Why the Xbox One could dominate 2014

IM PLAYIN looks at the potential of the Xbox One to catch up to the PS4 and perhaps even overtake it in the coming year.

"In perhaps one of the fiercest and most memorable console battles in recent history, so much focus has been put on these two new consoles. Both the Xbox One and PS4 had insane starts in their hopefully long and prosperous lives, but it appears that the PS4 is simply selling better. As much as any Xbox fan wants to argue, the numbers don’t lie! With over 4 million units sold, the PS4 has broken all kinds of records, becoming the best selling console of all time, beating another Sony console (the PSP) and getting the PS4 into the history books. But I don’t think that Sony fans should decide absolute victory just yet, with the Xbox One selling over 3 million units and growing, they are just getting started. While the opening battles may be won, the war is far from over." (PS4, Xbox One)

i still dont see this happening, xbox fans believe all xbox needs to win is titanfall but the hype is bigger than the sales will be, its a great game, yes it is but one game doesnt make all the difference, to me and to all should be about games.
ps4 offers games at better quality when multiplatforms and it will have more exclusives than xbox down the line, we know sony had WAY more exclusives with ps3 compared with xbox 360 and they will have as many or more with ps4, indies alone will give ps4 a sheer amount of games but that does not mean it will have any less AAA.
im hoping xbox one can deliver good exclusives too but if history is to be repeated xbox wont have as many exclusives as people hope they can offer.

To me one big point that will decide who has more or better games will be this year E3, im positive playstation is just starting to amaze players, with the news ps4 has over 100 games planned for ps4 this year and who knows how many more for the next one, E3 will be a deciding point to help players foresee which console will be better for games for the next year

"To me one big point that will decide who has more or better games will be this year E3"

Going by the past three year's E3s we know exactly how it will turn out. Sony will have yet another show that is completely filled with games with major new titles being announced. While Microsoft will spend 75 percent of their show hyping the Kinect junk, show off the same tired tiny group of Xbox franchises, and then try to make a huge deal about some multiplatform game that they try to pretend is exclusive to the Xbox One.

And then Sony will go and do two more complete shows, Toyko Game Show in Japan and Gamerscon in Europe. And those two shows still won't be enough time for Sony to show off major new PS4 titles that get their own special announcements.

Sony is going to be absolutely flooded with exclusive content this gen:

1. The largest first party of all consoles. Absolutely dwarfs Microsoft's first party. Even worse when ignore the casual shovelware Kinect focused developers for Microsoft

2. Pretty much the entire Japan console gaming market outside of Nintendo first party exclusives for the PS4

3. The huge number of PSN exclusive smaller developers. Made even larger with the PS4 this gen thanks to Microsoft alienating so many of the smaller studios out there

4. And with how badly the PS4 is crushing the Xbox One in sales in Europe, we might start seeing European console developers start going Sony exclusive

LeeMajors: "And with how badly the PS4 is crushing the Xbox One in sales in Europe, we might start seeing European console developers start going Sony exclusive"

Yes, even the absolute best case for Microsoft is getting killed in two out of the three major console markets - Japan and Europe. At best Microsoft might see some better sales in the US. But that would only less how badly they are losing to Sony.

Even a pick up in the US market seems unlikely for Microsoft with just how badly people are reacting to the game that is supposed to save the Xbox One - Titanfall. People are calling it a CoD clone with mechs. Last gen graphics and resolution with a frame rate only in the 30s. On top of all that it is available on the 360 and the graphically superior version is on the PC that no one needs an Xbox to play.

With the increasing number of rumors of Microsoft preparing to dump the Xbox, 100 dollars more expensive than the hugely more powerful PS4, and the smallest first party supporting it, the Xbox One even dominating just the US is something that would take a miracle.

The PS4 is outselling the Xbox One 4-1 right now. And that is with the PS4 being sold out almost everywhere. That is already at point where it costs Sony almost nothing to secure exclusive deals. If it continues at that rate developers are going to start dropping Xbox One versions of their games just like they have on losing platfoms all through the history of the console market.

Even worse for the Xbox One is the increasing number of reports of Microsoft actively looking to dump the Xbox or try sell of parts of it. That's not a platform developers are going to have much confidence in and are going to devote many resources to.

