    I am amazed with how bland ps4′s launch lineup looks. Say what you want about Microsoft, but they have announced far more interesting games for Xbox One.

    #7 2 years ago
  8. Ireland Michael

    @7 Different strokes for different folks. I personally think the Xbox One’s lineup is a giant plate of blandness with bland for dessert and a side portion of super-bland just for good measure. The only game in their entire showing that even remotely piqued my interest was Project Spark.

    #8 2 years ago
  9. Hcw87

    @6
    For a game that’s supposed to show the ”power of the PS4”, Knack is just really lacking something. I don’t know if it’s the instantly disappearing bits of destruction (similar to Metal Gear Rising), or just overall graphical fidelity.

    And when it comes to Driveclub, it doesn’t look anywhere close as good as The Crew or Forza 5. The damagephysics is like oldschool Gran Turismo where you can slam into a wall and glide through a corner. Far too arcadey.

    Whether either of the announced lineup of games is good is still to be determined.

    #10 2 years ago

    @4 – I played both at E3 and here are my honest thoughts.

    Knack looks like fun but for me, it got boring after a while (maybe the demo didn’t include the more exciting levels). It has that Lego series feel where you just do the same moves, over and over again. There was no real challenge. Also the pacing is not fast and exciting. The graphics are good but nothing that screams next-gen. It was the ONLY game that I walked away from after 5 min of play.

    Driveclub was not running at 60fps (looked more like 30fps), the controls were more arcade style and the track they demoed was dull. The game did not feel next-gen to me. I think GT6 (I played that too) was a better racing game.

    Those are my impressions…

  16. Fethennour

    Knack looks very fun, and it will be one of my very first PS4 games, I’m looking forward to it. Not that much interested in DriveClub though, I’m not really a big fan of racing games.
    @11 : Thanks for sharing your impressions.

  17. Odahviing

    I’m keen to see what games will be revealed at Gamescom.

    #17 2 years ago
  18. Telepathic.Geometry

    I think that the main reason I am a PS3 guy rather than a 360 guy is that the 360 games tend to focus strongly on shooters, racing games and sports sims, whereas – at least as I see it – PS3 focuses more on platformers, puzzlers and action adventure games.

    Obviously both platforms carry a lot of the same games, but I feel that divide. I’m pretty sure that a lot of people will say that Titanfall is better than Knack, and I’m sure that from many different perspectives that will be true, but I would choose Knack every time. Running around shooting huge mechs DOES appeal to me, but the call of adventure and hidden rooms and power-ups is where my heart lies.

    Knack is getting bad rep, because it was the first game that was revealed for the ps4. The first game should show the awesome graphics of the system, instead we got a childs game with silly graphics. Thats why.

    This was the biggest mistake of sony since the console reveal.

    #25 2 years ago
  26. loci

    The reason Knack is a launch title is (as they explained) because they want to showcase diversity rather than just more shooters.
    As for a lack of titles shown at E3, they have said they are holding title reveals back, for Gamescom etc.
    Microsoft have already shot their load…Sony are still on the foreplay ~_~

    I honestly think certain people has lost their marbles.

    @19 i’ll start with xbox fanboy: i honestly hope that “LOL” was just laughing at yourself because like most fanboys what you speak of has no proof.

    @21 That doesn’t even make any sense. This also applies to @24 in a different sense.
    http://www.psxextreme.com/ps4-news/268.html
    “It was pretty intentional. We were like yeah we hate to see all the PS4 games being FPS or action-adventure or very photorealistic, you know big-budget blockbuster games. And you know people like these games, but these are not the only kinds of games that people can have fun with.”
    So god forbid Sony should cater heavily to one audience at first and not the other.

    @12 – The demo didn’t seem open world. But I haven’t looked up any info on Drive Club.

    They will have a free version, so there will be no risk in trying it.

    @26 – Nothing wrong with diversity. But it could have been a better showcase title. The gameplay, graphics and challenge could have been beefed up. The game at this point does not scream, “you need to buy a PS4!”.

    My problem with games like Knack and the Lego Series is that, in my opinion, they do not stack up well with Nintendo’s platformers in terms of gameplay and challenge. I feel a lot more creativity goes into Nintendo’s offerings in terms of level design.

