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.

Just got home from Deadpool and ... it's not good. I liked the jabs at Green Lantern and the previous movie Deadpool, but that was about it. The rest was just painfully forced dick jokes. Wife fell asleep.

Looks like I'm not gonna be able to 100% Tearaway Unfolded until Monday at the least. I'm definitely writing about it this weekend and am trying my hardest to get my screenshots off of my PS4 (especially hard as I don't do social media anymore)

I've never done a blog before, so I may as well try one with a review of Stranger of Sword City....well, when I get entered into that contest of course

Shakedown Hawaii is giving me good GTA vibes. I missed the topdown GTA games when they were a thing. I have to decide what platform to get it for since it's coming to 3DS/Vita/PS4/PC (probably the Vita version for moi).

You think your art sucks? Here's the rule34 I made of Larx yesterday. Look at it and despair.

Hey Dreamweaver? If you think your art sucks, you should have a look at my magnum opus. It's of Cloud from the popular game, Final Fantasy: All the Bravest.

I never thought this would happen, but here I am. all of my 700+ pokemon gone in one day. My cart stopped working and there's nothing I can do. I quit, you can't just rebuild all that. Time to find something else.

Tom Collins is a pretty great drink, and well suited for poutine. consumption

It may be because I've been drinking but... We need some dung beetles from ark for the front page. Move that dung on out.

Does anyone know how to get PS4 screenshots onto a PC without needing a flash drive? I don't have a spare.

This is an example of how bad my drawings are. I honestly think drawing stick figures would've been easier on the eyes. :( The worst thing about this image is that this was made after I got BETTER. Trust me, you don't want to see my earlier stuff. T^T

So I received a mysterious box in the mail today. When I opened it I was blown away...The friends I've made here on Destructoid are amazing (More pics in the comments).

Woe is me. This month's Cblog theme is basically an excuse to draw pretty girls, and here I am with no time.

Back in tip-top shape guys, feel waaaaay better than I have done these past few weeks. Plus my voice sounds slightly raspy now, meaning my Batman impression has been upgraded. Apologies to Gaj and Solar the most, my male-up kisses go to you: Xxxxxx

Wait... Is that...? Could it be...? It IS! Gravity Rush's Kat has taken a break from rushing and graviting to sacrifice some souls in Soul Sacrifice Delta! Which isn't even going for $8 on the PS Store right now! What a steal!

Finally got my in game time down to under an hour in Super Metroid. I'm pretty happy about that.
