No, no it's not. But 2014 looks promising.
ABeastNamedTariq  +   840d ago
The delay of DriveClub certainly dampened my opinion of the launch lineup. More so because they waited until a month before launch. But I think it's more on the devs and not necessarily Sony (someone told me that yesterday). I wanted a racer that isn't NFS. But hey, Killzone looks simply fantastic. Day one for me.

The launch lineup certainly isn't enough to deter me from getting the console..because they're only launch games. Not to mention I'll be playing DCUO, PS2, and Warframe, and Injustice in addition to Killzone.

Anyway, I agree, 2014 is going to be great. Infamous, The Order, and a whole slew of other games (Rime, Shadow of the Beast, probably ND's next game).

Dying to see more on Rime.
DEEBO  +   840d ago
You hit it right on the head.
with all the f2p,third party and indie games
with the remote play app and Killzone,sONY will be fine.
Bathyj  +   840d ago
Yeah, I'm not getting a PS4 because of any launch game, but because of an 18 year track record of delivering. You always need to be patient the first year or so of a new console.
Funantic1  +   840d ago
First year or so? No way...X1 day one.
wastedcells  +   840d ago
I'm still super pumped. After killzone on vita I'm really looking forward to what's next with the franchise. I think this game will be its break though. Black flag and BF4 are awesome as well. Plus nothing better then knowing more games are just around the corner. Also lots to play on PSN. I think it will be the best " first six months" in history as far as console launches go.

Not at all. Its pretty thin. I think its actually worse than PS3 which everyone said had no games but I was playing Resistance and Motorstorm.

Thank god for Killzone.
ape007  +   840d ago
Resistance : fall of man = amazing game
2paclives  +   840d ago
Actually motor storm was not available at launch, but you could import the stripped down japan version. Motor storm wasn't available until March. The ps3 launch was not very good. Ps4 you get Kz sf, knack some good third party games and some really cool psn games.
MysticStrummer  +   840d ago
Good enough for what? To not make me consider another console? Yes.

Having said that, Sony should have pushed to have more exclusives at launch, especially since PS4 is supposedly so easy to code for.
Bathyj  +   840d ago
That should be at least talking more about whats coming next year. A Naughty Dog, Media Molecule, Santa Monica announcement (or God forbid Last Guardian) a couple weeks before launch would have anticipation at fever pitch.

Still, the thought of getting an Xbox over a PS4 has never crossed my mind but I feel Sony are letting the slow burn go on a bit to long. They need to set this thing on fire.
ABeastNamedTariq  +   840d ago
I agree that they need to get the ball rolling again. I think they're going to do that at the VGAs, which is when Naughty Dog typically announces their games as of late.

Hopefully we see some gameplay of The Order (and Rime!).
Ketzicorn  +   840d ago
I think too many people are putting too much emphasis on launch games. I think X1 and Sony's launch lineup looks about the same neither looking super impressive but neither being awful either. Then I started thinking back and I could think of a couple decent launch exclusives but was having a hard time thinking of consoles with gobs of great exclusives at launch. This race is a long one so why does the media keep acting like it's won and lost at launch is beyond me.
Fluke_Skywalker  +   840d ago
For me, no. I cancelled my pre order purely based on this fact. I absolutely will get one but not until next spring or later, once there are a good few more games.
I know there is plenty of games at launch but the only one I'm interested in is Killzone, and as much as I love KZ it ain't a system seller.
MysticStrummer  +   840d ago
"as much as I love KZ it ain't a system seller."

All those people buying KZ:SF bundles might disagree, and the game also has many pre-orders on it's own.
ballsohard2013  +   840d ago
not feeling Ps4 lineup at all. Killzone is a decent game but i never really liked how they did multiplayer. Im getting Ps4 but that weak lineup bought me a few months. Ima do X1 at launch and do some multiplatform games like Bf4/nba 2k14 and maybe one more like forza or COD.

I seen some on this Thread talk about the next 12 months looks promising. What other titles are we looking for. I didnt see any major annoucements. Im really hoping for Uncharted, socom, MAG and some PS4 exclusives from previous generations
corvusmd  +   840d ago
It's up to opinion, so some will disagree with me, but in my opinion, No, no its not strong enough....this fact and the fact that it's network is severely out done by XBL is what has me holding off on a day one purchase of PS4....until they sting a lineup of exclusives that I actually care about together, I will used the money I planned to get a PS4 with on games for the XB1. Even after I get a PS4, I will still do all cross platform games that require an internet connection on XB1. Just my opinion.
MysticStrummer  +   840d ago
"I will used the money I planned to get a PS4 with on games for the XB1"

I've never seen any indication in your comments that you were ever planning on buying a PS4 first, but maybe I just don't remember.
