This thread has evolved from first party studio thread to exclusives for each system (or games that are not on the other console). Can a mod change the thread title to Xbox One VS PS4 exclusives.

List is incomplete. Still need to do Xbox One digital games as well as finish off PS4 digital games.

I thought I'd update this thread, with many people making their decision this holiday on which console to buy. Maybe this would be helpful. Note that I haven't added PSN/XBLA games to the list which I will do later.

Sony will always have the upperhand compared to MS when it comes to first party studios

Sony.

But it could be close early on if MS lives up to it's "15 first party exclusives in first year" comment.

Edit: well actually they said "Microsoft Game Studios" will be delivering these 15 exclusives, does this mean Microsoft Game Studios could just be buying/paying for 3rd party exclusives instead of all being 1st party?

Sony has had strong diverse 1st party support for generations now. MS's best bet is to buy timed or completely exclusive 3rd party games because without that depending on their 1st party alone would be dangerous.

The main reason I stay with Sony platforms is the wide variety of what their first party studios produce. Plus I don't think I could live without Naughty Dog or Sucker Punch.

I think Microsoft has the better shooters with Halo and Gears

But other than that, Sony - to say it with Microsoft's own words - kills MS when it comes to first party

Isn't Insomniac still making a Playstation exclusive game? I thought Fude was being done by their second studio. I'm guessing they will make a Ratchet game for the movie on PS3/4.

hehe, just took out the obvious references to Microsoft's first party not being up the snuff, smooth

Yes I learn my lessons, I added Microsoft Victoria and the Microsoft Japan studios in the list, as well as adding the Kinect studios in the second list.

Yay let's put many unknown fresh opened studios against well know established ones and people will decide "who win".

SMH
Its nobody's fault but Microsoft that they didn't establish more studios this gen. They're the two first party studios that will be competing all gen, its perfectly fair to want to compare which company makes more intriguing first party games.

I don't know why people keep posting my original thread, isn't it obvious why I made this thread, the other thread got closed by a mod quite early on.

This is a boring comparison. Better one is all first party(MS+Nintendo+Sony) vs all third party!

which teams did I miss on MGS, feel free to point out corrections so I can edit the list. I only listed studios that are confirmed to have multiple teams of course.

Create thread about 1st party comparisons.

Mod locks thread.

Create thread about 1st party comparisons.

Profit?

Yes because the title of that thread was trollish, and I created it after MS conference, now I have made the thread properly. I don't get it what is the problem?

I like this thread because it's a good summary of what we know about all of MS and Sony's first party studios.

I've always preferred Sony's first party output and I don't see that changing anytime soon.

This generation, Sony dominated by a landslide. We'll see how it pans out next gen. I personally expect more of the same disparity for PS4 over the Xbone.

343i is a 340 employee studio, so it's certainly a two teams studio, at least.

Oups, my bad, you already accounted for it.
