Xbox One Will Hardly Have Any True AAA Exclusives In 2016, And Why It Will Cause Controversy

xbox-gaming-win10-960

Xbox One fans were treated today to more footage of the most anticipated Xbox One exclusive to release in the first half of this year: Quantum Break. The game looks phenomenal, gamers are getting Alan Wake and it’s DLC bundled with the pre-order, pre-ordering on the Xbox One also gives a free copy of the game on Windows 10, and the previews sound good. So, what’s the problem? Well, Microsoft  dropped the bomb that Quantum Break is also coming to Windows 10.

The gaming community has since focused it’s attention on this announcement, which is a shame because the game itself should be the focus of the articles today as it truly does look fantastic. Alas, it was the controversial announcement of Quantum Break going to the PC that stole the headlines today. The Xbox community in particular has been very polarized over this announcement with what seems to be an almost even split of gamers who either are against this move or those who are welcome to it. This announcement didn’t come as much of a surprise to many as this seems to be a trend of Microsoft’s new vision of unifying the Xbox and Windows platforms. It’s a difficult situation: Xbox One isn’t as successful as the competition and there’s a lot of revenue to be made from PC sales so the decision of ever closer unity between the two platforms is both a good and a bad thing.

Personally, I see no problem with the unification of the two platforms since Microsoft owns the Xbox platform and might as well own the PC too since their Windows OS is on the vast majority of PC’s out there. While Xbox will always have a fanbase due to the simple fact that many gamers just enjoy the ease and simplicity of a closed system console, there are fears that by putting games that were previously announced as Xbox One exclusives on Windows 10, there’s a question over whether there is enough incentive left going forward for gamers who aren’t already fans of the Xbox platform to pick up an Xbox One because their exclusives can be picked up on PC so it could hurt the longevity of the console’s success. Let’s remember that PC hardware is still arguably fairly more expensive than consoles which will mean it’ll be a long time before consoles become obsolete.

In their Xbox Wire post about Xbox’s outlook for 2016, Xbox gave the following list of major games for 2016:

  • Gears of War 4 (Xbox One) – Multiplayer Beta in Spring 2016/Launch in Fall 2016
  • Quantum Break (Xbox One) – April 5, 2016
  • Halo Wars 2 (Xbox One & Windows 10) – Fall 2016
  • Crackdown 3 (Xbox One) – Multiplayer in Summer 2016
  • Fable Legends Open Beta (Xbox One & Windows 10) – Spring 2016
  • ReCore (Xbox One & Windows 10) – 2016
  • Sea of Thieves (Xbox One & Windows 10) – 2016
  • Gigantic (Xbox One & Windows 10) – 2016
  • Killer Instinct: Season 3 (Xbox One & Windows 10) – March 2016
  • Gears of War: Ultimate Edition (Windows 10) – Spring 2016
  • Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition (Xbox One & Windows 10) – Spring 2016
  • Cobalt (Xbox One, Xbox 360 & Steam) – Feb. 2, 2016

As you can see the only games that remain Xbox One exclusives today are Gears of War 4 and Crackdown 3. However, Gamespot also made a slip up today that Gears of War 4, arguably Microsoft’s biggest Xbox One exclusive for 2016, will be releasing on Windows 10 also. It’s unsure whether this was just a mistake or if Gamespot were letting slip of an announcement that might be coming at a later date. This begs the question whether or not the Xbox One console will have any true AAA exclusives by the end of 2016.

It’s important to note also that the benefits of bringing new IP to both Xbox One and Windows 10 far outweigh the negatives of doing so as very simply, bringing a new IP to both Xbox One and Windows 10 equals more sales which equals more revenue which equals better odds of receiving a sequel for said game. So, seeing a game like Quantum Break or a game like Sea of Thieves go to PC I believe many gamers don’t see too much of a problem with this due to the fact that the benefits do outweigh the negatives for the Xbox One console. However, games like Halo and Gears of War have become core system sellers for the Xbox console and were they to be announced for Windows 10 also it does leave the problem that many gamers who aren’t traditionally Xbox gamers might have less incentive to pick up an Xbox console, which could spell problems for the Xbox One console as a part of Microsoft’s vision because if Xbox sales get even poorer, Microsoft could possibly shift their focus more to PC which would be to the detriment of loyal, hardcore Xbox fans.

