Sony Computer Entertainment President Shuhei Yoshida Has a Nintendo Wii U

The president of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios has revealed that he owns one of the competitor's new devices and doesn't think they should be compared to his company's. (Culture, Industry, Nintendo, PS Vita, PS3, Shuhei Yoshida, Sony, Wii U)

Damn right he does, I'm sure Shigeru Miyamoto has a PS3 or a Vita! This is a business and part of leading a business is to know your enemy as much as possible. (edit) ha ha, I requested him and he added me, wow!

Yeah, he's a cool dude. Real down to earth.
gokuking  +   1092d ago
I actually highly doubt Miyamoto has a PS3, or a Vita. A few years ago he didn't even know who Ratchet & Clank were.
deafdani  +   1092d ago
Well, Masahiro Sakurai has (or used to have, at least) a PS3, where he played several games.
gokuking  +   1092d ago
@deafdani Oh, no doubt Sakurai owns multiple hardware. I believe I've seen him with a few special edition PSPs, and Vitas. But of course Sakurai is not Miyamoto.
Kiddcarter  +   1092d ago
And you really believed him when he said he didn't know who they were? of course he acted like he had no idea what R&C was, at the time it was being said that he had based an entire Mario game off of something r&c did first, so yea he is going to say he doesn't know who ratchet and clank, to say otherwise would prove that he borrowed their idea to make Mario galaxy

So you mean, we can own more than one gaming system... from different companies?!


What's that? There never was a console war? You mean it was just media hype to get hits and delusions from unreasonable individuals (fanboys)?

Why, I never....

Wish more people in this community were like you and Mr. Yoshida.

Hilarious, funniest thing I've read in a while.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   1092d ago
I really wish there was a "peace treaty" amognst fanboys. But nope its impossible. This blind internet pretend fanboy Warfare will continue on for a looong time.

As of now I noticed lately the fanboyism is finally calming only cuzz theres rumblings of new consoles coming very soon. But wants the new Xbox and "Omi" get released the flame will refuel All over again.

And that's when I'm probably gonna retire from commenting here. Sorry but I can't take another generation of fanboys. Lies, trolling, doom and gloom articles, fighting with people its ridiculous. Its gaming not hating somebody because they choose a different console than you.

I'll check the news coming next gen but I dunno bout commenting.

The moment when cross-platform multiplayer becomes reality, then the console war will have it's rightfull battle place and fanboys will fight (play) together and against each other and leave gaming sites for people interested in debatin real news about the gaming industry

Me too, I love my Wii U.
Danbruno1310  +   1092d ago
I mean really how much gaming can one person take? Prob just using the game pad as a coaster and that other thing as a paper weight holding down cash money rolls.

Bills Gates has a PS4.
BitbyDeath  +   1092d ago
Bill doesn't even let his family own Apple products so i doubt he'd go anywhere near a PS4.
jmc8888  +   1092d ago
He's also a genocidal fascist, whose good ideas were luckily purchased from IBM during fire sales. MS-DOS (IBM). Windows (IBM).

So yeah, doesn't surprise me one bit that he wouldn't buy anything Apple because of MS nor 'allow his family' buy one. Yes Bill, because you're some visionary god who controls all because you can buy other people's work.

Me I don't want an overpriced, under spec'ed phone, nor need to upgrade mine every few months. By the time I need another phone we'll be on Iphone 12. Maybe I'll buy one then? Probably not, since it'll still be way too expensive for a phone.

If they made something I wanted, and was worth the cost, then I'd buy one. So I guess I won't adopt Win 8, since I really don't like Mac OS.

Buy what you like because there's legitimate reasons behind it. Don't just blindly follow one brand. It's OK to buy more than one console, and the reality is, if you want to play all the games, you need a 360/PS3/Wii U/PC. Because all of those have games the others simply won't have.

So he owns a Wii U. Why does some part of me thinks he's basically saying....."suck it trebek!"
FarCryLover182  +   1092d ago
I don't blame Bill though for banning Apple products at home...
Qrphe  +   1091d ago

He's also a genocidal fascist?

Do you even KNOW what that means? There is no room for hyberbole here son, specially when we're talking about a man that is to donate the vast majority of his wealth to charity as of his death.
ninjahunter  +   1092d ago
I work at tacobell, so i cant eat at KFC. dat logic.
ThatMiamiGuy  +   1092d ago
And yet people who do not even work for the companies, own one brand only and are completely against anything else that other companies have to offer.

Dat logic indeed lol
Beetey  +   1092d ago
My hometown has a TB/KFC. Wat naw?
SoundGamer  +   1092d ago
Haha! Mine too. But then again, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, KFC are all owned by the same company. =p
PersonaCat  +   1092d ago
Damn, you beat me to the punch lol. I have my kfc/taco bell make me a shepards pie by swapping out the famous bowl's chicken with ground beef :p Small towns FTW!
Skate-AK  +   1092d ago
The one in my town is a KFC/A&W
ninjahunter  +   1092d ago
Lol, i have one too, thats what made it come to mind :P
pixelsword  +   1092d ago
KFC and Taco Bell is owned by the same conglomerate, so you can eat there...
Qrphe  +   1091d ago
>eating at KFC in the first place

Ok guy
izumo_lee  +   1092d ago
Yoshida is such a straight up guy, very honest & down to earth. Pretty cool he has a Wii U.

