Despite the common complaint that the platform lacks games, Microsoft's Albert Penello reckons that there is more stuff to play than time to play it on Xbox.
Really struggling with this right now.. So many games. Especially when I want to revisit all the old games that were updated.
I know! I really just want to play Lost Odyssey again but there's no time!
So many games, so little time!
.... You know what would be better...Lost Odyssey 2 Something...brand new and what we've been asking for years now. Just a thought
I want a damn LO2. Then I’d go buy that shit tomorrow!
Spin spin spin.
Technically even if you don't want to play it, Microsoft is still correct.
damn that SPIN!!! It made me dizzy.
So you guys must have played every game on xbox then huh? A lot of people have never played old games from 360 or older/current xb1 or og xbox games.. So their all pretty new to alotta people.
Really liked that game, and Blue dragon.
This is technically true there are more games than there is time to play them. But this is also Technically true for the Wii U! After all according to wikipedia there are 750 games on wii U, and most people would say there where no games on Wii U. https://en.wikipedia.org/wi... We want tons of 1st party AAA games on xbox1x like there is on PS4 pro, That would be a giant reason to get a x1x. Not third party and a few AAA 1st party AAA.
You XBox fans all act like the Vanilla XBox One never happened... lol it's pretty sad
Old games are good when you get something new, but the novelty wears off, for me. I’m trying hard to convince myself to buy this, or wait and build a PC in February. The problem is that it IS true that there is too much to play on PS4. And next yr is gonna be much worse. I do love that X1X has Black Desert, Path of Exile, and PuB. That is huge! But I’d play them on PC first.
@Dlaw76: No. The Switch has plenty of games. Nothing AAA that Nintendo makes themselves, but otherwise they're good. The issue with the XB1/XBX not having AAA level titles when AAA production is becoming a 3-5 year affair is that if MS is just now gearing up to make games for the XBX, by the time they come out at the very least the PS5 will have been announced. All the power that's now being insisted is win-sauce isn't going to be all that.
I'm having problems sticking to the same game, there's so many I want to play but there's so many new and old titles that I want to revisit with this awesome power!
Your fake enthusiasm is hilarious at best.
Older titles, yes (and nothing wrong with that). However, the key element (and one they seem to always dance around) is exclusive/new IP's. For now they are the powerhouse for those who want the best graphics for 3rd party games / and the sliver of exclusives they have and... That's just about it. The argument that there's more to play than there is time can be applied to every console. Still, it's not as stupid as some of the other things that they've said recently. Those who have the newest model will be happy, I imagine. Otherwise, why buy it?
Not just older titles, new titles as well. Origin, Shadow of Mordor, Star Wars BF2, COD, Forza 7... plus all the games as a service that are constantly getting new content like POE, ESO, Warframe. Just so many top quality games right now.
Those are games dude. do you see exclusive on the Box? No? then you are wasting precious time playing what ever that is. Get a PS with Uncharted, Last of us, God of War and Horizon. That's what you need to spend your money on and time with. Those are the only games you need. Feel me! /s
Bravo to Bigpappy and the guys for, yet again, trying to start some sort of fanboy war. About the 10th time today. Surprised you can find anytime to play your beastly Xbox One X.
@maybelovehate We got in the last few months Conan Exiles, Path of Exiles, Tacoma, Cuphead, Forza , Super Lucky's Tale, in a few weeks PUBG and Hello Neighbor. This narrative about no games on Xbox is absolute bs.
Of course there are games on Xbox but there are no exclusives. I hope Xbox gamers continue to ask for them and don't settle for less. MS has already stated they're on the way so hopefully soon we can get some announcements.
Shadow of War, COD, Origins and Star War Battlefront 2 aren't Xbox exclusive. What @Chaosdreams mean is the First Party Studios exclusive game. Forza 7 doesn't count as Xbox Exclusive because it's also on PC. And @Automatic79 Those games are also on PC. True Exclusive Game have to stay one platform, not other devices. MS just completely forget about it.
Some of those are multiplat. Take off the blinders.
It depends what you want and where your friends play. If you have an X1 and just got a 4k TV, this is perfect. Though, I’d still suggest getting a PS4 at some point for all the games. But if you own a PC, you can play everything on that. That’s why it’s tough for me to justify grabbing it, even though I really want to.
well, they at least expect to be happy. You can have the most powerful machine out for years but if the software isn't there to back it up then you'll be disappointed. I hope MS does something about this. I do not regret only purchasing a ps4 this generation, maybe once the xb1x becomes the default system for ms ill consider it.
