Phil Spencer: Xbox fans Will Have a Fun 2015; Praises PSX Event and Talks About Sony SFV Deal

xbox one high res screenshot 5

Microsoft was missing from The Game Awards 2014 event where Sony had a small presence and teased some games. However, Sony’s own event–PlayStation Experience–had a lot of reveals including an announcement that Street Fighter 5 will be console exclusive to the PS4.

Street Fighter 5 PS4/PC exclusivity hasn’t gone down too well with some Xbox fans but Phil Spencer, Xbox boss, has revealed that business deals do happen and since they already had a 1st party franchise in the genre, he didn’t think it was wise for them to do the same.

He also praised the PlayStation Experience event and said that he watched it and thought it was “well done”. He also feels really good about 2015 for Xbox. He also believes that 2015 will be fun year for Xbox fans.

Phil Spencer is a likable guy and him getting the top post shows the confidence Microsoft has in him as well. Since the Xbox One is looking to win the November NPDs due to all the price cut and game deals, it might just be the boost Microsoft requires to compete even harder with Sony.

    “Playstation are killing it….bought the wrong one” -IDB

    HAHAHAHAH WHAT!?!?! Apparently he didn’t watch the same show I did. Other than UC4…it was basically mulit-plats and reason why you DON’T need a PS4

    • Dennis Crosby

      I recommend you get buy it one day. Great exclusives will be on both consoles thought out the generation some games might even surprise you

      • corvusmd

        I’ve had a PS4 since inFamous. I’ve been a PS fan since day one of PS1….it’s actually VERY frustrating to me that Sony has dropped the ball so much.

        • Barry Harden

          A lying sack of sh!t. No wonder you’re still around like a skid mark on a toilet bowl.

          • You are flat out wrong

            That’s corvusmd for you. Nasty little shill who needs to be squashed.

            Hey, sorry bout last night. B-hole O.K? I haven’t spilled that much seed into a unquivering willing colon since… well…our last “game date”. See ya soon. Keep on the sony luv hun. 8===> ~ ~ ~ ~ 0:

          • You are flat out wrong

            Thanks for the offer, Jah Fou, but I’m not interested. :^)

          • john smith

            A shill calling someone else a shill go figure.

          • corvusmd

            I love how whenever someone uses logic and reality to say something even remotely negative about Sony…you get all butt hurt, insecure and scared and immediately go into attack mode…it doesn’t make you look right….it makes ME look right. Your insecurity is giving you away that you know that I’m right….keep going…

          • Revolver Ocelot

            Logic and reality? You haven’t done that since you first shit out words onto Disqus. The peak of your desperate shilling was that “hours played” guff.

            Three times as many first party exclusives on the PS4 than the Shitbox next year. Longer pretty tragic for you.

          • john smith

            Angry fanboy alert.

          • corvusmd

            Not lying at all

    • GameDev345

      Blood borne, Tearaway, Drawn to Death, SFV, The Order 1886, MLB 15, Until Dawn and Cory Barlog announcing new God of War after PSX. Yeah it was only Uncharted 4

      Lets not forget other Sony first party studios and their numerous projects

      Even Nintendo showed up big with Star Fox and Zelda

      Xbox One has some good games but lets not pretend it is wasnt lagging this weekend or it doesnt look bleak in 2015 apart from summer

      Phil Spencer is doing a great job too and the only why I would attempt getting a One if Nintendo doesnt out show them at next years E3

      I suggest you take Dennis Crosby’s advice and stop being a pathetic fanboy or you will miss out on some great games

      • corvusmd

        I saw all those games as well….the whole point is that next year looks to be the best gaming year in my 25+ years of gaming…however only 1 PS exclusive has made it onto my list of 25+gamesI HAVE to play….everything else is multi-plat or X1/Wii U exclusive. Of everything they showed at this show…UC4 was the only game that looked great and was exclusive. Everything else was multi-plat or won’t make the cut with all the other amazing games coming out next year….yeah it WAS only UC4

        • GameDev345

          Then make it clear, it was only UC4 that you liked as the exclusive, in reality without all the fanboyism salt. The PS4 showed many exclusives and has more exclusives than the Xbox One. The NIntendo has more exclusives and out showed MS this weekend also

          • HalfBlackCanuck

            Just remember more exclusives doesn’t always mean better exclusives.
            And by better I mean it’s at least 80% preferential, 20% everything else.

          • GameDev345

            Well until you play those exclusives you cant decide on their quality so as of now we are looking at quantity

            As for preference, I definitely agree, but to claim the PSX was multiplats then covering up with I only liked one after your comment was extinguished is ridiculous

          • HalfBlackCanuck

            At first I thought you meant that I made a multiplat comment and was very confused.
            I still disagree with your initial response though. Nintendo is, arguably, all exclusives. Many people still don’t justify a purchase. Number doesn’t matter if it’s not what you want to play.
            I never said anything about the games shown so far, I’m just stating that quality trump quantity and that quality is largely subjective.
            IMO if every announced exclusive on both consoles is a 10/10 I might still like more games on the console that has less exclusives. That, in the end, is all that matters.
            (all that said, people have to get out of the “that game looks like it sucks” vernacular and move to the “I have no interest in that game” mindset. Although, forums would basically only be tech support if that happened)

          • GameDev345

            Nintendo is all exclusives because they have great first party studios and rubbish third party support, doesnt mean they didnt just outshow MS this weekend

            As for 10/10 exclusives for everything, thats just exaggeration as quality of a game is based off preference as you said yourself

