Games Line-up Will Make Xbox One A Success, Insists Microsoft

The reason you will plump for the Xbox One over the PS4 is the games, says Microsoft's Harvey Eagle, even though gaming makes up only half of the entertainment features on offer.

(Meant to respond to Maria)

Yeah but its also about the breadth of core experiences. I mean, lets be honest, if Halo was being released at launch I think its safe to assume that its pre-orders would eclipse those of Killzone, judging by the former game's past pedigree.

Look at the other PS4 exclusives according to your link:

*Knack- 40,982
*Drive Club- (no mention)
And err... wait, that's it? Why isn't Infamous on that list?

But look at the launch titles on the X1:

* Ryse- 57,962
* Killer Instinct (no mention)
* Dead Rising 3- 61,254
* Forza 5- 56,201

I mean, the launch line-up for the X1 looks far superior to me. It's the reason why I'm buying the X1 first.

Sony keeps promising new things, but theres is nothing besides indies, just like the vita. I own all consoles and im letdown by all these indies, but i want ps4 on day 1 and x1 on day1, lol.

For 5 months we only get driveclub , a bunch of indies i know ill never play due to being expensive, killzone, knack and infamous....i only care about infamous from this list and im not 100% sure ill buy a console for 1 exclusive i want. We have no idea when 1886 will launch neither about the dark sorcerer. But ill probably get disagrees because im right.

Indies are important on a launching system. How many exclusives (or any game for that matter) are you going to buy at launch (and the weeks after) when you just put down $400+ on a system. This is where indies and F2P comes in as you don't need to spend that much extra (indies usually cost less than a $60 game and F2P is well free) to keep trying new things and games.

What Microsoft and Sony are doing with their exclusives is filling the gap left by the third parties to make their console have a broad mass market appeal. Indies and F2P will be a life line for a system especially in its first year

sincitysir11450d ago

Ur only right because it's what YOU want. U can get wtv u want child u do not need papas opinion! But in case u seek it and desperately want it *whisper* I approve =]

malokevi1450d ago

"Indies are important on a launching system."

Since when? Example?

voodoogts1450d ago

So you buy a nexgen console at launch just to play indie games that have mediocre graphics? Lol

Cogan11450d ago (Edited 1450d ago )

@malokevi

since always, I got the PS3 at launch (Still my No.1 console) and there was only a handful of games available with pretty Much NO indies. You played what you had or exclusives you bought. Having so many indies and f2p games this time along with the exclusives that's coming for launch is a massive difference that is only another plus for the PS4.

DebateMaster1450d ago (Edited 1450d ago )

Starting in 2014 the PS4s superior 1st party support will start to outshine the competion. Sony has already confirmed all its studios are working on ps4 launch games. Meanwhile MS is relying on timed exclusives over and over again. Eventually companies will realize this is bad and see more profit in the ps4 because it will undoubtedly have a larger install base than the one. This is why the timed exclusive and 3rd party exclusive strategy will backfire. This will be the ps3 and 360 allover again. The 360 had have good support for the 3 years but 3rd party companies a andoned it to produce for PS while Sony still produced exclusive for the ps3 and destroyed the 3y6 in this category. The PS3 still has exclusive support from Sony while MS abandoned the 360 because the can buy timed exclusives because of the install base of the competition and have no 1st party games in development.

This year is the perfect example what good 360 exclusive came out this year? Just gears judgement. While the ps3 had 10 already. The same will repeat itself with the ps4 and Xbox one because of MS and its selfish timed exclusive strategy. Instead of investing in 1st part studios and finding new talent and making exclusives they instead bribe other companies with money and limit the experience of other consoles to which only helps its fanboys(look at titanfall). This will backfire with the xb one like it did with the 360.

"since always, I got the PS3 at launch (Still my No.1 console) and there was only a handful of games available with pretty Much NO indies. "

So, your example of a launch where indies were important is... a launch with no indies?

That's... ah, fug it. There are no examples. Your saying that indies would have made the PS4 launch better?

How about more AAA titles? You know, the good stuff, that demonstrates the hardware.

I'd rather play classics on my Wii than any indie on PS3/XB360.

ThanatosDMC1449d ago

^Just check out Minecraft 360.

ShinMaster1449d ago

The cool new thing for Xbox fanatics is to put down indie games.
Wow.

