XPStar: The battle of exclusives Head to Head The war of PS4 vs XBOX ONE has been heating up since their reveal. The exclusive games on each of the consoles can play and extremely vital role in deciding the fate of the next-gen console.
As of right now Xbox One has a better exclusive lineup than the PS4.
X1 totally has the better launch line up, no argument there. But every Sony developer is working on a PS4 game (including Naughty Dog) and only a couple of those games were announced. Plus, PS4 is getting 30 or so exclusives first year, compared to X1's 15-20. I don't know exact numbers, I just know PS4 has more. PS: In the article, Killer Instinct is labeled PS4 and Deep Down is labeled X1. That's supposed to be reversed.
Xbox One has 15-20 MS Game Studio exclusives. This means, games like Titanfalls and Ryse isn't part of those 15 games.
@nukeitall I don't consider Titanfall exclusive when I can play it on my PC, and 360 for that matter. Plus, it's probably coming to PS4 later, so I just don't count that. Ryse does look amazing though. That's my favorite X1 exclusive as of right now
These comments reek of desperation. "Titanfall will probably be coming to PS4, and besides, PS4 will have more games once they are announced." Seems like a lot of mights and probablys. Both consoles will be awesome, and both consoles will have great games. No need to justify your purchasing decisions with a bunch of BS.
@ForgottenProphecy: Fact of the matter is that if you "consider" Titanfalls (or games in general) an exclusive or not is immaterial. It is all about, if the games are good. Would it matter to you if there were 200 crappy exclusives? It is ultimately about content quality. That said, for me the favorite games are: Quantum Break, Titanfalls, Ryse and Watchdogs. In that order.
I think that is not really the case @The_Villager. I'm far more interested in Killzone Shadow Fall and Infamous Second Son than anything I've seen from Microsoft thus far. I would love to play Forza 5, but that is the only title I would purchase that is exclusive if I were to pick up a One, as I'm not a fan of games like Dead Rising or Killer Instinct, and TitanFall doesn't interest me at all because I need a strong single player if I'm putting down money for a game. I'm buying a ps4 because I love their first party devs and the system specs and pricing. I'm holding off on the Xbone because of pricing, mandatory kinect, and that lack of a killer game that would make me spend 499 on the Xbone. Maybe that game will be the next Halo, maybe not. The games that have me most excited for next gen thus far are the two previously mentioned, along with many multiplats, such as The Division, Destiny, Watch_Dogs, Metal Gear V, and The Witcher 3. I'm also more intrigued by The Order:1886, and the projects currently in development for the PS4 from studios like Naughty Dog, Sony Santa Monica, Media Molecule, Quantic Dream, and Guerilla. That is Sony's strength right now, those first party studios are exemplary. And the prospects for what they will be producing for the PS4 would fill anyone with delight, assuming said persons had played brilliant games such as The Last of Us, Uncharted 2, God of War 3, Little Big Planet, etc. etc.
You're entitled to your own opinion medmen :)
You oughta play Warhawk or Battlefield 2. Will change you're mind about multiplayer only games big time. Same here though. Only FORZA 5 and Titanfall the rest I don't really care about.
Exclusives Shown: Xbox > Ps4 Talk: Xbox < Ps4
well to be honest of what was shown as in gameplay ps4 wins hands down people talk about xbox exclusives and we have not seen 70% up and running or what the actual gameplay looks like.
I still don't think Dead Rising 3 & TitanFall will be XBone exclusives. I think they will go multiplatform. Shocked this article didn't mention TF as an XBone exclusive. I wonder what new exclusives we'll see from both M$ & Sony come Gamescom.
Dead Rising 3? Doubt it, look at how many Dead Rising titles have been exclusive to Xbox. Also it's published by Microsoft Studios so not anytime soon. TitanFall multiplatform? Anything is possible, because MONEY TALKS. Although, look at this quote from TitanFall developers? “We’re a very small team, so we had to pick a platform if we were going to be on consoles,” McCandlish continues, “and Xbox made the most sense. I feel that, in terms of multiplayer and communal gaming, Microsoft is like the Apple of videogames. You can just start your game without finding your disc, you can go to your friend’s place and your saves are all there, and with the cloud servers you don’t ever have to worry about transferring between hosts or bad latency.” Source of quote: http://www.edge-online.com/...
Well Mass Effect was published by M$, many games are published by 1 console. Unless it's a first party release honestly any game really isn't exclusive.
u mean MS has revealed more exclusives than Sony did. But quality wise MS lags behind.
They moved all of their xbox 360 exclusives on xbox one,thats why xbox one has "more" exclusives atm.Sony from the other side left TLOU,beyond two souls,GT6,tales of xilia and some other games on ps3.That means that they still count on ps3 even after revealing ps4(also a new ratchet and clank for ps3).
From what I saw on my phone.. The only legit comparison is drive club and forza..
forza looks better than driveclub killzone looks better than ryse dead rising and killer instinct looks better than knack infamous looks better than all of them that's how i see it. either way if your a gamer and not a fanboy both have good games coming.
