PS4 Exclusives To Get Excited About In 2014

Sony's new console has enjoyed one of the most successful launches ever. Having already shifted more than four million units, the company will have to keep plying the fledgling system with quality titles to carry the momentum well into 2014 and beyond, and exclusive games are key to this. Luckily, there's a number of promising AAA titles that you can only play on Sony's next-gen console in 2014. (PS4, Sony)

"in light of inevitable pressure from Sony, it's very likely we'll see Uncharted 4 before the year's out."

That would be amazing, but I doubt it. Much more likely to release mid to late 2015. Hope I'm wrong, but if I am I hope it's not because the game was rushed. I trust Naughty Dog though.
I think it'll come out in November. It's definitely a title that should release during holiday season. November 2015 is too far away. And with the decrease of development time it could certainly release this year.

Plus they teased it last year. So pre production is already done. Production is only 12 months tops.

"Plus they teased it last year. So pre production is already done. Production is only 12 months tops."

Indeed! Every game that gets teased (even though this was just some talking and a map...) gets released within 12 months. I know that I am enjoying my copy of The Last Guardian, Final Fantasy XIII Versus, Drive Club, Watch Dogs, Deep Down, inFAMOUS Second Son and The Phantom Pain. / S

Right now we don't know enough about "Uncharted" to speculate when it is going to release. I mean, we don't even have confirmation it will follow Drake, but people act like the game 100% will release in 2014. While it is entirely possible and I hope it does (provided it meets the usual ND standard), every sign points to this being an EARLY reveal, which are pretty common. Not like a game being revealed has much / any indication how far along they're in the process. For instance, Nintendo will announce some games that we know next to nothing about ( X ) and other games that release shortly after the announcement (3d World was announced at E3 if I recall and released 4 or so months later).
All those games you mentioned are special cases. The last gaurdian and ffxv were delayed because of technical issues and being moved to new hardware. Driveclub and infamous were teased less than 12 months ago and will be out by march. Just a 1 month difference. Deep down is an rpg and they take longer to develop. I dont know anything about watchdogs delay other than i saw it coming.

Uncharted will be 2015.

I'm still not convinced the Order will be 2014 either.
danny818  +   490d ago
I do think the order will be out this year. They showed a great demo last year in E3. You will see a playable demo this year at E3 and the game to be slated for this year
DigitalRaptor  +   490d ago
Why would The Order not be 2014?

It's been in production since around the time GOW: Ghost of Sparta went gold (late 2010). That's plenty of production time (almost 4 years) for a story-based third-person action/shooter/fantasy game.

Here are some reasons of WHY I believe that Uncharted 4 will be released the upcoming holiday season (November 2014):

For you guys who don't know. Naughty Dog was splitted into 2 teams for several years and I don't know if it is the case today since we don't know if TLoU will have a sequel nor if ND will start a new IP. The developement of TLoU began already in 2009 (link posted).

http://www.vg247.com/2011/1...

*The Last of Us-team developed TLoU after the release of Uncharted 2 (in 2009). With that logic/working progress I bet that the Uncharted-team began development of Uncharted 4 after Uncharted 3 was released on the PS3 in November 2011.

*Naughty Dog is a 1st-party-studio and got their hands on the PS4-devkit in early stages (Sony owns ND). They got their hands on the devkit probably during 2012 when the PS4-concept was in the final stages at Sony headquarters to be prepared for global announcement (February 20th, 2013).

*To tease a game almost 24 months wouldn't make any sense as someone here pointed out and it's extremely rare. Uncharted is a franchise that'll always be released for the holiday-season (around November every year as in previous installments).

*Note: if Uncharted 4 releases this November it will mean that the gap will be 3 years since the last installment. A 4-year gap feels unrealistic since we all know that Naughty Dog has developed AAA-games and released them with a 2-year gap constantly. With two teams they might release a game every year nowadays. Example:

2007 Uncharted
2009 Uncharted 2
2011 Uncharted 3 [splits into 2 teams]
2013 The Last of Us
2014 Uncharted 4
2015 The Last of Us 2 / New IP
2016 Uncharted 5
2017 The Last of Us 3 / New IP 2
2018 Uncharted 6

etcetera

Year 2-4 is when things start to get good.

2015 will be much better for XB1 + PS4.

PSP took 2-4 years to start getting a ton of games.

Same with 3DS.

Same with DS

as well with almost every other console or handheld in existence.

2014 will be a GREAT year for handhelds, and an ok year for consoles.

2015 is the year to look out for though.

