Gameskinny wonders why we haven't seen more announcements for exciting new PlayStation 4 exclusives. Maybe at E3?
Maybe because they're waiting for E3 like everyone else? Why tip your hand early?
So wait... you mean you aren't going to jump on the bandwagon of doom and gloom? That's no fun at all. Now what are they going to do with all the confetti and "Next Gen is Dead" banners?
I agree with the article. Quality > Quantity. More AAA, less indies > more indies, less AAAs. The only AAAs I can think of on PS4 is Infamous and Killzone, even though Killzone got bad reviews. With X1 there's half a dozen AAAs ALREADY released, and soon to come are Quantum Break, Sunset Overdrive, Halo 5, Fable Legends, Gears. @clunkyd I know truth hurts on N4G, but someone's gotta give the reality checks.
@ georgeenoob You're missing the problem here. It's not a matter of AAA vs Indies. Nor is it a matter of Xbox One vs. PS4 titles. Rather the problem is that the author is complaining about the lack of AAA announcements... right before E3.
georgenoob Will you please just STFU already. People should be calling you the king of BullS*it, because thats what I see when reading your stupid fanboyish comments :)
georgenoob "soon to come are Quantum Break, Sunset Overdrive, Halo 5, Fable Legends, Gears. " Mind giving me some release dates, for well any of those games.....
@ georgeenoob Ryse, Forza, Dead Rising, TF (PC) and ? W/o adding that only half of them are good... Ryse LMFAO; even if i "enjoyed" the game, i can't defend that. "Half a dozen" ? Where ? Remember, you talk about AAA so don't come w/ KI which is the same as a Resogun for exemple... OH and Uncharted 4, The Order 1886, DriveClub and TLOU R. say "Hi" !
@georgieporgie You know at first I was thinking about responding to you. I was thinking about asking you what the hell do indies have to do with AAA titles. I was thinking about asking relevant is the statement "More AAA, less indies > more indies, less AAAs" when completely different studios work on AAA and indy titles. I was gonna ask about journey, outlast, minecraft, flow and the likes, all these indies that have received critical acclaim and are loved by all. I was gonna ask who the hell really cares what you consider to be a AAA title. But then it dawned on me, I would be asking georgenoob. A guy that has his navel string so joined to microsoft that when albert penello drinks hot coffee you belch. So I'm not gonna ask you any of those questions because with that one bubble, you won't be able to respond anyway.
Bubbling you up to infinity. Best comment I've seen in days.
And georgeenoob once again shows his unrelenting bias by conveniently forgetting to mention upcoming PS4 exclusives, while listing more upcoming X1 exclusives....that have no confirmed launch windows. Then he claims himself as bringer of "reality checks". Bwahaha. Some people..... Then he has the neve to say "quality> quantity"...when 2 of the X1's launch exclusives were rushed, cancelled 360 projects (Ryse, DR3). Wow. "I agree with the article" Of course you do, lmao. Because you are nothing but a troll, taking any chance you can get to downplay the company that has caused you so much butthurt over the past year+. You KNOW that E3 is here in 2 months, where will we no doubt see many AAA reveals from Sony, you KNOW the article is stupid for expecting AAA announces before the biggest gaming event of the year, but instead you chose to troll and downplay a console you are clearly jealous of. Man...where the hell were trolls like you when the 360 was a wasteland for the last 3 years of it's cycle? Where you touting "quality> quantity" then too? Because you had neither back then.
@ VeryNicePerson You forgot The Fighter Within and Kinect Sports Rivals. PS4, meanwhile has: MLB 14 The Show, DriveClub, The Order, Everybody's Gone to The Rapture, The Last of Us: Remastered, and several teased AAA games from the likes of Quantic Dream, Media Molecule, Sony Bend, SSM, Guerilla Games (team 2), etc on their way to PS4 with most having release windows. @georgeenoob It's funny that you acknowledge Infamous, because that word pretty much describes you on N4G.
@ George spreading false information = speaking the truth
@georgeenoob: Quality doesn't equal budget. AAA doesn't stand for quality. Some of the best last gen games have been indie games. There are more AAA games availiable right now on X1 than on PS4 but that's probably gonna change soon when you're looking at the upcoming exclusives. Correct me if I'm wrong but as far as I know Forza is the only first party AAA exclusive on X1 yet. Ryse, Dead Rising and Titanfall are all 3rd party exclusives. Also Microsoft is expected to have more exclusives early this gen. Just compare how many first party recources Sony has spent on PS3 in the last 2-3 years and compare it to how many MS has spent on the 360. Now pretty much all of Sony's first party are working on the PS4 so there will be the same steady flow of exclusives on the PS4 like it was on the PS3.
