Forums - Sony Discussion - 6/14 of SIE's WWS only produced 4 games this generation. Should they improve?

Lol. Except they do have both. Like I just stated, if you want a company that needs to address both their quality and quantity, look no further than Xbox.

He means relative to the previous gens.  It's undeniable that Sony is making fewer games.  It takes longer to make a game with each generation.  

The studios that made games every 2 years, are now doing it every 3.  

Santa Monica has only released one game this gen that was internally developed.  Yet they made 2 games for PS3, and 3 games for PS2. 

It just takes longer to make games, and it'd be nice if there was an easy way to address that.  

  

Agree, the 2 bolded statements are the 2 points i was making and all ive been trying to say on this thread.



Around the Network

I don’t see the problem Sony’s put out more and higher quality titles than any other publisher this gen, as was the case last gen.
I think they know how to manage the studios working for them.

In my original comment i was making 2 points that are actually unrelated and you mixed both of them, i will now explain both of my points and at the very end (just to make sure there is no confusion) i will explain how you are confused.

POINT 1

in my first sentence i made my first point when i simply stated that Sony delivered less games THIS GEN,

POINT 2

After that i made my second point which has to do with NEXT GEN (PS5)

Well, you begin the 2nd point with

I do hope next gen is better in this regard...

In regards to It is true that this gen we have gotten less games from Sony studios compared to last.

You relate both of your points to one another. You wondering how next gen is going to be is what prompted my thoughts on the game differences for different gens. 

It is what it is I suppose.

I do hope next gen is better in this regard however didnt sony say something along the lines of focusing on quality instead of quantity?

I see how you got confused, and yeah the word related was not appropriate since they are related in the sense that both have to do with Sonys first party output.

What i was trying to say by "Unrelated" is that my speculation in point 2 is not referring to my observation in point 1.

When im speculating in point 2 i am talking about next gen and i was not referring to my obvservation of sonys first party output this gen (point 1).

But i will stop there since im sure (even before this comment) you already understood that, so there is no need to overly explain it all again or to drag on this discussion even further.
