Last week’s E3 expo gave gamers a thrill, with an abundance of information on the next-generation consoles. Now that we’ve all calmed down from the excitement it’s time to dig further into the new releases over the coming year – so let’s begin our battle of the exclusives.
Round one focuses on Sony and the PlayStation 4. The general opinion is that they came out on top last week and our current poll seems to back this up, with the majority of voters saying that they’ll part with their money for a PS4. According to The Wall Street Journal, the company is feeling pretty confident after their success at E3 and has raised its internal sales projections in line with the hype.
Check out the video below for a montage of the exclusives set for the PS4 next year, along with the 1001-Up.com team’s opinions.
P-Diddy: “Sony have two big hitters on their hands in the form of free-to-play games. By getting both PlanetSide 2 and Blacklight: Retribution ready for the PS4 release, early-adopters will have hours of gaming ahead of them without having to buy a single title. They have also secured access to a wealth of indie games and I look forward to playing Outlast, Ray’s The Dead and the new Oddworld (once it’s available). The company has definitely sucked me back into the world of PlayStation.”
Kimmy: “It’s a good start to the battle – not all of the releases are my cup-of-tea but it seems like there’s going to be something for everyone. I’m particularly looking forward to The Witness after how much I loved Braid, and Daylight looks like it’s going to be fantastic (although I don’t think I’ll be playing it on my own).”
W1ngman: “The PS4 exclusives are looking great, with InFamous: Second Son and The Order: 1886 catching my eye. In my opinion Sony is already running away with the lead in the next-gen war and these titles will really pile the pressure on Microsoft and Nintendo to catch up.”
