Bloodborne, Driveclub, and The Order also coming.

Until Dawn

Sony Computer Entertainment updated its official Gamescom site today with a list of games it plans on bringing to Gamescom in Cologne next month. And among them, new PlayStation 4 confirmations.

Newly confirmed for the platform include

  • Hustle Kings - VooFoo Studios might have already made Pure Pool for PlayStation 4, but that doesn’t seem to be stopping them from bringing PlayStation 3’s Hustle Kings to the console.
  • Journey - Following Flower and Flow, Thatgamecompany’s third and biggest PlayStation 3 title is coming to PlayStation 4.
  • Nom Nom Galaxy - The latest game from PixelJunk series developer Q-Games. Find details, videos, and screenshots here.
  • PIX the CAT - A fast-paced action game developed for arcades and combining gameplay elements from Snake, Pac-Man, and Bomberman. See gameplay here.
  • Until Dawn - The Supermassive Games-developed PlayStation Move-enabled horror game for PlayStation 3, first announced in 2012 and silent since, is now a PlayStation 4 title.
  • The Unfinished Swan - This one isn’t a surprise. The Giant Sparrow-made first-person puzzle adventure game is also coming to PS Vita, though that version doesn’t seem to be on display at Gamescom.

    Until Dawn is alive, huh? Interesting.

    • Anime10121

      Had to Google it to even remember what it was….

      That begs the question though, does Move work on PS4?

      • Zackasaur

        We already know that it does. c:

        • Anime10121

          I didnt… thats why I asked :P

          Never had a Move, nor any incentive to purchase one, since no one really supported it, and I always prefer more “traditional” gaming controllers anyway…

          • Zackasaur

            There was plenty of support if you were into it, and you can get the controllers rather cheaply today. While there were numerous Move-exclusive titles and DLC releases, a lot of people will swear by Move controls for games like inFamous 2 and BioShock Infinite.

            But I can’t help you in regards to having preferences. :P

            • Anime10121

              I didnt even knoy you could use Move in those two titles :P

              But at least in Infamous’ case, I never got into the series enough to care, and Bioshock Infinite is still untouched in my backlog…

              • Zackasaur

                Omfg, go play BioShock Infinite.

                • Anime10121

                  I want to… but back log to lonk! Can not defeat :v

          • Elvick

            People always say that, but Move was supported in a TON of games. It didn’t have tons of exclusives, but it don’t think that was necessary personally. If you wanted motion controls, you’d like them exclusive or no.

            What’s fun is people whined about the exclusives.

      • Solomon_Kano

        That’s been the case since the start. The Playroom used Move.

  • novurdim

    Where the hell is oreshika.

    • Unretributed

      You’re already on the Internet… It would literally take you less than 10 seconds to use Google…

      • novurdim

        It would probably take even less for you to explain your post.

        • Zackasaur

          His post seems pretty self-explanatory. It’s not super helpful and certainly a bit snarky, but he’s basically just telling you this:

          http://bit.ly/WQROF3

          To be of a little more help, it just releases in Japan a week ago. We don’t have a new update on the western release.

          • novurdim

            And what is the point of that? I’m obviously asking why Sony ignores Oreshika and doesn’t bring it to the second big game exhibition in a row, it’s not so hard to translate a demo, my snarky but a bit silly boy.

            • Zackasaur

              lol You’re attacking me? Unretributed is the one who gave you the snark. I just tried to explain it. :P

              Perhaps your original post was a bit unclear. I suppose Sony simply haven’t finished up an English demo and didn’t feel that it would be a priority. *shrug* It doesn’t affect my purchasing intentions.

              • novurdim

                I’m not attacking you, but since he doesn’t bother to answer and you have upvoted him anyway…

                >Perhaps your original post was a bit unclear.
                Yeah, “where the hell is Oreshika” in a “Sony Gamescom lineup”-thread is an extremely puzzling post.

                • Zackasaur

                  Perhaps posing it as a question was a bit of snark on your end, though. I mean, you’re not really asking anything any of us can answer.

                  It might have been better to just express disappointment via statement. Were you hoping to go hands-on with it?

                  • novurdim

                    Some questions are rhetorical and don’t demand neither snark nor answer.

                    >Were you hoping to go hands-on with it?
                    I’ve been thinking about it. But foremost it demonstrates the weird indifference that Sony shows about its own almost 1-st party game which comes out in less than 5 months. We see plenty of coverage on Freedom Wars but journalists can’t get their hands on oreshika in any official way. I simply don’t like this kind of handling.

                    • Zackasaur

                      Yes, I can agree that I would like to see the game awarded a bigger spotlight. It deserves the chance to shine amongst more than a niche audience which already wants it.

            • Anime10121

              It isnt obvious yet? Western Sony Branches dont care about Vita!

              http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_GpIqc5vZK3c/TLwIoefouEI/AAAAAAAB1qM/TDBu_mSoc_4/s1600/10.gif

  • Unretributed

    Hurray for more last gen ports! Glad I bought a PS4!

    • xkumo

      It’s not like these are AAA games being ported that take away time and resources for other games. These are mostly indie games that take little effort to bring over and are an addition rather than something they’re trying to sell the system on like TLOU.

