Microsoft strikes back at Sony with their ad stating "Xbox One has the best games"

As the launch of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One draws near, the marketing is getting aggressive on both sides. Microsoft recently tweeted a new picture stating "Xbox One has the best games". (Microsoft, Xbox One)

Depends on what you like really but I have to admit the launch does have a good verity.

For me though, in the long term, I think Sony have the better haul. Especially with the first-party devs like Naughty Dog working on titles.
Neonridr  +   341d ago | Well said
Not to mention a lot of the big exclusive XB1 titles show up on PC. So I can still get my fix of a few of them there (Titanfall for example).
Wizziokid  +   341d ago
Exactly that's where I'm happy to own a gaming PC because it means I don't really need an X1 apart from the games which they keep on console but for the most part It should be ok.
CerebralAssassin  +   341d ago
What other games will be on both pc and xb1? Not trolling. Just cant think of any.
xHeavYx  +   341d ago | Well said
MS may have the best games according to some people (it's an opinion after all) but let's wait until tonight's announcement before we discuss who has the best games.
I'm not worried though, Sony has always provided in the gaming department, while the competition buys exclusives and DLC
Pogmathoin  +   341d ago
That is Sonys strong point. But right now to talk about the long haul, that is pointless... who knows what will be done down the road. MS has invested heavily in new studios, and if they sell well, and they will, others will want a piece of that pie too. But that will not be enough for some... who will instinctively shout rubbish as a kneejerk reaction.
Neonridr  +   341d ago
@Cerebral - my other favorite MS IP Alan Wake showed up on PC (even though I played it on the 360), so an inevitable Alan Wake 2 may still appear on PC, who knows.

Titanfall is the only XB1 game I am really looking forward to though. Never been a huge fan of Forza (or racing games for that matter)..
cleft5  +   341d ago
The best game claim is just an opinion thing. Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct, and Forza 5 look like great games and Ryse looks pretty. The problem with their claim is that for a person like me, who disliked Dead rising 1 and 2, isn't a fan of racing games, and while KI was fun when I was a kid the new KI doesn't do much for me.

So for me the Xbox One doesn't have anything that would interest me right now. That's why I am buying a ps4. The ps4 has a lot of F2P games that I want to play and know are good, it has indie titles that I want to try, I am interested in Knack, and I think Killzone is a fun series. For me PS4 is easily the best choice but even that is just my opinion.

What isn't opinion is the fact that the ps4 is more powerful than the Xbox One. You really wouldn't expect that difference to show at the launch of these consoles, but the fact that it does is very telling. Going forward developers will learn how to make games for the Xbox One better, but they will also be learning how to make games for the PS4 better. So this gap we are seeing isn't going to go away. Microsoft can make opinion based appeals all they want, but it is the hard facts that matter.
Neonridr  +   341d ago
@cleft - your statement was valid and even levelheaded until you started up that last paragraph. Jesus, give it a rest.

Nobody denies that the system is more powerful than the XB1. But the 3DS takes a statement like that and spits in the face of the Vita everyday. It's the games that matter, and if the XB1 ends up with the better games then it will sell better. Likewise with the PS4.

Power helps, but it's hardly the deciding factor.

Death  +   341d ago
Both consoles will get better with time. The Xbox One being harder to develop for has more room for improvement. The gap will shrink as developers learn more techniques and the tool sets improve. With 1080p and 60fps being the goal, Sony is already closer to that realization. Microsoft has a little further to go.
VENOMACR1227  +   341d ago
The best games is strictly opinion based. For me, I prefer multiplayer games and a lot of my friends have Xbox's, so I'm getting an X1. Uncharted, Last of Us, excellent top tier games, but I'm not huge on mostly single player driven games. Yes they have an online feature, but it's not like gears, halo, killzone, cod, BF, etc. Cross platform games, I prefer playing them through Xbox Live.

