Sony’s tag line for Playstation 4 has been “Greatness Awaits.” For many gamers, that greatness is something they are still awaiting.

I don’t mean to indict the big name games from the king of exclusives outright, but I would like to call to attention your thoughts on what console gamers have gotten in the form of “greatness” so far and in the near future for a purpose.

That purpose intersects with the newest question to arise surrounding gaming, “What constitutes next-gen?” That used to be something anybody and everybody could easily agree on. Things are different now with gamers more or less giving up on advancement. Evidence for this is found in the recent fascination with resolution (Is it 1080p?) and frame rate (It runs at 60 fps right?). I find myself wondering where the folks are that should be asking for new gameplay innovations.

The word innovation gets tossed around a lot, but usually generically. We need to consider it with each important piece of these new generation games. Are the level designs and traversal methods improved over throwing switch A to open section B after beating enemy wave X? Are we still dealing with just a few basic styles of enemy? Are boss battles still a matter of hitting obvious weak points? If the game is first person what has been changed to make it more immersive than previous games of this type? Can combat be made more intuitive, more dramatic?

The questions are endless, and they are creative ones. Why address all of that though when apparently all we need are the same games as before but with better graphics and frame rates?

When it comes to Sony my chief concern is that we will continue to see more style over substance with PS4’s continuing roll out. I seem to be the only one willing to criticize Second Son but we’ve got to face facts. It was a fun, more accessible, less precarious version of its predecessors. The city got prettier, but went from a giant jungle gym to a blur you swept past. The powers looked beautiful, but there were fewer of them and they were less imaginative to boot.

Killzone: Shadow Fall had little more than its graphics. The settings usually had such wonderful gloss on them you almost didn’t notice how small and familiar they were, often paling in comparison to the level design from Killzone 2. Freefall and zero gravity levels should have added fun new gameplay but no critics felt they delivered. I saw so many missed opportunities I almost wanted to jump in front of that train that hit you a dozen times in a row anyway no matter how you approached the train mission. ;)

Recently Driveclub arrived to mixed reviews, mainly lukewarm ones from the reputable sources. Granted the game isn’t what you would normally call “finished,” we still shouldn’t hit the breaks and forget to ask what makes this graphically impressive drive special in the gameplay department. It is meant to be accessible, but where is the reason to buy it over another racer besides the presentation.

Looking into the future I see The Order: 1886 being subject to similar criticism. Heck, it already has been long before release. If you watch those videos closely you can see even in the gloom of the setting that the soft physics are producing stellar visual effects, the cinematics are a step above, and yet from what we can see of the gameplay we are left wondering what’s new. I would caution gamers not to judge any game just from videos, but if Ready At Dawn isn’t implementing something to make it more than a horror version of Uncharted (a great looking, cinematic, linear adventure) then one would expect gamers and critics to give it the big “meh” no matter how gorgeous it is. Honestly I’m afraid that the next big announcement from Sony will be another Kratos driven God of War game with the same old fixed camera setup.

Order-1886

All of this doesn’t address story and character development, which are also great frontiers for change and innovation (ahem, The Last of Us). However if we are to await greatness any longer then it’d be nice to know if all that “greatness” will consist of from the top performing console platform is the prettiest of pretties in the gaming patch then let’s make it official so we can all stop hoping for something decidedly new beyond what our eyes can see.

Maybe some day The Last Guardian will show up and shake things up for all of us… maybe.

  1. I don’t know why everyone loved The Last of Us so much. I thought it incredibly boring and monotonous. It was the first game I haven’t bothered to finish in about a decade.

    1. The first half is very monotonous but the second half really picks up. Similar to the first Uncharted.

    2. Maybe because not everyone has the same gaming tastes. Have you thought about that?

      1. Yes, I did think of that. I guess some people care nothing for gameplay and just want to push through to the next cut scene.

  2. Negative earnings in 6 out of the last seven years. 3/4 of a billion dollars lost Q2 of 2014 despite dominating the console market. “Greatness” indeed.

    I’ve been saying it since launch, there’s nothing special or different about Sony. They aren’t a gaming company out to save the industry. They sell products to maximize their earnings, just like Microsoft and Nintendo. They just having a better marketing strategy to mask it.

    Just play the games and enjoy them for what they are. An escape from the real world.

    1. short term memory much?

      Let’s all forget about Sony being the only one to support the PS3 till the very end just because the PS4 is having a bad first year. Meanwhile, both Nintendo and MS abandoned their last consoles prematurely and even then, their library of games aren’t even that great.

      The Wii U took 2 full years to become relevant while the Xbone just has a racing game and some shooter.

      Not to mention, let’s forget about the fact that the PS4 offers the best price per performance ratio of the 3 current gen consoles.

      The games will come, that is without a doubt. It’s like you guys have never experienced a first year consoles in your life.

      1. Ha. You said bad first year. Have you seen the dominance in both hardware and software? Having an exclusive that does not sell well is not a plus for the competition.

    2. Unfortunately, I think they will be bankrupt within the next few years…

      1. I bet you they won’t be. You will need a buisness degree to have this argument but I assure you, the Sony name is not gone. They are just suffering from their 80s-90s electronics boom. They made multiple versions of multiple things that registers into the thousands of Sony named products.
        Yes, they are slowly closing and ending all those branches and consolidating assets, but that is what you do to prepare for future growth. Tax incentives and such are major rewards for this.
        Each electronics company has suffered from this greatly and seeing as Sony is still here while many are gone and Sony is focusing their products are an Eco system in living rooms means they are not going anywhere. They are freeing up capital in order to focus in on what is successful. Batteries, cellphones, cameras all over the place, MP3 players, etc etc etc are all dying breeds for most companies, microsoft as well with buying Nokia but yet being successful and microsoft closing the entertainment branches.
        See, microsoft just listed their profits and just like the rest of this year they hid the truth. They listed gross profit. Gross profit is not net profit or ie real profit.
        Sony is fine

        1. Interesting… Thanks for the input.

          1. And to add since people focus on “loss”. It is projected growth. A company never reports to investors “we plan to loose money” they report target growth. A 2 billion loss on projected growth is not a loss of money. It is a loss of sales of product produced.
            They are still making money, just not at the projected growth and as they close assets, they adjust but always aiming for the better.

        2. Dude Sony stock is classed under Junk. You should stop trying to defend them, your excuses doesn’t change anything but gives you false hope of a company being resurrected. They lose Billions and no body wants there stock.

