Games that would get the PS4 off to an amazing launch

With the growing anticipation of the PS4, Orbis, or whatever Sony decide to name their next console, one thing is for certain, it will need amazing games to get it off the ground at launch. In the day and age where gamers have so many things fighting for their attention, iPad, Xbox 720, WiiU, PC games, and whatever else arises in the future. Sony needs to do something to entice gamers to choose their next system. Also with the apparent death of the 3rd party exclusive it appears the burden of championing the PS4 over the competition falls squarely on the shoulders of Sony. Also a stellar launch line up for a system, is very important to establishing a positive perception with the press and gamers alike. But, alas on to the games. (Next-Gen, PS3, Sony)

Uncharted 4
Killzone 4
Septic  +   1240d ago
Yeah those two are a given but how about some other IP's we haven't seen:

* The Getaway- So much potential here
* Vigilante 8- An epic car combat game and one that would fill the void in the absence of Twisted Metal
* Timesplitters- if this came out....mind=blown
* Tenchu- a proper next gen version that is- that would be incredible
* Destruction Derby- I actually lived on the demo of Destruction Deby 2- with all the improvements in visuals and realistic physics, the next gen iteration could be phenomenal. Its begging to be made!
Tultras  +   1240d ago
There is twisted metal on the playstation 3.
Septic  +   1240d ago

Yeah sorry I was alluding to the fact that there might not be another Twisted Metal game going by David Jaffe's own speculation.
Kingnichendrix  +   1240d ago
Omfg The Getaway would be incredible, the storyline was amazing and so were the graphics at the time.. ahh nostalgia
HammadTheBeast  +   1240d ago
Also, Legend of Dragoon 2 to fill up the RPG genre.
Calm Down Sunshine  +   1240d ago
Jamzluminati  +   1240d ago
Uncharted 4
Killzone 4
inFamous 3
Little Big Planet 3
Final Fantasy Vs(We know how that's going)
Project from David Cage
Grand Turismo 6
Title from Insomniac
Some MMO like starhawk/warhawk
Some quality PS Move stuff

That needs to be what they have for launch so people can stfu about the 2006 PS3 launch.
Ducky  +   1240d ago
"Some MMO like Starhawk/Warhawk"

How about Planetside2?
Considering that SOE is behind it, it would be a great way to launch a next-gen system with a free-to-play MMOFPS where 2000 players battle it out.

Although, that also means that the PS4 will need some relatively beefy hardware.

Check out Dust 514. Currently F2P on PS3, and devs hope to move it to the PS4 network along with Sony when it launches.

as a PS fan sony has KILLED off plenty of PS1 titles and moved into FPS,MMO'S gaming. if SONY want to re-coup their old school gamer with "new" this gen. gamer they better come up with something ALL can enjoy. not every gamer like or love FPS only games.

just thinking of those games on next PS4 makes my mind hurt lol
Relientk77  +   1241d ago
That list then add new installments to these franchises:

Syphon Filter
Breath of Fire
Legend of Dragoon
Run_bare  +   1240d ago
Folklore is the first game I bought with my PS3, i really want a sequel to Folklore, too bad Game Republic is no more, I wish Sony do something about it.
HammadTheBeast  +   1240d ago
Legend of Dragoon sequel, or Dragon war prequel for sure.
rbailey  +   1241d ago
Most of these are definitely a given in my opinion. Great List.
FXGAMESKILLEEN  +   1241d ago
thx man while these are a given.... It's extremely optimistic to think all these games will be there at launch but with the development cycle of each game they should arrive relatively close to the launch of the PS4
rbailey  +   1241d ago
Agreed... If they can release both Uncharted 4 and Killzone 4 with another LittleBigPlanet sequel I think most people will be happy with that to start off.
I definitely wanna see another Heavenly Sword and Infamous 3 though.
NastyLeftHook0  +   1241d ago
Uncharted 4

Infamous 3

Gran turismo 6

Duke Nukem Forever 2 :D hahaha
makemyteapunk  +   1240d ago
Unless they come up with a game as good or as popular as Halo or Gears, the PS4 will be Sonys last console. Overrated games like KZ and uncharted just wont cut it.
Quiescent  +   1240d ago
360 fanboy appears from shadows
NeoTribe  +   1240d ago
Don't hate what you can't play. Uncharted overated? That's why it has more awards than any game has ever achieved. Including your generic oversized appendage, meathead of a game gears is. Halo is a decent game though. Other than that, what else is there to play on the old pay as you play box?
makemyteapunk  +   1240d ago
Uncharted is the most awarded game ever? Could you show me evidence of this? How can a game thats not even the highest rated this gen, be the most awarded ever? Seems strange to me.

You actually think there are only 2 games to play on Xbox? Thats just sad. What about the highest racing series of all time(forza)?
AznGaara  +   1240d ago
Highest racing game series of all time... let me get this straight... OF ALL TIME??? So you mean Gran Turismo?

Sigh. You'd think with the internet and all it's info ppl would do some research before making such statements:
thehusbo  +   1240d ago
'as good or popular as halo or gears' lol.. No 360 exclusive has even beaten Littlebigplanet 1, which has 95 metacritic. Not good.
humbleopinion  +   1239d ago
And as popular as they also are, no PS3 exclusive or X360 exclusive has even beaten Super Mario Galaxy 1, which has a 97 metacritic. Not good.

Also, LittleBigPlanet 2 scored only 91 whereas Super Mario Galaxy 2 managed to retain the 97 score. This is also not good.
gobluesamg  +   1240d ago

I guess I don't understand what you fan boys gain from making statements like these. What a meaningless existence it is trying to get a rise out of commenters on a video game site. I have a ps3 only and have no interest In Xbox but I understand why others enjoy it and games like Gears. There has to be something more that you can find to contribute, not only as intelligent conversation but also to humanity.
Hicken  +   1239d ago
So, just to confirm, you're trolling, right? You don't actually believe what you're saying. We all know that.

