Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Yusuf Mehdi: In the long run our console will win.

Found on GAF.


Yusuf Mehdi is the head of the Xbox One of Microsoft. In the E3 video game trade show was presented almost while archrival Sony PlayStation 4, but with a substantial price difference against.

Question. During E3 has given PlayStation 4 as a winner, especially for its price, 100 euros cheaper. What do you think?

 Answer. Which at E3 is not won or lost, but it will only play. We unveiled 20 titles for Xbox One, of which 17 are exclusive to this console. I do not think Sony can say the same. What I hear is that output, we are better positioned, with a complete value proposition.With the installed Skype voice service and Kinect motion sensor included. No use to me win a show, because the test will be the consumer. In the long run our console wins.

Q. Why is it always mandatory to have the console connected?

A. Not exactly. To play online you do need, to play in the cloud, too. It is designed so that if the connection drops keep things running even when you're offline.

Q. Is not it excessive to have to connect at least every 24 hours for it to work?

A. No. It is a mere connection to check who the user is and what is in your account. It requires a powerful connection. Just use a mobile for the check.

Q. How will the loan system and game sales?

R. Advanced and social. It may provide a title to a close friend, carrying at least 30 days on our list. In addition, you can share access to the catalog with a total of 10 friends or family members. This will, to go to each one of them, do not need to bring anything to play the titles of the visitor The collection will be in the cloud.

Q. Are we witnessing the last generation hardware?

A. I do not know how much life is left to record, but could have done without. I understand that there are moments when you want to have the physical product, as with children at Christmas, you do not have patience to download. Each country is different, with their customs, and other connections, so we decided to leave.

Q. What is the life cycle of Xbox One?

R. I dare not give a date. In the 360, which is seven years, you still have some time ahead. So we got a new one to think ahead on margin.




Oh ho ho, look at Mr. Confidence here.

They couldn't even win this generation with everything going for them.

On the other hand... it's a long road to one billion units. Anything can happen!

If you expected that he would say that they are going to lose, then I don't know what to say.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

10 friends can share one game, that's awesome. I still don't get why we had to wait for interviews to know that. Third parties can choose not to allow sharing could be the reason, right? I have to admit, Xbone is a better product now than what it was one week ago.

17 exclusives? That is one hella of a stretch.

HAHAHA!  But I really think that from a bussiness standpoint they should not focus on winning; they should be focused on performing great, and earning money.

Have fun in last place.

Don't tell me which console gamers will make the winner.. Tell me which console makes gamers the winners.
