Why we switched our preorders to Xbox One

The launch lineup of the Xbox One was a big factor. (Xbox One)

DriveClub=Forza 5 (Driveclub is Free on PS+ so they're both equal in my book)

Killzon:Shadowfall> Ryse: Son of Rome

Dead Rising 3>Knack

The rest of the list is where Sony just completely Destroy's Xbox One Line-up with it's Free-To Play exclusive games such as.

Warframe

Planetside 2

DC Universe Online

Blacklight Retribution

War Thunder

Holy hell! Did the buy above me really say Drive Club is equal to the defending Champion of sim racers.. Forza?!?!?!!? BECAUSE IT'S FREE!

And he has way more agrees than disagrees on N4Sony for saying that. LMAO!!! X1 launch line up is better than Sony's. It's ok to admit it.

Comparing Killzon:Shadowfall to Ryse: Son of Rome is kind of dumb. They both are going high on graphics, but that's it.

Killzon has multiplayer and Ryse will have co-op, so far nothing else has been mentioned. Also they are completely different genres.

@badboy
So whenever i say "metro 2033, condemned, l4d, l4d2, and titanfall are xbox exclusives", im wrong because theyre on pc (and because its on the hellspawn xbox)
But you can say THOSE games are "free to play exclusives" for the ps4, when they've been on pc, some for years.
And if you think a free to play game like driveclub will have the depth of a 60 dollar forza game, nonetheless be the "same thing", you can keep dreaming.
And please, get your fps tripe killzone out of here. Bland, uninteresting and typical FPS's should have died with last gen. They are not a selling point for either console.

Midnight Forza is hardly a SIM racer . It shares way more aracdey feel then a sim racer.

have you never played a sim racer? GT or the PC versions?

I seriously think you need to change your definition of SIM racer.
hazardman  +   363d ago
@badboy,

No No No No No....DriveClub does not equal Forza. Forza is an established franchise.. No one knows how DriveClub is gonna be its new. So for you to say they cancel each other out is plain wrong.

I actually went with PS4 first as well. I mean with Killzone SF, DriveClub(retail), AC4, COD and BF4..plus F2P im gonna have plenty to hold me down til more exclusives come out for PS4.
GodGinrai  +   363d ago
@badboy

Drive club is not equal to forza. Its not even a sim ..let alone a semi-sim. It reminds me more of testdrive or forza horizon.

Killzone vs ryse... hmm..two differnt types of games..like comparing apples and oranges really..do you prefer apples (FPS) or oranges (hack and slash)?

same goes for DR3 Vs knack. too different to really compare and more a question of what genres you prefer.

war frame will end up on X1 aswell..and based on my own personal experience (anybody with a steam account and a half descent graphics card can play it RIGHT NOW)..its an average game at best. its only getting attention because its coming to ps4.

planetside2 is fun for a while..then I got bored and went back to hawken..which is more fun.

DC and black light are hardly going to rock anybodies world...but war thunder looks like it will be fun.

Killzone is about as interesting as watching paint dry... Part 2 was oooooooooo k at best. Played it for a month then ditched it. It has no personality, seems so generic.

Sony really dropped the ball on launch line up. Imagine if they would've told Naughty Dog to make Last of Us a launch game. With all this momentum and a game like that at launch they couldve done very well but now they are letting MS catch up again.

I think MS went out og their way to land a good line up because they were doing things that might have rubbed gamers the wrong way. So they loaded up on games. Well, the back lash caused them to reverse their strategy but all the games they invested in are still there. This worked out perfect for X1 owners.

Guys just get both but honestly MS has a better launch line up if you are a gamer.

@badtoy776 forza > GT6 and driveclub with the graphics the FPS the gameplay
and you just compared a swords game to a FPS wow really smart beside TITANFALL > killzone SF and every games site said that
warframe dev's said that they are thinking about making it for Xone too
planetside 2 sucks
DC i don't like MMO's
the rest is dumb
in the other hand there are fable halo killer instinct spark trials , and a game that like the PS4 type (for kids) zoo tycoon
malokevi  +   363d ago | Well said
The article has one great point that I never considered.

Why is it, that every time I say "Titanfall is going to be fantastic", PS4 fans jump all over me and say "its on PC too, I'm getting it for PC!"... as if all those PS4 fans who spew junk about "PC elitism" suddenly have high-end PCs.

But, at the same time, when PS4 fans say "look at all the exclusives and awesome F2P like Planetside2, Warframe, and Warthunder" everyone goes "yeah, HIGH 5, woohoo Sony!" as though PCs don't exist, and all that whining about F2P is suddenly... a distant memory.

I think the double standard is quite funny. I'll be getting a PS4 in the launch window merely for the fact that I don't have a nice PC, and those F2P games are the best looking multiplayer games on the console. But at least I'm man enough to admit it.
UnHoly_One  +   363d ago
Comparing DriveClub to Forza is laughable at best.

And whoever said Forza is not a Sim racer is insane. Saying Gran Turismo is more Sim than Forza?? Um. No.

Killzone doesn't interest me at all, I've never played any of them, mostly because I can't play a shooter with the awful PS controller.

