There have also been new comparison charts created, as well as adding the PlayStation 4 version of Call of Duty: Ghosts and Battlefield 4 to the charts. The Xbox One version of those games will be added once Microsoft announced a release date.

Michael-5 (on 30 August 2013)

This is a bit sad, after Madden not only is the top 10 pretty much all shooters, it's mostly just different versions of the same 3 games. GTA, CoD, and Battlefield. Decembers list is going to be a whole lot different looking


xbox360 (on 29 August 2013)

Request Madden Nfl 25 and NBA 2k14 on Xone.


Comments below voting threshold
