PS4 launch games, the titles that will blow us away

PlayStation Universe claims to have some inside knowledge about some of the launch games planned from PS4 as it selects 11 potential titles that may make the cut.

The story is too old to be commented.
Chaostar2259d ago

I can see Gran Turismo 6 being a PS4 launch title; with everything Sony has learned this gen about developer involvement in hardware design you can bet Polyphony Digital have a large influence. The delay in getting GT5 out the door this gen actually had a negative effect on how gamers and critics viewed the game itself, which is ridiculous but sadly true.

BrunoM2259d ago (Edited 2259d ago )

There's some titles that are a given for day one ..

FIFA nfl NHL normal sports games then there's always ridge racer lol

As for the List they have well wow lol gt6 I think is the hardest one to get .. They do like to take their time with GT dev ..

If they have a line up to rival vitas first 3 months not bad variety is the key ..

But hey of they get uncharted Gran turismo FIFA and a good war game il be on it day one and buy thouse 4 games I just said lol

Clever article, what a great way to say "WOW look whats coming"! and be able to make a bunch of crap up to get hits by saying "we must protect our sources by putting in red herrings so YOU decide whats going to be released"

Marketing ambiguity at it's worst.

That said of course I hope several are true. ;)

guitarded772259d ago

There's always a Ridge Racer on day 1 :D

The look on people face when GT6 comes on ps3 will be priceless.

All these xbox 720 and ps4 articles are so pointless.I dont know about microsoft but sony made it clear that ps3 has alot of time left.I think im missed the memo where ps4 and xbox 720 was announced to come out in 2013 /s.

roadkillers2259d ago

Dmarc: The look on your face when the Xbox 720 and PS4 are announced this year will be priceless ;)

thats_just_prime2259d ago

this is just a wishlist some throw together to get you to click on their crappy site. I can see NFS and AC those games come out yearly. So you'll probably see CoD and Madden and all the other crappy yearly games. Yearly games are not likely to be all that inpressive as most like they will just be upscaled version of the 360/ps3/wiiu versions. Probably get 1 major exclusive my money be on a KZ game

sikbeta2259d ago


It better be a launch title, I can't imagine what PD will do with more powerful HW, GT5 has evolved into such an awesome game over the updates, it's not perfect, but I'm sure if it wasn't for the HW restrictions, it really could be

irepbtown2259d ago

I wont be buying a PS4/Xbox 720 day one anyway.
Prices will be off the roof, no doubt about that.

Legion2259d ago


Yes, announced this year to come out in 2013. No 720 or PS4 this year.

MaxXAttaxX2258d ago

BUT I wouldn't be too surprised if it was an early PS4 game.

GT5's premium cars are next-gen ready.

Kurt Russell2258d ago

I still really like Ridge Racer :(

blackmamba7072259d ago (Edited 2259d ago )

whoever gets devkits first will spit their games out first,

which is Guerilla and Naughty

I wouldn't hold my breath on GT6, looking back at GT release history, never on launch

and you really need to have "4" in title ;)

Trey_4_life2258d ago

Every GT release has been a technological breakthrough, pushing the boundaries of racing simulations and showing how advanced the technology sony is that sony uses.

The PS4 will be the pinnacle of gaming, pushing the limits of what is capable, and finally cementing it's position as the worlds premier console and software maker.

andibandit2258d ago


If that is your definition of a
"Technological Breakthrough"
i suggest you spend more time in the real world.

Tonester9252259d ago

I wonder if we're going to keep the same PSN names and Intergrate our data over to the PS4

kcuthbertson2259d ago

God I sure hope so...

I'll be quite upset if we have to make new names.

venomcarnage892259d ago

Vita does it. It would be a massive step backwards if PS4 doesn't do it so all I will say is it should be obvious that it will happen, and they would really have to be retarded not to do it this way.

I hope for backwards compatibility, and the ability to play my PS3 games online on my PS4, with my friends who are still on their PS3's.

sikbeta2259d ago (Edited 2259d ago )

It is a must, so much investment in PSN games and all that, it'd be totally crap to start over again

Jamaicangmr2259d ago

"The delay in getting GT5 out the door this gen actually had a negative effect on how gamers and critics viewed the game itself"

Yeah almost every review spoke of the delay as if they reviewed the delay along with the game.

