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.
The only thing is Sony Santa Monica isn't making the game...it'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.
GOW:COO/GOS were fantastic. And this game, visually, looks like CGI. I think they got this.
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).
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
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!
please can u name them all .. and KI, project spark, dragon C, D2, sport rival, and fight within are not AAA just FYI
@nuketail 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.
forza 5, ryse, and killer instinct are just RIDDLED with DLC and microtransactions. even the exclusives reflect microsoft's greed
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. Thanks.
I'm more excited for Killzone Shadow fall, the first primarily next-gen exclusive shooter.
I'm just here for that picture. Xbone looks massive sat next to PS4 lol
@Computer Holy crap, it looks huge compared to the PS4! Gosh. (To clarify: I'm not saying that's good or bad, just... Gosh.)
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. Helldivers. 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...
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: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
It's too bad anybody ever thought "meh" of indies.
A common mistake.
"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.
Actually both have good games at launch
the awkward moment when killzone shadow fall has more pre-orders than ryse, dead rising, forza combined in the U.S.A
is that true?
@Ron_Danger....lol really you use numbers from vg charts? The last time I checked those numbers wasn't accurate. So please find some real numbers.
Yeah I did use vgchartz. The same vgchartz that inflated all of the MS numbers and rounded down all of the Sony numbers the past 6 years. And if they still continued their trend with the link I posted, then you MS fanboys are gonna have so much fun playing the numbers game next gen.
While I agree VGChartz has their "history" I believe in this case the pre-order numbers they are pooling is something that can be documented/tracked...no? Thus making this article one of the times they can possibly be taken seriously compared to their "random" calling stores and "out of thin air" estimations based on those numbers. But don't quote me on that until it's confirmed...lol
If I'm to be used as an example, I haven't preordered any XBox One games because I will be downloading all of mine. While PS4 users will have to get up to change games because you HAVE to have a disc, I'll quickly switch between games because all my games will be on my hard drive. And before you go saying "I can download all my games on my PS4" then why are there so many preorders for discs? Oh, I forgot, you guys were the ones complaining about the Xbox One policies even though you were never buying One.
Exactly man. I plan on downloading almost all my games. Why wait at midnight in the cold at gamestop when I can just sit in my comfortable living room and download it right at midnight? Digital downloading is the future and it seems some PS4 diehards just are ignoring it because Sony isn't pushing it or are just behind with the times.
Are you two serious ? I can buy GTA5 digtally now on PS3 as well as many other games that launched DAY 1....Like Madden25 which i bought at Midnight on PS3. A trend that will be continued on PS4. Take a look outside your bubble sometime.... you will see that the world is very different than you think it is
Well you have to consider that the PS4 is ahead in pre-orders and Killzone is really the only launch game that looks appealing for it and is getting all the hype plus attention. It really is no surprise that it's ahead. The Xbox One's exclusive launch line up is so diverse that it's hard for the xbox fans to decide which one to go with.
I just want gears if they go back to gears 3 controls...everything else is same old stuff.
Oh the irony....
Glad someone has a sense of humor around here. Lol
Same could be said about KZ
I think the xb1 has a good exclusive launch line up but its a lineup that wont do that well for the audience MS attracts. I expect most ppl who get an xb1 to be on either cod bf4 or any of the sport games like 2k14 and madden. Those will be the popular games that fly off the shelves. Same with the ps4 but KZ will sell well too probably the only exclusive day 1 to do very well. After that infamous will probably sell well and all the games to follow.
So Ryse, Forza, and BF4 are not in the target audience for MS?
BF4 isnt exclusive and no Ryse a Hack & Slash game which is a genre that doesnt normally do great on xbox and Forza has been in decline Sales wise
Why did MariaHelFutura get marked as trolling? He clearly stated the evidence with the links he provided. OT: I believe we'll see both philosophies widen even more in the next 2 -3 years.
You're being purposefully obtuse. Maria's comment contributed nothing to this discussion, and she's been spamming it everywhere. There's nothing remotely constructive about her comments, and you know it. You're just in cahoots with her. Dunno why you'd come out and admit though.
Nevermind half the links were hearsay
lol @ "cahoots" Maria did present information and links about MS launch titles, so I wouldn't say it contributed nothing or was off topic. If her comment was spam it should have been marked as such. I don't personally think trolling means to present true information that someone else may not like. Just my opinion, as is the thought that PS4 has a launch lineup with more variety and a near future with more games, both indie and otherwise. @BattleTorn - You just described N4G. lol
"and she's been spamming it everywhere." I'm all for girls flashing it everywhere but that's just me. ;)
I think it fits in very well with this article. Examining the games gives everyone a chance of discovering each companies ethos and approach to a new gen. It gives me a greater insight. And yes I am in "cahoots" with MariaHelFutura. We secretly meet up beforehand and discuss what we're going to type on N4G for the day...
I'm sure the mods will do what they always do, and that is turn a blind eye as usual. There are no rules until they decide they wanna ban someone....lol
It's Maria. They're gonna mark him or her for trolling simply for commenting. Truth be damned.
Can't wait for these consoles to finally launch, then gamers will finally decide based on what they see...and proper and less biased analysis can be done..
Thing is M$ fell off towards the end while Sony continued to bring out new franchises. The last of Us, and soon beyond Two Souls. It will be no different when the new gen starts. Those indie studios will turn into AAA studios, and Sony is giving alot of love to them. I'm sure the indie studios will return the favor.

I think Sony are doing it right. They've got less exclusives, but more coming over the years. So, you play one or two a year, and wait for the next by playing the indies.
What a bunch of horse poop. Didn't sony fanboys boast all the time that they have more exclusives and now the argument is, "well, lets only have 1-2 per year and I can play some subpar indie games!", really? Come on.
I've never boasted about exculive numbers. I prefer quality over quantity. I never said this is Sony's actual plan. I just prefer having Killzone this year. inFamous the next, probably a 2014 Naughty Dog.
@denawayne go look what irony means in a dictionary.
I have a funny feeling danawayne is an Xbot. Something tells me...
