfall, Halo 5, Sunset Overdrive, Quantum Break, D4, Project Spark, Fable Legends, Black Tusk game, etc... There are a lot of games to look forward to. Being someone who had to endure some lengthy gaps of first party games on the Xbox 360 nearing the end of its life cycle, I hope that Microsoft has learned from the previous generation, and so far I have not been disappointed by the announced list of games. Great games on either system, so lets enjoy the games!

Microsoft can never match Sony's first party support.

Dragonborn3121727d ago

I do not understand why you had to begin talking about Sony. This is an article about Microsoft and Xbox One games, not Sony and PS4, no need to start something. Shouldn't you be enjoying your PS4 (assuming its been released in you country)?

sinjonezp1727d ago

Support into the future? Just like Xbox and xbox360?. Right......../)

You sound so insecure...where in his comment was sony mentioned? ...any way this isnt last gen, and you dont know the future,say what you will but i know ms is alot more focused on making sure xbx one has more than enough games..their budget, third party deals,number of new aa hires across all their studios and even new studios opened shows it all. ...just take a look at the number of titles coming out next year alone...dude ill advice you not to go bragging just yet...time will tell not you.

MxRBrobaFett1727d ago

He has to come on here and talk bad about ms while he waits for his bricked ps4 to come back from repairs

Yeah sin jones just like every sony fanboys swore E3 would be full of Kinect kiddie games and tv, tv, tv after micros reveal despite them saying repeatedly E3 would be all about games for the core gamers.

Keep underestimating micros deep pockets and commitment just like many doubting if X1 would have anywhere near the success they look set to have now on the 22nd due to PR, remember those polls? Yep yet X1 will sellout just slightly behind ps4.

True_Samurai1727d ago

Someone is a little insecure of their exclusives I see

ZodTheRipper1727d ago (Edited 1727d ago )

Are you guys dense? Let me explain it very comprehensible:

First you have to understand how first party works. These are direct employees to the platform holder - they are paid monthly by Microsoft/Sony and bound to the platform, not able to develop anything else than exclusives.

Microsoft has 5 major first party studios (not counting the Kinect developers of course):
- Turn 10
- 343 Studios
- Lionhead
- Rare
- Black Tusk

Sony has about three times of that, see for yourself
http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...

So while Microsoft has to rely on second and third party exclusives (which can be very expensive or only timed exclusives) to keep up, Sony just needs to pay their REAL employees (which is much cheaper than contracts with external developers) to pump out exclusives for them. Just take a look at the launch windows games for both platforms and you'll see that most Xbox exclusives are third party while most PS4 exclusives are first party games. And now think a bit ...once enough people have bought the Xbox One, why should Microsoft make more expensive deals with third party developers that don't really pay off in the end? It's much easier making profit with dashboard ads, Xbox Live subscriptions and other "services".
And that is why the last 3-4 years unfolded like they did on Xbox 360 and when applying a bit of logic, you'll realize that this won't change so easily.

NewMonday1727d ago

Gamers are skeptical because of MS's record with the 360 over the last years, everything switched after Kinect, the recent pandering is temporary until they manage to convince the masses the XBone is a media hub and that will be that.

@Dragonborn312

"Titanfall, Halo 5, Sunset Overdrive, Quantum Break, D4, Project Spark, Fable Legends, Black Tusk game, etc... "

-"etc..."? you listed every game, that's it
- Titanfall and Project Spark are coming to PC
- Sunset Overdrive and D4 are digital games
- Black Tusk game and Halo 5 are set for 2015 or byond.

drsfinest721727d ago

Halo 5 set for 2015? Lawd have mercy your so misinformed just please shut up.

NewMonday1727d ago

@drsfinest72

yep!

