Thats a whole lot of multiplats come on breh :messenger_neutral: :messenger_grinning_smiling:

Vs

Spiderman MM
God of War 2
Horizon 2
Demon Souls
Death Loop
Death Wire Tokyo
Ratchet and Clank
Final Fantasy 16

plus all the same multiplats


PS5 year 1 is undeniably better. We'll see where it goes from there but my money is on Sony

My list is only from launch through Dec of this year, not the next 2 years. There is a hell of lot more especially 1st & 3rd party exclusives if I wanted to play list wars back & forth but not interested.

All you have through Dec 2020 Is the Spiderman DLC, Demon Souls remaster and some multiplats

Looks good, thanks for putting that together. I have my eyes on:

  • Fable
  • Starfield
  • Avowed
  • Elder Scrolls VI

I thought Obsidian was working on the sequel to The Outer Worlds? Or is that not confirmed?

I'm really curious what The Initiative is up to, but I guess they're not ready to talk yet.

I just remember at the start of last gen it was all about power. Well guess what, Xbox had the most powerful consoles last gen and now this gen. So I will be enjoying most of my third party games on Xbox and PC because I find Xbox more enjoyable platform than Playstation, plus it has more power right at the start. Sony's console can wait. Then I can decide if its worth buying a Sony console for exclusives.

I assume its the reverse for Sony or PC users. At least PC players can play and use game pass without needing a console.

I must say it, I will buy a PS5 day one, that hasn't change it, but now I am also planning to purchase a Xbox series X because its first party lineup is now crazy.

my plan is unchanged.

PS5 day one, XSX in 21 or 22 depending on when the games actually come. I don’t think any of the Zenimax studios had a 20/21 game beyond the two that are timed exclusive on PS so that strategy doesn’t change.

In the meantime, GP for PC for a month here and there to rinse through the catalogue.

The funny thing about the Bethesda purchase fanboys bring up about sales and pre orders and seem to forget is that nothing changes in the immediate future. You’re not going to see a proper exclusive roll out of those Zenimax studios until 2022 or 2023 at the earliest. So why would sales be affected? This doesn’t make SX have any compelling first party launch games or Halo not get delayed and not have any development issues. It doesn’t make Sony first party games line up redundant or not anticipated. So again would sales be affected.

And by the time 2023 hits fanboys also assume Sony will be standing still the whole time and not increasing PS5’s software more than they already have currently.

Basically I wouldn’t gloat too much. You’re still playing the waiting game and going off hopes and promises with Xbox sadly.

Note: World's Edge are overseeing development of Age of Empires IV, directed by Adam Isgreen. The main grunt of the development is handled by Relic Entertainment (which are owned by Sega).
Additionally: The development of Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition is also overseen by World's Edge but mainly handled by Forgotten Empires and Tantalus Media.
