OK, so you’ve decided to pick up one of these lean mean gaming machines, because a year has gone by and you know that each system has worked out its kinks and amassed a decent library of titles.
I like the playstation's line up. Mostly because of WiLD & no mans sky.
There are more exclusives on Sony's platform this year. This article also conveniently leaves out LB3. I wonder why? Is it to push some biased agenda? Xbone didn't have a single retail exclusive this year until October. To have your first exclusive 10 months into the year is shocking. @Yarbie. No. There are far more exclusives on Sony's platform this year. I know you guys like to stick your fingers in your ears and cover your eyes whenever anyone posts a comparison list. So I won't bother D4, KI2 and project spark aren't even true retail exclusives. And Titanfall is a multiplatform game. @kribwalker So Kinnect sports rivals is all they had? Infamous was a true AAA game out in March. @XBLSkull. "Halo > Sony exclusive" haha. Halo hasn't been top rated since the first Halo. Uncharted 2 held the record for most videogame awards in History which was then overtaken by the Last of Us. Both games are considered the best of last generation and LOU is considered one of the best games of all time. You post your statements yet have no info to back them up. Nice work
Good point. If it's because LBP3 is not a PS4 exclusive then Forza Horizon 2 shouldn't be on the list.
There are more exclusives on Xbox's platform this year. This article also conveniently leaves out Project Spark, Killer Instinct Season 2, D4, Xbox Fitness, Titanfall. I wonder why? Is it to push some biased agenda? /s
May not have been the best game but kinect sports rivals came out in April, just so you are aware before you spew out more bias garbage. And infamous SS was the only true next gen retail exclusive on PS4 until driveclub this year as ff14 mlb and last of us were all playable on PS3.
Xbox for online gaming! Playstation for singleplayer gaming! Like allways it will never change!
@saltwater... so you only like to look at "retail" exclusives? On topic, can gamers enjoy exclusive games (in general) without having to whip out each others ____ to measure? come on guys, we are better than that. both systems have great exclusive games. So...put the rulers away, pick up the controller, and play.
2014 Highest rated retail exclusives (so far): 1. PS4 - The Last of Us - 95 2. WiiU - Bayonetta 2 - 91 3. Xone - Halo MC Collection - 88 PS4 Retail Exclusives: The Last of Us Remastered (95), Final Fantasy Realm Reborn (86), MLB14 The Show (83), Infamous Second Son (80), Samurai Warriors 4 (75), Killzone Shadow Fall (73), Drive Club (71), Knack (54) and LittleBigPlanet 3. Xbox Retail Exclusives: Halo MC Collection (88), Titanfall (86), Forza Horizon 2 (85), Sunset Overdrive (82), Forza 5 (79), Fantasia (79), Dead Rising 3 (78), Kinect Sports (60), Ryse (60) and Fighter Within (23). Each system offers different experiences for different gamers. Go with whichever lineup caters to you the most. Im just amused at how some people are trying to say "PS4 has no games" just to make themselves feel better about the fact PS4 is currently outselling the Xone by a pretty big margin.
More doesn't mean better.... Personally I'm indifferent on the matter but it seems like the fanboys always need big numbers to state which is better... It really matters what tastes the gamer has. Someone might favor the PS4 lineup because of games like Bloodborne or The Order. Some people may not be interested in them and prefer Quantum or Halo. Regardless, having a bigger exclusive lineup does not equal a better one. Just look at the reviews for Driveclub compared to Forza Horizon 2. Both exclusives, both racing games, two completely different receptions. and DC sold more. An inferior game sold more. If that doesn't wreak of bias I don't know what does, but it proves my point - at least to a small degree. more importantly who cares. if you don't have an Xbox you aren't going to be buying Xbox games and vice versa so whats the point?
#2015 --------------------- Bloodborne The Order 1886 Dragon Quest Heros God Eater 2 :Burst Rage The Tommorrow Children Rachet And Calnk Remake MLB :The Show 15 Until Dawn Tearaway Unfolded Persona 5 Uncharted 4 Gran Turismo 7 Abzu Without Memories Rime Shadow Of the Beast Everybody Gone To Rapture Wild No Mans Sky Let It Die Deep Down Ever Quest Next Planet Side 2 H1Z1 Alienation Kingdom Under Fire II Eve Valkyrie and more to get announced the though out the year so Stop your nonsense. PlayStation was always about gaming you trolls..