          No I am not making this up.
          https://www.vg247.com/2014/01/27/sonys-stock-reduced-to-junk-status-by-investor-service/

          1. Yes they are in the red. Want a cookie? Are you able to understand corporate restructuring and dead weight trimming?
            Or are you just a puppet fanboy bashing on a company for beating your toy this generation? Going off your history, I feel like you should probably step away from any type of intelligent conversation. but go ahead chief, bash away with your idiocy.

          2. Sony is in the red and there stock is Junk. Stop trying to twist it. Sony don’t have a choice but to restructure. If it makes you sleep better at night then keep it to yourself, stop feeding people garbage. When a company loses money, they cut staff, they sell buildings, they close departments.. how is this a good thing? They are losing shares and no one wants to invest into Sony. This is not a routine, this is a company dying to survive.

          3. And I am proven correct.
            A comment section is not a place to educate you in business plus, people go to college(cool place for learning) for a lot of years to learn about this discussion and it very easy to tell by your comments you only hate the maker of the toy you hate and are so blind it stops you from being able to talk intelligently about this subject.
            Shame people like you are real.

          4. Really? LOL keep trying. Junk stocks are junk stocks, but that seems to be a restructuring strategy in your books.

          5. You are completely ignorant about business and screaming lies and blind hatred because you hate that your favorite plastic toy is being outsold. Sad.

      2. Lmfao mate stop trolling

      3. No they won’t. Stop spreading Lies, Ignorance, and Blind Fanboy Hatred.

        1. But those were your own words derp!

      4. See only xbots wish Sony to go bankrupt. Yet all ponies are evil and xbots are innocent angels. :)

    3. The gaming division is well funded, in a net profit, and making quarterly profits. PSN is being invested in to handle the doubled userbase since Destiny launched.

      Sony offered a product customers wanted. Sorry if that upsets you.

      1. Its not well funded, that’s why they had the most lay offs this year. Look at the quality of there AAA exclusives, there best game sits on a 80 meta score in Infamous and the rest are way below 75. There’s nothing special about there games unless you like playing last gen games and Indies. Sony is losing billions every year and they cant keep funding PlayStation like they use to.

        MS spent 3 billion dollars in there gaming industry plus another 2.5 billion in purchasing Mojang. PlayStation and Sony cant keep up. They now have to invest heavy in there online infrastructure since it simply cant cope with todays standards and there in direct competition with MS’s online structure which MS invested 30 billion on Azure Cloud.

        1. You could literally hear Failz’s balls shrivel into his body when they announced 13.5 million sold. LMAO! Meanwhile MS delivered no exclusives post-launch until September and spent $2.5 billion on an indie studio to get kids to buy windows Phones. So good.

          1. So I should care how much a plastic box sells? I guess I should care how much iPhone and Galaxy phones sell too.. I am not a share holder, but seems like you are, good luck investing in junk stocks.

          2. The tears are real. Keep ’em coming, Failz, they make my chips taste delicious. :^)

          3. Stop spreading lies and blind fanboy hatred.

        2. The gaming division is well funded, in a net profit, and making quarterly profits. PSN is being invested in to handle the doubled userbase since Destiny launched. As usual you’re wrong on anything to do with finances or sales.

          https://www.listwar.com/released-games/

          PS4 has good games already with more on the way. They both have good games not on the other console, it depends on your gaming tastes.

          2015: The Order: 1886, Bloodborne, Ratchet & Clank, Uncharted 4, Tearaway Unfolded, Until Dawn, Persona 5, Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, Rime, Let it Die, Deep Down, Alienation, Gran Turismo, Helldivers, The Tomorrow Children, more.

          PS4 is selling on game price/performance, 1st party studios, more developer support including indies and Japanese developers, PS+ value, and better PR.

          Naughty Dog, Santa Monica Studios, Media Molecule, Japan Studio, Polyphony Digital, etc. will put great games on PS4. Infamous and MLB The Show are 80+ on PS4 already. Sony’s 1st parties are working on several unannounced PS4 AAA games.

          1st/2nd party studios include Japan Studio, Polyphony Digital, Naughty Dog, SCE Bend, SCE San Diego, SCE Santa Monica, Sucker Punch, Pixel Opus, Evolution Studios, Guerrilla Games, Guerrilla Cambridge, SCE London, Media Molecule, Ready at Dawn, Quantic Dream, etc.

      2. You are mentally diseased and pure evil fanboy waste spreading Utter Lies and Blind Hatred. The PSN is down more than it’s up.

        1. Complete and total lie from a sick fanboy.

    4. You mean like how they sold ps3 at a loss for so many years. Yepyep them earnings was lots.

  3. I ask myself this everyday. I feel like I was lied to by Sony. I still enjoy my PS4 but I keep wondering if they overhyped it.

    1. And what about the xbone? Take it that’s amazing? Fuck off mate

      1. The Xbone at least has better exclusives like Sunset Overdrive and the upcoming Master Chief Collection.

        Also i don’t know why are you bringing the Xbone here when this topic is about Sony,

        1. MCC doesn’t really count, I know I wouldn’t count TLOU:Remastered in a list of solid first party games, being that its just a repackaging of a game from last gen, I think all consoles are extremely lacking at the moment, even on PC, every game thats come out has been a disappointment, like actually think about it, every game that was super big has failed pretty harshly…I honestly chalk it up to not having enough time to develop, new hardware means better graphics yes, but it also means far more work, and companies seem to be trying to stick to shorter timelines when they should be taking 3-4 years to make a titles instead…honestly, I don’t think its gonna get better for PS4, Xone, WiiU or PC…

          1. Why it doesn’t count?

          2. I like how xbots say lou remastered doesn’t count as a ps4 exclusive but mcc for xbots one does. :)

          3. Well there’s a bit of a difference in what’s remastered and how much there is to play in there. And don’t forget that the first halo is old so not many people have played it. The Last of Us was a good game but it didn’t need to be remastered yet in my opinion. Try playing some truly old games that have bad graphics in todays standards, those need to be remastered if of course they are excellent games.

          4. because it’s older games repackaged for a different system, and those games aren’t only on Xbox One.

          5. Can i play those games at 1080p and 60fps on older consoles?

          6. thats neither here nor there, its the same overall experience.

        2. Barely two points above Infamous and a port collection. Literally nothing worth buying an Xbone for. Oh wait, free Ryse. Hahahahahaha!

