Sony also confirms over 100 games for PSVR.
Yesterday’s Sony’s Paris Games Week showing was rather spectacular. With new announcements such as Ghost of Tsushima, OnRush and Oure along with new gameplay footage for The Last of Us Part2, Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds, Spider-Man and Detroit Become Human, Sony have set their message straight. The message being that games matter and that is what the PS4 will continue to deliver in the next two years or so.
With Sony’s newest console, the PlayStation 4 Pro, over a year old on the market, one has to wonder how developers are supporting the console. Sony’s head of global sales and marketing, Jim Ryan has confirmed that over 225 games support the PS4 Pro with graphical enhancements. However, he didn’t made it clear whether this number includes future releases. Intrestingly, this number actually puts it above the 150 titles that will be graphically enhanced on Xbox One X.
The higher number is expected given that the console is out for more than a year but given that more and more developers are likely to make their games PS4 Pro enhanced, that number will only increase. The same is applicable for the Xbox One X so it will be interesting to see how this comparison develops in the coming months. It also seems that many developers were waiting for the Xbox One X to arrive and then launch patches for both systems. The recently confirmed PS4 Pro and Xbox One X patches for The Witcher 3 attest to this assumption.
He also confirmed that the PS4 has over 100 games which support PSVR (again he didn’t made it clear whether this number includes future releases). Finally he confirmed that developers will continue to extract more and more out of the PS4 and PS4 Pro’s power resulting into spectacular results.
