August 21st marks the start of Gamescom in Cologne, one of the industry’s largest events behind E3 and despite the weather cooling down, the competition between Sony and Microsoft is only set to heat up.
Jim Ryan, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe’s CEO teased some of their plans in an interview with GameReactor:
“We very consciously, at the event in New York on February 20 of this year, showed a lot of software. We showed a lot of first-party software. What we did at E3 here was really show some updates to those games, and, as you mentioned, introduce The Order: 1886. There’s a lot coming.”
“I’m sure you heard from 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?”
With a lot of titles in development, what games would sell you on the PlayStation 4? Personally I’d love to see Ratchet and Clank usher in a new generation, give us a shout in the comments section below or on our social media channels!
