PS4 has proven its popularity at the currently on-going Tokyo Game Show 2015 by having more than 100 games being showcased at the tradeshow. This is up massively over last year’s TGS, where PS4 had less than 50 games showcased at the tradeshow.
Ps4 has diversity on lock right now
As always, since the Ps1 era
still got Paris next month and PlayStation experience aswell to come both THIS YEAR ... Sony are going hard right now Sony themselves didnt know why they were selling so well.... THIS IS WHY SONY.. Games games and more games of all genres...
You have to consider that since sony has still 2 conferences to attend, then they still have "Plenty" to show at paris games week and especially, most especially PS experience which I think is their main event of the year. And yet the other fans in their own world still think sony has less games and mediocre ones LOL. I just cannot wait to see the surprises here. Since these past months and weeks the headlines are full of MS gamescom, cloud, DX12 etc. and holiday AAA games firing bullet after bullet. SOny and PS4 just like V in V for vendetta will say "My turn"!!
TGS was a success as always for Sony.
I've been saying this for a while. Gamers want games. We get excited and we will buy your games if you bring them. They appeal to all sorts of gamers young and old, hardcore and casual, collectors and sportheads,fps and rpgs. When you have a console that appeals to all gamers it will sell. Nintendo needs more games and xbox needs diversity. Both xbox and the wiiu need new ips. Look at how well splatoon sold. Look at how people want quantum break and scalebound. It's ok to have old ip's buy you can't ride the same games for years and think it's gunna sell consoles. Sony is showing it's competition what gamers want.....and it's games.
Whatever You Want?
It's a given i think.
Diversity PS over 9000! Xbox diversity equals Ganju LOL BTW Just joking on the Ganju part!
How do you know that? I read the article and there was no real mention of what game names, descriptions, and what genre each game is in. Just by looking at the list I see that it does not breakout platforming and strategy games as a category. Also, there is no mention of how many games are new on the list as compared to what has been already announced at E3, Gamescom, etc. Also, a lot of the TGS games never make it outside of Japan. TGS is mostly for the Asian crowd. Finally, quantity does not mean quality. There are a lot of games out on all platforms. That doesn't mean that every platform has diversity.
@neo You state alot of the games from tgs never make it outside of Japan... Yet then state no mention of how many games were shown at e3... If they never make it out of Japan I'm guessing they wouldn't have been at e3... Do Japanese games not count as diversity or are you of USA=THE WORLD mentality? Have Sony not shown a few jrpg's that are getting western releases? You talk about quality over quantity I suggest you go check the lists.. Not that it bothers me as I play both consoles but ps4 has more games rated higher than 90 than the Xbox one and Im sure Wii u probably has more than both of those consoles. So again (in no disrespect to any other console I might add as Im not into that fanboy mess) yup the ps4 has diversity on lock
So, you are lazy and want the full list? Go search for yourself! Here are some of the games showed in TGS: - Gravity Rush 2 - World of FF - Nioh - Dragon Quest Builders - Digimon Story Here you have! 5 of them, go search the others 95 games!
Regardless of them not making it out of Japan doesn't mean the games aren't relevant while adding diversity. Some may come, others can be imported fairly reasonably. It shows that the PS4 is a global console, offering different games to different markets. Not something that the competition can really state.
The funny thing is in the list the iOS, Android, and PC has more games coming to it from TGS. Yet people are taking the story title and turning it into a diversity conversation. Real diversity is on iOS, Android, and PC... PS4 is fourth... @suckingeggs Japanese is not a genre. Japanese are the game developers. Typcially, Japanese make RPGs, action hack 'n' slash games, and adventure (storybook) games. FYI. I do not live in the USA. So no they are not the world. @BoyBigEyes If you are going to talk about diversity you have to show why it is diverse. I'm not asking for a full list, but I did specify where I saw in the info provided that diversity was lacking... Strategy and Platforming. @JMyers Where did I say the games weren't relevant or adding to diversity? People are sitting here talking about the diversity but yet not showing diversity.
@NeoGamer232, Board games offer more diversity than mobile games. PC is leagues above them, same with PS4.
"Also, a lot of the TGS games never make it outside of Japan. TGS is mostly for the Asian crowd." Well, then it's a great thing the PS4 is region free.
No one will see most of these games outside Japan, or at all. How many release dates did we get? Can we keep some perspective here? Why does every piece of marketing drivel Sony slithers out have to be mindlessly hyped to no end around here, what are you people trying to prove? Truth is we saw the same thing with PS3 and everyone I know with one played their 360s most of the time while PS3 collected dust. They then ran out and bought PS4s as soon as it dropped because the much hyped massive game library on PS3 never happened.
The massive gaming library on ps3 never happened? excuse me a moment LMFAOOOOOOO ...cough.. ok Im back
Okay. I want all you extremist Xboxers to stay that way. Stay clueless and clearly have no idea of the lifestyle the diverse multi-cultural and multi-racial PlayStation Nation of gamers in America and around the world have. And chances are, neithet does Microsoft. It's just common sense: why would Japan even make these games if no one is playing them all these times? Just because you xboxers don't like these games does not mean no one is buying them in America. You guys don't know how big the import market in NA is. Law of supply and demand.
