    Smart choice of games. Some people may think what COD and FIFA are XBox exclusives. Sony needs to prove the public what its not the case.

    I wouldn’t read too much into it – no KZ either.

    Killzone isn’t really a title that you can show to all ages…

    A racing game like Drive Club is. As are all the other demo games: Knack, FIFA, Octodad etc…

    @5, neither are CoD: Ghosts and AC:BF… where are you going with this? It’s an over 18 event, lol.

    As in; Drive Club could be demo’d but it isn’t. There is talk of it being delayed… Are the two related?

    You would never be able to show mature rated games in a public kiosk so their ommision doesn’t mean anything.

    @7, yeah but CoD is usually ‘mature’ rated or ’18′ as we like to say over here, so that doesn’t mean anything, they could quite easily show KZ as well, especially due to the fact it’s an 18+ event anyway so it shouldn’t matter.

    And yes in all likelihood Driveclub isn’t there because its been delayed, wouldn’t surprise me at all.

    Sorry, my bad. I thought this was the ‘instore demo booth’ thing. Wrong thread.

    In my haste for Sony bashing, I jumped the gun! :) (joke)

    Just been informed that AC4 and CoD Ghosts are not actually playable during these events. Updated the piece.

    Also, I hope the PS4′s don’t have a RLoD at this event (red line of death).

    (desperately stabs pins into his PS4 voodoo doll) ;)

    @13, in all honesty the more I hear about the PS4, the more I’m thinking I should cancel my preorder and wait till it’s got some decent games and all the services up and running, it’s looking incredibly rushed :(.

    Update. There are no games, you can only play the TRex dinosaur demo from the PS1 demo disk.

    @14

    I get that feeling too. I have a gut feeling the services and OS are rushed too, can’t explain why.

    Im still on the fence though, i’ll see whats around at launch, may take the plunge. My GF is def getting an Xbone though, so I may just play on that and wait for Infamous.

    Lot’s of good stuff on Wii U coming, so the only real reason for me is because I like getting new tech on launch! :)

    At least you’d still have the console. You could, like, look at it and shit.

    @14, aye Infamous for me is the big one announced so far, but that’s a way off. My main reason for a PS4 is quite simply for the Naughty Dog games, Uncharted 4 is my most anticipated title, but I’m really struggling to get excited at the moment, especially when I’m gonna be left with just KZ:SF on launch. Woop de frickin’ doo!

    Honestly, after the shambles of the XB1 lock in (I have no idea whats going on, but my friend at the store says its impossible to sign up and they have been given 0 information) I can’t say I’m impressed or interested.
