PlayStation boss Jim Ryan stated that the PS5 will receive more exclusive games than previous generations of consoles. The cloud future was also addressed.
In an interview with the Japanese outlet Nikkei, Jim Ryan, the PlayStation Boss, spoke about the company’s future strategy. It was about virtual reality and delivery bottlenecks, but above all about future content for the PS5 and the company’s cloud strategy.
With a view to the competition, Sony wants to ensure that the current console cycle offers even more exclusive titles than previous generations. Ryan also stressed that further mergers and acquisitions, such as the takeover of the Insomniac Games, cannot be ruled out in the future.
“We have been quietly, but steadily investing in high-quality games for PlayStation,” said Ryan. “And we will make sure the PlayStation 5 generation has more exclusive software than ever before. We have engaged in mergers and acquisitions several times in the past, such as with Insomniac Games. We will not rule out that option in the future.”
As mentioned at the beginning, the PlayStation boss also spoke about the company’s cloud gaming strategy, which is said to be unique to PlayStation.
“The conversation of exchanging ideas (with Microsoft) is ongoing. It’s some extremely interesting stuff, and I hope to announce our cloud strategy when the time is right. While we could use the cloud for our technical infrastructure, the cloud game experience we offer will be unique to PlayStation,” he continued.
PlayStation 5 was launched in November last year. But until today Sony has not been able to meet the enormous demand. There are even fears that the bottlenecks will continue throughout the year.
