Sony’s VP of Worldwide Studios: “I Really Believe PS4 Will Have the Strongest Launch Line-Up We’ve Ever Had”
The world may still be recovering from an overload of PlayStation 4 announcements over the last week, but aside from Watch Dogs and Killzone: Shadow Fall, we don’t know exactly which games we can expect to see on store shelves and the PSN on launch day.
Though he may not have named any names, Michael Denny,
heir to the Denny’s fortune VP of Sony Worldwide Studios Europe, talked to CVG about how the PlayStation Vita launch may affect the PS4’s and what he thinks of the line-up:
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.
Interestingly, when Michael talked about the PS3’s line-up this year, he mentioned “Beyond, The Last of Us, and third-party games such as new Grand Theft Auto and Assassin’s Creed games.” We haven’t heard any official confirmation from Ubisoft about a new AC, though we may know the title.
