PlayStation’s Dad Ken Kutaragi Thinks of PS4 as His Grandchild, Hopes that it’ll make you say “Wow!”

The former CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Ken Kutaragi is also known as the “Father of PlayStation”, and now he sees himself as the grandaddy of PS4, as he expressed during an event in Tokyo. He also talked on how he wanted to implement the cloud on PS3, and hopes that PS4 will make people go "wow!" (Ken Kutaragi, PS3, PS4)

I have to say that people seem to be a lot more excited about this upcoming generation than they were about the last.

Its been a long generation. But as they say, good things come to those who wait.

I honestly think when we pick up these next gen consoles (wether it be PS4 OR Xbox) we're going to be blown away from how amazing these games will look and how fast these systems will run. I'm really excited, really really excited for what this next generation has to offer. (by the way the PS4 is going to look better and have better games. JUST SAYIN ;) )

Its awesome to see the father of PS comment on the PS4 :D

He passed the torch to Cerny.

He is still responsible for 2 of the best consoles we have ever had. He may have gone overboard with the PS3 but the man is still a legend and the PS3 is still a beat even in its 7th year.

Looking at his interview, I think he was a little too ahead of his time. He wanted to do what Gaikai is doing in PS3, and that's way before the word "Cloud" was popular!

If he had been more open minded, rather than manipulative and allowed the PS3 and the Cell to be more accessible, he likely still would have a job at Sony.

He still does have a job at Sony (I think), or is honorary chairman considered a job at a company?

Edit: He is a senior technology advisor, dont know if that counts.

He resigned in 2012 as an honorary adviser. You see in 2006 he ran for CEO of Sony but lost to Sir. Howard Stringer, that is why he stepped down back then.

He is ceo of Cellius which is owned jointly by Sony and Namco. They had three games in development for ps3 that looked awesome but sadly in seven years all they've released is Ridge Racer on Vita

the passion & devotion to gaming as a medium runs deep in Sony and that is why I choose to support them in any way I can when it come to the PS brand.

They have come along way back to the humble hungry PS1 day type Sony who had something to prove instead of the over confident & cocky Sony after the PS2 years heading into the PS3.

And whenever I see them speak in a interview or at a trade show they come across as businessmen with class & dignity.

just my opinion and I personally think Ken was about 20 years ahead of his time and the tech just wasn't there to match his visions.

hail to the king!!......
if i am playing for years now.... it's just for Mr Kutaragi creatures.
solidboss07  +   959d ago
Thanks for the PS3, Ken. It didn't achieve all that you hoped, but was still F*cking Great.
danthebios  +   959d ago
Respect always for Mr. Ken Kutaragi:)
