Microsoft on Xbox One: "We are winning the games message"

Corporate VP Phil Harrison says he is confident Microsoft's software lineup is stronger than Sony's catalog of launch titles for PlayStation 4.

Microsoft is "winning the games message" when it comes to Xbox One vs. PlayStation 4, according to corporate vice president Phil Harrison. Speaking with Edge, Harrison said he is confident in Microsoft's launch lineup for the Xbox One, noting that media outlets agree.

"We are winning the games message," Harrison said. "We had over 100 awards coming out of E3 for games on our platform. That is more than twice as many awards as any other platform. So the media recognized our games on Xbox One as being the best lineup--including Titanfall, which is the most awarded game in the history of E3, coming to Xbox One and to Xbox 360."

The Xbox One's launch lineup includes 23 games and was previously described by Harrison as the best in the history of consoles. By comparison, Sony has said it will have 33 titles available on PS4 by December 31.

Also in Harrison's interview with Edge, the executive acknowledged that Microsoft's path thus far with the Xbox One has not been without its struggles.

"I think when you create a vision of the future, you paint the vision of the future that you are most excited about," he said. "But we got clear feedback that some of the things we were proposing were perhaps a little too far into the future. So we changed. We took feedback from the community; we changed our plans. We think that's a good thing."

Xbox director Albert Penello said earlier this month that though Microsoft is sticking with a disc-based model for the Xbox One launch, the company plans to support trading, loaning, and reselling of digital games down the road.

"I think we need to do that. That has to be part of the experience. Right now, we're focused on launch and we switched the program back to discs, because that's what customers wanted," Penello said at the time.

The Xbox One launches on November 22 for $500.

I do think the Xbox exclusives look much better right now, but I think the PS4 will get better later on.  I have already preordered an Xbox One and PS4, and I think they will both be great for different reasons.

At this point who is MS trying to convince besides THEMSELVES when making comments like this?  PS4 Pre orders have shown which way gamers have gone.

This article right here is why the Xbox One ISN'T going to "win". The more they speak, the more I hate Microsoft.

They don't need to add any fuel to the fire. It's already way out of hand.

MS: "Yes, Ryse is a turd nobody wants to buy or play, but.... We paid EA a ton of money to make their first TitanFall game unavailable on Playstation. (sequels on the other hand...)"

Xbox One WILL BREAK. Think about it, if ps4 can handle better graphics and so on then the xbox one is going to be pushed very hard, possibly even the components needing to be overclocked which reduces life span. that does not mean ps4 will not break, but it will at the very least last a lot longer.

Sept 25 is when AMD announces their new GPU chip line and it's speculated Microsoft cannot announce any details till the 26th on the hidden chip in the X1.

http://misterxmedia.livejournal.com/133802.html I'm not stating fact just what's been speculated as Major Nelson on reddit said there is a possible announcement coming

Allow me to educate you kid

Graphics quality is in function of exponential processing power

Which means that to create a world with 2x the graphic quality of read dead redemption, for example, would require much more than 2 x360 or 2 ps3

Its something like you have to reach 8-9 times the previous power to create something with 2x the previous quality.

that been said...neither ps4 or xone will give you graphics twice times better than actual gen

in a world where all that bs you posted were true..you still with similar products.

even if the difference were 30%(and its not) we would not see gameplay differences...you would have to pause the game...touch the 60 inch tv with your eyes so you could tell that 1 pixels in 1 specific border is worse

@ohjtbehaaave pre-ordering a system doesn't mean crap really. the exclusive games really sell the system. and unless u think infamous 2 and killzone are gonna beat XboxOne in game sale attachment rates you are deluded.

@lilj2626 ano what you are saying bout people being english teachers. I hate people who correct others who use slang. imo slang is just the modern day english language, and anyone who says it is not proper english are just uptight and probably never get laid. I hate them as much as you, but you are not doing yourself any favours typing an entire paragraph in capital letters lets be honest. I could barely understand a word of it.

@Blazen702 Penello already said there's no second GPU.  That rumor has officially been debunked by Microsoft.  Try again.

@Blazen702 Albert Penello officially said it doesn't exist on Twitter.  It doesn't exist.  Give up the stupidity already.  If it did exist in the Xbox One it would be over a thousand dollars.  Reality exists.

@DrWonderEyes @ohjtbehaaave Google it.  PS4 software pre-orders are outgunning xb1 software pre-orders by 50%!  Not just some "neck and neck", "sony just has the edge"....but 50%!(some exclusive titles, some cross-platform).  PS4 is sitting around 1.2+ million title pre-orders, where MS can tout around 800.000.  What was that you were saying about deluded now...??..........

@DrWonderEyes @ohjtbehaaave   I think anyone who see's the pre sale numbers and still think Xbox1 is the system of choice are the one's who are delusional.  Like MS management and MS fanboys.   MS is in trouble for next gen.

@Aaronp2k @evil_snuggles Maybe you guys will even be able to private / party chat on PS4! These Sony fan boys are so giddy over an insignificant difference in power. It meant nothing this generation, it will mean nothing next generation. The system with the best games and online service will win.
