It’s no secret that Xbox One didn't match up to the competition during the current-gen console war. The majority of the blame can be directed toward the lack of good first-party video games from Microsoft compared to Sony's offerings. However, it looks like Microsoft may have learned from its previous mistake and is better prepared this time around.

Phil Spencer, Head of Xbox, recently gave an interview with IGN where he talked more about Xbox Series X and shared his confidence in the console. He claimed that launch line-up is not that important for a console, rather a constant supply of new games is. "It doesn’t really help somebody to have eight games launched on one day, and I think you can pace those out,” he said. You can watch the interview below.

Spencer wants Xbox Series X to have more games spread across the year rather than multiple games released at the same time. And honestly, it makes sense. The next-gen console will be getting Halo Infinite as its launch title, while other great titles like Senua’s Sage: Hellblade 2, Cyberpunk 2077 and Watch Dogs Legion will come over time. You can also play all the Xbox One titles ever released thanks to the impressive backward compatibility offered by Series X.

“Our first party organization that works with independent studios to ship games under our first-party brand and we unannounced signed things there that we are really, really excited about and that teams really found the rhythm in terms of how they’re working on these games and getting the quality and the shipping.” Spencer said in the interview with IGN. “So, I’ll just say that [you] are going to hear a lot more from us in the game space. I know I’ve been saying that for a while, but it's just the math now says that we have to announce things almost every time we’re on stage, new things, otherwise were gonna be shipping games without ever announcing them.”

The actual retail price for Xbox Series X has not been announced just yet, it’s obvious that Microsoft is waiting for Sony to announce first. Both new consoles are set to launch in the 2020 holiday season, assuming there are no delays.
