XBOX ONE News & Update: Microsoft Says That 2016 Is The Turning Point For The Console
Although Sony has come to dominate this generation in terms of consoles sold, the launch of Xbox One S Microsoft managed to change the landscape a bit. Inside, the company they are aware of this and feel that 2016 will be remembered as a turning point for the Xbox One.
"The momentum is very important in the business as it gives stores, distributors and consumers confidence," said Harvey Eagle, Xbox marketing director in an interview with Games Rant. "We're giving them the confidence that they did the right thing. I think we'll remember 2016 as a turning point for the Xbox One."
So far, Xbox One S has been a blockbuster in several parts of the world. It will be in a few days that customers will know if the success trail will continue to another month. However, it is possible that November is also a great period for the brand, as the numbers indicate that Xbox One has sold more than the PlayStation 4 on Black Friday.
Harvey Eagle pointed out that Microsoft is poised to continue this momentum in 2017. The executive of the company named "Halo Wars 2" and "Sea of Thieves" as two examples of major games coming next year. Finally, Harvey pointed out that one of the major challenges facing Microsoft at this time of year is convincing more owners of an Xbox 360 to buy an Xbox One.
According to him, the backward compatibility program is a feature that can help make the transition between Platforms. Hopefully, the changes made to evolve Xbox One paid off. As people have realized, Xbox currently has a mysterious Scorpio project. This project is better known as the revolution of the gaming consoles. Perhaps, what Microsoft means by the "turning point" refers to Xbox One as the latest console-type series they release before heading to Scorpio series next year.
