Poll: If X1 doesn't release a top AAA exclusive this year, will it.. (56 votes)

yes 50%
no 50%

be impossible to end up 1st place this gen? Even though there's a $400 SKU, MS still has the disadvantage of being the weakest hardware. So they only way they can win is with games. But will it be too late? I think so. The PS4 is already dominating as it is and Halo doesn't really have the same appeal as it used to so waiting for next year is not that motivating.

Nope. It won't end up number 1 for other reasons. Not releasing a AAA exclusive (which is pretty unlikely) won't do much.

nah it could still win but i wouldn't bet any money on it.

unless the odds were 10000 to one. if you get offered 10000 to one on anything - you take it (Kevin Malone).

When has one AAA made or broken a gen?

Gears of War made the PS3 look silly back in 2006 yet that system still caught up.

Microsoft and Sony are much smarter than System Wars gives them credit for. A few games won't swing it one way or the other.

One game never wins a console war unless maybe that game is Wii Sports.

So let's see how well Kinect Sports Rivals does http://i.imgur.com/EFrmZfL.png

@Floppy_Jim: I stand corrected. Wii Sports is the exception indeed.

It was never going to finish 1st no matter what they did. Its destined for a distant 2nd place finish.

#7 Edited by super600 (30658 posts) -

The PS4 won't have an AAA exclusive this year either. Expect AA games to be released this year mostly.

#8 Edited by Gue1 (9985 posts) -

xbox was never going to be first anyway. It doesn't matter what kind of games they release, if they couldn't stomp the PS3 then it will never be able to do so.

Less games, worse graphics, worse online, worse controller, way more expensive, total domination in one of the biggest video game market (NA)... I don't think a setting like this will ever gonna be repeated by Sony. Like seriously, for the first 3 years Xbox had the most games in every single genre including more Japanese games in general! Capcom, Square, Namco, MistWalker were all in bed with MS. And even with all that the PS3 continued to outsell the X360 on WW sales almost every single month.

Nah. As much as SW would like it, nothing about the X1/PS4 battle will be decided this year. Not sales. Not Games.

Sit back and chillax. It's gonna be awhile...

If he is talking about budget I doubt driveclub's budget is the budget of an AAA exclusive(but it still may be one, but that's only one game) and no one knows if the order will release this year. We don't have a set date for that game yet.

One game doesn't win the gen.

At least the XOne has an AAAE. How long do we have to wait for the PS4s? LOL

#15 Posted by cainetao11 (17555 posts) -

It already is. At what point did people start to believe Xbox would outsell PS world wide? I never believed they would.

Shouldn't you be more worried about whether or not the PS4 will get a AAAE this year?.

#20 Posted by TLHBO (8318 posts) -

Xbox won't have a good exclusive Microsoft is to content to rehash trash like Halo and Forza for the gen. When they finally step outside their comfort zone we end up with garbage like dud rising, Ryse and killer instink.

The days of Perfect Dark, Conker, Dead or Alive, Rallisport Challenge, Bioware RPGs and Ninja Gaiden are long gone. Xbox is dead.

THE ONE is going to get several AAA titles this year. Not to worry.

give it another 2 years like i did the ps3?

plus the x1 will never take 1st place no matter what happens.

And Sony is content to "rehash trash" like Infamous and Killzone? I guess so...

Forza is arguably the gold standard of racing sims and has frankly left Gran Turismo in the dust.

Halo is probably the single most influential game of this millennium.

Calling them "trash" essentially voids your entire argument.

Yes, everyone is entitled to their own opinion...but some opinions are so ridiculous they're irrelevant. Like preferring to eat dog food over Filet mignon. Basically wrong.

Infamous - 2009 Infamous 2 - 2011 Infamous:SS - 2014

Killzone 2 - 2009, Killzone 3 - 2011, Killzone: SF - 2013

Halo 3 - 2007, Halo ODST - 2009, Halo Reach - 2010, Halo Anniversary 2011, Halo 4 - 2012, and likely Halo 2hd this year. Thats not even counting games like halo wars or spartan assault.

Forza 2 - 2007, forza 3 - 2009, Forza 4 - 2011, Forza Horizon - 2012, Forza 5 - 2013, and no doubt some rehash this year.

