SCE Chief Shuhei Yoshida Says Industry Innovation Will Stall Without Supporting Our Smaller Devs | PS3Blog.net
In an article from develop-online.net, Yoshida has been quoted saying that we must support our smaller garage developers or the industry will stall in innovation.
This was said with the Playstation Vita in mind. He went on to say that the dev kits for the Vita were kept inexpensive so that smaller devs could more easily obtain them and that they could make some amazing games even just using a small portion of the control schemes the Vita offers.
What does this mean for us? It means we could see a vast library of smaller, cheaper games akin to the iPhone today.
Regardless of what the future holds, we can honestly say that Yoshida is a guy that “gets it” when it comes to gamers and the industry.
