Sony Worldwide Studios Boss on the PS3’s Lack of “Blockbusters” this Year

If you’re a PS3 fan, this year might be the “weakest” holiday the PS3 has seen in terms of blockbusters coming out.

Sony has Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time and Superbot’s PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale coming out…and not much else.

Apparently, this notion hasn’t escaped Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida who admits that the publisher is targeting “family-friendly” titles this year.

We’d love to have multi-million sellers for the holiday. But each title needs time to develop, especially new IP like The Last of Us. God of War has always come out in March, so that’s a natural time to aim at.

Our strategy for Christmas is to go big on family-friendly titles. This is a neglected genre for the PlayStation 3, but as it matures, I think it’s really important to have these games on the platform. I think we have a great lineup this holiday to complement third parties’ big core games.

Hopefully, this only applies to this year, no? I guess people who want a more “mature” experience for the PS3 this year might just have to look at its third-party offerings.
