Sony CEO Andy House Interview: Gearing Up for PlayStation Vita

50°
148w ago - Sony Manager James Gallagher has shared an interview today with CEO Andy House on gearing up for PlayStation Vita below!

To quote: The launch of PlayStation Vita is just two days away and hopefully your thumbs are twitching at the prospect of getting it into your hands and enjoying what we believe is the strongest launch line-up of games in PlayStation history.

One man that has had a part to play in that history is Andy House, President and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment. I recently spoke to him about life in Japan, the imminent launch of PS Vita and how we as a business are welcoming this proud new addition to the PlayStation family.

PlayStation.Blog: This is your second time working in Tokyo, how has the Japanese games market changed in the time you've been away?

Andy House, President and CEO, Sony Computer Entertainment: Well that intervening period was 15 years so things have changed dramatically. What's interesting, and the one thing that hasn't really changed, is that you still see these sales spikes of a system based on a single major game release, and I think that Japan is the most content-driven of the three major markets in that sense.

The other difference is that there seems to be a shift in Japanese gamers' habits - in the...

160w ago - Today SCEE Blog Manager James Gallagher has shared a video interview on MotorStorm RC which will be heading to both PS Vita and the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

Video: PlayStation Vita Interview with Shuhei Yoshida at TGS 2011

250°
170w ago - Recently Sony's Shuhei Yoshida confirmed that PlayStation Vita will be region-free, and over the weekend GameSpot (linked above) did an interview with him discussing PS Vita's US / EU launch slated for early next year.

Previously, we reported that PS Vita is scheduled to hit Japan on December 17, 2011.

To quote: "Currently, with the PlayStation 3 and PSP, physical media is released region-free, allowing games published in one country to be played without hassle in another.

However, Sony's digital strategy restricts content to the region in which it is released, with access being determined by the region of a user's PlayStation Network profile.

As announced earlier this week, the PS Vita will launch alongside 26 games in Japan on December 17. Sony expects to release its newest gaming hardware in Europe and North America sometime in early 2012."

174w ago - SCEE's James Gallagher has shared a Gamescom 2011 interview today with writer Anthony Burch of Borderlands 2 for the PS3 entertainment system.

To quote: Gamescom 2011 is a hazy memory now that I'm back at my London desk, watching raindrops fall down the window and imagining they're racing each other, but that doesn't mean our coverage is over.

I still have a few interviews to bring you, starting with Anthony Burch, writer on the recently announced Borderlands 2.

What did you think of the original Borderlands and will you be picking up the sequel?

Video: El Shaddai PS3 Interview: From Japan with Love

200°
180w ago - Sony's Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has posted up an El Shaddai PS3 video interview today alongside details on the PlayStation 3 title, as follows:

With vibrant colors, buttery-smooth animation, and an uncluttered presentation (no HUD!), El Shaddai is a real head-turner.

The game's premise is as unusual as its visuals are striking. "This is a retelling of the [Register or Login to view links], part of the [Register or Login to view links]," Ignition Entertainment's Shane Bettenhausen told me. "It's not meant to be a complete retelling - we've taken some liberties."

Liberties such as mobile phones, designer jeans, and a driving level which would be at home in a TRON or Final Fantasy title. Despite the biblical angle, I wouldn't consider El Shaddai a religious experience any more than I would Bayonetta a treatise on witchcraft. Instead, the source material offers up an interesting story and guides some of the gameplay elements.

"Enoch, as a character in the bible, is immortal," Bettenhausen told me. "He cannot die. So when you die in this game, you always have the chance to come back to life. If you jam on the four buttons that you use to play the game fast enough, you come back to life....
