Next Gen Launch Title Poll Results

Karam Elahi from SpawnFirst writes: "As always, once SpawnPolls are taken down and the choices tallied, we put some time into studying the results that we get from these polls. Once we get into the nitty gritty details, there’s always some surprising revelations that the poll unveils that oft times goes against the expected trends of the gaming community in general."

Update:

All, please understand that the poll was started over a month ago. That's why Driveclub and Watchdogs are listed on there, and therefore had to be tabulated, regardless of their delays. Also, games that are not launch titles like Titanfall, Destiny, Mirrors Edge 2, etc were not considered because this is a LAUNCH title poll.

Killzone: Shadow Fall (360/1917 – 19%): UNEXPECTED

Sounds about right.. Considering previous killzone never really sale well.

Then again many people are forced to preorder it now that watch dogs cancelled giving it a boost.

-Foxtrot981d ago

Kind of wonder if GG are glad about the WatchDogs delay, means more chance of getting better sales.

Same goes for Knack to be honest

FamilyGuy981d ago (Edited 981d ago )

Killzone and Watch_Dogs were neck-and-neck BEFORE people knew about the delay, Killzone will be the lead contender for next gen buyers now.

It really sucks Watch_Dogs had to be delayed, the anticipation for it was huge to say the least. I wonder where people will migrate now that it basically won't be out till, and that goes for DriveClub as well. I wonder which games will get a boost from these unfortunate delays.

Also, the article has a good point about Forza. We're seeing marketing for Ryse with its recent trailers and game images but MS haven't gone into overdrive on Forza yet. It's a little unusual.

so, Killzone shadowfall not only beat all xbonx1 exclusives combined in pre-orders ...it also beat them all combined in polls as well ?!

EXPECTED ;)

OpieWinston981d ago

No one's buying Knack...

Killzone: Shadow Fall is going to get some nice traction and hopefully Guerilla fixes the game at launch. (Because we've all seen the flaws from demos)

Muerte2494981d ago (Edited 981d ago )

Killzone 2 did around 3 million.

Killzone 3 put up 2.5 respectively.

Granted their not COD numbers it's still impressive none the less. If you read the article, it states that they asked gamers to chose their top 3 most anticipated game. Both Watch Dogs and Killzone garnished 19% each out of nearly 2,000 people polled. The reason why Killzone numbers are so impressive is because the director of Killzone2's multiplayer (absent from KZ3) is returning for Shadowfall. Killzone2 community is very excited by this and are returning home to roost.

CRAIG667981d ago

I still aint bought KZ3, I do want to play it but will admit I found KZ2 rather dull/generic.

JetP0619981d ago

Lalanana doesnt know what he's saying. killzone 2 and 3 really did good, the fact that it's not cod and exclusive meaning not available to both consoles and still doing that well is something. Also he seems to be forgetting killzone shadowfall is dominating the pre-order numbers for software

Muffins1223981d ago (Edited 981d ago )

halo 3 got around 12 million...its not impressive compared to what killzone is competing against.

ABeastNamedTariq981d ago

D-D-D-D-Downplay!

Also, WD isn't cancelled. It was delayed. Fact check next time.

wicked981d ago

As it's about launch titles, it was cancelled from that list of games.

awesomeperson981d ago

To be honest, I thought it would be an expected result.

It's the largest, most heavily pushed exclusive for the console which is currently much more popular. Not to mention it's a showpiece for what the system is capable of.

It's a no brainer that people would be excited for it.

ZHZ90981d ago (Edited 981d ago )

I wonder the guy who made the poll, why he didn't put Knack in that list since it's launch title?

It's great my most anticipated laucnh titles(WD, KZ:SF and ACIV:BF) are doding great and maybe I'll purchase BF4.
It's great that KZ:SF has beaten X1 excluives combined, now no one can't deny that KZ:SF is a great title.

karamsoul981d ago

It is on that list under "other" games.

I think a lot of xbox players have jumped ship.

NeoTribe981d ago

A lot have. I was one of the few of my friends who wasn't an xbot. All but one switched to ps4. All online polls have favored ps4 drastically over x1. This will be a better gen for gaming witb sony as the lead console. Microsoft needs another 8 years to learn how to treat there customers.

Futilescape981d ago

So the game that has arguably had the most attention levied at it; "Titanfall" is nowhere to be found in this article or it's statistics. Not really worth reading

cactusjack981d ago

its in the other catagory.

Futilescape981d ago (Edited 981d ago )

I guess, but even there it wasn't mentioned. At least not where I can immediately tell. Games like Battlefront, Mirror Edge 2 aren't even whispered in the other category as well. They are all EA games too now that I think about it... that's a scary thought...

Lunarassassin981d ago

Why would Titanfall be in there? It isn't a launch game.

Futilescape981d ago (Edited 981d ago )

Neither is Watch Dogs or Driveclub. Again, it's a sloppy article and poll

WarThunder981d ago

The article is about "Launch Title Poll Results"

Titanfall is not a Launch Title.

karamsoul981d ago

Titanfall is not a launch title. It releases in 2014

killzone destroys the xbone exclusives.

CRAIG667981d ago

It's all about Forza5 and Killer Instinct for me at launch.
