Kutaragi To Headline TGS

Ken Kutaragi is going to bring the message home himself at the Tokyo Game Show. Sony Computer Entertainment's president will be heading off the show this year, delivering a keynote address titled "Next Generation Entertainment Made by the PS3."

Joining Kutaragi will be Square Enix president Yoichi Wada. Wada will be addressing the crowd as his alter ego, the chairman of TGS organizer Computer Entertainment Software Association (CESA), and will give a speech titled "The Game Industry's Potential and Problems."

nah, don't be such a downer. It'd be more like a light applause and upset faces.

"Potential" Hasn't he said with the PS3 you are paying for potential?!?!

"Problems" Hasn't the PS3 been plagued with problems?!?!

Looks like the title sums it up nicely.

if they cut the price and add rumble i would be impressed. that would actually be a step in the right direction...

Haha this is one of the few times that I agree with you. I enjoy watching him because he's so funny and seems like he's in his own little world. At the one time I respect him because of what's he's done for the Playstation brand, and because of his vision. The problem is that he's an engineer at heart and his visions are sometimes unrealistic and he tends to speak in the same way. Should be an interesting event, I would bet that he has some more surprises up his sleeve. Adding rumble back in and reducing the price would be welcome. Showing Killzone 2 gameplay, MGS4 gameplay, FF XIII gameplay, etc would all help to correct their image. Basically, they need to write his script, keep out all the crazy stuff, show some great games and prove to people why the console is worth $600, and have him read his speech from a teleprompter.

let's all just cross our fingers and pray he doesn't say anything to give the media or the fanboys ammo.

And hopfull they wil cut the price.

Why Indie Games Fail To Keep Their Place In The Spotlight

A look into the sad trajectory of indie games from high successful releases to complete irrelevancy in just a few weeks or months.

Easy not enough developpers to add content to the game (palworld)

That's the thing with gaming there's always new experiences to have why spend months or years playing a single game when there's a new experience right around the corner.

Indie or AAA if your building your game expecting long term player counts you'll probably be disappointed as gamers often enjoy something for a few weeks and move on only to return if it's truely a classic.

Out of all the generations I've experienced there's games from 30 plus years ago I still dust off and play like super Mario bros, earthbound, vice city and san Andreas being games I treasure and revisit every few years but I'm not going back to play a game designed to keep me engaged for months on end because it's also designed to milk my wallet in most cases.

Build a great game that people love make it playable offline and ask does it matter if the concurrent player count is under 100 a year post launch more often that not it doesn't

The price of entry is too high to take chances like I used to. Was looking at V Rising and that ranges from $50-$130 CAD. That’s a lot for an indie imo. By the time it goes on sale, the player count might be dwindling. But that’s the trade-off, I guess.

I’m glad my preference is single player experiences, Indie devs got me covered 👊🏻