Quite honestly, I don't know if I should keep my PS4 pre-order at this point. I won't use it until Infamous Second Son comes out anyway.
BlueBlood17  +   363d ago
Just gonna put my thoughts out there...

Driveclub is a new franchise, it's unfair to say that it is nowhere near the standard of a game such as Forza.

Also, Driveclub is much more akin to PGR (a former Xbox staple) but I have seen many interviews stating that the guys spent A LOT of time trying to get the balance between sim and arcade to maximise FUN - which is the most important thing. What is comparable is the cars, Driveclub may be half-arcade-half-sim, but other than the handling, it's goal is out and out realism. It looks AMAZING and that developer at E3 stating that they made the effort to make sure every imperfection in the carbon fiber, and the way light behaves across the textures and surfaces of the cars interior is fully replicated means it could possibly be ahead of Forza in terms of detail! You just need to see some of these interviews; the depth of detail that they are going into is bordering on insane.

This game intrigues me, and it's brilliant that we will get a skimmed down version with PS+ to try out. You never know, it might be amazing and earn my money for the full game! (which is discounted with PS+ too)

Killzone looks really good too, not just with Guerrilla always creating stunning looking games, but the fact that they have moved away from the grey and brown of old. The new game looks vibrant.

Knack, for me, looks... well, cute. If that's the right word. Doesn't really look like a game I'd buy and looks like it's a bit of a tribute to the older generations. Has a bit of a Ratchet vibe about it (I love R&C) but to be quite honest it just looks a bit too childish for my liking. I'll wait for reviews.

@DejectedJeff You really are dejected aren't you? Possibly even delusional... Driveclub IS a full game, just because we get a reduced version of the game with PS+ doesn't mean otherwise. Correct me if I'm wrong, but PS+ has a bit of a habit of spitting out great FULL games of late. Also, I don't see those F2P games being available on XBone do I? You get a PS4 and you have 5 free fully fleshed out games and you don't even need PS+. Don't even try to pretend that this doesn't matter. Oh, and to claim that FPS games are pretty much irrelevant is laughable.

Nice try.

I won't argue your guys opnions but there are numerous sources out there that say GT is more realistic in multiple areas and that Forza just isn't yet.

All that aside PC sims are real sims and there is a reason they are far more accurate then Forza and GT is closer to them.

Not one real race driver has ever or will ever use forza for training. That in itself disproves forza as a true accurate SIM racer. The problem also is hasn't Forza said they were a sim racer sinc like #2? When in reality Forza 2 and 3 are so far from a sim its not a debate with 4 being as close to they have come and still they have articles out there showing the multiple areas forza is not true in simulation mode. Just examples Brakes, Weight, Tires and drift.

Why is it that Sony fanboys are always claiming to have gaming PCs whenever a game comes out on PC and Xbox 360 (like The Witcher 2, Left 4 Dead, Alan Wake, etc), but now they all seem so excited to play a bunch of free to play and indie games on their future PS4s that are available on the PC?

Surely if they really did all have gaming PCs as they have repeatedly claimed, they would simply play those games on their PCs. Not only are the graphics and framerate performance better on PC, but they could be enjoying most of those games RIGHT NOW.

I had planned to get a PS4 at or around launch, but I had expected more interesting games. As a PC gamer, most of those indie games and F2P games are on or will be on PC.

Knack looks generic. The graphics look almost current gen in quality and the gameplay looks stale.

Killzone Shadow Fall looks decent, but nothing amazing. It looks like Killzone 3.5 overall.

Infamous Second Son looks quite good, but I don't know if I need to buy a console right away just to play one game.
BlackTar187  +   363d ago
Starchild,

I prefer ps over xbox but i game on everything.

ill answer that question for me on both systems.

I prefer the unified friends list and ease of access to games then on PC. For example i have multiple friends list on PC and the diversity in games makes it hard for us all to agree and play the same game constantly. For ex. Battlefield finding friends on there is sometimes cumbersome and then getting in the same room and ease of playing is just not as easy as friends lists and lobbies in console games. Ill admit i only played bf3 on pc for about 5hrs so maybe that was easier navigated but bf2 and 2142 were a task for me.

I do own a custom built PC i do play it a bunch but i usually play SP games on it due to graphics i like to keep my Consoles for online MP due to ease of playing and getting people all on the same game.

Bonus round: The community on PC vs consoles is vastly different and PC in my experience tends to have people who play one game for a very long time where on consoles buddies usually will get games together and always play them together. I am not saying my experience is the norm by any means i am simply saying my experience over the last however many years of MP takeover.

Bottom line it's a poor article and flamebait. He didn't even say what game made him switch, just it was all about the games. Both consoles don't have stellar launch line-ups.

I'll be getting both eventually, I just will get my PS4 first. Why? Because I still don't agree with the M$ forcing the Kinect on me since it's no longer mandatory to use the console. Also I want to see how their policies will be 6 months down the line (just praying that they don't have a 360 and say we are going back to the E3 design).
NextGen24Gamer  +   363d ago
I'm have a Ps4 pre-ordered and 2 xbox ones. But honestly looking at the launch line up, I might take the $400 dollars I have on my ps4 and buy 7 more launch games for my xbox ones. I'm actually thinking about it. I will still end up getting the ps4, but I'll wait for a game that I'll actually play before spending the money.

