PS4 and Xbox One launch lineup exclusive games compared

Dali Dimovski of SideQuesting writes:

"We started by compiling a list of the 38 launch titles of the next gen, comparing the games of the Playstation 4 and the Xbox One. We marked which consoles are getting what games, and which of those games are coming to (or are already available) on other consoles like Wii U, Xbox 360, PS3 or PC.

As vaunted as the next generation is, there really aren’t a ton of exclusives for either side." (Driveclub, Forza Motorsport 5, Killer Instinct, Killzone: Shadow Fall, PC, PS3, PS4, Ryse: Son of Rome, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

I'm more interested in the second wave. Wii U only had a few games and it wasn't good at all. I think that Microsoft has a better launch line up than Sony, but I have a feeling the Xbox will end up a few months like the Wii U, while PS4 will have some games. After all, Sony haven't announced a lot of games from most of their teams.

Yep, Xbox takes the win. As soon as it launches there's already 4 killer exclusives waiting to be played (KI, DR3, Forza, Ryse). Then there's Titanfall and another 10 exclusives waiting in 2014. Xbox One day one.

You should know by now that the games will stop coming after a few years. It'll be x360 all over again.
black0o  +   849d ago
i'm sorry to inform u that KZ alone out selling all those killers exclusive AT MS strongest market US in the pre-oders So FAR ..

so u can image what's happening Worldwide where PS brand rules or when ND,SSM..etc start announcing their IPs

@black0o Killzone is selling well because it's the only PS4 exclusive launch game that looks decent. The choice is easy for PS4 users. X1 users have more choices so they're still deciding which exclusive to buy.

@Funantic1 LOL I remember a time when 360 fanboys such as yourself would mock PS3 fans for stating the EXACT same thing when the 360 literally had like only ONE game the whole year. I love how the tables have turned. :)
Xone buyers have already decided what they wanted... Call of Duty it appears. Lol

@black0o You do know KZ is not a massive seller don't you? KZ3 sold less than 2 and 2 only reached around 2.9 million. Forza has sold more than this reaching 4 or more million sine Forza 2. Look at the PSV version of the KZ game this did not hit the sales people were saying it was.

It will sell well but I don't see it outselling all the Xbox One exclusives.
gaffyh  +   849d ago
Xbone does have more exclusives at launch, but I still would prefer Killzone over any individual of the games in the Xbone lineup. However, inFAMOUS is where it is at for me, and is easily the best game in the near future for both systems.
maddskull  +   849d ago
i see many games that are for the ps4 but not the xbox one and the ps4 titles are always great kz shadowfall is better than modt of your exclusive titles and knack is great and i actually think that it is better than ryse but you people dont know the meaning of these games
ALLWRONG  +   849d ago
Killzone and a few indies are pretty much all the PS4 has.
supes_24  +   849d ago
Actually neither lineup looks good to me. KZ, never liked the series. Knack, not my type of game. KI, DR3... Never cared for any of those. Ruse looks good but it's not a system seller for sure. I'm waiting for infamous second son and exclusives from Sony nthosenaremalways top notch IMO.

Titanfall , Only on PC

for me anyway....
Gaming_Guru  +   849d ago
At: georgeenood

Titanfall isn't an exclusive hence why it isn't in the list, it's also for the PC and XBOX 360. XBOX controllers were never really good with fighters, so it would be interesting if the new controller is any different.
FamilyGuy  +   849d ago
Killzone, DriveClub, Knack, DCU Online, FF14 Arr, Injustice, Resogun, WarFrame, Blacklight Retrobution > X1 exclusives

