Wow, wait, what?
TrendyGamers  +   711d ago
I guess they were already doing it on Vita so figured they'd do it on PS4 as well.
gaffyh  +   711d ago
PS+ gets more and more worth it, Resogun, DriveClub for free, as well as the Binding of Isaac.

Also very surprised about Minecraft coming to PS4, though it was exclusive?

it was a timed exclusive and notch said he wanted it on ps4 once it the time ran out
MWong  +   711d ago
I need to pace myself, the PS4 is trying to break my wallet.

Battlefield 4
PlanetSide 2
KillZone FS
Watch Dogs
Assassins Creed 4
Blacklight R
War Thunder
COD Ghost

I thought CounterSpy was be on; PS3, PSN & Vita. At least that's what was in the trailer.
ShwankyShpanky  +   711d ago
MWong: On the PS+ side (yuk), least four of those are free.
sengoku  +   711d ago
Great List!!
enough to start out with.
Those free to play titles will always come in handy as December is looking to become an expensive month.

Great work Sony.
Now to extend my Ps Plus and get the Xtra 3monts free.

FunkMacNasty  +   710d ago
That's one of the most decent concole launch line-ups I can remember! I remember when the current gen launched in '05-'06 each console had like 5-10 games during it's first several months.. and I think it was the same when the ps2 released also.

Between BF4, Watch Dogs, and Drive Club, I will have my work cut out for me!

Any word on the ps4 official release date in N. America??

"Currently, there are over 180 PlayStation 4 games in development from both first-party and third-party studios, with the number of developers on PS4 since June 2013 jumping from 500 to 620."

Hot dam that's a lot of games
SillyYou  +   711d ago
And a lot of money that exits my wallet.
showtimefolks  +   711d ago
so many free to play games, this gen both consoles come with some sort of game right out of the box

i will definitely try some free to play games

DC universe is the one i want to try on ps4
Rimeskeem  +   711d ago
Warthunder looks awesome
andibandit  +   710d ago
yeah warthunder does look promising.
im hoping to see some gameplay soon
ChipdiddyChip  +   711d ago
Hahahaha! Flower!
ShwankyShpanky  +   711d ago
If it's free, or if you get it free if you purchased the original, I'd definitely give it another run through.
Muffins1223  +   710d ago
Thats weird i thought there would be more digital titles at launch :|
ABeastNamedTariq  +   711d ago
Nice. Lots to look forward to. But yeah, something's strange. Flower?
Wedge19  +   711d ago
These are "Launch Window" correct? So not necessarily available to me on release day?
TrendyGamers  +   711d ago
This year's launch titles, so while some may miss launch day, it'll be only by a couple weeks at most.
sdozzo  +   711d ago
Thought launch window was a few months?
thekhurg  +   711d ago

The article states that all of the games listed will be out prior to the end of 2013 - so it's about a six week launch window that's being discussed.
LordMe  +   711d ago
It is a window release, but all of them are released before December ends. Most of, if not all of the disk based seem to be launch titles. While download games will be a little spread out.
Deadpoolio  +   711d ago
NO these are confirmed LAUNCH titles not launch window
1Victor  +   710d ago
If I Remember Correctly Launch Window Is The First Month Or Two After Consoles Release.
kariyanine  +   710d ago
Unless you are Nintendo and then it runs a six month course. :)
metalgod88  +   711d ago
Anyone know if N++ is coming to ps3 or vita as well?
HammadTheBeast  +   711d ago
So far only confirmed for PS4. I don't see why they won't do a vita version.
dcj0524  +   711d ago
It was uploaded by the official psvita trsiler so I assume so.
ShwankyShpanky  +   711d ago
All PS4 titles have Vita versions. ;)

metalgod88  +   710d ago
Awesome, thank you guys. I really loved N+ and one of the only reasons I even have an xbox lol.

