    Hi great article, I’ve got my PS4 already pre-ordered and can’t wait. What games will you be getting? I’m unsure on AC4 and have wrote an article on why I’m unsure here would love your thoughts 🙂

      Thanks for the read and comment. I also have a system on pre-order with Watch Dogs, The Order, inFamous, and Destiny on deck as well. As other launch window titles, I haven’t quite decided yet, though I will be returning to DCU:O at some point.

      Oh, and Black Flag hasn’t really won me over yet either.
