Aaron Greenberg has been rather active as the year comes to an end, attempting to show people just how happy he and the rest of the Microsoft team are about how 2015. Earlier this month he even took to Twitter to celebrate not only the Xbox One’s success but the PS4’s as well. Now the company’s head of marketing is talking about how excited he is about the future of the firm and 2016 in particular.

He recently sat down for an interview with Dualshockers where he made it very clear he believes the lineup for 2016 is going to be even bigger than 2015. “We have a lot of great games, and even if you just look at what we’ve announced… Think about the fact that there’s both a triple-A Halo game and a triple-A Gears game in the same Holiday. We’ve never had that before, as far as I can remember, in the history of our business. Having Halo Wars 2 and Gears of War 4, I think it’s just gonna be an unbelievable lineup. And we’ve got more titles on top of that.”

“I mentioned Sea of Thieves, ReCore, Killer Instinct… and there will be more. There will be other titles that come from our id@Xbox partners, and we’ve got titles like cuphead, and Inside, and Below, and other big titles that we’re all anticipating. And then all the big third party titles.” He said.

When you look at the games the company is offering up, it’s not hard to envision a great deal of success.


Awesome Stuff that you might be interested in

    yes its going to be a very strong year, no doubt about that… every month microsoft is gonna remind sony they offer free bc of lastgen games. and sony are gonna sit there and tell lies they cant do bc. then use slogans like ‘for the players’ & ‘greatness awaits’ then pull out more garbage ps2 games they want you to pay for, LOL..

    • I only hope Microsoft doesn’t see the money Sony is making off of their fanboys that way and give us the shaft too — because honestly I’m already not impressed with the consoles themselves. Most of these games could run on last gen with a RAM upgrade.

    • Hermione Granger

      sony is pretty stubborn when it comes to the ‘no we cant do real bc’. but they are more than wiling to rent you your old games for 30 dollars a popp for a week on the psnow… or sell you your ps2 again… arrogant and greedy thats what they are..

    • I literally read this in Hermione Granger’s voice. Thank you. But you are so right! This is why I stayed Xbox, which comes close to decent actual backwards compatibility

    • Guest

      They aren’t in the position to gouge.

    • I’ve thought that before and they’ve proved me wrong, sadly. They’re already gouging hard on the digital releases and holding the prices up higher than new copies in store — and that’s across the board. I assumed this is because stores are motivated to move old product out, but then I got to thinking about how keys for digital copies in stores cost less than ordering online… but this is neither here nor there. Just MS isn’t a stranger to gouging, no matter what their market value. Take how much they charge for their operating system “upgrades” that are basically just bloatware

    • Kidd

      Xbox One hardware has so much to it that just right there Ms gave us so much for the price! Hopefully they decide to use it for the fanbase we are?

  • GHz

    next year is just around the corner and I’m excited to see more of Recore. I especially cannot wait to experience how XBLCloud and DX12 ver. 12_0 & later on ver.12_1 improve the aesthetics of games we play on XB1.

    • Xbox one 2econd gpu unlocking

      Yes our professional research teams have proven it’s DX12.1 now.
      GAF are in salty meltdown.
      Paying weak from launch is real and what we all knew.

    • Psionicinversion

      12.1 lmao there isnt a single AMD GPU on the planet that supports 12.1 12.1 is actually nvidia hardware

    • GHz

      That’s the whole point (Beta Tested In the Future). It was not just a slogan. That’s true. That’s the reason why MSFT didn’t want to talk about the feature sets. XB1 is 100% a DX12 box, supporting ver.12_0 & 12_1. It’s the only device out right now that can do this, with possibly NVidia cards. The important thing is that XB1 supports all of DX12 features via hardware. Believe it.

    • Psionicinversion

      so it supports conservative raster, ROV’s and Volume tiled resources??

    • GHz

      Here’s the slide.

    • Psionicinversion

      where is the slide from?

