Are you sick of hearing that the PS4 doesn't have any games? Nick D. is, and he explains why this is far from the truth in his latest Gamemoir post.
And its not always about AAA games , indie games are the start of big devs , and with the ps4 it shows full 1080p 60fps, with the games showing so much detail and clarity especially on larger tvs.
Dead Nation was only 30fps (just pointing that out). Indie games are nice sure, but let's look at the indie games we have gotten so far with PS+. Contrast was an ok game, cool ideas, but sort of lacking. Resogun was a fantastic brilliant launch game. Don't Starve while nice, is just a PC port. Dead Nation is just an enhanced version of a previous game (I still enjoyed it because I never played the PS3 version, but someone else may not be as excited if they already played it). Outlast was a great game, but again, another PC port. I beat it on my PC already, and while I am playing it again just to get some trophies, obviously it lost a lot of its wow-factor because I already know the story. Mercenary Kings is fun if you are into Metal Slug, Contra, etc, but again, wouldn't call it a deep, immersive experience or anything. Nothing that I couldn't get on my 3DS or Super Nintendo even for that matter. The First party games have been pretty solid and have shown the power of the PS4 nicely (Killzone and Infamous). However the 3rd party games are ones that aren't screaming out saying you have to own the next gen version as games like Call of Duty, BF4, AC4, Thief, Tomb Raider, Rayman, Lego Hobbit are all games you can get on previous gen systems and be just as content. So while yes it may have some games, are the games really that different yet aside from a better resolution? That being said, it's still early and I am sure we will see a bunch of great new games in the pipeline for the PS4 at E3, so it's not like this is the end of the world or anything.
So are saying games are clearer on larger tv's
i think he means the larger the tv, the more it matters that the resolution be high. (1080p)
yes thank you S2Killinit
WTF does resolution have to do with anything?
yes... because what I want is to pay 20 bucks for a game I payed 99 cents for on Steam over the holidays
I enjoy all the indie and free games I get. So people who say ps4 has no games your either butt hurt or just a fanboy.
The funny thing is that ps4's indies have higher average review ratings than most of xb1's AAA games.
'Tis true, 'tis true.
#Realfacts... indies are a vital part of gaming. They allow fledgling devs to build a brand and their portfolio. Not every game can be, or needs to be, a multimillion investment that when it fails causes companies to go belly up. I'm looking forward to Transistor myself, from the brilliant Bastion devs. I'm looking forward to games like No Man's Sky or Below as much as a game like Destiny or The Division. That is the beauty of variety in gaming. I cannot fathom why some people can't see that, and refuse to acknowledge the importance of the indie scene.
I'm not sick of hearing it. I just think it's funny.
It was funny last-gen. It's still funny now, but it still needs clarification. "Year of the PS3" was mocked, but it didn't even need that title (yet another stupid trait of gaming journalism) when it was getting a great, diverse lineup of exclusive games every year.
Agreed, but the people doing that stuff either already know they're wrong or they're just plain delusional. Either way, correct them all you want but they'll just keep doing it. It happens here everyday. It is good to clarify though, so an uninformed person doesn't see only the BS.
Good point, but someone needs to do it. It's annoying that videos like this from people like BlackbusterCritic need to be made to make points about the spreading of misinformation: https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Shouldn't the console speak for itself? :)
some people seem to forget that the ps4 actually has games, not sure why that is even if they are 3rd party and released on older consoles. i would rather play cleaner games on a machine that is new compared to a fossil.
Most ppl saying that ps4 has "no games" are ppl who don't even own one. (xbox fanboys)
i have a ps4 and so far the indie games haven't been very exciting to me the only amazing indie game was resogun in my opinion. i need more AAA games, been mostly using my ps4 for netflix and hulu
I'm in the same boat. I applaud indie devs making an attempt, but I have yet to see any indie game I actually wanted to play, on any platform.
I have had a ps4 since launch and I am still waiting for something to come out to excite me. I did not buy the console for indie games that could be run on my ps3 or ipad. I want some really great AAA games that I know couldn't be ran on my other devices. My ps4 has been sitting on my shelf for the past few months while my ps3 has been on every day.
well they have had more releases each month than the xbone. i don't think anyone is doubting that.
Ya don't say
He makes a solid argument about games as a whole. But as he points out, hardcore gamers already played all those games. PS4 has a fairly large exclusive games issue. Personally I only own Resogun, Ground Zeroes, Second Son, Killzone and to be honest I only really like Resogun and GZ. Second Son and Killzone aren't horrible but they are purchases that I do regret. These days I rarely even turn my PS4 on, there just isn't any content I want to play. Eventually that won't be a problem once they have a larger library of exclusives but until then it is definitely a real problem.