Just sayin >.>

The only noteworthy X1 games are Dead Rising and Forza

@insomnium2 Don Mattrick is out , I don't think you can say Microsoft will not release games the year later , there was great games in 2005 and 2006 until EA failed and Don Mattrick changed his approach so he went to Microsoft and became the head of the Xbox division , after that no games were available until he agreed with the game , did you know that Heavy Rain was gonna be on the Xbox 360 but Don Mattrick deny it for the child kidnaping reason , he was the problem all along

evilhasitsway  +   849d ago
titan fall is basically a timed exclusive cause its coming to pc for sure and there has been talk of it coming to ps4 so I really wouldn't call it a exclusive and on top of that most like 90%of "x1 exclusives" will be coming to the pc they usally do look at fable on 360 came to pc after awhile. sonys on the other hand will only be on sony sytems.

and yes even though im a sony fan do too going through like 4 360s in the first 6months of its release due to red ring of death I will say x1 does have a better launch line up but that is most likely the best exclusives they will have just like they did with the 360 it had games at first then they just kinda stopped and all you got was second and third party games. and as for sony they just kept and still continues to put exclusives out I mean they just ended with bang on exclusives with the last of us and beyond just saying and what did ms go out with call of duty and a shity halo.

Neither line up is super stellar, that doesn't mean the Xbox One got a better one though. Ps4s line up seems way more diverse. Xbox one games isn't looking to impressive; Ryses gameplay looks really poopy, Forza sacrificed staple racing visuals to hit 1080p (using static lighting, reflection etc). Killer instict is a 2.5D fighter that can't hit higher than 720p (wth?) and Dead Rising is running sub 30fps.. Forza being the only game actually made in house at MS

LOL i posted this reply

Look at the disagrees on georgeenoob that proves that this is a total playstation fanboy site and i been here a good long while.

And the playstaion fanboys got it hidden because they dont like the truth. The fact is the xbox fanboys were chased from this site by a coordinatied PS fanboys debubbling effort and they just did the same to me. The fact is this is a PS fanboy site thats just a fact so stop being a bunch of babies that hide from the truth.
MASTER_RAIDEN  +   849d ago
right with ya brother! this is a point i cant stress enough.
i think WAY too many people put too much enthuses on launch lineup strength. to them its not about having a great launch lineup. its about having a greatER launch lineup than the competition. as long as the brand i choose has great software from beginning to end, i couldnt care less about when that software actually comes, ya know?
the launch lineup of the playstation 4 had very little to do with me deciding to pick up the console on launch day. what WAS the deciding factor was the amount of monstrous IP's i know sony has under its belt that are just waiting to see releases on ps4.

both consoles have great launch lineups, but i dont think any company out there has the sheer amount of AAA franchises that playstation does. i dont need 10 AAA games in by the first quarter of 2014 if it means all the decent IPs are used up.

"old games that i have been playing on my pc for a long time"

So? You can not play those games on X1.

"rest are indies"

So now WarFrame, Blacklight: Retribution and War thunder are not good because they are indies? lol

I have more fun playing Indie games on my PC than "aaa" games.

@come_bom Keyword... Is Games you can play on the console that u can not play on the other.

- Killzone SF - Good
- DriveClub - Meh
- Knack - Meh x 10

- Tiny Brains - Indie game
- Switch Galaxy Ultra - Indie game
- Resogun - Indie game

- Yakuza Ishin - Not a launch title
- War thunder - PC game already released

Xbox one Launch tittles 7 games

If you take into account Titanfall, Fable legends, Project Spark, Sunset Overdrive, Halo 5 and Quantum Break in the first year, XB1 has a far better 1 year ahead than PS4 IMO...

The bigger Sony IP's will come (reason for me buying a PS4 as well) but to try and say that their lineup of Knack, Drive club and KZ trumps what MS is offering wreaks of Fanboy......Infamous is the game i'm looking forward to on the PS4.....

