    Curious about some rather obvious multi platform games missing from the list. Where's Battlefield 4, Rayman Legends, Lego Marvel etc? They made the PS4 list. Even Assassins Creed 4, seems the XO list has the freedom cry DLC and not the actual game? Seems a bit pointless compiling these lists if it misses half the AAA titles..

    So XBOX One sucks? I look at PS4 list, and it's almost all green. XBOX One's is half yellow?
