Eurogamer: Microsoft's Don Mattrick Interview

Eurogamer writes: "Little did we know when we spoke to Peter Moore at E3 last year that he would be gone from his job as head of the Xbox business weeks later. His replacement, former EA executive Don Mattrick, has kept a low profile since then, sending his deputy John Schappert to face the press, us included, at GDC earlier this year. But he came out with a bang at E3 earlier this month when he said: "I'm willing to declare here today that Xbox 360 will sell more consoles worldwide this generation than PS3." Not even his charismatic, tattoo-loving predecessor ever went that far.

Is he right about all this? He says time will tell. We expect you'll have a few things to say about it too. Read on for our complete E3 2008 Don Mattrick interview, which also includes the full section containing yesterday's startling claim that Bungie happily accepted the decision not to show Halo, as well as Mattrick's views on digital distribution and Blu-ray."

This guy is getting tired and old. He keeps making grandiose statements that, when looked upon logically, are full of crap. "Xbox 360 was the first console to sell 10 million units". Yeah. When you consider it had an extra 12 month period to sell in than it's competition. *yawn*. The Wii is the best selling console, even though it targets a different demographic than the PS3 and 360.

Also he stated at E3, "I'm willing to declare here today that Xbox 360 will sell more consoles worldwide this generation than PS3." This is also tired and sad. Any one person can look at the numbers and see that the PS3 is gaining all the time in at least 2 of the 3 major regions around the world between North America, Europe, and Japan. In the same span of time, 1 year, since their respective releases, the PS3 actually sold something like a million or more consoles than the 360.

This guy can keep blowing smoke, but I'm not listening anymore. He just makes me sigh and shake my head. Anyone else out there with me?

Veryangryxbot3797d ago

but on the 360 camp? Only for 360. Thats right, not even Reggie's hardcore spin last weeks was more retarded of a claim than the claims of this ignoramus.

He comes across as an arrogant and ignorant fool. Just his speech alone, made the 360 fanbase decline in numbers.

Only for 360 guys! This ignoramus is a 360 exclusive.

ok so when PS3 passes the 360 can I laugh then??
I mean who laughs last, laughs best right??

He looked way nervous during the press conference. Lets see if he can handle the heat!

PirateThom3797d ago

This is the new Peter Moore and he's already a poor excuse for a PR guy.
