Sony has introduced a new curation initiative to the PlayStation store that allows creators of some of its biggest titles to recommend games.
The Creators so far includes Sony Head of Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida, Guerrilla Games Managing Director Herman Hulst, and founder of Media Molecule Siobhan Reddy. Studios have their opinions voiced also, such as the Square Enix team that developed Final Fantasy XV, Rocket League developer Psyonix, and British-based Double Eleven.
While most developers recommend their own games, they do also have time for smaller titles that many people might not have heard of. Yoshida voices his opinion on platformer Downwell, whereas Psyonix are still playing Sportsfriends.
Curation isn’t new to the video game industry, and is something that Steam has been trying to perfect, albeit with mixed responses. The notion of big names within the industry themselves recommending titles is new, however.
So far The Creators is only available in the US, France, and Germany, but will likely be made accessible in other countries soon.
