The PS4′s launch game line up – the usual suspects & potential candidates

OPM: With a PlayStation 4 reveal looking imminent within the week we line potential candidates for a PS4 launch line up? Based on rumours, investor calls and suspicious silences here are the games we suspect could be starting up next-gen gaming. (Battlefield 4, Destiny, FIFA 14, Killzone 4, Next-Gen, PS4)

I think it's going to be something like;

Battlefield 4, next CoD, inFamous 3, next AC, MGS Ground Zeroes, Watch Dogs and some new Playstation exclusive game or two which is always the case when a new system is released from sony to showcase what it can do.

I think the next Little Big Planet will be launching w/ the PS4.

I would expect KZ4, Motorstorm and Infamous 3 to be in there as most likely launch titles. Would certainly make me happy .
sdozzo  +   1021d ago
I'd second that kz4
jjb1981  +   1021d ago
I'd third that
TimeSkipLuffy  +   1021d ago
Sorcery 2 X'D

Hmm, they all sound decent and are expected but Sony might just troll us with this.

* Kaz Hirai comes on stage at E3
* Takes off sunglasses
* "The PS4 will also launch with:

Vigilante 8: 3rd Offence
Power Stone 3
Shenmue 3
Bloody Roar
Road Rash"

Hell freezes over
World peace achieved
Bobby Kotick donates blood
Strongman stops trolling
Activision decides to use new engine for Call of Duty

Okay fine, that's a bit far fetched; no way would Activision do that.

Activision desides to use a new engine for COD, which they will use the entire generation

Don't be ridiculous!!!

Strongman will never stop trolling :)

Actually, I think Activision will have a new engine. Maybe not this year, as I reckon any COD game will be multi-gen but definitely for 2014. Even though I feel their engine is not that bad for the things a CoD game needs, it seems that publisher based engines are where it's at next gen.. it would make sense.

Zenimax - Idtech5/Gamebryro 2.0
EA - Frostbite 2
Crytek - CryEngine3
Epic - Unreal 4
Square-Enix - Luminous
Konami - Fox
Activision.... maybe new engine w/help from Bungie?

btw, would love to see a new Road Rash.. it's long overdue!

I was gonna say Shenmue 3. MEGATON launch title!!
Hagaf22  +   1021d ago
If the launch list is close to that, PS4 will have a much better start then PS3. I think its slightly shooter heavy, and those are all big shooter so i dont see them released together though.
Detoxx  +   1021d ago
1080P-60FPS-64 player BF4 is all I want!
MariaHelFutura  +   1021d ago
I can't wait to hear about BF4. I still play BF3 constantly.
andibandit  +   1021d ago
@Detox i wanna skip 64-player and go straight to 128, lets get a war started.
kneon  +   1021d ago
After playing a quite a lot of MAG going down to 128 player would seem empty. I want 1000's of players at once, a virtual war.
Septic  +   1021d ago

Planetside 2? 2000 players. It can get overwhelming at times.

Just this morning I was playing as a sniper and as I came out of a base and turned around, my screen was filled with enemies. I could have closed my eyes, pressed the left mouse button and probably get a triple kill in one shot.

Instead...I just froze thinking, WTF DO I SHOO....*boom tank shell to my face*

native 720p-60fps-64 player BF4 will do me
chasegarcia  +   1021d ago
A new Socom. one can dream.
mamotte  +   1021d ago
All big studios from Sony are working in their last shots for the PS3. GTA5, The Last of US, GOW: Ascension, Beyond... not to be pessimist, but I dont think the PS4 will launch with a line of AAA games, at least not many. Maybe Battlefield 4, but we'll have to wait 5-6 months to get really heavy hitters on the console.

It happens with every console.
remanutd55  +   1021d ago
I expect Evolution Studios, Guerrilla Games, Media Molecule and Sucker Punch to announce their next gen games at the feb20th event. oh my god 4 AAA exclusive ps4 titles right there.
Mm New IP
inFAMOUS vita/inFAMOUS PS4 or New IP from Sucker Punch
thats way better than the ps3 launch line up plus i would add
Eight Days
The Getaway 3
The Last Guardian
and the ps4 will have the best launch line up on any sony console/handheld ever.
