With "Designed for" on accessories and "Optimized for" on games... they are doing their best to convey the future of their platform. Now we just need fresh new games to really bring up the rear.

Fresh new games should have been the main force lol

Auron42d ago you really think Microsoft has 15 game studios to make no games?
We know those 15 are working on fresh new games.

Auron40d ago

Nvm they have 24 studios now after todays announcement.

Yea I’m asking this genuinely, does anyone know what 1st/3rd party exclusives are launching with the new xbox? Trying to decide if I should wait for Fable and Avowed

NEXUS-642d ago

Just jump in if your keen - those 2 games are at least 2 yrs away.

Auron42d ago

Id say get it when you can now or then game pass is gonna save you some big bucks.
I know the medium, yakuza and watch dogs should be there launch. As long as some other multiplats and games that are smart delivered.

phoenixwing42d ago (Edited 42d ago )

Both next gen consoles are worth it just to play yakuza in next gen glory

And yes I know yakuza is timed for xbox

Lore42d ago

Sounds good, I mainly meant exclusives that also won’t be available on PS. So the Medium is one I have on my list but trying to do research to figure out more. Phantasy Star Online 2 maybe as well?

Scorn, medium, tetris effect, the ascent and Gears tactics off top of my head. Could be more.

These are all of the first and third party games I can think of with one google search. Half of them seem to be timed exclusives and the majority seem to be available through gamepass.
At launch you get upgrades for Gears 5, Minecraft, State of Decay 2, Grounded Wasteland 3, Battletoads, Tell Me Why, Minecraft Dungeons Ori 2, and Horizon 4.
[email protected] has confirmed these temporary exclusives: 12 Minutes, Dead Static Drive, Exo One, Lake, Last Stop, Mad Streets, Sable, Shredders, Song of Iron, The Artful Escape, The Big Con, Tunic, Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer's Legacy, and The Last Night.
For the rest of 2020, you got The Falconeer, Kart Rider Drift, Crossfire X, The Ascent, Gears Tactics, Warhammer Darktide, Second Extinction, Flight Sim, The Gunk, Tetris Effect Connected, and The Medium.
For 2021, I'd bet on Scorn, Age of Mythology, ExoMecha, As Dusk Falls, Call of the Sea, Stalker 2, Everwild, Forza, Phantasy Star Online: New Genesis, and Halo Infinite.
For 2022 it's safe to say Fable, Age of Empires 4, Hellblade 2, State of Decay 3, Avowed, and Project Mara.
If someone could post the next two and a half years of Playstation exclusives (temporary or not) that would be helpful so this thread has a total comparison.
