Focus on the hardcore gaming crowd.
With the big day approaching soon, there are a lot of assumptions on what Sony are going to announce on February, 20th. There are several rumors each day and it is getting like a big cloud of dust, where nothing is clear.
Rumors and assumptions aside, it is always best to listen to what a well known industry member has to say on the matter. Paradox Interactive CEO Fredrik Wester has shared some interesting thoughts regarding Sony and Microsoft’s next gen consoles.
He wishes that Sony and Microsoft should focus on the hardcore gaming crowd, something that Steam is doing.
Sony and Microsoft need to focus on the hardcore gamer.
“If I can make a wish list for upcoming consoles from Microsoft and Sony I have two wishes. The first one is that it’s easier to publish content for the platforms and it should be more digital focused. That’s one wish. Maybe three wishes. The second one is digital focus which should be obvious to anyone. And the third wish then is a return to hardcore gaming,” he said
He also believes that Sony and Microsoft are two such companies that can provide competition to Steam.
“Please the hardcore gaming crowd first and foremost, because Steam is sort of taking over that crowd and as much as I love Steam, and the people working for Steam and their pioneer position in the gaming industry I still think they need competition and Microsoft and Sony are the ones that should provide that competition,” he said to GR.
With the Steam’s new gaming hardware on the horizon, Wester’s comment makes sense. What do you guys think?
