PS4 exclusives that could make you switch console

This is probably a game that’s slipped well under the radar of many a PS4 owner. It is a ninja based free-running game in which the player is tasked with getting from point A to point B, collecting as many coins on the way as possible. Obviously, traversing the small maps isn’t easy and there are a number of obstacles in the way, from mines to electrified droids. I had N+ on the Xbox 360 and loved every second of it. Sure it was ridiculously frustrating and at times I wanted to launch my controller through the TV, but it always drew me back. This was mainly because the challenge was fun and the game was quaint in its simplicity. It had a memorable soundtrack and a very retro feel, which I love in a cheap game. I’m pretty upset that N++ won’t be coming to the Xbox One. (Deep Down, inFamous: Second Son, PS4, Shadow of the Beast, The Order: 1886)

The only game that interests me on the PS4 at the moment is The Order and I wouldn't give up the XB1 for that one game.
iamnsuperman  +   728d ago | Intelligent
There is a lot of hype for that game but we haven't seen much of it. I am waiting until we see more before I get excited for the Order

In less than two weeks from now, the hype will be justified. Trust me.

(No I have no real clue, actually...but still, trust me. lol)

I could never imagine "switching" consoles......ADDING another console yes, but why would you get rid of one and miss out on all it's exclusives, just for the other?

Having both consoles ensures you don't miss out on the best each console has to offer.

"Having both consoles ensures you don't miss out on the best each console has to offer."


I wouldn't 'switch' console. Yeah you can have a MAIN and a secondary console to play your multiplats, but buy both if you can and don't deprive yourself of some great experiences (unless the exclusives on a particular console don't excite you at all).

You see people on here make competing lists of exclusive games when they argue their point. I just put those lists together and that's my library of games :D Muhaha

As a student working on getting the grades for a PhD application, I can speak for the benefits of having just one console. If you get what I mean.

Sometimes it's better to not invest your entire life into the games industry. Unless your truly addicted to your hobby I don't see why you really need multiple platforms, there are plenty of great experiences you can have on either, more than the average consumer would ever need to occupy their spare time.

If that is really your opinion on video games, then you are the bane of my existence. I would love more games without some competitive component like multiplayer and/or horde modes. I love games with story, and that's just what this game is trying to focus on. A great story.

Forza? Sorry. Maybe a proper Forza, but why people continue to call THAT version of Forza up in high esteem is hilarious.

It's pre 2009 PC driving game tech in 1080p. That's it.

Try playing some 2009-2013 PC driving games and you'll see why Forza is actually pretty embarrassing.

SMH at a forward rendered driving game in 2014 being used as an example to switch consoles.

Wait until a real Forza comes out that utilizes graphical techniques available at the end of the last decade and then you'll see why Forza was such crap graphically. Hell give me Dirt2 from PC that cam with my old ATI 5850 that used deferred rendering and DX11 effects. Hell you could also run it >1080p. It looked pretty good on my old NEC CRT at 2048x1536.

I get that there are or you expect to have exclusives on Xbox One. No problem there. I get that you like driving games and Forza. But you really should look around before saying stuff.

Who knows maybe Forza would have been delayed if they hadn't cut half the cars and stuff out of the game. Plus Driveclub won't cost me $60, and does utilize deferred rendering.

A couple months doesn't matter, I still have all the other deferred rendered and DX11 driving games on Steam/Origin to play.

Sony has a dozen studios, you KNOW they are going to bring it with IP.

You hear Spencer with Xbox say new IP is critical, but where are the studios? Once they form/buy 10 studios or more, then I'll say...good...they'll be able to have some nice 2-3 years. But we can't start that clock yet.

Titanfall is on PC, don't need XB1, and it'll be definitive version.

Syleros  +   728d ago
"The Order looked cool until they started running around with futuristic guns and stuff..."

so you mean the first 6 seconds of the order looked good, cause they showed "futuristic" weapons in the first 10 seconds. Also i wouldn't really clasify that as futuristic, it's more steampunk, minus the steam. it's clearly not in a realistic universe we exist in.

Have you notice how every IP on the xbox has lost their main creator's, developers and studio's?

Those IP have lost their soul.

That is where you see the difference between Sony and xbox, Sony know how important that is.

Or how they take a studio (black tusk) with a lot of talent and hype (especially after e3 reveal/tech demo) and force them to drop their ideas to produce another gears game.

