Andrew House: "Sony Computer Entertainment isn't Allowed to Fail Anymore with PS4"

While Sony has been fairly successful with PS3 and arguably with PS Vita (at least in Japan), the profit margins are still quite low, and Sony Computer Entertainment President Andrew House is very aware that the clock is ticking, and that a higher degree of success is necessary with the upcoming PS4.

I think the PS4 is what will make SCE a success

Abriael1429d ago

We can only hope. The outset seems promising at least.

Ame_No_Shiryuu1429d ago

the current situation is already indicating.., don't worry SCE.., it's gonna be a success console...:)

Peppino71429d ago

The 1 thing I was worried about the most is that since the ps4 is getting so much good press, what happens when a game looks substandard or under preforms? People will say the ps4 isn't what everyone thinks it is. I hope the devs do make the most of what they have to work with.

It's clear that this gen was won by Sony when Don Mattrick stepped onto the stage at E3 and basically said, "Screw you if you don't like what micro$of is doing with the bone." ....mmmm...yep

vigilante_man1429d ago

The strong PS3 finish and great games from 1st party studios, the now amazingly great for your pocket PS+ and the new found love for everything Vita will only add to the PS4 and make Sony the true powerhouse in gaming.

No other company has as much dedication, commitment and quality on so many platforms.

I really think MS should partner with Samsung and create a hand held system too!!

"Fail anymore" with PS4? It's not like they failed with the PS3

The Three Musketeers have one motto: All 4 one , one 4 all.
And one directive that says: Never underestimate the power of the darkside.

abzdine1429d ago

they're doing well with PS4 so far, they're listening to gamers, developers and they are keeping the same message.
No doubt if they keep going like this they will know nothing but success

JamieL1429d ago

@ blitz0623
From our perspective, no they didn't. As gamers the PS3 rocks, but Sony is a business. As a business the PS3 was a major failure. It never even made up its development cost as far as I know. Making $0.00 is not a business failure? I’m not 100% sure it hasn’t made it back but the PS3 posted its first profit in 6-10, and as of this year the PS3 hast lost Sony 4.95 billion USD’s. That sucks homie.

Kevin ButIer1429d ago

I have no doubt... lets be fair... they haven't even announced team ICO game, or ND, MediaM or Sony SM... they are exceeding in so many ways

GT671429d ago

Question: has anyone seen how to put disc games in ps4 yet????


nukeitall1429d ago

or this could prove the pressure to get short term gains in favor of long term benefit. Dooming the company to continued downward path.

Shareholder pressure isn't always healthy for the company.

Its a combination of ALL Sonys offerings that will make SCE a success. The PS4, PS3, and Vita are targeting the needs of different markets.

abusador1429d ago

I concur. Ps3 will still keep giving for years to come and so will the vita. They are all successes in their own right depending on how you look at it. As of now i know ps3 is making them a profit, although in its inception it was not but beyond that it is doing something that is priceless, further cementing its brand recognition and bringing gamers over to the Sony side. Because of Sonys dedication to the Ps3 and its first party studios it has made many ppl a believer in Sony as a whole and they have decided to switch or further support Sony and in my mind that is a success. Vita has started slow but in Japan has picked up traction.

GraveLord1429d ago

SCE is already successful.

Wikkid6661429d ago

You better take a look at their financials then.

elhebbo161429d ago

@wikki maybe not financially (YET) but when it comes to games SCE has always bin on top delivering great titles.

andibandit1429d ago

Sorry to break it to you, but profit, not games quantity, is what matters at the end of the day.

ZHZ901429d ago

PS4 is defintely will be the most successful console in history and this will help Sony alot.

MWong1429d ago (Edited 1429d ago )

One can only hope, it will be more successful than the PS2. If it is it means Sony has found that magic sauce again. So far the PS4 is looking amazing and seems that Sony is going back to it's winning form.

kayoss1429d ago

I think once they become successful, it will be easier for them to obtain exclusivity from developers and try to get high profile games onto the Sony brand such as Monster hunter, gears of war, etc...

Why did I get disagrees more than agrees?

truechainz1429d ago

"Why did I get disagrees more than agrees?"

I think it is because though the PS4 will a fantastic console and it will bring a lot of good money to Sony, I think it is natural to be skeptical that the PS4 will be the most successful console in history. I mean the PS2 almost sold more than the PS3 and 360 combined worldwide. I don't think we are gonna be in market where a console is going to sell that well. At least during this gen. But that is just my opinion so you shouldn't be offended by the disagrees, and it won't take away from how awesome the PS4 is going to be.

KwietStorm1429d ago

You got disagrees because there's no way you can sit there right now and say it will be the most successful console IN HISTORY. It doesn't even make sense to say such a thing.

Because the american kid trolls were awake and on line. As you can see the picture changed a bit.

SCE was a success back when it took the crown from nintendo with ps1...then dominated with ps2....they made big mistakes but still had success with ps3 and ps4 is looking to be is biggest success yet.

the differnce is with the ps4 they acually listened to both devs and customers and are delivering a very user friendly easy to develop for console at a cheaper price than a weaker console. they are in kobe in the fourth quater mode....3 seconds left.... fadaway.. swish ... underbite... fist pump... chest bump.... crowd goes wild... riots outside the staples center...

yeah, i said that just now.

TheEnigma3131429d ago

Kobe mostly bricks in the 4th quarter. Using Jordan would have made more sense. But yes, Sony is back to dominating form.

Kingthrash3601429d ago

lol this^^^ lol

truth be told kobe made more than mj but, BUT he also missed more....jordan didnt really need a 4th qtr game winner, he was busy blowing them teams out...also he had kerr,kukoch,paxon,and scottie..all whom would (and have) had 4th qtr heroics....its just some folks are too young for a mj statment is all...i stand corrected tho MJ is the guy to name.

Thatguy-3101429d ago

Sony is playstation! The brand itself is the strongest asset to company. But from what they been showing it's easy to see how well interactive all the devices under sony work together. Especially the ps4. Greatness awaits though

Deadpoolio1429d ago

Actually Sony Pictures movies/TV and Sony Music are probably more successful than the playstation brand.....I believe Sony records does own part of the rights to the Beatles music.

Death1429d ago

Not sure how you are getting disagrees with this. The PS4 preorders are what drove the investment firm to reapply pressure to seperate SCE from Sony. Looks like they want a piece of the action. Sony was very wise to deny the request.

xHeavYx1429d ago

I don't care if I get disagrees, they are probably from certain people who don't enjoy the PS brand, the typical phantom disagree
