Sony On Delivering PS4 Exclusives: "We've Got Work To Do"

We all know that Sony's AAA exclusive lineup for PlayStation 4 isn't as prominent as it should be right now, and the holiday season is pretty bare.

Sony admitted as much earlier this year and now, another PlayStation boss has said they've got "work to do" to deliver those high-profile exclusives.

Sony President of Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida first addressed Eurogamer's questions about PS4's success thus far; at last count, the system had shipped over 25 million systems worldwide. Yoshida said the company had "modest projections" for the new console but it continues to exceed expectations. As he said, "it's still the fastest-selling PlayStation platform ever."

Then, in regards to exclusives versus third-parties, Yoshida said:

"Typically--it's ironic in a sense--when a platform's doing really well, studio side kind of struggles. It probably has some relationship to these two things. When a platform's doing well, third-parties support it more. So from a pure software standpoint, there'll be more competition. When the platform's not doing so well, our games become more prominent, and we get larger market share within the same platform."

Yoshida added that he's happy with PS4's path right now (it also includes PlayStation VR), set to launch in the first half of 2016), but they still need to bring us those exclusives:

"We're happy with how it's going, and we're excited about welcoming PlayStation VR. From a delivering games standpoint, we have work to do. People constantly ask us for the big exclusive AAA games."

We have seen a few AAA exclusives for PS4 this year, including Bloodborne and The Order: 1886, but after Uncharted 4: A Thief's End got delayed (it's now set for March), the holiday season went cold for PS4 exclusives. Well, the console continues to win out, though!

Just watched a recent pic of Kojima with the guy that designed the PS4, that got me hyped!

I would love to see Kojima make another action stealth game like Metal Gear that's PS exclusive. Since he closed the story arc in the Metal Gear universe, he's free to explore a new universe.

I agree also the XBoX community hated MGS5, go and watch Tomb Raider articles in some they say they can't wait for it to be released because MGS5 was disappointing lol!.

This kind of games are not for that fanbase, hope Kojima go to where he gonna actually fit, Sony.

With Konami still intending to make console games, I doubt that it's for sale.