There's no doubt that Sony has excellent first party games, but we've yet to see the potential of Titanfall and Halo is down the road, hopefully a new Gears of War also.

Of course both companies will claim the best games. What else are they supposed to say? It's called marketing. Car companies take shots at each other also so what's the big deal? Both systems will have excellent games.

Under hardly any circumstances is the PS4 vs X1, the same thing as 3DS and Vita. However if you do want to compare, the key elements on why the Nintendo handheld sells more is because it's cheaper and has more exclusives. And PS4 has both of those things in the bag.

I admit, the PS4's launch line up is kinda lackluster since Drive Club got delayed and the Xbox One's shows more variety...but knowing Sony, I always expect them to bring their best in the generation later on and the PS3 proved this.

I think Sony's plan changed up and moved their early best games till 2014 with Drive Club, Infamous, and 1886...also PlanetSide 2 comes out next year for the PS4.

It's too early to declare a "winner" and I see good times and bad times with both Sony and Microsoft. It's going to be the one consistent with exclusives that will stand out more. Competition is always good, that's why both sides turned around and are trying their best though Microsoft has to do a lot more to make me change my mind about them.

the funny part is that microsoft clearly bought up a few exclusives just for launch. wait and see years down the road how lacking they become in exclusive titles like they did with the 360 in the past few years. oh wait kinect titles count!...NO they dont
Boody-Bandit  +   341d ago
MS rushing exclusives out the door does not = better games at launch? Yeah that's not delusional.

Their 4 top launch titles are Ryse, DR3, Killer Instinct and Forza 5 (prologue it was it should be called). ALL of them are being rushed.

KI developer interviews say it all. They are still working around the clock just to have (hopefully) 8 character ready for launch. 8 characters. Let that sink in. Less than the original 20 years ago and less modes to boot.

Ryse has changed direction 3 time and hardware once. This is a game that went from GOW competition to a Kinect game on rails to an X1 game that is has been worked on around the clock to make it more of a combat game vs one or 2 button presses than right to QTE game they showed at E3. It is not running at a stable 30fps.

DR3 not my type of game but okay graphics and not running at stable frame rates. Quite the opposite from reports. Some claim it runs pretty rough in some areas. Dead Rising 3 I'm not going to claim is rushed. Maybe it is what it is and they just need more experience with X1 hardware. But could they have pulled off a better performing game if they had more time?

Forza 5 (my favorite game on MS hardware and one of my favorite racing games made) 1/2 the tracks and 2/5ths the cars of Forza 4. Half the content of Forza 4. Again, let that sink in. No triple panel support, no backward compatibility with FFB wheels and the official wheel being made by Thrustmaster doesn't have a clutch and stand alone shifter ready for launch. This game is screaming WE NEED MORE TIME! I'm not alone on this. Yeah there are some die hard fans that want it regardless but there are just as many that are fed up with Turn 10. Funny how they have DLC cars ready for launch that will cost additional money. With a game that cut 300 cars and went from 25 tracks to 14 from Forza 4 to 5? This game should be $39.99 and I'm being kind. Either that or Turn 10 should give out all the DLC for free.

MS, I'm sorry, I'm being rude.
You were saying?

I mean seriously. MS of all companies, a company that all but turned their back on their core base to chase after Nintendo's base with Kinect, is going to talk about having the best games? Yeah MS you did a fantastic job the first few years with the 360 and games but then it nearly turn into the Sahara Desert. You talk the talk but you're not walking the walk when you're rushing games out the door.

Edit: Disagree but can you counter most of my points? What's that? You can't? Figured as much.

Death  +   340d ago
@Brutally,

Because you asked,

Microsoft has been in this gen longer and they are using more "dated" tech. Logic would dictate they have been developing the Xbox One longer, not rushed.

Killzone: http://www.metacritic.com/g...

Knack: http://www.metacritic.com/g...

