What's The One Game You Wish Was A PS4 Launch Title?

The PlayStation 4 has several great games on tap for the system's launch. But is there one title you wanted to see above all else?

I suppose the shooter fans might say they wanted a new Killzone, and they got exactly that with Shadow Fall. But maybe they wanted to see the return of Resistance for a new generation...I know I did.

Above all else, however, I believe Uncharted 4 would've been the biggest and best launch title in gaming history, even outstripping Halo for the original Xbox. That's the one game that would've caused the PS4 launch lineup to skyrocket into the stratosphere, in my opinion. Another game that might've done it is a new Gran Turismo; if GT6 had been made exclusively for the new console and not the PS3, that would've been gigantic. Oh, and if Metal Gear Solid hadn't gone multiplatform and MGSV debuted alongside the new PlayStation.

There was a time when I would've said the next Final Fantasy without even blinking an eye, but those days are long past. What about you?

Dark Souls 2. Guess I'll have to wait for Dark Souls 3 for a next gen experience. =(

BTW anyone play the beta over the weekend? Turns out you can be invaded while resting at a bonfire!!!! Hopefully it was just a beta glitch and not in the final game. When else would I be able to take a bathroom break?

I think Yakuza may make it as a launch title... for Japan lol. Poor Japanese folks have to wait till Februrary so Sony can support plenty of PS4s for its biggest markets. Sorry Japan! Love you.

Infamous: 2nd Son. But, I can wait. Uncharted, of course, or anything from Naughty Dog for that matter. I agree that Resistance would've had me more excited as far as fps's go, but Killzone: Shadow Fall is certainly tempting me to picking up a PS4 earlier than I anticipated. I would've preferred a PS4 Ratchet&Clank entry over Knack, but I'm pretty sure I'll be picking up Knack and R&C: Into the Nexus this week. And you know what? I have to admit, but Xbone fans should be psyched about TitanFall. If it were exclusive to the platform (not on pc), I'd probably spring for a xbox one, myself.

A Naughty Dog game is obvious, but personally, with their team being split in half, I figure things would take more time since Uncharted 3 to make their new title. I don't want any feeling it's being rushed just so that it can be a launch title.

If we're talking about a Fall, 2014 launch title, then that's a different story. Otherwise, it hasn't really been that long since Uncharted 3 (2011).

Uncharted 4 easily. Killzone is a big title for sure and a Gran Turismo 6 or 7 would have been super nice. However Forza is making waves and GT as a series is being affected by it and CoD and BF are the leaders in the FPS world. Uncharted 4 may be the easy answer but thats because its the best of the best. Theres no other game in the genre that even touches all the thngs the developers do right.

inFamous would have been another great launch title but only being a few months out isnt a huge deal.

Forza is only making waves to hardcore Forza fans. It's done nothing but improved graphically. They still can't do night racing or weather. They're just finally implementing open wheel vehicles. The car roster is only at 200, and track at 14 locations. DLC packs are already announced starting at $50.

The Forza DLC is the biggest BS I have ever heard and I really hope other companies don't follow. The $50 is literally for a "Season" pass as in only spring and they have more of these $50 passes planned for all of 2014 so you're looking at $210-260 for the full Forza experience. Seriously like WTF!

New generation. New IP. I love that totally new and fresh feeling.

If I had to choose an existing IP I would have to say Uncharted. Not only because I enjoy the franchise but also for the enormous buzz such a title would've created for the PS4. Not that it is lacking because even non gamers are asking me questions about the PS4. There is much interest for them to join the club.

Pure fantasy but what would happen if Sony announced Uncharted 4 at the All Access event in 11/14?

Bonus question. If they did announce that game and surprised everyone and said available tomorrow only on PlayStation 4! Would that be a coup or a logistical nightmare?

I could say Watch Dogs but that's a little too obvious. Otherwise, I'd have to go with GTA: San Andreas HD.

Uhhh.... Valkyria Chronicles 4. Seriously, that game needs to be made and the day that it is announced is the day I pick up a PS4 (probably). A new IP from Naughty Dog runs a close second, with inFamous: Second Son third.

