Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg has stated that today Xbox One reveal was about the console and its features, which meant that games were put second. However, he did announce that Microsoft will focus on the games coming out for the Xbox One at it's E3 Press Conference.

"We probably right now aren’t talking about [games] maybe as much as we should, because we’re talking so much about what’s new," said Greenberg. "People know we have gaming, and so we’re talking about entertainment and TV and all of the other things that we’re doing."

"But, when we go to E3 you’ll see us go almost all gaming, and that’ll be our main focus there," Greenberg continued. "We know it’s like us being musicians, and that’s the rock concert – people don’t want to hear slow songs, they just want rock, so we’re giving them rock for 90 minutes. And we’ve got a lot of games, and I would say our third party relationships are the tightest we’ve ever seen."

Microsoft's Don Mattrick at the reveal today did say that Microsoft Game Studios is planning to release 15 exclusives for the Xbox One in its first year. Two of these games were revealed today, Forza Motorsport 5 and a new IP from Remedy Quantum Break.

Everyone is jumping the gun here... EA showed 4 sports games, battlefield 4 was confirmed, everyone is forgetting Watch-Dogs, Assassins Creed, Forza, Quantum Break, Destiny, other games I cant think of because there is a good amount... Not to mention the 15 exclusives,8 new IP's to be shown at E3... They actually showed more games then the ps4 reveal.... This will get thumbed down a lot, but, it's the truth. Xbox ONE's problem will be having TOO MANY games at launch.

We want console for games. If I want all those skype, NFL, netflix i would get Smart TV not PS4 or Xbox One. Games should be main focus.

I know Microsoft wants the 360 to be an all in one box, but....I'm not impressed. I'm not buying so I can use it as a HUB to switch between TV and a Movie, you can just plug a PC into a TV, or buy a $100 HUB and get better results. I want a .....what a stupid name, a one, for games primarily.

ironmanDX (on 22 May 2013)

Not going to wait till E3 to judge? They showed us a new IP, EA showed 4 games and then there was Forza and CoD? Everyone is just forgetting Watch Dogs, Assassin's Creed, GTA..... It has a good amount of games already excluding the 15 exclusives launching first year. Why is everyone so anti-one? No games? LOOK!

LOL, 15 exclusives over 2 holidays seasons isn't THAT much. Plus how many will be good? 360 released with Perfect Dark Zero and soon after N3. Both games are bad, but they still count as exclusive games do they not?
