Playstation 4 and Xbox One Launch Exclusives compared (Gamescom edition)

Both Microsoft and Sony had their conferences at the on going Gamescom conference in Germany where both parties announced new games. Some of them were full retail titles while others were digital only. Indies dominated the show but fans of AA and AAA titles need not worry as they’ll get their due attention in time. JRPGs were also absent but that was to be expected, expect more of them at September’s Tokyo Game Show.
