Jim Ryan recently had an interview with Nikkei where he talked about the PS5’s performance and how the company will handle the platform in Japan.
Im glad to hear it
Just words till we see some proof. Indie shovelware doesn't count.
According to the dictionary, it does. Exclusive is exclusive. lol.
Returnal, ratchet and that’s just in the next Month or so 😑
Tell the competition that.
Which is it?!? Did Sony abandon Indies or is it just Indie shovelware? I can't keep up with the changing arguments.
this isn't MS. Sony has proven themselves for 4 gens now spanning almost 27 years in gaming.
@BenRC01 Ummm see Xbox GamePass for the "Indie Shovelware".
I guess 25 years of history isn't enough for you. Tough crowd.
That can't be said about Sony based on their track record...xbox on the other hand...
Sony launched with Demon Souls, Miles Morales and Astro's playroom. They're about to release Returnal and Ratchet and Clank. On top of that, they've secured FF16, FF7 Intergrade and Kena as console/timed exclusives. And this is just the PS5 btw. Sony has been releasing great games for 25 years now. How much more proof do you need? lol.
All I need to hear.. Sony delivers!! And more than ever?? Can't wait to see what they have in Stock..
PlayStation have had more exclusives for VR alone in just the past year than some consoles get in an entire generation. Let that sink in.
@BenRC BRO, you say that like as if Sony has been lacking in exclusives in past generations?! 🤣😂 Personally for me, I can totally see a lot more exclusives coming to ps5.
Wrong article. This comment deserves to be in an xbox article. They're the ones who consistently promise then don't deliver.
@BenRC01 I think you are confusing PlayStation with xbox.
25 years in the market and how they have delivered every generation is proof enoight for me. This is not Xbox , who relies on empty promises and keeping their fans waiting and waiting.
@Ben, 23 studios and still no games.
where is that "proof" on xbox buddy boy?
Same. Once this gen truly gets off the ground I truly think this will be one of the best gens exclusive wise for Sony imo.
Now this is what I like to hear! Jim has been saying some good things lately.
Didn't Don Mattrick say the same thing with a big smile on his face that looked like this 🤡
I'm excited to hear this
I highly doubt that's possible to be honest. PS1 and PS2 had a crazy amount of 3rd party exclusives. The hardware differences between different platforms were much more significant during those generations and creating ports wasn't nearly as straight forward as it is today. Not to mention that the incentive to port games wasn't that big to begin with, because Playstation was so dominant during that time. Only way I could see them getting anywhere near those numbers is by investing in a ton of indies.
Thats exactly my thought. No way they can dish that much out especially from third party. If they can, Holy sh*t they'll have 100s of owned IPs from third party
I_am_Batman Death loop Tokyo ghostwire FF16 Kena Just in the first year 3rd party exclusives. Also one thing to keep in mind back than sony didn't own all these studios so now they don't have to depend on 3rd party exclusives as much. On topic: Not surprised ryan understands what it takes to dominate so even though he maybe a numbers guy he Knows how to get those numbers high. I fully expect sony to invest heavily in acquisitions and buying up timed exclusives
Those are timed exclusives though
The magic of gaming has gone over the last two generations and that is partly because the consoles from Sony and Microsoft have been near identical in both hardware and software. Back in the N64//PS1/Saturn days, there were genuinely exclusives releasing every week on all of the consoles. And the same can be said for Dreamcast/Gamecube/PS2/Xbox era. If you go further back, it's even more diverse but I'm trying to stick to consoles here. So many unique exclusives for each platform which gave them a true identity. Since then though, the entire industry has stagnated massively. It's good that PS5 has a few games coming out (and they look great too) but it's funny how easily pleased people have become. We were truly spoilt back then and sadly with each passing generation the excitement and magic fades further. Maybe a crash will bring about a new dawn and rebalance development costs and time.
3/4 on your list are absolutely coming to series x, with 2 coming to gamepass. A timed exclusive isnt an exclusive and as a multiconsole owner, im fiine with waiting on deathloop and ghostwire to be on gamepass in a year. FF16 ill likely buy on ps5. Same goes with Kena which looks pretty cool. And sony may buy up a lot of timed exclusives, but ms will buy up studios and publishers. Neither is really good for us gamers. I honestly prefer to play on my series x, but at the end of the day it doesnt truly matter where games are.
someone72 I agree I never said they were permanently exclusives but they are exclusive for most likely a year where Sony has a business can take advantage and sell their console. I personally am against paying for time to exclusives I believe that same money should be spent on developing sequels or new IP's because paying for a timed exclusive gives you benefit for very short period of time while owning the IP and making further games can make that brand much stronger But sadly timed exclusives are a thing now and they are here to stay because the competition is so stiff weather right or wrong DOMination- While I agree with you and your point but I think if we remove the nostalgia and look at it now the quality of games is much higher now than back in that time period. But then again the greed now is much stronger than back then from these publishers
I don't know why people disagree. It's true. A ton of first and third party titles poured into those consoles. Cheaper, faster, simpler games to make. PS5 has definitely made it easier for devs, but the world building is so much more complex now, and the console capability creates a massive expectation. For context, game development output on PS2 was so much higher that we got 3.5 Devil May Cry games and 2 MGS titles in a standard length generation.