            I never said you cant like the console with the less exclusives, as you have repeated in another way here, preference

            But I am discussing showing numbers here, games coming out, the more games a console has, the more likely quality and variety you will get and MS looks bleak in 2015, that can easily change at E3 or with even earlier announcements

          • HalfBlackCanuck

            I’m not implying Nintendo didn’t outshine Xbox at all. And even their third party stuff ends up being exclusive-wish because of the development difference.
            The 10/10 this was just to highlight that scores don’t matter in the end. If you find it fun, its fun. If you don’t, it’s not a game for you to buy. Despite what the consensus is.
            Yes, MS needs to show more. I wish there was a clear answer for the lack of indie support on Xbox (they way that MS talks versus the way some Indies talk I just do think everyone is being honest). MS also needs some major Japanese support (development). Those are the two areas where Sony kills them constantly, The indie thing would be perception over anything else. The Japan thing will likely never happen, but I dream.
            I say it every chance I get: MS needs to buy Sega. They have IP. Buy Sega, put money into letting them do games like the Dreamcast days (as in, take hella chances on quirky stuff)

          • john smith

            I couldn’t care less for indies big budget games are the reason why I buy a console.

          • GotNews4Ya

            The Probability of making a good game goes up with the attempts though, correct?

            Also… Let’s not act like Sony doesn’t have some of the most talented first party studios in the industry.. Infact Sony can afford to have a few ones that are mediocre.. Hell Sony has more Mediocre 1st party studios than Microsoft has Studios Total.. and there is WAY More Amazing Studios than there are Mediocre ones..

          • Somerandomperson

            “Better” is so vague -_-”

          • corvusmd

            Nothing fanboy about it…unless you’re implying that I’ve been a PS fan since day one and I’m very disappointed in their quick decay…MORE exclusives doesn’t mean BETTER exclusives….

          • GameDev345

            You are just repeating what HalfBlackCanuck said and I responded to that

            “unless you’re implying that I’ve been a PS fan since day one and I’m very disappointed in their quick decay”

            quick decay? Is that why the PS4 is outselling the Xbox One and WII U? Is that why the PS4 has more exclusives than the Xbox One? Yeah they are going through a quick decay alright

            Look fanboy or not, I suggest you try out games on all systems.

          • corvusmd

            I didn’t see what they said…so I repeated nothing. Sales do NOT mean quality….I’d say the fact that X1 gamers buy more games per Xbox and spend more than twice the amount of hours playing games says that X1 gamers are having more fun….OUCH, you have NO response for that one.

            I am by no means a fanboy…it’s why I get all the systems…I’m just disappointed that PS4/Sony seem content on riding the hype and doing nothing to earn it…just milk the fans for their money based on hype. X1 is working hard right now and earning their fans.

          • john smith

            The hypocrisy in these comment sections makes me sick. Fanboys calling other people fanboys, people should think first before they type such stupidity. Like a dumb person with a low IQ calling out somebody else for being dumb.

          • corvusmd

            Where did your comment about “having a response go”? I got the email and tried to hurry to get here to make you look stupid as fast as I could but when I got to the page it was gone….

            Either way…if you deleted it cause you found the answer…good….if someone else deleted it for you….Uh it was Sony and MS themselves that published it….in their Anniversary stats.

          • Gority

            Yeah xb1 owners have a higher attach rate. They gave away multiple free games pretty much September.

          • corvusmd

            Digital games aren’t counted in the stats

          • Gority

            A lot of the games they gave away were not digital…

          • GameDev345

            What comment? Now you are looking for imaginary responses? LOL

            god you are desperate to find something that is not there

            I never deleted anything, I dont need to delete anything cause your points are just too easy to counter

          • GotNews4Ya

            Microsoft didn’t even show up to the Awards this weekend.. I am pretty sure they didn’t announce anything..

        • TristanPR77

          Pathetic fanboy. PS4 is dominating weather you like it or not.

          • corvusmd

            I HAVE A PS4!!!!!! Stop being so quick to judge just because YOU see things through fanboy goggles. PS4 has the sales lead YES, but every other stat shows X1 being the better place to play games…get over it.

          • chrisredfield31

            Dude nobody cares whether you have a PS4 or not. You’re clearly an X1 fanboy and EVERYTHING you say, on EVERY website following N4G articles shows it.

          • GotNews4Ya

            “Xbox One is the Better Place to Play Games” – This is YOUR Opinion. It is not a fact. My opinion differs from yours.. intact my Xbox One rarely turns on.. I even bought Sunset Overdrive.. and I couldn’t get myself to get past the introductory section.. I was that turned off by it.. I keep telling myself I am going to go back and play it.. But it will be awhile.. right now I am investing all my time in Dragon Age: Inquisition on the PS4.. which is an absolute monster of a game.. 60+ hrs in already. Then comes Far Cry 4.. and by the time I get caught up.. the Witcher 3 will be out! lol.

          • corvusmd

            Actually no it’s based on the stats that MS and Sony released in their anniversary where X1 owners played twice the amount of hours of games….so yes it’s my opinion as well, but its supported by facts like hours played and games attach ratio

          • GotNews4Ya

            You cannot use stats to prove your opinion.. Sorry, it doesn’t work that way.. It is obviously Microsoft’s opinion, who would have guessed that Microsoft would tout stats about Hrs played.. and attachment rate.. but the truth really is.. Which one is selling better despite anything else? The one people really… REALLY want to play..

          • Somerandomperson

            How is XB-one a better place? Even the 360 is better atm.