It’s inevitable that the new leadership of Xbox under Phil Spencer and Satya Nadella have a more open thinking vision of unifying the Xbox One and PC and that their job is too deliver on their vision and Xbox One exclusives going to the PC has both it’s benefits and it’s drawbacks and the best thing that Microsoft could do now is offer more transparency on their vision and just let Xbox One gamers know the details of their vision and where the Xbox console is heading in Microsoft’s future plans. It’s probably the lack of transparency and the fact that Microsoft waited this long before announcing the Windows 10 version of Quantum Break that lead to the controversy that ensued today as it’s a fair criticism of the way that today’s announcement unfolded due to the fact that the Xbox team had clarified previously that Quantum Break was an Xbox One exclusive.

If you look at the competition, Sony has a perception of being very console focused and the PS4 being the centre of everything that they do in gaming. Their exclusives, even their new IP’s like Bloodborne and The Order: 1886 release exclusively on the PS4 which means quite simply that if you want to play these games, you have to own a PS4. Whether this is part of the reason for their huge success this generation or not is debatable but it’s clear that Sony’s commitment to their console and console gamers has given them a better perception since the beginning of this console generation.

In closing, there’s been a lot of over-reacting in the gaming community today over the announcement of Quantum Break going to PC and the controversy has been aplenty. The future may still be a little foggy over the Xbox One and it’s exclusives but we must remember that, for the most part, there seems to be more benefits of games being released exclusively on both Xbox One and PC rather than Xbox One alone as Xbox One isn’t the hottest console this generation and there’s much more revenue to be had from releasing on both platforms. However, it’s a little bit less clear on games like Gears of War 4 and Xbox’s main AAA exclusives such as Halo and Forza too since these games serve as big incentives for gamers who aren’t already invested in the Xbox to pick up an Xbox One but aside from these games, it’s also important for Xbox to expand their portfolio with more variety and if releasing games on both Xbox One and PC helps Microsoft to make more quality new IP’s then it doesn’t sound too bad to me.

How do you feel about Xbox One exclusives going to Windows 10? Do you think it’s a good thing or a bad thing? Get involved in the discussion by dopping a comment and letting us know your thoughts.

    When it comes to AAA console exclusives, the xbox one is literally obliterating the ps4 this year aswell.

    Gears of War 4
    Quantum Break
    Halo Wars 2
    Crackdown 3
    Fable Legends
    ReCore
    Sea of Thieves
    Gigantic
    Killer Instinct: Season 3
    Forza horizon 3

    vs

    Uncharted 4
    Gt sport
    Horizon
    and some jrpgs that a bunch of asians will care about
    im trying to think of more AAA ps4 games but the rest look like rubbish.

    Looks like a third straight year won by microsoft this is really getting embarassing on sony’s behalf

    • TristanPR77

      1) cherry picking games for making a list is very stupid. Is very obvious that’s not the full list of PS4 exclusive games but looks like you like lying to yourself.

      2) xbox doesn’t have any true exclusives anymore. They are on another platform, which is call multiplatform.

      Also, the same thing was said last holidays with the “best xbox game line up in history” and yet, the PS4 won all the holidays lol.

      3) Dark souls 3 being a better version of Bloodborne wow. You have to be a psych blind fanboy to say something like that.

      4) a third year won by Microsoft? Ok, what kind of drug are you using? You don’t even seem to be living in this dimension.

      • JoinTheRest

        Come on dude stop living in the denial wow the whole fanbase Is in denial it’s hilarious. Go watch dark souls it looks EXACTLY like Bloodborne that’s why people called bb a dark souls clone. And yes those games are console exclusive dude console gamers and pc gamers are two different things. Microsoft owns windows which is what you need to play their games which makes them Microsoft exclusive. Sony still doesnt have more then one decent game and that decent game is coming to xbox next month. That makes the ps4 library literally unexistant. Ps4 won what? Sales? Lmfao thanks shareholders I’ll care when I buy some shares

        • andy

          Forza 6 and Halo 5 won the year for Xbone last year??? I think its you in denial mate. A game relased in September (yes 11 whole months since Sunset Overdrive lol) and another disappointing game by 343 (fourth times the charm too eh). Although what was anybody expecting after the disappointing Halo 4, Halo Spartan Assault and Halo MCC?

