Major Nelson: Xbox One was “not rushed,” every game at gamescom running on “final Xbox One hardware”
Xbox One has been a total shame back at E3 2013. Since then, Microsoft has changed a lot of their main so called features, making Xbox One a more buyable console than it was.
Yestedary, somebody posted a comment on a Xbox One news over on Reddit and he actually got an official answer from Major Nelson himself. The guy was stating that Xbox One is being rushed “to match Sony”.
Major Nelson came with the following response: “The Xbox One program has been in development for years, so calling it ‘Rushed’ is incorrect. Did we have a few challenges between May and August? Sure. But we are working on our own schedule – not any one else’s. At Gamescom, every game in the Xbox booth was running on final Xbox One hardware. Every. Single. One.
That would paint a very different take on the being ‘rushed.'”
So we can grab from Major Nelson’s comment that this time they will bring actual consoles and not high-end PCs to run their games? We’ll have to see.
