well Sony has more exclusives released in 2014, and more exclusives yet to release in 2014.

and that is only counting retail games not just indies.

some exclusives will appeal more to some than others, but as far as quantity and variety Sony have the advantage.

@Monday Show me the list and leave out the timed indies and F2P games.

No fantasy line ups or what you think is soon to come only announced AAA exclusives.

I'm curious to see.

@NewMonday, I'll take Driveclub and there will be a small niche market for LBP3, but how well do you expect those other 3 games to sell I will ask you?

Guilty Gear also has a placeholder release date of December 31st, so no guarantee that releases this year.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   186d ago | Well said
@Monday Why would I spin?

btw you forgot to add, UC4 remaster Bloodborne and UC4 so that's 8.

This year is Halo MCC, FH2 and SSOD, Project Spark full release

next year.

next year is. Halo 5, Fable Legends, Scale Bound, Phantom Dust and Quantum Break and Crack Down. Excluded Gears (even if we do know its coming.

So that's 10 I even excluded D4, Phantasia, and Dance Central and just focused on hardcore titles.

You said:

"well Sony has more exclusives released in 2014, and more exclusives yet to release in 2014."

unless you can fill me in on other AAA's Sony is releasing this year what you ultimately stated was wrong.

MS by a small margin MS has more even if you add in niche titles like Samurai Warriors and Guilty Gear.

No Spin just facts.

The Last of Us is a big win for Sony because so many gamers who jumped ship from 360 to PS4 are willing to give it a try. no worry PS4 will have a very strong holiday, add to that a few extra games at Gamescom.

A) more exclusives don't mean better exclusives

B) x1 has:

project spark
fable legends
quantum break
sunset overdrive
fantasia: music evolved
Halo collection
D4
titanfall (already out)
Horizons 2
crackdown
scalebound

Those are or are going to be pretty strong titles to compete with, and i left out the indies - some of which are going to be amazing (ori especially)

ps4 certainly has some very impressive or beautiful titles coming out in 2015 but the xbox is bringing stuff that looks more fun/interesting/novel in my opinion and sooner.

I Love it AngelicDiamond first sets the rules then claims victory. So, tell me, what exactly is an Indie? What do you consider AAA? You mention Scalebound and Phantom Dust as AAA, neither of which is AAA in my book. The only thing we saw was CGI and even that wasn't AAA quality, not by a long shot. Then you mention a game that has not even been announced (Gears of War 4), I mean come on man how biased can you get? By the way, Im just curious where you draw the line for "indie" exactly. I mean, is Helldivers an indie? because thats coming out this year. Then, you exclude Free to Play, and Im not sure why those can't be considered games, especially when they look as good as Deep Down, also coming this year. Planet side 2? not good enough huh, or is it because its also on PC? but I guess that would take a bunch of your games out as well now wouldn't it?
"FACT" is, Sony has more exclusives, more games, whether that be "indies" included, or not, and more AAA's announced, and more studio's with unannounced projects. That, is fact, if fact is really what you are after.

But why all the game naming? Don't take my word (or for that matter PR's word) go look it up yourself. Don't regurgitate what you were told by your favorite console maker, go check out a list of all games releasing. PS4 has more in every category. we are talking about not even close.

@Angelicice oh how you are reaching and moving goal posts. Raeching by excluding f2p games which are great games and in Planetside 2s case better than p2p games. Now when you have the games presented to you, you move goal posts with AAA talk like these games somehow aren't good ... The fact is PS4 has more games to play this year than Xbox One, whether you think one or the other is better is sujective.

The Last of Us
Samurai Wariors 4

You THINK they have more games cause of all their indies and f2ps, but you forgot about ID@Xbox. You forgot about all the Japanese X1 exclusives too, yet mention the ones for PS4.

There's no doubt X1 dominates 2014 and 2015 with AAAs, but these loyalists who claim PS4 has more games cause of the indies and obscure Japanese games need to get updated, cause now X1 dominates in ALL aspects of gaming, not just AAA.

