PlayStation 4 has seen some incredible sale numbers, with over 70 million consoles sold since it launched in 2013. With a strong selection of exclusive games such as Shadow of the Colossus, Ratchet and ClankUncharted 4: A Thief's End, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Nier: Automata, and Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice the system has a multitude of reasons to hop on board the Sony train. Now the company is focusing on keeping that momentum by providing more games made and published by Sony.


Sony revealed they're planning to remain competitive and by doing this by providing more first-party games to encourage existing gamers to keep engaged and entice newcomers. Furthermore, the company will restructure sales and marketing division within Sony Interactive Entertainment America, Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe, and Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan Asia to report to Jim Ryan, the company's deputy president and head of global sales and Marketing at SIE.

Increasingly, the value of interactive entertainment is differentiated by the broad spectrum and depth of experiences that it provides to customers. As such, SIE’s mission to create and develop the most attractive and powerful first party titles has become more important than ever. To fulfill this purpose, also effective April 1, Shawn Layden, current Chairman of Worldwide Studios (WWS) and SIEA President, will concentrate his focus on WWS continuing to provide platform-defining content that helps drive the growth of SIE.

Ryan will also head different regional branches along with John Kodera, who is president and CEO at SIE following Andrew House’s departure.
