Next week is going to be a big week for gaming, especially for the latest batch of consoles from Sony (NYSE:SNE), Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT), and Nintendo (NTDOY.PK). The biggest games of the month will be coming out — and one may even be the biggest game of the year so far.
1. Watch Dogs
May 27 (Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3, PC)
Watch Dogs isn’t just the biggest game of the week, but easily the biggest game of the month. Heck, it might even be one of the biggest games of the year. The action-stealth-hacking game was slated for much earlier, but Ubisoft wanted to make sure it worked out all the kinks and released the best version of the game it could. Coming out for all major platforms — except Nintendo’s — will ensure it has a massive distribution, not to mention that it already has over three-quarters of a million pre-orders in the U.S. alone, according to VGChartz. The game looks to play like a cross between Grand Theft Auto and Splinter Cell, with a touch of hacking added to the mix for all sorts of new gameplay, not to mention the special multiplayer modes.