Not sure about the claims made in this article. MSFT has a history of revealing the year's lineup during and after each E3. Sony's claims are always fluffed due to them announcing games at E3 two to three years in advance(lots of cancellations and delays) Sony uses trickery to garner hype. Even the known games are bigger on Xb1.

Off topic... Are games starting to have PC-like options? http://www.reddit.com/r/xbo...

Wonder if PS4 will ever get that Bird dog dragon game back from the PS3 days a few years ago(white dog bird game).

I'd be surprised if half of PS4's supposed 2015 AAA releases make 2015

I love how people try to win arguments on this site.

I love that no mans sky doesn't count either because it might be coming to X1 sooner or later, but plants vs zombies was ok to use as ammo in earlier games comparisons...

The way X1 fans win the games argument is by setting strict rules apparently...

@AngelicIceDiamond: Wow, you really do have some strict limitations on what is what.

Do the games have to be bathed in recently blessed water under a blue moon as well?

***Btw indies weren't the topic of discussion back then especially on consoles. Console gamers such as us never cared for indies until over a year ago. ***

Interesting considering Indie games have been a big thing for ages and seeing them come to consoles somehow lessens them now?

I think anyone who discounts Indie games in general is attempting to change history as far as their place in the Industry. I mean, I guess VVVVVV and Machinarium of 2009 didn't win any Indie GotY awards or anything. I mean, why would they, no one cares about Indies.

***I never moved anything, nothing at all I just went by what this site originally considered a "win" Not me.***

@Soap

There is no goal post moving at all. Hasn't the talk always been AAA exclusives?

Back in 2011 and 2012 when MS was lacking AAA's or new ips they were always strong in the Arcade downloads thanks mainly to Summer Arcade. I remember ppl saying "don't count XBL arcade because those don't matter, its AAA that mattered" Despite the fact that XBL Arcade had strong downloads and was very successful. And were worthy of counting them as part of a great line up.

But most of you probably have amnesia and forgotten I sure as hell didn't.

So in terms of goals posting I never changed it, its this site. I tried adding in arcade a while back but nope apparently it wasn't "allowed" according to this site because they weren't true exclusives retail arcade didn't count. Funny enough they started counting as soon as The Journey was announced ironically enough. So now are we resting the goal post now?

Btw indies weren't the topic of discussion back then especially on consoles. Console gamers such as us never cared for indies until over a year ago.

I never moved anything, nothing at all I just went by what this site originally considered a "win" Not me.

Point is nobody knows what to count. Some count indies some don't, some count casual others don't. Everyone sets the goal post to suit them which makes the debate completely irrelevant and super subjective.

@Monday Not really because even then MS still has more AAA's, marginally.

Most exclusives for PS4 will come in 2016... until this time gamers can enjoy more indigames and multiplatts with the inferior gamepad (8 hours battery life) + p2p multiplayer with lags i dont even mention that the PS4 is as lood as my microwave.

At around the same time frame as arcade having good indies, PlayStation was also getting amazing indies. PS3 had such good indies many people gave them game of the year awards... I don't know of any exclusive XBL arcade games that got such attention and respect as PS3's indies.

Not all PS3 fans disregarded Indies, in fact, I am really skeptical that ANY ever have with how many award winning, quality indies the PS3 has had.

I want to say let the past be the past to angelicice but that will more than likely result in the word fanboy getting tossed around because theres a war going on and its an eye for an eye...So i'm over it..

Didn't think so. If the last gen was anything to go buy with exclusives, PS3 owners did not support the exclusives for their system as well as 360 owners.
sonarus  +   185d ago
Lets not talk out of our asses. Setting parameters like indy or timed exclusive or console exclusive. At the end of the day exclusive or not it doesn't matter. Most especially to me that have already decided to purchase my console because regardless i will be playing the games that come out on that system and nothing else unless i own both. So exclusive or multiplatform it makes no difference to me

This is a list of Xbox One games currently planned for release either at retail or via download.
There are currently 219 games on this list.
Exclusive = 33
Microsoft exclusive = 14
Console exclusive or timed = 18/3
Multiplatform = 159
Playable = 45 available to purchase (9 of these are exclusive to Xbox One)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...

