Xbox One has the best launch line-up ‘in console history,’ believes Harrison

Wednesday, 21 August 2013 16:15 GMT By Dave Owen

Microsoft’s Phil Harrison has stated that he believes Xbox One’s launch line-up of 23 games is the best “in the history of consoles.”

First party titles Forza 5, Killer Instinct, and Ryse: Son of Rome will be available from day one. They’ll share shelf space with major releases such as Watch Dogs, Call of Duty: Ghosts, and Battlefield 4. Everyone who picks up an Xbox One on launch day will get a digital copy of FIFA 14 packed in.

Harrison spoke to CVG and said that he wants to “make sure the best games are on Xbox. 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.”

Although not a launch title, Microsoft has also secured the highly-anticipated Titanfall as a console exclusive.

Harrison also told CVG his thoughts on the new Kinect that Microsoft says will be included with every console, even though it will no longer be required for the console to work.

“”What we have shown really well at Gamescom is the magic of games that use Kinect,” Harrison said.

“We have shown the power of voice control. I’m probably going to piss off your readers unintentionally when I say this; I have an Xbox One at home, and being able to walk in and say ‘Xbox on’, and for the system to recognise me, launch and load my profile, and put my choices of content on the font page is a very magical experience.”

Do you agree that Xbox One’s launch line-up is the strongest of all time?

    Phil you confuse me…. A 360 game that migrated over to XBONE and 2 games that are technically incomplete on release to the public with games on not just your direct competitions console but also the previous gens make’s for a best line up ever?

    OF COURSE a microsoft executive is going to say the things he’s saying. It would be impressive if a group of ‘neutral’ developers said that, but since it’s coming from a microsoft executive there’s no merit behind what he’s saying.

    humm I must disagree to some extent. Titanfall ready or not for day luanch still has assymetrical game mechanics that so far I have not seen before.
    Though if it is like for BF3 and people whine about physics, effective weaponry and alikethen the game will certainly fall down in no time.

    Sorry Phil, I would argue that the original Xbox had a much better launch lineup. It launched with Halo, Dead or Alive 3, and Oddworld:Munch’s Odyssey. It might have had less launch titles, but those three titles were better than anything I can see out for the Xbone (or PS4) on Day 1.

    Dreamcast launched with Sonic Adventure, Soul Calibur, Hydro Thunder, and house of the dead 2, which was also a very strong lineup.

    Forza is a strong title, Ryse looks nice but meh gameplay wise. Dead Rising 3 looks decent, but the rest are mostly third party titles also available on PS4.

    PS4 has Killzone (I have never played the series before so the jury is out on that but it looks good), Knack, and Driveclub. I’m on the fence about Killzone and Driveclub, Knack I want, it looks like an animated movie. All the other great launch titles on PS4 are also available on Xbone.

    If you dont have a decent PC, then this launch might be amazing, as it has Battlefield 4 and Watch dogs, and other decent third party titles.

    If MS would have made Fable:Anniversary for Xbone at launch, A remastered Halo2, and a decent RPG or platformer, then I might have given the nod to the Xbone

    @16 – Using Xbone means your a Sony Fanboy? No, it could also mean you were a Long time Xbox owner who disliked MS’s actions with the Xbox One and thus went to PS4 (As I did), it could be that its funny so you use it, and it could be that you simply dont like writing Xbox One (stupid name),

    I agree with the line up on day one. Ever since SNES I bought system day one and I never witnessed such a great lineup. BUT You can’t beat Super Mario bros and Mario 64 doesn’t matter how many other games there are. :)
    Forza 5, Battlefield 4 and Killer Instinct are on my list and Ryse Im still on the fence with its latest gladiator trailer as Im not a fan of that fighting mechanics.

    Nope. N64 – Mario 64! Still the best launch title of all time. The only X box one launch title I’m interested in is Lego Marvel Superheroes. Honestly, both the XOne and PS4 have pretty substandard launch titles. I may just skip this generation and stick to PC gaming.

    If the PS4 somehow manages to produce Demon Souls 2…everything changes.

    #30 1 year ago
  31. NiceFellow

    @26 pretty obvious – if two devices both have the same title then they’re equal. To claim you have a better launch lineup the comparison has to be where the consoles aren’t equal.

    Both PS4 and XB1 will have Battlefield, CoD, Watch Dogs, etc. so that aspect of their libraries is a draw.

    Therefore the difference is down to Forza vs Driveclub, Ryse vs Knack, etc.

    Personally I think they look about equal – XB1 has slightly more retail games and PS4 seems to have slightly more digital/indie games.

    It’s a matter of taste which is better.

    Now if XB1 was launching with Titanfall or Halo I’d argue it was clearly better. Conversely if PS4 was launching with GT6 then it would easily have stronger lineup (and I’m still amazed they put it on PS3 and not PS4 – good for current customers but and odd choice in terms of supporting PS4).

    @31
    There are a lot of big hitters coming out on the current gen which will slow the adoption rates I think. I think that GT should have gone up against Forza, since Driveclub is not as good from what I’ve seen. But back to my point, games like GT6 and GTA V will keep people on the current gen for a while.

    I’d say the same thing when looking at things like Project Spark, which I don’t think needed to be on the 360 at all. Whilst I can understand they want to get the largest audience, I want them to make the best use of the tech they have, rather than continue using tech as old as the PS3 and the 360′s.