I don't see any indication either of these is rushed, but neither is more than average so far. Maybe that will improve as more reviews come out, maybe not. If I had to pick, I'd rather have a better game that was "rushed" then a game that had all the time in the world but was simply ok. We will see how the reviews go next week when the Xbox releases, maybe they will be average there too. Either way, what is the point of calling Microsoft games rushed if the Sony games are uninspiring?

As for the list of killer Sony exclusives that have come out the last few years, what do we have? Uncharted. The Last of Us. Gran Turismo. Killzone. DCUO maybe? I'm sure there are more, but these are the core games that appeal to a broad range of gamers. It's not like Sony cranks out a great triple A game every couple months.
Anarki  +   340d ago

Mister_Dawg  +   340d ago
Some XB1 games will appear on PC.
But being a PC gamer, I know fine well the majority of console games do not come to PC.
So the argument I'll just get a PS4 because I'll get the XB1 games on PC, doesn't hold much water.
andrewsqual  +   340d ago
And whatever Remedy are making too will be on PC.
DarkLordMalik  +   341d ago
Agreed. I think Microsoft is starting with a bang but lets see how long they keep bringing us these exclusives. They did the same with Xbox 360, launched it with exclusives and then abandoned it after a few years while Sony kept giving us exclusives. I mean the best exclusive by far on PS3 was "The Last of Us" and it was released this year. Not to mention games like Beyond, Puppeteer, Rain and GT 6 show that Sony never abandons their consoles.
Captain Qwark 9  +   341d ago
not really sure why you have disagree's. what you stated here is a fact lol

ms started with gears, halo, forza, lost oddesy, banjo, blue dragon, enchanted arms, crackdown, chrome hounds, alan wake, too human, fable, halo wars, kameo, ninja gaiden 2, PDZ, viva pinata, etc....

most of those were 2005-2010. then they just stopped with new ones, brought us the same 4 ( halo, gears, fable, forza ) over and over again with a handful of kinect games nobody cares about and the occasional arcade game.
nukeitall  +   341d ago
Sony on PS4 like last generation on PS3 started slow, so take your pick.

Do you want games now, or games later.

Personally, I take launch games now on Xbox One. After all, after a while 3rd party games are a plenty so I have consistent new games the entire time instead of being back loaded.

It is early on, that the new consoles need games, when there are few.
Baka-akaB  +   341d ago
everyone got games now . it's just a matter of how , and how many of a prefered type . But let's not act as if someone is going to deprive themselves from the multiplatform titles just because .

@nuke

idk about that, they have killzone know, infamous coming soon, w/e they announce tonight, driveclub in the spring, DCU online for ps4 if thats your thing, updated injustice, AC4, BF4 and COD too. there is plenty to play for now, plus the current gen is still going strong.

its also really obvious sony is doing what the other two failed to do, they are listening to the gaming community and hardcore fans and continuously delivering on what the people seem to be asking for. im a supporter of all systems and even up until this week was backing the X1 as my primary but it looks like sony is set to dominate this next gen., its hard to deny that at this point. if i didnt know any better, id say they actually have people researching on gaming websites and social media to see what the people want. i have a feeling games, games, and more games is their top priority and with that in mind, i dont think they will have a dry spell nearly as long as ps3 did.

Qwark you are speaking to deaf ears.

He just wants to justify why exclusives only matter in the beginning and why we don't need them at the end.

He claims it's because 3 party games are plenty at the end of the life cycle, but the funny thing is there are plenty of 3 party titles coming to the XB1/PS4 within the first year alone too, BUT that STILL won't make him admit that there should be a steady stream exclusive games for a console throughout it's life cycle though. Why you ask? Because that would mean admitting the MS has under-delivered in that department in the later of half of the 360 which is something he doesn't want to acknowledge.

@Captain Qwark 9:

Most of the games you mentioned aren't for me. Of Sony franchises I enjoyed are Uncharted and Last of Us i.e. Naughty Dog games. Third party games, I'm only interested in CoD. BF4 campaign looks interesting, but I burned myself really bad on BF3 campaign.