Sucks infamous wont launch with system. Only game I was looking forward to on ps4
Just saying they aren't fair comparisons.. Comparing dr3 to killzone is apples and oranges for example.. DC and forza are both racers so its a fair comparison..
@trafalger I agree with your assessment. Second Son is simply mind blowing. I wish it was a launch title but there are plenty of non exclusive next gen games and current gen titles to hold me over until Imfamous:SS arrives.
I've never been bothered about Infamous and , for my tastes as a Jet Set Radio Future fan, the 'navigate a city with ease' genre will hopefully be well served by Sunset Overdrive.
@edonus: I'm with you. I don't see how anyone can claim Ryse isn't the most graphically visually best game of any next generation games. Ryse is a monster when it comes to graphics! In fact, monsters of all monsters.
@edonus You're comparing the polygon count of one character (Ryse) to all of the NPC characters (KZ:SF). Until we find out how many polygons are used for each NPC/ enemy in Ryse, your comparison is non existent. By your argument's standards, Gran Turismo 5 on PS3 has better graphics because each premium car has at least 250,000 polygons. Don't forget how flat the backgrounds in Ryse looked... Take away all of the enemies and all you're left with is a very dead Roman landscape. Take away all the NPC's in Killzone Shadowfall and you are still left with a huge living city with ships flying around.
look look look look how about plays better? the so called hardcore gamers forgot about the first thing that made us love games, great design and gameplay gfx are important yes but we are in an era which almost everygame look like CGI, even last of us and gta v has great gfx, nothing looks ugly these day nextgen will expose bad developers, because anyone can make a good looking game, gameplay and great design is where it's at
Ryse looks way more realistic than Killzone and it had a ship on fire with particles flying along with archers in the background. Killzone mostly only had the environment and enemies. Even Sony fans admit that Ryse is one of the best looking games just not the ones on this site I wasn't that impressed with Second Son either. The destruction is kinda cool but the graphics are so so Oh and go to your Killzone trailer you'll see your background ships aren't actually moving they're stagnant. Halo Reach had ships actually firing at each other in the background
@Edonus LOL!! Killzone uses 40k polygons on a single NPC, not the main character(s). That's just a random NPC from anywhere in the game that's 40k polygons. You want to talk about polygon count, look at the # of polygons in the characters besides Marius in Ryse. It's atrocious...
"Ryse visually slaughters every single game sony has shown." Claims like this are really bizarre to me. There are better looking multi plats and exclusives on both consoles. "OK everyone hit him with the official graphics showing KZsf uses 40k polygons and Ryse uses 150k polygons." ...and the odd boast about the main character in a 3rd person game having more polygons than an NPC in a FPS. Is that really surprising or worthy of being used as a bragging point? Humans are weird.
@edonas Ryse has some nice graphics, but to bad the game plays like crap. It plays itself with QTE's and apparently they automatically complete without pushing any buttons. WTF is that?
@karpetburnz QTE's that finish themselves?! What's next? Racing games that let you rewind and redo turns that you screwed up??
I have to say, it a little funny and a little sad to see people like edonus cherrypicking facts to try and make their argument look better. Comparing the main character's polygon count from one game to the NPC's count in another? Classic.
I agree with those statements but to say that Forza looks better then Drive Club is stretching it at the moment. I mean we have only seen the Drive Club demo that was 35% complete.
Right now DriveClub isnt finish but they already stated that out of forza 5 and gta6 Driveclub was the best to play were they wanted to keep playing unlike the rest, its all about gameplay which ryse does horribly if u looked at how the main character moved it was clunky until he hopped in QuickTime mode but the most graphically impressive game to me is Second Son because of the scale the game had and still looked graphically amazing compared to dr3 which looked horrible to me.
its about opinion
oh gosh here we go again
Don't feed the troll people, just bubble down and move along. OT, exclusives really are about personal preference but i would like to see more of Ryse, at the moment neither consoles exclusives blow me away but i'm glad there are a plethora of top multiplats being released with next gen consoles. Edit: Omg i completely forgot about infamous, I'm a fan of the series (and sandbox games in general) so i'd definitely like to see more of that as well.
Both consoles are offering a great range of games. I'm interested in both sides exclusives, yet I am just a little more interested in the X1's exclusives. I'm still getting both consoles, so I get the best of both worlds.
Im getting ps4 but im really interested in sunset overdrive, hope ms shows some gameplay
Same. Looks cool. Could fail horribly or be a fantastic game.
I think Infamous is the best of them all at this moment
the Question about which exclusives vs which exclusives are better have always been a lynchpin on the systems. I look at it like which ever one you choose your going to have fun. its like this epic battle of the titans in boxing back in the 70's K. Norton vs. G. Coleman, both were aggressive, and both determined to win the champion ship belt. One was going to be the winner and one was going to be the one who would not win. you could envision this battle of titans both ways, Sony as K. Norton and Microsoft as G. Coleman, or Microsoft as K.Norton and Sony as G. Coleman to see what im talking about. check out this awesome battle. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Personally, I don't really care that much about exslusives. (I'm planning on getting both) I'm getting the ps4 first though, because that's my console preference. I don't understand why people want to compare games that are completely different from the other. People should be excited for everything this up coming holiday! The trolling is getting old. It's one thing to have your own opinion, but come on people... Grow the F up.