Dee_912259d ago (Edited 2259d ago )

You know ive been keeping up with gt5 so much prior to its release and after its release and I have yet to see an actual delay announced by PD ( besides the nov. 2 delay ).Just a bunch of sites guessing when it comes out then when it didnt come out claim it got delayed then the actual delay they just slapped a "AGAIN" at the end... Thats the sad part...

dragon822259d ago

That's the problem with this generation. If some random "journalist" wannabe with a website/blog writes something, it suddenly becomes fact among internet fanboys.

The FACT is that GT5 was not "delayed" until it missed it's "OFFICIAL" launch date of Nov. 2, 2010. It released on Nov. 24, 2010 which is a whopping 22 day delay.

showtimefolks2259d ago

GT6 will launch in fall 2013 because work has already started on gt6, and this time with engine being there already and PD knows what they have to improve i believe we will see Gt6 in fall 2013

on a side note why didn MS announce another forza title i mean forza 4 just came out, i guess now you see the power of GT as an IP

hellzsupernova2259d ago

new ip from GG
God of War
new ip from Media Molecule
The last of Us 2
New ip from uncharted team
New ip from Sony Japan
The Getaway
Sony Smash Bros 2
I also want backwards compatability with ps1, 2 and 3 if possible at least 1 and 2 though.

PLus a slew of third party exclusive games would be great.

venomcarnage892259d ago

Two Naughty Dog games at launch? Yeah.. not happening.

hellzsupernova2259d ago

@venom why not? why cant it happen WHO are you to say it CANNOT happen.

and so what if this is my PERSONAL list.

venomcarnage892258d ago

I didn't say it can't, just said that it won't.

Considering every comment on here said how this was just glorified wish list of an article, I didn't give the site a hit, so I didn't know if this was their list or yours.

Either way, with that in mind, two Naughty Dog games at launch would indeed be great, but even with two teams at ND, this would spread them a little thin considering it is a new system. I think we would get a better product if they didn't have to meet a simultaneous deadline for 2 games. Releasing a launch title, and then another 12 to 18 months later would ensure A. we aren't getting too much too soon, and B. We are getting the best quality ND can deliver. I for one am patient enough.

morkendo232259d ago (Edited 2259d ago )

Gran turismo 6 be a Excellent ps4 launch, hope it dont take 6 years to finish.
the NEW need for speed # 8 hope its not like "open world online universe" but more like back to its root
say like ps1 the need for speed, NFS 2,3,4

Exactly. Also, they used so much polygons to model the premium cars where Kaz said that they could reuse them with the next generation of Sony's console. I guess that he was hinting to us back then. I can believe that GT6 will be a PS4 launch title and i still have my G27 ready and waiting.........

Crazyglues2259d ago (Edited 2259d ago )

Well two things are clear from that list, One, it's clear PS4 is set to be released Nov 2013..

And if that's the case we will probably get an announcement at E3 2012

They also forgot some Games - One of the biggest one's which will indeed be on next-gen consoles is Battlefield 4 (BF4 Oct 2013) DICE has already stated how badly next-gen was needed for BF3 and that the game is a PS4 title on PS3...

So no question they will be stepping up their game hard for BF4 on PS4

But this also brings up a more important question - What is PS4 going to cost? -Because with all those games coming out in 2013 that means one thing..

Were all going to be going broke because with the cost of the system ($600 to $800) and most likely 5 must have games @ ($65 a pop) that's a +325 to the cost of the system.. don't even get me started on tax

people it's looking like you are going to need $1,125 or more for the end of 2013 just to be safe..


DeadlyFire2258d ago

I am hoping they wait until Frostbite 3.0 engine before they push Battlefield 4(2015) out the door. I am doubtful that engine will exist until at least 2013-2015. Battlefield 3 will last at least 4 years from launch date. Around the 2nd year I expect Bad Company 3 to appear(2013).

Korix2259d ago

So when a game keeps being postponed and worked on, it should not be criticized as such?
If a game is 10 years in the making, don't you think it's fair to expect more from it, than a game that has only been in development for 2 years?
With the amount of time they had on GT5, they left a lot to be desired. The 2.0 update should have been launch material, and it should have been out a year earlier - at least - then it might have gotten more positive feedback.
So much time was spent on it, and so little content was found in the game. Not standard cars, but actual racing content - race events, tracks, premium cars (better selection), etc. Who was the idiot that decided the Veyron didn't need a premium model, but instead needed to handle like a brick?

