We know that all the big movie studios want to step into their own cinematic world, and Sony is also ready to launch its controller in the ring. Rather than trying to create a large, interconnected cinematic universe, he wants to use his many PlayStation gaming properties as a basis for further expanding into the world of cinema.
Even though the majority of video game movie adaptations haven’t been very good, they remain a lucrative market in the movie world that has only grown in recent years thanks to the success of films like Detective Pikachu and Sonic the Hedgehog. , who began to prove that video game movies can be both good and popular.
Sony believes that its many popular game properties have the ability to be successful in both the movie and TV series market. PlayStation Productions released a Rachet and Clank movie in 2016, but now it wants to raise the bar. There’s already an Uncharted movie on the way, as well as an upcoming Last of Us TV series on HBO Max, but according to PlayStation director Jim Ryan, these are just the start of bigger plans for the company in this. space, as he revealed at CES. 2021:
[Uncharted and Last of Us] are just the start of expanding our storytelling into new media and an even wider audience. Sony is a creative entertainment company and entertainment has never been more important.
There is no doubt that the PlayStation brand has enough properties that should be able to attract a wide interest in various film and series projects, although I imagine the great benefit that Sony hopes to gain from it is to reach new audiences. and will likely get more people to play some of their games.
With properties like God of War, Sly Cooper, Jax and Dexter or even last year’s Ghost of Tsushima, they certainly have the right source material to turn into blockbuster movies and series. Which PlayStation exclusives would you like to see fit?
