Shuhei Yoshida: Many PS4 Games to be Announced Later This year; inFAMOUS: Second Son “Insanely Good”

on February 22, 2014 7:02 AM

After the launch event for the PS4 held yesterday in Tokyo, Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida took a few minutes to speak with the Japanese media, and answered a few questions by the Japanese website 4Gamer.

Yoshida-san mentioned that he expects third parties to develop games for both the PS4 and the PS3, and will switch to working on dedicated PS4 software as soon as the market will be large enough. Yet he knows that the responsibility of leading the charge rests with the Worldwide Studios:

We’re the first party, so we must release the good stuff. We’ll make big titles for the PS4.

He continued by explaining that there are many new PS4 titles in development that haven’t been announced yet, but Sony is working to be able to announce them by the end of the year.

Yoshida-san concluded the interview by saying that many Japanese also want to get to know western games, and by hyping the upcoming inFAMOUS: Second Son, calling it “insanely good.”

From what we’ve seen so far, it’s really hard to disagree.

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.