          1. Instead X1 has better racing games, actually racing games that actually work.

            MCC > Killzone
            FH2 > Drive Club
            Sunset > Infamous
            KI > ?

            Wait what game did you buy the PS4 for?

          2. Failz speaks instead of spams his guest accounts.

            Ports

            Multiplat

            Shitset Snoreverdrive is forgotten about already

            No one cares about bare bones KI and Guilty Gear is out in December.

            Xbone has no games, Failz has no clue. :^)

    2. Stop spreading Lies, Ignorance, and Blind Hatred.

    3. Damn bruh you spend more time on the web crapping on everything Sony then you do playing your PC/X1.

      Stop stressing yourself out playa.

      1. I don’t have an XB1, only a PS4.

        1. Then return it immediately. No need for the negative to impact you daily. Jeez!

          1. It’s just tough… I see you guys enjoying yourselves while I’m here stuck with indies.

          2. What’s wrong with the multiplats? Have you played Shadows or Wolfenstein? Two of the best games this far in my opinion. No they don’t scream I need a PS4 because they are on other platforms as well, however they have been enjoyable to say the least.

        2. Patience is a must. Just look at how the system has evolved in it’s first 11 months. This time a year from now it’ll evolve even further. Who knows what type of innovations will get added in the next year or so.

          Only a hater would say that SharePlay isn’t intriguing. Hell I bet even the biggest MS fanboy now wants it as well.

          Patience Homie is all it takes. Only a novice expects all there is to be offered at launch.

    4. Just like that titanfall hype :0

  4. Love targeted articles that obviously splits the community with favoritism.
    Why? Would it not be about “games” this gen and not on a particular consoke?
    Going by review scores is not a correct way to look for many reasons.
    Sales is what you look at.
    Games like COD, asassins creed, madden, Fifa, battlefield and new ips like watchdogs and destiny.
    These games have gone against the reviews. Not by sales but by install base. The majority of game sales are due to these consumers.
    Go off history. That’s dhat builds consumers trust.
    How about listing the last four years, FOUR YEARS, of console exclusives per console and you will see why consumers are intelligently spending their money.
    There are very few games that will last years with both being played and being remembered and those type of games, this gen, has yet to be seen.
    Jumping on TWO exclusives that will not be remembered next year because of review scores is nothing but blind journalism.
    You buy for the investment of what is to come and Sony has done their job in proving greatness is coming both with multiplats and award winning exclusives.

    1. As I’ve stated above, this article is about what has been released. We cannot pass judgment on what’s coming, as you seem to have the ability to apparently do.

      Obviously Sony’s got some great looking games in ther lineup for 2015, but that’s not what’s being discussed here.

      1. Actually, if you re-read, you will see I said history, not what is coming.
        And as I stayed on topic, I states sales of current software. The games that sell are the games that are wanted. Sony is dominating in said scenario. Exclusive are good. Anything tremendous? No. But with what is out there, it is on par for the fact that there is nothing “spectacular” out there.
        Are there games with good reviews? Yes. Do sales back those reviews up? No. Are there games with bad reviews? Yes and, to name one, destiny has a 3.2 million average log on. ie games that are wanted is how this should be looked at.
        Therefore when a game like destiny outsells forza, why is it that Sony is lacking?

        1. But that’s what this article is about though, exclusives. Nothing more, and it’s not an Xbox vs Sony article either, it’s simply about the likability performance of Sony’s currently released exclusives, which have been lackluster in our author’s opinion.

          You’re free to post your opinion on the exclusives that are talked about here, but your defending something that wasn’t even brought into question in the article. Everybody knows the PS4 is doing well in sales, nobody’s disputed that. Everybody also knows that games are selling more on the PS4 than X1, nobody disputed that here either and in all honesty, the system that has sold more better damn well be selling more games to more people..

        2. Destiny is PS4’s best game and its also on XB1 with identical visuals with a inferior online service. People are zombies and they will buy anything if its marketed right. Drive Club is out selling Horizon 2, does it make it a better game? If you want a next gen driving experience that actually works online then X1 is for you, if you want the best FPS games on the market? then X1 is for you, If you want Insomniacs next big hit? Then X1 is for you. I never buy consoles for multiplats or Indies, I have a $2k gaming rig that I use 90% of the time. Only reason why I own next gen consoles is for there exclusives and PS4 sit 3rd place in the exclusive AAA department.

          1. What is next gen driving experience? Driveatars? The same ai that has existed since the psone? Do you really believe being told the car is driving like your friend “next gen”?
            FPS? By sales or your tase? it’s on ps4.
            Oh, no, wait, you too also suck the “online is better” pipe. Keep selling, one day, the masses might believe you.
            Sunset overdrive? Does not appeal to me for a $60 game. It’s a xbl game. It is way repetitive for me, and, according to sales, too many others as well. That’s my point…
            I understand your delusions, the only games you can name are the only ones you have. You literally look like a child when your arguments stop there.
            You cant hold on to the history of Xbox because it too is emberassing if you try.
            I base my taste off history and just becaus you think you have games that are preferred to you, they are not being preferred by mass consumers. To say that is, yes, you like the games available, but no, a lot more do not find them to be worth while. Facts.
            My point is, it does not matter and for you to list facts like you are a god is idiotic beyond understanding, you are ignoring history, mass consumer need and, intelligent thinking.
            Sony has provided great experiences for MANY years. The consumers know it. When you are talking about consoles, try literally listing all games available on the consoles? Or is it currently ok to talk about exclusives until they have tons more available than or releasing more than the competition?

          2. PSN is a great online service.

            PS4 is selling on game price/performance, 1st party studios, more developer support including indies and Japanese developers, PS+ value, and better PR.

            Driveclub is a good game and the online is working.

            Console gamers want a console, not a PC, and they want PS4 not Xbox.
            Hiding behind PC to downplay PS4’s stronger console hardware does
            nothing.

            All you are doing is spreading lies and blind fanboy hatred.

            Multiplatform games are more important than exclusives this holiday so PS4 will dominate in global sales. Xbox will have good sales in the USA but globally it has no chance against PS4.

            In the real world, normal people are overwhelmingly still buying PS4s. They don’t care about racing games like Driveclub or Forza or niche games like Sunset Overdrive. They want Ubisoft games, Destiny, GTA V, Call of Duty, and sports games. They mostly don’t care about media player features on a gaming console.

