Microsoft's Neil Thompson*
has started the bidding war to see which platform holder can sell the most copies of (Call of Duty
) Modern Warfare 2
He tells MCV
today,"We firmly believe that with Live services, the quality of the gaming experience on 360, and all the new ways we can get consumers engaged with the IP that Xbox is the best platform to experience this great game. I never use the word ‘own’, but it is ours to make the most of, and that’s what we intend to do. We firmly believe that 360 will be the lead sales platform for Modern Warfare 2
We await Sony's statement that "competition is healthy and that as long as the consumer benefits then that is the main thing... but PS3 is best" or suchlike.