There are currently 268 games on this list (16 of which have been confirmed as free-to-play).
Exclusive = 26 (1 of these are free-to-play)
Sony Exclusive = 22
Console exclusive and/or timed = 76/3 (8 of these are free-to-play)
Multiplatform = 141 (3 of these are free-to-play)
Playable = 82 available to purchase (10 of these are exclusive to PS4)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...

xbox one does have more exclusives as we can see. 7 more to be exact. However Sony has by far more console exclusives

Very old list but this puts into perspective how much MS is going to have to keep bringing those big guns to keep up. List is mainly because you included unannounced games. Note that devs with either PS3 games from last year and launch games are all either now working on DLC for existing games and/or now working on PS4. Also helps if you own a PS4 & Vita to appreciate this list to the fullest.

That's before all the indies PS4 is getting from third party indie devs and free2plays.

LBP3 will sell decently unless its sales are greatly affected by multiplats, little big planet 1 sold 5+ million
and little big planet 2 sold 3+ million, its safe to say little big planet 3 will sell decently or heck it might turn out to be the best selling LBP to date.

@angelicICEDiamond
theres no garrantee or confirmation that scalebound,crackdown or phantom dust will release in 2015, all they showed was cgi trailers.
SpideySpeakz  +   186d ago
And we've only seen actual gameplay from 2 of those games.
There's really no telling any of those games with be good.
Plus, we have to put in the consideration that most of games will be downgraded sub 1080p below 30f because of the Bone's inferior specs, and those inferior specs can compromise gameplay most likely.
Jaqen_Hghar  +   186d ago
2014 is a dead heat. We've had Infamous and Titanfall cancel out and LoU remastered and Halo collection balance out. LBP3 and Sunset balance. Driveclub and Forza cancel out. the tiebreaker then goes to 3rd party or indies and PS4 has the advantage on both of those unless you REALLY need that month early COD content lol. A man doesn't forget Planetside 2 either though he's sure you don't count indies or think 720p is the same as 1080p or a more stable framerate isn't noticeable or something to try to even it out.

As for 2015 there's already the Order, Bloodborne, Uncharted, Deep Down, Uncharted, Ratchet and Grim remastered, Magicka 2, Let it Die, and many more unannounced ones (remember they just surprised us with a november LBP at E3 so they've shown they can announce and release less than a year away)

Again 3rd party games (whether through content or stability and resolution), indies, and given away games all favor PS4 as well.

A man happens to like Infamous more. A man enjoys SP more than MP and only keeps a game if it has a great SP which he can go back and enjoy. MP always fizzles out in enjoyment and it never really gets fun again.

Ok there is no way that LoU and Hal: The Master Chief Collection is going to balance out. LoU is one game and the Master Chief Collection is four games, and also the Halo games are better.

FriedGoat  +   185d ago
The last of us is one of the best games I've played in a long time. It may not balance out because it is better.

Halo 3 though, I do love halo 3.....
Jaqen_Hghar  +   185d ago
To all of you disagreeing about LoU being less value than MCC. Let's not forget that a lot of those games are REALLY old. Sony has done 3 game collections for $40 (Jak and Ratchet and Sly). They were ALL 1080p 60fps. Same thing with MCC except they're charging $60 so basically $20 for the Halo 4 in addition to the really old games just like Sony's collections on PS3. LoU is more recent. The game itself is still $30. The SP DLC alone is $15. So that's already $45 of content in a $50 package. You're paying $5 for 1080p, 60fps, better controller, and a more enjoyable online experience. Again look at the PS3 collections. They're ALL 1080p 60fps and have 2 or 3 games in them for $40.

Just like most (or almost all) of PS4's "exclusive" indies and F2P games are on the PC.
... and two of the biggest PS4 "exclusives" for this year, TLOU and LBP3, are (or will be) on the PS3.

I think both Microsoft and Sony have a solid line-up for 2014 (slight edge to Microsoft), but fanboys should be careful in what they claim to be their console of choice exclusive. To be a exclusive, it means it can only be played on one gaming platform.

