PlayStation 4 and Xbox One Console Exclusives: How Do They Stack Up?

It’s pretty interesting to see the split of the different genre games coming exclusively to each platform. The PS4 will have a lot of MMO, PC style games while the Xbox One seems to have more of a mix. (PS4, Xbox One)

stonecold3  +   940d ago
titan fall is also on pc and 360 so its not exclusive and probably be out on ps4 down track ?
BadboyCivic  +   940d ago
Too early to judge but as an Xbox gamer. I have to admit that Sony did a better job with exclusives than MS. Will the trend continue? Only time will tell
NeXXXuS  +   940d ago
Too early to judge? There are several articles about titanfall being released on PC as well. not to mention how M$ makes plenty of their games timed exclusives ever since the second half of the X360's life. Just take a look at Dead Rising for example. I think it's even more hilarious how during E3, Xbone showed titanfall being an exclusive title only to have articles released about it being on the PC as quick as the day after. Let's face it. M$ has a terrible history with keeping their games on their console and even telling the truth about their E3 conferences. It's gonna take a while to dig themselves out of the mess they've already gotten themselves into. And they've basically run out of "damage control" options by now.

also, this (I just thought it was hilarious):

how do they stack up....
I can assume they will stack up quite nicely in those cases they come in.

I know they will look good on my shelf next to all my current and prior console games.

Maybe not on the same shelf with my dreamcast ones those....those are special and dear to me.

okay, that was off topic i

I like the announced One exclusives a little better than the announced PS4 exclusives as a whole, but that boils down to personal preference and doesn't mean that I don't like the PS4 exclusives. Also, there are more PS4 titles that haven't been announced yet.

They both have great lineups in their own right, which is why owning both is optimal if you can afford it.

War Thunder, Planetside II, The Witness, Final Fantasy and Blacklight are not PS4 exclusives either--they can be found on other platforms.
HammadTheBeast  +   940d ago
There usually not counted either.

Either way, let's hold our judgements till gamescom. We have yet to see major games from Media Molecule or Black Tusk etc.
ExtoVert  +   940d ago
ya thats true. but one of the games, Planetside 2 is owned and produced by SOE ( Sony Online Entertainment ). ok its not platform exclusive but it is title exclusive, owned by sony
nukeitall  +   939d ago

So what is next?

Publisher exclusive? Genre exclusive?

This is getting ridiculous.

I don't care if it is on PC, because I don't have a powerful PC and I don't want to deal with the negatives of PC.

I'm gonna go play my games on my Xbox One/
PS4 and everyone can go f' off, because exclusiveness means sh!t to me. I can't play exclusiveness, I only play good games and I don't care if others can play the same game I do.

Entirely subjective.

For many of us, Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct, Project Spark, Forza and others are excellent titles, regardless of how desperately N4G plays their importance down.

Yeah, and Titanfall was their only fun looking game...

That being said, does one game really count as "stacking up"?

Lvl_up_gamer  +   940d ago
Forza 5, Killer Instinct, Project Spark, Quantum Break, Dead Rising and Halo 5 are all games that I felt looked great and fun to play.

Can't wait for them.



@ HammadTheBeast

Yup, it was a trailer...however I don't understand how a Halo 5 CG trailer teaser has nothing to do about Halo 5? Especially when you clearly saw a forerunner ship emerge from the sands. Then you go on and just speculate that it's for the TV series...Why would they show a CG trailer for Halo TV series which is going to be directed by Spielberg who's last Animated movie was Dinosaurs were're back in 1993 and An american tail in 1991 where Both were cartoon animated?

You are really taking a leap in speculation.

Clearly the CG trailer was for Halo 5.

LiarasBoobs  +   939d ago
Personally, I'm not interested in any of those. Maybe Titanfall, but I can get that for PC. Definitely not getting the Xbox.

Most of the games I'm interested in are multiplatform, like BF4, Destiny, Watch_Dogs, Witcher 3, Battlefront, GTAV, etc.

The Witness is also a timed exclusive and is coming out for PC, I'm pretty sure at launch.
Warframe and Planetside 2 are also on PC. So if you're gonna compare console exclusives with PC, then those would have to be taken off too. I, personally, game more on consoles so I look at it as what console can I play it on first.
Mkai28  +   940d ago
People are quick to point out Titan fall not being "exclusive". Yet more then half of these PS4 "exclusives" are for and already on PC. It works both ways sir..Just enjoy the games and stop being so defensive about some hardware that doesn't know YOU exists..

Xb1 has better exusives but im getting the ps4 because sony has shown more respectful to its consumers unlike microsoft who was being rude to its consumers
FanboyCrusher  +   940d ago
How are they being rude? As of now you aren't a consumer, you need to consume to be a consumer, and you didn't get the product yet. They've shown off great games, and they're ditching the DRM, that's about as friendly as it gets to potential buyers. Consumers of the product all seem to like what's being shown, and whats been improved.

