PlayStation’s vice-president of Worldwide Studios has spoken with considerable confidence about the potential strength of the PS4′s range of games at launch – claiming that it will be Sony’s greatest-ever line-up.
Hype over 9 million!!!
It's over 9000!!!!!!
wicked. i cant wait to buy a ps4 on day one. i was thinking of getting a physical copy of killzone 4 but now i think ill buy it digitally. with what sony did on ps3 ps2 and ps1 i can definitely believe them on this because they delivered a lot of quality exclusive titles and third party titles. with the features and power of ps4 its going to be very hard for others to compete especially when sony has the most 1st party dev studios making a lot of AAA titles. ps4 is the future
Eh, Sony didn't learn from their mistakes, did they? They should spread their games at least 1-2 moths apart to prevent drought. Not to mention less-blockbuster-esque games will get more attention that way. I can already see DriveClub being overshadowed by a Killzone, Watchdogs etc just because they are more wanted by most consumers. See what happened with Wipeout 2048 - despite being an awesome game with phenomenal graphics it was overlooked because Uncharted Golden Abyss got all the attention.
He says "Hype over 9 million!!!" And you come back with just 9000? Come on, man... You're supposed to try to top the other person, not go lower.
Over 9000 can be anything over 9000 so technically it can be over 9 million?
They need consistent flow of games after launch. Not just a great launch line-up.
Launch titles MotorStorm and Resistance went on to sell a lot and gained a large fanbase and recognition. WipEout HD was a gem, but it was also a network title that was praised.
As a company you should support your console's launch fabulously and then keep that momentum going over the following years.
I'm buying Driveclub over Killzone and Watch Dogs.
Let's hope they do have a stellar lineup because if they don't the media will be all over them. They need to have a constant flow as seen by the sparse support Vita is getting after it too have a strong start.
I think your getting Sony mixed up with Nintendo
I have the feeling they will limit the Ps4 to 1 console per account.. For this reason i will buy hard copies, otherwise digital is great.
DriveClub is the reason I want a PS4 day 1, now the icing on the cake for me would be at E3 we get an RPG/JRPG announced to be available at launch as well.
I would expect it to the games are what they concentrated on this conference, which is almost like a first in the industry. I think them showing kzshadowfll right off the bat was the best decision they could make and definitely makes up for the kz2 fiasco of 06 hope the come with more new ips though
Some people don't know or look at the video. I immediately knew what you were referring to without even clicking on the video. Gosh we're nerdy ;)
I don't think that is a hard goal to reach. I can't remember the PS1 line up, for the PS2 I got SSX and Tekken Tag and I got the PS3 4 months after release here in Europe, but the launch titles didn't do much for me. I did get both Motorstorm and RFOM which were launch titles here in EU. I don't think any system picks up pace until around a year in. Wii-U has had the strongest line up from what I can remember, but the tech is so old that it is understandable and expected. Killzone would be a great launch title for me. I think Sony is really going to come right out the gate and hit us with a brilliant line up.
Even if they releases 10 good exclusives the so called "gaming" journalism will still find ways to bash it...
PS2 Launch was pretty good in my opinion. Off the top of my head I remembered getting Dead or Alive 2, Smuggler Run, Ready to Rumble, and Time Splitters within the first month or two. So far the only thing we know for sure is Killzone, and maybe Watchdog. I hope he is right though, can't wait to see...
Being a neutral fanbody i want it to have a crazy line up just so microsoft can respond and do the same .
My excitement constantly grows...
I freakin hope so. Though Sony seems to be making a lot of claims early on. I'm hoping they don't back fire at launch.
Game over.... Ps2 era is back!!!
