I tried this tonight on a Fire stick. Major lag fest

MS future right here . Same as Luna but they are trying to buy as many 3rd party publishers to call these multiplat games theirs.
How can you think they are more than garbage for gaming if you are a gamer is beyond me?
That would mean you are a fan of the company and not games or a healthy games industry.

Y'all got what y'all wanted lets see if anything change hopefully for the better. A Japanese head would be better then Jim I bet.

"Y'all got what y'all wanted"

Yup...and I'm pretty sure most of us are content

His plans for the future of Sony were awful so...no great loss

Good riddance

Eonjay9h ago

Why did people hate him so much?
It seemed personal. I didn't get it.

raWfodog9h ago(Edited 9h ago)

I think a lot of people didn't like the direction that PlayStation was going under Jim with his heavy emphasis of GaaS games being developed by the first-party studios. That's just my impression.

-Foxtrot9h ago


Just his comments and business like approach to the industry along with some stupid sounding remarks.

He wanted a GaaS future for PlayStation and set those plans in motion (god knows if they will stop now)

We don't get much communication aswell, apart from Wolverine what else is coming to PlayStation after Spiderman 2 that isn't third party and GaaS related? Nobody wants to have games announced 3-4 years before they are actually released but give us something.

Microsoft bought Zenimax and Activision, it's clear they probably won't stop so where's the reaction from Sony? They should be doubling down hard or building up a new studio to counter the games they are missing out on but they aren't instead it's "lets throw GaaS shit at the wall like a dozen times and see what sticks"

He just hasn't really got anything on Jack Tretton and Shawn Layden

Yeah you go Fox, show them how the 27 billion USD business is led. You know what is a loss for every single Playstation user and have all the insights to roadmaps and investments, I'm sure you sat in those meetings the respected and well-known leader you are, and would have made all the right calls. I'd like to thank you for speaking for all of us.

Meanwhile, in the world of reality, PS5 was launched amid global pandemic and is SIE's fastest selling console yet and the Sony Corp stock nearly doubled.

First and foremost, Jim Ryan is responsible for 12700 people, and their families, and of course shareholders, and finally the consumers who buy their products. In that order.

He and his management team has all the data in the world from the Playstation product family, including countless of consumer insight projects from multiple regions and age groups, and knows exactly where and how gamers want to play today. This is reflected on the revenue increase, unit sales in both hardware and software, and is a clear showing of his outstanding performance at a very difficult job in extraordinary circumstances.

Jack Trenton to this day might be the best CEO I ever seen, I remember to this day him coming out and saying sorry for the PlayStation outage. And, it felt real. Go back and watch it.

-Foxtrot8h ago


Oooo. Seemed to hit a nerve. Kind of strange, I think I've found a Ryan supporter...that's rare.

"You know what is a loss for every single Playstation user and have all the insights to roadmaps and investments"

But...I haven't even mentioned users and investments.

Countering points I haven't said is just going to make you look pretty stupid at the end of the day, it's like you wanted to argue but couldn't really find much in my comment to really counter so just saw what you wanted to see so you could argue back.

Godmars2908h ago

For me it was the "Drama Simulator" focus. Getting interactive movies called games.

Then there are all the Horizon and Last of Us remakes. Re-releases?

itsmebryan8h ago(Edited 8h ago)

@ Eonjay
I think after that whole ABK fiasco and now Sony is going to be investigated of his involvement. I knew he wasn't going to be around much longer.

Sharky2317h ago


I don’t think people hated him. He was just more business oriented than past Heads. That doesn’t relate well with gamers.

__SteakDeck__6h ago

@Godmars290 Didn’t “Interactive movies” start under Shawn Layden?

__SteakDeck__6h ago

@Sharky231 That’s because most gamers want a “friend”. How’s that working out for Xbox? Lol

Sunny_D6h ago

People who think Sony are just going to change plans because he’s retiring are in for a huge disappointment. He left the PlayStation doing better than they ever have. That’s what board members and shareholders care to see. They have a 6 month plan for him to help ease the transition before his retirement for that reason.

