PlayStation Boss says it’s ‘perverse to limit the enjoyment’ of its first-party IP to consoles as Sony looks at smartphones

Jim Ryan, CEO and Chairman of Sony Interactive Entertainment, has revealed that the format holder will soon bring us news about its push to mobile devices, stating it feels “perverse” to limit its first-party offerings to PlayStation consoles.

During an interview with Axios, Ryan talked about Sony’s decision to dip his toes into the realm of smartphone gaming, making it clear that there’s no point in limiting its vast portfolio of IPs to just the PlayStation community.

The thinking here is that our IP portfolio is currently in such a strong state that it seems perverse to limit its enjoyment to our existing PlayStation community.

Ryan added: “We are working on some models to open up to mobile,” but cannot confirm whether these mobile games would be made in-house at Sony’s suite of studios, or whether they would bring in new talent to direct the projects.

Sony’s latest home console, the PS5, was launched in major markets in November 2020 and has sold more than 7.8 million units worldwide as of March 31, 2021.