Microsoft has very little left after they killed off so many studios or lost them to EA/Activision. So they just run these two franchises into the ground.

Also saying Halo is the single most influential game of this millennium? lol did you start gaming on Xbox by any chance?

#31 Edited by SambaLele (5418 posts) -

No way to know, but I wouldn't bet on it winning this gen.

MS has yet to dominate a console generation and I don't think one game is going to help it achieve that.

@super600: Im pretty sure Driveclub has an AAA budget and The Order has had a fall release window for months now.

Stop talking out of your ass.

#34 Edited by xhawk27 (7316 posts) -

The Xbox One has Sunset Overdrive and maybe Quantum Break before the end of the Year if the Rumor E3 list is true.

The order can still be moved to next year if sony does not think the game is ready to be released.

Nope, started gaming on the NES.

What single game after 2000 has had a larger impact on gaming? Other than World of Warcraft, I can't think of another serious competitor. GTA? Nope.

It's solely responsible for establishing FPS's as the dominant genre on consoles for the past decade.

GTA nope? now you're just trolling.

Have you not noticed the fact that as GTA gets bigger and bigger more and more games are going open world? and they're all following the GTA template? don't kid yourself GTA has been a far bigger success than Halo and is far more influential. It might hurt you as a lemming to here that but it's true. Halo is on a downward spiral anyway due to MS running it into the ground. Lol at the online numbers for Halo 4.

#38 Edited by PinkieWinkie (1363 posts) -

@super600: Your point? All that is is speculation. You said there won't be any AAA games released this year and you are wrong.

#39 Posted by speedfreak48t5p (7799 posts) -

Xbone has no games.

#40 Posted by jer_1 (7451 posts) -

No point in worrying who wins a fucking console gen, I'm only here for the games kids.

I want them all to have something fun to play.

#41 Posted by kinectthedots (1915 posts) -

Neither console has any real AAA exclusives at this point.

You can point to GS scores for hype ownage if you want but there are a few games that have received AAA scores from various individual sites but true critically acclaimed games (games that achieved an over all AAA rating from the majority of critics MC) are not to be found on either system at the time.

Even Killzone 2, a game that many people love to throw jabs at achieved AAA status on MC and the much hyped Titanfall wasn't even able to do that.

Getting AAA scores here a GS are nice an all but none of the AAA scores GS has given out for exclusives this gen except for Super Mario 3D world have been certified as credible by the rest of the gaming community.

It will be interesting to see what the first true AAA exclusive game ends up being from PS4 or xbone and which system gets it.

"to here that"? I assume you mean "hear"? And I'm not a lemming. I literally haven't played a game on xbox in years as I exclusively game on PC, though I do intend on buying both the ps4 and XB1 by the end of 2014 as there are games on both I'm interested in.

Have you not noticed that the single largest genre on consoles is FPS? What game started that phenomenon? Halo did. Yes, there were FPS games on consoles before Halo just as there were open world games before GTA, but Halo was the catalyst the proved FPS games on console could compete with PC. 16 player LAN matches with your friends in Halo:CE was as close to gaming nirvana as I've ever gotten.

I agree with you that the relative importance of Halo has diminished in recent years. That's simply because other shooter series have ridden in on the coat tails and taken it's place, namely Call of Duty.

#46 Posted by BigBadBully (628 posts) -

Xbox One is fine, the exclusives are great and have replayability especially a game like dead rising 3 with co-op. PS4 exclusives are lacking fun. Imagine if Infamous had co-op..... With xbox one being weaker, the software on the one is a lot more fun than ps4 exclusives with singleplayer focus.

#47 Posted by coasterguy65 (5964 posts) -

Now that the prices will be the same come June, it's really going to depend on which console manufacturer supports their console with the best games. Sony has done a great job of doing it in the past, but MS has the money to out bid Sony on games if they really take the console race seriously. MS did a great job at the beginning of last gen, but fell off when most of the original Xbox people left. Phil could be leading the brand in the right direction, but only time will tell. E3 will tell a lot. We can be pretty sure of one thing...this E3 probably won't be filled with Kinect garbage like 2012's.

When determining AAA status GS scores are all that matters.......on GS. Keep trucking on El Tormented and maybe 1 day you won't look like a complete fool.
