Simon Says: I’m Slightly Worried About the PS4 Launch

The initial PS4 reveal and E3 seem as though they happened a very long time ago and, in gaming, four months is a long time. Games such as Grand Theft Auto V, FIFA 14 and The Last of Us have all proven to be great successes when we know that the next generation of consoles aren’t too far away. Until a few days ago, I was very much looking forward to picking up my pre-ordered PS4 on launch day as I wanted to experience the future of console gaming as quickly as possible. With recent delays as well as several rumours, I have become a little sceptical about the launch games for the PS4.

While Watch Dogs was already being released on several platforms including the PS4 and Xbox One, I had pre-ordered the bundle which featured Watch Dogs. I was waiting to see what this futuristic free-roaming title could offer on the next-gen consoles. Now that it has been delayed because of ‘quality issues’, I think there were several reasons why the game was delayed. It may have been because of all the games which Ubisoft have already released this autumn with Splinter Cell: Blacklist and Rayman, as well as Assassin’s Creed IV due out in two weeks’ time.

Perhaps Ubisoft were a little hesitant due to Grand Theft Auto Online being so popular as it’ll be played for many months to come and will probably be better than Watch Dogs. Anything could have happened in the development of the game but it seems as though we have seen so much marketing from this game that by the time it comes out, the community may become frustrated as it’ll have been almost 2 years since the initial reveal.

I have seen several posts on Twitter and several forums that suggest a large number of gamers who have pre-ordered their PS4 will cancel their pre-order because of Watch Dogs being delayed. I have not heard of anyone saying that they will be cancelling their Xbox One pre-order because Watch Dogs has been delayed. I can see where some people are coming from because of the latest rumour which spread today (Thursday).

There have been a few rumours saying that Drive Club was going to be delayed until spring 2014, much like Watch Dogs. Drive Club was one of the games I was looking to buy upon launch and it is tradition that the new console has at least one exclusive racing launch title. This wasn’t going to be a monumental hit and I think Sony knew this but I see no reason why this game has been delayed other than it isn’t ready. If you are looking for fast-paced racing on PS4, it looks as though it could be Need for Speed: Rivals or nothing. Hopefully the rumour will be false but at the minute it’s up in the air.

The main reason I am a little sceptical is when you compare the launch titles for the PS4 to that of the Xbox One’s. The games exclusively being released on the PS4 don’t interest me. I played Killzone 2 for a few hours and didn’t enjoy it. I enjoy my first-person shooters but the game felt a little jarring and I never went back to play it and will be why I won’t buy Shadow Fall.

For those of you who believe Knack will be a great exclusive, I’m sorry but it won’t. By all means Sony prove me wrong but, I’m finding it hard to find words to describe how I feel about Knack. I just think it will be a huge disappointment when you consider Mark Cerny, who directed the game and featured on games such as God of War III, Uncharted and the Ratchet & Clank series. I have been slated by several Playstation fans who believe that this game will be fantastic but I just can’t see it being like that.

With Microsoft’s E3 conference, the list of launch games which they specified looked promising. With Dead Rising 3 now being added to the list of launch games, the Xbox One exclusive games now seem better than those of the PS4. With Forza Motorsport 5, Dead Rising 3 and Ryse which I’ll admit doesn’t look too good but it is still another exclusive.

With two of the three games bound to be on the must-have list to many gamers out there, you simply cannot compare the two, in my opinion. Killzone has seemed to lack that cutting edge which makes Call of Duty, Battlefield and Far Cry stand out first-person shooters. Knack is probably the Playstation’s version of Ryse in that it will probably not meet expectations. Dead Rising 3 does look very fun to play and Forza Motorsport offers the Xbox audience what they want in regards to track racing. The only way the PS4 could compete with that would be if Gran Turismo 6 was released on launch, even if Drive Club proves not to be delayed as well.

Forza is a key Xbox brand and when Forza Motorsport games are released, the Xbox community know that they are getting great quality games. I just don’t feel as though the PS4 exclusives offer me the same quality as Forza Motorsport 5 or Dead Rising 3. The only games that many people will want to play on the PS4 could be the games which are already on current-gen and are on Microsoft consoles.

It’s sad to see that the PS4 launch has taken a bit of a hit by the delay of Watch Dogs and now possibly Drive Club. I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t thought about changing my pre-order to an Xbox One but, I believe that the games will come. I owned an Xbox 360 from the start of the current-gen and missed out on many of the PS3 exclusives in the early years of the console cycle. I will eventually buy an Xbox One as well but I can’t help but feel let down by the lack of variety at the start of the PS4. You always think that the console cycles will be a step towards the future but we may not see that for the next 12 months or so.

