Our New Consoles are Now Playing the Waiting Game

If you’re the proud new owner of a Wii U, then this article isn’t really talking about you. But if you got a PS4 or Xbox One at launch, or unwrapped one during the holiday season, you’re probably already aware that there’s one game you’ll be playing more than any other with your new machine; the waiting game. (Culture, Killzone: Shadow Fall, Knack, Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition)

Well if games are being traded in it must be
cleft5  +   291d ago
I have gotten plenty of use out of my PS4. I beat Killzone, Knack, AC4, and I am working through BF4 right now.

On top of that, I love Warframe and I find myself playing countless hours of that. So happy to have that game on my PS4 because the game didn't run terribly well on my laptop, but it was fun enough for me to deal with those issues.

I am not a big mp person, but if I was there is no end to how many hours I could get out of some of the fps games. And Blacklight is a great online fps game that is f2p, don't even need PS+ to play it online. I am looking forward to more games, of course, but right now I am more than satisfied with my PS4. Also, we have Don't Starve coming up. I am loving next-gen.

Good for you.

Pretty much playing the same things. KZ, AC4, BF4, but I have Lego Marvel as the final game (VERY TIME CONSUMING trying to collect everything).

I'm actually selling my PS4 (I enjoy it so much), but at this point it's more important for me to finish upgrading my PC, and I'll buy a new PS4 around the holiday when there are more games to play (not a fan of the waiting, but I just can't help, buying Day 1).

Titanfall is just around the corner, cant wait to see it on Xbox One!!!
BABYLEG  +   291d ago
Games I've played so far on Xbox one.

Ryse - better than the reviews. That last mission made me feel like a fuckin boss.

NBA2K14 - Its NBA2K14

COD: ghost - eh

Dead rising - First game. Loved it. Got the meg man costume beast mode. Me and my bud went zombie slaying on dozens of occasions. Beat the game together as well. Kinect controls are great, yell "over here" to call zombies.. Ummm show me that on any other system. Not starting a war, just saying.

Halo Spartan assault - I had it on my phone and got a discount. It is what it is. Fun to play in bursts like any other mobile game.

peggle 2 - tryna to beat each level by completing all objectives is hard as fuck. And addicting. Still playing.

and now for my favorite Xbox one game so far.

Max: The curse of brotherhood.

I would explain why but I don't care to elaborate. I cant even rebut because n4g wanna give me one bubble because I enjoy Xbox and is a fan of MS. Fuck an explanation, go buy an Xbox and play it instead of paying 400$ for a boring ass 8gig box. Every ps4 owner knows that's the truth. I have friends who bought the ps4 like everyone else and they all keep saying.. The games are coming.

wanna know how I got to play all those games. My buddy and I traded games with each other. I'm in FL and he's in GA. We had to mail each other the games.

I said that to say this.. We both wish MS kept its original polices.

Babyleg out

This author is an idiot.

He shouldn't lump the XBOX ONE in with the PS4.

The XBOX ONE has the best co-op game released this year in Dead Rising 3, the longest lasting game in Forza 5, they have Ryse, Killer Instinct, &Spartan Assault. Also, great console functionality.

Also, coming soon is a system seller in Titanfall. Then Quantum Break will arrive. So you can't say the XBOX ONE has no games.
pennywhyz  +   291d ago
Way better launch then PS4.The only game I got for ps4 is KZ.Besides knack every thing else is multi-platform. Lame
Phoceenatic  +   291d ago
The waiting game for XB1 ends with Titanfall. It ends for the PS4 with Second Son.
amiga-man  +   291d ago
I want Driveclub!!!
BoriboyShoGUN  +   291d ago
yeah DriveClub being delayed hurt big time!!! and Watchdogs didnt help either! I play BF4, KZ, Warframe, Resogun, hell all of the games I guess and I'm still definately feel like something is missing :(
mikeslemonade  +   291d ago
Don't Starve for free next week
KillrateOmega  +   291d ago
Yeah. Pretty much.
cleft5  +   291d ago
I am already satisfied with the PS4, so there is no waiting game for me. Definitely hyped for Second Son.
SlapHappyJesus  +   291d ago

I am more excited for Quantum Break, truthfully.

theres actually a lot of games. Resogun which is free, abunch of free to playgames, and multiplats and exclusives. but then again I don't game a lot. but either way you shouldn't be running out of games so soon. They just came out a month and a half ago
JBSleek  +   291d ago
Resogun isn't free...
mpnothanks  +   291d ago
Utalkin2me  +   291d ago
No pay wall for resogun...Part of the 59 a year for PS+....
DarkZane  +   291d ago

It's not 59.99$, it's 49.99$ a year.
SonyNGP  +   291d ago
The $49.99 a year IS the paywall for Resogun, unless you buy the game.
ziggurcat  +   291d ago
It is with PS+
ifistbrowni  +   291d ago
lets see... pay $15 for resogun, or pay $15 for 3 months of PS+???

JBSleek  +   291d ago
All of you above have to have issues...

If you pay for PS+ that doesn't make the game free you already paid for it. I'm so confused with this stance. If you pay a subscription fee that doesn't make the games free.

This idea that PS+ games are free isn't true because if you don't have PS+ you don't have the games. That isn't free. It's a SUBSCRIPTION!

MetaReapre  +   290d ago
Considering that PS+ is required for most games to play online (like Xbox live) that if you have a ps4 you will have PS+ for just that therefore you get resogun as a FREE bonus along with the rest of the freebies you get and discounts that you get on ps3/4. So seriously those that say PS+ games aren't free are either Xbox fanboys or so pessimistic that they just can't see whats really there... sure if you don't have PS+ already and don't wanna keep paying for it I understand but to say resogun isn't free with ps+ is just stupid, you don't get PS+ just for resogun, you get it to have great deals on games and to try out games that you would have never bought for free also for the requirement on the ps4.

