“The Sony Of Today Is A Different Sony To Five Years Ago” – Guerrilla Technical Director

TSA: "Speaking back in February at Sony’s PS4 reveal, Guerrilla Games’ Michiel Van Der Leeuw has said that “The Sony of today is a different Sony to five years ago,” agreeing that the company was focused on revealing a new Sony, rather than just a new console." (PS4, Sony)

It seems Sony of now understands that the Sony of the past 5-6 years isn't how things should be.

MY guess. This gen is going to give us some all time classics like N64 & PSone did.
Cam977  +   816d ago
And this gen...
Uncharted: 2
MGS4
LittleBigPlanet
Dark Souls
Demon's Souls
Fallout 3
Assassin's Creed 2
Just Cause 2
& MANY MORE

You can't say this gen is short of 'classics'. Maybe on the Xbox side of gaming, but by far this isn't the case on the PS3.

He's right. Sony's share price is way lower today than it was five years ago

*Awaits disagrees for stating a fact*
Sevir  +   816d ago
Naturally a troll would totally read the headline and make a point based on the article
Totally misinterpret everything. But sure let's just say the stock price for the successful business conglomerate is lower today than it was 5 years ago. While still being a fact was totally not the point of the article or the message.

But troll is as troll does...

LOL youre a funny guy. Fact or not lets see in the immediate future whos laughing. Sonys or your preferred system. Im guessing your on microsofts side since there is an article about Microsoft being 2nd highest in stocks since all they care about is money and screwing customers since they are still willing to pay.
kenshiro100  +   816d ago
What does share price have to do with the article?
MasterCornholio  +   816d ago
Hes talking about the direction that there taking with their consoles not stock price.

Sony doing a great job catering to gamers recently while Microsoft and Nintendo have gone crazy over the casuals.

Deal with it.

How's that trolling working out for your portfolio? Getting any offers on your stocks and bonds? No? Ok. Keep at it.

Some of you take his silly comment WAY too seriously lol.
Tultras  +   815d ago
You didn't get disagrees for stating a fact, just by the way.

At a funeral, a person doesn't go ahead and say to the deceased family " the guys dead, he's never coming back " even though it's a fact.

A bit of a wild example, but I hope you get what I mean.

Well done, Kaz!
GalacticEmpire  +   816d ago
Any and all mistakes of the past are thoroughly behind them and the restructuring under Kaz has done them wonders. The future is incredibly bright for Sony.
KwietStorm  +   816d ago
I wouldn't say it's done them wonders. They actually haven't *done* anything yet. While the PS4 looks better than breakfast in bed, it hasn't hit the market yet, and Sony still has other lines of products to sell as well. I remember back in the 90s you couldn't walk into someone's house without seeing Sony TVs and radios. Now everyone is on this Samsung love boat. I know Sony has the quality, but I would like to see them undercut Samsung on the pricing and storefront promotions.
dcbronco  +   815d ago
I think the change at the top has done wonders. Sony made a lot of dumb decisions last generation in gaming and a lot in other departments. Adding Blu-ray and the Cell in the PS3. Making Blu-ray period. Some may like it but it hasn't been what they thought it would and never will be.

But now they have made better decisions in gaming. I hope they adjust in the exclusives department. They realize streaming is better than Blu-ray for most. Only some want to keep hundreds of movies. The price on the 4k TVs is nice. That is an amazing mass market introduction. Plasmas were $15,000 at launch or more. This could have all started 3 or 4 years ago if they had listened to Howard Stringer.
sandman224  +   816d ago
All I can say is they're headed in the right direction with the ps4.
iGamerZero24  +   816d ago
Couldn't agree more and exciting times ahead
nix  +   816d ago
it just feels so positive... listening to every bit of news that comes out about Playstation.
fOrlOnhOpe57  +   816d ago
They are certainly going about things in the right way. Ok, they have had their troubles like many other big companies in recent years, but it feels like they have a certain bouyancy now which can only be good for the company and its consumers.

08 Sony was terrible. Sony brought it in '09 and everything after.
Dark5tar1  +   816d ago
I hope so, if they drop the ball like they did with the PS3 launch specifically in this economy would be a disaster.
hellvaguy  +   816d ago
Seems like the same company to me. More like some people's perceptions have changed, same company running the same hardware (until next gen comes anyway).
KwietStorm  +   816d ago
Don't think you've been paying attention to the hundred or so articles on PS4 if that's your perception. How can you say same hardware? Same approach? Same ecosystem? None of the above.

The sony of today is still a ps3, since the ps4 isn't out yet is what I was saying. Obviously the ps4 is better.
KwietStorm  +   815d ago
The Sony of today is still a PS3? What does that even mean? Sony is a lot more than PlayStation. It's the *design* and the approach with the PS4 that is completely different. That should be obvious. It doesn't matter that the thing isn't out yet. The people in this industry obviously work on more than one project at a time, and the paradigm shift internally is what he means by being a different Sony.

Ive preferred Sony since day 1 and I will never leaving. For myself Sony is untouched
