“We need to have something to show at gamescom, don’t we?” SCE Europe CEO Jim Ryan replied when asked about the number of first-party games shown at E3 2013.

“There’s a lot coming,” Ryan told GameReactor, as transcribed by Gematsu.

“I’m sure you heard from [SCE Worldwide Studios boss] Shu [Yoshida] that he has – just his studios – he has 30 games in development. 20 of them are going to ship within the first year of the console’s life, and of those, 12 are new IP.

“So there’s a lot going on, it’s just that we need to keep stuff back. We’ve got gamescom for us Europeans – we need to have something to show at gamescom, don’t we?”

Ryan said that Sony “very consciously” showed a lot of forst-party software at the PlayStation 4 reveal in February, including Killzone: Shadow Fall and Knack.

“What we did at E3 here was really show some updates to those games, and, as you mentioned, introduce The Order: 1886,” he said of the comparatively more quiet E3 2013 presentation.

Gamescom takes place in Cologne from August 21 through 25. We’ll be there, unless the world ends. The PlayStation 4 is expected before the end of the year.
