Some are first party exclusives while others are “timed” or console exclusives.
Back in December, Sony’s Shu Yoshida talked about how he thought 2016 was going to be a very big year for the PS4. Now the company has come out and underlined just why Yoshida-san was so bullish on the console this year. A new video has surfaced that details 20 “exclusives” that are coming to the PS4 in 2016. Some of the games are first party games, such as Uncharted 4 and Horizon: Zero Dawn while others are games that will either be console exclusives or will be released on the PS4 first.
Among the games in this second group that should still get gamers plenty fired up are titles like Firewatch and Hellblade. Some of the games in the video are ones that we’ve been waiting for quite a while and others are smaller and lesser known titles Sony is still hoping will be plenty big and plenty popular among its fanbase. One little interesting tidbit that pops up at the end of the video is the note that the Beta for No Man’s Sky will be available sometime in 2016.
Considering that most people thought the entire game was coming at some point in 2016, this might mean the title has been unofficially pushed back yet again. There would not need to have specifically laid out the Beta was happening in 2016, since the game fits in the console exclusive category. No Man’s Sky is slated for a PC release but for now there aren’t plans to put it on the Xbox One.
