Sony: PS4's "Familiarity" Results In Best Launch Lineup Ever
Sony delayed the PlayStation Vita launch so they could correctly advertise that it would have the best launch lineup in the brand's history.
And if you really think about it, that was probably accurate. The Vita launched with around 25 titles, several of which were excellent. Now, Sony wants to reset the launch bar with the upcoming PlayStation 4.
According to what PS4 lead system architect Mark Cerny told Gamasutra, the new machine will have the best launch lineup of software ever. And that's due in large part to game developers being familiar with the system's accessible PC-based architecture. Said Cerny:
"The launch lineup for PlayStation 4--though I unfortunately can't give the title count--is going to be stronger than any prior PlayStation hardware. And that's a result of that familiarity."
We already know a few of the PS4 launch titles; Killzone: Shadow Fall, DriveClub, Knack and the cross-generation game, Watch Dogs. Sony may be waiting to unveil other big-name launch titles, such as inFamous: Second Son and Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. Perhaps we'll get the full list at E3, and we've heard that Sony might unveil the date and price at some point in May. Who's guessing mid-November and about $499?
