Sony is looking to bolster the appeal of its latest games console, with the Japanese manufacturer confirming that more than 100 PS4 games will be released this year.
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:
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.”
They added that the PS4 “could easily become lead platform for Western and Japanese developer / publishers.”
