Microsoft’s Kudo Tsunoda: No Way Competition Can Stack Up to Exclusive Xbox One Content This Holiday

Tsunoda “super excited” about the variety of content coming to Xbox One.

Posted By | On 11th, Sep. 2015 Under News


Fable Legends Xbox One

Microsoft’s Kudo Tsunoda has never been one to mince words. This was the case when he was creative director for Kinect and as corporate VP, he’s since been hyping up HoloLens and Rare’s upcoming Sea of Thieves. In conversation with GamesRadar, Tsunoda talked about the challenges the Xbox One has overcome and how it will look to grow in the next six months to a year. Unsurprisingly, the console’s excellent Holiday line-up is a major contributing factor to that.

“You can see that what we’re focused on is just delivering high value for our gaming fans – and I think a big part of that is just listening to fan feedback, which we’ll always continue to do. I think it’s amazing, and this is just a job that you can see us doing in things evolving here at E3; the amount of big, blockbuster, exclusive titles that you can get this holiday on Xbox is just stunning. I mean, it’s really amazing – I think if you look at our competition there’s no way that people can really stack up with our exclusive content, and that’s an amazing part of what we’re doing at Xbox.

“And then stuff that I’m just super-excited about is the variety of content. Backward compatibility obviously is huge value for people, and we’ve got our blockbusters, but then you also see titles that really have a different look and feel to them – like Gigantic, a very different-looking game but super fun; ReCore; our awesome ID@Xbox games such as Cuphead. I think our exclusive content, the variety of gameplay that we’re able to provide people on Xbox, and then of course, the high value that comes with enabling things like backward compatibility and listening to our fans – I just think that’s where Xbox really shines.”

The PS4 still continues to dominate in terms of console sales worldwide but there’s no denying that there are some great games arriving for the Xbox One this year. What do you think of Tsunoda’s views? Let us know in the comments.

    Kudo is absolutely right!!! I love his aggressive attitude it shows confidence and belief in their product. Microsoft needs this in their campaign against the competition. Anyone who wants to disagree because of delusion please do. I need a good laugh.

    • Agent_Blade

      They got good stuff this year no doubt. Only game in interested in is Forza 6. The other games are nothing to me.

      I’ll be to busy playing Battlefront and Fallout 4 to care about Halo, Tomb Raider, or the lame version of Fable. Also just like I told the guy above, Sony has far more exclusive content coming to its console then MS or Nintendo put together.

      I agree Xbox will have the best lineup this year but I bet big time that this holiday season PS will still outsell Xbox. Maybe in October though. XB will outsell PS cuz of Halo. But other then that nope.

    • Mark

      Well even if they outsell the Xbox, we as consumers don’t play sales, I always thought we buy our systems for exclusives. Granted, Microsoft had a nasty drought the first half, and many Xbox fans were on Phil and Aaron’s twitter complaining. We spoke up, and Phil acknowledged the error. It seems they’re listening with them releasing Qbreak and Recore early next yr.

      Now all I’m hearing is how Sony will still outsell the X1 with pretty much multi-plat bundles, like that’s to be applauded or something. Not attacking u, but as gamers, shouldn’t both companies be held accountable when they have droughts? We should all be pushing both companys.

      If the Fallout bundle outsold every PS4 bundle, and Xbox fans were posting it as a bragging right, would u not be confused as to why they do it, as if it’s an exclusive?

      This article’s about exclusive content, not sales. I’m just wondering why you’d mention that. Personally I’d dislike if Microsoft leaned on multiplats, I want triple A’s.

    • Deeboy

      Well said. I was gonna respond to his comment but then I read yours and that about sums it up. Thank you.

    • Mark

      Yeah, these next 16 months are gonna be memorable for the X1.

    • Deeboy

      Yes indeed and I will be sooo broke with a smile on my face LOL.

    • GHz

      Well Said!! 😉

    • Mark

      Have u seen this? Xbot1 will throw up when he sees it.

