It's been 5-6 years since the launch of the PS3. It's clear the PS3 has plenty of good games and a variety of games. However, some gamers were disappointed with some genres, like RPGs and racing games to name a few.
So my question is, what genres does the PS4 or next PlayStation console need to focus on that the PS3 lacked? Does the PS4 need more and better RPGs? First person shooters? Shooters in general? Racing? Fighting?

Future of PlayStation Game Genres
I agree, they could focus more on shooters. Killzone is solid, but Resistance didn't live up to the hype and pressure. Next gen, they need at least two exclusive shooters.
I think the genres are fine, and PS3 sure brought some nice and novelty game exclusives like MGS4, Heavy Rain and Journey to name a few.
To be fair, I think we get enough shooters nowadays. Not that FPS titles are a bad thing but they could always try and stand out from one another i.e. Valve's Half-Life series or Criterion's action-packed Black.
But I mainly want to see more JRPG titles from Sony. Final Fantasy Versus XIII is my most anticipated exclusive for that specific genre and Square Enix just recently went into full-production for said title last year.Thanks to Kwes for the signature!

i think they are okay, but they really need to improve Gran Turismo. and where was all that monthly DLC for it?
Let's be honest: You sleep with anything that walks on two legs. Sometimes, you're not even that discriminating
I wanna see a good old fashion TURN-BASED RPG without the hype of graphics(graphics never made a game good) action RPG's are boring are more attuned to casual beat em up type players. Most players tend to play games one time through and move on. Me I still play FF VII-IX as well as Xenogears and others. RPG's for next-gen are one time play through for me since fun factor an replay ability is out the door.Why wait later when you can do now!

I want a genre called punk or amateur where just anybody can make a game and then publish it. The wilder and the more experimental the better. It's a genre about doing new things or distorting accepted tropes. It'd be like the twitter account PeterMolydeux, or like Cactus Squid, or like Messhof.
Ideas that fail to entertain, but are fascinating nevertheless.
Sony needs to bring some JRPG to the west, since they are not selling well over japan, and yes we like it to the end. I don't think we need more shooters that we have now, and killzone and resistence series both completed their mission in a way. With strong build of ps3, sure some action / rpg games with uncharted graphs will be killer.(_)
Stop preordering games! Stop buying day1 games! Stop being idiots!

They have to focus on games that sell and unfortunately right now that's just shooters, shooters, and football games. I think it's more accurate that gamers need to focus on new things the next time around, there are plenty of good games that have been released the last five years that have been passed over for no good reason. Companies just aren't going to spend the time and money it takes to develop a good rpg when they can just slap random things together and add guns and you'll sell millions.
Sony should have done more to push rpg's in the beginning of the ps3, square making all their early rpg's 360 only pretty much killed the genre early on. Both of them, along with Level 5 are guilty of trying to do too much instead of just staying wtih the formula that worked they tried to think too big and do too much without making the base of a game fun. White kight chronicles is a good example and might have been considered an all time great game had they just made it fun to play.
With ff13 and 14 Square pretty much killed off the Final Fantasy name, but they have been doing positive things XIII-2 is fun even though it's not great and still not the type of game they should be making, FF IV after the latest patch is actually a really good game for the first time.
MsSony both need to put out better hardware this time and quit cutting corners, MS severely hurt the industry by having only standard DVD and Sony killed their dominance with the horrible amount of Ram in their system. And somehow Nintendo managed to hurt themselves in a lot of peoples minds, while completely dominating the hardware sales which is an impressive feat