"The massive gaming library on ps3 never happened" Umm... Uhh... Well... I'm speechless! Whatever floats your boat, I guess.
Everyone you know? Wow. I know lots of people who don't own either. /S I only own ps4 this gen as its clearly the better console (I owned 360 and ps3), but you're blind if you think it's only in Japan. You, my kind sir, seem to be caught in the ps4 headlights.
Well done. Bravo!
see kids, if you have any doubt what the statement "never go full retard" actually means, just use Strikepackage Bravo's post for reference. it pretty much summarizes everything that needs to be explained.... /smh
BTW All the retail games that are available for the west for both last gen consoles 360 has 90~ PS3 has 160~ MS never hit the triple digit mark when it came to their retail exclusive library. Now for the retail games for the current gen consoles (Available to the west) PS4 has 25 XB1 has 10 For late 2015/2016 and beyond AKA the Upcoming titles PS4 will have 51 games + 20 games that might come to the west Xb1 will have 12 including the none localization confirmed titles. We're looking at 76 VS 22 Confirmed for WESTERN release RETAIL titles by the end of 2017. "Never happened" No my friend, it happens every gen when it comes down to Playstation VS Xbox exclusives. PS always has more games PS always has better scoring games PS always has more diversity. These are facts.
The massive game library on PS3 never happened? What are you talking about? The PS3 has more than double exclusive franchises than thr competition. Notbeveb counting Japanese games. Many of these are new IPs too, and not rehashes of the same game every 2 years. Any comparison will show this. From PS1 to PS4 Sony brings diversity and investment. Its never the shooter box only... And will never be. This is a good thing. Indies, JRPGs, new IPs, exclusives, nich games...? Everett generation.
The PS3's exclusive games library is not only more extensive than the 360's. But also better rated and provides more variety. #1 360 exclusive Halo 3 rated 94 -vs- #1 PS3 exclusive Uncharted 2 rated 96 - PS3 wins this round #2 360 exclusive Gears or War 2 rated 93 -vs- #2 PS3 exclusive Little Big Planet rated 95 - PS3 wins this round #3 360 exclusive Forza 3 rated 92 -vs- #2 PS3 exclusive The Last of Us rated 95 - PS3 wins this round #4 360 exclusive Halo Reach rated 91 -vs- #4 PS3 exclusive Metal Gear 4 rated 94 - PS3 wins this round #5 360 exclusive Forza 4 rated 91 -vs- #5 PS3 exclusive God of War 3 rated 92 - PS3 wins this round #6 360 exclusive Gears of War 2 rated 91 -vs- #6 PS3 exclusive Journey rated 92 - PS3 wins this round #7 360 exclusive Trials Evolution rated 90 -vs- #6 PS3 exclusive Shadow of the Colossus HD rated 92 - PS3 wins this round #8 360 exclusive Forza 2 rated 90 -vs- #6 PS3 exclusive Killzone 2 rated 91 - PS3 wins this round We can continue as many rounds as you want, but the 360 doesn't have as many exclusives as the PS3 and the result will continue to be the same, PS3 defeated 360 in every single round. You can also realize 2 things after analyzing the data 1) Not even the best 360 game is able to beat PS3's top 4 2) 360 best games are a combination of practically the same franchises. If you need any proves please follow the links to the all time metacritic ratings for both consoles: 360 : http://www.metacritic.com/b... PS3 : http://www.metacritic.com/b...
@miyamoto You stated, "You clearly have no idea of the lifestyle the diverse multi-cultural and multi-racial Playstation nation games in America and around the world have." I just want to stop you right there. You are branding all "Playstation Nation" as "multi-cultural and multi-nation", yet you hypocritically label all Xbox players as, more or less, racist and anti-cultural. No offense, but grouping ALL people into one group, oh let's just say "extremist Xboxers" as an example, is just as discriminatory as what you say "Playstation Nation" is against. As a proud Playstation player I am just going to say please think before you talk (or in this case, type).
What a joke. Lol!!! Yeah, like the ps3 had no games. What are you smokin, pass it around.
"everyone I know with one played their 360s most of the time while PS3 collected dust" Everyone I know bought 360s first but ended up trading them in for PS3s because of the more diverse library of games. "the much hyped massive game library on PS3 never happened" In this dimension it most definitely did, not sure about what happened in the alternate universe you seem to be from.
Anybody dares to say PS4 has no games still? In that case X1+WiiU are deserted by games.
That whole thing is utterly ridiculous. If things were the other way around we would be hearing "PS4 has no games". Its crazy how good MS twists the gullible into thinking something even though the truth is a matter of a google search. Believe me, as long as MS money pays for articles to be written, there will be people who buy into the marketing.