      Well you are an anomaly because majority xbox fans bought xbox for their exclusives. And Ive looked at the list of ps4 exclusives pple keep passing around on the net and further research shows that they are small Japanese games that run on vita or high def ports from as far back as 9 years ago. Its a strange list if you ask me. The big games for next year for PS4 is uncharted 4, Horizon Zero (if that don’t get delayed) Shenmue if you want to count that, And a ps3 port with that flying dog with a beak & feathers. It looks like a AAA ps3 puzzle game from the gameplay. Everything else are mostly vita ports from last year and beyond. PS4 is a great system if you are a die hard Sony fan and that’s cool. Just like XB1 is a great system if you are a die hard xbox fan and that’s cool!

  • such.wow

    Super excited about games that are coming next year and not this holiday? Eh?

    • Mark

      “The amount of big, blockbuster, exclusive titles that you can get this holiday on Xbox is just stunning”. U were referring to Kudo? I’m confused.

    • such.wow

      The “And then stuff that I’m just super-excited” part. Games that aren’t coming this holiday, they are next years games.

    • Mark

      Well of course he’s excited for next ALSO. As is most Xbox gamers. He’s pretty much saying he’s excited for; Halo, Forza, Tomb Raider, Gigantic, and then in 2016, Qbreak, Crackdown etc. Don’t see anything unreasonable about that.

  • GHz

    +1 Extremely happy with my overall Xbox One experience. 🙂

  • Tech junkie

    Loving every minute I’ve logged on Forza 6. Night racing is so much fun. I love how much I hate the puddles in the rain

    • otherZinc

      Absolutely Agree!

      I bought the Ultimate Forza Motorsport 6 download as well, just to play early. Not to get ahead, just to play. I can’t wait to get home, I’m playing all night. I have 130+ Achievement points.

      And with Gears, Halo 5, Fable Legends Tomb Raider, & the above mentioned Forza Motorsport 6 @1080p 60fps Locked; how can anyone argue Exclusive Content?

    • Denney Masters

      I’m an Xbox gamer and only care about one of those games Forza 6. For me Metal Gear V, Fall Out 4, Black Ops 3 Destiny taken king, Star Wars and Need for speed will be the best. Halo is past it, Never liked Fable or Tomb Raider.

    • ShoNuff

      That makes complete sense considering you don’t like the xbox

    • Mark

      Haha

    • 2econd gpu unlocking

      +12

  • Papi1on

    This should be obvious to anyone who isn’t a fanboy.

  • Starman

    Sony haven’t even tried this holiday season, though with the unrelenting sales they don’t have to. Sometimes it better to be a customer for the side that’s desperate to impress. Xbox has by far the best features and games now.

    • Agent_Blade

      And with your comment I’d like to also say that I hope you keep underestimating Sony exclusive content too. Just because they don’t have much exclusive content to release this year doesn’t mean Xbox will have the best game and features in the long run.

      Plus they have much more to announce at TGS, Paris Games week, and at the PS Experience. There is so much exclusive content coming to PS it’s almost impossible to keep up with the sheer amount.

    • Papi1on

      You’re agreeing with him & yet arguing against something he never said at the same time.
      Makes you look very insecure.

    • Agent_Blade

      Think what you want but I assure you as a fan of Sony, Nintendo, and MS I have nothing to be insecure about.

      Also about the “arguing against something he never said” I speaking to every delusional XB fanboy in this comment section. And since you decided to take time out of your day to reply to my comment of a reply to someone else that must mean that I must have been talking to you as well.

    • Starman

      1. I was only talking about this holiday season. Though they’ve had the better exclusives the previous 2 as well.

      2. I’d take Gears, Halo, Forza over the dozens of exclusive indies on PS4. I’m sure they’re fun but I’d still have my Sega Megadrive if that’s all I wanted.

