Microsoft is riding high after a successful showing at this year’s E3. However, do they really have THE best lineup of games and exclusive content of any system on the market?
According to the staff of the Xbox Wire, it’s a strong possibility. Touting several industry awards they received after the convention, Microsoft is looking to finally get themselves back on track as a next-gen console leader. “It’s been nearly two weeks since E3 2014 ended, and the industry has reflected on the upcoming games fans can look forward to, including a great 2014 for Xbox One fans. With nine exclusive blockbuster games coming to Xbox One by this holiday season and others featuring content coming first to Xbox One, there’s no better time to be an Xbox One owner. The gaming press agreed, rewarding Xbox One’s 2014 exclusive games lineup with more than 60 nominations and 25 award wins to date, including seven nominations for the prestigious Game Critics Best of E3 2014 Awards, leading the industry for 2014 games.” They brag.
Xbox Head Phil Spencer also chimed in, pointing to the large pool of exclusives that gamers can only enjoy on the Xbox One. Spencer hypes their “…incredible display of games at E3 from across the industry and we’re thrilled gamers will have such a wide selection available this year on Xbox One, including “Halo: The Master Chief Collection,” “Sunset Overdrive,” “Forza Horizon 2,” “Ori and the Blind Forest.” Xbox One is the only place you can play these games along with creative independent titles and blockbusters such as “Assassin’s Creed Unity,” “Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare,” “Destiny,” “Evolve,” “Grand Theft Auto V,” and dozens more – making gaming on Xbox One unmatched this holiday.”
