Funny enough I have all but the Indie game (because I hadn't heard about it) and I completly agree with this.

It was Killer Instinct that sold the console for me though :)

I really want to play Titanfall, but I have a Xbox 360 so could just get it on that or do I convince my wife that I "need" an Xbox one : )

The Halo games were enough for me to trade in my ps4 to get an Xbox One.  I had Killzone, Second Son, and MLB and got bored lastnight, bought the xbox one, sold the PS4 and haven't looked back since.

I found Sunset Overdrive missing, it is actually the reason why I am considering the XB1, the Demo by Insomniac was seriously sick!

Titanfall is the only one I'm interested in. One game is not enough to buy a new console for me. Hence no XBone in my home ;)

great show again Jess ;)

Dead Rising 3 & Titanfall are on PC, And if you want racing sims there's a ton of those on PC. Super Time Force is the only real exclusive out of all those games, and the PC has a ton of indies too, PC MASTER RACE!.......hl3 confirmed. Xbox is obsolete.

Forza 5 set a new bar for driving games, all the others now feel arcade like and just not the real deal

I have a PS4, Wii U, and Xbox One. Bought lot's of games for each each system has two great games and a bunch of meh titles. I'm underwhelmed. I just hooked up my PC to my TV and have been playing PC games ever since.

to be honest none of these are worth buying a XB1 for Forza 5 isn't as good as Forza 4 and has less features Titnfall is on the 360 and PC and Dead Rising 3 is coming to the PC too where it will look better and probably be better optimised as for the other game, it's a XBLArcade game

not that the PS4 has a lot to offer at the moment either Knack, Infamous and Killzone

in all honesty it's the Wii U that has the strongest current first party line up and the only reason to get a PS4 and XB1 is for the future releases (IE: end of 2014 to 2015 and beyond) because they offer nothing that you can't get on current gen systems at the moment

and before anyone says anything yes I do have a Wii U PS4 and XB1 because I got them for the future while I was able to afford them but both the PS4 and XB1 are sitting doing bugger all at the moment

Ok, I own 4 games for my One and Titanfall has been my only pick-up so far this year. I plan on buying Destiny, NHL 15, The Master Chief Collection and probably one more game this fall/winter. But if I were to buy one more game that is already out, or coming out before September, what should it be? Watch Dogs? Wolfenstein?

I actually play PVZ more than any other game right now.

I don't know why people are complaining that PS4 doesn't have any games? Xone has just as few as PS4. This video just proofs it, only top 4? Not even top 5? And still one of them was ugly indie game, I'm not saying that game can't be good, but when you are making games TOP FOUR to play and one of them isn't even blockbuster AAA  and two aren't even Xone exclusives then you have your proof that this system doesn't have any games either. Why it's always PS4 doesn't have any games, when it's clear Xone doesn't either?

So you mention only released exclusive titles that everyone knows and one is a racing which has a limited desire to buy an entire system over. Not impressed. Due to alot being Multiplat I would have to include them for PS4 simply because they also look better on PS4 for the same price. Why buy a platform for the same price that makes games look worse.


Oh and that commenter on PC to me was a bit of a joke. He rather pay more for outdated tech to have better looking games is an epeen move. Most people want good looking games for cheap. I am not saying PC doesn't make games look better but unless your just rolling in the money why purposely limti yourself and exclude exclusives? That rate buy both consoles so you can get all the exclusives.


PC gamers talk about how they can play ALL the older games but they keep missing they are left out of ALL the exclusives also. It's like religious person talking about their religion more than about God which was supposed to be the point of even having ANY religion. Both them and PC gamers misses the point.

Being one of the ones that hasn't decided on which console to get, This list of games doesn't help any.

Uh-oh!!!! Gamespot hasn't reported on it yet, but it looks like that new Phantom Dust card game is going to be Free To Play.

Bots, you despise Free To Play, don't you?

Sunset Overdrive is the only game that wants me to buy an X1, but I am afraid it would lose its exclusivity

Hey Jess, I'm honored to be quoted by you, thank you very much. I guess this E3 showed us once again, that it is all about the potential. The real next gen starts in 2015 :)

I have TitanFall on PC, and I plan to get Dead Rising 3 on PC.