  • Kfal Balli

    This is the best I’ve seen from Xbox since before the kinect focus on the 360. I have a hard time putting the controller down. My wallet hates me right now. The only exclusive I don’t care for is fable legends, but I may be wrong about it. Halo is back to form and maybe even better than before. Forza is always fun. TombRaider will be great . I’m currently playing through Ryse for the first time. And I must say the reviews were completely wrong. The combat system is one of the most solid combat systems I’ve seen. The way you deflect arrows, traps and even executions based on button color is innovative. I really hope they make a sequel. I can’t wait for the Ori dlc. Then next year Gears 4, Sea of thieves, ReCore, Scalebound, Cuphead, Quantum Break, battletoads possibly. I remember Phil said some games will be delayed just to make room. Looks like there will be a lot more content on the way.

    • Booomshki!

      +1 for Ryse. Recently gave it a shot and couldn’t put it down until I finished it. Very pleasantly surprised. I knew it was going to look great with the awards it won but the reviews had me thinking it would be bland to play. How wrong they were.

    • Mark

      Story was gritty! And tell me u weren’t shocked at the visuals when Marius fights the guy with the skulls on him, while the Wicca man burns at night. That fight scene was so impressive.

      I think that’s why I see alot of Xbox owners wanting a Ryse 2, cuz the story and gameplay gore was gritty, but also memorable.

      I would luv to see a new Ryse with Achilles and the Trojans! Wow

    • Kfal Balli

      It’s amazing. Still the best graphics I’ve seen this generation which is crazy considering it was a launch title. I want to compare it to the first Uncharted, which was a solid game but needed more polish. They nailed it with the sequel I hope they can do the same if they make a Ryse 2. It seems the gaming media rated it poorly simply because of the bad press the xbox initially got. But it’s definitely in my top ten this generation.

  • Michael

    Tell us something we don’t know, kudos. Xbox one is destroying the competition where it counts and that’s the game content.

    • 2econd gpu unlocking

      Yes, at first we all wanted a TV focused system,
      Then we changed our minds later and ask for games.
      Phil has made It all been games,
      And Sony is about selling machines, Xbox is about games.

    • Cypher-Unknown

      Haha!

    • Agent_Blade

      Omg. Wow you really are a moron if you believe that load of crap.

    • Zubairu

      then why do Ps4 has far more software sales than the x1 ?

    • Psionicinversion

      Hmmm probably because its sold alot more. But game content has nothing to do with sales. He’s talking about how good the games are

    • Zubairu

      Okay then check the review scores and overall Sony exclusives score better or the same. And to be honest reviews don’t even care because those are opinions and not facts if a game is good or not. Both console have games and alot of games and many people like all those games and more people bought a PS4 and so bought PS4 games and seems that they like the games because the PS4 keeps selling more games. Not that i am saying X1 does not have good games but if you look at the facts the sales Sony software sales are really good. X1 sales btw to hardware and software but not as much as the Ps4

    • Psionicinversion

      Exactly in my opinion and a lot of Sony owners it’s exclusives are poor that’s why the sales compared to its user base are so low

    • Zubairu

      i see you have spoken to all the 25million sony fans or most of them and asked there opinion about there game libary? Got any proof or any facts or you are just typing it because you think it’s like that? or because you want it to be like that so you can feel good with your purchase choice?

    • Psionicinversion

      Ok so when exclusive sell 1-2 million out of 25 million owners is that good? Less thanks 10% of the user base. Doesn’t take a genius to figure out that people don’t like them

    • Zubairu

      Might be because not everybody likes the same games some people only buy shooters or ony buy platform games or indies or hardcore games like bloodborne. you got so much diversity in games. Check the sales figures for X1 games it exactly the same it’s not like every x1 owner will buy Halo! Not even close. So no again thats your opinion thats no fact at all that people don’t like the exclusives and if the exclusives sucked so much and X1 exclusives are so much “better” why dont people buy X1’s as much as or even more than the Ps4? Multiplatform games are almost the same on the consoles it’s not worth it to buy a ps4 because maybe a few games run better on it.

