The Xbox One launch this week, The following list of games that will be on the podium in the first week.n2g
Meh. Nothing there to compel me enough to want an XBox One.
But knack is compelling enough to get a PS4?
Didn't pick up Knack with the PS4 so I'd have to say No to that as well.
I think that fact that the xbone is visually last gen with a majority of the titles is compelling enough to not get the stupid thing.
I don't get the hate on Knack. |Is it because its not a shooter with explosions??
13 games? Is that all? Seems remarkably sparse. PS4 launched with almost twice that amount and the press are belabouring it for not having enough software. The 11th hour Ryse embargo is rather telling of its quality too.
@bicfitness Considering the PS4 launched with a ton of bad indie games, I take XBO launch over the PS4 one any day.
Well whatever excalibur bought wasn't good enough to keep him entertained I guess...he's still here trolling
Lol. These comments are hilarious. Xbox games suck! Im gonna go play.... resogun for the next 6 months! Xbox graphics suck! *looks at ryse, and goes off to sulk in a corner*
@corvusmd Whatever I bought I can't play at work, see how that works? And to be clear, I'm not hating on the Xbox One for their game line up, there is just nothing there that makes want to go out and spend $500.00 to play, especially with Microsoft's current vision of next Gen gaming. As far as Knack goes, I'm not hating on it either, it's just not the type of game I play so therefor I had no interest in dropping $60.00 on it something I wouldn't enjoy playing, launch title or not.
Why did you even get a next-gen console if the best lineup doesn't appeal to you?
Outside of future Ryse and Forza reviews, it's comical to call the lot of mediocre exclusive Xbox One games available at launch "the best lineup". Look at it this way, 6 of your 8 exclusives reviewed so far are getting beaten in critical reception by a download-only twin-stick arcade shooter that has 5 levels and is cheap/free.
That's your opinion.
@Raven722; isn't it incredible that this seems to apply to both PS4 and Xbox One launch lineup? Ironically, I personally wouldn't touch the twin stick shooter with a single stick. It ain't my type of game, nor can I envision why a twin stick shooter is getting so much critical reception? Why are indie games so much appreciated and hyped all of a sudden?
So we get it, your not interested but I bet you this is not the last xbox one related article you troll... You think peeps would be playing their ps4 or watching ps4 videos. .. This list should be about 21 launch games.
theres 0 good games on PS4 (excluding multiplats) so if your a gamer..then definitely an xbox is your choice
the last of us says hi. so i should just get an xbox and miss out on naughty dogs next gem? no thanks
if u think buying a console for 1 game every 5 years is appropriate then sure go ahead lol
Let's cut the crap... only a blind Sony fanboy wouldn't admit that the X1 has a better launch lineup then the PS4. The problem is the future. Can Microsoft keep the exclusives coming in a regular basis? It didn't happen with the X360. X360 quality exclusives were few and quite sparse.
you sir are truth itself
I never liked Dead Rising because of time limits. I never play racing Sims so I never will play Forza. I don't think Ryse has an main character that will match God Of Wars Kratos. I enjoy Knack, Killzone, and the downloaded games also on my PS4. I like to see what's next for Microsoft I'm looking forward to owning an Xbox One next year or so. I hope you all enjoy your games coming this Friday. Xbox One will be welcomed to the next generation. ^~^
Funny thing u come here talking trash and don't like knack which is a good game by the way, u ever seen Ryse ???? Must be a little sour after getting a brick huh??? Glad mine works just fine and my xbox one, yes I get my systems and games a little early.
Dead Rising 3 is currently rated higher then both Knack and Kill Zone SF.
you clearly dont mean resolution but yeah its a good game i cant wait to play it.
There are a lot of last gen games rated higher, like The last of us
ps4 had two big exclusives at launch while xbone has dead rising,fighter within, forza 5,killer instinct,and ryse
Ryse and Forza 5. Can't wait to play them both.
Doesn't matter what the best launch line up is. 360 had the better one as well, with a lower price. That's why it sold so well. But PS3 continued to push out exclusives. Sony is in it for the long haul. Microsoft is sprinting out the gate, and will run out of gas with their price, and their games. Sony is steadily jogging along.
That's garbage. PS3 only caught up with 360 numbers because Japanese refuse to buy 360's and bought millions of PS3. I will not get into the reasoning, just giving the facts. They were very few system selling exclusive that weren't made by Naughty Dog.
I guess anyone outside the us is japanese to you...there's a song about this.
Infamous 1 & 2, Beyond: Two Souls, Heavy Rain, God of War, Gran Turismo, Killzone, Little Big Planet, Metal Gear Solid, Resistance, Ratchet and Clank, Sly Cooper, Ni No Kuni. Then ND titles, Uncharted and The Last of Us. Compared to this: Crackdown, Gears of War, Halo, Forza, Fable. Forgive me if I forgot some.
@ CalebZachary8411 way to be biased jerk! you forgot tales of xillia ps3 exclusive :)
@mkis. Don't get me wrong, I love a lot of the exclusives from Sony's first party studios and have a ps3 for that very reason but he does have a point about Japan being a big swing in Sony's favor. 20 million ps3's as opposed to 1 million 360's. That accounts for about 25% of all ps3's sold.
I understand on a video games website by and large their is little interest for things other than gaming.......with that said I for One am looking forward to not ONLY the games coming for Xbox but the functionality as well. This machine will capture hardcore and casual gamers alike. I have the ps4 with Killzone.......it's ok,scratch that it's pretty good. Does it make me think that there is a huge gap between ps3/360 in the graphics department? NO it does not.......it is better just not huge....in my opinion. Sony is going to have to do better than that to make me buy multiplat on there system.
I love my ps4's lightning fast ui and features. I can't wait to see what xb1 is like considering that is its focus...
The list is incomplete... BF4, Crimson Dragon, Powerstar Golf, NBA Live 14, Lococyle, Lego Marvel, Skylanders Swap Force, Zumba Fitness, and Xbox Fitness are all missing...
Overall both lineups lack a clear winner...so far resogun is the highest rated exclusive. But i guess forza will score well
How butthurt are you fanbabies that you thumbed down this guys comment for simply saying that one PS4 game is currently the highest rated? Wow, this site is one major fanboy-fest right after another.
Did you stop to consider that ppl downvoted him because he said forza would score well? Judging by your comment, you might want to use the word "fanboy" with caution.
It is quite alright, people are passionate about this stuff. Although it is true I can't really tell which part of my comment is getting disagrees. Resogun (ps4) is an 83 on metacritic and Dead Rising 3 (Xbox One) is a 78. If you want to put stock into that there you go! Incidentally I find Knack to be an amazing launch title that was severely under-appreciated. Game informer score is more accurate. And yes forza is like a new god of war or a new ratchet and clank...not really a risk easy scores. Would expect an 80-90 range.
I think each console has at least 2 exclusive games people really want. Though not all of them are getting 10/10 reviews people are enjoying the experience i bet. (reviews these days are very subjective anyway) Hopefully we get a few more games before christmas. For me its XBO with Ryse and DR3 Happy gaming!
Where's Super Mario 3D World? The best game coming out this week.
mario? i kid i kid
