But it's not all you'll find on PS4
Layden lays the smackdown
Sony does make service-based games; MLB The Show 17 and Gran Turismo Sport are examples of that business model in action. However, the platform holder’s also one of the few publishers doubling down on single player titles right now, and speaking at PSX 2017 overnight, PlayStation boss Shawn Layden has noted the...
Trio of titles on the way
Sony is anticipating a big end to the year for its various Japanese developers. The release schedule for the second half of 2017 includes three titles from its Eastern first-parties: Knack 2 from Japan Studio, Gran Turismo Sport from Polyphony Digital, and Everybody’s Golf from Clap-Hanz in collaboration once again with...
But it's not all you'll find on PS4
There’s talk of the traditional single player campaign dying out, and looking at E3 2017 there was certainly some evidence of that. Ubisoft’s press conference was filled wall-to-wall with service-based experiences – and not even the long-awaited Beyond Good & Evil 2 could escape the model’s grasp...
They get turned into superheroes in GIFs and some even idolise them, but it’s important to remember that gaming executives are exactly that: gaming executives. They’re hired to make difficult (and, honestly, often boring) business decisions – not act like rock stars. And in a wide-ranging interview with Polygon, current PlayStation...
Not about creating haves and have-nots
Sony may not have shown the PlayStation 4K at E3 2016 this week, but its messaging has been razor sharp: the iterative console represents a step-forward for gamers looking for the best possible performance, but no one will get left behind. It's an option – and it will be sold concurrently alongside the...
Shawn Layden promises news next week
Sony's set to hold a big PlayStation VR presentation at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco next week, with launch plans likely to be made official by the manufacturer. And speaking on the latest episode of the PlayStation Blogcast, president Shawn Layden has reiterated that, hinting that there's...
But what's it planning?
We tend to ban the word 'E3' here at Push Square Towers until at least May, but that's not possible if you work at PlayStation HQ. In an interview with SCEA president Shawn Layden on the latest PlayStation Blogcast, the animated suit alluded that the company's been planning for the Los Angeles-based event for three months...
He's talking about that Paragon trailer
Maybe Sony Computer Entertainment America's CEO Shawn Layden has a different perception of the phrase 'drop the mic', because we're pretty sure that Sony failed to do so at its recent PlayStation Experience 2015 press conference. For those who missed it, the Japanese company closed its keynote with a CG...
Boo this man
Not like this, Shawn Layden! We were starting to really like SCEA's new president, but you absolutely can't walk on stage at a PlayStation press conference wearing a Crash Bandicoot t-shirt if you're not going to… Y'know, at least announce that the orange furred favourite is making a comeback. Our live chat was absolutely packed...
You gotta believe
Vib Ribbon’s recent release on the PlayStation Network has proven that new SCEA boss Shawn Layden has his heart in the right place. While he may not yet have a commanding stage presence like his predecessor Jack Tretton, the suit certainly knows PlayStation through and through, having previously worked with the firm in both...
Sony’s been heavily criticised this holiday for failing to match the exclusive output of its competitors. With just DriveClub and LittleBigPlanet 3 representing the bulk of its retail titles for the PlayStation 4, its lineup has looked a little thin – but speaking in an interview with Venture Beat, SCEA boss S
"It's no fun being safe"
Shawn Layden may not be the most interesting man ever on an E3 stage, but he comes across differently in this interview with IGN. The new SCEA boss was asked about the disastrous state of DriveClub, and he defended Evolution Studios, indicating that he’d rather they attempted t