Both have a good launch line-up and because most consolegamers don't own a decent gaming PC (I think) it doesn't matter if some games are on PC as well, the games can still be a good reason to choose which console to buy, or buy first. Titanfall looks like a lot of fun.
But for me it's a PS4 first, 500 bucks and I'm done untill inFamous. 400 for the console, with PlanetSide 2 and Warthunder for free, 50 for Killzone (there's always a store with a discount) and another 50 for PS+ to play KZ online, and to get DriveClub for free. That's the console and 4 big games I just have to play for 500, and more coming with Plus over the year. Imo that's a good deal to start with, with a PS3 this was not a cheap year.
Of course, if PlanetSide and Warthunder are really that much fun I know I will end up spending money on them, and I shouldn't forget the 50 bucks for a current gen racer this december. They're going to get my money anyway:)
BlackTar187  +   849d ago

Can you confirm
Titanfall, Fable legends, Project Spark, Sunset Overdrive, Halo 5 and Quantum Break in the first year, XB1 has a far better 1 year ahead than PS4 IMO...

All those are coming within the first year?

Quantum break has no gameplay yet. Halo 5 was a cgi trailer so im not sure you can bank on those to be first year.
WarThunder  +   849d ago

"Killzone SF - Good
DriveClub - Meh
Knack - Meh x 10 "

Meh? Well if its meh for your. For other people these games are great. Like i said: preferences are subjective so leave it out.(Learn to read kido)

"Tiny Brains - Indie game
Switch Galaxy Ultra - Indie game
Resogun - Indie game"

Indie game? whats that suppose to mean? if a game is made by idie dev it automatically not good right?
PC is great platform because it has so many indie games and some indie game are way better than a "AAA" game.

"Yakuza Ishin - Not a launch title"

Yakuza Ishin is a launch title

You can preorder Yakuza Ishin at playasia.

"War thunder - PC game already released
WarFrame - PC game already released
DC Universe Online - PC game already released
PlanetSide 2 - PC game already released
Blacklight: Retribution - PC game already released"

SO? You can not play those games on the X1. Or wait console exclusive are not important now right? Oh and mention this games as a PC game, But yet you fail to mention TitanFall also a PC game... lol MS fanboy logic right there.

"If you take into account Titanfall, Fable legends, Project Spark, Sunset Overdrive, Halo 5 and Quantum Break in the first year, XB1 has a far better 1 year ahead than PS4 IMO... "

I can also say:

The order 1886
Infamouse second sun
Everybody's Gone to the Rapture
The Witness
Lords of the Fallen
Shadow of the Beast
Naughty Dog new game
Santa Monica new game
Media Molecule new game

"Knack, Drive club and KZ trumps what MS is offering wreaks of Fanboy......Infamous is the game i'm looking forward to on the PS4....."

So your trying to say that Dead Rising 3 FM5 and Ryse: Son of Rome are better than DriveClub, Knack and KZ SF and you posting your opinion as fact lol.

KILLZONE is going vs the two best seller's fps ever COD and BF and is selling amazing great!
FORZA is going against nothing and KZ is outselling it.

Downplay KILLZONE all you want but it has pretty visuals and fun gameplay, GG have done a great work!!! And number's talk for itself.

Ki is more of a Arcade game made by a low budget cheap dev

Knack is a ranched and clark kind of game and it will sale like one, noting special there.

DRising never sale well and it's nothing special, a fun game to play and xbone fanboys are making it look like if is GTA lol.

DRIVECLUB will be a fun racer and so will Forza,they will please racers fans.

Ryse is been made by fps devs that have done pretty buot boring games with cheap boring campaign and very boring gameplay,
is been hated by the media already and tagged as a very bad game.

So indeed KILLZONE is the game to get!!! Plus all the free to play game's and $100 saving is what making the PS4 win this race.

If KZ was not a reason like you guys claim, gamers could easily choose from COD or BF but many are choosing KZ and number's are out there.

KILLZONE is the game to play this holidays on next gen systems and you will miss a lot if you choose to hate instead of loving it and getting a PS4 with KILLZONE. You can't call yourself a true high end hardcore gamer.

