Sony?s Jim Ryan Criticized for Saying That People in the Middle East ?Never Played Games Before PlayStation?






Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan is no stranger to making controversial statements, and he’s done it again.
Speaking to Games Industry during an interview that was published last week, Ryan claimed that people in the Middle East “never played games before PlayStation.” For context, here’s the entire quote:

One of the things that I am proud about there is that we kind of pushed the envelope. We opened up markets that had never had any gaming culture ever. Middle East… people had never played games before PlayStation in the Middle East. Russia had a tiny gaming industry before PlayStation. Spain had a very small gaming industry before PlayStation. So we really pushed the envelope geographically.

Ryan singled out the Middle East as an area where there was no gaming culture “ever” in the past, and a place where people “never played games before.” This is a very specific statement, especially in contrast to what Ryan said about Spain and Russia, although the entire paragraph is wholly inaccurate. While Western media failed to pick up on this (we chalk it up to a lack of awareness about international markets and their history), Middle Eastern publications as well as industry professionals like Rami Ismail called out Ryan for making such a sweeping statement. See their comments below.

“Middle East… people had never played games before PlayStation in the Middle East.”