Xbox One has clear advantages to me.

1. Gaming with friends (better online & community with dedicated servers)

2. Better launch games (look better, play better according to all the awards they have already won)

3. Better features packed into the box (Kinnect 2.0) Snap, Skype, TV integration, voice, gesture, face recognition, Smartglass!

It's so obvious that its almost funny. Anyone that talks about RAM difference, needs to understand that the same ram that's used in the BEST Gaming PC setups, is the same RAM that the xbox ONE uses. If it's good enough for the best gaming rig, it's good enough for a console. Also it's been proven that more of the xbox one's ram can be allocated for games than the ps4.

Xbox one DAY ONE is a no brainer for a true gaming enthusiast! Period

F2P games on your PC that are exclusive to the PS4 console will now destroy Xbox One?

Where are the sony fanboys to dispute this?
DragonKnight  +   363d ago | Well said
Yep, this site sure is filled with Sony fanboys. Look at all the Sony fanboys commenting above my comment, just filled with Xbox One hate. Yep, bias is everywhere.

On Topic: 1. "Microsoft is increasing the amount of servers they have from 15,000 to 300,000. This should really decrease the stress on developers because they will no longer have to maintain their own servers. This could allow older games to have multiplayer for longer and tons of other things."

B.S. reason is B.S. You're throwing in Microsoft PR hype as a reason to switch over? You have literally no idea how many physical servers there are going to be, or to what extent the amount of physical servers there are is going to help. You're throwing this reason out there with literally no knowledge about what it will do for your gaming experience. Remember, 300,000 servers is vague. It could be 285,000 virtual servers and 15,000 physical servers for all you know. B.S. reason is complete B.S.

2. "When Sony announced all of the new games, and I’m talking about for launch, I already have most of them on my PC (Warframe, Don’t Starve, etc.) and I could buy most of the ones that I don’t have on my PC at any time without purchasing a PS4. I love indie games, but the Xbox is open to indies as well and will always choose PC first anyways."

Another B.S. reason. So because Titanfall can be bought on the 360 or the PC, does that mean people shouldn't bother buying an Xbox One? Come on now. This is just a cop out.

3. "Microsoft has made so many changes with the Xbox One that their really isn’t that big of a difference between them. The Xbox One is honestly just a better decision at launch."

That last part is what really had me going "What?" Those changes Microsoft has made, they already existed on the PS4 from the very start. You're saying that a console that had terribly anti-consumer policies on it and then changed them is a smarter decision to buy than a console that never had those anti-consumer decisions from the start. You're saying that the message of being for corporate interests first, and then changing to being kinda for gamers after backlash, is better than always being for gamers. And you can say that with a straight face? Absolutely ridiculous.

4. "Nobody can deny that the launch lineup of the Xbox One is better than the PS4. The one game that I was looking forward to on PS4 on launch night was Outlast, which I will be able to get on my PC next month."

EVERYONE can deny that the launch lineup is better because the entire thing is SUBJECTIVE. It is impossible to state as a fact that one console has a better launch lineup than the other so long as there are people out there who don't like the games of one console over the other. This isn't the U.N. with a "majority rules" system. There isn't even a majority opinion that can be quantified. 4 B.S. reasons so far.

5. "Again, it’s just all about the games… things may change in the future and the tables may turn, but until then… XBOne all the way!"

So basically you just repeated reason number four to pad out your list. Subjective point is subjective.

Basically, since all of your reasons are absolute B.S., you were unwilling to be honest about anything. In all honesty, you never had a PS4 pre-ordered at all and you're pre-ordering the Xbox One because you want to. That's it. You like the games and want to pre-order for that reason. That's fine, but don't lie about it with a padded out list of absolute B.S. PR reasons. That's so disingenuous.

To switch or not to switch that is the question.I think I'll stay with the PS4 for two reasons.1st is I don't think MS is finished switching(pun intended).In other words I would not be surprised if MS brought back all they changed once MS is happy with the size of their fan base.And 2nd,Personally I was not happy with the support MS has shown first the Xbox and now the 360 as their life cycles neared the end.I want to see if MS has switched their ways and actually makes exclusives well into the 1's life cycle.This is just my opinion.

X1 early adopters aren't forward thinking. Xbox has always historically had good luanch lineups with Halo 1 for Xbox and all the timed exclusive games for Xbox 360. This doesn't change anything. And then historically the xbox fizzles out later in the generation with few exclusives.

The X1 early adopters are the same crowd over and over again. They deserve to lose there money. All they can see is a few feet forward anyway.

Even so, I think both Forza 5 and Drive Club look more interesting than GT6. Probably because of the generation leap, though.

over 300 comments and someone actually thinks this site isn't full of sony fanboys. thats hilarious.

whats ironic is pre-E3 the forums all around lit up about xbones reveal, suggesting gaming was not a focus on it. yet fast forward and the line-up is not only strong but some think it's stronger than the ps4's.

if it is or isn't is based on preference. of course the name on the side of the box has a lot of influence, especially on fanboys. regardless of what you think of either company having strong competition is good for the industry and the consumer. what isn't good for anyone are a bunch of clowns acting half there age because they don't like the company.

still, m$ biggest stumbling block is the price and why kinect is needed. it's the same stumbling block nintendo faces at a time new hardware is coming while there system is more than current hardware and not being nearly as powerful as either the xbone or the ps4. a hundred dollar difference is a lot for some people but that camera is expensive. now they have to show how it's applicable for gaming to the hardcore since they are often the ones who buy consoles first. we know the new kinect is far superior but it has to be applied in ways gamers want to use it.

