If it wasn't obvious to you before, it should be readily apparent now: Sony's game systems have never had particularly strong launches as far as exclusive software goes. Virtually all of the games listed above have been long forgotten. That said, both Killzone: Shadow Fall and Knack look somewhat promising, so perhaps this time around it won't be quite as rough for the PlayStation faithful.
