Everything indicates that Sony will start cooperation with Konami. The big brands will return, and the games will be PlayStation-only for a limited time.
The next PlayStation Showcase will be unique
It’s been a while since the last “big” Sony show. Although State of Play took place last month, it was fully dedicated to Final Fantasy XVI – and while Square Enix’s upcoming blockbuster is an extremely hot topic, it was an event definitely different from the standard conferences of the Tokyo giant.
Every Sony event is packed with exciting announcements, so it’s natural for all players to look forward to these events. According to information provided by trusted insiders, the next big event of the Japanese company is to take place in May or early June – which is already great news. And this is not the end of the revelations, actually just the beginning…
Sony’s new event will be groundbreaking? We are about to enter the “second phase” of PS5!
As reported by Jeff Grubb some time ago, Sony had two events planned: State of Play (the one that took place in April and concerned FF16) and PlayStation Showcase – much bigger and more important. This is the event that is coming soon. This event is set to be groundbreaking in many ways – insiders such as Tom Henderson and Andy Robinson promise that it will usher in a new era; “second phase” of PlayStation 5. The Tokyo giant is to show a set of new great titles and even accessories.
Sony made a deal with Konami? This collaboration will please many
Although the news of the new Sony contract, Hideo Kojima may get dizzy, due to his past at Konami and a rather grand departure in an atmosphere far from ideal and cooperation with PlayStation at Kojima Productions (of course, the studio of the father of series such as Metal Gear Solid and Death Stranding is not part of PlayStation Studios), most players should be delighted.
Informants report that Sony was finally about to close the contract with Konami. This means the return of many iconic and long-awaited brands and, of course, benefits for PlayStation in the form of at least “temporary exclusivity”. According to Robinson, we can expect games such as a remake of Metal Gear Solid 3 (which has been rumored for a long time; anyway, the whole series deserves a solid development from scratch), a new entry in the Silent Hill series (which is being developed by Bloober Team – a Polish studio responsible for, among others, The Medium or Layers of Fear), as well as the new part of Castlevania (a classic slasher, which Hideo Kojima also worked on at one time). Sounds good? Yet how!
Added to this is the issue of temporary exclusivity for the Sony console. Of course, I wouldn’t expect these games to be exclusively available on PlayStation consoles all the time – but you can assume that we will be dealing with a similar situation as with games like Ghostwire: Tokyo or Deathloop. After some time (possibly a full year), all Konami titles will go to Windows PCs and Xbox consoles.
Is Nintendo planning to respond to the big PlayStation announcements somehow?
Of course, all these reports should still be taken with a grain of salt – until we receive official confirmation, we can’t be sure of anything. Andy Robinson decided to additionally raise the topic of Nintendo, which will release The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom in a few days, and all players are waiting for the announcement of the new console of the great N.
Well, according to the informant … the Japanese company has no such plans at all. It looks like Nintendo is now fully focused on Link’s new adventures and has no intention of announcing any Switch successor in the coming months. But let’s hope it will happen by the end of this year.
