Sony exec feels their output has never been better.
Sony has come a long way as a first party publisher over the last decade or so. In that period, they have shored up their stable of first party studios, built up beloved IP like Uncharted and God of War, and released several critically acclaimed games. The end result is that they now have an enviable catalog of first party games, which can have the ability of selling their platforms all by itself, much like Nintendo.
It is also a lineup that Sony is rightfully proud of. Speaking to GameReactor, Michael Denny (Head of the European branch of Sony Worldwide Studios) said that the publisher’s lineup right now is the best and broadest that they have ever had.
“If you look at our current releases and our upcoming releases, I truly believe that we now have I think not only the best lineup ever but the broadest lineup ever of games,” he said. “We want to be inclusive, we want to offer games for all our players. Of course, the core triple-A titles will always be there but doing things like PlayLink is important to us as well in terms of, maybe having something for the friends and family.”
I think that’s a reasonable stance to have- as a publisher, I don’t think Sony has literally ever had a better output than they do right now. Between their console games, VR games, PlayLink titles, and the whole range of genres and game styles that Sony’s games cover, they truly have one of the most diverse portfolios in the industry.
