The Drop – May 2015

May 8th, 2015 by

the drop logoAfter setting the bar high last month, it was always going to be hard for Microsoft to maintain the level of offerings with half the amount of titles.  The question on everyones lips however was whether they could now compete with Sony after making up some ground over the last couple of months or would the ability to offer one or two cross buy titles, once gain, prove too much.

Microsoft provide a solid month featuring a new game, an under rated  gem and a superb advertisement for a game incoming in the next few months.

Xbox One – Castlestorm

Xbox 360 – Mafia II and F1 2013

Sony combate the lineup with not just offering one or two cross buy titles like previous months, but literally filling plus with cross buy Arcade and Indie titles meaning that you get between 3-5 titles for any one console rather than just the standard two.

PlayStation 4 – Ether One, Guacamelee SCD Edition, Unfinished Swan, Race The Sun and Hohokum
PlayStation 3 – Unfinished Swan, Race The Sun and Hohokum
PlayStation Vita – Unfinished Swan, Race The Sun, Murasaki Baby and Hohokum

EA Access continue the random nature of The Vault by once again adding a sporting title to their list literally hours after this article went live last month in the form of NHL 15. Based on the EA Next Gen catalogue, a betting man would lay money down on Battlefield 4 and/or Fifa 15 making their Vault appearance over the next few months.
