There’s no spin here, this is a pretty solid year 1 lineup. Diverse genres and art style. Usually PS consoles start slow and ramp up so this is an aggressive tactic to establish an early lead and snowball from there. This is especially effective knowing Xbox won’t be (finally) ramping up until 2022.



Xbox: Best hardware, Game Pass best value, best BC, more 1st party genres and multiplayer titles.

Really looking forward to Horizon Forbidden west, so this is great news for me.

I have a feeling God of War will be pushed to 2022 though. The last one was released about two years ago, and with everything going on I find it hard to believe it will land in 2021.

Perhaps a lot of assets and even map sections will be reused (remember there several portals were blocked? Perhaps those will be new areas, but the main world and some of the others will be reused), perhaps the assets were made nextgen ready (the game took a lot longer to release than previous GoW).

I will believe in GT7 first half of 2021 only when it releases xD

On the day prior to release they inform a delay of 24 months =p

I just hope PS keeps tradition of also improve over gen instead of now that they will have a strong first year then have worse late year.

Well it looks like their best of the best devs (Naughty Dog, Santa Monica, Sucker Punch, Insomniac, and Guerilla) will have released their titles in 2020-2021. They won’t be ready again until 2023 at the earliest. So it really depends how much damage Sony can do in 2021 because of 2022 just cant match their current output.

Will pray that they have second team able to release good games in the interim.

I don't believe any release dates that Sony confirms, especially for Gran Turismo. GT5, Last Guardian, The Last of Us 2, HDMI 2.1 for their TV's... just to name a few popular ones. Unfortunately delays are very common nowadays, not only for Sony but for other publishers as well. They just go for the publicity and marketing.

I'll somewhat agree on the basis since we see a lot of publishers announcing gaming years or months earlier than the games are actually ready (beyond imprivisible events of course) especially for most of the AAA games recently.

Publicity wise, you'd of course want to announce your bigger guns early cuz it gives the promise of this bright future and the worthness of an early investment in their console.

Still, if Sony manages to make all these titles announced, ready in it's first year, I'll have to congratulate them just like I did when Nintendo hit all those heavy hitter in the first year. Could say they may have taken a chance with this strategy since it had been succesful enough for Ninty. I mean a lot of these titles became the flagship titles and evergreen on the platform. Sony is bidding for a similar result I think.

Sony better triple production if they're dropping all these games in 2021 lol.

Don't worry, LoD Remake wasn't announced yet, the peak will be later.

Sadly nothing will come close to it again after it, tho.

Yep, start of the gen is the time where you are really allowed to give just teases or announce a game that will release 5 years later, after that keep it on a 2 years window and even better announce the games that are planned to release between one E3 and the other.