Choosing your console based on launch games? Lol, that's smart. As if launch games determine how successful the console will be?

I think now that the dust is settling, content and features are starting to win over.

That said, it is interresting because it seems Sony is not on track with their software. The launch lineup is mostly smaller indie games. Supposed AAA games like Driveclub was only 35% complete at E3. Somehow this is to be completed, tested, refined and go gold for production by November 15?

"Yet, the only way your going to play Infamous Second Son is by owning a PS4. Yeah, that makes prefect sense. You sure you were ever getting a PS4 to begin with????"

I am pretty sure he is aware of that..hence why he is buying it later. Infamous is also the game I really want a ps4 to start with. point is at launch..if you are going to buy both, you get the one that has the most games that you want to play RIGHT NOW. I would rather play forza 5,DR3,Ryse and killer instinct in november than killzone, driveclub or knack. So I may aswell wait a little while till a game I want comes out for it, namely infamous2. So i am buying mine in january, a little closer to infamous release date. I will get bored of killzone..that game just just never really seems to stick for me.. at least on X1 I can play BF4 with my freinds in the meantime, until titanfall comes out. . maybe cerebral assasin is just thinking about the games...just a thought. That is pretty much how I made my judgement.

If your going to buy both but can only get one at luanch..then the only thing that should sway your choice is the games.
t3rrorc3ll  +   363d ago
Zblacktt just accept you are surrounded by idiots. @therealness I can play bf4 with my friends on ps4 until second son comes out. So your argument is moot. As for titanfall. It looks like heaps of fun but the graphics are no better than half we've seen previous gen.

So let me get this straight. Killer Instinct being a free to play game, or Fifa being free for pre-orders in Europe is absolute genius. But anything free on the PS4, including Drive Club, is "Sony sheep settling for less and being easily pleased."

Gotta love Xbox One fans.
AlexanderNevermind  +   363d ago
I find it funny how many say that launch games are the reason for X1. Like this is a 100m dash... The past has shown that Sony's exclusives trump Microsoft's. This Gen all signs point to Sony's multiplats looking and performing better as well. Sony for me and its an easy choice.
strifeblade  +   363d ago
@dragonknight

Drive club is not free- if you buy ps+ you get a lite version which includes a few cars and and 7 of the 52 available tracks. I am not saying the game is lacklustre but the package certainly is. Killer instinct is no better and to actually play the game you are going to need to spend 20-40$.

However a full fledged copy of fifa 14 in europe is killer- it is one of the top selling yearly franchises in europe. Fifa to europeans is esential- it is like giving them an extra controller so yes it is a genius move (and no you don't need to buy gold) and adds great percieved value to the package. Sure you save 40$ by buying ps4 and fifa- but the extra 40$ will get you kinect and a slew of features unavailable top the ps4. The fifa consumer will appreciate this so will the call of duty players when it comes to dedicated servers. I have been on call of duty message boards and a number of them are jumping ship for the xbox one because this so yes these are genius moves from microsoft in attempting to grab the consumers of the two best selling franchises.

Sony stated yesterday that it has received over 1 million pre-orders for the PS4....where are MS numbers for the Xbone? If it's clearly the better choice then their pre-order numbers should reflect that, am I right? heh

No you'll pay $500+ tax for the same old tired games that you played this gen, Halo, Forza, Gears. Nothing and I repeat nothing of what MS showed off was even remotely exciting.

Has anyone else noticed that MS hasn't shown off any new footage on these awesome new exclusives since E3 and even then it was pure CGI rendered clips...meanwhile Sony has shown a ton of new footage. Seems to me like someone is trying to hide something.

Curious..did you care about sales for the first seven years of this gen that MS were outselling sony?

"No you'll pay $500+ tax for the same old tired games that you played this gen, Halo, Forza, Gears"

So I guess you wont be touching GT7, KZ:SF and the next unchartered game,right?

"Has anyone else noticed that MS hasn't shown off any new footage on these awesome new exclusives since E3 and even then it was pure CGI rendered clips..."

holy smokes your right...but could that be because ..*gasps*..the press and gamers that went to gamescon were able to play said games? Better than simply seeing footage,right?

"Ryse(movie/quicktime events)
Kinect Sport Rivals(speaks for itself)
Sunset Overdrive(kids game)
Quantum Break(no new footage since E3)"

Lets break that down:

Ryse..the gameplay of ryse is pretty well documented now..get off that old "QTE" crap..numerous websites have already come out to confirm its not the QTE fest it seemed at E3..take your head out from under that rock.

Kinect sport? I guess it does speak for itself..Ign have stated that kinect 2.0 REALLY works. This is a family game at best anyways..so nobody was expecting it to be the second coming of bioshock..again head from under that rock dude..

Sunset overdrive..a kids game..thats a new one...your saying its a kiddie game based on a CG trailer...what are you smoking?

