Harrison says Xbox One launch line-up is the best in console history

A bullish Phil Harrison has said that he thinks the Xbox One will launch with the best line-up of games in the history of consoles”.

Microsoft’s corporate VP also says that, in light of his company’s many Xbox One policy changes, he wants his company to be seen as one that reacts to the demands of consumers.

So we hope we are being seen as a brand that is listening to consumers, and one that gives consumers a choice,” he told CVG. People can buy games physically on disc or digitally through our marketplace. Both can co-exist on our platform, which supports both very well.

That’s still a very important part of our strategy, but ultimately it’s the games that make Xbox One stand out, and we have the best line-up of games – we think – in the history of consoles.”

23 games have been officially announced as launch titles for Xbox One.

The highlights are probably Dead Rising 3, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Battlefield 4, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and Watch Dogs as well as Microsoft’s first party offerings – Forza 5, Ryse, Project Spark and Killer Instinct.
