Mark Cerny: “PlayStation 4 Has the Strongest Launch Line-up of Any Hardware We’ve Ever Launched”

Today Mark Cerny, that has been almost unanimously defined the father of PlayStation 4, held a keynote at the Develop conference, and during a follow-up interview he gave a few additional details about the feedback received from development studios and the console’s launch line-up:

The feedback from the developers is quite good. They appreciate the accessibility of the hardware, and that’s really apparent in the the launch line-up.┬áPlayStation 4 has the strongest Line-up of any hardware we’ve ever launched.

Considering how important it is to launch with a solid library of games — And Sony learned this lesson the hard way with both the PS3 and the PS Vita — I would say it’s a relief to hear that Cerny is confident on the PS4’s launch line-up. Will it be sufficient to propel the console to success and glory? We’ll have to wait and see about that, but we can most certainly hope.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
