One being out.
But really, Jade Empire 2 would be amazing, as well as any solid western RPG.
I'd buy whichever one Fallout 4 or the next Mass Effect title is announced for. Can't see myself buying one before then. Not with all these good games I still haven't bought for this generation yet. Maybe Destiny will make me fold, but I can't think of anything else that would.
Kingdom Hearts 3 and some old Gameboy color and GBA remakes would be the greatest things ever.
Persona 5, Kingdom Hearts 3, Final Fantasy Versus XIII, Banjo-Threeie, Zelda (along the lines of Majora's Mask), (Halo is the only reason I would get an XBOX if it required always online.. and I wouldn't play it often as I don't have internet!)
The Last Guardian would make me buy the new PS4. Assuming that is the plan now for the game. Final Fantasy XIII Versus might make me buy the console as well but it has been in development for sooo long I'll have to see something significant before I commit to this one. Kingdom Hearts 3 is an auto-buy. Final Fanasy XV....we'll see.
I find it interesting that Smash Bros is so highlighted when the true killer app and sales champion for Nintendo, and especially the Wii U, has been Mario Kart.
No doubt, the Wii U installment will be a system seller.
A game like KH3 shouldn't be a exclusive but available for nearly all platforms.
Even though I've pretty much already decided Im gonna get a Ps4 for my next gen console, if Microsoft made Alan Wake 2, I would totally buy that new Xbox
There are so many games that I have been wanting forever and that I would buy a system for. Eternal Darkness 2, Beyond Good and Evil 2, Dark Cloud 3, a new Rouge Squadron, Bully 2, Enslaved 2, on and on. I do have to agree with the majority though, Kingdom Hearts 3 is in my #1 spot.
Halo 5 without a doubt. I've commented previously on GIO about the new Xbox rumors and if they're true I might switch to PS4 (although I'm holding my judgment until the 720 is announced) but either way I'd end up owning a 720 once Halo 5 comes out
Kingdom Hearts 3 for sure. Hoping it will be released on PS3 only, or both PS3 and PS4, but if only PS4, I will be getting a PS4.
Also, the new Super Smash Bros. and Mario platformer would entice me to consider a Wii U.
Last guardian would get me to buy ps4 day one.
KotOR 3. I'd spend any amount of money for a true KotOR 3.