          • JoinTheRest

            Halo 5 alone at this point obliterates the whole ps Library stop living in detail and accept it princess your library is full of Indie and anime garbage

          • Tha-Truth

            Halo 5 is a trash game for braindamaged morons as evidenced by it’s laughable Metacritic score. The fact that you consider cheap, rotten garbage like that worth playing just shows that Xbox gamers have a rather disgusting lack of standards and self – respect. Your library is full of multi – platform titles and garbage games that flop on Metacritic. Just like your trash excuse for a console flops in the sales charts.

        • Fanboy For Life

          I have a PS4 and GTX 980 Ti, so fuck you all.

        • datdude

          This poor schmuck is so hurt over the butt kicking his console of choice is receiving (in sales, in number of exclusives available, in average rating for said exclusives, etc. etc.) the poor critter has to resort to making some nonsense list to convince himself his life doesn’t suck. Here you go son, a partial list of ps4 exclusives for 2016 (and miracle of miracles, most of these are full exclusives, unlike your list, LOL).

          Uncharted 4
          The Last Guardian

          • datdude

            Virgin loser who humps his mommy says what??

          • Kelarth

            I’m sick of this generation. Last gen the only games that were relevant to PS fans were big AAA exclusives and JRPG’s of course. Now it’s indies, cheap remakes, and crowd funded games, basically anything that’s now on the PS4 and somewhat exclusive. That says a lot. PS is circling the toilet and fans aren’t helping by cheering Sony on for their minimal efforts.

            The PS4 fails when compared to the PS3 and even more so with the Xbox 360. The Xbox 360 had over 3300 indies in total and none of them mattered when it came to comparing game libraries between both the PS3 and Xbox 360. Do you remember? By todays standards the Xbox 360 would be a beastly console! Also, tons of PS2 like exclusive third party support due to it’s year head start and even a somewhat decent little number of JRPG’s. The PS4 is definitely sucking eggs despite what cheerleaders like you say.

          • datdude

            Riiiggghhhtttttt. The 360 is a great console, but the games for it trailed off significantly from 2010 to the present…compared to the ps3, the games released for the 360 over that same time frame are abysmal. The 360 definitely had my dollars early in the gen, with games like Mass Effect, Bioshock, Cod Modern Warfare (online community was superior), and Gears of War. Late last gen it was all ps3, with games like Uncharted 2, God of War 4, MGS4, The Last of Us, etc. etc.

            Also, the 360 had an atrocious reliability record. I owned 5 myself, 2 of which I purchased, the other 3 replaced under warranty. Almost every friend I know that had a 360 was in the same boat, with many “forced” to buy 4 or 5 360’s over the course of the generation. Sad and unacceptable. You are now seeing just how many of that consoles sales numbers were inflated due to red ring by the butt kicking the xbox one is getting from the ps4 at retail.

            As for the ps4, it has twice the number of games available for it as does the xbox one, and those games are more highly rated as well. In addition, it’s got more first party games in development, more 3rd party tie in’s, and more indies coming to the platform. If that equals “fail” to you, you’re not really a gamer. Sorry.

          • Kelarth

            The 360 had more games overall than the PS3 and that’s a fact! Sony’s first party didn’t change that when are you people going to understand this? The 360 was the “PS2” of generation 7 and that’s why it sold well just be reasonable about it and accept it. Using RRoD to explain the 360’s success is just pathetic. That’s just foolish N4G fanboy rhetoric used to downplay the 360’s success and deep down you know it! Why was the PS2 so successful? Ask yourself that. I’ll guarantee that it’s 18 month head start on the GameCube and original Xbox where the biggest reasons for it. Look at all the big third party exclusivity the PS2 lost to the 360. That’s why MS jumped out early and risked it all. But who cares about the truth because then you may have to accept that the 360 was a better system than the PS3. Right? Right.

