The PS4 Makes A Strong Case With Its Exclusive Content
In light of the terrible disaster that was the PS3 reveal, you would be excused for being a little nervous about how Sony was going to handle the new console. Seriously, the phrase “599 American dollars” is burned into my brain. However, they came out strong this year with not only a downright impressive conference, but one that shored up one of their biggest weaknesses: third-party content.
Running down the list of developers parterning with Sony, some impressive names pop out. Bungie announced exclusive PlayStation content for their new title Destiny. Capcom has a new open-world RPG in the works. Valve may be busy with their own projects, but Gabe’s newfound love for the PlayStation will likely benefit the system. Jonathan Blow and his team at Thekla are bringing The Witness to the console. Three words: Freaking Diablo III!

Nice. In a surprising twist, you’ll notice that little gold diamond in the corner. Yep, Sony will be partnering with Sony for the PS4. Other slightly more interesting developers of note are:
Team 17 (Worms!)
Warner Bros. Games
Arc System Works
With friends like that, it doesn’t bode well for your enemies. If Sony can keep the price competitive and carry this momentum into E3, the world may be in for a real doozy with the PS4.
