Sony fires at Xbox with arsenal of big PS4 games

Sony has offered tantalizing glimpses of a raft of new virtual reality games for its PS4 games console ahead of the E3 games show in Los Angeles. Software sales on the system are also impressive, with more than 487.8 million games sold at retail and digitally during the same period.

A PlayStation "ecosystem" that includes online game communities, content and services had more than 70 million monthly active users as of the end of March, according to Sony.

Sony today confirmed that its PlayStation 4 console has sold through more than 60 million units worldwide.

PlayStation has also become the prime driver of revenue and profit at the Japan-based entertainment giant Sony, executives say.

"We are very grateful for our fans and partners around the globe who have continued to support PS4", Sony;s President and Global CEO Andrew House remarked.

Sony is predicting shipments of the PS4 to slow down, from 20 million in the year ended March 2017 to 18 million in the year ahead. Yesterday, Sony had a rather short 60-minute event where they showcased games we already knew were coming out. If the games of E3 did not appeal, there are more to come.

Sony revealed a host of first-party games including new editions in its "God of War" and "Shadow of Colossus" game franchises, which are exclusive to PS4.

Speaking with Indonesian website 'JagatPlay', Yoshida-San was asked about PlayStation Experience and the Tokyo Game Show.
