PS4 First Party Line-Up “Not As Strong” in 2015 – Sony
SCE Australia’s Michael Ephraim says next year’s line-up “looks incredible”.
Though the PS4 had two good releases this year with Bloodborne and Until Dawn (The Order: 1886 was…disappointing to say the least), it hasn’t quite been as good as the Xbox One’s first party line-up. Managing director for Sony Computer Entertainment Australia Michael Ephraim spoke to GameSpot about the same during the PlayStation 20th Anniversary event in Sydney and admitted that this year’s first party line-up for PS4 wasn’t as strong it should have been.
“Games that have been released this year, from Destiny, Call of Duty, Star Wars – most of them we have a collaboration with for additional content if you play on PlayStation 4, so we’re pretty confident with the way Christmas is going. The demand is strong. We have worked very closely with third parties this year because our first party line-up was not as a strong as we would have liked.”
That being said, 2016 is looking much brighter for Sony. As Ephraim states, “Next year, our first party line-up looks incredible. You’ve got Street Fighter, Uncharted 4, No Man’s Sky, The Last Guardian, Gran Turismo. These are all exclusives, and two of them are new franchises.”
