We get fed the same spiel every generation, but newly minted PlayStation indies evangelist Shuhei Yoshida has purportedly been waxing lyrical about Sony’s next-gen system in an interview with Japanese magazine Dengeki PlayStation. According to DualShockers, the former Worldwide Studios chief reiterated how complicated the PlayStation 3 was to develop for, and how steps were taken to rectify this with the PlayStation 4.
The upcoming PlayStation 5, however, takes things to the next level. Allegedly studios working on the device are claiming that it’s the “easiest” console they’ve ever developed for. This, of course, doesn’t mean that teams are going to be pumping out AAA titles every six months; games are still outrageously difficult to develop, but it sounds like the Japanese giant has avoided hardware hurdles with its latest system. And that’s good news for players and creators alike.
