Sony Computer Entertainment expects the lineup of video games available at the launch of PlayStation 4 will be the strongest ever. The company is confident that not only the first-party titles that Sony’s own studios will release are going be competitive, but also the third-party titles are projected to be very strong.

“With PlayStation 4, what's exciting, is we can see the strength in depth of titles come through – not just in first party but third party, and I really believe PlayStation 4 will have the strongest launch line-up we have ever had. I think there are big genres that we want to cover but we want to innovate within them and move them on,” said Michael Denny, vice president of Sony’s Worldwide Studios, in an interview with CVG web-site.

So far, three studios have demonstrated ability to unleash their PlayStation 4 titles at the launch of the console, which is due in “holiday 2013. Sony’s Guerilla Games plans to release Killzone Shadow Fall; Evolution Studios plans to unveil DriveClub; Ubisoft Montreal intends to roll out Watch Dogs. It is also possible that Sony will introduce Knack game.

For Sony, it is crucial to ensure availability of high-quality titles at launch of its next-gen PlayStation 4 console in order to sell more hardware to hardcore gamers, who appreciate advanced titles and can pay even increased prices for games.

Separately, Electronic Arts said that it has not decided about the price of PS4 and Xbox Next titles. In theory, EA may increase the prices for launch titles from $49 - $59 to $69.

“Typically at the start of a cycle you've seen the pricing raised to, say, $69 for a core piece of software. Then over the life of those it's drifted down to an introduction price of around $59. We have not yet set pricing on our gen-fours but you'll probably see a similar trend to that during the start of the next cycle,” said Blake Jorgensen, chief financial officer of Electronic Arts, at the Morgan Stanley technology, media & telecom conference, reports Polygon web-site.
