Why does this article compare exclusives at launch? Surely it should compare all the games that are available on one console and not the other? I don't know about you but at launch I won't be less interested in a game because it's not published by the console manufacturer.
ThatKanadianKid  +   662d ago
Well, some people might make their decision based on what's available right at launch. Some people will make their decision just based on that.
slimeybrainboy  +   662d ago
I know, that's what I'm saying! I'm just saying why not include third party exclusives too?
PockyKing  +   662d ago
Because games like these are usually why people decide one console over another. The majority of third party games are also multiplatform.
RyuCloudStrife  +   662d ago
the Xbox One up until today looks to have a better launch line up.. but both systems have great games coming to them http://gameolosophy.com/gam...
lastofgen  +   662d ago
because...you can actually pick these up at launch...when a good number of people will be buying these consoles.

There are launch game comparisons and there are other comparisons. This falls into the former. It's as simple as that.

even then only few of those exclusives shown by ms will be available at launch. This is what people seem to forget
Jaces  +   662d ago
why don't we wait to compare launch titles after ALL exclusives have been revealed. We still have Gamescom and TGS ladies and gentlemen. I, for one, am super excited for GC..mainly because I'M ATTENDING FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER!!

Yea, really couldn't hold it in. :D
PSVita  +   661d ago
I wasn't too interested in knack but after seeing that gameplay ill defiantly pick it up. I love platformers and this looks to be a great start for them on the PS4.

Launch titles don't so you enough look the games that are coming out next year. People hype about X1 launch exclusive you seen what happen on 360, MS stop making games. What if the 20 exclusive and the one's they make every year, is all the exclusive they have and they just make 3rd party after that look the 360. PS4 don't have the best launch you know the games are coming, maybe not at the beginning but you know they are coming.
ThatKanadianKid  +   662d ago
I wish Infamous: Second Son was a launch title, that and Killzone would have me set. On the other hand I wish Titanfall was a launch title on Xbox. So many options, ugh.
Relientk77  +   662d ago
Because you're mentioning games you wish were launch titles

I'll say Destiny also, to go along with the ones you mentioned
PockyKing  +   662d ago
Stop it lol. I'll add The Division to that list..
rigbybot127  +   662d ago
Titanfall, Metal Gear Solid V, Kingdom Hearts 3, and Final Fantasy XV...
Stevino123  +   662d ago
Titanfall is coming to PS4, it's a timed exclusive to Xbox One.
No_Limit  +   662d ago
Have anyone seen Titanfall on PS4???? Me neither. So it is exclusive until it is stated otherwise. Even if it is just Timed exclusive, it will surely help Xbox One sales in the beginning because true gamer that want to pay the game, you will buy a Xbox One and play it, waiting is not an option.

Didn't people say the exact same thing when questions came about regarding Bioshock, GTAIV DLC and Mass Effect coming to PS3? Thought so.
The_Con-Sept  +   661d ago
@ No_Limit: No footage of Bioshock, Mass Effect, GTAIV supposed exclusive DLC packs, or even Braid were shown on PS3. These titles were declared to be exclusive to the Xbox 360. They even produced disc based copies with "Only on the Xbox 360" printed on the top right corner of the box.

It is 2013 and the PS3 has those titles.

Titanfall is just another small project from a team that wants to make a profit. Eventually they will port it to PS4.

The word Exclusive no longer holds its definition. The only way to tell if it is a true exclusive is time itself. Making arguments such as yours are a fallacy. Titanfall is on a timed exclusive contract. We will get the game after you play it on xbone and get all the glitches worked out for us. Laters beta tester!
t3rrorc3ll  +   661d ago
And it will take 2 people a week to port and have running with more detail and higher fps.

Titanfall is coming to PS4, it's a timed exclusive to Xbox One.

Its on the PC.

I would have liked to see Deep Down be a launch title.
Kaiou  +   661d ago
Can we get FFXV on there too while at it. That would rock.
Shad0wRunner  +   662d ago
Doesnt matter for me.