2015 and same time slate as TitanFall

christocolus1727d ago (Edited 1727d ago )

@zod18

Omg..you are the one who seems dense...you really need to go back to wikipedia and google to check out the full list of ms 1st party studios...cos you are highly mistaken....ms has london studios which encompass, soho studio and ms lift ...they also have studios currently incubating under lift and rare ..phil harrison and ken lobb are overseing that..then you got ms osaka (japan)developing unannounced 1st party titles...and all ms in house devs hav tripled in size over the past few years..and they have multiple games in development..343 and rare alone have atleast 3 titles each in development and some of the smaller studios are making a move to big aa games. like it or not kinect games sold well. Kinect joy ride sold close to a mill while kinect adventures and kinectimals sold well over a million..kinect sports sold over 4.5mill so dude dont count them out..cos people actually loved those games..i know my froends and i did.aside all these ms constantly getting us third party exclusives is a plus..crytek will make a sequel to ryse..they have stated it already..remedy and epic will keep making ips for xbx and ms is yet to announce the games from their partnerships with the japanese devs, titan fall is also a good one(it doesnt matter if the sequel comes to the ps4).ms just needs to keep getting us good deals wherever they find them..

@newmonday

Lmao...d4 and sunset overdrive are full games bro...stop spreading false rumors...halo and blacktusk ip were announced as 2014 games back at e3..and phil said in a recent interview he prefers announcing titles which would appear in the first two years of the console than announcing everything from the start..so basically all those titles will be coming next year...halo5, titanfall, blacktusks ip, project spark , quantum break, d4, kinect sports rivals, sunset overdrive..that lineup is even alot better than the launch line up.
...so pls stop mis-informing gamers dude

ZodTheRipper1727d ago

Sure you have fun with your Kinectimals hoping for MS striking somr good deals while PS4 users will have always something to look forward to thanks to the rotation within Sonys Worldwide Studios.

I'm not denying that the X1 will have great exclusives I'm just saying that it's foolish to think that Microsoft will be able to keep up with Sony in that matter.

Volkama1727d ago

I bought a 360 at launch and it played loads of great games. If the One gets the same level of support it'll be well worth £430.

UltimateMaster1726d ago

As long as this "consistency" isn't about the bad reviews on game.

I hope they do also. The PS3 is still churning out exclusives so it's safe to say that Sony gets it. I'm kinda wishing they would have held back The Last of Us, GT6, Beyond etc for the PS4, but I also can't imagine those games not on the PS3.

AngelicIceDiamond1727d ago

I'm glad he admitted the 360 was majorly lackin for 2 years.

I'm also glad we didn't see skittles, Usher and dancing this passed E3.

The only way to keep gamers happy is rich AAA experiences. I can't outright trust Phil's comments but I am confident that hopefully this time around they won't slack off.

The X1 has many things goin for it but fresh games needs to be the for front.

ltachiUchiha1727d ago

I really hope so because they did the same thing last gen & had a strong start & then just relied on the same couple exclusives with sequels & 3rd party games. Lets hope they turn that around this time around.

Axonometri1727d ago (Edited 1727d ago )

I would rather see them just support PC. I do not need another box that attempts to control all my other box's.

Having said that, I do want games like Quantum Break so I may end up being forced to pick one up in the future.

daedra1727d ago

Okay everything aside, I want l4d3 and Alan Wake 2... More horror Microsoft!! Zombies are rad

Dragonborn3121727d ago (Edited 1727d ago )

Well Dead Rising 3 can supply the zombies if you are looking for that. And yeah I would love for a L4D3 an Alan Wake 2. I do believe that we will eventually see Alan Wake 2, but it will be after Quantum Break. Even though I really want AW2, it is nice to see new IPs coming, such as Ryse, Sunset Overdrive, Quantum Break, Titanfall, etc...

Infamous2981727d ago (Edited 1727d ago )

Microsoft doesn't own L4D3, btw L4d3 will be on the PS4.

Edit: why disagrees??

@AuricGoldfinger Due to recent support from valve for playstation platform, the only reason that l4d1 and 2 didnt come to ps3 is because gabe newell hated the cell processor.

HugoDrax1727d ago

Microsoft doesn't own TitanFall either, we see how that turned out for Sony fanboys don't we? Just because L4D is a valve franchise doesn't mean it won't remain MS exclusive like Left 4 Dead 1 & 2. Money Talks!!!!

neocores1727d ago

No plzzz The ending to alan wake one was bad and i wass soo sad that i beat it. Its an amazing game just the ending ruins it
