  • The CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment also talked about the plans for PC ports, saying it plans to release titles entirely exclusive to the PlayStation 5.
  • Regardless, many of Sony’s AAA titles will release on PC after two or three years. Jim Ryan says the fans do not mind if he adopts this method to cater to the PC fan base.
  • The notable figure also emphasized the Japanese market and its importance for the brand. Sony wants to release games in the region even if they are less successful.

The CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, Jim Ryan, has been a major driving force for the PlayStation brand this gen, making effective choices to help it control the competition in many sectors. The company’s upcoming Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is expected to etch a deepening impact on the gaming industry; Jim Ryan also reassured the fans in a new interview with Famitsu while discussing its plans concerning the support for the PC ports.

During the interview, Jim Ryan oozed a slew of enthusiasm while discussing Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 for the PlayStation 5. As per the CEO, the fans can expect to be amazed because of how the developers have approached the new sequel, saying that he is “confident Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will be a very exciting launch.” He claims that the original Spider-Man performed greatly on the PlayStation 4, and millions of fans enjoyed it.

The sequel, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, is developed exclusively for the PS5, so the developers won’t have to compromise at all. They are focused on making the most of the PS5’s features and creating the best they can be. As a result, we’ve received feedback from game fans that they can enjoy really beautiful visuals and amazing experiences,” Says Jim Ryan [machine-translated].

Additionally, Jim Ryan is anticipating the releases of the Rise of the Ronin and Death Stranding 2, stating that the entries will be the highlight for the PS5 in the future. The interview has further unveiled Sony’s approach to PC ports; the CEO reassures that PlayStation 5 exclusives will still release, which will remain the hallmark of the brand.

We also fully understand the importance of exclusive PS5 titles. As I mentioned earlier, PlayStation Studios’ main task is to make people enjoy the gaming experience using the latest PS. We’re trying to increase the number of PS5-specific titles and stagger the timing of the PC release,” stated the CEO of SIE.

The words of the CEO also suggest that Sony does not intend to slow down in bringing its titles to PC. To clarify, we can expect many of its AAA entries, like the upcoming Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, to come to the PC catalog, but after a few years elapse. Jim Ryan says fans do not seem to mind if Sony releases AAA entries on PC after a specific time. This method still gives leverage in owning the PS5 while caring for the PC users.

I often get the opinions of game fans, and when I ask them about the time lag, many of them take it favorably about selling the PC version two or three years later than the release of the PS version.”

Jim stated the importance of the Japanese market and how recent titles, like Hogwarts Legacy, have become unexpectedly successful. It is currently focusing on standing out in many regions, and Japan is one of them. Jim Ryan states it plans to release titles in Japan even if they are less successful there. Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is expected to perform greatly in Japan and globally, as Insomiac is working to make Its “best game ever.”
