The Future Of PlayStation 4 Is Looking BrightBy: Zach Walton - December 6, 2013
The PlayStation 4 launched in the middle of November 15, but that doesn’t mean we’re done learning about the console just yet. In fact, Sony has put together a few videos that invite developers and those in the business to talk about the PlayStation 4 and what the future holds for the platform.
First up is a small talk by Scott Rohde, SVP of Product Development at Worldwide Studios America for Sony Computer Entertainment. He discusses the development of the DualShock 4, the console’s hardware itself and the new experiences that remote play with PS Vita brings to the table.
If you’re wondering about the future of the platform, Rohde says that Killzone: Shadow Fall is just the tip. As the hardware matures, we’re going to see better looking games from studios big and small. During these next few years, we’ll also hopefully see games that explore new ways to play.
Moving to the development side of things, the second video features Sheldon Carter of Digital Extremes. The developer was one of the first out of the gate with Warframe – a free-to-play first-person shooter for the PS4. While there were free-to-play games on the PS3, Sony looks to further embrace this model of games business on their newest console. In the below video, you’ll see Carter touch upon what it means to be free-to-play and what it’s like to be one of the first titles of its kind on the PS4.[Image: PlayStation/YouTube]
