That is... definitely an interesting way to look at things.

doubt filled his eyes even before he can finish that statement lol what do ppl expect though? He's MS PR so he's doing his job. It's lies but he has to work with what he's given which isn't much lol

"Biggest exclusives," he says...

But there has been nothing this year yet, and none of those exclusives released have topped the reception of Bloodborne yet, a 2015 game

"People Buy Xbox Because We Have The Biggest Exclusives"

That's almost as believable as this scene:

He was doing so well until that statement. 😆

South Indian Bollywood movies are crazy lol

Microsoft is lost and confuse

Highlife2520d ago

So out of touch

I gotta say... I have always viewed you as a rabid fanboy of MS, but I gotta give credit where credit is due. I have a lot of respect for the fact that you have been calling out MS on their BS lately.

We all, as gamers, need to hold all of these companies feet to the fire, and it seems like all of us may get caught up in which brands we like, but we all need to stand up to unacceptable practices, and take an objective view of our gaming companies so that we can call them out on what they may be doing wrong, so that we can better the gaming industry as a whole.

Microsoft reps loves to lie and it's just ridiculous. I like the xbox brand a lot but I'm hopping off the xbox train because of the lack of exclusive titles and the lies and promises of new games coming. A lot of the fanatical fanboys are big liars like the Microsoft reps that would lie about the xbox and it's games or games that suppose to come soon.

Imagine if Microsoft didn't waste a billion dollar to bring out the xbox one x but use that money to open new studios and make new exclusive titles. Fanatical Xbox fanboys have been talking about playing old games in 4k or multiplatform titles in 4k which is nice but there aren't any exclusive titles or new ops coming anytime soon for Xbox one x. Xbox one x is a failure and it's not even out yet

Let's go through memory lane shall we...

Let's go with ALL the sites that were created to show, "where to play the best version*patten pending:Microsoft", differences of third party bloc busters last gen... and then went away once this gen started. Always stating how any difference was "HUGE".(digital foundry:patten pending).
Then how now digital foundry, the only real big comparison site left(rip lens of (Microsoft)truth), never sees a big difference but let's compare PS4 to pc and rip it apart.
Let's go with microsofts marketing dollars campaigning "where to play the best version"..

PS4 players mocked the price and the hard time for microsofts new gen console to reach 900p and at the 3 year drought the 360 had due to Kinect and then revealing the new gen with absolutely nothing new.

You will also remember that 40% of psplus subscribers for the first year of this gen was new accounts. Couple that with the huge gain for Sony in the gaming market spells out the players jumped ship way before "graphics" was the reason... it was due to games.

Let Microsoft put a 4k sheen on this gen games... they still will not be as much or as good as the games and game engines Sony develops, co-create, or fund.
It's that simple.
If a major Microsoft person is literally standing there boasting about exclusives... that is literally spitting on every person that owns their console.
They got called out for monopolizing third party games in order to have exclusives and proving for not being an actual gaming company.
You can not name one AAA new first party game in the last 7 years. 7 years. That is absolutely crazy.

Damn Greenberg.... how could you say that with a straight face?

I mean maybe on some alternate way of spinning things they may be partially right. Gears is a pretty big exclusive, Forza too and Halo is probably their biggest. Those three right there are probably the biggest exclusives Xbox has.

Come on man, I want new takes on old games if they arent going to give us any new games. How about some long overdue sequels to games like Stubbs the Zombie, Crimson Skies, Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey, Blinx....

Shineon2520d ago

Gears 2 is better the Bloodbourne
A 360 exclusive

Dirtnapstor2520d ago

Maybe he was referencing file sizes for the new XboxoneX games?!
(Heh heh)

“The great thing as a gamer is no matter if you’re a fan of RPGs, or racers, or shooters, no matter what kind of game you like, these games are going to look and play better on Xbox One X,”

ummmmm first get some of the JRPG's on your system so they can look good. Then we can talk. Not talking ARPG's but traditional turn based JRPG's.

I think what Greenberg means is they have the biggest in terms of file sizes. /s Marketing people are like politicians. If they say something enough times they convince themselves it's true. PR means Public Relations. But nowadays PR is more synonymous with spin, lying, etc.

modelgod2520d ago

You just got 123 likes , and you gave out false information. You said " none of those exclusives released have toped the reception of Bloodborne yet." Look at the sales of Halo 5, and look at the sales of Bloodborne.....I'll wait!

modelgod2520d ago

The only PS4 exclusives that sold we'll we're Horizon, and Uncharted; 8 million+, and 3.8 mil respectively. Nioh, Personna, Street Fighter, Nier, etc.. all hovers around the 1.1-1.8 milion mark. All of these great exclusives and less than 3% of PS4 owners are actually buying them. I know a lot of PS4 owners who doesn't have a clue as to what Persona, Nioh, Nier, is. I kind of see what he means because atleast 80% of Xbox owners knows gears, halo, and Forza. Heck, if you want to stick with the ORIGINAL PS exclusives; GOW, Grand Turismo, I'll throw in Uncharted, I don't think 80% of PS4 owners know about those games. I know it sounds mindblowing but the average CONSOLE owner is clueless, and I'm talking about all consoles. I know, as well as everyone on this site, that the PS4 lineup is insane, and alough he is delusional if he thinks Xbox has the beat exclusives, but as far Gears, Halo, and Forza goes, RELATIVE to how MANY xbox owners knows those titles. ....I kind of feel what he's saying. ALTHOUGH.....that's not what he meant.

trouble_bubble2520d ago (Edited 2520d ago )

Dude, those games you listed. Nier Nioh Persona, Horizon, they only came out a couple months ago. Don't go comparing the new kids' lifetime sales already vs Halo which is plural years old.

Ask yourself instead what came out in that same window this year on Xbox to compare realistically. The answer is Nothing. Well actually Halo Wars 2 did. And it bombed at only a couple hundred thousand sold. Where were those 80% of fans who you claim know Halo?

That's the issue. The attach rate on a nonexistent product will always be 100%. You can't brag about 100% of zero.

You forgot to mention infamous second son, KZ shadowfall, Bloodborne which are all near or past 3 million, the same as Gears 4 estimates. Ratchet is over 2 million as is Driveclub. Shoot if Forza is known by 80% of Xbox players as you say, why didnt FH2 sell 30 million? Why should Persona then? It's unrealistic

This is so sad...I mean I'm actually feeling sorry for them

At the same time though it's hilarious

subtenko2520d ago

im not, for the past 3 years there announcements have wasted my time with disappointment...

plus they try to make xbox players peer pressure crossplay with ps4 users knowing well what it means for them with their crafty Terms of service (im glad sony is smart enough to know the consequences)

GottaBjimmyb2520d ago

For 2014/15, they would have an argument, but their '16/'17 lineup has been pretty minimal.

-Foxtrot2520d ago

Worst part is that next E3, once they use their special PR skills and go on about their line up people will be roped into it yet again not learning for the past 3-4 years that they always disappoint

It's a pain because we have so much evidence and this kind of crap makes it worse. It's like their blind arrogance back when they were trying to make Kinect a thing.
