PlayStation Europe Boss: Sony doesn't need to buy exclusivity

PlayStation Europe's Boss, Jim Ryan, says that Sony doesn't need to buy game exclusivity, amidst the Rise of the Tomb Raider controversy.

Sony doesn’t need to go out and buy exclusivity for games, its PlayStation Europe boss has said.

Amidst the controversy of the Rise of the Tomb Raider being exclusive to Xbox, CVG asked Jim Ryan where Sony stood on securing triple-A exclusives.

“… Do we feel the need to go out and buy outright exclusivity?” he rhetorically asked. “Probably not.”

“… 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 in top of partnering with third parties where it makes sense.

“I think the partnership we have with Activision on Destiny is a good example of where it makes really good sense to them, it makes good sense for us and it benefits our consumers – when you complement those two things we think that gives us a pretty complete position in the market.”