Its reality for everyone else but a problem for you. So the console has been out for less then 6 months and its a huge problem because you haven't found your go to game, get real. We haven't even experienced E3 2014 yet and there is already plenty of good games out, go find a new hobby. Why don't you give your PS4 away to someone who will appreciate it.
It's a content issue, like I said it will be fixed once they have more exclusives but as of now it is a problem. I am not hating, I am just pointing out the issue. If you didn't play those games on PC, that is great. But for those of us who are big Steam users that isn't the case. I realize it has only been six months, I am not giving up on it. I am just anxious to have a reason to use it.
i agree dude my ps4 hasnt had enough play time i feel like i should have just waited till more games were released
Funny how the PS4 has more games, but bone fanboys always say it has no games out of ignorance. The bone doesn't have no big exclusive releasing until later thus year. Next month ps4 has MLB and in June TLOU Remastered and possibly Driveclub.
They use it as a bragging point, but look at the last year alone on PS3 vs. 360. Some of Sony's biggest first and second party developers have still been making PS3 games, and MS doing crap all. I think that speaks volumes, and although PS4 has MORE games - it also has more diversity. I think we have our reason why MS has blown their load so early this gen, signing contracts with devs to release a bunch of games that needed more time in the oven. We all know Xbone was not meant to release until 2014, and we know the crunch they imposed on their launch lineup devs. Sony supposedly has an inferior lineup, so technically they should be the ones rushing out games just to compete, but nope... they give their developers time to make their games worthy of next-gen status, whilst promoting and providing games of all kinds. Common sense needs to come into play when trying to compare both lineups.
I just don't get the mindset of people. Its a psychological research candyland on this site. Last Gen.... 360 fanboys talked about all the great games from Xbox live arcade. Some great some good. Some bad. PS fanboys downplayed them. This Gen.... Its completely reversed. ........ Case study after case study.
it's all just one big duck measuring contest. Fanboys always want to have the upper hand and will use anything to downplay the console they don't like. I just don't understand why people wouldn't want to own all consoles if they could afford it. If all these so called gamers really enjoy playing games then I don't see why they wouldn't own all systems
It's lacking a bit in games. But in my opinion it has more then the X1. I have both systems. All my multiplats are for PS4. I have 8 games for my PS4 not including all the indies. I only have 4 for my X1 and those are just exclusives. Both systems need more games but it's early in both life cycles. We openly knew this when we got our systems at launch or soon after. We always knew it would be sporadic for w while. Why are people complaining about a lack of games now? But back on topic, the PS4 has plenty of games if you include indies. Just not all of them are aimed at our demographic. Can't blame either system for trying to include games for everyone.
I agree with this guy. I own the ps4, ps3, and 360, and will at some point possibly own the xbone depending on the exclusives they have for 2015. I don't understanding the complaining about no games, for either system. Launch wasn't that long ago. If you buy a console at launch aren't you aware that what is available to play will be limited somewhat? Having said that, I'm more than satisfied by what I've been offered on ps4. I'm tremendously looking forward to Child of Light, Transistor, and Watch_Dogs in the next month and a half (and possibly TLOU remastered), and I'm anticipating what will be revealed by both Sony and Microsoft at E3.
both systems are really new, games will come in time, im not worried.
Indeed it does. It baffles me that the "Playstation has no games" misconception has crossed over into this gen from last gen, when it simply isn't true. PS3's library of exclusives was much more versatile and unique than the 360's and, while Phil Spencer will finally bring something besides Halo and Gears to the Xbone, I believe that trend will continue throughout this generation. Sony just has too many quality studios.
there is no doubt that PS4 has plenty of games. but have you seen the prices !! PS3 and Xbox360 games were on average £40. now XboxOne and PS4 games are on average £60. last generation, within the first couple of months of release I had at least half a dozen games for each console. This generation I bought a PS4 first and have only 2 games. one of which I got with the machine. And it looks like it will be a while before I even consider buying an XboxOne.
PS4 has more indie games than AAA titles but they are games nonetheless.
For me it does not, at least for now Xbone has Forza and Titanfall (though not really exclusive but it is not on PS4). My PC already has the good indies like Don't Starve and Outlast. In good time I am sure it will have games that appeal to me, sadly though the MP games will not do much for me because once again all my friends on Xbox
