Sony Comments On Lack of AAA Titles For PS4: "Perception Issue, 2015 Great For Core Players & More"

Playstation 4 is selling like a hot cakes, recently at GamesCom 2014, Sony announced that PS4 worldwide sales has crossed 10 million units. However, critics and fanboys have still tagged it as a "Console With More Indie Games" all because of lack of AAA titles, especially during upcoming Holiday Season. (PS4)

"Starting with Destiny, it'll really begin to take off."
That's very true. From September onwards every month is filled with interesting games until at least March. Up to now I think both next-gen consoles had a pretty weak lineup but remember that the first year of every new console is/was pretty rough.

If you don't care about Destiny there's not much else apart from Diveclub for this year. 2015 is where it's at

Sony always delivers not only quantity but quality and diversity, sure it may take a little more time but I would sooner that than rushing games to market.

One things for sure when the floodgates open and their first party studios start pumping out their wares there will be no shortage of quality games coming to the PS4.

If you don't like all the exclusives, there's still the better versions of all the multiplatform games. Not sure what you're talking about.

Planetside 2, LBP3, Deep down, Secret Ponchos, and others aren't exactly a what I would call games not on the radar. And those are just exclusives.

listenkids  +   125d ago
As you mention Destiny, this is related to all titles so, what if you care for Far Cry, Lords of the Fallen, AC Unity, Alien, Evil Within, Shadows of Mordor, Diablo 3, Fifa/COD(etc), The Crew, LBP 3, Dragon Age, Inf. Last Light? Heck even GTAV and Metro again, or lesser titles like Sherlock Holmes and such, not to mention some big hitting indies like Hotline 2, Velocity 2x and Drifter.

Unless you're unemployed with enough money to handle this year, you won't finish that much.

Granted most aren't incredible looking titles, but enough to quench a thirst.

I think this is the next play in the xbonefanboys playbook . SONY has no games or all SONY game are indie games . I don't think some gamers understand what a indie game is or is not . Being a indie game is about the financing of the development of the games not the size or the budget of the game . Project CD Red is a indie studio but the Wichter 3 is a AAA game . The tomorrow children , RIME and The Wild are not indie games the are all financed by SONY making them all first party or second party game not indie games . AAA game only refers to the budget of a game only it could be a indie or a first or second party game .

The reason i prefer SONY compared to microsoft is variety in different types of games . SONY first party game are always fresh and new . microsoft is rinse and repeat first person shooter , racing and third person shooter all action games . At microsoft some suits in a meeting go over charts of what games appeal to there core demographic 13-25 year olds . So microsoft can make a maximise profits . At SONY there first party game studio are there to make art and new game experiences .

Im personal hyped about The tomorrow children, The Wild and RIME i love new game experiences. SONY Gamecom was better to me than their E3.

Are you kidding me, the only games coming to xbone that isn't coming to ps4 are sunset overdrive and halo remastered, FH2 this fall and where as ps4 has littlebigplanet3 and driveclub, everything else is multiplat and everything else is indies, so that must mean xbox1 has no games too uhh.

The funny thing is that the ps4 has had more AAA games this year than the xbone. Xbone(titanfall, FH2, sunset overdrive, and halo remastered) where as ps4 has had Infamous, MLB 2014, Last of Us remastered, LittleBigPlanet, and Driveclub. The only difference is that Sony puts out indies inbetween AAA releases so we have something to play all the time. The More the Merrier. Some of the best games i have played this year have been indies.

If there were no games on PS4 it wouldn't have sold 10 million units and double the X1. It's a ploy from the Xbot side. I've got a backlog on PS4 and there is absolutely no reason to own an X1. Ryse, no, Forza, no, Dead R 3, no. Titanfall, No! Sunset Overdrive, No. PS4 has a ton of games I have no idea what people are going on about.

