Sony Explains Its First, Best, Must Philosophy to PS4 Exclusives

Sony’s first-party output has been very strong since the PlayStation 3 days, but thanks to the success of the PlayStation 4, it’s starting to see the commercial rewards. And speaking as part of a Game Lab panel in Spain this week, exec Shawn Layden outlined the organisation’s “first, best, must” mantra, which is the philosophy it adopts when greenlighting exclusives. “First means creating a first of its kind game — a genre that doesn’t exist, a market that hasn’t been actualised yet,” he said. “Will your game do that?” A…