Killzone is a great looking game there is no doubting that. but COD and BF are cross-platform games so after a few months KZ will fade away and everyone will jump on COD or BF like always
VENOMACR1227  +   849d ago
POS Fanboy much? Killzone is selling "amazing" because what other exclusive title is worth pre-ordering for PS4? Forza cant be compared to KZ because entirely different markets. FPS have a much larger market than simulation racing games. Driveclub is no where near the game Forza is, not even on the same playing field. And your detailed thoughts on Ryse are just your opinion. It's not my type of game but it looks excellent. Don't forget, COD and BF4 will be on all the systems so sale #'s for PS4 and X1 will probably be down because there are more PS3 and 360 owners then PS4 and X1 owners.

Sorry but buying KZ doesn't make you a high end hardcore gamer, especially for an arcade shooter. I only preordered Forza, Madden, and BF4. I don't think either system has amazing exclusives.
mxrider2199  +   849d ago
@venomar they dont have to buy a first party title they could just easily buy a 3rd party BF or COD and just have wanted the next gen console. The reason it is selling so well is because of how amazing the game looks

This time Killzone is launching with 10 maps! And it will have 6 dlc maps for free and a $20 dlc pack that will bring 6 or 8 more mp maps plus 8 4 player co op horde mode.
KILLZONE life spam will last a lot this time.

Is a cheap excuse to say " people are buy Killzone because there is no other exclusive" people in general don't care about exclusives, they have two other options in fps genre and two very popular, if Killzone sales and is been played has much has those other two on the ps4, is because it's indeed a good game, not because is a exclusive game.

Driveclub like it or not is been made by a solid developer and it will please racing fan! You act like if Forza is GT LOL forza is just another racer and so is Driveclub.

Thats right ryse looks nice! thats what I say, this devs do pretty visuals but poor gameplay, very poor campaign, And that something to worry since ryse is a type of game in where the gameplay and campaign has to be good and it's not.

Killzone is solid...

Knack and Resogun have potential...

DriveClub is probably weak... (Don't tell me you'd prefer DriveClub over a GT successor)...

DR3, Forza 5, and Killer Instinct are solid.

I actually DO want Driveclub over another GT, because Driveclub is not a racing sim, it's a balance between arcade and sim and seeing as how i'm not a fan of sims and am craving an arcade racer it appeals to me FAR more than GT ever will. GT is fucking fantastic, if you like full on sims, but i don't so Driveclub is for me
black0o  +   849d ago

Nabbic  +   849d ago
Anyone who says Killer Instinct is going to be good obviously isn't familiar with our friends at Double Helix.
Double Helix are notorious for making bad games, the majority of their games are mediocre and barely scratch above 50/100.

Ryse itself also looks poor. It had potential, but even IGN are bashing that. IGN get to bed with any AAA game and are bashing Ryse.

And as for Fable? Lionhead used to be one of my favorite studios, but I absolutely hate the direction they're taking it in.
Halo? You've all only seen ONE cinematic and know nothing about the game. It could be Halo Karting for all you know... That isn't a reason to buy into something straight away, especially with 343, who have done a terrible job following in Bungie's footsteps.

That's not to say it's all bad. I'll admit that Forza looks a bit more highly refined than Driveclub, however from what I understand it doesn't have any daytime weather effects.
Now, I don't often play racers. And if you excuse games like Wipeout, or silly ones like LBP Karting/Mario Kart, then I've not had a proper racing game since the PS1 era.
However, night and weather is something I'd expect basic from a racing game. I don't want to play the exact same sunny sky in every single track... Especially not if I relay a level, since it'll just be exactly the same, no variation at all. I want rain, winds, night... Something to spice it up and not be boring.

