Sony: Let’s Focus On Hardcore Gamers

Tired of seeing your gaming providers turn again and again to casual gamers? For those on PS3, that time is at an end. Sony have confirmed that they will be focusing less on casual projects such as Playstation Move, Buzz and other enterprises and instead on extending a hand to hardcore gamers. Sony wants to return the love we give them, it seems that since we’ve helped them, they want to help us. I for one, always think it’s nice to see a company want to actively and unnecessarily help their community.

More after the jump!

Sony Quote:

We now want to bring back the focus on hardcore gamers, we realize the hardcore gamers are the ones that are actively involved in the community and are constantly giving feedback not to mention being the most dedicated.

Xbox Live subscribers have the privilege of excellent community features. Implemented services such as cross-game chat are invaluable and Sony are trying to strengthen the community. Sony Game Studio games always feature good single player and while I for one, greatly enjoy single player, it’s hard to communicate to friends. Sony knows this, they also know that the same single player gamers enjoy going online and decimating with clan members and friends by your side. Are they going to fill the space that separates both types of gaming? The hardcore community screams for cross game chat and Sony tell us that they are going to give us ‘what we want’. Nothing has been confirmed yet, I hope that cross-game chat will be coming to PS3 at some time in the not-so-distant future.

the plan for the future is to bring the community back together

However, Sony have mentioned that they will be holding tournaments in the future. Tournament features could be a godsend for game battles users.

Sony Spokesman Quote:

What I would ideally want is 200 people playing Killzone in a tournament.

Sony game studios have produced some incredible games and I believe in Sony as a company. Microsoft have served their community well and continue to do so. Now it’s time for Sony to step up to the platform (no pun intended). I’m certain that we can all look forward to whatever Sony has in store for us. I’ll look out for any other news on this matter and keep you all posted. Move, Buzz and other casual services have been brilliantly finished and the quality is dazzling. Sony knows what we want, so let them bring it to us in style.