So unlike the ravenous beasts that we see regularly on this site that believe that for some god forsaken reason that the Big 3 despise each other & want to see one another go down. That they are i hope like the most of us & are just regular gamers who enjoy what comes out regardless of system.
A LIVING LEGEND  +   1092d ago
I personally refuse to buy or own anything made on the moon.
Living dangerously this man,Sony exec owning a Nintendo....he obviously plans on handing in his resignation in the coming days.
dkgshiz  +   1092d ago
He technically can buy whatever the hell he wants. Unless he signed a contract that legally binds him to only support Sony made products. Which I doubt he did. Oh well, and not a single fuck was given that day.
Belking  +   1092d ago
Why wouldn't he?
Simon_Brezhnev  +   1092d ago
I thought this was a Kotaku headline. lol
1upgamer99  +   1092d ago
Duh, the guy wants to see what Nintendo does next....I mean really. Nintendo does it and the rest COPY..I am a PS3 fan, but common....Everything Nintendo does (and it may not be the best version because it gets made just that much better by others) the rest copy...controllers , Rumble, Handheld connect, GAMES, motion . Oh gosh lets not forget the games, NINTENDO did it first, and Sega a close second. Then there was Sony and Microsoft. When it comes to GAMES Nintendo HANDS DOWN IS FIRST..before you "Disagree" Look it up Nintendo has MORE 9.0 Games and more IPS than BOTH SONY and MICROSOFT PUT TOGETHER....SO you call yourself a gamer, and you have not played some of the BEST games ever made???? I call you a freaking IDIOT...and you are NOT a gamer..Prove me me that Microsoft and Sony have MORE IPS than Nintendo, and ALSO more 9.0 or greater games...REALLY...PROVE ME WRONG...
gokuking  +   1092d ago
Given your username I take it you were born in 1999? Makes sense.
1upgamer99  +   1092d ago
LOL no not 1999 1971, So I have been around for 41 years. I love all game platforms. I had a NES, Sega Master Sytem, Super NES, Sega Gen, PS1, N64, Gamecube, PS2, Dreamcast, Xbox360 (only for a year) PS3, Wii, now Wii U. My comments are very true about Nintendo, and the Copy thing. Nintendo Does it first and the rest Copy. That is not always a bad thing, as often Nintendo's ideas are sometimes improved upon. So That is why I say Nintendo does it first the rest Copy. I may have went on a rant on this disq, but that is because I get so sick of Sony(again I love my PS3)Microsoft users knocking Nintendo, when so many have not even played the games, and they bash Nintendo. Nintendo has added more than 50 IPS since 2000, some suck, but others are great. Also its funny that I made a poitive comment about a 360 game that I thought looked better on the 360 than the Wii U and had a NINTENDO fan rip me a new one. Which is funny because I am clearly a Nintendo fan, more so than any other system. Sorry about the rant.
MegaLagann  +   1092d ago
Dude, i'm a huge Nintendo fan too, but stop, you're making yourself and other Nintendo fans look bad.
miyamoto  +   1092d ago
Get a hold of yourself, brother.
calm down.
don't take this stuff too seriously.

Gaming is meant to be fun even if they don't sell very well or get high scored reviews. I mean even the most obscure japanese game can be the best in anyone's own perception.

don't let other people's opinion, lies or misinformation get to you.
Nintendo & their games aren't going anywhere.
dafegamer  +   1092d ago
its very sad to read your post
MegaLagann  +   1092d ago
And? What's so shocking by this? He works at Sony so he can't have a Nintendo console? Same applies when last year Reggie said he's a big fan of Resistance. So what? I never got fanboyism or just sticking with one system. You miss out on so much. Yes i'm a Nintendo fan, but if I stuck with just Nintendo systems then I would be missing out on games like Ni No Kuni, which is my most anticipated game next year by far. Follow games, not consoles is what i'm getting at.
A LIVING LEGEND  +   1092d ago
very similar to when Hashimoto Kageru admitted to ' playing PS2 while dreaming Dreamcast'.
A profound statement that shook the already shaken industry to it's core,now and possibly then.
metroidfusion2  +   1092d ago
Of course he does he knows who will win next gen lol and I'm surprised there aren't 100 to 300+ comments lol of. People being that are stupid or are trolling ha lol or are just hating etc etc especially with out doing research or even playing the system and dumbass people who take rumors as facts and people who think they know the future of nintendo is and all of this other dumb shit that they think they know but obviously dont
boybato  +   1092d ago
I used to work for Xbox however me and most of my colleagues owns a PS3.

RFornillos4  +   1092d ago
finally, some sense into the whole "console wars". i bet he's got an Xbox360 too.
danny818  +   1092d ago
He's not even head of Sony anymore its kaz! So i dont believ it ahah