Ill give you your quantum break quip...but the rest of your post was complete and utter bullshit. Im sorry. I mean no offence. But if your going to slate the X1 games..which im perfectly ok with you doing.. buy what ever the hell you want!atleast KNOW what your talking about.

Don't call Sunset Overdrive a kid's game. It's like the new Jet Set Radio. Plus mutants. Plus parkour. The game that I am most looking forward to. Sony fans, don't fool yourself that you wouldn't have liked it on the PS4. But Microsoft were a better fit for Insomniac. Either the game was more important to Microsoft than it was to Sony or Insomniac got more of a buzz for creating a new franchise from working with a new company. Jet Set Radio Future was on the Xbox remember.

@the realness: "Curious..did you care about sales for the first seven years of this gen that MS were outselling sony?"

That never happened. From the launch of the PS3, the PS3 consistently outsold the Xbox 360 worldwide every year, with some arguing about 2011 and saying that that year the Xbox 360 outsold the PS3 worldwide. Don't mistake a year headstart in sales to be equal to outselling the competition every year.

I canceled my PS4 preorder when X1 did the 180. I'm still favoring the PS4 because playstation has a track record of not giving up on the console after the first year, unlike MS. That and better indie support, which is like one of the most important things to me.

But I'm basically waiting for exclusives that really convince me to buy one of the two systems. There are none of those at the moment.

So until then I'll just keep playing DayZ. Or when MGS5 comes out I'll just buy one of the two.

torchic  +   363d ago | Well said
why are people suddenly acting like Sony have never supported their consoles after the first year?

Microsoft definitely have the better launch line up, but what's next? what about Summer 2014? Holiday 2014? Holiday 2015? Halo and the Black Tusk game?

Sony have half a dozen studios still waiting in the wings to tell what they're doing, some others were supporting the PS3 this year and will now shift to PS4.

and on top of that, since PS4 is a more powerful console with (currently) better dev tools than the Xbox One, multiplats like Final Fantasy XV and The Witcher 3 are bound to perform better on PS4.

look, if you're buying an Xbox One solely on the basis of launch games then yes, you're right, if I had the money & could find it in my heart to forgive Microsoft I'd also get one at launch, but don't act like PS4 will be barren for the next 7/8 years like this article is slightly suggesting. if you went back to Microsoft just because you like Microsoft then just say it.

darkride66  +   363d ago | Well said
What the hell, young, anonymous blogger. I'll bite. Let's have a look at your reasoning.

1. Microsoft is increasing servers.
Yep. Microsoft has a whole lot of servers. The Azure network was launched 3 years ago and Xbox One gets to share it with all MS-dom. Sony also has a buttload of servers. Fantastic. Important, because next gen is clearly going to be decided by how many servers each company has. /s

2. A bit confused here. So, Sony games also on the PC don't count, and indie games don't count, plus indie games are on the Xbox One but indie games are also on the PC. But PC games don't count because we can get them on the PC. And aren't a fair number of Xbox One games also coming to the PC?

Can anyone figure out what he's blabbering about here?

3. Xbox One has made many changes so really there's no difference between the two now. Well, great! If there's no difference, buy a PS4 and save yourself $100 you can spend on games! Wait, if there's no difference now, why did you write this article?

4. No one can deny the Xbox One lineup is better. I can. The PS4 launch lineup is clearly better. Hey, buy offering up what you did, an opinion based on personal preference, I totally ruined your statement! No one can deny it? I just did! And my opinion is just as valid as yours! But yeah, I find the PS4's 33 game launch lineup far and away more interesting than the Xbox One's 23 games. Well, fewer if you take away the Kinect only nonsense.

5. "Again, it’s just all about the games.." Ah yuh! Ok then! Cause when you dismiss pretty much all games running on a PS4, guess what! It doesn't have more launch games, it has less. Genius!

Why are we reading opinions from anonymous, random bloggers again? Someone want to explain how this was approved?
BG11579  +   363d ago
How many exclusif games came out to the 360 this year?
Gamer666  +   363d ago
1. Dedicated cloud servers will be an important part of the gen. And MS does it as a business whereas sony does it for their one service.

2. Sony fanboys made the rules last gen and now they want to change them... When Xbox fanboys would talk about L4D exclusive, sony fanboys would say PC games didn't count, when Xbox fanboys would talk about XBLA and indie games sony fanboys said only retail counts.

3. There is a difference, one is made by sony and one by MS. Although I have no particular long term loyalty, I will pay more to buy an MS device then pay less for sony crap.

4. Buy a PC (you probably already have one and Sony's 33 games becomes more like 15-20... And MS' launch lineup is better... Forza > Drive Club, DR3 + Ryse > KZ + Knack, and all of the digital games look to be better than the few Sony true exclusives (Although I am interested in Counterspy and Resogun... But N++, Minecraft, and Pinball Arcade are already on more than one other platform (In fact all 3 are on 360, even though 360 lacks on DLC for Pinball Arcade). Blacksite had a release on 360. War Thunder, Warframe, and Planetside 2 are on PC so are not exclusive. Contrast is shipping on 360 and PS3 as well so it is not exclusive. Motherload is a web game that can be played on pretty much any browser device. Tiny Brains will also ship on PC so it is not exclusive. So you are down to Counterspy, the DC Universe port to PS4, Doki-Doki Universe, Hohokum, Pool Nation, and Resogun... That is up against the following probable download titles on X1... Lococycle, Peggle 2 (timed exclusive), Killer Instinct, Zoo Tycoon, Crimson Dragon, Powerstar Golf, and Fighter Within... All new versions and none will ship on other platforms before or simultaneously with X1. Lococyle by Twisted Pixel will probably provide enough gameplay to run circles around the Sony digital lineup. Nevermind the full featured fighting game Killer Instinct.

