I've got internal debates.

KZ:SF
+ visual showpiece
+ multiplayer to last me a hella long time
+ compared to BF and COD, I don't know what KZ is going to give me in SP and MP
- questionable replay-value after completing a second lap of it
- it will get old for me and everybody else eventually
- shooty-action I won't get tired of comes free with Euro PS+, Resogun

KNACK
+ comfy game to relax with (I relax with Dark Souls)
+ replay-value like a mutha because I found it to be speedrunnable and enjoyable in that special way
+ stream friendly since I do it on nicovideo
+ super curious about it, more so than KZ
- not exactly a visual showpiece compared to KZ:SF

Also the message editor reformatted everything after I edited it to fix a typo. What a pain in the ass. Sorry engineers, I hate its fucking guts and I wish I could help make it less of a..

Killzone, AC4, CoD, and NFS Rivals. Got some good diversity and plenty to hold me over for a long time. And I'm going to wait a few weeks and get BF4. Would have gotten that at launch but history has taught me to never buy a Battlefield on launch. Every release has been a hot mess for at least a month and not being able to have a next gen beta I'm being cautious.

Damn, this KZ seems like it's gonna sell more copies than the first 3 combined.

Reminder that Target has Buy 2 Get 1 Free for PS4 games on launch week. I already preordered Killzone. Getting Knack, and AC3 from Target on launch day. No idea what my free game will be.

The delay of Watch Dogs and Drive Club is really gonna boost Killzone sales. It's also gonna make them think it's more successful then it really is.

Anyways the only worthy launch title is Killzone. What else is there even?

Killzone bundle will (supposedly) arrive to my household, so KZ it is. Resogun with PS Plus, don't know if they're offering other games with that, not-including the delayed Driveclub. What comes to buying other games, AC 4 seems very likely. Really on the fence about Knack, might grab it if the reviews are positive enough. No interest towards BF 4 and...well, I don't know if there even is any other games besides those. Need for Speed, I guess? Mneh.

Now that I'm reading more about the upcoming Target/Amazon B2G1 deal, I think I'm going to pick up ACIV, Injustice, and either Killzone or NFS. I'm leaning more heavily toward NFS because it's a game my Beyoncé and I tend to hate playing shooters with a controller.

If I could only get one game, it would definitely be Killzone: Shadow Fall. That game looks like it's going to be rock solid. If I could get others, they would probably be Knack (though I may wait a see how it turns out), Resogun, and Call of Duty: Ghosts. I know I could bet CoD on current gen or PC, but I figured I'd get it just to have another game in my next gen library. I would have gotten Watch Dogs, but we all know what happened there.

If I was picking one up at launch, I'd go right for NBA 2k14.

I need that next-gen Wade.

Assassin's Creed 4 right now. But I'm also considering buying Battlefield 4, as well.

with the Target B2G1 deal, I might go with Killzone, Knack, and NBA 2k14. But now that NFS is coming out at launch, I might trade that with Knack.

Killzone was the first game I preorded. Since then I've decided on AC3, NFS Rivals, and Knack as well. Those should cover any genre I'll feel like playing on a console for the next couple months. Considering CoD Ghosts just because all my friends are into it and playing with friends is my reason for buying a PS4 in the first place.

Killzone, and AC4 are my launch games. I also have NFS:Rivals preordered from Amazon but it says Nov 22 for the release date. Does anyone know if that is correct?

I'm thinking BF4. Even though I bought it on the PC that's really the only game I can think of I want to play...again.

Battlefield 4 with Premium. Other stuff if Amazon matches Targets B2G1 Free deal. If that is the case I'll also get Need for Speed and Injustice.

Originally I was going to buy Watch Dogs, then it got delayed, so I decided to get AC4, but they gave it to me free with my video card. So I spent a week trying to decide if Knack and Resogun were good enough excuses to spend $400, and decided they were not. So now when I pick up my PS4, it will probably be in February with a copy of Infamous.

The launch games are exactly why Im skipping the launch. There is just not a damn thing that looks remotely interesting to me. Which, is a shame.

I am torn between Knack and Killzone, probably Knack.

Upgrading my PS3 copy of FIFA 14 to a PS4 one and hopefully getting AC IV and Battlefield 4.

Resogun and Contrast(I have PS+). Aside from those, I'll just have whatever I get through Gamefly. If I was going to buy one, though, it would probably be Assassin's Creed or Killzone.

If I keep my preorder I'll get Killzone, Assassins Creed and Need for Speed. I still haven't decided if I'm going with a Xbox One or PS4 at launch. I've never really been a Killzone fan but this one looks pretty good and I prefer sci-fi shooters over military ones.

Well I was going to get a ps4 but I was too late in the preorders. Im not sure which game to get. I already got Battlefield 4 on my PC, im still stuck on assassins creed 2 so Black Flag is out of the picture. I have never played a killzone game so I would probably get knack. If Watch Dogs was not delayed that would have been my PS4 launch game.