I want an RPG, not necessarily a JRPG, but a massive RPG from the East or West. Deep Down will do and D3 will be around I guess. But since this gent is mostly talking about "1st party" output in the interview, I'd like to see a Wild Arms, LoD, Demons Souls sequel (Sony own that IP, Dark Souls is a different story) or even Everquest Next. Rarely, if ever, does a system launch with an RPG. I'm struggling to think of a case where that wasn't true (360 with Oblivion?). And I mean AT launch, not "launch window", which is always a bit of a moving target with these console makers.
360 did not launch w/ ES4. I want the PS4 to launch w/ Fallout 4. Bethesda has been working on it for a long while and have stated it is for next-gen.
Thats what was said about the Vita and look what happened there.....
Vita was their best launch. Then no games came came months after the the launch. The launch period however had plenty of titles including some of its best games so far such as Uncharted Golden Abyss and Lumines. PS4 will likely have Killzone at launch and because it's a home console, it will get a lot more third party support than Vita does.
What happened was that the Vita DID have the strongest lineup ever. Third party support hasn't been what it should have been, but the library is still solid, thanks in large part to the launch lineup. Nice try at trolling, though. Well, not really.
Let me hype up the PS4 Launch to remind people, of what can possibly come out this year. Killzone ShadowFall Drive Club The Witness Watchdogs Infamous Second Son(please Sony) Uncharted 4(hopefully) The Last Guardian(hopefully) Final Fantasy Versus 13(hopefully) Modern Warfare 4(obvious) Third party lineup More New Ips This can possibly be the best launch ever! Heck the best holiday season period! Don't forget what Microsoft plan for Xbox Next, and Valve can do with Steambox. I already made my mind up, based on what PS3 did for me. It had more exclusives that show the power of the system, plus they were some of the best games ever made. Uncharted 1,2,3(greatness) God of War 3, Killzone 2 and 3, Infamous 1 and 2, Heavy Rain, Demon Souls(my favorite PS3 game) and so much more. Gonna play The Last of Us after my visit to E3, can't wait.
If it has next-gen Battlefield and Fifa then it will convince me to buy it early if i can rather than waiting til this time next year .I jus hope here in Europe we don't have to wait til after Christmas .
I would imagine BF4 will be there. BF3 can out around the same time in 2011 and Dice has began showing BF4 behind closed doors. In that case I'll be grabbing BF4 and Driveclub before anything.
LOL. Great list, but I don't see FFVersus, Uncharted 4 or The Last Guardian being on there. Uncharted 4 just because nothing has been shown. TLG and FFXIII Versus because they have been delayed so much that Sony nor Square wish to was more money porting. Other then that, I do see it being a really, really strong launch. If they can really get Infacmous 3 out by then, they might have one of the best launch line ups in gaming history. I say this because MS isn't going to have a Halo at launch, maybe a Forza. I also don't see BF4 making a launch this year, but me being a HUGE BF fan, I would sure want to. Though I'm playing BF3 on PC (the whole 64players and of course just amazing graphcis) I'll only get it on PS4 if the graphics are the same and the MP is the same. If anything is different, back to PC for me. (for BF at least)
Battlefield 4 and Fallout 4. These 2 will make me buy an PS4
I wouldnt count on UC4 coming out, that'll be saved for next year to fill the post launch dip that all consoles go through. Look at the WiiU, decent launch then nothing for months. Uncharted will be aiming for a summer 2014 release I think. Cod wont be on next gen this year but Battlefield 4 might. FFXIII versus is dead, if Square Enix had anything they'd have shown something at the Playstation Conference other than that shocking performance we had. Last Guardian has to happen, it cant drag on much longer surely. Add Watch dogs to the list. Im thinking theres a chance of Last of Us or Beyond Two Souls having PS4 ports done as well. @kudak EA suggested that there wouldnt be any sports titles at launch because of the timing and people would buy the PS3 Fifa in October rather than wait for the next gen version.
I doubt your three hopeful games will release this year........ But keep hope alive
PS4 is looking good..I am super excited for this year E3.
