It’s no surprise that other companies would want to jump on that bandwagon, and one of the main participants is Sony, with their annual PlayStation Wrap-Up. You can check out this year’s version right here.
Those who participate will get a quick tour through their 2023 on PlayStation, including their total hours played, their top games, and even which controller they used most often. You can see some of my stats below – including how much time I spent revisiting Ezio’s games for an Assassin’s Creed retrospective earlier this year.
PlayStation has had a good 2023. Between Spider-Man 2’s critical success, the generally well-received launch of Final Fantasy XVI as a console exclusive, and new DLC modes coming to The Last of Us: Part II and God of War: Ragnarök, it’s finished the year strongly. This was follows their recent release of the PlayStation Portal – you can read out thoughts on the device here.
