That's true but I pulled everything from news.xbox.com, that's how it is on there.

The only titles that stand out as must buys for me are Battlefield, Forza and Watch Dogs, for me the rest are a bit meh but to be honest I wouldn't want too many anyway.

  •  
  • Battlefield 4 (DICE, Electronic Arts)  - YES
  • Dead Rising 3 (Capcom Vancouver, Microsoft)  -  YES
  • Killer Instinct (Double Helix, Microsoft Studios) -  YES (Probably the Combo Breaker Pack only though)
  • NBA 2K14 (Visual Concepts, 2K Sports) - YES (will get on the 360 if this version is stripped down)
  • Ryse: Son of Rome (Crytek, Microsoft Studios) - MAYBE!!!
  • Watch Dogs (Ubisoft Montreal, Ubisoft)- YES

I am officially broke.... Thank goodness I started to save for Next Gen a few years in advance...

Yes, I'm getting KI...I'm leaning towards the combo breaker pack...and Watch Dogs. I'll probably get BF4 for PC if at all.

After seeing the hands on impressions for Ryse from IGN, that game is on my list of games to get.

 

So far on the X1:

 

Ryse

Killer Instinct

Crimson Dragon

DR3

 

Then possible multiplatform titles:

 

Watch Dogs

AC 4

Battlefield 4

 

To be honest, that lineup is better then most launch lineups I can remember.  I have never been interested in so many titles coming at launch. So if I do pre-order, it'll be tough deciding which will be my first game.  I can't get them all.

Not a very exciting list if i'm honest. Doesn't really seem to be a big time system seller there.

umm right. 

 

with the delay there's some games I'm goignt o have to avoid buying for the 360. but that shouldn't be a problem anyway, I'm not one of the must play it now, and the launch list alone will keep most gamers happy fo most of 2014. never mind the whole 2014 list....

That is right, actually. Many of them are sports, which aren't worth buying a new console for. Several others are available on other platforms(including pc). And the couple that would be good(say, forza, for example) aren't worth $500 on thier own.

 

But, of course, to someone like you this is probably the best lineup in the history of... ever.

It's always a good idea to base your entire decision to buy a brand new console based on LAUNCH TITLES only.   :s

So they're not porting GTAV to XBox One? The game has ambitious goals.

Even after that awful gameplay video they released of the Arena? It looks soo boring.

Let's think back a couple years ago. Many people complained about the launch lineup of the 3ds and used that as a reason not to buy one right away. So why is the xbox exempt from similar treatment?

Neither system has a strong lineup so that's why I'm not in a rush to buy either on day one.

I believe that was just a demo level to show off the combat to the press.  It was a reaction to the worries that it was all QTE stuff.  We still need to see more gameplay.

 

 

I would refrain from arguing over how good the launch lineup is anyway.  Its all subjective.  The only good thing is that there is a wide range of titles.  Both Sony's and MS' lineups are good in quantity, just pick the ones you like and be done with it.

I agree. The only thing that really had my interests was Titanfall, but that has seemingly slipped through their fingers as it's due to release on PC as well. Granted, I also completely forgot about Titanfall when I saw Destiny, even though they are different games hahah. I just didn't expect Destiny to look so good.

 

Will have to see what other content comes out later down the road.

 

So you're not going to buy a Xbox one or PS4 then I take it. 

 

Oh no, an opinion that differs from your own! Seriously man, get off his junk. You don't agree, great, get over it. :sleep2:

Honestly, both of them are arguing about what games the other should like. 

 

I get tired of people trying to attack others because they like certain games or a certain lineup.  If you like one over another, great, just don't try to claim that means something is crap.

The only exclusive title that looked somewhat interesting was Ryse. I think the setting has a lot of potential and it's an action game with a horde mode which is right up my ally. Unfortunately, after the terrible E3 showcase and the new Polygon interview video that was released today, I can safely say all of my anticipation for the game has dissipated. Now, I'm just waiting for reviews and let's-play videos to see whether it's a total abortion or worth playing at least once.

It's not a fantastic launch lineup on exclusives, but nothing Sony has announced is either.  I'm putting PC gaming on the backburner for late 2013 and all of 2014, not spending another cent on it after recent experiences if I can help it.  (Hell, just today I got Splinter Cell: Blacklist...and it won't launch, which seems entirely too normal for Ubisoft PC games.)

 

So I'll probably grab quite a few of those, though not right away.

I never buy anything by Ubi Soft or EA on PC.

 

But there's more than enough games by other companies to have plenty of fun on PC. In fact i've not played a game by EA or Ubi Soft in the last 4 years (last one was Dragon Age) and i don't miss then at all.
