Sony’s Andrew House Admits PS4 First Party Games Are Sparse, Says Exclusives Are Hard To Get
House said Sony will continue to work hard to support 3rd party in light of weak 1st party offerings.
While first party Sony games have been rather sparse since the PS4 first launched, fans of the console can take solace in the fact that at least CEO Andrew House is fully aware that the company’s offerings have fallen short. The executive added that the company is having a hard time getting 3rd party developers to make titles that are entirely exclusive to the PS4.
Speaking at the Electronics Investor Relations Day 2015, House said that he does believe that getting good third party content is key and that Sony has a leg up because of the market share of the PS4 as well as the momentum, according to new information. The executive also said that instead of going for “complete” exclusives when it comes to third party games, the company is working with developers in order to take advantage of the things the PS4 is able to do when compared to the other consoles on the market.
House did say that Sony hasn’t completely given up on getting third parties to produce complete exclusives for the PS4 and pointed to Street Fighter V as one of those games that are console exclusives. Naughty Dog is one group that has been pretty happy putting together exclusives for the PS4 as well. Though clearly one development company doing this isn’t going to produce enough titles to stand apart.
Rounding things out, House also mentioned that 2015 is going to be a year of investment for the PS4. That could mean big things for the console moving forward.
