For those of you who are going to be getting a next generation console over the next several weeks, what games do you plan on getting? I normally would only get one or two titles, but since I got rid of my Xbox 360 and most of the games I owned for the system (as I either owned them on PC through Steam or didn't care to ever go back to them) I ended up having some extra spending money on games. The titles I decided to get are:

1. Killzone:Shadow Fall

2. Battlefield 4

3. Assassin's Creed 4

4. Knack

5. Call of Duty: Ghosts

6. Need For Speed: Rivals

As I said, typically I wouldn't get this many games at launch but I figured since I had the extra money I would go for it since the next game I want to get is conceivably inFamous: Second Son and that won't be out until sometime later in Q1. Not to mention there really isn't anything a Steam sale would do for me (outside of Borderlands 2 DLC) so I should be set. That being said, what games do you plan on picking up for your Xbone or PS4? Is there anything you feel "obligated" to pick up or something that you don't feel you could pick the system up without?

Edit: I would say that free games that we are going to get like Contrast, Rezogun, or Killer Instinct are givens considering 100% of people will have those if they have an online subscription.

None, because Im not getting a console at launch. Waiting for destiny and infamous (hopefully they dont get pushed back)

  • Battlefield 4
  • Assassin's Creed 4
  • Killzone Shadowfall

And I'm interested in trying out Warframe and DC Universe Online.

#6 Posted by Sammo21 (3714 posts) -

@asurastrike: I like Warframe on PC and have played it for about a year now. I think I have liked it a little less in recent months because of all the sweeping changes they have made to the game, but if you go into matchmaking and play then you will have a good time. I might pick up DCUO again for a little play time here and there as I had a Green Lantern style character I enjoyed.

I know I'm picking up Killzone Shadowfall and Knack. I know I'm renting Lego Marvel. I'm still trying to decide if I want to buy or rent AC4, BF4, and Need for Speed. I'm thinking of doing the Target buy two get one free on those last three.

If I keep my XBO pre-order I would probably buy Dead Rising 3 and rent Ryse.

Raibaruzu and Kiruzoon PSFO


#9 Posted by ChoboBot (157 posts) -
  • Playstation 4
  • Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag
  • FIFA 14

I just pre-ordered this today, so I hope I get the Playstation 4 before Christmas.

#10 Posted by MildMolasses (3230 posts) -

AC IV, NFS: Rivals, and if I can still get in on that swapping deal at Futureshop or Best Buy, CoD: Ghosts. Depending on reception and if I hear good things about the sp, I might get Killzone as well

#11 Posted by Gfeltner78 (30 posts) -

Kill Zone Shadow Fall

Resogun, Contrast (free, but I am still stoked)


I am interested in ACIV, but I have only played part of 2 and I thought it was just ok. Might just save my gaming money for Diablo.

#12 Edited by ninnanuam (288 posts) -

Xbox 1 - dead rising 3

PS4 - AC4

Need for speed will be purchased on whichever is the best version.

Maybe COD on PS4 but I generally get my FPS love in Planetside 2 these days.

Oh and I guess I get Fifa 14 on Xbox 1 for free....so that's a game, I might, maybe, one day..... play.

#13 Edited by TheManWithNoPlan (6103 posts) -
  • Killzone Shadowfall
  • Assassin's Creed 4
  • Battlefield 4

Getting real excited!

#14 Posted by SMTDante89 (2608 posts) -
  • Killzone: Shadow Fall (GameStop pre-order, already got it since they got shipments early)
  • Resogun (PS+)
  • Contrast (PS+)
  • Sound Shapes (Cross-Buy)
  • Warframe ("pre-ordered" it for free in-game stuff)
  • I guess Playroom too, but that's a given.

If there was a Target near me, I would seriously consider picking up Assassin's Creed IV (my first since II), Knack, and either that Lego Marvel game or Injustice if they were all in stock before launch since they have that B2G1 Free deal going on this week.

#15 Posted by Sammo21 (3714 posts) -

@smtdante89: I hit platinum in Lego Marvel Super Heroes last week. I thought that game was pretty fun.

#16 Posted by fisk0 (4710 posts) -

I already own Battlefield 4 and Assassin's Creed 4, since you get the cheap upgrade from PS3 for them. I probably won't pick up the PS4 until late December or even January though.

