Recently in an interview with Naver, Jim Ryan, the CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, was asked about the price of games rising. They asked for his views on the situation, he responded with “It is difficult to talk about the overall game market or other game consoles, but I think the value is obvious in the case of the PS5. We’ll excite fans around the world with the best exclusive games on the market today and deliver a truly next-generation device experience that will captivate them.”
PlayStation 5 will have exclusives like Demon Souls Remake, Spider-Man Miles Morales, Ratchet and Clank, God of War Ragnarok, and Horizon Forbidden West. Jim Ryan seems pretty confident about these games.
Jim Ryan also stated that he expects PlayStation 5 to sell over 7 Million units by March 2021. He stated, “We think the PS5 will sell more in its first fiscal year than it sold in the first fiscal year at the time of PS4 launch,” PS4 sold around 6-7 million units in that time of the launch period, and he”s saying that he expects the PS5 to sell more because of the high demand.
It seems like Jim Ryan is pretty confident with the sales of the PlayStation 5. He also admitted that the Pre-Order situation was a mess; hopefully, the next round of pre-orders is better and has more units, so it doesn’t get sold out in 10 minutes like the last time.
Jim Ryan also commented on the design of PlayStation 5. He stated, “ Various technologies were used in PlayStation?5, and a lot of effort was put into making future-oriented designs. When we first unveiled the PS5 in June, we were curious about your reaction, but internally, there was a strong belief that a great design that fits in the 2020s and beyond.”