            2015: The Order: 1886, Bloodborne, Ratchet & Clank, Uncharted 4, Tearaway Unfolded, Until Dawn, Persona 5, Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, Rime, Let it Die, Deep Down, Alienation, Gran Turismo, Helldivers, The Tomorrow Children, more.

      2. To further my point, last gen, all of the great games with huge sales and attachments were in fact multiplat games. COD MW. If you want the masses, release what it is they buy and do the best version of said game. You want to sell your own exclusive IPs, have the user base large enough to make it succeede.
        My point, off of history, Microsoft blew their exclusives early last gen and then went empty with three years to go where as Sony did the exact same thing as last gen but ending with more exclusives than you could keep up with through that gen was award winning games repeatedly.
        Point being, on consoles, for this gen thus far, there is no must own exclusive for any console.

  5. Yep, $0N¥ = lies and overhype that underdeliver. Poor paupers that fall for it.

    1. Stop spreading Lies, Ignorance, and Blind Hatred.

      PS4 has many great games already and millions of gamers are enjoying it.

  6. lol you seem to be basing this all on high expectations rather being realistic with your expectations. same could be said for bloodborne, though i love how that was left out despite it could end up like dark souls 2. you focus on negatives, excluding the postives at the same time. Let’s not even mention on what the other studios are working on but i’m assuming that if you’re a patient person. all in all it sounds like the overwhelming reviews of both sunsent overdrive and forza horizon has people banging their drum a little to early and jumping on their little keyboards at sony for failing to put out a game with glowing reviews.

    1. This article is about what’s been released so far. It’s not about what’s coming.

      1. There’s a contradiction to a sentence in a reply above you stated. “sony hasn’t really met the expectations that they set at the end of ps3’s life cycle with the exclusives that were being pumped out” really now? you seem to confuse beginning of a console’s life cycle and end. the reason why there was so many because A ( developers had a concepts and engines built. B ( resources went towards current projects. C ( games aren’t like a candy factories they don’t pump them out unless they are approved & finalized. oh and the obvious lol it was the end of ps3’s life cycle. like i said you and other people or the author of this fine article set their expectations too high.

        1. Exactly. Devs are still laying the ground work. Getting to grips with the hardware. yet this guys ( and many others like him) already condemning Sony exclusive line up.

          1. It seems to me you know nothing of the ps4’s hardware nor software. It is literally off the shelf pc parts , Their is no learning curve. They also use open cl their own version of open gl which devs already know how to use , or direct x 11 which devs already know how to use. They have absolutely no problem optimizing for the ps4. I have yet run into any dev article explaining that they were having a hard time utilizing hardware for the ps4. You know where sony messed up . Having a over bloated OS taking up 3.5 gigs of ram I mean wtf. That leaves you with 4.5 gigs of ram to be shared with the cpu and gpu. Guess what highly intensive games that use both cpu and gpu are gonna cause terrible bottle necks in that system. This is why, Infamous SS was a ghost town, why there were frame dips on Killzone SF if there were to many AI on screen. Shit killzone’s multiplayer wasn’t even native 1080p. This guy is right, most of their games will lack substance. Also before anyone goes off about indies remember they will probably come out for xbox one. As far as their studio’s go , you should check up on those lay-offs.

          2. PS4 is more powerful than Xbox in pretty much every way.

            Sony World Wide Studios has never been stronger, all you are doing is spreading Lies and blind hatred.

            PS4 has good games already with more on the way. They both have good games not on the other console, it depends on your gaming tastes.

            1st/2nd party studios include Japan Studio, Polyphony Digital, Naughty Dog, SCE Bend, SCE San Diego, SCE Santa Monica, Sucker Punch, Pixel Opus, Evolution Studios, Guerrilla Games, Guerrilla Cambridge, SCE London, Media Molecule, Ready at Dawn, Quantic Dream, etc.

            Multiplatform games are more important than most exclusives and PS4 will have a performance advantage the entire generation with its more powerful hardware.

            The gaming division is well funded, in a net profit, and making quarterly profits. PSN is being invested in to handle the doubled userbase since Destiny launched.

          3. If it’s so easy to develop for let’s see you make a ps4 exclusive running at 1080p at a constant 60fps with graphics far superior to that of iss and DC :) shouldn’t be a problem cause of those off the shelf parts:)
            Also if is so easy to find ps4 parts let’s all just build our own while we are at it:3

          4. I’m not condemning Sony’s lineup at all. I based my judgment of Second Son and Shadow Fall off of what I played from the previous games. I’m a fan of both series and both of the PS4 releases were very disappointing in my opinion as compared to the previous iterations.

            I don’t blindly just like a game because it’s on a certain platform.

      2. Yes what’s been released so far in a consoles 1st year on the market. Thought people already new 1st batch games aren’t always going to be great.

  7. PS4 exclusives have been mediocre so far, Knack, Driveclub ( a disaster right now), etc

    Bloodborne looks great though, but as someone who owns a PS4 and Wii U, i am having tons of fun with my Wii U with great games like Tropical Freeze or Bayonetta 2 instead of “cinematic experiences” like The Order.

    1. Driveclub’s online is almost entirely fixed.

      1. You are mentally diseased and pure evil fanboy waste spreading Utter Lies and Blind Hatred.It’s still broken

        1. PSN is being invested in to handle the doubled userbase since Destiny launched.

          PSN is running fine aside from a few hours of unscheduled downtime a month. That’s unacceptable and unfortunate and Sony needs to improve, but some people blow it out of proportion.

          Driveclub’s server issues have nothing to do with PSN being able to handle Destiny, CoD, BF, and all the other far more popular multiplayer games.

          According to the latest Driveclub update on facebook, online services are mostly working as of Oct 28.

          “Our diagnostics show the majority of you are now able to get online and racing. This increased stability has meant that statistics and accolades are updating efficiently now, so hopefully you have been having fun boosting your fame and watching how you compare to your friends and other racers around the world.

          Today we also released a server update to optimise multiplayer matchmaking so you will now be matched with more suitable players based on the type of internet connection you have, which means matchmaking should be more reliable. This update will also fix some bugs we had with clubs where some players couldn’t join or leave a club.

          Improvements continue to be made to the servers and our next significant game update will be released this week. This will boost connectivity and provide a better overall experience.”

    2. While I agree with most of what you said, it is extremely difficult for me considering you have a Seifer avatar and that’s also your name. Gross.

