Sony has gone out of their way to make the PlayStation 4 as developer friendly as possible. Not only is the system architecture much simpler and easier to use this time around, Sony has also given developers lots of social tools to take advantage of.
In a recent interview, Sony PlayStation head honcho Shuhei Yoshida said that the company is currently only focusing on PlayStation 4 games, and not on non-gaming related apps.
Yoshida added that while non-gaming apps such as Netflix are important for consumers, right now the biggest focus with the PlayStation 4 are the games.
Eventually, Yoshida said, Sony will put more focus on non-gaming apps such as Netflix streaming etc., but right now, it’s all about the games and the game developers.
We’re glad Sony is putting all of their emphasis on the games at this point. While the PlayStation 4 can do a lot of things, it’s a gaming console first and foremost.
Sony will have three key party PlayStation 4 launch titles: Killzone Shadow Fall, DriveClub, and Knack.
The PlayStation 4 is even getting exclusive third party content from Watch Dogs.
