Canadian marketing head says new console is outpacing Xbox 360 preorders 2-to-1, no worries about a Red Ring of Death repeat.
As for how Xbox One will fare against the PlayStation 4(which has no games) and Wii U(lol), Flannagan pointed to Xbox Live and the company's focus on social integration as two differentiating factors that will give it the edge. He also said he was proud of the game lineup, saying Xbox One exclusives walked out of E3 with twice the awards of both competitors.
"Xbox One is going to start ahead, in terms of the experience we can deliver," Flannagan said. "And because we're built for the future, we're going to stay ahead. I think there is not a better experience you can buy this holiday, and there will not be a time this generation where there's a better experience you can buy than Xbox One...And it's probably going to be a pretty long generation. We're probably here for a while because we're built for the future. This is a console that will last you, conservatively a decade, if I had to put a bet down today."
