So, which launch day games are you all getting for the PS4?

This topic is locked from further discussion.

It was all so easy for me before with Watchdogs leading the charge. But with that sadly out of the picture, and promising Drive Club also being shifted to next year...we aren't left with much games for the PS4 at launch day. So, I ask you, which game or games are you all getting during launch day? Why? So in this way we can discuss and perhaps make it easier for people to choose between the limited launch titles.

I'll go first. For me it was Watchdogs all the way, it felt truly next-gen of all the games that were supposed to launch. However, with that game delayed, I was extremely sad and worried what to play on my brand new PS4. At first I thought of BF4, I always liked BF series and with better visuals and finally 64 players on the consoles felt great. However, I grew tired of military shooters and I really needed a break from that. So, this is when I switched to Killzone: Shadow Fall. I never played the original KZ game, however I loved KZ 2. The weighty controls and tactical gameplay felt different and great, the weapons felt raw and as if it packed quite a punch. The SP was good, but the multiplayer felt great. However, with the third game, I felt the series went into more faster paced, 'kill-streak' direction. They reduced the player count and it became more run and gun shooter in the veins of that military shooter everyone keeps buying every year for some reasons. I didn't like it. Hopefully KZ: Shadow fall will be more like 2 and will be more tactical and instead of mimicking that series, it will stick to it's signature gameplay.

Bonus points: Looks gorgeous and Free Multiplayer DLC maps!

When I do get a PS4 sometime after christmas I will get Killzone Shadow Fall, and I will pay the $10 to upgrade Assassin's Creed Black Flag from the PS3 version to the PS4 version.

Got Killzone and Knack for day 1.

I kinda got screwed with my most anticipated titles getting delayed with Driveclub and Watch Dogs. So i have to settle with AC IV and Battlefield 4 now

#5 Posted by nyc05 (10160 posts) -

Killzone and AC IV for me.

#6 Posted by lensflare15 (6163 posts) -

I won't be getting them on launch day, but I plan on getting Killzone Shadowfall, Injustice Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition, and possibly Assassins Creed IV

#7 Edited by FPSfan1985 (2008 posts) -

NBA 2K14, and Madden. Will be playing a ton of planetside 2 as well.

#8 Edited by marcheegsr (2425 posts) -

My final list.

Killzone sf, Bf4, Fifa 14, Ac black flag.

Nfs rivals on the 22nd bc thats when it comes out here.

Killzone Shadowfall is a definite for me. I'm not so sure about the runner up though. I'm excited about NBA 2k14 and Need For Speed Rivals and I'm ashamed to admit it, but CoD Ghost and Battlefield 4 both seem fun too.

As a Playstation fan I'm in for KZSF. As for multiplatform I was never sold on Watch Dogs as playing a vigilante-hacker didn't seem to exciting. I'm now considering NBA2K14. I've always rented that franchise but if it plays as well as it has in recent years and really looks like that latest trailer indicates it just might be a launch purchase.

Killzone and maybe Knack... Possibly bf4

#12 Posted by JasonDarksavior (9325 posts) -

Battlefield 4 + KZ. Should be an awesome night :)

#13 Posted by blamix (192 posts) -

Killzone, after that I'm getting ac4, then battlefield 4

#14 Posted by bezza2011 (2193 posts) -

I'm a little stuck as to what to get, i had Fifa 14 and Watchdogs on pre order and now a little stuck.

Not into FPS's and AC4 i had to drag myself through AC2 which was a complete bore and way to repetitive for me and to easy, I might just get Knack and NBA2k14 but i'm not a massive basketball fan being from the uk but might get it to try and understand it alot more and it does look good. i may just get killzone just so i have it because it's an exclusive and thats my aim this time around is to buy every single exclusive for it.

see i'm writing in riddles it's that hard lol

I am considering the following. Obviously I won't get all of them. Probably 2-3 from that list.

  1. Battlefield 4
  2. Madden 25
  3. NFS: Rivals
  4. NBA Live
  5. Ghosts
  6. FIFA 14
  7. Killzone

KillZone and BattleField 4

that's it!

well... maybe...

#17 Posted by Terrencec06 (3394 posts) -

Killzone and BF4. Plus the Plus games. Sound Shapes, Escape Plan, Contrast and Flow(all because I've already bought them on other systems.

Honestly them pulling watch dogs really hurts the game itself. Because now a gamer like me who has taken notice of games pushed back over the years gets suspicious of the actual quality. Usually that stuff happens because the game is average at best and they are worried. Now I see the game for what it probably is. Just another sand box game with gimmicks in it. And will more then likely just buy it now when it's half price on e-bay. Instead of buying it brand new with my PS4.

#19 Edited by CWEBB04z (4521 posts) -

Killzone, BF4, Madden and AC Black Flag.

#20 Edited by The_Last_Ride (68813 posts) -

Going to add NBA 2k14 and Need for Speed Rivals

#21 Posted by Prince_Denspion (2553 posts) -

I was able to get the battlefield 4 launch bundle so I'll have that one for sure, since budget will be wiped out that week, i'll pick up killzone and one other the next payday, and I have Destiny pre-ordered so I'll be in the beta as well of that game.

#22 Posted by Josh5890 (1010 posts) -

For me it is NBA 2K14 and Knack.

You forgot racing Marc. I need some paint swapping in my life ha. DriveClub would have likely been on that list along with Rivals if it wasn't delayed. I'm also really looking forward to Resogun but seeing as I'll be getting that with PS+ it felt wrong to list here.

#27 Posted by Bangerman15 (1961 posts) -

Killzone, maybe Knack, and Resogun. That's it for my ps4 now that driveclub is gone. The other games like bf4 and what not I can just play on my PC.. I MIGHT buy cod ghosts on ps4 though if the xbox one version actually is 720p XD

#28 Posted by CTR360 (6851 posts) -

killzone SF NBA 2K14 BF4 for me

#29 Posted by DaRq_MiNoS (558 posts) -

I'm thinking AC4, Killzone, and Knack, but I'll wait to see reviews before I buy.

#30 Posted by bezza2011 (2193 posts) -

after alot of thought i'm getting Fifa 14, Knack and a controller seeing as tho in the UK it isn't out till end of november i have christmas to get killzone and the ps4 camera. and i may treat myself to NBA 2K14 as i've not had a basket ball game since ps1, don't understand the rules much but i quite like remembering again.

My plan is this time around as i'm 26 now with wife and kid, i'm going to pure my money into it and buy every PS4 firsty party exclusives, i need a good library this time around.
