We still don't have the full confirmed launch lineup for the PlayStation 4, but it's always interesting to see what retailers list as upcoming titles.
For example, check out Swedish retailer CDON's interesting assortment . There's lots to talk about there, although you certainly can't say the collection is 100% accurate.
Firstly, you may notice that Titanfall is listed for the PS4. The new game from Respawn Entertainment (formed by ex-Infinity Ward bosses Jason West and Vince Zampella) was revealed as an Xbox exclusive during E3, but many have assumed it'll end up on PS4 at some point. Secondly, there's an odd listing for Demon's Souls 2 . Dark Souls was the spiritual successor to Demon's Souls , and Dark Souls II is definitely on the way. But Sony still owns the Demon's Souls IP, so… Thirdly, there's a title called Evolve , which Take-Two apparently purchased from THQ when the latter bit the dust earlier this year.
See? All sorts of things worthy of discussion. 😉
Titanfall is badass.
I'm not a big multiplayer guy at all but I would definitely check out Titanfall if/when it came to PS4. It almost certainly will, too — Respawn practically confirmed it would love to get the game to PS4 owners eventually(I mean duh, who wouldn't?!)
We're overdue for a great "Big Robots" game, hopefully Titanfall delivers.
Upon learning Titanfall is Multiplayer only I have since struck it from my mental bargain bin.
I think they should go ahead and make Dark Souls a little more accessible but invest in an even more hardcore super difficult Demon's Souls 2 for PS4 owners.
The one thing Sony has failed to grasp is that it's worth spending a bit on third party exclusives for games that have a very hearty fanbase. It coaxes people into the next generation, selling consoles and serving as the occasional love letter to fans.
I'll never, ever like multiplayer nearly as much as I like single player or co-op campaigns. It's a shame with Titanfall, because I love the art direction of the game and I love giant robots in general. So even if it's a really good, unique multiplayer game, it's still videogames as sport, not videogames as narrative and/or exploration. Too bad.
and more importantly, it's still just another stereotypical shooter, and doesn't even look technically impressive.
Yeah, i would gladly welcome Demon's Souls 2, as I preferred Demon's to Dark Souls.
Titanfall looks awesome…
Personally couldn't care less about Titanfall. Multiplayer looks good I guess if you're into that but no single-player? Yeah, goodbye.
New Demon's Souls though would be sweeeet! That would definitely be a system-seller for Sony if they're able to replicate that experience on the PS4 but with improved gameplay.
Don't dumb it down. Don't change too much. etc. and I guarantee PS4's will fly off shelves.
