  • Got Knack all pre-ordered and set. I can’t wait!

  • KingGunblader

    Watch Dogs is coming to PS3, and Transistor – as awesome as it looks – isn’t worth $400 to me. Looks like I’m waiting for a while.

    • Transistor kind of looks like a PS2 game. Not sure why I’d need a new platform for it.

  • Sakurairo

    As much as I want a PS4, I’m glad I decided to cancel my preorder after all the initial hype. Knack is the only exclusive that seems interesting for this time frame. I’ll just wait for some of the bigger titles to come before buying.

    • Marcelo Henrique Chaves

      Me too i got all excited about the next gen, but both consoles launch line up are kinda meh.
      IF they waited till next year and released it with a new Uncharted, LBP, God of War, etc. I believe it would be better.
      So i’m gonna buy a PC this year instead and play some FFXIV, or Destiny, or Elder. Even though i’m leaning towards FF just because it’s P2P.
      And sicne MMO are know for ruining lifes, i wont get tempted for the next 2 years. =P

      • アティ

        True it’s kind of pointless to buy right away when there’s not much games to play with, pretty much would collect dust in a closet until they announce a new game…

  • NintendoPSX

    What about Outlast and The Order? :c

    • XYZ_JolteonZ980

      The Order was always a 2014 game

      • NintendoPSX

        GameStop was being duplicitous! It was all a ruse!

        • Testsubject909

          It’s gamestop.

  • XYZ_JolteonZ980

    NFS Rivals for me. May get watch_dogs too…

  • Brii-Nanas

    Ehh, not really tickling my fancy, personally. Sports and shooters aren’t my thing. I think I’ll stick to my mantra and wait until the amount of games I MUST HAVE outprice the cost of the console.
    For all those who are excited, enjoy! Won’t be long.

  • ndjn3979

    Waiting for Tekken

  • As good as this launch line-up is, I find it disappointing that most of these are also going to be available on the PS3/360. It’s like what’s the point in buying a new console? Obviously they’re going to be better versions, but how much better can they really be? I don’t find it very encouraging, especially considering that these new consoles are supposed to be more advanced than what we already have.

    • Suicunesol

      It’s going to take time for developers to feel comfortable enough to develop PS4 games that go far beyond the PS3’s power level. Games are only going to get more expensive from here out, so they still need the PS3 versions to make up for the losses on the PS4 versions. The best PS4 versions should offer at the moment are advanced models, lighting, and textures, but nothing that can’t be scaled down for the PS3.

  • Carlos Daniel Flores Loreto

    I’ll wait for Japanese games.

  • Letiumtide

    Well, I’m still getting my PS4, but thank god it’s going to be a strong showing of Nintendo games over the next few months. A great way to spend some time with my Wii U while the PS4 warms up a bit, though I’m likely getting ACIV and Lego (even though I don’t really care for Marvel, I’m just fully in love with Lego games now.)

  • Onizuka Gio Hikari

    Looks good. Seems a little underwhelming for launch titles but I don’t mind since I will just wait till January for my birthday~

    • Testsubject909

      Oh hey, someone else born in January.

  • Herok♞

    I love both Sony and Nintendo, so I will be getting a PS4 after a few more things come out, like Infamous:SS I know I will definitely have one by KH III or FF XV whichever comes first. until then the Wiiu, Vita, PS3 and 3DS will keep me company.

    • AnimusVox

      I’m with you. I do like Nintendo but I don’t have a WiiU at the moment, I plan on getting it once Bayonetta 2 comes out. I’m also keeping my fingers crossed for a new Metroid game.

      • Herok♞

        you aren’t missing much at the moment but soon the flood gates of releases are opening.

        • AnimusVox

          Yeah, I’m also very interested in that next game the ‘Xenoblade’ team are working on.

          • It wasn’t even announced last year, lol. The last update was its second trailer at E3.

          • AnimusVox

            I don’t even remember seeing the E3 trailer, didnt know it existed till now to be honest.

          • JakatoX

            I’m really hyped for Monolith Soft’s X, I mean you get to fight Dragon like monsters on Foot or in Giant Robots! What’s not to like!? lol

    • Lucky Dan

      I’m getting both systems but waiting on newer and more stable Technology. One thing I hate about both systems that both are using AMD Tablet Chipset and AMD Radeon Graphics which is the cheapest around and they are gonna make a ton of money at launch. The asking price is way overpriced when recent phones, laptops, tablets and PCs are more powerful than the Consoles today.

      I wait till they both drop to half the price of the PS4 and then purchase it then.

  • zferolie

    Wasn’t Destiny supposed to be a launch title? WHat happened to it?

    • subsamuel01

      Destiny was never a launch title, its coming out next year.

