A new video marking out the top 10 upcoming exclusives for the PlayStation 4 has gone live, courtesy of our friends over at GamesHQMedia.
The video is an exciting collage of some of the most talked about, highly anticipated and unknown games coming out for the PlayStation 4 this year. This includes well known exclusives like Deep Down, the free-to-play game coming out later this year by Capcom. Sadly, the game's expected Japanese roll out at the end of February isn't going to happen and instead, gamers will find out more about the game this summer, as noted on DualShockers.
There's also the speedy and visually enticing arcade-racer coming out from Evolution Studios, you know what I'm talking about... Driveclub. The optically spectacular sim-cade is briefly showcased in all its near photo-realistic splendor before paving the way for a few more equally anticipated games, such as artistically inspired platform adventure game Rime and the newly cemented 1080p at 30fps werewolf hunting game, The Order 1886.
The top two games to round out the video are inFamous: Second Son, a game so sexually charged that GameStop Italy had to start handing out condoms for it, and the unannounced Uncharted game from Naughty Dog. I think that's a bit pre-mature given that we have no info on the game and I'm highly doubtful that Sony would bust out the big gun so early in the lifespan of the PS4. I mean, it's not like there's a ton of competition for this fall in the competing camps where they would need Uncharted so soon. Allegedly, Halo 5 has been pushed back to 2015 and Halo 2: Anniversary Edition is stepping up to take its place.
Nevertheless, the games on the list that completely took me by surprise were Velocity X2 and Lily Bergamo... especially Lily Bergamo. It was one of those games that slipped well under the radar but looks like it could be a sparkling dash of Asura's Wrath meets Naruto. I mean, hey, if you can find a way to combine those two games together with a cohesive enough story to keep and maintain the interest of the average gamer, I'm all on board.
Still, this is a forward looking list, and we all know any single one of these games – with the highly unlikely case of inFamous: Second Son – being hit with the delay hammer that could just as easily push these 2014 exclusives well into (and possibly beyond) the 2015 barrier.
At least for now, this video gives gamers a little bit of something-something to drool over as they wait for the big dogs to get out of the pen later on throughout the year.
