Shuhei Yoshida, president of Sony’s Worldwide Studios, to Luke Plunkett of Kotaku when he dared to ask where the actual PS 4 was at the PS4 event today.
Plunkett’s wording indicates that Yoshida was joking with such a comment, but the “real” answer isn’t much better:
We really wanted to explain what we’ve done with the DualShock 4, but as far as the system itself we have to keep something new for later. Otherwise you’d get bored.
Such a strong start for Sony…
A great headline by Sam Byford for The Verge for a true farce of an event. Sony rushed to reveal basically nothing.
I stand by my prediction that Apple eats their lunch later this year. At the very least, Apple seems to have the basics down: reveal when ready. Don’t waste peoples’ time. Ship.
Yesterday, I noted the Playstation Network was an “awful black eye” for Sony — one of the worst tech meltdowns I can remember seeing.
This is a massive fucking nightmare now. This will go down in infamy. It will be a cautionary tale in the tech industry told for years to come.
