Sony Has 17 Game Development Studios Working on PlayStation First-Party Games

First-Party games are usually integral to a platform holder advertising why a potential buyer would want to purchase their console. A console needs games to be played on it for entertainment, and exclusives help to sell a specific console or platform. A First-Party game specifically is when a game is developed and published by the company responsible for the platform on which it is released. Many of the Nintendo Switch exclusive games, for example, are developed and published by Nintendo themselves.