Also, I didn't know that all ps4 games had a vita version. I mean, it makes sense, but I never really thought about it lol. Thanks for that info too! Man, I can't wait for the ps4 to be released already. Finally, there's a date lol
JessiePinkmanYo  +   710d ago
Metalgod-What Shwanky was saying, is that Sony stated the Vita will be like having a PS4 in your pocket, and almost every game that you can play on PS4 can be played on the Vita as well. Someone correct me if I'm misinformed :-)
grassyknoll  +   711d ago
A Vita version is coming at a "later date" apparently. I imagine 3 to 6 months after.
andreasx  +   711d ago
I love the fact that I dont have to buy a game at launch, all the free to plays would keep me busy for a long time! Although i plan to buy kz SF and bf4 at launch :)
TheFreak  +   711d ago
I have preordered those two games with my ps4. Happy times!
lento  +   711d ago
Same here! Those games plus drive club with the ps plus will keep me busy.
Game4life  +   711d ago
I see a total of 8 games in the launch i will get with certainy. That alone is insane.

driveclub (planning on upgrading to full version)
call of duty
watch dogs
lego super heroes
pool nation extreme.

TrendyGamers  +   711d ago
Only about $400 worth of games there!
Game4life  +   711d ago
yeah but im only getting like 3 or 4 launch week. the rest will be spread out for when I need new games to play.

and maybe call of duty
nosferatuzodd  +   711d ago
indeed lol
Starbucks_Fan  +   711d ago
COD but no BF4?

Good list though :p
Game4life  +   711d ago
I might give bf4 a go but i've never been a big bf person. That's just me though. I like cod every once i\n a while but it can get repetitive. I think I'm gonna wait and see more of the maps first on boths titles. I did really like black ops 2 maps though
The_Sneauxman  +   711d ago
@Game4life... Finally someone who justifies why they don't like BF. I love Battlefield and I always see those that don't like BF because, "COD 1080 no scope PWNZ NOOBZ". At least your opinion is societal.
ZBlacktt  +   711d ago
Hell, No AC4 BF either... strong title left out.
Game4life  +   711d ago
more than anything, If i had to pick a shooter, regardless of console for multiplayer, it would be like halo(3) . I feel its mechanics were the best. Though when you look at something like cod, it has some nice mechanics but with things like quick scoping and noob tubes among other things, the game can easily become broken 9causing spawn issues and such). Now I don't know alot about bf mechanics to say how it plays since i havent played much of bf. But i do see where people come from saying cod is broken or people choose cod because of those things.

i am just glad not to be made out to be a cod fanboy or something.

Edit: I need to catch up on the series before i play 4. I never got past brotherhood. it just didnt feel like a good ac game. At least compared to ac2. I wanna get ac3 though but i have too much to play right now

TheLEGENDofTydo  +   711d ago
@Game4life I am glad you liked the Black Ops 2 Maps but in my opinion they are worse than any other Call of Duty. Infinity Ward makes good maps not Treyarch. I get spawned killed and killed from behind on every Black Ops 2 map. They have horrible mechanics. Like Hijacked, i don't know how anyone can like that when its just long hallways to get lucky and run down and no get shot. I do not know if Treyarch knows what corners are. I am sorry i am ranting but in my opinion they suck so bad (except DLC maps, they are good)

I think just KZ:SF and freebies will keep me busy for a while.

I like eye candy.

And I'll still have my PS+ backlog.

What about BF4?
novcze  +   710d ago
What about it, I see it on the list along with AC4:BF
_FantasmA_  +   711d ago
I don't think I can just take one day off at work. Killzone alone and Watchdogs warrant a whole week off, but with Driveclub, and all those other Plus games I may need to just quit my job or claim that I'm the first pregnant man and need paternity leave.
nosferatuzodd  +   711d ago
wow like he said 400 worth of games
Bhuahahaha  +   711d ago
lol thats a lot of titles.
do you do other thing besides gaming
cell989  +   710d ago
Ill be getting BF4, KZ, Knack, and Watch Dogs, that should be enough play time for the rest of the year

Not to mention the F2P MMOs you can get free right off the bat with no online pay needed

Honestly, there are so many games I want from those 33, that I have no idea how I'm going to afford/play all of them! I will figure something out though.