Im buying my PS4 for the hardware, at launch. I already know im gonna have to wait a bit longer on the games I really wanna buy. Unfortunately, not many of those are launch titles.
illustratedDEO  +   662d ago
not to worry there is f2p games available day one
Omegasyde  +   662d ago
I respect your opinion. I am hoping that Oculus rift will be support on both consoles asap.

I really want to play outlast and daylight with a 3d viewer.
FanboyCrusher  +   662d ago
Buying a console for the hardware? I'm ashamed to be called a gamer alongside you. Hardware is nothing if you can't use it right (not saying that they won't) but we have consoles that still to this day hold value over over the competition of it's time, and they had the lesser hardware. The Wii come to mind? Yeah the most lucrative console ever made says hello. Hardware doesn't mean a thing, especially with consoles.
Shad0wRunner  +   662d ago
Said noone ever.

You ever see PC elitists saying "hardware doesnt matter"? No, you dont. And you never will. PC gamers will go out and invest thousands of dollars for the BEST hardware, just so they can play the best games with the best optimization quality.

Same concept applies to consoles. Hardware elitists care about how much RAM it will have, care about GPU and CPU and clock speeds.

Unless you really want to advocate running your games on a low end, inferior console...go ahead. Thats your preference. But I dont fall into that category.
FanboyCrusher  +   662d ago
By your stupid logic the PS2 was a turd just because the Xbox existed. PC is for the hardware junkies, consoles are for those who want to be able to hang out and play great games with a controller on the couch. You forget one thing, and you said it yourself. PC elitists care, just like the only ones that care on the console side are the fanboys. If hardware mattered as much as you think we would only play PC games.

Sorry dude, specs don't matter on console.
Shad0wRunner  +   661d ago
Sorry dude, I stand by my comment on hardware and specs.

Stick your head in the sand all you want, but without next gen hardware sporting next gen specs...there would be no next gen consoles or no next gen games...and there would be no evolution between the two.

Specs do matter. Like it or not.

You're going to be buying it for hardware??
That's your money and opinion, but I think that's silly. Hardware is just a part of everything.
Shad0wRunner  +   662d ago
I think you guys misunderstood me.

I am indeed buying the PS4 for the hardware, because I am one to go with the best tech on the market. Why buy a pinto when I can buy a Bugatti, lol. The games I want, wont come out until AFTER launch date. Second Son, FFXIV, Elder Scrolls Online, Thief, Diablo 3, and The Witcher 3. These are not launch games.

So untill they come out, Im buying my PS4...for the sake of the hardware. I might get Killzone tho.
xxxsiegezzz  +   662d ago
Why all disagrees? If consoles doesn't have to have good hardware why no to buy wii u then? or keep your old console?
I thought that the idea of new console generation was that the consoles have better specs not new exclusives that could have come to previous gen
rigbybot127  +   662d ago
Knack is my most-anticipated of the launch titles, though this is coming from a platforming man, so don't mind me. Other than Knack, I'd say the best is Dead Rising 3, which looks amazing. Killzone also looks damn good.
sincitysir1  +   662d ago
Mine too!!! I love games like these because it adds so much diversity! What once was the majority is now the minority so I take all these platforming action adventure games and love them! Preordered knack!
windblowsagain  +   662d ago
I wish there was a PS4 version of Motorstorm,lol.

But there is along way to go and hopefully lots of surprises along the way.

Launch titles are good and all, but it's not the be all and end all.

I also would have liked a Resistance game.
PockyKing  +   662d ago
Personally, I'm eagerly awaiting details on The Order. It seems like something completely new, and, if it includes werewolves I'm sold on the spot. I just really wanna kill some of those things cause they scare the crap out of me lol.
rigbybot127  +   662d ago
The Order is one of the main reasons I'm buying a PS4; along with Knack, a new Ratchet, and Naughty Dog.
Omegasyde  +   662d ago
I played every motorstorm and enjoyed them except for the rc toy game.