    • Psionicinversion

      because of the perception its better. the average consumer will go with the trend because they dont know what there doing also there friends maybe saying get a ps4 etc so they can play multplats like cod etc together thats why

    • Zubairu

      Might be for a few but again thats your opinion thats no fact mate. You are just trying to defend the X1 by bashing the PS4 for not having anything good but hype. I am going to believe facts and sales are facts and hardware and software sales are sky high with the PS4 and still is growing. Thats a fact you can’t deny the only thing you can do is come up with all kind of theories to weaken the fact but you can’t! The games are selling and what you think of them is a opinion nothing more plus all your theories why it’s selling you can’t proof it. Plus just check total released games PS4 vs X1 and check all review scores. You might change your opinion if you are no salty fanboy but just a gamer.

    • Psionicinversion

      theories… i own these so called good games on ps4 and they are average at best. i dunno why they get such good reviews, bloodborne deserved its score, and the order deserved its score the rest are to high in my opinion

    • Zubairu

      Well but thats your opinion right? I don’t like all the PS4 exclusives to but does that make it a bad game for everybody? I really disliked the order and you liked it. So what now? Because i dislike it makes it a bad game for everybody including you? no right?
      Bloodborne was really good best exclusive right now this gen for me. Until dawn looked like crap to me but after trying it i am addicted haha it’s so good and fun!
      MGS5 no exclusive game but blasts all those exclusives out of the water for me i won’t be playing anything else for a long time only maybe the witcher 3 it’s to good to stop playing.
      Driveclub fun for 1 month now when i look at i have a feeling i wasted my money. But end of the day thats my opinion and there are alot of gamers that would agree/disagree with me

    • Psionicinversion

      When i said the order deserved its score which was basically a 6/10 it deserved it. It was alright but nothing special. All the hype for months and months and it fired blanks on release. All the sony fanboys were hyping it like crazy then when it turned out like it did they buried it and changed there minds to save face.

    • Zubairu

      Haha gotta agree with you on that one! The graphics looked stunning still does but gameplay plus story really sucked. I know some people that really liked the order and i don’t get it but anything is possible. To be honest a 6/10 is a good score it should have been 3/10 or just release it as a free tech demo to show of the graphic possibilities of the Ps4. No replay value at all. P.T had more replay value lol

    • Psionicinversion

      yeah hahah well 6/10 is below average. If it scored a 3/10 it would be avoid at all costs haha 2/10 would be burn it where ever you see it haha. Graphics were good but it was really just a tech demo yeah

      the scoring system is weird like below a 5 dont bother touch it 5-6 bad 6-7 below average, 7-8 average, 8-9 good, 9-9.5 really good 9.5-10 is like amazing

  • Riggerto

    I’m still not convinced (as a non-PS4 or XB owner looking to buy one).

    I mean I admit I’m obviously not the main Xbox market… But if I’m not interested in AAA Gears and Halo type things why wouldn’t I get a PS4?

    To me it feels like 360/PS3 gen all over again. I had a 360 which I played most of the multiplats on… but after a while I saw all these interesting non-fps non-super soldier things piling up on the PS3. So I got a PS3.

    I imagine this divide will just get greater this gen as PS4 sales lead continues, Japan gets on board and Xbox gains more momentum in only the US.

    Cuphead looks fun though.

    • ShoNuff

      Honestly there are tons of nonsupersoldier games on both platforms. They just don’t usually get much press or attention

    • Mark

      Well, u got Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct, the Forza series, Project Spark, Smite, Gigantic, Sea of Thieves, ScaleBound, State of Decay, Fable, and more.

      It’s really just that Xbox shooters are polarizing…

  • 2econd gpu unlocking

    Sony keep telling us about sales,
    We just the play games instead
    And we game on.

    • Zubairu

      without sales you won’t be able to game on! then it will be closing shop time!

    • Psionicinversion

      MS as a company earns billions in profit per year. Sony loses billions, wonder whose going to close shop first!