      • Unretributed

        That’s why I said “Hurray!” And was excited.

        It’s not I was being sarcastic or anything.

      • Zackasaur

        The Last of Us Remastered didn’t consume any unique resources, either, since Naughty Dog have simply grown as a studio to handle more workload. Uncharted 4 got zero delay for The Last of Us Remastered to happen, and it’s awesome that it is happening. A majority of PS4 owners haven’t even gotten to play what may be gaming’s biggest achievement so far. Plus, I want to buy it for the impressive upgrades. :3

        People don’t seem to understand how resource management works in the game industry… Remasters benefit sequels and new games by drawing in more fans and capital. They also benefit players who want the upgrade or haven’t played the game in the past. They don’t hurt a single thing. It’s a complete positive, not a zero-sum game.

    • Anime10121

      I agree…hopefully things pick up as far as original software goes next year.

      • Zackasaur

        Original software for PlayStation consoles basically picks up every year in sequence. It’s a trend.

        But the PS4 has had the strongest start of any of them, I would say. That’s a pretty great sign for the pace of what is to come.

        • Anime10121

          I can agree with that. This probably is the best start a Playstation console has had yet, but even still, pickings are rather slim for me… But I bought the thing based on the tradition that it DEFINITELY gets better as time goes on, so I aint THAT disappointed, as PS3’s launch (bought the 20GB version) was FAR FAR worse!

          • Zackasaur

            A good console is always a long-term investment. c:

            I mean, god damn, look at the PS3’s last few years. Hell, it still has good content releasing.

    • http://www.psthc.fr ExTrooperBrenTurner

      Well, you’re also glad you’ll be able to play Alien Isolation, Bloodborne (I said BLOODBORNE, man !), DriveClub, Far Cry 4, LittleBigPlanet 3, The Order 1886, Project CARS and a good bunch of indies. There are dozens of games for everyone, so yeah, you should be glad you bought a PS4.

      • Zackasaur

        This person gets it.

      • Unretributed

        Alien Isolation needs to come out RIGHT NOW

    • Zackasaur

      Not a single remaster has had any negative impact on the flow of any new games. Hell, the PS4 has a much faster early flow of new games than the PS3 did, in addition to a great collection of remastered content.

      This is a positive with no caveats, no matter how much tinfoil one wears.

      • Unretributed

        Tinfoil? Maybe you should read my other post?

        • Zackasaur

          If you were being genuine, then my apologies. xD

          Both posts come across as extremely sarcastic/cynical, but the internet can do that… In which case, you might want to clarify more carefully just to avoid the confusion.

          With dumb posts like Quetzalcoatl9999’s going around, people are unfortunately already braced for unjustified negativity, myself included.

  • Zackasaur

    Oh, HELL yes. I’ve been begging for Journey on PS4.

    And I’m glad to see that Until Dawn switched to PS4, as well. c:

  • Six

    I hope they bring some new first-party titles. I couldn’t care less about Media Molecule, but I’m really interested in the RPG GG is supposed to be making.

    • Zackasaur

      We know they have an onslaught of first-party games in development. I mean, we always did know that, considering that their first-party is massive.

      The question is how close some of those games are to release… Sony lately have not wanted to announce games too early, like they tended to do last gen. I mean, look at Bloodborne… It’s supposed to be well under a year away!

      Personally, I was never bothered by really early game announcements… But, judging by the comments I see online, I’m probably just abnormally patient.

      • Anime10121

        Its a good strategy to go by! I do like that…but it makes it kinda hard when the only two announced 1st party games you’re interested in, are the ones the furthest out :P

        • Zackasaur

          I know which studios I follow the most, so I have no shortage of excitement just because projects haven’t been formally announced. I know that I’m excited for MM’s new game, for Quantic Dream’s new game, for GG’s new game, etc.

          And then that hype is all background excitement around the already-announced hits that I really want, like The Order: 1886, Bloodborne, Uncharted 4, LittleBigPlanet 3, inFamous: First Light, DriveClub, and plenty of downloadable hits.

          You’re probably right about it being a good strategy, but it doesn’t stop people from complaining and looking silly in the process. :P

          • Anime10121

            I dont necessarily think the complaints are silly, even if we know each studio’s working on PS4 related content, that doesnt give people much to be excited about if they are years off and people dont know anything about them…

            But thus far, the only First party games I’m looking forward to are Uncharted 4 and Bloodborne (still iffy on The Order). But then, I’ve said this before, I’m not a Playstation fan because of Sony’s games themselves… I’m waiting on the Third Parties (outside of EA sports, Assassin’s Creed, and Call of Duty) to hit full stride and start releasing content! Third parties are the reason I regard Playstation as the best consoles/handhelds to have!

            • Zackasaur

              Eh, I think illegitimate complaints are silly, and that’s what they are.

              Sony definitely has my favourite first-party, in addition to the best third-party support. Their platforms are no-brainers for me.

              But I always get good games on my Nintendo handhelds as well — almost all of them being from Nintendo or Square-Enix. lulz So those are also no-brainers. And then I get Nintendo consoles primarily for a few first-party multiplayer franchises that I play with friends. That’s too fun a tradition to turn down.

