Cut out the non-exclusives. Cut out the sports. Cut out the casual/kids... and there's nothing really left.

When you take out all the game, there are no games left :(.

Probably an okay line-up...if it would release in Scandinavia this year :-) But it's not. PS4 gets lots more customers and Wii U eats up the rest with Mario and a lot of other great games releasing this fall/winter. Microsoft, I'm not sure Xbox One will be a platform for all the world, it's a platform for USA and maybe Great Britain.

Only one launch game (timed) exclusive I'm interested in. I can wait for Peggle 2 to come out on something else. It's not worth $500 for me.

Woo?

#55 Posted by Chuck_ (213 posts) -

lol #driveclub. They should have release GT3 as AOL Keywork: Gran Turismo.

#56 Posted by Azgar (3 posts) -

Driveclub does not have an # in its title.

#57 Edited by SomeJerk (3305 posts) -

Sony and MS both have unannounced games to be presented at TGS. Not sure those TGS titles will be available for launch though.

Love my good original indies that aren't pretentious hipsters about themselves but christ those are a lot of indies on the PS4..

Nope. Not one of those titles is better than Brothers.

Yep, Brad has finally won.

#59 Posted by GERALTITUDE (3431 posts) -

I'm confused. At what point did launch games ever sell a system? I've never bough a system for 1 or 2 games that came out the same day the system did... that just seems so... uh... dumb? If you don't have faith in the industry, don't buy a console. The rest of us will look forward to another 7-8 years of super awesome games.

I like the One's lineup more but there is no way im buying it with kinect

#61 Edited by JasonR86 (9744 posts) -

I might not get Driveclub simply because '#' is in the title. And I'm a Plus member so it's free for me. But that shit sucks.

Were there any exciting announcements for the WiiU?

Just kidding.

I love how they named dropped Phil Fish and Fez coming to Vita for all of 5 seconds then never mentioned it again.

There isn't a game on either list that isn't also coming out on PC that I care about, why did I preorder again?

#65 Edited by Gamer_152 (14091 posts) -

I don't think these lists are amazing, but Assassins' Creed IV is looking good, and I am still very, very excited for Watch_Dogs.

W... why does DriveClub have a hash tag in front of it? Are they seriously making that the official name of the game? That's worse than an underscore for Watch_Dogs.

The only xbox one exclusive I would maybe want to play is Ryse and the only PS4 exclusive is Killzone...guess I'm still comfortable with my PS4 preorder.

#68 Edited by Redbullet685 (6054 posts) -

@jasonr86: @benmo316: The real name of the game is just Driveclub but it has been stylized before as #Driveclub.

#69 Posted by maskedarcstrike (701 posts) -

@gamer_152: Is there a way I can play the ship battles of Black Flag without having to play the rest of the game? Played 1-3 including Revelations, Brotherhood and I'm just burned out on the series.

#70 Edited by RudeCubes (142 posts) -

Gonna have to wait until inFamous, that's the only big game i'm interested in on PS4 other than Knack. (Just in time for my WiiU to build up a real live library)

It doesn't, they dropped that name quite a while back. DriveClub is the official name.

Does DriveClub actually have a hashtag in the name? Son of a bitch.

I'm getting the Xbox One Day One with Dead Rising. I'll get a PS4 later for sure.

#75 Edited by KaneRobot (1689 posts) -

XBox has historically always had an okay (at least, not downright offensive) launch lineup with at least one must-have. Halo on the OG Box, Call of Duty 2 on the 360. The XBone sort of lacks anything I'm as excited about as I was for the previous two consoles. CoD is far too played out, and BF4 is something I'll probably just get for PC later on down the line. Forza I'm sure will be nice but is too niche of a game. Watch Dogs may turn out to be the most exciting, but that's not an exclusive either, so...feh.

Sony doesn't offer anything worth noting that's not also on the XBone. Bring on 2014.

#76 Posted by masterpaperlink (1853 posts) -

watchdogs is likely the only game ill ever play on that list.

I got pretty burned out too; I deliberately didn't play III for that reason. I probably wouldn't be on board for IV, but I have a bit of a weakness for pirates.

Xbox 180 seems to have a better launch line up.

Pretty crazy that we have a console launch with some big franchise titles on day one. Usually it's just all garbage.

It does not, no. That was just a Twitter thing and now everyone seems to be confused.

#80 Edited by TheHBK (5508 posts) -

Zoo Tycoon? Well Microsoft just won. While Sony wants to stroke the egos of indie devs who can't really make money, MS is doing some serious shit.

#81 Posted by PenguinDust (12558 posts) -

Watchdogs is the only game of the bunch I have even an inkling to play and I can get that for my PC. I'm not saying it's a bad line up, just there isn't much for me. No RPGs yet, so I'll be waiting until the New Year for a next gen console.

#82 Posted by Nezza (373 posts) -

Having gone off FPS in recent years nothing really jumps out at me at all. Lego, Skylanders and Just Dance are really, really not aimed at my demographic and outside of FIFA I'm not interested in any of the sports games.

Watch_Dogs, ACIV and a new FIFA are the titles that appeal to me most. But given they are all coming on the existing consoles, are they really going to be improved enough to justify the purchase of a whole new console? I haven't really seen anything that shows the difference between the versions and I'm still skeptical of ACIV after ACIII.