            Like I said before the PS4 has mostly all indies along with JRPG’s and cheap remakes. Nothing you say will change that fact. People buy the PS4 because everyone else is doing it too not because it has all these great big AAA exclusives games.You think everyones dying to play Everyones Gone To Rapture? Higher rated or not don’t kid yourself. The PS4 is nothing special and Sony’s first party in this generation has taken a nose dive the way I see it. If that doesn’t make me a “gamer” by your standards I couldn’t care less.

        • wow

          Exactly, If I had a PS4 the only exclusives I’d get is: No man sky (no more than $20 CAD, 15$USD) and uncharted 4
          Thank god Rocket League + exclusives are finally coming to XB1.

          XB1 exclusives: Gears of War 4, Crackdown 3, Quantum Break are all going to be sweet.
          Crackdown 3 will actually be unplayable on a PS4 hardware. Finally we are going to see the power of Azure. I’m skeptical of DX12 on XB1 but apparently it will be utilizing it. I’m very excited to see what they do with the game overall.

          • andy

            Rocket League is one of those Indie games you all like to complain about, oh and what a shock, its comes to Xbox over 6 months later like every other indie game this gen. Halo 5 was COMPLETELY worth avoiding according to friends who LOVE the Halo franchise.

          • wow

            actually I took back Reach within 1 hour of playing it, I haven’t played halo this hard since halo 1 and 2. This halo has the same mechanics as the old ones which is better for pro. Reach is like BO3 and AW to the halo franchise.
            Halo 5 is back on track, every single MP game I play on a new map. There are virtually 100s of MP maps with 50+ different gametypes.

            Rocket league is just fun

          • Kelarth

            Yet millions bought Halo 5. Btw, you know the majority of reviews heavily praised Halo 5 for it’s multiplayer, right?

        • andy

          I think we just have to look at your opinion of Game of E3 2015 universally, Horizon Zero Dawn, and we know what kind of a moron you are.

          And how do you know Quantum Break can’t be cleared in 2 hours like every other Remedy game this past 15 years you utter moron???

          • JoinTheRest

            Evolve won e3 the year before LMAOOOOOOOOO plus look at the developers working on horizon their last game was the worst fps in history so I’ll pass thanks princess I have better games to play

          No problem owning both but just don’t become an obnoxious flip-flop fanboy because of it. I’ve seen it many times before. Those types are more irritating to me than PS fanboys.

      • Bobby Griffin

        Indie games and ports from vita. Lol if the xbox counted indies as AAA EXCLUSIVES the list would be longer than this blog

        • Orion Pax

          i would rather have indie and vita ports than no games like the xbox one

          • Kelarth

            You’re an obnoxious troll. The XB1 has plenty of games to play don’t be a jackass. I have 4 XB1’s in my house as well as 1 PS4. I wouldn’t have bothered buying that many if there were no games for it. Sheesh!

            Oh, and I really like XBL, I prefer it and so does the family.

            and what the fuck are you talking about?

            I’d rather have no games than Indies and vita ports which is basically the whole ps Library plus ps doesn’t even have more than a single playable exclusive which is laughable lmfao

          • Orion Pax

            then you should be glad with the xb1 because it has no games

          • Bobby Griffin

            The xbox has great games . Boy the hate is real with these kids

          • Orion Pax

            you mean that THE PC and xbox HAVE great games

          • Bobby Griffin

            Same thing.

          • Orion Pax

            it’s not the same thing, in a couple of years xbox is dead without exclusives, your daddy Phil lies to you that it’s going to be ok for the little box, but we all know what’s going to happen in the end

      • Could you imagine what a list like this would look like for either PC or Wii U?
        It would be like, nothing. Nothing Based at least. All of those Based PS4 games are Based.

    • Tha-Truth

      The only thing that’s embarrassing is the sales figures of Microsoft’s pathetic, last – gen, peasant console for scrubs. It’s only the self – deluded morons like you that are still trying to apologise on Microsoft’s behalf, all of the educated gaming community has moved over to the PS4. Deal with it or wallow in your own pitiful ignorance forever.

