Sony fires at Xbox with arsenal of big PS4 games

Sony Interactive Entertainment has accumulated a total of 60.4 million PlayStation 4 console sales worldwide since the system debuted in 2013.

Before the firm's main briefing got under way, it announced a new feature for PlayStation owners - PlayLink, which lets friends join gaming experiences via their smartphones. Over the same period 487.8 million copies of games played on the console have been sold.

Along with strong hardware sales, the PlayStation 4 has enjoyed a phenomenal software attach rate throughout its lifetime.

Sony added that PSN now has more than 70m monthly active users as of the end of March, and that 26.4m of those pay for a PlayStation Plus subscription. This year's show will definitely be even more stacked, and may also be home to another Capcom tournament, just as last year was for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, which had just released for PlayStation 4 during that week.

Sony originally revealed a new God of War game at last year's E3, and now we saw a fresh gameplay footage at E3 2017.

This query started trending on the internet immediately after the trailer aired at E3 2017, what exactly Sony is doing new with Shadow of the Colossus for PS4?

There's nothing new here other than that Sony is dipping back into their old treasure trove of great IP that came out during the PS2 era in order to sell people old popular games with a new coat of paint.

The event featured several upcoming titles for PlayStation VR as well, including "The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim", "Bravo Team", "Final Fantasy 15, "Moss", "Superhot VR" and an adventure game called "Starchild". And as far as Sony is concerned, the PS4 platform is in its prime as the company looks ahead to more exclusive games, partner titles, and VR gaming.

And Sony affirms PS4's portfolio will continue to expand on the software front with new and highly anticipated games including GUNDAM VERSUS, DRAGON QUEST XI, Gran Turismo Sport, and Everybody's Golf (SIE WWS).
