Sony Really Needs Uncharted 4 To Launch For The Holidays

The holiday lineup is far from being complete, but one thing bothers me:

The lack of confirmed PlayStation 4 exclusives for the fourth quarter.

Obviously, we'll be looking to E3 and hoping that Sony confirms a few. Driveclub - set for October 7 - isn't good enough to combat the likes of Halo 5, which is supposedly set to release later this year for the Xbox One. If Sony wants to keep the heat on Microsoft, they absolutely need to produce a high-profile PS4 exclusive for the holiday season.

Ideally, that's Uncharted 4 (or whatever they ultimately call it). There's a possibility that we'll also get The Order: 1886, but you never rely on an unproven new IP to see you through the immensely competitive holiday rush. In previous years, Sony usually had at least one or two top-tier exclusives for the October-December period, and never has it been more important than this year. They've just launched a new system, there's a chance Microsoft might issue a $400 Xbox One (sans Kinect) for the holiday shoppers, and MS keeps teasing a lot of new exclusive IPs, too.

Sony really needs to respond to this, and I'm hoping that happens at E3. They've been saying for a while that Gran Turismo 7 is closer than we might think, but I doubt that'll make it out this year. A new God of War, perhaps? Quantic Dream's Dark Sorcerer project is likely a ways off, so it kinda looks like Uncharted or bust. Third-party titles will only go so far early on in this new console generation.

I've always just assumed U4 would come out in the fall, they always have, and Sony really needs a heavy hitter now. And now that I think about it, the mass exodus of ND devs could be because of a new forced deadline for the new Uncharted mandated by Sony, when they figured they'd have the usual time to make the game they want.

We could still see The Last Guardian revealed for a surprise fall release as a ps4 exclusive. I would say Project Beast (Beast Souls) would be nice for Fall but if trends continue that won't hit until next March. I've actually kinda just started looking forward to all the great stuff coming out in 2015 a lot more due to the ambiguity of the holiday line up.

Judging by the number of Titanfall's sold so far on 360, there still could be a good number of gamers who have yet to have made the XO transition. I wouldn't be surprised if MS pulls ahead in the states if Sony doesn't get some strong titles to fight back.

I don't know. Just by looking at VGchartz it seems to be doing well. It was last updated there on April 19th and I think the game launched just a bit before that for 360.
Yah, I know. It's not really conclusive of anything but it seems to show that there's still an active 360 community who hasn't made the switch.

Temjin, maybe those of us with a 360 upgraded to PS4 as their new gen console of choice. With no PS version of Titanfall the other console version was the 360 one for those that do not want an X1 yet.

This gen I will be playing most on PS4 but I'm still interested in a few MS exclusives and I will get a X1 when it drops in price and the exclusives are on the store shelves but it looks likle it will be my second choice console.

That's the thing. Once the price drops and Halo comes out, then the real party starts for MS. If not, then they should just quit the console race. Lol, jk, but it's kinda true that they should at least bow down to Sony. If Halo and a price drop doesn't get them closer, then what will?

Most 360 owners bought/are buying PS4 instead.I know plenty and some hated PS3.Halo is just one game and COD/Destiny will hurt its market.MS needs something far better than Halo to threaten Sony.They are a one trick pony.Halo has exhausted its fanbase.

I think a bigger portion just bought it because it was less money and they heard that the PS4 version was somehow better. I doubt few are even really noticing the 1080p jump. Lines of resolution won't win any battles I think.

I'm still stewing over the fact that this generation is nothing but a massive drought even after PS4 was in development for all those years. I'm still glad I bought the system when I did but c'mon man where are the games? E3 is going to have to flip so many wigs back after all these lame games on PS4.

I think it's just part of how huge the industry top tier games have grown from past gens. These days AAA means massive massive expenses that take a lot of time.
I pretty much hope we don't see a hard reset of platforms for a long long time.