That leaves DriveClub, which I'll get to try out at a PS+ member and so won't be pre-ordering that although I'm hoping it turns out to be great.

There are certainly games coming up which I'm really looking forward to - particularly Witcher 3 but the launch titles aren't making me impatient for launch.

#83 Edited by Corvak (1128 posts) -

Removing the sports, the games also releasing on PC, and the party games and...

-Dead Rising 3

- Killer Instinct

- Ryse Son of Rome

Of those, KI depends on friends picking it up as well, so Ryse would probably be my pick. However, since I like games on both platforms, I will choose the $100 cheaper PS4 during a busy November, and pick up the One in Feb. or March 2014.

#84 Posted by TechDemoTREX (27 posts) -

So based on this I've narrowed down which next gen console to get this holiday to two.

Hint: It's not an MS or Sony console. One is a handheld and both have good games out or coming soon.

#85 Edited by yindotrunks (95 posts) -

These lists are fairly underwhelming. I was all caught up in the new console hype, but just looking at these two lists... maybe I'll just wait a while.

#86 Posted by DoctorWelch (2774 posts) -

It's weird to hear people talking about which console they are going to get when you look at the launch games the only question that comes to my mind is why I would want either of them.

#87 Posted by Jayzilla (2567 posts) -

can i just play a lot of these on my 360? idk, that is a great looking launch list, but i think i am still gonna just go oculus rift and pc this generation for the first time in my life.

#88 Edited by yevinorion (700 posts) -

Sony's list looks real lackluster. Hoping there's more to it that they just haven't confirmed yet.

#89 Posted by spraynardtatum (3252 posts) -

PEGGLE 2!

I was so happy when this guy jumped in the air like that.

I was like:

#90 Edited by Silver-Streak (1369 posts) -

I will probably get NFS:Rivals (Which looks surprisingly good if they can get the framerate up), Watch_dogs, Killzone:Shadowfall, Knack on PS4, and Crimson Dragon + Dead Rising 3 on Xbox One.

(I might also buy the full version of Drive Club depending on how good the PS+ version is)

Both have pretty good launch lineups, from the look at it.

I'm excited as all hell for November.

#91 Posted by JetForceGemini (174 posts) -

I'm definitely digging the XBO launch games more. Sony's exclusives aren't doing anything for me.

#92 Posted by DJJoeJoe (1326 posts) -

Pretty good line up IMO

Way better than the 360's Launch

Sure, the 360 lineup was pretty rad for me at the time though, and I didn't even play Condemned (just the demo, which I thought was rad but scarey and I'm a big wimp). I adored Project Gotham Racing 3, Amped 3, and Perfect Dark Zero and Call of Duty 2. Yea in retrospect not the best games... but dude you only need like 1-2 games for launch that you enjoy, the rest comes soon after and this year particular seems to be set up for that also (tons of 2014 games that look very rad to me). Watch Dogs is THE game for me right now and I'm glad it's so close to launch, on launch day it seems they are saying now (why no day one edition guys... I get that it may have not been clear up till now but that shit is so stupid and small... just like an avatar item and a skin or something BS... just throw that shit in there lol... make me feel special!!!).

Definitely 'more' games on the Xbox One this time around, though honestly I just care about that one magical game and the rest are looking great but... I could care less (back in the day I'd rent those games... these days I just don't play them usually). Tons of sports games too it seems, lots more games on the list this time round where I can see they are likely to be good games but my interest in them has dropped, like forza and dead rising for example... look like they will be rad games but I kinda went through my racing games back on the xbox and 360, and now I really JUST care about codemaster dirt games at best... or a new project gotham... *squints eyes.

#93 Posted by Skytylz (4033 posts) -

I'm tempted to cancel my preorder of Watch Dogs because of that stupid underscore.

#94 Posted by mikey87144 (1797 posts) -

Despite just finishing a gaming rig I'm still stoked to have a PS4 on launch day. I'm in the weird position now of figuring out what system to buy some games on. Also as I have a PC I can play Titan Fall just fine next year.

#95 Edited by mernmern (46 posts) -

I really wish there was a solid RPG at launch for the XBox One that I could plug 100+ hours into to keep me occupied well into 2014. I held off on the 360 until Morrowind was released for that exact reason. While I am looking forward to the new dashboard features and finally trying out the kinect, the games I am most looking forward to this fall are GTAV (360), Beyond: Two Souls (PS3) and the Stick of Truth (360). Ill keep an eye on Ryse but I am leaning towards Watch_Dogs.

I am also interested in what MS and Sony may do to ensure people don't cancel pre-orders of their system. I suspect many people have pre-ordered both with the intent of only picking up one at launch. I would have been psyched if MS had announced FIFA for the US.

#96 Posted by Vrikk (912 posts) -

Knack and Watch_Dogs for me for the PS4. The One is looking better and better, but I'm still holding out until about 6 months after it's been out.

#97 Posted by Fram (682 posts) -

Killer Instinct and Crimson Dragon INTO MY EYES.

#99 Edited by development (2440 posts) -

The only thing here that interests me at all is Assassin's Creed, because (as ironic as this sounds) that's one of the only games doing anything actually interesting (referring to the ship battling/exploring and general pirate-ing).

#100 Posted by kerse (2117 posts) -

Pretty good lineup for a launch, but to be honest none of those games are really gonna get me to grab a new system right away except Watch_Dogs so I think I'm gonna wait for a bit after launch.
