Xbox boss Phil Harrison has confirmed that Xbox One’s cycle will last more than a decade, speaking in the first session at this year’s Eurogamer Expo today.
Harrison confirmed Xbox One is on a “more than ten-year journey.” The console releases on November 22.
After dropping new Kinect details, the Microsoft exec also showed off Xbox One’s Upload Studio, which allows users to record, trim, record additional footage and voice-over for clips using Kinect, and upload and share with whoever they wish. If you see a game you like the look of on someone else’s upload, you can easily pop over to the appropriate game-page and get buying.
“We think this is a powerful virality tool,” said Harrison. Users will be able to apply to become “anchor tenants” of the Xbox One upload channel.
ID@Xbox, Xbox One’s indie development programme, was also featured in the talk.
Harrison reiterated that Xbox One will launch with 23 games, 11 of which are billion-dollar franchises.
Harrison’s presentation is the first in a series of live sessions at Eurogamer Expo this week.
Other highlights today include Forza 5 at 1pm and The Evil Within at 5pm.
Friday highlights include David Cage talking about Beyond: Two Souls at 1pm, and a PlayStation 4 indie showcase at 4pm.
Saturday kicks off with The Witcher 3 at 12 noon, followed by Watch Dogs at 1pm and Batman: Arkham Origins at 2pm.
Sunday opens with Peter Molyneux talking about 22Cans latest game Project Godus, as well as a look at Murdered: Soul Suspect at 2pm and a talk about the future of the Ouya at 3pm.
You can see the complete schedule over on the Eurogamer Expo site. There’s a pretty ridiculous amount of good stuff.
