So far it is very disappointing. It will get better though, PS3 started out really weak too and ended strong.

georgeenoob1178d ago (Edited 1178d ago )

It is definitely better to wait on PS4, maybe one or two years once the exclusives come out.

I just recently bought a PS3 to experience Uncharted and GOWIII (PSN Georgeenoob), and plan on doing the same with PS4 4-5 years down the road for Uncharted 4.

With X1 there're plenty of games straight out of launch along with a promising fall 2014 and 2015, so buying one now especially after the price cut is very justified.

thereapersson1178d ago

Yeah, I'll be buying an XOne to experience all it has to offer, but I don't see enough compelling software besides Sunset Overdrive and a few other far off titles. I'll probably pick a One up in a couple years when the price hopefully is dropped again to match the lower powered hardware when compared to the PS4.


Whenever i see your name i disagree with your comment immediately, it's either trolling or nonsense.


Judging ANY console this early is a mistake, wait until its in second year when more games and exclusives start rolling.
As for the moment im enjoying my PS4 and im sure waiting for the best to come.

BattleAxe1178d ago (Edited 1178d ago )

There hasn't been anything to come out since launch that I feel is a 'must buy'. I'm a fan of the Killzone series and the Infamous series, but I just couldn't get excited for either of those games. Personally, I haven't bought into the hype for The Order 1886. It looks ok so far, but I'm just not getting the same feeling of excitement as I did for the Uncharted games, GOW3 or The Last of Us.

When Uncharted comes out, that's when things will start to get good. If Sony makes Heavenly Sword 2 or a high quality Syphon Filter game, then thats when they will have some 'must have' games. I'd love to see Guerrilla Games take on the Resistance series, and a God of War game on the size and scale of GOW3 would be awesome.

KinjoTakemura1178d ago

Georgenoob keeps talking about exclusives as if any of the "so called" xbox one exclusives are actually worth mentioning. Most of the exclusives on the xbox one are average to mediocre. Some aren't even worth mentioning. Name one Xbox One exclusive THAT IS ON SALE RIGHT NOW that even comes close to competing with Infamous Second Son.
note: "Titanfall is not exclusive to Xbox One"

dodo1011178d ago (Edited 1178d ago )

What nice, you have a PSN account with no games played.
Nice trolling

+bubble for funny

Thanks for the laughs, I needed that after another depressing episode of Game of Thrones

Locknuts1178d ago

I'm in the same boat. Sold my 360 last year and bought a PS3 for TLOU.

sic_chops1178d ago

@george there are more ps4 games out than x1. More announced too. Why you always waste your one little bubble by trolling? Because your scared.

I have to ask - what could be so disappointing about it, if the PS3 (and most PlayStation/console launches) was just as tame? Virtually no one buys a launch machine expecting the best it will offer, rather, they pick it up to experience the latest technology and software to showcase said work.

In this regard, the PS4 is no different than most consoles are their births. It just so happens that, believe it or not, with all of the downloadable/Indie titles, in addition to retail copy, the PS4 had the biggest launch of this gen (and perhaps of any).

I'm not saying one CAN'T be disappointed with the current line-up, but given anyone who bought one at launch should have known what would be what 7 months after the thing released, there shouldn't be any extreme "letdowns". As mentioned, the software will be there, ESPECIALLY given the track record of the PlayStation brand.

insomnium21178d ago

Agreed 100%. Anyone dissapointed is an idiot. What did they expect really?

I will wait this gen. No money and even less time to play. It's taken me months to put 80 hours into Dark Souls 1 on my PS3 (still a work in progress as I just started NG+) and my backlog is long as all hell. I was the first in line for PS3 and I have no hurry to change my main console atm. My PS3 is giving me my money's worth ten fold. My console of choise is and will always be Playstation (unless Sony screws up badly) so PS4 it is when the time comes.

AndrewLB1178d ago

insomnium2- My account was suspended on this site for saying EXACTLY the same thing you did, but it was referring to PS4 fanboys. Lets see if you get the same treatment as me.

