Do Launch Titles Really Matter For The PS5 And Xbox Series X?

KeenGamer: "With all the hype around the upcoming arrival of a new generation of consoles, do the launch games that will accompany the PS5 and Xbox Series still have as much significance as past launch games had? While the excitement around the technical specs and games library is palpable, do any of the day one releases hold as much weight as they used to?"

So why do you want me to buy those boxes?

If it didnt matter the you'd just continue to game on current gen systems.

And 10's of millions will. The migration to the next gen always takes years. Games releasing at launch have a short-lived importance.

Ok, if you're talking about Halo, I guess I agree. With it being cross gen, it might not be as important, but something does have to be said when you launch with a major tentpole franchise.

Mario 64 does come to mind too.

It *feels* like Halo and Gears is always a Launch title for Xbox but I know it isn't

How so? Only the first Halo was a launch title.

When I think of Xbox, All I think of is Halo and Gears as their only good AAA game but that's my opinion and subjective

That's not an opinion - it's flat out wrong. Halo CE was a launch title, Gears was not a launch title for either of the two generations it's been around for. Neither franchise even coincided to release with the One X.

You only posted to troll around and you couldn't get that right.

CaptainHenry91644d ago

Had nothing to do with troll. That's just how I feel about the Xbox

Makes no sense considering the original gears released a full year after the 360 released.
