Microsoft has more games that are truly exclusive, but Sony has many more "console exclusives," which mainly overlap with concurrent Vita and PC versions.

More than half of the launch library for each system overlaps with the other system.

Most of the PS4's advantage in total games and console exclusives comes from a bevy of independent titles they've been promoting quite heavily, largely from existing PC titles.

Neither system seems set to have an RPG or platform game at launch.

Generic shooters and/or action games of various stripes make up roughly half of each system's announced games.

And 80% of those indies were 'console exclusive debuts', meaning they will be out on PC at same or before, and out on other consoles later, timed.

PS4 has Knack, it's an old school platform/action game. And how many consoles have a good RPG at launch anyway, I wouldn't be expecting an RPG worth playing at launch.

Whether they do or not, it's not a good idea to play up. 2 weeks after MS hits the switch and every Xbone is a DK there'll be more indie "apps" on XBL.
