Sony working on ‘future platform related activities’


sce-wwsSony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida has confirmed that Sony is indeed already working on some new hardware.

“Yes, we are undergoing many activities that we haven’t yet been talking about in public,” Yoshida told Develop. “Some future platform related activities.”

Yoshida didn’t specify if it’s a new portable or a new home console. What Yoshida did explain however was that Sony’s next line of PlayStations will be more developer-friendly, thanks to input from SCE president Kaz Hirai.

“When Ken Kutaragi moved on and Kaz Harai became the president of SCE, the first thing Kaz said was, ‘get Worldwide Studios in on hardware development’,” Yoshida said. “So he wanted developers in meetings at the very beginning [of the concept of the new hardware], and he demanded SCE people talk to us [developers].”

This closer collaboration between the hardware and software development teams is also reportedly what helped spawn the PlayStation Move motion controller. “Move is one of those new ways of developing platforms,” said Yoshida.

    I hope it’s more of a new PSP; we don’t need another 600 dollar console

    PSP should just go away, they’re losing so badly to the Nintendo DS its not funny, cut your losses Sony, concentrate on the home experience (TVs, and PS3/4 etc).

    The only way a new PSP will work is if they concentrate on just pumping out silly casual games for the casual gamer. Thats how Nintendo is such a handheld juggernaut. Of course I can’t stand that crap that they push on the market but whatever.
    If they make the PS4 more developer friendly, then there will be no stopping Sony and all the developers can stop all their bitching when it comes out and just concentrate on making great games.