MeLoveRamen1178d ago

As much as i love my ps4 i do have to agree with you incendy, disappointed isn't the word i would use, more on the lines of not very interesting yet. I knew going into buying a console day 1 that there would be a very limited selection of games but i bought one anyways soley off the hype of next gen. Had killzone and infamous and really did enjoy them but finished infamous in a week and killzone in 3 months.

But now is about the time that the AAA games start to come out with watchdogs, ufc, and evil within and last of us set in summer. So the drought has ended but not really interested in anything except batman, driveclub, destiny and evolve so i have a little longer to wait to play some games that i am interested in.

Glad i just bought a wii u with mario kart and some other games to hold me over until fall but once fall hits the ps4 is gonna be a monster of a console.

starchild1178d ago

Things generally always start of slow with every console. As someone who owns a gaming PC and a PS4 I can't say that I have played a lot of games on my PS4 so far, but I bought it knowing that would be the case.

Still, I've enjoyed Infamous Second Son and Killzone Shadow Fall (the first more than the second) and a couple other smaller games and I think the future looks bright. I can't wait for The Last of Us remastered, The Order 1886 and Uncharted 4.

kratoz12091178d ago

Seriously there is already heaps of games to play.
FF14 is addictive
War Thunder is a great F2P game
Infamous second son was awesome

TheMapleNerd1178d ago

I love all these people hating on other people, just because they want to wait.. How old are you?
Of course it is normal to wait 1-2 years to buy a console if you have no friends on it. I have 1 friend that have a Ps4, the rest is waiting.. as so am i...

Magicite1178d ago

Ive a feeling PS4 is on a way to become greatest console so far.

Personally I am waiting for JRPGs and thats main reason why I always have loved Playstation, although Im mainly playing on PC.

inFamous Second Son
Final Fantasy XIV
The Last of Us
PlanetSide 2
Guilty Gear Xrd
Samurai Warriors 4


I'd say that'd be a pretty decent line up for a first year list.
Now I'll admit my PS4 has been collecting dust lately but that's because I'm holding off on buying anything till I get a Wii U. However it's nice to know that by years end, should I decide to squander my savings ,I'll have a nice range of exclusives and multi plats to choose from on my ps4.So yh I'd say it's doing aight.

Zero-One1178d ago

In comparison to PS3's start, the PS4's growing pains look like nothing in comparison. Witch means it's only gonna be better from here on out.

AndrewLB1178d ago

Why are you listing Planetside 2 and Final Fantasy XIV as PS4 exclusives. Both of those games have been out on PC for years now. Also, DriveClub, TLOU, Guilty Gear Xrd, and Samurai Warriors 4 aren't even released yet.

So basically your list has:

Count them... 4 games, not the 10 you claim.

kratoz12091178d ago

Yet everyone one mentions Titanfall is an xbox exclusive?

SoulSercher6201178d ago

He was making a list of PS4 GAMES, not just exclusives

LordMaim1178d ago (Edited 1178d ago )

Then I guess no one should mention Xbox One exclusives like:

Gears of War
Halo 5
Sunset Overdrive
Quantum Break
Forza 6
Ryse 2

I've seen Xbox One advocates layer on these titles on lists like these all the time. Since half of them are 2015 and the other half are unannounced potential games for some point in the future, it only seems fair that they come off the lists as well if we're pruning.

Whereas the PS4 games that you removed are at least coming out this year, among others. Put the exclusives that are out this year with the multiplatform games that are already out (and perform better on the PS4), and Georgenoob's advice seems somewhat calculated.

Almost as though he had an agenda of some sort.

GribbleGrunger1178d ago (Edited 1178d ago )

Will you people stop pretending that multiplatform games don't exist and shouldn't be counted as games to play on the PS4. The PS4 has more Indies, more exclusive, more FTP games and better multiplatform. Live with it.

It's the XB1 that has fewer games to play.

After E3 the critics will stfu. Uncharted 4 alone will make ppl believe. Mark my words.

Jihaad_cpt1178d ago

At the risk of sounding like a fan boy... UNCHARTED 4 will destroy the competition!

lifeisgamesok1179d ago

IMHO no, only because of the unimpressive game lineup so far

The_Infected1179d ago

So says Mr. Xbox.
