Forums - Gaming Discussion - PS5 and Xbox Series Launch Holiday line-ups

Decided to do some digging and see if I could come up with all of the launch window (Q4 2020) games for both PS5 and Xbox Series. Here is what I have found. Let me know if I am missing anything.

Worth noting that my list seems to be missing alot, at least for Xbox. Microsoft claims they'll have over 50 games available this year on Series X that are either new releases or graphical updates for older games, but I could only find 33 of those 50+ games so far.

In the Key, maybe FR for the free graphic update? There are 2 F's.



...to avoid getting banned for inactivity, I may have to resort to comments that are of a lower overall quality and or beneath my moral standards.

Demon's souls

was rated in Korea in august 13.

there is a real chance of being launch/ launch window

I don't think there is a release date yet for that one.

Changed Full Exclusive to FE on the key to prevent confusion.

Demon's Souls remake was announced without a date or window, Most likely a 2021 release, not launch window.

Edit: Hmmm, I see where the game just got rated in Korea, which has prompted speculation that it will be a launch window title. I will leave it off the list for now until we get an official announce from Sony.

rated august 13 in Korea



Demon's Souls has been rated in Korea and Japan, and based on the history of timings between ratings and launch, Demon's Souls could very well be a launch title. Or launch-window. I'm not saying "add that to the list" (which looks accurate to me), but I'm sure that will interest people who check out this thread.

Edit: Apparently I take too long to type since everyone has pointed this out already XD

Sony, if you're reading this, do something new with The Legend of Dragoon. You will make me a happy man. Thanks.
