The heavy entertainment focus of the Xbox One reveal event led to some backlash from gamers. However, President of Microsoft Interactive Entertainment Business Don Mattrick noted that the company is investing $1 billion in the development of exclusive games for the Xbox One, with 15 exclusive games ready for the Xbox One’s first year.

“We just ran through our [release slate] and counted the number of exclusives, and looked at the amount of money that we’re spending and the deals that we have, exclusive windows and [things to create differentiation],” Mattrick said. “I think, candidly, people are way, way under-indexing how hard we’re punching.”

“There are great hits, there’s innovation, and there are world class creators plugged in,” Mattrick added. “You know, I keep track of it all, and I hope everyone here does – we kind of look back at all the different years and at what we shipped, how many units have sold. There’s a lot of hyperbole about things, but I think we’re going to deliver.”
