The Fresno Bee's Rory Appleton takes a look at five games that will turn your beautiful, neglected PS4/Xbox One into your new best friend.
Infamous Second Son and Titanfall are reason enough to pick up either PS4 or the Xbone right now imo. both are amazing games!
How? Neither provides a gameplay experience you could not have on last gen consoles. Infamous certainly looks the part but lacks substance or any real evolution of the open world sandbox. I bought a PS4 at launch but I'm still waiting to be "wowed" by this generation's games.
Ehhh...infamous had some nice physics with nice graphics combo on the ps4 that could not be on ps3,and infamous was pretty damn fun for me,sure not a master piece but enough for people to buy that game and recomend it.
True, but these two upcoming titles are just prettier versions of games that are also releasing on last gen consoles. Evolution in gameplay will come but in the meantime better graphical fidelity is definitely welcome.
You wanted a game to wow in the first 7 months of this gen?To be honest I feel like the first year of any console launch is like a tech demo.I have to say so far Sony have shown amazing tech with title like Infamous:SS,KillZone:SF,Knack, The Order,MLB 14,DC,and even 3rd parties titles are better on PS4. Its amazing how people are still able to doubt Sony ability to create/develop amazing games.Think about this how many 1st party studios didn't release a game during the PS3 lifespan that made their success during the PS2 era.For the past 8+ years I think Sony and their developers have been working on some amazing titles in every genre we can think of.Don't be surprise before the PS5 comes out either Naughty Dog or Quantum Dream could have an title win a Oscar... Gaming is only getting started.
lets be honest infamous second is particle effects tech demo, I mean neon, smoke and video powers! Sony can pay for their own R&D. TitanFall is yet another military multi-player shooter. how these two games were used to justify the purchase of a current gen is beyond me.
I'm surprised so many people didn't agree with this. A lot of people really like Second Son and Titanfall.
Infamous is certainly fun, but only for a few hours. Once you get a certain power, you never see a reason to use the others, and once you've "cleared" the map, which takes a few hours and is stupidly easy, there is...mmmm...LITERALLY nothing else to do. It's a game that doesn't do anything, graphically or gameplay-wise, that we haven't been seeing since maybe 2009.
Surely doesn't apply to X1. The Show certainly is not on X1, and non of those games are exclusive to X1.
Multiplats are not bad though. That just means you make your choice and it just happens to be available on other consoles. No big deal.
Plants VS Zombies, Ryse and Titan FALLS already Justified my purchase. That list is PlayStation centric and was intended as such. The mention of a Wii-u game is just their for cover. I should read : Games which Finally justify our PS4 purchase.
Non of these games are, because all of them also came to last gen or are coming to last gen. I know, it is not the same graphics, but who cares? Who has such high mental problems, that he had to buy a PS4, just for Watchdogs, because it looks better. But whatever, I mean, I am writing on this board, so let the disagrees begin^^
So we should all neglect better graphic detail, textures, draw distance, smoother frame rate and higher resolution - and live in the past? It's called progress and evolution. That's not say there isn't fun to be had on previous gen - mine still gets used loads. I disagree - but not bothered with 'Disagree'. You're welcome to YOUR opinion too!
Ok, so you are willing to spend like $400 for 1 game, which you could play perfectly fine, just because of better visuals. That is not evolution. If the game would only come to current gen and not to last gen, then I would say it is worth the buy, but everything else is for people with serious mental problems. Oh no, it is unplayable, it is just 720p, my eyes burn^^ Come on, you know what I meant by that.
But there are plenty of other games coming to the new consoles as well. Arkham Knight, Battlefront, Destiny, Watch Dogs, Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy, all of that is coming.
Nope - I'm willing to be an early adopter for current gen. And whether games are available on last gen or not - more likely to buy on current gen. Obviously. In that respect - I didn't buy for one game, I bought for all it offered and hope will offer. So assuming you buy a next gen console in next two years, are you still going to buy last gen versions of games if released on both? Because everything I mentioned earlier isn't important? Come on...
They were justified day one. Everybody knows there were games incoming they would want to play. You either get the system immediately just to have it, & wait for the titles you want. Or you pick the system up when those titles are closer to release. Same as last gen, I now own both. There will be plenty to occupy me with both of them. Wii U in my son's room should anything exclusive drop for that which interests me. Bases loaded.
100% agree, I will have every one as new games come out. I do have Wii U and PS4 now though, just waiting on Super Smash Bros and The Order.
Everybody has a preference, but if you can afford it, & have the time to invest, too many good options to limit yourself by blind hatred.
Kudos to you sir. :) Bubble up!
nothing is a must own,nothing flower,towerfall ascension and tomb raider are must own but all are rereleases I hope Watch Dogs,Daylight and Child of Light change that fact
Second son was justification enough.
So 2 games that are on last generation titles but will play slightly differently or have less graphical improvements are worth spending 450-550$ to play on Xbox One or PS4?
I also got a ps4 at launch and am waiting to be wowed, as far as watch dogs is concerned, its on all platforms so i dont see how that is an example of what the next gen can do.
Ps: what a bullcrap, waste of time article!
In my opinion, the new Assassin's Creed game is going to be the first case to truly showcase next-gen's capabilities. Ubisoft made it next-gen only to be able to go to extreme new heights. The teaser was said to be made up purely of in-game footage, and boy do these graphics look amazing! There's also the rumored parkour improvements, which I'm pretty sure will make it to the game. Other than that, Ubisoft said it's the biggest Assassin's Creed game yet, and it will define the whole series. Ubisoft want to test themselves with next-gen, and I'm sure they will do an amazing job.
Happy EA is releasing a demo for UFC. They have showed barely any gameplay.
