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.

Thatguy-3101264d ago

Has legs but not strong enough to boost Xbox one sales.

jjonez181264d ago

Forza Horizon didnt cut it.
Forza 6 is the game your looking for.

MrSec841264d ago

FH2 isn't an exclusive, it's available on 360.

mikeslemonade1264d ago

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.

MrSec841264d ago

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.

nicksetzer11264d ago

Guess we will see, but while you wait and hope, I know where I can play it for sure...

Reaper29r1264d ago

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.

TFJWM1264d ago

@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

souldestroyer141264d ago

Mcc is not coming to 360 get your facts straight. And even if it was it's still an Xbox 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.

n4gamingm1264d ago

three words Gears Of War enough said

Pogmathoin1264d ago

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...

DigitalRaptor1257d ago

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?

aviator1891264d ago

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.

Lukebb911264d ago

Gears and state of decay class 4

Genova841264d ago

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.

VegasDawg1264d ago

They are making a gears game and project spark is free.
