Ex-SCEE Senior Producer on PS4: “Feels Like Sony Are Back on Form”
Phil Gaskell believes gamers are in for a treat.
In conversation with PSU, former Sony Computer Entertainment Europe senior producer Phil Gaskell – who’s worked on Super Stardust HD and Dead Nation – believes that with the PS4, Sony are back on form. Gaskell left SCEE and founded Ripstone Games in 2011.
“When we were still at Sony we were lucky enough to work with PS4 in its infancy, so it’s fantastic to see it fully realised and it’s a clear triumph for Mark Cerny – the lead architect – and the team.
“It feels like Sony are back on form, and as someone who started his career at Sony it makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. The exciting aspects for me are how connected these new consoles are, they’ve been built with today’s digital and connected world in mind. I think all us gamers are in for a treat.”
The PlayStation 4 is due to launch on November 15th in North America and November 29th in Europe.
