With the PS4 launch line up having largely been branded as underwhelming by consumers and critics alike, with the console exclusive Killzone: Shadow Fall the only major highlight, Sony has revealed that gamers will be offered a much broader array of content over the coming 12 months.

Making the announcement via its official PlayStation Twitter feed, Sony declared: “Here's a fun fact: More than 100 PS4 games are planned for release in 2014.”

Although promising a mass of new PS4 games over the coming year, Sony has yet to detail any new details, with further title announcements expected to be made during E3 2014 in June.

At present bitter rival Microsoft has yet to detail how many new Xbox One games owners of the next-gen console can expect this year.

With a broad array of games sure to boost console sales, earlier this week industry analysts with DFC Intelligence predicted than both the PS4 and Xbox One will exceed 100 million console sales during the lifecycle of the devices.

Despite joint lofty predictions, it has been suggested that the PS4 currently has the edge over its Microsoft-branded rival.

“Price and strength in Europe give the PlayStation 4 a slight edge,” DFC’s researches noted.”

If these games actual come out than I will have to say, the wait was worth it. Waiting 3 months for games is much better than waiting for 3 years.

Also, apparently PS4 and Xbox will sell over 100 million. (other sources say the prediction is by 2020.)

100 games are planned to release in 2014.

Too bad all of those are multiplats and bad indie games. RIP Sony :(

Everyone's always saying this.

#7 Posted by MlauTheDaft (2736 posts) -

I expect that number includes everything they have under the sun ;)

100 treats for real gamers. xboners are finished yet again.

@Jakandsigz: I'm just wondering how many of these games are Indie games and how many are actual exclusive full titles. Only Indie titles I care about on PS4 are Rime, Helldivers and No Man's Sky. If any of these games are in that 100, I'll be happy. I'm sure XB1 will be getting most of these games, plus they still have a slew of their own exclusives to launch this year as well.

Is there ever? I'd even take a little Uncharted 4 or Jak & Daxter news.

How many exclusive non Indy games? Doesn't matter, none of them can compete with Xbox one exclusives IMO.

#11 Posted by lhughey (4159 posts) -

That's a nice number. But as always, that number will get reduced once the year gets going. Development usually takes longer than expected. And if they're Japanese developers, they seem to fall way behind. Still, I'm looking forward to seeing what they have planned for the big gaming conferences.

Such as what in 2014?

#13 Posted by kuu2 (6400 posts) -

Its almost laughable how much history repeats itself. We heard the same things with the PelayStation 3.

Don't tell me, show me........

#14 Edited by Gue1 (8082 posts) -

80 of those 100 games will be indies that will get overlooked I bet.

#15 Posted by bbkkristian (14305 posts) -

What they didn't tell you: most are indie games.

#16 Edited by always_explicit (2134 posts) -

Pretty sure drive club was supposed to be here by now...promises promises promises.

Anyway lets not pretend....half of these titles will be undies. I hate it when Sony and MS do this....cut the bull and give us some real information.

I call bull.

50 if they are lucky

pfft games already out like Killer Instinct and Crimson Dragon. If youre a KI fan and played Panzer Dragoon as a kid on the Sega Saturn then those game alone should interest you WAY more than anything Sony is offering this year. Titanfall comes out next month, one of the most anticpated games of 2014. Halo is set for 2014. Theirs already a good overhead Halo game for download. What more do you need for 2014?

So are they keeping the whole 100 for Q3 and 4? Cuz i want to play something NOW.

#20 Posted by ConanTheStoner (3839 posts) -

Ha, I remember them saying the exact same thing early on with the PS3... not sure if they made good on that promise or not, but obviously most of those "100 games" weren't worth a mention.

Not sure why companies feel the need to say this stuff, everyone knows that launch year is a rough one. Showing us a handful of good exclusives means much more than telling us a big number with nothing to back it up.

#21 Edited by RR360DD (11069 posts) -

90 of which are indies. Yay

#22 Posted by X_CAPCOM_X (5961 posts) -

How is this possibly a bad thing? What's wrong with you fanboys?

#23 Posted by PrincessGomez92 (2564 posts) -

Apparently indie games are terrible.

#24 Posted by FoxbatAlpha (4606 posts) -

Just like the 32 launch games. We all know how stellar that went. Lol 100

#25 Posted by Deevoshun (839 posts) -

They said this about the PS3 and they were no where near that number. But the fans will eat this up, give me a list of names for those 100 games and maybe we can believe this.

#26 Posted by X_CAPCOM_X (5961 posts) -

Like hotline miami? That game is great.

100 is quite a number, and there's literally nothing bad about having more games.

Missing about 10 more games out of the supposedly 100

________________________________________________

Anywho, I agree in a way that it's quite underwhelming, but then again; reading game titles from a list is obviously much more bland than actually seeing the games in action so perhaps i'm just jumping the gun waay far ahead.

Regardless, i'm excited for whats to come for the future of the PS4.

Bring it on, Sony.

#31 Posted by kemar7856 (11490 posts) -

crappy list tbh maybe 3 games I would actually buy on there

#32 Posted by Eisen_Howl (83 posts) -

@kemar7856:

I agree to an extent.

But like i said, it's easy to be underwhelmed by list of names.

Once you see gameplay, however, i'm sure the perception would be MUCH different - provided the game looks awesome.

At 1st this was amusing. Then it's just meh and now it's just plain annoying. You'd think years of this crap would be enough but it's looking like it'll never stop.

#34 Posted by CrownKingArthur (1972 posts) -

won't buy a console based on upcoming games. once the more appealing games are out on these consoles, i might be convinced.

#35 Posted by Jakandsigz (4512 posts) -

PSN does not have arcade, it's just PSN.

#36 Edited by lamprey263 (21022 posts) -

is Sony counting the same game releasing in various regions as multiple games?

At least they're keeping something for the end of the year. MS keeps their usual three games for 2016!