      • JoinTheRest

        I’m sorry can’t hear you with that one exclusive of yours hahaha look how butthurt you are lmfao come to the bright side princess only thing Os4 is good for is multiplats and Indies hahahahaha

        • Tha-Truth

          The only one who’s butthurt here is you. You’re the only person on the entire planet sad enough to spend 24/7 of his worthless, pathetic, disgusting existence on the internet all day, every day, trying to damage control for his console being a complete and utter FAILURE in the sales charts.
          By the way, PS4 clowned the Poverty – Box in the January NPD AGAIN. Guess why? Yeah…because the Xbox is a weak, pathetic last – gen POS with no games that no self – respecting gamer would even think of wasting money on. The sooner you accept that, the sooner you’ll be able to live a normal life and stop acting like a deranged fangirl.

            Hahahahaha sales lmao kinect adventures has sold more than any ps game in existence making it better then anything Sony has made HAHAHAHAHA according to your retarded logic of a complete brain-dead Retard. We’re having an argument about games and you bring up sales which further proves my point that Sony literally has no games hahahahahahahaha sooner you accept that and the fact that your drunk filthy parents raised a son in denial the sooner you will be happy lmfaooooooooooooooo

          • Tha-Truth

            I can see that your unfortunate upbringing at the hands of a pair of inbred, inebriated, spasticated, palm – dragging hillbilly parents has caused you some serious mental health issues. Your grip on reality is obviously slim at best and you clearly prefer delusion to despair, that’s why you try and hide your own spineless, insecure cowardice behind a wall of fake laughter because you’re too much of an inbred, retarded mongrel dog to form a proper argument.
            It’s a shame you’re too much of a weak, pathetic, spineless cowardly little chicken shit to be honest with yourself. Your mom isn’t like that at all – she’s honest about everything. Like how she’s honest about being the #1 sex slave to all the Mujahedeen extremists in Afghanistan where your trashy little POS of a mum prostitutes herself out to every man she can find. Your filthy, hairy, smelly momma who smells like old ballsacks spends 24/7 with her head buried in the sand like an ostrich while she takes it up the bum so that she can pay for your pathetic, inferior Xbox pauper console. Too bad…all that time your mom spends with her ass in the air still isn’t going to change the fact that the Xbox is a pathetic, worthless, FAILURE at retail. LMFAO. Consider yourself pwned, and have a good day.

    • SiliconNooB

      Most of the people I know bought a PS4 for the Japanese exclusives.

      There is nothing that I want to play on Xbone that I can’t just play on my PC.

      • JoinTheRest

        Nothing I want to play on ps4 that I can’t play on an iPhone

        • SiliconNooB

          I wouldn’t expect an Xbone bro like yourself to be interested in awesome
          looking games like Project Setsuna and Persona 5 – so that is perfectly
          understandable.

          I would however suggest that you perhaps do not represent the interests of the typical Playstation user.

          • Kelarth

            Keep your Japanese pedo games to yourself.

          • SiliconNooB

            I am tempted to say something about pearls and swine- but I fear that it would be lost on your good self. ^_^

      • Kelarth

        Your own personal preference and opinions. So what.

  • Tha-Truth

    It’s no wonder the Xbox DONE is losing all it’s games to the PC. Microsoft are throwing the towel in because they know the Xbox is nothing more than a weak, pathetic, poor man’s excuse for a console and sales prove that.
    The Xbox has been getting clowned by the PS4 in the sales charts every single week since the two consoles released and that’s down to the fact that the Xbox “Exclusives” that the sheepboys like to cry about are nothing but cheap, garage, last – gen shovelware trash that aren’t worth buying.
    The Xbox has nothing but low quality trash for its games and that’s why the console Is such a hilarious, pathetic, worthless, unwanted FAILURE in the sales charts and always will be. All the real gamers are taking their money elsewhere, it’s only the delusional, non – gaming drecks that are still trying to damage control for Microsoft’s pathetic poor man’s alternative for a console at this point.

