Microsoft’s 360 software line-up is strong enough to hold off Sony’s first-party games this winter, Aaron Greenberg, newly-crowned “director of product management for Xbox 360 and Xbox Live,” has told Eurogamer.

As EG points out, Sony has Uncharted 2, God of War III, Heavy Rain, ModNation Racers, Ratchet & Clank and Gran Turismo 5 arriving in the coming months for PS3. Aaron’s not phased.

“I think if you first look at this holiday, we shape up really well versus Sony,” he said.

“Sure they have Uncharted and Ratchet, but if you want to play Halo 3: ODST, Forza 3, Left 4 Dead 2 or the GTAIV exclusive games you are only going to find those on Xbox 360. Then you have to add all of the exciting offerings we are bringing to Xbox LIVE with Facebook, Twitter, Last.fm and instant-on HD movies in 1080p.

“But of course if you look beyond this holiday you add in even more exclusives like Alan Wake, Mass Effect 2, Crackdown 2, Splinter Cell: Conviction, Halo: Reach and Project Natal. I truly believe Xbox 360 is uniquely positioned to deliver the leading games and entertainment experiences both today and tomorrow.”

Someone should get John Koller to say the same thing backwards. Full thing through there.
