In a Gamesindustry.biz interview, Ryan stated, “The big first-party IPs are all there, the great partner titles, and we’ll say if you’re new to PlayStation, or if you don’t have a PS4 but are getting a PS5 and subscribing to PS Plus, you basically get PS4 for the price of the subscription. “
Ryan also emphasized that the company does not emulate certain parts of the strategy of Xbox Game Pass. In particular, Ryan disagrees with the tactic of Microsoft to launch new games as soon as they go out to the subscription service. “We are not going down the path of putting new titles on a subscription model. These games cost many millions of dollars, over $ 100 million, to develop. We just don’t see that as sustainable,” he said.