33 title to choose from this year alone, sweet
MasterCornholio  +   711d ago
And i thought people were saying that the PS4s line up was horrible.


Looks pretty good to me.
Drekken  +   711d ago
When MS pays you... you say what they want you to say.

^Really the only thing that makes sense when it comes to the people saying PS4 has no games. It has too many games at launch.
BattleTorn  +   711d ago
Ya, you gotta be paid to like Microsoft, right? /s

The casuals typically want 'mature/violent' action games. (so compare the lists without the sports, and driving titles)

Watch Dogs, AC:BF, Call of Duty, and Battlefield are on both systems.

Besides those, the choice (for casuals) is between Killzone: ShadowFall versus Dead Rising 3 & Ryse:SoR. (possibly Killer Instict as well)

For whatever reason, if someone does not like Killzone - it would appear that PS4 has no 'mature'-action titles for launch. If someone didn't fancy Dead Rising or Ryse - they might still have interest in the other.

and you are saying there is no interest or may fancy other games in the PS4 list?

So Planet side 2, warframe, Helldiver, war thunder ,Blacklight, shadow of the Beast,Guns of Icarus online. etc.
GameCents  +   711d ago
No, it isn't horrible, just inferior.
XabiDaChosenOne  +   711d ago
PS4 launch titles=33
Xbox launch titles=23
Thanks for playing!
humbleopinion  +   710d ago
From retail perspective it's indeed inferior. Wished Infamous wasn't postponed to 2014, since it seems like a must have game and a great open world offering to counter Dead Rising 3.

Don't know about digital though, since Sony advertizes "launch window" games with no specific dates for these games, while Microsoft specifically mentioned games available on the first day - but then they didn't even mention what day that would be. Dust still needs time to settle.

Edit: at the same time I have to say both consoles show up much better launch titles variety then their predecessors last gen, not to mention the offerings from Nintendo.

I already paid most of my PS4 and all those games seems so nice. I'll have to sacrifice some of them at first for obvious budget reasons.

TrendyGamers  +   711d ago
brianace  +   711d ago
Picking up Knack and Watch Dogs at launch. That should hold me over till Second Son is out. Plus, I have a disgraceful PS3 backlog that needs to be addressed.
cellur111  +   711d ago
I love how minecraft is coming to ps4, i thought it was exclusive to xbox.
JBSleek  +   711d ago
Uh Minecraft has been out for years on PC. It was never exclusive maybe to consoles but it was on mobile as well.

Also at this point who hasn't played Minecraft that actually wants to play it you don't need any sort of demanding PC to play it.
Deadpoolio  +   711d ago
No Microsoft did try to claim it was exclusive to the One80...But then again they also tried to claim MGS5 was an xbox exclusive and Destiny....They love to claim things are exclusive all the time...Twitch was something else they claimed was exclusive to the One80
TheLEGENDofTydo  +   711d ago
It doesn't need a great PC but you need a good one. It may be all squares but it does use a good bit of my 8GB's of ram when i am on a server

Wow, across digital and retail MS had 25 games launching. There's a Ton of games...

By comparison the PS3 launched with 21 across retail and digital with The Xbox 360 at 22 and the Wii at 27... Pretty impressive, still I wished we got more Big budget titles over the small scale indie stuff. Only 2 big budget games announced amidst a sea of indie games on PS4, I honestly thought we would finally hear about Bioshock Vita. Borderlands 2 is a great addition
chazjamie  +   711d ago
these announcements were really anti climatic. it kind of pales in comparison to the x1 line up.Indie is a cool response when debating about how liberal your console is and how it benefits the gaming world. but who the fuck wants to play that shit.

oh the release date was cool, but whats accompanying it, is just meh. (thanks sony, good boy, you win by default by announcing the release date)

it's an okay launch line-up but lucky for me PS4 isn't coming to my country til next year so inFamous Second Son & Destiny will be out by then :) and even better, Battlefield 4 will be fully patched/nerfed
