A look ahead: PS4 and Xbox One in 2016

It could very well be that 2016 will be one of the biggest years for console exclusive games yet, with Sony having spent most of the year telling us what we'll have to look forward too and Microsoft also having revealed a lot of its big titles for next year.

We are guessing that both still have a few surprises in store for 2016, but just looking at what we do know about is getting us excited for the year to come.

Obviously the games listed below are a mixture of those we definitely know will release in 2016 and those we suspect will arrive within the same year. This is subject to change as you know, as maybe games will need more development time or maybe Sony or Microsoft which change them out for something as yet unannounced, but we're sure you will agree that the titles listed below offer plenty for everyone.

 Possible PlayStation Line Up for 2016

- Uncharted 4
- Horizon
- The Last Guardian
- Ratchet & Clank
- Gran Turismo Sport (Beta confirmed 2016)
- Street Fighter V
- Star Ocean 5
- Hellblade
- World of Final Fantasy
- Nier 2
- Gravity Rush 
- Gravity Rush 2
- No Man's Sky
- Deep Down 
- Detroit: Become Human
- Drawn to Death
- Persona 5
- Yakuza Zero

- PlayStation VR
- Numerous titles for PlayStation VR

While some of the titles above likely won't make 2016, we also expect Sony to announce a few other titles, especially in the Virtual Reality space. Then there's the question about what some of its other studios are up to, such as Santa Monica and Sony Bend. So we expect 2016 will be a big year for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR.

Possible Xbox One Line Up for 2016 

- Gears of War 4
- Crackdown 3
- Quantum Break
- Scalebound
- Halo Wars 2
- Recore
- Sea of Thieves
- Killer Instinct: Season 3
- Fable Legends

Microsoft no doubt has more exclusives than shown above, but even still, those are some pretty impressive games even if it's left at that. While Sony tends to spread its releases throughout the year, Microsoft generally sticks to the second half, so expect titles such as the new Gears, Crackdown and Halo Wars to release in Q3/Q4 of 2016, along with perhaps some other new titles which we don't yet know about.

It's possible that we have missed plenty off our list too. We've not added exclusive titles from smaller, indie developers, instead focusing on the bigger titles which we are sure to sell on the store. But it's worth mentioning that there are also some great titles which won't come to retail on the way in 2016 too.

So what do you think of the list above? Is there anything we've missed or that you don't think will make it out in 2016?

We'll update the list if anything glaring is missing. In the meantime, discuss below.

Plenty of games coming, far too many to afford them all and not enough time to play them anyway so the amount of choice with games isn't a problem. I'm still waiting for news on a PS4 Blu-ray remote, it's ridiculous that one hasn't been made yet. I'd also like to see a new PS4 with at least 2TB storage, or ideally with an even bigger capacity SSD hard drive.

A 2TB SSD cost about £400+, Unless you wanna pay £700+ for a PS4 with a 2TB SSD it isn't going to happen.

same - my 2tb external drive cost about 50 quid - took the drive out of the casing - put it in the PS4 and put the PS4's drive in the casing to use on my PC. Only problem is re-installing as backing up everything didn't work for me so I was only able to backup the settings and images. - 2tb still not enough if you have a lot of games though - i'm on over 100 I think now so constantly deleting to make room
