Jim Ryan of Sony is hoping "The Last Guardian" will sell to make up with the rather uneventful impact of the game "Shadow of the Colossus."

Ryan said that while both games were highly acclaimed by fans and analysts, very few bought them and has registered a low income after. This time, he hopes that "The Last Guardian" can make an impact, because games like this takes on a big budget and sells expensively on the market. At the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3 2015), Sony reintroduced "The Last Guardian" after years of absence. With its new and remade features in time for the E3, Sony hopes people will support and buy the game as "The Last Guardian" is one of the "Big Reveals" on the recent E3 2015.

Sony also capitalized on the fans of the game who have waited years for it to be re launched. In a statement made by Shuhei Yoshida of Sony, he admitted that the game's released which was primarily for the version of Playstation 3 failed. During their introduction at the E3 2009, Sony had high hopes of launching the game in PS3; however, things changed as its introductory video didn't match the frame by frame features needed in order to have the game available on Playstation3.

If anything else, according to AttackOfTheFanBoy, Sony should also take into consideration the timing of its release and avoid the time where other AAA video games are launched. Because of Sony's early introduction of PS4, the game was designed for the higher version, and should it have been played on PS3, some of its features would have been compromised.

 According to VG247, Yoshida admitted having Knack creator  Mark Cerny  in the team to help out, but never to take over any revisions on "The Last Guardian."

Ryan's interview, which was posted on Metro UK, held nothing but the struggles Sony had to go through in order to have the game re launched in the best position yet. While there have been many glitches in the past, Ryan still hopes their launching on E3 will make a difference.
