178w ago - In an interview with Develop-Online.net (linked above), SCE studio boss Shuhei Yoshida revealed that developers will be more integrated into their future hardware plans.
To quote: "So he wanted developers in meetings at the very beginning of concepting new hardware, and he demanded SCE people talk to us (developers)."
And when asked whether this change in philosophy will be applied to future PlayStation hardware, Yoshida replied: "Yes, we are undergoing many activities that we haven't yet been talking about in public. Some future platform related activities."
Yoshida also hinted that several activities are currently being worked on that are not public yet, to quote: "undergoing many activities that we haven't yet been talking about in public. Some future platform related activities."
Whether he is referring to the rumored PSP2 or an upcoming PS4, things will definitely be exciting for next-generation gamers.

PS4? Not for, at least, 5 more years, I hope... With all the power and technology available, and the high price of games, developement etc., Sony and Xbox decided to upgrade their consoles with 'motion' hardwares, which is a very good choice and just keeps our consoles alive for more years to come, also offering a broader range of games (casual, hardcore, etc.).
PSP2, I hope! All the game exploits, lack of functionnalities, piracy... this killed the PSP. New hardware with better performance would be much appreciated. PSPGo = big flop. PSP1000, PSP2000, PSP3000 = almost all the same.
i wouldn't say they fell behind this time... just took a long time for it to pick up, but yeah this will probably have leaking issues. If all goes well this is a pretty great idea because the developers will be able to understand the hardware before it is even released.
i smell trouble. unless they only talk to sony exclusive developers their new technology will leak to the competition like it did with the cell processor development. let's hope they get it right this time in regards to security for their new technology. i'd hate to see sony fall behind two generations in a row.