#17 Edited by Shaunage (746 posts) -

Getting an Xbox One with:

  • Forza 5
  • Ryse
  • Dead Rising 3
  • Assassin's Creed IV
  • Call of Duty: Ghosts
  • Battlefield 4
  • Need for Speed: Rivals
  • Crimson Dragon
  • Lococycle
  • FIFA 14 (free with console)
  • Killer Instinct (full version free from MS)

And people are complaining about the launch lineup...

#18 Posted by billyhoush (1207 posts) -
  • Killzone
  • AC: Black Flag
  • Battlefield 4
  • Call of Duty: Ghosts

Still thinking about Rivals. I'll wait for reviews.

#19 Posted by natetodamax (19230 posts) -

I'm getting Battlefield 4 and Killzone Shadow Fall with my PS4, then Assassins Creed IV and NBA 2K14 a week later.

#20 Edited by TheMasterDS (2200 posts) -

Knack, Assassin Creed 3, Resogun, Maybe Another Indie Game.

Dead Rising 3, Crimson Dragon maybe, Killer Instinct maybe. I dunno.

#21 Posted by Creamypies (4097 posts) -

Assassins Creed IV, Battlefield 4, Killzone and FIFA 14.

Feel like I cover all bases with those 4 games.

#22 Posted by Nubikal (109 posts) -

Getting the PS4 mega bundle, so Killzone and the PS+ games for sure. Will likely get FIFA 14 and BF4 as well. Never got around to playing Warframe on PC, so will give that a shot on PS4, shame the 'pre-order' bonuses aren't available in the UK though.

#23 Posted by VirtuaGrant (52 posts) -

Shadow Fall, Contrast, Resogun, Flow, Flower and War Thunder will hold me over until around Christmas time. Might pick up something like Tiny Brains or Switch Galaxy Ultra to try out some of the downloadable stuff too.
Might pick up Black Flag, Ghosts, BF4 and Knack in the January sales if there is a price drop.

#24 Posted by crusader8463 (14433 posts) -

None of them interest me. The only next gen game I saw that looked cool was inFamous but that's a ways away and it's not a system seller.

#25 Posted by Scroll (607 posts) -

It depends on how much I can afford/How silly I am feeling at the time but here are a few:

  • Killzone (Bundle)
  • Need for speed Rivals
  • Battlefield 4
  • Assassins creed 4
  • Call of duty ghost? Maybe
  • And NBA2k14? I kinda like to see what silly next gen features sports titles have.

I hope the whole amazon 3 for 2 deal works out else I'm gonna be broke.

#26 Posted by EricSmith (446 posts) -

Xbox One:

  • Forza 5
  • Dead Rising 3
  • LocoCycle
  • Crimson Dragon
  • CoD: Ghosts (upgrade)
  • Xbox Fitness (free with Gold)


  • Assassin's Creed 4
  • Battlefield 4 (if it isn't fucked)
  • Free PS+ games

Anyone who says these launch lineups suck are just kidding themselves. While I don't care for Killzone, and don't have any interest in Knack, they too look like good games.

#27 Posted by mems1224 (276 posts) -

Dead Rising 3 and BF4 are the only good looking launch games.

#28 Posted by Silver-Streak (1413 posts) -

I just got back from price matching Target's buy 2 get 1 free at Best Buy, so here's how it's going to be for a few weeks:

(Speaking of which, I got ultra lucky and the store manager let me match the deal even through preorder items as long as they came out this week, which is why I have NFS:R)


  • Killzone: Shadow Fall
  • Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag
  • Need for Speed: Rivals


  • Dead Rising 3

While I was originally going to do the deal with XBO as well and get Ryse/Forza too, something was going on with their system and they couldn't add Ryse for sale at all. Which I guess is good, as there's a lot of mixed messaging out there right now. If more positive reviews/info comes out by Thursday night, I might just do the deal again then, else maybe it'll be Lego Marvel.

