Sony’s Jim Ryan interview: ‘We don’t need to buy exclusivity’

PlayStation Europe boss Jim Ryan has many reasons to be cheerful, and it’s easy to see why.

At Sony’s Gamescom conference this week, he revealed that the PlayStation 4 has now sold 10 million consoles in less than nine months. A remarkable sales record that establishes the PS4 and the clear frontrunner in the next-gen console race.

Yet despite this, when we met with him at Gamescom, he assured us the figure could have been even higher had it not been for the stock shortages that followed the console’s launch in some regions.

Though Sony may be enjoying the dream start with the PS4, there are still some issues to address. The apparent lack of first-party support for the Vita continues to linger, while the release schedule for PlayStation 4 games this year is looking thinner than expected.
