I'm getting a PS4 day one for NBA 2K14… maybe FIFA and AC:Black Flag and even Madden(if it's not awful)… but the biggest reason is for what Sony has coming in the future with their exclusives.  If we are being 100% honest… Sony and MS don't have anything close to a system seller EXCLUSIVE game on launch day.

planetside 2 should be interesting on the ps4 when that comes out.

This is the launch day line up...and not the entire list of games being released for PS4 this year?

always for the first year of a console there is never an impressive launch game line-up. i bought both systems but won't play with them hard until next year. i will play DR3, killzone, bf4 (xbox 360 to xbox one), ac4 (ps3-ps4) but thats about it until next year when some of the best releases will drop. not really excited about the new systems to be honest.

was gonna grab a ps4 first then get a xbone after the new year, but there's nothing i want to play on ps4 maybe killzone but i hated the floaty controls on the ps3 hope they fixed it. but on xbone ryse, forza, and dead rising look fun. they fixed the biggest problem with the dead rising series the save points. and for games like cod, bf4, assassins creed i have a pc for those games. both consoles are a bit underwhelming in the power department i know the ps4 is more powerful but there both weak come on they shouldve used a better amd apu and some more graphic muscle. but on the other hand they can optimize the hell out of consoles look what they did with 512ram this gen, and launch games always look and run the worse. hell ive even thought of canceling my ps4 preorder and ordering a 280x to crossfire with my 7970ghz but i'll have to replace my 750 watt psu with something in the 900-1200 range to be safe. but i would regret it when the ps4 comes out just wish i had something to play on it

The PS4 launch will have plenty of games which are multiplatform, but it needs more exclusives.

Yea, thats a pretty awful launch line up. Maybe Ill get one in Spring if Infamous doesnt suck.  I dont have high hopes for the story with that emo wanker as the main character.

Pathetic launch line up and I'm not even a fan boy. Its just the way it is. Xbox One has way more exclusives launching and more games launching total. Sounds to me it is the better day one console but the PS4 might be a better console in the long run. We shall see I suppose.

Sony really needs to create some characters with some staying power to make consoles feel like they're from the same family.  Nintendo's the only company who nails that (too many nails, even).

Angry birds? Really? That's sad. I'm not even going to count that as a launch title, sorry Sony.

Don't get hung up on launch titles, whether PS4 or XBone. These games will be this generation's Kameo and Perfect Dark Zero.

At this point PS4 looks like the better option because

- A bit more powerful (see BF4 and COD:Dog)

- £80 / $100 cheaper

- Better first-party studios (Sony have Naughty Dog, Media Molecule, Sucker Punch, SCE Santa Monica etc, MS have Turn 10, 343 and a cheque book)

Ont he other hand, XBone has Kinect if you like that sort of thing, and will probably be a better all-in-one entertainment hub. So you pay your money and take your choice, and so far I'm choosing PS4 despite a fairly lacklustre launch lineup.

Well at least we have some options.

What no Fruit Ninja? Some of  the games listed are nothing more then mobile games. A lot are games that are already on XBOX 360 and PS3.

Wow both consoles launch titles put together is more than the amount of titles released on the WiiU in a year!

No Grand Turismo 7 on PS4, no buy PS4. Go away

Killzone!!!! I'll probably spend my time on BF4 and Killzone for a while...until titanfall comes out for xbox one.

What's confusing to me is that half of these games are already out for this Generation of consoles.

BF4 would be the major reason I buy a PS4 at launch, IF I was going to. But I'm not :( 64 player MP, ooooooo I can't wait

just bought COD Ghosts, BF4, and Killzone SF for the ps4. I'm going to get rid of my xbox one pre-order. I gave it a chance, but all this news about x1 having lower resoultions on their games has got me bummed out. I'll get it eventually because I really want to play Titanfall. But I'm not spending $500 on a weaker console.

@ohjtbehaaave DR3 looks cool for Xbone and, for me, Killzone SF is shaping up to be the best overall launch title. It certainly is the best looking launch title. You're right there isn't a true "system seller" at this point, but I think KZ is close....

@kris912 I don't know about that.  Maybe you weren't around for the 8 and 16bit generations...

@chieflion lol Marvel Superheroes is awesome. You'll love it despite yourself. Trust me. I've been spending more time playing it than anything else lately.

