Thinking about picking up two games today for my (new) PS4. Right now I'm deciding between the following, would like some thoughts;
  • Battlefield 4
  • Need for Speed Rivals
  • Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag
  • Trials Fusion ($20 digital version)
  • other (open to suggestions)
BF4 - I loved the single player, I prefer playing BF4 multiplayer over Ghosts too - pleanty of maps and modes to keep you busy out of the box too.

NFS - It's not a bad game but personally I think its a bit odd and you hit a point where its like you are only playing it in 15 minute stints - I'm normally a big NFS fan but if you want cars on PS4 then this is your only choice.

AC4 - If you haven't played it then get this, brilliant game and will keep you entertained for ages - MP is really good fun too.

Trials - Not played it yet

Suggestion - inFAMOUS is pretty good fun, reminds me a lot of the first Crackdown but without the cool cars.

I'm definitely leaning towards BF4 right now. I could never get into the Assassin's Creed games, wanted too, but couldn't. BUT, AC4 looks really good. As for NFS Rivals, I've heard very mixed reviews, and while I want a racing game, I'm not going to spend $50 on one that is mediocre. I can wait for F1 2014, or GRID 3, or ToCA 4 ;)

Trials Fusion looks like it would be a fun time waster, and for $20, I may pick it up, we'll see. I would like to get inFAMOUS Second Son too, so I think I'm looking at BF4 and ISS. Thanks everyone!

Problem with Rivals is you need the game connected to the net everyone time if you want less boring experience.

I wouldn't mind that, but I want something where races last longer than 15 minutes. Gran Turismo or Forza, for example.

Battlefield 4. I've got no one to play with currently.

Speaking of which, I've got an American disc copy of the game that I'm selling if you want it.

How much and where would it be shipping from?

You know what? It would probably be more economically efficient to buy it in Canada. I was going to sell it for ~$35 plus postage. FedEx quoted postage at $160, UPS at $320. Cheapest I found was Aus Post Airmail at $15, but would take an absolute age to get there.

Yeah...I appreciate the offer, but yeah, might as well just buy it here. Might pick it up today if I can find an EB Games that is open (today is a holiday in Canada).

EDIT: if we aren't already, add me on PSN. Same name as on here.

Well I'm open to you taking the $320 UPS offer.  :P

And public holidays. Fun fact, it's illegal to open in Victoria on Good Friday, Christmas and before midday on April 25th.

EDIT: I will add you first thing in the morning.

I have Black Flag on PS4 and it is incredible, well worth the money. I've played 18 hours so far and i'm at 49% completion.

Trials Fusion looks really good, i'm definitely going to pick it up soon. Hopefully it'll come out on PS Vita as well! 

And i'd recommend Second Sun, although i haven't got it yet. But from what i've seen it is awesome!

Know what you mean about not getting into the AC games Dustin, but AC4 is so different to the previous ones, and that's a good thing!
If they'd called it 'Pirate Simulator' it would have been a more accurate name lol, there's still the usual Assassin type missions and stuff but the character you play as is more or less a pirate rather than an assassin. Plus he reminds me a little of Chris Hemsworth playing James Hunt in Rush :p And the gameplay itself is just brilliant, far more engaging than any of the previous ones and it'll just fully suck you in :)

Black Flag is AMAZING!! I really recommend the game. I also prefer Battlefield to the newer COD games, but instead of those 2, you should also try Infamous. Looks amazing! :D

Need some opinions guys! What do I get out of these 3? I've played Ghosts and liked it, got a demo of DR3 I haven't tried yet but didn't much like 1 or 2. And Ryse I have no idea about...

Call of Duty: Ghosts
Dead Rising 3
Ryse: Son of Rome

Might as well add Titanfall to that list too.

I'd go with COD or Titanfall if you like shooters. I would probably lean more towards COD: Ghosts considering there are more people online for that I believe.

As for me, I'm picking up Battlefield 4 and Assassin's Creed IV on PS4 today. I *really* want a racing game, but I might change AC4 to NFS: Rivals at the last minute, we'll see.

If it was my money I'd go Titanfall. No Forza on the list?

I ordered Titanfall :p After playing the Dead Rising 3 demo (and realizing it's just as rubbish as 1 and 2) that and Ryse are the only ones I haven't played, but Titanfall looks more fun :)

Don't change!!!!! NFS will be utter rubbish compared to AC4! Just hold out on racing for now, you'll be better of to dude :p

It's pretty funny that all the good PS4 games are coming out nearly a year after the console came out lol

Forza 5 was my first priority :D I bought my 360 because of Forza 2, and the X1 for Forza 5, so far I love it :)
