Microsoft announces Xbox One’s games line-up -- 38 percent of the titles will be exclusive

The Xbox One has had a lot of press since it was first announced back in May, with most of the coverage concerning the ever changing details of the console -- the removal of the DRM features, the backtracking on needing Kinect to use the device, the dropping of eight of the planned launch countries…

While the Xbox One might be a very different animal from what was originally revealed, one thing at least remains the same -- the console will play games. And today Microsoft revealed the list of titles available for the console.

In a new blog post, the Xbox Wire Staff introduces the list, saying, "At Xbox, we’re all about delivering gamers the best games. And one of the most-asked questions we get from gamers is 'what games are coming to Xbox One?' The list of global developers working on Xbox One titles is diverse, and includes renowned studios 343 Industries, Access Games, Bungie, Capy Games, Crytek, DICE, EA Sports, Infinity Ward, Insomniac Games, Kojima Productions, PopCap Games, Respawn Entertainment, Turn 10 Studios, Ubisoft Montreal and many more".

Microsoft also reveals some interesting details: 38 percent of titles are exclusive to Xbox One, 37 percent of titles are brand-new IP, 44 percent of titles will include either timed or exclusive content to Xbox One and Microsoft exclusive titles received 272 award nominations and 111 wins at E3 2013.
