This week on Generation Next, Tamoor, Jordan, and Lucy create their dream launch lineups for Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, selecting console exclusives, indie gems to watch out for, and throwing in wildcard picks.
Generation Next is GameSpot’s dedicated show all about the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. Each week we’ll be digging deeper into the biggest news stories, as well as talking to the developers charting the future of gaming. It’s hosted by Lucy James, Xbox Xpert Jordan Ramée, and PlayStation Pro Tamoor Hussain.
The next generation of consoles creeps ever closer and soon we’ll have the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X under our TVs and in our hands. Which makes it all the more confusing when you consider that, as it stands, we’re not sure how much we’ll be paying for them or, perhaps more importantly, what we’ll be playing on them.
The launch lineup for both the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X remain unclear in large part. Sure, we know that there will be Spider-Man: Miles Morales for PS5. And yes, Microsoft has a bunch of titles that are coming to Game Pass. Plus, third-party developers and publishers are also gesturing vaguely towards launch window releases for their games, but we’re still a bit in the fog on what will be there for us to spend our hard-earned cash on come launch day.
With that in mind, we decided to indulge our fantasies and put together our own dream launch lineups for both Sony and Microsoft’s consoles. After a quick chat about the recent delay to Arkane Studios’ Deathloop, we put our heads down and make dream picks for launch day releases in multiple categories. These include platform exclusive, system seller, indie darling, and games as a service. To spice things up, we’ve also thrown in a wildcard category–and it definitely gets spicy.
Join us as we create the ultimate PS5 and Xbox Series X launch lineups. Sure, they probably won’t happen, but we can dream, right?
