PlayStation 4 Won the Holiday But Xbox One Saw Massive Game Sales Boost, E3 Will Be Huge
Microsoft and Sony launched their new gaming machines back in 2013 and since then PlayStation 4 has been in the lead, with Xbox One occasionally popping its head it front.
Both companies have seen impressive sales numbers and even though PS4 didn’t even give breathing space to Xbox One this Holiday, both platforms are doing great individually.
Great hardware sales means better software sales as well, which is essential for industry’s growth. Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg has said that their console saw massive game sales boost last holiday. Moreover, he shared a good news with Xbox fans as he promised plenty of surprises this E3.
Our focus has been on having the best games line up anywhere and we have already shared a good preview of what our line up looks like in coming year. So I think people know that we are not stopping and in many ways we are even increasing the number of great AAA games that are coming.
When asked about Microsoft’s plans for E3, Greenberg added:
We are already starting to think about it, what we are going to do there. It will ramp closer to [E3]. My team leads a lot of the planning for E3 and we are excited about it. Every year we try to make it better and this year we will bring some more surprises to the table.
Microsoft’s 2016 is already pretty strong with a handful of exclusives coming to Xbox One, and with major multiplat support from third party developers. We are expecting to see Gears of War 4, Halo Wars 2 and ReCore among others. Sadly, Scalebound couldn’t make it to 2016 but it is better to delay a game then to rush it.