What I really like is that the Xbox One won't actually be able to play any game until you download an update that allows it to do so. It may just be me, but that seems like an incredibly stupid idea. The PS4 may not be able to play movies and music, but at least it does its primary objective as soon as you take it out of the box.

Not the place for such statements, I know, but... seriously?

Haha - I absolutely LOVE Katamari!
It's such a wonderful concept and the playful art direction and audio effects puts them straight into my top ten game franchises of all time.

In many ways it's the perfect game concept, as far as I am concerned. Very few games I've ever played has a better replay value than Katamari. It's a real GAME through and through.

Oh man imagine if a new Fallout is announced at Thursday's Sony launch event. You would normally expect Bethesda to side with Microsoft but they have seemed pretty excited with the PS4. MGSV was revealed at Microsoft's E3 event so a new Fallout isn't completely unlikely.

I am suspecting more along the lines of a new Naughty Dog game,-fingers crossed-, or The Last Guardian, -prays to the video game god-.

Supposedly the event is going to have a ton of surprises from what inside sources have been saying.

My default response would be Uncharted 4(who wouldn't?).

What I WOULD like though would be an exclusive jrpg preferably from Level 5(Yeah, I kind of given up on SE), so there.

If it was a launch title, I would be getting a PS4 on Friday, but since it's not, I'm waiting until the game comes out to get one.

Simple , killer instinct . At least i would have no doubt about picking up my ps4 on friday .

When you re more excited for a multiplat title that s also on current gen ( assassins creed : black flag ) then a ps4 exclusive on lauch day , something is wrong .

Beside that a new rpg ( don t care which one as long as it would have been made for next gen only )would have been great or i could be happy with Deep down too .

Talking of deep down ( more to do with Capcom ) , a new dragon dogma would have been amazing too .

I wouldn't say something is wrong. If you look at the bright side, it just means for you, 3rd part games are good. After all, you don't want to depend on just 1st party games. If you have faith in Sony, you would think that all the great 1st party games will eventually come. I know I wouldn't want them to suffer quality for the sake of being a launch title. DriveClub was about to become that.

For me, GT6 on the PS4 would obviously make me buy the PS4 ASAP. However, I don't mind it being on the PS3 with the way it's shaping up. DriveClub came out of nowhere, so I don't think a GT on launch would be a good idea for Sony anyway.

Other than that, I really wanted MGSV or FFXV to be a launch. Infamous is one of them, but a few months down the road is not too bad.

With how things are now, I'll be picking up NBA 2K14 and Infamous if I'm able to get my PS4 early 2014. I'm on the fence with Shadowfall and Battlefield 4.

The Order and Second Son to name a few. Last Guardian would have been a nice surprise as well.

Not for me since I will not be there, but would be nice to have a variety and choice for those that are.

Keep playing!

For me it would be the following:

Uncharted 4
God of War 4
Borderlands 3
Phantasy Star II HD
A new Crusader game against the WEC with 3/4 perspective HD game, perhaps Crusader No Mercy. OR just a remake of No Remorse and No Regret in HD.
The original DOOM and DOOMII revisited in HD with the same art direction of all the monsters just made in glorious HD. I want a pink Baron of Hell with a goat head and horns. NO FLASHLIGHTS!
World of Warcraft on the PS4!

Just off the top of my head I am sure there are many others.

Yes the title has been through a lot, but I would be rather stoked had it been a launch title. Sadly, it seems they need even more preparation for it... I doubt we'll get it until late 2015 the earliest... So I wont be in a hurry for a PS4 then :P

Of course I'd flip out if Uncharted 4 or the next God of War was out at launch, but I'm honestly glad the heavy hitters will come later. The system itself sounds fantastic, there are some really nice showpieces out at launch, and things will only get better moving forward. Super exciting week.

A proper oldschool mashup would have been nice. Like back in the day when you'd get a demo disk with a console. With 50gb of just an install, there could be plenty of variety too...abe,ape escape,final fantasy,gran turismo,medievil,crash,spyro,cod,bf...greatness awaits...
