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.

N-Not that P1 isn't perfect the way she is! Isn't that right sweetie? Yes it... Oh, now don't you go and listen to those P2 fans! They just go around spreading rumors and pretending Hitler was just a handsome gentleman in sunglasses, that's what THEY do!

Persona Q has made me realize I really want a Persona 1 remake on 3DS in a similar style. A lot. A loooooooot. You listening, Atlus?
Super Mario Maker, the announcement of Sonic Lost World for Steam, and remembering all of the mods that got made for the PC version of Sonic Generations makes me wish SEGA/Sonic Team would make their own dedicated Sonic level creation game.

Hey, is your fridge running? You better catch it. I mean, it has all your food, and without food, you die. Like, forever. You don't wanna die right? If you die, how will you watch The Good wife with your favourite bowl of Ben and Jerry's ice cream? Go.

The newest PS4 update finally got rid of that bug where I'd get the "you can customize your power options" message every time I turned on my console!

Should I just pass on MGSV? I haven't really liked any of the games after Snake Eater, and it's being used as a money sink at the moment.

Sonic Lost World is coming to PC on November 2nd for $25! I may double dip, hopefully they'll make the final boss less rage-inducing. Ah well, I can always grind for extra lives lol.

Went to play MGSV, got prompted to download the MGO data; it's not on the PS Store yet. Or maybe it's Kojima-san's way of telling me it's not the real MGO data, but is instead a janitor who once protected me from a puddle of pee and now wears my face.
