The big man himself has something to say.
It’s really no surprise that the PlayStation 4 has proved to be as successful as many of us predicted it would be. It’s a powerful beast of a home console that comes close to matching the capabilties of a gaming PC which, for a console, is a very impressive feat indeed. Not only that, but it’s supported by a vast library of games and add on apps. But what does Andrew House, president and Group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment, have to say about the PlayStation 4?
Well, House views the PlayStation side of Sony as “sitting in between” both the electronics and entertainment demographics that Sony caters to. Which makes sense, the console does mix the best of both worlds and does so in a way that makes it affordable.
Like many developers, publishers and creative minds, House admits that there has been a rise in the price of development for what he calls “really cutting edge” PS4 games. But with the architecture that’s being used in the PS4, they are able to get sort out their Research and Development costs, keeping things profitable for the most part despite going through ups and downs. He called this, rather humorously, the “Rollercoaster”.
But what do you objectively think of the PlayStation 4?
