The new commercial for PlayStation 4 shows Sony boasting about a very rich lineup of games. Recently there have been some rumors going about that the PS4’s library over the first year post launch would be weak, especially since Drive Club’s delay. Well this addition pretty much puts all those rumors to rest in one fell swoop.
Firstly it is stated that currently 24 PlayStation 4 exclusive games are in the works. The biggest names amongst those 24 include Infamous: Second Son, Killzone: Shadow Fall, and The Order: 1886.
Right after that the ad goes to state that “14 award winning studios” are making PS4 games. This clearly points to the first party developers which include big names such as Media Molecule (Little Big Planet), Sucker Punch (Infamous), Guerrilla Games (Killzone), Naughty Dog (Uncharted), and Sony Santa Monica (God of War) to name a few.
Lastly the ad goes to mention that over 180 games are being developed for the PS4 currently, and that it is “more than any other next-gen console”. These games would include big titles such as Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Destiny, and Watch Dogs, which would also be getting timed exclusive downloadable content on the PS4.
The last we heard from Sony (somewhere in June), they said that its first party developers were working on 30 titles, out of which 20 of which would be released within the first year of the PS4’s launch, and 12 of which would be brand new franchises.
As for the 180 games being developed for the PS4, it has been stated that 33 of them would be released before the end of 2013. That’s a whole lot of games if you ask me. Now if they just could show us what these games were, that would be just great.
