Microsoft’s Yusuf Mehdi seems confident in Xbox One’s sales prospects and has said that they will win the long run in a Q&A with a Spanish paper. (Translated)
He talked about Xbox One’s exclusive titles and also revealed that they don’t care about winning a show because the real test will be the consumer.
“We unveiled 20 titles for Xbox One, of which 17 are exclusive to this console. I do not think Sony can say the same. What I hear is that before launching we are better positioned, with a complete value proposition,” he said.
“With the installed Skype voice service and Kinect motion sensor included. No point in winning a show, because the test will be the consumer. In the long run our console will win.”
The pre-order reports across various reports are showing that PS4 is actually beating Xbox One and consumers seem to be attracted to Sony’s console due to the lower price better policies.
Microsoft has the advantage of a massive advertising budget but will that be enough to sway consumers? Only time will tell. The consoles will be released later this year.
