Phil Harrison, corporate VP of Microsoft, is pretty pleased with Xbox One’s software line-up and points at all the recognition received at industry events like E3 and Gamescom as proof that the system has the strongest titles.
He obviously mentioned Titanfall, who at Microsoft doesn’t? And called it “the most heralded game in the history of E3.”
“The most important thing is the games. And coming out of E3, we had almost twice as many ‘game of the show’ nominations than our nearest competitor. So the industry – the journalists – are voting our games as the strongest titles,” he told MCV in an interview. “We have an exclusive relationship with EA and Respawn on Titanfall, which is the most heralded game in the history of E3.
“Then we built on that at Gamescom, where we had a fantastic reaction to putting hardware into people’s hands and letting them play. And that has been backed up by an unprecedented level of pre-orders.”
It’s too early to judge which system has the best games but Microsoft has done a good job so far with games like Ryse: Son of Rome, Forza Motorsport 5 and of course Titanfall being vital in attracting people to the system.