5. Sony fanboys made the rules for exclusives and counting games last gen... People are just opening their eyes and seeing sony's tricks now.

Hey, this is N4G... The place where a typo on the MS web site that has Destiny as an exclusive became the hottest article of the day a few days back.
darkride66  +   363d ago
Yeah, you lost me with your "fanboys, fanboys, fanboys." If you can't make a counter argument without pointing fingers and labeling other gamers, you need to rethink your points.

And come on. You're just as bad as this guy. If a game is on the PC, it suddenly doesn't exist? You criticize "Sony fanboys" for doing this last gen, and then make the exact same argument. It was ridiculous when that point was made last gen, it's ridiculous now. Because a title is also on the PC doesn't mean it doesn't exist on consoles.

And "I will pay more to buy an MS device then pay less for sony crap"? Yeah, there's a well thought, intelligent argument concerning the merits of both consoles.

Seriously, where do some of you guys come from? What's worse is you probably truly believe you're making valid points.

Funny thing is that you were never going to get a PS4 anyway. I like the deniability in this one just pointing out Knack and acting like having free to play games is a negative. Xbots always dwell in fallacy, most of the time having no reasoning to ignore the facts that the Xbox One is a disaster for having no vision or unique purpose, following the leader's footsteps. He's an example of why Xbots never mention games like The Last of Us or Infamous: Second Son in their sentences because deep inside it hurts so they have to ignore that they exist.

I like the lineup of the Xbox one so far. Dead Rising, KI, and Titanfall all make the Xbox a definite buy for me.

Unfortunately MS fucked that up with all that DRM crap and all their crazy ass policies. I'm sticking with Sony for now. You dont even need to buy a launch title on ps4 with all the free to play stuff.
Besides its about the potential of the system to me. God of War, Uncharted, and all the other mind blowing first party games are ONLY coming to ps4 so its a must buy for me. No hesitation.
For launch its a ps4, let the fanboys buy the Xbox and test their "new policies"....then I'll get one when the smoke clears.

Regardless of whether or not I get an xbox , 4 will ALWAYS greater than One IMO.

SpecialSauce  +   363d ago
I think it is very easy to argue the launch lineup is in sony's favor, but that would be pointless because the only people reading this article are those too proud to admit Microsoft just screwed up their launch and probably their platform this generation. I think last generation got some people confused, with playstation having the responsibility of carrying blu ray into every home; it took a huge stress on its market share as a game console (late launch and unique hardware). This new generation will return everything back to normal and Sony will once again dominate the video game console industry.

Wow Donny.. you totally took what I said out of context and tried VERY hard to troll me. Funny but you failed miserably. I never said anything about being in 4th place nimrod. I said 4 is greater than one which is THE NUMBER 4 being higher on the list, OR GREATER than One. Then again, judging by your dumbass reply, I can see it must be tough to count. I mean with all those numbers and stuff right?

Look simpleton, its a metaphor for stating my opinion on the ps4 being greater than the Xbox one. The IMO part stands for IN MY OPINION. MY opinion.
Funny how you say my comment was stupid but then go on to say "everybody wants to be the one, the only one, the first.." So what you're telling me is everyone wants to be a console.
Then you say Xbox is number one...WHAT? The 360 had a YEAR IN SALES over the ps3 and the ps3 STILL outsells it to this day. Fail...just...plain....FAIL.
Thanks for helping me realize why you want an Xbox so bad though, the only number you can count to is in the title! A perfect reason to buy a console!

Sony will roll out great game after great game after great game.
MS hasn't released a game with a metacritic of 95% or higher since 2007. naughty dog has this year and if history shows anything they will continue to make the best in exclusives into this gen.
and this time even 3rd party will be better on the PS4 so really is no point in a X1, unless flailing your arms to kinect is appealing that is.

"It takes a strong man to deny what's right in front of him..." - John Konrad. Spec-Ops: The Line~

As a means of me seeing how sad it is, that Xbox fanboys are literally blinding themselves with fallacies and are blatantly, LITERALLY saying: "PS4 has no games". I'd not even think people like Ksar are joking, they have to delude themselves so much that they literally believe anything that reinforces their emotive beliefs that their purchase of another console is So Much Smarter in spite of competition and oppositional-Fanboys. That they have to tell themselves PS4 has no games and leave it there.

Embarrassing, really. The sad ego, the sad characteristics of Xbox fanboys going to such lows to reinforce their self-esteem. This isn't the first time I've seen an xbox fanboy just completely ignore the PS4's solid lineup and just blind themselves with misinformation just to cope with the redundant reality that PS4 is infact a better choice and that they as a fanboy, cannot rejoice that their Alternate purchase has 'Superior reasoning', as such, they blindly keep telling themselves out loud that their decision is the Best, Period and to argue with them is to be a troll, Sony fanboy or someone who doesn't accept Their individual illusions.

