What are you guys thinking of getting on Day One?

I was thinking of

Dead Rising OR Watch Dogs ...

#2 Edited by xyzygy (10596 posts) -

I won't be getting mine until next year, but I plan on picking up Ryse, Dead Rising 3, and maybe Forza.

#3 Posted by RawknRo11a (555 posts) -

Well, as a Forza fan the Day One edition of Forza 5 was a no-brainer. May also grab Dead Rising 3 depending on my mood at the time.

#4 Posted by MrJorOwe (283 posts) -

Can't wait for the witty ps4 comment. Will probably wait with the new consoles.

#5 Edited by Blu3V3nom07 (4215 posts) -

I'm thinking Dead Rising 3 and Assassin's Creed IV at launch.

#6 Edited by FriendlyPhoenix (586 posts) -

I'm not buying it at launch, but when I do buy one I'll definitely pick up Forza 5 and maybe Ryse and/or Dead Rising depending on how they turn out.

#7 Edited by Clonedzero (4206 posts) -

I dont think i'm getting one. But Dead Rising 3 looks pretty fun.

#8 Posted by Village_Guy (2817 posts) -

I haven't really planned it out yet. Does Forza 5 have splitscreen?

I might get Ghosts, Battlefield 4, Black Flag and maybe Dead Rising or Ryse depending on whether they are good.

#9 Posted by themangalist (1853 posts) -

IF i were to get an Xbox One, I'd get Ryse. No, I'm serious.

#10 Posted by TheSquarePear (258 posts) -

Zoo Tycoon, duh.

#11 Posted by pweidman (2450 posts) -

Forza 5 and CoD: Ghosts

#12 Posted by Shaunage (796 posts) -

Forza 5, Dead Rising, CoD Ghosts, AC4, NFS, Watch Dogs, maybe Battlefield 4, Fifa 14 (because it's in the box).

Probably a couple more. I'm waiting on the reviews for Ryse.

#13 Posted by ArtelinaRose (1918 posts) -

I'm not buying one at launch, but I'll definitely get Dead Rising 3 whenever I do.

#14 Edited by JCGamer (766 posts) -

Getting both a

PS4 and XBox One at launch. Will get

Battlefield for the PS4. For the XBox One? Liklely nothing but some downloadable stuff I'm thinking.

#15 Edited by Danishmaggot (109 posts) -

Battlefield 4

#16 Edited by BigJeffrey (5199 posts) -
  • Dead Rising 3
  • RYSE
  • Battlefield 3 (Maybe)
  • Killer Instinct
  • Crimson Dragon

#17 Edited by bibamatt (1123 posts) -

So far, my list looks like:

  • Forza 5
  • Dead Rising 3
  • Battlefield 4
  • Killer Instinct
  • Crimson Dragon
  • FIFA 14 (free with Day One Edition)

Will also be grabbing one of Watch Dogs/Ryse/AC4 depending on review scores and impressions. I just have no idea about those three games. Everything I see of Watch Dogs makes me less and less excited... Hope it's great!

#18 Posted by Klei (1799 posts) -

BF4 = PC

AC4 = PC

Which leaves Ryse / DR 3, because Killer Instinct looks horrible and I don't care for car games. How Ryse and DR 3 will turn out, though, is the real question.

#19 Posted by Dimsey (1109 posts) -

Assassins Creed 4
Watch Dogs
Dead Rising 3
Call of Duty Ghosts.
FIFA 14 - though only because it's free with the preorder.

And that'll probably do me.

Ryse looks like a graphical showcase and nothing more, Dead Rising 3 just sounds like a better Dead Rising with better framerate, more zombies on screen, and 0 loading screens in world which sounds awesome.

#21 Posted by SuperSambo (3040 posts) -
  • Fifa
  • Call of Duty
  • Battlefield
  • Need for Speed
  • Dead Rising/Watch Dogs

I am sure Ill get games such as Peggle and Crimson Dragon as well, but it seems like a pretty standard list.

Is Zoo Tycoon actually an indepth experience, or is it watered down for kinect? They both serve a purpose, but I have no interest in the latter version.

And NBA Live 14, it looks like.

It looks decent on the surface, but it seems to lack a lot of depth. Of course I could be wrong, but I will wait for reviews.

Anyway, thanks for the video. Im not sure that I would want to unleash the lions on the giraffes with that graphics fidelity...

#25 Posted by Franstone (1241 posts) -

Forza 5
Dead Rising 3
Might grab another at random, not sure yet.

#26 Posted by EchoEcho (845 posts) -

Forza 5, Battlefield 4... I kind of want Ryse to be good, because Rome, but it just doesn't look like it's going to be. Kinda tempted to pick up Killer Instinct, too, if only for nostalgic reasons. Used to play the hell out of the original on my SNES.

that should tide you over.

#28 Edited by BRich (446 posts) -

Probably just Forza 5 and wait for reviews on anything else.