Because Infamous isn't a launch title.

blitz06231450d ago (Edited 1450d ago )

Titanfall isn't a launch title either. My guess is that InFamous cannot be preordered yet? I think it's impossible for it not to be on that list

Skips1450d ago (Edited 1450d ago )

@nick309

"Sony keeps promising new things"

Sorta like how MS kept promising "new things" for the past 4 years at their E3 conferences???

@Septic

Why include Killer Instinct??? How can you track pre orders for a small @$$ F2P/XBLA title??? (Not to mention it's coming from a horrible indie dev that hasn't made a good game since, ever) lmao Talk about trying to fluff up the lineup... Why don't you include all the other PSN exclusive games releasing on PS4 day one then?

And DriveClub is given away for free on PS+ (Even if it's not all of it)... You know, the part where Sony gives out AAA games on PS+ as an incentive to SUBSCRIBE???
-__-

Septic1450d ago

Calm down mate. Killer Instinct is a fully fledged fighter not "a small @$$ F2P/XBLA title" as much as you would like to believe it to be so.

Name me one fighting game of that pedigree releasing on PS4.

BigShotSmoov0071450d ago

DriveClub is a AAA game? Since when?

Skips1450d ago (Edited 1450d ago )

@BigShotSmoov007

DriveClub:

vs.
Forza 5
http://a.pomf.se/3El1.gif

Yup, pretty sure it's triple AAA...

Septic1450d ago

@Skips

Lol the irony here, I have played both Forza and Drive Club. Let me tell you this right now; as opposed to being someone regurgitating gifs on the internet, I can attest to the quality of both titles first hand and visually, Forza wiped the floor with Drive Club. There was simply no comparison.

"Killer Instinct is a fully fledged fighter not "a small @$$ F2P/XBLA title" as much as you would like to believe it to be so."

- It's free to download (albeit with one character)... -__-

- Not having full retail release... -__-

- And it's being made by a garbage indie dev that hasn't made a good game, since ever... -__- (I thought indies don't count) lol

...Ok buddy...

"Name me one fighting game of that pedigree"

Of WHAT pedigree exactly??? It's being made by Double Helix... lol. This is like me hyping up a PSN exclusive F2P title, being made by Slant Six.

Septic1450d ago (Edited 1450d ago )

Its free to download? So what? First you guys call it a demo then you call it free to play. Which one is it?

Have you even played Killer Instinct? I have.

So what if it's made by Double Helix? Anyone who has played it or is objective enough (this excludes you) to look at the game for what it is, will know that the game looks incredibly promising. As a beat-em-up fan, I'm well excited.

Do you even game?

" This is like me hyping up a PSN exclusive F2P title, being made by Slant Six."

Slant what? The difference here is everyone knows about Killer Instinct. Its been eagerly anticipated for a reason.

http://www.youtube.com/watc...

Go on then...name me one fighter on the PS4 that can go toe to toe with Killer Instinct. Shouldn't be hard seeing as you say KI is being made by a 'garbage dev'.

saint_seya1449d ago

To help u septic, i can name blaz blue for ps3 that will be 100 times better, happy? i dont even need a next gen console to beat that game.
You remember the final of street fighter tournament, i do.. your great fighting game recibed a nice "boooo boooo" from the people there, and guess what, those guys are profesional players, that play what kind of games? FIGHTING GAMES

svoulis1450d ago (Edited 1450d ago )

You have to be kidding me. You don't even included the fact that COD is pre-ordered most on PS4 over Xbox One (Do you even realize how big that is as far as gaming goes, I don't care if you're a COD fan or not but COD hasn't ever sold or been pre-ordered more on a Sony console over Microsoft). You don't include that every game that is 3rd party is surpassing the Xbox one on PS4?

Over 100k more for BF4?
Over 49k more for Watchdogs?
Over 50k more for AC Black Flag.

Killzone is pre-ordered with almost the same numbers as COD GHOST for Xbox One.

I mean defend your favorite console all you want, but PLEASE for the love of whatever you believe in make the argument valid.

You also forgot to mention this is just the US sale charts not global.

Look to me its play what you want, get all of them if you can; But if you are going to use numbers include them as a whole and don't make them look better then they are.