*I did write an article last week looking at why I’m buying a console day one. I still stand by that but I think the launch titles for the PS4 could have been a lot better.

    “It’s sad to see that the PS4 launch has taken a bit of a hit by the delay of Watch Dogs…”

    Yes, and Xbone & PC also took a hit because of the Watch Dogs delay.

    “With two of the three games bound to be on the must-have list to many
    gamers out there, you simply cannot compare the two, in my opinion.
    Killzone has seemed to lack that cutting edge which makes Call of Duty,
    Battlefield and Far Cry stand out first-person shooters.”

    Don’t agree with this. In my opinion, Killzone Shadow Fall is the best exclusive out of all the launch titles, partly because it has the best visual fidelity out of all of them (for example, full 1080p and 60fps online gameplay) to truly showcase your next-gen machine’s power. None of the other launch exclusives (Ryse, Knack, Dead Rising, Forza) truly look next-gen to me; they look more like last-gen’s games upscaled to 1080p (or 900p in the case of the Xbone).

    People seem to ignore the fact that the previous Killzone titles were great games. It seems like many people are unsure about the latest Killzone just because they only owned an Xbox 360 last generation, and aren’t familiar with the quality and gameplay of the Killzone brand yet. But even though it may not have sold as well as something like Call of Duty, it’s still sold pretty well, and has developed a solid fan base that will only grow as a result of this latest entry being a launch title.

    • Phil

      You completely ignore the part where he says he’s Played KZ 2 for a couple of hours and didn’t like it. I’m in the same boat. I saw gameplay videos of KZ 2 back in the day, and thought this game isn’t for me. Regardless, I played the demo anyway when it came out, and the gameplay was pretty much exactly how I thought it would be and it didn’t hold my interest. And looking at the videos of Shadowfall, the gameplay looks to deliver the same experience.

      Yes, it’s EASILY the best looking next gen game reveal so far by MILES, but I hope you realise you just argued that people should buy Shadow Fall based on it’s graphics alone. That IMO, is a bit sad. Plus Ryse definitely looks next gen to me, just not as good as Shadow Fall.

      I hope I’m wrong, I hope shadow Fall blows me away gameplay wise and I’m pleasantly surprised. I’m going to get the game anyway because there isn’t much else to buy for PS4′s launch, but it’s hard to imagine it keeping me busy ’till the next batch of games come out in spring. Like I said, I hope I’m wrong.

    • Phil

      Nope, PC and X1 don’t take a hit, read the author carefully :

      “I have seen several posts on Twitter and several forums that suggest a
      large number of gamers who have pre-ordered their PS4 will cancel their
      pre-order because of Watch Dogs being delayed. I have not heard of
      anyone saying that they will be cancelling their Xbox One pre-order
      because Watch Dogs has been delayed.”

      So, stop trying to avoid the fact there.

    • willhe

      o.O PC took a hit? what the hell are you smoking. so people will not buy a PC because watchdog got delayed? man fanboys i dont know sometimes

  • Kamille

    Killzone Shadow Fall is a whole different beast from the usual Killzone game. You can read that on previews. The game offer many new elements that are new to the series like traversal gameplay, colorful graphics, no control lag, many different gadgets through the owl, stealth gameplay since you’re a spy in this game and not a front line soldier, etc. The game takes place on Earth, the Helghast now live on Earth too so they’ll be some interesting contrast due to these 2 factions sharing a place.

    Then we have the fact that the PS4 will have the obligatory superior multiplat games like AssCreed and BF4.

    • Joseph Lan

      That’s definitely another thing that should be taken into consideration. PS4 has a significant graphics processing advantage over the Xbone (about a 50% advantage, according to a number of developers), and that will likely lead to many if not all multiplatform titles looking and/or running the best on the PS4. If PS4 has demonstrably superior versions of games like BF4, Assassin’s Creed, and even Call of Duty: Ghosts, then that would be a big feather in the PS4 cap.

      It would certainly be a funny and ironic sight to see, if Call of Duty: Ghosts only runs at 900p on the Xbone, but a full 1080p on the PS4. That is certainly a very real possibility.

      • Steve Denninger

        You’re basing everything on rumors…
        Ok. Fist off, developers have said 50% faster. Not powerful. The fanboys say 50% powerful based on tflops # and only that. Kinda silly to ignore how the system works as a whole.

        2nd, DICE & EA have not said the resolutions for either systems. I don’t know where you’re getting AC4 & BF4 will have higher resolution on PS4. Source please.

