Sony Planning 'Spectacular' E3 2014 Lineup for PlayStation 4

Posted by Sammy Barker

Massive year ahead

It’s been a couple of months since the PlayStation 4 officially launched, but Sony has still managed to keep the majority of its upcoming exclusive content under wraps. That’s caused some impatient pundits to ponder whether the platform holder actually has any worthwhile first-party titles to announce – but judging by comments made by hardware marketing executive John Koller, the company’s merely biding its time until E3 2014.

“It’s going to be a massive content year,” the suit said of the fast-approaching show. “We’ve talked publically that there’s a huge and significant amount of games coming this year to the PS4. We’ll be showing a lot of those and it's going to be an exciting moment for many people. I can officially confirm that what is coming next is really spectacular.”

Koller added that the types of titles on the horizon are “absolutely fantastic”, and will help to show what makes the Japanese giant’s new system “special”. He continued: “There’s a lot of innovation – that’s something that we really want to push. This is going to be one of those years where we’re going to have a fun time showing lots of new games to the world.”

Perhaps the most exciting thing is that we’ve hardly heard a peep from a large number of the platform holder’s internal studios, including outfits such as Media Molecule and Sony Bend. With the manufacturer recently hinting that all of its teams are busy with the next-gen machine, it certainly has a shot at bringing the roof down in Los Angeles.

Indeed, while many have lamented the firm’s decision to keep so much of its software secret, we think that this strategy is going to pay dividends in the long-term. The big question is: what are you most eager to see? Personally, the supposed space escapade in production at Sony Santa Monica has been keeping us up at night – but don’t forget to share your thoughts in the comments section below.

It may not PS4 related, but I'd love to see a western release date for Persona 5. And as far as the PS4 is concerned I'd like to see some JRPG's coming to the new console. Maybe a new Tales?

They better show us hard-hitters- like Silverback said, we need less indies. In place of Indies, awesome games that beef up the library so it is more appetizing to fork over the 400 bucks to get PS4 (that was the major complaint even by people who have the PS4- lack of AAA's and stuff).

I have to agree too. While I have been enjoying the indie games like Resogun and Don't Starve I am ready to see some hard hitters that Sony has been talking about.

That's good to hear, hopefully they'll blow away the competition with exclusive announcements.

Hmm. Are these amazing 'new' announcements really going to release this year? I doubt it. Please prove me wrong.

If we're lucky maybe Sony has one or two games that are far along, it just don't want to announce them just yet to avoid a DriveClub Situation. We'll see though. I'll say this, there's no doubt in my mind Sony will have good games at E3 because it always does, however, the vast, and when I say vast I mean about 95%, of these games better be big hitting AAA retail games. Some from first parties, some from third and I'd also like to see Sony chase some third party exclusives like MS has been doing. And though I don't expect it, have Insomniac present, that company has been a huge part of what makes PlayStation consoles great and it's a shame if there was a falling out. Get them on Resistance 4 or a new IP, and advertise the crap out of it for once. Part of the reason Resistance never took off is because Sony's advertising for it was non-existent.

@Gamer83 yeah, I'll be happy with one or two games a month on the ps4 from spring time. I'm not greedy and nearly everything that's being developed so far looks good and interests me. I loved the resistance games 1/2 and burning skies on vita. I never got round to 3 but I thought they were really a lot of fun and also too playing the nostalgic co op too. So easy to pick and play anytime and blast up some alien scum.

Star Wars 1313 has been shelved and will no longer have any production time spent on it and Lucasarts has dropped the trademark on it also.

Sony, E3 is a long way from now. After two months of the PS4's release and there is no new game in sight... come on.

@Damiien666 I know but one can dream. The force unleashed was some fun but It could be so much more. 1313 being dumped is ridiculous, maybe sega will pick it up and make a mess of it :)

It amuses me that people would doubt Sony at this point, especially with the number of studios which make exclusive games for them. Do people really think that they just won't bother making games now that the PS4 is out?
