On this week’s episode of IGN’s weekly PlayStation show, host Jonathon Dornbush is joined by Mark Medina and Jada Griffin to check in on Mark’s perilous journey atop Splash Mountain, and also discuss the biggest PlayStation news of the week.The crew digs into PlayStation confirming it is adapting God of War, Horizon, and Gran Turismo into TV shows or movies (note: we recorded before reports suggested GT will be a movie, not a show!), our hopes and expectations for what Netflix’s Horizon show may be, how God of War on Amazon could shake out, and if the classic Need for Speed film is a good blueprint for Gran Turismo.
We also discuss some of PlayStation’s future ambitions for not just PlayStation’s biggest games becoming movies and TV shows, but also their plans to expand their PC experiences, as well as their mobile games output. We look into their plans for the next few years, what they likely mean for PlayStation’s focuses, and while we think the great PlayStation games we love aren’t going anywhere.
We also dig into the leaks of a Death Stranding 2, some PS Plus updates, Jada’s impressions of Multiversus, and more!