There won't be a ton of ps4 exclusives this gen, certain people just are ignoring the signs. Sony is doing all the things ps4 fans hammered MSFT for. Sony is planning to focus on small budget indie titles, rehashes, and moneyhats. Sony is announcing 1000 plus indie games that can be played on any laptop or pc (less than 1% of those games will be good). Sony has played it safe with the big titles, not taking any chances Infamous SS and KZSF are rehashes, uncharted is coming soon, and they are already releasing the 10 month anniversary edition of tlou. Lastly Sony has to be setting a record for most moneyhats to start a generation, AC, MGS, Watch Dogs, Destiny. All in all people keep mentioning Sony ' reputation to being quality exclusives, we'll they didn't have the financial situation they have today. Also since I know MSFT and XB1 will come up Forza, DR3,Halo are rehashes, But Ryse, Titanfall, PvZ, and KI (technically not new, but new) were risks that just happened to work out.
@george here we go again with his lame ass trolling skills. stfu! edit: truefan oh yeah? post a link.
@johndoe11211 Man ..you've blown off his forehead lol
Truefan....you really have gone off the deep end man. Seriously. It's got to the point now where i don't know if you genuinely believe what you are typing, or you are just saying it to get a reaction out of people. Either way, it's incredibly sad to see. Hypocrisy, delusion, contradictions, trolling, plain old lies....your comments consistently have them all. As an X1 only gamer....ask yourself, what are you even doing here? I could spend ages sitting here quoting you and proving you wrong, but im too tired, so i'll only do this one- "not taking any chances" http://www.polygon.com/2014... Convenient how that gets forgotten, huh? If that's not considered taking chances, then i don't know what is.
@ georgenoob SONY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE MAKING OF INDIE GAMES. They simply made the PS4 accessible to all developers, period. Sony studios are all focused on making PS4 games right now. Killzone did not get bad reviews. It got better reviews than "AAA" Xbox One marvels such as Ryse, Fighter Within and Crimson Dragon. So GTFO troll.
*Looks at Child of Light* Yeah that game to me looks better then any next gen game available on either side. I'll take my indie games over most stuff coming out today because that's where the real gems are hiding. People trying to create something that hasn't been done before to make a huge splash. Love indie titles and hope PS continues the amazing support!
Man, articles like these are so dumb. The console isn't even 6 months old and E3, where the major announcements happen, is 2 months away. You want them announce AAA's before E3 and then just stand on the stage for 2 hours at E3 with nothing to show? Dumb article is dumb.
Who wrote this article anyway? God damn, article is so LAME!
Yeah, but there you go asking the author to think about the bigger picture... Next thing we know, you'll be asking him to do other crazy things like "make sense" and "use his brain".
No way Man.... the support of 100+ indie games will totally make up for a lack of AAA games.
Of course they do.....then they can make articles on how Sony didn't have anything at E3 to show
to Lukas-.. i agree . Man, i do not understand why these articles continue to be written! The real truth is, for people debating which console has more TRIPLE A games . Well over a 150million people are still playing TRIPLE A games from 7th gen! including me !
yeah I would think so. Besides does anyone remember the PS2 launch? and the lack of games for the first year? Seriously look at the list comparing the games on ps4 to xbox one and tell me which is the better system http://www.dualshockers.com... neither have that many AAA games, however the ps4 has a lot of games!!!
Don't get me wrong... they "could" announce a title before hand, hype it up a bit, then do a showcase reveal at E3... but nothing is like seeing the crowds reaction to either a new exciting IP or a sequel to much loved franchise.
They have already done that; with Driveclub, The Order and Uncharted 4 (to a lesser extent).
I swear it seems like allot of these journalist/ gamers never bought a launch console until now. Less then 6 months in and they want all the heavy hitting games. They want the same library it took last gen consoles like 8 years to achieve lol.
Gotta love how people have waited only weeks before E3 to start the slagging of Sony and MS.. Yeah you fanboys get your hits in now as its gonna be harder to hit out at Sony and MS after E3.
We don't need games we have greatness
5 months. That's how long the system has been out, 5 months. What the hell do you expect in 5 months? I don't get these authors and these ridiculous articles.
Exactly and they forgot that games takes time to make they don't just magically appear out of thin air when you want them too.
It was the exact same thing last year with the Wii-U.
minus third party and indie to fill in gaps
But MS is rolling them out 1 after the other. This is a big year for X1 and the titles are announced and coming in 2014!
E3, that the place they announce their new exclusive Ip .