Mounce  +   363d ago
Yea, true enough. I'd rather keep PS4's Userbase similar to that of PS3. More catered to a maturer, older audience rather than 360. Before any 360 fanboys attack me on telling me to prove what I say, I easily recall the study done early in this generation that proved it statistically:

http://wiimedia.ign.com/wii...

Main Link: http://ca.ign.com/articles/...

Ages 10-26 play 360 by 62%
Ages 27+? play 360 by 19-20%.... Because majority are on PS3. All those 10-26 year olds generally act the same. Only a minority of people that age would be the type who aren't the immature screaming type you hear all the time on COD or Halo.

So - More maturer users on PS4, like PS3? Yes please.

People will regret it when Sony announces the titles from Naughty Dog, Media Molecule, Santa Monica, and the other titles that are being developed by Quantic Dream and Guerrilla Games.

Think about it this way, I know tons of people who got the Xbox360 first and then cried later when they saw PS3 with God of War, Uncharted, Last of Us, Beyond: Two Souls, and Infamous.

Moral is, don't let the launch lineup draw you in and have you miss out on the best titles of the system which always come out later.

Lol at a all of you saying you pre-ordered a PS4 and is now switching over to X1. Its more like you all never had one pre-ordered from the start and never intended to buy one anyway. This is the interweb, 99% of the things people tend to tell each other is a bold face lie. And are you really going to get all the exclusives from either list? Like really you'll buy 1 or 2 games with that $500 console 1 or more being multiplat, because we all know COD is going to sell, then you'll buy your gold subscription. I don't know why your trying so hard to convince people you making a the smart and logical choice. All your doing is paying $100 more for inferior hardware and more or less has the same launch library as the cheaper and better competition. And if Sony and MS's track record has proven Sony in the long run will continue to pump out quality games while expanding on all their other services. MS will deliver the games for maybe 3-4 years then focus and those great TV services you'll only have access to with a gold account. It ain't to late to pull your mouth out from between MS's legs. Sony and Nintendo will take care of you.

There is no indication that the PS4 will only have indie games and not a large amount of hard core games, I mean Sony has twelve studios of its own and will probably have more support from Japanese studios and will have all the north American and European hard core games.

Your comparison is probably the worst fanboy nonsense I've seen since E3 ROFLMAO!

All of the comparisons are even different types of games. A futuristic shooter vs a heavy story based medevil weapons based game, then an E rated Family adventure platformer game vs. a Zombie action game. Just brilliant! I heard Space-X is hiring you should apply there rocket scientist

But what's not opinion is how Ubisoft is giving the PS3 and PS4 exclusive game play for Watch Dogs and AC4 BF and those are 3rd party games at launch. Aside from the exclusive line up. How about Bungie ( MS's Halo ) giving the PS4 exclusive content for Destiny already?

i know everyone is jumping on this blu ray player but 7/8 years ago blu rays were unproven they were a risk Sony took and it paid off huge theres no doubt about it but it was still a risk and had it failed then Sony would have been left with a drive that had no use beyond the PS3

MS played the safe game by just including the CD/DVD drive in the console, the CD/DVD at the time was a proven format and everybody was using them. MS tried to swing the market in their favour with the HD Drive but we all know how that turned out

MS couldn't just replace the drive after the Blu Ray proved a success because it would have screwed over the however many million users before Blu Ray got established as the new CD Format

are MS using the blu ray drive now yes because it has been well established as the market standard now but in a parallel universe maybe the Blu Ray failed and they're still using CDs

Blu-ray won the format war. The PS3 was given all it's content on one disc. Even Game of the year editions. Blu-ray movies, how do they look compared? Games like MGS4 only on the PS3? Why at the time?

Sony takes chances because they are a world leader in video gaming industry. So MS changed their policies due to Sony, their format drive because of Sony. They entered into the video game world because of Sony. Because Sony has the number 1 and the number 2 best selling consoles of all time. The PS3 outsold the Xbox 360 as well. Even with a on year later launch date and without a worldwide launch to start. MS wanted a piece of that action, yet has never topped Sony in anything.

I posted this above, but it was in reply to a person who was marked for trolling so I copy/pasted down here...

"1. Microsoft is increasing the amount of servers they have from 15,000 to 300,000. This should really decrease the stress on developers because they will no longer have to maintain their own servers. This could allow older games to have multiplayer for longer and tons of other things."

Virtual servers, shared with other MS products, and not all games will use them. They aren't free to use and EA, for instance, has their own.

"2. When Sony announced all of the new games, and I’m talking about for launch, I already have most of them on my PC (Warframe, Don’t Starve, etc.) and I could buy most of the ones that I don’t have on my PC at any time without purchasing a PS4. I love indie games, but the Xbox is open to indies as well and will always choose PC first anyways."

Somewhat valid reasoning, unless you just want to play those games on your big screen TV without hooking your PC up to it. Also, several games are F2P and playable online without a PS+ membership so it can't really be considered much of a negative.

