Xbox One gamers are looking at a bright year ahead. However, for players who own a different console, this year may be the perfect time to shift to Xbox One.
GameSpot reports that Microsoft, the company behind Xbox One, is confident that this year 2015 has been a big year for gaming fans. Still, the company is optimistic that the Xbox One lineup next year could be even bigger.
The website quotes Microsoft marketing executive Yusuf Mehdi in saying:
“If you like to game, this is the year to get an Xbox. We have “Halo 5” launching. We have “Minecraft” on Xbox. We have “Gears of War”, “Tomb Raider”. The best lineup; next year will also be the best lineup. That’s led to really a great success on [Xbox].”
From the above quote, Mehdi is emphasizing how Xbox One’s holiday game lineup has been great this 2015. By claiming that the 2016 lineup could even be better, Mehdi is projecting that 2016 will be an exceptional year for Xbox One.
Digital Spy also recalls that Harvey Eagle, another marketing executive from Microsoft UK, said before that consumers–particularly the gaming population–will look at the Xbox One as the perfect console this holiday season.
While recent releases of the company suggest fan favorites, next year’s lineup also has very promising titles on its list.
According to GameSpot, releases next year will inculde “Below”, “Crackdown 3”, “Gears of War 4”, “Inside”, “Killer Instinct Season 3”, “Scalebound”, “Sea of Thieves” and “Quantum Break”.
From these titles, “Killer Instinct Season 3” has some news which fans can look forward to. According to Lazygamer, a whole new and improved Shadow Jago can be expected in season 3. The website reports that the character will be able to use more focused sword attacks which can translate to more damage.
Screen Rant is right in saying that although PlayStation 4 dominates the conversation in terms of next generation home experience, Microsoft is making its way to be at par with the competition.
Next year, 2016, could mean a major improvement for the Xbox One.