    As for who has the better launch line-up, it’s hard to say. I would always say that you really should take franchises out of the equation when looking at launch line-up’s objectively. At least that’s true when talking about people who only get one system; someone who bought a 360 only last gen isn’t going to care about Killzone, just as PS3 owners won’t care about Halo.

    Based on that I’d say there are good new IP on both fronts, it’ll just come down to which ones really make people think ‘Next-gen’.

    #35 1 year ago
  36. TF_PtMaster

    If anyone ask me, witch one has the system seller at launch, i would say… none. Forza can be a fantastic game, but it doesn’t have Gran Turismo pedigree.

    And in the other hand, Shadow Falls can look great, but is no Halo.

    The best games, are multi platform and they will be available in current gen consoles.

    but i’m buying both consoles ehheheehehe.

    I agree with him notwithstanding the multiplats. Lineup for lineup, it’s the best ever.

    My question is, why do people keep trying to compare Forza with Driveclub? Forza 5 is a followup to arguably the greatest racing game of all time. They shouldn’t even be in the same ballpark let alone the same sentence!

    Don’t forget Killer Instinct!

    Xbox One is launching with two fighting games (KI and Fighter Within), two racing game (Forza 5, which beats DriveClub hands down IMHO and NFS:R), two first person shooters (BF4 and COD:G), action games (Ryse, Dead Rising, AC4:BF and Watch Dogs), sport games (FIFA, Madden, etc), and even casual games (Just Dance 2014).

    The PS4′s line-up is pretty similar but I prefer Xbox One’s exclusives at the moment.

    But how can anyone criticize this launch line-up? There is something for every gamer. This has to be one of the best launch line-ups in my book.

    Too many haters out there…

    @47 – lol

    @48 – The Xbox 360 has it’s own exclusives (Halo 4, Gears of War: Judgement, Forza Horizon, Minecraft which was the PS4′s big announcement, and soon World of Tanks). So not sure where you got NOTHING, unless that’s what your inner ps3fanboy told you to say.

    Besides Killzone, the rest are pretty poor games. Knack looks like a Wii U game and DriveClub is probably going to be worse that GT6 for the PS3.

    There are more recent exclusives for ps3 than for xbox360 and upcoming. I wont mention the quality of those exclusives either cause thats debatable, but your comeback is quite hilarious.

    There might be more *recent* exclusives for the PS3 but that’s probably because Microsoft is moving on to the Xbox One. Maybe Sony should have worried more about bringing AAA exclusives to the PS4?

    The PS3 and Xbox 360 are like 10 years old. Was it really wise of Sony to bring GT6 to the PS3 and not the PS4 as a launch title? Would the Last of Us not have been a potential PS4 system seller? Instead, they are still focusing on the PS3 and hoping 16-bit indie games sell their PS4.

    @ 52

    Yes and no. Yes, they would definitely be sellers but I heard there was a game draught for 360 in recent months perhaps if not longer. Who says draught may also say comparison with other competitor(s).
    It was just a choice for Sony to not forget about their ps3′ers. That does not mean each title mentioned will not be lifted up to next gen current 2014 and same goes for Xbox1. Titles that sold very well in 2012-13 may be lifted up to next gen while waiting for next sequels.

    All i can say is that it is for best of gamers in general.

    @52 That just fits in with Sony’s philosophy for supporting a console with first party offerings, while also launching a new console. Seems to keep to their word of ten year support at least. Microsoft said they would support the 360 for ten years as well, but they may well just mean multiplatform offerings and not first party. They seem to differ on their commitments to customers.

    Considering that BOTH Microsoft and Sony took massive losses on the current consoles when released and only really started making money on the boxes around two/three years ago I would think its still likely we will see games released for the PS3 for another good two years after PS4 is released. They supported the PS1 through majority of the PS2′s lifespan and the same with the PS2 which I believe they only just stopped making a few months back and its still the best selling home console ever made. The PS3 was and still is a flop for Sony, the PS1 and PS2 had the larger install base over its competitors, they sold more third party content than anyone else, they had all the exclusive deals and games, and first party games too. But they seriously dropped the ball with the PS3 for its first two/three years. Then the console came into its own and third party games started to improve a lot, and their first party games have completely blown Microsoft out of the water even if your a hardcore Xbox fanboy you have to admit the games Sony’s studios make are pretty top notch stuff. By Sony releasing games for the PS3 people who don’t want to splash out £399 on a PS4 at launch can buy a 500GB PS3 Super Slim for £150 (if not cheaper) and be happy with the choice of 793 games (thanks wiki).

    So you see if your console is still technically on paper a failure then you wouldn’t want to potentially hurt sales by dropping support for the console altogether. The PS3 with a LONG LONG awaited OS UI upgrade and a price cut to £99 for say a 250-320GB Super Slim with one month of PS+ membership thrown in for good measure, it could potentially be a good seller as a games/media console device for the casual/non gamer.

    @55 – I get it but don’t you want to show your big guns for a system that is about to launch? You don’t have to forget the PS3. It just seems like a semi-weak launch.

    For example, if I’m considering trading in my PS3 for a PS4 and I see games like GT6 coming out only for the PS3… I’d think twice about doing the trade. I’d be likely to stick with my PS3 and wait it out. That just means less PS4 sales. Plus by having me wait it out… Sony is now giving Microsoft a chance at convincing me they got the better goods. To each his own, but I don’t fully agree with Sony’s strategy.

    Also, isn’t the price cut a $200 12GB PS3? Now, if they had a $150-$200 PS3 with a +200GB HDD and maybe even a downloadable game like Uncharted 3… then I’d be interested.
