Poll: With Knack and Killzone flops, does the xbone seem more appealing? (194 votes)

Yes 37%
No 61%

Now that highly publicized Playstation 4 launch games have been a huge world wide disappointment with a general critical consensus of "meh" does this monumental failure now make the xbone appeal as the hero you deserve? Because it can take it?

Not really, these consoles will be around for 7-8 years, launch games aren't a big deal.

Long term Sony looks to have the better 1st party support and superior multiplats.

A pity for early adopters that the launch exclusives are poor, but there are some decent third party titles and some interesting f2p and DD games to keep them going till the big exclusives start rolling in.

I always expected Knack to flop hard, but I'm surprised at Killzone. I was expecting a meta of around 80-85, considering KZ2 + KZ3 had metas of 91 and 84 respectively. That said, I'm still buying it.

We all knew those two games were going to be mediocre, just like Ryse and Dead Rising will be.

I think dead rising may end up being a good game from what I heard and GS likes ryse from what I heard.

No, It does not look appealing to buy less powerful hardware for more bucks son.

In the positive side of things, I would just wait for the unannounced games coming up on Sony's launch event in New York.

Cows will just start hyping the next unreleased exclusive now, like they always do. Eventually they'll get one that doesn't flop and we'll never hear the end of that when it does finally happen.

LOL! Cows can't even do what Dave did and rely on metacritic even though that isn't part of the meta. I cannot believe how much of a flop this is because deep down I expected it to score an 8 or higher. Cows didn't even have the balls to hype it themselves and it still flopped! bwahahah

The XB1 will never be appealing for $500.

It's either the PS4 or the PC for true Next-Gen gaming, with the PS4 representing the mid-range and the PC representing the high-end.

The XB1 is too expensive and it's best games (Titanfall) will be on PC anyway.

I think the 360's best game is Lost Odyssey and it got a 7.5. If someone doesn't play a game because it doesn't score 8+ is weak sauce.

It's harder to review RPG games and Killzone has always been poor aside from 2. I wouldn't touch a 7.0 FPS unless it actually looks innovative like Shadowrun (2007) did which scored 6.9 and was one of the best shooters ever made.

No, like I said before both consoles launch titles doesn't interest me. It's so bad that the Wii u interest me more. Infamous second son is the only game in the near future that I'm interested by for the ps 4. Super Mario 3d land for the Wii u. And as always nothing for the Xbox one

I guess i learned to embrace the flop years ago and a score is not going to deter me from playing a game I want to play. Killzone flopped, yes indeed. Still gonna play the hell out of it and especially it's coop and easily make it worth the $40 I spent for it,

You don't have to force yourself to enjoy it but I guess it's fine trying to justify the premature purchase. The single player is meant to be around 8 hours so I guess that's a positive thing

Xbox 1 always had the better launch game but still not enough to warrant buying one.

And borezone is borezone no surprises there although I expected it to get a 6.

I dont have to justify though, I know early on if I want to play a game and if its worth a purchase to me.

Early adopters get shafted, thats the way it is, with the Ps3 there where next to no games for the first year and the 360 had RROD, i am going to stick with my 360 and my gaming tablet and wait a couple of years then i will decide what to get.

it got 8 from ign

Both have bad launch line ups. XBone is still trailer trash, whereas Sony has legions of elite tier developers ready to usher in a new era of next generation experiences only possible on PlayStation 4

Marathon, not a sprint. Right now PS4 has:

- Better hardware

- More sales/hype

- Easier to develop for

- Better Multiplats

- Sony has more exclusive studios

Xbone may have a healthier launch but the PS4 will have the best library in a few months without a doubt.

It was pretty easy to see that this was going to happen at launch. The first real good exclusive for PS4 won't come until Infamous Second Son is released next year. After that it's just a long wait for Naughty Dog, Santa Monica, or Quantic Dream to come out with a title.

The pattern seems to be repeating itself from last gen. At the start 360 easily had the better exclusive lineup with games like Mass Effect, Dead Rising, Gears of War, Crackdown, etc. However as the generation went on, 360 exclusives became few and far between while Sony started churning them out left and right with games like Uncharted 2, Heavy Rain, God of War 3, Little Big Planet, Infamous, Metal Gear Solid 4, among quite a few others.

Long term I trust Sony to have the better first party lineup,especially for as long as they have Naughty Dog making games. Regardless I think most non-fan boys realized well in advance that Killzone was likely to be a dud.

It looks more appealing to me early on, for sure. There are just more exclusives there that interest me. But I think the PS4 will ultimately win out on that front with their first party.
