微软（Microsoft）的Xbox One和索尼（Sony ）PS4在视觉精细度和性能上可以说是针尖对麦芒，因而针对各自设备设计的独家游戏对于两家公司来说都将十分重要。但是整个行业仍然要在全球范围内支持8000万台PS3和8000万台Xbox 360的需求。各大游戏发行商仍将在各大主流平台上为当前一代和下一代游戏机的用户发布更多的游戏（不过任天堂的Wii U并不在很多发行商的计划内）。以下十款游戏就是各大发行商2014年最受期待的大作。
With the holidays offering plenty of free time for gamers to catch up on the first crop of next-generation titles, that extra Christmas money is already being spent on pre-orders for the big games of 2014. According to research firm Newzoo, the video game industry is expected to grow 7% from the $70.4 billion it's expected to generate this year, riding the wave of next-generation and lower-priced, current-generation hardware.
"With two new consoles fresh on the market, it will be another very interesting year for the games industry," said Peter Warman, CEO of Newzoo. "Traditionally, current-gen console use outnumbers gamers on next-gen consoles for a number of years. To a large degree, games launched for the new devices will help determine the successful growth of next-gen consoles."
With Xbox One and PS4 being neck-and-neck with visual fidelity and performance at this early juncture, exclusive games will be a key driver for Sony (SNE) and Microsoft(MSFT, Fortune 500). But the industry, as a whole, will continue to support the 80 million PS3s and 80 million Xbox 360s in homes around the world. Publishers will release many games across the key platforms (you'll notice, however, that Wii U isn't included in many publishers' plans) to deliver both a next-gen experience for early adopters as well as a current-gen game for the masses. The following list of 10 games focuses on some of the most anticipated officially announced cross-platform games from third-party publishers coming in 2014.
