The big list of confirmed PlayStation 4 games

4:00 PM on 08.21.2013 // Tim Sheehy

Fifteen games available at retail by year's end

Like Microsoft, Sony has seen fit to bombard us with a list of upcoming games for their next-gen platform, set to launch this November. Of the 180 PlayStation 4 titles reportedly in development -- roughly 80 of which we can confirm -- 15 titles will be physically available at retail during the launch window of November 15, through December 31.

Of those, 12 will appear on other platforms. While those numbers may seem a bit tragic at first glance, it should be noted that Sony's digital offerings provide a slightly more diverse array of games from both major and independent developers, resulting in a combined total of 33 games to be released by year's end.

It'll be interesting to see how DriveClub will stand up against established racing franchises such as Gran Turismo and Codemasters' Grid, and thanks to PlayStation Plus, many of us will have a first-hand opportunity to put that the test. From what I've seen so far, Killzone: Shadow Fall looks to be a decent follow-up for the series, but I've become so jaded with first-person shooters in general that it'll take a lot to impress me. As for indie titles, I'm really looking forward to the fast-paced ninja platformer N++, as well as Digital Extreme's third-person co-op shooter Warframe, the latter of which is free to play at launch.

Once again, PlayStation 4 will be launching in 32 countries worldwide by the end of the year, starting with North America on November 15 where it'll retail for $399, followed by Europe and Latin America on November 29. European gamers can expect to pay €399, while it'll retail for £349 in the UK -- no word yet on any other countries.

Been playing Gears of War 3's campaign on Xbox One. Looks great on there, and Sam's voice actor is Chloe's voice actor in Uncharted 2/3. Hell yeah!

Community Question: With all the controversy surrounding review scores, what do you personally consider a "bad" score versus a "good" score? Is there a game in particular that was panned by critics that you nevertheless enjoyed? Or vice versa?
TheVeganGamer avatarTheVeganGamer
Finally got around to playing Diablo 3 with some friends, holy smokes! That game is rad!

Public service announcement: Marry an orphan. It makes the holidays so much easier when you don't have to deal with pain in the ass in-laws.

So... how long is it until we get the inevitable Colonial Marines or Ride to Hell: Retribution PS4/Xbox One re-releases?

Fallout 4 wouldn't be Fallout with ridiculous glitches and shenanigans. Here are a few I've run into - [youtube][/youtube]

I've never earnestly went drinking before so it's cool to know I'm the slow, sleepy, impaired type.

Got to admit I didn't expect to find a mewtwo amiibo at my bookstore of all places...

My cousin found out I slept with his girlfriend and is pissed. Understandable. I am totally sick of the angry phone calls though. It reminds me so much of playing Call of Duty online. The screaming 11 year olds suck on there too.

Huh. Apparently even Japan has a Black Friday sale going on on PSN right now.

Yes, Resident Evil: Revelations 2, I know that somebody has 2,625 more medallions than me. No, Resident Evil: Revelations 2, I don't really care.

This fucking Bloodborne DLC, jesus. I'm on new game+, about level 90, and shit just tears my dick off. I don't know if I want to start another guy just to avoid NG+ and level him up, etc. sigh....

Wii U, top selling black friday item on Take that you anti-Wii U people.

I am pretty hyped for when I get a laptop because I'll be able to have a good enough connection to stream XbOne/soon PS4 games to it along with natively rendered Steam games. Hype!
Avoclefo avatarAvoclefo
Got a PS4 that came with SW Battlefront this week, and planning on picking up the FFX/X-2 remake. Hype is through the roof, especially for FFX. If I were to get one other game, what should it be?

Did a google maps search around my parents house for bars and there isn't one in like 25 miles, so I picked up an Intel compute stick and South Park: Stick of Truth on Steam. That's more or less the drunken screaming I'm in the mood for at about the cost.

Do you ever have that moment of clarity when talking to someone and suddenly realising: You're just a skull, and they're just a skull, with fucking eyeballs and a sac of skin being the only comparative difference between you visually? ..just me then?

After quitting for two days out of frustration, I beat Ludwig on my first try of the night. I'm on cloud fucking nine right now.