"if i didnt know any better, id say they actually have people researching on gaming websites and social media to see what the people want. i have a feeling games, games, and more games is their top priority and with that in mind, i dont think they will have a dry spell nearly as long as ps3 did."

I think what Sony really did was hire a great marketing company and fix the shortcomings of PS3.

From a next generation standpoint, the PS4 really doesn't push the bar. In many ways, the Wii was really the next generation console of it's time despite it's lacking in specification department.

This time around it is just more of the same.

@Outside_ofthe_Box:

"BUT that STILL won't make him admit that there should be a steady stream exclusive games for a console throughout it's life cycle though. Why you ask? Because that would mean admitting the MS has under-delivered in that department in the later of half of the 360 which is something he doesn't want to acknowledge."

It is pointless to discuss this, as if there are plenty of exclusives and none I want to play it wouldn't matter.

Point being, I don't care if they are exclusives or not. I only care if I have games I'm want to play and willing to buy.

MS strategy seems to work for me, and Sony's strategy means I'm waiting, and passing the PS4 pre-order to a family member instead until something tickles my fancy.
Kryptix  +   341d ago
@nukeitall

The thing about the games now or games later logic is that at the end of a console cycle...the hardware gets used to it's max potential. So if you get games now but not later, you'll rarely see what the console can truly create later on. The only games that showed the Xbox 360's true power was Halo 4, Forza 4, and Gears 3 & Judgement but the PS3 had Uncharted 3, God of War: Ascension, Beyond 2 Souls, The Last of Us, and more. (All after 2010)

PS4 might start out slow like the PS3, but Sony starts picking the pace, and Naughty Dog/Santa Monica still needs to present their games, both are top tier.

Pick what you like, but I'm going for the one that keeps promises when it comes to gaming...getting a PS4.

Ok then. Why not just say that then. Why try to act and pretend as if having more games in the beginning as opposed to the middle or end of the life cycle is any better when in actuality it all the depends if the games appeal to you or not.

You say Sony strategy means you're waiting, but how? You just said it all depends if the games appeal to you are not. If lets say Sony had stacked the PS4's launch line up with KZ, Knack, Infamous, Drive Club, Deep Down, and The Order 1886 all being available at launch it wouldn't have made a difference to you since none of the games appeal to you right? So it has little to do with their "strategy" and it's not that "new consoles need games early on, when there are few" it's just that none of the games revealed so far appeal to you while on the other hand, the XB1 has plenty of revealed titles that do in fact appeal to you.

ms has more launch first party games and thats an advantage...but the quality of these games remain to be seen. just as sony has had some bad reviews id expect ms to have then...but simply because launch games always get bad reviews. down the road hell even as soon as 2014 sony has a better future as far as upcoming games are concerned. alot of top quality devs have yet to even announce their games as well. we know ms has halo5 and titan and im sure they will be great but both being fps takes away some depth.
we know sony will have better multiplats also...to have more launch games is a win for ms not for gamers. gamers play for the generation and considering how ms treated the xbox original and xbox 360 in their last years id expect them to do the same to the x1. time will tell though i got my money on sony in the long run.

Other than Forza, I don't expect any of Microsoft's launch exclusives to be that well received either. Ryse could very get the same scores as Knack, Dead Rising 3 will likely sit around the high 70's, I don't even know who reviewers will approach Killer Instinct.

I do hope Spark lives up to its promise though.
Lukas_Japonicus  +   341d ago
I actually think RYSE will be rated very well....mainly from its visuals and story. Forza is Forza so that's going to get good scores. DR3 will get mixed, average around a 7 in my opinion.

But MS shouldn't be so quick to gloat (or maybe they should seeing as they haven't been doing well with exclusives since 2010). 2014 is going to be a very good year for PS4 and tonight we will get some juicy reveals hopefully.

