Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida and Adam Boyes Weigh in on Whether Video Games are Art or Not

The question “are video games art?” became a heated topic of discussion after Roger Ebert denied the artistic nature of our hobby a long time ago. Yet, it keeps resurfacing here and there once in a while.

Today that question was answered over Twitter by two of the front men of soon-to-be Sony Interactive Entertainment, Shuhei Yoshida and Adam Boyes. Interestingly, their answers are quite different from each other.
