Playstation 4 and Xbox One Launch Exclusives compared (Gamescom edition)

Both Microsoft and Sony had their conferences at the on going Gamescom conference in Germany where both parties announced new games. Some of them were full retail titles while others were digital only. Indies dominated the show but fans of AA and AAA titles need not worry as they’ll get their due attention in time. (PS4, Xbox One)

Ryse ftw.

This is really a Slaughter.

I heard Fighter Within isnt exclusive (I am going to try this one out myself, I have long dreamed of a solid fighting game for kinect. If done right I will love.)

And I thought Fantasia was a launch game.

ryse looks good

but playstation will come out on top

deal with it
abzdine  +   650d ago
i agree!
it will be stupid to deny that X1 has more exclusives right now, but everyone should know that it's PlayStation we're talking about.
you will have inFamous a month after release.

I don't know if ps will come out on top, micro is refocused on the core gamers that made them what they are today. This time instead of kinect being a distraction its already in every box and its a part of the X1 ecosystem instead of a add on they have to sell. I think micro is back to their roots and in perfect position to out spend sony so that xbox gamers get great core games from inhouse and the best 3rd party devs the industry has to offer. I think for micros worst critics it's sort of like a case of be careful what you ask for.
abzdine  +   649d ago
@JOY: let me remind you what happened between 360 and PS3.
because of the the price differences and complexity of programming, everyone said PS3 was doomed. next to these problems it even came out a year later with NO GAME what so ever!! PS3 era just ended and japanese industry entered a painful hibernation. Despite all these complication PS3 came on top and outsold 360 with insane quality titles such as Uncharted, Heavy Rain and more...

Now think of that and see how things are right now.. Sony have been bringing consistent message, their console will be released first and most of all it will be much cheaper and more powerful. Add to that Sony financials are much better right now and each of their studios is working on a PS4 game. Sorry but as things are right now i can almost say that PSone and PS2 times will be back.. Do you imagine the consequences that Xbox is skipping half of Europe until next year will be?

abzdine thats great but also remember sony benefitted fro an incredible amount of hype from their ps2 success, plus all the bluray and cell promises that lead alot of gamers to believe ps3 was going to be some sort of super console vs 360...it never happened and now no matter what sony says about power nobody is going in to next gen with that thinking.

Its put up or shut up from here on out for gamers and nothing you've mentioned changes the fact that micro has the financial resources to make a big impact regarding exclusives. Micro seems like a angry bull whos determined to beat his tormenter where it matters; In the ring= games that gamers like. Hey at no point do I think this means sony will just roll over and play dead, they'll stick and kick the bull to the death....I just think this bull is going to be even tougher to take down this gen. Especially one that has been well fed and rested.

lol kinda funny to see yet another flip flop fron the xbox camp! how many has it been now?

1. 360 released early with many exclusives in the early years and it was "exclusives define a console" but when MS shifted focus to the Kinect and only shuffle Halo Forza Gears Fable for exclusives, suddenly "exclusives don't matter"

2. when Sony released exclusives one after another, it was "I'll take superior version of multiplats over any exclusives any day of the week" but now it's all about the exclusives.

gotta love these clowns!
ShinMaster  +   649d ago

You serious? No games whatsoever?
These are some of the games released exclusively on PS3 in its FIRST YEAR:

Resistance: FoM
Ratchet & Clank: Future
Heavenly Sword
and all other third-party games.

Saying that it had "no games" was always false. People need to stop repeating what some ignorant fanboys say on the internet.
Lukas_Japonicus  +   650d ago
A slaughter, lol.

The only slaughter that i can remember when it comes to exclusives happened this gen. The Last Of Us anyone?

And sorry to burst your bubble but Fighter Within looks horrendous, the footage is on Youtube if you want to see it. Flailing arms around wildly anyone?

Tony-A  +   650d ago
It can only be a "slaughter" if these games actually came out already so we can compare critic scores. Until then, your comment is opinion.

As for me, the only title on the XBO that would interest me at this point is Dead Rising 3, and even then it's not a must-have for me. Other than that, multi platform titles are what is keeping me excited, and I'm deciding to play them on the more powerful hardware (PS4).

Oh, and the Fighter Within is literally gonna be the Kinect version of The Fight for PS Move. Otherwise known as, a failure.

dboyc310  +   649d ago
There is a reason Dead rising went exclusive. Honestly the game isn't big enough even though it was in both platforms. The only game that looks good on the xbox list is Ryse. The coliseum combat looks cool.
nosferatuzodd  +   649d ago
who ever make this list full of shit try to dumb ps4 launch list down so xbone can look better ps4 have way more than five launch title planet side 2 is a launch title allso blacklight retribution and a lot more games this is so bogus don't believe this crap

Can someone tell me what Ryse's gameplay will actually entail? Because every time that I think of it, I think of a shinier, yet crappier version of God of War filled with even more QTEs...

NeloAnjelo  +   649d ago
@JOY.... This "re-foucus" on the core gamer you speak of will die out like it did with the 360. Soon MS will once again be pushing Kinect games and other services that the One offers. The 360 started off this way too.

