Metroid Dread Is Already Being Emulated On PC

Discourse about Metroid Dread has been running in the media today as sites have claimed it is playing replicated by PC within a few days after it was released.

PlayStation’s Current Reach “Frustrates” Boss Jim Ryan

PlayStation Chief Executive Officer, Jim Ryan, sat on Gamesindustry.biz to discuss his reasons for why Jim Ryan isn’t satisfied with the PlayStation’s current popularity and why they should allow more people to enjoy their games. In his own words, “Music and movies, can be enjoyed by a vast number of people. And I’m convinced that the works that our studios produce are among the most beautiful entertainment to be seen anyplace in the globe. It’s a bit like putting a stop to people from enjoying the fantastic artwork, amazing entertainment our studios create… and to limit the public in the range of 20 to 30 million is a travesty to me. I’d like to see a world in which thousands of millions of players take part in these games.”
