GT: Invest your hype where you want, but bet that for the everyman and late adopter, Xbox One bundles will be the far more enticing and numerous option this holiday season.
Id love lottery numbers from the writer.
When both perform really well your bound to have different opinions.
Again another ignore-rant, article from an Xbox reputation Manager. Do all games really need to have a grand E3 announcement? Come on, really now. Clearly he has no understanding of how the PlayStation Nation do biznez. LoL! MS should hire smarter managers not narrow minded one track mind ones. Sony and its partners announced its games on a regular basis every month the whole year round and the PlayStation Nation know these games whether AAA, Midsize, or Indie; Western or Japanese; 1st Party, 2nd Party or 3rd Party..... all by heart. E3 is just for formality and celebration. Until Dawn The Talos Principle Planetside 2 Everybody's Gone to the Rapture Tearaway Unfolded GOW3 Remaster Uncharted The Nathan Drake Collection Astebreed Godzilla JStars Victory Dragon Quest Heroes FFXIV Heavensward Onechanbara Z2 Persona 5 Disgaea 5 Sword Art Online Lost Song Re: Hollow Fragment Dragon's Dogma Online and the great list of 3rd Party games with exclusive to PlayStation content. And xboxers downplay Japanese pS4 exclusive games not knowing the fact that they wont be localized if there is no demand for these games. Tomb Raider vs Nathan Drake Collection? Good Luck SE and MS. You picked the wrong timing.
Everyone is so closed minded to the point that just because it wasn't announced at E3 means it's not coming this fall lol There's plenty of games that are coming out year round for only the PS4. And that's the way I prefer them myself, ALL YEAR. Just because it doesn't let you play with a gun in your hand or it's not a yearly racing game doesn't mean that Playstation doesn't have anything in store this "Holiday" or should I say "the last 3 months of the year". And in regards to BC with Xbox 360. I think it was a perfect hit and MS has it so that people can play old stuff until the Holiday. It really makes good sense and is an awesome feature on their part.
yup. If you actually look at the list of games coming out for PS4, there is way more than the competition. But I think when they say "holiday line up" they mean big sequels.
Plus people tend to forget that all the PS4 games that have come out the first half of this year will get nice discounts around the holidays so if you get a PS4 around then, you'll also be able to stock up on awesome games (Drive Club and Bloodborne!!)
I don't think Microsoft have won the holiday at all. Out of all the games coming in the fall Halo will be the only one to make an huge impact for the Xbox One. There are far to many huge third party games coming at the end of this year which, like the ones before them, helped Microsoft's competitior far more than Microsoft. Microsoft are overloading the wrong part of the year. They should move Tomb Raider and Fable legends to the early part of next year. They are not going to get the coverage with Fallout, Battlefront, COD, Just Cause being released
MS wins the holiday but Sony wins the year. As a PS4 owner I'll won't be able to play everything coming out later this year on day one, so I really don't see the problem. Plenty of games to choose from.
I think a lot of people are missing the point. I will be getting a PS4 and I will eventually play Bloodborne, but I am not buying another console until there is an undeniable reason to and that reason is Uncharted 4. It's not that there aren't great games coming to both consoles this year and that everyone won't have great games to play, but you and I and many others have all ready chosen our consoles of choice as early adopters. We all know that when you walk into your local video game store or Best Buy all the hype and the advertising is for the big AAA titles (third and first party alike). Those who have waited until now to make a choice and those who are just getting into video games are going to see all the third party marketing, but also all the "only on Xbox One" from all the first party exclusives. This plus true backwards compatibility and it's going to be harder at least this year for Sony to win that fight. There are GREAT games coming to the PS4 this year no doubt but only the informed will know about them.
Halo 5 Forza 6 Tomb Raider Fable Legends.... Looks like a good holiday for Microsofts console.
Yes thanks ms Santa will spray his gifts all over me.
the most disturbing comment of the day goes to... polow
I would say 3rd party games when the year and holiday, and seeing how ps4 has double the install base....yeaa
Most casual gamers don't even know what an exclusive game is. They game for the big blockbuster 3rd party games. Readers of N4g cant really relate to this because we are more involved with news than the average consumer. Although I do agree that Halo is a beast of an exclusive that will sell, and move systems. Always has and always will. I think it will be a very close holiday. Sony will still remain on top regardless.
It s crazy how some people only game in the holidays.
yup. everyone knows only the holidays count for having games /s
According to some, gaming is only relevant during the holidays.
