I don't think the mantra was ever that greatness was "never coming;" just that it was "still waiting," which was completely true. At least from the many PS4 games I played, there hasn't been a single PS4 game, exclusive or not, that came even remotely close to the quality that seems to be coming from Bloodborne. At least when it comes to PS4/XBO, next gen truly starts with Bloodborne.
EDIT: I lied. Forgot about Guilty Gear.
Well, this is new.