"3. Microsoft has made so many changes with the Xbox One that their really isn’t that big of a difference between them. The Xbox One is honestly just a better decision at launch."

Not much difference except a $100 price difference, which is mainly because of a camera that most people didn't want this gen. Now it's mandatory to buy it, even if you'll never use it. Overall, you're paying more for weaker hardware.

"4. Nobody can deny that the launch lineup of the Xbox One is better than the PS4. The one game that I was looking forward to on PS4 on launch night was Outlast, which I will be able to get on my PC next month."

Anyone can deny that the One's launch lineup is better, because it's entirely subjective.

"5. Again, it’s just all about the games… things may change in the future and the tables may turn, but until then… XBOne all the way!"

People who buy two games and a PS+ membership for PS4 at launch will be playing 5 or 6 games over the next few months, without buying another title.

Can't blame anyone for getting an X1. It's going to be great. I just think more gamers right now are in the PS4 camp, and sales will show that. Nothing wrong with those great launch games on the X1 though. It's just that none of them really catch my attention as much as what I expect from Naughty Dog and Santa Monica this next gen. Forza looks great, and Halo 5 will be awesome, but a game like The Last of Us makes me more loyal to a console that is $100 cheaper and has had the same focus from day one. But to be able to play Forza on day one makes sense for me though. :) PS4 for me though

You know what I did when the 360 went into its drought? Bought a PS3 to enjoy their games that I had not got to play yet. And, guess what, I will do the exact same thing now if the One has a drought and go buy a PS4 to play more games.

Why should someone pay for something they will get no enjoyment from for months, when they could, like me, wait till it goes down in price and has the games that interest me.

I'm sorry but Microsoft launch line up being better is a matter of opinion.They have only one exclusive i'm intersted in.Also so what if the indie games will come out on pc that doesn't devalue the appeal they'll have.

Good for them. PS4 since day 1 and yesterday's gamecom knocked it out of the park for me (loved the remote play demo, vita markdowns, indies coming to PS4 and PSVita).

It's looking to be a good holiday season for all gamers regardless if they are #teamMS or #teamSony.

CHEERS!

if you run a site wouldn't you be getting both? this just makes them sound super biased.

The PS4 launch line up isn't good enough for me, i'll be holding on to my PS3 for a little while longer until something like Fallout 4 gets announced

GTAV, Dark Souls 2, FFXHD and Beyond will keep me happy for a little while

Man N4G needs a way to down vote articles. I am getting tired of fan boy pieces.

How about this buy what "you want"....no need to tell "us".
We will let the numbers tell the story later on. It is too late in the game now to be making these to try and make people believe they chose "wrong". Nobody is going to make a wrong choice and the console war thing is stupid. The only thing that irks me how "some" of you think MS crap does not stink. They do make good products in the gaming arena but from these next-gen reveals they are no longer further ahead of the game. You have real competition now deal with it.

Exactly why does the whole world need to know that you suddenly have changed your console pre-order. hey if everyone's doing it i was going to have coco pops this morning but i decided to go with oats as there was not enough milk

You can down vote articles and sites. Just click the site name under the Read Full Story text above. N4G loves its flame bait but they always seem to be the most popular articles so I guess the users like them as well.

Personally I'll take Killzone over Ryse, Knack over anything Kinect, and all those F2P MMOs over killer instinct and Forza, the only one I would like to play is Dead Rising 3, but even that one doesnt merit a $500 purchase. The fact that with the PS4 the minute you buy it youll have access to 14 days of PS+ for you to DL a bunch of free games on PS3 and start playing F2P games right off the bat, makes more sense to me than the xbone

Infamous who? Why people keep talking about this game like is the best thing ever. First two were good but not great.
GdaTyler  +   363d ago
Infamous series was awesome what are you even talking about. Anyways don't criticize it. You don't see me criticizing Xbox One's games.

@GdaTyler

I never switched, MS had all the right games and a true next gen vision. I might get a PS4 down the line when some games come out but if all they have is KZ and Driveclub... Then they are in for a lot of trouble. X1 is king of FPS so I wont miss KZ one bit, and drive club will be in Forzas Shadow... All other games are multi-plat and look identical.

I have no desire for indy games at the launch of a next gen console. I want games that show me the power of what I purchased. X1 will have the indy games as well so there is no comparison here when it comes to "launch" titles.

All this trash talking Sony has been doing seems desperate. I thought they had a good line up until I saw the official version. LACKLUSTER TO SAY THE LEAST...
GdaTyler  +   363d ago
I won't bother arguing because I will get attacked. All I say is that I disagree.
Clarence  +   363d ago
The writer always wanted to get a Xbox 1 plan and simple. Any real Playstation fan knows that Sony is going to bring the hammer when it come to games. They've been doing it all gen.

Those Xbox 1 games were going to be on the 360 M$ just moved them over to the Xbox 1. M$ will fall off with games just like they did with the 360.

Desperate! M$ has changed every policy they announced since e3. Every Xbox 1 now will come equipped with bluray. Now they love indies, and giving away FIFA. Might add the PS3 is still cheaper with a game.

Ps3 had bluray 7yrs ago and Sony has not backtracked on policies.
M$ is the one that's desperate.

Xbox is king of FPS because that's all Xbox fans want to play.