          • http://www.Kwamejoseph.com/ ProPaperPusher

            II have a PS4 ProPaperPusher

            I have tons to play currently see no reason to buy a Xbox One. Don’t really know what stats you are using because currently at this moment PS4 has a more diverse library of games and the stats provides that.

          • spid3r6

            All first party games this year where lackluster… Xbox One games have been nothing short of incredible!

          • Tha Truth

            Nobody thinks the Xbox is the best place to play games you ignorant fucking retard, if people thought that they would go out and buy one, sales prove that they don’t. The public speak with their wallets and NOBODY is spending money on a shit console like the Xbox, which is why it’s dead last in sales.

        • SiliconNooB

          Your salt really is most tasty!

          • corvusmd

            Hahaha No salt at all…if you see it that way, it’s cause it’s how you are looking at it. If I’m salty at all it’s at Sony for throwing away a gift that MS gave them at E3 2013 and are just riding the hype with no effort and decaying right before our eyes.

      • coip

        “Blood borne, Tearaway, Drawn to Death, SFV, The Order 1886, MLB 15, Until Dawn, Cory Barlog, God of War, Uncharted 4”

        This is why I have no desire to own a PS4. None of those games interest me, at all. Maybe Street Fighter, if Xbox One didn’t already have a better fighting game in Killer Instinct, but other than that, it’s a big yawn. I see PlayStation owners trot out that list all the time and I think, “Am I supposed to like those games because they seem quite boring?” I don’t know what’s wrong with me, but I think that list is weak.

        • GameDev345

          Thats your opinion

          But those games are one of the reason why the PS4 is selling better than the Xbox One, better amount of games and better first party studios with many game brands to announce, not just those

          We all have preferences, yours doesnt suit the PS4 games and thats fine

          • corvusmd

            Uh….no….PS4 is selling better because it’s STILL in 4xs the countries…esp in Europe, it was $100 cheaper for 8 months, and they are still riding the hype that MS handed them when they shot themselves in the foot at E3 2013. X1 has a higher games attach ratio and as of their anniversary PS4 owners had played games 1 billion hours online where as X1 owners had played 2 billion hours while connected to the internet…I think that’s showing that most of the casuals gravitated towards PS4….it’s this gens “wii”. It also strongly implies that of gamers that own both, they spend more time on X1.

            Putting to rest that sales equals quality.

          • andy

            Yes because all the moms and early 20s females are running out to buy PS4s. Have you any idea the people that bought the Wii since its day one launch??? Did you work or even know ANYBODY that worked in game retail when the Wii launched???

            And Microsoft shot themselves in the foot on May 21st 2013 at the worse games console reveal in history. It WAS NOT E3 2013, meaning you have no idea what you are talking about.

          • jb227

            If you are assuming that casuals play offline then I think your view is a bit skewed. Most casuals that I know of play games like CoD & Madden online, fans of all genres of gaming are what I’d call the hardcore & a fair few of those won’t be logged w/ online hours. The other territories are insignificant & even if MS were in all of the same markets, the picture would be the same. Your analysis & the way you are trying to “prove” that PS4 is for casuals is completely flawed. Seems to me what has actually happened is that a lot of 360 users wanted to try something new this gen after they saw all of the great experiences available exclusively on Sony’s machine. The casual crowd is all on mobile these days, that’s where the Wii’s audience went, not the PS4

          • corvusmd

            I think you’re doing more to prove my point….I’m not really sure what you are trying to say. I agree that most casuals play online..and at the time that the stats came out, 7.9 mill of the 10.5 million gamers that had a PS4 had PS+….probably about the same percentage of X1 gamers that have XBL…I honestly don’t have that stat, but even if every X1 gamer is online in the stat…the number of offline PS4 gamers doesn’t make enough difference to make up 1 billion extra hours of gameplay…esp when you consider the games that are geared towards offline.

            Also of note, it’s just counting gamers that are connected to the net AT ALL so they can get firmware, update stats and such….when they do that, the data transfers to Sony…which is how they got the numbers.

            Edit: Oh and the thing about not being in all the same countries….I get that that ALONE won’t make the difference….but it IS a supplemental factor.

          • GameDev345

            LOL those excuses. MS has released in their most important markets, UK and rest of Europe, USA (their main ground), and there are even in China where Sony has not released, yet the PS4 is beating the Xbox One in sales

            MS has cut our kinect, lowered prices to be very tempting, offered ,massive low bundle prices, yet the PS4 is still beating it in sales

            PS4 is riding on the hype that it is actually more powerful than the Xone but if the PS4 is still riding on the E3 hype then MS marketing are doing a terrible job (which they arent) the E3 hype faded long ago with more people buying XOnes, yet the PS4 is say again “beating it in sales”

            Again pulling 1 billion, 2 billion stats out of nowhere,

            “I think that’s showing that most of the casuals gravitated towards PS4….it’s this gens “wii”. It also strongly implies that of gamers that own both”

            Of course casuals moved to PS4, it appeals to everyone, hardcore gamers, kids, casuals, indie gamers, JRPGs It has more variety of games than the Xbox One to show off. You are saying it like MS wont want to have that audience too

            “It also strongly implies that of gamers that own both, they spend more time on X1.”