              I always end up getting the Xbox platforms gifted to me and use them for a few exclusives. I love Lost Odyssey, for example. I’m not really sure they’d be worth it to me if they weren’t gifts, though… Not while I’m paying for expenses around a Ph.D., at least .:P

              And then I have a gaming PC that I mostly use for indie games and some mods. xD

              I suppose I might as well also mention that I sometimes game on my Android phone, since I turned this into a spiel about how I use my platforms. I keep a nice library of JRPGs on my phone, along with a few minigames.

              EDIT: Holy cow, I forgot two great games in my previous post… Added them. :x

  • DesmaX

    Well, Journey is a no-brainer

    • Zackasaur

      Indeed!

      flOw and Flower were both offered free to people who had already purchased on another platform, so I am hoping for the same nice treatment for Journey… Though I would rebuy Journey in a heartbeat. I still love to pull out the Journey art book.

  • http://twitter.com/M_Demolish Demolish

    wait minute Journey & until down for ps4?

    Ow I’m So so Happy Now :D

  • Quetzalcoatl9999

    So PS3 indies being ported to ps4, multiplats and the only interesting exclusive Bloodborne

    mediocre/10

    • BtShadowX

      Well, on the bright side, at least it has multiplats.

    • shogunknight

      #ps4hasnogreatgames

  • xkumo

    No Shadow of the Beast ):

    • Zackasaur

      Not hands-on for the public, at least.

    • Elvick

      Hope it’s still a thing.

  • Zackasaur

    Has anyone here tried Nuclear Throne? Any personal impressions?

    • Alos88

      There’s a demo online
      .http://vlambeer.com/3/
      (It’s Wasteland Kings, the third one down.)

      • Zackasaur

        Well, damn. I had no idea.

        Thanks!

  • shogunknight

    Nice lineup, looking forward to bloodborne and the order gameplay, full gameplay…

    Edit: from the page i see morpheus, so i guess there will be a keynote on it. Probably talk of the price or release window

  • articuzwolf

    well is it the same as their presentation lineup? cos I’ll be very disappointed

    kinda hoping they show some of “Everybody’s gone to the rapture”, GG “open world RPG”, Media Molecule “unannounced PS4 title” and SSM “unannounced PS4 title”

    • shogunknight

      Its not, its their booth lineup. But im sure some of these games would still be mentioned in the conference

    • Zackasaur

      This is their booth line-up. All of these can be played by attendees.

      They might release a partial conference lineup later, but they always try to have surprises.

  • pekot

    Well , im glad that I missed Journey and GTA5 on ps3 .

    • Anime10121

      REALLY wish I would have held off on GTA5 until now… oh well, it was still a fantastic experience! Look forward to it, as I thought it was the best entry in a LONG while!

  • http://nichegamer.net/ bf313

    Hopefully there will be some good surprises but otherwise this is really disappointing, you’re slowly losing me Sony.

    • shogunknight

      7, 999, 999 to go :P

  • Martian Wong

    Final Fantasy XV is my most anticipated game. Where are you? Maybe they will reveal freedom wars release date.

  • RSene

    Can’t find the list on the website where is it?

  • Comandante Bushido

    Vita needs moar bewbs

  • badmoogle

    From those lists i only care for Bloodborne and Freedom Wars.I’m not expecting any big surprises either.

  • Elvick

    No Journey for Vita? ;_;

    • Zackasaur

      I didn’t even think about that…

      • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

        Might be the same situation as Unfinished Swan, whereas a PS Vita version exists, but they’re only showing the PS4 version at Gamescom.

        • Zackasaur

          I was just pondering that as well. It would be a bit strange for Journey to buck the trend they have going.

  • OverlordZetta

    I like how they had to pad the Vita list with half a dozen games that have already released/will be released by the time of the event.

    Not that this isn’t true for the PS4 list either, but it’s a bigger list to compensate.

    On the bright side, this might be the first real attention off the blog SSD is getting in the West. Can’t wait for all the comments from people who had no idea it existed/released thanks to the lack of marketing.

  • http://Xcite79.1up.com/ Keegs79

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Journey is a Playstation Plus title. Regardless having the PS3 version, it would be awesome to experience on the PS4.

  • BlueCereal

    Best to expect nothing here. We’ll be lucky if even one new game is announced.

    • Carlos Luis Ayala

      Don’t be so sure last year we got Ryme Shadow of the Beast and Murasaki Baby.

      • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

        Heck, checking in on Ryme would make me very happy :)

        But I’m kinda with BlueCereal – I suspect a few (probably downloadable) titles here at Gamescom at best, but Sony’s got to be waiting for TGS for some big reveals. HOPEFULLY. They really need to show off some killer Japanese games for the console.

  • GODDUKEMONEXA

    where is my GRIM FANDANGO?

  • Ping92

    Wtf?! Really, that name ?!

  • xkumo

    Omg, you took his picture and changed his named around. Hahaha, so funny. It doesn’t make you look like an immature child at all crying about nothing.

  • novurdim

    man, we can say that bushido is famous now.