    • GHz

      Windows 10 Game Developer Overview presentation from GDC Europe 2015. Those who pay attention knw. Popular gaming media would never report this stuff because its not in their best interest. They cater to the popular kids (Sony fanboys)

      http://www.slideshare.net/jaimer/windows10-gamedevoverviewexcludingvideos

    • Psionicinversion

      hmm fair enough. well might actually get the xbox upto 1080p in some games. as long as they only use volume tiled and ROV’s, conservative needs extra fill rate so it would just cancel each other out and conservative would be more expensive overall

    • GHz

      Smarter coding, more efficient rendering techniques supported via hardware should do the trick. But its not all about 1080p, we’re talking scale. AI, material on screen, bigger grander FX etc. We need to separate future games from the games of last gen. 1080p is not a next gen feature. PC have been doing that for years. What’s important is getting rid of bottlenecks. Devs should have the space to build games like how they want w/o gamers harassing them over 1080p.

    • Psionicinversion

      yeah but native is always better than non native. Thats the thing though 1080p isnt a next gen feature and it cant even do that tbh. PC will be transitioning to 4K next year as well have the gpu power to do it and monitors are relatively cheap now

    • GHz

      It is. But the current state of gaming shows that a game with superior pixel quality, art direction can outshine a 1080p game that’s just a last gen res upgrade. But who cares right? It’s 1080p or go home. SMH.

    • Psionicinversion

      its not about that so much as your TV/monitor anything less than its native res and its starts to muddy up. The upscaler works ok but its not perfect by any means. no point is superior art when the picture looks like crap!

    • GHz

      “no point is superior art when the picture looks like crap!”

      I get what you’re saying, but does it apply to all games that run lower than 1080p? No it don’t. Yu have some 1080p games that are sharper n muddier, because its struggling to run @ 1080p @ a locked frame rate. You can have the image look better by going a lower res and implementing better lighting, and other clever graphical techniques.

      I get what your saying though, cause you’re a PC guy. With a great card you don’t have to worry about that nonsense.

    • Xbox one 2econd gpu unlocking

      Some DX12 games we will want in 720p 798p 900p only to prove Resolution isn’t important

    • Psionicinversion

      no you really dont

    • Xbox one 2econd gpu unlocking

      We will be asking for the division to be 900p

    • Psionicinversion

      youve got no choice lol

    • Psionicinversion

      just decided check out Fable Legends closed beta and im in haha downloading now. Lets see what dx12 can do!!

    • GHz

      A slight boost being that game is really a DX11+ game. Not from the ground up DX12. It only migrated to Dx12.

    • Psionicinversion

      yeah no games are atm but theyd need a brand new game engine really for it and thats the main hurdle. Multiplat devs like ubisoft and that will not make a new engine unless they have to

    • GHz

      Unreal Engine 4. It was built side by side with DX12.

    • Psionicinversion

      well it better be but still the big publishers… well DICE might do a good job with frostbite but i cant see ubisoft biting for a while

    • GHz

      We’ll see how it goes. Either way, if they want to stay competitive, they’ll have to upgrade their graphic engines to take good advantage.

    • Psionicinversion

      Well not really if xbox exclusive want to be competitive they have to be designed and look amazing. Ubisoft and EA don’t need to upgrade to get 100’s millions in earnings that’s the difference. Can guarantee Ubisoft won’t do it properly until the next console gen

    • Mark

      I just got accepted too! Lol

    • Psionicinversion

      keeps crashing on me in exactly the same part. You kill the stuff in the farm then go around meet the sorceress kill all that stuff, go around and then you some guy go through the bit that was blocked off see some Puck thing run off i follow it round the corner and then crash there

      Its interesting to see Fable off the app store run inside some kind of application space cus fraps doesnt work in it

    • Mark

      Dam I’m bout to download the Xbox version. Hopefully it doesn’t have the same issue…

    • Psionicinversion

      youll probably be ok they would of spent more time on the xbox version i reckon. Could be todo with the fact that my gpu doesnt support ROV’s and all that so unless it can be turned off might cause issues. But be kind of stupid to release a game only maxwell nvidia GPUs can run

    • Psionicinversion

      Ah its ok kept crashing with Inga the shield one so tried it with sterling and it’s working fine. Must be a bug with that character

    • Kidd

      Ha you wish you were Playing Fable Legends the beta has been closed till Spring 2016 LMAO You two Thought you were playing Fable Legends!! Ha

    • Mark

      Hunh? I just got a code from LionHead to download. I actually have the full 10GB on ma console…but I haven’t fired it up yet. I guess I’ll find out if you’re not lying tomorrow lol.

