Title implies it's xbox one exclusive or something. Instead it's being confirmed along with every other system right?

Why title it like that.

Visuals looks good. BUT, we expect MORE from next gen at this point.

This should include the old as hell FMV game with the mouse hole video screen.

The last few Sherlock Holmes games didn't have great graphics, they look like cleaned up Xbox graphics so these are a step up.

I would totally believe those are 360's screenshots. 


So, for the next 8 years we are stuck with this level of graphics???

Ok, this headline is complete BS

As for the game...  I love Sherlock Holmes, but this game looks like early last gen, doesn't it?

Wow, I just go Makuch'd bad.  He knew the headline would sound like this was an X1 exclusive.

As for the game itself, I'm willing to bet someone will want to shoehorn MP into this game.

Gotta love Sherlock Holmes. His character even in the books was so likable.

The screenshots look incredible. I hope this turns out to be a great game. I'm always thrilled for experiences that don't look like CoD Advanced Warfare. ;)

This has great potential. I'd love to see this be like LA Noire, but set in early 1900s London.

I hope that they add console specific features for this gen. Of course better visuals would be great on X1 & PS4, but adding Kinect, gamepad or motion control support as well as upping the graphics would be very appealing.

Great. Sherlock can finally solve the mystery of the Xbone's 1080p issue

Pshhhhh. Sherlock doesn't have the stupidity to even think that anyway, the man's a detective!

@berserker66666 well, it took 5 years for the mystery of the PS3's inability to match a weaker 360 to be solved, but apparently Sony fans didn't care about that.

@berserker66666  - Maybe he can find the reason for 1080p games in the Pony PS4, I don't know why 1080p is so important to run indie games...

@berserker66666 I dunno pal, when I look at the PS4 exclusive lineup I don't exactly see any of that 1080p 60fps honey that everyone has been going on about.

@berserker66666  That was good. It is like a minefield in the comments section. Your not expecting it and then BOOOOOM!!!!

Not Next Gen since be out ofr ps3,xbox360 as well so Its not next gen .

cvantu

@playstationzone well, that pretty much means that no game aside from Knack, Infamous, and Killzone, on the PS4, is not next gen. You truly are the biggest idiot of the Gamespot trolls.

@cvantu @playstationzone  no game except for Knack, Infamous, or Killzone is next-gen. You need to think before you speak cvantu. If a game is available on lower platforms it is not truly a next gen game. Its funny how you insult someone when you, yourself, cannot grasp such a simple concept.
