Despite a number of high-profile PS4 game delays marring the console’s official release, Sony has suggested the postponed titles will actually help the next-gen console.
With the PS4 having launched in the UK in the early hours of this morning, the Xbox One rival has landing without a number of its promised big name launch titles. With Killzone: Shadow Fall arguable the console’s only high-profile, exclusive game at launch, the recently confirmed delays to the likes of Watch Dogs and Drive Club have angered many games.
Despite disappointing some, Sony has now suggested that these PS4 game delays could actually benefit the next-gen console as it moves past the lucrative Christmas window.
He added that the delayed PS4 games “will help momentum into next year and help people get past the first 30 or so titles.”
Although having left some pre-order gamers feeling slightly let down and cheated, Gara has suggested that the PS4 game delays will not affect early sales of the console.
“Given the momentum and the demand there is for PlayStation 4, selling the early units doesn’t feel terribly difficult,” he told us.
Claiming that gamers will eventually benefit from the delays, he added: “It is a slight disappointment [that Watch Dogs has been delayed], the timing isn’t as we had hoped. We have said we are for the players and we would rather they have a great game slightly later than a good game early.”
Helping spread the company’s range of big name launches, Gara suggested: “We look in great shape going into 2014 with a long line of titles already announced.”