I always thought it wasn't "MS has no games" (which is obviously hyperbole) but "MS has limited worthwhile exclusives -- especially lately". The latter I would agree with.
Well that's waaay different from no games. Even I understand that M$ should get in the fight and create some cutting edge software titles. But to act as thought there is nothing to do with an Xbox if you should buy one is stupid and ludicrous. I can see if you already have a powerful PC where you already play most of the games on the Xbox or if you have a PS4 and prefer to play your games there and would pickup a second console just for exclusives. But to say there are no games to play if Xbox is your main console is not even worth replying to. Honesty is the best policy. In short M$ is not wrong when they are speaking to Xbox fans, but to people who have other primary systems, they need to attract them. Best performing games on console with the X is a big draw for console gamers on other systems who find that power attractive. So that is positive just by itself, but creating unique and compelling software, would really grow their membership. So the exclusive point could be made without talking like someone from an ultimate universe. Or lying.
The term 'no games' is like Phil said above, an exaggeration. When certain parts of the media and fanboys were using this claim against the ps3 in the earlier years it was aimed at exclusive content. . Multiplats were obviously on both hd consoles but the term was still used. This gen it's the same but different as we're in the 5th year and if I'm not mistaken ms are yet create a new ip all gen. You could justify if this was year 1 or 2 and or they were using some foreign hardware or if they were cash strapped but none of those excuses can be used. Ms should be in their stride by now yet we're in a year where they've released a record low number of exclusive* content With the 1x I feel there will be some people who do want the most power and well done to ms for providing that in a slick ass compact looking chassis to boot. . I'm sure many who prefer the Xbox brand but purchased ps4's will buy the 1x but some will wait for games. . Personally I would strongly consider one but I'll definitely be waiting for a price drop and enough compelling exclusives to warrant the purchase.
Albert penello I wished you didn't dig yourself deeper into another hole. Because face it the lack content is a problem.
I can’t make sense of that headline
They're saying there's so many games on Xbox and no enough time to play them all.
Xbox let's go!
Optimus voice: Xbots! Rollout!!
So many old games to play thats the thing. They need some new experiences to play on their new console. When they start bringing out some new igames that I like, then I might pick up one.
But I haven't played all the old games yet
So is this what xbox fans are just going to accept? He might as well of said there is plenty 3rd party games available. We don't have to put our hands in our pockets and make more first party titles we don't need to innovate. This is why I went off the Xbox. In the 360 area they had some cracking exclusives. Then once kinect released they just gave up on the first party idea essentially.
I agree. I love a nice new piece of hardware, and I really would like an Xbox One X but there just isn't a good enough reason for me to pick one up right now. I hope they address this down the line.
Yes I was in the same boat. I had the Scorpio edition pre-ordered and ready to pick up at Best Buy. It was paid for. I haven't owned a Xbox this gen so I would have some games to play. I didn't go to pick it up until Thursday but then I seen the 4k TV I wanted on the Black Friday Ad that same day. The 65 Sony 900e for $1500. I thought to myself do I really need this right now? Is there that game that has my attention that I really want? Like on the Horizon Zero Dawn level. Right now the answer is no for ME. Noticed I said me. So I put that money towards my TV and Best Buy will price match the Black Friday deal when it comes. Actually they will price match anyone until the first or second week of January. So MS had my money but I can hold out for now. Hopefully they give me a reason to really want one in the future. I want to have that reason. 4k is great and all but give me that new IP that just blows everyone away. I've been waiting for 4 years and it hasn't happened. Hopefully they get their act together and by then the X will probably be cheaper anyways. So win win for me. Reading all these pixel fighting comments on here is really sad. I got my new tv, played with some picture settings, fired up Horizon in HDR, and oh my!!! The game looks amazing and really makes this pixel war seem so stupid. I remember way back in the day(sooo long ago) when checkerboad and all the resolutions between 1080p and 2160p were laughed at by a certain console. Now those resolutions are ok as long as they are above that certain console. Strange how that works. Well, I guess I will suffer playing through Horizon again(along with the new DLC), Spiderman, God of War, Days Gone, Sucker Punch's game, Death Stranding, Last of Us 2, Shadow of Colossus remake, and I'm sure Sony will announce more. This is just my list. There's even more games I haven't mentioned. I even haven't picked up Nioh or Nier. All those games look terrible btw since they're not native 4k. Just terrible I tell you. Horizon especially looks terrible on my new TV. Especially on my weak ass Pro. Continue the pointless pixel fight boys. Oh and let's not forget all the 3rd party games as well. You know the only games that count now. All those look terrible on the Pro as well. Oh, I forgot that indie games are cool now again. That Hong Kong massacre.... O_O
I might come off as hating Microsoft on here at times. I don't hate them I am just really disappointed in them. They have IP's like Kameo. I adored Kameo on the 360 such a good game. Why not work on Kameo 2? Or Give Forza a break for a year or 2 and do a new Project Gotham Racing. Or a new Conker game? Or Blue Dragon? Lost Odyssey 2? A fair few IP's they could revisit but they just seem to sit on their hands.