Whenever somebody such as WorldEndsWithMe, correctly, mentions how weak the PS4 lineup is to this point, there's always at least one comment defending it with the 'first years are always like this,' excuse. I'm sorry but never have first years been as bad as we've seen this generation. The Wii U was nothing in 2013, its first full year, but Super Mario 3D World and late ports of PS3/360 games. But at least SM3DW is a legitimately great game. What has the PS4 had and what does it have on the way? I'm not going to pretend like I bought a $400 console for indie games and PS3 'remasters.' So tell me, where are the games? I agree first years aren't usually great but again, never this bad. In North America, PS1's first full year of 96 had some gems like Resident Evil, Tekken 2, Tomb Rider and Crash Bandicoot. PS2, 2001 actually was awesome... Twisted Metal: Black, Gran Turismo 3, ICO, Jak and Daxter, Devil May Cry, Grand Theft Auto III, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, Final Fantasy X and Silent Hill 2, I'm sure I missed a few. PS3, 2007 wasn't stellar but had a few great games in Ratchet & Clank: Tools of Detruction, Heavenly Sword and Uncharted. For this year, PS4 has inFamous: Second Son, a good but not great and ultimately disappointing game and that's it unless a miracle happens and both The Order and Uncharted 4 come out this and it's still up in the air if The Order will even be any good.

Some people need to take the Sony goggles off for a second and just admit the PS4 is a $400 dust magnet right now. This isn't doom and gloom, just truth. Eventually PS4 will be an excellent console, I expect in 2016 there will be many great games, but right now, the lineup just isn't good, even by first-year standards.

PS1's first year was 95. (Released in December of 94) And the first year was not good. 96, as you say, was okay. PS2's launch was sort of scattered, and the titles you list are good, but most of them released after a full year despite being "located" within the first full calendar year. The same could be said of the PS3. In fact, Uncharted released exactly 1 full year after release.

I'm not saying the lineup so far isn't week, but I am suggesting you're the one with the rose-tinted glasses here. You're not really remembering the previous systems first year clearly.

PS1 launched in 1995 in North America, and I went with first full years on the market like Jan. 1, 96- Dec. 31, 96 to be fair and take the launch out of it since the first 3 months are almost always devoid of games outside of day 1. The three previous consoles had better launches than PS4, unless of course you like indie games and don't mind spending another $60 on games you bought in 2013. Since I'm not a big fan of indie games and since I'm not re-buying year old games, the PS4 lineup is easily the weakest. The only way this gets turned around is if all three of Batman: Arkham Knight, The Order and Uncharted 4 come out this year (I don't expect to see any of them before March 2015) and live up to the hype. There's also Watch Dogs, DriveClub and Destiny but expectations on those should be very low.

I don't think Sony needs a high profile exclusive this fall. The tables have turned and Sony has the best gaming machine this time.

Multiplats will take care of that. This fall I will be busy with Arkham Knight and the new Dragon Age on PS4, obviously. Those will play best on PS4 this time. Hopefully The Order will be good.

No matter what Sony does, the ones interested in MS exclusives will get an X1. I'm interested in Halo5 and I might pick up an X1 this fall if Microsoft makes it worthwhile ($$$) as rumored. There are news about the new Gears of War and there are a few new exclusive IPs that look fun like Sunset Overdrive developed by Insomniac (Traitors!!) no less. So things are looking good for the X1, lets see if the games deliver.

Sony has the multiplats in the bag and a stable of first party studios (I hope that is still true amid all the lay offs and downsizesing). I hope Sony announces many first party games at E3 besides Uncharted. It will be weird if MS has more exclusive efforts than Sony.

Either way with the multiplats advantage Sony has half the battle won already.

