Speaking to Reuters about PlayStation’s latest spate of investments and acquisitions, Hulst defined that whereas onlookers ought to think about how these offers will allow “collaborations on the sport growth aspect initially,” it is also doable the corporate will even begin to “discover alternatives” with its PlayStation Productions enterprise.

Those feedback have been instantly referring to Sony’s latest funding in FromSoftware, which noticed the console maker enhance its stake within the studio to 14.09 p.c.

Hulst’s feedback do not imply Sony is about to start out petitioning HBO to make an Elden Ring present or pitch a Demon’s Souls film to the bosses over at A24 (although, we would be all for that), but it surely’s nonetheless fascinating to listen to that Sony’s ongoing investments aren’t being made solely with video video games in thoughts.

PlayStation Productions has solely been operational since 2019, with Sony establishing the manufacturing arm to develop movies and tv exhibits primarily based on its online game catalog.

“You can see simply by watching older online game variations that the screenwriter or director didn’t perceive that world or the gaming factor,” stated Layden when PlayStation Productions launched in 2019. “The actual problem is, how do you are taking 80 hours of gameplay and make it right into a film? The reply is, you don’t. What you do is you are taking that ethos you write from there particularly for the movie viewers. You don’t attempt to retell the sport in a film.”
