IE Interviews Ed Fries of Microsoft

IE magazine had a 1 on 1 with Microsoft’s vice president of Games Publishing, Ed Fries. Here is a sample of what was said:

ie: In terms of your first-party lineup, how satisfied are you with the titles that will hit the market in 2001? Did you get what you expected from your in-house development studios?

E.F.: I’m really proud of the depth and breadth of games our development teams will deliver at launch. We recently came off a preview tour with game editors, and there was a lot of enthusiasm for our launch lineup over not just how well these games played, but with the variety of titles we’ll have ready around launch. Halo plays like you’re in the middle of a science fiction novel–it’s destined to be a hit in the action category; NFL Fever 2002 is giving television a run for its money it looks so real; and Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee has great characters in Abe and Munch and massive environments that can only generated with the Xbox hard drive. With videogame titles like Project Gotham Racing, Amped: Freestyle Snowboarding, and Fuzion Frenzy thrown into the mix, our launch lineup looks simply amazing.
