Sony‘s Jim Ryan has revealed the format holder is looking to ensure the PS5 generation will boast ‘more exclusive software than ever before.’
Speaking during a Nikkei interview, the executive revealed the Sony has been ‘steadily investing in high-quality games for PlayStation,’ and didn’t rule out the possibility of investing in future acquisitions.
We have been quietly, but steadily investing in high-quality games for PlayStation. 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.
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.
The PS5 was released in November 2020 in the UK and US, and has sold 4.5 million units as of the end of last year. Sony is also working on a next-generation PSVR headset, and recently unveiled the new controller that will accompany the device.