There's SOME games, not a lot. I'm not upset though, I knew there was going to be a waiting game when I purchased my new consoles. However, for the past 2 weeks, my PS4 has been collecting dust. I went back to playing PC games. My DS4 still gets daily use on my PC though :D
Rageanitus  +   291d ago
Resogun is only good for short spurts also IMO Arcade style game. I don't really see it as a full fledged game.

Plus it aint free unless you get PS+
mikeslemonade  +   291d ago
If you're a serious gamer your gonna get PS+ anyway. Just like if you talk to a xbox 360 gamer online, you automatically assume they have XBL gold.

Even though the attach ratio is only 40% the people who are debating and trolling the internet are either a Gold and Plus members. And you get the first month for free when you get a PS4.
Rageanitus  +   291d ago
You dont have to get XBL or PSN to be a serious gamer.

I see it more of a cash grab than ANYTHING.

Just look at the most popular multiplayer games its COD! yet you can play it for free on the PC

Truth is consoles are geared towards more non serious gamers vs the PC market. And the PC crowd see's alot of things in the console market as a cash grab.
awesomeisjayell  +   291d ago
you guys are so funny with this free games business just bc its free doesn't mean its good PS4 fanboys are such cheap ass gamers smh. ill pay for anything as long as its good. There are good games out on X1 sorry i can't say the same about ps4 lol.

I totallydont understand the resofun love, i played and thought it was meh. Not sure the hype.
Rhezin  +   291d ago
yeah I didn't even know Xbox One had Quantum Break, until I saw the awesome trailer a couple weeks back. Remedy is such an awesome developer.
Pixel_Enemy  +   291d ago
I bought a 360 just to play Alan Wake and I was really disappointed. The story was cool but the game play was so repetitive. Flashlight enemies, shoot enemies. Power is down in this area, find generator and start it up. Over and over again. Generators were just conveniently sprinkled all over the map. The game was over hyped for sure.
Skip_Bayless  +   291d ago
It was nice when it came in in 2011(?). It was more of a showcase game.

That's why Quantam Theory looks graphically impressive.
kingduqc  +   291d ago
lul consoles
SlapHappyJesus  +   291d ago
Hey, I love my PC.
Favorite platform to game on, but that doesn't stop me from grabbing the new consoles once they have a solid list of exclusives.
giovonni  +   291d ago
It comes with the territory What I am excited about are the surprised hits that no one expected gears, uncharted blah blah blah
dethpuck  +   291d ago
Just downloaded power star golf and gonna pick up ryse soon . Plenty to play on Xbox one so far
beatled  +   291d ago
I will get both the ps4 and xbox1 eventually

theres just nothing right now that I must have

if deep down is done right, that could be the thing that pulls me in... I love my rpgs, but right now pc has so much going on,,,nothing is pulling me in to either console
Necro_559  +   291d ago
That waiting game literally ends in 2 months. The Wii U has been out for an entire year and it barely has 1 good game and a remake. In that same time, the amount of games coming to PS4 and Xbox ONE will literally blow the Wii U out the air. It wont even be a competition. I mean hype alone for TitanFall destroys anything the Wii U has to offer.
KratosSaveUs  +   291d ago
Stop hating on the Wii U.
SlapHappyJesus  +   291d ago
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Serjikal_Strike  +   291d ago
My ps3 still has great games to look forward to playing, if some of you guys got rid of your old consoles then it's too bad you'll be missing out
KratosSaveUs  +   291d ago
Driveclub in February. InFamous Second Son/Ground Zeroes/FF beta/Dying Light in March.

phantasy star universe 2 need to come too ps4. i have it on my computer but my computer is trash
vikingland1  +   291d ago
I'm still playing my XB1 & PS4 games almost every day . I aint waiting for nothing yet . When I beat all my games maybe then I will be waiting.
the worst  +   291d ago
Rise is trash 5/10 it should of been free
KakashiHotake  +   291d ago
This is one of the main reasons I held out on getting a PS4 at launch, because the real games don't start rolling out at until around March. In the meantime, this is the best time to catch up on games you may have missed. For me I'm currently catching up on some 3DS and playing AC4 on PC. I have no complaints but that's just me though. By the time I've ran through on all these games Drive Club, Infamous, Metal Gear Solid, Watch Dogs, etc. will be out.
worldwidegaming  +   291d ago
Playing the Wii U more than either system.
That and my PS3. poor guys who traded in your PS3...
What is wrong with you? are you serious?
mhunterjr  +   291d ago
No waiting game here. My first game was dead rising3, already got 70+ hrs in and still have plenty to do. Then I got battlefield 4, which I've hardly touched (I'm wIting till the get the online kinks out). Then I got assassins creed 4, which will last me forever, because I like to complete all missions w/o being detected whenever possible. I recently beat max curse of brotherhood, and got all the collectibles, but I've still got some achievements to get. I also get in game of Peggie 2 every now and then.

After getting my fill of these games, I'll pick up Ryse and Forza. Hopefully, Forza will be cheaper or be bundled with the DLC . And Ryse should be dirt cheap by then.

I never feel like I've 'beaten' a game, until I've unlocked everything or collected everything. I'd never pay $60 bucks just to play through a 10hr story and be done with it. I won't be finished with what I've got before TitanFall drops...
