Microsoft's Thompson: Our best Xmas line-up ever - MCV's interview

In an interview with MCV, Microsoft's senior regional director for the Northern Europe Entertainment and Devices Division Neil Thompson has said that his company's upcoming Q4 software offering is the best he has ever worked with.

"You never really know what's going to happen in Q4, but I've worked on Xbox since we started the project and this is probably the best Christmas line-up we've ever had from a content perspective," he stated.

"There's a whole range of product coming – the brightest thing for us this year is the breadth of range and the extension of some of our more family-based products." Thompson went on the state that he believes Xbox 360 has been the "innovative force in terms of what a next generation console should look like".

MS is gonna pull further ahead this Xmas. A lot further ahead.

Or I'll eat my shoe.

<ed.> Yea all consoles will sell. But 360 is going to do a lot better than Ps3 this Xmas, IMO. I could be totally wrong. But it's just my opinion.

I hope you are wearing a tasty shoe ^^ heh I'm just fooling. No Christmas is really good for all consoles. Sure one system will always sell more than the other but really this time period is when all the consoles and game makers see their best sales.

you should never bet with your health on the line...i hear shoe leather is toxic...

but if he fries it properly and garnishes with right mixtures, he might be able to eat it without problem.

Yep. 360 will sell like boobs and beer.
This christmas season will be big for all consoles but 360 might have the biggest sales in the end. We shall see.

"It is important for us to still offer loyal Xbox customers exactly what they want – so it is important that Halo 3 has just arrived and GTA is coming."

Did he not get the memo that GTA has been delayed out of the christmas schedule?
