Forums - Sony Discussion - PS4’s 2018 exclusive games: One of the best years for a console in gaming history?

I feel like we get this discussion almost every year. What I will say though, is that other than all of the DLC/microtransactions/constant patches and updates these past few years have been great for gaming.

Yeah personally looks pretty terrible exclusive wise. 2017 had Persona 5, Nioh, Yakuza which these 3 alone > everything 2018. And thats without mentioning top games like Uncharted, GT Sport and the glorious most valorous Knack 2.

To be fair the games in 2018 have to actually release before I can judge them, but just going off my personal expectations it doesn't look too good.

Well I’m not saying this as much in terms of my personal taste; rather, more from an objective perspective—like what will the average person and Game news website say at the end of 2018. I have no interest in Ni No Kuni 2, Dissidia FF, Yakuza, and maybe even others on that list. They’re on the list bc they’re quality exclusives, in spite of how I personally feel about them. 

Well before 2017 happened and comparing 2017 and 2018 the supposed biggest system seller would be GT Sport. Of course we know about the issues with that game now. God of War is looking to be a big seller like it usually is, but it is still a wait and see game. Yakuza=Yakuza and Nioh, Nier, Persona 5 > the other japanese games objectively.

Detroit, Days Gone and Spiderman are wildcards. I admit to being pessimistic about 2018 and I appreciate your optimism as I was very optimistic about 2017 and it worked out great.

He is right. There is nothing more to say really because your statement could just as well be a joke or a sarcastic thread.

What’s the point of commenting if you’re going to contribute nothing? Please go elsewhere if you just want to make arrogant statements with nothing behind them. If you want to give your opinion, and state why, that’s absolutely welcome.

Nice, Final Fantasy X is on the list.



Anyway,

Looking forward to Ace Combat 7, Spider-Man and Dragon Quest XI. And the Secret of Mana remake.

Isn't Ni No Kuni 2 also coming to PC ?



To some it might, to others it won't. That's why these kinds of pronouncements are never a good idea.

Now this thread is going to be filled with people saying, "IN MY DAY BLAH BLAH BLAH."



I'm not a PS owner, but according to overall community reaction, it'll be very hard to beat out even PS' own 2017. From what I've seen/read Horizon seems better than any of those listed. GOW and Superman might turn out great, but this is yet to be seen, and the David Cage one is gonna be another movie.

My girlfriend is getting all excited about Bloodborne 2, though. Dunno what that's about.

History? Lol absolutely not! This gen? Not erven that. Looks alright but far from best. Every year in the 4th/5th gen has every year in this gen beat by a country mile.

......wow.

Well. Subjectivity I guess.

To OP, I am inclined to agree with you. Of the games you mentioned there are 7 new IPs there (yes, incuding GOW which is a reboot and nothing like the games before it). That alone makes it btter for me than most years as I follow playstation because of the amount of new IPs they cough out. Then the games that aren't new IPs are equally just as good.

I can't relate how or why some seem so atagonistic over the lineup, but no one else  can boast having AAA exclusive games that all stand a good chance to score 80+ coming out back to back  fro almost every month all year round.

NI NO KUNI:  1/2018

- Yay


SHADOW OF THE COLOSSUS REMAKE:  2/6/18

- YAY


YAKUZA 6: 3/2018

- Eh


GOD OF WAR:  “early 2018”. Though GoW games have always released in March. Oh, and the Game length is checking out at 25-35 hours.

- Eh


DETROIT:  Spring 2018, so approximately April-June.

 - Ugh


SPIDER-MAN:  First half of 2018. I think Sony would want to release this while there was still a lot of hype over Avengers: Infinity War, which releases 5/4/18. So i would suspect either May or June (nless it gets delayed). 

 - Whoo!


DAYS GONE:  Only window given was 2018, to my knowledge. Shu said the game is playable from beginning to end, and that Bend is now only working on polishing the game.

 - Yay


DREAMS:  Only window given was 2018. It will also have a beta. 

 - I don't even


CONCRETE GENIE:  2018

 - What?


DISSIDIA FF:  2018

 - Eh
