Sony has rather surprisingly outright stated that PlayStation 4 games are in development.
The revelation was made by the company's senior vice president, Scott Rohde, who told GTTV that there was simply no space to fit a moment for the PlayStation 4 during their E3 press conference due to the influx of PS3 titles that were on display.
We’re not talking about when the machine is coming out, but I think anyone on the planet knows that, of course, games are in development.
Expanding on his point, Rohde stated that 2012 isn't the year that was suitable for an unveiling of the PlayStation 4.
It was just something we didn’t feel was important to bring up this year. We had probably five or ten other games that probably deserved stage time that didn’t get it, right? We always have so much to talk about that we felt we didn’t need to talk about that just yet.
Furthermore, the executive stressed that the PlayStation 2 is still selling well in certain regions, which has led to Sony feeling more comfortable with longer life cycles for their platforms.
Believe it or not, PlayStation 2 still sells well in some parts of the world, so we’re still supporting that to a degree. It’s the way this company is set up – to handle those sorts of things – so it’s not something we’re concerned about.
It's no surprise that games for the PlayStation 4 are in development; practically everyone should know that companies such as Sony and Microsoft started work on the next-gen as soon as their current-gen consoles launched. It obviously takes a good few years to create the actual system itself, with game development commencing a year or two before the platform sees a release.
However, what is surprising is the nature of how this confirmation was made. You won't see Microsoft outright confirming the existence of games on the Xbox 360's successor, let alone even comment on the matter of next-gen.