            No it doesnt, you are pulling out your own opinion and passing them off like facts

            I can say because people buy PS4;’s more, there is more time accounted for gaming on PS4’s than Xbox One’s, no back up to prove it like yours

          • corvusmd

            Dude…Sony and MS FLAT OUT say otherwise…that in the first year PS4 gamers played 1 billion hour of games X1 gamers played 2 billion….you don’t have to believe me or my opinion…go check for yourself. Look up each platforms Anniversary stats for yourself so you don’t have to believe me……stop trying to spin it. It would litterally take you 10 seconds to find out that you are wrong about the 1 bil-2bil stat…just google search PS4 Anniversary Stats, and Xb1 anniversary stats….TRY EVEN. Don’t just dismiss something as BS cause you dont WANT to believe it….you’ll be blind forever if you do that.

            The part about countries X1 is released in…not saying that alone will close the gap at all….but it’s just one of the factors.

          • datdude

            “Excuses are tools of incompetence that build monuments of nothingness, and those who employ their use rarely accomplish anything.” Poor corvusmd, the 360 launched more than 1 full year before the ps3, yet still trails in worldwide sales. Yet somehow this poor soul thinks even though the console launched essentially simultaneously this time around, excuse making is still needed. LOL…the delusion is monumental. I suppose the severe price cuts less than one year after launch and the giving away of multiple free games aren’t indicative of the arse kicking Microsoft is taking either? LOL…four times the countries indeed. This guy would need four times the mental capacity to climb out of that hole of excuses he keeps digging. And he’ll be making more excuses in 2015, when yet another ps4 exclusive wins game of the year, and xbox exclusives have yet to even sniff victory in that category. Wonder what his excuse is for that? LOLOLOLOL!!!

          • coip

            It’s not necessary to point out that someone’s opinion is someone’s opinion. We all understand this already.

            I disagree with the contention that Sony has better first-party studios. Microsoft Studios has a much broader swath of games. Sony only excels at one thing: 3D Action/Adventure games. Microsoft is better at just about everything else.

            Here is my take on their IPs by genre (note, some instance of [no entry] may be incorrect, in which case, please feel free to reply back with whatever IP Sony owns that falls in that genre):
            Fighting: Killer Instinct vs. (no entry)
            Racing: Forza Motorsport + Forza Horizon + Project Gotham > Gran Turismo + DriveClub
            FPS: Halo + Perfect Dark > Killzone
            3rd-Person Shooter: Gears of War + Crackdown > (no entry)
            Motion-controlled: Kinect (Kinect Sports, Kinect Party, Xbox Fitness, etc.) > PS camera
            RTS: Halo Wars + Rise of Nations + Age of Empires > (no entry)
            Creation games: Minecraft + Project Spark > LBP
            Simulation: Zoo Tycoon + Kinectimals + Viva Pinata + Black & White > (no entry)
            Platformers: Max: The Curse of Brotherhood + +Ori and the Blind Forest + Kalimba + Banjo-Kazooie > (no entry)
            Card: Scrolls > (no entry)
            RPG: Fable + Blue Dragon > (no entry)
            3D Action Adventure: (no entry) < infamous + Uncharted + God of War + The Last of Us.

            As I see it, Microsoft Studios trounces Sony in all genres but one–one in which Sony excels. That said, Microsoft has done a decent job of trying to fill that gap with 2nd-party games like Dead Rising 3, Ryse, Sunset Overdrive, Quantum Break, and Rise of the Tomb Raider, so given that they have adequate alternatives in that genre plus superior alternatives in most other genres, I see Microsoft Studios as significantly stronger and more versatile than Sony's 1st-Party offerings.

          • Gority

            Your comparison list is super biased. I don’t even mind that you think xb is better in all those categories but some games you listed in wrong genre, then included games from last generation for Xbox but not ps. Either you are misinformed or just trying to make your point by leaving out info.

          • coip

            Try offering a solution instead of wasting space and time. What games are in the wrong genre? What games are missing? Actually contribute something to the discussion or go away. Also, I never said that this was a list of games from this generation. I said it’s a list of owned IP. Capiche?

          • Thad Vanity

            At least half the games you list there are either last-gen games with no announced or even speculated next-gen version or are just plain bad.

            Despite presenting your position as that of the middleman, you questionable & selective list betrays your real bias….

          • coip

            They are a list of some of the IP that Microsoft owns. Nowhere did I say this is a list of current-gen games. If you want to amend that list to fill in the gaps, do so. Otherwise, zip it. If you’re not going to contribute to the discussion, don’t intrude on it.

          • GameDev345

            Sony has 15 first party studios, MS have five or four who actually make games

            Even phil spencer admitted to taking TR because their didnt have the first party studio to make a game like Uncharted

            Sony has two difference racing studios, Evolution and Polyphony Digital

            Sony has Gulity Gear and now street fighter as exclusive fighting games, lol even Playstation all stars developed by Santa Monica.

            Sony has Ratchet and Clank, Knack,as platformers and am pretty sure am forgetting some

            Order 1886 (RAD), Uncharted 4 (ND), Syphon filter (Sony Bend), Getaway series (Sony London studio), are just part of Sony exclusive third person shooters

            Sony actually has Resistance series and Killzone as First person exclusives and MS only has Halo

            Japan studio alone has team ico, project siren, team gravity and their main JRPG team within them

            Santa Monica has Giant sparrow, Funomenia and more within them

            Sony has exclusive horror titles with until dawn, project siren

            Ms has nothing like God of War, Ms has no sport franchise like MLB the show for Sony

            I can keep on going on and on, Sony and Nintendo demolish MS in first party studios, which is why Ryse, DR3, Titanfall are on the xbox One cause MS has to buy them cause they dont have enough first party studios

            Sony released 7 first party games in the first year from different studios, MS released only two

            Killer instinct is not a first party title, it was developed with a combination of Double Helix (Not MS studio) Iron Galaxy (Not MS), then Rare (first party) it is more of a second party title

            You might have preference for MS studios like I have for Sony WWS but dont be delusional that both are even close
            even Phil spencer continously admits they need to invest in more first parties as they are lacking heavily in that department

            That is a downright lie. Here are 13 alone (343, Good Science Studio, Team Dakota, Turn 10, Twisted Pixel, Launchworks, Lionhead, Lift London, Rare, Press Play, Mojang, BigPark, and Black Tusk Studios), and that doesn’t include all of their first-party studios or any of their 2nd-party ones.

