Boycott on PS5 games on day one, but there’s a reason
It’s already been three months since the launch of the new PlayStation Plus formats and every month, Sony continues to improve its various catalogs to capture the attention of gamers who are increasingly reluctant to give in to the sirens of Extra and Premium editions.. Again this month, the second mode, the Extra, offers a very attractive gallery of titles (also available via the Premium mode) because it includes, among other things, ring of deathAnd the Assassin’s Creed Origins or Watch dogs 2. On the premium subscription side, we’re not relaxing our efforts either. Since the license is dear to the hearts of PlayStation players, it is honored While A much needed option Make his appearance! In short, on the Japanese company’s side, we seem satisfied and continue to praise the merits of these new formulas and defend some biases as Shuhei Yoshida, President of PlayStation Indies did recently.
during the interview, The former head of Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios has confirmed the choice not to introduce new PS5 games once they are released into catalogs.. In support of this decision, he specifically cited an argument The premium version of the title at launch ‘, a necessary choice to continue feeding the virtuous circle the company has created around the marketing of games from PlayStation Studios. However, the idea is that this service can greatly benefit developers and gamers: Shuhei Yoshida himself explained on this point.
PlayStation Plus, an asset for the lifecycle of PS5 games
One of the strengths of the PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium plans, according to Shuhei Yoshida, is It allows developers and publishers” Managing their game lifecycle “About the same performance as films in cinemas. The former head of Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios, in fact, compares the life process of the games to that of the movies, in the sense that availability within the subscription service arrives after a certain time. This makes it possible, in a way, to generate new income in the long run and to expand the audience.
In the same way, we believe in releasing a premium title at launch and six months, three months, or three years later, when game sales drop, inclusion in PS Plus Extra/Premium services can help introduce these games to a new, broader audience. Some people may have missed these games when they were released and this is a great opportunity to play them and generate word of mouth or if there is additional content or a sequel we can help spark interest in the franchise by a wider audience. – PlayStation Indies Branch Manager Shuhei Yoshida
On the other hand, if the lack of great titles once released on PlayStation Plus is disappointing, The choice of Sony can also make people happy when discovering the inclusion of titles that may have gone under the radar of some players. Usually, those who are lucky to get PS5 We can rejoice, thanks to these two formulas, to discover, admittedly later, classics such as demon soulsAnd the Final Fantasy VII Intergrade RemakeAnd the Spider-Man Miles Morales or Ghost of Tsushima.
