Generally, exclusive game releases are something we all look forward to and highly anticipate. They’re incredibly important to both Sony and Microsoft because they are one of the deciding factors for gamers trying to choose between consoles. So when exclusives are a letdown, they are a big letdown. There’s nothing more frustrating than realizing you purchased an Xbox One or a PlayStation 4 to get exclusive games which totally missed the mark.
Here are the 6 worst letdowns so far!
6. DriveClub: PS4
This was a game that PlayStation players really looked forward to. The graphics were beautiful, and the developers talked about all kinds of features that should have been nothing short of fantastic. We were going to get a huge open world to explore and awesome multiplayer interaction. A ton of gamers went out and bought the PS4 just to experience DriveClub when it released.
And then it did release, and what an embarrassment. The developers even called it one. Gameplay was really basic and didn’t provide much in the way of customization features. Multiplayer existed, but it didn’t work very well, probably because the developers just skipped the beta phase outright. So what we ended up with was a buggy release and a sub-par game—definitely not a game to compete with Forza. So yeah … PS4 exclusive fail.
