The Daily Five: Things to Do While Waiting on PS4 Games

January 14, 2014 | By | No Comments

Go to almost any video game message board on the Internet and you are likely to see at least one person talking about how there are “no games” on the PlayStation 4, lamenting their choice to adopt the system early in its lifecycle. While most of us know there are plenty of games available for the PS4, maybe those that think otherwise can take solace in this list of things to do while waiting on the PS4 to finally get some games.

Binge Watch TV


Sure, you could have done this on your PS3 just as well, but you already shelled out the $400 for a PS4, so why not use it instead? The PS4 has plenty of options for some heavy duty binge watching. Why not watch every season of the relaunch of Doctor Who on Amazon Instant Video? Maybe catch up on Supernatural on Netflix? You could always wait until next month and watch every WrestleMania with the WWE Network. With so many options, we’re sure you can find something to watch while you wait for Infamous: Second Son and Watch Dogs.

Discover New Music


Have you used that one month trial of Music Unlimited that came with your PS4? Odds are that you haven’t. If you really don’t have anything to play, why not use that trial and play some music instead? This would be an excellent time to discover some music you wouldn’t normally listen to while refreshing yourself on the old favorites. Even better, Music Unlimited is available to take on the go via smartphone apps or the PlayStation Vita if you have to leave the house.

Become a Multiplayer God


If you’ve really finished every single player game available for the PS4, take this time to become a multiplayer legend. Whether it be Battlefield 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Killzone: Shadow Fall, or even Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, there are plenty of multiplayer matchups to be found. With an hour or two a day, there is a great chance that your kill/death ratio can grow to be envied by all. Plus, all of these games have new maps and modes being put out pretty regularly, meaning there is always something fresh to do. Plus, if you can get a group of friends to join in on the action, a mundane deathmatch becomes a party full of laughing, trash talk, and a lot of fun.