#29 Posted by Deranged (1944 posts) -

Dead Rising, Battlefield 4 and AC4 are guaranteed. I really, really want Forza, Watch_Dogs and Ryse but I'm on a budget and I'll pick them during/after Christmas.

#30 Posted by HiroKedyn (33 posts) -

On launch day, Dead Rising 3 and Forza 5, been a fan of Forza since the first one and I'm a huge petrol head and Top Gear fan, how can I not get it. AC4 on my next paycheck. My roommate is getting Ryse and Watchdogs so I can just borrow those.

#31 Edited by myxzlplkts (20 posts) -

I'm picking up Dead Rising 3 and Watch_Dogs for sure depending on reviews I may pick up Assassins Creed 4 as well. Also depending on reviews I may download either Crimson Dragon or Lococycle.

#32 Posted by rentfn (1381 posts) -

Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct (pin edition, because I hate my life) and PEGGLE 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!

#33 Posted by isomeri (1814 posts) -

Just Forza 5 at launch and I think I'll buy the upgrade for a full version of Killer Instinct. I'm getting that free copy of FIFA14, but I'll sell or give it away if I can. After I've fiddled with those enough I'll probably download Watch Dogs and Dead Rising 3 as well if it turns out to be any good.

#34 Posted by xX_Kells (37 posts) -

Battlefield 4

Watch Dogs

Dead Rising 3

Peggle 2

Crimson Dragon

#35 Posted by myxzlplkts (20 posts) -

Ok correction AC IV and Dead Rising 3 since they delayed Watch_Dogs.

#36 Posted by TheLastGunslinger (388 posts) -

Watchdogs was on my list but with that delayed I'm sticking with Ryse, Forza, Battlefield, and Dead Rising.

#37 Posted by DoctorTran (1584 posts) -

Forza 5

Dead Rising 3

COD: Ghosts... because why not?

Peggle 2

That's probably it for now... I'm half tempted to get Zoo Tychoon and the Lego Marvel game ... I'll probably get the latter.

#38 Posted by ThePhantomnaut (6288 posts) -

KI and Ghosts.

#39 Posted by big_jon (6191 posts) -

BF4 and peggle 2

#40 Posted by Fram (1016 posts) -

Definitely Killer Instinct and Crimson Dragon, maybe Dead Rising 3 if I like what I see.

#41 Posted by ValeYard (150 posts) -

I'm torn: Forza looks great, but I never play racing games enough. Battlefield 4 is a maybe for multiplayer; Dead Rising would be my first Dead Rising game, so not sure, will wait for reviews. Same goes for Call of Duty.

Looks like my first game will be snapping between apps and playing Fifa, which I never play because I'm not into soccer although British.

#42 Posted by Tobyus (111 posts) -

Since Watch Dogs is getting delayed to next year, which is "good?" for the Swedish people, only I care about, haha. So at launch i can save up to X1, Ghosts, Watch Dogs, Black Flag and Dead Rising.

#43 Posted by Demyx (3240 posts) -

It was supposed to be Watch Dogs, now I guess I wait for Infamous.

On the Xbox One? You might be waiting quite some time.

#45 Posted by MisterBigMack (37 posts) -

I am surprised the amount of people saying dead rising 3,

I pre ordered a couple of weeks ago and there were no create your bundle on the website, just various ones and the only one that kinda interested me was the day one console and dead rising 3, even though it had kinda gone off my radar

So will be getting dead rising 3, fifa 14 is already in the box, and was going to get watch dogs but most probs be either call of duty or forza as well

#46 Posted by Vanick (333 posts) -

If I keep my pre-order I will probably pick up Dead Rising 3 and maybe Forza 5. Looking forward to checking out some of the download only games like Crimson Dragon, Killer Instinct, and maybe Lococycle. Also interested in checking out the Xbox Fitness thing. Oh and I might rent Ryse.

Well, as of this morning, considering what has been announced, what's been cancelled, and everything in-between, here's my list:

  • Battlefield 4 (Love me some BF)
  • Forza 5 (/drool. And it has all the Top Gear UK talent...and the Stig)
  • Killer Instinct (Love KI/fighting games...hopefully this is worthy of the name)
  • Dead Rising 3 (Love the DR series, Watch_Dogs delay sealed this one)
  • Crimson Dragon (Panzer Dragoon!!!!)

And I will most likely be GameFly'ing the following:

  • NBA2K14 (looks amazing, I love basketball, but I suck at basketball games)
  • RYSE (until proven otherwise, still looks like a great tech demo)
  • Need for Speed (looks like another fun arcade-y racing game)
  • Madden 25 (gotta see what Madden looks like)
  • Assassin's Creed IV (need to finish III first, but I'm slightly excited for this)
  • FIFA 14 (gotta see next-gen FIFA)

Hopefully they'll have a bunch of digital offerings other than LocoCycle and Zoo Tycoon at launch, and I'm guessing we'll hear about those as we get closer to launch...but that's my list as it stands today.

edit: incorrectly listed Watch_dogs as "cancelled", changed to "delayed"