            The rest of your rambling nonsense is not worth my time to rebuff.

          • mark_parch

            totally agree its that logic that made me go for xbox one. uncharted 4 looks insane but i wasn’t willing to get a ps4 for that game alone. i think tomb raider will be just as good tho

          • bruce livingston

            Since you’re just listing IPs and conveniently leaving out most of Sony’s, let me help you out with that :)
            Resistance, Valkyria Chronicles, Demon Souls, Ratchet and Clank, Heavy Rain, Beyond 2 Souls, Mod Nation Racers, MAG, Yakuza, Shadow of Colossus, Ninja Gaiden, Heavenly Sword, Sly, Twisted Metal, TLOU, Ni No Kuni, Journey, The Show, Persona…just to name some off the top of my head, you clearly have a bias sir, at least be honest about it, lol.

          • http://www.projectspark.com coip

            Wow, you’re misinformed. The majority of those are not Sony’s:
            Resistance = Insomniac Games, not Sony
            Valkyria Chronicles = Sega, not Sony
            Demon Souls = From Software, not Sony
            Mod Nation Racers = United Front Games, not Sony
            Yakuza = Sega, not Sony
            Ninja Gaiden = Tecmo, not Sony
            Heavenly Sword = Ninja Theory, not Sony
            Ni no Kuni = Level 5, not Sony
            Journey = thatgamecompany, not Sony
            Persona = Atlus, not Sony

            Try again. This time, do research first.

            Excellent dude, you sure did shut him up, well done.

          • datdude

            Has a Microsoft exclusive won a goty award yet? Case opened, case closed. You can’t even get a sniff at goty. Go back to retreads of Halo and Gears, that’s all ya got son. Good luck with that.

          • http://www.projectspark.com coip

            They have, 7 times, actually. More than Sony, and they’ve been in the industry far fewer years. Read ’em and weep, chump:

            Halo 1 (IGN, Edge, Moby Games, Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences)
            Halo 2 (Gamespy, Readers Choice, X-Play)
            Halo 3 (Time Magazine)
            Halo 4 (Inside Gaming Awards)
            Gears of War (G4)
            Alan Wake (Time Magazine)
            Minecraft (Time Magazine)

          • Jorge Almeida

            I disagree with you Sony only have 2 very good first party studios Nautghy Dog and Santa Monica, And Santa Monica have yet to prove themselves they are good (85+ metacritic) in anything other than God of War. Sony doesn’t have much more or better first party studios than Microsoft they’re equal on that camp

          • GameDev345

            Thats your opinion, I cant force you to like Sony WWS, Polyphony Digital Gran Turismo is highest selling game in the world, Sony Japan who have team ico, Project Siren, Team Gravity,and their main JRPG team within them have very popular series like Shadow of Colossus and Ico,

            Sony bend did Uncharted for the Vita and have an open world game to announce, they are also responsible for the popular Syphon filter series

            ,Sony san diego does MLB the show, the most successful baseball game franchise,

            Sucker punch does Infamous series which is also very popular

            Evolution studios with motorstorm and Drive club

            Guerrila games with Killzone franchise and are makign an open world rpg

            Media Molecule with the very popular LBP, even Nintendo’s president said he wanted LBP on Nintendo
            They are all here

            http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sony_Computer_Entertainment

            MS studios dont even come close to the amount Sony has, Sony has 15 first party studios who with external teams, MS has like four or fiver first party studios. they are not even close to equal

          • dapaintrain

            Do you mean Sucker punch? Instead of Santa Monica

          • datdude

            If you think Sony only has two very good first party studios, then comparatively Microsoft must have negative four. I can do that maths too guy. What a clown.

        • corvusmd

          EXACTLY!!! I have a PS4 and I can’t find anything other than UC4 that I HAVE to play….and at this point it just costs me $60 to make the commitment…not $460

          • jacksjus

            This is absolutely without a doubt the dumbest thing that I have ever read on any gaming forum.

            So you’re telling us that you bought a system for a game that doesn’t even have a release date? And then you want to complain that you paid $400 for it when you could have waited?

            Wow talking about being full of ish. Smh!

          • ImOnaDrugCalledSheen

            Its nothing more then xbox fanboy propaganda, they’ve been trying to rep manage Microsoft since the xbone reveal, it clearly hasn’t worked but kudos to them for the undying loyalty.

          • Somerandomperson

            JRPGs,

          • ImOnaDrugCalledSheen

            Adversely I cant find anything to make me want to buy an xbone. See how that works?

