CES: Don Mattrick Expects Xbox 360 to Lead in '08
You heard it right – Don Mattrick expects Xbox 360 to dominate in 2008. And in case you were wondering, yes it’s cool to rhyme.
Here’s a snippet of the internal memo Mattrick recently sent to members of Microsoft:
In 2008 the hits will continue to come with exclusives including â€œHalo Wars,â€ â€œToo Human,â€ â€œFable 2,â€ Alan Wake,â€ â€œSplinter Cell: Conviction,â€ and several exciting yet-to-be-announced titles. Xbox 360 will be home to the next versions of great franchises like Grand Theft Auto and Resident Evil, and we will continue to be the leading choice for sports fans, with the next editions of Madden and FIFA looking and playing better on our platform.
Seems like a pretty solid lineup for ’08, especially for Splinter Cell and Fable fans! These are definitely some of the top-shelf games expected on the Xbox 360 this year, so he may have a point.
Regardless of how you look at it, 2008 is set to be one of the best in gaming history! 2007 saw more titles than ever released over a holiday it seemed, so if ’08 can follow that lead, us gamers will definitely come out on top!