    3. Any grown man bragging about the WiiU is hysterical to me. No offense but that is for kids. It’s the reason why Nintendo doesn’t get crapped on because for most adults we have this childhood nostalgia type love for Nintendo. But again that was childhood.

      1. Sure man, go and play Knack or other games for “Adult men” like yourself, i’m having a blast with Bayonetta 2 and can’t wait for Devil’s Third.

        1. Hahahahaha!

          1. :)

  8. PS4 already has good games with more on the way.

    There are already great exclusives on PS4 with many more on the way. They both have good games not on the other console, it depends on your gaming tastes.

    PS4 is selling on game price/performance, 1st party studios, more developer support including indies and Japanese developers, PS+ value, and better PR.

    Naughty Dog, Santa Monica Studios, Media Molecule, Japan Studio, Polyphony Digital, etc. will put great games on PS4. Infamous and MLB The Show are 80+ on PS4 already. The Motorstorm series is highly rated but Driveclub was under Evolution Studio’s usual quality.

    1. Can you please explain to me why you worry so much about sales and performance of a gaming console? All I see out of a lot of comments like yours is looking at outside factors of the PS4. The ratings of the games, the sales of the games, the sales of the consoles and all that jazz.

      If you’re enjoying the console, the games and whatever else it has to offer, why waste so much time defending it? What does it matter?

      There’s great games coming out on both consoles, but as of yet, as our author provided his opinion on, Sony hasn’t really met the expectations that they set at the end of the PS3’s life cycle with the exclusives that were being pumped out.

      We’re talking about what’s been released, not what’s coming in 2015. And why? Well, we haven’t played those games yet and neither can you, and passing judgment on something you haven’t even played saying it’ll be amazing…well, that’s just silly.

      1. He is rationalizing his PS4 purchase, it’s obvious that this guy has a severe buyer’s remorse and he is now making tons of excuses.

        1. Another fanboy flinging insults and name calling in the face of facts, reality, and rational arguments backed up by links.

          1. You are mentally diseased and pure evil fanboy waste continuing spreading Utter Lies and Blind Hatred.

      2. Your entire article is talking about how PS4 games are all flash and no substance. I provided you links showing not only does PS4 have MORE games than Xbox, but those games are higher rated by critics.

        I’m trying to explain reality why PS4 is outselling Xbox. People are in denial about “only selling on hype” and “it has no good games” which is nonsense. Normal people are still overwhelmingly buying PS4s because multiplatform games are the most important this holiday.

        The same reason the author wrote it – they have an opinion and they want to share it. That’s what the open comments are for, right?

        Once again, PS4 has many highly rated games that can’t be found on Xbox, with good gameplay.

        The Last of Us: Remastered – great game and a lot of PS4 owners never owned a PS3, so it’s a brand new game to them

        Final Fantasy XIV – great MMORPG

        MLB 14: The Show 14 – great baseball game

        Injustice: Gods Among Us – great fighting game, NOT on Xbox One

        Infamous: Second Son and First Light – great open world action games

        Samurai Warriors 4 – good Musou game

        PS4 has tons of multiplatform AAA games, if you own a PS4 there’s no shortage of games to play this year, or this month.

        PS4’s digital library is much larger and has lots of highly rated games that aren’t on Xbox.

        If you want to move the goalposts to “I can get that on PC or PS3”, most of Xbox’s library can be played on PC or 360 as well, or will probably hit PC eventually.

        1. The article is not debating Xbox vs PS4 which is what you clearly are doing. You’re arguing about nothing. An opinion would be you explaining why you liked or disagree with the Shadow Fall and Second Son being dissapointing compared to their counterparts.

          1. umm I would say I loved Infamous SS. Awesome game.
            And there s no point explaining why I disagree with a biased site and you know it (yea of course we r all biased). That why people resort to stupid fanboy wars arguments with others in the comments and all of it is actually USELESS except for the site to count the points and comments

        2. Infamous Second Son and First Light were awesome. On an overall level, I’d go as far as to say that it’s better than even The Last Of Us. Infamous’s gameplay is way more awesome than the stealthy TLOU.
          Killzone Shadow Fall’s multi-player is impeccable, story wise, Mercenary was better on both level design and number of enemies, Shadow Fall did look much better but it takes way too long to get into the heavy gun fights unlike previous entries.
          Driveclub online works now, the game is missing out some key elements however.
          But, this debate goes back with the PS3, back then even when they do innovative things like having 256 players in a shooting game or Starhawk where you drop buildings to conquer your enemies, all of those awesome games got lukewarm reception despite being really really Really Fun to play. There is a big bias in gaming journalism that if publishers don’t pay, they don’t get great scores.
          Just look at Halo, people gave high scores to Halo Wars… We all know that there are other RTS or MOBAs that are significantly better than this… Review scored high, metacritics not so much, not that we should ever base ourselves on either one of them to make our purchases simply because we all have different taste in gaming and it really doesn’t matter what others say, if you’re having fun, that’s all that matters.

        3. Lol dude quantity doesn’t mean quality. PS4 has more games then the XB1, only if you include PC indies and Ports. Its the AAA collection that’s the problem. There’s nothing that’s an exclusive AAA on PS4 that’s makes people want one. People are buying the PS4 based off Hype. The best game on PS4 is Destiny which is also available on the XB1 and looks identical, and you can argue that the XB1 is better based off its online servers and very little down times compared.

          Why should a casual buy a PS4? Because of Killzone SF? when its competitor has Titanfall and Halo MCC, or should they buy it for a Racing game in Drive Club? when there competitors have Forza 5 and Horizon 2, or should they buy it for the open world game in Infamous SS? while there competitor has Sunset Overdrive.

          The PS4’s AAA collection is coming in at 3rd place compared to its competitors in terms of quality.

          You can argue sales and Hardware all you want, but Marketing and Hype (just like the iPhone) is a strong tool and people will buy what ever is advertised better even if it is a inferior product.

          1. Well last time I checked sales is important. No sales= no money and right now ps4 has the better sales. Multiplats are much more important this generation than exclusive. And sales prove that clearly. So Argue all you like everyday day for this entire generation but that’s what will sell more in the end.

          2. Sony takes PlayStation profits. Funny how Xbox is selling less then the PS4 yet more games (Tomb Raider’s sequel) coming out on XB1. How does that work? Where is all of Playstation’s money there making on the PS4 going? Why do we get broken games like Drive Club? Seems abit suss. Take your fanboy glasses off and look at reality. PS is a shadow of there former self.

