'We Hate To See All PS4 Games Being FPS' - Yoshida

NowGamer: "Sony has proven itself over the course of the PS3's lifecycle that it's not afraid to try something different and target different markets.

ModNation Racers, LittleBigPlanet, MAG and the likes of Journey or Tokyo Jungle on the PSN Store are all names that - while not huge sellers like Uncharted - show that Sony is willing to try new things."

probably one of the most important factors for me purchasing the PS4 this christmas. Sony has a proven track record of incredible variety. Shooters are only fun for a few minutes.

TimmyShire1147d ago

Agree fully! I enjoy shooters but I'm kinda done with most of them. As you say, they only stay fun for a while. It's original ideas like Journey that I want to see more of.

shivvy241146d ago

i want the good old platformers back like Jak and Daxter , Crash etc :)

Ezz20131147d ago

well sony do bring all type of genres
that's why i'm buying ps4

abzdine1146d ago

agreed!!
it's all about variety with PlayStation.
If Sony didn't exist this generation we would never see all great platforming games (Sly, LBP..) fun games (Battle Royale, MNR, LBPK..).. many types of games are dying and thanks to Sony they are still bringing them back to us.

PS4 or nothing!

Xx-ADITYA-xX1146d ago

Games like LBP and LBP K are fun but I'm sorry... Battle Royale is just pure fu**ing SH*T!

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney1146d ago

This statement alone makes me want ps4. After Killzone and BF4 I will most likely not buy another shooter for 6 months.

Jaqen_Hghar1146d ago

a man recommends Far Cry 3 if a user hasn't tried it. A man is greatly enjoying it despite not being an FPS fan himself.

FACTUAL evidence1146d ago

Sony, please bring the jrpg back! Ps1 was your golden era with all the good rpgs made from your studios! You guys should really make an exclusive with groundbreaking graphics, phenomenal gameplay, and an amazing story! Please sony, put your moneh and time to it! I had to force myself this gen to like a genre i really wasn't interested in(fps).

3-4-51146d ago

They are fun for months if you are into them....

I'm kind of over shooters even though I love them.

I've been playing Planetside 2 since I just got a new PC and I've loved it though.

Really breathing some fresh air into the shooter genre.

That being said, it's time to move back to actual games.

This gen NEEDS to bring back JRPG's to the mainstream, bring us a ton of good SRPG's, bring back quality 3D platformers, and completely surprise us by giving us something we could have never imagined.

delboy1144d ago

It's a lie Yoshida, and only brain washed Sony boys believe you.
Ps3 has more exclusive shooters than xbox.

Warhawk (3rd person, but still a shooter)
Starkawk
MAG
Resistance 3 times
Kill Zone 2 times
Dust 514
Socom 2 times
Uncharted 3 times (yes it's a 3rd person shooter)
TLoU (also a shooter)

You know you need shooters to move the console, that's why you made so many on ps3,so stop lying, ps4 will be the same.

It's one of the things I like most about PS3 recently - games like Journey, Tokyo Jungle, Unfinished Swan, etc

More like that for PS4 please (having The Witness on stage at the big PS4 reveal is definitely a good start)

TimmyShire1147d ago

I agree. Not really bothered by The Witness but it looks interesting .

Septic1147d ago

Leave the first person shooters for third party developers because the market is terribly saturated as it is unless you have a unique idea for one.

But this is a really commendable approach from Sony; it goes to show that their promise about catering for core gamers isn't just a blunt approach of content for the sake of it but a concerted effort to offer content through innovation and a genuine interest in moving the industry forward.

Sony appear to be taking all the right steps this gen. I really can't fault any of its decisions. I don't mean this in the soppy, fanboyish way many on here go about but truly, Sony are an epitome of all the things 'true gamers' have been asking for, for a long time this gen.

Not only have they learned their lessons from their mistakes, but they really do seem to be setting themselves up to school the competition like they did in their previous glory days.

Septic1146d ago

Why thank you kind sir :)

insomnium21146d ago (Edited 1146d ago )

Truly a great comment septic. Agreed 100%. Have a well said bubble.

Speaking of 3rd party shooters I played some BF3 yesterday for the first time in months and oh boy was it fun as hell. I just fealt like sharing that lol!

solidjun51146d ago

Very well said. I like their approach. I like the variety of games they're pumping out, from FPS to strategy to even niche titles I would have never even think about, such as Flower and Journey.

Again, very well said Septic. Bubbles.

Games like puppeteer, rain, the witness, knack, drive club, the last guardian. Love how its not just about shooters.

I'll admit im a sony fanboy but surely ppl should understand that when we get spoiled with amazing games it can tend to make us do some fanboyish things but atleast I can admit it & have reasons to be a sony fanboy. I got nuttin against greenpowerz as I know he loves microsoft but the way they been for the last few years. Even I wouldnt defend sony if they treated us that way.

TimmyShire1147d ago

Me too! I like Killzone and all, but it's the more off-the-cuff ideas that I really love.

richierich1147d ago

How about more JRPGs that's what the industry is lacking

Gamer19821146d ago

Thats 3rd partys they are trying to evolve the genre and nobopdy likes the direction there heading thats why ni-no-kuni got such high scores as it went back to basics. Forget graphics and flash get a decent system in there and a great story/characters and you got a great JRPG. If you want graphics in JRPG thats great but never forget the basics and stop trying to make a new battle system! we are happy with the existing ones!

puamdefokejpn1146d ago (Edited 1146d ago )

sorry bro accidentally thumbed down,.. +bub

Agree with you completely!!!

Pyrrhus1146d ago

That + how tales continues to stay with its core mechanics. Loved Ni No Kuni, it revitalised my love for JRPG's after a stale tasting this whole generation.