Hopefully Evolution pumps out that game next after driveclub and then works on a Wipeout racing game after that.
dcj0524  +   662d ago
Wipe out still looks better than most current gen games at 1080p 60fps. Man I can't wait to orgasm all over the next one.
sincitysir1  +   662d ago
Really?? That was my favorite!! I'm one trophy away from a plat haha
FlunkinMonkey  +   661d ago
Damn i completely forgot about wipe out! the last one was awesome and encapsulated everything the old school Wipeout was about (including the difficulty). Can't wait to see what futuristic backdrops we can looks forward to on next gen.
timotim  +   662d ago
Its clear what console has the better line-up this holiday. It doesn't matter to me what the sales are, I just want the best. IMO, not only does X1 has the more interesting games thus far, but its system and media capabilities make it a no-brainer for me.
illustratedDEO  +   662d ago
good for you ,enjoy dude.
Shad0wRunner  +   662d ago
Yeah...cuz you gotta have "no brains" to buy an XB1. LOL

Yeah...I went there. :P

Of all the launch day exclusives for both consoles, the one that I want the most is Dead Rising 3. However, I am getting a PS4, so I won't be able to play it. In the first year, almost every next gen game I want is going to both systems:
Destiny, The Division, Watch Dogs, Witcher 3, Lords of The Fallen, Dragon Age Inquisition, The Crew, Assassin's Creed IV and Mirrors Edge. The only PS4 exclusives I plan on are The Witness, Infamous Second Son, Octodad, and The Order: 1886. Maybe Killzone if/when it drops under $20. If I were getting an XB1, I would get Dead Rising, but that is the only exclusive I've seen so far I would buy, and I would still get all of the multi-platform games, and I would probably still be happy.

I think Xbox One wins the launch line-up battle. Although if Infamous SS was a launch title I wouldn't be willing to say that.

But I'm not buying a console based on the launch line up, I know Sony will have a better exclusive line up in the long run.
PeEsFour  +   662d ago
Actually its

Killer Instict
Forza 5
Dead Rising 3


Warframe (F2P)
Planetside 2 (F2P)
DC Universe (F2P)
Blacklight Retrobution (F2P)
Killzone Shadowfall

Let's see what Gamescom has to offer...

Taking the PS4 multiplats into account without taking on any for the Xbox. Fanboy alert. Mixing up quantity with quality, F2P doesn't mean it's worth playing.

Too bad you never played PlanetSide2 then... Its full of quality ;)

illustratedDEO  +   662d ago
Confirmed day one digis and pysical copies that I will be sure to pick up this holiday warframe,blacklight retribution, planetside 2, diablo3, killzone shadowfall,driveclub,knack and many more fresh new IP's announced.. for Gamescon,NYCC and TGS.CrossBone has hooked me on TitanFall but it aint for launch, the rest of those past time launch title are not as strong as the Sony launch lineup and couldnt grab my interest, so PlayStation 4 it is.Plain and Simple and a better deal service and price wise.

it all boils down to personal preference in the end... for me the PS4 launch line up is a tad weak... KZ hasn't interested me this gen, i tried just couldn't get into it so no interest in continuing with it, racing games are so so and knack reminds me of Kameo which was ok (all in my own opinion)

the only saving grace for me on the xbox one lineup is Dead Rising 3 (looks interesting and if it's like DR1 and DR2 will be fun to play.

Ryse is interesting but if it's as heavy on QTE as the demo showed then could be a killer, KI and Forza both do nothing for me, i'm just too bad at fighting games and racing games don't excite me

how do I get reported for trolling by stating my opinion? I simply said xboxwon... how the fuck is that trolling? This just shows this site is run by immature sony worshiping fan boys and proves if your opinion doesn't favor Sony you might as well look forward to an upcoming band. Need proof? look at the biggest Sony fan boys on this site. they are loaded with bubbles while the biggest xbox fans only have one or 2 bubbles. Hell, some Xbox fans like @greenzpower have even been band from commenting. you Sony fan boys need to get a life. Dam, it's just gaming for fuck sake. i know I will get another report but fuck it like I said it's just gaming not the end of the world. However, it's Sad that Sony sheep think no one should have a voice on this site unless you are praising Sony.