Sony "always" tell you they have all this CG movies/ games exclusives for this year only to get you excited and then push it back a year or to and then ending up to be a regular CG movie/game like the others. Hence below and that Freetown play car game they told us we would have last year. Hey are great about getting you excited about games I give you that. They have been doing that since the first ps. I know, I've had them all. We all bough this system thinking its a core gaming machine but the other one it's getting all those great games and it's making us look skinny . Now they tell us they have 100 games for us this year but I wish they don't include the indie games in this so called "100" games. Is MS can not include kinect and indie games, neither should we. We gotta stop giving them as pass or they are going use us. Ps the bigger force against DRM but the first giving you the playstation now paid service and Kojima giving us discount to buy the digital version of a game so we can not resell it. AM I THE ONLY ONE THAT SEES THIS ? I'm loving my ps4, but they better stop playing me.

scott182  +   461d ago
I could see the sales looking more comparable on a week by week basis for a month or two, but to catch up to the PS4 completely it would have to be the second coming of halo 1... And a multiplayer only game might not be that. I like the look of Titanfall for the most part. And it's not like the PS4 doesn't have some awesome games coming, they just don't market them as much as Microsoft.

Look at The Last of Us, so many people claimed it the game of the year, the game of the gen and some even claimed one of the greatest ever, and even that didn't make people hoard ps3's(I loved the game btw, just being honest)

As for the month of march, there is a chance the X1 could perform as good or better in some markets, we will just have to see.

Based on current sales it's not likely, but it is possible.

The XBO needs 3 things to be the top selling console this year.

1. Exclusive "in demand" Features: XB-TV, Better apps, delivery on all the promises of the reveal (Halo series, etc...).

2. A great E3 showing, with confirmed release dates for everything shown thus far, so gamers can prepare to get on board when a game they're looking forward to is close to launching.

3. A price cut. This is the main and most important obstacle to overcome.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   461d ago
I'm not sure why people are disagreeing with @Convas's comment none of that happen this past E3.

"While Microsoft will spend 75 percent of their show hyping the Kinect junk, show off the same tired tiny group of Xbox franchises, and then try to make a huge deal about some multiplatform game that they try to pretend is exclusive to the Xbox One."

If hes speaking about 2010, 11, 12 sure but 13 was a complete turnaround around and was reminiscent of 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9.

But if you wanna talk about E3's as to which company made them the most money and pushed more consoles that holiday. Then MS did just that.

But as to appealing to the hardcore audience, clearly Sony.

@Majors your comment doesn't even cover both sides of the argument. Its just a pro Sony comment with out looking at both sides of the spectrum.

What about those studios and games MS has been talking about that's been in development? Or the rumored price cut this summer.

I'm not saying these things are a winning factor but it certainly will keep MS competitive.

Sony's games, and services looking more appealing by the day but MS is cooking something up to simply stay competitive.

I'm not gonna give a prediction on who wins anything. Not only is it WAY to early but I really don't care. Just as long MS and Sony are selling fine then its ok.

Delusion is great with this one. Last years E3 MS won and they did not show any Kinect junk, or same tired group of Xbox Franchises, what really bad is that sony won off politics not showing off any other games. There February reveal was better the E3.

it could happen....but that is if ONLY the Ps4 dont sell a SINGLE unit until 2015 and the console never launch in Japan, so yeah it could happen....but in a blatantly impossible way.

now back to reality, the ps4 will launch in Japan wich will sell a lot with Yakuza Ishin, then you will have many games announced at E3 wich will generate a lot of hype and attract peoples toward the console even more than now.

"Last years E3 Microsoft won"
Really? What show were you watching?

"Sony won off politics"
No, Sony won by catering to the gaming community and by not lying to us or trying to sell us on a cable box service that happens to *also* play video games.

"not showing off any other games"
Sony showed off a ton of great games at E3 including a flood of indie supported titles. Funny how Xbox fans loved XBL arcades when the 360 had a drought of AAA titles, but now that almost every indie studio is supporting Sony, Xbox fans say indie titles don't count.

I agree with you that MS had a much better E3 last year than they did the last few years before it. Kudos to them. And i give them credit for trying to recover after all of their questionable decisions of the past several months. But everything else you said just makes you sound like a bitter fanboy that doesn't want to give Sony the credit they deserve for another successful E3 showing.

"System Seller"

A must have game that can only be played on a system.

Titanfall on the Xbox One is a downgraded port of a PC game that no one needs an Xbox One to play. It has gameplay that has been called CoD with Mechs and bots with horrendous AI. Titanfall isn't a 'system seller' anywhere but in fantasyland.