Uncharted 4 is not coming out this year and I don't think we'll see The Order either. We're getting the very unnecessary The Last of Us Remastered and possibly $ony will release the Uncharted trilogy for PS4 to tide everybody over. Sadly, fanboys will eat this up. It's become increasingly obvious that unless you skipped the entire last generation, the PortStation4 will be nothing more than a dust collector until 2016 because that's all it has right now, port after port, and the rare indie gem surrounded by 10 terrible indie games. The console is selling well, that's great, doesn't do anything for me as there is absolutely nothing worth playing. I really hope Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is an early June 2015 release at the latest or the first 10 months of next year will be as horrible as all of this year has been.

Xombito: Yeah, in terms of sales and PS4 vs. Xbox One, they don't mean anything. They'll generate hardware sales boosts on both sides.

Only exclusives fuel sales for one particular piece of hardware because - wait for it - it's only available on that one piece of hardware.

Hence, a new Call of Duty is meaningless if we're referring specifically to the console war. A new Uncharted and a new Halo on the other hand...

I've got nothing against multiplats, the problem is that of the big ones currently scheduled for this year Arkham Knight (which I still say has been pushed into 2015 as recent rumors have suggested) is the only one that I have confidence will be any good. Watch Dogs looks like garbage, The Evil Within seems very average at best, Destiny will end up just like Titanfall, hyped because belief because it's an FPS not named Call of Duty then everybody will play it and realize how utterly mediocre it actually is. The other games aren't even worth mentioning. So yes, I stand by my statement, PS4 will mostly be a dust collector until 2016 when good games, multiplat or exclusive, are coming out on a more consistent basis. There will be a few hits in 2015 but they'll be few and far between.

kinda, they need it to release this year, but they need more than just 1 game!
especially considering on the other side of the pond theres quantum break, sunset overdrive, D4, and a little game called halo.
hell at this stage even the friggin wiiu is looking to have a more exciting year!
$ony REALLY needs to blast the doors off E3 showing off plenty of new IPs and sequels, and hopefully a few of them releasing this year, otherwise there going to see how quickly, and hostile, this industry can be!
they already recently upped their expected FY loss by ANOTHER 200M, i think thats more than enough!

Is it just me who feels that the current Sony exclusive IPs all feel a bit... Old now?

Not even my favourite Sony exclusives, like LittleBigPlanet, would make my heart skip an extra beat had a new iteration been revealed at E3. As far as I'm concerned their best card was Infamous, and that card is played now.

They really, really need to establish some new IPs now.

As long as i can play destiny on the ps4, im all good this fall. Some people (not referring to the author of this article) whine a bit too much about a system that's not even a year old yet not having enough exclusive games. You bought a system a the beginning stages? That comes with the territory. It's why i waited on getting a ps2, and a ps3 until a least a year or so out. Also the reason i opted out of getting a ps4 right away.

No, it's not some defense of the ps4, but the plain damn truth. A lot of the games that truly were memorable for me normally came a sometime after the release of the console, be it the ps2, 3, or xbox 360. Some sony fans have become so use to a large selection of quality (subjective) games, they forget that droughts do happen especially near the start.

Guess what happened during those other droughts? You got by, your console of choice didn't sink into oblivion, and all was well.

Halo will not grow the xbox fan base.Everyone who wants it are xbox fans who only play xbox.People fail to understand the demographics.Halo will come regardless so those who want it know that and already have or are buying an x1.Halo sells on average of 8-9 million within 1 and a half year.So everyone who has an x1 are Halo fans which means thats already half of its fanbase.Halo will not sell an extra 10mil consoles the way people act.It will boost sales for one month and sell to those who already have an x1.Nothing will stop people from wanting to play Halo regardless of what Sony does and vise versa as people are already into the PS4.

Seriously doubt that Halo 5 will be releasing before Halo 2 Anniversary edition, which is supposed to be out this year, so I'd expect that to come out next year, reducing the immediate pressure on Sony. Microsoft does still have Sunset Overdrive and Quantum Break as their big hitters, though. (I doubt that the Holiday 2014 list is going to expand much, considering that we're already almost halfway through the year and most publishers like to build hype for more than six months, so anything else is going to be next year).

