The PlayStation 5 will have exclusive games, as Sony has confirmed. “It is time to offer the PlayStation community something new, something different, which will really only be enjoyed on PS5,” as Jim Ryan who is President, and CEO, Sony Interactive Entertainment told in the interview. Microsoft has been relied heavily on backward compatibility of older games to form a case for the Xbox, as Sony continued its specialise in making new and exclusive games that run best on its consoles. The more things are going to change when it comes to graphics and performance on this year, the more they will stay the same when it comes to marketing and sales.
“We have always said that we believe generations. We believe that once you attend all the difficulty of making a next-gen console, it should include features and benefits that the previous generation doesn’t include. And that, in our view, people should make games which will make the foremost of these features,” as Ryan told.
Sony has given us a deep-dive into the technical aspects of the PlayStation 5, even we still don’t know what the console actually seems like , and we’ve also seen it in action the recent Unreal Engine 5 demo. Sony is prepping to show us some PS5 games and also hopefully some gameplay on 4th June. There is a problem. The world is different today from when Sony started imagining the PS5. Sony has no actual way to let potential gamers know and experience how exactly the PS5 will change the gaming experience. With big-league gaming expos canceled, people locked down in their homes, Sony will have to rely on word-of-mouth to sell its new console, at least in the first few months. This includes both the existing PS4 community, that is new customers.
“We have always felt that we had a responsibility to serve the community for several years after the launch of PlayStation 5 and also that it represented a huge business opportunity for us,” as Ryan said. The PS4 will continue dominate the gaming console market for the some more time. Sony seems to have told developers that all PS4 games submitted for the certification post 13th July must be forward compatible with the PS5. This should come handy for who buy these games now for the PS4 and decide to make a switch to the PS5 in the days to come.
