Schappert: We've got the best games and all the franchises on Xbox 360

Corporate vice president of Xbox Live, John Schappert has told the BBC that now the Metal Gear franchise is heading to Xbox 360, the company now has "all the franchises" and "the best games."

"The Metal Gear Solid franchise was the last franchise that we were really truly looking to get on board," he said

"We've got the best games and we've got all the franchises that might have started their lives on other consoles coming to the 360."

The story is too old to be commented.

Both of the HD systems have a bunch of solid games. Sony definitely outweighs MS in terms of the volume of console exclusive franchises though; that won't appear on PC or anywhere else.

I guess I'm waiting for the Tokyo Game Show for MS to announce their JRPGs (I skipped Star Ocean as the character designs/ voices looked annoying, but will be picking up Magna Carta 2 and the 99 Nights sequel). Unless they've just given up on Japan at this point. I'm curious to see how Square Enix behaves at Sony's conference today - that will be very telling.

Chris3994995d ago (Edited 4995d ago )

Both systems have their merits and desirable exclusives. Putting your fingers in your ears and screaming "la-la-la-la" won't make any of Sony's top tier games disappear, nor will it lessen their quality.

My favorite games this gen: Lost Odyssey, Tales of Vesperia, Demon's Souls, Valkyria Chronicles (yes, I have a JRPG addiction), Heavenly Sword, Folklore, Kingdom Under Fire (sure it wasn't great, but it was fun hack and slash).

Do you notice anything? Those games are from different platforms. I'm not some sort of neutral gaming saint, I definitely prefer the PS3, but I am also a gamer and a consumer and I wanted to play some of the titles that the 360 offered. I can see the VALUE in another system, even though I have a preference.

You can't see the value in anything aside from your own opinion. How much of the world you must miss out on - video games aside - due to your own shortsightedness.

Chuvanes4995d ago

well i do agree with chris and foxgod stfu

decapitator4995d ago (Edited 4995d ago )

Opinions are like @ssholes, everyone has got them. Kind Microsoft sir, I respectfully disagree with you but agree 360 and PS3 have some great games.

Also I have a capable gaming PC...get where am going with this ?

All Time Greatness4995d ago (Edited 4995d ago )

Decapitator, what is Xbox 360 missing in its library that gamers actually care for?

Got all the big JRPG's.

Got all the biggest shooters.

Got all the PS2 franchises....everything.

Got all the WRPG's.

What's left out there that Xbox 360 doesn't have and needs to make it's library complete?

Why o why4995d ago (Edited 4995d ago )

If that was the case.................WTF happened to all the games in 09

SOME xbox fans (and i use that term loosely) only brag about titles once they appear on their platform. Before these points its the same old *insert bs downplay* Lets face it sony may be catching up in units but they are well ahead when it comes to innovation, library diversity and franchises. Surely we must look at MS's ability to actually create something.......

Shadow Flare4995d ago

Think of this:

If you want MGS Rising, you can get MGS Rising and Metal Gear Solid 4 for ps3. And be able to play MGS 1,2 and 3.

If you want Final Fantasy XIII, you can get Final Fantasy XIII and Versus on ps3

All on 1 bluray disc.

Xbox 360 doesn't offer that. And it will never get the excellent first party sony games like god of war 3, trico, uncharted 2 and gran turismo 5

gaffyh4995d ago

@1.5 - GOW3, GT5, Uncharted 2, Ratchet & Clank, Team ICO, SOCOM, MAG, Syphon Filter, Resistance, Jak & Daxter, FFvsXII, Agito XIII, Parasite Eve 3, Twisted Metal, Killzone, Motorstorm, Wipeout, PixelJunk, Wardevil, MGS, LBP, WKC, Demon's Souls, Quantum Theory, inFAMOUS and a lot lot more that MS still has to compete with. All these are games that could be coming for Sony, and most of them are.

Face it guys Sony has most of their bases covered, MS are still playing catch up when it comes to the variety of games available on their system.

ChampIDC4995d ago

I wish more gamers had your mindset. Every system has its merits, and there's no reason to hate on the other just because you have a preference. Some people could learn a thing or two from you. Bubs up.

Megaton4995d ago

I get that they're just mouthing off to pump themselves up, and it's their right, this is a PR storm after all, but come on. They've rounded up just about all the big 3rd party franchises, but "all the best games"? Until you buy out Sony and absorb all their first party studios, you're missing quite a lot of the best games and franchises.

Strange4995d ago

I dislike Microsoft due to their company ethics.
Google it if you aren't familiar with them.
That is all.

