PlayStation make PS5 promise to loyal fans as Sony hints at next-gen games plan
PlayStation Worldwide Studios boss Hermen Hulst knows why people choose PlayStation .
He's acutely aware that players choose the Sony platform, largely, based on the strength of the single-player games the company publishes.
From Horizon Zero Dawn to God of War, The Last of Us to Uncharted, the PlayStation brand as a very high bar when it comes to single-player experiences.
Even the less well-known games – Concrete Genie, Nioh and the PSVR titles – really hold their own in the global market, and keep platform rivals very much on their toes.
And when it comes to PlayStation 5, Hulst knows that the company has to keep delivering games that appeal to its market.
Over on thePlayStation Blog, Hulst was quizzed about Worldwide Studios (the umbrella term for all Sony's internal studios) and where he sees the developers going in the future.
"We’re very committed to dedicated hardware, as we were before. We’re gonna continue to do that. And we’re very committed to quality exclusives. And to strong narrative-driven, single-player games," Hulst revealed.
"At the same time, we’re going to be very open to experimentation, to new ideas. Just trying things out to see what works. I think that’s also very much part of the DNA of Worldwide Studios."
It's a good statement from the PlayStation boss – confirming that Sony is acutely aware of what gamers want, and acknowledging why Sony games sell so damn well, whilst also accepting that too much of the same product gets boring.
Any console launch lives and dies on its games, though, and Sony will need to prove its commitment to familiarity and experimentation with its PlayStation 5 launch line-up if it wants to win fans over at the earliest possibility.
