PS4 Release Date: October 29th?

This topic is locked from further discussion.

#1 Posted by drakekratos (1975 posts) -

Some websites have done a lot of digging and found out that ACIV is coming out on October 29th, and will be on "next-gen consoles". Wouldn't it make perfect sense for them to release this game on PS4 launch day to optimize their sales? 

That seems more likely than releasing it first on PS3, and then releasing it a week or two later on PS4. 

 

Right now it's just speculation, but with Sony announcing "Holiday 2013" as their launch window, most people have suspected an early November release for PS4, so late-October would make sense too.

If their significant other(or parents) are willing to camp out in line :-)

They'll just release it later when the PS4 launches. If I were to make a bet, I'd put my chips on November 19th.

That doesn't have to be the case. Some games do come out before the launch of the console.

That doesnt mean the PS4 launch date is October 29th.  

 

Assassins Creed 3 came out October 30th on 360/PS3.  The Wii U version followed at the console's release.

Assassin Creed games are traditionally launched in November BTW.... so why would they change it up all of a sudden? I'm thinking it's because of the PS4 launch

Well AC3 came out end of October as well so it could just be following that trend. They could be avoiding having their sales disrupted by other big games coming out in November as well as possibly being cannibalized by Watch Dogs

HAhahahahaah Confirmed games>>>>>> made up games truth hurts dont it.
#25 Posted by AdobeArtist (22972 posts) -

Buying any console day 1 is always an unwise purchase. It's at its most expensive and the launch library is almost always lack luster, where you're lucky if there's 1 standout title in the first 6 months. You're basically paying more for less. If you wait, not only does the library build up for more quantity and quality, you can then get all that for a lower price.

The only reason to do it in my book is if you are big into your "gamer profile" ... is the PS4's profile seperate from PS3 (as in trophy reset ect)?

Killzone has never been mediocre and Infamous 2 was one of the best sandbox styled games ever to grace consoles. It's easy to call a series mediocre if you are a bitter fanboy but that doesn't make your opinion fact. Hope you enjoy paying 400 bucks for a cable box hooked up to a camera and marred with a bunch of gimmicky games and worn out franchises.

Hahahaa I love being classed as a lem.... it makes it all the funnier when your wrong. coming from someone who got the "Rank in the top 4% of players for a month" in Killzone 2 I can ROYALLY confirm that the game was a joke despite being the best in the series it wwas trully an A-AA game, certainly not AAA. what modern multiplayer shooter has damn input lag?

Killzone never mediocre what planet you live on pal, Killzone one was terrible 2 had good multiplayer but terrible campaign, 3' multiplayer was broken but just above average. Sp again terrible. Has the worst character ever created in Ricco. Infamous 2 flopped get over it. Ps3 will be over £400 bucks hooked up to a camera (eye toy) marred with a bunch of gimmicky move games (media molecule), Launching with Krapzone 4 if that aint warn out I don't know what is. And thats all confirmed.

-People overstate the shortcomings of the killzone series to describe it as terrible when on a whole the series is good with some noticeable flaws. -Media Molecule has never released a terrible game and only showed a demo of one project they were working on with the move. This has not been confirmed as a game. -There are no Move launch titles so far announced for the PS4 and very little focus was put on Move in the entire conference. -The PlayStation Eye will not be used in the same manner as Kinect and there hasn't been any evidence that Sony will be focusing all their games around motion control.

And there has been no evidence that MS will be focusing all their games on motion controls, or will have no new IPs, or will primarly produce a set top box but you throw round comments to the contrary. and the playstation eye is the same but you hold a wand instead of nothing, killzone isnt terrible as a whole but it is definitely mediocre

Killzone actually scored very well and holds a AAA rating both here and in metacritic.

As for Infamous 2, "flopping" that does NOT mean it's a bad game. 8.5 is actually a great score. Flop in the System Wars metagame only means the score didn't meet the hype. Lots of games can be of great quality and still be flops here.

I highly doubt it. Just like the launch of the PS3... Madden launched during its regular time frame for the PS2 then was available on launch day for the PS3. The time frame does sound good though... late Oct - early Nov.

If their significant other(or parents) are willing to camp out in line :-)

Or if they're smart enough to go to Game Stop and sign up to be the first to know and get e-mailed that they can come down and put $50 down for each PS4 they want. Just an idea & it's what I've done.

Infamous 2 got a 7.5 Plus Killzone 3 only has AA on here and metacritic, Killzone 2's saving grace was its MP

I think we should all team up and donate a dollar towards buying Kuraimen a PS4 to lessen the financial burden on his mother. Put me down for $5.