Sony has more MS has better. The Show is the best PS4 exclusive IMO. I just don't see any sony exclusives that compete with Forza, Project Spark, Killer Instinct, Halo, or Titanfall. Also I don't like linear games unless they have killer multiplayer. That's just my opinion tho. Competitive multiplayer is always my main thing so I want to play on what the big leagues (MLG) play on. If you liked last of us great! But that's not my type of game. Also I don't care which system is a little more powerful because I have a flagship PC and the difference between x1 and p4 is just a hair compared to the concole PC difference I gotten used to over the last 16 years.
really dude? come on look at the order that game is beastly. nothing the x1 has got compares as of now. the sooner gears or halo is released then maybe yeah but i read the reason they are holding back right now is because the console cant play the games in native 1080 and ruin the frps and like them games need to be perfect or there will be serious lag in pvp
Xbox one.. Ppl have no idea..
I like the Xbox One's better so far.
As usual, I see far more that appeals to me on the Sony side.
As usual, that's no surprise.
thats weird coming from a site dominated by sony fanboys... a site where every xbox article has the first couple comments flagged for trolling and a TLOU menu settings for sound story hits the hottest number one spot on the page. don't see nearly the bias on the other sites i follow. That said, I think both sides have some pretty compelling stuff to offer. really looking forward to uncharted for ps4 and quantum for xb1.
I will give the slight edge to the X1 right now
PS4 so far without even factoring in their indie advantage
Xbox One and it's not even close.
highest rated game this gen: THE LAST OF US REMASTERED (metacritic 95)
Your best game is a last gen game. How about a NEW exclusive?
People don't care(especially on this site)They just want to be on the side that's winning. That's all that matters. Their playing Drive Club and a PS3 game and are happy, as long as their choice is validated with console sales $$$ figures.
Same thing can be said for MCC.
So your hightest reated game of this gen on the PS4 is a last gen game on the PS3??? Thank you for reminding me Why the PS4 line up sucks this year.
Compared to Xbox, PS4 has been killing it all year. http://www.listwar.com/rele...
Its that good. Just play it.
The highest rated game on the X1 is Halo MCC. Does the X1 line up suck too?
Same thing can be said for MCC :/
2015 should be a real interesting battle with Uncharted 4, Halo 5 and Zelda all being released in the Fall and others exclusives but IMO, the xb1 defintely have 2014 lineuo in the bag. I mean, the last 3 releases, forza horizon 2, SSOD, and Halo MCC all scores great and gamers love them. The Wii U also have a solid lineup with Bayonetta 2, and No doubt Smash Bros upcoming. The PS4 really dropped the Ball with Driveclub, delaying the Orders 1886 till next year and little hype around LBP3. So in conclusion, here is my medal awards for 2014. Xb1 = Gold medal wii U = silver medal Ps4 = Bronze medal
I agree with this and Quantum Break looks like a GOTY contender already for 2015
Replace 'Quantum Break' with 'Bloodborne' and your 15 hater disagrees would be agrees. Classic how that works around here. Save the hate bros, game on all platforms and be a TRUE gamer. I don't have to choose sides over plastic boxes because there's a thing called VARIETY. It's great to be a gamer on all platforms ♥
journalists are finally moving on from the resolution wars now they're pushing the flamebait "exclusive wars" because thats what currently bringing the traffic.
Yep a typically pointless article for a pointless argument about preferences
How dare they discuss videogames when they're being paid to discuss videogames and the industry.
but that's what it's supposed to be about. THE GAMES!!! so they are writing about the right stuff now. FINALLY!!! when that crap is completely gone, then and only then can we start this console generation the way it's supposed to be. BUT NOT A MOMENT UNTIL THEN.
Yeah Xbox One has brought the pain this year...And from what Phil Spencer is saying it looks like next holiday season will be the same.
ryse....on pc dead rising 3....on pc titanfall....on pc and x360 forza horizon 2.....on x360 mc collection.....on x360 *runs to shop to buy xbox one
MLB ---ON PS3 LBP ON PS3 DC UNIVERSE ON PC AND PS3 LAST OF US ON PS3... 85% ON INDIE GAMES ON PC.. Whats your point bro?
