Games! Sure everyone is expecting some exciting news regarding the Playstation 4 but what good is a console reveal without demonstrating what it’s capable of. The developers of Motorstorm, Killzone, Final Fantasy Versus, Mafia and Thief are just some of the big names that have let slip some vital information that gives credence to possible expansions of each franchise on the next generation franchise.

One rumor that has generated quite a lot of negative attention includes the improved Playstation Move expected to launch with the Playstation 4. Some sources have stated that the Move will be mandatory with all titles, somehow involving itself in every aspect of game play. Although the Move performed moderately well in the market, it didn’t have the same impact as the technology deployed by the Wii; prompting many gamers to refuse a Playstation Move purchase. However, if this rumor proves true there will no longer be that option.

Other rumors include sync support with a variety of mobile devices that will allow players to use a mobile phone to play the same game as the person using the new Playstation 4 console. Some sources are expecting this to be subscription based while others are following prior trends set by Sony with the PS Vita.
