In an interview with GamesRadar, Microsoft’s Kudo Tsunoda spoke about Xbox One and the coming months, and how he thinks that Microsoft is going to be dominating “the competition” with its new exclusive titles. He states, “I think if you look at our competition there’s no way that people can really stack up with our exclusive content, and that’s an amazing part of what we’re doing at Xbox.” Clearly, Tsunoda is referring to the Sony PlayStation 4 (and perhaps the Nintendo Wii too).
“You can see that what we’re focused on is just delivering high value for our gaming fans – and I think a big part of that is just listening to fan feedback, which we’ll always continue to do. I think it’s amazing, and this is just a job that you can see us doing in things evolving here at E3; the amount of big, blockbuster, exclusive titles that you can get this holiday on Xbox is just stunning. I mean, it’s really amazing,” Tsunoda adds further.
Xbox certainly does have a decent haul of exclusives this Holiday season, most notably with Halo 5 and Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Xbox owners should be ecstatic about the coming lineup. That being said, when it comes down to it, both Xbox One and PS4 have significant exclusives that should make folks on either console happy. With PS4 owners enjoying exclusive Destiny content, games like Until Dawn and the incoming Uncharted 4 release, Xbox owners should still definitely be looking forward to Tomb Raider and Halo.
Statements like these only serve to further divide a community that should be united in its love of a medium, and they should be taken with a grain of salt, acknowledged as the rhetoric of somebody trying to boost sales for their company’s console.