@Biotasticmeat Dead Rising 3 is the only 360 exclusive which I want. I couldn't care less about racing games even if Forza looks good. I only buy racers to get my gf to play something with me other than Nintendo games. lol Ryse looks like a QTE-fest mess. Other than that, um, it's pretty much the same multiplats as PS4...only they run at lower res on the Xbone - and probably lower framerates too. I will eventually pick up an Xbone tho after they release a SKU without the Kinect 2.0 and drop the price...I really do want to play DR3. :) But I simply refuse to be bullied into paying for Kinect again. V1.0 was useless and I seriously doubt 2.0 is going to change that.

@Biotasticmeat launch titles mean diddly squat for one.. and way more ... by that you mean like what 2 titles?  and they are launching the exact same number of titles on launch.  did you even in fact read the article in any way?

Meta_Dragon
Meta_Dragon

@Keeper_Artemus You are absolutely right. Remember the PS1 era? Spyro the Dragon; now that was a character with staying power. Even Ratchet and Clank from the PS2 era has a large staying power. But this gen, and the new one about to start is just really disappointing with the character selection.

mjswooosh
mjswooosh

@Meta_Dragon Yeah that is kind of a joke. lol I'm gonna love me some Killzone SF...it looks amazing and overall is the most interesting launch title to me on either system. But, after that the launch lineup is kinda "meh". Same thing with Xbone. I want DR3...but after that? Nada. I'm not a racer fan, so forza would have to sit on my face and wiggle to make me care. My original plan was to pick up NBA 2k14 and BF4, but might only pick up the former along with KZ SF now. The reviews and word of mouth on BF4 aint pretty. Hopefully DICE will have the bugs ironed out by launch, but that's only 10 days away so I'm not going to hold my breathe. I guess it'll be a game-day decision....

@megakick Hey now, Fruit Ninja is the only Kinect game that actually gets any use in my household when my girlfriend gets sick of playing it on her iPad and gyrates in front of the Plasma for an hour or so every other week...and this sort of, kind of justifies paying for that fucking thing. Ok, not really.

mjswooosh
mjswooosh

@Iamshmee That's just sad because neither launch lineup on these systems is very good. Both have 1 or 2 games at most that are truly desirable.

mjswooosh

@gamer112696 Titanfall = hype machine. We shall see I suppose. But I'm not going to let the hype get my hopes up. In the meantime, Killzone looks great. And BF4 should be great in 6 months after DICE irons out all the bugs. Of course, by then it might make more sense to have waited and bought a retail Premium version with all the extra content and no bugs for $50 instead of a buggy, half-finished mess at launch for $60. lol

mjswooosh
mjswooosh

@Downloadpilot Both launch lineups are underwhelming and rife with cash-ins. Each console has 1 or 2 exclusives that look great, but otherwise = meh.

mjswooosh
mjswooosh

@ck10304 It's a buggy mess anyway. It's always better to wait and buy the retail Premium version of the BF franchise for $50-60 when they release it 6-9 months post launch.

mjswooosh

@DVONvX You definitely made the right choice in the long run and really even in the short run too as long as you don't need/want DR3 or Forza. Ryse looks like a QTE-fest mess, so you're not missing much there despite the pretty visuals.

@DVONvX If you really want to experience Titanfall, id get it on PC.

@DVONvX Are you sure about this ? What about the PS4 not playing movies and MP3s ? And no digital movies ? I guess you're right ! Why pay $ 500 on a weaker console ! The first smart choice is PS4 after all !

GuPesci

@DVONvX 

But 360 was the same exact way and look how it succeeded. Itll be just fine for Microsoft they just made a balanced console imo. Im sellin my ps4 preorder.

@Meta_Dragon @Keeper_Artemus there was nathan drake... but then again this generation had a huge load of new ips on the ps3 and fewer sequels to them... heavy rain, beyond two souls, and the last of us.  none of these were planned with a sequel in mind.

Well I love your comment too. I particularly love the way you have to resort to sarcasm because you know everything I said is true.

@SerJohnnyMenace @DVONvX Movies can be played once you update it with the day 1 patch, MP3 they got the feedback of everyone and are going to discuss about it, who knows they might release a patch for that also

@SerJohnnyMenace @DVONvX 

u can play movies on ps4 if u dl patch. but i wont nor ever use my console to do anythen other then playen games

ck10304

@GuPesci @DVONvX 360 was the same way and it worked out because ps3 was a terror to develop on. Not the case anymore, so unfortunately X1 will simply have worse games in terms of raw power available

@ck10304 @GuPesci @DVONvX 

which is weird. i know the ps4 hardware is better. but really, if u can't put out AT LEAST 1080p on 60 fps, it's not time to put out a next-gen console. 

i feel nintendo jumped the gun and the other companies had to rush. 

720p at this day and age is shameful.