        3rd, 1080p doesnt mean you get the best game. Framerate is key for most games. I’d rather have 60fps for a game that needs it than getting all my games 1080p.
        You also don’t know anything about Hana2. MS has THE BEST upscaler around. This will allow developers to stay at 900p and put out 60fps and also add more texxtures to their game without sacrificing anything. They can take a 900p game upscale it so in the end product it can look better than a 1080 game. You act like 1080 is king. SOURCE: RYSE

        • You are flat out wrong

          Ryse looks and plays like crap. Blunder of the century. Never believe Cevat Yerli’s lies.

      • willhe

        does anything on ps4 look 50% better than ryse? does anything on ps4 have 50% more enemies than DR3?

  • You are flat out wrong

    “I have seen several posts on Twitter and several forums that suggest a

    If that was the case, Xbone would be shooting up the public pre-order lists. Instead, it’s still lingering in the 50s. Meanwhile the PS4 actually rose in hourly bestsellers from 5th to 1st after the Driveclub delay. No one’s getting an Xbone.

    As for the Xbone’s exclusives, don’t worry about them. For the most part they’re crap 360 ports and the only 1080p game, Forza 5, barely looks like an upressed Forza 4. Ryse is a write-off too. Combine that with no games for up to nine months afterwards and by February Xdrones will be begging for Infamous.

    • Pancakes

      Why is Ryse a write-off?

      • You are flat out wrong

        Looks OK but plays like crap, will probably have a short campaign, the multiplayer’s some bolted on crap and the story will have supernatural garbage appear halfway though. So just like every other Crytek game.

        • Pancakes

          Cool. You determined all this by the latest trailer videos released? Or did you participate in a Beta?

          • You are flat out wrong

            Videos and playing it. Every time it’s the same fundamental crap.

          • tech

            He is lying. He still refers to it as ‘qte fest’ which it is far from.

            Much more like ‘hack and slash’ but he wouldn’t know, cause he hasn’t played it.

          • Pancakes
          • You are flat out wrong

            Sorry for your delusion, but I did not. I’d sign a petition to keep it on the Xbone though.

        • Hi54Geezus

          I have to stop you there, Ryse doesn’t look “ok”, it looks amazing BUT it plays ok, quite underwhelming, but boy does it look gorgeous

          • https://twitter.com/JamaInferno JamaIn4no

            seeing bashing of a game before it comes out seems more to me as respect, jealousy, admiration… cause the more they hate prove the saying right. they watch the trailers , play the demo (supposedly), then bash like its a trend, clearly they spend more of their time on Xbox videos and news, seems like Xbox is doing fine.

            [In Art, it's great when there are people who hate/love your work. it just means that they took their time to see it for what it really was. and notice it.

            to not notice or comment is the biggest failure you can get]

      • Fngstation

        Because its not coming to fagstation

    • Joseph Lan

      The fact that Watch Dogs is so firmly associated w/ the PS4 now (with the exclusive DLC, exclusive console bundle, and the game being heavily promoted on the PS4) is actually a good thing for the PS4. With so many people operating under the false notion that Watch Dogs is somehow a PS4 exclusive–including the author of this article–it really shows how strong the partnership between Sony and Ubisoft currently is, and probably will continue to be going forward. That’s a major coup for Sony.

      With Watch Dog for Xbone probably being the worst next-gen version, I wouldn’t be surprised if the vast majority of sales for the game are on the PS4 version.

      • Pancakes

        “The fact that Watch Dogs is so firmly associated w/ the Playstation brand now (with the exclusive DLC, exclusive console bundle, and the game being heavily promoted on the PS4) is actually a good thing for the PS4. ”

        Based off that association, you can also make the association that any “Quality Issue” forcing the delay of the game is tied to PS4 development problems. Overheating? Frame Rate? Whatever that issue maybe.

        With the lead platform being Sony’s, any quality issues with non-lead platforms (i.e. MS/PC) would not be a reason for a delay 30 days from launch. “The inferior console/platform” would just have the game in lesser quality shipped “as-is”.

      • DDP

        Actually, the PS4 is estimated to be over 200 000 preorders ahead of X1 in the U.S and considering Europe is Sony’s stronghold the ratio’s are more likely to have a substantial difference than the U.S

        • You are flat out wrong

          Oh, VGchartz is reliable now? :D

          Obviously maths isn’t your strong point. 1,518,249 PS4 game pre-orders vs 1,091,269 Xbone game pre-orders. With the exception of COD Shibe Doge, multiplats are trending higher on PS4 and the most pre-ordered exclusive is Killzone which is demolishing the Xbone’s crap 360 ports. And this is in the US. It’s going to be a massacre worldwide.

          “X1 is estimated to be over 300,000 preorders ahead of PS4 in the US and Europe.”

          Cite your source or end yourself.

      • You are flat out wrong

        We’ve already discussed this. “XboneDev” wouldn’t have any access to pre-order numbers and if it was true it would involve the Xbone having twice as many pre-orders as the PS4 in all the countries it’s launching in and Xbone launch countries are half that of the PS4. It’s simply logically not possible.

