PlayStation 4 To Host Big Game Sequels

Eskimo Press: "Rumors and speculation of the PlayStation 4's release date can be found floating around all corners of the Internet, and they all seem to point to a 2013 release. If this were to be true then we could surely expect a shortage of Sony PlayStation 3 exclusive titles in 2013."

All the big games are up to their 4th installments: Uncharted 4, Killzone 4, God of War 4. Would be a killer launch line up for the PlayStation 4!

majiebeast1295d ago

Lets hope they can get Gran turismo 6 out pretty fast.

portal_21295d ago

Hopefully Kaz has Alpha stage in his sights already :)

Zuperman1295d ago

BRING IT ON !!

Imagine that for a launch line up. That would be insane. The thing is, I could actually see it happening.

No need to rush Gran Turismo- they can't afford to take shortcuts this time round.

I would also like to see more new IPs. Sony don't rest on their laurels in this department so theoretically, we could be in store for an unprecedented strong line up.

If Sony can sort out what's going on with VITA and get its focus right, I don't see why the above can't happen.

I can definitely see FF Versus and The Last Guardian moving to PS4 as launch or launch window titles. After all, Ico was originally a PS1 game but they decided to move it to PS2 and it would explain the lack of info on Versus and why Square feels the need to bring out 3 games in the 13 universe.

I could also see inFAMOUS 3 being on PS4 because Sucker Punch is working on something. A new Killzone because although Guerrilla is working on Mercenaries they are a massive studio now that can work on multiple games at a time since they merged several studios like Liverpool into them. Uncharted 4 is likely because the Uncharted team has to be working on something and it's doubtful that it will be on PS3 with The Last of Us coming out this year. Gran Turismo 6 was being worked on when GT5 released but with PS4 looming I'm thinking it'll be moved to that platform. I remember Kaz saying when GT5 came out that the cars were so detailed that it was PS4 quality(and honestly there's only so much detail you can put into a car).

ABizzel11294d ago

Games that could potentially be launch titles, launch window, or Year 1 PS4 titles.

The Last Guardian
Final Fantasy Versus 13
inFamous 3
Killzone 4 (hopefully Helghast 1)
Battlefield 4
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 (Future Warfare 1)
Castlevania: Lord of Shadows 2
The Elder's Scrolls Online
Prey 2
Watch Dogs

inveni01294d ago

The marketing headline? "The year of 4" So...2014?

Gawdl3y1294d ago

Why has nobody mentioned LittleBigPlanet 3?

Tetsujin1294d ago

Wishful thinking is Socom 1-3 HD remake, I bet that alone would sell out the console within minutes.

BattleAxe1294d ago (Edited 1294d ago )

@Tetsujin

Socom 1 - Combined Assault would be the ideal collection. They would have to bring back the online co-op for Combined Assault though......Mmmmm Spicey! Since Zipper decided to screw the Socom brand before they got shut down, I'm not so sure that the Socom name holds the same value as it did during the PS2 era.

The smartest thing both Sony and Zipper could have done would have been to create a kick ass Socom launch title for the PS3, when Socom was still hot.

Some PS4 launch titles that I would like to see:

EXCLUSIVES:

- Killzone 4
- Heavenly Sword 2
- Syphon filter 5
- Gran Turismo 6
- MotorStorm 4 (as long as its as awesome as the first game in the series)

MULTI-PLATFORM:

- Rainbow Six: Patriots
- Battlefield: Bad Company 3
- Red Dead 3
- Left 4 Dead 3
- Burnout: Paradise 2

HONORABLE MENTIONS:

- Resistance 4
- God of War 4
- Agent
- Watch Dogs

****I think it priceless that people are finally admitting that they are looking forward to sequels to the big PS3 franchises moving to the PS4****

The 3 guarantees will for next gen will be Gran Turismo 6, God of War 4, and Uncharted 4, as THESE titles have been the biggest titles for Sony this gen.

But the 3 others that make just as much sense is greenlighting Little Big Planet 4, Killzone 4 and Infamous 3, but you never know if one or more of these two may not make a last minute appearance on the current gen.

You also can easily imagine that The Show franchise will continue beyond the PS3.

Last but not LEAST will be what Quantic Dreams pushes forward with next gen beyond Beyond (pun intended). No one has played it yet, but I'm guessing from the trailer that this may be them setting the world up for a new franchise.

But, the next gen title I'd most love to see would be Quantic's amazing teaser demo they showed last year 'Kara'.

What about these titles as well?

inFAMOUS3
Jak 4
The Last Guardian (possible from the delays)
New Parappa game
Gex 4
I see a bright bright future for Playstation lovers (like me). :)

HammadTheBeast1294d ago

Also, Dust 514 will be ported over and enhanced for PS4 as devs have said.

Derekvinyard131295d ago

how about some new games instead? the lack of new ip's is sad

garos821295d ago

You can criticize Sony for a lot of things.exclusive ips is not one of them

inveni01294d ago

PS3 has seen a number of new IPs. Journey, The Walking Dead, inFamous, Uncharted, etc, etc, etc. Sony has been relying very little on PS2 successes. Their PS3 success lies in these new IPs, and I assume that the PS4 will follow suit.

sashimi1294d ago

Sony has no problems with new IPs...That comment should be aimed at Nintendo and Microsoft.

