Ask PSLS: Which PS4 Launch Titles Are You Buying?

August 29, 2013Written by Jason Dunning


Marking our second Ask PSLS of the day (with another one coming very soon), we wanted to talk all about the PlayStation 4 launch games that are expected to be available with the console on November 15th/29th, or before December 31st at the very latest.

So we asked the staff: Which PS4 launch titles are you buying?

Anthony Severino – I Said Disk! (@Sev_Anthony)

Is it a dick move to say that I’m not buying any games? I’m spoiled rotten, and I’ll probably get them all sent to me for review – so why would I buy any? If I don’t receive them though, the games I will buy would be Killzone: Shadow Fall, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, and maybe Knack. Oh, and maybe DriveClub so I can be one of the only people who have the full game.

Well, to be honest, I really don’t have enough money to buy any games. In fact, I just barely had enough to pay off the system. However, I do plan to hit the streets, do a little dance, and make enough money to afford the following games: Killzone: Shadow Fall, Watch Dogs, and Knack. Killzone was a great series on the PS3 and looks stunning on the PS4, Watch Dogs just looks like a blast, and Knack was extremely fun at E3. Oh, and Warframe looks really, really cool, so I might find time to pick that up. I would list LEGO Marvel Super Heroes but I only have 1 DualShock 4 coming so I will get that on PS3.

In simple list format? The definitely must haves for me are Watch Dogs, Assassin’s Creed IVKillzone: Shadow Fall, and Knack. I’m considering LEGO Marvel Super Heroes and a variety of the downloadable indie titles, including Contrast. I’ll get the free version of DriveClub from PS Plus, but I really don’t plan on getting anything else early on. I suppose these titles should keep me busy through the end of the year, then on into 2014… the year of the PS4.

Well, I’ll be getting DriveClub and ResoGun through PlayStation Plus (assuming ResoGun is free in North America as well), I’ll be downloading some F2P games like Blacklight: Retribution and Warframe, but for games I’d actually spend some money on? Probably just Killzone: Shadow Fall due to lack of money.

If I happen to find some buried treasure between now and November though, I would probably also grab Knack, Battlefield 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts, and Watch Dogs, though I doubt that’s going to happen…

I think about the only launch title I’m excited for is Killzone, everything else looks a bit boring.

As a huge Killzone fan, Shadow Fall is my most anticipated PS4 title, but Knack and DriveClub are both on my want list.