FanboyKilla  +   125d ago
how is destiny a big deal for ps4? you can play that almost anywhere. granted they may give you a helmet or armor, but i bet you take all they give you off for whats in the game.

i actually played destiny on ps4 and xone. same f n game. it will come to your preference.

if you can play the game elsewhere, its not a plus for you. the delusion that multiplats run better on ps4, is a sony fanboys wet dream. not true, and you are still pissy.

im not a fanboy. i own all the next gen systems. so if i choose to play games where i can do more than just play games (xone) what do you have that i cant get anywhere else? drive club? forza horizon, checkmate. next. lbp3? ps3 and lmfao. what about me? im left in the cold because i wont eat the shit you feed me.

if this is sony doing a graet job, and their fans are contempt with it, ill be selling this ps4 soon. no need to keep it around hoping it gets better. according to sony and its fans its already awesome.

if you think you are awesome, but you are not. you wont be spending anytime trying to become awesome, because in your mind you already are. smh at the sony fans. you only hurting yourselves, trying to prove a point that is a lie, to someone online, that probably can give 2 shiznits about whatever you are saying.

im willing to bet destiny sales more on ps3 and 360. its a cross gen game for a reason. advertised through next gen systems. the game is last gen.

While I would agree with you and it will sell on Xbox but the PS4 is in the same position the 360 was in the last generation (especially those regions in that era for the UK and USA). Destiny is going to sell more PS4 units that most of the exclusives it has this year. Destiny is popular and the PS4 version is popular also. That is why Sony is banking on it

ShowGun901  +   125d ago
the disagrees are because it doesn't matter where else it is. the article is about the ps4 having "no games"

not no AAA games.
not no exclusive games.

just games to play in general. so, besides having 2 infamous games, lbp3, and planetside 2, (probably forgetting something), the ps4 will also have the superior performing multi-plats... i'm really struggling to see how it has "no games"

no year 1 has looked this impressive.
HiddenMission  +   125d ago
Exactly, I think back to when the PS3 had it's 1st year it was really shallow and I had like maybe 10 games where as it's 9 months in and I know I have over 25...so yeah off to a great start and it's only going to get better.

I have over 25 games on my PS4 that I pick up at least 1 or more titles every month. Some are AAA others are indie but I always have more than enough games to play on my PS4.

Nobody's forgot that indies can be AAA quality. Xbox 360 owners have known this for eight years. Of course, when 360 owners mentioned indies in their game lists vs. PS3's, the 360 owners were ridiculed by the Sony fans who didn't care about indies.

Times have certainly changed, and the goalposts keep moving.

Indie is used as a derogatory term to imply that the game is about on par with a mobile phone/tablet game.

The term itself isn't being used properly so it can be used to discredit the library that the PS4 is getting, and to downplay how awesome some of those games actually are.

What's funny is that the biggest game for X1 that people said was going to move systems left and right(Titanfall), along with another upcoming one which is apparently a big thing for the Xbox One(Sunset Overdrive), are both indie titles. I've not once seen a Sony fan discredit those titles because they're indie.
FullmetalRoyale  +   125d ago
The Order, Bloodborne, UC4, Wild... ALL 2015. You didn't, at all, counter what was said here. Obligatory I love my ps4 blah, blah, blah. The fact is, all of the games I'm getting for it this year(personal taste) are third party. And only two of those are original titles that you listed coming out this year.
ShowGun901  +   125d ago
well, i guess you'll have the best version of those games then! LOL

if ps4 has no games, xbone also has no games. the lineups are 90% identical. (performance aside)
rainslacker  +   124d ago
The topic at hand is if the PS4 has AAA games for 2014. Not whether or not it has a lot of 1st party AAA games.

As has been shown by posters above, and is easily found by a quick google search, there are a ton of AAA games releasing starting next month, and going throughout the end of the year. So many in fact, most people will never be able to buy and play them all before the next big 1st party AAA exclusive comes out(The Order if you're wondering).

So, keeping it on topic, since the PS4 and X1 are pretty much all getting the same number of AAA 3rd party games, and the X1 has I believe only 1 more AAA 1st party exclusives releasing this holiday, and the fact that too date, the PS4 has had more 1st party AAA content than the X1 has, and has more games released both AAA and "indie", does the perception still exist that the PS4 has no games? Because it is objectively, and subjectively untrue.
ABizzel1  +   125d ago
@AngeliclceDiamond

It's the same thing that the PS3 was going through when it launched. Sony started the generation off with New IP's, instead of all their old PS2 franchises and people were complaining where are the games / PS3 has no games.