It just doesn't make sense to me to gloat you have the best games when your main competitor is KNOWN for its dedication and focus for pumping out quality exclusive titles.

@Baka-akaB I get what you're saying, but to be fair Call of Duty: Ghosts is sitting at a 74 on metacritic. I'm sure some would like to see it closer to 30, but recently reviewers seem to be cracking down on scores.

For instance, I think the biggest reason Killzone: Shadow Fall has gotten such mixed reviews is because its the showpiece game for the PS4 and it doesn't do anything "next gen." I've played the other three Killzone games, and the story has always been hammy with interesting themes that have ultimately been underdeveloped. Still, KZ2 has a 91 rating on metacritic and KZ3 is sitting at 84. Unless the multiplayer is really lacking, I'm confident that KZ:SF will be the best entry in the series.

My guess for Xbox One review scores:

Crimson Dragon - 68
Dead Rising 3 - 79
Forza 5 - 87
Killer Instinct - 77
LocoCycle - 72
Ryse - 71
Project Spark - 83

Wow! A thoughtful post! Xbox will have the better games until at least spring. By next Xmas we shall see. I still think Xbox is gunna be the best place for online gaming while Sony destroys them on the single player front
Eddie20101  +   341d ago
Who the hell know's that. There's no reviews for exclusive games and there third party games are going to be at most the same or less than the PS4 games. From previews of the launch games for Xbox One there is nothing to get excited about.

Microsoft may be the only one's saying that after launch.

There's a whole generation ahead of us no one can say whose got the best games yet.

The problem with Microsoft has always been great exclusives in the first year, followed by a barren wasteland of crap.

"Xbox One has the best games."

The worst way to support this claim is to show a picture of Ryse, surely?
scott182  +   341d ago
Honestly, I can see x1's launch games being better overall. That's not the only reason to buy a console, because there is no doubt in my mind that Sony's first party devs can put out the top games in the future. It just appears to me that the x1 has the top quality launch titles, however the reviews will show us if they really are. I'm not trying to take anything away from Killzone sf though, it still looks fantastic to me.
KyoSiegfried86  +   341d ago
As a multiplatform player, there's a thing I really like. If you sum the two line-up you have a very strong variety of real next-gen titles (not including cross gen of course). Xbox one has a fighter, an action, an horror, a racing, which PS4 doesn't have (Driveclub is delayed, so it doesn't count in the launch line up), while PS4 has a platform and a next gen shooter which Xbox one doesn't have.
The only problem I have is that I love RPGs (both western and japanese) lol.
assdan  +   341d ago
Most places are saying you could beat ryse within 10 hours, and it's a single player based game. Based on what I'm hearing, ryse should have a lower rating than Killzone.

Knack 49 on metacritic, killzone 3 74. Sony does not have the better exclusives. Forza 5, Ryse, Dead Rising 3, nd Killer Instict all look much better.
xPhearR3dx  +   341d ago
They should rephrase that to "Xbox One has the best launch games". That would be accurate. Forza has stood it's ground and always had a 90+ Meta, so it's a killer app for sure. Ryse is going to be iffy. Dead Rising 3 is going to be a shit ton of fun despite some of the frame rate issues. And if you're into fighting games, you'll have Killer Instinct to play.

However, MS has proven past gen to start with great exclusives and pump them out, then quickly fall off and have nothing to show. So I don't mind waiting a little bit longer for killer apps to hit the PS4, at least I know in the long run I'll be taken care of.

My thoughts exactly. ND's next game announcement will be soon. Infamous SS, Driveclub and The order 1886 are all coming next year too.

Has Sony stated that those games will release in 2014?

Last generation Sony promised plenty of games like Agent and Guardian, that never saw the light of day.

Next year, MS has Titanfalls, and no set date, but they teased Quantum Break and Sunset Overdrive among many others.

