It would appear that Sony’s heading into the wave of next generation consoles quite prepared. In a statement to CVG, Sony World Studios Vice President Michael Denny hyped up the holiday 2013 launch of the PlayStation 4 by saying that the console would feature not just a strong line-up of games, but the strongest for the company yet.
“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,” said Denny. “I think there are big genres that we want to cover but we want to innovate within them and move them on.”
Since the announcement of the PlayStation 4, we’ve learned that Watch Dogs will be available at launch. Guerrilla Games has ambitions of releasing Killzone: Shadow Fall on day one with the console. As for Knack, the colorful action-adventure game from industry veteran Mark Cerny, well, that may just be a launch day title, as well.
Video game platforms live and die by their content. As a fan of the entertainment that this industry has to offer, I’m hoping Sony delivers a strong launch line-up for the PlayStation 4 and continues to offer great software for the system.
