    That's my best guess because in a recent interview with an evolution developer (before this delay confirmation), he said he was tied to his office right until launch day to complete drive club, which gave the indication that the development was running behind schedule.

    Well, Contrast looks really interesting to me, so as a replacement I'm happy with it. I was only going to get the PS+ version of Driveclub to try it out, though it does look good too.

    I'd agree with this.

    But still - I'd rather finished/polished/best version possible than not. Same goes for WD. Lucky we're not short on racing games. And if you're racing guy you're probably also/otherwise getting FM5 with the Xbone anyway.

    I think Need for Speed: Rivals for the PS4 on Nov. 19 will take care of my driving game needs until Driveclub comes out. And people have played it on the PC and the PS4 with the experience they were almost indistinguishable from each other.

    PS4's Need for Speed Rivals more visually impressive than PC version

    I think Knack will be a Free one down the road. Its ok...it isn't going to not be on PS+ just not at launch....there are plenty of games on Sony's console when you factor in all the free to play games too. I think they needed to get the social aspect/multiplayer locked down and its better to do that right when the game hits then have a disaster and try to lure people in later. The racing market was already very tight this christmas....Forza, NFS, GT...give it some life of it's own this way. Plus....Sony is selling tons of preorders...this just means when the finally have PS4s on the shelf and they really really have to start marketing them and compete...it will hit with a combo and not just a haymaker at launch. Having Infamous SS and this game coming out after Christmas should continue to boost the console into the Spring.

    Sony develops games....and they have some good ones lined up for us. GT is a huge game and I'm sure a lot of driving enthusiast wasn't quite ready to jump next gen and miss a GT game. This way they can ease into next gen. A lot of racers in the market...I wish I had the game because it looked great...but I'm going to be around....I'll play it when its ready....and I would rather it be ready than half-assed.

    It's not about launch titles though....for me at least. I'm in this for the long haul and god only know when you'll be able to get one once the first shipment is done.

    PS4 might not have the "biggest" brand names at the day of launch. But from what I've seen....there more than enough coming during the next 3 or 4 months.

    Besides....you're going to pay the same amount on Nov 15 as you would if you bought it 3 or 4 months down the road for any of those games....why not get it Nov 15 and in the meantime just get to know the PS4 and play a couple of launch games.

    It's not like it can hurt.

    It is about launch titles. No point buying a console on launch day if there are no games you want to play on launch day. I am in that boat concernign the PS4. I wanted 1 but withthe delayed games, no pint getting one this year.

    Well, I'm not saying it's not good to have really cool launch titles....but if theres decent enough games at launch and if theres a situation like with these consoles where you don't even know when you'll be able to get them after Xmas....and then theres a few games coming out in Feb and whatnot.....might as well get one on launch.

    Like I said....you're paying the same either way. Why not make sure you have one.

    This is how I'm looking at it, partly at least.

    That and I know I'll be playing KZ SF and AC4 + a couple of sports games so I'm good. But yeah, slim picking for those with more specific tastes.

    In saying that there are Indies, so for the sake of 'securing' one (next shipment here is January 2014, after launch - I can only imagine what supply would be like for more populated areas), I'd check the Indie titles announced for launch and see if there are any that peaks your interest.

    Sounds like panic buying to me. Oh no there might be a shortage of <insert thing here> so people find that out they go buy it so they have one thus creating the shortage. If nobody reported the shortage would people rush out and buy 1?
    There was rumours of another fuel crisis in the UK a short while ago and there were large queues at petrol pumps of people panic buying.

    It ill be nothing more than a very expensive paperweight for me. Lots of The launch games that are releasing I can get on PC and at least 5 of them I can play right now.

    Assassins creed
    fifa
    NBA
    BF4
    COD
    DC universe
    Divekick
    Lego
    minecraft

    But I'm still playing the same price.....now or 5 months down the road. At least thats what I'm guessing. I don't see why they would lower the pirce 4 or 5 months from now.

    So it's not really that big of a deal. It's just a matter of timing.

    The price is irrelevant I was willing to buy day 1, I am not waiting for the price to drop I am waiting for games I want to play. If there are no games I want to play, the device is useless.

    If you don't own a powerful PC, then the Free-To-Play titles are a lot more interesting. Personally, I use a crappy 2008 MacBook, so I'm excited to try out Warframe and Blacklight, and of course Planetside 2 when that hits.

    Fair enough.

    Lets just hope there aren't too many other delays.
