GI: "Microsoft's general manager of Microsoft’s Global Games Publishing talked to us about exclusives on Xbox, the future of Remedy and Quantum Break, and lots more."
"I think it’s an incredibly strong line-up," No its not Shannon....
You're right. "I think it’s pretty good – there’s a huge amount of experiences for people to have." That is only when they include multiplat titles but so many (especailly on the forums) concentrate all their efforts on what makes each system different from the other and in this case 2017 has been very lackluster. The other question is will they get PUBG out in time? Then into 2018 we have Sea of Thieves which I always liked as well as State of Decay 2 but Crackdown 3 is really a letdown unless they can nail the multiplayer. They are releasing games outside fo the holidays so they are learning. But that is still not a lot so far for 2018.
Woooo moldy at it again ladies and gentleman. Give the guy a round of applause for trying.
Don’t know why this post is getting so many negative votes. This is a reasonable response/comment.

Why are you lyin ? Why you always lyin? Seriously said more than once isn't funny.
"The Xbox One never managed to escape its poorly received launch," The Xbox One sold better than most other platforms at its launch
Where is it now again?
Yeah but it has since fallen behind the 360.
I'm not talking about the current situation, I'm talking about the launch
Yeah. But where is it now?
Isn't it obvious? Just look at the internet.
Why don't you answer it yourself then?
Because it's obvious 😑 Idk why you keep repeating the same thing. It doesn't change what I said in my OP.
If you can't compare it to past generations, then how on earth can you say it sold terribly at launch? Switch isn't even part of the same generation, Wii U is. And Xbox One had a far more successful launch than Wii U
Blah, blah, blah.........zzzzzz
The future of a console that hasn't even released yet. For frick sake, worry about today and stop trying to distract your gamers from the rancid, maggot-infested feces cesspool you've put them in by grandeur of a future that never comes. Stop.👏Insulting. 👏 Our.👏 Intelligence.👏
Once again They mention Age of empires, a game they are working on and not releasing on xbox !
This is very generic interview and mediocre as well.
I want people to be honest. Does anybody seriously believe that Crackdown 3 could've dramatically improved or had any effect at all on Xbox One sales if it did release this holiday season? Gears of War 4 didn't do much to increase sales last year, yet people were hyping this lesser known franchise's installment to be a bigger system seller than an installment in a flagship Xbox series. I also wanna know how much of an effect did people honestly believe Scalebound would've had when Japanese developed games historically haven't performed well on the Xbox brand. Even a western game with a lot of acclaim such as Cuphead isn't performing as well on Xbox One as it is on Steam, which goes to show that the brand has a particular set of genres that it would aggressively get behind as a whole.
how many has cuphead sold on xbox?
@seniyah so nobody knows
First party single player i.p's that are expensive to make aren't selling huge units on xbox. Therefore the shift then goes to games that keep the base together, and adds to the xbox's social society element, which is multiplayer focused games. These games also help with monthly and yearly subs. Just because it doesn't have as strong single player games as ps4, it doesn't mean xbox isn't strong in other areas.
"huge amount of experiences" that doesn't necessarily mean good experiences though or ones that will sell to mainstream customers.
this year was absolutely shocking for xbox when it comes to exclusives. this time last year I was looking forward to EARLY 2017 for sea of thieves, cuphead, below, scalebound, halo wars 2 and crackdown 3 and then looking forward to fm7, state of decay 2 and at least one other game LATE 2017 and it turns out we only got 3 of those games for the whole year. if crackdown 3, state of decay 2, below and sea of thieves don't all release before e3 2018 with at least 3 other games coming late 2018 I'm going to be extremely disappointed
Fire the whole Xbox division. Things were better, when J. Allard was around. Hell, Don Mattrick was a douche bag, but at least he didn't damn near cancel every game, damn near close every studio, and constantly kiss Sony's ass.
Mattrick is one of those people that looked at in retrospect you realize that he did what he said, and he was clear with his vision for what he wanted from the Xbox brand. Sure, one could disagree with that vision, and disparage against what he did, but at least he didn't overly pander to the user base, and delivered on most of his promises, such as they were. He fundamentally changed the Xbox brand during the late 360 days, and drove it into the ground with the X1 reveal, but at least he was clear....DRM spin aside.
After reading that interview... I'm not really sure how Shannon has a job... And this is coming from a primarily Xbox player, and I dabble in a little PS and Nintendo on the side... If this is the road MS will go I may see PS and Nintendo get a bigger slice of my gaming... So if I understand correctly it was her job to oversee Crackdown 3 and Scalebound... Crackdown 3 had a major delay and Scalebound was canceled after a lengthy development time-line in which I'm sure lots of resources were pured into... Even more frightening was her actually saying on the record that Quantum Break was a terrific product... She still has a job why?
Scalebound ain't being developed by platinum games so who cares it's probably gonna have some arkham asylum style battle system (which is in my opinion garbage).
