Sony Lineup - Andrew House | oprainfall

I can’t speak for others, but I don’t have a PS4, partially because of the price, partially because I have a stack of PS3 and 3DS games to get through before I can justify a shiny new console, but mostly because I’ve only seen a couple games on the console that I’m interested in.

Well, it seems like Sony doesn’t completely disagree with me. Sony Computer Entertainment President and global CEO, Andrew House, has admitted that “Our first party lineup has been a little sparse this year,” which was followed by a statement that they hope to emphasize on third-party support even more. House also seems to have a dim view of the Vita, citing it as a ‘legacy console’ alongside the PS3.

House’s speech on the whole was positive, citing the sales of the PS4, as well as the growth of PS4 membership, calling 2015 ‘the beginning of a Harvest period.’

    I find this Sooo damn funny. It’s like saying

    Ps4: hey all your friends got ps4 so you should get one too.

    That guy: but what games dose it have?

    Ps4: look dude, if you want to be cool you got to buy it. It dose not matter what games it has.

    XBox One doesn’t have much better to offer.

    For the Wii U it seems to be the opposite.

    • Daniel McIver

      To be fair, it took the WiiU about a year to get any of it’s big hitters to the party.

    How ’bout Call of Booty: Advanced Whorefare?

    I dunno it seems when people say there are “no games” is there are not “AAA exclusives”. People seem to forget that PS4 has as much 3rd party titles as Xbox One and while there’s isn’t as much heavy hitters like Halo or Rise of the Tomb Raider, the PS4 actually has more games in terms of depth Uncharted, Bloodborne, No Man’s Sky, Until Dawn, Persona 5, The Darkest Dungeon, Transistor, and a number of Indie titles.

    IMO Sony’s 1st party offerings have always been weak. Which is fine. It isn’t their strength. Just make sure the channels & support for 3rd party are wide open.

    Yes, PS4 is really lacking games. I wish they would ignore it for a while and give Vita more goodies.