Now, the PS4 lineup isn't perfect either. I still have huge concerns that Knack will tank. But the games that matter (Killzone, Infamous) are being made by actual studios we know and trust.
I can't help but feel that Microsoft's first party is incredibly weak. They have Lionhead and the decayed ruins of Rare... That's it. They've got 343 and Crytek making games for them, but Bungie were stronger than both of them will ever be.
Meanwhile, Sony are boasting Naughty Dog (Uncharted, TLOU, Jak and Daxter), Media Molecule (Tearaway, Little Big Planet), Sucker Punch (Sly Cooper, Infamous), Guerilla (Killzone), Santa Monica (They find awesome indie devs and published Journey)... As well as Studio Japan's Team Ico working on The Last Guardian. Despite Insomniac going from second party to third, Sony still own the IP to ratchet, resistance...

When looking at consoles, look at th. IPs the company own and first party studios. Because when you compare the two, it's evident that Microsoft have a pathetic lineup.
ssj27  +   849d ago
KILLZONE is indeed the best exclusive game to get! Fallowed by Forza and Driveclub.

Let's not forget only 5% of gamers can play games like DS on ultra 1080p 60fps and maybe 30% can even play that game or any other f2p game with good visuals and fps.
And let's not forget that mos console gamers like myself can't play pc games. It's fair to add the fp2 games has PS4 exclusive games or to be more official "console'' exclusives. The PS4 has the best and more console exclusive and nt even "5%'' of xbone owners can play on PC, not even at low settings.
Lykon  +   849d ago
without doubt PS4 has the best potential for games and the best team behind it . I know this article and discussion is about launch games. But I'm really not worried about launch line ups. I know the PS4 will deliver long term. XB One has a good launch line up and some sparkly gimmicks (fitness kinect) and it also has a loyal fan base of xblive gamers . I don't think XB one fans or PS4 fans will be disappointed. I'm only getting a PS4 though

How do you know Driveclub isn't decent? Played it have you?

Why do you have to take away indie games? Is it because of you do your whole argument falls apart?

Let's look at the history shall we. From PS1 even to PS3 Sony have been banging out exclusives till the end.

Now look at MS abandoned the Xbox as soon as the 360 launched. And the only exclusives released in the past 3/4 years have been sequals.

Where as Sony have released sequals AND invested in new IP's like. TLOU, Puppeteer, Beyond and Rain.

How many MS exclusive that was a new IP have been released between Jan this year to now compared to Sony's 4?

I already know the answer and it's a pathetic 0.

You are probably regretting ordering your Xbox but YOU made that choice now stick to it and don't try making up BS to make yourself feel better.

First party??? The only major first party exclusive I can think of is forza. Ryse and dead rising are both third party
RiPPn  +   849d ago
Apparently he REALLY likes Forza. lol
Waller  +   849d ago
Killer Instinct, Forza 5, Ryse, Crimson Dragon, LocoCycle, and Powerstar Golf are published by Microsoft Studios. DriveClub, Killzone: Shadow Fall, Knack, and Resogun are published by Sony Computer Entertainment. That makes them all technically first party exclusives, while some are considered "second party".
Hicken  +   849d ago
Publishing a game doesn't make it first party. Otherwise titles like the first Mass Effect and Bioshock would never have seen the PS3.

First party means a developer you own created the game. These games are, without any exception I can think of, exclusives.

Third party is a game made by a studio you don't own. They can be exclusive or multiplatform, though most fall into the latter category.

It's second party if you fund the game, but it's made by an outside developer, like Bayonetta 2.

There is no "technically" anything about it.
GribbleGrunger  +   849d ago
Games that are made for one particular system but are from an independent studio are known as 2nd party games.

Forza: 1st party (MS studio)
Ryse: 2nd party (independent studio but X1 only)
ACBF: 3rd party (For all systems)

BioShock was published by 2K Games, not Microsoft, and Mass Effect was published by Electronic Arts on the PC and PS3.

So every game I previously listed is either a first-party exclusive or a second-party exclusive. I consider Killer Instinct first-party simply because Microsoft owns Rare and Rare owns Killer Instinct. Whether that counts or not, doesn't matter to me.
ABeastNamedTariq  +   849d ago
First party? Then would just be Forza, right?

