PlayStation Bigwigs Won’t Shut Up About PCs, Smartphones



It’s rare that we get an interview from any of PlayStation’s top brass, so we’re always keen to dig into the comments whenever the likes of Group President Jim Ryan open their mouths. Unfortunately, it feels like the PS5 has become a forgotten format of late, because all the executives want to talk about are PCs and smartphones. You’d be forgiven for overlooking the fact that the firm has a new console to support!

PS Studios boss Herman Hulst delivered a familiar line in his conversation with Gaming Newsletter. Axios, primarily focusing on pushing the platform holder out of its ecosystem. There isn’t much interesting information in the interview: the price of Sony’s tentpole titles is rocketing, and adding the PC as a platform is helping it make a return on its investments. Meanwhile, its drive in mobile is still up-to-date, but it desperately wants a piece of the pie.

So what about the PS5? Well, as we know, it has 12 live service titles in development, as it strengthens its position in the increasingly lucrative multiplayer space. According to Hulst, not all of these projects will be new intellectual property, with projects like Horizon’s rumored multiplayer spin-off as well as those related to existing brands. Obviously, we also know that The Last of Us is also getting a major online iteration.

Hulst points out that none of this is about to end the company’s commitment to single player titles, but he failed to reveal what we can expect as the PS5 enters its third year on the market. So in short, another rare interview with a PlayStation executive and little in the way of a roadmap for its latest console – we’d like to pretend we’re surprised, but it’s par for the course for Sony’s top brass in 2022. . , isn’t it?