I can't wait to see what they have at E3.They have so many studios that haven't shown what they are doing yet. Sony Santa Monica and ND show your work please.
and Quantic Dream
and Polyphony Digital
and Media Molecule
Oh yeah lets not forget them too.
Media Molecule showed the tech demo for LittleBigPlanet at Sony's event. IMO it is one of the most impressive demos i've ever seen and I have faith in MM that they can pull it off.
I'm inclined to believe the hype in regards to this matter since this console is an essentially suped up version of the PS3. It's already been reported that GTAV & Watchdogs are releasing on both generations of consoles. This essentially means that the amount of work the developers are required to do to port their work to the newer consoles is substantially less than previous generations, which dealt with drastic different architectures (CELL+transition to HD) and other significant technological advances.
I think every console maker is obligated to say this every time they launch a new console. Would they sell many units if they openly announced "our launch lineup is okay, could be better"?
I have no doubt they'll have an awesome launch lineup. I just hope they don't release everything at launch, then have nothing for the months after. Gotta keep that momentum going.
The gaming industry is getting very exciting right now.
Until they make you pay $60 for 40% of a game.
good lineup and a good price will end any type of competition. i'm buying a PS4 there is no doubt about it. i can imagine myself playing that Killzone multiplayer with Move and share kills with friends!!!
imma buy the 1st day it comes out thats if the lines arent hella long :P
Ill go to the midnight launch as i do with every console i get.
*High Five :D
Vita had great launch games too.
My guesses for launch titles or within lauch window are: PLANETSIDE 2 * https://www.planetside2.com... Killzone Shadow Fall Drive Club Watch Dogs NBA 2K14 WWE 2K14 Madden 25* Next Gen Call of Duty Knack Diablo III The Witness Some PlayStation 4 EYE/Dualshock 4 Mini Games Ridge Racer *I'm 50/50 on that Infamous Second Son Some INDIE games
The PS4 version of Ridge Racer should have an exclusive opening. When the title screen comes up, it should have Kaz's voice "Riiiiiidge Raaacer." That alone would make it sell.
I can see why not, it has an amazing line of games for the launch, just imagine what Naughty Dog will bring to the table lol!
People who are against a strong PS4 line up and then mentioning the Vita are wrong. The PS4 is going to get supported because it's the next line of consoles. Whatever comes on the PS4 will also go to the PC, so it's win win for developers. The Vita had a lot of games after launch from Sony and some third party developers, but it's the lack of third party support for the Vita, not from Sony, is why there's such a sparse line up of games. At the same time, I don't think Sony should put all their best titles at launch for the PS4. It'll get the PS4 to sell for sure, but there will be so many titles that people may or may not be interested in that overall sales will suffer rather than if a couple games here and there were released by themselves. Let's say by some chance you were interested in every launch title to come out. Doubtful, but if by some chance you were, you'd only want to spend so much money regardless. I wouldn't want to spend $1000 on 10 launch titles and the console. I'd purchase the ones I'm most interested in and then wait for the rest to drop in price while I'm finishing off those and possibly other titles in my backlog. If I was to get it day one, which may or may not happen(good chance though as I'm interested in Infamous and Watch Dogs.)
dam my wallet
I'm going to be so freakin broke. Uggghhh
but isnt it exciting :))))))
Yes it is XD, it'll be worth it
If The Last Guardian & VS 13 are Launch title's Game Over!
When the new systems come out, I'm gonna have a terrible case of insomnia.
I love Sony but they usually have a pretty weak launch line-up. Its not until later on that their consoles really start to shine, but when they shine oh you bet your ass they SHINE!! Anyway, depending on the launch games and the price I may get this day one.....
infamous killzone driveclub knack the witness gta5 watchdogs destiny deep down diablo 3 alot of these are games are 30, 50, or even 100 hour experiences. and they all look to be AA or AAA. we wont be having to wait for games
what do you expect him to say? Ahaahahhhhhhhh!!!!
