Shuhei Yoshida has compared the 2014 software lineup of the PS4 to the Xbox One. According to a report from Gamepur on July 10, the president of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios believes that his company's games match up pretty well against the offerings from Microsoft Studios. Sony will be releasing "Drive Club," "LittleBigPlanet 3" and "The Last of Us Remastered" later this year. The big first party-games for the Xbox One includes "Halo: The Master Chief Collection," "Forza Horizon 2" and "Sunset Overdrive."

Shuhei Yoshida also mentioned to Eurogamer that "Destiny" will be coming out to the PS4 later in 2014. Although the shared-world first-person shooter is coming to the Xbox 360 and Xbox One as well, it will have timed exclusive contents on the PS3 and PS4. Sony announced a special system bundle for the video game featuring a white-colored console at last month's Electronic Entertainment Expo.

The president also stated that "The Last of Us Remastered" should also be a big game as statistics show that 49 percent of PS4 owners did not own a PS3 (17 percent of the total also did not own either a Wii or Xbox 360 as well). As a result, a lot of customers is going to experience the award-winning game for the first time on the next-generation system. The port is expected to come out on July 29 in North America.

Some fans have been critical of the first-party lineup of the PS4 in 2014. "The Order 1886" was originally announced for a fall release of this year before being delayed until Feb. 20 of next year. A few others also expected "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End" to come out in 2014 as well although Sony announced at E3 2014 that it won't be arriving until 2015.

Instead, it appears that the console manufacturer is focusing on third-party releases along with a handful of exclusives for the rest of this year. The PS4 is still projected to outsell other systems despite the perceived weak lineup of games that only be played on the next-generation system.
