Cerny: PS4 Launch Lineup “is Going to be Stronger Than any Prior PlayStation Hardware

With E3 still a little while away, the exact details of the PS4′s launch are a complete mystery – games like Primal Carnage, inFamous: Second Son and Killzone: Shadow Fall are probably going to be there, but past that, who knows?

Speaking to Gamasutra, the PS4′s lead system architect and Knack developer Mark Cerny revealed:

The launch lineup for PlayStation 4 — though I unfortunately can’t give the title count — is going to be stronger than any prior PlayStation hardware. And that’s a result of that familiarity [of hardware design]. (PS4)

Just imagine how many new nextgen titles will be revealed at E3 this year, both from Sony and Microsoft(well maybe not Microsoft as much as Sony but still).

I'm eager to see new IPs that will define nextgen, the way Uncharted, Gears, Heavy Rain, Littlebigplanet, Assassins's Creed etc did with current gen.

I'm hoping the developers blow my mind, pretty certain it will happen.

Sony has made some very wise decisions. I'm looking forward to the PS4 quite a lot.
Jaqen_Hghar  +   364d ago
That title alone? A man likes more than 1 game for launch. Though the attach ratio would be high.
JsonHenry  +   365d ago
I haven't been this excited about a Sony product since the launch of the PS2.
Gamer1982  +   364d ago
Me too the PS3 launch stateside was a disappointment. EU was a lot better thanks to the delay but it still wasnt great. This launch is already looking twice as good. Not just graphically though I'm talking quality.

Wishful thinking is GTA 5 being another game ported to PS4, if it does my social life will be gone.
Jaqen_Hghar  +   364d ago
Out of all the rumored ones a man thinks that has the most credibility. If it gets a PC port like GTA4 then no reason not to put it on the PC like PS4.

Who's camping out for the PS4??

OT:Can't wait going after KZ:SF & Drive Club as my launch titles.Will get the rest of them after a week.
Roper316  +   365d ago
after camping out for the PS2 & PS3 I am going to pass on the camp out & will just preorder from Amazon as soon as they let people do so.

I have so many PS3 games I haven't opened yet that I am in no rush for a new console but I also want to support the PS4 at launch like all previous PS consoles. So the preorder & wait until it shows up at my door works out well for me.
Muerte2494  +   365d ago
This guy..
right there. I don't think I can wait for a second shipment to get my ps4.
Jaqen_Hghar  +   364d ago
A man will pre-order on Amazon since he has student which gets him everything shipped free and there on day 1 for pre-orders.
Nicolee  +   364d ago
last time PS3 midnight launched in London oxford street , they gave away Sony LCD tv for everyone. i am not sure what will happen this time .
SoapShoes  +   365d ago
PS1 didn't have a stellar launch it was ok, PS2's launch sucked, PS3 was ok, PSP was decent, Vita had their best launch so far imo. Not hard to do but I do expect this to blow them all away so far. KZ being a launch title is amazing. I hope Planetside 2 is a launch title too, I don't see why it wouldn't be.
TrendyGamers  +   365d ago
And the PS Vita had a really good one, can't wait!
PSNintyGamer  +   365d ago
Didn't they say that about the PS Vita and PS3?
KwietStorm  +   365d ago
Even *if* they did, what's your point? PS4 comes out *after* both of them.
PSNintyGamer  +   365d ago
The PS Vita launch and PS3 launch were nothing special, so saying that it it's launch lineup is going to be "stronger than any prior playstation hardware" just tells me that it might be slightly better than it's predecessors.
TheUndertaker85  +   365d ago
I dunno but wouldn't it be relevant for both of those as well since the PS3 did have better launch titles than previous PS systems? Did the Vita have better launch titles than previous PS systems before that?
sway_z  +   365d ago
Fighting talk from Mark 'Nice Guy' Cerny.

It really is on tho....I just received an email from MS informing me the Xbox reveal is in 27 days and I can watch it at Xbox.com/Live.

I am so pumped for E3!!!!

*EDIT*

Just to be clear...I am getting PS4 and only PS4 for the foreseeable future. But I still wanna see what 'the other team' are offering.

Yeah, that's the great thing. No matter if someone's a massive Xbox fan, a massive PlayStation fan or a multiplatter, they've got stuff to look forward to

Damn when did Cerny become the lord and savior of PlayStation. He's the lead architect, promoter, and spokesman all in one.

Jek_Porkins  +   365d ago
It needs to be, I remember the PS3's launch was pretty lackluster, although I had some fun with Resistance and the online play was interesting.

It's one thing to promise a great launch lineup, but Nintendo said the same thing about the Wii U and we all know what happened with that.

smashcrashbash  +   365d ago
@PSNintyGamer. What you are saying doesn't make any sense.Because they say the line up will be stronger and you don't think that the PS3 or VITA line up wasn't strong makes you conclude that it will be only slightly better then it's predecessors? So you have already somehow quantified how much stronger the line up will be and which line up they are referring to despite the fact that they said ANY PRIOR PlayStation hardware which includes the PS2 and PS1? Before you jump to negativity try making sense first. If I say I have become stronger then I was before that automatically means that I have only become slightly stronger because I wasn't so strong before?
KentBlake  +   365d ago
For the first time in years, I'm incredibly pumped for E3. Two major consoles at the same time!

I'm getting Ps4 day one, and will wait to see if MS will have a decent amount of good exclusives, and then decide if the new Xbox will find a place in my living room.
BitbyDeath  +   364d ago

Gonna be broke once the PS4 hits :-(

Bring it, this is going to easily be the best Playstation...the first time they've went with traditional/ familiar hardware..you thought they put out a lot of quality titles this gen? Well watch what the devs do this time around where games will be developed easier/quicker.
dcortz2027  +   364d ago
LOL @ all the disagreeing trolls, instead of clicking disagree, respond you cowards!! Sony is going all out with the PS4 to reclaim that number one spot that belongs to the Playstation brand. The PS4 will be a day one purchase for me, I can't wait!! :D

WeskerChildReborned  +   364d ago
If so then i'll be looking forward to the system, hopefully FF Versus 13 will be a launch title.
Maldread  +   364d ago
With Killzone, Drive Club and Infamous ready for launch, it`s hard to argue with him.

I want all those games.

Add Watch Dogs, Battlefield 4, and possibly Diablo 3, i would say they have something good for a lot of genres too :)

ps4 is the next gen console to get hands down! why do some of you not want to get the ps4 with all this good news? i just dont get it as a gamer you should want it.

also yeah maldread really looking forward to infamous the most becuase a next gen open world super hero game with 8 gb of gddr5 ram is gonna be so amazing open world games beneifit greatly from more ram. the game world will be huge and the powers will probably be intertwined with the city like infamous 1 and 2. smoke powers reminds me of captain smoker from one piece. The vice admiral logia devil fruit users who has a seastone jute. and where there is smoke there is fire!

More Sony launch hype. Although I'm sensing a lot of cross plat games with only a few low profile exclusives. It probably wont matter since all the truly high profile games (i.e. New Call of Duty, Destiny, Metal Gear Solid 5, Gran Turismo 6, Assassins Cred 4 ect.) are going to be available on the PS3 and Xbox 360. It's gonna be a tough sell to get people to upgrade and may take some time. I'm expecting it to be at least a year into the PS4 until the first party AAA exclusives start popping up.