You sir are misinformed.

If you actually look at the time of year they are comparing the sales to...

for instance. April 2014 Xbox One's 115,000 monthly sales is lower than any April performance by the 360.

That means, the Xbox hasn't sold that bad since the Original Xbox was on sale.

That is the best game collection since The Orange Box! Quantum Break and Phantom Dust I am looking forward to as well.

PS4 ya already know! Uncharted 4, Bloodborne, The Order 1886, and more. But what I really want is Battlefront PS4 version!
amazinglover  +   186d ago
I think both Sony and Xbox have solid exclusives this year, I give the sleight edge to MS mainly for Sunset Overdrive and Halo MCC. I think MS decided to focus on this years games more to help gain the ground they lost on Sony this year in sales and Sony choose to focus on 2015 since they are ahead and can afford to focus on the future since they are number 1 right now.
wsoutlaw87  +   186d ago
come on guys none of the exclusives are really that interesting this year. The best two exclusives infamous and titan fall are already out. The only things im really looking at are the remastered last of us but not sure id rebuy it, and deep down. Id like to see h1z1 out this year but doesnt look likely. Theres some great multiplats and at the start of next year we get witcher, bloodborne, and the order so it will be great.

People with a ps4 myself included wont play that crap till its free on plus. Lol if your exclusives majority are indies you need to shhhhhhhh. When its fall and im playing forza horizon 2, sunset od, smash brothers, hyrule warriors (killing that dynasty shi*),bayonetta 2, i could go on. What will you be doing on ps4 i cant do somewhere else? And who is this guy that can predict the future? Really?

Yeah I think MS has 2015 in its bag as well. I mean your talking about there biggest franchises coming out in 2015 in Halo 5 and Gears 4 and history shows those games are unmatched compared to its opposition. Sony already used 3 of there stable franchises in Killzone, Infamous and GT where as MS used 1 in Forza.

Sony better have something big on its way apart from Uncharted because MS are bringing 4 stable franchises in 2015.
JMyers  +   185d ago
People seem to forget that there are two other BIG shows this year... Yes Gamescom and TGS, where Sony also make announcments. Seems like everyone is doing List Wars... Here are the games that you can only find on Sony's Console...

Killzone: SF
Infamous: SS
Knack
Little Big Planet 3
Drive Club
Contrast
FFIV
TLOU
MLB the Show

2015 and Beyond:
The Order 1886
BloodBorne
Shadow of the Beast
Everybody's Gone to the Rapture
RIME
UC4
Without Memory

SSM New IP
Bend IP
GG New IP
Quantic Dream New IP
MM New IP
H1Z1

That's from the ones I remember... How has MS got more games incoming? No third exclusives, F2P or small Indies in that list. Some PC games yes... but you people are counting Titan Fall.

In terms of GAMES... which Indies are, and many top quality... Don't Starve, Transistor, No Man's Sky, Velocity 2X, Resogun and SO MUCH more.

Fable legends looks so bad as a fable game,

Crackdown 3 all I can say is Crackdown 2 was bad

Phantom Dust cult classic to about 4 people not even half the critics even remember that game.

Scalebound CGI trailer doesn't give much away.

Halo 5 even the creators jumped ship, and 4 didn't do to well and maybe it will be a good game.

Quantum Break looks good but don't bet on it coming out next year, it took them years to get Alan wake out the door.

Gears Of War will be 2015/2016 release they've been working on it for just over 3months so they won't even be out of story boards yet.

there isn't much coming for Xbox One either so don't know what your talking about.