I think MS consistently make sure there is new content coming, either from first party, second party or third party. Whereas Sony back loads all their games, meaning poor showing at launch, then bulk of games releases towards end of console cycle when there are far too many games released from third party anyhow.
Lukas_Japonicus  +   341d ago
@ Nuketail

Yeah, Infamous SS, Driveclub and The Order 1886 are out next year.

This year alone i bet PS3 has had more 1st party exclusives than the 360 has since it shifted its focus onto kinect in 2010.

JeffGUNZ  +   341d ago
I'm just confused. Really, launch games are all we have to play, so why would it matter if they changed the name? Also, MS did not invest over a billion dollars into their studios for fun, they did it to pump out 1st party exclusives. I think we won't know who has the best games for several years. Let the consoles release and make it through the year, then we can start examining them closer.
I_am_Batman  +   341d ago
For me PS4 has the much better launch lineup. Killer Instinct is the only launch game I want on X1. Forza is probably a really good game but I'm not a racing gamer. DR3 looks completely dumb to me (no disrespect to DR fans). Ryse is visually stunning but they didn't show enough single player to convince me (I wouldn't play the multiplayer for long). The Kinect games look horrible to me.

I'm more interessted in Quantum Break, Project Spark, Below and Sunset Overdrive but they aren't launch games.
Back-to-Back  +   340d ago
Forza 5 is basically forza 4 with half the content. Seriously wtf is up with the number of cars and tracks. I bet they cut content to sell as dlc.
Kayant  +   341d ago
Nope. I don't agree with that PS4 games are more appealing to me.

Only XB1 launch games I would play is DR3 & Ryse. Not saying to rest aren't good but they aren't my cup of tea.
That also includes their launch window lineup.

All the good games are on both systems anyway. Knack sucks based on the demo. Killzone has never been a good game to me. Doesnt leave much to play exclusive to ps4 at launch. Infamous being released next year really sucks.
Kayant  +   341d ago
If I was getting a PS4 launch I would also be playing F2P games like warframe/warthunder also which I would like to play more than some XB1's exclusives.

MRMagoo123  +   341d ago
mid 70s is a good game , mid 50s is an average game maybe a great game if you love the genre, so i dont get your point, what will you think of Ryse and DR3 when it gets the same kind of scores ?
P_Bomb  +   341d ago
@Jeff
Well, it depends. Dead Rising has never lit the world on fire, and never passed the sales or scores of KZ2 (91%).

From metacritic:
DeadRising 360 = 85%
DeadRising Wii = 61%
DeadRising 2 Case Zero = 79%
DeadRising 2 Case West = 74%
DeadRising 2 = 79%
DeadRising Off the Record = 72%

The hype on DeadRising3 has been a bit generous imo. Especially in a post Walking Dead/TLOU/DeadIsland/State of Decay world.

NegativeCreep427  +   341d ago
Other than Forza, if possibly all the other launch games get average to above-average scores or even less than nines you just know the xbox fanboys are already rehearsing for the "they were paid off by Sony" campaign.

Edit @ Nujabes_

You're right. And the funny thing is is that all the Xbot fanboys that are now claiming that all those PS4 game reviews are COMPLETELY LEGIT and all those reviewers that gave low scores were NOT PAID OFF and have not been swayed in any way will be calling such a foul when or if the Xbox One launch titles get the same treatment.

This is exactly what's going on in this site right now. People are crying "paid reviews!" because:

JeffGUNZ  +   341d ago
Who is saying they are NOW legit? They always have been. It's Sony fanboys who always cry that "M$ paid them" or "M$ probably sent the whole staff 360's!". Perhaps it's just that Knack sucks and KZ is still underwhelming and a medicore shooter dressed in a fancy suit. I don't take reviews to heart like most people here, but come on man, stop trying to spin it. Sony fans are known clearly on this site for making those types of accusations. This site is heavily Sony based anyway.

