What's your must-have launch day title for PS4 or Xbox One?

Gamezone: "Let's put all the technical specifications and hardware debates aside for a second and talk about something we all really care about -- games. Yes, with all of the talk of DRM and always-connected, we forgot about the most important aspect of owning a console." (Microsoft, Next-Gen, PS4, Sony, Xbox One)

I'm leaning toward getting a PS4 over an Xbox One at launch. I would probably purchase the system with Killzone: Shadow Fall and that along with Planetside 2 and Driveclub PS+ should hold me over until Black Friday.On Black Friday, I would buy Watch Dogs, Battlefield 4, and Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag.

Too bad Infamous: Second Son isn't hitting until next year, it would be a definite day 1 purchase for me.

getting KZ:SF, WatchDogs, COD:Ghost(also getting BF4..but on PC), all the F2P(also DriveClub+Edition) and thats about it for the launch day, will get more games in the following month/weeks
JohnnyBadfinger  +   792d ago
Waiting for whichever console has a bundle with bf4.
All other games can fuck off. Hopefully Xbox one but that being said if ps4 come out with a bf4 bundle ill buy that console.
JokesOnYou  +   792d ago
X1 one for me. Forza5, Ryse, Killer Instinct debating Dead Rising 3 or Watch Dogs....eventually I'll play most all of them just some will have to wait.

Edit Johnny is the bundle that important? You don't save much on the bundles just buy whichever you want and then buy bf4.

After playing BF3 again with all the spawn camping, I think I'm going to switch from BF4 to Killzone too....
greenpowerz  +   792d ago
Forza 5
Project Spark(hope it's a launch title?)

These are my must haves. Any game with massive replay value and high production value are always my Must haves. I love big bang for you buck value

From the sounds of Ryse multiplayer it could easily join my list. Going to get Ryse anyways just need to see more for it to be a day one must buy.

BF4 and Forza 5 are pre ordered along with the console. Dead Rising 3 could join my list as well, along with KI.

if i have to chose one it will be Killzone: Shadow Fall that thing looks stunning.

Otherwise i'm also getting Knack at launch and Drive Club PS+ edition will be FREE
of course F2P games like Wireframe will be available at launch as well exclusively

I have no good reason to buy an Xbox One.
I'll end up playing most of its games on PC and/or PS4 anyway. Besides, why PAY MORE when I can get better hardware, better lifetime exclusives and a better subscription service for a better value. It's the smart choice without a question.

And as for launch games, Killzone: SF, Watch_Dogs, Drive Club. But my most anticipated "launch window" game is InFamous: SS
papashango  +   792d ago
I've got a launch day ps4 pre-ordered but there's no titles currently that interest me. Shadow Fall looks like a linear snooze fest.

Only one I can think of is Watch dogs but I'm clearly getting the pc version.

It's simply going to replace my media center pc until The Division, KH3, or FF15 come out.

More than likely picking up Madden and Nka2k till then

Ya killzone is my first play, but I will be playing watchdogs , AC blackflag and BF4 as well. DriveClub PS+ too, this will be a great launch, one of the best. Lots of games to play until Infamous which is a day one for me.

Don't send me links to American stores when they are pointless to me. Ultimately yes importing would save me money as the Aussie dollar has gone to shit again. However Sony has never been supportive of the Aussie market hence my choice in Microsoft. Sony seem to make up for their losses by flogging the extra cost onto the Aussies and new zealanders .
loulou  +   792d ago
for my xbox, i will get on launch day. forza, ryse, cod, battlefield, killer instinct and either watch dogs or dead rising.

for the ps4 killzone and planetside

OMG I WISH INFAMOUS: SECOND SON CAME AT LAUNCH, but I guess I'll have to wait cuz greatness takes time to make. I'm buying a PS4 after launch day, like maybe a week after just to see everybody's reactions, but if I were to but it on launch I would get: Killzone: Shadow Fall (IMO one of the best fps on the PS, and also cuz it stayed true to its roots without going to out of place), Knack (cuz it looks so fun and cute lol...) DriveClub (PS PLUS FTW), and Watch Dogs (if it doesn't come to PC, don't know if it is).

PS4 day one with KZ, Watch Dogs and Black Flag, plus all the PS+. Probably gonna spend a lot of the first days just messing around with interface and just getting immersed in the whole thing.
BattleAxe  +   791d ago
My PS4 launch day title will be BF4 for PC.
nukeitall  +   791d ago
What? Nobody wants CoD?

Want CoD, Watchdog, Ryse and Project Spark!