    • Zubairu

      get your facts str8 sony is not losing billions

    • Psionicinversion

      Really go look at the last financial report. Losing money. The movie section and life insurance is kept separate but they are losing money. MS keeps on earning

    • Zubairu

      Yes i did and i think you should recheck it all. People have been saying the same thing about Sony for years they are going bankrupt and stuff. Check there full report and you will see bankruptcy is not even close. it’s just the same thing everytime people try to make Sony look weak blah blah blah bankruptcy they are losing money i am so salty because they are selling more than my x1

    • Psionicinversion

      Well that’s just like saying xbox is going die, it never will. Playstation will more likely die first. If MS get a home run next gen playstation maybe the next division up for sale. If xbox is more powerful than ps5 you’ll see all these fake playstation glory hunters switch back to xbox in an instant

    • Zubairu

      But i never said X1 or MS is gonna die and i hope they never will. And now you are just a salty fanboy that feels like he lost because the Ps4 is selling more. Mate just enjoy your games on the X1 it’s a very good console with very good games but i dont think i have to tell you that. why would you care about the ps4 if it’s winning or losing or whatever. The x1 is doing fine by itself without the need to bash the PS4
      The time of the PS5 and X whatever number they will come up is future fantasy thats not for now right?

  • Mr Xrat

    Shitnoda should start considering the other ten months of the year MS likes to neglect before he starts boasting about his rehash-fest of a lineup.

    But considering the Xbone’s fanbase consists primarily of children who need their parents to buy their games for them as Christmas presents, it’s the smartest thing to do.

      Take your meds cause your split personally disorder is out of control with all those fake accounts you sign on with. LOL. Why you worried about Xbox exclusives? We are getting everything we want this year and next + stuff we didn’t even asked for like EA access. We just might get OG Xbox back compact too. We get the biggest exclusives since Mario Zelda & Metroid for this year and next year. With new AAA IP to boot. We’re having a great time on Xbox One. We’re even getting games that a high end PC cant run. Would you believe it? Cause its all over the net. Its official.
      You can Keep crying, but you cant stop progress! :D.
      This how you probably look every time Xbox owners get great news. LMAO! 😀

      Nobody cares about your damage control. Your games are mediocre, EA Abscess is still a con and limited emulation isn’t rescuing the Dustbox. It’s got so bad you have to fake MS technical documents! LMAO!

      Keep waiting for games.

      All those accounts you created just to troll XB gamers and you’re suppose to be normal. You’re definitely a creep & a psychopath. You’d make a shrink rich. LMAO. But go on. keep entertaining us. We kinda like pointing @ the weirdo in a bubble. 😀

    • Mr Xrat

      There’s that conspiracy theory again. Not sure how I’m supposed to be angry at your mediocre games and maladjusted user base, but the amount of denial Xbox scum have had to coat themselves in just to partially function has created miracles. 🙂

    • GHz

      How many accounts now? how do you live with yourself knowing WHAT you are? I know you hate yourself cause you cant control your impulses. You give me the creeps. So you go online to harass gamers, inciting them to respond cause Its the only attention you can afford. But its something right? @ least it makes you feel like your part of a group right? Do you imagine yourself as a hero to PS4 gamers? How is it when the lights are off and you’re alone again and you’re thinking about your daily routine? Do you think that because you do it online that its not the same as traditional stalkers, psychopaths with split personalities etc? Its the same thing dude. You’re sick. You really are. There’s no other explanation. Yes you are angry because your actions speak for itself.

      I can just imagine you sitting there looking like this, trying to pretend that XB1 successes don’t bother you… http://www.imgbox.de/users/camuizuuki/Gifs/Will_Phone_Happy_Crying.jpg

    • Mr Xrat

      Hahahaha, another meltdown. Glorious. Bored of your AAAAA billion dollar blockbuster exclusives already?

      Xbone is and always will be a failure. Got nothing to be upset about. I got the outcome I wanted. 🙂
