Xbox Live general manager for Europe, Jerry Johnson, has told VideoGamer that Xbox 360 has the best games.
“I’ll come back and say that Xbox has the best games out there. It’s got the best first-person shooter games out there,” he said. “The exclusives we’ve had over the past years and what we had going into this holiday prove the point that this is still very much at its heart a gaming console.
“There’s nothing we’re going to change with that. You will start to see us, though, do things that are broader marketing and start to expose some of the things that are broader than just first-person shooters.”
“There’s nothing we’re going to change that’s going to not focus on those customers more. In fact, not just this year but in the next year, we’ll continue to do features that are targeted at that hardcore gamer. At the same time we are going to start to do things that appeal to both the hardcore gamer and the broader user, and continue to do things and start to do more targeted at the broader user specifically.”

Speaking to CVG, Microsoft’s said that a ton of stuff was dropped from New Xbox Experience. Hardly a shock, but there we are.
“There’s still a lot of stuff we want to do,” said Xbox Live’s Jerry Johnson.
“Half the things we wanted to do [in NXE] we cut out of the service.
“One of the nice things we did was this architectural change to make things more published and driven from the service. All of a sudden we opened up the platform to say ‘I don’t have to wait until once or twice a year to release something onto the dashboard’.”
NXE releases on November 19. What’s left of it, anyway.
