While Microsoft does have games like CrossfireX, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2, Avowed, Everwild, Forza Motorsport, State of Decay 3, and Fable on the horizon, there are no confirmed release dates as of yet, leaving the Xbox Series X launch list pretty sparse.

Originally, Xbox fans had Halo: Infinite to look forward to as a cross-gen launch title, but after the gameplay reveal backlash, the developers decided to delay the game till next year.

Sony on the other hand has at least eight launch titles lined up for the PS5, with games like Demon’s Souls and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales looking to make a big splash.

Further down the line, PlayStation fans can look forward to games like the newly-announced Final Fantasy XVI from Square Enix, plus God of War: Ragnarok, Gran Turismo 7, Horizon Forbidden West, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, and more.

Outside of exclusives, both consoles will spotlight the ability to play older generation titles in enhanced modes. Microsoft is offering games through Xbox Game Pass (some enhancements limited on Xbox Series S), while Sony will offer specific titles through their newly-revealed PlayStation Plus Collection.

The Xbox Series X/S is scheduled to release November 10 for $499 & $299, respectively. Meanwhile, PS5 ($499) & Digital Edition ($399) will be releasing November 12 in the US & Japan and November 19 in Europe.
