Sony’s Shahid Ahmad Sends a Heartfelt “Thank You” to PlayStation Developers

Sony Computer Entertainment Senior Business Development Manager Shahid Ahmad is known for being one of the men that work every day in close contact with developers to bring more games to PS4, PS3 and PS Vita, and today he decided to sent a heartfelt “thank you” to those that make the games we play over Twitter.

Thanks to all the hundreds of developers working with us and all those still joining us. You are my daily inspiration.

You have finished and released so many great games. You made my dreams come true.

You put up with our foibles and handled issues with class and dignity, and together, we’ve got so much done. We salute you.

Every single day the PlayStation team around the world are in contact with developers, working hard on making the future better for us all.

Ahmad and his team recently won the “Publishing Hero” award at the Develop Conference exactly for their relationship and hard work with developers around the world.

Cheesy as it may sound, I’d like to Join Ahmad in his thanks, and not just to PlayStation developers, mind you.

Too often the idea that we pay for their games makes us forget how many women and men work long days and often nights and go above and beyond the call of duty to create and polish the games we love.

They entertain us, they inspire us, and often they lift us up when we had a bad day. A few get the spotlight, but all the thousands of engineers and programmers that work behind the scenes deserve to be recognized as well.

Thank you.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
