President of Sony Computer Entertainment promises "a wonderful year 2016" for PlayStation 4
It offers a list of video games for the Sony system and the plans they have for the virtual reality of PlayStation VR.
The president of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide, Shuhei Yoshida, has spoken at a Japanese winter event in Tokyo, echoed by the American portal DualShockers, about the year 2016 that awaits its users. Given some comments that have become somewhat pessimistic in recent days, Yoshida wanted to come to the fore to confirm to PlayStation 4 players that next year "is going to be wonderful."
He also assured that there are many games to be announced, and that it will be difficult to distribute them between the editions of the E3, Paris Games Week, Tokyo Game Show and the PlayStation Experience next year. The great absence, the German fair. Will the Japanese company be left out of the plans again Gamescom from Cologne? He also guaranteed that he would love to be able to announce a wide variety of new games, but that offering production dates is somewhat problematic for the studios themselves.
It offered a list of the PlayStation 4 games expected for next year exclusively in Japan: Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, Dark Soul III, Persona 5, NiOh, Final Fantasy XV, New Hot Shots Golf, The Last Guardian, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Gravity Rush 2, Gran Turismo Sport and Dreams. Needless to say, Final Fantasy XV and Dark Souls 3 are not exclusive to Sony in the rest of the world, and Xbox One players in the United States and Europe will be able to sink their teeth into it as well.
On virtual reality and his PlayStation VR, which seems capital in the company's short-term plans, he offered a second list with games: Ace Combat 7, Rez Infinite, RIGS: Machine combat League, Summer Lessons, Sega feat. Hatsune Miku Project - VR Tech Demo, Kitchen, The London Heist, Cyber Danganronpa VR, The Playroom VR and Driveclub. The plans of the device have not yet materialized in the face of the general public.
Yoshida did not talk about what has been one of the news of the day: the exclusive that Hideo Kojima will sign with his new Kojima Productions for PlayStation 4 on a date yet to be determined. Maintaining the leadership in the sales of current generation consoles, 2016 is planned as a capital year for Sony's interests.
