Microsoft to Plough $1 Billion in Xbox One Exclusive Games

Xbox One
You think Microsoft doesn’t care about its core customers? You’re probably wrong.

Official Xbox Magazine recently reported an interview with Microsoft’s Phil Spencer & Don Mattrick according to which Microsoft will invest around $1 billion entirely on new exclusive games for their recently announced console – Xbox One.

Lately, Microsoft had to face a lot of hate and blaming from its hardcore gaming enthusiasts who have been utterly disappointed by their next-gen console called Xbox One. Well, don’t give up your hopes guys because the company is planning on releasing a large number of exclusive games, content and deals.

What he said is, “We just ran through our [release slate] and counted the number of exclusives, and looked at the amount of money that we’re spending and the deals that we have, exclusive windows and [things to create differentiation].” So that means there is still a shred of hope for Microsoft.

Mattrick also kind of complained about consumers undermining the company’s policies. To put into his words, “I think, candidly, people are way, way under-indexing how hard we’re punching.”

We did come to know that Microsoft is planning on launching 15 exclusives for Xbox One during its first year of release and 8 out of them would be new IPs.

Mattrick further added that he is currently keeping track of everything and they’ve got a huge amount of content to deliver. “There are great hits, there’s innovation, and there are world class creators plugged in. You know, I keep track of it all, and I hope everyone here does – we kind of look back at all the different years and at what we shipped, how many units have sold. There’s a lot of hyperbole about things, but I think we’re going to deliver.”

It’s all going to be revealed at E3 2013. At last we would know what Microsoft has in store for the gamers around the globe.
