There’s No Need To Purchase Third-Party Exclusives, Says Sony

By   /   Aug 14, 2014

Sony has relayed that it doesn’t feel the need to purchase third-party exclusive titles to bolster its already strong first-party lineup.

Jim Ryan, head of PlayStation Europe, also added that Sony has a great third-party partnership and with the line of games heading to the PlayStation 4, the company has no need to purchase third-party exclusive titles.

“Well, you know, we’ve got a very large and very powerful network of studios on our own, all of whom are working on games that will be fully exclusive to PlayStation, and we feel that this on top of partnering with third parties where it makes sense,” he said.

“So do we feel the need to go out and buy outright exclusivity? Probably not. You saw last night [at Sony’s press conference] that before the media briefing we showed updated videos of games that we had revealed at E3. That’s because we wanted to keep the show itself full of new, fresh things. We think that gave us a good, strong, convincing portfolio of exclusive stuff and we’re happy with that.”

Ryan’s statement comes after the initial shocker that Microsoft pulled off at Gamescom 2014 by announcing Rise of the Tomb Raider as an exclusive title for the Xbox One. It was later revealed that the exclusivity is only timed and will later arrive on other platforms.

Currently there hasn’t been word as to how long the exclusivity will last and if the game will be coming to PC as well.