BF4 looks interesting, but burned myself on BF3 campaign so not sure. Same thing with KillZone 3, but interrested in Shadow Fall. We willmsee.

Titanfalls looks amazing so day one as soon as it is released as well as Quantum Break.

A Kinect game is must and hoping for a UFC Trainer game or some other fitness game plus an awesome party game with the family.

Not your typical core gamer, eh? That's ok, I don't have time to play them.

@Ragthorn What?!? I thought Infamous Second Son would be at launch. Well, I guess I'll wait until it comes out to buy a PS4.
T2  +   791d ago
@soldierone - I love killzone but I have been playing kz3 and some of the maps are horrendous for spawn trapping ... Kz2 was much better and I hope they address this ...
Bf3 does have some spawn camping but the centuron AA guns are a good start in negating this ... I would put more gun placements in to defend bases and hopefully they do this ... Worse case scenario just drop out of servers and only join those that even out teams... The other day I was banned from a server for destroying tanks with the jet when they were shooting into our base with tanks ... This is the lowest of the low, avoid servers like that its a joke.
dedicatedtogamers  +   792d ago
KZ Shadow Fall will be my big game, and I'll keep an eye on the others like Knack and Driveclub. I'm more interested in seeing the Vita Remote Play in action and also checking out the indie titles that are available for PS4 at launch.
Oschino1907  +   791d ago
Same here for the most part, really want to get a Vita by launch but only if there is a price drop or new model/bundle announced.

I have a feeling this gen will start the same way the previous ended, PS+ and new games will have me overwhelemed and having oddly TOO MANY great games and not enough time to play them all.
onyoursistersback  +   792d ago
on the ps4 (witch i am getting)
Kill-zone/battlefield and Drivers club

if i was to ever get a Xbox one, it would have to be its exclusives...Titans fall or Killer Instinct....but fighting games dont hold too much dept to me.
Ragthorn  +   791d ago
Titan Fall will come to PC aswell, so its only a timed exclusive (typical Microsoft), so if you wanna get it real bad than just get the PC version. Just a suggestion don't know if you can run it. :)
andibandit  +   791d ago
But you would do right to get it on xbox since the developer said the xbox version will be superior

I'm still on the fence with both systems. But I am leaning towards the Xbox One.

For now I'll be rocking the current systems.

Watchdogs looks interesting but I will probably wait until both systems have a good number of games available.
Imalwaysright  +   792d ago
Im going to wait too and let the others beta test the hardware for me. I have huge backlog of games so I'm in no hurry.

Planetside 2. I'll just have to buy the console and then download that bad boy.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   792d ago
For PS4 It would be Driver Club, Killzone and infamous (when its released) and Watchdogs, Planetside 2 and DCUO.

For X1 it will have to be Ryse, KI, Project Spark Loco Cycle, Deadrising, Titanfall (when its released). Skipping Forza just because I don't like circuit racing. I like free Roam racing similar to TestDrive unlimited And Driver Club reminds me of that.

Destiny I might pick up for X1 though, not sure.

When I buy the consoles those are the games I want. those are my gaming goals. It'll be hard, but I'll try.

ZombieKiller  +   791d ago
I wasn't too keen on all the launch titles. As a matter of fact, the only ones I want are Battlefield 4 (seriously FUCK call of duty, it crashed my ps3 twice and won't TOUCH my ps4) and Killer Instinct (a fan of the original since childhood)...

Launch titles aren't anything special to me, its the potential the system has that I go for. I'm getting a ps4 at launch to get to know the system ins and outs. Until then I'll play my ps3. It has GTA V, Arkham Origins, and Splinter Cell all towards the launch date. I wish my ps4 was backwards compatible though. :(
Tapewurm  +   791d ago
Pre-Ordered PS4, extra controller, and the eye with the following games Killzone, DriveClub (full version...yeah it is different from the plus version)and Knack...picking up Infamous 2nd Son and Destiny when they drop as well.....

The only XboxOne title I am interested in at all is TitanFall and I hope it's exclusivity is limited.... if it never comes to PS4 I will probably grab it on PC.

-Because once people see that money really does grow on tress and you can plant one in your back yard, then everyone is going to want one. -And we just can't have everyone doing it- ..LoL

-Day One-
Battlefield 3, WatchDogs, Driveclub (maybe, going to check it out first on Plus) ACIV -Black Flag (maybe I need to see more not impressed yet, gameplay didn't look that impressive for a PS4 title..imo)

-Day One- Whenever they come out in -(2014)
Destiny, The Division, Uncharted 4, Infamous-Second Son, MGS-V The Phantom Pain