MCC isn't on 360.
What a poor attempt at downplaying. Only peasant fanboys would feel the need to hate specific platforms. The ones that cannot game on all and be happy with everything. It's great to be a true gamer, gaming on ALL platforms ;)
Xbox has more quality exclusives hands down.. We will see if Phil can continue on delivering new ips beyond this year.
there are very few true exclusives on PS4 and xbox one: on xbox one forza 5 sunset overdrive killer instinct on PS4 KNACK KILLZONE: SHADOW FALL INFAMOUS: SECOND SON DRIVECLUB
PS4:The Last Of Us.Killzone Shadowfall.Knack.Infamous Second Son/First Light.Resogun.Contrast.MLB:The Show2014.FinalFantasy14.Drivec lub. LB3(November). XB1:MCC(November). Sunset Overdrive. Forza Horizon2.Forza5.D4.Project Spark.Killer Instinct.Max:CoB.

Xbox 2014 -> 7x Retails, 3x True Exclusives. PS4 2014 -> 21x Retails, 6x True Exclusives. = PS4 Wins.
THANK YOU! A man hates people that claim Xbox having better exclusives is just a self-evident fact. You gotta prove a claim like this guy!
Yep still nothing to make me stop play SSB on 3ds. No reason to get to move up into "current" Gen yet
3DS is current gen...of handhelds
Correctomundo. My bad
XboxOne 2015 confirmed(!) Retails: - Fable Legends (True Exclusive) - Quantum Break (True Exclusive) - Halo 5 (True Exclusive) - Tomb Raider (One/360, confirmed Timed) / PS4 2015 confirmed(!)

Probably WiLD, No Man's Sky and Tomorrow Chiildren as well in 2015 for PS4. All of which look very promising. Planetside 2 should also arrive in the first half of 2015. I think PS4 will have the edge in number and diversity of exclusives in 2015 over Xbox One, however, both consoles should have heaps of exclusives making it a steller year.
and don't forget Planet Side 2, and H1Z1
It's kinda sad that nobody remembers LBP3, it's a legit release... Not for me, but others love that series. I find it funny that people are so quick to jump on Sony for having a drought at the moment. Early next year looks to be a drought for exclusives on XB1. Sony has BloodBorne and The Order coming in Feb. I understand that you're excited that you get some exclusive games, but remember that this kind of stuff happens. There were drought for both PS4 & X1 during the year, much longer for the X1 actually.
fanboys ( sony and ms ones ) don't remember LBP3, but real gamers do so no worrys people will enjoy the game
I hope so! we need games like that to be successful so that other games like it can get made... like the tomorrow children, not the same but it's a creation/creativity type of game and I'm petty interested in that one... that art direction!
PS4 has a huge advantage in the sheer number of exclusives, and the exclusives it has in the pipeline.
No one mentioned Powerstar Golf launch exclusive which I have enjoyed. And Max Curse of Brotherhood I don't believe is on ps4, although might be on 360 or pc.
Ok I am a "Sony Pony" but I have to admit the xbone wins this holiday season with exclusives. You have to work with the facts then live with the truth. That said I don't care. There are so many multiplats (many of which look better on PS4) that I don't have time for them all. FC4, GTAV, Dragon Age all are long games that will keep me busy until the big Sony exclusives drop next year. Just because a game isn't "exclusive" doesn't automatically make it bad. Ryse and Knack are exclusive and FC4 and GTAV aren't but I think you know which ones I would rather play. Bloodborne will be a great Sony exclusive but if it suddenly came out on xbone would it instantly become bad on PS4? No. Exclusives are fine but a bit overrated to me.
I have to agree in some areas and disagree in others. I think awesome exclusives encourage a better market for everyone regardless of who's in first place. I'm not a fan boy of any cause I like my Halo as much as I like my god of war as much as I like my SSB. I really don't see a true winner this season cause everybody is just now getting fired up (besides Nintendo who's building momentum but I don't think they can sustain this lead past the holidays since the Xbox price drop). OK I'm babbling