The Master Chief4995d ago

Gaffy did you even read the question or just immediately type every PS3 game you could think of because PS3 games aren't popular and your defensive PS3 fanboy.

This was the question:

"What's left out there that Xbox 360 doesn't have and needs to make it's library *complete*?"

You think it needs the few PS3 Exclusive Sony first party games there are....only 3 that are AAA that you can't get on Xbox 360....to make its gaming library complete?

Ha! It doesn't mate.

Xbox 360 is the console with 300 more games to choose from.

KKanjiAnkh4995d ago (Edited 4995d ago )

Ha ha ha

Rare, really keep that garbage, only fools hold out for trash, oh oh I want a new Killer instinct, pure trash. Were the H3!!, is the platformers, RPG's, Adventure

I didn't know the 360 had Kingdom Hearts, and Persona, and a lot of $hit I don't need to mention, that is a huge shocker.

This is why I luv kids in the phantasy zone, Microsoft can't even touch Nintendo's games, get over it.

@Chief

Please grace us w/that awe inspiring list of 300 games, cause I see that list everyday, and I gotta say you got a long way to go.

@Mega

That's exactly what people fail to realise.

MegaMohsi4995d ago (Edited 4995d ago )

It's funny how MS wasn't saying anything when they got MGS 2 on the original Xbox which was an actual Metal Gear Solid game but now that they have the new "Metal Gear" game this gen they have to show it off to the world as if they took something from Sony.
MGS 1- PS1/PC
MGS Twin Snakes(remake of 1)- GC
MGS 2- PS2
MGS 2 Substance- Xbox/PC/PS2

The only MGS exclusive to Sony are 3 and 4, the others have appeared on other platforms INCLUDING MS. Honestly all sides have become ridiculous fan boys, Sony, MS, Nintendo, it's getting really silly and stupid, "We're the best this, we're the best that" While we're on topic, FF and DMC games have appeared on PC as well, which are MS platforms and the 360 is just an extension of the PC platform, so in reality the only thing MS took was FF13.

Jaces4995d ago

They got a spin-off...but whatever makes them happy.

CrazzyMan4995d ago

Come on, just some spin-off, which also is multi.

MGS4 - one of the BEST, really BEST game this gen - and it`s EXCLUSIVE to PS3.

AND PC+PS3 owners have BEST games from both worlds. =)

solidt124995d ago

Agreed, If you want to play all of the latest and greatest games you still need a PS3 and Xbox360, but Microsoft rep is way off, PS3 has way more Exclusive franchises that are incredible.

Now Playing InFamous...

decapitator4995d ago

It doesn't have Uncharted, GOW and Ratchet. Am a huge platformer person. If it managed to get those, then you'd have a point.

WonderboyIII4995d ago

I am started to get sick of the hate. Really. If not for XBOX, competition would not exist and PS3 would have not had the need to innovate more and push its developers. It is MS, no Nintendo that is playing that exact role. This is why gamers are in for a treat. Gaming is no complete with an Xbox alone. Gaming is not complete with a Wii alone or a PS3 alone. I am a complete gamer. I play mario and zelda, Uncharted 2 and Gears of War. They are all great games. They are all great platforms. To be a complete gamer, you will need the 3 consoles. If you are poor then you have an excuse, but please appreciate the other platforms. If you are just blind and full of hate, than maybe you should find another hobby?

Its a great time to be still a gamer.

Information Minister4995d ago

That's an understatement buddy!

ultimolu4995d ago (Edited 4995d ago )

So...what the hell is the PS3, a pile of elephant dung?

I could have sworn the PS3 also has some of the best games I've ever seen. Just count on Microsoft to jump around like little children at a frat party.

I cannot stand this company and their backwards talk. I really can't.

cmrbe4995d ago

have these franchise since the PS1 era while continue to add more great franchise through past and present gens.

What MS fail to see is that they are boasting about equaling the PS1 by having these franchise that Sony have since they entered the market. Don Matrick said it best at the MS conference. Now the xbox is complete like it wasnt complete before.

This really shows how insecure MS really is and indirectly showed how much they want to be like Sony. I cant blame them. Its playstation afterall.

Ever since Sony entered the market they have develop their own iconic franchise. Too many to name them. MS is stuck with the past while Sony is looking to the future. Sad really. The Playstation brand made FF, GTA and MGS where they were.

