Watch Dogs 2 will not release 2016. It's going to be delayed 100%.

Not at all bothered by Recore as all I have seen is a cgi trailer. Scalebound I kind of figured when they said Holidays 2016. That's such a late window that I figured it would get pushed back to 2017. Man I hope he is wrong about Horizon: Zero Dawn. Please don't push that back and please be good.

@cainetao11: Horizon and Uncharted 4 are the only games I need. The others are just gravy.

@wkadalie: I know nothing of Uncharted 4's narrative but I am buying it day one because I know the devs have made quality games for me to play in the past. Remedy is a quality dev, having created Max Payne, Alan Wake so I am on board day one with QB.

@cainetao11: So you didn't play the past games? Get the Uncharted collection. The games still hold up. Except for number 1.

@wkadalie: I was a big fan from 2007 when the first came out. That still doesn't mean I know what the story for A thieves end will be. Which thief? Sully, Nate, new character his brother? Do they mean no longer being a thief or one or more dying? My point is, I've seen enough gameplay of QB to know I like what I see and the narrative isn't first and foremost for me with gaming. That's my primary with film or literature. But to each their own.

@pheonix8972: Wow, Gamespots messaging system is a piece of crap. I can't seem to reply to you without an error. What I was saying is, if you do count remasters, the PS4 still has more exclusives in 2015, it's not a big deal though, the other guy was wrong that's all. There's a LOT of games on Xbox One and PS4 that are not on Wii U.

@pheonix8972:So we are counting remasters and games that haven't even been remastered and just shoved on a disc? Killer Instinct is the only exclusive you mentioned, and that's not a 2015 release. If we count remasters then... The Order 1886, Bloodborne, MLB The Show, Until Dawn, Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, God of War III, Uncharted Collection, Fat Princess Adventures and more. I know which list is bigger. Wouldn't let me reply to you, so had to do i this way.

I love my Wii U but I'm starting to think Nintendo would be better off making Zelda an NX exclusive. They need a big title to move units at launch and ensuring the game is compatible with both systems will only hold it's potential back. If Zelda does hit the Wii U, it will most likely be the end of the console's life cycle and I just don't think many people will be looking to invest in old hardware at that point, especially if they can get the same game on a brand new NX. They should make the best game possible for the new system and launch strong.

I just don't get all the hate on Watch Dogs. I really enjoyed it, more than enough to give it my GOTY award for 2014. From the smack I have heard/read about, a lot of it boiled down to, "oh, this doesn't look as good as the vertical slice (here's looking at you, Danny) Ubi showed a couple of E3s back, so it's a big letdown. Really!!? I thought it still looked and ran great overall but most importantly, the gameplay was a lot of fun - with quite a few unique and varied systems and activities to get into.

Some people also complained that the lead character - Aiden - had no personality. While he could be gruff at times, the man experienced some serious family tragedies and stresses, and besides, he was a hacker! He was accustomed to keeping a good part of his identity, motives, etc. a secret. Definitely a big underrated game in my book.

@electronic_eye: what hate? Nobody said Watch Dogs is a bad game. Gamespot graded it "Great". It was still disappointing though. That game had a lot of potential and the concept is very intriguing, but they didn't really do anything with it. The whole mass surveillance idea is a great topic to explore but the game doesn't really say anything about it other than "hey, this is a thing!". The main campaign has almost nothing to do with the surveillance system anyway. It's mostly a revenge/kidnapping story. I liked what Watch Dogs wanted to be, not so much what it was. The hacking mechanics were good and I liked the way they blended it with stealth mechanics. But those mechanics still weren't very engaging. I would love to see them expand on it and deliver a good campaign that properly explores to the surveillance ideas.

@electronic_eye: I agree, I had a lot of fun with Watch Dogs whe n it released. I couldn't fault it in any way other than the drinking game being too though at the last couple of trials. People seemed to follow the trend of others hating on it as far as I can see. It was way better than any Saints Row game of late and those games continue to rate highly across the board.

