Sony CEO on PS4 games: 'There's a lot coming'
When it came to exclusives, Microsoft wiped the floor with Sony at E3. During their individual press conferences Microsoft showed off over 10 new Xbox One titles, many of them exclusive to the console; Sony, meanwhile, showed off more of what was already seen during the initial PS4 reveal. Killzone: Shadow Fall, inFAMOUS: Second Son, The Order: 1889, and Driveclub all look like solid titles, but for a system promised to be "all about gamers," you'd have expected a few more heavy hitters. Surely, there are more PS4 exclusive titles waiting in the wings, right?
"We need to have something to show at Gamescom, don’t we?” SCE Europe CEO Jim Ryan told GameReactor.
“There’s a lot coming,” he teased. "I’m sure you heard from [SCE Worldwide Studios boss] Shu [Yoshida] that he has – just his studios – he has 30 games in development. 20 of them are going to ship within the first year of the console’s life, and of those, 12 are new IP."
“So there’s a lot going on, it’s just that we need to keep stuff back. We’ve got Gamescom for us Europeans – we need to have something to show at Gamescom, don’t we?”
Gamescom takes place in Cologne, Germany and runs from August 21 through August 25. Expect to see more from Microsoft in terms of games, as well. Back in May, Xbox EMEA social marketing manager Graeme Boyd promised the "next chapter of Xbox gaming experiences" would be on show. Does this mean even more exclusives for the Xbox One -- or maybe the IllumiRoom?
