Exactly the reason I'm more excited for the Xbox. I'm really excited to see what the PS4 has in store for future releases as well, since its Japanese support will undoubtedly overshadow that of the Xbox. Deep Down, and Earth Defense Force are selling the PS4 for me right now, but I can't pass up Killer Instinct and Dead Rising 3. Hopefully Ryse isn't as boring as the E3 demo, that game has some serious potential.

Ryse just looks like one big quicktime event =/

Zoo Tycoon is interesting to me though, haha. Either way, probably won't snag a One early or maybe ever.

Jill Owns All I think the problem is that people have expectations of games that look that good. That it's an action title, complicated, open world, or something really heavy on gameplay.

Ryse shouldn't have to be the game that so many people think it needs to be. So it's a lot of quick-time events. That doesn't mean it can't be extraordinary at time and prove to be one of the best looking console games ever created.

It's going to be beautiful, yeah, I just don't really have enough fun with QTE though. It feels lke a "fake" gaming experience to me somehow.

Remember Sony PlayStation consoles always mature with time, so in the next two-three years, PS4 will have more (exclusive) games than XBone! Remember 98% of PS4 games will be full 1080p compared to 99% of XBone games runs at only 720p.

When it comes to games that actually interest me... X1 has Dead Rising/PS4 has Knack and Killzone. For me the PS4 definitely wins easily. I've learned my lesson already though... never buy a launch console on the first day... and at least not during the first three months.

While I'm mostly just interested in Killzone... I can see why one might prefer XBone's launch lineup more.

But PS4's future games shall all be stellar! Stellar, I say!! And.... 1080p!

No interest in XOne launch lineup. I'm not into FPS, so Killzone and Titanfall are off for me too. But I'm looking forward Warframe and Knack. The only game that would make me buy a XOne is Quantum Break because I love Alan Wake. On PS4 I'm really excited for The Order: 1886 and inFamous: Second Son (that's how an open world game should look like on next gen - sorry, Dead Rising 3).

It's really not. The initial footage did a very bad job at conveying what Ryse is. Ryse plays like God of War mixed with Arkham Asylum and that's how it plays most of the time. Yes it has quick time events for finishers but in no way is it different to how God of War had them for finishers. Ryse is a typical action game with some of the best graphics and animation out of the next-gen launch titles and its fun to play. It's not just one big quick time event though.

Throwing out random percentages doesn't help your post at all. Yes the PlayStation 4 is looking more competent when it comes to resolution right now but there are a myriad of reasons why Xbox One may be under-performing;

The first could simply be that the hardware difference is just that great. I don't quite believe that as I know my hardware quite well and a .5 TeraFLOP difference in compute performance between PS4 and Xbox One should equate to slightly better frame rate on PS4, but not the huge difference we are seeing here. This leads me to the second possible issue and it's driver support. If you don't know hardware needs software (drivers) to tell it how to run efficiently and while the hardware may have been set in stone for some time now the software is a constantly moving target. If Xbox One had slightly worse drivers in the run up to release then the power output of the parts would have been lower which would be what developers aimed at.

There are many reasons. Though that's not why I singled out your post. The claim that 98% of PS4 games will run at 1080p is simply not true. At launch yes it's true, but in 4 years when gamers are still demanding better graphics than the game before it? No, resolution will be the first thing to go. We'll likely see Killzone: Shadow Fall running native 1080p/60FPS but Shadow Fall 3 running at 720p/60FPS as gamers will want the sequels to continually look better and better while the fact is these systems are not powerful enough to deliver that. So while PS4 has the upper hand now and may continue to if Xbox One's woes are hardware based and not driver based, but in the end both consoles are going to be launching gorgeous end of generation titles that run at lower than 1080p resolution.

Interested to know where you got your figure of .5 TF difference in computing power. Articles I've read put it higher then that.

I'm personally going to wait a few months and let the masses test before forking out the cash for one of these beasts.

TBH, even though I'm getting a PS4, I'm more interested in the One's lineup. Ryse is something I'd try, and Dead Rising too (though I didn't really get far into either of the previous games).

Basically, if I get a launch title that isn't a digital re-release, it's going to be Knack...Even though I'm a touch indifferent to it.

At least it won in "one" category!

"XBone!"

Yeah the Xbone does have the better launch day games thanks to KI but counting non-launch games as well I'd give the PS4 the edge thanks to Infamous:SS.Rime, and The Order. o:

GoW actually punishes you if you mess up a QTE. :C
Ryse doesn't.

Since we're doing list wars, might as well chuck this in haha. Granted they're not day 1 games.

It may be down to having a good PC but I still prefer the Xbox One list there just seem to be more titles in their smaller list that appeal to me. I mean the PS4 list is obviously made far longer thanks to the indie titles but I can play pretty much all of them now. That said I'm also getting the PS4 when inFamous launches so I may be just that impartial I'm just cherry picking from each list and I'm finding more games in the Xbox One list so far I want to play.
