Microsoft exec “guarantees” graphical superiority for 360 titles

Talk about PR BS.

I’ve both an Xbox “Classic” and a 360. And the 360 titles are not “superior” to its own predecessor. While I love the 360 for its Media Center integration, the games are underwhelming. I’ve yet to see a game that really takes advantage of the supposed advanced architecture.

The battle against PS3 will definitely be interesting. I believe one of the keys will be how backwards compatible the PS3 will be w/ the immense base of PS2 software. The 360 is sub-optimal in this area and perhaps is an exposed flank.

We’ll see.