No wonder Microsoft choose to skip TGS, they would get crushed by Sony's giant lineup of games and exclusives, beside Scalebound I don't think there are any other japanese games coming to xbone
Welp, I guess the PS4 has no games. /s
but but ps4 has no games oh ps4 has games but those are niche title oh but no one cares about JRPG's bottom line ps4 has the most games especially compared to xbox one. can't change facts
Thats another reason why its doing well. So many games. More than anyone could actually play. But that variety makes everyone happy I guess.
"But that variety makes everyone happy I guess". Isn't that the reason to have a gaming console? Variety and diversity? I think Sony knows how important it is to the gamer's.
They literally have games for all tastes so yeah. Its the PlayStation!
This reminds me of the Ps1/Ps2 era for sure.Sony made a piece of hardware that can can speed up development time and make developing the game much easier.
@Eonjay Minus a decent racer but yeah, I'm seeing PS2 level of mad variety.
@ septic A backhanded compliment, how typical. Sony still has two more conferences. It would be funny if they announced GT7 as a 2016 release title at Paris (considering racing is big in Europe). Wonder if that happens, would you use bbq sauce or honey mustard to enhance the taste of your foot, or would your taste buds prefer them bare. BTW, Driveclub is, at the very least, a decent racer.
Oh stop, variety is just code for, a bunch of low budget indie games no one wants to play. XB360 had the same thing in XBL arcade and it did nothing for them; and similarly it has nothing to do with why PS4 is doing so well now.
Star Ocean, Persona, NiOh, and the rest are low budget indies?! LMAO! You ... never cease to amuse me!
OK fine, not all are indie, some are low budget non indies niche games no one wants to play. Ive never seen a console with so many games, yet still has nothing to play. This stuff only flies when you have a balance of AAA games to round things out. If all your going to get is crap that could just as easily run on PS3, or even an Ipad, then why do i need to buy a PS4?
"if all your going to get is crap that could just as easily run on PS3, or even an Ipad, then why do i need to buy a PS4?" Well said. I got both... And until Uncharted 4 releases... My ps4 will just collect dust. Xbox one has the exclusives I'll be buying this holiday season.
Strikepackage Bravo, please, just come out of the closet already and admit that you are a Microsoft fanboy. I just skimmed over your comment history and all you write is compliments for Microsoft and complaints for Sony.
Take a look at BlackHeart's comment above and learn why you seem so silly right now.
Thats why PS4 is nearing 55% market share.
@Septic Someone's fanboyism is showing...
So... I guess a "PS4 has no games right? /s" joke would be fitting now, right?
I knew someone would post this!
i came here to post this.. q: Not to forget - "nobody plays these japanese games!!!" And - "But have you freaking seen Scalebound?"
Sony always has a lot of games to show. The problem with Sony is many of these games are 1-3 years out. They put a 2016 release date on many of these games, but we know full well that a bunch of these will slip into 2017 and beyond. It always happens. They did list some for 2015 and I'm hoping they aren't for Japan only. I'm hype for all the games, but I'm realistic and knowing that I may have to wait awhile to play many of these. I hope For Honor, NiOh and Hot Shots Golf come out in the first half of 2016. These are must have games to me.
Even if what you say is partially true. You do know that means on top of these games even more games already in development are gonna be shown at E3 at next years TGS. Adding to the total that will be available real soon or years ahead. It just keeps stacking games. Some are being made right now we haven't even been announced yet.
How dare you suggest PS4 has games when we all know it has no games...only indies:):):)
/s i put that there for your safety. q:
nice, now i need to find a way to add 4 more hours to every day, then i will be set! my backlog is already calling my name!
There are many reasons Ps4 is dominating its competitors,this is one of them
come on bro, only the holiday seasons matters bro, no one even plays games during those other seasons! I mean...are those AAA games? NO! THUS I WIN! /s
TGS 2015 was an incredible success for Sony, and only goes to further demonstrate just how much global support PS4 has. Every corner of the world where PS4 is sold is surpassing expectations. I see the haters are out in full force trying hard to downplay PS4 game quantity vs quality vs how long these games will take to release vs if they'll reach the west at all....even though the TGS event is still so super fresh, and nobody's heard of imports!? Finally, I'd sincerely like to thank everyone for their deep concern for the poor game-less, overheating PS4. I really don't know how I'd get through this current gen cycle without all the Support. /s
I've played on all systems throughout the years, but it's Playstation's large diversity that has always kept it my favorite.
PS is a default system for me as I like the JRPGs.....I have no other place to get my huge variety of them lol
absolutely true for me too.
Trillion Gaming Set
The diversity on PS4 is unmatched.
I think the PC matches them pretty well. There are more games on the PC then any other platform in the world. The 3DS is also very diverse. If you are talking about console only, then yes, I would agree. Both Wii U and XB1 need more JRPG games.
but does it have HALO? /s
Have you SEEN Titanfall?
And 97 of them are indy games? Not impressed at all with this. Hoped we would see something awesome.
Double post. Sorry.