        Try harder, Xfag. :)

    Been saying this for a while now. Compare both lineups from a neutral standpoint and you’ll see that the Xbox One has the better launch line up of the two. Sony is all about the games and the gamers, all these zealots cry. So… why is it that MS has the more interesting line up of the two? And say what you will but I’ve seen nothing on PS4 that compares to Titanfall.

      console gamers rarely are neutral. i laugh at them putting up a list of indies talking about variety. i like to ask people if the roles was reverse how would they act

Forza graphic looks terrible? dont disrespect hard work. i understand you will standby ps4 – thats great, the guy isnt saying to jump ship- but to diss hard working devs who made a continuation of a game many of their fans love and say its crap, shit. go create your own game and see how it holds.

        keep your fanboyism in check. wanna go against Xbox One, so be it, don’t bring in devs creation into this silly war.

    • You are flat out wrong

        Titanfall is EXCLUSIVE TO ALL MICROSOFT PRODUCTS. Which means PC, 360, and Xbox One.

          • You are flat out wrong

            And people will be getting it on 360 and PC instead, especially as Titanfall barely looks current gen.

            Halo 3 was a system seller. MGS4 was a system seller. Infamous is a system seller. Halo 5 is a system seller. This? It’ll barely make a dent.

          • M$ $ony

            All of those games you listed all have something in common. They are all blockbuster hits that have major fanbases and they’re apart of a series. Titanfall, on the other hand is a brand new game that has not yet proven itself and is the very first from Respawn. In addition, IMO, I think Titanfall looks amazing!

  • Bozo Sapien

    Sony obviously got a lot of preorders before the recent fiascos and, for the most part, they are still in the good graces of gamers. I don’t think it will cripple them but suspect the early sale numbers will be much closer between PS4 and Xbox One now.

    • You are flat out wrong

      • Bozo Sapien

        Where are you seeing worldwide preorder numbers?

        • You are flat out wrong

          By doing a bit of research. Xbone’s getting blown out in Japan and Europe. Even the pre-order lists in the UK have a massive disparity with PS4 well in the lead.

          Now, tell me about your industry friends who tell you the Xbone is doing super well! ^_^

  • tech

    The truth of the matter is, there is just no reason to get a PS4 at launch.

    Why not wait until there are some real exclusives we all care about by devs that have proven themselves. By that time, there could be a PS4 price drop, more Vita price drops, and other games that might make a difference.

    There’s just nothing here to see. Knack? Even PlaystationMagazine ripped on it hard. Killzone? Just not a ‘buy a console’ worthy game. I have pretty much all the other launch titles, MMO’s and indie games.

    To make matters worse, Killer Instinct and DeadRising3 really looking good now days.

        Greatness now and greatness forever! Last time I looked the Xbox One is kicking the PS4′s ass in visuals and exclusives :)

            WOW!! I’m actually impressed at how many crap games are coming out for the PS4! Whatever happened to quality over quantity?

            I also like how you never put in a picture of Titanfall, but instead put in immature text that shows how much of a juvenile you really are.

            Couldn’t be bothered to get a pic so I wrote an accurate description of the game.

          • M$ $ony

            let’s not get to haste! You wrote your opinion about the game.

    People always seem to forget that consoles last for years, not just in the first launch days/weeks. Just look at the PS3 now, no games at first, now plenty of great successful games. So … no, not worried Xbox fanboys.

    uh, yeah, watch dogs not coming out = end of ps4… .okaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy

    that game, to me, is lame anyway… been there done that….

    To the author: Let’s not forget about the PS+ Free to Play games at launch. Let’s not forget about the free games they will be giving away monthly. Just because 2 games are delayed did not stunt the PS4 because Xbox is not going to have Planetside 2 and the many other free options. I could careless if PS4 doesn’t win launch day, the amount of problems the Xbox has including not being able to put out 1080p as well as the last minute fixes of new hardware will cause more problems with the actual console than a couple of launch titles. PS4 is for the gamers. It’s funny how fast Xbox fans forget how bad Microsoft told them to go “F” themselves at E3. Sure they changed because of the “fans demands”, No. they changed because they were going to lose out on a lot of money.

    I look forward to getting my hands on killzone SF and getting started on Planetside 2. I could not care less that DC or Watchdogs is delayed my interest in them was average at best. I keep seeing the the Xbones lineup is better, maybe for some, but that is just an opinion. I dont get a console at the start of a generation predominately becuase of the games ( launch selection is always mediocre due to intsall base and development times) I will get the ps4 because it is the latest and greatest offering by Sony. Bring on the next gen hardware the games will come later.
