After the official announcement of MOVE by Sony and the results of NPD, I had to see what was on Aaron Greenberg’s mind. So I asked him about Sony’s new MOVE system, what pushed 360 sales for February and the thoughts of seeing God Of War 3 quality graphics on the 360. Here’s his response:
TBb: What do you think of Sony’s MOVE system in comparison to Natal?
AG: Xbox 360 has a strong history of innovation. Halo, Xbox LIVE and instant-on 1080p HD. With each of these, we had our sights set on the future – and it paid off for us, the industry and Xbox 360 owners. We are doing it again with “Project Natal” on Xbox 360. We believe controller-free experiences are the future of gaming and entertainment. Only “Project Natal” makes YOU the controller, putting you in the middle of the action and in complete control. Jump and your Avatar jumps. Speak and characters respond. Combined with Xbox LIVE, “Project Natal” will transform how you connect with your friends, family and entertainment – as only Xbox 360 can do.
TBb: What do you think caused the sales jump for Xbox 360 in February?
AG: I think it was a combination of our leading portfolio of exclusive blockbuster games, industry leading online experiences over Xbox LIVE and high anticipation for the release of “Project Natal” for Xbox 360. What makes us special is that we are doing all of this at a great value, starting at just $199. As you know, consumers vote with their dollars and these results are further proof that this will be the biggest year in Xbox history.
TBb: Do you think games like God Of War 3 can be done on the 360?
AG: We have proved over the years, that all games can be realized on Xbox 360. Just look at titles like Final Fantasy XIII, Forza Motorsport 3, Gears 2, and Modern Warfare 2 on Xbox 360? These games and our leading online experiences demonstrate that Xbox 360 is the most powerful games and entertainment console in the market today.
