Microsoft to spend $1 billion on exclusive Xbox One games

It has been revealed that Microsoft will be investing around $1 billion into developing exclusive games for the Xbox One, responding to complaints that the Xbox One is not focused enough on the gaming experience. In an interview with The Official Xbox Magazine, Microsoft's Don Mattrick and Phil Spencer have provided some insight into what we can expect game-wise on the Xbox One.

Mattrick believes that "people are way, way under-indexing how hard we're punching" when it comes to games and the Xbox One, saying "there are great hits, there's innovation, and there are world class creators plugged in" to develop hits for the console. He hints that people will be wowed by their June 10 Xbox One E3 reveal, as a range of developers are creating interesting first-party titles for the console.

Microsoft has previously stated that the Xbox One will see a full 15 exclusive titles in the first year of the console's availability, including eight that are new IP. So far we're only aware of a few games for the console, including Forza Motorsport 5, Quantum Break and Ryse, but more will be revealed in just a few weeks' time.