360s best years where its first 3 years, where it's quality dominated Ps3 in exclusive content or early releases(Oblivion 1 year, Bioshock 1 year etc) and a much better online experience, and better multiplats until devs learned CELL. And they had their best games released during those years. Gears 1, Forza 2, Mass effect, fable 2, Halo 3 etc. The Xbox didn't get those fanboys for no reason

Ps3's best were 2009 - Still going, where total domination of the 360 started at about 2010 due to taking over exclusive content wise and the online becoming very close to the 360s, only rally missing chat. During 2008, Demons souls, Valkria Chronicles and MGS4 were release, before that there wasn't much, Resistance 1 was ok, Uncharted 1 was ok, Warhawk was very good etc, but none of them were masterpieces like Gears 1 and ME, and Ps3 didn't have its Racing sim out yet. Only a few exclusives and none of them reached the quality the later games did. MGS4 was even disappointing to me compared to the rest of the series. Regardless Demons souls was really the start of Ps3's leading for me. I imported. 2009 onwards was infamous 2(first got repetitive), Uncharted 2, Killzone 2 etc, and they took some exclusives from MS. Multiplats start being better on Ps3 etc

This time, it seems they are going to be equal for year 1. With someone of an equal amount of quality content coming out in Year 1. I wonder what will happen this time around. I don't expect Sony to stop going with what they've been doing since 2009. However MS almost completely ditched hardcore games for the 360 when Kinect was revealed. So i'm curious as to what they'll do this time around

I clock more hours on my 3DS than any other console or PC. I don't know if I could handle it if 2014 is better than 2013. Last year was a great one for 3DS games.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   490d ago
@Irish E3 2009 is when MS greater E3's. I remember when they specifically dropped the sales charts and everything none gaming for everything gaming. But of course revealing new features for 360 it had great pacing.

John Schhappert was specifically responsible for that. And showcased brand new games at the time and the early upbringing of Xbox 360 as the "All in one" console. https://www.youtube.com/wat... skip to 7:34

I missed this guy he knew how to do E3's until Don Mattrick hosted and after 2009 everything went downhill the next several years at MS E3. But luckily Sony was was picking up steam and all there showcases were finally seeing the light. 2010, 11, 12 they were on fire and winning E3's. And even won last years.

Though I think last years was a bit of a blunder considering DRM was the omega elephant in the room. I blame MS but I mostly blame DRM in generally it took over E3 and people lost track on what was really important. It went from a competition of games to a competition of who supports DRM. And rightfully so DRM had to be adressed.

E3 2014 I'm sure gamers will be back on track this time. Looking forward to MS, Sony and Nintendo this year. Btw Nintendo showing off its rumored system at this years Expo possibly? Naaah.

yea, later into 2015 things will really start to heat up. i'm fine with the ps4 right now though, unlike many. war thunder is fun, made it to day 45 on don't starve recently, and im still getting used to bf4 with a controller. its all good.
danny818  +   490d ago
Sony wont pressure ND trust me. They'll pressure them to have a playable demo or gameplay for E3. I predict that they'll have gameplay by E3 and have the goume out by june 2015. it was the same process with the last of us.
Eonjay  +   490d ago
"in light of inevitable pressure from Sony, it's very likely we'll see Uncharted 4 before the year's out."

Not really. Naughty Dog has bad it clear that Sony is very hands-off when it comes to input. All Sony does is pay the bills. Remember the Last of Us was delayed until it was ready.
jacksjus  +   490d ago
I read a report about two weeks before the PS4 launch with some ex-intern from ND that stated that she knew that UC4 would be announced at the Spike TV Sony release party because she saw the game and felt that it was well into development. Based on her comments becoming true I imagine the game will release this year.
NumOnePS3FanBoy  +   489d ago
I would definitely be ok with uncharted 4 releasing next year.
4logpc  +   490d ago
I highly doubt Sony would put pressure on Naughty Dog to a degree where a game is rushed.

Naughty Dog is their top developer.
snookiegamer  +   490d ago
I'm more interested in what Sony haven't announced. I'm totally excited for this years E3 and Gamescom :)))
JohnnyTower  +   490d ago
This years E3 will be massive. All eyes will be watching what Nintendo will do to turn around the Wii U, what Steam OS and the Steambox is all about, and all the new PS4 and Xbox releases. I will be watching with a vested interest, to be sure.
SKYVVLKR  +   490d ago
I'm gonna buy stock in the casket industry when U4 comes out because of how hard it's going to turn heads.
supraking951  +   490d ago
I hope Rime and Everyone's Gone to the Rapture come out in 2014. Both games debuted last year at Gamescom
pyramidshead  +   490d ago
Exciting times ahead. Want more info on The Order.
jegheist2014  +   490d ago
What i wish they make for ps4 is game like witcher 3 open world rpg story,Then bonus multiplayer online server side open world rpg thats coop with friends where missions just randomly change....You level up along with pvp maybe not mmo per say.

how to implement this correctly would be task in itself random bosses weekly or daily world just randomly changes on daily basis.
mo241  +   489d ago
Really curious as what the order turns out,
but I am afraid uncharted and the order both won't come out in 2014, maybe Q1-2 2015.
