Shawn Layden took part in a chat with the “What’s Up PlayStation” channel. For those who don’t remember, Shawn Layden was PlayStation’s president before Jim Ryan. Shawn Layden confesses in the interview that bringing PlayStation exclusives to the PC was his idea, not Jim Ryan’s.
According to Shawn Layden, the aim behind bringing PlayStation exclusives to the PC is to attract new PC-only gamers. As a result, they might enjoy PlayStation games and, in the end, convince PC users to buy a PlayStation machine merely to play an exclusive or sequel to a game that was available on PC but its sequel did not.
Many of those who judged Jim Ryan must now apologize.
