PS4 lead system architect Mark Cerny has said the upcoming console will feature the strongest line-up of any Sony console.
Cerny, who's also heading up development on Sony Japan platformer Knack, told Gamasutra: "The launch line-up for PlayStation 4 - though I unfortunately can't give the title count - is going to be stronger than any prior PlayStation hardware."
Cerny recently admitted that the hardware design principals that underpinned PS3 caused "some issues" for developers, but said a strong PS4 launch line-up will be the result of the new console's familiar, developer-friendly architecture.
"The biggest thing is we didn't want the hardware to be a puzzle that programmers would be needing to solve in order to make quality titles.
"The hope with PlayStation 4 was to have a powerful architecture, but also an architecture that would be a very familiar architecture in many ways.
"Ultimately," Cerny added, "we are trying to strike a balance between features which you can use day one, and features which will allow the system to evolve over the years, as gaming itself evolves."