Sony have

Japan Studio's working on a game

Polphony Digital working on GT7

Naughty Dog have Uncharted and an Unannounced game

Sony Santa Monica are still to announce anything

Sony Bend are working on a big title

Sucker Punch will be working on a new game

Guerrilla games have a new ip

Media Molecule are yet to show there game

Quantic Dream are doing something big,

I mean honestly Sony do have the better variety in first party games, and I don't see how Xbox One has won 2014, for 1 it isn't over yet, and 2 they haven't even got that great games anyway, it's about a draw this year, PS4 has just got plants vs zombies garden warefare and that was mean to be an exclusive to X1
Hayabusa 117  +   185d ago

All I need for 2014 and 2015 is HALO MCC you keep your LBP and Driveclubs and indies whatever ps4 is offering , Im not going to miss anything.
Hayabusa 117  +   185d ago
The Halo MCC wins it hands down for me this year, but I can understand that some people just don't care about Halo.

Of course the Xbox One also has Titanfall, I think it's pretty strong for the Xbox this year in terms of exclusives: even though Titanfall is tab disappointing for me and Halo MCC IS technically a remake.

Infamous Second Son doesn't count to me 'cose it poo, and The Last of Us remastered doesn't interest me either: if I'm gona play a remake, I'd rather play the 10 year old remake than the one that came out last year and still looks freakin' gorgeous anyway. BUT PS4 still has LBP3 and Drive Club.

Not interested in Drive Club myself, but I guess I'm gona have to be objective and say LBP3, Drive Club and TLOU Remastered vs Halo MCC and Titanfall: yep, pS4 wins from a consumer standpoint (unless LBP3 turns out to be poo as well). But from a personal prespective I'm still giving it to XBox One for the MCC.

Yes, Halo is burned out at this point, which is why I'd rather have updated versions of the original classics than a new Halo game.

Thankfully I own both consoles, so I guess I win the "console war" :D

Here are a couple of lists that show a list of games that are and will be available on both Xbox One and Playstation 4. To make it simple, look at the chart and see where it sees Exclusive. If the game reads "console", then that means it will be available on the console only and other platforms like PC. If the game reads "Yes", then it is a pure exclusive on the console only. If it reads "Sony" or "Microsoft", then the game is available on their platforms only. For the naysayers of it being a Wikipedia page, this isn't high school where your teacher can dismiss Wikipedia as a source. There are collective sources at the bottom of both pages to show that the games will be or are available for the consoles. Calculate them yourselves and see what's there.

christocolus  +   186d ago
What possible 2016 titles? Gears was never even shown.MS focus at E3 was on the 2014 titles besides phil says he is already playing scalebound and we know crackdown was used in a cloud tech demo some months ago,which means both games could already be far into development. They could be 2015 titles. Phil never gave a release time frame and see what was done with forza horizon2, that game is going to launch just 5 months after it was officially revealed and don't be too quick to shove lXp&platform next aside,they are new studios who have been hiring a lot of late. no one knows what they are working on,Phil is the new boss&there is less focus on kinect games now.

Truth is we have no idea what the entire lineup of games will be next year. MS deliberately focused on their line up fopr this year at E3. Sony might have a lot planned for next year but so does MS.
Kayant  +   186d ago
"What possible 2016 titles?" The ones I mentioned.Crackdown and Scalebound
Seeing how ntrkl leaks were spot on for Forza Horizon 2 and Sunset Overdrive, Halo MCC although Quantum break was wrong but he got more things right than wrong when it comes to game announcements. MS also said the showcase was for 2015 titles and beyond.

That's great Xbox has Halo MCC, and the full release of Project Spark. So they both have 1 remake and one editor game.

But its all subjective.

Btw that article was talking about indies. Sony had higher rated indies than MS. Which is nice but nothing truly beats out AAA high rated games. That's what the masses pay attention to the most.

The Killer line ups are SSOD and FH2 and the other 2 games I mentioned. So yes MS does have some killer line ups to look forward to this holiday.

I love how this article (and pretty much all the comments in here for that matter) make it a contest in terms of exclusive games between the Xbox One and PS4, while completely ignoring the Wii U.

You know, Nintendo's little console, which has, for this year:

- Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze (already released to great reception)
- Mario Kart 8 (already released to great reception)
- Hyrule Warriors
- Smash Bros
- Bayonetta 2 (with the first one included for free!)
- Captain Toad's Treasure Tracker

And, for 2015:

- Xenoblade Chronicles X
- Zelda U
- Splatoon
- Yoshi's Wooly World
- Kirby and the Rainbow Curse
- Mario Maker

There's also Devil's Third, which as far as I know, still doesn't have a release date.

