Ray Porreca of Entertainment Buddha discusses the best PlayStation 4 exclusive games set to release in 2014's second half.
kinda bad when you have to include a DLC as one of your top 4 exclusives.. That being said, I will definitely want to explore the story of Fetch more. And do we have a confirmed 2014 release date for Deep Down yet? I don't want to get my hopes up only to see it slip to 2015.
Yeah, I have to agree. It's sort of frustrating to think that what is essentially DLC is one of the best looking exclusives, but the fact that it is more of your traditional stand-alone expansions promises that there will be plenty of Fetch to explore.
First Light is a stand-alone game as well as it is DLC for Second Son. You don't need Second Son to play First Light.
I came here to ask about Deep Down... Where is a 2014 confirmation? Also - There are plenty of games coming to the PS4 by the end of the year. I will be so busy with Destiny for months, I really don't care what else is releasing. That being said - 2015 is starting strong and it doesn't look like it will let up.
The beta is to come out soon, this summer. Either late this month or August.
DLC counted as an exclusive with a port and an unconfirmed f2p title....and a cross gen LBP shoehorned into this year. Hell, you can't even count LBP as it's on multiple platforms. Yeah I'm looking forward to inFamous dlc but wow this lineup for Sony is pathetic. 2014 PS4 < 2007 PS3 and that's just downright awful. Thank god for this year's multiplats and early 2015...
Unlike 2007, Sony released some established franchises instead of multiple unknown IPs.
Well they didn't even add LBP3, roflmao....
It isn't exclusive to the PS4, it is cross-gen.
There isn't even a western release guaranteed, much less a release date.
Some of the trailers released last year for Deep Down had English voices throughout. I'd say it's coming West, just don't know when.
The developers have specifically stated they can only guarantee Japan will get a release and have not decided if anyone else will get the game. I don't ASSume anything.
If it's as well received as the Japanese press apparently expect, do you really think they won't whack it up on PSN in the West as another PS4 exclusive, when it already has localised vocals?! C'mon - it's a safe assumption. One that leaves nobody looking like an ass...
I thought it was until they said they couldn't guarantee it. I want to believe it I just don't want to get my hopes up when weirder things have happened then that.
It's a standalone game, not DLC, unless you count all downloadable games as DLC.
I didn't realize that it was a standalone game, yeah I guess we can compare it to something like Alan Wake: American Nightmare then.
Standalone DLC should count as its own game, don't you think? On that note, I can't seem to recall if you felt the same about the XB1 exclusive list that was posted on here a week or so ago? As for the complaints about LBP 3 et al, weren't people defending Forza Horizon 2 and Halo as still counting as exclusives? Do they count for one company and not for others? Is that's why it's okay to slam indies in PS4 while praising Titanfall and Sunset Overdrive? I'm confused.
the Halo collection isn't exclusive? You can get the Halo collection on another platform other than the Xbox One? exactly.
Deep down will probably release in Japan only thus year, but we are still getting natural docturne, guilty gear xrd and planetside 2
There's a bunch of million sellers right there.. :P Sorry, those games aren't my cup of tea. But to each their own.
^Neon, if you think less than a million PS4 owners will download Planetside 2, you're in for a big surprise...
guilty gear xrd and planetside 2 are not PS4 exclusives. Planetside 2 is a PC game and Guilty Gear XRD is an arcade game as well as on PS3.
Why would you not count Lbp3? I'm more excited for that then any game this year (massive create mode fan). Standalone dlc, basically means $15 psn game.. f2p don't count? Do you people only travel when your driver comes and picks you up in your limo. Like why be so stuck up. If a game is good I don't care how the hell it comes to me, I'll play the damn thing.
True, I'm glad I have a PS4 in the long run, but the rest of 2014 is pretty dead of excitement for PS4. IMO they would have been better not doing this list at all, it almost has the opposite effect of it's intention. This is probably the same reason Sony themselves are pushing a multiplat game with extra DLC the hardest out of all their games left this year. Realistically, I'll probably keep my PS4 in it's box till Feb, then bust it back out for Order. Till then all the heavy lifting will be on X1 and Wii U. There just simply isn't anything exciting to me on PS4 for a while, Order, Bloodbourne, No Man's Sky and Uncharted 4 are the closest thing to it...one of those isn't even technically exclusive, and two of them I'm excited for, but if I didn't have a PS4 I wouldn't miss them at all.
Looking rough for exclusives. I guess LBP 3 could've been on this list too. Out of the ones listed though I'm leaning towards the game I've already played on the PS3.
I wish they would sneak some stealth exclusive releases in there just to help this year. There are a lot of smaller title releases that are to come that I am excited for.
It's hard to believe it's been almost a year since the consoles have released. It isn't as exciting as it was last gen.
To be fair, it takes a while for new consoles to make the transition, so the first year is always slow. But Sony's list of fall exclusives is a little weaker than you would expect, I expected at least one game on the level of infamous or so.
Gears, cod 2 and resistance beg to differ... This gen has been mediocre at best.
Not a compelling argument. That is three games spread across 2 systems. There are more than 3 compelling exclusives spread across the PS4 and Xbox One at the moment, not to mention by the year's end.
There is a wiki page for PS3 games with release dates and by this time into that product cycle, PS3 had FAR more games.
a free ps+ game , dlc , a remaster and a F2P game , who wrote this ms , its bleak but not quite that bleak
Drive Club has a cut down PS plus version only.
