Launch games hitting the market with the first appearance of Microsoft’s Xbox One have just been released in a single-form confirmation from the company itself, they suggesting that it wont just be the 50 by the time the device appears this Fall. With the 50 games listed by Microsoft today, the company has suggested that a whopping 38% of them (that’s 19 titles, if you’re counting) will be exclusive to the console. Have a peek and see if these names are worth the purchase in and of themselves.
The 19 titles you’re seeing in the first set below are all called “Xbox platform exclusives OR exclusively first on Xbox”. In other words, at least SOME of them will be exclusive to the platform, while some may be coming to other systems after their initial Xbox One launch. Can you guess which is which?