    I feel like games like Knack are meant so that an 8 year old can beat it without much trouble. Which is ok but for me, it’s boring.

    But things could change after the official release. Maybe it’s better than what was showed.

I don’t mind personal preferences, I personally prefer PC>PS4>XB1>PS3>PSV>X360>WiiU>3DS, but I don’t need to bring that up every topic & harass those who share different views. Nor make ridiculous claims that PC is dying & those that remain are pirates, I think the current Steam sales beg to differ, currently over 4.5million users with a peak of close to 5million today.

    @33 – That’s why Forza looks better and runs at 60 fps :P

    You have no clue what the systems are really capable of. We will see the true power of both systems after launch.

    Let’s not forget all the hype that surrounded the almighty Cell processor. In the end, there was no visible difference in graphical power.

    @42 At E3 there weren’t attendants standing there telling you about DriveClub?

    #43 2 years ago
  44. pcbros

    @43 – They had a booth that was divided into two sides (teams). When it was your turn to try the game, they just told you where to go and mentioned that if you post a tweet on their tablet, you get a shirt and key-chain (which I have).

    So I just basically took my seet, they took my picture with the PS Camera I believe and I began racing on my own. No info at all was provided.

    But then again, most playable demos (except for Nintendo’s) were left up to you to explore, unless you specifically called over a rep and asked a question.

    #44 2 years ago
  45. SlayerGT

    @44 well good job securing info! ;) I kid. No really thanks for the input. I just automatically assumed it was open world..idk why. But yeah I’m getting Plus as soon as my Live runs out on the 24th. So I’ll check it out I guess. So far no one seems up on it but me.

    #45 2 years ago
  46. pcbros

    @45 – Actually, the most informative demos were the ones where 20-30 people were invited into a small room and a developer played a live demo while explaining what was going on.

    I had the pleasure to attend developer demos for Titanfall, Killzone, Infamous, Watchdogs, Garden Warfare, Battlefield 4, and Forza 5.

    I actually played: Killer Instinct, Forza 5, DriveClub, Knack, Battlefield 4, Splinter Cell, Mario 3D, Mario Kart 8, Donkey Kong Country and Gran Turismo 6.

    So I felt I left with a good overview of what’s to come :)

    As far as the lack-luster excitement for DriveClub, I think it’s because racing games usually don’t draw in a lot of excitement to begin with. So you either have car fanatics that drool over the realism Forza and Gran Turismo bring or you have the people who want fast, exciting racing games… and those people will gravitate towards Need for Speed. I think DriveClub is just getting a little lost in the mix. It’s neither a realistic sim or an over-the-top racer.

    #46 2 years ago
  47. SlayerGT

    @46 I think they should have teamed Evo up with Polyphony and made an open world street racing game using GT tech. Same everything except open world instead of tracks and casual clothes instead of racing suits. I mean you figure how well GT sells, take the idea of Forza Horizon but go full sim like GT. I would love such a game. And then throw motorcycles in for good measure :D

    So you didn’t get to try The Crew? That’s another I’m curious about.

    #47 2 years ago
  48. Lengendaryboss

    @Slayer
    They tried: won’t happen
    “The new racer is said to play in a manner similar to Project Gotham Racing. The team wanted to label it a Gran Turismo title, according to the site, but Sony Japan didn’t approve. Even without the Gran Turismo name, however, the studio are supposedly referring to the game internally as Europe’s biggest racer in the past decade.”

    @47 – I didn’t get to see The Crew :(

    E3 is divided into two main buildings. One building had Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo. This building had reasonable wait times to see and play games.

    The other had mainly 3rd-party developers like Ubisoft, EA, Sega, and Activision. That building was packed! Every game had roughly a +2 hour wait. So it was really hard to see everything. Good thing Sony had a few Ubisoft games in their booth (I only had to wait around 15-20 min to see Watchdogs vs over two hours to see the same game at the Ubisoft booth).

    But I agree, an open-world racing game with realistic sim physics would be fun. Test Drive and Forza Horizon have sort of done it.