"So is this what xbox fans are just going to accept?" What do you want from MS? You know they are not going to announce anything new outside of E3 right now, especially because if they did have anything new it wont be out until end of next year or even 2019. So what are they supposed to say? Really what would make you happy? If you know they wont show anything until E3, and people keep dogging on them even though they say they are working on big stuff that they cant announce yet; WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM THEM? Because right now its a SHOW me stop telling me scenario and MS has already said they cant announce anything yet. So they should just stop doing their job, which is continue to market a brand? They are in a no win scenario with people like you and yet you continue to complain and belittle. How about you sit it out, and if/when MS decides to show new stuff feel free to come back otherwise you are repeating the same BS day in day out and you already have your answer. What else do you want from people?
What do I want from MS? I think you might actually have me stumped here. Tell you what I will tell you what I would of liked to see from Microsoft since 2011. Some effort would of been nice. Instead of this whole kinect crap and this TV, voice control, movies rubbish that plagued the XB1 at the start. Instead of all that rubbish. I would of liked for them to continue on releasing 1st party titles. Over the last 6 years I would of liked to of seen more first party titles. Ever since 2011 Microsoft have released the following 1st and 2nd party games: Forza 4 Forza Horizon Forza 5 Forza Horizon 2 Forza 6 Forza Horizon 3 Forza 7 Halo 4 Halo 5 Halo Wars 2 Gears Of War Judgement Gears Of War 4 Killer Instincts Recore State Of Decay Fable 3 Quantum Break Ori 18 first/2nd party titles in 6 years and 7 of them where Forza titles. Sony: Killzone Shadowfall Horizon Zero Dawn Infamous Second Son Little Big Planet 3 Knack Knack 2 The Order 1886 Driveclub Bloodborne Until Dawn Uncharted 4 Gravity Rush 2 MLB 14 MLB 15 MLB 16 MLB 17 Singstar Ratchet & Clank The Last Guardian GT Sport Everybody's Golf 21 first party/ second party on the PS4 alone. That is excluding the 40+ games they released on PS3 from 2011 to 2013. Even left the likes of Last Of Us as it's classed as a remaster. As well as PSN titles like Resogun. Not even going to bother with Nintendo as I have all ready made my point. Microsoft for 6 years has next to noting in terms of 1st and 2nd party compared to Sony alone. They have been saying for years they are going to focus on 1st party titles. At the moment in time I have no faith in them what so ever. So what do I want from them now? An apology to Xbox fans would be nice. We are sorry we have been lacking on first party content for the past 6 years. We banked on 3rd party devs to bring the games to our console as we where to busy on other things like Kinect and TV and in the last 12 months the Xbox One X. That would be nice.
Ouch. . . . . The evidence is there for all to see. . Ocelot. . .You missed a shit load of Indies. . Cup head for ms and about a trillion for Sony. . . I'm only stating this because I see ori on the list.
If an apology is what you want you won't get it until they can make it right. If they apologize before they have anything to show they will be admitting an issue with no plan to change. They have already said multiple times that they are trying to increase the software side of the Xbox brand. All I am trying to say is everyone and their mother knows that MS is losing because of the launch fiasco and exclusive software. Bringing it up over and over while they are trying to fix it doesn't do anything. They have tried to correct the system and I believe they will try to correct the software as they have said repeatedly. Now it's a sit and wait scenerio, so complaining over and over again doesn't do anything and it's not changing anyone's minds. Who wouldn't want a stronger Xbox brand right now? Everyone wishes it went better, I bet no one wishes it went better then MS. Just drop it they suck, we get it, let them try to make it better but to continue to berate them over and over on a process that takes years does nothing. They could spend 1 billion dollars today on a game and it still wouldn't be of the quality you expect for two years. Move on and come back if they ever do something you actually like.
