‘inFamous 3′ And ‘Killzone 4′: How To Peg The PS4′s Launch Titles

The word is officially on the street: The PlayStation 4 and the next Xbox will be hitting the streets in time for Christmas, up against each other in a rare console showdown. Microsoft has a countdown to E3, and Sony might be revealing PS4 information officially as soon as next month.

And really, big deal. Both of these consoles are by all accounts pretty much the same thing when it comes to actually playing games. What matters are the games themselves, and Sony hasn’t kept what franchises will be coming to the PS4 much of a secret.

Why? Because of their collections. (E3, PS3)

Well Sucker Punch said they were interested in in making Infamous 3 but claimed they weren't working on it at the moment. Guerrilla Games said they had something show off earlier this month.

Guerrilla Games will most definitely launch a title on PS4 launch.

Sucker Punch could be making a new Ip or secretly developing Infamous 3. But I do think they'll make launch with AAA caliber title nonetheless.

I'm doubtful but hopeful for a Sucker Punch launch title. New IP or infamous 3 would be nice though.

Even though Ninja Theory gets a lot of hate from the hard core DMC fans I'd like to see a new Heavenly Sword as a PS4 launch title too since the original was a launch title and it was a 'goodun.

Infamous 3 would be enough for me to buy a launch ps4...

I do think well see heavenly sword 2 at some point on ps4

Its been a long time since we've seen anything from them, unless Sucker Punch is working on something ridiculously ambitious, I think its a safe bet that whatever they're working on could be a launch title. Although the same can be said for Media Molecule, Guerrilla Games, Evolution, Studio Japan and Polyphony.

Its pretty crazy to think about all the studios they have in their stable who have been obviously working on PS4 games for the last few years. That launch window is gonna be pretty special.

Sucker Punch could very well be making a launch title for the PS4. THe last game they developed was Infamous 2 which back in 2011. It's time for another game.

IF they are Killzone 4 and inFamous 3 then it would be wise to give the HD Collections for free on PS+ / Gaikai so that people have the entire series Day 1 as well as making it an impulse buy for all consumers interested in the PS4.

If inFamous 3 and Killzone 4 are launch titles for PS4 I would jizz so hard.
RogueStatus28  +   574d ago
Oh my god a new Infamous? With Cole McGrath?! and a new KillZone, Killzone 4?! :O

GG are working on Killzone 4 and a new IP. but that new IP has been in development for a little bit. E3 we should hear something

Infamous 3 isn't happening atleast not right now, i would be shocked if SP come on stage to show Infamous 3. I think they are also doing a new IP

i think going forward sony's main studios will do 2-3 games in a series than move on and sony will find a 2nd party partner to continue the franchises

that way sony gets its established game franchises and game studios get to work on newer stuff

Killzone 4

should be ready to launch with PS4. I think sony will surprise us all by showing The Last Guardian and releasing it day one with PS4. Sony sent some of its top development talent to help finish the Last Guardian.

show some new IPs at E3

release trailer for Uncharted 4
new Ratchet game done by Insomniac
RogueStatus28  +   574d ago
Oh my god can't wait to see a new Ratchet and Clank game get announced. or Uncharted 4 with Drake. Sony has so many AMAZING franchises.

Sony should have a combination of sequels and new IP's for launch titles for the PS4.

I hope to see Uncharted 4, Killzone 3 and a new IP from media molecule.

*Killzone 4
Karpetburnz  +   574d ago
oops haha I cant believe I diddnt notice, LOL
akaakaaka  +   574d ago
Well that KILLZONE game GG was working could have been this Vita game and for next gen they may focus their work in a new IP.
Then after that work in KILLZONE and after that continue with the new IP and switch torn and I will be a happy fan!

Like INf. but Sucker P. needs a new ip that will bring new ways to play a open world it needs to be similar to INf. but more over the top action with a new more of a adventure plot.

and leave INf. continue on the vita.

I can't see Sony launching a huge game like killzone or infamous with ps4.
Those games usually come a year later.

Although I do expect a great launch this time from Sony, I doubt well see anything too big.
Most console makers save their big guns for the following year after launch.

My thought is ps4's launch will include the yearly sports game ports of madden, FIFA and NHL 2014, a couple of sub par racing games, a couple of decent first party games showing the capabilities of the console and 1 or 2 obligatory fps from activision and ea.

Then in the spring the big guns will start rolling out.
I might be wrong but realistically, that's how I see it going based on previous hardware launches.

But whatever games launch with jt, I'm buying it day one regardless.
StrongMan  +   574d ago
Those would be awesome day one buys for me. Sony has so many amazing exclusive franchises to choose from so the possibilities are endless. Also, don't forget that Sony is the king of new IPs as well so expect to see new IPs at launch as well. Sony gives gamers what they want.
black911  +   574d ago
Just have 1 game from all major genres. Fighting action adventure sports and of course Shooter.
TheOneEyedHound  +   574d ago
Hopefully The Last Guardian & Agent become Ps4 launch titles, that would send a big statement .
WooHooAlex  +   574d ago
This probably isn't the place to post this, but this is my prediction on the games we'll see at E3 when they unveil the PS4.

* Uncharted 4 stage demo
* Gran Turismo 6 tech demo (possibly in 4K if the PS4 supports it)
* Killzone 4 stage demo
* Sucker Punch new IP revealed
* Media Molecule new IP revealed (unless Sony makes them do LBP3)
* New Motorstorm
* Hot Shots Golf
* Super Stardust
* PSN exclusive titles from Giant Sparrow and Zindagi

if they make killzone 4 I hope it plays like killzone 2 :)

"The word is officially on the street"

What does that even mean? If its the word on the street, its not official. PS4 and XB3 arent even officially announced yet.

OT, give me The Last Guardian and I'll buy whatever plays it.
FrostyZipper  +   574d ago
As much as I really would like to see another inFamous game I really don't see where they can go with the franchise after the two radically different endings (depending on your karmic alignment). If they went ahead with another inFamous title I'd rather see it focus on another character with a unique set of powers.
