Xbox One vs PlayStation 4 Launch Line-Up Compared

Games sell a console, right? Well in that case we best look at the launch line-ups for both next-genertation consoles, because if you are still sitting on the pre-order fence, maybe the launch titles will sway your decision?

I’ve bunched up the multi-platform titles that are releasing on both consoles (top) and underneath you’ll find the timed or exclusive titles that will be coming to either console. Granted this does not cover the possibility of additional indie games that may be available digitallyon either consoleat launch, but these are the titles that are at least confirmed to be available on the console’s launch day.

So let’s compare…

*Exclusive at launch, some of these titles may also appear on the other platform after some time.

So at a quick glance, the PlayStation 4 has a few additional titles that have been confirmed for launch. Remember if you are in the UK/Europe, by the time the console releases on our shores we may see a few extra titles available for either console by the time we boot it up.

Most of Sony’s exclusive titles listed above will be available digitally, whilst Microsoft’s exclusive launch line-up consists of more retail ready titles. It is also worth noting that both consoles will have access to day one digital downloads of retail titles, of course at a price!

Both console’s launch line-up bring a smorgasbord of titles for all gamers, so when games are concerned it really comes down to your own tastes and potentially who you think will build a stronger follow up of game releases post launch. One thing is certain; both consoles will share many multi-platform releases over the coming months after launch, both digitally (including Indie games) and also at retail, however whoever cuddles the Indie developers the most will see a greater library of Indie games on their platform, and both camps are showing their pros and cons in that department.

So based on the games alone, which console are you going for? Maybe you are holding out, whilst playing GTA V? Maybe you’re getting both? Either way, let us know your pick of the next-gen crop on launch day in the comments below.
