Activision: “Xbox One is Game Machine First and Foremost”
Activision Publishing boss, as a gamer, is excited for it.
After the Xbox One came under attack from all quarters regarding the lack of games, Activision Publishing head Eric Hirshberg stated to VentureBeat that, “it’s a game machine first and foremost.
“I don’t think competition for different forms of entertainment in the living room is anything new. People can watch TV in their living rooms now. People can listen to music in their living rooms now.
“There’s a false divide that gets created in people’s minds sometimes, as though hardcore gamers don’t also consume other forms of entertainment and wouldn’t appreciate those things being made more seamless and more integrated into a more elegant experience. I think that’s all that you’re seeing here. To me, as a gamer, I’m excited by it.”
Activision is currently prepping Call of Duty: Ghosts for release on the Xbox One, PS4 and current gen consoles, with the One benefiting from timed exclusive DLC just like its predecessor.