They know that those titles will likely sell, nothing more. I hate that mindset.
assdan  +   728d ago
Infamous is a fantastic game. Deep down looks like it could be promising. The order is looking pretty good so far. This year is awesome for games. No matter which console you got. I'm far more interested the ps4 exclusives. But even eliminating both exclusive line ups, it's still a great year. This gen is starting off way better than the last one IMO.
combatcash  +   728d ago
For me much like last gen the last guardian is what I am waiting on.

Anything by Naughty dog the next god of war just to see how much Santa Monica can push the pretty graphics.
ITPython  +   728d ago
Let's look at both consoles logically for a second.

What is the ratio of multiplatform games to individual console exclusives? 3:1, 4:1, 5:1, 10:1? Either way I think it's safe to assume that multiplat games are more abundant then exclusives.

Now let's consider the fact that multiplat games are always going to be better on the PS4 (unless MS pays to have parity, and even then it's still equal). Therefore mix the PS4 exclusives and superior multiplat games, and the PS4 technically is going to have significantly more games than the XB1, possibly at some huge ratio like 20:1. Why? Because the only games the XB1 will have that can't be had on the PS4 is it's exclusives, and since multiplat games are better on the PS4 there is no reason to play those on the XB1. So the PS4 gets all the multiplat games + all it's exclusives, and the XB1 only has it's exclusives. That's a huge difference in games.

Logically, and from a gamer standpoint, a PS4 should be the console everybody gets first. Then if they have the funds and think that XB1 exclusives will be worth it, they can add in a XB1.
TruthBTold  +   727d ago
If I had the money and time I would buy. If they removed the Kinect to lower the price and I had more time I would buy. As it is I barely have time to play PS3 and PS4 but I'm certain XBox will have some good exclusives this gen. I lean more towards PS as I personally like the unique games they bring out.
dannygamer  +   727d ago
Any Xbox One exclusives that could make PS4 users switch console?
TH3BR3W  +   727d ago
Honestly I am waiting for more about quantum break. If it turns out to be as good as it looks so far. I might consider adding the xb1 to my collection of gaming machines. If it's a crapshot game then xb1 will have to find something else to get me interested in it.

The only reasons I bought ps4 was for infamous, the order, and the NHL series as EA terminated the development of it for PC. As for all of the multiplats, PC all the way. I trust that sony's multiple studios will produce more exclusives that I will for sure buy like TLOU.
donman1  +   727d ago
Nope. Plus, XboxOne is over priced and under powered. Its simply a terrible investment.
showtimefolks  +   727d ago
i only have time for one and that's even stretching it, my choice is ps4 because my choice was ps1,ps2 and ps3. More power to you if you like wiiu or xbox one.

I just like playing single player exclusives and for my money sony delivers in that area more than any other
TheTowelBoy  +   727d ago
I don't know why you're getting a a bunch of dislikes, and I agree I have a Ps4, gaming laptop, 360 and Ps3 and I only play my Ps4 to play AC4 and Killzone. Love the way the Order LOOKS right now. But I'm cautious about it. Btw I'm buying an X1 when there's a kinectless version. Get TF for PC, looks good.

Why do you have to give it up? Couldn't you own more than one console??
Chaostar  +   728d ago
Let's face it, you could bring out the greatest game in history and some people would never make the switch, either way.

Why does it have to be switch anyway? Why not get both if there are games that interest you on both platforms? Buy a Wii U and Vita while you're at it :)
jmc8888  +   728d ago
If you can afford both, then get both.

There's two kinds of switches.

1. Where you switch because you can only afford one console and thus you want to get the one that has the best games, best versions of games, etc.

2. Where you switch where you buy most of your content eve if you buy two. So last generation most people bought multiplatform games on Xbox 360, yet had their PS3 for exclusives. This generation the switch will be that they'll be buying their multiplatform games on PS4 (as well as PS4 exclusives) and only buy Xbox One exclusives on their Xbox One.

The question is, Microsoft doesn't have many studios to pump out exclusives. They say it is important for new IP's, like Iwata says he knows he wants to avoid a game drought for Nintendo systems after launch.

So I do think many people are going to initially use their secondary system far less, because Microsoft simply doesn't have the studios. We'll see in 2-3 years if Microsoft has a bunch of 1st party exclusives coming out or not. But first we'll see the news that they are buying or starting a new developer.

