Hello everyone, this is my first blog post, also English it's not my native language, please sorry for any mistakes that may occur on the text.
Anyway, looks like we will have a great year for games, so many titles are planned to be released in 2016 for all the platforms.
Big multiplaform franchises are coming, games like Mass Effect: Andromeda, Yooka-Laylee, Dark Souls 3, The Division, Doom, Far Cry Primal, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, and the list goes on.
Probably a new Call of Duty and Assassin's Creed as well, that's for sure, ha! Maybe finally we will be allowed to play Final Fantasy XV.
This blog post will focus more on exclusives for consoles, that's the main reason why we want to play on more than one platform, and i think that Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft are bringing great reasons for gamers to invest on consoles made by them.
Let's start with Sony.
Looks like 2016 will be the best year for PS4, so far, so many exclusive games are expected to be released for the platform. But let's start talking about the PSVR, many gamers are expecting a new way to enjoy games, and all the VR devices are being praised by the industry. We can expect interesting games exclusive for PSVR, titles like Rigs and Robinson.
Some games will be also compatible for VR, games like the new Tekken, Ace Combat and probably No Man's Sky.
But i'm really excited for games like: The Last Guardian, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Persona 5, Ratchet & Clank, Alienation, Dreams, The Tomorrow Children, Nier: Automata, Gran Turismo, What Remains of Edith Finch.
Sony will release your big guns this year, a new Uncharted and Gran Turismo, i wonder how many more devices they will sell this year.
PS4 gamers will have a busy year.
Wii U it's not the favorite console this generation based on the sale numbers, but i'm having a great time with the device and i'm sure that Nintendo gamers are satisfied with the exclusives released for the platform. Amiibos are cool to collect as well.
It's a great investiment for the exclusives alone, games like: Super Mario 3D World, Mario Kart 8, Super Smash Bros, Captain Toad, Bayonetta 2, Splatoon, Xenoblade, Yoshi's Wooly World. Some people agree that Wii U has the best exclusives right now.
But what about this year?
We are expecting for more details of NX, probably Nintendo will have a busy E3. I'm wondering if NX will be released this year too, who knows?
But let's not forget about Wii U yet, two major games are coming for the platform, a brand new Zelda and Star Fox, two franchises that many gamers are willing to play a new game.
Xbox One will have a lot of exclusives this year as well, i like how Phil Spencer is trying to bring diversity for the platform, maybe finally we will have the classic Rare back, because Killer Instinct is back, also Rare Replay.
Franchises like Gears of War and Crackdown are coming back this year, also new games like Scalebound, Quantum Break, Recore, Cuphead, Sea of Thieves. Xbox One users could help me on the comments and list more games that are coming, but i think you get the main idea, many games are coming for XOne.
I probably forgot some games or features for the three consoles, but the main point of this post is that consoles are alive and doing great.
What else are you looking for in 2016?
