Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Andrew House talked earlier this week at a keynote at Develop Conference in Brighton, UK, and he explained that the bridges with the original PlayStation’s creator Ken Kutaragi definitely haven’t been cut.

House mentioned that he remains in close touch with Kutaragi-san and all the other founders of the company. As a matter of fact he was at Sony Computer Entertainment’s offices on Monday. House wanted to show him something and Kutaragi-san has a project that he’s working on that he wants to enlist SCE’s help on.

According to House, the relationship with Kutaragi-san has developed in a really great one and has deepened overtime. He has even offered advice and perspective prior to the launch event:

He is really pleased about the way that PlayStation 4 has shaped up. I think that it’s in keeping with his original vision for the organization. We get some tremendous support from him, which is just great.

I’m sure I’m not the only one whose curiosity has been piqued by Kutaragi-san’s project on which he’d like to collaborate with the house of PlayStation. Currently he’s the CEO of Cyber AI Entertainment, where he works with two other Sony veterans, former SCEA President Takashi Usuki and former Development Director Yasuhiko Yokote.

Why Ratchet & Clank is the Most Important PS5 Game

The company’s official website mentions “Real-time information processing systems using next-generation network technology and research and development of digital signal processing technology. Enabling the creation of a new entertainment market and a new network platform. Research and development of the human interface for the next generation.”

While we have no way to know if this is what House was talking about, it’s definitely intriguing.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. 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.
