Microsoft’s Xbox boss Phil Spencer once again promised to improve their own first-party line-up.
Now that “God of War” is released for PlayStation 4, IGN editor Ryan McCaffrey has pointed out that Microsoft’s first-party line-up on Sony’s games will not be anywhere near. He noted that Microsoft could reach this level, but that should take a lot of time.
Xbox fans are DYING to celebrate a masterpiece-level exclusive like God of War. Thing is, though, it took Sony 10 years to get to this point where their 1st party is firing on all cylinders. This work started in PS3 era. Xbox can/might get there but it's going to take a long time

Microsoft’s Xbox boss Phil Spencer responded by saying that it would indeed take some time to expand the first-party line-up. A high-quality and versatile line-up (with single player) is the goal according to Phil Spencer. That is also what the customers would earn.
Our hardware took time, our service/platform/BC took time and continuing to grow our 1P will take time. A high quality and diverse 1P (yes, with SP) built the right way is our goal and what our customers deserve. We can have similar results to what we've seen in hw and platform.
