At last week's PlayStation event, Sony finally unveiled the PS4. At this event, we were presented with a handful of titles that will be appearing on the PS4 as launch titles. With a launch date scheduled for the end of 2013, Sony believes that the PS4 has the strongest launch lineup of the game titles that they have ever had.
Speaking with CVG on Feb. 26, Sony comments on the lessons that they learned with the launch lineup of the PS Vita. “I think we learn lessons from every platform we launch and every game we launch. I think Vita as a handheld and portable platform is quite a different offering to what PlayStation 4 is going to be in terms of the competitive landscape. But the main point is that yes we had a nice line-up of titles with PS Vita, but I think nearly every console you can think of from the last decade, in terms of those pillar titles coming through... it sometimes takes a year, two years or so. So when you look at Vita now, games like Tearaway and Killzone Mercenary are starting to come through.”
“With PlayStation 4 what's exciting is we can see the strength in depth of titles come through - not just in first party but third party, and I really believe PlayStation 4 will have the strongest launch line-up we've ever had.”
With titles such as “Drive Club,” “Killzone: Shadow Fall,” and “Watch Dogs,” it is easy to see why Sony believes that this is the strongest lineup that they have ever had for a console launch. For those interested, we have listed a few photos that were taken from the PS4 reveal event last week in the slideshow above this article.