    • Ucouldntbemorewrong

      Actually XB1 is doing extremely well as is PS4 against their last gens counterparts.
      Calling XB1 a failure is like calling the PS3 a failure last gen, due to most of it’s life span playing catch up to 360, until the end where PS3 did eventually surpass it. I had a shit load of fun with the PS3 and clearly that was not failure. XB1 is finally coming into its own hopefully with Quantum Break, Crackdown 3, ReCore and Cuphead. With the PS4 and the Xb1 it’s a great year to game and be a gamer, that’s Tha-Truth!

      • Kelarth

        Both Tha-Truth and Tom Hanks are bigots and both have an alarming phobia toward the Xbox brand. You won’t get any reasonable discussion with those obnoxious tools.

        • Ucouldntbemorewrong

          well JoinTheRest is no piece of pie either, just sayin.

        • Tom Hanks

          PS4 is the only console for REAL GAMERS.

          Either learn that or be put in front of a firing squad, bitch.

          • Kelarth

            You’re not a real gamer you’re a delusional fanboy and an obnoxious bigot. Bitch!

          • Tom Hanks

            I’m sorry, I was too busy playing a real console for REAL GAMERS to respond to you sooner.

            Go fuck off and drown in your father’s semen.

    • JoinTheRest

      Again, when Sony has more then one playable exclusive come talk to us lmfao until then enjoy your anime and Indie rubbish games kid. Maybe mommy will buy you the better console one day. Sales? Lmfao hope you enjoy them because that’s all you have hahahahaha

      • Tha-Truth

        Funny how PS4 games like Bloodborne and The Last Of Us have higher scores on Metacritic than ANY of the cheap, shoddy, last – gen trash that passes for an “Exclusive” on the Xbox DONE. Enjoy your trash games for paupers and your pauper console which is a failure at retail, kiddo.
        Ignorant, two – faced garbage like you are the very reason why the Poverty Box is such a worthless, pathetic, FAILURE in the sales charts. You spend all your pathetic existence on the internet talking about how great the console is but when it comes time to put your money where your mouth is you don’t even buy the console because deep down inside even a moron like you knows it’s a worthless, cheap piece of garbage.

    • Tom Hanks

      You’re absolutely right.

      I think every Shitbox Done owner should be rounded up and put into a concentration camp and FUCKING MURDERED.

      PS4 is the console for the REAL GAMERS.

      • Kreten

        Pee station 4, and sony zombies at it lol

    • Kreten

      You mean PS4 pro is a pathetic excuse for a console!

  • Edonus

    Reality is this is really more of a marketing problem than anything else.
    I have two systems….. and I say to you…..
    Both systems have strong 3rd party support
    Both have exclusives….
    With One the exclusives are only on that system
    With the other some of the exclusives will be on PC as well but if you buy the game you get it on both.
    For people like me… I don’t really have any interest in gaming on PC but I may check it out since I have one.

  • Edonus

    Now the catch phrase is going to be “True Exclusives”.
    PC gamers is a different market…….. when I decided which console to buy I decided between the X1 and Ps4. Gaming on the PC is not that big with console gamers and the data shows this…… Look at all the 3rd party games…. they sell more on console thus PC is not a real threat.

  • andy

    So pretty much the same as 2013, 2014 and 2015 lol.
    I’ve been saying the past 2 years that Forza 5, Sunset Overdrive and Forza 6 can only get you so far. Everything else has been PC cross games, 360 cross games and remasters.

    • JoinTheRest

      Yeah 2016 is the same as the previous three years where Microsoft wiped the floor with Sony and all its exclusives

  • ambleThought

    Thank you M$ for creating then killing the xbox. One product that cannot even be named properly. One product we never needed. One product to make as much ca$h from gamers since the PC players won’t pay for your LIVE and pointless accessories.. M$ just go back to PC gamers and give them the service they expect from playing on Windows for decades. Try to see the bigger picture.

  • atomicjuicer

    It undermines the value and importance of consoles. PCs have no standard they come in all shapes and sizes so console exclusivity gives developers the ability to lock down and optimize the game.

    Bad business practices from microsoft again. Just like the way they undermined the tomb raider brand.

    They are misleading the gaming community for their own gain.

