Xbox One games shipping now

Microsoft confirms Xbox One launch titles have gone gold and are currently heading to retailers.

Various Xbox One launch titles have gone gold and are now heading to manufacturing for mass production before being shipped to retailers, Microsoft announced today. These games include Forza Motorsport 5, Ryse: Son of Rome, Dead Rising 3, and Zoo Tycoon, among others.

"It's almost time. There are just 11 days to go before Xbox One's worldwide launch on Nov. 22, and all the wheels at Xbox HQ are in motion," Microsoft said.

Microsoft also released a number of images showing crates of Xbox One games in a warehouse. Labels on the packaging clearly state that the games are not to be sold before November 22.

Sony, on the other hand, began selling PlayStation 4 launch title Killzone: Shadow Fall, as well as various PS4 peripherals, in October, half a month ahead of the system's official launch on November 15.

When it's all said and done, I wonder who will have the best launch experience -- hardware, software, services, games, etc -- between Microsoft and Sony...

I got my PS4 5 days ago for some reason, i was expecting it at the 20th or something.

Anyways, i went to a PS official store nearby looking for games and found AC4 so i bought it...even though i have it on my PS3, and i can tell you this, the graphics are gorgeous!

F***  you 720p COD Xbone!

720p @ 30fps  Dead Rising 3....so much for next gen eh?  Forza 5, The majority of the content cut out to make room for more DLC.  Have to pay xbox live gold to unlock majority of the features.  Im sure BF4 on next gen will be as broken and unplayable as PC and current gen version....No thanks microsoft, Ill stick to PC.  Your Halo and Gears of War exclusives dont intrigue me in the slightest.

If only either console had a game that could justify the $400 or $500 purchase of the console on launch day

Oh I cant wait to hear the Xbots rage when Ryse gets slammed by critics as we all expect.

If you'll evaluate what is the best new nextgen platform this month, you're pretty dumb.

To evaluate the platforms properly, we have to wait, at least, one year after launch.

Everything before this will sound like a dumb Nostradamus wannabe, regardless of the side.

The PS4 has one game. Killzone. Plain and simple. Knack doesn't count, well it does if your in the 6-12 year old age bracket. Killzone will need at least a 9, if I am to pick my Ps4 preorder. Worst launch ever.

You buy nothing until it's review from  reputable sources. Buying games before a review is one thing, but before the console is even released? MORONIC!

as an early critic of the Xbox's "media central" philosophy, I am very much blown away by this technology. However, as impressive as it is, it is not what I am looking for in a gaming console. That being said, I hope the PS4's UI has a similar degree of navigational ease.

I wonder how much money Microsoft paid various outlets to get positive reviews for Ryse and Dead Rising 3, I guess we'll know in a week or two.

At least, Microsoft can deliver your games to retailers, not like Sony, that only have indie games. There is no differences between Playstation 4 and Ouya, they just have indie titles.

@VakarianGirl I believe that way back in the '90s -- the middle ages of gaming -- when software was finished the developer would burn it onto a gold disc to be shipped off for duplication and distribution. Unlike other discs that were burned up until that point, the gold disc symbolized software that was ready to ship.

@xXxIRyanxXx for people like me that have traded in their ps3 and only have pc to go on i think the line up is quite good AC4,KZSF,BF4,NFS and knack i think that will be enough for now

@prats93 From all the information I gathered, Ryse is a game that should get 6 tops. It's that weak.

@Garm31 ive played knack its like a bargain game with next gen graphics not worth 50 dollars,i wouldn't buy just killzone for the ps4 its not worth it wait till infamous second son and watch dogs comes out in april,xbox one rules ive played forza,dead rising,ryse,battlefield 4 and kinect rivals

scgarfield

@Garm31 I'm a moron cause I want some games to play on day 1? Its not that difficult to make an educated guess at what games will probably be good and wgat ones wont. Eb games has a 7 day satisfaction guarantee so if a game sucks that much I can return it for store credit.

So if they post negative reviews it's the truth, and if they post positive reviews it's because Microsoft paid them off. OK, got it.

Just out of curiosity, what is it like at the asylum?

@Daian Can't say specifcally because of a NDA, but I can say it's in the millions of bottles of Nuka-Cola. Dem' caps.

Looking forward to dead rising 3, it seems like a fun P*ss about and kill stuff game...

Ryse looks like it's utter shite though :)

@Diegoctba Dont knock Indie games!!! Most Indie games are 10-20x better than most the crap EA and activision spews out these days.  And they actually work on launch day, unlike most EA titles.

@Diegoctba u're gonna have to try harder with your trolling, nobody here is THAT stupid.

@richthequick @Garm31 Next gen graphics ?  It looked like *** from what I saw of it.  Now I will say though I loved the game play but wish the difficulty was ramped up more and that the enemies right from the beginning had more health cuz then that game would be total win.

@scgarfield @Garm31 I kinda think you are. A console gen will last at least 7 years. So, if you're not buying both, it's stupid to buy one day one.

@Stevo_the_gamerI didn't imply u guys too, more like smaller sites to raise the Metacritic average. And IGN of course :)).

@Unbiased-Gamer u call it propaganda, I call it knowing the status quo and how things are done.

@Demanufactur3 I feel like they took a colorful fun zombie game and turned it into another brown action game. I'm on the fence but I'm not optimistic.

@e424pd5 @prats93 Knack looks more like a Mario+Lego wannabe, not a great sign either. Gameplay-wise, Ryse looks like Enslaved, or another button masher. Buying a console solely on it's day one exclusives is kinda dumb. Because in June of 2014 one platform might release a game changer exclusive...

e424pd5

@prats93 So it's pretty much a bloodier/prettier Knack? Launch titles are almost always week. At least there's Killzone and Dead Rising to look forward too

@blackace @Demanufactur3 @Daian Most of the media that doesn't have NDA already said that Ryse is a 6-score tops.

Dead Rising 1 and 2 were dumb, and nobody believes that 3 will be different.

Stop being a fanboy, and let's discuss next-gen properly, without fanboyism and corporativism.

@Daian @blackace Good thing you have read up on the game RECENTLY, because if you did you would KNOW that's not what it is at all lol.  Classic fantard.  I'm not saying the game will be good or bad, but I read up on everything and know where it's "at" before I comment on it.

IGN had a good write up on the final build where they got to play a lot more of the game that hasn't been shown yet and they really liked it.  Which is saying something because up until that they weren't fans of it at all.

@Daian @H4num4n  

GOW is well recieved by critics and maybe Ryse gets the one or other decent review. I wouldn't condemn it just yet.

That said, as a huge fan of hack and slay game i find many other titles way better than the GOW games :)

Daian

@H4num4n never said I was a big fan of that game. And come one, that game does everything it does better than most others in its genre and I only played a part of the first.

" just a bunch of QTEs in a linear game"

You described God of War. Just sayin.

@blackace it LOOKS good but it probably plays like crap, just a bunch of QTEs in a linear game. Lots of potential probably wasted.