Everyone knows Sony pushes out New IPs all the time, even now @ the end of the Ps3 lifecycle, so what makes you think the Ps4 won't have new IPs?

We only talk about sequels because those have the highest chance of being on next gen hardware. Its not like we can speculate on new IPs for the Ps4 since we don't even have any info on the console itself.

But since This is Sony we're talking about there will be guaranteed new IPS, so your comment is Moot

rpd1231295d ago

Don't forget Resistance 4. And maybe a Metal Gear game and inFAMOUS 3.

rpd1231294d ago

@ Ares

Yeah, so was Halo...

Reverent1294d ago

Lol, yeah... Wasn't Halo 3 originally supposed to be the last one? Then Reach... And so on. Yeah...

"Despite its excellent line up of quality exclusive AAA titles, the PlayStation 3 has struggled to reach Xbox 360 sale figures. It is pivotal for Sony Computer Entertainment's success in the gaming industry that they launch the PlayStation 4 ahead of Microsoft's next Xbox, and with an arsenal of AAA launch titles. Otherwise we just might see the PlayStation go the way of the Dreamcast."

There is no way in hell Playstation would ever end up like Dreamcast. Sega and Sony are two completely different companies. Also on the sales part, I don't think this "Journalist" got the memo. Both xbox360 AND ps3 are past 70million. Microsoft has little to no first party studios unlike Sony. I'd be a little more weary of Microsoft library than Sony's. It also seems that ThatGameCompany (makers of Journey on psn) is affiliated with Santa Monica Studios.
Naught Dog "Game of the Year" 2009
ThatGameCompany "Best Indie Game" 2012
Both Sony.....Microsoft studios.... not so much.

mysterym1294d ago

I bet sega thought that too..until the dreamcast!

abzdine1295d ago

What about The Last of Us 2? oO

HammadTheBeast1294d ago

I'd prefer if it was just one stand alone. But a sequel would be nice, depending on how it ends. If I played the game, I'd get back to you lol.

BitbyDeath1294d ago

Aside from graphics, i can't really see where ND can improve on the Uncharted series, i think they should either stick with the Last of Us or move onto another new IP.

Conzul1294d ago

@BitbyDeath
3 was good but didn't have a satisfying ending. You wouldn't want them to wrap up with *that*, would you?

BitbyDeath1294d ago

@Conzul,

True, but i wouldn't want it to get stale either.
I guess their team is big enough now to focus on multiple projects at once so due to this another Uncharted wouldn't be that bad I guess.

abzdine1294d ago

I think Sony has a good point by releasing The Last of Us at the end of PS3 cycle because they will sell loads of it due to the number of PS3 available on the market and in case it turns out to be a great game if they announce a sequel on PS4 it will be a huge system seller.

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney1295d ago (Edited 1295d ago )

I think the next Killzone should be a spin off. Maybe play as the hellgast and see more of their story.

I want to be the bad guys.

Also they need to reboot syphon filter.

ABizzel11294d ago

I've been saying that for the longest. THe Helghast are much more interesting, and thanks to KZ3 we know they actually have a "Culture" with aristocrats ruling the war, so yeah.

I also don't think it should be called Killzone 4, maybe something like Killzone Helghast Warfare (lol, nothing like that but you get what I'm saying), so it can be the start of a brand new Killzone Triology.

Ranma11294d ago

I just want a new Dark Cloud game

showtimefolks1294d ago (Edited 1294d ago )

killzone 4 should launch at release of the console or soon after to show the power of ps4 like KZ2 for ps3.

Uncharted 4 and Gt6 at launch would be the 2 killer titles than infamous 3 soon after

Heavenly Sword 2
Syphon filter 5
MotorStorm 4

sony has a huge list of Ip's. could you imagine getaway 3 at launch for ps4?

also a lot of big publishers have been quite about fall 2013 and many have said they are holding back on new Ip's till new consoles, so there could be some huge new Ip's launching around os4,xbox720

whatever happened to agent? or last guardian or FF13 versus?

Knushwood Butt1294d ago

Would be good, but despite what gaming press says, a console launch can't support, and doesn't actually need more than 2 must have titles. Any more and they are just going to fall by the wayside.

Look at the Vita and Wii U launches for example. Only a very few titles actually sold, the rest just got forgotten about.

A new gaming console will host sequels? Color me surprised.

Septic1295d ago

Hosting those kind of sequels on day one, at launch, would surely surprise you though?

LOGICWINS1295d ago

Hey Septic! Actually, it wouldn't surprise me. I expect Sony to bank on big sequels in order to garner interest for the PS4.

Septic1294d ago

Fair enough. Now thanks to you I'm going to have high expectations! You better be right!

Tetsujin1295d ago

Maybe vs13 will be released as a PS4 launch title?

Obnoxious_Informer1295d ago

It's funny we're at the point where VS13 was announced near the beginning of this particularly long console cycle, and now we're at the point where we're wondering if it's a next gen title or all together canned.

Sharingan_no_Kakashi1295d ago

And though I doubt it would be a launch title KINGDOM HEARTS 3!!!!

Man that game is gonna be gorgeous on ps4.
