Edited in light of the recent push back of Watch Dogs.


For budget reasons I am limiting myself to two games at launch. I know I'm getting Watch Dogs, so what should the 2nd title be. All of the above listed titles are games that I know I will like, I just can't decide which one to get.

Definitely not AC4, Watch Dogs is already an open world game, which we all know takes time to play. And while they are vastly different open world games, there's still styles of play they share from being both open world games and developed by Ubisoft developers. Which is not to say I don't like it. But I finished brotherhood and didn't want to touch anything afterwards. AC4 seems to do a lot of stuff right, and the naval stuff from AC3 was one of the best parts, they kind of ran that story into the ground too.

I chose Killzone, only because it's looking really pretty and I like the setting, even if Guerrilla Games seemed intent on screwing up everything about the story in KZ2 & 3. It'll still be a great showcase game for the hardware, GG is good at that at least, especially after their trial by fire trying to make KZ2 look like the fake demo video.

Call of Duty is just more call of duty. If you've played one, you've played them all, and the campaign is likely to be another short bombastic affair. The multiplayer is just not the kind of MP I like for a shooter. It's also multiplatform and cross generation, so while it will still look good and run well, it might not take advantage of all the bells and whistles of the next gen consoles.

Don't like sports, and not too interested in the simplicity of Lego games, even though they seem fun enough.

Interesting question.  If you'd asked me three months ago, I would have answered Killzone on the grounds that I would play Assassin's Creed IV on PC.  Now, with the updated system requirements, the PlayStation-exclusive Aveline content, and my expectation that Ubisoft will be investing heavily in getting their flagship next-gen franchise off on the right foot, I'm voting AC4.

That said, I'm still planning to pick up Killzone at or near launch.

I've gone through the list of release titles over and over and ended up picking... none.  Is Watch Dogs really supposed to be that great?  I may go with Lego Marvel just to have something on the PS4.  

You might ask why I'm even bothering with the PS4 if I don't like any of the titles - I'm anticipating there will be a few "must have exclusives" down the road.

I'm surprised Call of Duty is getting votes in this poll. That's probably the game that least deserves its next-gen status of all the alternatives listed (well, that and Fifa).

Keep in mind you get a bunch of stuff with PS plus including a version of Driveclub and Resogun (which looks to be fantastic).

Why's that? Everything I've seen on Ghosts has it looking quite nice.

That's disappointing.  That was about the only exclusive announced for the system that interested me.

That's too bad, I wish there was a new Ratchet and Clank or even Jak and Dexter game at launch. That would be a no brainer for me.

title change to 'What is your 1st PS4 Launch game?'.  for me it'll more like be InfAmouS SeconD SOn, whether or not I get it during the launch window depends on what else is out after the launch titles.

Done. Although I'm still getting two games at launch, plus I have Plus, so I guess I will go with the top two choices in the poll.

I admit I haven't paid all that much attention to it since its reveal at E3 since I'm sick of the Call of Duty series after having Activision milk it to death, but what I've seen didn't look next-gen at all. Their reveal looked like a 5 year old PC game at best, and the "fancy stuff" they chose to focus on to wow people was fish and a dog. Then there was stuff like godrays in the trailer that were so fake that they even came out of the trees from a totally different direction than where the sun was, and other such inconsistencies that made the entire thing feel like a set in a movie. They're using the same old engine with only a few iterative changes. This is a series that hasn't even taken real advantage of PC features for many years.

Not real sure, burnt out on AC and a barely played ACIII at all.  Not into FIFA, CoD on Xbone if I get it at all, Killzone never looked like something I wanted to play and  I have never played a Lego game.  I guess buy the console and see what games get the best reviews?  Then go that way?  Could cancel the system pre-order and may still do so but there will be games for the PS4 that I will want to play long before any price drop happens and that is the way I'm leaning now.

Yeah, it's a real bummer.  Knack was one of the few true exclusives for the PS4 and I could use a good classic platformer like Ratchet & Clank or something.

Sadly, you will now have to choose a different game than watch dogs for next month, because all versions of Watch Dogs was just delayed until Spring 2014.

So, I'd probably pickup AC4 in its place, I was watching the PS4 version being played and it looked smooth as butter, whereas previous AC games had issues with framerate.

There's a whole slew of downloadable titles I want too.

Does that video show actual game play?  It seemed more like a reprocessed highlight reel.  Did look good and may be tempted although I'm not a big basketball fan.

Yeah after seeing that trailer.....I'm getting it for sure. Looks absolutely incredible.

As for the NFL...yeah, this game just pours salt in that wound. Madden is just pathetic looking compared to this. I can't believe the NFL did this to gamers. Greedy bastards.
