Could PlayStation Productions redefine the way that video game movies and TV shows are made?

Of course, PlayStation Heroes have been in theaters before. Let’s not forget the rather innocuous Ratchet & Clank of 2016. The creation of this new division, however, shows a marked shift in Sony’s thinking about how its IP can be applied to film and TV. So far, only Sony and Sony have determined the art direction of all upcoming PlayStation spin-offs for the big and small screens.

PlayStation Productions will be led by Asad Qizilbash, who has worked in Sony’s marketing department for over a decade, and will produce in-house projects. Why is this so important? Well, in the past, Sony has often tried to outsource potential PlayStation connections to outside studios…and those studios probably know pretty well what makes your favorite PlayStation games so special.

It was also helpful that Shawn Layden oversaw the process. The president of SIE Worldwide Studios even referred to the MCU as a constant source of inspiration in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. “When fans play 40 to 50 hours of a game and have to wait three to four years for a sequel, we want to give them a place to go and have more of an experience and a character they love in a different way.

With the massive reach of Sony Pictures and its subsidiaries, including Columbia and Samsung, PlayStation Productions should be able to attract a large talent pool of Hollywood veterans. Combining these types of movies and TV shows with PS4-loving PlayStation insiders, Kratos and Aloy can still conquer Tinseltown.

Could PlayStation Productions redefine the way that video game movies and TV shows are made?

PlayStation heroes have graced cinemas before, of course. Let’s not forget 2016’s reasonably harmless Ratchet & Clank. Yet the creation of this new division shows there’s been a marked change in thinking at Sony about how it adapts its IPs for film and TV. From here on out, it will be Sony and Sony alone that dictates the artistic direction of all forthcoming PlayStation big– and small-screen spin-offs.
Led by Asad Qizilbash – who’s worked in Sony marketing for over a decade – PlayStation Productions will produce projects internally. Why is this such a big deal? Well, in the past, Sony would often look to outsource potential PlayStation tie-ins to external studios… studios that probably knew diddly-squat about what makes your favourite PlayStation games so special.

It also helps that Shawn Layden is overseeing the entire process. Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, the chairman of SIE Worldwide Studios even referenced the MCU as an ongoing inspiration. “When fans beat a 40-to-50 hour game and have to wait three or four years for a sequel, we want to give them places they can go and still have more of that experience and see the characters they love evolve in different ways.” God Of War: Endgame, anyone? We can but dream. In the meantime, cross all the digits PP can make the recently confirmed Twisted Metal TV show a success. 
With the vast influence of Sony Pictures and its subsidiaries, which include Columbia and TriStar, PlayStation Productions should be able to draw on a considerable talent pool of experienced Hollywood veterans. Pair these movie and TV types with internal PlayStation people who love PS4, and Kratos and Aloy could conquer Tinseltown yet.