    • Mark

      Nice find GHZ. Somebody shoulda def talked about this. Phil did say “full” when asked if the X1 GPU supports DX12…..so seeing feature level 12_1 really shouldn’t be surprising. Thx brody.

    • Mark

      What do u make of GHZ’ Win10 slide? It’s pretty cool to see. However, some people keep thinking that those feature levels mean an instant boost to 60fps or something, when in fact, those features make games just look more amazing and fluid….your thoughts?

    • Psionicinversion

      Well it could help quite a bit in explosions or volumetric smoke etc like for instance Just Cause 3. Both console really struggle on that when theres explosions (which is most of the game) but if those explosions were voxels and then you tile streamed those voxels it can free up quite a bit of performance because instead of it needing to render the whole frame with that simulation going on it basically “wraps its hands” around the explosion and only tile streams that as thats the main thing that is changing alot. Nvidia did a good demo on it. Tbh all DX12 will do is help to stabilise the framerates on X1, sure you could up the detail level a bit but its all down to the game really

    • Mark

      Yeah I saw some stuff about voxels and how it accelerates particle simulation speed. It’d be wild to find out that Sea of Thieves uses Volume Tiled Resources for the water, instead of cloud assist. That ish would blow my mind. Something’s def goin on with the water.

    • Psionicinversion

      stuff like water uses high amounts of tessellation on the surface as well, if you could tile it it would save on performance but youve still got the complex physics simulation as well so off load that to cloud render it using tiled should be ok

    • Kidd

      Of course it’s all down to the game!

    • Psionicinversion

      the problem is even the PC and laptop feature set says it features 12_1 and they dont. By all accounts AMD doesnt care about 12_1 so if 12_1 did appear just got to hope it appears in the 400 series which is kind of GCN 2

    • GHz

      “the problem is even the PC and laptop feature set says it features 12_1 and they don’t.”

      It’s showing devices and the version of D3D they supported leading to the newest one. New PC and laptops will eventually have this ability.

    • Psionicinversion

      Hmm well id take it with a grain of salt till you get proof of it in game tbh. They would of had to work with nvidia to add those features into an AMD GPU looks like because talking 3 years from xbox to 400 series.

    • Xbox one 2econd gpu unlocking

      Only we have The only certified DX12 Hardware.
      If we agree on professionally unlocking, we will have a 5TF.
      But playing a weak 1.3TF to give Sony the lead.

    • Psionicinversion

      you know hes just going tell you to stfu because hes not an idiot like you

    • Xbox one 2econd gpu unlocking

      We aren’t idoits, only we have the real DX12 hardware

    • Kinect

      They’re both idiots, just like you.

    • Xbox one 2econd gpu unlocking

      Reason why the NDA is in place.
      We still have to play the weaker system until Sony have recovered.

    • Kinect

      “Beta Tested in the Future). It was not just a slogan.

      Does Microsoft pay you to be such a delusional moron and a blind loyal liar?

    • Xbox one 2econd gpu unlocking

      LMA0FAF,
      We have seen shown a slide proving we have DX12.1 LOL

    • GHz

      For once I’m agreeing with you. You cant blame them for not knowing though. Popular gaming sites would never talk about that because many of them were feeding gamers B.S about the XB1. To talk about that would be admitting that they were wrong all along.

    • Kinect

      No, the ones who were feeding gamers BS was Microsoft and their slaves like you. You’re more concerned over Microsoft’s APIs and servers you know nothing about than you about because you’re a Microsoft shill, than you are about quality products or games. You fell for Microsoft’s lies so now you’re lying for them.

    • Psionicinversion

      prove it… show me the link

    • Xbox one 2econd gpu unlocking

      Our insider and professional research teams are right.
      Reason why we played weak and agreed with screen tearing on some games , all only to play weak. All Only too hide our 2nd layer

    • Psionicinversion

      second layer of BS?? where that extra GPU you keep banging on about or is it still phased out of reality so you cant see it?

    • Xbox one 2econd gpu unlocking

      It’s under the NDA we agree with because it’s to powerful. Microsoft is playing the good guy and will allow Sony to recover and keep it under lock out longer. The research teams have shown x-rays of our 2nd layer.