Edsword  +   461d ago
It's not going to be a huge system seller because it is on 360 and PC. If you want a PS4 and have either the 360 or the PC I just don't see Titanfall convincing you to buy the XB1. If you were going to buy an XB1 regardless or you don't have a 360 or a capable PC then maybe you'll pick up an XB1 if you can't live without Titanfall. However, my guess is that many COD fans can live without because they are still playing Ghost.

Hardware tiled resources is going to hugely boost the graphics of the xb1.

I can't wait to see the ps fanboys jaws drop when they start seeing xb1 games looking better than ps4 games and they don't understand why.

32 mb of esram can display 6gb worth of textures at a moments notice and continue to stream 6gb at a time. This is magnitudes more than the ps4 can display in a total period at all.

2015 will see the xb1 dominate ps4 graphics.

The faster ddr3 memory ms chose to use over the higher latency gddr5 makes perfect sense and was the best choice.

"Hardware tiled resources is going to hugely boost the graphics of the xb1."

This is the delusional technobabble that led so man Xbox fanboys desperately wanted to believe with the PS3 and 360. And after the seven years the PS3 absolutely crushed the 360 in graphics.

The Xbox One graphics hardware is so weak and poorly designed games like Forza had to have massive downgrades just to get it to run 1080p. The PC port of Titanfall is running an outdated Source based engine and the Xbox One can't even run that at 1080p and instead has to render at the last gen resolution of 792p and a framerate that is only in the 30s.
LeeMajors  +   461d ago
Sony let Microsoft get away with forcing multiplatform developers to gimp the PS3 version of games down to 360 graphics levels last gen. That helped mask the massive graphical power advantage the PS3 has over the 360.

That isn't happening this gen. Sony has wised up and is making sure that third party developers are making the PS4 versions of games as good as they can.

stuna1  +   461d ago
The difference in latency between ddr3 memory to gddr5 memory is only 1ms, which is definitely not a factor that matter! Tiled resouces are still restricted and bottlenecked in how much they can achieve in overall graphical fidelity, because the 32mb Esram is still to small and not able to support 1080p resolution without troubles! Not to mention the GPU/CPU are already seriously more underpowered than their competitors.

Eonjay  +   461d ago | Well said
1. First the 6GB of textures would have to be stored in DDR3 so you can only get up to 5 GB I assume.

2. Second, the PS4 doesn't need tiled resources because the main RAM is nearly as fast as ESRAM.

3. You would not want to use the entire 32 MB of memory on texture streaming because you are going to primarily need it for your render
targets.

Games such as Sniper Elite already use tiled resources, and it doesn't look better than the PS4 version, which by every indication is still superior.

@Stuna1

the difference in latency is measured in nanoseconds. You rounded up lol.

geddesmond  +   461d ago
Your right, Titanfall will not boost sales that much for Xbox One. Hype has taken over for a game that looks good but is missing many things that compel a gamer to buy. The online only is a big killer for many people and the 6v6 with bots is another. Just because its the first game from the old COD devs people are putting too much hope in it. But that's what you expect from an Xbox exclusive. It could be the crappest game ever yet the media alays over hypes it. MS PR at its best.

Sony has Europe in the bag and we all know it will have Japan. They also sell the consol in more markets than MS and once Sony start releasing more First party games it will be game over for MS.

I'm not saying the X1 won't sell well but it will never catch the PS4. PS4 has too many things going for it. 1080P at 60 frames, more power, cheaper to buy and more First party devs, constant demand with many gamers like myself still unable to get their hands on one and free PS Plus games every month.

As the sales gap gets bigger the PS4 will have even more going for it when developers see sense in make more exclusives for the Quad.

@Gunstar

See thats the X1 owners mentality. "What else is there to play. As I said in another comment. Esclusives only make up abbout 10-15% of games on a consol catalogue. With X1 you see more exclusives right now because MS pretty much stopped releasing Exclusives for the 360 3 years ago in order to get games for the X1.

While Sony on the other hand have still some exclusives to come for the PS3 and when their First Party devs start announcing games it's game over. I understand when X1 owners say that because frankly that's all they can say against the PS4.

What you gonna play?

Well I still can't get my hands on a PS4 because they always are sold out and I'm not paying 400 euros in advance for a pre order I wont get for weeks.

But when I do get a PS4 I plan on getting Driveclub, KZ shadowfall, BF4, COD Ghosts, Infamous, Watchdogs, Elder Scrools only, DC Universe, Dying Light. Those games there are enough to kill my spare time for the next year and then I'll have all these First party games to enjoy once they get announced.

