David Cage On DualShock 4 & Beyond: Two Souls

David Cage:
“One of the features of the PlayStation 4 controller is the touchpad, for instance. These new features are very interesting to us because we think that we would like to bring casual gamers or occasional gamers or even people who don’t play at all to the medium,” he said. “I think we can only do that through what I would say are non-conventional gaming paradigms. The controller has always been to a certain extent a barrier to those non-gamers to jump into the gaming space. We’ve seen more and more people embracing gaming through those mobile devices. That’s something else that we’re watching very, very carefully. We’ll see in the future what this means.” (Beyond: Two Souls, PS3, PS4, Quantic Dream, Tag Invalid)

Spoilers in the headline of the article so don't click if you haven't watched the 35-minute demo of the game and don't intend to.

If you watched the developers conference show casing a 30 min. presentation of the demo, you see all of this occurring.

Then let me warn those who didn't.

best to just stay away from all related articles if like me you want to go in all blanked out and enjoy it as it all unfolded on you own PS3.

Thank you very much. Sites which give spoilers without warning should be banned. It destroys the very essence of gaming.

Oh, wait. It's Kotaku. They are untouchable with their moneybags here.

"These new features are very interesting to us because we think that we would like to bring casual gamers or occasional gamers or even people who don’t play at all to the medium,” he said."

Let me guess, this will be acceptable now?

I was thinking the same thing Nevin1.

Was it not acceptable at some point? The gaming industry is always trying to pull in people who have a stigma toward the video game medium. This is nothing new.

As long as it doesn't hinder the games in any way, it is great to push features that attract people who don't normally game like the rest of us.

Lol, sounds exactly like the selling points for kinect!
I was reading that just thinking, "wait a sec... I've heard this before".

But I don't care, I'm still for Sony all the way, I'm hoping to be wow (somehow) by microsoft on the 21st though.
NukaCola  +   788d ago
The difference is that Kinect presented itself as a gateway for casuals and instead of bringing in them for core gaming its been dance games and bad ideas. Not saying this will work better but at least Move/DS/Vita focuses are more core integration than just silly carnival mini games.

WTF MAN?! WHO LEADS WITH AN ARTICLE TITLE LIKE THAT!

I clicked straight onto the source page from the front page of this site and instantly I get two spoilers that I had, until now, managed to avoid completely.

Why the hell would you lead with spoilers in an article title?!
