"So it was Kaz who succeeded Kutaragi-san in 2006, who decided the process had to change. And he trusted the hardware team here to start involving the software team of Worldwide Studios."

"So we were talking following Kaz’s instructions that Worldwide Studios should be involved [in PS4], and I kind of suggested ‘What about Mark?’"

All bow to the great almighty Kaz and @yosp(Shuhei Yoshida), cause they shall bring forth the goldenage. No but seriously best decision was made right there to involve the developers and Mark Cerny.

Even if the Respawn rumour is true.
I will go for PS4 for being game focused machine.

And even if rumours are true, Respawn game is gonna come to PS4 after 6 months or a year.

Which is pretty much what happened to all popular 3rd party exclusive on 360.

PS4: The Developers' Console

Mark Cerny is a high level genius that can translate his complex technical creativity to simplicity among common men.

Having stayed and worked in Japan, he is the only American game designer that has a good grasp of what works in Japan and the West. He made Crash Bandicoot as big as a hit in Japan like Mario and Sonic during the PSOne era.

Not to question anyone here but I remember reading that Mark Cerny made that effort by himself

Quote: "Realizing how passionate he was about the PlayStation 4 project, after Thanksgiving, Cerny went to Sony's then-execs Phil Harrison and Masa Chatani, "and asked if I could lead the next generation effort. And to my great surprise, they said yes."

Nonetheless I think that he was the right choice for this task. His approach of developing the console by visiting game developers and asking for feedback is simple but brilliant. They are the people that need to be asked what a console needs and that really paid off. Developers all around the world have nothing but praise for the PS4's architecture.

This is all great and wonderful -
but I still miss Kutaragi-san. Dude was brass and the real "father" of the PS; however Kaz has steered the ship swimmingly since his departure. I guess I wouldn't miss him as much and his talents if Cellius was actually real.... and Kevin Butler was still in the office.

Confirmed!

It's a good team they got right now, Kaz running Sony and Mark leading PS4 development.

The changes are for the better and I believe everyone realizes that.
It's good that the February 20th event focused on games and gamers because that should be the driving force of any console.

Ever since Kaz took over, Sony and in particular the Playstation brand have been on an upward trend

For all the people disagreeing, walker initially mentioned the Playstation 5 before changing it to 4.

"We know that people like these functions, such as Netflix, and use them a lot. And especially for those people who are not the person who purchased these consoles – like family members – they tend to use these non-game functions. So it’s not like we are no longer going to do these functions, but especially for the announcement event, we wanted to show how the game experiences will change with PS4, because that’s the biggest focus for us. Once that communication [to the public] is achieved, then probably later this year we’ll talk more about what these non-game functions [are] that we are trying to bring to PS4 as well." - Shuhei Yoshida

Exactly how it should be
