Nope. That would have been The Last Of Us Part II, regardless of Anthem. :P

And acting like PlayStation fans are the only ones who seriously hype exclusive games is quite disingenuous. Furthermore, who cares if some people hype exclusives more? I don't see why either of you should generalize a fanbase over it.

Yeah, not really talking about fanbases... just making an observation about the forum.  Exclusives rule all here.  It really isn’t a good representation of the majority of people at all.   I merely used the ps4 as the example because days gone is a ps4 exclusive.  

Well, like I said to Azzanation, I don't see anything wrong with being more excited for an exclusive. Plus, that's really a stretch, as plenty of folks here have high praise for multiplatform games (and many would even put them over some of the exclusives the consoles have to offer). Perhaps Anthem just doesn't appeal to a lot of those people yet.

Yeah, sure, nothing wrong with it, but outside of Internet forums it is also not the way most people think.  It is just an interesting observation.  If you think this is a good representation of how the two games will perform, then let’s look back at this when the games come out see which one was more successful then.

To me, it doesn't matter which one ends up the bigger success and I won't proclaim to know which will (nor will I claim to know what most people think outside of the Internet). I'm just saying that there isn't anything wrong with being less excited for Anthem.

Also, this forum is so weird. Anthem looks freaking incredible and obviously will be a much bigger hit than days gone, but yet you all are picking it over Anthem? What if Anthem was a ps4 exclusive? Would that change things?

Anthem's looking unbelievably good to me, but I think this situation in particular is an issue of trust. EA promise big and rarely deliver, often finding ways to compromise and ruin what could have been an excellent game. And people are getting sick of that.



No matter. I'm not that excited for either one.

Anthem on my PC and Days Gone on my PS4(lol...doesn't need that emphasis though for an exclusive).



I don't think Microsoft had anything to do with the release date. Would be stupid for both game to release on the same date. If Anthem doesn't get delay Sony should move Days gone, the Feb 22nd would of been a great slot for Sony.

They can't exactly rush Days Gone and release it earlier though, so I believe moving it is not a smart idea. If you release it earlier it might have some jaggies you couldn't fix in time, plus Kingdom Hearts 3 releases January 29th as announced earlier today. If you move it to March you might end up moving it against the new Assassins Creed if the leaks end up coming true and maybe even Metro Exodus.



Sony moved God of War from March to April because of Far Cry 5. Maybe this time will be same.



I thought they released Destiny already? Anyway, what they had to show at the conference makes me doubt they will be anywhere close to putting out a full polished game by the beginning of 2019



“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”