...and you're right, same thing goes with the Wii U. (I'll separate this into console not handheld)

At least you know exactly what you get with Nintendo 1st party games.

Honestly I don't see any game now causing a person to purchase a PS4 if they already have an X1. Most of the people I know purchased the PS4 for its raw power. The real question is which multi-play game will decide your system of choice. I'm currently trying to Platinum TR Definitive Edition, that game is beautiful.
Chrisgamerguy  +   728d ago
Both consoles have exclusives worth buying the console for.
BlakHavoc  +   728d ago
I agree. I honestly think it's unnecessary to buy both consoles, considering the main thing that separates them are exclusives. And with that in mind both consoles maybe put out one to two worthwhile exclusives a year, Imo it doesnt make sense to have both consoles for one or two games a year you could only get on that console.
Hicken  +   728d ago
I wouldn't say they both currently have exclusives worth getting the console for, but they are upcoming for each.

jimjam3442  +   728d ago
i don't understand what you mean really, i had a ps2 gamecube and xbox at the same time, i got the xbox 360 because it came out a year early. if the ps3 had come out a year early i would have gotten that instead, im not a fanboy or "loyal" customer. when you're loyal to a company, the consumer gets screwed (xbox 360 to xbox 1) which is why this gen i chose ps4. if the ps5 sucks believe me ill get an xbox 2.
InTheZoneAC  +   728d ago
but what did xbox offer that made you pick 360 over ps3 besides coming out first?

I have all three next gen consoles.

None of those games would make me switch from one console to PS4.

If you own Wii U it is probably because of Mario and Zelda. None of those games would be comparable to those.

If you own an XBone it is probably because you want Halo and Gears of War. Again, none of those games are comparable. And with Titanfall only a month away a lot of shooter fans are waiting to see if it lives up to expectations.

The reason I bought the PS4 is for God of War and Uncharted. Uncharted has a real sequel coming out and I will wait for the God of War sequel patiently.
PrinceOfAllSaiyans  +   728d ago
Funny how all these Xbox fanboys are talking crap about the PS4 having no exclusives. When they know damn well that MS always release a strong exclusive lineup and then it starts to die off. Their biggest "exclusive" will be on PC where it will be the definitive version and have more players. They will milk the same played out franchises like Halo (which hasn't been good since H3) Gears of War (Which hasn't been good since Gears 2) and Fable. They have to pay off companies for exclusives. Like DR3 and Titanfall. MS has no 1st party studios. Xbox fans love to brag about Black Tusk who is pretty irrelevant, and they even go as far as calling them the next "Naughty Dog".
The Order 1886 and Uncharted alone will be better than anything the Xbox One will get anytime soon. We already know everything MS has planned all the way up to 2016, and its not impressive. Meanwhile we still don't know what Sony Santa Monica, Japan Studio, Media Molecule, Quantic Dream, Guerrilla Games, Sony London are working on.

InFamous Second Son, Driveclub, MLB 14 The Show (which is the best baseball franchise ever), The Order 1886, and Uncharted. That sounds better then the Xbox ones upcoming tired out exclysivez
Oh and Everybody's Gone Into The Rapture, SOMA, Rime, Shadow Of The Beast, Shadow Warrior, Planetside 2, and Everquest Next.

I got my PS4 day one and never really planned to get an XBone. I just have a preference. Maybe after a price drop I'll grab it for the kids since they like to move around with the wii. So that way the kids will be happy and if there's a Xbone game I want I can play it but 99% of my focus and funds are going into the playstation. The people that have xbones probably won't drop their 500 dollar investment to switch to the ps4 I know I wouldn't I'm not made of money lol.

Seriously, all this ps4 hype about downloadable games???? Seriously, why would you pay 400$ to play crap that could be on the current consoles. Dont say they wont run, thats a load of crap. Any worth while game is out on 360 and ps3. games play the same just look prettier or uglier. nothing to make me want to buy a dust collector. This is the same thing as last generation. Sony takes years to put out decent games worth buying there console. But the one thing they sell better than any other company out there, obviously is hype. Hype for the future, because for the present theres nothing to play after the first week of ownership. Hype for future games years off. As someone who has been through every console launch, I know from past that the time for a ps4 is at the soonest next year. The xbox1, goes the same. Titanfall could have been a system seller, but its on the 360 so that kills any reason for that system too. I'll wait, not for a price decrease, but for a content increase.

The PS4 is first and foremost the BEST gaming console this gen.
