Forums - Sony Discussion - So... RIP "Sony Interactive Entertainment Presents" I guess?

Today, Sony unveiled something rather surprising, PlayStation Studios. The new umbrella label for first party games on the PS5. I like that Sony Interactive has enough confidence in just using PlayStation as the nickname for whole company, showing they know how strong of a brand it is. But I can't say I'm a fan of the intro they showed. It just feels too overproduced and soulless for PlayStation to me.

"Sony Computer Entertainment Presents" or "Sony Interactive Entertainment Presents" may have been a mouthful, but I feel like the simplicity of the plain-white text on a black background gave Sony's first party games a bit of character. It just felt more elegant than this Marvel style intro they're seemingly going with.

That said, I think if the games compromised by just having a simple "PlayStation Studios Presents" like the SCE or SIE intros of old when you boot them up. I wouldn't mind. Xbox Game Studios has a long-ass, similarly Marvel style intro Microsoft posted on YouTube, but if you played Gears 5, you know that shit doesn't actually play when you boot up the game, so hopefully, it's the same here.

I like it. It's simplistic and shows brand power. Either way, it's not that big of a deal.

The naming doesn't really bother me. I just hope this isn't what we see when we boot up a first party game. "PlayStation Studios Presents" in plain text on a black background would be much better IMO.



Well seeing as how they went the marvel route and marvel likes to do those intros at the start of every movie. It wouldn't surprise me if they put that in for every game.

That's exactly what you're going to see. That's the whole point.

Not only they copied the “studios” aspect but even the animation has been done by Xbox. I mean it’s no big deal but cmon have your own identity.

Xbox: Best hardware, Game Pass best value, best BC, more 1st party genres and multiplayer titles.

Yeah, as soon as I woke up and saw this my first thought was "ummm, didn't Xbox already do that a few years ago?". Microsoft changed from Microsoft Studios to Xbox Game Studios, and Sony is changing from Sony Worldwide Studios to Playstation Studios. Even the animation for it is the same as Microsoft's:

Not that Microsoft's animation was particularly original either, MS copied Marvel, then Sony copied MS, lol.



And they said it will be used for Playstation games that are also on other platforms. That means more PC ports.

While I am expecting more PC ports than just Horizon, that could mainly be referring to MLB The Show. Starting with MLB The Show 21, the series is going multiplat, will be releasing on Xbox and Switch as well. Rumor is that MLB got sick of losing out on money due to Sony exclusivity, so they threatened to pull the license and sell it to EA or 2K if Sony didn't go multiplat. That's not confirmed of course, Sony may have decided to make the series multiplat of their own volition, but I doubt it.

Xbox Game Studios doesn't have their long ass intro play at the start of every game though.