Against those two, Sony has DriveClub and The Order (and, I suppose, Deep Down and possibly Everquest Next). I really don't think that Sony *needs* Uncharted 4, because the opposition isn't stiff enough to necessitate it.

However, Sony does need to reveal it and make sure that people know that it will be out next year. They need to make sure that people stay excited for the PS4, and the best way to do that is to lift the lid on as many exclusives as they can reasonably hope to release within the next eighteen months. That means Uncharted 4, Guerilla's new IP, Media Molecule's PS4/Move game, whatever it is that Bend Studio is working on, the rumoured Project Beast, Lily Bergamo, and, preferably, Santa Monica's new IP.

Because Microsoft is going to be rolling out some heavy hitters, too, with Halo 5, Gears 4, Project Spark (I thought that would have been released by now...), Project Totem, Project (Nagano?--Platinum's rumoured XBO exclusive), whatever Lift London and Rare are working on, plus they've been teasing exclusive third-party partnerships, too.

This year doesn't matter all that much to either company. 2015 is the real battleground, and I daresay it's gonna be a doozy.

I agree with you but nothing will sell on xbox but Halo and Gears.Sony always does better with different genres and new IPs.

Knack is platinum (as horrible as it is lol) but Ryse is not.The only platinum game on x1 right now published by MS is Forza (an old franchise) while Kinect Sports Rivals has flopped hard.

All 3 of Sony's games are platinum.I expect Dc and The Order to do better than the original Motorstorm and Uncharted.

Quantum Break,Sunset and Project Park will barely sell 1mil combined if at all.Destiny, COD and BF and Halo 2 will be what the majority of xbox fans buy as usual.

I don't know why people are suddenly surprised there aren't games yet. It's not like we didn't know that before the system released. I specifically decided not to get one yet because I knew the first year would be weak.

PS3's start was a different sort of abysmal of epic/record proportions. It's now beat out 360 which has a year head start and media success.

Am I worried? Well, I'm not a moron, so no.

If it weren't for my PS3 slim dieing last month I would've kept waiting. A window of opportunity happened to open much earlier than I expected so I jumped at it.

As it is, with the rate I can play games, the current crop of what's available will keep me busy until newer titles start popping in.
I look forward to these future releases:
Transistor
Watch Dogs
TLoU Remaster
Madden
possibly Destiny
Batman
AC Unity
possibly Dragon Age
and the super duper edition of DOA5 Team Ninja unveils at E3…. pleeEEASE.

I'll also at least play through CoD's new campaign once or twice.

I think folks forget that Sony's messaging strategy is making sure this gen to not announce their plans too soon. Remember that at this time last year, they had scarcely announced PS4's existence. We knew next to nothing about the games, the price, etc. And then remember the AVALANCHE of PS4 news we got at last year's E3? I think they are just taking their time this year, same as last.

Great news announcements should be unleashed on the public very, very carefully. You only have a few such announcements per year, and you need to make them count. Do it right, and at the right time, and you can ride a crest of positive press coverage and fan reaction for months. Announce a game too early, or use up all your great announcements too early in the year, and then folks will get bored or frustrated down the line. A delicate balance but I've learned to trust that Sony (this gen, anyway) has great stuff going on behind the scenes.

Halo wont hurt the ps4 as it did not hurt the ps2.Last gen xbox had gears, elder scrolls and other games that sold it before Halo.

Lets not forget about Live though psn has caught up.No one game will sell any console and games like Destiny will sell the ps4 regardless of U4.

Would I like it? Yes, but I want at least 3 good exclusives for the fall instead of just one high profile game.

Everyone on this site should know Sony succeeds with variety and multiple games.

Destiny will hurt Halo anyway since it is the spiritual successor to the game.Halo is not as big as people think with COD and GTA topping it on the xbox.

Most fans play third party and Sony has the best versions now. We will see though, but trends change every generation.
