Microsoft: The Xbox One launch line-up is just right

Ah, the old 'Goldilocks' argument

Microsoft has every confidence that they have chosen the perfect launch line-up for the Xbox One.

Their boss of marketing in the UK, Harvey Eagle believes that the Xbox One's launch line-up and will be supported by a great selection of titles due in the next six months or so.

“We have the right line-up and a good balance between some great third-party titles and first party titles” Eagle said. “But what is also really important is that we have a great pipeline of games coming after launch, which is something that perhaps the industry hasn’t done tremendously well over previous years. We tend to get very focused on the Christmas period. But I think it’s important to have a good line-up throughout the year. And with Xbox One, not only do we have that great launch line-up – which is imperative – but also some great games coming over the next six months.” Microsoft: The Xbox One launch line-up is just right
