MGS boss Phil Spencer reckons Xbox 360′s line-up is more than a match for PS3′s.

“Let’s start from the beginning of both consoles – PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 – which first party has had more success on their own platform? We have Gears, Halo, Forza, we’re continuing to push existing IP while bringing new IP to market. I’ll line up against Sony’s first party any day,” he told GI.

The exec also claimed he was happy to be matched to Sony’s first-party efforts this generation by any metric.

“We talk about games when we know what they are, when we can guarantee the quality to the customers, and we’ll say when they’re going to come out – I think the customers want that. But lining us up against Sony first party – I love that comparison,” he added. “Review score average, exclusive hits to-date, you pick the metric and we can talk about it.”