            Now multiplats are more important then exclusives? LOL that was pretty dumb to say. I guess if the tides were turned and PS4 had the better exclusives you would be changing your opinion.

          3. That is a complete and total lie. PS4 has more games right now and more games upcoming. Sony World Wide Studios has 3000+ employees and most of them are working on PS4 games. PS4 will have more 1st party games the entire generation.

            The gaming division is well funded, in a net profit, and making quarterly profits. PSN is being invested in to handle the doubled userbase since Destiny launched. As usual you’re wrong on anything to do with finances or sales.

            Sony World Wide Studios has never been stronger, all you are doing is spreading Lies and blind hatred.

            All you are doing is Lying and Deluding yourself, screaming the opposite of reality as Normal people continue to overwhelmingly buy PS4s.

            Naughty Dog, Santa Monica Studios, Media Molecule, Japan Studio, Polyphony Digital, etc. will put great games on PS4. Infamous and MLB The Show are 80+ on PS4 already. Sony’s 1st parties are working on several unannounced PS4 AAA games.

            1st/2nd party studios include Japan Studio, Polyphony Digital, Naughty Dog, SCE Bend, SCE San Diego, SCE Santa Monica, Sucker Punch, Pixel Opus, Evolution Studios, Guerrilla Games, Guerrilla Cambridge, SCE London, Media Molecule, Ready at Dawn, Quantic Dream, etc.

            Driveclub is not up to Evolution Studios usual standards but hopefully they come back with a new Motorstorm or something critically acclaimed.

          4. They always were. Gta says hello, so does cod. And yay for xbox one. One money hatted timed exclusive game now equals more games coming to xbox one :)

          5. Destiny is undeniably best on psn a) bungie sorted their own servers and there’s been next to no issues since launch. Also the exclusive stuff at launch and the fact in the next dlc there’s extra content in ps4 version yet no extra cost. It’s irrelevant though the games a rip off…

          6. I have a PS4 and you hit this one out park. That why I’m getting an Xbox 1 tomorrow with the price drop. I currently have one PS exclusive…Infamous and have no more desire to finish it. Graphics are great but the game is boring compared to the previous ones.

            Tried Killzone, Knack, Resogun, Driveclub and have no interest in Little Big Planet. Good luck on the Order 1866 which leaves us with Bloodborne.

            To be honest I still waiting for greatness on both consoles. Sunset Overdrive and Fora Horizon 2 is a step in the right direction. We need more but I like when the competitor is in a desperate position. Willing to give MS a chance since Sony has had theirs.

            The main reason for Sony success with the PS4 Is not just hype. The system is slightly more powerful but we haven’t seen it. Yet the online media and fanboys have done more for this console than anything Sony has done. Between over exaggeration of the power difference and the meaningless 1080 vs 900p….it’s been a circus.

            Sony will get its exclusives right but it’s going to take a bit longer since these past ones have been duds on the PS4. MS you are up to bat, let’s see what you got.

          7. Yeah, let’s have a rerun of Halo. That’s so innovative. I can’t wait to play overhyped Halo, because it won’t be anything like the last Halo, lmmfao. Xbox, home of the rehash.

          8. That’s actually one of the most idiotic statements I’ve read. I’m tired of Halo but if you talk about rehash how about The Last of Us, Flower, Injustice, Final Fantasy, MLB Show are all rehashed for full price on PS4. You Sony sheeps are a mess.

          9. Don’t be crying when your Xbone is collecting dust in three months because, like this year, it’ll have no games until September.

          10. Yeah, like when I was crying over my PS3 collecting dust for over a year before they got their act together.

            Well if you are right but You are flat out wrong, at least I would not have spent $599 for future proofing.

            Thanks for the concern. I think I can handle this one.

          11. That’s your own fault for being a console at launch with no games in the near-future you wanted. Show some discernment.

          12. Multiplatform games are more important than exclusives this holiday so PS4 will dominate in global sales. Xbox will have good sales in the USA but globally it has no chance against PS4.

            In the real world, normal people are overwhelmingly still buying PS4s. They don’t care about racing games like Driveclub or Forza or niche games like Sunset Overdrive. They want Ubisoft games, Destiny, GTA V, Call of Duty, and sports games. They mostly don’t care about media player features on a gaming console.

            2015: The Order: 1886, Bloodborne, Ratchet & Clank, Uncharted 4, Tearaway Unfolded, Until Dawn, Persona 5, Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, Rime, Let it Die, Deep Down, Alienation, Gran Turismo, Helldivers, The Tomorrow Children, more.

            PS4 is selling on game price/performance, 1st party studios, more developer support including indies and Japanese developers, PS+ value, and better PR.

            Naughty Dog, Santa Monica Studios, Media Molecule, Japan Studio, Polyphony Digital, etc. will put great games on PS4. Infamous and MLB The Show are 80+ on PS4 already. Sony’s 1st parties are working on several unannounced PS4 AAA games.

            Multiplatform games are more important than most exclusives and PS4 will have a performance advantage the entire generation with its more powerful hardware.

          13. Unfortunately that’s your problem. You look at PS4 vs XB1 where a number of us are looking at the games no matter the console. Multiplatform games will do well because the developers are going to make sure they make as much money as they can on both. The only games that will differ the consoles are the exclusives….see last gen multiplatform games for proof. We await the sheep to complain about how one console is holding the other back on multiplat games….. Oh, they have done it already. My bad.

          14. You completely ignored PS4’s good exclusives and lied that nobody wants PS4 for its exclusives. You LIE that it only sells on hype. Your entire post is full of lies and blind fanboy hatred.

            All you are doing is Lying and Deluding yourself, screaming the opposite of reality as Normal people continue to overwhelmingly buy PS4s.

            PS4 is selling on game price/performance, 1st party studios, more developer support including indies and Japanese developers, PS+ value, and better PR.

        4. You delusional phuck head. Useless pony puke

          1. Another sick, ignorant, pure evil fanboy screaming and flinging feces in the face of facts, reality, and reasonable arguments.

        5. You are mentally diseased and pure evil fanboy waste still spreading Utter Lies and Blind Hatred with FUD.

        6. boring films about some kid in a wheel chair over coming his obstacle and learning to dance would get a 10/10 but be rubbish. Some other films comical in nature could get panned but be accepted by the public as something great.

