@jhonMalcovich:

Doesn't the PS4 have to actually launch before you can make a comparison?

#52 Posted by Obviously_Right (5093 posts) -

i think Xbox One's launch lineup might be the worst I've ever seen actually. Worse exclusives than PS4 and inferior multiplats to top it off.

I do agree that Sony is not aggressive with its push for next generation, from a business stand point, i can actually see why. But in terms of the line ups itself, there will be atleast from the part of third party publishers, a plethorea of available games on next generation consoles at launch, something previous gen and WiiU can boast about.

Assassins Creed Black Flag

Call of Duty Ghost

Battlefield 4

FIFA14 and all the sport games

Indie games

@Shewgenja: wow... The Drive club delay is really messing with you bro. Buy an xone so you can bathe in exclusives from day one.... No one wants to wait till day 500 for a decent exclusive.

Having less games at launch can actually be a good thing. It means you have more to look forward to as the console goes on instead of pushing everything out on Day 1 and then getting bored quickly

Will "Just Wait' be returning as the cows' catchphrase ?

It very well could be... hope the PS4 can secure an AAAE sooner than the PS3 could! :D

yeah ps4 doing so bad it destroyed xbone in preorders and killzone alone has more preorders than all of xbone exclusives combined. TLHO

Its just hilarious having watched cows decimate the wii U for having a poor game line-up. Even now they try to spin it as a positive.

"a delayed game is a good thing because it means they can make it awesome".

No mention of the fact they have simply failed to hit their one and only launch deadline. Its might not be ultimately detrimental to the games themselves but its bad business. Poor form from these devs.

Wait so would it be a better "busines" to release a broken/mediocre game? I'm getting on odd sense of damned if they do, damned if they don't when I hear people make these comments.

No need to be facetious, its obviously better if they delivered a quality title on time. These consoles have been in development for years and the fact is they have failed to meet the deadlines. If thats the fault of Sony or the fault of the lackluster development team I dont know. Its not something that I think can be excused. Its bad business.

Games, or IT projects in general, miss dead lines all the time. I wouldn't call a developer lack luster for deciding they want a better product over rushing out something that isn't up to their standards/goals.

I would say that's good business, I have more faith in a developer and publisher that know when to hold back.

Im not going into a ridiculous back and forth with you. Im not arguing that they should release a sub par product. Im saying they shouldnt have got themselves in this situation, and the fact they are in this situation means someone dropped the ball and that IS poor business practice.

If you think thats fine then great for you buddy. Enjoy the wait.

Im not buying a PS4 anyway so couldnt care less.

KZSF alone owns the entire WiiU launch lineup and I haven't even added BF4 to the mix yet. Nothing will ever top WiiU's launch mediocrity.

@always_explicit: I didn't say it was great, I'm saying it's better. As someone who works in IT, delays are something I'm very familiar with.

Nah, WiiU is only second to the Saturn when it comes to Launches.

#64 Edited by Kiro0 (1173 posts) -


Both the PS4 and the Xbox One have really mediocre launch lineups, but I can't say I'm surprised. I don't care much for any of the exclusives either console offers aside from Second Son and The Order 1886, neither of which are launch titles. I am more interested in whatever Naughty Dog or Epic pulls out next than just about anything else just due to their insane track records lately. Hoping Sony Santa Monica can step it up again after how disappointing God of War: Ascendance was. All that Sony-loving rhetoric aside I don't see myself getting either console any time soon, everything's still best on PC.

Terrible launch game for the PS4

#66 Posted by cain006 (8625 posts) -

Scribblenauts unlimited is also on pc. And New Super Mario Bros. U is pretty good. Much better than New Super Mario Bros. 2, that game is so uninspired.

#67 Edited by bbkkristian (14946 posts) -

No, people are going to buy the PS4 for the hardware, to show off to the community that they made the jump to "next gen". They aren't buying it for games.

Nah, WiiU is only second to the Saturn when it comes to Launches.

The Saturn had Virtua Fighter, Panzer Dragoon, Clockwork Knight, and Daytona USA. The Wii U wishes it had that type of lineup.

#69 Posted by Puckhog04 (22606 posts) -

Like with every Console launch, games will be stagnant. This isn't any different with the PS4. Literally the only title worth playing that is exclusive is KZ. Which is another reason I'm waiting for next year to pick one up (as well as Xbox One only having Dead Rising 3). They need more games. I'm a sucker for a zombie game so I bought the Wii U at launch along with ZombiU...don't regret it to this day at all. ZombiU is one of the better titles I've played all generation. If Dead Rising hasn't been in such a downfall since Dead Rising Off the Record, I probably would've gotten an Xbox One at launch. But, as of now, I'm waiting on both till next year.

No. It has the best version of madden, nba 2k, assassin creed, Battlefield, Call of Duty Ghost, among other games. Multiplats still exist

The PC has the best versions actually.

I don't think it's that terrible of a launch; it's especially good if you haven't owned a gaming PC in the last 2 years. However, I have and thus have these problems with the PS4:

1. The hardware is weaker than I'd like (900p BF4)

2. The only exclusive I like is Resogun

3. The only other games available are either better on PC (Watch Dogs, BF4, etc) or have been available on PC for a long ass time (Planetside 2, Blacklight Ret., etc)

Multiplats still exist, but if you're looking to them to validate the purchase of a new console; Something is wrong.

I think a lot were buying it for Watch Dogs. With Watch Dogs being delayed, that was a huge deciding factor regarding waiting or not.

Sure, 'cause the ps4 won't be getting the better version of all those awesome triple A multiplats that the wii u won't. :D

Cry some more.

They are both quite poor. But launches have been like that for quite a while. The most recent good launch titles were Xbox with Halo, and the N64 with Mario 64. But Killzone and a New! series 2D Mario platformer doesn't generate that much buzz for me.

#79 Posted by Mozelleple112 (6657 posts) -

Xbox One and Wii U both have worse launches.

#81 Edited by SirSlimyScott (266 posts) -

Many of the great games are coming out early 2014,so I suggest you wait until then if you really can't be bother to get it on day one, also War Thunder; my friend loves that game on PC, and I wish to know why.
