Yusuf Mehdi: In the long run our console will win

I corrected the most striking quotes from the translation:

We unveiled 20 titles for Xbox One, of which 17 are exclusive to this console. I do not think Sony can say the same. What I hear is that before launching we are better positioned, with a complete value proposition. With the installed Skype voice service and Kinect motion sensor included. No point in winning a show, because the test will be the consumer. In the long run our console will win.

In answer to the question:
Is not it excessive to have to connect at least every 24 hours for it to work?

No. It is a mere connection to check who the user is and what is in your account. It doesn´t require a powerful connection. Just use a mobile for the check.

In answer to the question:
Are we witnessing the last generation with physical based support?

I understand that there are moments when you want to have the physical product, as with children at Christmas, you do not have patience to download. Each country is different, with their customs, and other connections, so we decided to leave.

17 of those are not exlusive. Unless he meant exclusive to MS consoles then yeah

Also if they think they're fooling anyone by paying for 3rd party timed exclusives and passing them off as 1st party exclusive... a mess

last 3 years of 360 life had little to no exclusives or support from them. Supporting your console in the beginning is normal.

The results will show after launch

Give children and Santa thanks for not leaving physical based support,

Cause SONY did not blow there load...

That is bad news to me, the only game that made me want to get an XBONE was DR3 and after hearing some of its news( cod crowd) I was put off a bit.
If this is what they will offer for the next year or two, then I guess I won't get a XBONE for a while.

i hate that every company tries to confuse us with the term "exclusive". which games are actually exclusive and which one will come to the competitor platform a year later?

So they are OK with a lauch Bomba. It will not make them rethink the DRM.
launch wont be a problem. They will still sell as many as they can make. If they spend to get more and more exclusives they will keep adding to the install base

A year is a long time to wait. A game like mass effect or fall out would be spoiled for many many people. A shooter can be eclipsed in a year by other games. Titan fall may be a great 2014 game but only a decent 2015 game based on the competition that year. I find it hard to wait a few months and avoid spoilers for pc games that get released first on the consoles.

17/20?

Something about that feels off... and if that's true... they must have really failed their presser because I SHOULD be excited about that vs ps4 which had almost none exclusives o_O

They sure can't. By my count Sony unveiled exactly 0 titles for Xbox One. Those losers!

About the games, Sony said they will have 20 exclusive first-party games in the FIRST YEAR. And you know what's crazy? We only know about FIVE of them so far. So there's still so many surprises in store for us. We already know nearly all of MS's lineup.

Pregunta. Durante la feria E3 se ha dado a PlayStation 4 como ganadora, sobre todo, por su precio, 100 euros más barata. ¿Qué opina?

Respuesta. Que en la feria E3 no se gana ni se pierde, sino que va solo de juegos.
Holy shit that damage control

Microsoft, you couldn't sell more consoles than Sony last generation when they launched at a price tag that was one-hundred dollars more than yours.

How in the world are you going to sell more than Sony this time around while launching at a higher price, supporting policies that kills used games, and your console not being supported in Japan the year it launches?

That number can't be right. I didn't count 17 exlusive games at all.

Also, PS4 has Octodad!
me neither.

ryse, forza 5, Killer Instinct, Dead Rising 3, Sunset Overdrive, Kinect sports heroes (preshow), Halo (does that even count?)
below (MS published?), titanfall (timed)

thats 9, of which I think only 7 are proper exclusive and one is just a name.

they announced 15 first party games would be coming in the first 12 months, Sony announced 20

I don't see how you get anywhere near 17 exclusives or Sony not being able to say the same because they said 20. Odd.


I don't know why GAF is bashing MS again in this thread.

What the guy says makes sense.

it does? Here is MS's own list of 'all games announced at E3'. Can you point out the 17 exclusive ones? Unless they're talking about exclusive DLC bullshit.

I didn't think about the Santa argument, but it's true (although anecdotal I suppose), it's not the same thing to offer a download code on a piece of paper in a 100% digital market. :)

No it doesn't. They won't win in the long run because they have nothing to run with. They blew their load early on. Sony kept things for TGS (Does MS attends it?).
It's actually smarter because revealing more exciting games closer to release generates positive buzz not now when it's not needed, but in Fall when people are going to to go to stores and make the final decision.

I think you need to included some of the indie games that they announced for the 360, plus games like that zombie vs flower: garden warfare.

the more and more these guys talk, the more they remind me of Sony circa '06.

"with blu-ray we offer a better value proposition on PS3"

guess what, consumers don't care, whats valuable to them is money in their pocket.

How many of those 'exclusive' games will end up multi-platform when devs/publishers aren't satisfied with the sale figures?
Probably not too many since MS is publishing Ryse, Dead Rising 3, Sunset Overdrive, etc..

But that 17 title list is basically ALL of MS' first party capacity, all the 3rd party deals they've struck, and some indie deals sprinkled in. They're literally everything we'll see from MS over the next couple of years.

Meanwhile Sony has shown us nothing but launch and Q1 titles with the exception of The Order 1886 which is from a contracted 3rd party. Yosp has said that pretty much every other studio has a PS4 game in development. Despite those limitations Sony has still shown about a dozen exclusives (if you don't count PC, which MS clearly doesn't).
