Trending: Convoy raises $62M from Bill Gates and other luminaries to transform trucking industry with technology

Microsoft is getting the week started with a new Xbox One promo trailer out today and the video’s title is straight to the point: “The Best Games are on Xbox One.”

bestgamesxboxoneThe clip shows next-gen gameplay footage from a plethora of different games, but the problem is that just a few of the titles are actually exclusively available on the Xbox One.

Sure, Xbox-only games like Halo, Forza Motorsport and Killer Instinct are shown off, but other titles like Call of Duty: Ghosts and FIFA 14 only have exclusive content or early release dates on the Xbox One.

Then there’s a handful of gameplay from titles like Battlefield 4, Watch DogsAssassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag and Madden NFL 25, all of which are available on other consoles.

So, yes, the Xbox One technically has the “best games.” But a majority of those titles are also available on the PS4 and PC, so take the video’s message with a grain of salt.

Microsoft late Sunday night released the latest Xbox One game line-up, 38 percent of which is Xbox One-exclusive. Here’s the list in full:
