PlayStation Studios won’t be impacted by lack of competition from Xbox, dev implies
Morrison tweeted that developers at the big three are all “driven by an internal desire to create the best work possible.” As a result, lack of competition will not “degrade” the quality of PlayStation Studios games.
There’s an understandable concern by some that a perceived lack of competition could degrade quality of releases. At the developer level, PlayStation studios don’t compete against Xbox or Nintendo studios. We are all driven by an internal desire to create the best work possible.— Robert Morrison (@RobertAnim8er) February 7, 2024
While some understood Morrison’s take, others expressed concerns that as a company, PlayStation will have less of an incentive to invest in high quality games that set its platforms apart, should Xbox go multiplatform. Fans fear that as a consequence of that, PlayStation first-party output will suffer.
At the moment, there’s a big question mark around Xbox’s vision for the future. There’s evidence that the company plans to release some of its games on multiple platforms for financial reasons, but the extent of its change in strategy has yet to be established.