The tone might have been a little off, but can you blame the guy for suggesting another product to you that falls under his company? What was he supposed to say? Buy a Wii-U? Start playing PC? Of course he's going to say 360! Just like Sony would have said PS3 IF they were in the same position.

Mkai28  +   940d ago
They only say these things because the "majority" on this site are followers and not leaders . Afraid to give voice on they're own opinion. So they would rather just join the mob and bash whatever they hate. Funny thing is half of these fanbums won't get neither because they don't have jobs or there parents won't let them have one..

I wonder if they remember this, hey the PS3 is pretty expensive, are you concerned. Sony: They will want one, even if they have to get 2 jobs.
ravens52  +   940d ago
Which ones are you talking about? I hope its zumba kinect! That blows everything out of the water. Or maybe crimson it looks so fun to control a dragon and shoot fire balls! Yes! Or maybe D4 with ps2 dragonball z graphics, niiiice. Fantasia rite? Ooooo ooooo minecraft. No cant be not with Zoo tycoon and zombies vs plants i mean come on the best exclusives ever! Ryse, anyone can play and beat it just take your time on the quicktime event or not either button you press executes an attack so really you can press whatever you want. Titanfall huh cant imagine that ever coming to ps4. dead rising...nice lol. It has to be quantum break the gameplay they showed was unbelievable! done there are too many great xbone exclusives! Let me jus throw below, killer instinct (the streetfighter/injustice/mortal kombat killer), project spark (lilbig?) and sunset overdrive in there as to not forget those awesome totally terrific exclusives.

As of right now I believe that the One has the better holiday line up. I am more interested in what they are doing than the competition even though I feel the best game this holiday is from a third party publisher.

But we have to see the full picture before that can be said with confidence. We still have Gamescon ahead of us so let's wait and see.

I didn't say to not buy an XOne, that's your choice. But if you care about gaming, why would you miss out on all the greatness that will come on PS4 by not buying one? I never said 'you would be dumb to buy an XOne,' I said, 'you would be dumb not to buy a Playstation.' I might end up with both down the line at some point as well (when XOne drops big time in price), though I am definitely starting with PS4.

I have yet to have seen an exclusive game I like on the PS4 so I think I would be pretty dumb buying a $400 console that has yet to show me a game that is worth the purchase of a PS4.

I will be purchasing an XB1 since it's features far outweigh what the PS4 has as well as so far the games.

To me, it's pretty dumb to buy a console that is limited to only playing games in this day and age over a console that does so much more as well as play games.

You ain't doing anyone a favor and you aren't gonna get a cheque from sony in the mail.

Meh...Naughty Dog are great developers and their games are good, but I wouldn't say they are great.

Uncharted 2 was great but 1&3 were let downs. The Last of Us is a great game, but the story is extremely cliche and the gameplay is extremely repetitive. I feel all I am doing is crouching, listening for the contaminated, sneak up behind them and shiv them in the back. Wash, rinse, repeat.

The voice acting (Joel in particular) is really well done. Really enjoy that character.

It's not about what exclusive these consoles have now, but what they'll be releasing throughout the lifetime of the system. Sony has absolutely won me over with their commitment to bring unique and quality games to their system. Whereas Microsoft made sequel after sequel for mega selling shooters like Halo and Gears of War, Sony took risks with games that they were uncertain would be profitable, like Heavy Rain and Journey. Personally, as a gamer I want a wide variety of experiences, and I know Sony offers that in spades. Admittedly, Microsoft really surprised me with some of the exclusives they announced at E3, but the verdict is still out as to whether they'll continue supporting new games or if the new games investment tapers off after the launch window.

I know Jonathan Blow has said a lot of negative things about Microsoft lately, but I thought that The Witness was only stated to be appearing on Sony's console first. I don't think it has ever been officially declared a console exclusive.

Since I am buying a PS4, I don't need to worry about it personally, but fair is fair...despite the current animosity, I think it will still wind up on the XB1 eventually. Of all of the games in the article, that is the game I care about the most, so I have been paying attention.

I only care about exclusives that have a shipping date. None of the 2014 and beyond exclusives should count because they are vaporware.

Games like alan wake, too human, and killzone 2 were delayed years before they shipped.

Last guardian and agent still haven't shipped. And FFXIII Versus got renamed to FFXV and became multi-platform.

Wow Xbox fanboys forget how PS3 produced some of the best games this gen while their 360 was left to dust. Sony has Naughty Dog, Santa Monica Studios, Sucker Punch, Media Molecule, Quantic Dreams and so much more. PS4 is also easier to develop for. Add in the huge support of indie games as well.

I remember the PS4 supposedly having the better exclusives, what happened?? Microsoft always seems to get the last laugh.

The XboxOne has some nice looking exclusives although I think that Titanfall's graphics aren't all that.

On PS4 it is Deep Down that most impresses me.
A very nice trailer in what is the only example where a games with dragons as a main hook has interested me.
