“Cross-platform experience is better on Xbox”- Microsoft

Posted By | On 21st, Aug. 2011

Xbox Europe boss Chris Lewis says that while exclusives are very important, and Microsoft is constantly working towards making more exclusive titles and promises that we will see more exclusives soon, he also says that Microsoft is constantly making sure that multiplatform games are better on the Xbox 360.

“[Exclusives] are important,” he told Eurogamer. “DLC windows of exclusivity are critical for us for differentiation… Exclusive IP is critical. You’ll see more of that over time. You’ll also see us, though, committed to working with people like EA and Activision on their cross-platform consoles to make sure they play better, and they integrate better across PC, phone and the console in a way other people’s just simply can’t.

“We’re also pretty confident the cross-platform experience is better on Xbox,” he added. “We enjoy great success with Call of Duty. Live is the oxygen that runs through our business. The experience users have through Xbox Live is a fundamental differentiator for us versus other platforms. FIFA is another one. Certainly here in Europe football is a religion. Our ongoing commitment to experiencing better and playing better on Xbox is partly a function of what we do with Xbox Live.”

Recently Chris Lewis also said that Xbox 720’s release could overlap with the 360’s life cycle. Earlier, he also said that Microsoft is confident the Xbox 360 can be the No.1 console worldwide.
