Can people not remember things that happened even just this past generation? Sony is notorious for taking a while to get their first party momentum going. Their exclusives are coming, and are in fact the greatest strength of the brand. The PS3 is a perfect example of what happens when their huge number of studios begins releasing their flagship titles; the console clawed its way out from the bottom, which paid off immensely. While Nintendo and Microsoft were both extremely front-loaded, PS3's waves of fantastic exclusives are what gave it legs and caught it up to the 360.
The same sort of release schedule is poised to happen very soon. Obviously the difference this time is that Sony doesn't need this boost to become competitive. This is how Sony operates though, and is a big reason why they usually dominate the market. It's strange that people seem to be completely oblivious to this. Do that many people really not know anything about generations before the PS360?
2016 onward is going to be an awesome time for PS4 owners :)
Things aren't looking great for Xbox One
Let's consider some facts here:
>PS4 this year alone outsold Xbox One's entire LTD
>MS tried to save face by saying the Xbox One is outpacing the 360. However, this is a very misleading statement as the 360 faced supply issues and didn't pick up sales into actually much later (its peak year was 2011) and had long legs. On the opposite end of the spectrum, Xbox One had no supply issues and is already showing to be very frontloaded.
>Xbox One only sees success in essentially two regions: UK an US.
>In essentially every region of growth (Latam, Asia and the pacific, Middle East, Africa, etc.) PS4 has a significant lead
>In all of Europe (minus UK), PS4 has 70-90%+ marketshare
>Last quarter PS4 outsold Xbox One over 3:1. This ratio continues to widen as time progresses
Gentlemen, how do we save the Xbox One?
This happened too with PS1, until FF7 came out it only had 3 games and struggled against Saturn and N64.
The thing is that this thing won't have nothing on the scale of an exclusive FF7, Gran Turismo or MGS
So before this thread dwelves into those stupid console-shill pics or whatever the fuck they're called, can someone tell me what Exclusives that are must haves for the PS4?
