PlayStation Exec Assures PS4’s 2018 Games Line-Up Is Very Strong

“We probably haven’t been sufficiently vocal about a year in which we’ve had Horizon Zero Dawn.”

Horizon Zero Dawn™_20170630105622

In the September issue of gaming magazine Edge, Jim Ryan from PlayStation, was asked about his thoughts about the PS4’s future exclusive line-up and why Sony’s first party game studios haven’t been able to deliver many exclusives every year. Given that Sony have so many exclusives such as Persona 5, Nier Automata and Horizon Zero Dawn released this year, I wonder why there are claims of lack of exclusives. 

Ryan addressed these claims by stating that the exclusives are there but they haven’t been vocal about it.”We probably haven’t been sufficiently vocal about a year in which we’ve had Horizon Zero Dawn, which has been a hugely successful new IP. We’ve got Uncharted: The Lost Legacy and we’ve got Gran Turismo Sport, all in the same year, all from our studios, all exclusive to PlayStation. I think that’s a pretty decent statement,”he stated. He also added that the line-up  for 2018 is looking “very strong.”

Sony’s line-up for 2018 is indeed quite strong so I don’t quite understand why there are claims out there stating the PS4 doesn’t have many exclusives. Ryan also stated that he’s not sure whether they will do another iteration of the PS4.

“I think we’re only six months into PlayStation 4 Pro, and it’s too early to tell. The Xbox One X hasn’t launched yet. I don’t know if this is the way forward or not.”

Sony have already confirmed that there will be a PlayStation 5 and according to a popular industry analyst, it will be backwards compatible with the PS4. In my opinion, I don’t think there will be anymore PlayStation 4 iterations after the PS4 Pro…a PS4 Pro slim may be, but definitely not a specifications iteration.

Thanks, Wccftech.

    Hahahahaha Sony executives are feeling the heat because they have no games for 2018. The failedstation

    • Agent_Blade

      You are such a moron.

    • yeah, he is. and so are the PS fanboys that post the same thing about Xbox.

    • Fweds

      He has a point though.
      Uncharted: The Lost Legacy was originally DLC which they have decided to release as standalone.
      MS could of done that with Forza horizon 3 Hotwheels and then claimed it as a separate game too.

      Gran Turismo Sport, is just a spin-off that doesn’t include weather changes, Day and night changes, has a poor amount of cars and as seen in the videos cutdown background graphics etc.
      Compare it to Forza 7 a full sim quality release and I would not pay more than 15 dollars for what you are getting in Gran Turismo Sport,

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      really? what about horizon, gravity rush 2 and MLB the show that are already out? plust the more than 20 exclusives not made by sony?

      what 2017 xbox exclusives have you been playing?

      See? he doesnt really have a point!

    • Fweds

      Now try and read it again, they are talking about what’s to come this year not old games already out.

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      Wow! old games? so what would you call the last xbone exclusives? ancient?

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      Now you go and read it again, he said 2018, there you have God of war, Shadow of the colossus and spiderman.

      So, no! he didnt make a point!

    • Fweds

      Are you actually talking about the same thing, I am talking about posts above before I replied.

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      You replied “he has a point” to the Agent_blade who said “you are such a moron” to the guy saying ” Sony executives are feeling the heat because they have no games for 2018″

      So, you would be supporting the stupid idea that there are no 2018 games for sony.

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      So, now that even crapdown 3 isn’t coming this year either, what AAA exclusives will xbone or xbonex will have this year?

      What a nice system!

    • kma99

      He’s talking about games yet you post console sales numbers Lol. I thought it was about the games now. Isn’t that what you sony guys keep saying now. Oh now it’s back to sales since npd came out lol.

    • Holeybartender
    • kma99

      How can you prove me wrong when he posted a list of consolr sales? You clearly don’t know what proving me wrong entail. So tell me now why did he list console sales? Nice try but you can keep the links

    • Holeybartender

      Thought I was posting to the other guy and didn’t realize until after,sorry ’bout that. Reposted to him.

    • kma99

      Ok 🙂

    • Fweds

      How come you didn’t get 10 fake Upvotes as Mrxrat, Holeybartender and LifeOnMars got ?

    • kma99

      I hurt his feelings too much.

    • LifeOnMars
    • kma99

      You really linked vgchartz really, really dude?

