First, here’s everything that’s not a PlayStation 4 Japanese launch title:
  • Chou no Doku: Hana no Kusari Taishou Tsuyakoi Ibun (PSV) – 9/9/7/7 [32/40]
  • Kuroko no Basuke: Shouri e no Kiseki (3DS) – 8/8/8/8 [32/40]
  • Shin Koihime Musou: Otome Taisen Sangokushi Engi (PS3) – 7/7/7/6 [27/40]
  • Strider (PS3) – 9/8/8/9 [34/40]
  • Yakuza: Ishin (PS3) – 9/9/10/10 [38/40]

And now, the PlayStation 4 Japanese launch titles:
  • Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag (PS4) – 9/9/9/9 [36/40]
  • Call of Duty: Ghosts (PS4) – 9/9/9/9 [36/40]
  • Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends (PS4) – 9/10/9/9 [37/40]
  • Killzone: Shadow Fall (PS4) – 8/8/8/8 [32/40]
  • Knack (PS4) – 6/7/8/7 [28/40]
  • NBA 2K14 (PS4) – 9/9/9/9 [36/40]
  • Nobunaga’s Ambition: Creation (PS4) – 10/9/9/8 [36/40]
  • Resogun (PS4) – 9/8/9/7 [33/40]
  • Strider (PS4) – 9/8/8/9 [34/40]
  • Tomb Raider (PS4) – 9/9/9/10 [37/40]
  • Yakuza: Ishin (PS4) – 9/10/10/10 [39/40]

In related magazine news, the next issue of Famitsu will release two days before PlayStation 4′s February 22 in Japan. It will contain a 35-page PlayStation 4 buyer’s guide and 44-page PlayStation 4 software catalog.

That Knack score is one of the lowest I've ever seen from Famitsu. I thought the game was just OK but I thought it would do better in Japan.

Can't wait for Strider.

Some of those scores are a somewhat generous, but then this is Famitsu. But Resogun deserved better.

EDIT: To be fair, two of the reviewers gave Resogun 9/10, and I can appreciate it's not everyone's cup of tea.

Knack at 28/40 gives it a 70% so Yosp = vindicated.

All in all, pretty favorable reviews across the board. Let's shoppers know that they really can't go wrong with any game they buy for their new ps4 and that even Knack may appeal to some more than others.

I am one of those who think its great