Do people really think Sony is going to stop the GAAS games they have been working on for a few years now? No. It was a necessary thing for Sony to be able to fund their 1st party development.

Zeref6h ago

Those 10 GaaS games are still coming though 😏

smashman984h ago

I'm hoping whoever takes over has a better marketing strategy. But i would be very surprised if sony did a 180 on their plans.

outsider16244h ago

@eonjay no hate towards the guy. But it's his directions that ps is heading and well...im not sure i like it. Pretty sure others feel the same way.

Rynxie3h ago

The censorship of games, the woke BS being shoved down our throats in the xmb, a little bit of anti consumer policies as well. Hopefully all that goes away once he's gone.

Northpoint1h ago

He raised PS+ to $79.99. Not cool.

Sonic188155m ago

Sony fans should be happy!

We want these type of charismatic PlayStation leaders with clear messaging and understanding of what make’s PlayStation strong

Shawn Layden
Andrew house
Jack Trenton

Nothing against Jim he is just a suit who looks at numbers only. So hopefully he enjoys his retirement

I think Sony didn’t like how MS were able to acquire so much talent while Jim was sitting in the sideline

Hopefully we start to get a much clearer picture of what PlayStation will look like moving forward and less focus on GAAS

Tapani8h ago(Edited 8h ago)

But what are these numbers? If the majority wants a certain thing, even if it is GaaS, and a minority, which I am possibly part of, wants great single-player AAA game experiences, should he select us over what the "numbers" (=majority) says?

If you were in that position, and you had 12700 people in your organization, shareholders, and finally the fans who say (=numbers) they want a certain thing, would you go against it because a certain minority likes single player experiences? I certainly would go where the money and majority wants me to go. Why? Because it has the highest possibility to bring joy to the largest amount of people.

Numbers are not just digits. They are opinions, how people behave, what most people really want. I'm not in the GaaS camp personally, I don't play any multiplayer games at all, except FFXIV for the story, and only once, and mostly alone.

Besides, who knows if Jim Ryan was internally fighting the GaaS as much as he could, but had to simply present the GaaS concept in public due to internal pressure from multiple "numbers" teams?

We just really don't know, and we are not the right people to judge his performance or his character or personality. Quite frankly, the numbers are the best indication of his performance and success, not us on these forums.

VenomUK8h ago(Edited 8h ago)

Venom is calling his replacement now: Hermen Hulst.

And you can quote me on that!

VenomUK7h ago

…then again, how would you feel if Shawn Layden came back for another act?!

Sunny_D6h ago

Jim isn’t just making all the decisions regarding acquisitions. There Would have been discussions on who they would acquire. Also if you have been following the Activision acquisition case, you would know that Sony weren’t just sitting by letting MS acquire them.

neomahi4h ago

Yup. Shu Yoshida and Scott Rohde are great but likely better off where they are. PlayStation needs another Jack Tretton. Innovative hardware and not off the shelf parts. PlayStation pushed on PC doesn't scream "THIS IS WHY YOU NEED PLAYSTATION". It instead says "If you wait long enough, you can play a sub-par port on PC." To this day, Mario still isn't on PC. When consoles are gone and Xbox and PlayStation and Nintendo are singing around a campfire together, sure we'll talk about PC., but Jim Ryan is doing Xbox's marketing for them when he should have a pre-show to PlayStation Showcase with third-party games and then the PlayStation Showcase is why you NEED PlayStation hardware. Right after the PlayStation Showcase, Aaron Greenberg, Jim Ryans equal at Xbox shot out on social media "We have all of those." COME ON! Jim Ryans message was here's what Xbox has or he patient long enough and you can play it on PC, NOT this is why you need PlayStation. Games as Service? PlayStation NEVER followed Xbox's lead, PlayStation was the lead

Lightning774h ago

I'm way more curious as to who will take his place. Who will take center stage at next year's summer gamefest. Maybe Herman Hulst will take his place? More him or anyone familiar than some unknown outsider who's intentions and motives are completely unknown to us. No telling what direction they'll take PS.

That's very worrisome.

It's Blackblades, he loves the GaaS games Sony are doing, he's all for them.
