You sound butthurt. Probably because the PS4 is leading in both exclusives and multiplats.

Guess we will find out at E3 what the next big game is. I see cows are still insecure over TF though.

The next system update.

If people have to wait until November for the next excuse to get an Xbone the console is F-U-C-K-E-D.

Halo 5 or something?

Although apparently a killer app isn't supposed to sell systems or copies... or anything.

SW is so confusing in times of turmoil...

how did titan fall fall short? it sold a ton and got high scores, whats wrong with you? its a really fun shooter you should try it some time.

I don't know what the Xbox One's next "killer app" will be but Titanfall is actually really good. It didn't fail at anything.

I've been wondering that after I got Titanfall and realizing it wasn't my cup of tea.

E3 will hopefully show us the way.

343 is working on their second main Halo game with Halo 5, although I hope it's better than Halo 4 (good but not great).

Brand new studio Black Tusk canned their new IP and are working on GeoW 4.

Franchises that people love, albeit with new developers.

So.. its Gears... Halo.... and Forza again?

oh god -_-

Terrible :/

Umm to be clear neither xbox one nor PS4 have a AAA killer app at the time. Both have good games that pushed sales (titanfall and Infamous) and one system has an AAA exclusive (forza 5) on GS. Neither system however has an AAA killer app.

Metacritic shows that no big name exclusives for either system have reached AAA status. To be a critically acclaimed AAA killer app a game needs to be considered AAA across the industry not just here on GS. TLOU is what is considered an AAA killer app, in case you were trying to make that suggestion, there is nothing like that on xbox one.

No team working for Microsoft is worth licking Naughty Dog's boots. Same goes for Media Molecule and Sony Santa Monica.

@lglz1337: The "decline" in 360 games didn't occur until late 2010 (5 years after the gen started), and even then, that was only in reference to retail exclusives because XBLA was doing pretty well into 2012.

I enjoy Dead Rising 3, but I wouldn't say its "teh killer app" by any means. Still have to try Killer Instinct and Titanfall. Frankly, I think the 360/PS3 has waaaay more to offer right now than the current gen, which is kind of sad. Will probably get a PS4 very soon to check out Infamous: Second Son, though.

Halo, there's very little else on the horizon to sell systems imo. I expect Quantum Break to be a quality title though.

It don't matter bro. In all seriousness though, I think at E3 Microsoft will shock the world and announce a heap of quality exclusives. No joke I think they have some big surprises planned for us.

But who cares when the third party multiplats will be there to make both consoles worth while.

LOL cows get their first good game in Infamous and look at them go.

The PS4 is running on multiplats, indies and Infamous.

In the past cows have made it LOUD AND CLEAR multiplats and indies don't count as games.

Therefore this thread carries no weight.

Drastically short? It was the #1 selling game in March. lol!! It even outsold Infamous SS. What next for PS4? Everything has been delayed for that system it seems. When is the release date of Drive Club, Deep Down & The Order 1886 again? There's no real exclusives coming out until after the E3 it seems.

Nobody likes Halo and noone cares about Gears.

You're missing a lot but like I said initially... the retail market declined significant after 2010 but the digital offering was very strong there after. Vast majority prefer the retail lineup, so it's not surprising to see the digital offering on XBLA get overlooked or diminished in importance. Afterall, the Xbox 360 was ahead of the PS3 until 2013 when it came to the quality exclusive count (AAE+ count). 2013 was also the first year where the Xbox 360 did not receive an AAAE, ironically enough. It's also the year where the PS3 cleaned house and brought forth a nice selection of high quality games (after the desert that was 2012).

One of the problems Microsoft faced, a big one at that, was the inclusion of Kinect and the developer support being shifted away from making core games to the casual mantra. That is also a problem in that Microsoft's first party studio collection is smaller than Sony, and too much effort was thrown as third party exclusive deals (Most of which was lame exclusive DLC, or timed silliness). At the tail end of the generation, their limited first party already moved on to the next console so we ended up with a weak latter generation on the Xbox 360.

On the flip side, to play devil's advocate, Microsoft saw a surge in Xbox 360 sales from the Kinect device. So perhaps it was wise, economically speaking, to move forward with that judging by the success of the device and the hardware sales. Of course, now that many have had experience with it, the novelty factor is gone.

I don't see how it fell short to be honest. got a 9 here, was the top selling game in march with 1.5 million if i remember correctly, is the 2nd most streamed game on twitch behind LoL and has an 86 on MC.

With that said, I would wait for E3 but Halo, Quantum Break, Sunset overdrive, Forza Horizon 2 could all be that next killer app

Killer apps are games that push consoles. Besides Halo 5, I dont see any of those you mention doing that. If Titanfall couldnt make the X1 surpass the PS4, even for 1 month, I dont believe others will, well besides Halo, and even so, it'll only be for a couple of months.

Pushing consoles doesn't mean it has to surpass the PS4 in sales.

Even so, I dont see any of the titles moving a considerable number of consoles. They're new IPs and only very rarely new IPs move consoles. Xbox fans are putting their faith on Quantum Break but they forget Alan Wake sold very poorly on the 360, even thought it was a very high quality game imo

Forza Horizon 2 isnt a new IP but Forza Horizon sold below expectations on the 360 and if Forza 5 didnt move that many X1 what makes you think a sequel of a spin-off will?