          • King Eric The second

            don’t forget about the new god of war

          • homo

            Man stfu !! You are full of shit ! you turd

        • Somerandomperson

          Same thing can be said for the XB-one

          I have no desire to own one.
          Halo and Gears of war don’t interest me, Western titles in general mostly don’t interest me. (XB titles are mostly western centric)

          You can give me an xb-one for free and I’ll immediately sell it and buy a ps4 and a vita/wiiU

          • coip

            There’s a lot more to Microsoft’s lineup than Halo and Gears of War: Forza, Project Spark, Fantasia: Music Evolved, Dance Central Spotlight, Sunset Overdrive, Ori and the Blind Forest, Kinect Sports, D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die, ScreamRide, Crackdown, Phantom Dust, Quantum Break, ScaleBound, Below, Inside, etc.

          • Jorge Almeida

            Exactly And overall they have more quality, other thing I noticed back with Rise of Tomb Raider deal everyone was screaming Microsoft is ruining gaming industry, Way do people now don’t cry Sony is ruining gaming industry with SFV deal?!

          • dapaintrain

            Probably because it also made it to pc so it’s not as bad allot of people complaining about the tomb raider deal were pc gamers

          • Somerandomperson

            I can say the same thing for the WiiU and PS4, in addition to Western games, these platforms offer Japanese Games as well.

          • coip

            But none of them offer the games I just listed because those are exclusive.

          • Somerandomperson

            So are you implying that WiiU and PS4 have no exclusive games? That’s the most pathetic thing I have heard in generations. It’s nintendo and playstation we’re talking about, they have longer history than xbox.

            WiiU exlusives out number PS4 and XB-one exclusives combined. Plus, most XB-one games are bound to be released on PC which everyone here commenting owns.

            I can do a list for you if you want, of games that XB-one will never get.

          • coip

            I’m not implying anything. Stop jumping to conclusions and learn how to read. I said the WiiU and PS4 don’t have those exclusives. It’s not the GRE. Don’t break your brain.

        • ImOnaDrugCalledSheen

          Pretty sure people can say the exact same thing about your precious xbone and its lackluster games, its called your personal opinion and it means very little to anyone other then you.

          • coip

            I would thank you for your opinion on the matter, but, truth be told, it means very little to me or anyone other than you.

        • mark_parch

          i have an xbox one and am very happy with that choice but you are kidding yourself if you think uncharted 4 doesn’t interest you it looks insane. the rest of the games meh

          • spid3r6

            Honestly I am disappointed that there was a big down grade in graphics in comparison to the reveal and only wonder if there will be another like Driveclub!

          • coip

            I don’t care much more 3D Action-Adventure games. They’re played out, and the best of them are multiplatform anyway (Grand Theft Auto, for instance). I’m not saying Uncharted isn’t a good franchise, but it’s not a system seller.

        • datdude

          This just in….I don’t think coip actually knows what quality gaming is. You could introduce this poor unfortunate to the best game ever and because he has no ability to play it his butthurt would prevent him from acknowledging the greatness. Poor bastard.

          • http://www.projectspark.com coip

            First of all, your homophobia is despicable and ignorant.
            Second of all, there is this adage. It goes like this “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. Just because I have no interest in rehashed, generic brawlers or games based on the most boring sport of all time, doesn’t mean I don’t know what quality gaming is (that you think those games represent the epitome of quality is, unquestionably, more telling).

            I award innovation. Games like Fantasia: Music Evolved, Minecraft, and Project Spark are much more impressive and worthy of acknowledgement than the list of poseur games you just listed.

          • datdude

            Never have so many words been spoken to say absolutely nothing at all.

    • Wargreymon559 .

      Oh look it’s Corvusmd.Funny I dont see you around N4G anymore.Are butthurt like all your xbuddies over there that Sony locked down SF V as PS4 exclusive?

      • corvusmd

        How does that make sense at all….A) I have a PS4 just like I had a PS1///2///3…so it being exclusive makes NO difference at all to me B). NO ONE is upset that SF is exclusive….why would they be?

      ps4 has so many fucking games coming out its crazy. xbox has nothing coming out but multiplats that look better on ps4. pc is the best overall though.

      • corvusmd

        You are so lost it’s retarded, and trying to explain reality to you would be a waste of time

    • You are flat out wrong

      And yet it’s a far more sensible choice compared to the Shitbox Done and it’s no games. You know it’s bad when your precious Phil Spencer has to damage control the Xbone’s piss weak 2015 line up.

      Oh wait, the patch that finally fixes the Disaster Chief Collection will be out. You have that. LMAO!

      • corvusmd

        No not even close to a better choice….seriously….you think these promises of un-dated hype are better than playing games this holiday season? …and out of all the hype only ONE GAME is worth it…and its one we already knew about??? Sorry bud, but X1 is a MUCH MUCH MUCH better value right now….take your fanboy goggles off and reality will provide you with a better life.

        If you think MCC belongs with the word “disaster” you’re clearly just a jaded ignorant fanboy…EVEN IF there was no MP at all in MCC it’s STILL better than all PS exclusives combined so far.

        • Revolver Ocelot

          Sure is. Wii U and PS4 >>>> Shitbox Done. That’ll come into even more stark contrast next year when all the PS4 games come out and Bots are left waiting until September for Quantim Break. Normal people think it’s better to get games throughout the year than dump a few cross-gen games and ports at the end of it.

          And then he tries to shill for the Disaster Chief Collection. Mate: your broken port collection has totally f*cked the Xbone. Wonder how many former Halo fans aren’t turned up for 5.

    • ImOnaDrugCalledSheen

      To bad your parents didn’t think of all the reasons they shouldn’t have a kid. Love your jealousy though, makes me even more happy I got a PS4.

      • corvusmd

        I have a pS4 too….no jealousy, just reality.