Don't kid yourself, we all know what happened towards last gen with games for the 360.

@Rafaman Sony already hinted they have a huge portfolio first party of games that were in development. "Sony has no games is not an argument" especially when they have great indie and F2P support.

@Mania "yes xbox 1 has a good set of games released in this 3 months but no matter how you look at it playstation 4 will have more and better exclusives,"

That's a subjective statement More than likely yes but better is a debate. To you they are better but there's other that will say otherwise. Of course its your choice over there's so therefor you ultimately win.

One could say the 360 exclusives sold better than PS3's most of last gen as well as third party games.

We can't just ignore the games that were being pushed on 360 more than its competitor.

Going with that track record I think MS's games will look just as attractive as 360. Titanfall is getting very similar hype to the first Gears at the time. (I know Titanfall isn't a MS game just using hype as an example.)

I think ultimately third party games could sell better on PS4 through out this gen.

Eh the PS4 sold 140k units last week compared to Xbox 1s 53k, thats nearly a 3-1 difference. When did it start happening? and that sales difference will only get bigger after Japan gets thrown in.

@Mania Ok I got it confused.

I thought you were hinting Titanfall, one game could pull a win for MS this year.

System sellers are different. System sellers temporarily boost sales of a console its not made to carry vicory for the entire course of the year. Well, depending on when it gets released though I suppose its possible.

Every gen a console does have that system selling game. Uncharted 1, Metal Gear Solid IV for PS3.

This is really no different then Gears Of War, Mass Effect or Halo 3 at the time.

So in regards to that why can't Titanfall be a system seller? Considering it is on 360 which is the main and only reason I can think of.
sinspirit  +   461d ago
It's beginning to be like the Halo excuse for the 360. And then, after a while they'll start listing off other exclusives that have hype to them, like Ryse and Forza 5 in this case, even though they lack content and were quite disappointing, just to add weight to their justification.

And you notice how many xbox fans have one bubble. A lot. Because this place is infested with people who think Power equals good games. And anyone who says maybe the PS4 hasn't truly done anything to earn this kind of praise, gets their bubbles slaughtered.

E3 will be a big tell for both systems as will them competing in an equal amount of markets. This time next year will paint a much better picture.

Neither console is going anywhere and to all those above predicting doom for the One, not only are you morons but you aren't gamers, because competition causes companies to excel. On top of that a small lead and yes a million (only assume cause neither you or I know the number, funny that they won't just say it) is not enough for a company to not make games for a console that has a huge install base with a history of buying lots of games (look at the last gen attach rate). Money is the biggest and main reason a game is exclusive.

I never said power = good games. But if a multi platform game looks and plays better on PS4 for $100 less wouldn't that be the way to go? I think so.

Also Xbox One is struggling with games at launch and that's big good with a long ways to go and with even more demanding games hitting not to long away.

You're right about E3 also. Sony has won against Microsoft every time if I remeber correctly. Microsoft may turn things around still and get over this resolution hate but I doubt it and I doubt they will show anything better than Sony at E4. When they show Uncharted PS4 is say that game will take the crown at E3. That's just my opinion though.

Titanfall is exclusive ish as I will be buying it on PC even though I own an XB1,Sunset looks fun as heck ... project spark caters to a very specific crowd.... havent seen enough of quantum break but like what I see so far and ....please dont use Halo 2..... I don't care if they upgrade the graphics its halo 2.

Infamous looks fun already have it preordered, MLB Show is the only licensed baseball game so thats a huge win right there and the Order looks like it is about to curb stomp everything graphically. However you left out Shadow of the Beast,Lily bergamo,Deep Down, Final Fantasy XIV (This one is HUGE), Diablo III (Another biggie), DCUO (Another big title),Planetside 2,Tekken Revolution,Rime, Oddworld,Outlast. Now Outlast and Diablo may be timed exclusives but as of now they are only releasing on PS4 I own both systems and am amazed how the Xbox fans always try to make it seem like the XB1 has more games than the PS4 when this is simply not true.

Edited to add.
Guilty Gear Xrd is already exclusive to PS3/PS4 and it is rumored that the next Street Fighter is also Exclusive to PS4. That would be a horrible blow for XB1. I love killer instinct but it cannot hold up against Tekken,SF4 and GG all alone.