  • Yan Zhao

    These launch titles are kinda meh. Definitely no console seller. Its the same for even PS3 and 360, and hell, Wii U. Got to give it more time for more games from developers that match my personal game preference to release major titles.


    Watch_Dogs is the only game I want out of that list, and I’m already planning on getting the Wii U version. I know the PS4 will be an awesome system to have, but I’ll wait the system out a bit before I get it.

  • Guest

    PS4 is releasing on my birthday!

    Still I can wait for a PS4 until Kingdom Hearts 3 launches :P

    • Sardorim

      You should get KH2.5 if you can as I’m betting they’ll let you use the second analog for camera control for Birth By Sleep: Final Mix HD! That alone will make an already great game even better!

  • Vash bane

    welp time to lurk again (and play the waiting game)

  • AnimusVox

    Infamous: Second Son would be an amazing launch title, though Killzone 4 is a good one in my books too. Wish they’d launch more first party titles. But not a terrible launch.

  • Guest

    Warner Bros lol wow

  • Longsun_Zhao

    I guess Watch Dogs it is.

  • Domii

    Shadow Fall!!!

  • Sardorim

    PS4 is my goal! Til than my 3DS will keep my satisfied!

    Still need to Limit Breaker cap my DLC characters in Fire Emblem, get the remaining Fiends in SMT IV, kill the secret boss with Sora and Riku in Kingdom Heats: Dream Drop Distance, and the such. I also need to rush clear Resident Evil: Revelations and than there’s Pokemon Y that I’m getting…

    Hmm.. I’m sure busy as is! But still… PS4! I will make you mine!

  • Neppygear

    Yawnifications. I wasn’t going to get a PS4 on launch, anyway, but this extra cinches it.

    • FetusZero

      Nepgear <3

      Really, I reply just for this, but for the sake of not making a useless comment, might as well say I'm in the same 'dimension'. I wasn't going to get it on launch since all that interests me in this list is Killzone. The good side is that Killzone will be $20-$30 when I actually do buy one.

  • monkey king

    This is a pretty awful launch list.

  • Strid

    That’s not an inspiring list in the slightest.

  • Demeanor

    Pretty underwhelming conference in my book… although I guess that A) we DID get some concrete and relevant new information about the ps4 and Vita, and B) I really shouldn’t have expected new J titles announcements at Gamescom! So it’s a 6.5-7/10 for me. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for the TGS.
    Btw is it just me or does the launch lineup look really “western” for a Japanese console? Will they have different launch titles? I’m still waiting for a definite system seller (for me) before getting the new hw. Like a jrpg.

  • Haku_Luvs_You

    Well I guess Battlefield 4. Maybe some NBA.

  • Istillduno

    “I’ll pick it up when it has games” seems like it’s been the rule of thumb for just about everything announced since the Vita/3DS, what happened to good launch lineups?

    Guess the wallet is breathing a bit easier this way and faulty first run consoles are avoided but still…

  • Göran Isacson

    Knack, Watch Dogs and possibly LEGO Marvel are the only titles I feel like I really wanna play… which may not be much, but is at least a better launch list than Wii U. Not good enough for me to actually wanna buy it day one, mind. Me thinks waiting until they have fixed whatever inevitable launch bugs will be on it and it has gotten a few more really big titles is the wisest choice.

  • Brion Valkerion

    Yeah cancelling my preorder. Great games, but not for me. Need for Speed and Lego Marvel is the only thing interesting on that list for me, so I will hold off a bit.

    But if I get it as a gift, F yeah!

    • ninjabart122

      Japan Studio games have always been pretty interesting to me. Most notably though, the Patapon series. Liked what they did with the third one, but felt kinda limited and considerably different from prior titles.

  • leingod

    That’s… pretty weak. There’s nothing that justifies a buy, at least for me.

  • Judgephoenix

    I plan to get both of systems at some point. Wish people expectations for AAA titles was not so high for 1st release titles. It will get better over time for both of them. Rome was not built in a day people lol.

  • JakatoX

    I’m still kinda debating on getting this now because it comes out right before my birthday and I wouldn’t have to pay for majority of the cost for it or if I should wait a bit but run the risk I pay for the Majority…..Then again if I do get this now I can play MGS: Ground Zeroes as soon as it comes out which they say is early 2014! :D

  • Kai2591

    I’ll wait till they release Destiny and/or FFXV.
    Unless they release them for PC too, in which case, I’ll have zero reason to get a PS4.
    Except maybe for Knack, but that’s just one game…

  • mike dickson

    wow this list is pretty bad well guess ill wait for ff 15 and destiny but then again theres watch dogs that looks pretty sick

  • Kei-chan

    Contrast! That will prob be my first PS4 game!
