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