WTF is this "free PS+ game" drivel? Do people think they are contructing some kind of clever slight when they say that, or do they simply not realise DRIVECLUB is getting a full retail release alongside the stripped down PS+ edition? --- Also I don't know how people can consider F2P as a detrimental category as far as PLANETSIDE 2 is concerned. It's already established as an excellent large-scale MMOFPS, and far larger and more ambitious than any FPS currently on any next-gen console.
There should be at least 5 more titles on the list
I think way too much is being made of exclusives these days. The bottom line is there is a lot of great games coming out, so what if it's on another platform. A great game is a great game. Mass Effect 3 was one of the best games ever made in my opinion and was on multiple platforms, does that make it any less special? Two games I'm looking forward to this year is Destiny and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Their not exclusive to any console and will still be a blast to play no matter what platform you game on.
Exclusives are a huge deal. They strongly factor into which console someone will purchase. You hear people saying they will buy a PS4 for Naughty Dog games and people buying an Xbox for Halo.
This generation, I am thinking that the exclusives (what are we talking about, really? 4-5 games for each platform?) are going to be less influential. I think most gamers are going to be like KakashiHotake here and play mostly multiplatform games...and we know which console plays those better.
True exclusives are dying due to balooning dev cost's not to mention in Microsoft's case they traditionally prefer to buy 3rd party exclusives instead of investing in first party studios and now that they're no longer the market leader they no longer get to dictate terms and market behavior or have the luxury of the larger install base they used to sway publishers to their corner. Exclusive DLC and the like will be the norm this gen. Especially since MS won't be in the position to buy their way out of it like they did last gen. And you're right exclusives sell consoles and Sony has the bigger catalog of exclusives than MS does and that helps Sony support their consoles for the lifetime of their consoles which is something MS haven't done ever. Easy to see why Playstation is the stronger brand worldwide.
Not much. I mean, inFamous DLC is cool, but the Last of Us is already on PS3, and Deep Down is currently slated for japan release this year, they have said nothing about a western launch.
I enjoyed InFamous, looking forward to TLoU since I haven't played it before but overall the list is pretty weak. Next year though is looking a lot better for PS4.
Where's LBP on this list?
Thought that would have been a no-brainer
I think it's because it's also on Ps3
So is The Last of Us.
So excited for the Infamous DLC, I loved Second Son, but I'm curious as to what the special content is for people who own the title. Anyone got any ideas what it might be?
Deep Down in 2014? Really?
Yeah, no way that game is making it in 2014.
Sony's still got games to reveal that will launch this year that they havent announced yet because you know Gamescom and Tokyo game shows haven't happened yet. But sure trolls keep at it hoping it will fuel your anti PS4 agenda. Won't matter anyway as Sony will go into 2015 with the sales lead they achieved with few big games going into a year with several huge ones coming out. Despite the trolling honestly it's futile your titan fell and couldn't stop the PS4 and now that their AAA games are right around the corner it's game over. If the PS4 is at a near 2-1 sales ratio now with the games they've had then prepare to have your mind blown in starting holiday 2014 and into 2015.
Lol was about to say we still hav TGS & GC to look forward to.Where they could announce some new games.
I am sure they will announce games at TGS and Gamescom, and possibly one or two small unannounced japanese-only games are going to be released this year, but you are out of your mind if you expect Sony to announce a huge title to be released in America for 2014 at TGS or Gamescom. Sony's 2014 schedule is set in stone for better or worse. Clearly, Sony thought the Order was going to make it for the Fall and it didn't, and it has left a pretty big hole for their exclusive 2014 line-up.
No love for Guilty Gear. Imo its a criminally underrated franchise.
Criminally indeed. I saw someone say "Guilty what?" on here the other week when someone was listing PS4 games, and I felt awful. Have people not heard of Arc System Works? BlazeBlue, Persona 4 Arena? Amazing games in amazing series.
games with very small fan bases
Ill be suprised if Deep Down comes out in 2014
I think Deep Down will make 2014... In Japan
Little Big Planet 3? My favorite new exclusive. The Last of Us is a classic and Deep Down probably will not be released this year.
I just wana play Destiny and Planetside 2.
Really looking forward to playing Deep Down. Should be great.
Deep Down is probably coming next year...like the rest
lame list no LBP3
Who cares if there are exclusives or not as long as you have decent games to play until then and we will!...Exclusives are to help sell consoles...Something Sony's not really having a problem with right now....In a while we'll have more than we have time to play them!
deep down is probably not hitting this year. but lbp3 is. still... kind of a rough list. it's too bad that the order isn't hitting this winter. i bet ms is happy though, because their exclusive lineup for the holidays is much more enticing and will probably help give them some momentum. the stronger the competition, the better, i say.
Wow its so bad for the PS4 on exclusive's that they have to include dlc very pathetic
People are really starting to be pathetic here. 'It's a port / remaster' - so is Halo MC collection. 'It's cross-gen' - so is Forza Horizon 2. 'It's dlc' - no, it is a standalone game. I guess it's just like Spotie said - it doesn't matter when it's a port/cross-gen/dlc on Microsoft's console. So what do you have left after this? Sunset Overdrive? Ori and the blind forest, a PC/X1 indie? Like I said, just pathetic.
And yet if it's on PC and ps4 it's not exclusive somehow, but turn that around if it's on PC and xb1 somehow it's exclusive ??? Titanfall and dead rising 3 are the two biggest example. Here's more max the curse brotherhood ( also on 360 ) Spartan assault, loco cycle all on PC. This whole thing has to stop, at the end of the day is, Is the game available on the platform , yes or no . Doesn't matter were else it is
Still haven't bought one of these yet. Waiting for The Witness, I guess.