Yet these same people are the ones complaining about there be no new games, no new IP's, and sick of sequels.

They're just a bunch of nagging kids, who honestly don't have the money to afford half the games they claim to want, but simply want to troll or have amply supply of games on their console of choice to bash the other consoles.

Real gamers are out playing and enjoying the games on each of these consoles, while those who have so much time to talk and nag, either don't have the money to game like they claim to, or don't have the console to begin with to know all the good games on there already AAA or not.

I admit Sony could do better balancing New IP and established franchises better, but for the most part they want their established IP's to be the best they can which is why they're generally Year 2 / Year 3 games.

I got to much to play on PS4 so I don't see the problem. But then again I have a life besides gaming.
ShutUpDonny  +   125d ago
Exactly! How many games can you finish in a month ? Personally, for a 20 hours single player campaign, I need about two months. Maybe one if I don't play anything else at the same time. Just with Far Cry 4 and a couple of indies, I good until Batman or The Witcher comes out.
DigitalRaptor  +   125d ago
Sorry but this isn't a Sony only issue. As soon as Microsoft decided to pursue games with ID@Xbox, they basically committed to the same thing as Sony and will now have more Indies than AAA exclusives.

I mean people crave AAA games, but I guess that this year alone is not enough:

inFamous Second Son, MLB 14 The Show, The Last of Us Remastered, LittleBigPlanet 3, Guilty Gear Xrd, PlanetSide 2, DriveClub, Deep Down is about as much as Xbone has this year.

Next year is a slaughter if people want to complete exclusive lineups, if anyone is honest with themselves and you will see why.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   125d ago
Not sure why you felt the need to compare it to X1. There's no need to be that defensive about it.

We clearly know there's allot of games coming and currently on PS4.
rainslacker  +   124d ago
The general perception that the PS4 has no games exists due to the constant mantra from many XBox fan boys who insist that the PS4 has no games, or the discrediting of it's entire library because apparently it's too indie-centric(indie being a derogatory term nowadays to downplay the AAA'ness of a title of course), or focusing on the AAA titles that will exist next year, as opposed to the ones coming out in the next few months(or currently released).

And yes, many of us, and I assume most who have purchased a PS4 already, know that there are a lot of games available and upcoming. But that doesn't stop the pervasive attacks on the PS4's library to make another system look better when it actually has less content overall.
SoapShoes  +   125d ago
The only reason why people claim Xbox has more games this fall is because they forget what is coming to PS4 and Microsoft saved it for the holidays while Sony has had a stream of exclusives throughout the year. Where are the X1 exclusives since March? No where!
jetlian  +   125d ago
guilty gear wont come out this year same as deep down. its not about the amount of exclusives. It about if they're worth buying.

rainslacker  +   124d ago
Sure. Only you can decide what is worth your time and money. That's what makes it a very subjective argument when trying to say if a console has games or not.

It's one thing to say, "The PS4 has no games that appeal to me", it's quite another to say "The PS4 has no games". The first statement is based on tastes, and is subjective, whereas the latter statement is outright false because you can count the games and see that the statement is patently false.

And that's why this article is saying that it's a perception issue. One that I don't even believe exists. I believe the Xbox fan boys want to say and possibly believe that the PS4 has no games, but every PS4 owner I know knows what games are coming out, what's available, and what they're likely to be buying.

Now if all those same people said it had no games that appealed to them, I'd be OK with that. But I still find it hard to believe out of the entire library that they can't find any games that are worth their time or money, because they most likely do exist either in 1st or 3rd party.
ShutUpDonny  +   125d ago
The only AAA game I care about this year is Far Cry 4, but there is a BUNCH of indies that I want. My only "problem" is that most indies are also playable on Vita and between the PS4 and Vita, Vita wins most of the time (I just love that little machine), so in my case, it's true that I don't have much to play on PS4, but it really is a first world problem and I'm not complaining.
Pro_TactX  +   125d ago
I really don't get the "no games" argument I keep seeing. People dismiss multiplatform titles, but they are still playable. People dismiss indie titles, but they are still games that can be enjoyed. I've put a ton of time into Rogue Legacy this month. I'm going to run through The Last of Us Remastered starting this weekend. Tuesday I will be jumping into Diablo 3: RoS, which will probably tide me over until Destiny releases (and if it doesn't, then I have a huge backlog of other games that will). After Destiny there is a flood of games coming. But I guess I have no games to play.

