Our TakeEveryone who has touched Titanfall seems to walk away with a new outlook on life, or at least video games. Destiny seems to offer a similar revelation. Mario Kart 8 also seems to be turning some heads. Maybe that will be the game that turns everything around for the Wii U.

I keep telling myself I don't NEED a next-gen console but its moments like hearing the Gamescon news coverage that make faking the funk dang near impossible!

Sony showed non indie games? Where? :P Sorry, but sonys conference was a total snooze fest. As for Destiny, I love Bungie but I still need to see more of that game before I decide.
Hell, the two game plays of Titanfall has me sold, the Destiny game plays to date? Not so much. I'm sure it will be a fun game but I want to see more, which I'm sure will happen before the game comes out.
Nobody "Won". Titanfall is an online shooter. Nothing original or innovative
I didn't see anything at this show that was very exciting from either sony or microsoft...it was pretty meh all around
I found nothing exciting at Gamescon. Sorry.
So, Sony's best game isn't a console exclusive...how is that winning?
Just give me Titanfall and Destiny.....
so much news on titanfall....and all i want to do is play it now
Well done Sony as the PS4 is the better hardware in more ways than one. Better memory/bandwidth, better shaders and more tflops. It only makes sense that the PS4 would win best hardware. Microsoft's ESRam has caused over heating issues so Microsoft has had to under clock their CPU.
Sony will get the exclusive train going soon enough. Everyone has to remember that Sony is still supporting the PS3 with major AAA exclusives. Microsoft let the X360 die along time ago. If both console makers would have let their last gen consoles die at the same time GT6, Beyond Two Souls, Puppeteer, Rain and Ratchet and Clank Into the Nexus would all be PS4 exclusives. Don't put to much into Microsoft's launch line up when they haven't done anything for the X360. If at all, I would be disappointed there isn't more exclusives.