And I disagree. But that's because it's my opinion. Ryse doesn't interest me, I can wait until next year to play Forza 5, and I'm on the fence about DR3.

Killzone is my must-have for launch, plus DC (PS+ Edition). I can wait for a price drop for Knack.

To me, launch titles don't matter that much. It's the heavy hitters next year (Halo, Titanfall, Infamous, The Order, etc.) that I'm excited for.
FlameHawk  +   850d ago
I feel sad for people that buy their console based on just the lineup, like there aren't going to be any other games coming out. I'm going with PS4 because I know Sony will deliver the exclusives unlike Microsoft which have already abandoned the Xbox 360 by moving the games from 360 to Xbox One. Its like people don't know that Sony has like 12 other First party studios that are making AAA games.
Majin-vegeta  +   849d ago
I guess we could let the xboxies have this round.Cuz come next years E3 Sony is gonna come out stomping the competition.
Infamous298  +   849d ago
That is what i have been saying to the xbots and still they disagree, after exclusive games run out, microsoft will make kinect game like what they did with the 360
AngelicIceDiamond  +   850d ago
Depends on what you like.

But ultimately, the launch line ups are usually forgettable anyway. They're literally just games to buy for your brand new purchased console.

But after launch and at E3 is where things gets interesting.
Godmars290  +   850d ago
Why is it that consoles are about a marathon not a sprint, and yet all signs point to this being a sprint?

One side has the fundamental infrastructure, the experience, and the other doesn't.

Actually the other got lazy in that regard. Tried to coast letting 3rd parties do the heavy lifting.

Why are Free to play and Indie games left out?
kewlrats  +   850d ago
They're not confirmed releases for launch. But, there are a couple Indies and F2P on the list.
memots  +   849d ago
Because some people downplay Indie and F2p as lesser games. Or to better fit their argument.
christocolus  +   850d ago
xbx launch exclusives look good and looking at next year we got fable, titanfall, halo5,kinect sports rivals, blacktusks ip,sunset overdrive and quantum is putting alot into their exclusives ..cos even with these mentioned titles almost all their 1st party devs have multiple games in development..343,blacktusk ,mgs osaka and rare alone have multiple teams working on multiple projects which havent been announced and thats not even including ms securing exclusive deals with some 2nd and third party devs. i.e epic, playground ,crytek(sequel to ryse)and the rumored ones like platinum games and other japanese devs etc.those expecting a drought after launch are in for a rude awakening this time is going all out.

I also want to point out Xbox fans some but most on this site said Exclusives don't matter. MS also said launching 360 that they are putting in major money for exclusive first party games.

solid_snake3656  +   849d ago
The console race isnt a 100m dash, its a long marathon. So far we haven't even heard what MS plans on releasing after launch. After launch within its first year PS4 is supposed to get the order 1886 (which looks sick BTW), infamous ss, deep down, daylight.
sak500  +   849d ago
OH shut up already. You buy a new gen console and wait 3 years like you did for ps3 to show some games?

If it would have been other way round you sony worshippers would be all over these types of articles claiming victory for launch games.

Jeez it's like 2006 all over again, you guys have the SDF handbook of excuses out and spouting them in every positive MS articles.

Guess what in the end consumers will go for a next gen console with games which are not penny arcade ones. And good thing is this garbage comments sections on this site doesn't really influence anyone except help sonydroids sleep at night that their choice this gen again will be of lesser successful console like current gen.

Imalwaysright  +   849d ago
Excuses? MS took games from the 360 to put them on the X1. PS3 had exclusives left right and center each year while MS had kinect games, DLC and Halo. These are not excuses, these are facts and no matter what you say nothing will change them. Consoles are a long term investment and if exclusives are your thing, the PS4 is your best bet.
ninjagoat  +   849d ago
As with this generation its down to the developers and who has the better flex end off the day. Sony proved stronger this gen last gen the gen before that and with the way MS goes about its business I'm sure it wont be any different this new gen either.