    • otherZinc

      Agreed.

      Sony is trying to get attention away from the last 2 shi**y holiday lineups:
      Knack, Killzone Shadow Fall, Drive Club, & LBP3.

      M$ killed it.

      2015 has Quantum Break, Tomb Raider, & Halo 5. That’s only what we know, not what’s up Phils sleve. That alone is better than everything Sony announced.

    • Monokuma

      I like how the ponies were going on and on about how UC4 was only possible on PS4 and now it looks worse than QB! Hahahaha!!!

      • Revolver Ocelot

        Xbox vermin haven’t been this delusional since their shit console’s reveal.

  • Dennis Crosby

    I don’t Xbox gamers care about the SFV being exclusive they are just trying to get the point across that when TR was announced people went bat shit saying it wasn’t good for the industry, CD was making a big mistake by not including it on ps4, even threatening the developers with bodily harm and telling the voice actress they would rape her. It got out of hand quickly but when SFV was announced none of those people did that to anyone at capcom at the end of the day these businesses deals make people want to own those console. Those deals separate the consoles also give developers a low risk high reward situation

  • jacksjus

    My guess is MS’ plan will once again be a massive dump come next holiday. Why is he concerned with Sony’s release dates otherwise?

    • milwaukee

      Because Sony has a reputation of delaying games that’s why, so half of those games are not gonna make it till 2016 or….

      • GameDev345

        Another insider I see, tell me when half of those games are going to come out??

        Wasnt Quantum break delayed?? Many developers with multiplats delayed their game this first year not only Sony

      • jacksjus

        Even half is more on the radar than what we know MS is bringing.

    • Jorge Almeida

      Well maybe no so far 2015 have a lot of great AAA exclusives slated for 2015, Halo 5, Rise of Tomb Raider, Quantum Break, Fable Legends and more, exclusive games like Phantum Dust, Scalebond, Crackdown haven’t a concrete release date yet, the rumored Forza 6 and Gears of War Marcus Fenix Collection may come in 2015 to since 2016 will be the year of Gears of War 4, this and Phil already said they’re rebooting even more old franchises from original Xbox like they’re doing with Phantum Dust and The new AAA game from Rare I’m sure Xbox will have a great 2015

  • truth11112222

    I have both consoles and my friends and I dont play the XBOX games online anymore and now buy the multi pats for PS4 because we cant get the DAMN PARTY CHAT WORKING…… Get this working please!!! It is sad because we would prefer to play the games (assuming new SDK with parity) on the Xbox one because of the controller, but will play them on PS4 instead as we can get party chat working and they games play without issue.

  • tplarkin7

    PSX was very weak. The games are either small indie titles, or sequels. Bloodborn and The Order look okay. Not sure they’re doing anything new, though. That said, not sure what’s in store for Xbox. Sunset Overdrive is not what we need. Honestly, there’s no game that looks “exciting and new” for any platform, including PC. Innovation is in the crapper now.

    • HalfBlackCanuck

      No Man’s Sky looks innovative as f*ck. I have no interest in it personally, but I “get it.”
      Have you played the same SSO that I’ve played because that game is SUPER fun. Nothing mind blowing, but enjoyable.
      From PSX (I watched out of curiosity) I found I got the most jelly on games that didn’t seem to confirm permanent exclusivity (outside of UC4 and Dungeon Defenders 2). Bloodborne not my thing, The Order just looks… I don’t even know. I just can’t get into it the same way others apparently can.

      • tplarkin7

        No Man’s Sky looks like an aquarium. What do you do besides “discover planets”?

        • HalfBlackCanuck

          That’s why I don’t personally care. But a procedurally generated solar system full of peppered with inhabited planets (IDK if all have life on them) seems pretty innovative. Especially from such a small team. Also looks like combat isn’t a big thing, so that in itself is pretty left-field for most games these days.
          Again, I don’t have interest, but it you can’t say there’s no innovation.

          • GotNews4Ya

            Or its just so early, they haven’t shown any gameplay of fighting.. from what I have heard.. your ship can fight and so can you on the ground.. I guess you have a laser gun or something. Anyways.. I am skeptical about it.. but I will probably pick it up.. I just don’t foresee myself investing as much time in it.. I like games where I can beat someone at something.. I don’t really understand that one too much… As for Bloodborne, I am thrown through a loop here.. because I like how the game looks, and everything, but They tend to be a bit too hard for me, I suppose. I dunno.. I just end up getting bored after the thousandth death, and play something else.. and with the Witcher 3 coming out around then.. if not the same day.. I can tell you 100% which game will have my focus.. lol

  • RA3030

    “Tell us what you think in the comments section below.”
    I think Xbox needs many new ideas. Halo, Gears and Forza can only be redone for so long. Forza sells are on the decline now and have been for the last 3 to 4 years and with each new release there are less sells for each one. 343 needs to hit Halo5 waaaay outta the park or we may be seeing the same thing with the Halo franchise. The last Gears game sold so poorly I’m not sure that they can save that franchise but they can do a collection release and then the release the new Gears and we’ll see then. They need TitanFall to step their game up and make a better TF2 and stay exclusive to The Xbox, PC but no PS4 release. The few new things they have coming up are a good start but it’s not enough and they need to fix the Indie problem. What ever Indie game releases on the PS4 the X1 needs to have it. It’s a shame that No Man’s Sky has not announced a X1 release and they may yet do so unless it’s been announced only on PS4 but I’ve not heard that yet. Right now the PS4 users have access to so many more games than the X1 and the PSNow service a lot to do with that and they are adding big named titles to the service weekly. The EA service is good but the PSNow service has so many more games and more than a few are EA titles. The Apps on X1 are fantastic and while the Kinect is much better than the PS4 cam sadly for X1 users Sony did a far better job of giving the PS4 users a reason to use it. The PS4 cam is simple but very cool while I have no clue as why one would want the Kinect cam.
    I’m sure Microsoft has a lot planned for the X1 in 2015 and I hope they do because The PS4 users have a fantastic 2015 ahead of them.

