To add to that extensive list, it was confirmed that three of Sony’s finest studios, Naughty Dog (Uncharted, The Last of Us), Media Molecule (Little Big Planet) and Santa Monica Studios (God of War) are all currently working on PS4 titles. Finally, for those who like their games from smaller developers,  a slew of new indie titles were discussed. Release dates for these games remain unknown.

If you’re still not excited, it was also announced that every PS4 purchased would come with a 14-day free trial for Playstation Plus as well as 90 days free upon signing up for a year’s membership.

Sony also has plans to reward early adopters of soon coming PS3 titles that will be launching across both generations. A newly introduced incentive allows gamers that buy PS3 titles that are also coming to PS4 to purchase a digital version of that game at a significantly reduced cost. So far this applies to Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Battlefield 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts, and Watch Dogs. It is unknown if this scheme will be worldwide or how long it will be available but we can guess it will be ending soon after launch.