A few extra launch titles will keep a few happy for a while but down the line i like many others will ask the same question off my X1 where is the variety and wheres the new developers.

Microsoft are stuck in a cycle they don't seem to like to break and that's a shame really. Won't stop me buying the console i have a few games there in enjoy halo Forza etc. But there's already rumblings that are upsetting me and the thing isn't in my hands yet.

On the other hand my PS4 preorder hasn't got me worried at all. But this happened in the run up till the 360 as well and i had reason to be annoyed with it the amount off replacements i needed.

Took right up till the latest model till they got it right a stable console that didn't break. Either way games ways we should all be in for a good Christmas on what ever we play i see no sense in all this comparing bullshit.

I just hope my stuff works end off the day I've had enough issues in the past.
Paranoidplayer24  +   849d ago
As a long time fighting game player I can tell you first hand Killer Instinct looks anything but solid. The flaws are obvious even in gameplay videos. Number one is Glacius can zone and control the entire screen with his normals as well as doing brain dead 50-70% damage combos.

I mean have you seen how many times they are actually able to spam the same move and call it a combo. I'm gonna go ahead and say it now Glacius will be a game breaker. Even looking past that the combo system looks lame compared to something like injustice or mvc3. And even past that how much do you really trust Double Helix. In the end ill still get the game and give it a chance. It's not fair to judge to much before it's out but let me just say in glad I only have to burn 5 bucks getting Glacius.

All in all the launch race is close running to me on ps4 Killzone SF Driveclub and Knack really look like stand out games to me and for Xbox I know Dead Rising 3, and Forza will be awesome for sure.

However in the long run Killzone Shadow Fall, Infamous Second Son, The Order 1886, Deep Down, Daylight, and unannounced games from big publishers like Santa Monica and Naughty Dog PLUS a more powerful system speed and graphics wise have me looking forward to the ps4 more than the xbox1
fenixm  +   849d ago
Xbox has the better exclusives. Killer Instinct > all. Dead Rising 3 also help.
Bolts  +   849d ago
PS4 launch games are garbage. Knack? Are you kidding me? I have Killzone SF on preorder and it looks great but I have yet to see a live demo that isn't a complete snooze fest.

So why bother getting a PS4? Oddly enough their multiplats are excellent. The system may not have enough power to render BF4 in 1080p but there's enough there to out muscle the Xbox One, with 900p for the PS4 and 720p for the Xbox One. Seeing how the vast array of games are multiplats it's important to choose the system with best hardware for the job.
Lboogieskells  +   849d ago

If you plan on only owning one console for at least a couple years, then honestly I'm going to consider you an idiot if you purchase one console over the only primarily because of the launch lineup. Comparing the launch lineups can be mildly amusing as a point of discussion; but in the long term it will mean virtually nothing.
DiRtY  +   849d ago
If you want $2 sidescroller indie games, have fun with the PS4.

If you like AAA blockbuster, go and get a Xbox One.

you mean stiff spartan games or 360 hand me down zombie games?guess im goin with those side scrollers
akurtz  +   849d ago
Both consoles have their respective taste, i for one am excited for KZSF and Knack, and the slew of indie/f2p games kicking off on PS4.
For the X1, Ryse interest me the most, since i enjoyed spartan: total warrior on the PS2.
Ill be getting the PS4 and my cousin will get the X1, so ill get to try them both!
So excited for next gen :)

As if people decide to buy a console with regards to its launch line up :/

Some impulsive people may decide on that, the fact is most buy it for the long run...In this matter PS4 is the right choice because Sony proved for generations that it supports its consoles better then the rest.

No need for me to explain more, this is history and the facts are facts.
Gamer666  +   849d ago
Sony tends to start the generation slow and end it with strong games...

Microsoft tends to start a generation strong and end slow...

My opinion (If you can only afford one console, but intend to get both)... By the X1 at launch, buy the PS4 when the AAA new IPs start showing up...
