Here Are The Confirmed PS4 Launch Titles

More Than Half Are Digital

Sony has revealed a list of 33 PS4 games slated to release before the end of 2013, including heavy-hitters like Killzone 3 and DriveClub alongside a slew of multiplatform tiles.

However, it's worth noting that 15 of them will release on Blu-Ray, with the remaining 18 launching digitally via the PlayStation Network. Numerous indie games such as Flower and Hohokum rub shoulders with Free To Play multiplayer games like Planetside 2 (which should have featured more heavily yesterday!) and Warframe, creating an impressively varied ecosystem whether you have PlayStation Plus or not. Some pundits, however, reckon that the PS4 might lack exclusive clout.

Let us know what you make of it!

Possibly (definitely?) the first console launch where buying the console and spending no money on games is a viable and even sensible option. Planetside, War Thunder, DriveClub Lite and any PS+ indie freebies should keep the average gamer occupied until the boxed releases start to come down in price

I'd argue the first Wii was a viable purchase with no added games. The Wii Sports bundled with it could easily keep a family happy for weeks or even months.

That said, I'd much rather have the ps4's launch "freebies" than the wii's ones!

That is not a very impressive list at all but anyway where is
the "LAUNCH" lineup not the lineup coming out before next year ?.
Driveclub -

They have been trounced by MS at Gamescom, free Fifa 14 for pre orders,better game launch lineup, Xbox One only dedicated servers through MS cloud for multu format titles such as CALL OF DUTY: GHOSTS etc.

@stevenjameshyde: OUYA? ;)

You make a very important point, though. PS4 will let you hit the ground running with any number of excellent free games, that will be playable even if you don't have PS Plus. Choice is good, and there's plenty of it on PS4.

However, as dessi800 points out, Microsoft are bringing a much sterner selection of big boxed games to the table, and packing some seriously big guns. It's a shame that they didn't hold a press conference to hammer their point home, though.

tbh I think it's fair to consider them all as launch games if the machine comes out over here 29/11 and the games are all out before 31/12. I'd imagine the majority will be available when the machine comes out at the end of November.

Very true. Making Gran Turismo 6 current-gen instead of PS4 launch title looks every bit a bizarre a decision as some of Microsoft's, and one that's far more difficult to do a 180 on

I've no definite plans to go next gen yet but if I do replace my 360 it'll be with a PS4 if only for the free content on PS+. It saves buying games - I've hardly bought anything for my Vita. I just play the free games each month. Will keep on PC gaming whatever happens in the front room.