          Critics have a guideline on what makes a film good, if it doesnt meet it it gets lower. Its the same for games although now its reversing reviewers are sick of seeing amazing graphics and completely boring repetitive gameplay so scoring it less… finally thats why PS4 games are not going to do that well this gen.

    2. You are mentally diseased and pure evil fanboy waste spreading Utter Lies and Blind Hatred.

  9. Graphics have been better this generation but only slightly. The gameplay is the real loss. I see no innovation either. I thought Infamous SS could change that but that game could have ran on last gen with less graphics. Nothing in the mechanics of gameplay was next gen. There is not a game out there that I know of that is really taking advantage of next gen hardware with gameplay and mechanics. I thought Watch Dogs would when it was announced but then you heard it was coming to last gen as well. So obviously the older hardware can do what the new can do as well

    So yea when it comes to Sony right now and possibly in the near future more style over substance like the author said. If the author has a bias towards xbox though I would say to him better to have more style than more nothing….which is probably why there are so few people jumping from their 360s to the xbox1 still.

    1. Provide just one “innovative” idea, just one. I bet you can’t do it.

      1. Yea thats what i said…there is a lack of innovation on next gen games. Read much? If you are asking what would be innovative i would suggest more complex npcs with improved AI. Like i said though games like watch dogs and GTA accomplished this on both last and current gen. There is still way more room for improvement though and so far it hasn’t been done. Another idea would be using camera features to capture the gamers mood and incorporate into the game w how npcs react or the story is driven. That would be innovative

  10. Man what is wrong with the people!? Give the PS4 a break; it is only the first year goddamnit! It has always been like that; pick up any generation and see what kind of games were released in the first year of release. Did everyone forget what happened last 2 gens? Xbox always has a few games until middle of the gen and then they dry up. On the other hand Playstation has history of three gens with great exclusives until the last months a gen. Just look at the PS3 and Xbox 360. I dont know why the console that tried to impose DRM, always online and prevention of reselling of games has suddenly become the poor victim and underdog! It was PS4 that focused on games gamer freedom that saved us from such a future. PS4 is the reason that we are able to return crappy games or share our games with friends. Now just because there havent been any 9+ scorers in the first year the PS4 has become a bad system. You people have such short memories. MS is just desperate to catch up with Sony and that is why they are giving all the free games, discounts and moneyhatting exclusives; it is not like they love you people! What does MS has coming in the next few years!? Can you people name a few games? PS4 on the other hand has numerous games including,

    Order 1886
    Bloodborne
    Santa Monica Game
    Sony Bend Studio Game
    Uncharted 4
    Dragon Quest Heroes
    Deep Down
    Persona 5
    God Eater 2
    Fairy Fencer 2
    Alienation
    Akiba’s Trip
    From the Children
    Daylight
    Day Z
    Diasgaea 5
    Dragon Fin Soup
    Dynasty Warriors 8
    Entwined
    Everybody’s Gone to Rapture
    Guilty Gear XRD
    Gran Turismo 7
    Hellblade
    Hotshots Golf
    Hyperdimension Neptunia
    No Man’s Sky
    Octodad
    Project Phoenix
    Ratchet and Clank

    God, there are so many I cant even name them all! Consoles are not bought on the first year releases. They are bought on the basis of all the games you will get to play over the whole generation! Almost 13.5 million people can see that and that is why people are buying the PS4. What good is the Xbone if I wont be playing any exclusives 3 years down the road?? These same people will be saying that exclusives do not matter at that time just like last gen. Stop being so short-sighted!

    1. Sony have already released 4 big in house games not including Sony Japan Studio’s Knack. You can except 1 to 2 average games but when your 4th game comes out and is broken, questions need to be asked. especially after they announce it a Forza Killer.
      Sony’s 5th big AAA game in The Order is also falling prey to criticism.

      1. I agree that Driveclub was a disaster and I dont know what went wrong with it but all of the other games are working fine, right? A few of them are even million sellers as well so what is the problem? We have Infamous SS, Killzone SF, Last of us Remastered, FFXIV RR, Oddworld, Knack, Resogun. LoU, FFXIV and Resogun are critically acclaimed; all of them are working great; As for reviews, they are just opinions. Millions of people bought them and like them. As for the highly rated Forzas, they are all commercial bombs. Sunset Overdrive will probably be a commercial bomb as well given its wacky and aimless design. So what is the point of making those critic’s darlings that nobody buys??

        1. If you can’t do it, then teach it, and if you can’t do either, then be a critic. These bottom feeders go around demanding some revolutionary game-play just be invented for every game that comes out. Yet, they can’t come up with some new revolutionary idea. 99 percent of every game is a ripoff of another game that has come before it.

          I think the critics are getting more and more bitter that their refined opinions are disconnected from what people like to play.

      2. PC game releases have all manner of problems and a lot times actually are or seem incomplete yet no one complains about that consistent pattern of inconsistency publicly, it doesn’t become the pre-release subject of public ridicule…which is should since it occurs on a much much broader swath of games.

        Drive Club works fine without the social components and as a driving game is superior to Forza 5 in virtually every way (which has very little in the way social features) The difference between Infamous SS and Sunset overdrive (a copycat game) is pretty subjective. I’m not a Saints Row or Dead Rising fan so you know which one I’m going with and the graphics for SS are more hi-fidelity.

        You still can’t get any copy of Last of Us on any MS platform, so that’s an automatic loss. Say what you want about The Order:1886, but if it ends up as the game of the year no one’s going to be surprised. Aside from that there are so many talented people at Sony first party and third party studios like Quantic Dream and some working on already successful IP that to say it doesn’t matter isn’t working within the frame of reality.

  11. I really think it’s in vogue to be critical of games and most portals are too critical of the next gen content that’s already out there while being extremely ignorant of the technical processes necessary to make the games possible. Killzone:Shadow:Fall, Battlefield 4, Tomb Raider, Infamous SS and Drive Club are great games that represent monumental console achievements in and of themselves. You have to understand the technical underpinnings of what’s being done to really understand how far forward games development has moved technically from the previous generation.

    As to game play…the previous console generation lasted 6+ years, so it’s going to take a while for developers to think in completely different ways then what they’ve built entire large studio pipelines around and it wouldn’t be prudent to do anything else really. One of the benefits of the explosion of indie game development is the rebirth of experimentation in gaming. While I doubt every game will be completely designed to build itself procedurally Indie game development will influence the development of AAA titles going forward.