... right?

How does this guy still have three bubbles? No, how has he not been marked for trolling even ONCE?
TongkatAli  +   1240d ago
Jake and Daxter 4
Little Big Planet 3
Crash Bandicoot
Spyro The Dragon
Mortal Kombat

I have a random list, lol. I know the PS4 would make a killing with these launch games.
KMCROC54  +   1240d ago
these would be on other plats not just sony.

Crash Bandicoot
Spyro The Dragon
Mortal Kombat
majiebeast  +   1240d ago
Gran turismo 6 would be a insane system seller.

Your games list is pure my mouth.
topekomsi  +   1240d ago

Plus insomniac is no longer exclusive to sony.
Adolph Fitler  +   1240d ago
Oh & definately a new Timesplitters & Haze 2: Retribution. lol.
Run_bare  +   1240d ago
Great list, I would like the following:

1. Another title from "That Game Company"
2. Final Fantasy Versus XIII or FF XV
3. Uncharted 4
4. Fatal Frame or Siren game (a good horror game) - so lacking this generation
5. Zone of Enders 3

The above is my wish list, I hope 1 or 2 of them happen.
KMCROC54  +   1240d ago
Isn't that game company free from Sony & venturing to the world of multi-platforms
genius  +   1240d ago
sorry i forgot 13- prince of persia
MacDonagh  +   1240d ago
All I want is the company to survive and continue to make great games. That's all I want.
LNDCalling  +   1240d ago
Personally I would like to see a bunch of new IPs alongside: 8 Days, The Getaway, Agent, Heavenly Sword 2, Metal Gear Solid 5 (yes I know it wouldn’t be truly chronological, nevertheless a formal MGS5 would be great), Final Fantasy Versus XIII (could well end up next gen) etc..

Then Sony show trailers for some revisited franchises to release the following year, like: Folklore, Syphon Filter, Legend of Dragoon, Timesplitters, Parappa the Rapper etc..


I understand the above would be risky but sometimes people like change and I don’t want to see great franchises beaten to death even though I do want to see sequels at some point, e.g. Killzone, Uncharted, Gran Turismo, Resistance, God of War, LittleBigPlanet, infamous etc, sequels for these, imo, should be saved for three+ years in to next gen!

Do it SONY!

genius  +   1240d ago
we wish to see great game but we really wish and really hope the company respect there fans and listen to them and what they want ( respect the pepole not the money )
r21  +   1240d ago
The current games i can think of is
Uncharted 4
Killzone 4
Resistance 4
Jak 4
and finally the one to stand out the most LBP 3D

inFamous 3 might not happen unless its a prequel IMO.
remanutd55  +   1240d ago
my ideal ps4 launch line up would be:
1. Motorstorm World Tour ( the most brutal and hardcore motorstorm game to date )
2. Killzone 4, Resistance 4 or Uncharted 4
3. New Guerrila Games IP
4. New Media Molecule IP
5. New Sucker Punch IP
6. Locoroco on ps4
7. Syphon Filter
8. MediEvil
9. Heavenly Sword Resurrection
and then third party games.
TimeSkipLuffy  +   1240d ago
1. Uncharted 4
2. REAL Exclusive Final Fantasy
3. Resistance 4
4. Killzone 4
5. The Last of Us 2
6. Exclusive Monster Hunter
7. God of War X
8. Exclusive MGS
Sizzon  +   1240d ago
My ideas:

Uncharted 4 / Jak 4 by Naughty Dog
Killzone 4 by Guerilla Games
A new Sucker Punch IP
A new Syphon Filter game

and Gran Turismo 6 by Polyphony Digital
torchic  +   1240d ago
Infamous 3 no doubt, set in a more tropical environment maybe Miami, with the city being much more alive. Infamous 3 is coming and it's going to be so sick.

Final Fantasy XV would also rock, Luminous is looking like THE next-gen engine.

all that plus Battlefield 4, I would pre-order a PS4 in a heartbeat.
3-4-5  +   1240d ago
Sony, as well as Micro and nintendo all really need some New IP's..

They usually are more abundant in the beginning of console cycles anyways.
remanutd55  +   1240d ago
you mean Like Rain, Puppeteer, The last of Us, Beyond Two Souls, Tearaway, Soul Sacrifice?
TongkatAli  +   1240d ago
Sony needs to new ips ? .............are you joking ?
Ulf  +   1240d ago
Of all the franchises Sony owns, MAG is the one where a PS4 launch window sequel would have the greatest effect.

If MAG had launched with the PS3, rather than well after CoD4, the console war would have been over before it started.
Young_ART  +   1240d ago
Can us socom fans get a real sequel, and not some spin off, cod clone?... :(
izumo_lee  +   1240d ago
There is usually one Sony franchise that makes a lot of people excited in positive &/or negatives ways and that is GRAN TURISMO.

Arguably Sony's biggest franchise the GT series is consistently the biggest seller for the PS brand. Recognized around the world by gamers & pros this is the game that will & can give the next Playstation a good start.
smashcrashbash  +   1240d ago
Well a new Medievil and Jak game would be nice.
Straightupbeastly  +   1240d ago
Shadow of collosus 2
Crash bandicoot
Jak and daxter 4
Socom 2 HD, interface and controls upgrade
Kingdom hearts
Ridge racer HD, interface upgrade

This is a start. If Sony goes the uncharted, Killzone route again they'll be dead on arrival
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   1240d ago
I love these comments all of them would make me buy a PS4 in a heartbeat. Always good to know Sony will step up when it comes to games.
