The 15 Launch Games Only Available on Xbox One or PS4 Consoles

Gizmag: ''At last week's Gamescom, Sony and Microsoft revealed a whopping 56 games that will launch on the same day as their respective consoles – 23 for the Xbox One and 33 for the PlayStation 4. But wait just one second, let's take a closer look at that list. Call of Duty: Ghosts? Assassin's Creed IV? Madden NFL 25? Most of these are releasing on the Xbox 360 and PS3 as well, and some are already out right now. In fact, if you strip away the games that will also be available on current consoles, PCs, and mobile devices, you're left with 15 games in total that will require a next-gen console to play when they're released. So the real question is, would any of these titles convince you to make the leap to next-gen?'' (PS4, Xbox One)

XB1 might have better exclusive launch, but the games coming soon after favor the PS4 slightly.

Wii U's lineup will compete with these just fine.

Since infamous is not a day 1 launch title, if I had to choose only one console based off this list I'd Fo with the X1 easily

Since I only need 1-3 games on the first day and I dont base a console purchase on what I can get that first day, more like whats going to be available throughout its first year, its total lifespan and how well theyve supported their other consoles in the past if I had to choose only one console I'd go with the PS4, easily.

Well that's good for you. But since I'm a primary 360 user and there's nothing of interest on the ps4 side imo ill go with what I like. See? Easy...

if you are only in it for instant gratification go right ahead and get the x1. Some of us have patience, and it helps that day one 2 of those 6 sony exclusives are free.

Wtf? Since when is waiting for a certain game to come out a requirement to buying a new system? I buy what I like and what I like will be right in front of me on launch day. And when those games I'm waiting for finally drop ill only need to buy the game not a game and system. But enjoy waiting while I enjoy playing.

Here is an easy way to decide which console to buy. Get whatever your friends have.

I keep hearing all this talk on launch games but why? Launch games hardly matter at all, the main thing that matters is what games are going to be made later in the consoles life. The dreamcast and vita had amazing launch titles, but look what happened to the dreamcast and what's happening to the vita. Terrible sales.

Based on Sony's past i have no doubt they will put out quality games. Microsoft on the other hand they do have great launch title and IMO better launch titles than sony this time around, but say 3-5 years in will there still be many of these good games being made? Based on the 360 and original xbox probably not unless of course Microsoft really steps up their game this generation.

That is why the ps4 will be my main console. In the future i may get the xbox one but that all depends if Microsoft can impress me with what they do with the console and what games they will offer.
