The Xbox One's lineup of exclusive titles for this holiday is unparalleled, according to Microsoft executive Kudo Tsunoda. He says in a new interview that neither Sony nor Nintendo can stack up with the breadth of exclusive content that Microsoft has in store for this holiday.

"The amount of big, blockbuster, exclusive titles that you can get this holiday on Xbox is just stunning," he told Official Xbox Magazine, as reported by sister site GamesRadar. "I mean, it's really amazing. I think if you look at our competition, there's no way that people can really stack up with our exclusive content."

Microsoft has repeatedly referred to its upcoming holiday slate as the "greatest games lineup in Xbox history." Some high-profile upcoming exclusive games include Forza Motorsport 6, Fable Legends, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Halo 5: Guardians. Another Xbox manager says he believes this year could be the best since 2007 for new releases.

By comparison, PlayStation president Andrew House has admitted that Sony's exclusive lineup for holiday 2015 is a "little sparse," which is why the company is making third-party exclusive deals with multiplatform games like Destiny, Star Wars Battlefront, and Call of Duty: Black Ops III.

Some of Nintendo's big holiday 2015 Wii U and 3DS exclusive games, meanwhile, include Star Fox Zero, The Legend of Zelda: Triforce Heroes, and Xenoblade Chronicles X. The new Legend of Zelda for Wii U was supposed to launch this year, but Nintendo delayed the game to 2016 or potentially later.

In addition to games, Tsunoda said the Xbox One will benefit this year from the introduction of backwards compatibility support for Xbox 360 titles. This features launches to the public in November alongside the release of the New Xbox One Experience.

"I think our exclusive content, the variety of gameplay that we're able to provide people on Xbox, and then of course, the high value that comes with enabling things like backward compatibility and listening to our fans--I just think that's where Xbox really shines," Tsunoda said.
