Rob shines a spotlight on five upcoming titles that you’ll want to hang on to your current gen consoles to play…
With autumn well and truly setting in, the biggest event of the gaming calendar is almost upon us. Forget E3, Gamescom and the Tokyo Games Show; they all pale in comparison to what is to come. In just under two months both Microsoft and Sony’s next generation systems will finally be making their way into the hands of consumers, and with climbing pre-order numbers and arguably the strongest launch lineups in recent memory, they are going to make quite the splash.
With exclusives like Dead Rising 3, Forza Motorsport 5 and Ryse: Son of Rome available from day one, the Xbox One is a strong contender. On the other hand the PS4 touts DriveClub, Killzone Shadow Fall and Knack in a similar fashion, all while shipping at a reduced price. As for third-party content, both machines are awash in a sea of fantastic titles, such as Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Call of Duty: Ghosts and Watch Dogs, that are bound to please gamers no matter which console they choose.
However, before you go trading in your eight year old devices, take a moment to think about the slew of amazing titles for Xbox 360 and PS3 that have yet to be released. From artistic endeavours such as Japan Studio’s Rain, to AAA blockbusters like the newly released Grand Theft Auto V, there’s still plenty of life in the current gen yet.