All i care about is that i get to play all of them.
Hell yeah buddy! I won't exactly play all of them but I'm deffintely excited for them.. It's a great time to be a gamer!
So far I'm liking ps4's exclusives better but Xbox one has some nice ones.
I like the range of XboxOne games but why do people go overboard about Ryse? It's alright but I don't expect a reinvention of anything. I'll give Killer Instinct my praise for getting the look of an arcade fighter spot on. Deep Down on the PS4 looks like it has beautiful detail. OK, it's a Capcom game so I have concerns like it'll feel too arcadey but look at the detail. The mud on the floor, the fire, the dragon itself.
Lol don't mess with Sony when it comes to games, they will shoot u down in flames. Halo is the only game I enjoyed on Xbox the rest have been a bit meh and titan fall il get on pc if it's any good I'm all for planetside 2 and war thunder and also any ps exclusive any day over a Xbox console nothing personal it's just Sony exclusively is beyond any platform out and due mainly cause Sony have Proved it. I'll get a x one for halo deffo and a price drop bundle. Not paying for a less powerful console am sorry
both systems have great exclusive games, don't be a fanboy
only xbox exclusive I want to try is Lost Odyssey
LOOL This Opinion says Killer Instinct is PS4 and Deep Down is Xbox One.
I think I'll go where the game support is pretty much guaranteed not to dry up after a few years or so.
Games like gt6, last of us, beyond, R&C, and puppeteer could of been moved to ps4 like some X1 games were moved from 360. People forget Sony is supporting both ps3 and ps4 not just 1 console.
I can't honestly complain about that. I think it's good that Sony still embraces that PS3 will still have an audience after PS4 releases, and to keep supporting the platform. It shows that, unlike M$, they won't drop support for an already establish console because they expect people to immediately run and for over $500 for a new one.
This is true, apparently Microsoft canceled a lot of games for the 360 in the last couple years, and made them for the X1 instead. That's why the 360 has had no games lately cause they've all been moved to the Xbone.
People forget one crucial detail when saying that XBone will have more exclusives than PS4: The fact that M$ has already played all of it's biggest cards, in terms of exclusive first party titles. We have already seen the new Halo, Forza, Remedy's new title, and Ryse. The only things we havn't seen yet are a new Fable and Gears, 2 series that have pretty run their course, and Gears having a huge chance of coming to the PS4, seeing the good relationship between Epic and Sony atm. On the PS4 side, we still havn't heard about Guerilla's new IP, SSM's new IP, Media Molecule's new IP, what Japan Studio has in store (they're always making something), or (most importantly), what Naughty Dog is currently developing. At the moment, the 2 systems are about equal in launch window exclusives, with XBone getting a couple more Day 1. Gamescom is extremely likely to change that, with Sony confirming that they have some huge plans for the PS4 there. People need to stop making these stupid until both consoles launch and we know for a fact what actually will be available to consumers on Day 1.
ms has been signing a lot of exclusive deals recently just read ubisoft is making a kinect 2 beat em up. http://news.google.com/news... http://www.vg247.com/2013/0...
In terms of gameplay, visual fidelity & things running real time, PS4 cleans up I feel. Hoping for some gameplay from The Order tomorrow :).
It's purely opinion but i greatly prefer PS4's lineup, especially when the free 2 play and indie games are included
sony has a good line up but so far im more impressed with ms variety of games. all that is lacking is an rpg and platformer.i was shocked to find out that the original gears of war cost ms just 10mill dollars so if ms is actually budgeting over a billion dollars to create the first batch of games then i have to wonder how many more games does ms have unannounced? and for all we know this figure may not include marketing of the games.
Sunset Overdrive already appears to be a bit of a platformer. He jumps off a platform on to a zipline. I think that it's going to be a pretty vertical game, at least in part, like Jet Set Radio Future.
That's another great game. I totally forgot about that one. It looks like its going to be so much fun but it seems more like jet set radio with guns. I like the graphic style though and I'm sure insomniac will create some wonderful weapons to go with the game style.anyways I wouldn't call it a platformer imo kameo, blinx, banjoe are the kind of games i will call true platformers...and i can't wait for ms to announce something from rare.
i personally prefer the xbox one exclusives.
Hey at least MS is trying HARDER this Gen to get some good Exclusives! Last Gen MS was a JOKE with Exclusives, I think they have learned their lesson. Too Early to pick a winner especially with Santa Monica making God of War PS4 which is their bread n butter while we ALL know Halo XB1 will do CRAZY INSANE numbers. like I said I'm just Happy to see MS have more concern with Exclusives this Gen and I'm sure MS gamers are happy about that.
Those Xbox One games are supposed to be for the 360 lol. Anyway I'm sure Sony's amazing 1st party studios will bring stellar games once again just like they did with PS3 + indie developers + Gaikai game streaming
really looking forward to Planetside 2, and Warframe, best launch games right now.
