Sony Computer Entertainment’s former CEO Ken Kutaragi, the man who pretty much gave birth to the PlayStation and beyond, discussed the importance of the upcoming PS4 release in the recent ‘Thinking of the Future of Entertainment’ meeting.
He states, “This is really happening. I didn’t think I would live long enough to see it. It’s like being a parent seeing my children finally grown up, or the sense of wonder when your grandchildren are born.”
He goes on to say, “I thought that I was the only one who envisioned this, but times change, and now there are many in the world who have that same idea as a matter of course, even because the world is fully connected now. I hope that what the platform will offer will make you say “Wow!” in spite of yourself.”
It must be amazing to see something you made turn in to something so influential, he was so proud of his creation that he would compare it to having grandchildren. It seems that the former CEO has always imagined how it would be to change the future of gaming because we are more connected than ever.