AXISPAW85, Well, I'm very partial to PlayStation. Love the games and consistency they've delivered since PSOne. I know where my biases are, so if the issue is that people are not on their knees for Sony, that's a problem. I don't love PlayStation because they're PlayStation. I love PlayStation because they're reliable and I never regret owning one. That said, there are some objective truths and people ought not ignore them. this claim by Ryan, knowing PS5 is said to have a traditional lifespan, I mean, c'mon. Realistically, how are you going to have a console with more exclusives than ever? Does he actually know how many were on PS1/PS2? There's no way we're talking about an abundance of AAA titles. I wouldn't be upset about the return of 'AA' titles at all, but people need to temper their expectations, especially when Ryan hasn't exactly been straightforward with us.
While the rest of the ecosystem is making multiplats for everyone, Sony can just do their thing and pump out exclusives. It aint the 90s anymore.
I'm pretty sure he was referring to the PS4. Jim Ryan doesn't really want to associate too much with any playstation before the PS4 lol.
Finally..a statement i can get behind!
He means more AAA western studio exclusive. Pretty sad he sidelined most japanese studio.
"PlayStation 5 has a lot of software by Japanese developers from early on. And going forward, I would like to strengthen our ties with Japanese developers and release content for PlayStation 5 suited to the Japanese market."
He sidelined PS Japanese studio, for deals with Square, Capcom, Konami, etc... You have FF16, Forspoken, Ghostwire: Tokyo, and potentially more to come like Silent Hill, whatever else they're working on with Konami, Capcom, Atlus, etc..., because they no longer are funding multi-million dollar projects through PS Japan who was putting out niche content (that may have been solid / experimental), but wasn't bringing in sales. So I don't see where sidelining Japanses studios. They just going with more mainstream Japanses games adn franchises.
Way to drink that mainstream narrative kool-aid! Jim Ryan bad man, cry cry lol
So we are going to pretend western AAA aren't any good.
Are you Kenneth Sim? or did you steal this comment from Facebook? There is a guy on the Gamespot page with the same comment.
Sounds great to me. Hopefully a variety of games and genres. Bring on the games.
Sorting the C-bomb out should be priority
You haven't heard of the c-bomb that would render the ps3, ps4, ps5 useless when CMOS battery dies should or when Sony cuts PSN access? Can't even play physical games and you can forget about your digital ones. The reason why they recently did a 180 in reversing the decision in stopping access for PS3 and vita?
Why would they make sorting a problem that will only happen in 20 years a priority?
We get that this "cbomb" propaganda is a concern but a lot of these problems being brought up is future speculation. I have a PS3 from 2008 that still works with the original CMOS. everybody is bashing sony for something that's being speculated as a potential huge issue in the future. Either way it's still possible to replace it on all 3 systems. And crying about a potential repair cost 10+ years down the line is completely silly. Keep drinking that thirsty journalist kool-aid.
It's not propaganda when it is true. It is not speculation when it is fact. You have a ps3. Does that make your comment have more clout? I have a PS1 ps2 PS3 and ps4.The fact is that no PSN access means no playing of any digital game brought on PS3. Ps4 is worse as the games periodically check PSN for the time/date. Nobody mentioned any repair cost. So where you diverting my point to? Nobody debated whether it was possible or not in replacing the CMOS.
Just what is the percentage of this C-bomb actually an issue and affecting right now? And what is the time that it's gonna "blow up"? 20 years ? You have a high chance of blowing up your console from lightning than a C-bomb. So Calm down. Im pretty sure they're looking into this issue.
Percentage? When it blows up? Do you even know what it is? It's not a literal bomb. It's named that because when it does happen, and it will happen. It will render the PS4 useless as it can't even play physical games. It's a battery that keeps the time. "Well just replace the battery then". Just look it up on YouTube. There's plenty people explaining it in detail with evidence. I just like to own what I buy-Not paying for it but have somebody else decide whether I still own it or not.
@vtkc "Percentage? When it blows up? Do you even know what it is? It's not a literal bomb. It's named that because when it does happen, and it will happen. It will render the PS4 useless as it can't even play physical games. It's a battery that keeps the time." Jesus! You don't read much do you. Of course it's not a literal bomb..for crying out loud, thats why i put it "blowup" in apostrophes especially since they named it "C-bomb". And you still haven't answered this yet. Has it happened yet? Sure you dont wanna wait for it to happen but When it does how long before it happens? 20 years give or take? Im not saying Sony should ignore it and maybe patch it(which they're looking into it anyway). But jeeze the way you're overreacting over this...
Remind me to be slightly worried in about 15-20 years.
Funny you should mention that. https://www.playstationlife...
That is awesome. Thanks for showing this.
You are right, I totally should worry that my PS5 won't play games in 2035 instead of exclusive games that will be released soon, I mean they only have like 15 years to release a firmware patch, I don't think I can fall asleep tonight, I am so stressed. /S
Yeah boi because the jury is out on him. Don't follow inept practices and trends. Continue to do what clearly works and add, don't take away
He's reacting to the community. That's a real good thing.
Big thumbs up Jim!, and I will be there to support those games. :)
I believe you.
doing a banger of a job so far.
he forgot to mention "together with PC and torrent"
Get on your knees next time you port beg.
Do you mean like when people were port begging for Zenimax games & Starfield to still come to other platforms...?
port beg? https://imgur.com/BjNbAAG begging works, did you able to beg your ps5 or rtx?
I get the feeling that Ps5 is going to be much better than Ps4. The first year alone is proving that.
It's too early to say for sure but their first year is definitely better cause ps4 was "sparse" for the first 2 years. (Sony words not mine)
I agree Ps4 had a slower start but that was probably more to do with Sony studios working on new engines and new IPs.
But I thought Sony was just focused on movies? /s
Cap, ps1 and ps2 had a ton of third party exclusives that'll never be duplicated. Unless Xbox disappear or become unattractive to 3rd party Devs.
