This is something that is really annoying me in threads and comment sections.
"...AAA exclusives Games announced
Ryse vs Killzone:SF
Forza vs #Driveclub (an excuse for a racing game)
Dead Rising 3 vs What ever dafaq Knack is
Sunset Overdrive vs The Order: 1886
Halo 5 vs...............?
Titanfall vs Infamous?
Black Tusk new IP vs..................?
Project Spark vs.................?
Fable: Legends vs................?
The Xbox One clearly has the better line-up, most of Sony's studios like ND, Polyphony, SSM have just released games and the heavy hitters will only arrive 2-3 years from now...”
This^^^ drives me mad.
This is not knocking the Xbox One's fairly stellar line-up but common Sony's studios have not been sitting on their asses for the last few years. Sony has the largest internal development team(by employee number) of the "Big 3". Yes Microsoft DOES have more studios however most of them are casual focused, unproven and far smaller.
Sony can thank Microsoft for giving them an easy time. Microsofts DRM debacle after the Xbox Event caused them to blow 85% of their load announcing some games that are only coming out Q4 2014 and Q1 2015 at this years E3. This was a last ditch attempt to sell their DRM scheme to the gaming public and it failed....miserably. Sony has enough momentum to sell every single PS4 through till March next year, they according to insiders on Neogaf by the name FamousMortimer stated in a thread BEFORE Gamescom that the big guns are being held back. Sony is holding back bombs for when MS has none. While MS is still talking about Sunset Overdrive and Halo 5 Sony will be dropping massive bombs. Don't expect massive announcements at TGS but expect the bombs to start dropping from the VGA's onwards. Some of these "bombs" according to Neogaf mod-verified insider by the name of Verendus include:
5 Major 3rd Party exclusives, 2 from Sega and 1 MASSIVE Western exclusive, Demon Souls 2 (title change).
To save myself the time here is a list I posted on 1st and 2nd party studios rumored titles. http://forums.n4g.com/What-...
Sony's strategy is smart. I don't know about you but Im starting to get sick of Watchdogs, it was announced ages ago and my interest has waned significantly. This could also effect some of MS's announced titles. Also MS has announced games that will detract from the launch exclusives people are to busy thinking about Halo 5 instead of being focused on launch titles. Sony's launch is laser focussed. Also how many of these launch exclusive games stand a chance against against Gran Turismo 6, GTA 5, Cod: Ghosts, Watch_Dogs, Battlefield 4, NFS: Rivals. If Sony sent to many AAA exclusives out at launch they would be doomed for financial failure.
So to recap...don't worry the games will come and boy when they come everyone will know about it.
Edit: The PS4’s launch line-up is amazing, with PS+ you get so many free games Day 1 like Resogun, Outlast and Drive-Club: PS+Edition and lets not forget the countless F2P games as well as Strong 3rd party support.
