The Co-founder of Thatgamecompany, Jenova Chen, who developed Journey, has recently commented on the PlayStation Network Audience; labelling PSN gamers ‘more adult.’

“Sony has a more artistic and adult-focused taste. They care about how grown-ups feel toward their games,” Chen stated. “The player who owns a PlayStation 3 is more likely to be interested in artistic games compared to Wii and Xbox 360.”

Thatgamecompany’s titles, unsurprisingly only feature on the Playstation, however, Jack Buser, Sony’s Senior Director of PlayStation Digital Platforms also commented:

“Our primary PSN audience is indeed more adult, and many of our best-selling titles appeal to this demographic. Many PlayStation and PSN games have themes that require a user to think and feel about a deep, immersive gameplay experience, and we see that exemplified in the success of titles like Flower, Journey and Heavy Rain. Titles like these can only be found on PlayStation, and our users enjoy the emotional and thematic sophistication of their games, especially with our digital offerings,” Buser commented.
