    Seems to me like they just buy up exclusivity to everything they can. Many of the top PS exclusives aren't Sony's, the same can't be said for Nintendo or (afaik) Microsoft.

    Do Sony actually make any particularly decent games themselves?

    Umm isn't god of war made by sony? Horizon Zero dawn, Shadow of colossus, eco, the last guardian? Sly cooper, Ratchet and clank? Parappa the Rapper, If not then perhaps I don't really know. :unsure:

    I remember Legend of Legaia, a old rpg for ps1 and ps2. Not sure about more of them but I'm sure there is some out there. How else can they make a playstation all star fighting game.

    They have studios that are explicitly associated with them like studio japan, that made Patapon and Gravity Rush.
    Other studios like Insomnia games, Naughty Dog, etc. are separate companies, but Sony still has platform exclusivity for games they make so it is not that important if they make some games themselves or let other people make them.
    Nintendo has more in house development studios, but they also have Retro Studios, Monolith Software, etc. so I don't care that much about them explicitly making their own games.

    God of War... Forgot about that.
    There are a few, but it seems hardly comparable to Microsoft or Nintendo's IPs.

    Still seems a lot like they just buy up exclusivity to everything possible. Which, while a reasonable business strategy, seems rather lame to me.

    Probably similar to Smash Bros, where characters are licensed.
    How many of those do Sony own?

    PlayStation has a a sector of their company called World Wide Studios. World Wide Studios is a collection of 1st party studios that PlayStation owns. These Studios include SuckerPunch, Naughty Dog, Santa Monica, Media Molecule, Bend Studios, etc. So technically all these games are made under the Sony Interactive Entertainment umbrella.