I don't know about you guys... but to me, it looks like Nintendo is VERY worthy of consideration in this discussion here. Why isn't it being mentioned?

2014 is 2014 and that part of the article is what it is.

But, we are a long way from 2015. Game development can cause delays to any of the titles announced for 2015.

Also, MS tends to keep more announcements in the current year then in future years. E3 2015 will decide who has the best lineup for 2015... All I have to say to people that talk about future years is...

"Remember The Last Guardian and The Agent"...

Subjective. There is not a single year , past or games announced, where I would choose an Xbox exclusive line up over PlayStation's. That's my opinion.

gamerfan0909  +   186d ago
How do you know PS4 has the exclusive advantage next year and beyond? This is pure guessing at best. Even if one brand has more exclusives than another brand that doesn't mean those games are better. This is all preference.
DigitalRaptor  +   186d ago
How do we know?

Most of Microsoft's studios have shown their cards either at launch or holiday 2014 and already announced for 2015. Scalebound, Phantom Dust and Crackdown are clearly 2016 releases, that MS are disguising as games for 2015, to give the impression that they have more games coming than the competition. They clearly wanted to deliver a certain message a E3.

The only exclusives coming out in 2015 are Quantum Break, Fable Legends and Halo 5, and those are all in the second half of 2015.

Meanwhile most of Sony's studios have barely hinted at what they're working on, while every single one of them are working on games for PS4, they have the most to show, and most of them will be ready to unveil games both this year and early next year in time for a 2015 release, perhaps early 2016.

Early 2015, PS4 has 3 AAA exclusives alone: Bloodborne, The Order: 1886 and Ratchet & Clank Redux. There's also the obligatory MLB 15: The Show. Nothing has even been announced for mid-late 2015, in terms of AAA development other than Uncharted 4.

LittleBigPlanet 3 came out of nowhere, from a smaller dev in conjunction with XDEV, so not only can that keep happening from second-party devs, but Sony has a whole arsenal of unannounced AAA games that are likely to see 2015 releases, as well as what we already know.

Then Sony has some high-end promising looking indies that spank anything MS has on its plate in terms of indie development: RiME, Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, No Man's Sky, SOMA, ABZU, Shadow of the Beast, and the list goes on.

These "BIG" indies (and yes, they are all hugely ambitious for indie devs), are things MS cannot counter with their own indies. Unless Sony has some kind of chronic delays in 2015, the claim is looking to be pretty accurate.

So... you're saying that most of the stuff Microsoft announced at this year's E3 are "clearly 2016 releases"... but then you claim that Sony has several just announced games AND EVEN unnanounced PS4 games set for a 2015 - early 2016 release?

Are you serious, son?

Yeah, that sounds like a completely unbiased opinion right there. *cough*

>_>

One game out of your list is good.

MLB The Show, TLoU and SS blow anything on One out of the water.

Just stop

... and this is why I must convince myself to skip the PS4 this year because no games appeal to me yet.

I would take all these PS3 games over those
KH2.5
FFX/X-2 HD
Tales of Symphonia
Tales of Xillia 2
Drakengard 3

The only PS4 game that released this year that I am slightly interested in is Infamous but I am usually not a fan of the genre and really did not care for the original so waiting is no problem

Again, a shitty article that doesn't know the meaning of exclusive.

Sunset & Kinect games VS Driveclub & Infamous (and MLB). That is all. Everything else is port, cross gen etc. Not exclusive. PS4 or XO exclusive = Only on X0 or only on PS4. It's so simple to understand...

Halo 2 anniversary alone has me more excited than any other upcoming 2014/2015 game regardless of console.
LAWSON72  +   186d ago
By time this comes out it will be 1 year and a half since I played Halo and as of now I am dying to finally get back and play it. Sure for some that is nothing but I have been a fairly regular Halo gamer since 2007. Hopefully Destiny will keep me occupied til then

Looks like xbox has 2014 and 2015 . Sony has been delaying and pushing back games since last gen. But I hope sony games come because I'm planning on getting a ps4 next year.

