for decades the xbox 360 was criticized for being a "shooter box" for most of its exclusives are well... shooters. halo, gears, crackdown, halo, gears, halo are a list of exclusives that are well, you guessed it. SHOOTERS! the top selling games are also shooters. CoD, halo, CoD, halo, CoD , GTA, Gears, Gears and so on.
but now the new gen has arrived and it seems that the roles have switched. while xbox one (still a ridiculous name btw) has games such as ryse, project spark, forza, Killer Instinct, Crimson Dragon, and D4 the PS4 isnt so much varied when it comes to genre
then lets look at the PS4's biggest list of exlusives.
Killzone - Shooter
Infamous - shooeter (not from a gun, from his hand)
the order 1886 - shooter
yeah yeah, there is knack and drive club, but lets look at future games
- Sony Santa monica - arguably (well realistically) the best hack and slash developer in the world are creating a new IP, and what is it? a SHOOTER! instead of a hack and slash game they are making a new sci-fi shooter!
- GG's new IP, seriously anybody expecting this one NOT to be a shooter?
- Naughty Dog - uncharted 4, a SHOOTER
then lets look at the list of some of the biggest third party games on the PS4
watch dogs - shooter (showed at E3 and PS4 reveal, exclusive content)
CoD - shooter
BattleField 4 - shooter
The Division - Shooter
Destiny - shooter (showed at E3 and PS4 reveal, exclusive content)
look at the list of the pre-orders for the PS4
and Killzone Shadow fall
sure their are games like Assassin's creed and drive club and knack. but when looking at the PS4 and the games that are hyped for it, they are all shooters
its obvious, sony's biggest games are all shooters, their best developers are working on shooters. PS4 is the a ShooterBox, a ShooterStation 4. its the SS4