@electronic_eye: Well, when you compared the game to what was promised in E3. The game was utter crap. And well it doesn't matter what they have showed next, because the amount of hype they built, purposefully so, by ranting about the graphical fidelity, and then they delayed the laucnh by 6 months or something and what you get was nothing close to what was shown.

Also the complaints with the character is that Aiden didn't fit the story-line well. I mean that the serious story they were trying to put through with aiden just wasn't selling me when they had a bunch of comical stuff going on with the digital Chicago, especially with the profiling system. Hope that helps why many didn't like the game as much.

@rohitv2312: Exactly...its not that the game was bad....but it was far, far less than was promised. It's a bit like Colonial Marines. If you never read or seen any of the footage and images shown prior to release then you would be like "its an ok game". However, for people who had followed this game dev. , they completely got misled when the final product came out.

Zelda will be released alongside the NX whenever they decide to release it. Which I believe will be this holiday season or early next year when there is less competition.

By the the you read this Half Life 3 will have released.

So you don't see a Reason to buy a Xbox One since PS4 has so many exclusives and not shitty as hell controllers ????

Oh let's not forget the 1080p 960p who cares yes its like 100 pixels that make that a different experience you are obsessed with the pixels and the layout and menus are also amazing !

Lets see if it is your beloved Sony that delays more games !

@Huglyone: my statement is based on the fact that there aren't many games I want to play on the XBox one. I was actually interested in Scalebound which is an Xbox One exclusive and would trigger me to buy an Xbox One to play it. I'm not a big Halo or Gears of War. So until there are games I want to play on the XBox one I personally don't have a reason to buy an XBox One.

@Huglyone: Yeah I was perplexed at that comment as well. As someone who has all consoles, PS4 delivered less exclusives than anyone else in 2015 (including Wii U). Thats pure fanboyism imo.

@skemaal: as mentioned above purely based on what games I like to play and also what most of my friends play on for multiplayer games like Destiny etc. I currently don't have any Xbox One exclusive games I want to play on an Xbox One and thus won't be buying one until I have that reason. One of which I felt like might have been Scalebound.

@skemaal: totally agree, PS4 has been very disappointing for exclusives. it felt like Sony just gave up in 2015 and knew it would sell great without the exclusives. the big problem is i feel like the PS4 runs multi-platform games better than X1 does. There's a big difference in graphics on PS4 versions that really bothers me. The install times on X1 games also irritates the crap out of me.

@clonewar2: Yes that's been the issue with Sony. Sony even apologized for it so its not like its something made up. It's not that nothing at all come out but what came out was more meh than anything. Multiplatform was great as usual.

For XB1, I feel they had a great year of rebuilt from what Don Mattrick had destroyed. I don't know if they will ever be able to recoup that but its not like they are not trying. The console is very enjoyable. I agree though, install is awful, its the total reverse to what the 360 was vs the PS3. Trick though, turn off your wifi before install, it works faster.

For Wii U, I invite people to do a little search on all the release titles this year. You would be surprised. To name a few: Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, Mario Party 10, Splatoon, Mario Maker, Yoshi;s Wolly World, Rodea The Sky Soldier, Fast Racing Neo, Devil's Third, Xenoblade Chronicles X, Mario Tennis, Fatal Frame, etc. All exclusives...oh yeah and none of these games were broken or had GBs of day one patch.

@skemaal: yeah, I miss the old PS1, PS2 eras where every week there would be new games. There was so much choice that it was hard to decide. and there's none of this BS of constantly delayed games, DLC, F2P, more remakes, remasters, ports, and more indie games BS. the output for games have dramatically decreased. And now on PS4/X1, there's almost nothing but remakes, remasters and indies. But then when an exclusive does come out, people complain that it's not multi-platform. I don't feel it's necessary to own a console anymore.

Nintendo Wii U does have the most exclusives this generation. It constantly gets exclusives, but they're not the best games. It's disappointing the Wii U has getting such a short life.

@skemaal: We actually didn't bring this game up but I feel the same way you do. Pretty sure it gets delayed unless we see something more significant at E3.

I'm surprised there was no mention of Assassin's Creed's entire launch schedule being pushed back, not just to 2017 but also to biannual.
