PS4 for games, was a bit of a disappointment due to the lack of games at launch. 20 games are available but most and amazingly they are available for older consoles (like PS3 and XBox 360) and platforms – they are not next generation games. Examples include FIFA 14 and Assassins Creed 4: Black Flag.
Some exclusive games: Knack, Resogun, Contrast, Warframe, Need for Speed: Rivals & Killzone Shadow Fall. A true next-gen game will take a long time for developers to roll out, so we won’t see that until next year. We are eagerly waiting for next generation games like Infamous Second Son, Drive Club, Thief & more as said on sony ps4 website, A selection of the best PlayStation 4 games, with over 180 titles in development.
