Sony admits it “has work to do” on PS4 AAA exclusives

Sony boss admits the company has “work to do” on its PS4 AAA exclusive line-up ahead of the major holiday season.

Earlier this year, PlayStation President Andrew House admitted that the first-party game line-up for PS4 this Christmas period was “a little sparse”.

Well, now it’s time for Sony Computer Entertainment boss Shuhei Yoshida to make a comment on the limited PS4 exclusives arriving in time for Santa.

Yoshida has said Sony has “work to do” to bring more PS4 exclusives of a triple AAA nature.

“From a delivering games standpoint, we have work to do. People constantly ask us for the big exclusive triple-A games,” explained Yoshida in a recent Eurogamer interview.

As for the PS4’s sales successes, Yoshida states that the console has exceeded the company’s expectations.

“We had a specific target – 5 million units – against what we did, 7 million I think, and it just kept going. We had more modest projections before launch.”

“It’s still the fastest-selling PlayStation platform, ever,” he added.

That’s not to say Yoshida isn’t aware the console is struggling on the games’ side in comparison to the Xbox One though.

“When a platform’s doing well, studio side kind of struggles.”
