“It's probably too late for the Xbox One to ever shed its public perceptions of having too few exclusives, but X018 showed that the future is bright.”

It’s not just about how many exclusives you have it’s about how good they are. That will paint the true picture.

Most of the studios Microsoft purchased aside from Playground Games haven’t put out stellar games. We shall see what happens next generation.

Dude Playground Games is not the only studio they purchased that has put out stellar games. Ninja Theory HellBlade is absoloutely stellar. Obsidian has also released really impressive games in the past as well.
Some of you try so hard its sad

@skull521 If everyone likes Sony exclusives, and you don't, that doesn't mean it's overrated. It just means you have an unpopular opinion.

The mentality of a fan boy.

Statement of fact. Many on the internet like PS and Sony's games.

Logical conclusion(in the mind of a fan boy), entire internet is infested with Sony bias. Bias is based on absolutely nothing but blind loyalty which is somehow undeserved.

Illogical conclusion: Sony hasn't spent the time and effort to build that loyalty from its fans, and hasn't delivered on quality games.

Logical conclusions: I don't like something, so everyone else is wrong, and Sony bias causes reviews to be inflated.

Illogical conclusion: Those games are good, hence they have high reviews.

You can disagree with the Sony bias all you want but the disagrees you'll see on that comment tell a different story.

Skull521,

"You can disagree with the Sony bias all you want but the disagrees you'll see on that comment tell a different story."

I'm pretty sure that means you have an unpopular opinion. bluefox755 is correct. The disagrees you receive are probably from people who disagree with your opinion. Is this difficult to grasp? Shouldn't be, considering you just called The Last of Us underrated. It's just a very well loved game.

Just because you're unable to see a game's value based on the platform it's on doesn't mean your opinion is worth more. I don't see the appeal of Halo at all and think it's highly overrated, but I'm not about to suggest the positive reception from games is inflated.

@ Skull: Oh no, people disagree with you. How will the world go on? /s

You don't have a popular opinion and you're wrong about Sony exclusives. Sony exclusives are amazing games and they sell well. Don't get mad at Sony because Microsoft has yet to follow through on real exclusives.

PapaBop27d ago (Edited 27d ago )

@Ixeasy - was thinking the same thing, Playground Games is a great acquisition but Obsidian deserves to be held up in the same high regard. Ninja Theory have shown their potential with HellBlade but I'm still bitter with DmC and Donte but looking forward to seeing with what they do in the future.

@Skull521 - Sony earned their bias by knowing their audience and consistently delivering in what they want. Microsoft lost a lot of their support due to them chasing the Wii crowd and putting too many of their eggs into their Kinect basket. They seem to be making all the right moves now though so things will improve but the Sony bias if you want to call it that is completely deserved.

@skull

Sony exclusive reviews are not inflated. It takes an idiot to not acknowledge that since it's inception the PlayStation brand has consistently delivered system selling exclusives. Nintendo has done the same. Xbox has had some great exclusive games along the way, but never been consistent enough to even have mascots for the brand. Now anything they do have is playable on PC making it even less enticing to grab one. Anyone defending the Xbox brand likely grew up with Xbox or switched to the 360 from the PS2 because it was significantly cheaper than the PS3 (from the people I know personally anyways), and now have become subjectively biased. Some people may just prefer the OS and Xbox live I guess, but to consider the brand up to par with playstation or Nintendo objectively is just a complete joke..

The fear is real for next-gen.

DarkVoyager28d ago (Edited 28d ago )

@hench07

“The fear is real for next-gen.”

PS4 will have 100 million users which could possibly move to PS5.

Xbox One will have 50 million users of which could move to Scarlett.

Sony Worldwide Studios put out much better games that are highly praised. PlayStation fans have nothing to worry about. Period.

Sorry but the only fear is from Xbox fans and it’s showing. You guys have been saying these kind of things all generation and nothings changed. PlayStation is still dominating.

Skull52128d ago

Sony also had like 160 million PS2 users, and PS3 only had 80 million. If you think people won't jump ship you're crazy.

BeardedDrachen28d ago

@Skull

160m Ps2's mainly due to its price being the cheapest DVD player on the market. Let alone the plethera of games for the system.

rainslacker27d ago (Edited 27d ago )

Fear of what? That Sony won't deliver on games? I'm not afraid of that.

Whatever MS does won't matter to me one bit, because I'm not giving them my money again until they prove that they're worth my time.

On the plus side, I probably won't spend as much time talking about them, because I won't have invested in their system next gen.

This article says that the future is bright for MS this generation, and it really isn't. It's also been a pitiful generation for MS, and despite them doing some good stuff, and setting themselves up for the future, they haven't proven that they are worth investing in.

I said most not all. Playground Games and Ninja Theory being exceptions.

“Some of you try so hard its sad”

I’m pretty sure it’s Microsoft that are chasing Sony and PlayStation. Hence the reason they’re buying first party studios. Seems like you are the ones trying so hard.

Elda27d ago

You're reading for the filth!! Though you speak the truth & sometimes for some the truth hurts.

WickedLester27d ago (Edited 27d ago )

What's funny is i remember when Hellblade was exclusively on PS4, Xbox fans downplayed it, saying "oh look, another PS4 8 hour walking simulator." Now that it's on X1 and Ninja Theory is an Xbox 1st party studio, it's a AAA masterpiece and Ninja Theory is the next Naughty Dog.

Xbox fans can try and marginalize PS4 single player games all they want but they know the truth. If those games suddenly came to Xbox they'd LINE UP to buy those games!

“What's funny is i remember when Hellblade was exclusively on PS4, Xbox fans downplayed it, saying "oh look, another PS4 8 hour walking simulator“

I remember Xbox fans saying exclusives don’t matter much anymore that 3rd party games outsell them for the most part. Now they matter once again. Lol

Switch4One28d ago

Senua's Sacrifice was not stellar?

BeardedDrachen28d ago

It was a decent little game. Wouldn't call it stellar.

WickedLester27d ago

@BeardedDrachen

It only became "stellar" when it came to Xbox. Before that it was just another PS4 walking simulator, LOL

gamer780427d ago

Gears of war 4 is a fantastic game, so his Halo. They just aren't new ips. Imo Xbox has dome a great job of turning it around but new ips take time, but right now the X is my goto place to play all third party games and ms exclusives since they look better, i play Sony exclusives on the ps4.
