ICO and Shadow of the Colossus are two of the most praised and beloved titles in gaming history.

But strictly from a sales perspective, they didn't fare very well. And Sony says they can't afford to have that happen again.

During a new Metro interview with Sony boss Jim Ryan, we find that Sony has high hopes for The Last Guardian …but it really needs to perform well in the marketplace:

My organisation [Sony] did not perform particularly well with either Ico or Shadow Of The Colossus. I have berated them [the team] for this, and said, ‘We have to do better with this game’."

Ryan added that when it comes to projects like Guardian , "the sums are just too big" (in regards to the overall investment). This means the game has to hit both with critics and gamers because if consumers don't respond, it'll be a big loss for Sony.

The Last Guardian is now scheduled to launch some time next year exclusively for PlayStation 4.

It will do better than ICO and Shadow of Colossus but you have to make you advertise better and not take years to put it out on the shelves. Furthermore, they (Sony) cannot expect TLG to sell like other exclusives such as Uncharted, God Of War & Gran Turismo.

Maybe you shouldn't have copy/paste. You've omitted the end of your sentence on every page.

I cannot seriously believe Sony would even consider giving another project to Team Ico after it took them 9 years to finish this one. Good grief even their own studio head gave up on them years ago.