  • Tom Hanks

    Once again, PS4 rises to the occasion and proves that it’s the console of choice for REAL GAMERS.
    The numbers don’t lie you Shitbox Done owning scum. You’re all part of the problem and it’s satisfying to see you all get fucked into oblivion.

    • JoinTheRest

      Enjoy those sales because with no games that’s all you have lmfao

      • Tom Hanks

        We’ve got plenty of games fuckface, and they don’t end up on PC either. So go die in a house fire you Shitbox Done owning lowlife motherfucker.

        • JoinTheRest

          Plenty of Indies on the indiestation 4 and they don’t end up on pc because Sony doesn’t own pc Sony is broke as fuck lmfao they can’t even invest into making decent games anymore I mean look at the ps4 library hahaha if their games were half decent then pc gamers would probably want them but nope only the retarded fanbase loves trash so badly

          • Tom Hanks

            Yes, because the garbage Shitbox Done gamers have been willingly choking down worked out so well.

            Name one reason to buy that dumpster of a console? More importantly, name one reason to buy it that isn’t something that’ll end up on PC and run higher than 900p?

            No answer? Oooooh. DEM FACTS.

            Now drink a mass amount of wood varnish and keel over dead. You fucking scumbag. Your console is the equivalent of Section 8 housing. Fuck you.

            PS4 is the console for REAL GAMERS.

          • JoinTheRest

            Haha you wouldn’t be this upset If you had games to play hahahaha

          • Tom Hanks

            And you wouldn’t be commenting if you could actually see your welfare line games outside of their blurry 720 to 900p glory. Better get your eyes checked. Your Roku box is underpowered on EVERY SINGLE TITLE as per usual.

            Watch out for dem timed exclusives though, right? Really knocking this generation out of the park.

            You can jerk off into a tube sock over the occasional game until it’s available on PC a month or two later. Or in the case of Quantum Shit, get it on a better platform from day one.

            Still waiting for that ONE reason to own the Shitbox Done.

            PS4 is for the REAL GAMERS. Faggot.

          • JoinTheRest

            HAHAHA is your mother a whore because you’re a very angry 12 year old? Only AAA next gen exclusive at 1080p 60fps forza 5 and 6 lmfaooooooooooooooo that crap station can’t even manage 20fps with Bloodborne HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHHAHA difference between me and you is I actually have both consoles unlike you tightass that’s why I know for a FACT that Sony can’t make decent exclusives because I’ve tried them all and they’re all shit hahaha youre still waiting for greatness lmfaooooooooooooooo maybe next year you will get the second playable exclusive in three years lmfaoooooooooooooo so embarrassed for you princess 🙂 mwa

  • JonasCampos

    wow

  • CCM

    I’m personally not bothered by this. I don’t own a gaming-capable PC. I don’t plan on building or buying one anytime soon. Therefore I’ll be buying ALL of the Xbox One console-exclusives on console and enjoy them. At the same time, I think it’s great that people who choose to play on PC can also experience these titles (except for all the Master Race asshats, they can just go update some drivers or run a virus scan for all I care).

  • LarZen

    It’s only fanboys that have problems with this. End of discussion.

  • You’re also forgetting one major point and that is that the Xbox One and Done? It simply isn’t Based.
    Fact of the matter is, all the true Based exclusives are on PS4 (like Kojima’s game and SFV).

    There isn’t a single platform available on the market that has more exclusives than Based PS4.

    • JoinTheRest

      Worst exclusives of all time you’re blinded dude stop worshipping your Sony God he is laughing at you

  • Illusive Man

    people will still buy consoles.

    Microsoft will now just make money from games published to the Windows store.

    Long term I can’t see Sony with the combined might of all Windows 10 devices, including the Xbox.

    • Bilal Prince-Ali

      lol.. ok… because Multiplat games generally sell better on PC than on consoles right..? ahhaha dickhead! -__-

  • PrivatePyle

    To all PS4, Xbox and (almost forgot to mention) PC elitist fanboys!… Stop having these dumb ass debates or just die… slowly. While you pre-cum non iq having morons are at it, let the rest of the civilized people just enjoy some games.