    It’s unfortunate TitanFall released as a pretty incomplete gaming experience even though Respwan really has done some innovative things with gameplay while sacrificing graphics. My guess is that 2-3 years from now a lot of the games games that are now on PS4 will be more appreciated then they are now, just because they won’t have to prove anything any more.

  12. This is the main reason why i haven’t bought ps4. There is nothing NEW coming out. You can make a new i.p but it should feel fresh from the get go and not something that feels like you have already played before.

    I admit that the problem lies mostly in us the consumers, we only buy something that is familiar and safe because we don’t want to lose our hard earned money in something that we may not like.

    And of course gaming innovation isn’t easy to come by these days because there is already so much of everything out there.

  13. I find it to be ironic with sony to be touting the ps4 as the ,”for the gamer”, when in reality, Xbox one has been about the games all along.

    1. That’ll be why the PS4 has more and better games then.

      1. Enjoying the firmware update?

        1. Sure am. Share Play is great. Enjoying the apps?

      2. Lol you know very well pony, xbox one has the better games

        1. Nope. PS4 has more and better games this year and next year. https://www.listwar.com/released-games/

          Better to be a pony than an Xbox rat. :)

          1. Lol too many ponies that don’t have games to play

          2. Another Xbox rat in denial. Enjoy those apps.

          3. Lol so not only does xbox one got the exclusives, this pony jusy admitted that it also has the apps.oh did I also mention, that Psn degrades gameplay..lol

          4. PS4 has as many AA and AAA exclusives this year as the Xbone does, and twice as many next year. Sorry, drone. :)

            Another Xbot with communication issues. Spoiler alert: no one cares about your apps! :^)

          5. Iol the ponies have 1886 for 2015 haahaaha.Nice try,how is those sony exclusives treating you now?So far,the ps4 track record sucks,I hope for your sake that your not a gambling Pony.

          6. PS4 is selling on game price/performance, 1st party studios, more developer support including indies and Japanese developers, PS+ value, and better PR.

            PS4 has good games already with more on the way. They both have good games not on the other console, it depends on your gaming tastes.

            PS4 has many more games rated 75+ on Metacritic than Xbox, and 60+ more games total.

            Both PSN and Xbox Live have similar amounts of unscheduled downtime or issues with friends lists, etc. PSN has been running fine through Destiny and CoD launches.

            PSN is running fine aside from a few hours of unscheduled downtime a month. That’s unacceptable and unfortunate and Sony needs to improve, but some people blow it out of proportion.

            PS+ subs doubled in September with the Destiny launch. Sony is upgrading servers to handle the increased load.

            Stop spreading fanboy lies, ignorance, trolling, and blind hate. All of your lies and blind hatred only make you look deranged and sick to normal, sane people.

          7. You can’t deny that xbox one had the better exclusives for 2013 and 2014.

          8. It depends on the genre the customer likes to play.

            Xbox has higher rated exclusive shooters, open world, and racing, PS4 has higher rated exclusive games in other genres.

          9. i can guarantee The Order will not live up to the hype, guarantee it. Bloodborne is more niche cus it looks boring to me, the Tomorrow Children looks like garbage. Check out the absolutely amazing lighting and 3 levels of AA that force things about 20-40+ meters away to have HEAVY LOD scaling and DoF to blur it all out. The game looks like crap.

            https://cdn4.dualshockers.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/TheTomorrowChildren-101.jpg?eaa32f

            and no they cant fix that because the console cannot handle high amounts of AA let alone 3 unless there are some severly cut corners. Its a game that has to be in your face to get the most detail far away stuff looks rubbish. Worst of it all theres nothing going on.

            Rime is probably going to be the best game on PS4 next year. Uncharted well i bet that will be pushed back to 2016 and if it wants rock solid 60fps there no way the visuals are going to be that impressive

            Killzone SF was average, Infamous was boring and it only sold so well becuase there was nothing else to play. Driveclub is broke but SP was alright, nothing amazing though. fact is both consoles are severely underpowered and you wont get any decent games till next gen. even then if they go for 4K the games will not look good becuase it wont be able to power it properly

          10. Bad news for you, rodent.

            PS4 2015:

            The Order 1886
            Bloodborne
            Uncharted 4
            Ratchet and Clank full remake
            Until Dawn
            Tearaway Unfolded
            Dragon Quest Heroes
            Disgaea 5

            Xbone 2015:

            Quantum Break
            Halo 5
            Fable Legends
            Scream Ride

            Don’t worry, I’m sure Phil will pull something out of his ass at last minute. Wouldn’t put any money on it considering how shit MS’ first party studios are though.

          11. Projections are worthless, you need to try harder to prove yourself. Sony HAVE NOT delivered for 2013 and 2014,they have only proven that they have under delivered. Just being honest man.

          12. Sony delivered hard in 2013 (game of the year? Remember that? Certainly wasn’t fucking Ryse) and so far have done well for 2014, matching MS for content despite their supposed “deep pockets.” 2015’s all set to be a massacre for you louts. Can’t wait for you to try and talk up another mediocre holiday line up in a year to cover for the lack of games the rest of the year.

          13. So what did your failstation 4 deliver?I’m getting confused by you mixing up your subjects.

          14. AA and AAA games all throughout the year and fantastic indie games too.

            How’s your Halo ports? Got out of the matchmaking screen yet? Dat 343i quality.

          15. Lol go look at that eurogamer article on those ps4 games you’ve been talking about

          16. lmao that “opinion” article?

            Meanwhile the facts are very different. When the PS4 has as many exclusives as the Xbone does despite MS supposedly having “deeper pockets,” something is very wrong at Redmond.

            Your Halo ports working yet?

          17. These aren’t “projections,” rat, these are hard truths. The Shitbox Done has very few games. :)

          18. Lol Pony, enjoy your masturbationstation for what it’s worth.

          19. I will. Enjoy your gimped cable box with no games for what it’s worth.

          20. PS4 is selling on game price/performance, 1st party studios, more developer support including indies and Japanese developers, PS+ value, and better PR.

  14. I’m plenty happy with the PS4 and love a nice looking linear game. Absolutely hate sand-box games. They’re all exactly the same. Generic city. Fetch quests. Infamous was just as good as any of the rest of them. Can’t wait for The Order. Really enjoyed KZ:SF. Couldn’t care less about driving games. Can’t wait for the next GOW. Honestly I don;t think either console has much in the way of games just yet and certainly don;’t think one has better games than the other at all. PS4 runs multi plats better though.
