Sony has stated that they will reveal a “compelling” line-up of titles for the PlayStation 5 very soon. Company president and CEO Kenichiro Yoshida announced the plan during Sony’s corporate strategy meeting on Tuesday. Yoshida stated increased speed, enhanced sensory perceptions generated by PS5’s DualSense controller, and sound delivered in 3D audio will all be combined to create a revolutionary and more immersive next-gen console experience.
With the pandemic going on as well, worries in regards to game development quickly arose, but Sony was quick to reply statingGames for the PS5 that deliver this new game experience are being made by both first and third-party developers and we plan to introduce a compelling line-up of titles soon
After Sony published its full-year financial results on May 13, it was also revealed that the PS5 is still on track to launch during the 2020 holiday season. However, a question arose for Sony, which was to rate its next-gen marketing campaign to date.major problems have not arisen in the game software development pipeline for Sony’s own first-party studios or its partners’ studios.
A Merrill Lynch analyst at a Q&A session said:
Sony Also responded sayingSony’s next generation game console marketing compared to Microsoft’s software line-up introduction is a bit inferior—some people say it’s lagging—so towards the launch of PS5, do you think that you have a passing grade and if it is a passing grade, what is going well?
Sony recently unvielded their plans to showcase PS5 content in "Early June". Sony CEO Yoshida also stated that PlayStation Now had over 2.2 million paid subscribers as of April 2020.“Is it a passing grade or not?” Sony’s chief financial officer Hiroki Totoki responded. “Well, on that point, I think results will be everything, so after the launch it will become clear, and so we are going to make our upmost effort.”
Sony slashed PlayStation Now prices in October 2019 to be more competitive with rival streaming services. They also added more AAA titles each month, which are available for a limited time. After reducing membership prices, Sony said PlayStation Now had reached one million subscribers, and now Rainbow Six Siege and The Evil Within 2 joined the library in May.
