There has been word of 15 launch titles for the PlayStation 4. We are currently unaware of any DLC that will go along with these titles, but this is a little unimpressive compared to the 23 that are being released on the XBOX One. These titles as you can see are mostly tied to sports such as the madden series and the Fifa series which are published by EA. We can see little “action games” however the long awaited Watch Dogs is going to be released as well as the critically acclaimed Call Of Duty Ghosts.

Why Are There Less Titles Than The Xbox One?
This question is quite difficult to answer but to do so we have to look at it from the view of a developer. Which platform are people most likely going to move to, and do we have the resources to do both. Most game developers worked on the Xbox 360 before the PS4, and that is how the industry was setup the Xbox community was larger and therefore developers targeted if for more sales. Now if the tables are flipped these publishers will have to higher more developers to make their games available on the other console as well as the other. So the main reason that the Xbox One has more games is because of the Xbox 360.
F & Q
Are They Going To Be More Expensive Then The Xbox One Games?
No they should be the same price as the Xbox One game prices if they want to stand a chance in this market.
What are the items in parenthesis?
These show the developer, then the publisher for each of the games.
Which Console Should I Buy?
It is not my place to judge, but the software capabilities of the Xbox One entice me more than the PlayStation 4. Not only that but the Xbox One is more secure then Sony which seems to be hacked quite commonly.
Which Console Has Better Graphics?
The graphics should be very similar so that should not be a deciding factor for your choice of game or console.