JeffGUNZ  +   341d ago
Give it a rest man. Can Sony diehards EVER give MS some credit? Right now we have two consoles about to launch. MS has a much better launch lineup. Instead of saying "kudos MS, here's to Sony hopefully announcing some great games this year!" we get "...for now, MS this and Ms that...blah blah blah". Stop bringing up last year. It's evident that MS was heavily funding(over a billion dollars) their studios to make launch games. So many more unannounced exclusives still and sony fans still spewing out hate. Enough.
frostypants  +   341d ago
"Much better"? Try marginally...and even then we're only speculating.
Hicken  +   340d ago
Give MS credit for what? So far, we've mostly seen them spend that money on the same thing they always spend money on: timed exclusives and content. How much of that billion was spent on the deals with Activision and EA, and in making Titanfall exclusive?

Why not bring up last year? It's definitely relevant. Most people buy games throughout the life of a console. Sony has proven to continue providing those games; Microsoft, not so much. So when we're talking about the NEW consoles, what the two companies did with the OLD ones is a valid point.

How much did Sony invest in their studios and in exclusives? For all we know, it could be 2 billion. Really, that number is just something for MS fanboys like you to grab on to, but it doesn't mean anything until it's generated some substance in the form of actual games.

But even in the event of unnanounced games, Sony wins that category. Do we have to go over the list of PROVEN first party studios working on the PS4? How they've all got multiple teams making games.

MS has nothing that appeals to me until Titanfall, a game that was gonna be multiplat before MS took some of that billion and threw it at EA.

So you're basically trying to pass off opinion as fact, and trying to downplay Microsoft's very real history of abandonment and lack of foresight.

Which is typical and expected of an MS fanboy, but no less disappointing or annoying.

I don't mind if you defend Microsoft, but at least do so with good arguments. Not this drivel.
HardcoreDaBoss  +   341d ago
best games? the xbox one hasn't had any reviews so far so we dont know if its any better. The gamers need to play and get there own ideal if the games are good..some reviews do have me worried though.. I am a huge killzone fan, I love the multiplayer.. but the reviews are mixed and some are terrible.. Im thinking these are rushed reviews and are single player only reviews for it..

And how can M$ brag? All I see is people hating on them every chance they get and mistake they make. But If when Its sony people come to defend them no matter what. I think Its really unfair to do this.. we are gamers guys... we play games and should want everyone to be good. The better all 3 next gen consoles get that means more competition and that means better everything for each console and better stuff we as gamers get.

Picnic  +   340d ago
After Kameo launched, Microsoft haven't gone for releasing straight forward style platform games. (Everything they'd released previously in the platform genre, most on the original Xbox, hadn't sold massively well). Even Banjo Kazooie got turned in to a more sandbox-like looking vehicle creation game.

But that doesn't mean that Microsoft doesn't do cute stuff- Kinect stuff will be (Kinect Sports is nice) and, if you're looking for something 'platformy', you need to wait for Sunset Overdrive which looks like Jet Set Radio meets a zombie game.

I guess we will see once the embargo is lifted on bone titles. I predict Ryse will be getting the Knack treatment. Dead Rising is going to get hammered for frame rate. Forza being an "incremental" update offering less cars and tracks than any other version of Forza won't go over well. And the limited number of fighters in KI is surely going to hit the review score.

Apparently so. I have noticed Xbox fans have very, very short term memories.

Duh? The topic of discussion is next-gen gaming and releases, why should we be talking about the PS3 and Xbox 360?

The fact that the 360 has less exclusives than the PS3 in 2013 is in no way indicative of the state of the Xbox One in the future.

Microsoft is already investing a billion dollars in exclusive games, I seriously, seriously doubt they Xbox gamers will have no games to play.

PS: Xbox 360 is still "pumping exclusives" Fable Anniversary is releasing in 2014.

Most every game so far is "good" although Knack is least consistent review wise by far (average seems most fair for many and being somewhat optimistic although still think it can be fun). We just haven't really seen that truely great game yet.

