Console Retrospective: How Do The PS4 And Xbox One Launch Lineups Compare To Prior Generations?

Posted on Sunday, August 25 @ 11:35:00 Eastern by Alex_Osborn
In case you haven't heard, Sony and Microsoft are launching new video game consoles this November. With new hardware brings new games. Historically, the software lineups that coincide with console releases aren't particularly compelling. However, launch lineups have definitely changed, as each generation brings with it its own unique batch of games. Let's take a look back and see just how much the PlayStation and Xbox launch lineups have evolved over the years.



PlayStation Exclusive Games


PlayStation 4:
  • DriveClub
  • Killzone Shadow Fall

  • Mobile Suite Gundam: Crossfire
  • Resistance: Fall of Man
  • Ridge Racer 7
  • Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom

If it wasn't obvious to you before, it should be readily apparent now: Sony's game systems have never had particularly strong launches as far as exclusive software goes. Virtually all of the games listed above have been long forgotten. That said, both Killzone: Shadow Fall and Knack look somewhat promising, so perhaps this time around it won't be quite as rough for the PlayStation faithful.
