Though the PlayStation 4 has gotten off to a hot start, the console's best days are still to come, according to Sony UK executive Fergal Gara. In a new interview, Gara said the PS4 software lineup has been great so far, but explained that generation-defining games are still to come.
"I really believe it's year two when you tend to see those titles come through that start to define the whole generation," he told IGN. "The best is yet to come on PS4. We've seen a brilliant start with the mega-franchises, like the FIFAs, Call of Duties, and the Assassin's Creeds, but we've also seen some strong new IPs launch--the likes of Destiny and Watch Dogs. But I think that the ones that are truly to define the generation are probably still to come, to be honest."
Gara went on to say that history bears this out. He said the Original PlayStation didn't get its first "truly memorable" game until 1996, which was two years after the console's initial debut in Japan.
"It shows that it does take some time for a platform to mature and for developers to make the best of it," he said. "In fact, you look at PS3, two of the highest-rated games of the entire cycle came in the last year with The Last of Us and GTA V. So it's a great sign of how things can progress over several years."
