Shuhei Yoshida Apologizes and Explains PS4 Game Delays
After a successful launch run with the PlayStation 4, Sony has fallen a few steps behind in the console war in regards to making content available for this year, specifically the holiday season.
Their E3 conference earlier this week cited a majority of their ace titles to release next year. On the other hand rival Microsoft brought sweet offerings for the year 2014, and hence giving consumers a reason to purchase an Xbox One.
In an interview with PlayStation LifeStyle, Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida apologized to all Sony fans when asked about the PlayStation 4 game delays.
He stated that the reason teams are taking more time to release their games is simply because the PlayStation can “do so much” more. Developers have started realizing the console’s potential and want more time to release a title that breaks boundaries rather than an early release date.
“What they are trying to achieve, they are challenging, y’know, something new,” he continued. “More realistic graphics, social connectivity, or seamless integration of single-player and multiplayer. And they are encountering new kinds of challenges, so they have to take more time than they anticipated.”
“But luckily, more people are now more understanding and more accomodating for the needs of the development team. And they (gamers) say they’d rather wait to play the best game the team can make rather than play a rushed title; because each development is such a big effort.”
Two of the PS4’s major upcoming titles, The Order: 1886 and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, are both scheduled for 2015. The games look beautiful and something that any PS4 owner would rather have play this Holiday season. Unfortunately we all will have to wait it out for the new year.