*Ahem* E3 awaits. For ALL the big publishers.
e-3 and rockstar co exist as much as sony/micro fans
Okay, many of the big publishers. Fixed it, ya ninny. :P
If you've seen all the insider tweets recently you'd know Sony have got exclusives in the pipeline coming very soon and you do realize E3 is in 2 months don't you? There's a reason they wait to unveil big exclusive games aha
I think the amount of firepower showing up at E3 will be incredible. I am so happy everyone is bringing their A game... or should I say their AAA game :)
Where are the ones for Xbox One? It's a waiting game in general, man. Dumb article.
Forza, dead rising, titanfall
Killzone, infamous:ss, and mlb the show in 2 weeks. I can name games too!
LOL @Ghost Mediocre games nobody invests time in! TF can't be XB exclusive if it's on PC. Just saying.
@LiinoMajire I think it's considered a Microsoft console exclusive. PC is EA's turf thanks to Origin.
Thats it from now on anytime someone asks this dumb question.I'm just gonna label them as a first time early adopter.
Unannounced instead of showing you them all and dropping then 2.5 years later
Well, Yoshida said they would be more focus on Indie titles than triple A exclusives. They feel indies are more profitable than investing in AAA exclusives that may not sell enoug to make a profit.
Stop trolling and making things up. Yoshida said nothing of the sort and that is most definitely not what they feel. You are literally making things up. People like you are so threatened by Sony's reputation for exclusives. Marked down for trolling. "Go look it up dude before calling someone a troll." I don't need to look up something i know is definitely false. Yoshida said that indies would fill the gaps between big releases. Sony have also said multiple times that there would be more focus on indies in general.....not "more focus on indies than triple A exclusives". Your comment is a poor attempt at downplaying Sony's rep for exclusives. If Sony thought that investing in indies was so much more profitable than anything else, they wouldn't be bothering with new IP's such as The Order and Driveclub and would sure as hell not be making the huge financial risk that is Project Morpheus. And i am 100% confident in my claims that you are a troll. I've been noticing it a lot in your comments lately. Just get a PS4 as well as an X1 and be a gamer, not some salty PS4 downplayer.
Go look it up dude before calling someone a troll.
[email protected] I have to disagree with you and side with lukas Sony is looking for balance with indies and AAA games. Sony will have to cut back on the funding for lots of new games, but it be stupid to think they will not have some new first party games to show at E3 But my view is Microsoft will show more AAA games off at E3
Where do you slags get this random crap from?! Ps4 has many more triple A games coming than the x1 does...
Sony has 2 AAA titles & MS has 3 AAA titles . That I know of I mean AAA coming out this year . Is deep down a AAA Title ?
The order is AAA, so is mlb the show.
Yeah because Sony had lack of exclusives last gen? Please explain how 360 had no games for 3 years on 360 even though they have the most money? A couple exclusives on your Xbone and you would think it's raining exclusives. Also when was the last time there was a GOTY nomination for an MS game? You forget that Sony 1st party studios destroy MS in quality and quantity. But yeah now your seriously grasping at straws.
You're making the claim; YOU back it up with links. Except there is no link, because you're trolling. But will you be marked? When are you ever?
Sony doesn't make the indie games nor do they invest in them because they're indie and Sony is not. They created a good policy and made the PS4 accessible to all developers. But Sony's actual first-party studios are all working on PS4 titles.
How many good PS3 games were there in the first half of 2007, versus where Sony ended up in 2013? There's your answer.
They be at your local game shop. Go!
I bought both PS4 and X1 on 29.november. But PS4 is gettin all multiplatform games because of difference in resolution, fps or both. I bought Infamous Second Son on PS4 in march, but no exclusive on X1 as of this year. I dont support only multiplayer games like Titanfall and PVZ GW, so thats the reason X1 in my home have no games to date I wanna play
Why did you buy an X1 if you didn't want to play MS exclusives like Titanfall and PvZ?
Bought it for Killer Instinct and Forza 5. Only 2 games so far for this year and next year I gonna buy is Halo 5 and Quantum Break. Cut me a break, I want those two games this year please.
The answer is E3 2014.
I swear they have retards writing these dumb ass articles. Ever heard of E3 retard ? You expect Sony to announce a new IP on a regular day, or M$, and Nintendo ? You know its always like this, stop acting like this is something new.
Being developed was the first thing that sprung to mind. Patience is a virtue or do gamers want to pay top dollar for demos all the time.
They will come... Just like the PS1, 2 and 3. Sony doesn't say they make games for the hardcore, then forgets about them a few years into the generation. Many new IPs will be announced along with sequels.
"Sony doesn't say they make games for the hardcore, then forgets about them a few years into the generation." - That's Microsoft's job :)
