Only 8 games for ps4 out of the gate?

NES launched with 18.

/I say 8 cause some dude on Twitter posted 8 games and claimed he got them all? They are on what I can only imagine is on his bed in his mom's basement.....

Found this, don't know if it's up to date. There are several re-releases and PSN releases as well as the retail titles.

http://ca.ign.com/wikis/playstation-4/PlayStation_4_Launch_Titles

Other than being broke, I can't think I've ever bought a console at launch. I think the PS2 being just 4 or 5 months after release being the closest one. Almost always better to wait 6 months to a year after release.

I'm not sure why you're glad you have a Wii U?

These are the reasons why PC gamers are down on MS.

I'm not very convinced that Microsoft would have done anything good for PC gaming if they tried. Microsoft is terrible at innovation and gaming.

What I am hearing from people who preordered, their credit card is being charged and the boxes are getting ready to ship out.
Not sure in the US but here in Canada I usually get over night delivery with amazon orders. I am sure it will ship today or tomorrow.

If it's anything like other things I've gotten there, then usually what they'll do is run a pre-auth on the card a day before or so to make sure they can charge it when they send the order to the warehouse to ship, so that's what people are probably seeing.

I'm kind of excited to get mine finally, but I don't even know what I'm going to play on it. I'll find out if it I can get what I want before the 2 for 1 thing devours their stock tomorrow morning I guess.

Didn't we have a "Pornasaur" at one point? Maybe I had them crossed...

And just for the record, Gabe Newell is an asshole who lives with his head up his fat ass, believing the whole time that he's God's greatest gift to the planet. But, since Steve Jobs became the worm food that he deserves to be, I guess someone had to take over, huh?

So because Jobs was a good businessman he deserves cancer and death? WTF is wrong with you? You are one sad excuse for a "human being." He did more in one day than you will do in your whole life.

And I don't quite understand the hate towards Gabe at all either. He's the only one trying to do something for the good of PC gaming instead of letting it fall to the consoles and he gets hate because of it? Ooooook.

I actually liked the "unboxing" one that sony put out themselves, where they did a complete tear-down on a PS4. I don't think I've ever seen a large corporation do that with their own appliance.

Funny how people just assume that Valve's "living room strategy" is going to be a success, even though nobody has a damn clue how it's going to work out. It could be the hardware equivelent of SimCity for all we know. Just because it's not Microsoft doesn't guarantee success. BTW, to the asshole who called Microsoft "losers"... you should take a look at the history of the company (not the products) and tell me how making that kind of money and having such a profound affect on the world gets them classified as "losers". You obviously have a fucked up world view and I can't imagine what you consider a "winner". (It's obviously NOT YOU, fucktard.)

Wow, when did Gabe break into your house and steal all your candy? Did you call the cops?

The problem with MS isn't that they aren't successful (and for the record, Ballmer, for all the hate he gets, brought the company from a $30B company when Gates retired, to a $70B company), the problem is that they basically abandoned Windows as a gaming platform. They made a halfhearted attempt with GFW, but failed to back it up or keep it going. They pulled crap like making Halo XBox only, under the misguided assumption that PC gamers would abandon PC for XBox. They are pulling crap like moving toward locking down the marketplace for Windows a la Apple's (cr)app store.

Imagine a world where MS-developed games like Halo got simultaneous XBox and PC releases. Imagine a world where MS vigorously pushed companies like Rockstar to release games like RDR on PC. Imagine a world where MS marketed itself and aligned its policies to be the ANTI-Apple open platform instead of trying to emulate them. Imagine a MS that didn't force DX versions to Windows upgrades. These are the reasons why PC gamers are down on MS.

Because MS was king of the hill and then Gates left and Ballmer took off. And then they were basically eclipsed by every other company on the planet - and it didn't have to happen! So yeah, their myopia and arrogance is fully worthy of pointing at their tiny penis and laughing.

Yeah, that's an absolutely insane deal.
It's their way of matching the Target B2G1 deal; again, my concern is that since it's such a small window I expect supply shortages.