    • coip

      Forza Horizon 2 is the best racing game ever made. I’ll gladly take more of that. We’ll know more about Halo 5’s potential very soon, when the beta launches in a few weeks. Gears of War is a wildcard now that it has a new developer–perhaps Black Tusk Studios will nail it.

      No Man’s Sky is looking to be one of the most undeservedly overhyped indie games ever. That’d be nice if it comes to Xbox One at some point too, but, right now, Xbox One has way more promising exclusive ID@Xbox games: Below, Inside, Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, Cuphead, Aztez, Fru, etc.

      PS Now is a joke compared to EA Access, in terms of value. For $30 per year you get access to all the games in their vault, without restriction, plus early access on new releases, plus a 10% discount on new games. In another year or two, when that Vault gets even bigger, it’s going to be killer. Sony will rue snubbing them.

      Why would anyone want a Kinect camera? How about because “Xbox, on” instant on via it’s built in IR blaster that blasts on the TV, Xbox, and cable box, facial recognition that automatically signs you in and swaps between accounts with a simple voice command, Twitch streaming with an inset, Upload clip recording with an inset, Skype in 1080p with auto-digital zoom and voice commands, ability to play exercise apps like Xbox Fitness or Shape Up that monitor your movements and your heartbeat, even in pitch black, oh, and one more thing: the best exclusive motion-controlled games on the market: Fantasia: Music Evolved, Dance Central Spotlight, D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die, Kinect Sports Rivals, Rabbids TV Invasion, Boom Ball Kinect, etc.

    PS4 has become the quanity system and less the quality system. I really hope their is a great number of exclusives and 1st party for 2015 that really shine, cause if not the system to me will remained unplugged. I really disliked UC3 and so I’m not sure yet what to think of UC4, is will be a rent before buy for sure(even if it scores a perfect 10). ‘Deep Down’ is still on my radar, ‘Shadow of the Beast’, I can’t wait. Last SF series I enjoyed was Third Strike so ‘SFV’ really isn’t in my sights. The Order 1886 is going to be my must buy. ‘No Man Sky and a bunch of other indie games will be or already be on PC, most likely I’ll pick them up their due to cost saving and my Rig’s performance. I do hope more games do shine for me cause I would like to invest more in this console. :)

  • andy

    That apology to Hello Games Phil, whenever you are ready. Your Xbox “fans” are dying to play No Mans Sky on Xbone in 2015.

  • Lacarious

    Spenc drinking to much m$ Cool-aid.

    2015 will be the death of xb1

  • chavy git

    good ol phil, Uncharted 4, Until Dawn, The Order and Grim Fandango, yes i said it, Grim Fandango stole the show, if you are a point n click adventure junkie you will share my enthusiasm, Bloodborne looked extremely meh in my opinion, i now await the Xbox experience :D

  • Thad Vanity

    Killer Instinct…..? Really……

  • JoeCharles

    Other than uncharted and bloodborne, nothing really interests me for ps4 in 2015. The order still looks unbelievably boring. Street fighter is a great get by Sony but when is it launching? I am happy that there’s a new god of war though. I just hope they focus on a new mythology. Kratos already killed all the gods.

    After saying that, I think Xbox looks great in 2015. Quantum break, halo 5 and tomb raider will keep me busy but I hope they have more titles to announce between March and fall.

  • Tha Truth

    Just another reason why the PS4 is destroying the Trash – Box. Third – place Poverty Box is dead and in third place where it belongs, every exclusive game released so far from Galo: No Multiplayer Collection to Ryse: Lack Of Draw Distance is a reason why nobody with any self respect would buy an XBOX.

    Nobody is going to pay money for the cheap, peasant experience that the Xbox offers, from shit exclusives to shit, sub – HD third party titles and now third parties are abandoning the console entirely, Capcom were the first of many. Third parties are obviously reacting to the fact that the Trash – Box has been in third place all year they have now pulled the plug on the shitty, dying pauper console.

    Only low – IQ morons and non – gaming losers play on the Trash – Box, which is exactly why it’s in third place like the unwanted POS it is. No exclusive games worth playing all year and none announced for next year either, Trash – Box is dead.

  • InspectorGadget80

    Well i think SONY just kick M$ in the butt for STREET FIGHTER exculsive. I don’t see MS showing off new games yet

  • datdude

    Unlike too many xbot only gamers, Phil is a decent guy with a good head on his shoulders. He has gone out of his way to praise and complement Sony many times since the launch of PS4, while simultaneously working away on making improvements to xbox. It’s no use ignoring or trying to minimize the success Sony is having with the ps4, it would seem petty and weak, the way many xbot only gamers sound when they try to denounce the ps4. Admit the competitor is doing well, while continuing to tout your own machine and games that are out now and are coming in the future. And most importantly, put the messiness of E3 2013 in the rear view and pledge never to return to that limited vision for gaming. Players want choices, keep giving them to us and you flourish. Limit choice and suffer the consequences.