    • LifeOnMars

      You do realise the Xbox One is selling very poorly, or are you in denial?

    • kma99

      So is that what you assume or you’re going off the fact that ps4 is selling more? Sometime tells me you’re going off the latter. A division that making 9 billion doesnt sound like it’s selling poorly

    • LifeOnMars

      It’s not rocket science.

    • kma99

      Then dont make it rocker science. Prove to me that it’s not selling well and what’s your measuring stick.

    • LifeOnMars

      It would be a total waste of my time. You are in denial .

    • kma99

      Yeah of course it would be. That’s code word for “I don’t have anything of the sort”.

    • LifeOnMars

      Zźzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    • kma99

      Everyone is falling asleep waiting on you to back up your ridiculous claim.

    • LifeOnMars

      Zźzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    • kma99

      Don’t be bitter, you tried.

    • LifeOnMars

      Zzźzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    • kma99

      Cheer up little pocohantas

    • Fweds

      You do realise the Xbox is selling very well, it’s far ahead of where the 360 was in the same timeframe.
      The only real difference is that the PS4 was selling amazingly well, though of course you went into fanboy mode and post a negative comment rather than simple facts.

    • LifeOnMars

      Prove to me that it’s selling well and what’s your source.

    • Fweds

      Firstly my sources are better than your FAKE Upvotes.

      I have already pointed out my sources on the fact that it’s outselling Xbox 360 in the same timeframe, as revealed by EA, Game etc.

      I have just noticed you was called out by ‘tokma99’ to show your sources when you tried to make out you knew what the sales were (in a negative way of course) earlier in these posts but you Failed to answer in any way, obviously.(other than try to sneak in Vgchartz LOL)

      So my sources are from EA and Game, so what are your sources ?

    • LifeOnMars

      USA sales no doubt.

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      No, it isnt! and has fallen behind 360 sales now. You should update your numbers.

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      Games?another ps4 exclusive launches today! there are more than 20 this year but where are the xbox exclusives?…?

      Oh! right! you are still scared to answer that… https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e8c0e44f1be1dda38bf16cf537f7c92ef39eb7ed0030423f3147e8572e5b3a46.gif

      Yawn. Get back to me when you can answer a question

    • Holeybartender
    • THE4point2TFLOPweakness

      You dont have a brain because it disappeared the first time you flushed the toilet. After all you’re a Sony Pony.

    • Holeybartender

      Oooo,a toddler’s Poo Poo Head joke. Aww,did being wrong give your soft,underdeveloped head a wittle boo-boo? I’m sowwy,would you like your Spencer binky?

    • THE4point2TFLOPweakness

      If only you were Smart Mr. Sony Pony hahaha

    • Holeybartender

      Oh suuure…your a real genius with that childish wit of yours.

    • THE4point2TFLOPweakness

      You’re not a genius for sure for buying a PSBore trash hahaha

    • Holeybartender

      Being wrong all the time must sting so much.

    • THE4point2TFLOPweakness

      Pony loser hahaha

    • Holeybartender

      Still wrong.

    • well, no… they do. they have a few games. they may have distracted most people by showing their cards years in advance, but E3 w016 was a while ago. 2018 looks stacked.

    • Fweds

      Correct, and of the two he quotes one was originally just DLC – Uncharted: The Lost Legacy that would of been about 10 dollars but instead they release it as a standalone charge full price and make it out to be a whole new game !!

      The other GTS sport is a limited arcade racer with No weather,day and No night cycle , only about 170 cars and cut out trees etc.

      I’m surprised MS don’t get in on this i.e release Forza Horizon Hotwheels as a standalone and get far more profit and of course can add it to their list of game releases as Sony are doing.

    • QUIMICOMORTAL
  • We know the Sony 2018 lineup is strong. We’ve seen everything for ’18&19 at their E3 conference they showed in 2016… and the exact same conference in 2017.

    • Smart guy

      Lol true

    • Mr Xrat

      “We’ve seen everything for ’18&19 at their E3 conference they showed in 2016… and the exact same conference in 2017.”

      It’s OK when Microsoft does it though.

  • Mr Xrat

    EDGE must have got their notes mixed up. It’s the Xbone that’s sans the exclusives.

    More delay games. Sony your holiday line up is weak.

