On this week’s episode of IGN’s PlayStation show, Podcast Beyond!, host Jonathon Dornbush is joined by Brian Altano to dive into some recent PlayStation news and answer your questions. The duo jumps into the recent news that Jade Raymond is starting her own studio that is working in partnership with PlayStation, and how that approach mirrors recent PlayStation third-party exclusive plans. Especially in light of the Bethesda acquisition with Xbox, the show breaks down what we think of Sony’s recent strategies on PlayStation exclusives, and where we expect the company to go.
Additionally, we answer some viewer and listener questions, including plenty of discussion about whether Sony needs to create a Game Pass competitor, whether PlayStation Now could be that competitive service, and how Sony could be leveraging its games streaming service in a better way. Additionally, we talk about PlayStation exclusives you might have overlooked, Brian’s continued experience with Yakuza and Jonathon’s journey with Sekiro, plus much more.