Sony has every 1st party working on PS4 games. So these will be an even spread throughout the year. This PS2 hype you mentioned was killed by the price tag, and being a year late. Remember the 360 was released in a vacuum... i.e. it was the only console at the time doing HD gaming, with somewhat robust online. Hence the success of the 360. It was not a better device, nor did it have better games in the long run.

The previous three E3s, not counting this one, MS pushed Kinect all the way. Look at how many first party exclusives Sony pushed in that time, and are still pushing with the PS3.

ChozenWoan  +   649d ago
am i the only one who noticed the lag.

Pay attention to when the players duck and when their char ducks. Not as bad as Kinect Original, but still bad. If this was a shooter it would be bargain bin day one.
KillrateOmega  +   649d ago
Before this moment, I knew nothing of Fighter Within (I didn't get a chance to catch up on MS's Gamescom info), but then I saw that it was a Kinect game...and I saw what fights would entail in terms of player action...

I'm not excited for it.
Anon1974  +   649d ago
Whaa? But you can jump off things in your environment around you while you flail, and a second later Kinect will say "Oh hell, they just did something different. Run jump animation!"

And didn't you see the 1:1 tracking? It's like those girls were really slap fighting INSIDE the screen!

All kidding aside, this looks freakn awful. It appears to have perhaps slightly more depth than Wii-boxing, but that might be generous. Glad to see devs are really stretching the limits of what Kinect can do.

No Kinect game should ever be defended. Assume it's bad first, based on the past disasters. Don't defend Kinect.

The xbox launch line up is miles better imo
Lukas_Japonicus  +   650d ago
Just like it was this gen. Then look what happened. Give Sony's 1st party devs some time to stretch their legs and see what happens.
CRAIG667  +   650d ago
Yup I aint disputing that, but as far as which launch line-up appeals to me, the xbox takes it hands down.

Let's be honest though, Microsoft know they have a HUGE fight on their hands this gen with no 1 year lead, I don't think they will lay back and relax like last gen.
spicelicka  +   649d ago
What do you mean "look at what happened"? You think both MS and SONY didn't see what happened?? Neither console is going to repeat the same mistakes they did last time and both are trying to compete more heavily.

MS knows Sony's exclusives are a huge selling point and they have already invested in many exclusives and 1st part studios. Sony knows xbox live was huge and they couldn't keep with it financially with free PSN so they've already invested in PS plus, which will now be required for ps4.

And both companies knew what Wii did with motion controls so they both made ridiculous investments on Kinect and Move.

If you really think anything is gonna be the same as last gen, you must really not be paying attention.
TheFanboySlayer  +   650d ago
lmao meeh imo I think Xbox only has Forza, Ryse, and Dead Rising 3 that interest me. That's it for me. You only have Drive Club and Killzone SF for Sony that are semi interesting. But Sony has soo many digital free to play titles and Indies that it is reaaally tough and such it's hard to choose. I'm reeeally interested in the horror games that sony has like Daylight and Outlast but we'll have to wait and see.

GodGinrai  +   650d ago
personally I think X1 has the better launch line up for me.

Of course this post is going to turn into a fanboy fest. Personally I think you should all meet up and fight each other. ill watch and make sure nobody tries to break it up or call the cozzers.

Ryse isnt halo calibur yet because it's a new IP. I don't think it'll be that successful but I think it will sell moderately well.

I remember back in February everyone was saying "Crysis 3 is all graphics no gameplay! Crytek only knows how to make pretty games and their gameplay sucks! blah blah blah blah" But now that they're making an xBone title they're suddenly the best developers ever lol. Oh internet.

Reminds me of the 360's good launch lineup. Then after that it was all about entertainment apps.

Looks like the Xbox One is going in the same direction.
xReDeMpTiOnx  +   649d ago
No launch lineup is better..... What the hell are you guys going on about?

So we all clearly have both next gen systems and all the launch titles and have beaten them all to be able to compare launch line ups without just making an un justified fanboy comment to the system I like better.

Wait until the games are out and actually given time to be reviewed
Master-H  +   649d ago
Microsoft seem to be winning in the quantity department so far , as for quality, aka which is better it is yet to be decided since the games aren't out yet and we don't have personal experiences or at least reviews to compare them, and even then it could be still argued that it is a subjective matter.

Never the less it's looking like a pretty awesome launch for both machines , especially when you add in the 3rd party titles and the f2p games coming (War Thunder looked beastly last night)and even the indies are getting love next gen.

I have to say that Microsoft knows business when it comesto selling the xbox one. They did a 180 once they realized all of the features were not going to work out. That part is Dusted and done, nothing to see here!
The starting line up has games I WISH to play rather than
lets see if I like a game that looks like it was a tech demo turned into a game.
Can someone sell me "Knack?" rather than say "because" or "graphixs man!"

I will most likely buy a ps4 for multiplatform but xbox one for exclusives. (both reserved.)

if anyone says "the good games come later" I say
yeah, I been waiting for Nintendo for awhile now!