Chaostar2259d ago

"So when a game keeps being postponed and worked on, it should not be criticized as such?"

This is the problem right here, according to you a delay to improve a game should be viewed as a criticism and not a good thing. I'd prefer games to be judged on their comparative quality in their respective genres and not by the length of time from announcement to release.

Korix2259d ago (Edited 2259d ago )

I never said that delays are bad in themselves.
I said that if a game is delayed, it should be more thoroughly critiqued. This does not by itself mean the game should loose points in the final review, but simply be reviewed more in-depth. If the game is delayed, then surely there is more to look after - after all, they did the delay for a reason, some part of the game must have been worked on more.
Honestly, don't you think it's fair to make more in-depth reviews of games that has been long in development, than games with short development times? If not, you'd review XBLA and PSN games by the same standards as hugely publicized games such as COD, GT5, Uncharted, etc.
I'm not saying delays are bad (if they make the game better, then great!) but when a game is continually delayed (officially or not) it better make the extra wait worth it. And as far as I'm concerned, GT5 did not deliver. It kept being worked on forever, and when it finally came out, so much was left to be desired.
I have never owned an xbox, but seeing how Forza is developed makes me wish PD would learn something from Turn 10.
The driving itself in GT5 is where its strength lies. I love it. But as a game, feature wise, so much has been left out.
You couldn't even rewind or fast forward replays until 2.0, how basic is that?
You say that games should be reviewed on their comparative quality. Longer development, bigger budget - higher expectations, more critique. How is that unfair to the game and its developer?

Chaostar2258d ago

Ah I see the misunderstanding here, the problem lies not in whether or not you should raise your expectations upon hearing of improvements to a game but in how much you raise those expectations.

My point was that people had unrealistic expectations after foolishly believing media reports of 'massive delays' despite a release date never being announced. This showed in almost every review where the development time was used in negative light to elicit a false sense of disappointment.

I don't how you came to the conclusion that I meant 'review all games the same', including PSN XBL games. I just think that development time should not be used as a negative review factor.

Also, I never questioned the criticisms you keep mentioning, they are a legitimate part of your and/or any reviewers opinion of the actual game.

DeadlyFire2258d ago

I doubt GT 6 will be available day one, but I do suspect them to be making a title for PS4. I think they will shorten development time a little.

I laugh at the thought of next gen. Need for Speed. The only title in the franchise that does them well is Hot Pursuit. Well from my viewpoint. Yet they keep trying to break away from it by making something new every year. 2-3 year development cycle = solid game. 4-6+ years(unless MMO) = overworked and overdone game. Was probably great at some point, but then changed along the way.

No modern shooter on the list,makes it incomplete.

The Meerkat2259d ago

Maybe if we are lucky Modern Shooters will be out of fashion next gen.
IMO they suck the soul from the games industry.

DigitalRaptor2259d ago (Edited 2259d ago )

I'd be glad honestly if there were no "modern shooter" so to speak.

I'm actually sick of the obsession this gen has brought to the shooter category. I'm not knocking the great ones (cause there have been plenty over the years and the best ones aren't even the most popular), but the generic modern shooter like Call of Duty is sucking the life out of an industry where creativity used to be much more valued and a much more popular option.

I'll be buying the first person shooters with dynamic gameplay, variety, creativity and substance in every aspect, such as BioShock Infinite and Far Cry 3. I don't care if it has no multiplayer since I'm above that "requirement".

Or they could solve everything and bring back TimeSplitters!

coolasj2259d ago

I'd rather the PS2 obsession with Platformers.
Or the PS1 obsession with RPGs.
When the gaming industry finds a new series they just put out every year, I hope it's not an FPS.

BrunoM2259d ago (Edited 2259d ago )

I agree with Meerkat lol

And I do AGREE 110% with DigitalRaptor

But don't worry from what we know and see tere will be a Modern warfare game lol COD is now a game like EAs sport games I yearly game so we will get a MW game or a black ops ..

torchic2259d ago

Crysis 3 & inFamous 3 would make me jump to PS4 day one.

THC CELL2259d ago

i want to see less patches next gen only major

dredgewalker2259d ago

Sadly it will actually get worse as the games get more complex with each generation.

GameBadger2259d ago

I concur most wholeheartedly.

monkey nuts2259d ago

Easyfix. Don't connect your console/s of choice to the network. . . . .
