Post Xbox One Launch - More Games to Come

Harvey Eagle, marketing head at Microsoft UK has stated that Xbox One has the "right" launch line-up. Sony had earlier called PlayStation 4's launch line-up the "best."

Eagle also promised that there will be a lot more games, which are in the pipeline for the next six months after the console's release on 22 November.

"We have the right line-up and a good balance between some great third-party titles and first party titles. 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," Eagle told MCV.

"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."
