The next-gen's potential isn't defined by the launch games

MMGN: "The launch lineup for both the PS4 and Xbox One is easily the best we’ve ever had (both first and third-party) for at least three generations. We've still got a little bit to go before first and third-party developers realise the full potential and technical power behind both machines, and missing out or being overly critical on either console from misjudgment of their launch titles would be a mistake."

The story is too old to be commented.

launch games do not define a console's legacy.

Indeed, although they can be an important part of it. In a few years however, people will associate the likes of Infamous and Drive Club with the launch titles considering how soon they will be releasing.

I don't know. Some of them had little effect on how well a console did.

I've been to this circus many many times. the opening acts are exactly that. they are the warm up for the main attractions.

games like super mario world, altered beast, battle arena toshinden...etc are all great games in their own right but we all knew that better ones would come along.

Launch games are meant to give people something to play while patiently waiting for the heavy hitters to make their entrance. This is only the beginning.

Since people recognize what these consoles are fully about, they're buying it because they know what's in store when it comes to the games.

I wouldn't even say hardcore PlayStation or Xbox fans are buying the consoles solely for the post launch.

Any gamer buying the console are looking for that Uncharted or God Of War or Gears and Halo.

Plus new Ip's from both Sony and MS. And that's the secret sauce here. Gamers are full aware of new Ip's and new franchise that are being made and brand new experiences, from the None hardcore crowd. The crowd that's between hardcore and core

Imo that's who's buying the PS4 now and X1 next week. The gamer has grown and more aware then previous gens.

It doesn't get through fanboys heads though.

The reason I'm sold on the PS4 without hesitation is because of what they provided last generation with the PS3. Despite the technical hurdles, the PS3 ended up delivering some of the best gaming experiences I've ever had. A judging by the way the PS4 has already started, we're in for another PS2 era of gaming.

Exactly. If that was the case then PS3, PS2 and PS1 would have all been failures...

I'm guessing I should put off my PS4 purchase until then.