Microsoft's BIG IP for launch is Ryse and Dead rising 3, and lets do the math here..shall we

Ryse + DR3 + Forza 5 = 175,417

vs

Killzone: Shadow Fall - 221,710

JUST ONE GAME surpasses all 3.

EDIT: You guys can go on and spam that disagree button all you want until you're pointer finger falls off for all I care. NUMBERS TELL MORE TRUTH over fanboyism. That is all I am saying. SO enjoy pressing it and with every ounce of being in your body, deeply regret knowing you're still wrong.

EDIT 2: To save some of my bubbles Septic, you should just stop, really just stop. Now you are saying things like "name me one fighter blah blah toe to toe."

YOU HAVEN'T EVEN PLAYED THE GAME YET ARE YOU KIDDING ME. JUST...do yourself a favor...and STOP.

You, wanna post videos and stuff here ya go.

^That video is of Killer Instinct getting booed at EVO...You know the well known very large FIGHTING TOURNAMENT?

I mean..FFS you guys are getting ridiculous.
/end of discussion.

DiRtY1450d ago

Just like Halo 4 outsold all 2012 PS3 exclusives combined...

Septic1450d ago

What are you on about? I've just mentioned the numbers on there for reference purposes. That's why I've listed Infamous and Drive Club there because no figures were provided. I've clearly stated:

"Yeah but its also about the breadth of core experiences."

So now numbers matters do they? We used to hear this a lot about how Xbox fanboys were obsessed with numbers, but they only matter when they shine favorably for the Sony camp?

I'm not denying that KZ:SF is selling really well. But I'm talking about the exclusives that are coming to the X1 hence why I said:

"I mean, the launch line-up for the X1 looks far superior to me. It's the reason why I'm buying the X1 first."

But tell me, if the next Halo was a launch title, do you honestly think Killzone would out-sell it? And if KZ didn't do so, what does that say about Killzone?

No_Limit1450d ago (Edited 1450d ago )

So when did N4G start having interest and think so highly of Pre-Order Chartz from VGchartz of all places?

During this generation when X360 games were out-pre-ordering the PS3 on the chartz, that segment of VGcahrtz was like Wii news on N4G.

I just got to laugh sometime about how things work around here.

Septic1450d ago

@svoulis

***YOU HAVEN'T EVEN PLAYED THE GAME YET ARE YOU KIDDING ME. JUST...do yourself a favor...and STOP. ***

What? I have played the game. I'll post the video of me playing it on my site tonight if you want. Wanna place a bet here for all to see?

***^That video is of Killer Instinct getting booed at EVO...You know the well known very large FIGHTING TOURNAMENT? ***

Everyone knows that, the reason why it got booed is because of the poor decision to interrupt the SF4 and Marvel finals.

What about this video eh?

http://www.youtube.com/watc...

What now?

Skips1450d ago (Edited 1450d ago )

@DiRtY

What else IS there to buy but Halo on the 360 these days...

lol

svoulis here on N4Xbox you will only receive insults from the huge amount of Xbox fanboys that control this site.Rarely will they counter facts with facts.And we all know why.

DebateMaster1450d ago

Its funny because the pre order stats are us only (MSs dominant territory. Imagine the rest of the world. Let's not forget dead rising and titan fall games will definitely show up on PlayStation the way preorders are looking.

saint_seya1449d ago

Septic, u said if halo was there, then we could say, if gt6 was there.. and if x game was there, and if .. U know the key word here is "IF"--
Its not there, so doesnt matter.
Whats the point of debating about launch games, if we are going to talk of games that are not IN THE LAUNCH

"First you guys call it a demo"

http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...
Pretty sure that's what MS called it. -_-
I'm actually being generous calling it F2P... lol Sounds a lot better than "demo" right?

"Have you even played Killer Instinct?"
Classics? Yup...

"So what if it's made by Double Helix? Anyone who has played it or is objective enough (this excludes you) to look at the game for what it is, will know that the game looks incredibly promising. As a beat-em-up fan, I'm well excited."

Then this goes for every PSN exclusive that isn't being made by a garbage indie dev right???

I just find it hilarious how you find it convenient to add Killer Instinct, an XBLA game being made by an indie, but at the same time, disregard EVERY SINGLE INDIE EXCLUSIVE (Timed/or not) that Sony showed. lol

creatchee1450d ago

Double Helix is not an indie by any stretch of the imagination - they're third party.
