Mr. Analog

So, PS4 and XBone release dates are now tangible, the question is; what are the "gotta have it" games.

I think I'll treat this generation much like the last, wait out the first year or so and see what games go where. I remember getting my 360 back in April '08 for GTAIV... man has it been that long already?

I got my 360 opening day... with Halo and FullAuto.  Man its been sooo long!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sometimes I Think Before I Type... Sometimes!

Mr. Analog

360 launch was in late '05 wasn't it? That is a long time now heh!

You're right, it's the games that drive the sale of the hardware.  Is there a new HALO coming out for XBone?  That might cause a purchase in my household, although a certain someone is saving for a car so spending all that certain someone's money on a new game console is probably a bad idea.
Prayin' for a 20!

Here's a mostly-current list:

The only one on my radar currently is WATCH_DOGS which I will probably get for the Wii-U

Neither support media streaming

Not unsurprising but it really illustrates the lack of understanding of how consumers use their products

The Forbs link clearly states that the XBOX one support DLNA streaming and MP3 playback.

Turns out that is news to me, and most people -> http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/129288-Microsoft-Working-to-Make-Xbox-One-DLNA-Compatible-Will-Play-CDs

I guess in the wake of the news about the PS4, MS decided to add support.

And, in convenient video format... by Yahtzee!

But really, has all that much changed when it comes to the art of hilarious fanboy baiting?


But OMG he was RIGHT about Fantasy World Dizzy, looks like a perfect combo of adventure/puzzle and side-scrolling platformer! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oas5G9po2q0

At this point all I know is that there are rumors that several next gen launch titles are still going to be frame locked at 30 fps

That said, I think Nov 22nd is the same day WATCH_DOGS comes out, which is certainly on my list of games

...just play Dizzy!

Or if you can't find an emulator port, how about one of the "parody" games it inspired?

(too bad Dizzy Returns Kickstarter was a bust)
