Sony is building up the hype train for the PS4 exclusives on the horizon for the console as well as showing off some past successes. Sony has been dominating the console market for quite some time with the PS4, and the biggest boost they’ve gotten toward that would undoubtedly be the continued focus on exclusive titles. Check out Sony’s sizzle reel below.
Sony has a lot to be proud of, and a lot riding on their upcoming titles. The trailer showcases previous exclusives like Horizon Zero Dawn, Uncharted The Lost Legacy and the recent Shadow of the Colossus remake. We also get some quick shots of the big titles on the way to the console with God Of War, Days Gone, The Last Of Us 2, Detroit: Become Human and Insomniac’s Spider-Man.
The next big installment for Sony and the PS4 is coming next month with the release of Santa Monica Studio’s God Of War. This is a series that has always been incredibly popular but hasn’t seen a major release since 2013’s God Of War Ascension which was a prequel to the entire franchise. This new installment is focusing on the growth of Kratos as a character since we last saw him butchering the gods of Mount Olympus. He now has a son and is attempting to be a good father while moving on from the rage that once consumed his entire existence.
Sony has definitely been on an upswing for years now, and that’s largely due to the success of their exclusive titles that have mostly focused on single player rich narratives. God Of war and Detroit: Become Human are both ambitious titles that could be huge for Sony. Those both release in the next two months, while titles like Days Gone, Spider-Man and The Last Of Us 2 have yet to gain any solid release timing.
Each one of the PS4 exclusives in this lineup offers two things, a pushing of the tech possible on consoles, and delivering strong narrative focuses on characters, their growth, and their stories. This is why Sony has been succeeding in their attempts to corner what’s possible on a home console. This isn’t to say that Nintendo and Microsoft don’t have great consoles with great offerings because they do, but I’ve found some truly unforgettable experiences on Sony platforms that look like they will continue well into 2018 and 2019.