  • Ocelot forgot his meds

    Timed exclusive 3rd person single player games, dead a month after launch and playable on PC, inferior multiplats, a joke of an online service, no back compat and a fraud of company photoshopping games running on the X…no thanks. The Xxxx for me.

  • QUIMICOMORTAL
  • kma99

    Lol and when did you see me bragging about crackdown? Get back to me when you provide some reference. P.S. try not to upvotes yourself a million times.

  • kma99

    So your point is it brag about something I dont brag about. Yeah that’s clever lol. Get back at me when you provide some info of me actually caring.

  • kma99

    Lol I knew you would copy and paste that lol. So predictable that you would skip every other comment where you ask me about the exclusives coming this year. Again you asked a question and I answered I just didn’t spout out about crackdown for no apparent reason lol. Try harder lol

  • kma99

    Of course I knew but you were dumb enough to post it anyway lol. A man posting half truths to try and prove a point that he failed to prove lol. Typical sony fanboy behavior.

  • kma99

    Apparently you sonytards dont know the definition of anything lol. You posted a comment of me talking about exclusives and not just crackdown. Then you proceed to come back and use it to say I was bragging about crackdown lol. Typical behavior for you. I can’t expect anything better from a guy who post under multiple names then deletes comments when he gets caught.

  • kma99

    I’m desperate but you resurrected an old threat to brag about something no one debated lol yeah ok.

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      You are desperate! its so rare and refreshing watching you say the truth for a change!
      Its months “old” BUT YOU SAID IT! so, are you saying your brain cant remember what you said moths ago or that you do not hold yourself acountable for what you said months ago? LOL

      In any case, what counts is that YOU ARE DESPERATE!

      LMAO case closed!

      #suckstobeanxbot

    • kma99

      U sent the comment to me but I’m desperate lol. That sounds desperate.

  • kma99

    Says the guy desperate to make an issue of a game I didnt have an issue with lol. Your desperation is PATHETIC

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      Yes! your desperation that forced you to answer with ps4 games and unreleased games just to say aything really showed! AND IT WAS PATHETIC!

      Your lame attempt to try to dismiss your stupid responde just cause it was months old was also pathetic.

      In fact, YOU are pathetic as the xbone is and its lineup! so you deserve each other!

      #suckstobeanxbot

    • kma99

      Lol you are really trying hard aren’t you? I thought you were trying to brag about crackdown, now since that didnt work you are wayyyyyyy out in left field with your little tirade lol. Stay on topic since you assumed I cared so much.

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      LOL wrong again dumbass! I MOCKED you about crapdown!

      You then dared me to prove you you did care about brick exclusives and..I DID! As I always do!

      you have been squirming after that!

    • kma99

      You mocked me about crackdown for what? Oh yeah you assumed I cared since it was delayed even though you tried to prove I did care and failed. You cut and pasted a comment where I listed games for the xbox not just crackdown lol. How stupid can you get lol. Stay on school little one.

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      For being yet another exclusive you wont get this year!

      Now, look at the sneaky coward Kma99 trying to change the truth again, I posted a comment of you NAMING WHAT YOU THOUGHT were 2017 released xbone exclusives LOL see the difference? And theye werent all 2017, nor already released or even xbone exclusives! so you truly showed how stupid can you get!

      I am taking losers like you to school almot on a daly basis!

      You are welcome!

      #kma99issoangry

    • kma99

      And yet you assumed I cared lol. Cared so much you jumped the gun and tried to justify it by posting a list of exclusives I named off back in April lol. Pathetic lol

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      Yes you just forgotten you had so you dared me to prove it! But, als, I oustmarted you like I always do. But you were as pathetic back then as you are now!

      Flawless victory!

      #onlywaitingfortimedexclusiveindies

    • kma99

      So I forgot that I was bragging about crackdown so you reminded me by not reminding me because you have no proof lol. Strange little man you are.

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      So you were so desperate for 2017 xbone exclusives that you included 3 year old ps4 game and unreleased games, and I reminded you when you thought I couldn’t do it. That’s a very good proof!

      Just cause you want to forget how you embarrassed yourself four months ago doesn’t mean you didn’t do it! Sneaky little man!

    • kma99

      I wasn’t desperate for anything dummy Lol. I own every console plus a pc but you wouldn’t know anything about that because you’re a broke ps4 owner lol. I’m desperate to take my 3rd vacation of this year while you cry over crackdown
