The PS2 actually had a very strong launch at launch. A lot of which were exclusive.
Most other consoles I agree. Not the OG Xbox (Halo CE) mind and and definitely not the PS2. He was a bit hyperbolic though. The new Series S/X lineup has one of the weaker Xbox launches in recent history - particularly if you count new first/second party or exclusive third party games.
I mean, they had Halo Infinite but needed to push it back. I would rather have a delayed game than a botched release. It would be silly of Microsoft to delay their system until the lineup is larger considering games like Assassin's Creed Valhalla and a few other games are getting more hype for next gen.
