Hey guys, I finally got my ps4 2 days ago, great device but I didnt buy any games for it, what game should I buy?i already got the big name games for the xbox one , I want to buy an exclusive title for the ps4, is Killzone a good pick? It's either that or knack but I read that knack for really bad reviews?

I'm with you.
I bought the Xbox One on launch but kept missing out on the PS4.
I was always going to get both eventually so I'm no fanboy of either.
The Xbox One had games I wanted.
Most of them were available on both systems, since I got the Xbox, I got them on there (Madden, NFS, ACIV).
Now that i have the PS4 on order (on a UPS truck now), I can't think of a game I want.
(of course I am an idiot for wanting a console with no games I want when I could have easily waited).
Anyway, via tips on this forum, I traded my ACIV to Gamespot for $40, I then bought the PS3 digital version and will upgrade to PS4 when it comes.

Back to your topic, Killzone is really the only option but I am waiting. It has discount written all over it,
Knack looks like a $50 tech demo.

Yeah I wouldn't pay 60 for kill zone really either, my friend wants to sell it to me for 35 so that's why I'm considering it.. I was going to wait for some game to come out as well but I think for 35 it's a good deal? And knack got some mediocre reviews all around such as on ign etc so I think it's not worth it either..

Add me on psn by the way, my gamertag is thr336m4fya

I'll add you.
My PSN is Zimmy68 (I think).

For $35, I think it would be worth it.
The game is like 50gigs, it would be worth it to see how all that looks! wink.gif

I'm trying to go the digital only route, hopefully they will have sales on that.

I could have gotten ACIV PS3 at Costco for $33 but chose to pay $39 at Amazon so I can get both platform versions digitally.

Most Knack reviews are rather bad and unjust. The majority of complaints seem to come from people who don't enjoy platformers and were expecting the game to somehow revolutionize the next gen, even though Mark Cerney CLEARLY said the title is a "2nd title purchase". The game is surprisingly good and challenging. Worth a play through even if it is a rental. As for Killzone yes you should buy regardless of the price (unless you dislike shooters). The visuals are great and the gameplay is diverse from other current shooters. The story wont leaving you feeling emotionally attached or anything. Multiplayer is pretty enjoyable and I would say fast paced. @ $35 I wouldn't pass it up. If you are unsure all around, next weekend you can demo the MP for free (download currently available in the PSN).

So far PS4 installs have been well under their advertised size. Believe KZ is actually at or under 40GB. Still looks amazing.

Killzone has a free MP weekend this next weekend, and you can pre-load it now. Maybe check it out first?

I'd say the MP is worth it for $35 alone; in additional all competitive MP DLC released will be added for free as well (except for any "COOP DLC").

Personally I liked the story and thought reviews were overly harsh in most of their complaints, especially stacked up against other AA/AAA FPS's (They're docking KZ for it's SP while giving BF and COD pretty weak campaigns a slide). It's NOT a GOTY game, but it's got a very serviceable, but forgettable, SP. MP is very solid for those looking for a different sort of MP shooter than COD or BF offer (much more focus on accuracy in the shooting, and teamplay for the scoring).

Should be a KZ thread around here to page through for some deeper thoughts.

Ryse looks like a tech demo as well. Knack while nothing special. It was entertaining and decent. Much better then I expected from the bad reviews it was getting. Unjustified imo. Any ways to the OP. KZ is good stuff. MP is nice.

The first 4 levels are great, but after that it is so ply a chore to finish the game. It's a looker, but game play wise it's not very good. Not a bad deal for $35, but I kind of regret not waiting for a sale. It's easily the least played of all the launch titles I picked up.

Agreed. Just started level 7. I was loving it through level 4. The hostage scenario was cool
If not too short. After level 4 the game took a huge nose dive in fun factor for me as well. Going to play though it and trade ir sell it. Fun levels to short, crappy levels too long.

I'm not sure how far I am but still a chance it gets better.

7, 8, 9 is one huge adventure, and I loved it. I wasn't a big fan of the stealth levels (6?) but did like the big last battle in that one.

I downloaded the killzone demo from the store yesterday, but when i went to play it, it said that game is currently unavailable. Was the demo a limited time offer I missed out on?

I'm showing multiplayer demo only which allowed me to play. The single player demo is TBA. I have the 30 day PSN + free trial and that appears to unlock the multiplayer demo as well.

MP Demo goes live this weekend, no SP yet (TBA). It's up on the store so people can get ready and download all those gigs.

The option to download multiplayer came up today after I redeemed the 30 day free trial. I just checked again and the option is no longer there probably because I already downloaded it.
