According to Sony Boss Jim Ryan, the upcoming PS5 will come hand-in-hand with the strongest lineup of games that the PlayStation has ever seen. Players won’t be hurting for new games for quite some time, thanks to the Sony team.
Speaking with GamesIndustry, SIE President and CEO Jim Ryan announced that the PS5 lineup of exclusives at launch will be “by far the strongest” Sony has ever seen.
