Xbox One and PS4 launch titles show contrasting philosophies

Both Microsoft and Sony have announced the launch-day titles for their respective consoles, and it’s quite interesting to see just how divergent both the consoles are, from both a philosophical standpoint as well as a demographic one.

The order would be a cool van helsing type of game. I know it will be good because sony santa monica is working on it. they made the beck hack and slash game ever. (god of war series) it would be goddamn interesting to see them expand into a new genre.

theWB272272d ago

The only thing is Sony Santa Monica isn't making the's Ready at Dawn's game. Kind of have to go off the quality of the Portable GOW's and not the full fledged PS3 titles.

The only other console titles they've done is Okami on the Wii and a port of a PSP GOW to PS3.

ABeastNamedTariq2272d ago

GOW:COO/GOS were fantastic. And this game, visually, looks like CGI. I think they got this.

ziggurcat2272d ago

i'm pretty sure they worked on all of the PSP GOW games as well (as in the proper PSP games, not ports to PS3).

HammadTheBeast2272d ago

The portable GoW games were some of the best games on the system, so I don't have many doubts.

PS4 line up is way bigger better then x1
Killzone SF, knack drive club, infamoaus, the order final Fantasy XIV RRP Deep Down
that's 7 AAA+ titles
then u get mid-budget like : Shadow of the beast, rime, Every1 going to tthe rapture, drive hill

then a lot more indie titles

finally the biggest F2 P : planetside2, DC, war thunder, warframe and black light R

and a lot more coming soon from ND, SSM, SEJ ..etc

stop the BS x1 line up has nothing on the PS4 line up

nukeitall2272d ago

What I see is MS has tons more AAA game, while Sony is focusing on indie games.

That isn't a surprise, Sony is strapped for cash and indies are a dime a dosen!

black0o2272d ago

please can u name them all .. and KI, project spark, dragon C, D2, sport rival, and fight within are not AAA just FYI

Marked2272d ago


LOL "strapped for cash" really???

How many studios does sony own? AKA...if they arent producing titles they are losing money. Simple business philosophy reveals you are a numb skull.

Difference Between sony and MS. Sony is willing to put its money where its mouth is. MS has commitment issues ;-* kind of like wallmart leasing all of there stores so they can close and run on a location without a true investment.

arbitor3652272d ago

forza 5, ryse, and killer instinct are just RIDDLED with DLC and microtransactions. even the exclusives reflect microsoft's greed

kewlkat0072272d ago (Edited 2272d ago )

The title states "Xbox One and PS4 launch titles" yet you only whine about XboxOne games you'll never own.

I'll be getting Ryse and KI. The Ps4 actually have some interesting Indie games at start.


HammadTheBeast2272d ago

I'm more excited for Killzone Shadow fall, the first primarily next-gen exclusive shooter.

Computersaysno2272d ago

I'm just here for that picture. Xbone looks massive sat next to PS4 lol

ABeastNamedTariq2272d ago


Holy crap, it looks huge compared to the PS4! Gosh.

(To clarify: I'm not saying that's good or bad, just... Gosh.)

Eddie201012272d ago (Edited 2272d ago )

Not to mention that Xbox One has an external power brick, maybe they hid the cloud in the box too.

The market for AAA-only titles does not exist.

Resogun looks awesome.

Minecraft? I'll take it.


Everybody's Gone To The Rapture -> can't wait to see gameplay.

I used to be one of those people who was like "Indies? Meh."

But I've since changed my tune. I'm really excited for some of the indies we're getting this year...

DigitalRaptor2272d ago (Edited 2272d ago )

I know. The only ones downplaying the awesome looking indie games are well.. you know who. They believe that indies are all cheap, 2D sidescrollers made by weird talentless hacks, when these developers are more creative and full of just as much passion for gaming as the rest of the big guys. Indie will be just as relevant as AAA games this gen, and that's thank's to the influence of the guys who popularised it to begin with, and Sony for embracing them more than anyone else.

Those games you mentioned look great.

But this is the one to look out for:

ElementX2272d ago

It's too bad anybody ever thought "meh" of indies.

ABeastNamedTariq2272d ago

"Essentially, Sony is hoping to woo the crowd with a huge focus on indie games, as opposed to Microsoft’s focus on bigger franchise-centric games."

Uh, what?

I think Sony is focusing on offering the best of both worlds. AAA games (Infamous, Killzone, DriveClub, DCUO, etc.) and great looking indie games.
