Stu at Sushimonster85 writes 'Remember that first year of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One? It was pretty barren, those of us who chose to adopt early (guilty) bore the brunt of the uncertainty among game developers/publishers at the time Of course, flash-forward to today and the very notion that there things were so uncertain at one point seems crazy. Both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are outpacing the PS3 and Xbox 360, and cross-gen release consistently sells better on the newer consoles. Now we’re through those difficult drought days we even have games starting to come out, if anything, there’s almost too many to chose from over these next three and a half months.
When I tried to form a shortlist of games I (ideally) want to pick up on release day, as opposed to those I could probably wait for. I failed miserably. This ‘shortlist’ is nine games long. NINE GAMES. Even if I had the financial means to keep up, there wouldn’t be enough time to get through them all.'