Line up by order of "must have" exclusive games for me:
X1
Wii U
PS4

It's all opinion, no one will ever end this argument, but in my opinion...no matter how great PS has been in the past...NOW they just aren't bringing it with quality titles. I hope that changes. Right now the only games on PS4 that have me legit excited are No Man's Sky (which isn't technically an exclusive, but as for now...) and Uncharted 4. I will no doubt get Bloodbourne and Order as they both have promise, but if I didn't have a PS4, I wouldn't have missed them with all the other games going on at the same time. Sorry, it's just how I feel. X1 is by far my favorite console right now, then Wii U has MK8 and Mario World 3D which I have enjoyed more than any PS4 exclusive to date, plus with Hyrule Warriors/Zelda Wii U/Star Fox coming...there are more "must haves" on their list right now. My PS4 is really just an "infamous box" waiting to become an "Uncharted 4 box". I don't have PS+ anymore so all online games for me are on X1, and all multiplats for me are X1 cause I like the controller and UI (and network) better...not to mention I like collecting my achievements all in one spot...and so far minor res differences haven't made a big enough deal.

(and to my stalker that keeps claiming I don't have a PS4, I cancelled my PS+ but my screen name is xsevewordsx ..don't try to add me...and my X1 gamertag is Sevenwords...now please stop crying just cause someone has a different opinion than you).

THIS is exactly why it's good to have all the consoles (which BTW my PS4 disc drive broke and I just got it back two days ago...if I'm strictly a fanboy, why haven't I been crying about that all this time?) When consoles go through droughts, you just play on the other ones...it rotates. Right now Sony's game catalog just isn't impressive to me at all...stop trying to force it down my throat.

At this rate PS4 will have 2023 on lock down until MS announces the next Xbox.

I am not sure about that
IMO MS will probably win for me this year however next year is kind of up in the air.

They both got an exclusive JP dev that are just both epic, one can capture an atmosphere while the other can make such creative and fun games. They both got the big dogs coming, Uncharted 4 and Halo 5, and the two new big IPs Quantum Break and The Order. It will surely be an interesting year that is why I will get a PS4 Q1 or Q2 next year.

I honestly think Wii U will win the exclusive game with SSB, Hyrule Warriors and Bayonetta 2 and next year they are to have Zelda, Star Fox (?), X, Yoshi Wooly World, Splatoon, Mario Maker, and Devils Third so they will probably have a great year in 2015

At the end of the day it all comes down to taste because as far as lineups are concerned they are pretty balanced with new IPs, indies and returning franchises. Every gamer has something to be excited about and if you ask me the best experience will always be being a multiplat gamer.

I usually go by a company's track record...I know who had the best games the last gen...And I also know who abandoned their console...And I know who has had to back track...add this...take away that...just to try and become more then a North American niche product this gen...So I know who I will trust...

...And I know people with one bubble 99% of the time are trolls.

Plus the people with lots are usually fanboys for something, fairness doesn't get you kudos anymore.

As a gamer, the fanboys embarrass me.

People with one bubble are usually Xbox fans who talk the same way Sony fans do but because this is n4g they get reported down to one bubble
deafdani  +   185d ago
The bubble system really isn't worth anything. You shouldn't put too much faith on the amount of bubbles a user has. This site's community and moderators report and mark down comments unfairly all the time.

I have 2155 comments on this website. Most of them are (in my opinion) well written and insightful. However, I'm down to 4 bubbles because I got marked down for "bad language" once for saying f*ck something (and I was talking about some pretty bad business practice that went against consumers or something along these lines).

Yet I once saw a pretty damn homophobic article get featured in here, and a lot of comments were pretty homophobic as well, and got tons of agrees... explain to me how that kind of content is encouraged, but you get your voice bubbled down if you say a swearword?

Yup, the bubble system is really a joke here.
