If PlayStation exclusives were available by subscription on the day of release, they would be worse. So said the vice president of Sony

As you know, the updated PlayStation Plus subscription service will offer games from Sony’s internal studios as part of the already average Extra tariff. The company has not yet revealed details, but these will obviously not be the latest exclusives. Why can’t a company, like Microsoft, add its exclusives to a subscription on launch day? Because in this case, the quality of these games will deteriorate.

If PlayStation exclusives were available by subscription on the day of release, they would be worse.  So said the vice president of Sony

That’s what Sony executive vice president Hiroki Totoki said. He explained that adding Sony exclusives, which are very expensive in development, to a subscription on the day of release is not economically viable. Such a model would force the company to reduce the cost of developing such projects, which, of course, would affect their quality.

Our current thinking is to have the financial capacity to develop as well as the proper investment in R&D to build quality products and that will improve the platform as well as improve the business in the long run.

If we distribute our exclusives by subscription, we may have to reduce the investment required for this, and this will degrade the quality of games

Earlier, the head of the PlayStation spoke in a similar way, saying that with a subscription system, Sony exclusives in their current form could not exist.

A new era in the Windows mobile game console market

With the release of Ryzen 6000 mobile processors, equipped with very powerful iGPUs, a new era of Windows handheld game consoles is dawning.

The Aya Neo 2 console with Ryzen 7 6800U was unveiled yesterday, and now GPD has boasted that it has already acquired a batch of the same APUs, so GPD Win Max 2 test models based on this platform should be ready by June. Judging by the entry, the company did not expect that it would be able to get the processors so quickly.

GPD Win Max 2 was introduced back in March, but with a Core i7-1280P processor, but its graphics subsystem is no match for the iGPU in the Ryzen 7 6800U.

As a result, before the end of the year, at least two more portable set-top boxes with Windows that can handle modern games should appear on the market. True, apparently, in both cases we are talking about a Full HD screen, which creates an additional load on the GPU. For the same Steam Deck, the resolution is HD.

  • Cyberpunk 2077
  • Farming Simulator 22
  • Tiny Tina’s Wonderland
  • WWE 2K22

Sony promises monthly replenishment of the list of free games. As you can see, comparing such a PS Plus to Xbox Game Pass, the latter benefits from the release of Microsoft exclusives on their launch day, but the Sony subscription offers more iconic and highly regarded titles, including PlayStation exclusives that are not available on PC.

The launch of the new PS Plus will take place on May 24 in Asia, then it will be available in Japan on June 2, after June 13 North and South America will be connected, and in other markets the service will become available on June 27.

AMD will not remain a monopolist in the console market. The next Nintendo Switch will likely use the Nvidia platform again

AMD will not remain a monopolist in the console market

The second-generation Nintendo Switch console, whatever it’s called, looks set to once again be based on Nvidia’s single-chip system.

AMD will not remain a monopolist in the console market.  The next Nintendo Switch will likely use the Nvidia platform again

This conclusion is made by sources based on a new Nvidia vacancy. The company is looking for a tool engineer for game console developers.

Considering that Sony and Microsoft have long opted for AMD solutions, the current Nintendo Switch is based on SoC Tegra, and no other major companies seem to be going to seriously enter the console market, it is most likely that we are talking about the development platforms for the new Nintendo console. True, this may mean that such a prefix will not be released soon.

By the way, the other day Nintendo itself indirectly confirmed that it would continue to use the Nvidia platform in its new console. The company said that it is very important for it to maintain the continuity of generations and implement a smooth transition. And the easiest way to do this is to keep the platform of the same manufacturer.
