We've expended quite a largenumber of words talking about the PlayStation 4 as a piece of consumer hardware. In the end, though, a game system's value comes down not to its hardware or its features or its interface, but to the new games it can run.
To that end, we wanted to share some in-depth impressions of the exclusive-to-the-PS4 titles that were made available this week alongside the system's launch. These aren't full reviews since we haven't had a chance to finish any of these games yet, but we feel we've spent enough time with each to get a good feel for how they play and how they make use of the PS4's power. Here, then, are our impressions of four launch titles, in descending order of how much you should want them.