No kidding... Just take a look at the hidden comments.. Half of them are perfectly acceptable but aren't anti-microsoft..

So the fanboys come out and either gang up and vote them down, or more likely use a bunch of troll accounts..

Its pathetic.. Can't handle a different opinion? Get the fuck off the internet..

Keep voting me down.. I can create troll accounts too.. Just to piss you off.. Lol..

Truth hurts I guess.. But that's OK.. Just report me and wait for me to run out of bubbles before responding.. As per usual.. Can't handle people poking holes in your bullshit

Killzone Shadow Fall is the only launch exclusive that is doing anything for me.

I'll pick up a PS4 just before inFAMOUS SS releases and play Killzone-inFAMOUS-Watch Dogs-Battlefield 4 and try some of the FTP multiplayer games and try some of the PS+ games that come along.

I think Sony is going about it right. Think about how many people will be playing Shadowfall online since its the only game on PS4 or Xbox One that has multiplayer. Thats the only game im looking forward to on either system cept maybe Second Son.
timotim  +   662d ago
BF4? NBA2K14? Madden?, CoD?, Ryse? KI? Have you even thought this one through lol?

twdll  +   661d ago
I was talking about LAUNCH titles.
I was under the impression that COD, etc, will not be launch titles...
timotim  +   661d ago

Everyone of the titles I listed is expected to be launching with their respective consoles, and they all have MP. Even on X1, theirs Ryse, Killer Instinct, Forza 5...they all have multiplayer modes and work with system features like Skype, Twitch broadcasting, video uploading and more on day one. I have no idea where you got KillZone would be the only multiplayer game out of all launch titles but you are clearly wrong.
mochachino  +   662d ago
Best launch tittles and games in general are multiplats IMO.

Best exclusives so far are Uncharted, Last of US, Halo, Killzone, and Infamous, and God of War
Stevino123  +   662d ago
Halo is fucking dead man, just like COD. I hope y'all realize Titanfall is a timed exclusive, most possibly along with DR3, plus Websites are saying that the Halo teaser was a Halo 2 remake.
Plus, not a lot of gamers play Halo, most are COD Fanboys. I hope you guys realize, Sony has a contract with Ubisoft with some of the best games like The Division, Watch Dogs, Far Cry, etc. Xbox is doomed.
timotim  +   662d ago
So Halo 4 is the 8th most played game on Xbox Live right now. Their are two CoD titles in the top 5...to say they are dead is pure fanboyness as both are played more than BF3 and any other FPS you can name on any console. This includes KZ, Resistance or any other.

How is the Halo teaser shown a Halo 2 remake when that scene has never existed in a Halo game before...the focus on MC's hand holding Cortana (or what's left of her) coincides exactly with the events of Halo 4.

Lastly, every Sony fanboy attacked MS last gen for buying exclusive/timed content, now that Sony has some I guess that its now considered cool? What does it matter? They both will have their fair share...MS has an arrangement with EA that entails very much the same thing.

I'm getting a PS4 but Halo still has a large and loyal following, including myself. I haven't played my Halo 4 in while because I refuse to pay for Xbox Live Gold Scam but aside from dislike of MS, I still love Halo.

Favourite games this gen were Reach, MGS4, and Last of Us.

Why do we keep seeing these articles? Also, if you want a full games list for PS4 vs. X1, then find it on Wikipedia.
DigitalRaptor  +   662d ago
Not just that but it's redundant desperation.

We're 3 months from launch and Gamescom or TGS haven't taken place yet where the scales will be tipping on both sides. Plenty more games will be announced for both consoles, so comparing launch titles now is ridiculous as they're not all of them.