As for best games. Anyone with half a brain knows that the best games are on the PS3.

lets brag that we have metal gear

at least sony are bigger contributors to console gaming than microsoft has been ever
you take our exclusives because otherwise your show would suck
lets get a playstation brand thats all we need
next we will see ratchet ,crash bandicoot, and mario on 360 -_-

SaberEdge4994d ago

Guys, most of you are Playstation fanboys so it is no surprise why you take the stance you do, but I think it is kind of silly.

It goes without saying that the 360 is never going to have any of the Nintendo or Sony first party exclusives, but as far as any significant 3rd party franchise that is even possible of coming over to the 360, Microsoft have done a very good job of making those games available for their customers. I agree with Microsoft in that they have now got pretty much every important 3rd party franchise on their console.

You guys act like that is a bad thing. Do you really think a console maker should not try to get every good 3rd party franchise to come over to their console so that their customers can enjoy those games? Is that what you are claiming?

If Sony wanted those games to be exclusive to their console so that only their customers could play those games, they should have bought the development studio or at least entered into a contract securing that franchise as an exclusive. Historical precedent doesn't guarantee you anything. Just because MGS happened to see a majority of its releases on Playstation consoles in the past gives Sony no implied right to exclusivity. Konami is an independent developer and they are going to go where it makes most sense for them.

Microsoft is only doing what any good console maker does, and that is getting as many high quality games on their system as possible. When Sony does it (see Final Fantasy XIV, Rockstar's Agent, etc.) you guys completely overlook it and don't bat an eye. It is really absurd the kind of double standards many of you have who frequent this site.

Jecht4994d ago

What is the 360 missing? How about QUALITY? You have all the biggest JRPG's? How many of them were good? You have all the biggest shooters? How many of them were unique? Got all the PS2 franchises? Nope, there are too many, but guess what? I have a PS2 so I already have all the franchises. Got all the WRPG's? Good, you can have them. Meanwhile, us "PS3 fanboys" (whatever) will be over here playing NEW franchises of QUALITY that will be established for generations to come.

RememberThe3574994d ago

Wow that is a dumb ass statement. GT? Nope. GoW? Nope. R&C? Nope. Zelda? Nope.

There are a ton of franchises that MS will never have. If you want the best games from the best franchises, you need to pick up all of the consoles and a PC. Plain and simple.

Christopher4994d ago

Thank heaven this type of post was the first on the page. Usually when I say something similar, it's probably not as elegant but it's also on the second or third page. At least now people are going to see it.

For me? Uncharted 2, Mass Effect 2, Dragon Age, Alpha Protocol, Alan Wake, Star Wars the Old Republic, DC Universe Online, God of War 3, Champions Online, and similar Western RPG/MMO games.

menoyou4994d ago

If it were Sony saying this I would probably agree because most of Microsoft's games are mostly multiplatform. But Microsoft saying this is just silly.

ProperFunked4994d ago

so your saying the MGS franchise wasn't excellent? is that what your implying, i have to disagree.

DavidMacDougall4995d ago (Edited 4995d ago )

Uncharted, GT, Killzone, Socom, God Of War, Motorstorm, Ratchet And Clank, Resistance and thats just off the top of my head which have got more than 1 game to there name, but i suppose if i was getting the money he is i'd say anything to.

Foxgod4995d ago (Edited 4995d ago )

Alan Wake, Halo, Gears of War, Banjo, Fable, Forza, Blue dragon, Dead or alive, splinter cell, lost planet 2, magna carta 2, just from the top of my head.

Looks like MS got plenty of franchises.

ZEEBO4LIFESTFU4995d ago

resistane, socom rac keep on the ps3 please

table4995d ago (Edited 4995d ago )

well the resistance series is better than halo. Both are great but halo has the name so people just say that it's better regardless of logic.

Foxgod: Halo1 got a name because it was a great game that paved the way for FPS on consoles. Halo2 and Halo3 actually have worse gameplay and have been a step backwards from Halo1. Resistance Fall of Man was so much better than Halo3 thats the point I'm getting at. It had better graphics and more up to date and better gameplay mechanics and was just an all round better game. Resistance doesn't have a big name because it did nothing groundbreaking but its still a fantastic series.

ODST looks the same old yet again. Nothing in that video of ODST impressed me it looked very ordinary and you can't deny that. Yet, I bet it will get fantastic reviews for being Halo...

Foxgod4995d ago

Then you explain to me why Resistance still got no name, even after 2 games.

It took Halo only 1 title to get the name.
You dont make name by accident you know.

Ofcourse your argument will be that xbox owners are idiots, or something along that line.

GoldenAge4995d ago

So David decides to point out that Sony has it's own set of franchises that only they own, he never mentions Microsoft or Xbox 360, not a single 360 doesn't have franchise line from David, but Foxgod decides to name all the franchises exclusive to the 360 from the top of his head...