This statement is just dumb. Regardless of numbers there is still a desire for exclusive content. I bought more than 20 retail exclusive games for my PS4 in 2017 and I have finished nearly all of them and many of them were long RPG games. Just because there is a lot of games doesn't excuse the poor exclusive line-up xbox has had in 2017.
Im glad you talked so much sense. I always see you defending ms on articles.
Microsoft are using the Jedi mind trick on you guys...lol. By this reasoning, the number of PlayStation games is just totally uncalled for I guess.
Sea of thieves, crackdown, State of decay, Ori, next halo, forza horizon 4 in 2018. #nogames
2018 sounds promising, 2017 wasn't - what about 2019? And Crackdown is not looking good - at all. They brought in the awesome Terry Crews to distract people from the fact the game is borderline rubbish.
You’re right. 2017 was lackluster for Microsoft on the AAA front. Some nice indie titles, but that’s it. Every console has bad exclusive years, Microsoft is in the middle of a bad one. And in regards to 2019, who cares? I prefer Games not being announced too early. Although Microsoft’s lackluster exclusives may cause them to announce more games farther off
Ausbo - When was Crackdown 3 announced? I would prefer a roadmap of future titles to look forward too and a few surprises along the way. The lack of announcements made me cancel my pre-orde, it would have been my first Xbox. They are not my sort of company but the X is a solid piece of kit. I can deny that.
Crackdown was delayed multiples times. You can’t count that. Microsoft typically tries to get games out earlier, within 1-2 years after announcement. Sony however typically announces games farther out. Death stranding is many years away. TLOU will probably arrive 2-3 years after announcement. They have a track record. Obviously an Xbox isn’t for everyone, but they have plenty of stuff coming in 2018.
Yeah bringing in celebrities to sell your system is a red flag for me personally.
All of those can be played elsewhere like uhmm PC??. while Spiderman, detroit become human, God of war 4, Days gone, TLOU 2, Death stranding and Ghost of tsushima can only be played on PS4 not on PC or PS now. so great
Those games all look great, but, ghost of Tsushima TLOU2 are likely 2019. Death stranding is even farther in the distance. Sony typically announces games very early. So yeah the other games look great (with the exception of days gone to me).
It doesnt matter if some of the games will release farther away, but most of them have release dates alreay. I just said exclusives on top of my head there are still plenty coming. but do the xbone have true exclusives and with that amount?? Days gone does bot impress you yet you like state of decay, sea of thieves, crackdown which all look like last gen graphics with cel shaded goofy looking characters.
😂😂😂 28514; Yeah, plenty of x360 stuff that people can play on their 360s. No need to buy $500 paperweight. 😂😂😂
pubg all im gona play when it come out same crackdown 3 and next halo maybe forza 7 also get a hotwheel track creator expansion I hope
The argument brought by Penello is 100% true, there are more games to play right now than actual time to play them. But this holds true for PC, PS4, 3ds, as well. But just to validate his point how many of you did complete all the free games given to you via PS+ or games with gold?
So your saying multiplats, BC of older titles are enough?? Wow. Talk about low standards. MS always pretends that Multiplatform is enough and to some extent thinks its only on their system. Netflix and HBO now are the same flick providers. But they have stranger things and GOT. what are they?? They are called exclusives which gives them uniqueness over the competition and not just offer the same things. The only thing Xbone X has uniqueness is just higher specs and BC of old tired games. Thats it.
That isn’t just an Xbox issue. It is this way on all platforms.
https://youtu.be/BnP_mZAv8g... I think this applies to our current console war situation.
There's more 'new' stuff to play than time to play it on Xbox. Fixed it....oh wait
Well, lets face it, this is pretty much the case with any console that has been out more than six months.
Still tho. What's the point if the Scorpio with nothing exclusive for it.
Yes, very true, that's a problem gaming fans all around on many platforms have, let alone if you own more than one console.
Haha Penello: "There's More Stuff To Play Than Time To Play It on xbox"... The same can be said for any other platform... and EVEN BETTER for PS4... ALL the stuff on xbox and 3x the exclusives :) ... They really don't know how to market their machine do they? ;) Desperation indeed!
Oh and I said the same when last week I sat with my little cousin on his PS2 session hehehe XD There was sooo much I hadn't played yet, but the new industry leading exclusives and all those multiplatforms for PS4 made me realize I didn't have time for PS2 anymore... (really Penello? you're struggling man, even 3DS can boast this argument!)