I wouldn't even bother naming games to some of these people. PS3 had no games for years according to Xbox 360 fans but we all know how that turned out. The only reason MS has more exclusives at launce is because 2 years ago they basically stopped releasing exclusives for the 360 while Sony gave us games like Tales of Xilia, GOW:A, GT6, Beyond and The Last of Us.

MS has to pay third party devs for games. Lets see how much they'll have to pay for future exclusives when the PS4 is 3 million sales ahead.

And don't forget, exclusive games only take up about 10-15% of the overall catalogue of games on a consol. Who needs Fable when Dragon Age 3 or FF15 is multiplat. Who needs Titanfall when we have BF and COD. Who needs Dead Rising 3 when we have Last Light and so on so one.

LoL... Not only can KI hold it's own against those you mention, but it slaps them across the face and sprints ahead of them.

KI is the best game on any of the new gen systems.

Of course, this is just my opinion, but I would happily have paid the cost of the XB1 if KI had been the only game available.
Kayant  +   462d ago
D4 is AAA?

Tbh PS4's lineup is more attractive/varied to me excluding MLB. Also as pointed out by OsirisBlack PS4 has some big DD titles coming.

XB1 would be Quantum Break, Project Spark, Sunset Overdrive.

And am guessing Sony must likely will have at least one more title for this year to be announced wouldn't be surprised if MS announces one or two more also.

I wouldn't hardly call it clear cut.

Oh, the delusions continue. You must be so heavily insecure about the PS4 domination if you actually are presenting these beliefs to yourself.

PS4 has DriveClub, inFAMOUS, MLB 14, The Order: 1886, Final Fantasy XIV, Deep Down, Planetside 2, Yakuza Ishin, Lily Bergamo, Guilty Gear Xrd.

As far as GAMES go, you know you can't win on that level. PS4 has a whole host of unique and creative small to large scale games from independent developers such as: Daylight, Shadow of the Beast, Outlast, Transistor, Octodad, Velocity 2X, Primal Carnage: Genesis, Helldivers and The Witness.

Then we factor in that these AAA games will be better on the PS4, and I think that most gamers that think long-term will be purchasing the PS4, for the level of diversity alone. If you're the kind of impulse-buying short-term thinker, then sure... Xbone will be for you.

Its funny how your bias shows Xbox One has Plants v Zombies, titanfall, Kinect sports, Quantum Break, Sunset overdrive, D4, Below, Project park, Cobalt, ID@Xbox indies coming and if the rumor floating around is correct then we will have a Forza Horizon and Halo 2 Anniversary or Halo 5. Most of you are riding the wave based on early ps4 sales but if ps3 almost came back to win against Xbox 360 what makes you think that Xbox 1 can't do the same. Enough with the Fanboyism and horrible comparison and fake sales victory since one is in 13 territories and the other is in 52.

Note: Congratulations to Sony on there early success but we all know this console generation is just starting.

"What is with all the PC-elitist-snobs today... Making a fanboy war out of nothing, Sigh..."

I actually find it quite refreshing to have a PC gamer comment rather than what we usually get in every article. Also, I don't understand how you failed to point out mochachino's attempt at flamebait, but pick up IVanSpinal's.

mochachino said that most of the best games are multiplat, and that they LOOK AND RUN BETTER ON PS4.

IVanSpinal implies that they will LOOK AND RUN BETTER ON PC.

Is this an example of selective argumentation? After all, they both have the same message, but conclude with another platform.

@AnteCash

Not commenting on you being wrong, just my observations of the agrees/disagrees. In the PC/Xbox One Titanfall comparisons, the Xbox One version was mocked for being worse than PC, yet here the agrees here send the message that most of those who agreed have PC's worse than Xbox One. Doesn't this suggest that all the mockery was contradictory if their PC's can't do better than Xbox One? Again, not saying you are wrong, only my observations.

Not flaimbating if true.

Example 1: PS4 is more powerful than xone - True statement = not flamebating
Example 2: Many PS4 games have higher resolution and/or higher frame rate than the same game on xone - True statement = not flambating
Example 3: PS4's game line up is better than xone's = subjective statement asserted as true statement = flambating
Example 4: PS4's game line up is better than xone's IMO = subjective statement asserted as personal preference = opinion thus not flamebaiting

The worst fanboys are people like you LogicStomper who disregard any truth unfavourable to our preferred mode of gaming as flaimbaiting.

There needs to be some room for free expression.

Well,

1. Sony stated last year all of their first-party studios are working on PS4 games and seeing many them have yet to reveal their hands, it's safe to assume this year's E3 they will blow us up with announcements...