#29 Edited by EuanDewar (5117 posts) -

I'm not getting it till chrimbo but i'm thinkin

  • Fifa 14 (with the console)
  • Forza 5
  • BF4
  • Dead Rising 3 (maybe)
  • Peggle 2
#30 Posted by Spoonman671 (4840 posts) -

Killzone: Shadow Fall
Battlefield 4
Various PSN games
Free-to-play stuff like Warframe.

#31 Posted by Ramone (2982 posts) -

If I end up getting a PS4, probably:

  • AC4
  • Killzone
  • BF4
  • FIFA 2014
#32 Posted by Branwulf (412 posts) -

X Rebirth

Oh snap.

#35 Posted by marc (584 posts) -

Battlefield 4 and Assassins Creed 4 is what im buying. Will also be playing Resougun, Contrast, and Warframe.

#36 Posted by Nekroskop (2786 posts) -

You should skip CoD: Ghosts. The PS4 and Xbone versions have the same problems the PC version has(microstutters, sudden freezing in the main menu etc). Wait for a patch.

#37 Posted by SomeDeliCook (2341 posts) -

Gonna stop by Target before I pickup my PS4 at Gamestop since they are in the same shopping center. If Target has Killzone and Assassin's Creed 4, then I'll get Battlefield 4 for free, otherwise it'll just be the first two.

#38 Posted by Franstone (1160 posts) -

Dead Rising 3
Forza 5
Killer Instinct
Crimson Dragon

#39 Posted by Irvandus (2937 posts) -
  • AC4
  • Battlefield 4
  • Killzone
#40 Posted by Silver-Streak (1413 posts) -

@somedelicook: As a heads up, Target is selling all in-stock PS4 games right now. BF4, Killzone, and AC4 are no longer street dated. This also means that people may buy all the copies for this deal before Friday. Might want to head out there and grab that deal now.

#41 Posted by Haruko (358 posts) -
  • Need for Speed Rivals
  • Battlefield 4
  • Assassins Creed 4
  • Killzone Shadowfall

Taking advantage of the Target buy 2 get one and won a gift card at work for the 4th so.

#42 Posted by BlatantNinja23 (926 posts) -
  • Forza 5
  • Dead Rising 3 (well, that's see the reviews)
  • NBA 2k 14 ($10 upgrade)
  • FIFA 14 ($10 upgrade)
  • Call of Duty Ghosts ($10 upgrade)
  • LocoCycle
  • Crimson Dragon
  • Killer Instincts
  • and I guess Powerstar Golf is $20, so I guess why not that as well?

Hard for me to complain about a launch when I just listed 9 games.

#43 Posted by Vonocourt (2172 posts) -

Definitely getting:

  • Killzone: Shadowfall
  • Knack
  • Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag
  • Killer Instinct

Possibly, and likely getting:

  • Forza 5
  • Battlefield 4
  • Call of Duty: Ghosts
  • Lego Marvel Heroes

If all goes as plan, I'll have more retail games at launch for the PS4 then I did for the entirety of the Wii U's first year.

#44 Posted by PinkFloydPLA (26 posts) -

X360: Kameo, Dead or Alive 4, Halo Anniversary.

PS3: Resistance 1, Killzone Trilogy, MGS The Legacy Collection (all major MGS games 1 package)

I only game on PC, but now that the next generation of consoles is coming out,I will buy a 360 and PS3 to play the console exclusives. I want to start playing them in a rough order from older to newer (with exceptions).

#45 Posted by Seikenfreak (626 posts) -

I aim to get with the Buy 2, Get 1 Free sales (PS4):

  • Need For Speed: Rivals
  • Lego Marvel Super Heroes
  • Killzone: Shadowfall
  • Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag
  • Knack
  • ???

Not sure what I'd get as the sixth as I don't really have something else I really want... *thinks* ..unless if I could get Battlefield 4 for PC? Not sure if I really want that though.

I definitely want NFS:Rivals and Lego Marvel. AC4 I guess.. People said the boat stuff is cool? /shrug.. I've got the other 3 main games. Killzone because I'd hope it'd be a nice display for the new system? Not big on FPS games on a console but whatever. Knack because it seems like a good 'ol fashioned simple video game and should look pretty for the system. I don't really expect much else out of it but it'll probably be more interesting than Killzone.

Also whatever is available for free with PS+.

Dead Rising 3

Fifa 14