In all honest there aren't a lot of first part IP's for Sony, or MS for that matter, at the current time. PS4 exclusive first parties:
1) Infamous SS
2) Knack
3) TLOU RM
4) Killzone SF
5) Resogun

And... I am sure there are other "exclusive" indies but focusing on first party or second party big PS4 IP's, these are honestly the only 5 I can think of.

It's no different for MS now or Nintendo in 2012/13. That's the nature of a new gen. But man... 2015 looks AMAZING for PS4:
1) Rime
2) Everybody's gone to the rapture
3) Uncharted 4
4) Driveclub (2014)
5) Until Dawn
6) The Tomorrow Children
7) Wild
8) Shadow of the Beast
9) The Order
10) Ratchet and Clank remake
11) Alienation
12) Bloodborne

As far as I can tell, this is what's coming ONLY to PS4 by next year. That's a stellar lineup with everything from horror to puzzle to RPG to action to 3rd person shooter. Not to mention the games we don't know of yet.

I don't know aboutyou guys I'm starting to think negative about Sony because it seems as though Sony are a bit cocky now that they've reached 10 million units. In the beginning, Sony use to listen to us with an open ear. Now there close minded. We haven't had enough aaa games to play in a while. all We we get is a bunch of boring indies games.

It is a perception issue. However the only people that perceive it that way seems to be the Xbox fan boys. I've yet to see a Sony fan say that the PS4 has no games...not once in fact.

You may say that it's because they're Sony fans, but a lot of Sony fans have been saying it about the Vita the past few months, because support has dried up, so I'm sure the larger install base of the PS4 may have complaints if there were no games.

PS4 has some pretty stellar titles and performs better overall but again the AAA titles are a bit lower.

Both are good choices but dam I'm confused.

You can get the Limited Edt X1 with Sunset Overdrive for $400. But if you're still undecided, if you play more first person shooters get the X1 first. If you like to play a lot of indies, get the ps4.
SoapShoes  +   125d ago
Then you haven't been paying attention. X1 has more AAA titles? Hmmm, not really. X1 has had a horrible summer and most of spring, it hasn't had an AAA exclusive since March with TitanFall. I realize that problem won't be there if you buy in fall because the system is FINALLY getting something but how you can say the XBO has brought its A game is beyond me.

I feel the same way. Between Sept 9th and march of next year, there are way too many games coming out. I doubt I'll have the time to play them all

agreed. i have resigned to buying the remasters just to have something new to play, even though I've already played them. the bumped up graphics are nice but not enough to satisfy that itch for something truly new.
bleedsoe9mm  +   125d ago
i played the hell out of the last of us last year , not giving them 50$ for slighly better graphics . not that its not a great game . i still might buy drive club but i'm going to play the ps+ version first .

@bleeds
yeah. i'm torn about driveclub. a part of me wants to buy cuz it looks great and it is something new to play but there are few things that bum me out about it. i guess something is better than nothing
ShutUpDonny  +   125d ago
Yeah, but why is it so important if a game is exclusive or not ? Who cares as long as you have something to play ?
system22  +   125d ago
like ive been saying. 2015 will be a great year. until then....
CuddlyREDRUM  +   125d ago
I think the questions are more about first party AAA titles.
AutoCad  +   125d ago
i only own MLB the show and the last of us (which is a ps3 game) so even though im in the minority here on this site when it comes to questioning sony in terms of its AAA exclusives.I still think they have fallen off completely and have relied on indies this gen so far.
lolosgolos  +   125d ago
When your customer asks you where the value is, its not right to tell them it depends on how you look at it and then mention something everyone is getting instead of standing out with even at least a mention of Drive Club. He should get some advice from Jack. Anyway next year looks really good though and I hope they don't postpone anything.

