Seven months have passed since the new generation of consoles was released, Xbox Series X/S y PS5, and we are experiencing an atypical situation in the history of videogames, since it is still very difficult to get hold of one of them, with reservations that fly in a few minutes as very few units arrive at the stores, due to the semiconductor crisis. If we add to this the effects that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on video game development, we find that very few developers are betting on launching exclusive titles on console for PS5 and Xbox Series X / S, that is, we can’t play on PS4 and Xbox One.
On the one hand we have Xbox, which promised not to abandon Xbox One users for at least the first year or a year and a half of the new generation, and it is something that we are going to see this Christmas with the launch of titles like Halo Infinite O Forza Horizon 5 in both generations, although at this E3 they have announced some exclusive Xbox Series X / S titles for 2022.
On the other hand we have PlayStation, who at first said that he believes in the generations, as he had already shown with his previous PlayStation consoles by releasing exclusive titles for them from the first months, but that seems to have changed his mind and titles from 2022 as God of War: Ragnarok O Gran Turismo 7 will also be released on PS4.
This way, if you are a Xbox One or PS4 user who has not yet been able to make the leap to the new generation, what are you missing? Obviously we know that the new consoles offer better graphics, shorter loading times and other types of advantages, but we are going to review what exclusive games they have and will have in the coming months and that you will not be able to play on the “old” generation of consoles, now that E3 2021 has ended and we have a little clearer the future of both consoles.
PS5 hit stores with a three of exclusive titles like the acclaimed Demon’s Souls Remake, the surprising Astro’s Playroom, which was installed in each console, and the forgettable Godfall, which will also cease to be exclusive this August with its arrival on PS4. Last February came Destruction AllStars, in April I received the shooter Returnal and just went on sale a few days ago the great Ratchet & Clank: Una Dimensin Aparte Y Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade, the latter an exclusive by the hair, or rather it could be said that it has an exclusive DLC. But after this release and for the remainder of the year, the only dated exclusive is Deathloop September 14, the new from Arkane, and you have to look at 2022 to find most exclusive new generation, where the thing seems that it is beginning to animate, although not on the part of the PlayStation itself and the third-parties.
Below we detail all the exclusives what has and will have PS5 in the next few months and that you can’t play on PS4:
Xbox Series X/S
Xbox Series X / S is on its way to becoming in his first year on one of the consoles in history with the fewest exclusive titles, something that should not catch us by surprise since it was a declaration of intent from Microsoft when it announced it, that it will not leave Xbox One users stranded at least for the first few months. At the moment we have The Medium, a horror adventure that was released last January and is not available on Xbox One, and in a few weeks it will arrive Microsoft Flight Simulator, a console version that for now is going to be exclusive to Xbox Series X / S. In December comes the snowboard game Shredders, and maybe between now and the end of the year there will be some other exclusive, Scorn O Warhammer 40,000: Darktide. If we throw a look at 2022 and later things are obviously going to change quite a bit, but it is interesting to know that Microsoft wants to use its service Cloud play to bring exclusive Xbox Series X / S games to Xbox One, so at least in this way we can continue playing some of the exclusives of 2022 on the already veteran console, such as Starfield, Redfall Y STALKER 2.
