Watch Dogs is postponed until "at least April 1". That's disappointing, but there seems like plenty of other games for PS4/X1 launch day. I presume that means that game is out of the $10 upgrade program.

On GameStop they are showing a June 2014 release date for WatchDogs now. Of course, that's the game we picked with our PS4 bundle. GameStop is offering us a chance to switch out for Assassin's Creed IV, Battlefield 4, Madden 25, CoD Ghosts, or Killzone 4 for the same price. We can also get the upgrade bundles for Drive Club, Killzone 4 or Knack. We also have the option of just getting the PS4 next month and receiving WatchDogs next year....but we need a game to play before next year so we are trying to decide what to switch to.
The WatchDogs release date is officially "Spring 2014", so I bet they're listing June 2014 as the latest possible date in that window. God bless them if it takes seven extra months to get the game out the door, especially one that people who saw it said looked pretty done.
I've been thinking I'll just sub one open world super power game out for another and play inFamous 3. It's too bad that's not an option for you. I'd have a hard time picking - maybe Knack, but that's only because I'm not a big fan of those franchises. I'm not totally sure about Knack either, but at least it's a pure PS4 game and you get to see what the system can do.
If it makes a difference, Drive Club (or at least a partial version of it) is going to be free for PS+ subscribers, so you may not want that one if you're getting it another way.
The Sony outlet store I pre-ordered with told me they would keep my name (and money!) on file and call me back when bundles and all were determined. Kind of getting concerned that it's less than a month away and they haven't given me a call.
InFamous was my favorite trailer but it's not coming out until next year. That's a good point about Knack; the other ones are all dual PS3/PS4 releases, right? The info about Drive Club helps though!! I can't imagine why Sony outlets of all places wouldn't have information on bundles by now, and they've already billed you. Do you know if they're offering just the consule and game, or will you have the option for an upgraded bundle with an additional controller? They're 2 different price levels on GameStop, so it'd make more sense if they billed you after you picked your bundle!
Edit:well, that's off the list too. Why would they delay so late in the timeline? It's not like they haven't known about the fall 2013 release for months...
The Sony retail outlet originally told me they'd call about bundles when they figured them out (and only billed me a $50 gift card to hold my place in line), but I stopped in today after your post and found out there are no bundles, I'm in line for just a PS4 + 1 controller, but they promise they'll have plenty of games/accessories to buy if we want. We'll see how that goes.
I thought inFamous was launch day - I guess I have to figure out what to get too! The launch day title list does not look as promising because so many of those games are cross promotion and few are exclusive. I think I might end up with Knack myself as long as the reviews don't warn me away.
Knack looks fun! We haven't seen a bad review for it, and that looks way more my speed than Watch Dogs or Battlefield 4 (the current frontrunner replacement). What's warding us off from Knack is that it's an extra $60 from what we have reserved now, because GameStop is only offering it in the upgrade bundle with the extra controller at this point. Sure, that's the retail cost of either the game or second controller, but we don't think we need a second controller immediately, and I'm happy to wait a few months to find one second-hand or on sale. Thanks for that release list, though, I hadn't seen that! That's pretty much going to make Christmas shopping easier!! I also really, really hope none of the new PS4 games pulls the ios-app-only garbage like GTA V. It would also make life easier if Kingdom Hearts 2.5 was ready now, and KHIII was coming next year instead of (probably) 2015!
