first_imgTwo weeks from today on February 20 Sony is holding a PlayStation meeting. Over the years these meetings have always been used to show off new hardware including the PS2, PS3, and PS Vita %displayPrice% at %seller% . So come February 20 we expect Sony to roll out the PlayStation 4, at least, some form of it.The chances of seeing actual hardware at the meeting have increased on news that there may be a couple of next gen games also on show. The first is a brand new game from Guerilla Games. We don’t know what that game is, but would anyone bet against it being a new FPS? Showing off Killzone 4 running on the PS4 certainly wouldn’t do Sony any harm.The other game comes from Evolution Studios, best known for creating the MotorStorm series of racing games, and before that several WRC games. Apparently, the studio has hired a number of developers from Bizarre Creations (Project Gotham Racing, Blur), which publisher Activision shut down in early 2011, and Studio Liverpool (F1, Wipeout). With the new talent on board, Evolution has set about creating a brand new racing game for Sony, which it hopes will develop into a series just like Gran Turismo or Forza.If true, having both a racing game and FPS to demonstrate running on the PlayStation 4 hardware bodes very well for Sony and gamers alike. If Sony can launch the PS4 later this year with a couple of AAA titles like this, it will certainly help with sales of the new console, especially if Microsoft launches the next Xbox at a similar time and has a new Halo game ready for it.last_img read more
