you are only looking at the 9 'exclusives' aren't you? i can't really see what you mean by more fun.
i mean, forza horizon looks good and one i'll get but that's no different to driveclub.
sunset overdrive was looking pretty good fun but something about it's E3 showing has cooled it for me and will have to wait and see on that one.
project spark is a soul-less little big planet clone with zero charm and after playing around with the beta it certainly isn't as fun as little big planet.
fantasia and dance central probably will be fun, if the kinect decides it's going to work for a change but i'd rather be sat down, getting drunk and playing singstar which is due out this year too.
fable legends is only a beta and fun or not, i don't see how it can even be in this list.
killer instinct is surely dlc for the already available main game and again i can't see how it can be in this list.
which, other than the indie game which'll probably have some kind of equivalent on ps4, only leaves halo HD and whether that's fun or not will be personal preference but just going from a purely 'the genre has moved forward' point of view i reckon there'll be plenty of other fps' that end up being a lot more fun.

it's not a personal attack so please don't take it that way it's just both machines seem to be offering pretty much the same thing so i can't really see how one can be more fun than the other

The titles on that list look much more fun than Sony's, in my opinion. But still... not convinced by either company yet that theirs is the *one* for me to pick up,

I was interested in Sunset Overdrive until I saw Splatoon for Wii U.

Killer Instinct Season 2? Isn't that just DLC or are they releasing a new KI already?

I'm confused.

Agreed! I don't know what it is about MS, but they could make anything sound boring. Just finished watching the E3 show, and it's just suits and people pretending not to be suits.

And does Phil Spencer have any vertebrates in his neck? I wish he'd use them. He turns his entire body to look elsewhere.

I do hope they treat their self publishers well from now on. By the way they've promoted Super Time Force, I'm guessing they won't. There where a few games in the ID@ collection I'm a bit envious of, But there's still loads of goodies coming to the Vita and PS4!

That's a pretty ugly bunch. Forza Horizon 2 easily the pick of those nine, couldn't care less about the rest. Not feeling what I've seen from Sunset Overdrive at all so far.
