PS5/XB2 Probably won't have good launch games

Will probably see Halo Infinite/Last of Us 2 two mediocre cross gen games that are held back by the original ps4/xb1 as launch titles. Meh.

They will get a few yearly titles that will also be cross gen like AssCreed and CoD. Meh.

We won't see any of the true potential of these systems for awhile.

The Switch launched with Breath of the Wild which had a 105% attach rate more people bought the game than had the system. Since nobody owned the wiiU it was basically exclusive.

So yeah no real point in buying the ps5/xb2 at launch guys. I'm sorry but its just the way it is maybe 1-2 years after they come out they'll get some good real games. Developers all haven't even said there working on ps5/xb2 exclusively so I guess they don't want to do anything big on it yet.

Uh, BOTW was targeted for Wii U but with all the delays it had, Nintendo just decided to port it for Switch as part of the launch titles.

Back on topic. I wasn't gonna buy PS5 launch day anyways until a year later. Either way, I will buy PS5 eventually. PC/Switch will do it and I'll still have my PS4 since I still got much to do on that system anyways.

@davillain-: yeah man just stick to the ps4 original / xbone and switch :) I'm sure they will get good games eventually and just not worth it at launch.

Switch is definitely worth it at launch tho wowsers that little beast.

You can say the same thing about the Xbox one.

Scarlett will have Halo Infinite and that’ll be a must have game for me. I’m sure there’ll be at least a couple more games that I’ll be happy to get as well.

When a new console generation begins the launch games usually bomb. So Playstation 5 and Xbox scarlet launch games won't be the best as developer still have to really get a handle on the new hardware.

At least Xbox has Halo 6 to debut as a launch game. Still will get PS5 first even if the launch games bomb.

Pretty much expected. New console launches generally are lackluster for the first couple years. Even the Switch was lackluster for the first couple years beside a couple major releases. Only now is it having its best year yet. Just make it the expectation when you are an early adopter of a new console, you will have to endure a smaller library for a while before it picks up traction.

@ProtossRushX: unlike other companies a plethora of exclusives are guaranteed for Nintendo and Sony

Why not always buy those systems day 1 and play the upgraded cross/next gen games until the exclusives come ?

Any long time sony fans knows theres never nothing to worry about when it comes to new systems.

Except money in some cases lol

Except.... now hear me out....

... we have no idea what the games at launch will actually be. We don't know what the final specs for next gen are going to be. Hell... we don't even know what the boxes will look like.

I honestly don't care. If i buy a PS5 at launch, it will be to play my massive PS4 library with better performance and no loadings. Great new games come with time.

Has any ps/Xbox ever had a decent launch lineup!? Bought the PS3 at launch and was several years before any playable exclusive came out..

@davillain-:

But from what I gathered, the ps5 will be "fully" backwards compatible with ps4 games. With this you still wouldn't jump in on a ps5?
