If it was not already clear before this week, it most certainly should be now: PlayStation is about more than just its PS5 console and lineup of quality single player focused titles. Sony is pushing for more live-service games, it's porting more to PC, and its focus on mobile platforms is increasing. Some of these initiatives might not please its hardcore audience but they all still have one thing in common: they're about games. That's except for one other thing Sony is doing: turning PlayStation IPs into TV shows.
While none of the following have been released just yet, what we have confirmed so far is:
- Ghost of Tsushima TV Show
- God of War TV Show
- Gran Turismo Movie
- Gran Turismo TV Show
- Horizon TV Show
- The Last of Us TV Show
- Twisted Metal TV Show
And, of course, earlier this year we saw the big-screen debut of PlayStation Productions with Uncharted. It's done very well for itself, making more than $400 million worldwide. To learn more about All PlayStation Productions Movies and TV Shows, click the link.
It's clear why Sony is pushing in this direction: to make more money. However, do you actually care for these TV adaptations? We've come to know all of these big-budget franchises with a controller in our hands as we interact with the characters on screen and explored their worlds. Are you now happy to lose that interactivity for a TV show? That's the question we pose to you in the latest Push Square poll.
Will you gobble up all of these PlayStation TV shows, simply catch the ones based on the franchises you like, or avoid them because you simply don't care? Place your vote in our poll and expand on your thoughts in the comments below.