2. besides multiplatform games, X360 almost looks like a ghost town, really. Meanwhile PS3 still has shit-tons of exclusives launching this year.

3. XB1 lose in sales number within their own hometurf, PS4 hasn't even released yet in Japan.

4. In terms of genre PS4 wins in variety as of now, even when many of their games still yet to be revealed.

In my opinion those who critics MS not only consists of Sony fanboys, general gamers also do that quite often because really, MS has done many questionable move up until now, only those general gamers provide logical explanation instead of mindless bashing.

Microsoft had a sh!tload of momentum coming into this generation from the 360 and they BLEW it... Nobody gives a sh!t about Kinect and whoever mandated its forced inclusion on the xbone should be fired. They should be neck and neck with the ps4 but they shot themselves in the foot. idiots.
OrangePowerz  +   461d ago
Technically they should have been in the lead given how last gen US and UK sales turned out. That they are not that far behind is actually surprising given that they screwed up more than Sony with PS3 launch.

On the other hand I would have still expected them to lead in the US given how US centric the console is instead of being outsold by a console that has only limited supply at retail.

DonkeyWalrus  +   461d ago
PS3 and Xbox 360 total sales are practically the same. The PS3 is only slightly ahead. Just because 360 barely got beat doesn't mean it was a failure, especially when you compare it with the original Xbox sales. 25 million to 80 million... I'd call that momentum.
OrangePowerz  +   461d ago
The fans did not change the console. The pre order numbers did. If they would have had good pre order numbers they would have continued their course. People complained before the reveal when the rumours came out about their DRM and they didn't give a crap of what people where thinking about it.

Will be dificult world wide because MS released in all the major countries where they sell an amount of consoles that is worth to talk about. Sony still has Japan to launch in next week and in many countries they released in they are still sold out in many areas.

Thank you. I always found it frustrating to see apparently intelligent xbox fans criticizing the decisions suddenly believing 'They listened! They care!' after so many different rewordings of 'deal with it', right up to the day the story broke about Amazon pre-orders.

Besides, unless the fans can get them to upgrade the hardware, I don't see anything changing. Don't care what any xboxer says, Graphics Matter. Power Matters. That's why it's exciting to be in a new gen. If not, then people wouldn't have bought these consoles up so quickly. It sure as hell isn't for the wide variety of launch titles. On top of the power gulf, there's the 1st party superiority of sony, the indie library, the more generous online plan, and the better price tag. The brand loyalty to Microsoft, who treat their fans like garbage, is astounding

Microsoft days are numbered unless something drastic happens and I don't think even matching 1080 will do it, just not as good all around sure might be better in certain aspects but you have to tie yourself in with Microsoft I'll just wait for all the good stuff to get patched to ps4 everything else can stay on Xbox one.

Titanfall has lot of flaws that will needs fixing. I play on x box 1, but i find the game boring due to lack of players on the ground. I can see the game has potential by having playing it. But the competitive side of the game is a letdown, really truly.

Players can just shot more bots and gain victory over another team and i truly hate this aspect of the game.

Titans are too easily rewarded also to people who do very little but kill bots.

I doubt hardcore shooter fans or competitive players will play this game much.

PrinceOfAllSaiyans  +   461d ago
MS has some decent exclusives like Halo 5 and Quantum Break this are the only interesting ones. Titanfall will be forgotten come November when Sledgehammer's Next Gen Cod is released. MS has announced most of their exclusives, and the dude leaked everything they have up until 2016, which is just Halo remakes, another Crackdown, and another Forza. Sony hasn't even begun to announce what they have. Keep in mind that PS always has the most exclusives. We still don't know Sony Santa Monica's, Media Molecule's, Guerrilla Games, Sony Japan Studio's, Sony Band's, Quantic Dream's new IP. And plus many great indies in between like Rime, Everybody's Gone into The Rapture, Shadow of the Beast, Daylight, Velocity 2X, Shadow Warrior, and Housemarque's next game possibly Dead nation 2. Don't forget Sony Online games like Planetside 2 and Ever quest Next.

So basically what I'm trying to say is MS fans keep saying PS4 has no exclusives, they said the same at beginning of last gen but look at how that turned out. So far we know of InFamous Second Son, Yakuzu I shin, Driveclub, The Order 1886, MLB 14 The Show, and Uncharted. That alone sounds better than anything MS is getting. So chill with PS4 has no exclusives.