I've seen enough though to know I should be happy for a while and fans of both consoles have something that should sit pretty well with them.

I'm curious about how One's reviews turn out but not deciding factor on if I enjoy them or not.
DarthJay  +   341d ago
Why does this have to be a strike back at Sony? It looks like it's an ad doing the things an ad is supposed to do. Reaching here.
iRocket  +   341d ago
From the perspective of a PC player I have to admit that Xbox One does have more interesting launch line up (IMO), because all the other games (BF4, AC4 etc.) I can get on my PC, so they're neither a plus for the PS4 or Xbone launch games. Xbone has Ryse, Forza, Killer Instinct and Dead Rising 3.

But if you don't own powerful enough PC then you can enjoy those games on your PS4/Xbone. And in the end Sony will probably bring out their exclusives that have always been top notch, and because PS4 is focused on gamers, it will eventually win in that department.
pheature  +   341d ago
I agree totally.
But can i just ask you a question and get your opinion .
Do you not think it is a bad move from MS TO NOT release a shooter which is exclusive to the console on release date, like ps4 has killzone. i know battlefeild and cod are there but they arent exclusive.
do you think maybe if ms produced a real good shooter similar to killzone that the product could of done better than what it is doing
iRocket  +   341d ago
Sure. I think MS should had have an exclusive shooter on their launch line up. Just imagine if Titanfall had been there on launch, with the PC & Xbox 360 versions to follow on March. That would probably had been a major victory for MS. The industry is looking for an innovative FPS right now and Titanfall looks to scratch that icht. Sure it isn't totally new and people say "CoD with mechs and parkour," but it is something new.
JeffGUNZ  +   341d ago
No, COD is most popular on the xbox platform, that, along with BF4 will hold everyone over until Titanfall. It's a smart move. Halo will come and that will solidify everything FPS like, even though Halo has never really been my cup of tea.
The_Ozymandias  +   341d ago

pheature  +   341d ago

Eldyraen  +   341d ago
Honestly I'm expecting Xbox one games to be pretty comparable review wise although Forza is most likely to be highest scored exclusive so far (best track record). Ryse I think will be quite mixed although like Killzone/Knack still have loyalists that purchase and will enjoy them (myself included). DR3 simply doesn't have a great pedigree review wise and expecting 7.5 more or less from reviews I would trust yet falls in same category fanbase wise. All of which I actually think could be fun.

AC4 and BF4 so far are best reviewed games coming next gen (Lego marvel game isn't far off though) and truth is they look good but also a little disappointing (third party trumping first so far). Granted reviews aren't going to sway me from picking up something I expect I will enjoy so both systems look great to me no matter which comes out on top.

Later on in the cycle which is try test I am leaning towards PS4 although MS may have learned from their mistakes in softening support last couple years. I love both consoles and exclusives both end up getting so wish them both the best.

If MS does bring more games to PC though all power to them. I don't mind picking up more PC games and they get a cut no matter which platform as long as either first party or they at least publish them. I still hope though MS really pushes cross platform support though as one day I want more games like Project Spark is supposed to be and works for PC, One and even 360.

At this point, at least as far as launch titles go, XB1 has the better games. Sure, that's a subjective thing and I totally accept that while I'm looking forward to Dead Rising 3, someone else might not be interested in it at all.

Sony will definitely bring the big guns at some point in the future. Anyone who doubts that is an idiot, plain and simple. But hazy claims about what Naughty Dog will bring to the PS4 for example, especially when no one knows exactly what it is they're bringing in the first place, kind of pale in comparison to the confirmed appearance of Titanfall, Quantum Break, Halo 5 just to name a few. It all comes down to speculation versus fact.

Cut off cable since I wasn't watching too much of it or anything else for that matter. On the plus side, I've saved a bit of cash but on the down side, there's always a show that comes up where I have to scramble and find a way or a place to watch it. I think I'm gonna sign back up though.