    • Xbox one 2econd gpu unlocking

      And our slide shows 12.1 the .1 allows our second GPU to be used if we agree on it.

    • Psionicinversion

      no it doesnt. it doesnt require some special api to get xfire working fool

    • Xbox one 2econd gpu unlocking

      That’s the layer unlocking code for the 2nd layer.
      Our research teams know about this stuff.
      Wehave MrC and Xteams that have done the work on it finding the details

    • Dotcum22

      Lol if you believe this b.s

    • Mark

      Ok Xbox One secondGpu, I gotta give u this one lol. I know what ur agenda is, but you’ve done some nice work uploading that pic, seeing it’s really from a recent Win10 pdf…..

    • Kidd

      Games Ps4 cant do!! Sony says they cant Believe how like backwards compatibility Lol be aware people to have a camera or video Recorder and catch Ps4 fans faces when they see new ips there so powerful Ps4 system cant do!!

    • Xbox one 2econd gpu unlocking

      We do have a 5TF when professionally unlocked.
      Scalebound and quantum break will show PS4 users this.
      +12 and we game on

    • Psionicinversion

      a slide that is completely wrong

    • Xbox one 2econd gpu unlocking

      LOFAO, are they salty

    • Mark

      Lol!

    • GHz

      Nobody was playing weak dude. MSFT’s schedule was that of 10yrs. They told us this in the beginning of last gen when they introduced the 360. Xbox One is advertised as a product that is beta tested in the future for the fact that it was released 2 years before the 10 yr mark. That was last Nov. It is the time that MSFT was to release its new OS, API & the new XBLCloud. XB1 wasn’t built for DX11, it was built for DX12, ver. 12_0, 12_1 and beyond. MSFT’s 1st party titles do not show any weakness in comparison to all games on the PS4.

    • Xbox one 2econd gpu unlocking

      We haven’t had our 2nd layer professionally unlock yet and playing weak until we do.Yes we have been told it’s 10 year plan and that’s why we have agreed it’s ok to play weak for a few years.

    • GHz

      That make no sense because it takes years to build a AAA game, and how can they build that game in Windows 10, DX12 when the software wasn’t even ready? Playing weak is to imply that they could’ve unlock these features since 2013 release, which we know is a lie because we just got the updates last month to make that possible. Think dude. + MSFT were making big claims from day one & got burnt because they didn’t have the data to back up their big talk.

  • Mr Xrat

    To be fair, it can’t be any weaker than this year. At least 2016 has some interesting looking new IPs that could be real curveballs.

    • GHz

      Plenty on both ends.

    • Kinect

      “Plenty on both consoles. We saw so many new great looking IPs”

      On PS4 yes, but not on the weak, underpowered, overpriced, Xbone with it’s trash online service, and no innovation.

      Bloodborne = New IP
      The Order 1886 = New IP
      Until Dawn = New IP
      MLB15The Show = Old IP

      Forza 6 = FLOP Old IP
      Halo 5 = FLOP Old IP
      Rise of the Timed Raider = FLOP Old IP

      Microsoft must pay you to be such a dumb, lying, loyal, c-nt.

    • GHz

      Fixed your message for you. You missed out some important details. 🙂 https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/49d4a09310cc8ed6c9b18f63a23292844af0ac0c051c7730c9c4cc696b53aa47.jpg
      You’re sooooo bright 😉 I mean all those 2016 games you mentioned. Keep representing PS4 fans. You do it so good 😀 LOOOOOOOOOOOL

    • Kinect

      lol Looks like you totally missed my point. You missed out some important details. What about 2014 and 2015 for Xbox? Where were the Xbox’s new great looking IPs in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015? You know, Xbox, the console you’ve been defending and worshipping the past ten years!

      Dumb, lying, loyal, Microsoft shill, c-nt.

    • Tech junkie

      You forgot to mention that bloodborne, until dawn and the order were all flops. the only reason people bought the show 15 is because they shut down the show 14 servers.

      Sony must pay you to be such a dumb, lying, loyal, c-nt

    • Truth™

      Also on PC

      Great that Sony have started following this trend. No need to buy a POS4 🙂

    • Kinect

      Microsoft slaves are still hyping up DX12, an API that doesn’t do anything for Xbone and was made to f-ck them. How dumb can these Microsoft slaves get?
