GamerBolt: "We have put together a list of 8 Xbox One exclusives headed our way (including those that have already landed) that might actually end up providing a “mega-boost” to their console sales"
No gears or tomb raider? And I hardly think D4 (while an amazing game) will have much impact, sadly same most likely goes for fable legends. Quantum, halo MCC and halo 5 are definitely going to make big changes.
Didn't see Forza Horizon 2 either, it's already proving to have legs while other later releasing racers are dropping off faster.
Has legs but not strong enough to boost Xbox one sales.
Forza Horizon didnt cut it. Forza 6 is the game your looking for.
FH2 isn't an exclusive, it's available on 360.
It's pretty much Halo. Exclusives don't give much of a boost outside of the flagship games like Halo, Mario, Zelda, Final Fantasy and MGS. MGS and Final Fantasy are still PlayStation centric so they will sell more PS4s.
I told you people that XBox One's problem is not about hardware or software its about negative public perception. No matter how many billions M$ throw at it it won't solve the problem. If the negative public perception turns positive then and only then will it be fixed.
If we're defining "mega" as millions upon millions, then only Halo & Gears will count. Keeping it real… Quantum Break will not "mega boost", but sell what you would expect from a new IP on a relatively new console. QB looks great, but is not a mega system seller, just like Sunset Overdrive isn't. Tomb Raider is already known associated with platforms other than Xbox, and is still honestly not as big now as people remember it, which is why Square Enix took Microsoft's exclusivity money.
Rise of the Tomb Raider isn't an exclusive, just like MCC isn't an exclusive, they're both available on the 360. Rise of the Tomb Raider is a timed exclusive and will eventually likely come to PC, PS4 and PS3.
Guess we will see, but while you wait and hope, I know where I can play it for sure...
MrSec84 smh.. come on man. People really will grasp at anything to put down XBox. Just be happy. Rise of the Tomb Raider is exclusive for 1 year. Therefore it's exclusive. FOR A WHOLE YEAR. Just like Destiny on PS4 has that exclusive strike for a year. And that's a long time. Also, not many people care about the last gen consoles anymore, that's why they're not being covered anymore. And if you still do it's under MS's camp and still counts for them. HMCC is not coming to XBox 360. Look it up. I mean seriously what would be the point of that? LOL. Just be happy people that good games are coming to both systems.
@Reaper29r I might of missed it but can you post a link that says that Rise of the Tomb Raider was exclusive for 1 year? OT: I really only see one game that can "mega-boost" sales and that would be Halo 5
Mcc is not coming to 360 get your facts straight. And even if it was it's still an Xbox exclusive
Technically Tomb Raider isnt a full exclusive.
Halo 5 is the only game on that list that has even the slightest chance of "mega-boosting" console sales for the Xbox One.
three words Gears Of War enough said
Please change your name. You do not represent us, maybe change gamers with fanboys. All you need is one of the new IP's to have that 'wow, must get this' factor. Halo, gears, god of War, unchartered all started somewhere...
Except that his statement has absolutely no invalidity in sight. I wonder what makes someone more of a fanboy… stating facts in relation to a silly misguided article, or someone who can't deal with the facts so calls another person a fanboy out of insecurity?
Gears of War should be on there. I imagine they'll apply the same strategy with Gears of War 4- first release a Gears of War collection and then Gears 4.
Gears and state of decay class 4
Sunset Overdrive is the first exclusive xbox 1 game that has sparked my interest. If there's a gears game on the horizon I might be inclined to pick one up. Project Spark seems interesting too.
They are making a gears game and project spark is free.
I don't think any one of those games will provide a mega boost, but combined they will provide gamers with a strong variety of great games that together can win over some customers. Few people buy a console for one game, most by because the entire library is strong.
I THINK Halo MCC, SSO, and Forza Horizon 2 will carry Microsoft though this season. Next year I mean what is there to say... HALO 5!
Serious gamingbolt?! Another flame bait article. Games are games and outside of the diehards, no one cares about what is consider a console mover or not. 3 if my favorite games last gen were Vakyrie Chrinicles, Xenoblade Chronicles and Lost Oddessey and none of them set the sale world on fire while trash like Wii Fit was considered a system seller. Go figure.
Gears of War has my attention.
I just picked up my Xbox one today, I got the Assasins creed unity bundle with Kinect and I picked up sunset overdrive and project spark. I will be hooking it up tomorrow for the first time. anyone with tips and tricks with the system would be helpful.
