Look forward to the next generation of gaming with these upcoming games you can buy on launch day.
Throughout gaming history, only a few blockbuster titles come with the latest consoles on launch day. Games need time to maximize the cutting-edge tech. So, very few games can carry console sales at launch. However, this year’s next-gen launch could be different. For the first time, you can play nearly your entire library on next-gen consoles.
The Verge says you are free to choose where to play your favorite games. If you don’t want to upgrade, you can play next-gen games on your current consoles. This way, you can still play with your friends even if you have different machines.
