EBGames said if you preorder now you're very unlikely to get one before early 2014. So yeah, the 'launch line-up' is probably not a bad place to start as that covers to March 2014.

I believe these are the launch titles though:

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag
Battlefield 4
Call of Duty: Ghosts
DC Universe Online
DriveClub
FIFA 14
Just Dance 2014
Killzone Shadow Fall
Knack
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes
Madden NFL 25
Minecraft
NBA 2K14
NBA Live 14
Playroom
Skylanders: Swap Force
Tiny Brains
Warframe
War Thunder
Watch Dogs

I feel somewhat relieved that I didn't pre-order the PS4 at launch, instead opting for Xbox One and PS4 later down the track. Both systems are looking mighty fine though in terms of exclusive content, though today's conference for Sony kind of pushed the whole "lets just pull PC indie titles over and claim exclusive".

It is going to be a very interesting next-gen.

Pre-ordered both last month through JB. No guarentee of a PS4 console at launch, have gone into a queue. They said pre-orders for PS4 are way above xbox right now.

Yeah, I'm still going to get a PS4 but I not so concerned about getting one at launch anymore, there isn't much on that list I'd want to get outside of AC4 and Watch Dogs (which I'll just get on XBox One).