So what was the point Foxgod it wasn't like he was comparing

DavidMacDougall4995d ago (Edited 4995d ago )

Does Alan Wake count? I was only counting games that have more than one using the same name.

So i could count Imfamous, Heavy Rain, Little Big Planet, Warhawk, Wipeout, MAG, Demon's Souls, Quantum Theory, Siren: Blood Curse, Project Trico, etc. I said Wipeout cause it used to be on disc back in the PS2 days but i just cant bothered naming all the PSN games too, i'd be here all day.

@Deep Obsidian - My point is that this "John Schappert" guy is just doing what the rest of the Microsoft workforce do and that is PR. The list was just to point out how wrong this statement is ".... all the franchises on Xbox 360...". They are nowhere near getting everything on XBOX and Sonys show is today so they are going to be getting even further behide before the days over.

GoldenAge4995d ago

It was Foxgod's comments that I was asking about, an example of what his comment was like

PS3 Owner getting WKC: "Yes I finally have a JRPG"
Xbox 360 Owner sees this: "Well we've got Lost Odyssey, Blue Dragon and Magna Carta 2"

DavidMacDougall4995d ago

Yeah i just done the most known ones, there is just to many

Foxgod4995d ago (Edited 4995d ago )

Let me disagree with that because:

A: i can make a longer list with all 360 exclusives combined.
B: you just listed a load of nobody games and psn titles.

NotSoSilentBob4995d ago

You do Realize that No matter how many 360 exclusives you list even Xbox Exclusives, The Ps3 can play the Most exclusive games ever made. Since their is Ps1 games Ps2(not all units), so i suggest you stop running your mouth about "exclusives", cause the majority of 360 games can be found on Computer so they ARE NOT exclusive.

RememberThe3574994d ago

Like always, you missed the point entirely.

The point is that there are a large number of high quality franchises and games that are not on the 360.

So, they don't have all of the best games or all of the franchises. That is fact.

I think some people mistake exclusive game for exclusive franchise.

talltony4995d ago

Sony will undoubtly have an exclusive kojima game as well as what was announced yesterday for xbox 360. Sony has so many games that you just cant play on any other console no matter what this guy says. So many first party and second party devs that it would just be carzy to say sony lost anything. You Bots dont realize that getting a few once sony exclusive games doesnt mean anything! Sony is always innovating and they dont have the biggest E3 floor space for no reason! You bots will all be eating your words later I guarentee it!

Dimitri4995d ago

XBOX 360 fanboys will finally have a friend called Milo. Its for people with NO LIFE and NO REAL LIFE friends.

Microsoft is far away from having the best games on the XBOX 360.

skatezero2464995d ago

lol your the pathetic one, Uncharted, God of war, and MAG say hello these three games I would take over anything the xbox has to offer

Montreafart4995d ago

Do you know why the bots are so quiet on Alan wake, fellow sony soldiers.

Its because the only game they hyped year after year in every KZ2 and Uncharted thread, was Alan poopie Wake. And Alan failed. Boy, what a failure it was.

Trust me, if Alan wake delivered yesterday, the fking bots would be all over N4G right now, BRAGGING about how Alan wake looks superior to all PS3 exclusives (pfff as if thats possible).

But of course, we have all seen it coming. PS3 is the most powerful hardware out there and only PS3 can deliver stunningly beautiful games like Killzone 2, Uncharted, God of war and many many more.

yah i think ur right even shane kim .. in one of the interviews said that their main goal this time around was to even the playing field ... by makeing the 3rd party of other platforms come over to xbox... and now that grand theft auto, resident evil, final fantasy, metal gear and tekken have moved over all the major 3rd party exclusives have gone multiplat .. its time to focus on some 1st party ip's...

we've already seen enough articles on n4g on about the callibre of tallent microsofts game studio is aquiring ... they need to pump some first party games out now ...

and i'm guessing during this week we'll definitely see some from rare

Bibto4995d ago (Edited 4995d ago )

That's one thing that annoyed me from the MS conference. They kept repeating best this and best that. Isn't that essentially a form of brain washing? Keep repeating something until people start to believe it, even though it might not be true.

jkhan4995d ago

I agree with you on that. It was a bit annoying. The guy from Turn10 was really annoying when he said "The definitive racing game of this generation" like 15 times during his 5 min speech. i mean i love Forza 2, I bought day 1 and i am definitely loving what they are doing with Forza 3 but I think it's the gamers who should be deciding whether the game is the definitive racing game or not and not the developers bragging about there game.

