The lights are on
From new Killzone and Infamous titles to Bungie's Destiny and Blizzard's Diablo III, companies announced a slew of games at Sony's PlayStation 4 presentation today. Here's a round-up of every story we wrote about the known PlayStation 4 games.
Deep Down - Capcom
Deep Down is a fantasy adventure that appears to offer cooperative monster hunting.
Destiny – Bungie
Bungie announced same day release on PS3 and PS4, as well as PlayStation exclusive content for Destiny
Diablo III – Blizzard
Blizzard announced a new partnership with Sony that will bring the famed developer back into the console scene. The first game in the partnership is Diablo III, which has been retooled for consoles and will release on both PS4 and PS3.
DriveClub – Evolution Studios
Team based racing takes center stage in the new PS4 title from Evolution.
Infamous: Second Son – Sucker Punch
The superhero power trip of the Infamous series continues on the PlayStation 4.
Killzone: Shadow Fall – Guerilla Games
The Killzone series is back again with a new entry entitled Shadow Fall. The first look at the game included plenty of adrenaline inducing moments, like hanging by a rope from a plane to shot down enemies. See for yourself to determine how you think it stacks up for the series.
Knack – Japan Studio
A little guy named Knack is the starring character in a new game from Mark Cerny all about a war against the goblins.
Watch Dogs – Ubisoft
We saw Watch Dogs at E3 2012, and Ubisoft was cagey on where we would be able to play the game. We all assumed it was next-gen, but Ubisoft wouldn't share the details. Now Ubisoft finally confirmed that the game will be coming to PlayStation 4, and then showed some brand new gameplay.
The Witness – Jonathon Blow
Ever since the release of Braid, we’ve all been excited about Jonathan Blow’s next project. The Witness was announced quite awhile ago, but at Sony’s conference we learned that it would be premiering on its console, and it would lead the charge for Sony’s new platform allowing developers to self-publish their own games in an open environment.
Unannounced Final Fantasy Game – Square Enix
Final Fantasy brand director Shinji Hashimoto revealed that the Final Fantasy franchise is headed to the newly announced Sony system.
Unannounced Quantic Dream Project
Founder David Cage says the technology of the PS4 will allow Quantic Dream to convey subtle emotions and that games will be on par with film in terms of displaying character’s emotions.
Unannounced Media Molecule Game
Alex Evans of Media Molecule took the stage at today's Sony presser to discuss the company's vision for the PS4.

Aaawwww ya Watch Dogs!!!!
So far so good in my opinion. I think a lot of developers are going to want to make games on this system, so we should see a lot more at E3.
This is a surprisingly awesome list. Even though I've been a Sony fan my entire life I was planning on putting off buying the PS4 until its second model got a big price drop. This list may change my mind. Destiny, Diablo, inFamous, Final Fantasy, and even Watch Dogs and Knack all seem amazing. I can't wait!
Knack was the best thing I saw.
Knack looks a little lackluster.
Very snazzy so far.
Infamous aside, I wasn't really impressed with what they showed. Even my interest in Watch Dogs went down a bit. Hopefully at E3 there will be more information about price and more games.
Disappointing conference, I literally do not care about any of these. Except Deep Down, which has huge potential to be awesome.
Kind of a mixed bag in terms of games showed, but i am definitely more interested in this console than i ever was for the ps3.
I am so ready for this
