There’s a clear gulf in quality between these two software selections; while the PS4 would eventually go on to amass a sizeable library of must-own exclusives, it feels like the PS5 is simply starting where its predecessor left off.
100% correct People saying the launch titles and launch window titles for PS5 are nothing special are absolute morons. The launch titles are better than PS2, PS3 and PS4's launch titles.
For the PS2 and PS4 I remember picking games at launch just for the sake of having something. In fairness to the PS3 it gave me Motorstorm and Resistance both of which I couldn't wait for and remained favourites to this day. I cant wait for Demons Souls and Miles Morales now though
Yes it's crazy the software quality announced.
Not only that, but the first year looks insane. Demon's Souls, Miles Morales, Ratchet & Clank, Horizon and God of War all in roughly the first year of the console life is insane and can honestly compete with some of the best years of PS4.
God of War is not coming on the first year
As long as God of War releases before November 12th 2021 it IS coming in the first year. And since they announced it as 2021 that leaves a significant window for that statement to be true
@Fluttershy77: It's set to release in 2021 which for the most part is PS5s first year on the market. That's why I said 'roughly the first year', just in case it comes out late 2021. My point is that the early lineup is stacked.
@Fluttershy77 Now I know that you are just trolling, I replied to you on the same thing on another story 13h ago (your reply on this post it's 1h ago for reference). https://n4g.com/news/237304... I explicitly said to you that the God Of War trailer said 2021, only for you 12 hours later say the same BS here, I showed you your receipts and you've been exposed as nothing more than a troll.
@RpgSama hey I didn't Know there was a release date, I checked on the internet yesterday and it didn't have a release date, for that and XVI (I still don't believe they will come next year, we'll see...) Sometimes I have lots of time to fool around, sometimes I can't check the replies specially when I don't have that exclamation mark, so there you go... "I explicitly said to you..." I'm sorry! that you have explicitly said to me before... lets see if you even see this, because is also not a direct reply... I can't believe the level of aggression and insanity in your comment "you've been exposed" oh my god, and you post a link to all this
Twisted Metal on PS1 and Black on PS2 was a fantastic launch
Twisted metal was not a launch tittle
^ PS1 released September 29th 1995 in the states. Twisted Metal came out November 5th 1995. It came out 37 days after release. I'd consider anything coming out for the PS5 this year as launch.
yeah but that's not a fair comparison @roadkillers the development time back on the PS1 era was way shorter. Also, a launch title is a launch title and Twisted Metal wasn't because it wasn't available at launch. My point is you can't really compare 2 different eras of gaming... If that were the case I'd say that idk: the greatest launch of all time was Atari 5200 because in the first 6 months they had idk 50games ready to play
It would be INSANE to have too many games on launch also. I mean people here think its dumb for ANY game to release on the same day as another one, so them releasing 10 games on the same day would be great? insane. Now to have NONE, thats a different story xD
All the controversy aside, I think the first year line up of games will be the best for a console ever. That's not hyperbole, that's just based on what I see coming out. There's nothing 5o complain about as far as having things to play. And if you skipped PS4 PSplus collection is incredible. It's like catching up on a whole Gen in a couple months.
"all the controversy aside" What are your thoughts on the controversy? Specifically, the cross-gen games between PS4/PS5? Do you see more cross-gen exclusives being announced to release in the 3-6 or 6-12 months or so after launch? "PSplus collection is incredible" Agreed, the value there is insane
The hype for this thing is crazy, cant wait to get mine.
Definitely. Despite some disappointment, the games coming out at launch are so much better. I had to snag a PS5 through sheer will power all night so I can play MM and Demon Souls.
Yeah, it's comparable to the Switch's first year lineup, if not better. However, with all that's going on in the world, it remains to be seen how many of these games actually make it out within that first year. Fingers crossed!
Switch’s first year lineup was as packed as it was because Nintendo so many later Wii U support to that system, which obviously caused Wii U to suffer in its final years Meanwhile PS4 is ending on a stronger lineup than its competition and PS5 is beginning with a strong lineup, which is honestly more impressive
The Switch having 2 of the highest rated games ever on its 1st year to me is much more impressive than something that is completely irrelevant to the actual quality of the games themselves as that is what defines the quality of the 1st year lineup and it wasn't just Mario Oddyssey and BoTW but also Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Mario + Rabbids, Splatoon 2 and Fire Emblem Warriors wich are all good games.
It’s not irrelevant if you’re a Wii U owner that had to suffer in the latter years because of the focus on Switch. PS4 also had two of the highest rated games ever within its 1st year with the release of TLOU & GTAV on the platform. Having quality software in the first year is fine, but what isn’t fine is throwing a customer base that supported you under the bus isn’t fine.
Sony is hitting big. The problem is the demand. The ps5 will be the biggest launch in gaming history. Gamers everywhere are crazy trying to get the console. Reading the comments here is just crazy the hours some spent to get one. Hundreds of stories, shops with lines to pré order, sites going down because of high traffic.
That is true no matter how you look at it. Its one heck of a launch line up
It's not hard to blow away Knack lol. Killzone Shadow Fall was alright though. Looks like we're getting Horizon Forbidden West, God of War 2, Kena: Bridge of Spirits and more next year. Not to mention Spider-Man, Demon's Souls and more for this year.
What really sets PlayStation apart from the competition is that it always ends the generation on the strongest of lineups and begins a new generation with a strong lineup
PlayStation bringing the games as usual. It really does feel like they're stepping it up, if anything!
Everyone listing games is sleeping on Godfall imo. Or maybe I’m just the only one excited for it also.
Hey, we all like different things. I can see the allure of that game for people. Just not something I’m to excited about. Then again, I’m also really excited about the Witcher 3 getting a big update for PS5/Xbox....and that games 5 years old lol.
How is god of war ragnarok in the list of launch titles!?
Be worth getting in 12 months then, yay
Killzone Shadowfall was an amazing game. I love that series, I love Horizon as well, but sheesh can we not just make both? LOL