SL1M DADDY4995d ago

Brain washing is the science of repeating a lie enough times that folks around you will soon come to believe that the lie is the truth. In the end, it's all relative. The console that has the most games YOU personally like to play is the one console that has the BEST games. Don't let some corporate butt-monger tell you what the best content is, make that decision for yourself.

Bibto4995d ago

Yep. The Turn10 guy was a bit annoying. Unless he has seen everything that the competition has to offer, his declaration of definitive racing game seems a bit mature.

I don't mind if devs are confident about their games, but there is a thin line between confidence and arrogance. Ultimately the gamers will decide what is best, not the devs.

Foxgod4995d ago

YEah, rememeber when sony said everyoen would buy the ps3, no matter what price it has, and even with no games on it ?

MS got the right to claim they got the best, they sell the most games, the sell the most consoles, and they down to earth got the most exclusives as well.

They didnt even mention games like venetica, dead island, mass effect 2, ABP, magnacarta 2, Lost planet 2, prey 2, warhound.....

ShabzS4995d ago (Edited 4995d ago )

when he said forza 2 was the most definitive racing game this gen he is backedup with some solid reviews from metacritic a 92 i think... the game was critically and commercially well recieved .. so he and his team have earned the right to say that their forza 2 was the most definitve racing game this gen..

solidjun54995d ago (Edited 4995d ago )

I know guys like FOX and Omega will point to metacritic as their source to back up their opinion that forza is better, but that's just them. Anyway, I like what they showed with Forza 3 but I don't think Forza 2 was at the time the definitive racer of this generation.

And Fox, you keep repeating yourself about best games this and best games that. It's really subjectivity my rabid friend. 360 has great games but I don't think it's the best. However, I won't force that opinion down anyone's throat.

I do however agree that SONY was arrogant with that statement in the PAST (emphasis added). But key word here is PAST. Don't you think they are more humble? Who am I kidding, I'm talking to you. In your eyes, SONY's past statements insulted you to your very essence.

I'm glad it's being well received commercially and critically but I don't like to use METACRITIC as a basis for that homie.

EDIT:
CHAMP: I agree. I wanted to say that but you hit it with so many words. +1

ChampIDC4995d ago

I agree. I hate hearing any company say something they make is the best. They'd be better off letting the product speak for itself.

First off, two wrongs do not make a right. Just because Sony played the role of the douche bag back then doesn't mean it's OK that MS or any developer of MS games does the same. Somebody needs to be the better man/woman and this person passed up that opportunity.

Secondly, MS does not sell the most consoles. They sell the least in terms of world wide sales. Only difference is, they started selling them a year early. Take that lead away and they would be a touch under Sony since Sony sells more consoles per month worldwide. Disagree with that and you are a simpleton with no concrete knowledge of the real facts.

Oh, and no, they do not have the most exclusives. That yet again is a fanboy lie. Try again little buddy.

doG_beLIEfs4995d ago (Edited 4995d ago )

"YEah, remember when Sony said everyone would buy the ps3, no matter what price it has, and even with no games on it ?"

What Sony or rather David Reeves actually said...

"We have built up a certain brand equity over time since the launch of Playstation in 1995 and PS2 in 2000 that the first five million are going to buy it, whatever it is, even [if] it didn't have games," he told the site.

Yes it is a bit of a pompous statement, but at the time he was probably right. Sony has been humbled and in my opinion it was the BEST thing that could happen to them for their future success and our gaming happiness.

MS is now starting to show too much we are the best attitude without dominating the videogame market for 12+ years like Sony did. So, who is the bigger jackazz? Sony when they had the proof to back it up or MS when they have nothing to back it up?

I love what MS did yesterday, I really like the competition they bring to Sony. Sony has to work harder to get more market share and MS has to work harder to get more market share....that means for us, we get better games and better services than we would if Sony or MS dominated the market like Sony did for 2 generations.

I do remember in the days b4 the 360 launch an MS rep. stated something along the lines of "Sony could sell a rock with the PS logo on it and millions would buy it."

MS has come a long way, and now it is Sony's turn to wow us today. I think they will and after Sony's conference the internets (Dubya) will be ablaze with stories about Sony's awesome presentation.

We will see.

I am just loving this E3 like no other so far.

As for Nintendo? I DON'T GIVE A FRACK

You have a solid point there. That's exactly what it is. I'm all for competition but this is going too far. But of course someone will say 'But if Sony did blah, blah, blah, I would approve of it!111'

No I wouldn't.

Just show your stuff and make gamers happy. That's it.
