Sony Sign 21 Publishers To Produce Exclusive PS4 Content

List includes EA, Activision, Ubisoft, Capcom, Rockstar and more

Sean Coleman, Sony Computer Entertainment America’s group manager of retail training and advocacy, hit the stage at the GameStop Expo in Las Vegas last weekend to share a 21-strong list of third-party developers Sony is working with on “exclusive game content".

“We’ve forged great third-party partnerships with some of the biggest developers to bring exclusive game content to PlayStation gamers which creates the best place to play,” Coleman said.

Unfortunately, much of the list is shrouded in mystery, and it's important to note that "exclusive game content" could be anything from a full game to a DLC hat.

Here's the list in any case, with known titles and exclusive DLC, courtesy of Gematsu:

  • Activision Blizzard – Diablo III content
  • Atlus
  • Bethesda Games – The Elder Scrolls Online exclusive PlayStation 4 beta
  • Bluepoint Games – “Bringing a Sony classic to current game systems”
  • Bungie – Destiny content
  • Capcom – Deep Down
  • Disney Interactive
  • EA
  • Insomniac Games
  • Konami
  • Level-5
  • Nordic Games
  • Rockstar Games
  • Sanzaru Games
  • Sega
  • Square Enix
  • Sumo Digital
  • Take-Two
  • Ubisoft – Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag content, Watch Dogs content
  • Warner Bros. – Batman: Arkham Origins cntent
  • Zindagi Games

Coleman also added, “If you compare PlayStation 4 visuals side by side with any other gaming console, PlayStation 4 will look better every time." He also revealed that the $60 Playstation Camera will support voice commands, facial recognition and full-body movement tracking.

That's pretty good.

In my opinion yet another thing Sony have done better over MS, though at 1st, it did look like MS may well have beaten Sony here.

Sure as hell looks like Sony are playing to win and playing hard!

It's hard to say either company (MS/Sony) has got one over on the other, really.
I suspect a lot of those companies have made virtually identical deals with both Microsoft and Sony - and ultimately the consumer loses out.

Make your new game with ten maps/courses/levels.
Call six of them the standard game.
Make two of them exclusive to Sony, for a fee, and two of them exclusive to Microsoft, again for a fee.

Without those exclusivity deals we'd get all ten maps on both consoles...

The Insomniac Games exclusive has got to be Ratchet & Clank Into The Nexus.

That's a PS3 game, isn't it?

To me, this 21 publishers on board sounds more impressive than Xbox having CoD and Fifa timed exclusives (or whatever it was).

My hopes are that Atlus will be bringing the inevitable Persona 5 to the PS4, SEGA are working on a new Valkyria Chronicles and everyone else can just surprise us with some interesting IP.

One of the few who doesn't mind games being console exclusive. Those titles have proven to be some of the best of this generation with zero compromise on being the best products the developers could make at the time.

You forget the store exclusive pre-orders too ;) So they make 14 levels with 1 exclusive to GAME on the Xbox and one for Amazon, then another 2 for the PS4 version store exclusives. THEN you have the console exclusive ones too as you said.

The money from these deals is budgeted in though, they may have only made 8 without any exclusive deals.