They are new consoles, they suck at release. Who cares, this is what happens.

Does everybody forget how crappy the first couple years of the PS3 and Xbox360 were?

Fall 2015 and up are when these systems will start to rock.

I have had no shortage of things to play on my PS4 and I'm having a blast. There are some games I won't and haven't bought because I have too much to play now.

And all the fall releases are about to hit, there is going to be 200 games on this system by Christmas if everything on the schedule releases on time

The people who say it has no games, what games do you need?
Skankinruby  +   125d ago
My question is, what are all these people playing on X1 that say ps4 has no games? Because what I see is a watered down Forza 4 with next gen graphics aka forza 5, titanfall which out of the mouths of consumers was labeled a disappointment and not even an exclusive according to xbots since its on the 360, Ryse-a qte snoozefest that again got horrible feedback from fans and critics, the only thing of significance is killer instinct and its not even a new ip its a recycled Nintendo game. Its forecast has potential with games like quantum break, scaleboud, and maybe phantom dust. But when the only thing people are heavily anticipating in the next six months is a collection of one of the only successful franchises Microsoft has ever had it doesn't speak much for the console. NO console launches with a ton of games, simple research will tell you that and Xbox one is definitely no exception

"Please dont count 5 hours games called indigames, thanks! "

Really, you can do better than that, come on.

"and i bet uc4 will be pushed to 2016"

Ok nevermind. It's late for you.
DigitalRaptor  +   124d ago
It's hilarious to see you troll on PS4. Xbone has about…. 3 exclusives in 2015:

- Fable Legends
- Quantum Break
- Halo 5

Yep, Sony CAN do better than that:

- The Order: 1886
- Ratchet & Clank Redux
- Let It Die
- MLB 15: The Show
- Bloodborne
- Uncharted 4 (won't get delayed)
- Until Dawn
- Tearaway Unfolded

Then onto the indie games that have scope as large as AAA games, so really anyone that discounts them as "indies", may as well be sh*tting on AAA games too. These games are:

- WiLD
- No Man's Sky
- RiME

The rest of the indies that are "5 hours long", are just a lovely addition to an already expansive library of exclusive gems. Hotline Miami 2? Yes please. Titan Souls? Yes please.

It's almost as if multiplatform games don't count anymore. There are a TON of games coming out the rest of the year. Wtf is wrong with you fanboys?

stands for ps4 for the win

MasterCornholio  +   125d ago
Why do some people assume that exclusives are the only games that matter?

Multiplats are games as well and many of them are just as good as the best exclusives.
iceman06  +   124d ago
Because it somehow validates their argument. Just as how indie titles and F2P are left off of list just because THEY "aren't interested".
Joe913  +   125d ago
Anyone who bought their console for a lot of AAA games in the first year of release was kidding themselves or this is your first console gen not many games ever come out in the first year sometimes two but the fact that two major video game shows just past and Sony still have games that we know are being made we just don't know what they are yet to me that is exciting I have my ps4 and have only bought two games have the free to play games and the ps+ games IDK I am pretty busy but I only been able to beat one game lol but the main reason I got mine so early is because I wanted to slowly build up my accessories like waited a few months got a cam will wait a little bit longer grab me a second controller so when stuff like Morpheus drops I have everything I need.
jts1891  +   125d ago
Honestly, while I'm tired of Sony pushing Indies, it's more because of how they hype them. Coming into E3 and Gamescom, Sony put out plenty of hype about all the 'amazing' titles they were going to show off. So when I tuned into the conference, and saw Indie after Indie, I was incredibly disappointed.

However, the PS4 has plenty of games. I picked my PS4 up on July 30th, and I've played The Last of Us, Killzone, and InFamous since I picked it up. Aside from Killzone, I haven't been disappointed. I'll probably pick up Tomb Raider in the next two weeks or so, and that'll tide me over till Destiny, which will keep me busy for weeks if the beta was any indication.

My question is what ever happened to all of those devs Sony talked about before the launch of the PS4?
The list of Devs is shorter....
