Wow, no one can say the "PS4 haz no gamez" at launch with those two along with Watch Dogs releasing along side the console. Only thing that can hold PS4 back is the price now.

Definitely a strong start, inFamous: Second Son should release in Spring 2014 to keep the sales momentum going

Killzone and infamous!!! Destiny actually looked pretty good too!
The PS4 just proved that a certain console is not next Gen material.

I really wonder how Nintendo is going to promote their console this year. Given the announcements today, Sony appears to be trying pace themselves and build considerable momentum towards their holiday release. By holding back some today they can effectively pull off another reveal at E3 when they show off the console and the price.

Given that Nintendo never attends TGS and Microsoft has yet to make their splash, it will be interesting to see how Nintendo responds this year. They better come to E3 with a slew of games and make some noise.

@Army_of_Darkness and The Great Melon

The Wii U is a next-gen console (considering overall it's a bit more powerful than the previous generation DX9, it being DX10), it's just low-end console by today's standards which kind of makes this PS360 vs. Wii over again, but not quite as bad, since it's actually HD this time around.

As far as how they're going to promote their console, is by bringing out huge NIntendo franchises, and having a near perfect E3. If they don't bring the big guns and soon, they're dead. This year's E3 is their last chance to take advantage of their year head-start, but now seeing what a true powerhouse console can do is going to hurt them no matter what. Nintendo needs a 3D Mario September, Mario Kart U November, Super Smash U January, Metroid March, and Zelda in May, all supplemented by games like Yoshi Yarn, X, Bayonetta 2, Wind Waker HD, More HD Remakes, and a Pokemon MMO holiday 2014 because 3rd party games will obviously be using superior hardware on the PS4 and likely Xbox 1080.

Nintendo is terribly slow about getting content out there, and the Wii U is going to be on life support if they don't amaze at E3, and get these games out before the PS4 and Xbox 1080 launch.

Nintendo has an uphill battle up a mountain on their hands with their console, and I don't see the summit anywhere in sight. I'm for the Wii U, but I know I'm getting a PS4 Day 1. It comes down to will Nintendo have enough software in time to become that second console people buy.

Their bodies werent ready for that premier and thus they were too paralyze to clap from all that awesomeness.

Exactly. Then this happened after all that awesomeness. They had to close their eyes for a bit.

no what happens is they are constantly switching between screen / camera , when the logo of KZ came up im pretty sure they were cheering , but we were watching from the screen source at that moment

showtimefolks  +   1084d ago
and there is so much unknown that sony will reveal at E3

but KZ is my favorite FPS so if that launches with PS4 than i am good

either way i am getting the system max price $600 minimum price $450-500

with the specs of ps4, this might be the 1st gen in a long time where a console can hang with PC atleast for first few years after launch

sony always looks for killer specs but this time they have out done themself

3 of my most wanted games so far as launch titles, has sealed the deal for day one purchase of the PS4.

I wonder will the PS4 launch the same day as Watch Dogs or after.
azshorty2003  +   1084d ago
I think he said that Watch Dogs will launch on PS3 & 4 at the same time, but that doesn't mean it'll be a launch title. It could come out on both shortly after the PS4 launch.

@bibyDreath

Unless they specify "launch day", then they may mean weeks after the ps4 is actually out. EIther way it will be considered a launch title

Nintendo fans don't get mad at Sony, they get mad at people like you. Knock it off and leave commenting to people who can use proper grammar and don't feel the need to incite flame wars constantly.

What do you think was going to happen to them after the conference? Serves them right after making a ton of claims that the Wii U would be more powerful or on par with the PS4.

Well that settles it.

I was thinking to myself, shall I get it at launch or not?
I always have previously but I was considering waiting.

But it would be at least a year before a price drop or a hardware revision.
Im not the type that would wait a year even if it was going to be half the launch price.

Killzone and Watchdogs at launch just seals the deal.
MattyG  +   1084d ago
Killzone AND inFamous? Sold. I just hope they produce enough units for everyone who wants one so we don't have a PS2/Wii type debacle.
nigelp520  +   1084d ago
All we need is RIDGE RACER 8
stonecold3  +   1084d ago
i saw some of those games and that sold me straight away im one of those early adopters so im in ?
WooHooAlex  +   1084d ago
And I plan on playing both, along with Knack, which looked pretty great too. Although Cerny didn't mention a release window on that one did he? Probably a 2014 title.

Killzone Shadow Fall as a launch title....man...Sony is doing everything right...day 1 for me.
Sevir  +   1084d ago
Killzone:Shadow Fall had me sold
but seeing Infamous: Second Son and Watch Dog I was convinced that this is the Next generation leap i was looking forward to! the KZ:Shadow Fall footage looked on par with Crysis 3 on Max settings! and This is a PS4 launch title! I can only imagine what ND will do with this Platform...

MS I'm looking at you next!
