Yoshida: PS4 Will Be Featured Heavily at TGS
No sign of PS4, PSP, or PS Vita.
Gamescom is this week, and then the Tokyo Game Show will be next month; once a premier hotbed for the Japanese game development industry, it has become a shadow of its former self in recent years, with game developers jumping ship from consoles, and even the handhelds, to announce new projects for smartphones and tablets instead.
However, in a new interview with Famitsu (translated by zeromcd73 on NeoGAF), Sony Worldwide Studios head Shuhei Yoshida heavily hinted that the PS4 would be featured heavily at TGS.
The bullet points from the full interview, as summarized by zeromcd73, are as follows:
- Some new titles they planned to announce at Gamescom had to be cut out of the presentation; one of the reasons why was because they decided to put in new trailers for The Order and Bloodborne
- Sony will be working with other publishers in Japan to help increase the userbase of the PS4 in Japan
- PS4 will be be getting lots of new content at TGS
- Project Morpheus will have content that will be very appealing to the Japanese audience
- Studio that’s developing WiLD are the new studio by the people that made Rayman
- Not a single mention of PSV/PS3/PSP
All of that sounds great and promising, although it sounds like even SCEJ is ditching the Vita for the PS4…
Oh well. Hopefully they can compensate by having some kickass PS4 support.
