At this point in the battle it’s debatable which next-gen console is going to be more successful in November. Will the PlayStation 4 win the battle because it has better technical features? Or will the Xbox One be the favorite console between the two because of exclusivity. There is lots of factors that could determine which platform will come out on top before the big launch. However, Microsoft corporate vice president Phil Harrison is confident they’re “winning the games message”. Meaning the Xbox One is recognized by the media for the best lineup of launch titles than any other new platform coming out. That lineup includes Titanfall, a mecha first-person shooter that has won the most awards in the history of E3, according to Harrison.
In an interview with Edge, Harrison said,
We are winning the games message. 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.
Despite having 23 games available at the launch of the Xbox One, which he also said is the best in the history of consoles. Harrison acknowledged that Microsoft has had struggles with the Xbox One, and the company has made appropriate changes for the better.
I think when you create a vision of the future, you paint the vision of the future that you are most excited about. 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 One is currently scheduled to launch a week after the PlayStation 4, which is on November 22, 2013 for $500.