I have Forza 2, 3, 4 and Horizon on Xbox 360, and I do think F5 looks nice, it's just not enough to get me to buy an XOne.  Maybe when the Halo collection comes out, I'll reconsider, though I also have the original releases, as well as Halo 1 and 2 on PC.

Great list, although, I would've placed Titanfall above Forza 5.

 XboxOne™ is GREAT! Why don't you tell us in the comments below why YOU think XboxOne™ is great too!!

Halo 5 has probably already done more and will continue to do more to drive sales of X1's then any other single game, feature or function and it's still a year and half away from release.

@DrDuncs 
I'm confused!!! you need to "convince"  your wife or Mum?

@travelbysoul Well... Dead Rising is still an exclusive since the PC version isn't out yet, and if Forza isn't an exclusive, I really don't know what is. And if that's your way of thinking about exclusives, I guess Halo isn't an exclusive either because Killzone also has guns and space... Seriously... 

Plus 

honestly, there's a lot of people favoring Forza over any other racing game (including myself)... looking forward to Project Cars though


Killer Instinct is also an AMAZING exclusive, and was the reason my first next gen console ended up being the Xbox One

@solitas777 Just wondering if you go to school or work, who on earth has time to play 3 consoles and a PC?

By damn I would have bought it lol

Then it's very easy to see what system has better exclusives :)

@snaketus no, PS4 has all the indies, Xbox One has actual full scale titles, big difference there

@Kinguard73 "Due to alot being Multiplat I would have to include them for PS4 simply because they also look better on PS4 for the same price. Why buy a platform for the same price that makes games look worse."


that might have been the case before but as time goes on the multiplats on both systems are basically the same now.

@Kinguard73 1. most xbox exclusives end up on pc anyway


2. as jawehawk-DK mentioned pc also has exclusives


3. pc has mods which can make not only the graphics better over time but can also completely change the gameplay experience also


4. pc games are cheaper than console games. usually £10 cheaper but sometimes £15 or even £20 cheaper. if you add up all the games you buy on pc and compare them to the price of consoles you will find the money you have saved from pc games being cheaper you could actually buy a games console to go with your pc lol.


5. pc is always ahead in technology


6. pc gives you access to the entire world wide web, consoles limit your access to the world wide web. although they have an internet browser it doesn't support flash and im pretty sure ps4 doesn't support html 5 either. so its pretty useless other than for reading purposes.


7. pc unlocks many things you can potentially do other than gaming. for instance, I can make music on my pc. I cannot do that on a console.

@Kinguard73  You do realise that PC's have exclusive games too, don't you?


I like how I'm doing it. A PC and the different Playstation consoles. Only miss out on a few Xbox exclusives that I genuinly want.

@Wicked869 man, it may sound fanboyish to you or whatever but take my word for it. just get a ps4, you won't regret it. you might not regret getting an xbox one, but by the looks of things xbox one doesn't have very much going for it atm so you might regret it. are you willing to pay more money on taking a chance, or would you rather pay cheaper and defo have no regrets?


if you are patient however then you could always just see how it plays out.

Aaronp2k

@Stinger78 well basically only reason to buy halo collection is for halo 3 then since halo 2 and halo 1 will look the same as pc on max graphics with mods installed and you already own them lol. so in other words, there are only 2 games what interest you for x1?

@enigmaticvortex It is a great system that for it's price over powers a PC. I mean just because Microsoft constantly tries to give their fans syrup instead of actual content does not mean the system itself isn't great. 

But being a PS4 fan also doesn't mean it's a better console than PS4.

Thanks @dexter-404, I ended up getting a bundle with both those games as digital downloads, it also came with Dead Rising 3 and Battlefield 4 all for the standard price with the Kinect which I thought was a pretty good deal.


While I'm not very good at it, I enjoy Titanfall.  This is the first time I've played online multiplayer, mostly due to poor internet in the past, so it's taking some getting used to not getting killed so much.  I think my early Kill to Death was as bad as 0.2 but is up to about 0.6 now.

I didn't this reply.  Why the confusion?  I'm married and sometimes it's better to run significant purchases past your other half.

@Aaronp2k  I have been leaning towards a PS4, I will soon have the money and then make a definitive choice. I wont try to save a buck when making a choice, I want to get one that I will enjoy and not regret buying.
